November 3, 2022 Reflection – I have found my lost sheep!

I have found my lost sheep!   November 3, 2022 Dear Family of Mary! In the Gospel reading for today, Jesus tells the Pharisees and Scribes how much He loves the lost, those who need His mercy. This merciful love confounded the leaders of Israel, but should be our greatest joy! Listen to His beautiful, merciful heart: A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke 15:1-10: The tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to listen to Jesus, but the Pharisees and scribes began to complain, saying, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” So Jesus addressed this parable to them. “What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert and go after the lost one until he finds it? And when he does find it, he sets it on his shoulders with great joy and, upon his arrival home, he calls together his friends and neighbors and says to them, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you, in just the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who have no need of repentance. Our Lady gave a beautiful message to us that echoes Jesus’ merciful words. She wants us to be just like her Son: December 2, 2016  “Dear children, my motherly heart is crying as I am looking at what my children are doing. Sins are multiplying, the purity of soul is all the less important; my Son is being forgotten – honored all the less; and my children are being persecuted. That is why, you my children, apostles of my love, with soul and heart invoke the name of my Son. He will have the words of light for you. He manifests Himself to you, He breaks the bread with you and gives you the words of love so that you may transform them into merciful acts and, thus, be witnesses of truth. That is why, my children, do not be afraid. Permit my Son to be in you. He will make use of you to care for the wounded and to convert lost souls. Therefore, my children, return to the prayer of the Rosary. Pray it with feelings of goodness, sacrifice and mercy. Pray, not only with words, but with merciful acts… Pray with love for all people. My Son, by His sacrifice, exalted love. Therefore, live with Him so that you may have strength and hope, that you may have the love which is life and which leads to eternal life. Through God’s love, I am also with you, and will lead you with motherly love. Thank you..” Mirjana said that Our Lady was very sad. Our Lady has mercy and love for us, because she is one with her Son, Jesus. She teaches us that same love and mercy, so that we can help Jesus reach his lost sheep. Let’s follow them on the way, finding those who need the love of God. In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan (c) Mary TV 2022
