Mary TV Daily Reflection 7/10/2014



July 10, 2014

Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children, I, the mother of all of you gathered here and the mother of the entire world, am blessing you with a motherly blessing and call you to set out on the way of humility. That way leads to the coming to know the love of my Son. My Son is almighty, He is in everything. If you, my children, do not become cognizant of this, then darkness/blindness rule in your soul. Only humility can heal you. My children, I always lived humbly, courageously and in hope. I knew, I became cognizant that God is in us and we are in God. I am asking the same of you. I desire for all of you to be with me in eternity, because you are a part of me. I will help you on your way. My love will envelop you like a mantle and make of you apostles of my light - of God's light. With the love that comes forth from humility you will bring light to where darkness/blindness rule. You will be bringing my Son who is the light of the world. I am always alongside your shepherds and I pray that they may always be an example of humility for you. Thank you." (July 2, 2014)

"I desire for all of you to be with me in eternity, because you are a part of me."

How many times do we say this very thing, when we think of someone we love? Especially if it is someone who seems to be rejecting God, or at least not interested in Him. We think to ourselves, "I must pray for him, so that we will be together in heaven. I would be so sad if he was not there."

When we are mindful of eternity, it changes everything about the way we think. Little annoyances that could occupy us and trouble us become meaningless. Problems with our finances, our jobs, our broken sinks and flat tires lose their power over us when we think of eternity. Everything falls into the proper perspective with heaven in view. And those we love look differently to us as well. We forget our petty grudges and disputes when we think of eternity. We long to reconcile and forgive, so that we will be together in heaven.

Imagine what it must be like to interface with us here on earth, when you are already in heaven! Our Lady knows eternal life. It is not just an idea for her. It is her reality. But out of love for us, she re-enters our temporal existence to connect with us. All of our sufferings, trials, sins, and annoyances must seem to her very different than they seem to us. She of course sympathizes with our trials and pain. She definitely doesn't want us to suffer. But she sees them as the tools they are to help us to be purified and ready for eternity. She sees everything in relation to life with God in heaven.

And she loves us so much that to think that any one of us would not make it to heaven is a source of great pain for her. That is what she means when she says we are a part of her. We are her children. We are her beloved ones. She can't imagine eternity without us.

And so Our Lady has been coming for 33 years to help us learn to choose eternal life with God. She has patiently reminded us of heaven over and over again. She has tirelessly repeated the main messages to us, because they are the tools we need to prepare for eternity. And she has tried to bond with us through her presence, so that we will recognize her as our Mother and cling to her till the end. Like any good mother, she will not let us be alone in this life or the next. She is with us to bring us through this life into the next.

Hearing Our Lady say that I am a part of her has changed me. I feel her love as my mother in a powerful way. She identifies with me, with us. She has claimed us as her own children. We are in the family now. We are bonded to Mother Mary through the mother-child relationship. She is committed!! It is now up to us to complete the bond, by being committed to her. Our "yes" to her call will glue us to her side, so that we will be able to manage all the struggles ahead with her help, and with our eyes fastened on eternity.

"I desire for all of you to be with me in eternity, because you are a part of me."

We desire to be with you for all eternity because we are a part of you, Mother!"

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
