Day of Prayer for the Protection of the Unborn.

Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children, on this day of grace, I am calling you to love. Little children, God loves you immeasurably and that is why, little children, full of trust and without looking back and without fear, completely surrender your hearts to Him so that God may fill them with His love. Do not be afraid to believe in His love and mercy, because His love is stronger than every one of your weaknesses and fears. Therefore, my children, full of love in your hearts, trust in Jesus and say your ‘yes’ to Him, because He is the only way which leads you to the Eternal Father.” (December 25, 2019 Jakov)

I love this message! I just love it! Jakov only receives one public message each year. And it can get lost in the shuffle with all the Christmas business! But Our Lady has an especially tender way of speaking through Jakov. This message is a very good demonstration of her tenderness.

“Dear children, on this day of grace, I am calling you to love…” So simply, Our Lady gives us this call, the call to love. Do we think about this call every day as we get up in the morning? “I am called this day to love…” How would it change our day if we made this call a priority in our day? How would it change the way we organize our time? It’s a thought…

“Little children, God loves you immeasurably and that is why, little children, full of trust and without looking back and without fear, completely surrender your hearts to Him so that God may fill them with His love…” Every time I read this sentence, it takes my breath away. God loves us immeasurably…God loves us so much we can never measure it. Such love should fill us with trust! And such love should move us to only look forward. No looking back at what has happened. No more self-recrimination or shame. No more fear that we will fail again. God’s love is so vast, it will carry us through everything. We have nothing to fear. We need only to surrender to this vast love, and let God fill us with His grace.

“Do not be afraid to believe in His love and mercy, because His love is stronger than every one of your weaknesses and fears…” Do not be afraid! Yes, we are weak. Yes, we are unsure. Yes, we have failed many times. But that doesn’t stop God from choosing us and loving us. God can overcome every weakness and fear in our hearts, if we let Him.

“Therefore, my children, full of love in your hearts, trust in Jesus and say your ‘yes’ to Him, because He is the only way which leads you to the Eternal Father.” Therefore…Our Lady has given us the truth about the Father. He is always love. And she has given us Jesus, as our brother, to lead us to that Father who loves us. All Jesus needs is our ‘yes’. It seems too good to be true. But it is. Jesus is the only way to the Eternal Father, and Jesus is given to us by the Father to ensure that we get back to Him.

Doesn’t it make you want to swoon? So much love. So much tenderness. So much compassion and kindness. We are called to love because we are so loved!

Thank you, dearest Mother, for this message which touches our deepest selves, where fear and failure and mistrust hide. You are reaching down there to root them out. You want us to finally completely surrender to your Son, so that He can save us. May we say “yes”.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PS. Here is a prayer we can pray for the unborn on this day of prayer, along with our Rosaries.

O Mary, Mother of the Unborn,
protect the gift of human life which your
Divine Son has allowed to be given.

Give strength and joy to all parents as
they await the birth of the precious
child they have conceived.

Give courage to those who are fearful,
calm those who are anxious and guide
all of us, with your motherly care, to
treasure and protect the miraculous gift
of human life.

We ask this through your Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Dear Family of Mary!

I was ill this weekend, and so was Denis. We were not able to do our Daily Rosary or Divine Mercy on Saturday or Sunday. It was so strange! We have been praying online for 10 years now, every day!! I truly love it! We shipmates are family now!!

I wanted to share a beautiful email I received about a week ago. It is from Cecilia in Upstate New York! She shares an experience she had through Medjugorje coming to her on Mary TV!

Dear Cathy,

I would like to share an experience that happened to me last night. Thank you for your daily reflections, I always look forward to them every day! You transcribed Father Marinko’ s homily (January 14, 2019 Reflection), what a beautiful homily he gave on Sunday (January 13, 2019 – Evening International Mass). I had to read it again last night around 10 pm before I went to bed.

I decided to watch it on Mary TV, so I went to the archives. Then, I opened your reflection with Mother Teresa’s prayers (January 15, 2019 reflection). As I was praying, I felt a tremendous love, physical love flood into my heart!!! What a joy it was!!! My heart was pounding, craving that love! Father Marinko’s words and your reflection and Mother Teresa’s prayers opened my heart!! Now, I know what Our Lady is talking about when she says, “Little Children, open your heart!” Sometimes we don’t know how to do it.

Dear Cathy… I am with you every day in the ship sailing with the Rosary program. Sending my love from Upstate New York,
Cecilia

Thank you, Cecilia, for sharing your experience of grace with us all. The Holy Spirit was moving!! It always amazes me how strong the graces are from Medjugorje. The Fruit of Medjugorje Shows constantly amaze me! So many interior graces happen in Medjugorje, not to mention the healings and conversion! We are so blessed to have Our Lady with us.

