“Dear children, today also I am calling you all in order that each one of you decides to live my messages.
God has permitted me also in this year, which the Church has dedicated to me, to be able to speak to you and to be able to spur you on to holiness.
Dear children, seek from God the graces which He is giving you through me. I am ready to intercede with God for all that you seek so that your holiness may be complete. Therefore, dear children, do not forget to seek, because God has permitted me to obtain graces for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (8/25/87 – Queen of Peace)
Live the message says Our Lady. Live and put to life the message she is giving.
In the world we live today, these are not easy words to swallow. It is not easy to live the message when we live in a world that hates God.
One of the visionaries of Medjugorje just said, that the majority of the world does not want God. And the one who does not want God, the soul is dead. We have a lot of walking zombies around who are dead in the soul. No Jesus, no life! Its that simple.
But Our Lady desires more for her children. She desires our holiness. This Mother is determined to help us. And she is here to help us IF WE LISTEN TO HER AND PUT TO LIFE THE MESSAGE.
All Christians are called to holiness, says the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Holiness does not always mean to live an austere lifestyle. Holiness is simply living a life of prayer, the sacraments, and renouncing sin. There are some who are called to a deeper spiritual walk with God, and some are even called to be martyrs. But this is not the case for the majority of Christians.
God is simply calling us to put Him in the first place in our lives, and walk the talk, live His Commandments.
IF YOU SAY YOU ARE CHRISTIAN AND YOU BELONG TO GOD, THEN ACT LIKE IT.
Our Lady says to SEEK several times in this message. Jesus told us in the gospel of Matthew “ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened…” Those who seek will find. Seek Him. Ask Him. Tell Him what you need.
Gaze at the crucifix if you are struggling in your faith life. Look upon Him whom they have crucified. See what our sins have done to Him. <strong>Ask the question, ‘why would anyone lay His life down in this way freely if there were not something greater to follow after it?’
We are coming into a new year. The year of “FAITH” which the Holy Father has proclaimed. This is a time to seek and look for the truth. Look for God. He is waiting for you in His Father’s House, silently hidden in the tabernacle. Bear your heart and give Him all your problems and difficulties. Take the hand of the Mother of God, Who knows the way to her Son.
If you do not know how to pray, simply follow her messages. Our lady’s prayer is the perfect prayer. She is prayer itself. She will tell you how and what she wants you to pray for. This is the mystery of the message. And you will come to see how close heaven is to you.
Dear Mother, touch every heart that will read this post, and draw them into the refuge of your Immaculate Heart. Lead them to Jesus. Ave Maria!
