May 4, 2021 Reflection – Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid!

Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid! May 4, 2021 Dear Family of Mary! Jesus said to his disciples: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.” (John 14:27-28) Our Lady has come to us in Medjugorje as “The Queen of Peace!” She has been sent by the Father to bring us back into the peace that only God can give. The word peace occurs in hundreds of her messages. It is the reason she has come in this time. Our Lady wants us to receive the peace that only God can give. Jesus came to give us His peace, a peace that is not of this world. The peace that Jesus came to give us is the peace between each one of us and His Father. It is the re-establishment of peace between we humans and our Creator. That peace was lost from the very beginning, when Adam and Eve disobeyed the Father and took their lives into their own hands. They broke trust with God, and established the great divide. Though they had their freedom, they no longer had the loving intimacy of their Father God. They tried to guide themselves, and fell further and further away from His protective love and wisdom. Jesus became one of us in order to heal that divide and provide the path back into the Father’s embrace. And He did it! The way leads though His Death and Resurrection. As we follow Jesus, we receive that peace which is not of this world, the peace of God, the peace of a restored relationship with our loving Father-God. In that relationship, there can be no troubled hearts, no fear!! Our Lady wants us to find that path. Indeed, she had a big part in providing it! Here are a few messages in which she calls us to that path, to that peace that Jesus gives us. May these messages fill us with confidence and peace in God: June 25, 1987 “Dear children! Today I thank you and I want to invite you all to God’s peace. I want each one of you to experience in your heart that peace which God gives. I want to bless you all today. I am blessing you with God’s blessing and I beseech you, dear children, to follow and to live my way. I love you, dear children, and so not even counting the number of times, I go on calling you and I thank you for all that you are doing for my intentions. I beg you, help me to present you to God and to save you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” January 25, 2000 “Dear children! I call you, little children, to pray without ceasing. If you pray, you are closer to God and He will lead you on the way of peace and salvation. That is why I call you today to give peace to others. Only in God is there true peace. Open your hearts and become those who give a gift of peace and others will discover peace in you and through you and in this way you will witness God’s peace and love which He gives you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” December 25, 2002 “Dear children! This is a time of great graces, but also a time of great trials for all those who desire to follow the way of peace. Because of that, little children, again I call you to pray, pray, pray, not with words but with the heart. Live my messages and be converted. Be conscious of this gift that God has permitted me to be with you, especially today when in my arms I have little Jesus – the King of Peace. I desire to give you peace, and that you carry it in your hearts and give it to others until God’s peace begins to rule the world. Thank you for having responded to my call.” December 25, 2011 “Dear children! Also today, in my arms I am carrying my Son Jesus to you, for Him to give you His peace. Pray, little children, and witness so that in every heart, not human but God’s peace may prevail, which no one can destroy. It is that peace in the heart which God gives to those whom He loves. By your baptism you are all, in a special way called and loved, therefore witness and pray that you may be my extended hands to this world which yearns for God and peace. Thank you for having responded to my call.” September 2, 2005 “Dear children, I, as a mother come to and am showing you how much your God, your Father loves you. And you? Where are you, my children? What takes the first place in your hearts? Why do you not put my Son in the first place? My Children, allow God’s blessings to fall upon you. Let God’s peace overcome you. Peace, that my Son gives, only He.” December 25, 2002 “Dear children! Today, on the day of love and peace, with Jesus in my arms, I call you to prayer for peace. Little children, without God and prayer you cannot have peace. Therefore, little children, open your heart so that the King of Peace may be born in your heart. Only in this way, you can witness and carry God’s peace to this peaceless world. I am with you and bless you with my motherly blessing.” In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan (c)Mary TV 2021
