July 6, 2020 Reflection – The Mother intercedes for us!

    (c) Mary TV July 6, 2020 St. Maria Goretti Dear Family of Mary! “Dear children! I am listening to your cries and prayers, and am interceding for you before my Son Jesus, who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Return, little children, to prayer and open your hearts in this time of grace and set out on the way of conversion. Your life is passing and, without God, does not have meaning. This is why I am with you to lead you towards holiness of life, so that each of you may discover the joy of living. I love you all, little children, and am blessing you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (June 25, 2020) “Dear children! I am listening to your cries and prayers, and am interceding for you before my Son Jesus, who is the Way, the Truth and the Life…” Our Lady began this message with this comforting sentence. She told us she is listening to our cries and prayers. She hears us. She is tuned in to us! She knows what each one of us is going through, and she is aware of our sufferings and fears. She wants us to know that she hears us! And what does she do with the information she is getting from us? She turns around and tells Jesus. She takes our petitions and fearful cries and she give them to Jesus, who is the only answer to all our fears and worries in these days. I think we should stop and really take this in. We have a direct line to God! It is Our Lady!! Our shipmate, Brother Mark, sent me this encouraging story from early church history today: There is an old pius tradition in which St. Peter went to see Our Lady before her Assumption. The Apostles were all called to give their farewells to the Mother of God. St. Peter when he went to see Our Lady said, “Mother when you see Jesus tell Him I love Him.” Our Lady responded, “Peter, He already knows that.” St Peter then said, “Yes, but I want Him to hear that I love Him from YOUR lips!” That’s what we have been given each day through Medjugorje. We pray and Our Lady from Her lips and Immaculate Heart offers our prayers to the Trinity. (Mark of the Mother of God OCDS) Doesn’t this give us peace of heart! St. Peter knew the efficacy of Our Lady’s intercession. He knew that a love note sent to Jesus through Mary would be oh so much sweeter!! All our needs and fears and worries and questions and problems and difficulties and desires will reach the ear of Jesus through Mary. We want Jesus to hear them from HER lips!! Yes, Yes, Yes!!! Take heart!! We are in very good hands with the Mother. Just keep crying out to her and praying to her, and she will take care of it all. In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan ©Mary TV 2020 PS.
