Again, today, it seems good to reflect on Jesus as the Light! Jesus said to us yesterday in the Gospel (Jon 12:44-50):
“I came into the world as light, so that everyone who believes in me might not remain in darkness.”
Jesus came to rescue us from the darkness. He came to reveal the light of Heaven to all men. The Father sent Him to do just that. But it doesn’t stop with Jesus! He needs us to help Him with the rescue mission. No one should be left in the darkness of sin and death.
Our Lady says the same in this message:
November 2, 2011
the Father has not left you to yourselves.
Immeasurable is His love,
the love that is bringing me to you,
to help you to come to know Him,
so that, through my Son,
all of you can call Him ‘Father’
with the fullness of heart;
that you can be one people in God’s family.
However, my children,
do not forget that you are not in this world only for yourselves,
and that I am not calling you here only for your sake.
Those who follow my Son
think of the brother in Christ as of their very selves
and they do not know selfishness.
That is why I desire
that you be the light of my Son,
that to all those who have not come to know the Father,
to all those who wander
in the darkness of sin, despair, pain and loneliness,
you may illuminate the way,
and that with your life,
you may show them the love of God.
I am with you.
If you open your hearts,
I will lead you.
Again I am calling you:
pray for your shepherds.
We are called to carry the Light of Christ to our brothers and sisters, to all those around us who need to know the love of Jesus. This is not necessarily a planned campaign. It can be done throughout your normal day, with the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. He will do the shining through us if we remain in Him at all times!! How exciting is that!!
Here is the prayer to Our Lady we are praying every day in May!
Litany to the Holy Name of Mary
In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!
