Dear Family of Mary!

“…My children, apostles of my love, I am teaching you that my Son is not only asking for continuous prayers, but also for works and feelings – that you believe, that you pray, that with your personal prayers you grow in faith, that you grow in love. To love each other is what He asks for – that is the way to eternal life. My children, do not forget that my Son brought the light to this world, and He brought it to those who wanted to see it and receive it. You be those, because this is the light of truth, peace and love…” (January 2, 2019)

Jesus asks us for things. He sees us, knows us, and asks us for things. Our Lady said he asks for continuous prayer, for works and feeling [of love], for our belief in Him, prayer to Him, and that we grow in faith and love. Jesus calls us to change and grow, according to Our Lady.

Reuben sent this lovely response to Our Lady’s message which shows how very right Our Lady is!! Reuben wrote:

From reading the Gospels,
I see the eyes of Jesus.

They follow me.

They are so powerful, serene and penetrating.
I understand that they see souls entirely:
both as they are in their woundedness,
and as they could be when transformed in His love.

It is this look which converts the apostles so immediately.

Christ sees, in someone like Matthew,
both the traitor of His people as tax collector,
and their eventual evangelist by way of repentance.

He sees in Peter the man who dies upside down
and the man who runs away at the dawn of his master’s passion.

Christ’s look invites a decision.
His clarity of sight is perfect,
but so is His desire for only and completely the good.

I must look this way at people too.
I must consider myself the greater sinner,
and they – all of them – the more capable of sanctity.

I must invite the grace to see
what that person in front of me would look like
were they fully alive in the love of God.

That is light!

Amen! Thank you, Reuben and may we all see in the Light of Jesus, with eyes of love and of truth so as to invite our brothers and sisters into the Kingdom.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
