September 9, 2010Dear Family of Mary!
He seemed to reply: "Yes. First they were my enemies and because of Me they hate you, because you are made in my image."
"Oh, yes, so they hate us because we remind them of You?"
"Well, because they know that I love you and have destined you for union with Me."
"Why do they hate so much?"
"They have sworn not to serve. They want only to be served, so they hate being like me, because I serve. They want to reign."
"Our dear Jesus said, 'The Son of Man has come to serve, not to be served.'"
"Yes, He came to show you the way to be just like Me. We serve."
"Well then, there is a lesson here. If I want to reign, I am listening to the wrong voice."
"Oh yes! My enemy uses a cunning disguise. He says to you, 'You deserve to do things your way. You are independent. You don't have to listen to anyone. Don't serve that person, take care of yourself.' This is the voice of evil. Instead, listen to Jesus who says, "The Son of Man has come to serve, not to be served. The least among you is the greatest. When you come to the feast take the lowest place.' This is the voice that leads to joy!"
"How can I slay Your enemies before You in my life?"
"Bring them before me, expose them to Me, reveal those voices of evil and renounce them. Cast them out, in Jesus' name. Cast them out of your heart, your mind, your soul, your will. Learn to discern them and expose them to Me."
"Yes Lord, I want to be like You."
"Good. Let your Mother teach you true humility, true love, true service!"Very interesting! To be like the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit is to serve! I never thought of that, but it is true. They never stop serving us! They create us, sustain us, redeem us, lead us, teach us, provide for us, comfort us, listen to us, love us up!! To be like God is to love! Our Lady is coming to foil the enemy in these days and bring us all back to the Father, through Jesus! Let's cooperate with her and accept the loving reign of Jesus in our lives, which means to let Him serve us!
In Jesus and Mary!
Cathy NolanPS. This photo was take in August of this year in Medjugorje when we were climbing Cross Mountain. This young boy is disabled and was having a very hard time climbing with his family. These two young men appeared and just swooped him up and carried him. You can see the joy on the boy's face! It was beautiful!
