Give me your open, purified hearts…
July 18, 2023
Dear Family of Mary!
Our Lady has asked us several times in her messages to give her our hearts. She desires the gift of our hearts. But what does this mean? How do you give someone your heart?
When I ponder my heart, it seems that all my secrets, all my loves, all my hopes and dreams are somehow found in my heart. My heart is ground zero for my person. It is where I truly am found. My heart is very private, almost locked away. And yet, the doors fly open when I encounter a baby or a small child, and I see their vulnerability, their honesty and their purity. My heart opens to them automatically.
My heart is me. And my heart longs for communion with others. That is what we are made for by God. That is why my heart opens so freely with little ones. They do not frighten me away! But we are meant for so much more. We are meant for the holy and eternal communion with God and all those in heaven. This is my heart’s desire, for sure.
And so when Our Lady asks us to give her our hearts, it is a big request. She knows it is a big request too. But she also knows that if we give her our hearts, she will heal them and make them ready for that eternal communion with God we so long for.
So what are we waiting for? Let’s give her our hearts, open and ready to be filled with God’s love.
She told us:
October 2, 2013
I love you with a motherly love
and with a motherly patience
I wait for your love and unity.
I pray that you may be a community
of God’s children,
of my children.
I pray that as a community
you may joyfully come back
to life in the faith
and in the love of my Son.
I am gathering you as my apostles
and am teaching you how to bring others
to come to know the love of my Son;
how to bring to them the Good News,
which is my Son.
Give me your open, purified hearts
and I will fill them with the love for my Son.
His love will give meaning to your life
and I will walk with you.
I will be with you
until the meeting with the Heavenly Father.
it is those who walk towards the Heavenly Father
with love and faith
who will be saved.
Do not be afraid.
I am with you.
Put your trust in your shepherds
as my Son trusted when He chose them,
and pray that they may have
the strength and the love to lead you.
Yes, Mother, we want to give you our hearts, open and purified, so you can make us ready for communion. We want you to prepare us for the Heavenly Father, in the love of your Son. We say yes!
In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!
