Dear Family of Mary!
“Dear children, my beloved Son always prayed and glorified the Heavenly Father. He always said everything to Him and trusted in His will. This is what you, my children, should also do, because the Heavenly Father always listens to His children. One heart in one heart – love, light and life…” (November 2, 2019)
Jesus always prayed. Jesus always glorified the Heavenly Father. Jesus always said everything to the Father. And Jesus always trusted what the Father said to Him. He trusted the Father’s instructions, the Father’s will. This was the amazing life of prayer that Jesus lived.
I have been aware recently that one of my biggest obstacles to prayer is that I do not always say everything to God. I constantly have an inner conversation. It is a running dialogue about my life: What should I eat today? What should I wear? How can I solve this problem or that? But it is always an inner dialogue with myself.
But Our Lady says that Jesus “always said everything to [the Father] and trusted in His will.” Jesus was not having an inner conversation with Himself. He was always turned toward the Father. He was always in communion with His Father. They were and are one! “One heart in one heart – love, light and life!”
In the Scriptures, the Lord Himself spoke about this problem of only having an interior dialogue with one’s self. Listen to the story of the Pharisee and the tax collector from Luke:
Our Lady wants us to have a running conversation with the Father just like Jesus. This interior dialogue we have going on all the time can become prayer. God is with us always, listening, waiting for us to speak to Him. All we have to do is realize His presence. Jesus knew the Father was always with Him. And His entire life was spent walking and talking with the Father.
We can live a life of communion with God!! One heart in one heart – love, light and life!!! May we learn to turn our interior dialogue into prayer, a heart to heart conversation with the Lord. We will be changed!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
