June 2, 2020 Reflection – My Motherly love desires that you be ready.

(c) Mary TV   June 2, 2020 Dear Family of Mary! Our Lady is with us! She is with us in Medjugorje. She has come to be with us and to bless us, to bring us faith, hope and love. She has been sent to guide us at this time. She has given us many messages through the visionaries, messages that point us in one direction, towards God. Many people have mentioned to me lately that they are experiencing fear of the future. In our countries and societies there is a good amount of turmoil and unrest. It is easy to become fearful when we do not know what his coming. But Our Lady of Medjugorje is with us, and we should not let fear enter our hearts. She has come to help us. St. Peter, in his 2nd letter wrote this about the fear of the future: Beloved: Wait for and hasten the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved in flames and the elements melted by fire. But according to his promise we await new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. Therefore, beloved, since you await these things, be eager to be found without spot or blemish before him, at peace. And consider the patience of our Lord as salvation. Therefore, beloved, since you are forewarned, be on your guard not to be led into the error of the unprincipled and to fall from your own stability. But grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory now and to the day of eternity. Amen. (2 Peter 3:12-15a, 17-18) St. Peter was counseling his brethren about what was important when waiting for the day of the Lord. What should we do when we know that our world will end one day, and judgement will come? What should we do?? He says:“be eager to be found without spot or blemish before him, at peace. And consider the patience of our Lord as salvation.” Are we supposed to get nervous and try to figure out how we can protect ourselves or see into the future events to know what to do? No, we are to consider the patience of the Lord as salvation. And we are not called to lose our peace, and fall from our own stability, but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! This advice is echoed in Our Lady’s messages. Take this one from 2018: August 02 2018 “Dear children, with a motherly love I am calling you to open hearts to peace; to open hearts to my Son, so that in your hearts love for my Son may sing, because only out of that love peace comes in the soul. My children, I know that you have goodness, I know that you have love – a merciful love, but many of my children still have a closed heart. They think that they can do it without directing their thoughts towards the Heavenly Father who illuminates-towards my Son who is always with you anew in the Eucharist and who desires to listen to you. My children, why do you not speak to Him? The life of each of you is important and precious, because it is a gift from the Heavenly Father for eternity. Therefore, do not ever forget to keep on thanking Him: speak to Him. I know, my children, that what is to come afterwards is unknown to you, but when your hereafter comes you will receive all the answers. My motherly love desires that you be ready. My children, by your life keep putting good feelings in the hearts of the people whom you meet, feelings of peace, goodness, love and forgiveness. Through prayer, hearken to what My Son is saying and act accordingly. Anew, I am calling you to prayer for your shepherds, for those whom my Son has called. Remember that they need prayers and love. Thank you.” The Mother urges us to believe that our lives are precious to God and place them in His hands. The way to face the future is with trust and peace, with love for God and for our brothers and sisters. She tells us that “what is to come afterwards is unknown to you, but when your hereafter comes you will receive all the answers.” We are not meant to know the future. We are meant to know God! So, don’t fret about what is happening or what is to come. Pray with all your heart and grow in love for God, stay close to Our Lady, and believe!!!In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan ©Mary TV 2020
