September 21, 2020 Reflection – Just the way you are!

St. Matthew, Apostle and Evangelist

Dear Family of Mary!

In Fr. Leon’s reflection for the 18th Day of the 33 Day Consecration to Jesus through Mary, he shared something amazing and encouraging.  I will quote him:

The Reflection for today:  If we wait until we are perfect to serve God, we will never serve Him because we will never be perfect.  There was a man who felt he was always saying the wrong thing when speaking to people, so he decided to stop speaking.  This went on for a whole week.  A friend of his asked him why he was silent all the time.  He explained his reason for it.  The friend told him how foolish this was.  “God has made you an outgoing, chatty person.  He is using you in that way to touch many hearts.” We should not be afraid of making mistakes.  We should be more afraid of not serving God in the freedom of our personality.  As Saint Irenaeus said, “The glory of God is a man fully alive.”

Fr. Leon brings to the fore something very important.  God has made each one of us completely unique!  We have a collection of gifts that make us one of a kind!!  And He loves to see us grow into the person we are created to be, with joy and gratitude, sharing who we are for the sake of others.  The only thing that can spoil this creation is sin, as we all know.  So that is why we must offer ourselves to the Lord constantly, trusting that He will help us to become freer and freer of sin, and more ready to love!

Our Lady has told us many times that she has chosen us, with our unique and singular gifts, just the way we are!  She understands the infinite variety of God’s creation, and she knows that each one of us is made, like snowflakes, as one of a kind!  She has said to us:

October 25, 2015 “…Little children, decide also today for holiness and take the example of the saints of this time and you will see that holiness is a reality for all of you. Rejoice in the love, little children, that in the eyes of God you are unrepeatable and irreplaceable, because you are God’s joy in this world. Witness peace, prayer and love…”

May 24, 1984 “Dear children! I have told you already that I have chosen you in a special way, just the way you are…”

April 02, 2015 “Dear children, I have chosen you, my apostles, because all of you carry something beautiful within you. You can help me to have the love, for the sake of which my Son died and then resurrected, win anew…”

Maybe we can take some time today to thank the Lord for how He created us, and ask Him to show us how we can make a return for His creative love for us, by loving Him back, just the way we are!!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
