I feel your love. I hear your prayers and I bring them to my Son ” – The touching words of Our Lady in the first message of the year from Medjugorje.
Thus, this new decade opens from Medjugorje. An invitation to merciful, conscious love for others, the only way that leads to Christ
Medjugorje: commentary on the message of January 2, 2020
Our Lady of Medjugorje still gives us the joy of commenting on her new message: the first of 2020. They are extraordinary words, rich in meaning and that deeply touch our heart and our sensitivity.
As always, the Virgin begins with dear children, words which she said warm up “Dear children, I know I am present in your lives and in your hearts”. This maternal presence makes itself felt and reminds us of the role of Mary; that of our lawyer, in fact she herself affirms: “ I hear your prayers and I bring them to my Son”. As at the wedding at Cana, Mary intervenes every day and invites Jesus to listen to our supplications. this is how the role of Our Lady to be Christopher (bearer of Christ and to Christ) can be seen.
Mary’s protective coat is for everyone
She, from Medjugorje, wants to welcome everyone as children, even the most distant from God, she wants to put us all under the powerful protection of her mantle . Mary invites us to help her in the work of bringing all her scattered children closer to God, that is why she calls us Apostles of her love. “ I wish to gather all my children around me, under my maternal mantle. This is why I call you apostles of my love and I ask you to help me ”.
Jesus is the true light of the world and Mary reminds us that He, the Christ wishes our continuous improvement in the journey of faith, living His merciful love made of prayers and sacrifice but above all of mercy towards our brothers. “ My children, give my Son love of neighbor, give words of consolation, compassion and sayings of goodness to neighbor”.
Medjugorje: love for others, this matters
What matters most is love of neighbor made of words of consolation and concrete gestures, because everything we do for them Jesus welcomes him as a personal gift. Mary supports us and encourages us to stand beside her with her maternal love which like a light illuminates our journey in search of eternal peace and happiness. “ Everything you give to your neighbor, apostles of my love, my Son welcomes him as a gift and I am with you, because my Son wants my love, as a beam of light, to revive souls to help you in the search for peace and of eternal happiness “Love each other, be united in my Son
We must therefore have no fear of calling God the Father, we are His children but we must demonstrate it in practice , opening our heart to his love and living as true children of light. “ For this, my children, love each other, be united in my Son, be children of the Lord, all together with open and pure hearts pronounce the Our Father and do not be afraid”.
Our Lady concludes her message with the words “do not be afraid thank you”.
