November 27, 2023 Reflection – Prayer for Peace and good deeds!

Prayer for peace and good deeds   November 27, 2023 Dear Family of Mary! Here, again, is the message from Our Lady of Medjugorje for November 25, 2023: Dear children! May this time be interwoven with prayer for peace and good deeds, so that the joy of the expectation of the King of Peace may be felt in your hearts, families and in the world which does not have hope. Thank you for having responded to my call. (November 25, 2023) Our Lady used a word I have not heard her say before: interwoven. “May this time be interwoven with prayer for peace and good deeds…” This message is given just before Advent and so we can assume she is telling us how to live this time of Advent. In the message she used an image that I am sure she was well acquainted with during her life on earth. Women in the Middle East worked very hard. They must have had to weave cloth to make clothing. If they were poor they could not buy cloth, so they would have to do the weaving themselves. I suspect Our Lady knew how to weave. She knows that the threads for the weaving must interlock in such a way so that the cloth will be strong, tight, and have no gaps. She wants us to weave together the threads of our life so that what we do will be strong, tight and have no gaps. The main threads she mentioned to us are prayer for peace and good deeds. These threads in our life must fit together and make a strong cloth. Prayer for peace is essential for the whole world right now. All men need peace in order to live and grow properly. Prayers for peace are essential. And good deeds create peace where we live. Our generosity, service of others, and kindness can give peace to our neighbors. So with these two threads we can make peace a reality! May we find our way to interweave our prayer for peace and our good deeds this Advent, as Mother has asked!! May it be so! In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan (c) Mary TV 2023
