Dear Family of Mary!
April 25, 2016

"Dear children! My Immaculate Heart bleeds as I look at you in sin and sinful habits. I am calling you: return to God and to prayer that it may be good for you on earth. God is calling you through me for your hearts to be hope and joy for all those who are far away. May my call be for you a balm for the soul and heart so that you may glorify God, the Creator, who loves you and is calling you to eternity. Little children, life is short; you, make good use of this time and do what is good. Thank you for having responded to my call."
Our Lady wants to help us be free of sin.  She is bringing to us a call from God, a call to leave sin behind and choose the good.  But we are habitual sinners.  With every fall into sin we build a habit, a pathway in our heart towards that sin.  How can we ever get out of the rut we are in?  It seems impossible.

But our Mother has an answer to this terrible problem of habitual sin.  "May my call be for you a balm for the soul and heart..."  Our Lady's call is the answer.  She is calling us to follow her, and in following her we will find the way out of our rut and find the way into holiness.  Her call is a healing balm for our poor, sinful hearts.  Her loving words and wise counsel are like medicine for our sick souls.  Her call opens up hope, and shows us a new way to life. 

Our Lady is the answer to our sinful souls.  She is with us to call us into freedom and newness of life. 

Jelena Vasilj wrote a beautiful consecration to Our Lady in which she articulates this very call, this very balm. Let us pray with the heart to answer the call of Our Lady!

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
(Given by Our Lady to Jelena Vasilj, 11/28/1983)

O Immaculate Heart of Mary, overflowing
with goodness, Show us your love for us.
May the flame of your heart, Oh Mary,
Descend upon all peoples.
We love you immensely.
Impress in our hearts a true love.
May our hearts yearn for you.
Oh Mary, sweet and humble of heart,
Remember us when we sin.
You know that all mankind are sinners.
Through your most holy and maternal heart,
Cure us from every spiritual illness.
Make us capable of looking at the beauty of your maternal heart,
And that, thus, we may be converted
to the flame of your heart. Amen

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
