April 14, 2020 Reflection – Tuesday of Easter Week, Divine Mercy Novena Day 5

(c)Mary TV – 2020 April 14, 2020 Tuesday of Easter Week Divine Mercy Novena Day 5Dear Family of Mary! Today we pray for the reunification of all Christians. How did the followers of Jesus Christ end up so splintered? Is there not one Lord? But we also know that the enemy of us all is the great “Divider”.  The enemy of our souls has worked tirelessly to break us apart since the beginning of time. And so, this is a very important prayer intention. Unity. Unity in the Faith, the Love and the Truth of Jesus, Our Lord.  If only… Our Lady has given us many messages about unity – here are two: September 25, 1995 “Dear Children! Today I invite you to fall in love with the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. Adore Him, little children, in your Parishes and in this way you will be united with the entire world. Jesus will become your friend and you will not talk of Him like someone whom you barely know. Unity with Him will be a joy for you and you will become witnesses to the love of Jesus that He has for every creature. Little children, when you adore Jesus you are also close to me. Thank you for having responded to my call.” January 25, 2005 “Dear children! In this time of grace again I call you to prayer. Pray, little children, for unity of Christians, that all may be one heart. Unity will really be among you inasmuch as you will pray and forgive. Do not forget: love will conquer only if you pray, and your heart will open. Thank you for having responded to my call.” Love is the answer, the uniting love of Jesus which can change us and bring us into one heart of love for Him.  May it be so: Divine Mercy Novena, Day Five: Today bring to Me THE SOULS OF THOSE WHO HAVE SEPARATED THEMSELVES FROM MY CHURCH, and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. During My bitter Passion they tore at My Body and Heart, that is, My Church. As they return to unity with the Church, My wounds heal and, in this way, they alleviate My Passion. Most Merciful Jesus, Goodness Itself, You do not refuse light to those who seek it of You. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who have separated themselves from Your Church. Draw them by Your light into the unity of the Church, and do not let them escape from the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart; but bring it about that they, too, come to glorify the generosity of Your mercy. Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of those who have separated themselves from Your Son’s Church, who have squandered Your blessings and misused Your graces by obstinately persisting in their errors. Do not look upon their errors, but upon the love of Your own Son and upon His bitter Passion, which He underwent for their sake, since they, too, are enclosed in His Most Compassionate Heart. Bring it about that they also may glorify Your great mercy for endless ages. Amen.
