Little children, praised be Jesus!
Little ones, always focus on God and remain faithful. Those who trust in God are blessed indeed! Salvation is theirs. At the proper day and time, those who call for His dwelling in them will be answered. Salvation is here!
Do not argue, little ones, over trivial things; for there is so much glory to give to God. Look at the overall picture, and you will see that where Love dwells, there in your heart is your treasure. God should be the center of everything you do.
Return to God, little ones. Turn away from sin, and remain faithful to the Gospel. So important is this message for all my children of all ages, of all races and of all creeds. God is the God of Abraham. You are all children of God. Make no mistake about it, that to meet your Creator face to face you must be pure, humble and childlike in spirit. Trust in God!
I am here with you because He has allowed me to be here. Receive all the graces that are yours to be had. Be filled with Joy! Remember, I am with you, never to leave you. I am here to stay, and I am not leaving you!
Peace to you. Turn away from sin, and remain faithful to the Gospel. Blessings, little ones! Thank you for responding to my call.
Reflection by Fr. John B. Wang
Our Blessed Mother directs our hearts to the Lenten call:
"Repent and believe in the Gospel." (Mark 1:15)
This call is for all humanity, for people of any creed and every nationality.
Yes, God must be the center of our lives.
Focus on Him and avoid inconsequential trivialities.
Again, our Holy Mother reiterates the importance of the virtue of innocence,
reminding us that only the pure, humble and childlike in spirit can see God.
The Virgin Mary indicates, again, that She comes to Emmitsburg at the command of the Lord.
She will never leave; She cannot leave.
So, receive God's graces and be filled with joy, peace and gratitude!
