Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children,  I, your mother, am coming anew among you out of love which has no end, from endless love of the endless Heavenly Father. And as I am looking into your hearts I see that many of you accept me as a mother and, with sincere and pure hearts, you desire to be my apostles. But, I am also the mother of those of you who do not accept me and who, in the hardness of your hearts, do not desire to come to know the love of my Son. And you do not know how much my heart suffers and how much I pray to my Son for you. I pray to Him to heal your souls because He can do so.  I pray to Him to illuminate you with the miracle of the Holy Spirit so that you may stop, always anew, betraying, cursing and wounding Him. With all my heart I pray for you to understand that only my Son is the salvation and the light of the world. And you, my children, my dear apostles, always carry my Son in your hearts and thoughts. In this way you are carrying love. All those who do not know Him will recognize Him in your love. I am always beside you. In a special way I am beside your shepherds because my Son has called them to lead you on the way to eternity. Thank you, my apostles, for your sacrifice and love." (September 2, 2014)

This message is so powerful, so full of heavenly inspiration, that I cannot take it all in. I have always thought that the best response to Our Lady's messages would be to turn them into prayers that I could say as a response to her call. For indeed, we cannot do what Our Lady asks without the Father's help. So making her requests and words of wisdom into a prayer would be a good way to help me respond to her call.

So here is a good stab at making this message a prayer. Thanks to Cindy who composed the first draft! I offer this as one way to take Our Lady's message and try to live it:

Heavenly Father, I thank you for sending Mary out of Your endless love for us. I thank you that she is coming anew among us. Thank you for those of us who accept her as a mother with sincere and pure hearts and desire to be her apostles. I pray that I may be among that number, for I love her so.

But Our Lady tells us that she is also the mother of those who do not accept her, out of the hardness of their hearts, and do not desire to come know the love of her Son Jesus. She tells us that her heart suffers and she prays to her Son, Jesus, for these souls.

I long to console Mother Mary. I long to pray for her intentions for these souls as she has revealed them to us. And so with Mother Mary I pray to Your Son, Jesus: Heal the souls of those who do not desire to come to know Your love, for You can do it. I pray to You, Jesus, to illuminate these souls with the miracle of the Holy Spirit so that they will stop, always anew, betraying, cursing and wounding You. With all my heart I pray for these souls to understand that only You, Jesus, are the Salvation and light of the world. (Here we can mention any souls we have on our hearts who are in need of this prayer.)

May I carry You, Jesus, in my heart and thoughts, so that those who do not know You will recognize You in my love. Thank you, Mother, for always being beside me. Please stay beside our shepherds, as we need them to lead us to eternity. I offer to you my acts of sacrificial love, and thank you for being my Mother. Amen.

Well, you can see how powerful Our Lady's words are, when they are fashioned into a prayer. This could be done with any of her messages, I believe.

God bless you, and may we all respond to Our Mother's call!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
