St. Cyril of AlexandraDear Family of Mary!
“Dear children! This is the day that the Lord gave me to give Him thanks for each of you, for those who have converted and have accepted my messages and have set out on the way of conversion and holiness. Rejoice, little children, because God is merciful and loves you all with His immeasurable love and leads you to the way of salvation through my coming here. I love you all and give you my Son that He may give you peace. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (June 25, 2018)
When I first read this message, I had to stop myself from reading the first line incorrectly. I instinctively wanted to launch into a line from Psalm 118. It reads:
“This is the day which the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” (Ps 118:24)
We say these words at Easter time, when we are wild with joy over the Resurrection! But I had to stop and look at the words of the message:
“This is the day that the Lord gave me to give Him thanks for each of you…”
Truly Our Lady was filled with great joy on June 25th. She was rejoicing on that day, on that special day, because of us! The Lord gave Our Lady June 25th as a day to give Him thanks for each of us! Can you believe it? It seems that the Lord and Our Lady were together rejoicing over us!
But why are they rejoicing? Truly Our Lady has worked with us for a long time. She has come every day for 37 years to train us, teach us, pray with us and love us. And so hopefully now we are “those who have converted and have accepted [her] messages and have set out on the way of conversion and holiness”. Because of her guidance and teaching, we have begun to live the life of faith in earnest. And maybe we can now help her to reach her other children.
And so the Father set June 25th aside as the day for Our Lady to sing a song of thanksgiving and joy to Him because of us! They sang together over us, with great joy!!
Wow! “This is the day which the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” (Ps 118:24)
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PS. Psalm 118 is a wonderful song of thanksgiving and joy! We might pray it today in response to Our Lady’s joy!
