March 4, 2021 Reflection – Wars can be suppressed!

Wars can be supressed! March 4, 2021 Dear Family of Mary! “…I repeat to you, little children, that with prayer and fasting also wars can be suppressed…” (February 25, 2021) Our Lady repeats many things in her messages!  Mothers always repeat.  They know that children need to hear important things over and over again, until those truths sink deeply into their working memory.  “Wash your hands before you sit down to the table.” “Brush your teeth before you go to bed.”  “Say thank you!”  “Pray the Rosary every day.” Our mothers have been given a powerful role in our development. And so, Our Heavenly Mother also repeats many things to us.  And one of them is: “…I repeat to you, little children, that with prayer and fasting also wars can be suppressed…” Truly, Our Lady does not want us to forget this good advice.  War is always a possibility in our poor world.  There is so much brokenness, so many souls in great distress and in great sin.  War is always possible when sin abounds, because the devil can incite it so easily in such an environment.  Nothing makes the devil happier than when we are destroying one another. Our job is to bring the healing grace of Jesus upon those souls in distress and sin, through our prayer and fasting.  God will accept our prayer and fasting and respond with His miraculous graces of conversion and peace. Here are three messages in which Our Lady spoke of wars being stopped through prayer and fasting.  Let’s listen to Our Mother’s repeated call and take it deeply into our hearts. July 21, 1982 “The best fast is on bread and water. Through fasting and prayer, one can stop wars, one can suspend the laws of nature. Charity cannot replace fasting. Those who are not able to fast can sometime replace it with prayer, charity and a confession; but everyone, except the sick, must fast.” January 25, 2001 “Dear children! Today I call you to renew prayer and fasting with even greater enthusiasm until prayer becomes a joy for you. Little children, the one who prays is not afraid of the future and the one who fasts is not afraid of evil. Once again, I repeat to you: only through prayer and fasting also wars can be stopped – wars of your unbelief and fear for the future. I am with you and am teaching you little children: your peace and hope are in God. That is why draw closer to God and put Him in the first place in your life. Thank you for having responded to my call.” February 25, 2003 “Dear children! Also today I call you to pray and fast for peace. As I have already said and now repeat to you, little children, only with prayer and fasting can wars also be stopped. Peace is a precious gift from God. Seek, pray and you will receive it. Speak about peace and carry peace in your hearts. Nurture it like a flower which is in need of water, tenderness and light. Be those who carry peace to others. I am with you and intercede for all of you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” St. Joseph, please help us to hear Our Mother’s call to prayer and fasting! Dear St. Joseph, foster father of us all, we love you! You so faithfully stayed by the side of Mary when she gave Jesus to the world.  Help us now in our turn stay faithfully by her side as she gives Him to us anew…  She told us in this message: “Dear children!  Today I call you to pray and fast for my intentions, because Satan wants to destroy my plan. Here I began with this parish and invited the entire world. Many have responded, but there is an enormous number of those who do not want to hear or accept my call. Therefore, you who have said ‘yes’, be strong and resolute.  Thank you for having responded to my call.” (August 25, 2011) Dear St. Joseph, you were always strong and resolute – in Bethlehem, in Egypt, and in Nazareth.  You never wavered from the side of Mary.  Help us to be strong and resolute and to never waver from her side.  “My children, be my apostles who have not lived in vain. Do not forget that you will come before the Heavenly Father and tell Him about yourself. Be ready!”  (April 2, 2013) Dear St. Joseph, help us to be faithful to the call of Our Lady and to witness to her presence in these days.  St. Joseph, pray for us!! PS. Denis and I have recorded the Spiritual Warfare Prayers and posted them on the Mary TV website so you can pray them along with us! Here is the link:
