Pray to the Holy Spirit…
February 13, 2024
Dear Family of Mary!
In her last message Our Lady told us:
“Dear Children! May this time be a time of prayer.” (January 25, 2024)
I am so glad she spoke these words to us on that day. As we have been trying to live these words, it seems that our prayer has changed! Our prayer is growing in so many ways. But I think one of the most powerful ways it is changing is that we are now calling on the Holy Spirit much more often. I am so happy that we are calling on the Holy Spirit in our personal prayer times! This is so powerful!
Let’s keep this practice of calling on the dear Holy Spirit whenever we enter into prayer, and even when we are working or studying or in a conversation!
In this message for today, Our Lady advises us to “Pray to the Holy Spirit…” for specific help in our lives today:
April 25, 2015
I am with you also today
to lead you to salvation.
Your soul is restless
because your spirit is weak and tired
from all worldly things.
You, little children,
pray to the Holy Spirit
that He may transform you and fill you
with His strength of faith and hope,
so that you may be firm
in this battle against evil.
I am with you
and intercede for you before my Son Jesus.
Thank you for having responded to my call…”
Our Lady tells us to pray to the Holy Spirit so that He may transform us and fill us with His strength of faith and hope!! Truly this is the job of the Holy Spirit. He transformed the Apostles in just this way. They were huddled in the Upper Room after Jesus’ death on the Cross. They were terrified that the same end awaited them. They didn’t know what to do! Until Pentecost happened!! The Holy Spirit fell upon them and they were set on fire with zeal for the Gospel. They were changed forever. They won the battle against evil in their day, through their incredible witness of Jesus.
We are entering Lent tomorrow, and we might see this as our time in the Upper Room, waiting for the Holy Spirit to fall upon us, to make us true apostles of the Good News of Jesus! Let’s pray to become transformed and filled with the Holy Spirit’s strength of faith and hope this Lent.
In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!
