You be courageous and do not be afraid!
September 7, 2022
Dear Family of Mary!
Our Lady concluded her August 25, 2022 message with these words of encouragement:
“You be courageous and do not be afraid, because God is with you.”
Our Mother Mary is a courageous woman! Just think about it. God sent the Angel Gabriel to her, announcing His desire that she become the Mother of His Son. She was all alone, a young woman. She couldn’t run to her mother or father. She had to think it through herself. And she did! And in courage (which is a heart filled with faith in God) she said “Yes”!!!! The whole world changed in that moment!!
After Jesus was born, she and Joseph had to run from Herod, all the way to Egypt, so save Jesus’ life. No body guards, no help anywhere except in her heart filled with faith. But she did it!
When Jesus was 12 or so, he remained behind in Jerusalem, at the Temple. He didn’t ask permission or tell them what He was doing. She lived through three days of agony, searching for Him. But with her heart filled with faith in God, she did it!
When St. Joseph died, Our Lady had to face life as a widow. That is never easy. But she did it, silently with her heart filled with faith in God.
When Jesus began his public ministry, Our Lady had to follow him in his homelessness and poverty, teaching and preaching to all who would listen. She saw the Leaders and Teachers mistreat Him, and speak ill of Him. She bore all of that with Him.
But she continued in peace with her heart filled with faith in God.
Finally, on Calvary she stood by the Cross of her Son, as He died for all mankind. No words can describe the agony she shared with Him. But her courage (her heart filled with faith in God) never flagged.
Our Lady is our leader in courage. If she tells us to be courageous, we must say yes to her!
I have gathered several messages in which Our Courageous Mother has called us to be courageous, and to encourage each other as we follow Jesus in this very sad world. There are quite a few. You might use them for reflection over the next days! We want to follow Our Lady in her example of courage!
Friday, September 16, 1983 “Pray, pray, pray! Do not be discouraged. Be in peace because God gives you the grace to defeat satan.”
December 25, 2001 “Dear children! I call you today and encourage you to prayer for peace. Especially today I call you, carrying the newborn Jesus in my arms for you, to unite with Him through prayer and to become a sign to this peaceless world. Encourage each other, little children, to prayer and love. May your faith be an encouragement to others to believe and to love more. I bless you all and call you to be closer to my heart and to the heart of little Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
December 25, 2004 “Dear children! With great joy, also today I carry my Son Jesus in my arms to you; He blesses you and calls you to peace. Pray, little children, and be courageous witnesses of Good News in every situation. Only in this way will God bless you and give you everything you ask of Him in faith. I am with you as long as the Almighty permits me. I intercede for each of you with great love. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
September 25, 2011 “Dear children! I call you, for this time to be for all of you, a time of witnessing. You, who live in the love of God and have experienced His gifts, witness them with your words and life that they may be for the joy and encouragement to others in faith. I am with you and incessantly intercede before God for all of you that your faith may always be alive and joyful, and in the love of God. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
November 25, 2015 “Dear children! Today I am calling all of you: pray for my intentions. Peace is in danger, therefore, little children, pray and be carriers of peace and hope in this restless world where Satan is attacking and tempting in every way. Little children, be firm in prayer and courageous in faith. I am with you and intercede before my Son Jesus for all of you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
May 25, 2016 “Dear children! My presence is a gift from God for all of you and an encouragement for conversion. Satan is strong and wants to put disorder and unrest in your hearts and thoughts. Therefore, you, little children, pray so that the Holy Spirit may lead you on the real way of joy and peace. I am with you and intercede before my Son for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
April 25, 2017 “Dear children! Love, pray and witness my presence to all those who are far away. By your witness and example, you can draw closer the hearts that are far from God and His grace. I am with you and intercede for each of you so that, with love and resoluteness, you may witness and encourage all those who are far from my Immaculate Heart. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
November 25, 2018 “Dear children! This is a time of grace and prayer, a time of waiting and giving. God is giving Himself to you that we may love Him above everything. Therefore, little children, open your hearts and families, so that this waiting may become prayer and love and, especially, giving. I am with you, little children, and encourage you not to give up from what is good, because the fruits are seen and heard of afar. That is why the enemy is angry and uses everything to lead you away from prayer. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
March 25, 2020 “Dear children! I am with you all these years to lead you to the way of salvation. Return to my Son; return to prayer and fasting. Little children, permit God to speak to your heart, because Satan is reigning and wants to destroy your lives and the earth on which you walk. Be courageous and decide for holiness. You will see conversion in your hearts and families; prayer will be heard; God will hear your cries and give you peace. I am with you and am blessing you all with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
July 25, 2020 “Dear children! In this peaceless time in which the devil is harvesting souls to draw them to himself, I am calling you to persevering prayer, so that in prayer you discover the God of love and hope. Little children, take the Cross in your hands. May it be your encouragement for love to always win, in a special way now when the Cross and faith are rejected. You be a reflection and an example with your lives that faith and hope are still alive and a new world of peace is possible. I am with you and intercede for you before my Son, Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
April 25, 2021 “Dear children! Today I am calling you to witness your faith in the colors of spring. May this be a faith of hope and courage. May your faith, little children, not waver in any situation, not even in this time of trial. Go courageously with the risen Christ towards Heaven, which is your goal. I am accompanying you on this way of holiness and am placing all of you in my Immaculate Heart. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
November 25, 2021 “Dear children! I am with you in this time of mercy and I am calling all of you to be carriers of peace and love in this world where, through me, little children, God is calling you to be prayer and love, and an expression of Heaven here on earth. May your hearts be filled with joy and faith in God; that, little children, you may have complete trust in His holy will. That is why I am with you, because He, the Most High, is sending me among you to encourage you to the hope; and you will be peacemakers in this peaceless world. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
