Dear Family of Mary,

"Dear children! I am here, I am among you. I am looking at you, am smiling at you and I love you in the way that only a mother can. Through the Holy Spirit who comes through my purity, I see your hearts and I offer them to my Son. Already for a long time I have been asking of you to be my apostles, to pray for those who have not come to know God's love. I am asking for prayer said out of love, prayer which carries out works and sacrifices. Do not waste time thinking about whether you are worthy to be my apostles. The Heavenly Father will judge everyone; and you, love Him and listen to Him. I know that all of this confuses you, even my very stay among you, but accept it with joy and pray that you may comprehend that you are worthy to work for Heaven. My love is upon you. Pray that my love may win in all hearts, because that is the love which forgives, gives and never stops. Thank you." (February 2, 2015)

"Dear children! I am here, I am among you. I am looking at you, am smiling at you and I love you in the way that only a mother can."

I think this is an amazing statement from Our Lady. It is as if she is standing over our bedsides, each one of us, and she is trying to wake us up from a long sleep, or a bad dream or even a coma. She is trying to get us to focus on the most amazing fact of all. Mary, our Mother, is here with us. She is among us. She is looking at each one of us, and gazing upon us with her motherly gaze of love and compassion.

I can hear her saying, "Hello....wake up....sleepy head....I'm here....I'm with you...I am looking at you...I am smiling at you...I love you as only your mother can love you...wake up!!!!!"

But what is making us so dull witted, so sleepy, so unaware of our Mother's presence?

It could be any number of things:
Sorrow
Sadness
Sloth
Fear
Anger
Resentment
Unforgiveness
Remorse
Discouragement
Lack of Faith
Lack of Prayer
Etc. 

But whatever it is that is dulling our hearts and keeping us from recognizing the presence of Our Mother, it needs to go. This is no time to shrink back or to hide. Our "issues" must be dealt with so that we can respond to the love of Mother Mary with open and free hearts. She needs us. She is calling us.

She even tells us that she will take care of what is in our heart that impedes us. We don't even have to do it all by ourselves. "Through the Holy Spirit who comes through my purity, I see your hearts and I offer them to my Son." Our Lady is able to understand us because of the power of the Holy Spirit working through her. She can see those impediments lurking in our hearts, and she offers them to Jesus, who can heal us. We have only to say yes, to open ourselves to her, and live our consecration to her with abandon. She will clear out the rubbish and make our hearts clean and ready for action.

It may be that each morning Our Lady stands by our bedside, gazing at us with love, and hoping that we will perceive her there through our eyes of faith. If we did, then we would respond to her loving presence with a cry of joy and contentment because our Mother is with us. How different our day would be if we began it with Mary. How much peace and joyful strength would we have!!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
