Mary TV: May 18, 2017 Reflection - Remain in my love....

Dear Family of Mary!
Today's Gospel reading is one of the shortest of the year. But it is also one of the most profound:
Jesus said to his disciples:
"As the Father loves me, so I also love you.
Remain in my love.
If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love,
just as I have kept my Father's commandments
and remain in his love.
"I have told you this so that
my joy might be in you and
your joy might be complete." (Jn 15: 9-11)
There is a connection of love in God's economy. The Father loves Jesus. Jesus loves us as the Father loves Him. And we love them both back, by keeping their commandments. We love the Father and Jesus by having hearts like their hearts. Hearts that give, forgive, serve, and choose life. Our Lady has spoken about this chain of love:
January 25, 2016 "Dear children! Also today I am calling all of you to prayer. You cannot live without prayer, because prayer is a chain which brings you closer to God. Therefore, little children, in humility of heart return to God and to His commandments so that with all of your heart you are able to say: as it is in Heaven so may it be on earth. You, little children, are free to in freedom decide for God or against Him. See where Satan wants to pull you into sin and slavery. Therefore, little children, return to my heart so that I can lead you to my Son Jesus who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Thank you for having responded to my call."

Living God's commandments is the way to align ourselves with Heaven! It is the way to put things right. And then we will live in God's love. Of course we can only do the best we can, but Jesus already knows that and provides what is lacking by His mercy.
Here is an interesting message from 2012:
December 25, 2012 Our Lady came with little Jesus in her arms and she did not give a message, but little Jesus began to speak and said: "I am your peace, live my commandments." With a sign of the cross, Our Lady and little Jesus blessed us together.

You see! Baby Jesus' words are so clear, so simple! He is our peace; we must live His commandments to enter that peace. Remaining in the love of the Father and the Son is peace. It is life on earth as it is in heaven. Our Lady is with us to bring us into that peace, to help us remain in God's love, to live the commandments. She is here to help us.

Let us remain in Jesus' love always.
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
