6/25/12 Anniversary Message
“Dear children! With great hope in the heart, also today I call you to prayer. If you pray, little children, you are with me and you are seeking the will of my Son and are living it. Be open and live prayer and, at every moment, may it be for you the savor and joy of your soul. I am with you and I intercede for all of you before my Son Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
Praise be Jesus Christ dear friends who has made is visitation to the world through His holy Mother! To God be glory now and forever!
What a tremendous blessing that has come to the world in this time of grace, this time of our visitation from heaven, and yet, how many really realize the magnitude of this time that has been given to the world for men to reconcile with God. The scriptures have come to life, and we are now in the story of the book of life.
Friends, I thank the Almighty God for what He is doing for us in this time. 31 years of divine visitations every day from heaven. On this 31st anniversary, the visionary Marija said, Our Lady came with joy.
This is important to know especially when we hear the message she gave to the world above, because she began the message as such;
“Dear children! With great hope in the heart, also today I call you to prayer…”
Do you hear the excitement in her voice? Something is happening here. Something that we are not conscious of, but Blessed Mother is joyful and she said, her heart is filled with GREAT hope. WOW!
Great hope in heavenly and eternal terms, in a universal language. Not by what we would say as human beings when we say, “hey that’s great! or I”m happy for you, great job…” This just does not carry any weight.
But when the words come from Heaven and we hear that the Mother of God’s heart is filled with GREAT HOPE, God is doing something, and she sees and knows with full knowledge that He is at work in the hearts of men.
To have this kind of Hope one is steeped in great faith in the mighty works of God. And to confirm it was the voice of the Virgin Mary who said, “NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD!” She believes with her whole being this word, and proclaimed it loudly in song through her Magnificat.
There are over 150 references to Hope in the scripture. Hope is one of the Theological virtues that is sealed in the soul at baptism.
Here are just a few words from scripture about HOPE for the sake of this reflection:
“…in hope creation would be set free; for in hope were were saved, who hopes for what one sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait with endurance…” (Rom. 8:20-21, 24-25)
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit…” (Rom. 15:13)
“…Trust God and He will help you, make straight your ways and hope in Him; hope for good things, for lasting joy and mercy; Woe to you who have lost hope! What will you do at the visitation of the LORD?” (Sir. 2:6,9.14)
and my personal favorite Word;
“…we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we boast of our afflictions, knowing that affliction produces endurance, and endurance proven character, proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint because the love of God has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.” (Romans 5)
Ah, now we can hear the great HOPE Our Lady carries in her heart because of the work she has accomplished thus far through 31 years of visitations in the Spirit of Elijah preparing the way of the Lord in the hearts of men. In looking into the hearts of those who have said yes to her, she is able to accomplish what she has been sent to do, and by her excitement and joy the plan is set in course.
Do you think she sees that creation is being set free as it says above with her great hope?
Do you think she sees the God of Hope filling hearts with the Holy Spirit?
Or how about her children who are living and carrying the crosses with great endurance, whose hope is in the Lord, praying ardently with her for the fulfillment of the plans of God? Wouldn’t this bring her great joy in hope that what she came for is being accomplished whether we visibly see it or not?
Our Lady has absolute confidence in her Son and His work of redemption in human souls. Her heart is fixed and one with the sign of Hope in Jesus crucified. When she speaks of hope this is where she is, one with her Son cooperating with the plans for salvation.
HOPE my friends, does not disappoint as St. Paul said above. HOPE carries the living Word of God forward, and believes in it, and endures with great fortitude everything for the sake of God and the Kingdom.
Our Lady said further, “…IF you pray, little children, you are with me and you are seeking the will of my Son and are living it. Be open and live prayer and at every moment, may it be for you the savor and joy of your soul…”
Something is happening when we pray. When we pray she affirms that we are one with her. Our prayer becomes one with her, and in the prayer, she is able to direct us in spirit an understanding of the will of God, and put it to life. But we have to be open. The heart must be able to receive what Jesus desires to do in the heart.
There is a freedom that comes when we are moving under the light and the will of God. For He who has created us, leads us on the path which He knows will bring us to joy, and absolute peace to the soul, which every man desires in the heart.
Our Lady concludes by saying, “… I am with you and I intercede for all of you before my Son Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
Our Lady is with us in person, not just figuratively, but really present as if she were standing right in the room with you. This is what she means when she says, “I am with you”. When you pray you are with her in person, and she hears the prayer, she takes it into her heart, and turns and gives it to Jesus.
She may be laying the prayer at the cross, or at the altar of sacrifice in the mass, or placing it at the heaven throne. She does what she likes with the prayer and in turn is receiving for you what she knows as a Mother, what you need in your soul to work towards your conversion.
And with GREAT Trust and HOPE in the heart, God will accomplish His work in you. Be open!
