May 14, 2020 Reflection – Our Lady’s Imperatives!

St. Matthias, Apostle

Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children, this is a time of gratitude.  Today I ask love from you. Don’t look for faults in others and don’t judge others.  I expect you to love and to spread the truth because the truth is eternal, constant and always up to date.  Bring the light of my Son.  Drive out the darkness that wants to seize you more and take you far away from my Son, Jesus. Don’t worry, I am with you.  Thank you for responding to my call.” (May 4, 2020)

Our Lady used several imperatives in her message through Ivan! Here they are:

Don’t look for faults in others…

Don’t judge others…

Bring the light of my Son…  

Drive out the darkness….

Don’t worry….

Here is what the dictionary says about imperative sentences:

The imperative is used to give commands and orders. The form of the verb used for the imperative is the base form of the main verb, which is used without a subject. Walk to the corner, turn right, and cross the road; it is expressive of a command, entreaty, or exhortation
When you really want to move your audience to action, you use an imperative. The verb is spoken without a subject and “you” is understood. It is the sort of thing that gets people moving!!

I think that Our Lady really does want to get us moving! Why? Because there is danger close at hand in our world today. We are surrounded by the lies and darkness of the devil, and he is strong right now. And so, as a Mother she is trying to guide us into safety, just as any mother would do if her children were in danger.

When she says, “Don’t look for faults in others…” she is telling us that if we start down that road it will lead us away from the one thing we can do, and that is to love. It will take away our peace. God is the only one who can manage another person’s faults. Our job is to pray for others and be examples of mercy and love.

When she says, “Don’t judge others…” she is warning us that the judgement we give will be the judgement we receive. God alone can judge a soul. Judgement leads us into darkness.

When she says, “Bring the light…” she is giving us a positive command, something we can all do! We can bring Jesus into our lives and the lives of others, share His Word, His love, His peace. It is like taking a torch light into a dark cave and helping all those trapped in the darkness of that cave the light they need to leave that darkness. It is freedom, when the Light of Christ comes.

When she says, “Drive out the darkness that wants to seize you more and take you far away from my Son, Jesus…” she is asking us to carry Christ with us always, constantly. The Light of Christ drives out the enemy!!! The Light, which is Christ, saves us from every assault of the devil, driving him away and giving us peace.

And when she tells us: “Don’t worry…” she is reminding us that she is with us and she will never leave our side. She is with us, and there is nothing to fear. It is important to let go of worry and trust Our Lady.

I pick up a bit of urgency in Our Lady’s words. She is not just describing what we should do, she is commanding us to get up and do what she is telling us to do, to follow her into the safety of the Light of Christ. Jesus is the Light, as St. John told us:

Again, Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (Jn 8: 12)

As we pray, let’s let Our Lady’s imperatives energize us to action. We need to listen to her. She is with us to bring us to Jesus, our safety. When Mama talks, we listen!!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PS. Don’t forget to pray this short but powerful prayer to the Holy Spirit:
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful
and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love.

V. Send forth Thy Spirit and we shall be created.
R. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray. O God, Who by the light of the Holy Spirit didst instruct the hearts of thy faithful, grant by the same Spirit that we will be truly wise, and ever to rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
