The Ascension of the Lord!

The Ascension of the Lord
Dear Family of Mary!
The eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them. When they saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted. Then Jesus approached and said to them, “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” (Mt 28: 16-20)
Imagine watching Jesus, your Savior, whom you had just received back from the dead, leaving you once again. Jesus, who died such a terrible death had risen. You were filled with incredible joy. But not long after this, Jesus again left you. He gave you the promise of the Holy Spirit and then rose into the sky being swallowed up by the vast expanse. Your Jesus, your Savior, your Redeemer, your Friend, was now gone again.
How could this be borne?
Only with the promise He gave as He rose. “And Behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”
Our Lady has come from Heaven in these days to gather us together and guide us back to Jesus and Heaven. She will never stop calling us to follow her to eternity with her Son. May these messages awaken in our hearts a deep desire for heaven, a desire like that of the Apostles and disciples at the Ascension:
Easter Sunday, April 22, 1984
“We all rejoice in Heaven. Rejoice with us.”
November 27, 1986 “Dear children! Again today I call you to consecrate your life to me with love, so I am able to guide you with love. I love you, dear children, with a special love and I desire to bring you all to Heaven unto God. I want you to realize that this life lasts briefly compared to the one in Heaven. Therefore, dear children, decide again today for God. Only that way will I be able to show how much you are dear to me and how much I desire all to be saved and to be with me in Heaven. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
July 25, 2000 “Dear children! Do not forget that you are here on earth on the way to eternity and that your home is in Heaven. That is why, little children, be open to God’s love and leave egoism and sin. May your joy be only in discovering God in daily prayer. That is why, make good use of this time and pray, pray, pray; and God is near to you in prayer and through prayer. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
May 25, 2018 “Dear children! In this peaceless time, I am calling you to have more trust in God who is your Father in Heaven and who has sent me to lead you to Him. You, open your hearts to the gifts which He desires to give you and, in the silence of your heart, Adore my Son Jesus who has given His life so that you may live in eternity – where He desires to lead you. May your hope be the joy of a meeting with the Most High in everyday life. Therefore, I am calling you: do not neglect prayer because prayer works miracles. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
January 25, 2021 “Dear children! I am calling you at this time to prayer, fasting and renunciation, that you may be stronger in faith. This is a time of awakening and of giving birth. As nature, which gives itself, you also, little children, ponder how much you have received. Be joyful bearers of peace and love that it may be good for you on earth. Yearn for Heaven; and in Heaven there is no sorrow or hatred. That is why, little children, decide anew for conversion and let holiness begin to reign in your life. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
Mother, lead us to your Son, to eternity with Him in Heaven!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
