Dear Family of Mary!
“Dear children! Today I am calling you to pray even more, until you feel the holiness of forgiveness in your heart. There must be holiness in the families, little children, because there is no future for the world without love and holiness – because in holiness and joy, you give yourselves to God the Creator who loves you with immeasurable love. This is why He sends me to you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (January 25, 2020)
“…Today I am calling you to pray even more…”
There is one request that Our Lady constantly makes of us. And she only increases the urgency with which she makes this request to us. She just keeps the pedal to the metal, so to speak. And that request is for more and more prayer. She does not let up on this request!! She wants our prayer to continue to increase and grow in depth and constancy.
She has told us that without prayer we cannot live. Here are some of her words about our fundamental need for prayer:
Monday, September 10, 1984 To Jelena:
“Dear children, you must understand that one has to pray. Prayer is no joke; prayer is a conversation with God. In every prayer you must listen to the voice of God. Without prayer one cannot live. Prayer is life.”
“It is up to you to pray and to persevere. I have made promises to you; also be without anxiety. Faith will not know how to be alive without prayer… Pray more.”
“Pray and fast, because without prayer you cannot do anything.”
Well, I guess you get the point. If we do one thing in 2020, change one pattern in our lives this year, it should be to pray more. Because prayer is life!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
