God has permitted me to be with you…
Dear Family of Mary!
This is Day 6 of our Novena before the 40th Anniversary!
February 25, 2021
“Dear children! God has permitted me to be with you also today, to call you to prayer and fasting. Live this time of grace and be witnesses of hope, because I repeat to you, little children, that with prayer and fasting also wars can be suppressed.
Little children, believe and live this time of grace in faith and with faith; and my Immaculate Heart does not leave any of you in peacelessness if you have recourse to me. I intercede for you before the Most High and I pray for peace in your hearts and for hope for the future. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
In this message we see again that Our Lady did not come of her own volition, but with the permission of God! He it is who allows Our Lady to be with us! He knows how very good it is for us to be with her. She is such a gift of faith, hope and love for us. We see how many people have been healed and changed by encountering Our Lady in Medjugorje. God wants us to spend time with Our Lady! He loves that we come to Medjugorje to be with her!!
The Father also sends Our Lady because she can help us to suppress the wars in the world. She is the Queen of Peace! She knows how to bring peace. Prayer and fasting bring peace. And that is why she has established such a vibrant culture of prayer and fasting in Medjugorje. It is a powerful engine for peace.
Our Lady says she will not leave any of us in peacelessness! But we must have recourse to her. That means we must turn to her and seek her out. Spend time with her and let her teach us the ways of peace!
Finally, Our Lady intercedes for us with the Most High for peace in our hearts and hope for the future! She is the best of intercessors. She is the gift of peace in these days of war. She is the way to peace. We are blessed to be her children!
Let us pray:
How to Give Oneself to Mary, Mother of Goodness, of Love and of Mercy
I will ask, make me find it again. Amen.
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
