Like sheep without a shepherd…
July 11, 2023
Dear Family of Mary!
“Jesus went around to all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom, and curing every disease and illness. At the sight of the crowds, his heart was moved with pity for them because they were troubled and abandoned, like sheep without a shepherd…” Mt 9:34-37
Jesus’s heart was moved by the plight of the people. He wanted to help them all. He wanted them all to know His love, the Father’s love. Jesus’ compassion consumed Him. He finally gave His all for us on the Cross, offering Himself as a ransom for all of us. We can only love Him as best we can!
Our Lady has a similar love for us and is with us to draw us to Jesus, one by one, through her presence. She said to us:

This time also I am inviting you to prayer.
Pray that you might be able to comprehend
what God desires to tell you
through my presence
and through the messages I am giving you.
I desire to draw you ever closer to Jesus
and to His wounded heart
that you might be able to comprehend
the immeasurable love
which gave itself for each one of you.
Therefore, dear children,
pray that from your heart
would flow a fountain of love
to every person –
both to the one who hates you
and to the one who despises you.
That way you will be able
through Jesus’ love
to overcome all the misery
in this world of sorrows,
which is without hope
for those who do not know Jesus.
I am with you
and I love you
with the immeasurable love of Jesus.
Thank you for all your sacrifices and prayers.
Pray so I might be able to help you still more.
Your prayers are necessary to me.
Thank you for having responded to my call.”
Mother loves us with the love of Jesus. Her compassion comes from His. Her desire for our blessing and healing comes from His desire. Their hearts are one. Jesus sent her to us in these days to prepare us for heaven, to heal us with her love and teach us holiness, so we will be able to join Him in Heaven. She is our Mediatrix in these days. Our job is to listen to her and learn from her the way. Then in turn we must help our brothers and sisters.
May we pray “to comprehend the immeasurable love which gave itself for each one of [us].”
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
