Dear Family of Mary!
“My heart is suffering. Sins are multiplying, they are too numerous. But with the help of those of you who are humble, modest, filled with love, hidden and holy, my heart will triumph.” (July 2, 2027)
Mirjana told us that Our Lady was sad. Our Lady, herself told us that her heart is suffering. She sees the world from heaven, she knows the choices being made, the sins that are being committed, the sorrows that are being multiplied. Her compassionate heart must be breaking. But she is courageous. She turns immediately from that sorrow to the hope of her plan. With our help, with the help of chosen souls who are humble, modest, filled with love, hidden and holy, she says that she can win against evil. Her heart will triumph.
Our Lady’s hope is for us. We are the army that Our Lady is building, an army of those who are humble, modest, filled with love, hidden and holy. We can see how over these years of Our Lady’s presence in Medjugorje she has been forming us in humility, love, hiddenness and holiness. Her messages are a school of holiness. She has taught us to pray with the heart, to live our whole lives for Jesus, to fast, to stay close to the Sacraments, to be humble children of Mother Church. We are her army.
I found a passage from St. Faustina’s Diary in which Jesus describes the chosen souls who are hidden but shine brilliantly, dispelling the darkness.
The Lord has given me to know how much He desires the perfection of chosen souls.
Chosen souls are, in My hand, lights which I cast into the darkness of the world and with which I illumine it. As stars illumine the night, so chosen souls illumine the earth. And the more perfect a soul is, the stronger and the more far-reaching is the light shed by it. It can be hidden and unknown, even to those closest to it, and yet its holiness is reflected in souls even to the most distant extremities of the world. (Diary 1601)
Jesus and Mary are calling us to be hidden, modest, humble, filled with love and holy, so that we can bring about the triumph of their hearts in this dark and sorrowful world. It doesn’t matter if anyone ever knows our efforts to become holy, the effect will be the same. The light of Christ will penetrate souls and save them, if we do our job.
May the Triumph happen! May it be so!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
