Dear Family of Mary!
Our Lady has given so many messages. They are always powerful at the time they are given. But they also can grow in power and meaning over time. Often a phrase or sentence will pass us by. We will even forget it, until God brings it back into focus and shows us what Our Lady is saying. Her words are inspired by Jesus and the Holy Spirit. She speaks for our salvation!
After I had the waking dream of the little lights at ground level illuminating the darkness of the world above, I began to see that Our Lady had mentioned this image of being little lights several times over the years. I always liked the idea but didn’t think much about it. Now in these days, as the world grows ever darker all around us, I see those messages with new appreciation. Here is one such message:
June 02, 2017:
“Dear children, as in the other places where I have come to you, also here I am calling you to prayer.
(Our Lady makes the connection of her apparitions in Medjugorje with her other apparition sites, without naming them. We think of Lourdes, Fatima, Guadalupe… and we know that she always called her children first and foremost to pray.)
Pray for those who do not know my Son, for those who have not come to know the love of God, against sin, for the consecrated – for those whom my Son called to have love and the spirit of strength for you, for the Church.
(Our Lady asks for intercession for those who do not believe! To pray against sin in the world – which is spiritual warfare! To pray for priests and religious – those who need our intercession because they are so important for all of us, the Church!)
Pray to my Son, and the love which you experience from His nearness will give you the strength to make you ready for the works of love, which you will do in His name.
(She calls us to pray with the heart to Jesus. In prayer with the heart we can receive the love that Jesus has for us, a love that changes everything. In that love we can do great works!)
My children, be ready. This time is a turning point.
(Our Lady told us in June of 2017 that it was at that time a turning point. We needed to be ready. Today, as we see the world descending into chaos, we realize that she was right. Over the past three years, the battle has intensified, and we are right in the middle of it all. But how can we ready?)
That is why I am calling you anew to faith and hope.
(We must ask for the grace of faith and hope, both theological virtues. They make us ready for battle. We believe in Jesus with all our hearts, and we see that salvation is possible by our hope. Then we are equipped to move forward in the battle for souls.)
I am showing you the way by which you need to go, and those are the words of the Gospel.
(The words of the Gospel hold everything we need to move forward in faith and hope, and love!)
Apostles of my love, the world is in such need of your arms raised towards Heaven, towards my Son, towards the Heavenly Father.
(We must raise our arms in praise and petition to Jesus and the Father. We must desire God above all else, with every part of our being. Such prayer brings down the Holy Spirit. Such prayer changes us and makes us free and whole. Such prayer equips us to shine!)
Much humility and purity of heart are needed. Have trust in my Son and know that you can always be better.
(Humility and purity of heart make us little. When we are humble, we a free. We are surrendered to Jesus and know that all is in His hands. We are not blinded by our own importance. In fact we don’t even think of ourselves. That is how we can walk with the Lord in trust and constant conversion of heart.)
My motherly heart desires for you, apostles of my love, to be little lights of the world, to illuminate there where darkness wants to begin to reign, to show the true way by your prayer and love, to save souls. I am with you. Thank you.”
(Then she tells us exactly what we are called to do. “Be little lights of the world!” Where the darkness engulfs souls, we must, through our humility and purity, shine with the light of faith. We must shine with the truth and help others to find the way of truth through prayer and love. We must save souls from the darkness of atheism and despair. And we can do this if we stay close to our Mother and shine with her love!)
We may not think that our little lives have much meaning, but when we live them without fear in a dark place, the light will do its job. And the more of us who gather, the more the light will grow! This is how we can save souls. Little lights shining in their littleness without fear in a world that needs hope.
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
