Be children!

Dear Family of Mary!

“…My children, be joyful in your soul, be pure, be children…” (January 2, 2018)

Be children! This mysterious request of Our Lady has echoed in my heart ever since I first read the January 2, 2018 message. It seems that being joyful in our souls, and being pure are necessary conditions to being children. All three requests are intriguing.

We all would love to be joyful in our souls! How can that be achieved? My soul seems to be most joyful just after I have received absolution in Confession. The grace of forgiveness floods my soul with a sense of wellbeing which can only be described as having a joyful soul! A joyful soul is a soul that is reconciled with God, and completely in His hands. And it is most completely in God’s hands right after Confession, at least for me!

How we would also love to be pure! Again, purity is most intensely felt after Confession, and then when we win the fight against temptation, an ongoing battle indeed. To be pure we must choose God alone, over and over again! And live in His presence continually, so that sin will have no allure.

But to be children! I found this message from 2013 that seems to center around this idea of being a child of God. Read it and see what you think:

December 02, 2013 “Dear children, with a motherly love and a motherly patience I am looking at your ceaseless wandering and how lost you are. That is why I am with you. I desire to help you to first find and come to know yourself, so that, then, you would be able to recognize and to admit everything that does not permit you to get to know the love of the Heavenly Father, honestly and wholeheartedly. My children, the Father comes to be known through the cross. Therefore, do not reject the cross. Strive to comprehend and accept it with my help. When you will be able to accept the cross you will also understand the love of the Heavenly Father; you will walk with my Son and with me; you will differ from those who have not come to know the love of the Heavenly Father, those who listen to Him but do not understand Him, those who do not walk with Him – who have not come to know Him. I desire for you to come to know the truth of my Son and to be my apostles; that, as children of God, you may rise above the human way of thinking and always, and in everything, seek God’s way of thinking, anew. My children, pray and fast that you may be able to recognize all of this which I am seeking of you. Pray for your shepherds and long to come to know the love of your Heavenly Father, in union with them. Thank you.”

Our Lady asks these things of us:

Come to know yourself and the things that keep you from knowing the love of the Heavenly Father honestly and wholeheartedly.

Accept the crosses in your life, with Our Lady’s help, so you can begin to understand the love of the Heavenly Father.

Walk with Jesus and Mary, as children of the Heavenly Father in one family of love.

Get to know the truth of Jesus, so that as children of God you can adopt God’s way of thinking.

Pray and fast to understand what Our Lady is saying to you!

To be children, it seems, we need a Father! And not just any father, but the Heavenly Father, the Father of Jesus, the Father who created us and loves us without end. And to know this Father we must have a deep knowledge of ourselves, our sins, our weaknesses and our needs. We must also know and accept our crosses which somehow are the keys to understanding the Father’s love. We need to walk with Jesus, through our lives, so that He can show us the Father! And we must learn from Jesus to think like the Father. Then and only then will we be joyful, pure children!! Then and only then our souls will be filled with joy!

I think it might be good to reread the message a few times and slowly meditate on the things Our Lady tells us. They are words of life, and will help us if we do! It is not a matter of words, but of prayer. God alone can teach us much of what Our Lady says in this message, personally, individually, and gently!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
