Believing in Eternal Life April 22, 2021 Dear Family of Mary! “O my God, how I pity those people who do not believe in eternal life; how I pray for them that a ray of mercy would envelop them too, and that God would clasp them to His fatherly bosom.” (Diary 780) St. Faustina wrote these words in her Diary. She had been given visions of Heaven, Hell and Purgatory. She was very aware of life after death. For her, it was unthinkable to not attain life with Jesus, forever. But, we see in our day that many people live with a practical atheism which tells them that there is no life after death, no consequences for their choices in this life, nothing to live for but this life. These poor souls are in such danger. Our Lady has spoken to us so many times about heaven, eternity, life forever with her Son. She is a good mother, and does not want us to walk in the dark. She does not want anyone to be lost for eternity. Here is a beautiful message she gave in 2019, in which she pleads with us to understand our future and to help her bring souls unto God: October 2, 2019: “Dear children, the will and the love of the Heavenly Father make it so that I am among you, that I, with a motherly love, may help the growth of faith in your heart, for you to be able to truly comprehend the purpose of earthly life and the greatness of the heavenly one. My children, the earthly life is the way to eternity, to truth, and to life – to my Son. I desire to lead you on that way. You, my children – you who always thirst for more love, truth, and faith – need to know that there is only one spring from which you can drink. It is trust in the Heavenly Father; it is trust in His love. Abandon yourselves completely to His will and do not be afraid. Everything that is best for you, everything that leads you to eternal life, will be given to you. You will comprehend that the purpose of life is not always to want and take, but to love and give. You will have true peace and true love. You will be apostles of love. By your example, you will make it so that those children who do not know my Son and His love may desire to come to know Him. My children, apostles of my love, adore my Son with me and love Him above all. Always strive to live in His truth. Thank you.” Our Lady wants us to live in God’s truth and the knowledge of eternal life, and draw as many souls into that truth as possible. She wants us to pray for and be examples for those who do not yet know Jesus. If we live out of the truth of God and the reality of eternity, we will be examples for those who do not know it yet. But it takes courage. The kind of courage that comes from receiving the love of God for us in prayer. May we pray, pray, pray, in these days for the courage that comes from love, so that we can give the love to those who do not know God. It will be a gift for them that lasts forever…. In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph! Cathy Nolan ©Mary TV 2021 P.S. Thank you to all who have donated to the Fiber Optic project! We are witnessing a miracle here! So many of you are donating!! Thank you!!!
