Our Lady’s message touches us in the very state of heart in which we find ourselves. It always brings hope and direction to what we need to focus on most.
Today the Mother reminds us that the Lord is risen. We, too, are witnesses to this, just as his disciples were then. We too can rejoice when we encounter him in prayer, in the contemplation of the Gospel, in the breaking of bread. The one who encounters Jesus cannot keep Him to himself.
Encountering Jesus transforms hearts. The full heaven of the saints testifies to this. Our Lady invites us all to bring the gifts of Easter – peace and joy to those who are far from prayer.
We become carriers of peace and joy through prayer, words and good deeds.
We find ourselves in the month of May, a month that is in a special way dedicated to Our Lady and her favorite prayer of Rosary. The Rosary is a prayer of peace and joy. By repeating the Hail Mary, we repeat the joyful greeting of the Angel Gabriel. Our Mary is the cause of our joy. The prayer of the Sorrowful Mysteries helps us to live our sorrows with those of Jesus, and then peace comes. The Glorious mysteries lift our gaze to heaven, where our goal is. ” Little children, pray the Rosary and meditate the mysteries of the Rosary because, in your life, you are also passing through joys and sorrows. In this way, you are transforming the mysteries into your life, because life is a mystery until you place it into God’s hands. In this way, you will have the experience of faith like Peter who met Jesus and the Holy Spirit filled his heart. Little children, you are also called to witness by living the love with which, day by day, God wraps you with my presence. Therefore, little children, be open and pray with the heart in faith.” Our Heavenly Mother told us on September 25, 2019.
Our lives can also transform the lives of others. Through us, the Lord can touch frightened hearts and repeat His Easter greeting, “Peace be with you”.
By daily meditating on the Gospel, we are engaged in the life of Jesus; by sharing the good news, we become like him.
As we are, so will those around us be. Only in this way can the Risen Lord change the dangerous events that have overtaken the world for the better. Our Lady reminds us, “Only my Son can give you true peace and joy.” We can bring peace – through prayer, thoughts, words, deeds, gestures, our behavior.
Who could teach us better if not Mary, the meek, humble, loving, joyful servant of the Lord?
O Queen of heaven, rejoice, Alleluia;
For He whom thou didst deserve to bear, Alleluia;
Is risen again as He said, Alleluia.
Pray for us to God, Alleluia.
Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, Alleluia.
Because our Lord is truly risen, Alleluia.
Let us pray:
O God, who by the Resurrection of Thy Son our Lord Jesus Christ
didst deign to give joy to the world: grant we beseech Thee, that through His Mother, the Virgin Mary, we may obtain the joys of everlasting life. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
