Live God’s Commandments
March 22, 2017
Dear Family of Mary!
In today’s Gospel reading, Jesus makes it clear to us that we must live the Commandments of God. They are not old fashioned or out of date. They carry in them the seeds of a beautiful life, a life that is fruitful and just, a life that is clean and trustworthy. Jesus tells us:
Jesus said to his disciples:
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets.
I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.
Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away,
not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter
will pass from the law,
until all things have taken place.
Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments
and teaches others to do so
will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven.
But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments
will be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.” (Mt 5:17-19)
Our Lady has also told us to live the Commandments of God, that our lives might be good. Here are 5 messages in which she calls us to the Commandments. Listen to what she says about the commandments and why we need them. They are for our good. You could use these messages for meditation during your Rosary today!
May 25, 2010 “Dear children! God gave you the grace to live and to defend all the good that is in you and around you, and to inspire others to be better and holier; but satan, too, does not sleep and through modernism diverts you and leads you to his way. Therefore, little children, in the love for my Immaculate Heart, love God above everything and live His commandments. In this way, your life will have meaning and peace will rule on earth. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
February 25, 2015 “Dear children! In this time of grace, I call all of you: pray more and speak less. In prayer seek the will of God and live it according to the commandments to which God calls you. I am with you and am praying with you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
January 25, 2016 “Dear children! Also today I am calling all of you to prayer. You cannot live without prayer, because prayer is a chain which brings you closer to God. Therefore, little children, in humility of heart return to God and to His commandments so that with all of your heart you are able to say: as it is in Heaven so may it be on earth. You, little children, are free to in freedom decide for God or against Him. See where Satan wants to pull you into sin and slavery. Therefore, little children, return to my heart so that I can lead you to my Son Jesus who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
June 25, 2016 “Dear children! Give thanks to God with me for the gift of my being with you. Pray, little children, and live God’s commandments that it may be good for you on earth. Today, on this day of grace, I desire to give you my motherly blessing of peace and of my love. I intercede for you with my Son and call you to persevere in prayer so that, with you, I can realize my plans. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
December 2, 2007 She blessed all of us, and all religious articles. Our Lady was very sad. All the time her eyes were filled with tears.
“Dear children! Today, while I am looking at your hearts, my heart is filled with pain and trepidation. My children, stop for a moment and look into your hearts. Is my Son, your God truly in the first place? Are His commandments truly the measure of your life? I am warning you again: without faith there is neither closeness of God nor the word of God which is the light of salvation and the light of common sense.”
Mirjana added: I painfully asked Our Lady not to leave us, and not to take her hands away from us. She painfully smiled at my request and left. This time Our Lady did not say: Thank you.
And here are the 10 Commandments. They are the bedrock of a good Confession (along with the Beatitudes and the Precepts of the Church).
The Ten Commandments:
- I am the LORD your God. You shall worship the Lord your God and Him only shall you serve.
- You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
- Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day.
- Honor your father and your mother.
- You shall not kill.
- You shall not commit adultery.
- You shall not steal.
- You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
- You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife.
- You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods.
These are core values that always lead us in the right direction!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
