Open yourselves to holy Confession

Medjugorje Monthly Message 11/25/12

“Dear children! In this time of grace, I call all of you to renew prayer. Open yourselves to Holy Confession so that each of you may accept my call with the whole heart. I am with you and I protect you from the ruin of sin, but you must open yourselves to the way of conversion and holiness, that your heart may burn out of love for God. Give Him time and He will give Himself to you and thus, in the will of God you will discover the love and the joy of living. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

At the beginning of this holy Advent season, our Lady is calling us to go to confession, so that we are open to and accepting her message with the heart. This is where we need to live the message. That is from the heart.

Our Lady wants to protect us in this time, but we are far away from her when we are in sin. Frequent confession will help keep us true to our self, keeps us in self knowledge before God, and then she is able to protect us all the more from ruin and sin, which we so easily fall into.

Take this message to heart. Pray this message before the most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar and make a full examination of conscience, from your childhood on. Purge sin from the heart, so we can receive her words and that her message will become who we are.

This world is slipping faster and faster into darkness. But the Mother of God is giving us a ray of light and hope. Do not just talk about the message, live the message with your whole heart, and then everything will be okay.

Ave Maria.

St. Faustina’s Prayer to be Merciful

Unless I wash you, you will not have inheritance with me

As we enter more deeply into the Spirit of Lent in this desert time, it is a good time to reflect with Jesus in our solitude how we treat our neighbors. Let this prayer be our daily bread to love God and neighbor. This is also a great reflection before going to the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

O Most Holy Trinity! As many times as I breathe, as many times as my heart beats, as many times as my blood pulsates through my body, so many thousand times do I want to glorify your mercy.

I want to be completely transformed into your mercy and to be Your living reflection O Lord. May the greatest of all divine attributes, that of your unfathomable mercy pass through my heart and soul to my neighbor.

Help me O Lord that my eyes may be merciful, so that I may never suspect or judge from appearances, but look for what is beautiful in my neighbors souls and come to their rescue.

Help me O Lord that my ears may be merciful, so that I may give heed to my neighbors needs and not be indifferent to their pains and moanings.

Help me O Lord that my tongue may be merciful so that I should never speak negatively of my neighbor, but have a word of comfort and forgiveness for all.

Help me O Lord that my hands may be merciful and filled with good deeds, so that I may do only good to my neighbors and take upon my self the more difficult and toilsome tasks.

Help me O Lord that my feet may be merciful, so that I may hurry to assist my neighbor, overcoming my own fatigue and weariness. My true rest is in the service of my neighbor.

Help me O Lord that my heart may be merciful so that I myself may feel all the sufferings of my neighbor. I will refuse my heart to no one. I will be sincere even with those who will abuse my kindness. And I will lock myself up in the most merciful Heart of Jesus. I will bear my own suffering in silence. May your mercy O Lord rest upon me.

You yourself command me to exercise the three degrees of mercy. The first; the act of mercy of whatever kind. The second; the word of mercy – if I cannot carry our a work of mercy, I will assist by my words. The third; prayer – if I cannot show mercy by deeds or words, I can always do so by prayer. My prayer reaches out even there where I cannot reach out physically. O my Jesus, transform me into yourself, for you can do all things.
