Dear Family of Mary!
November 25, 2010 “Dear children! I look at you and I see in your heart death without hope, restlessness and hunger. There is no prayer or trust in God, that is why the Most High permits me to bring you hope and joy. Open yourselves. Open your hearts to God’s mercy and He will give you everything you need and will fill your hearts with peace, because He is peace and your hope. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
Fr. Oisin Eoghan Martin, part of the American Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, gave a homily on June 4, 2022 at English Mass in Medjugorje which is directly connected with the message above! It is a fantastic homily!!! I want to share it with you all but it is too long to transcribe all at once. So here is the beginning of it, and I am including the link to the video on Mary TV’s website with the entire homily!
Homily for English Mass in Medjugorje on June 4, 2022 by Fr. Oisin Martin:
I want to begin with a question. And the question is “What is the biggest problem in your life?”
What is the biggest problem in your life? What is the biggest problem in your country? what is the biggest problem in the world? What has been the biggest problem in the history of the planet?
It’s not the war in the Ukraine, or Covid, or sin, though sin flows from it. This problem affects every area of your life. It affects your mental health. It affects your physical health. It affects your mood, your relationships, your prayer life, your struggles. It affects the ability of God’s work in our lives. And the entire world is shaped by it. All the problems we have in the world happen because of it…And because of it, one angel in Heaven, called Lucifer, decided to do his own thing.
And because of it, one couple called Adam and Eve started sin. This has been affecting us ever since. And it is the same problem for each one of us here. It is the same problem. This is the biggest problem in our lives. Not the thing you were thinking about two minutes ago.
It is that we don’t trust. We don’t believe with all of our hearts that our Father truly loves us. We don’t trust that He always wants our happiness and He has our happiness at stake. We don’t believe that He is in complete control of every single aspect of our lives with no exceptions. We don’t believe with all our hearts in His Church, His Commandments, even the messages that Our Mother Mary is giving to us in Medjugorje.
In Ephesians 3:20 God speaks to us through St. Paul: “God desires to accomplish all things in us in a measure far beyond what we can ask or conceive.” God desires to accomplish amazing and awesome things in each one of our lives. Regardless of who we are or our circumstances. And the only thing we should really be worried about is “God what do you want me to do?” In all honesty, for me, for Fr. Leon, for all of us, our daily question should be: “God what do you want me to do?”
We worry, we fear, we get anxious, we get angry, we take control, we judge we condemn, because we don’t completely and fully trust our Heavenly Father…
God bless you all!! We are living in important and blessed times. Stay close to Mother Mary!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
