The Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary!

Dear Family of Mary!

I have never quite understood this feast day. To be honest, there wasn’t enough information for me. But I do understand that Our Lady, by a special grace, understood that she was to give herself entirely to God. This was her call, and she was given a heart for it as well. She was given prevenient grace, so that she would be conceived free of original sin. And in that state Our Lady chose to stay free of sin, and to give herself totally to God!

I wonder if when Jesus saw the poor widow enter the temple and put in two small coins, He was reminded of His mother, who gave all she had to the Father in that very same way. The widow offered her whole livelihood, and Mary offered her entire life. This is what we marvel at today. Our Lady gave herself to God entirely, her whole life through!

And think of the incredible work God was able to do through Our Lady’s total gift of herself to Him!! Jesus is the fruit of that gift!! Our salvation! The salvation of the whole world!!! Mary’s Yes to God made our salvation possible.

Mother Mary gave us a message in which she offers to help us make a gift of ourselves to Jesus. Pondering the Presentation of Mary, it makes sense that she could help us with that gift of self. Here is her offer of help:

March 18, 2002

“Dear Children!

As a mother, I implore you,
open your heart
and offer it to me,
and fear nothing.

I will be with you
and will teach you
how to put Jesus in the first place.

I will teach you to love Him
and to belong to Him completely.

Comprehend, dear children
that without my Son there is no salvation.

You should become aware
that He is your beginning and your end.

Only with this awareness
can you be happy
and merit eternal life.

As your mother,
I desire this for you.

Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Amen!

Our Lady wants us to put Jesus in the first place in our lives. Put Him there and keep Him there. In that way we will be saved, and also, at the end of our lives, we will see all the good the God has been able to do through us, as we live for Him! Yes, I want to put Jesus in the first place in my life! Mother Mary, help me to put Jesus in the very center of my life!!!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
