Mary TV Daily Reflection 1/23/2013

Two Hearts 
Consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary




January 23, 2013

St. Vincent of Saragossa


Dear Family of Mary!


This is one of the most precious messages Our Lady has given us in Medjugorje. I opened to it as I was preparing for this reflection, and immediately knew that it was for us today.


"Dear children! My invitation that you live the messages which I am giving you is a daily one, specially, little children, because I want to draw you closer to the Heart of Jesus. Therefore, little children, I am inviting you today to the prayer of consecration to Jesus, my dear Son, so that each of you may be His. And then I am inviting you to the consecration of my Immaculate Heart. I want you to consecrate yourselves as parents, as families and as parishioners so that all belong to God through my heart. Therefore, little children, pray that you comprehend the greatness of this message which I am giving you. I do not want anything for myself, rather all for the salvation of your soul. Satan is strong and therefore, you, little children, by constant prayer, press tightly against my motherly heart. Thank you for having responded to my call." (October 25, 1988)


As tensions rise in the world, we need to live our consecration to Jesus and Mary more and more intensely. "Satan is strong and therefore, you, little children, by constant prayer, press tightly against my motherly heart." Thank you, Lord Jesus, for such a Mother. Thank you, Mother, for our dear Lord Jesus! We consecrate ourselves to you both as we pray:


Consecration to the Heart of Jesus  
(Given by Our Lady to Jelena Vasilj, 11/28/1983) 

O Jesus, we know that You are sweet (Mt. 11:29).  
That you have given Your heart for us.  
It was crowned with thorns by our sins.  
We know that today You still pray for us  
so that we will not be lost.  
Jesus, remember us if we fall into sin.  
Through Your most Sacred Heart,  
make us all love one another.  
Cause hatred to disappear among men.  
Show us Your love.  
All of us love You.  
And we desire that you protect us with Your  
Heart of the Good Shepherd.  
Enter into each heart, Jesus!  
Knock on the door of our hearts.  
Be patient and tenacious with us.  
We are still locked up in ourselves, because we  
have not understood Your will.  
Knock continuously, Oh Jesus.  
Make our hearts open up to you,  
at least in reminding us of the passion  
which you suffered for us. Amen



Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary 
(Given by Our Lady to Jelena Vasilj, 11/28/1983) 

O Immaculate Heart of Mary, overflowing 
with goodness, Show us your love for us. 
May the flame of your heart, Oh Mary, 
Descend upon all peoples. 
We love you immensely. 
Impress in our hearts a true love. 
May our hearts yearn for you. 
Oh Mary, sweet and humble of heart, 
Remember us when we sin. 
You know that all mankind are sinners. 
Through your most sacred and maternal heart, 
Cure us from every spiritual illness. 
Make us capable of looking at the beauty of your maternal heart, 
And that, thus, we may be converted 
to the flame of your heart. Amen


In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
