Dear Family of Mary!
“Dear children! I am listening to your cries and prayers, and am interceding for you before my Son Jesus, who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Return, little children, to prayer and open your hearts in this time of grace and set out on the way of conversion. Your life is passing and, without God, does not have meaning. This is why I am with you to lead you towards holiness of life, so that each of you may discover the joy of living. I love you all, little children, and am blessing you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (June 25, 2020)
Our Lady’s Anniversary message is much like her messages throughout the years she has been coming to Medjugorje. She mentions many of the same things she has said to us, time and time again:
“I am listening to your cries and prayers, and am interceding for you before my Son Jesus…” She has told us she intercedes for us over 70 times. Of course, we always need to hear this! We need Our Lady’s intercession on our behalf before the Lord. Her prayers are so powerful. Think of the Wedding at Cana, and how Jesus changed his mind and changed water into wine when she interceded! Mary’s intercession is vital for our sanctification.
“…my Son Jesus, who is the Way, the Truth and the Life” She calls us to love, follow, learn from, and adore her Son Jesus, who is all we need! The Way to eternal life, the Truth that sets us free, and the Life which will never end. This is the only focus she wants us to have in our lives.
“Return, little children, to prayer…” The first Stone…
“Open your hearts in this time of grace…” One of the things she asks us to do almost every message! We cannot pray, cannot progress in our relationship with Jesus without open hearts.
“Set out on the way of conversion…” One of the five stones. Most necessary! To convert is to turn towards God. And that is the way we want to be going.
“Your life is passing and, without God, does not have meaning…” Our Lady constantly is calling us to look to our eternal home, and keep our gaze on heaven. This is the only reason to live!
“This is why I am with you to lead you towards holiness of life, so that each of you may discover the joy of living…” Holiness and the joy of living are also constant themes. Holiness give us joy in our lives. Holiness is the imprint of Jesus on our hearts.
“I love you all, little children, and am blessing you with my motherly blessing…” Our Lady tells us she loves us at least 80 times in her messages. Probably many more. She loves us and that is why she is with us, blessing us and working so hard to sanctify us.
Well, why did I enumerate all these favorite themes from Our Lady’s messages, and make a big deal out of the fact she shared them on the 39th Anniversary? Because it speaks to me of how Our Lady sees the time that we are in. Many of us may have been wondering if Our Lady would give us a big apocalyptic message on the 39th Anniversary. Would she begin announcing the secrets? Would she give us a warning?
But she didn’t. And I think I know why. If there was going to be a big event, an act of God, the best thing for us to be doing would be to live her messages, her five stones, her incessant pleas to us to convert, pray with open hearts, understand our true future and aim at it, desire holiness and discover the joy of life, cling to Jesus, our Way, Truth and Life, and allow her to love us and bless us every day! These things will make us ready for anything that comes our way. Why, because they prepare us for Heaven.
So, it gave me great peace that Our Lady stayed true to her mission among us. We have such a Mother!! She will be able to get us through anything!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
