Memorial of the Mary, Mother of the Church
Dear Family of Mary,
Today is the wonderful new Memorial of Mary Mother of the Church! Our Lady can pour out much needed graces and blessings today through the Church. She truly is the Mother of the Church and we have been experiencing her Motherhood in a personal way in Medjugorje. She has come to us to be our Mother in these times when the Church is under severe attack. She has come to buoy us up, give us her mantle of protection and help us to be strong in faith for our brothers and sisters. She told us this in her message of June 2, 2016:
“Dear children, as the Mother of the Church, as your mother, I am smiling as I look at you: how you are coming to me, how you are gathering around me, how you are seeking me. My comings among you are proof of how much Heaven loves you. They indicate to you the way to eternal life, to salvation.
My apostles, you who strive to have a pure heart and to have my Son in it, you are on the good way. You who are seeking my Son are seeking the good way. He left many signs of His love. He left hope. It is easy to find Him if you are ready for sacrifice and penance – if you have patience, mercy and love for your neighbors.
Many of my children do not see and do not hear because they do not want to. They do not accept my words and my works, yet through me, my Son calls everyone. His Spirit illuminates all of my children in the light of the Heavenly Father, in the unity of Heaven and Earth, in mutual love – because love invokes love and makes works more important than words.
Therefore, my apostles, pray for your Church, love it and do works of love. No matter how betrayed or wounded, it is here because it comes from the Heavenly Father. Pray for your shepherds so that in them you may see the greatness of the love of my Son. Thank you.”(June 02, 2016)
Here is a beautiful prayer, written by St. Pope Paul VI, to Mary Mother of the Church. We can pray it together and take to heart our call to help Our Lady save the Church:
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
