St. Charles Borromeo

Dear Family of Mary!

Our Lady gave us an incredible message on Wednesday. I feel we should take time to pray over it, individually, this weekend. We are nearing the end of the Jubilee Year of Mercy. We are nearing the end of the liturgical year. And we are nearing a time of decision in the United States, because of the election. I believe there are incredible graces available to us at this time. Divine Mercy abounds. It is important that we pray, pray, pray, inorder to open our hearts to the graces we are being offered and that we so desparately need at this time.

Our Lady says to us:

Dear children, to come to you and to make myself known to you is a great joy for my motherly heart. It is a gift from my Son for you and for others who are coming.


As a mother I am calling you: love my Son above everything.


In order to love Him with all your heart, you need to come to know Him. You will come to know Him through prayer. Pray with the heart and with your feelings.


To pray means to think of His love and sacrifice. To pray means to love, to give, to suffer and to offer. I am calling you, my children, to be apostles of prayer and love. 


My children, it is a time of vigilance. In this vigil I am calling you to prayer, love and trust. 


As my Son will be looking in your hearts, my motherly heart desires for Him to see unconditional trust and love in them. The united love of my apostles will live, will conquer and will expose evil. 


My children, I was a chalice of the God-man; I was God’s instrument. That is why I am calling you, my apostles, to be a chalice of the true and pure love of my Son. 


I am calling you to be an instrument through which all those who have not come to know the love of God-who have never loved-may comprehend, accept and be saved. 


Thank you, my children. (November 2, 2016)

May we all come before Our Lord and pray for mercy to flow out upon the world. May we become chalices that are clean and pure, capable of receiving the love of Jesus, and may we pour it out on this suffering world. May we hasten the Day of Mercy, the Day of Our Lady’s Triumph, through our surrender to Her Son. May we be instruments of His love and peace.

Let us pray:

O Greatly Merciful God, Infinite Goodness, today all mankind calls out from the abyss of its misery to Your mercy – to Your compassion, O God; and it is with its mighty voice of misery that it cries out. Gracious God, do not reject the prayer of this earth’s exiles! O Lord, Goodness beyond our understanding, Who are acquainted with our misery through and through, and know that by our own power we cannot ascend to You, we implore You: anticipate us with Your grace and keep on increasing Your mercy in us, that we may faithfully do Your holy will all through our life and at death’s hour. Let the omnipotence of Your mercy shield us from the darts of our salvation’s enemies, that we may with confidence, as Your children, await Your final coming-that day known to You alone. And we expect to obtain everything promised us by Jesus in spite of all our wretchedness. For Jesus   is our Hope: Through His merciful Heart, as through an open gate, we pass through to heaven. (St. Faustina’s Diary 1570)

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
