“Dear children, today when Jesus is born anew for you in a special way, I want to call you to conversion. Pray, pray, pray for the conversion of your heart, so that Jesus may be born in you all and may dwelling you and come to reign over your entire being. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (12/25/01)
Now we are getting down to brass tactics. Here is the whole purpose of the call of the Mother of God. MAY JESUS BE BORN IN YOU ANEW.
St. Irenaeus once said, “the glory of God is man fully alive”. Jesus is the glory of God. Fully human and fully divine.
The Mother of God wants nothing less for us. She wants her Son to be born anew in us. She wants Jesus to be visible in us, the glory of God in the Spirit of Jesus.
This is what Adam had in the beginning. He was filled with life until he disobeyed God and sinned against God, which brought death. And from that point on, it would be only through toil and labor that we should get bread to eat and earn merit for eternal life.
Our Lady is the perfect image of how to conceive Jesus in the heart through prayer and a longing and desire for the savior to enter the world. She ardently prayed to God for His coming before the angel Gabriel was sent from God. And then the Holy Spirit overshadowed her, ultimately planting the seed of the Word made flesh in her womb. And she triumphantly gave birth to the Word made Flesh into the World.
It is the same for us, we have to have the desire and longing for communion with God, and pray to the Holy Spirit to come and over shadow us and baptize us a new, so that a new birthing of Jesus is born in our hearts, and then we will ultimately bring Him to life in the world. We must become the living Word in the flesh.
Our Lady said, “pray, pray, pray for the conversion of your heart.”
Dear friends, conversion of heart is necessary for Jesus to live in us. When we cooperate with sin, we cooperate with satan. When we reject sin and desire conversion of heart, then we are choosing Jesus. The more that the spirit of Jesus will abide in us the more life will come to the world.
Our Lady said in 1981 and perpetually that the sin of the world is so great and there are so many of them. This is how heaven looks down upon the earth. If we can see it in this perspective, then we can see how great the sin is in universal terms. The earth is dark as it was in the beginning (Gen. 1:1).
The Mother of God remains at the foot of the cross perpetually praying to her Son to forgive the sins of the world. He eyes she once said are always on the work of redemption in her Son.
Where there is sin, there is no life. And because of the great sin on the earth, satan is manifesting more and more in perverse ways. Can we not perceive this already. Just look at what the world is becoming like, a Godless generation as if man is his own God.
When we experience conversion of heart, we are saying yes to God. And we are allowing the Spirit of Jesus to possess our hearts in that area. Once Jesus has claimed the victory in one area, then we begin to work on our hearts in another area to defeat the sin in ourselves.
The Father wants to see His Son. in us. Remember Jesus is the only acceptable sacrifice that pleased the Father. Therefore, everything we do, we have to look like Jesus. We have to decrease, (die to our self) and let Jesus increase in us.
Pray, pray, pray unceasingly for the conversion of your hearts.
Blessed Mother obtain for us the gift of a deep conversion of heart. Teach us how to live a life of beatitude as you taught your Son Jesus in the home. I want to be your child, humble and devout. I renew my Fiat to you this day as you gave yours to the world. Obtain for us every grace and blessing from God and pour it all into our hearts. Our Lady Queen of Peace, pray for us!
