This blog was started on July 21st, 2015, after my Mary, Our Mother blog had mysteriously disappeared. I will post only Marian items, especially regarding Medjugorje and other Marian apparitions. Thank you for reading this blog. May it give great glory to God through the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

Dear Family of Mary!
May 2, 2007
"Dear children, today I come to you with a motherly desire that you give
me your hearts. My children, do so with complete confidence and without
fear. I will put in your hearts my Son and His mercy. Then you, my
children, with different eyes, see the world around you. You will see
your neighbor. You will feel his pain and suffering. You will not turn
your head from those who suffer... Children, do not hesitate."
This is the Jubilee Year of Mercy in
which the graces of Divine Mercy are flooding our world, so badly in
need of such graces. Our Lady's presence in Medjugorje is a great sign
of God's mercy for us in these days. She understands everything, and is
here to help us find God.
I love this message from 2007! Our Lady says she will "Put in your hearts my Son and His mercy." This is exactly what we need!!
St. Faustina wrote a prayer in her
Diary that is very helpful for opening our hearts to mercy and love. I
want to share it with you, as a response to this message and to this
year of Mercy. We are being given a tremendous opportunity to become
mercy for others.
St. Faustina's prayer to become Mercy:
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, 0 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.
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
+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 myself the more
difficult and toilsome tasks.
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, I know, 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.
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 out 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
+O my Jesus, transform me into Yourself, for you can do all things. (Diary 163)