This message from August of 2018 encourages us to pray for open hearts:

August 02, 2018 “Dear children, with a motherly love I am calling you to open hearts to peace; to open hearts to my Son, so that in your hearts love for my Son may sing, because only out of that love peace comes in the soul. My children, I know that you have goodness, I know that you have love – a merciful love, but many of my children still have a closed heart. They think that they can do it without directing their thoughts towards the Heavenly Father who illuminates-towards my Son who is always with you anew in the Eucharist and who desires to listen to you. My children, why do you not speak to Him? The life of each of you is important and precious, because it is a gift from the Heavenly Father for eternity. Therefore, do not ever forget to keep on thanking Him: speak to Him. I know, my children, that what is to come afterwards is unknown to you, but when your hereafter comes you will receive all the answers. My motherly love desires that you be ready. My children, by your life keep putting good feelings in the hearts of the people whom you meet, feelings of peace, goodness, love and forgiveness. Through prayer, hearken to what My Son is saying and act accordingly. Anew, I am calling you to prayer for your shepherds, for those whom my Son has called. Remember that they need prayers and love. Thank you.”

I think your heart, Cecilia, was singing!!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Dear Family of Mary!

“…My children, apostles of my love, I am teaching you that my Son is not only asking for continuous prayers, but also for works and feelings – that you believe, that you pray, that with your personal prayers you grow in faith, that you grow in love. To love each other is what He asks for – that is the way to eternal life. My children, do not forget that my Son brought the light to this world, and He brought it to those who wanted to see it and receive it. You be those, because this is the light of truth, peace and love…” (January 2, 2019)

Jesus asks us for things. He sees us, knows us, and asks us for things. Our Lady said he asks for continuous prayer, for works and feeling [of love], for our belief in Him, prayer to Him, and that we grow in faith and love. Jesus calls us to change and grow, according to Our Lady.

Reuben sent this lovely response to Our Lady’s message which shows how very right Our Lady is!! Reuben wrote:

From reading the Gospels,
I see the eyes of Jesus.

They follow me.

They are so powerful, serene and penetrating.
I understand that they see souls entirely:
both as they are in their woundedness,
and as they could be when transformed in His love.

It is this look which converts the apostles so immediately.

Christ sees, in someone like Matthew,
both the traitor of His people as tax collector,
and their eventual evangelist by way of repentance.

He sees in Peter the man who dies upside down
and the man who runs away at the dawn of his master’s passion.

Christ’s look invites a decision.
His clarity of sight is perfect,
but so is His desire for only and completely the good.

I must look this way at people too.
I must consider myself the greater sinner,
and they – all of them – the more capable of sanctity.

I must invite the grace to see
what that person in front of me would look like
were they fully alive in the love of God.

That is light!

Amen! Thank you, Reuben and may we all see in the Light of Jesus, with eyes of love and of truth so as to invite our brothers and sisters into the Kingdom.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

My Son brought the light to this world!

St. Anthony, Abbot

Dear Family of Mary!

“…My children, do not forget that my Son brought the light to this world, and He brought it to those who wanted to see it and receive it. You be those, because this is the light of truth, peace and love…” (January 2, 2019)

I want to step aside and let two of our shipmates share their thoughts on Jesus as the light of this world, Ginna from Ohio will share today, and Reuben from Wales will share tomorrow! They each see another facet to Our Lady’s message. I suspect there are as many facets to her words as there are shipmates!! That is the incredible fertility of Our Lady’s words. Enjoy!!

Ginna wrote:

Dear Cathy,

As I was praying about the message and this terrible warfare that makes Our Lady so sad, and all the divisions around us I remembered that the name Lucifer is “light bearer”. He’s trying to be our light and deceive us. …And so, at the end of the message she is calling us to remember that it is Christ who is the true light as opposed to the enemy’s desire to be the light for us. So again, she is calling us to decide for God and decisively against Lucifer who manifests himself at times as an angel of light. We must pray to discern and receive only Him, especially as the angels of light appear within our very Church and in our relationships.

“My children do not forget that my Son brought the light to this world, and He brought it to those who wanted to see it and receive it. You be those, because this is the light of truth, peace and love.” He is the Light- not Lucifer!! We are in battle with the true light against the false light. She’s asking us to discern and follow Him!

