Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children, If only you would open your hearts to me with complete trust, you would comprehend everything. You would comprehend with how much love I am calling you; with how much love I desire to change you, to make you happy; with how much love I desire to make you followers of my Son and give you peace in the fullness of my Son. You would comprehend the immeasurable greatness of my motherly love. That is why, my children, pray because through prayer your faith grows and love is born, the love along which even the cross is not unendurable because you do not carry it alone. In union with my Son you glorify the name of the Heavenly Father. Pray, pray for the gift of love, because love is the only truth: it forgives everything, it serves everyone and it sees a brother in everyone. My children, my apostles, great is the trust that the Heavenly Father has given you through me, His handmaid, to help those who do not know Him, that they may reconcile with Him and follow Him. That is why I am teaching you love, because only if you have love will you be able to respond to Him. Again I am calling you to love your shepherds and to pray that, at this difficult time, the name of my Son may be glorified under their guidance.  Thank you." (August 2, 2013)

I want to share with you an email I received from Deb. She talks about a line in the August 2, 2013 message, and how she came to understand it. As we await the September 2 message, we can again thank Our Lady for her message in August!  Deb wrote: 

I wanted to share my reflection on Our Lady's August 2nd message. I don't always understand her messages, but I think I get this part:

"That is why, my children, pray because through prayer your faith grows and love is born, the love along which even the cross is not unendurable because you do not carry it alone"

After a year dealing with cancer, I definitely understand the "you do not carry it alone" part. Although Jesus and Mary were both with us 24/7 through that journey entire, they also provided a group of apostles. Family members, co-workers, friends and neighbors all gave us amazing support. While no one human being could give 24/7 support, they created a tapestry. One friend would give us a meal, another would offer to babysit our daughter. A relative might sew us a blanket, while another visited my husband in the hospital. Together, all of them helped us to carry that cross. They all prayed for us (probably hundreds of people; praying thousands of prayers). The result was not only that we didn't carry our cross alone - it was also an interwoven "net" of support for us. It was truly amazing to watch. That's what I think she means when she says "even the cross is not unendurable because you do not carry it alone". Certainly she was there and her Son was there supporting us - but they also provided apostles for us. To make sure that we knew we were not alone. Deb

Thank you, Deb, for sharing your experience with us. This puts "flesh and bones" on Our Lady's words. It is such a comfort to know we are not alone, that Jesus and Mary are making us a family that travels through life together, helping each other to go the distance. Thank you so much for sharing with us and we pray you are in full recovery!

Today Our Lady will appear to Mirjana Soldo and hopefully give us another message. Mary TV will stream the apparition live. I will send out the message when I get it. Let's quiet our hearts to receive Our Lady's words to us. She is molding us and shaping us into her little army, her family of love. Let's be open to Our Lady's guidance so that we can be "signs" to others. Signs of love, peace, prayer, faith, humility, conversion and hope. What joyful things to signify!!

This week, Denis and I are visiting our son Tom and his wife, Heather, and our youngest granddaughter, Aoife! She is three months old and we love her so much. We are in Baltimore, Maryland. I intend to do a reflection each day, as usual. But they may be brief. Thank you for understanding!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
