Faith will grow as we love God above all things.
March 10, 2023
Dear Family of Mary!
February 25, 2023 …I am with you because the Most High permits me to love you and lead you towards the joy of the heart, in faith which grows for all those who love God above all.
Our Lady tells us that our faith will grow as we love God above all things. Love really is the key to our life with God. Loving God changes everything. We begin to see all the ways that God is blessing us, when we love Him above all else. And that makes our faith grow and grow! What a wonderful fruit of our love for God! We see God’s hand everywhere, blessing us and helping us!!!
Our Lady has called us to love God above all else many times in her messages. In her gentle and simple way, Our Lady encourages us to understand that it is when we love God above all else, that we will find faith in our hearts, and in that faith we will receive love as well, a love that will change the world. Here are a few messages to meditate on this weekend:
Monday, November 2, 1981 Why did you show us paradise the day before yesterday? “I did it so that you could see the happiness which awaits those who love God.”
Monday, February 25, 1985 “For next week, I invite you to say these words: ‘I love God in everything’. With love, one obtains everything. You can receive many things, even the most impossible. The Lord wishes for all the parishes to surrender to Him, and I too, in Him. I desire it. Each evening, make your examination of conscience, but only to give thanks in acknowledgment for everything that His love offers us at Medjugorje.”
February 28, 1985 “Dear children! Today I call you to live the word this week: ‘I love God!’ Dear children through love you will achieve everything and even what you think is impossible. God wants this parish to belong completely to Him. And that’s what I want too. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
November 25, 1992“Dear Children! Today, more than ever, I am calling you to pray. May your life become a continuous prayer. Without love you cannot pray. That is why I am calling you to love God, the Creator of your lives, above everything else. Then you will come to know God and will love Him in everything as He loves you.
April 25, 1995 “Dear children! Today I call you to love. Little children, without love you can neither live with God nor with brother. Therefore, I call all of you to open your hearts to the love of God that is so great and open to each one of you. God, out of love for man, has sent me among you to show you the path of salvation, the path of love. If you do not first love God, then you will neither be able to love neighbor nor the one you hate. Therefore, little children, pray and through prayer you will discover love. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
March 25, 1996 “Dear children! I invite you to decide again to love God above all else. In this time when due to the spirit of consumerism one forgets what it means to love and to cherish true values, I invite you again, little children, to put God in the first place in your life. Do not let satan attract you through material things but, little children, decide for God who is freedom and love. Choose life and not death of the soul, little children, and in this time when you meditate upon the suffering and death of Jesus I invite you to decide for life which blossomed through the Resurrection, and that your life may be renewed today through conversion that shall lead you to eternal life. Thank you for having responded to my call…”
May 25, 2010 “Dear children! God gave you the grace to live and to defend all the good that is in you and around you, and to inspire others to be better and holier; but satan, too, does not sleep and through modernism diverts you and leads you to his way. Therefore, little children, in the love for my Immaculate Heart, love God above everything and live His commandments. In this way, your life will have meaning and peace will rule on earth. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
May our faith grow as our love for God grows!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