Also, what strikes me in this message is the passive nouns. “Faith is being extinguished. Hearts are being grasped.” We aren’t resisting. We aren’t active. We’re giving in at times. We need to pray to the Holy Spirit to stir into flames that faith that is being extinguished on earth and to actively guard our hearts and place them in hers where she would let nothing grasp the heart of any of her children who come to her in faith. We fly to thy patronage, o holy Mother if God. “When the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?” Yes, if we listen to and live her messages and give her our hearts.

I love praying about her messages!!

Thank you, Ginna. Well said!! We do need to discern between the false light of Lucifer and the Light of the World, Jesus! And we need to fight for our faith! Only with Our Lady as our leader will we be able to succeed! She is with us to guide us in this difficult time, but a time of grace, nonetheless!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Dear Family of Mary!

“…My children, do not forget that my Son brought the light to this world, and He brought it to those who wanted to see it and receive it. You be those, because this is the light of truth, peace and love…” (January 2, 2019)

Our Lady tells us that Jesus brought the light to this world. She saw Jesus shine light into the lives of so many people during His public ministry. It was a light so bright that nothing could be hidden in it. Here is one example of Jesus’ light, from John 8:

Early in the morning he came again to the temple; all the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them. The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst they said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. Now in the law Moses commanded us to stone such. What do you say about her?”

This they said to test him, that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” And once more he bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground.

But when they heard it, they went away, one by one, beginning with the eldest, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. Jesus looked up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and do not sin again.”

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8: 2012)

Jesus taught the people in the temple. His teaching was powerful. It spoke truth in a way that they had never heard before. It was a powerful light that could shine into their lives, showing them all that they needed to know to find peace, to find God. Jesus spoke light to the people.

But the scribes and Pharisees were not listening to Jesus. Their hearts were closed, so the light of His words could not shine in them. They brought a woman to test Him. Would He condemn her and order her to be stoned? Would He stand up for the law?

Little did they know that their trick would be the way for Jesus to shine His light into their hearts. They had set a trap, but Jesus turned the tables on them. “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” Jesus spoke to each of their hearts, shining His light on their lives. Now they were trapped. If they threw a stone, they would be saying that they were perfect, without sin. How could they profess such a thing? Jesus had leveled the playing field. Light was shining into all hearts present there. The only thing to do was quietly leave. Would they be changed by the light Jesus had extended to them? We don’t know.

But the woman received light as well. Jesus had delivered her from condemnation. She was free to go. But Jesus’ light also shown in her heart. “Go and do not sin again.” She was known by Jesus, and loved, but also counseled to live in the light! Would she be changed? No doubt she was!

And so after this confrontation, Jesus proclaimed: “I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” All who were present that day experienced the Light of the World! They left His presence, confronted and hopefully changed.

Now Our Lady is telling us the same. “…My children, do not forget that my Son brought the light to this world, and He brought it to those who wanted to see it and receive it. You be those, because this is the light of truth, peace and love…” You be those…You be the people who want to see the light and who receive it. You be like the woman who was saved from stoning. Let the light of Christ convert you, change you, heal you, and comfort you. Let that light shine in your inner being, where you will be healed and delivered of all sin.

Mother, we want to be those who want to see the light of Jesus and to receive it. Help us, pray with us, teach us how to receive the Light of Christ!

In Jesus, mary and Joseph!

Yesterday we heard about Mother Teresa from Fr. Marinko. He shared how Mother Teresa lived totally for love of Jesus, just as Our Lady teaches us in this message. Today I offer to you two prayers of Mother Teresa’s, both of which will help us to love Jesus more and more. This is such a joyful task. May we love Jesus more and more and more and more!!!!

Mother Teresa’s Daily Prayer to Jesus

Dear Jesus, help me to spread Thy fragrance everywhere I go. Flood my soul with Thy spirit and love. Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that all my life may only be a radiance of Thine. Shine through me and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel Thy presence in my soul. Let them look up and see no longer me but only Jesus. Stay with me and then I shall begin to shine as you shine, so to shine as to be a light to others. Amen.

Mother Teresa’s Prayer of Jesus

Love my Son with me!
(c) Anthonly Zubac 2018

 

January 14, 2019
First Week of Ordinary Time

Dear Family of Mary!

“I am leading you in a motherly way to adore my Son; that you love my Son with me; that your thoughts, words and actions may be directed to My Son – that they may be in His name. Then my heart will be fulfilled. Thank you.” (January 2, 2019)

I can’t help it, I want to share the homily given by Fr. Marinko on Sunday, January 13, 2019!:

Dear Brothers and Sisters! Today on the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord Jesus Christ, we are called to meditate, reflecting on our own Baptism, reflecting on ourselves, our being. Christians are those who follow Christ, who follow Him, who walk in His footsteps. And what does Jesus do?

