Learn to listen to my Son
March 23, 2023
Dear Family of Mary!
Our Lady gave us a wonderful message through Mirjana on March 18th:
March 18, 2023
“Dear children, I am calling you, through prayer and mercy, to come to know my Son all the better; to learn to listen with a pure and open heart; to listen to what my Son is saying to you in order to come to see spiritually. That, as one people of God in communion with my Son, you may bear witness to the truth with your life. Pray, my children, that, together with my Son, you can bring only peace, joy and love to all your brothers and sisters. I am with you and am blessing you with a motherly blessing.”
Our Lady calls us to learn to listen. We humans have the capacity to listen! We have ears that take sounds and send them to our brains where we can receive and organize those sounds into words or music or the activity around us. These sounds help us to understand and interface with our surroundings. It is an incredible gift.
But we also need to have spiritual ears, that can receive Jesus’ words to us, His guidance, His teaching, His truth, His love. Those spiritual ears are the ears of our hearts. And they also need to be trained to hear, just as our physical ears (with our brains) have learned to hear earthly sounds.
And so Our Lady has been helping us to hear Jesus, to hear His words to us, through her messages and through prayer and mercy which make us receptive to Jesus’ words. She needs us to hear Jesus on all levels of our lives, so that we can help all those around us to find Him and learn to love Him as well.
I find that my spiritual ears are enhanced when I am in Medjugorje. Heaven is so near, so tangible, that hearing Jesus is not so hard. May we all find our spiritual ears and really use them!!
Denis and I are so very grateful to be here in Medjugorje. Today again we received so much love and grace. We walked back to the building site this morning. The pictures below show the foundations and walls, well prepared for the next steps in construction.
The picture above is of a beautiful statue of Our Lady that is displayed on the little road which leads to our building site. It is as if she is inviting all to come and see what she is building here!! I have always loved this statue and I am thrilled that it is so near our building site. A little gift from Mother Mary!!
Please keep us in prayer. We are praying for you all the time!!
God bless you all!
