Let's take time today to ask Jesus, "How do you know me?" He wants us to know how much He knows us. It will liberate and heal us to be known by Jesus!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

"Dear children! You are not aware of the graces that you are living at this time in which the Most High is giving you signs for you to open and convert. Return to God and to prayer, and may prayer begin to reign in your hearts, families and communities, so that the Holy Spirit may lead and inspire you to every day be more open to God's will and to His plan for each of you. I am with you and with the saints and angels intercede for you. Thank you for having responded to my call." (July 25, 2014)
"Dear children! Also today I am praying to the Holy Spirit to fill your hearts with a strong faith. Prayer and faith will fill your heart with love and joy and you will be a sign for those who are far from God. Little children, encourage each other to prayer with the heart, so that prayer may fulfill your life; and each day, you, little children, will be, above all, witnesses of serving God in adoration and of your neighbor in need. I am with you and intercede for all of you. Thank you for having responded to my call." (September 25, 2015)

"Dear children, I am continuously among you because, with my endless love, I desire to show you the door of Heaven. I desire to tell you how it is opened: through goodness, mercy, love and peace - through my Son. Therefore, my children, do not waste time on vanities. Only knowledge of the love of my Son can save you. Through that salvific love and the Holy Spirit He chose me and I, together with Him, am choosing you to be apostles of His love and will. My children, great is the responsibility upon you. I desire that by your example you help sinners regain their sight, enrich their poor souls and bring them back into my embrace. Therefore, pray, pray, fast and confess regularly. If receiving my Son in the Eucharist is the center of your life then do not be afraid, you can do everything. I am with you. Every day I pray for the shepherds and I expect the same of you. Because, my children, without their guidance and strengthening through their blessing, you cannot do it. Thank you." (June 02, 2012)
"Dear children! Listen, because I wish to speak to you and to invite you to have more faith and trust in God, who loves you immeasurably. Little children, you do not know how to live in the grace of God, that is why I call you all anew, to carry the word of God in your heart and in thoughts. Little children, place the Sacred Scripture in a visible place in your family, and read and live it. Teach your children, because if you are not an example to them, children depart into godlessness. Reflect and pray and then God will be born in your heart and your heart will be joyous. Thank you for having for responded to my call." (August 25, 1996)
"Dear children! Also today I call you to be carriers of the Gospel in your families. Do not forget, little children, to read Sacred Scripture. Put it in a visible place and witness with your life that you believe and live the Word of God. I am close to you with my love and intercede before my Son for each of you. Thank you for having responded to my call." (January 25, 2006)
"Dear children, In this restless time, anew I am calling you to set out after my Son - to follow Him. I know of the pain, suffering and difficulties, but in my Son you will find rest; in Him you will find peace and salvation. My children, do not forget that my Son redeemed you by His Cross and enabled you, anew, to be children of God; to be able to, anew, call the Heavenly Father: "Father". To be worthy of the Father, love and forgive, because your Father is love and forgiveness. Pray and fast, because that is the way to your purification, it is the way of coming to know and becoming cognizant of the Heavenly Father. When you become cognizant of the Father, you will comprehend that He is all you need. I, as a mother, desire my children to be in a community of one single people where the Word of God is listened to and carried out.* Therefore, my children, set out after my Son. Be one with Him. Be God's children. Love your shepherds as my Son loved them when He called them to serve you. Thank you."
*Our Lady said this resolutely and with emphasis. (June 02, 2013)
"Dear children, I love you all. All of you, all of my children, all of you are in my heart. All of you have my motherly love, and I desire to lead all of you to come to know God's joy. This is why I am calling you. I need humble apostles who, with an open heart, will accept the Word of God and help others to comprehend the meaning of their life alongside God's word. To be able to do this my children, through prayer and fasting, you must learn to listen with the heart and to learn to keep submitting yourselves. You must learn to keep rejecting everything that distances you from God's word and to yearn only for that which draws you closer to it. Do not be afraid. I am here. You are not alone. I am imploring the Holy Spirit to renew and strengthen you. I am imploring the Holy Spirit that, as you help others, you too may be healed. I am imploring Him that, through Him, you may be God's children and my apostles." (September 02, 2013)
Thank God for the Church Ladies!!!

