Dear Family of Mary!
“Dear children! Today, I am calling you to a new life. It is not important how old you are, open your heart to Jesus who will transform you in this time of grace and, like nature, you will be born into a new life in God’s love, and you will open your heart to Heaven and the things of Heaven. I am still with you, because God permitted me out of love for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (February 25, 2019)
Our Lady is calling us to become new creations in Christ. She doesn’t want us to waste any more time riding the fence. We need to become new persons, completely new! And the newness has everything to do with becoming holy! Jesus and Mary invite us to reject sin, reject our self-centered attitudes, reject our Luke warmness and turn towards Jesus so that we can be made new, holy, clean, loving, kind, humble, sincere, truthful, patient, generous and giving, joyful, hopeful, faith filled, laughing people!
St. Paul said it this way:
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. So, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We beseech you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
The Father allowed Jesus to take on our sins so that we could be freed of them and become good and holy, righteous like He is. This gift of being made new is a miracle beyond compare. How does anyone repent, turn from evil, choose the good without help? It just doesn’t happen. But Jesus became our help. Jesus paved the way for our regeneration in love. So now we can indeed enter into a new life. We can live the life of God.
I think this message is a perfect preparation for Lent. What better Lenten practice could we choose than to become new!! We want to be new! It is a dream to be made new! But Jesus died for just that reason, that we could be made new. Unheard of!! Miraculous! Fantastic!
Mother, you call us to a new life and so we ask you to help us. Help us to open our hearts to Jesus this Lent, with a trust and love that will allow Him to come into our hearts and change them. We want to allow Jesus to give us new hearts, hearts of love, hearts filled with heaven and the things of heaven, hearts like your Immaculate Heart! May it be so, dearest Mother, may it be so!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
