MY MARIAN REFLECTION FOR TODAY
What is the purpose of your life? What is the purpose of my life? I can't answer for you, but I can try to answer for myself. I think, as Our Lady says in this particular Message, that we are in Her plans for the spread of Her Messages, from the many apparitions that have taken place over the years and around the world. So, for myself, I started working for Our Lady when I read about Fatima, and then Garabandal, and now, Medjugorje! By the way, notice the picture of Our Lady of Sorrows above! About 45 years ago, when they were stripping the churches of Mary's images, I found and bought a large portrait of the image in a "Second Hand" store, and gave it to the Workers of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel on Long Island, who hung it up in their conference room. I was drawn to Our Lady's sufferings.
Along with that, Mother Mary called me to the ministry of Deacon, to love and pray, suffer and serve my brethren whom I meet along the way. So, because I can't serve physically by giving conferences and showing movies about the Apparitions, I spend myself Blogging and spreading Our Lady's words through the Internet! God, in His mercy, has kept me alive a lot longer than I thought He would. My time on this planet is short and I want to do as much as I can for God's glory in the little time I have left. Our Lady says "I love you; I look out for you; I bless you!" And I say back to Her: "I love you too!; I love working for you!; May you be blessed for ever and ever!"
