LENT IS HERE….listen to our Mother dear!

We begin this Lenten Season of grace with a Message of the Blessed mother to Mirjana (Medjugorie)

“Dear children, When love is beginning to disappear on earth, when the way of salvation is not being found, I, the mother, am coming to help you to come to know true faith – living and profound – so as to help you to truly love.

As a mother, I am longing for your mutual love, goodness, & purity. My desire is that you be just and that you love each other. My children, be joyful in your soul, be pure, be children. My Son used to say that he loves to be among pure hearts, because pure hearts are always young and joyful.

My Son said to you to forgive and to love each other. I know that this is not always easy.

Suffering makes you grow in spirit. For you to spiritually grow all the more, you must sincerely and truly forgive and love. Many of my children on earth do not know my Son, they do not love Him; but you who do love my Son, you who carry Him in your heart, pray, pray and in praying feel my Son beside you. May your soul breathe in His spirit.

I am among you and am speaking about little and great things. I will not grow tired speaking to you about my Son – the true love. Therefore, my children, open your hearts to me. Permit me to lead you as a mother. Be apostles of the love of my Son and of me. As a mother I implore you not to forget those whom my Son has called to lead you. Carry them in your heart and pray for them. Thanks you.”

Note: These messages are not yet recognized by the Catholic Church as having a supernatural origin. They are good for our spiritual growth.

1 – LOVE – It seems it is disappearing from the earth! The greatest challenge of Christians is to “love the way Jesus loves”.

2 – PURITY – Let us make an effort not to indulge in impure thoughts, in impure videos, impure actions. They obscure our mind and soul, so that we will not be able to encounter GOD. “Blessed are the pure in spirit, they shall see God!”

3 – SUFFERING makes you grow in spirit. We don’t grow spiritually if we do not suffer. Suffering forces us to be detached from the pleasures of this life, making us more willing and ready to abandon this life.

4 – PERMIT ME to lead you as a Mother. Without Mary we cannot find Jesus, because Jesus comes from Mary.

5 – PRAY FOR YOUR PRIESTS – The greatest need of the Church today is HOLY PRIESTS. Probably we do not pray enough for them!
