And it was night…
Dear Family of Mary!
In the readings for Mass today, we hear how Judas, steeped in his avarice and pride, accepted the morsel from Jesus, and went off to betray Him. Jesus, though so sad at the loss of Judas, realized that this was the moment when He would be glorified. Glorified in His Crucifixion and Death on the Cross in order to save us. Only the powerful love of Jesus could have accepted to die in this way for us, lowly and sinful as we are.
From the Gospel of John at Mass today:
So Judas took the morsel and left at once. And it was night.
When he had left, Jesus said, “Now is the Son of Man glorified, and God is glorified in him. If God is glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself, and he will glorify him at once. My children, I will be with you only a little while longer.” (John 13:31-33)
In this message Our Lady prays for those who betray her Son:
September 2, 2014
I, your mother, am coming anew among you
out of love which has no end,
from endless love of the endless Heavenly Father.
And as I am looking into your hearts
I see that many of you accept me as a mother
and, with sincere and pure hearts,
you desire to be my apostles.
But, I am also the mother of those of you
who do not accept me
and who, in the hardness of your hearts,
do not desire to come to know the love of my Son.
And you do not know how much my heart suffers
and how much I pray to my Son for you.
I pray to Him to heal your souls
because He can do so.
I pray to Him to illuminate you
with the miracle of the Holy Spirit
so that you may stop,
and wounding Him.
With all my heart I pray for you to understand
that only my Son is the salvation
and the light of the world.
And you, my children,
my dear apostles,
always carry my Son in your hearts and thoughts.
In this way you are carrying love.
All those who do not know Him will recognize Him in your love.
I am always beside you.
In a special way I am beside your shepherds
because my Son has called them to lead you
on the way to eternity.
Thank you, my apostles, for your sacrifice and love.”
In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!
