Make Holy Mass your life!
February 18, 2020
Dear Family of Mary!
The Second Stone that Our Lady offers us is Holy Mass! She asked the visionaries to attend Holy Mass daily, as well as the prayer group. Here is a message she gave through Jelena for the prayer group in 1984:
Friday, March 30, 1984
“My children, I wish that the holy Mass be for you the gift of the day. Attend it, wish for it to begin. Jesus gives Himself to you during the Mass. Thus, look forward to that moment when you are cleansed. Pray very much so that the Holy Spirit will renew your parish. If people attend Mass with luke-warmness, they will return to their homes cold, and with an empty heart.”
We can see how important Mass is for Our Lady. As she knows only too well, Jesus gives Himself to us during the Mass. What else need be said?
Fr. Leon spoke about the Holy Mass as the second stone in his talk in North Carolina:
The second Stone is Holy Mass. Our Lady said we must go to Holy Mass as often as possible and receive Communion in a state of grace. Go early. Prepare with silence before Mass. Never leave Mass without making your thanksgiving. She also said to the villagers that to those who habitually come late, it would be better for them not to come.
So, the Mass is obviously very important. Now do not think of the Mass as if it is boring or tedious. For example, if I said to you, you know my mother’s birthday, I’m tired of celebrating my Mother’s birthday, because you know she gets all her bingo pals, and they come around and they all make cake. And then they feed me cake. And in the usual perverse Indian way, they all say, “Oh, you are so fat now!!” And I’m tired of this abuse. (This story, by the way is fake, she doesn’t play bingo. But her friends do feed me cake and they do tell me I’m fat.)
So, if I said, alright, I have had enough of this abuse and I’m not going to celebrate my Mother’s birthday anymore, would that be ok? No!! The reason for that is that my Mother’s birthday is about her, not about me. Mass is not about what we get out of it. Mass is about what we have come to give Jesus. So, don’t ever think, oh I get nothing out of Mass. I’m bored. No. Who said it had anything to do with you? It’s got to do with what you have come to give Jesus.
What have you come to bring Jesus? What about the offertory? Because He wants your whole self, body and soul, put on the paten as the priest lifts it up. That is what He wants. So, remember the Mass is a celebration that takes place in heaven. It’s not about us down here. We are all caught up in the Heavenly worship.
Father says it like it is! But I know he is leaving out unsaid. We DO get something out of Mass. Something incredible!! “Jesus gives Himself to you during the Mass!” The Mass is all about Jesus giving Himself entirely to us. And we cannot live without Him. He is our life!!
Below are five messages in which Our Lady speaks about Holy Mass. As we pray our Rosaries today, let’s ponder these messages, and grow more and more in love with Holy Mass!
Sometime in October 1984
“I would like to guide you spiritually, but I would not know how to help you, if you are not open. It suffices for you to think, for example, where you were with your thoughts yesterday during Mass. When you go to Mass, your trip from home to church should be a time of preparation for Mass. You should also receive Holy Communion with an open and pure heart; purity of heart and openness. Do not leave the church without an appropriate act of thanksgiving. I can help you only if you are accessible to my suggestions; I cannot help you if you are not open. The most important in spiritual life is to ask for the gift of the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit comes, then peace will be established. When that occurs, everything changes around you. Things will change.”
April 3, 1986 “Dear children! I wish to call you to a living of the Holy Mass. There are many of you who have sensed the beauty of the Holy Mass, but there are also those who come unwillingly. I have chosen you, dear children, but Jesus gives you His graces in the Mass. Therefore, consciously live the Holy Mass and let your coming to it be a joyful one. Come to it with love and make the Mass your own. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
April 25, 1988 “Dear children! God wants to make you holy. Therefore, through me He is inviting you to complete surrender. Let Holy Mass be your life. Understand that the church is God’s palace, the place in which I gather you and want to show you the way to God. Come and pray. Neither look at others nor slander them, but rather, let your life be a testimony on the way of holiness. Churches deserve respect and are set apart as holy because God, who became man, dwells in them day and night. Therefore, little children, believe and pray that the Father increase your faith, and then ask for whatever you need. I am with you and I am rejoicing because of your conversion and I am protecting you with my motherly mantle. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
January 25, 1998 “Dear children! Today again I call all of you to prayer. Only with prayer, dear children, will your heart change, become better, and be more sensitive to the Word of God. Little children, do not permit satan to pull you apart and to do with you what he wants. I call you to be responsible and determined and to consecrate each day to God in prayer. May Holy Mass, little children, not be a habit for you, but life. By living Holy Mass each day, you will feel the need for holiness, and you will grow in holiness. I am close to you and intercede before God for each of you, so that He may give you strength to change your heart. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
August 2, 2008 “Dear children; In my coming to you, here among you, the greatness of God is reflected and the way with God to eternal happiness is opened. Do not feel weak, alone or abandoned. With faith, prayer and love climb to the hill of salvation. May the Mass, the most exalted and most powerful act of your prayer, be the center of your spiritual life. Trust and love, my children. Those whom my Son chose and called will help you in this as well. To you and to them especially, I give my motherly blessing. Thank you.”
Thank you, dearest Mother, for the five stones. You have given us a road map for our lives in these stones. May we follow you with joy and trust, into the depths of the spiritual life!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
