Dear Family of Mary!

 
"Dear children, give the gift of your life to me and completely surrender to me so that I may help you to comprehend my motherly love and the love of my Son for you. My children, I love you immeasurably and today, in a special way, on the day of the birth of my Son, I desire to receive each of you into my heart and to give a gift of your lives to my Son. My children, Jesus loves you and gives you the grace to live in His mercy, but sin has overtaken many of your hearts and you live in darkness. Therefore, my children, do not wait, say `no' to sin and surrender your hearts to my Son, because only in this way will you be able to live God's mercy and, with Jesus in your hearts, set out on the way of salvation."(December 25, 2012, Jakov)

 

"My children, I love you immeasurably and today, in a special way, on the day of the birth of my Son, I desire to receive each of you into my heart and to give a gift of your lives to my Son." Our Lady is a good Mother, an attentive Mother. All mothers anticipate the birthdays of their children, planning the birthday party, and buying gifts, inviting friends and family, and serving the cake and ice cream. Mothers love to celebrate birthdays! Our Lady is no different. She loves to celebrate Jesus' birthday.

 

And through this message she reveals to us the gift she wants to give to Jesus for this birthday! She wants to give Him us!

 

She knows that He thirsts for us. That He longs for us to be united to Him in love and joy. Jesus loves us so much. And so, as a good Mother, Mary is striving to unite us to Jesus, through her Heart. This is the essence of consecration. We enter Mary's Heart and she brings us to Jesus. We are His birthday presents!

 

As we approach the feast of the Epiphany, let's do as Our Lady asks. Let's say "no" to sin, and "yes" to love. Let's enter Mary's Heart and allow her to give us to Jesus, gifts for the Epiphany!

 

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
