A time of waiting and giving…
December 18, 2023
Dear Family of Mary!
Here is our message for today:
November 25, 2018
This is a time of grace and prayer,
a time of waiting and giving.
God is giving Himself to you
that we may love Him above everything.
Therefore, little children,
open your hearts and families,
so that this waiting
may become prayer and love
and, especially, giving.
I am with you, little children,
and encourage you not to give up
from what is good,
because the fruits are seen and heard of afar.
That is why the enemy is angry
and uses everything to lead you away from prayer.
Thank you for having responded to my call.”
This time of waiting is a true gift for us! When we have to wait, it gives us time to really ponder the gift that is coming, and to prepare our hearts for it so that we will be able to truly comprehend it in all its outrageous glory!
The Father sends us His Son, who has taken on our lowly humanity in order to really become our brother, our friend, our companion, our guide, and our Savior. Jesus is a man, just as we are! Man and God! Incredible!!
It is beyond the wildest dream of any dreamer, that Jesus, who is God, would become one of us.
But He is one of us! For all eternity!
And so Our Lady tells us to love Him above everything, open our hearts to Him so that this time will become a time of prayer and love and giving. She also tells us not to give up doing the good, as it will bear great fruit if we do!
May we spend this week before Christmas doing exactly as She says! We must not let anything stop us!
In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!
