January 8, 2020 Reflection – Perfect love casts out fear!

(c) Mary TV 2020   January 8, 2020   Dear Family of Mary! “…My children, give to my Son love for your neighbors, give words of consolation, compassion and acts of justice to your neighbors. Everything that you give to others, apostles of my love, my Son accepts as a gift. I am also with you, because my Son desires for my love, as a ray of light, to bring your souls to life; for me to help you in the search for peace and eternal happiness. Therefore, my children, love one another, be united through my Son, be children of God who all together, with full, open and pure heart, pronounce the ‘Our Father’. And do not be afraid!    Thank you.”  (January 2, 2020) Our Lady’s message reflects this wonderful reading for Holy Mass today. Let’s take time to pray over both of them: 1John 4: 11-18 Beloved, if God so loved us,we also must love one another.No one has ever seen God.Yet, if we love one another, God remains in us,and his love is brought to perfection in us. This is how we know that we remain in him and he in us,that he has given us of his Spirit.Moreover, we have seen and testifythat the Father sent his Son as savior of the world.Whoever acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God,God remains in him and he in God.We have come to know and to believe in the love God has for us. God is love, and whoever remains in love remains in God and God in him.In this is love brought to perfection among us,that we have confidence on the day of judgmentbecause as he is, so are we in this world.There is no fear in love,but perfect love drives out fearbecause fear has to do with punishment,and so one who fears is not yet perfect in love. Our Lady tells us to love one another, be united through her Son, be children of God…and to not be afraid! Why? Because “Perfect love drives out fear.”  “. This is what we are learning from Mother Mary. She is bringing us into the perfect love of God. Thank you, dearest Mother. Thank you, our Queen of Peace and of Divine Mercy!   In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!Cathy Nolan©Mary TV 2020
