“I am with you…part 2” April 16, 2021 Dear Family of Mary! Our Lady has been with us for almost 40 years now, in this most extraordinary way! She is truly present in Medjugorje. We experience her nearness in such an intimate way, through her loving signs and gifts to us. But we know there is a very important reason for her coming. She has been sent by the Father to draw us into the safety of His love at this very decisive moment. She explains to us: “Dear children! I am with you even if you are not conscious of it. I want to protect you from everything that Satan offers you and through which he wants to destroy you. As I bore Jesus in my womb, so also, dear children, do I wish to bear you into holiness. God wants to save you and sends you messages through men, nature, and so many things which can only help you to understand that you must change the direction of your life. Therefore, little children, understand also the greatness of the gift which God is giving you through me, so that I may protect you with my mantle and lead you to the joy of life. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (March 25, 1990) Our Lady is with us to protect us with her mantle and to lead us to the joy of life! She has come to stand against the enemy and protect her children. She wants to help us in all our trials and struggles. St. Faustina experienced this same daily help from Our Lady : December 9, 1936. This morning, I left for Pradnik. Sister Chrysostom drove me here. I have a private room to myself; I am very much like a Carmelite. When Sister Chrysostom had left and I was alone, I steeped myself in prayer, entrusting myself to the special protection of the Mother of God. She alone is always with me. She, like a good Mother, watches over all my trials and efforts. (St. Faustina’s Diary, 798) Like a good Mother, she watches over us in our trials and efforts too. She even carries us in her womb as she did Jesus, to bear us into holiness! What a mother!! Here is another section of our little litany: A litany of Our Lady’s Presence: You can respond “Thank you for being with me!”: I am with you and I love you with the immeasurable love of Jesus. I am with you and I desire to take you into my heart and protect you, but you have not yet decided. Therefore, dear children, I am seeking for you to pray, so through prayer you would allow me to help you. I am with you and I intercede for you with God, that He protect you. I am with you and your suffering is also mine. I am with you and I desire to lead you on the path to salvation that Jesus gives you. I am with you and I am waiting for you. I am with you and each day I bless you with my maternal blessing so that Our Lord may fill you abundantly with His grace for your daily life. I am with you and I wish to reveal to you and show you the God who loves you. Today again I would like to say to you that I am with you also in these troubled days during which satan wishes to destroy all that my Son Jesus and I are building. Dear children, it is a grace that I am with you. That is why you should accept and live my messages for your own good. I love you and that is why I am with you, in order to teach you and to lead you to a new life of conversion and renunciation. I am with you and I guide you into a new time, a time which God gives you as grace so that you may get to know him more. I am with you and place you all under my mantle. And, dear children, do not forget that I am with you and I am helping you with my prayer that God may give you the strength to love. I bless and love you with my motherly love. I am with you and I intercede before God for each one of you because, dear children, each one of you is important in my plan of salvation. I am with you and bless all of you day by day. Dear children, these are special times and, therefore, I am with you to love and protect you; to protect your hearts from satan and to bring you all closer to the heart of my Son, Jesus. I am with you and I intercede before God for you but also I wait for your hearts to open up to my messages. Dear children! I am with you and I rejoice today because the Most High has granted me to be with you and to teach you and to guide you on the path of perfection. Dearest Mother, our lives have been changed by your presence with us. We are your children, now, in a very real way. Please do not leave us. Help us to grow in our awareness of your presence in our everyday lives. We want to help you in the great plan for the salvation of mankind that the Father has given to you and through you, to us. May your heart be our guide and your motherly presence be our strength! Amen In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph! Cathy Nolan ©Mary TV 2021 P.S. Thank you to all who have donated towards our “Fiber Optic Internet Project” that we announced on Wednesday! We are in awe at how quickly and generously you shipmates have responded!! As we said on Wednesday during the Rosary, we need to provide a Fiber Optic internet connection to our main channel server in Texas. It will cost about $45,000!!! But we have faith that Our Lady wants this connection, so that Mary TV will have a strong link to the world for the days ahead. You can donate on our website using the “Donate” link at the top right hand side of the page. Thank you so much!!!!
