The December 15, 2020, Reflection – A time of love, warmth, prayer and joy!

A time of love, warmth, prayer and joy!

December 15, 2020
Christmas Novena, Day 1

Dear Family of Mary!

Today the parish of Medjugorje begins a Novena before Christmas!  Each day the parish will climb Apparition Hill, praying the Rosary.  Mary TV will stream this event, live, each day, at 2:00 pm Medjugorje time.  You can join in on our Channel at www.marytv.tv

Each day I will write a short reflection on a line from Our Lady’s November 25, 2020 message. There are nine sentences!!  Shall we begin!

“Dear children! This is a time of love, warmth, prayer and joy…” (November 25, 2020)

When Our Lady first gave us this message, I was struck with how odd this declaration sounded!  In the midst of Covid, lock downs, isolation, loneliness, and fear, how could she say that?

And yet, she was right!  This is the time of love, warmth, prayer, and joy!

Why?  Because this is God’s time! And God is Lord of Heaven and Earth! He is in charge of all time!  And He is the God who loves us unconditionally, who’s heart is on fire with love for us, who comes to us in prayer, and who’s Spirit transmits joy!  This is God’s time!

Advent tells us that we have everything to live for!  The answer to all our needs, hopes, desires, and longings is about to be born in a stable to a Virgin!  Our hope is not in vain.  Jesus, our Savior is coming!

I found a lovely Litany of our Lady of Hope, which gives us so much to ponder as we wait this Advent.  Our Lady is the Woman of Hope!  She can teach us how to live in expectation of the coming of the Lord.  She is our Mother, our Light, our Sweetness, and our Hope!

May we be filled with the love, warmth, prayer, and joy that Our Lady announces, through the graces she can procure for us today!

Let us pray:
