Jesus exclaimed, “I bless you Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to mere children. Yes, Father, for that is what it pleased you to do. Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, just as no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.” Matthew 11 : 25-27
Dear children! Today I am with you in a special way, holding little Jesus in my lap and I invite you, little children, to open yourselves to his call. He calls you to joy. Little children, joyfully live the messages of the Gospel, which I am repeating in the time since I am with you. Little children, I am your Mother and I desire to reveal to you the God of love and the God of peace. I do not desire for your life to be in sadness but that it be realised in joy for eternity, according to the Gospel. Only in this way will your life have meaning. Thank you for having responded to my call. Medjugorje message, December 25, 1996
• When God gives us the grace to recognise him as the God of love and of peace, then all problems in life will be resolved. When we have once realised that God really loves us unconditionally, then our hearts will really react with joy and respond with joy to this love. As long as this does not happen then we will always be burdened, and remain burdened about praying, fasting and attending Holy Mass.
Since August 2, 1987, Mary, has been praying on the 2nd of every month for non-believers, for those who have yet to discover the love of God. It is so very important for our entire lives to discover the loving God. For when we do discover the love of God, we change our lives and become, out of this love, able to love ourselves and all others. Then hate and all other negative feelings will have no room left to influence our hearts. When we meet the God of love, then joy will be in our hearts and thereby peace will come about.
A heart that has love and joy in it is one that lives in peace. Without being loved we cannot be joyful, and without being loved we can also not have peace. And precisely this is always a great problem. If we do not have the peace that comes for God, then we must again seek it here on earth and when that happens it again brings people onto wrong paths as well as to wrong methods that are unable to give peace.
