Put on the armor of God!
October 29, 2020
Dear Family of Mary!
”Dear children! At this time, I am calling you to return to God and to prayer. Invoke the help of all the saints, for them to be an example and a help to you. Satan is strong and is fighting to draw all the more hearts to himself. He wants war and hatred. That is why I am with you for this long, to lead you to the way of salvation, to Him who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Little children, return to the love for God and He will be your strength and refuge. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (October 25, 2020)
“Satan is strong and is fighting to draw all the more hearts to himself. He wants war and hatred. That is why I am with you for this long, to lead you to the way of salvation, to Him who is the Way, the Truth and the Life…”
Our Lady has been leading us into the depths of the spiritual life! She has been with us so long, to teach us the way of salvation, which is Jesus! Our Lady knows that Satan is fighting against us, and she wants us to be prepared. That preparation consists in becoming united with her Son Jesus, the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
St. Paul walked along “the Way” with great fidelity and courage. And here is what he taught about the troubles of his time. They are the same today. All the trouble comes ultimately from our adversary, the Devil. We must stand, like St. Paul, in faith and strength, wearing the armor of God and not give in!
Pray on this powerful scripture which happens to be the first reading for Holy Mass today and let the strength of Jesus fill you:
Brothers and sisters: Draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power. Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the Devil. For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens. Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and, having done everything, to hold your ground.
So, stand fast with your loins girded in truth, clothed with righteousness as a breastplate, and your feet shod in readiness for the Gospel of peace. In all circumstances, hold faith as a shield, to quench all the flaming arrows of the Evil One. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
With all prayer and supplication, pray at every opportunity in the Spirit. To that end, be watchful with all perseverance and supplication for all the holy ones and also for me, that speech may be given me to open my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the Gospel for which I am an ambassador in chains, so that I may have the courage to speak as I must. (Eph 6: 10 -20)
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
