January 8, 2024 Reflection – the Baptism of the Lord – Jesus, our safe harbor

Jesus, our safe harbor   January 8, 2024 The Baptism of the Lord Dear Family of Mary! Today Jesus begins in a sense his public ministry. He was baptized by John before a crowd of people, and the Holy Spirit descended upon Him. From then on, Jesus became a beacon of hope and light for all who encountered Him. He remains that beacon for us today. He is our only way. Our Lady tells us as much in this message: August 25, 2016  “Dear children! Today I desire to share Heavenly joy with you. You, little children, open the door of your heart so that hope, peace and love, which only God gives, may grow in your heart. Little children, you are too bound to the earth and earthly things, that is why, Satan is rolling you like the wind rolls the waves of the sea. Therefore, may the chain of your life be prayer with the heart and Adoration of my Son Jesus. Give over your future to Him so that, in Him, you may be joy and an example with your lives to others. Thank you for having responded to my call.” What could Our Lady mean by “the chain of your life”? One thought is that of a boat, which is trying to dock in a safe harbor. If the boat is not chained to the moorings in the harbor, it will be buffeted and driven out to sea. But the boat that is safely moored to a dock by a chain, will remain in peace by the shore. It is too true that the world is undergoing a terrible storm of sin that is destroying lives. If the boat of our lives is not moored to the safety of Jesus, it will be blown to sea and lost in the chaos. Prayer with the heart and Adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament can safely moor us to the safety of God’s love, hope, peace and love! There we are sheltered from every storm. There we are safe and at peace. May 2024 be a year of Heavenly Joy, that comes from Our Lady’s heart to us!! In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan (c) Mary TV 2024