We heard that Jesus was waiting in the crowd. Then when His turn came, He walked into the waters of the Jordan River. He was one among others who were walking into the waters of the River Jordan. You see His degree of solidarity with humanity, that He became one of us, resembling us in everything, everything except sin.

Our Baptism is the beginning. To be Christian it means to resemble, even more, Christ every day! As He became like us in everything, therefore, we are following Him, trying to resemble Him, and that is the essence of why we pray, why we come to Mass, why we read the Word of God, why we get to know Christ and resemble Him even more.

An example of such a person who is our contemporary is St. Mother Teresa. Here are some examples from her life that show us what it means concretely. Mother Teresa once said when she was asked: “I was born in Albania, by birth I am Albanian, by citizenship, Indian, by what I do, I belong to all the people of the world, and my heart belongs to Christ.” That is her personal identity card! It describes who she is.

Brothers and Sisters, I think it might be even some priest who said that this theology of Mother Teresa is two hundred years late. And she said, “What 200, it should be 2000. I am 2000 years behind Christ.!” This is what she tried to be, coming closer to Christ, trying to be like Him. But we are always behind Him. And she thought that we recognize Jesus in two ways, in the Eucharistic Bread, and in the suffering, poor man, our fellow brother.

When they asked her, what was the secret of her success, she said, “I receive Jesus every day in the Holy Eucharist.” That was the life of Mother Teresa. “I receive Jesus every day, to give Jesus. Everything is so simple. I receive Jesus, I am nourished by Jesus, so I can give Him to others. All that I do I do for Jesus. I don’t do it for people. I do all I do for Jesus.”

The Indian Minister for Social Affairs at that time understood and said “We too are helping people, we also do a lot of good. But we do it for some reason. But you, Mother Teresa, you do it for someone!” And that, Brothers and Sisters, is what Mother Teresa did. She knew that by helping others she was helping Jesus and all that she does for people she does for Jesus.

And she used to say in five fingers, “You did this to Me.” This is the essence of the Gospel. “You did this to me.” And she took this as the motto of her life and for her congregation, “I thirst.” That means I recognize Jesus in the man who thirsts, who is hungry, who is in need, who is poor, who is suffering.

And when people would come to visit her, Mother Teresa would invite them to come and visit the sick, and she would tell them, “Come and meet Jesus.” In that we can see what it means concretely to be Christian, because Mother Teresa has lived in our time, she is our contemporary. She understood what it means to be Christian today.

That is what we hear in the Mass, through Christ, in Christ, and with Christ. That means to allow Jesus to work through me. When they asked her why, when she had so many projects, she was not worried? She said, “I am not doing that. It is Jesus who is doing all that, through me.” She considered herself a pen. God wants to write a love letter to a man, and I am His pen. I serve that purpose. You see how Mother Teresa understood herself and the meaning of her life? That is, Brothers and Sisters, very interesting, and that is where the mystery is hidden. All I do, I do for Jesus, and I allow Jesus through me to do everything.

Dear Brothers and Sisters, today I just gave one example of Mother Teresa, to remind us of what is possible. If we are resembling Jesus, coming closer to Him even more, people may say that is too hard. It is impossible to achieve such holiness in the circumstances of the world in which we live. But, Brothers and Sisters, what is it that Blessed Mother says to us? “If you have love, everything is possible, if there is no love, nothing is possible.”

That, Brothers and Sisters, is the key, that is where the mystery is, what the answer to the question is. Therefore, it is important to come to know the love of God. The Blessed Mother repeats Jesus’ calling to us to love God. What does this mean? Some people say it is important to love people. No, the most important thing is to love God first!

Mother Teresa asked that at noon they would have Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. But, there are poor, there are people in need…No, no it won’t go that way. First Jesus! Come to know that love. So that later we won’t come to say that it is “I” who am doing something. But to come to know the love of Jesus, to be active, to be doing something not for others but for Him, for Jesus. If the love of God, the love of Jesus grows in us, then the love for others will grow also.

When there were two persons in trouble, with problems, a conflict situation, a priest gave this advice. “Love God!” It sounded strange, but he was telling them to pray so that the love of God might be awoken within them. If the love of God is awoken, then it is impossible not to be renewed and to renew your relationship with all persons. I receive His love and then I am formed in His love, and I know in a concrete way what to do.

