Sts. Simon and Jude, Apostles
Dear Family of Mary!
“Dear children! Today I call you to prayer. May prayer be a balm to your soul, because the fruit of prayer is joy, giving and witnessing God to others – through your life. Little children, in complete surrender to God, He will take care of everything and will bless you; and your sacrifices will have meaning. I am with you and bless all of you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (October 25, 2019)
Again Our Lady speaks to us about prayer. She wants prayer to be a balm for our souls. That means prayer will heal our souls, like a fragrant ointment soothes and heals a wound, so prayer heals our souls. We all have wounds. Because we all have sinned, we all have wounds left in our souls, our hearts, and our memories that need to be healed. We have sad memories, guilty memories, anxious memories that haunt us. We need healing.
Prayer is a balm for our souls when we completely surrender to God. We are healed when we abandon ourselves to God and let him take care of everything. Surrender in prayer is the moment when God can come into our lives and heal us. Surrender is the moment when we really pray with the heart. This is the prayer that heals.
Fr. Gabriel Amorth shared a healing prayer, a prayer from the heart for our inner healing. We can pray it with peace and surrender, knowing that Our Lord wants to do everything that we ask for in this prayer.
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
