Reflection On Message Of Our Lady

583 words - 3 pages


God our Father is our source, giver of life and power. He sent down his only begotten son Jesus Christ to redeem our sins. Surely, it’s painful for a mother and father to sacrifice their son for other people. But how come that we, His people didn’t notice this sacrifice and that we don’t pay any attention to the message of Our Lady. In all simplicity Mary at La Salette calls the two children to come near. Her words echo her Son’s invitation to come to him that we may find rest from our burdens and refreshment for our spirits. I’ve learned that we should feel welcomed and loved and that we should come nearer to God who desires only good for us. She reminded us that God continues to break into our ...view middle of the document...

Today two-thirds of the world suffers or dies from hunger. Human rights are ignored across the face of the earth and injustice lies in our very doorstep. I’ve learned that we shouldn’t abuse what He have given us and that we should give worth and contentment to what we have. Mary said: “if my people are converted, rocks and stones will turn into heaps of wheat. I’ve learned that Mary’s apparition on the barren slope of La Salette has unleashed a stream of life-giving water, bearing the promise of refreshment and renewal. Heeding Mary’s call to conversion makes our own lives rich and fruitful. Mary said: “Do you say your prayers well, my children? You should say them well, at night and in the morning... People go to mass just to make fun of religion. In lent they go to the butcher shops like dogs.” The virgin at La Salette questions us on the equality of those gestures of faith which link us to God and serve as the source of our ongoing conversion. Each day, we are invited to express in prayer our free and constant dialogue with God. I’ve learned that we should atleast say our prayers in the morning and at night but it’s better if mo talk to God everytime. Mary said: “Well, my children, you will make this known to all my people.” As mary challenges and encourages us to follow her Son, she reminds us of our mission. We are to bring the whole world the Good news of Jesus Christ. Marked by his Spirit and consecrated in truth and love, the followers of Jesus work together to advance the kingdom of God. I’ve learned that we should make ways to spread the good news, that we are the agent of change that will prove that God is always beside us and will never leave us no matter what happens.