Brothers and Sisters may today’s Baptism of Jesus Christ inspire us to a greater determination to meditate on our Christian identity, to become those who follow Christ. Amen.

Dear Family of Mary!

“But my motherly heart knows that there are still those who believe and love, who are seeking how to draw all the closer to my Son, who are tirelessly seeking my Son – then, in this way, they are also seeking me. These are the humble and the meek with their pain and suffering which they carry in silence with their hopes and, above all, with their faith. These are the apostles of my love.” (January2, 2019)

Isa.55: 1-13

“Ho, every one who thirsts, come to the waters;
and he who has no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without price.

Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread,
and your labor for that which does not satisfy?
Hearken diligently to me, and eat what is good,
and delight yourselves in fatness.

Incline your ear, and come to me;
hear, that your soul may live;
and I will make with you an everlasting covenant,
my steadfast, sure love for David.
Behold, I made him a witness to the peoples,
a leader and commander for the peoples.

Behold, you shall call nations that you know not,
and nations that knew you not shall run to you,
because of the LORD your God, and of the Holy One of Israel,
for he has glorified you.

“Seek the LORD while he may be found,
call upon him while he is near;
let the wicked forsake his way,
and the unrighteous man his thoughts;
let him return to the LORD, that he may have mercy on him,
and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, says the LORD.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.

“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
and return not thither but water the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
so shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

“For you shall go out in joy,
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and the hills before you
shall break forth into singing,
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress;
instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle;
and it shall be to the LORD for a memorial,
for an everlasting sign which shall not be cut off.”
(Is. 55)

“But my motherly heart knows that there are still those who believe and love, who are seeking how to draw all the closer to my Son, who are tirelessly seeking my Son – then, in this way, they are also seeking me. These are the humble and the meek with their pain and suffering which they carry in silence with their hopes and, above all, with their faith. These are the apostles of my love.” (January2, 2019)

Dear Family of Mary!

Our Lady said to us on January 2:

“Dear children! Sadly, among you, my children, there is so much battle, hatred, personal interests and selfishness. My children, so easily you forget my Son, His words, His love. Faith is being extinguished in many souls, and hearts are being grasped by material things of the world…

Psalm 51: 1-12

Have mercy on me, O God,
according to thy steadfast love;
according to thy abundant mercy blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
and cleanse me from my sin!
For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is ever before me.
Against thee, thee only, have I sinned,
and done that which is evil in thy sight,
so that thou art justified in thy sentence
and blameless in thy judgment.
Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward being;
therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart.
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Fill me with joy and gladness;
let the bones which thou hast broken rejoice.
Hide thy face from my sins,
and blot out all my iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and put a new and right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from thy presence,
and take not thy holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of thy salvation,
and uphold me with a willing spirit.

Amen

Dear Family of Mary!

I would like to slowly take in the January 2, 2019 message with you all, and so let’s first prayerfully review it today. It begins rather sadly, but ends with great hope.

Here is the January 2, 2019 message (through Mirjana Soldo):

Dear children! Sadly, among you, my children, there is so much battle, hatred, personal interests and selfishness. My children, so easily you forget my Son, His words, His love. Faith is being extinguished in many souls, and hearts are being grasped by material things of the world.

But my motherly heart knows that there are still those who believe and love, who are seeking how to draw all the closer to my Son, who are tirelessly seeking my Son – then, in this way, they are also seeking me. These are the humble and the meek with their pain and suffering which they carry in silence with their hopes and, above all, with their faith. These are the apostles of my love.

My children, apostles of my love, I am teaching you that my Son is not only asking for continuous prayers, but also for works and feelings – that you believe, that you pray, that with your personal prayers you grow in faith, that you grow in love. To love each other is what He asks for – that is the way to eternal life. My children, do not forget that my Son brought the light to this world, and He brought it to those who wanted to see it and receive it. You be those, because this is the light of truth, peace and love.

I am leading you in a motherly way to adore my Son; that you love my Son with me; that your thoughts, words and actions may be directed to My Son – that they may be in His name. Then my heart will be fulfilled. Thank you.

Thank you dearest Mother, for your messages. We feel like children who have been fed carefully and wisely by the best of mothers. Your words are always true. We can trust you. The Holy Spirit comes through your words to us, because He is inspiring you. You are the Handmaid of the Lord, and our mother. We will listen to your words with open hearts and willing spirits. Thank you for coming to be with us in Medjugorje! We have been blessed and changed by your presence and we will listen to your words in our hearts. Amen.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
