The Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe



Little children, praised be Jesus.

Little ones, my Son is a God of Light. He loves and blesses you. He takes your petitions. He prays with you. He is a God Who loves, and He calls you to love as He loves.

There is so much hope for today; and you, my little ones must be the hope for the new tomorrow. So many of my children are suffering. So many have risked so much in their lives. They have moved from their families. They give to other people. They even risk their own lives for other people. Both you and they must be children of hope and be enthusiastic for the reception of my Sonís Love.

You must be willing to give. You must expect not only many things, but expect also good outcomes for tomorrow. You should expect good health in your families. You should expect and hope for Peace. You should expect and hope for a new beginning, one in which humility and charity join together to form a pinnacle of holiness. For all children are called to be holy.

I love you. I know how much you give. I know how much you desire. I can only invite you to look towards my Son with hope. Then you must give to others that same hope for a new beginning through your love, your comradery, your friendship and your companionship. This is the time of preparation which has been proclaimed throughout all the ages, the time of looking forward to the coming of my Son, the Emmanuel.

Peace to you. My blessings I give to you because they come from Him. As you know, I can only point to Him; yet He still gives to you through me the blessings of Almighty God.


Reflection


Jesus, the Son of Mary, is a God of Light, Love and Hope. We, Mary's

children, must also be people of light, love and hope. In this message, our dear Mother asks us to bring hope through love and friendship. She urges us to grow in holiness through humility and charity. God is the source of all blessings, yet, we are to seek the intercession of the Mother of God to receive His blessings. Mary is the Mother of Fairest Love, Mother of Divine Hope, and Mother and Mediatrix of Grace.
