Message of September 20, 1985 (Friday) “Dear children! Today I invite you to live in humility all the messages which I am giving you. Do not become arrogant living the messages and saying ‘I am living the messages’. If you shall bear and live the messages in your heart, everyone will feel it so that words, which serve those who do not obey, will not be necessary. For you, dear children, it is necessary to live and witness by your lives. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
“Anyone who lifts himself up will be humbled, and anyone who humbles himself will be lifted up.” The perfect model is Jesus himself, who “though in the form of God emptied himself… walked the path of obedience all the way to death… For this reason God raised him to the highest place” (Phil 2:7-9).
Our dear Blessed Mother has amazing confidence in us. However, we must become more like her. Humility, faith, hope, unconditional love, and trust in the will of God are those beautiful qualities of Our Lady that we must emulate. We need to acquire that inner strength that allows us to reject sin and all its evil consequences. We have been challenged to be, “pure and pleasing, so that love and warmth may flow through you into every heart that is far from His love.” Being critical and judgmental will never work; but embracing the unconditional love of God and Our Lady while sharing that love with others can break open the hardest of hearts. May we become very passionate about this work of Our Lady. Through the grace of God may we be successful in bringing souls to Jesus. – Fr Ed Chalmers,(reflection on Message of Nov 25, 2009)
