Prayer opens hearts!

Dear Family of Mary!

November 25, 2022

“Dear children!

The Most High has sent me to you to teach you prayer.

Prayer opens hearts and gives hope,
and faith is born and strengthened.

Little children,
with love I am calling you:
return to God,
because God is love and your hope.

You do not have a future
if you do not decide for God;

and that is why I am with you
to guide you
to decide for conversion and life,
and not for death.

Thank you for having responded to my call.”

This message is so very powerful. Our Lady calls us to prayer, the kind of prayer that opens our hearts, and gives us hope, and gives us faith and strength. This kind of prayer penetrates our being and lifts us up to the Lord! It sustains us in trials and shows us the wonders of God!

St. Faustina must have had this kind of prayer, because she was given incredible insights into God! She was not educated. And she spent most of her time working in the convent, washing and cooking and cleaning. But her heart was open, full of hope and faith, and was strong!!

Here is an entry from her diary in which she shares one of her experiences in prayer. It is a good example of the kind of prayer Our Lady wants to teach us:

From St. Faustina’s Diary:

180. + During Advent, a great yearning for God arose in my soul. My spirit rushed toward God with all its might. During that time, the Lord gave me much light to know His attributes.

The first attribute which the Lord gave me to know is His holiness. His holiness is so great that all the Powers and Virtues tremble before Him. The pure spirits veil their faces and lose themselves in unending adoration, and with one single word they express the highest form of adoration; that is – Holy The holiness of God is poured out upon the Church of God and upon every living soul in it, but not in the same degree. There are souls who are completely penetrated by God, and there are those who are barely alive.

The second kind of knowledge which the Lord granted me concerns His justice. His justice is so great and penetrating that it reaches deep into the heart of things, and all things stand before Him in naked truth, and nothing can withstand Him.

The third attribute is love and mercy. And I understood that the greatest attribute is love and mercy. It unites the creature with the Creator. This immense love and abyss of mercy are made known in the Incarnation of the Word and in the Redemption [of humanity], and it is here that I saw this as the greatest of all God’s attributes. (Diary entry 180)

Well, St. Faustina’s spirit “rushed toward God with all its might!” This is the kind of prayer that strengthens one’s faith and hope and leads us to God, who is our life!

May we all open our hearts to our Mother in these Advent days, and let our prayer grow strong!!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
