Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! Today I call you to open yourselves to prayer. Prayer works miracles in you and through you. Therefore, little children, in the simplicity of heart seek of the Most High to give you the strength to be God's children and for Satan not to shake you like the wind shakes the branches. Little children, decide for God anew and seek only His will - and then you will find joy and peace in Him. Thank you for having responded to my call." (October 25, 2013)

Our Lady knows that we face many challenges in our lives. She understands the spiritual battle we are in. Satan is merciless, and attacks us at every turn, trying to make us take our eyes off of Jesus and instead make us look at his evil deeds and quake with fear. He wants to shake us like branches in the wind. He wants us to lose heart, to panic. Our Lady knows this. And so she has come to help us to defeat Satan. She has come to help us keep our eyes firmly fixed on God.

"Little children, decide for God anew and seek only His will..." Our safety lies in seeking only God, in desiring only God's will for our lives, in choosing to be God's children no matter what. St. Faustina wrote a beautiful prayer that expresses this firmness of faith and commitment that Our Lady desires for us. Let's pray them with confidence and peace. God is our Father and our Hope:

1322    The barque of my life sails along
Amid darkness and shadows of night,
And I see no shore;
I am sailing the high seas.

            The slightest storm would drown me,
            Engulfing my boat in the swirling depths,
            If You Yourself did not watch over me, O God,
            At each instant and moment of my life.

Amid the roaring waves
I sail peacefully, trustingly,
And gaze like a child into the distance without fear,
Because You, O Jesus, are my Light.

            Dread and terror is all about me,
            But within my soul is peace more profound than the depths of the sea,
            For he who is with You, O Lord, will not perish;
            Of this Your love assures me, O God.

Though a host of dangers surround me,
None of them do I fear, for I fix my gaze on the starry sky,
And I sail along bravely and merrily,
As becomes a pure heart.

            And if the ship of my life sails so peacefully,
            This is due to but one thing above all:
            You are my helmsman, O God.
            This I confess with utmost humility.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

(Don't be confused. The USA has not returned to Standard time while Medjugorje and most of Europe has returned to standard time, so we are 5 hours behind Medjugorje in the East, instead of the usual 6. )
