Like a child which is open to the love of the Father…
November 7, 2023
Dear Family of Mary!
The Psalm for today is Psalm 131. It is my favorite psalm. It is very short and very sweet. It conveys the humility and sweetness of children. Here it is:
O Lord, my heart is not proud,
nor are my eyes haughty;
I busy not myself with great things,
nor with things too sublime for me.
Nay rather, I have stilled and quieted my soul
like a weaned child.
Like a weaned child on its mother’s lap,
so is my soul within me.
O Israel, hope in the Lord,
both now and forever.
Like the Psalmist, Our Lady also calls us to be children. She constantly calls to us, “Dear children!” And she addressed us as “little children” and often as “My dear little children.” We are children to her. And in truth, we are children to the Father as well. It is important in our big important lives, to recall this fact often.
Here is a message which explains it very well:
July 25, 1996
Today I invite you to decide every day for God.
Little children, you speak much about God,
but you witness little with your life.
Therefore, little children, decide for conversion,
that your life may be true before God,
so that in the truth of your life
you witness the beauty God gave you.
I invite you again to decide for prayer
because through prayer,
you will be able to live the conversion.
Each one of you shall become
in the simplicity, similar to a child
which is open to the love of the Father.
Thank you for having responded to my call.”
May we become “in the simplicity, similar to a child which is open to the love of the Father!” Like the Psalmist so aptly understood, may we be “Like a weaned child on its mother’s lap!” Yes, Mother Mary we long to be on your lap, safe and secure as little children need to be!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
