Dear Family of Mary!
"...My children, you are those who, along with prayer, need to completely surrender to my Son so that you may no longer live but my Son may live in you - so that all those who do not know my Son may see Him in you and come to desire to know Him.
Pray that in you they may see resolute humility and goodness, a readiness to serve others; that in you they may see that you live your vocation in the world with the heart, in communion with my Son; that in you they may see meekness, tenderness and love for my Son as well as for all brothers and sisters..." (April 2, 2018)
Our Lady wants us to radiate her Son, to be signs of His presence and love for all those who do not yet know Him. She wants us to be as much like Jesus as we possibly can. We must be meek, tender, humble, good, ready to serve, loving, and clearly united to Jesus in our hearts, if we are to help others to find Him. Really our lives must become hymns of praise for Jesus, so that everything we do will point to Him as the source.
St. Augustine speaks about our life with Jesus as a song of praise in the sermon used for the Office of Readings, Third Week of Easter, Tuesday. I just love the concluding paragraphs of this sermon:
"Live good lives, and you yourselves will be his praise!"
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PS. One of our shipmates, Dr. Jen Prins, has initiated a new ministry out of her response to Our Lady's call in Medjugorje. She has begun a movement designed to attend to the practical needs of our priests, especially parish priests, who have very busy schedules and find it hard to take good care of their own needs. Jen hopes this outreach will bring needed support to our priests through works of mercy and service!
· Raise awareness among the lay faithful of the temporal and spiritual needs of priests, and promote works of mercy for our priests.
To raise awareness, we are selling T-Shirts!
These shirts are great gifts for your pastor or can also be worn to spread the word about this new ministry of love.