Dear Family of Mary!
"Dear children; I am calling you and am coming among you because I need you. I need apostles with a pure heart. I am praying, and you should also pray, that the Holy Spirit may enable and lead you, that He may illuminate you and fill you with love and humility. Pray that He may fill you with grace and mercy. Only then will you understand me, my children. Only then will you understand my pain because of those who have not come to know the love of God. Then you will be able to help me. You will be my light-bearers of God's love. You will illuminate the way for those who have been given eyes but do not want to see. I desire for all of my children to see my Son. I desire for all of my children to experience His Kingdom. Again I call you and implore you to pray for those whom my Son has called. Thank you." (October 02, 2012)
Today's Gospel is Luke 8:1-3. It is very short, and mentions those who accompanied Jesus on his travels:
"Jesus journeyed from one town and village to another, preaching and proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom of God. Accompanying him were the Twelve and some women who and been cured of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out, Joanna, the wife of Herod's steward Chuza, Susanna, and many others who provided for them out of their resources."
I have always marveled at these women who had the courage to just pick up and follow Jesus wherever He went, serving Him and paying for His needs out of their own pockets. They must have been very brave to do that. Or maybe they were just so filled with gratitude like the woman who washed Jesus' feet in yesterday's Gospel that it was the most natural thing to do.
They remind me of the women in Regina's testimony who encountered her at the church on that big day when she had such a conversion experience:
The next day was our second to last day in Medjugorje. I was sitting outside church before English Mass in the shade of a tree on my own, full of anger and pride, when six ladies from London came up and ask me if they could share the shade with me. They thought I was younger than I was, and they were saying, "Aren't you very good to be in Medjugorje so young. It is wonderful you are here." But I snapped at them, "I am not that young and I am only here to keep my mother happy." They asked me my name, and I told them my name." They said, "Regina, we are going to our group Mass and we will offer you up in the Mass." So I very sarcastically thanked them, and laughed, and off they went.
Little did Regina know that their intercession probably helped to win the graces she needed to meet the Heavenly Father during her group Mass. But then Regina encounters them again:
And I had no intention of going to confession, I was still crying. So I stood at the back of the queue, and even better, they were all French. And so I'll stay quiet and I'll stay here and make sure the coast is clear.... And just as I was about to turn to leave I could hear this big shout of "Alleluia! Praise the Lord!" And to my horror it was those six ladies who I had met just before Mass, returning from their Mass. And they saw me standing at the end of the queue for confession with tears flowing down my face. And so they came to me and said, "Regina, these people are French. Do you speak French?" And I said, "No". But every time I tried to open my mouth to speak to explain I couldn't because the tears would come again. So they said, "Hold on to her. We'll find her a priest." And in the distance there was a man sitting on a bench reading a book. And one of the women approached him. And next she shouted, "Alleluia!" again. She found a priest. And I was brought to confession with two ladies on this arm, and two ladies on this arm, and I was trying to dig my heals in, and I was trying to say 'I don't want to go' but they didn't know, they didn't realize, because I couldn't speak. And they left me on the bench with the priest.
Not only did they intercede for Regina, who was blessed beyond telling during her Mass, but they also were used by the Lord to trundle Regina off to confession, whether she liked it or not!! Of course this was Regina's conversion confession with Fr. Devine. What a precious and grace-filled moment that was for her.
These ladies are heroes!!! They helped the Lord in His plan to completely renew Regina in His grace. I wish I was that kind of Alleluia lady! The world needs many more of them. They do accompany Jesus, even today, seeing to His needs and supporting His work. The also accompany Our Lady in her work to save souls!
God bless all the Church Ladies, and the Church men and all of God's little ones who provide for Jesus' needs from their own resources, who help the Gospa in her plans!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
