Mary TV Daily Reflection 10/27/2010

October 27, 2010

Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! May this time be a time of prayer for you. My call, little children, desires to be for you a call to decide to follow the way of conversion; therefore, pray and seek the intercession of all the saints. May they be for you an example, an incentive and a joy towards eternal life. Thank you for having responded to my call."(October 25, 2010)

Mother Mary speaks of eternal life in this message.  Through prayer and conversion and the intercession of the saints, she tells us we will move towards eternal life.  This reminds me of Marija's witness in Vienna on September 23, 2010.  Her precious words on that occasion seem to echo this message in a beautiful way:

Christian:  "Marija, in one message Our Lady gave to her parish through you, she says "I wish that you may be happy in this world and with me your will be in heaven one day, that is my desire and the aim of my coming."  When you hear this message full of joy and promises, what do you feel?  How are you when you receive that message?"

Marija:  "It is a great joy.  It is a nostalgia, an intense longing. Since the beginning we have had the desire that she would take us by the hand and she would take us to heaven.  We want her to take us to heaven.  There is a great desire for heaven in us that we be closer to God and the saints in heaven and we become holier.  Our Lady is asking us to all become holy, to become saints.  She always says that we can never have true joy if we don't have joy in God.  We have so many worries sometimes.  We have so many occupations, houses, a few houses, so many material things and more and more of everything.  But every day we see that Our Lady wants us to have simply more of God himself.  She wants us to find an equilibrium between the spiritual and the material things.  Our Lady is always inviting and urges us because we think too much about worldly things.  

"This is one example. Our Lady came to Vicka and Jakov and wanted to take them to heaven. Jakov said, 'Take Vicka, because she is one of 8 children, and I am the only one with my mother, and my mother would be sad.'  He thought he would never come back.  His mother would be sad if he died.  Our Lady smiled and showed them heaven, hell, and purgatory. She said that there are so many people who do not believe that there is heaven, hell and purgatory.  

"And through the message that she gave us, she said that our life is like a flower, and that we are here in a passing way.  Only eternal life does not pass.  For that reason she asks us to think even more of the spiritual life and paradise.  She wants us to think of hell and purgatory.  Our life will be different if we think of the life after this one.  She wants us to understand that our life is only passing like a flower and that here she asks us to live this life of paradise on earth. If only we would pray and become one with God.  When we are one with God and his Mother, then the triumph of her love and His love will happen and we shall be new people. 

"We saw that this is possible.  We saw it through many people who came to Medjugorje and converted through Medjugorje.  We became witnesses not only of Our Lady's messages but also of God's love for man through the many people who got healed and became witnesses of Our Lady's presence.  Our Lady calls us all to be joyful.  Only in God have we peace and joy. This is truly what Our Lady wishes of us.  Our Lady says that Jesus died for us on the cross in order to give us joy and peace and life.  All which isn't joy and isn't God is not important.  Our Lady wishes that we be like the image of God, that we live this short life in joy,  that we may understand as it says in the Bible that in this 80 short years of our life, we are truly on a path, we are only passing by.  This is what Our Lady shows in heaven, hell and purgatory, to show that these realities exist and that we should only care for this new civilization of love, that is what Our Lady wishes."  (Marija at St. Stephen's Cathedral, September 23, 2010)

We can feel the deep desire for heaven in Marija's words.  She has touched heaven every day for almost 30 years now.  She knows what awaits us.  It must only be a miracle that keeps her feet on the ground!  Marija wants heaven and so should we!

In Jesus and Mary!
