Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! With joy in the heart I love you all and call you to draw closer to my Immaculate Heart so I can draw you still closer to my Son Jesus, and that He can give you His peace and love, which are nourishment for each one of you. Open yourselves, little children, to prayer - open yourselves to my love. I am your mother and cannot leave you alone in wandering and sin. You are called, little children, to be my children, my beloved children, so I can present you all to my Son. Thank you for having responded to my call." (June 25, 2013)

"You are called, little children...."  There is so much I would like to say about being called. Our Lady tells us we are called. Who is calling us? She definitely calls us. She calls us to be her children, to live her messages, to pray, to fast, to attend Holy Mass, to go to Confession, to love our neighbors and our enemies, to draw close to her Son....she calls us to many things. But in this message she reveals the call beneath all those calls. She tells us: "You are called, little children, to be my children, my beloved children, so I can present you all to my Son."

We are called to be Our Lady's children. She calls us to be her children. But though this call comes through Our Lady, it originates in the Trinity. They are the ones calling us to become Mary's children. Why? Because it is part of their great plan to save us all. It is the plan that St. Louis de Montfort understood so well. It is the plan St. Maximilian Kolbe was so excited about. It is the plan revealed to the children of Fatima. It is the plan embraced by Blessed John Paul II and dramatically made manifest through Our Lady of Medjugorje.

On June 2, 2012 she said to us:

"Dear children, I am continuously among you because, with my endless love, I desire to show you the door of Heaven. I desire to tell you how it is opened: through goodness, mercy, love and peace - through my Son. Therefore, my children, do not waste time on vanities. Only knowledge of the love of my Son can save you. Through that salvific love and the Holy Spirit He chose me and I, together with Him, am choosing you to be apostles of His love and will. My children, great is the responsibility upon you. I desire that by your example you help sinners regain their sight, enrich their poor souls and bring them back into my embrace. Therefore, pray, pray, fast and confess regularly. If receiving my Son in the Eucharist is the center of your life then do not be afraid, you can do everything. I am with you. Every day I pray for the shepherds and I expect the same of you. Because, my children, without their guidance and strengthening through their blessing, you cannot do it. Thank you."

Our Lady was chosen by the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit to be the Mother of God. And now she, with them, is choosing us to be her children, her apostles of love and peace. We are the predestinate of whom St. Louis de Montfort wrote, those chosen in the last days to bring about the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary! This is the time, Our Lady's time. And we are part of her time, part of the plan for saving countless souls and bringing them back to God.

This call to be Mary's children is definitive. If we say "yes" to this call, it will change our lives forever. We will be changed by our "yes" to this call. Why? Because by saying "yes" we will become children. We will become the children of the Beatitudes, humble, poor, meek. And in that condition of children, we will be able to show other poor sinners the way back to God. They will not be afraid of us, put off by us. They will see us as like themselves, and yet full of peace, hope, faith, love and joy. Then they will follow us to the door to heaven, to Jesus. They will find the way to life. This is the triumph, souls finding the door of heaven. This is the great coup, when all that the enemy has claimed as his own will be taken away from him. He will find his hands empty, and Heaven will be full, full of the souls saved by God's love.

May we say "yes" to the call of Our Lady, the call to be her beloved children. May we say "yes".

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
