Dear Family of Mary!
Well, we made it! Our Consecration to Jesus through Mary is completed!! What an honor it was to pray our consecration prayer together while viewing Apparition Hill in Medjugorje, live!! Thank you to all who have prayed this consecration with us. Our united prayer and devotion to Our Lady is a great gift to her! Thank you!
In view of our consecration, the message Our Lady gave to us on August 2, 2013 has added meaning! Here is the message:
"Dear children, If only you would open your hearts to me with complete trust, you would comprehend everything. You would comprehend with how much love I am calling you; with how much love I desire to change you, to make you happy; with how much love I desire to make you followers of my Son and give you peace in the fullness of my Son. You would comprehend the immeasurable greatness of my motherly love. That is why, my children, pray because through prayer your faith grows and love is born, the love along which even the cross is not unendurable because you do not carry it alone. In union with my Son you glorify the name of the Heavenly Father. Pray, pray for the gift of love, because love is the only truth: it forgives everything, it serves everyone and it sees a brother in everyone. My children, my apostles, great is the trust that the Heavenly Father has given you through me, His handmaid, to help those who do not know Him, that they may reconcile with Him and follow Him. That is why I am teaching you love, because only if you have love will you be able to respond to Him. Again I am calling you to love your shepherds and to pray that, at this difficult time, the name of my Son may be glorified under their guidance. Thank you."
Our Lady needs us. She is so happy we have opened our hearts to her, with complete trust, so that she can lead us and change us and show us love. She needs us to be her apostles of love. This is how we can serve her and help her to reach her other children. The Heavenly Father has entrusted a big task to us through Our Lady. He needs us to be His love in this peaceless world. Our consecration opens us up to this call. May we live it with joy!
May we keep our hearts open to Mary, as her devoted children. May we listen to her voice, and follow her lead in this time of grace. May we be her apostles of love and peace!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
