Mary TV Daily Reflection 4/17/2015

Life exudes from the little ones!  Miraculous!

April 17, 2015

Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children!....You can help me to have the love, for the sake of which my Son died and then resurrected, win anew. Therefore, I am calling you, my apostles, to try to see something good in every creature of God, in all of my children, and to try to understand them....." (April 2, 2015)

I received a beautiful email from Olga yesterday in which she added something beautiful to this discussion about seeing something good in every creature of God:

I was also thinking of seeing 'something good' in every person, and I know it helps me very much to remember that every human being is created. Even Stalin and Hitler, even those wretched souls did carry something beautiful within them. Even Judas who betrayed Jesus, he did carry something beautiful within him, because he was created by the Loving Father and called to Life with Him.

So the one beautiful thing a person always has, that is his vocation, is his calling to life here on this earth and then in the Eternal Beatitude. It helps me always to remember that Our Father has a plan for every soul, even for the soul that seems to reject me at the moment. And that plan of the Father, that vocation is beautiful, and I can always offer up my life, my heart, so that the Lord may give the grace to this soul, to respond to His call... and then the beauty which is hidden in that person, may become manifest.

At times maybe we need to see with the eyes of faith that 'something beautiful'... so that people around us can actually become beautiful.

Always with you, sailing the digital sea... always with Gratitude!
Olga in Moscow

Well said, Olga!! The life of each one of us is our most basic and most important "good". We have been given immortal souls that are united to our mortal bodies in life! This mixture of temporal and eternal life in each human being is a wonder! We are aware of that wonder and awe in a special way when we behold a newborn baby. Each baby is a miracle of God. The "something good" we behold in a baby is very near the surface. I am sure you know what I mean. Life is exuding from the little one with such power. Their little soul is practically visible!

Sometimes it is good to remember that each person we meet was once a tiny newborn. Their life was precious and new, and meant by God. Sometimes it is this fact that helps us love them now.

Our Lady once said to us:

"Dear children! Today I invite you to decide for God once again and to choose Him before everything and above everything, so that He may work miracles in your life and that day by day your life may become joy with Him. Therefore, little children, pray and do not permit satan to work in your life through misunderstandings, the non-understanding and non-acceptance of one another. Pray that you may be able to comprehend the greatness and the beauty of the gift of life. Thank you for having responded to my call." January 25, 1990

This message connects well with our discussion of "something good" in each person. That "something good" is fundamentally life! If we can comprehend the greatness and beauty of the gift of life in each person, we will be on the way to loving and cherishing each one as well.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
