Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! Anew, I am calling you to love and not to judge. My Son, according to the will of the Heavenly Father, was among you to show you the way of salvation, to save you and not to judge you. If you desire to follow my Son, you will not judge but love like your Heavenly Father loves you. And when it is the most difficult for you, when you are falling under the weight of the cross do not despair, do not judge, instead remember that you are loved and praise the Heavenly Father because of His love. My children, do not deviate from the way on which I am leading you. Do not recklessly walk into perdition. May prayer and fasting strengthen you so that you can live as the Heavenly Father would desire; that you may be my apostles of faith and love; that your life may bless those whom you meet; that you may be one with the Heavenly Father and my Son. My children, that is the only truth, the truth that leads to your conversion, and then to the conversion of all those whom you meet - those who have not come to know my Son - all those who do not know what it means to love. My children, my Son gave you a gift of the shepherds. Take good care of them. Pray for them. Thank you." (May 2, 2013)

In the April 25, 2013 message Our Lady told us: "May Sacred Scripture always be an incentive for you." And so we turn to Scripture to help us to understand the May 2, 2013 message. Our Lady speaks very clearly about judging, i.e. we should never judge! Especially in our most difficult moments, she warns us not to judge those around us, even those who seem to be our enemies. She wants us to love like Jesus loves, to love like the Heavenly Father loves. This kind of love forgives everything! This kind of love is fed by the love of the Father and Jesus for us, giving us the power to forgive like Jesus forgave on the Cross:

"And when they came to the place which is called The Skull, there they crucified him, and the criminals, one on the right and one on the left. And Jesus said, 'Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.'" Luke 23: 33-34

After the most brutal torture and public ridicule, while dying on the Cross amidst untold agony, Jesus spoke these words, words that excuse his violent murderers. 'Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." Jesus refused to judge, even then. He refused to draw a line between Himself and those who hated and mistreated Him. Jesus came to save, not to judge. And He showed His saving love in that moment. 'Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." This is a kind of love impossible to man. This is the kind of love that comes from God.

Our Lady wants us to love like Jesus loves. "...when it is the most difficult for you, when you are falling under the weight of the cross do not despair, do not judge, instead remember that you are loved and praise the Heavenly Father because of His love." When it is almost impossible to go on, when we are abandoned and alone like Jesus was on the Cross, Our Lady wants us to reject despair and call up from the depths of our beings the knowledge that we are loved by the Father. That deep knowledge of God's love for us will enable us to forgive others, and to say, like Jesus, "Father, forgive them: for they know not what they do." This is radical love that comes from Infinite Love, the love of God.

It sounds impossible. And yet, I believe that it is the only possible way to live through such moments and come out of them unscathed. The real danger in these dark moments is not our survival, it is the danger of losing our soul. Hate, despair, judgment, and unforgiveness can divide us from God forever. In these dark moments it is not those we judge who will be lost, it is our own soul that is in danger, if we turn from God to judgment and hate. So Our Lady gives us the way out, the key to survival in trials. The key is to love as Jesus loves. If we do, we will emerge from our trials unscathed and filled with joy.

Our Lady is so practical. She does not speak in flowery terms. She tells us the plain truth. Do not judge! It will lead to your own perdition!

May we open our hearts to her words, and to the Word of God Himself, and learn now the way to life!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
