Life is short and eternity is waiting…
September 25, 2021
“Dear children! Pray, witness and rejoice with me
because the Most High continues to send me
to lead you on the way of holiness.
Be aware, little children,
that life is short
and eternity is waiting for you
to give glory to God with your being,
with all the saints.
do not worry about earthly things,
but long for Heaven.
Heaven will be your goal
and joy will begin to reign in your heart.
I am with you
and bless all of you
with my motherly blessing.
Thank you for having responded to my call.
I couldn’t resist sharing this message again with you all. Our Lady is such a good Mother. She is teaching us how to think properly, how to desire rightly, how to aim at what is most important!
And I feel that this is what St. Paul was teaching in this chapter of Colossians. Let’s prayerfully read these words of very good advice, and try to incorporate them in our lives!
The New Life in Christ
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming.* In these you once walked, when you lived in them.
But now put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and foul talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old nature with its practices and have put on the new nature, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.
Here there cannot be Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free man, but Christ is all, and in all. Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, and patience, forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, as you teach and admonish one another in all wisdom, and as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
(Colossians 3: 1-17)
