March 30, 2021 Reflection – Tuesday of Holy Week

Tuesday of Holy Week   March 30, 2021 Tuesday of Holy Week Dear Family of Mary! “Reclining at table with his disciples, Jesus was deeply troubled and testified, “Amen, amen, I say to you, one of you will betray me.”  The disciples looked at one another, at a loss as to whom he meant…” (Jn 13:21-22) It is hard to predict who might be a betrayer.  Betrayal is a secret act.  One that forms silently in the heart, far from the light.  It is like a cancer that slowly grows, dividing one from family or friends because of a self-interest that demands it.  Only the tempter joins in the conversation in our hearts, urging us on to do such a deed. Lord Jesus, may our love for you grow so strong that we will never even hear the voice of temptation to betray you.  May we give you everything we are and have so there will be no reason to do such a dark deed.  Be our only Lord and God. May 2, 2017 “Dear children, I am calling you to pray, not to ask for but to offer sacrifice – sacrificing yourselves. I am calling you to reveal the truth and merciful love. I am praying to my Son for you, for your faith which is all the more diminishing in your hearts. I am imploring Him to help you with the Divine Spirit, as I also desire to help you with my motherly spirit. My children, you must be better. Only those who are pure, humble, and filled with love sustain the world – they are saving themselves and the world. My children, my Son is the heart of the world. He should be loved and prayed to, and not always betrayed anew. Therefore, you, apostles of my love, spread the faith in the hearts of people by your example, your prayer and merciful love. I am beside you; I will help you. Pray for your shepherds to have all the more light, so as to be able to illuminate all those who live in darkness. Thank you.” In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

March 29, 2021 Reflection – Monday of Holy Week

Monday of Holy Week   March 29, 2021 Monday of Holy Week Dear Family of Mary! March 25, 2021 “Dear children! Also, today I am with you to tell you: Little children, [he] who prays does not fear the future and does not lose hope. You are chosen to carry joy and peace, because you are mine. I have come here with the name ‘Queen of Peace’ because the devil wants peacelessness and war, he wants to fill your heart with fear of the future – but the future is God’s. That is why, be humble and pray, and surrender everything into the hands of the Most High Who created you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” Our Lady poured heavenly light into our souls through this message.  From the moment I first heard it, I felt the power of the Holy Spirit resting in my soul, and my heart was strengthened with hope.  Every time I am tempted to fear or worry about the future now, I turn to this message and my fear and worry dissolve.  Thank you, dearest Mother, for speaking the truth to us in such a powerful way. In this serious and powerful week, Holy Week 2021, we must spend our energies focused on Jesus.  Jesus is everything for us this week.  We don’t want to miss a moment with Him.  So my reflections will be short.  Today let’s remember what Mary did for Jesus during dinner at her house: “Mary took a liter of costly perfumed oil made from genuine aromatic nard and anointed the feet of Jesus and dried them with her hair; the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil.” (John 12:3) Can we kneel down at Jesus’ feet, and break open our hearts to pour out upon His feet the oil of our love, of our gratitude, of our joy at being forgiven, of our total dedication to Him who has first loved us? Jesus, allow us to show you our love as we kneel at your feet today. In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!
