Rivers of living water
Lent, spring - Our hearts and minds turn to what is coming - Easter and buds on the trees, crocuses and all the beautiful spring flowers that grace the landscape. In this message, Our Lady so beautifully reminds us that nature is getting ready to burst forth in a palette of colors. But, nature depends on God, the master artist, for its growth. So, we, too, in this special time of reflection and grace, must depend on God's grace to transform and mould us more in His image and likeness.
Only He can do it. We are powerless. We can try and try, but of ourselves, we fail. With our eyes and minds focused on the Lord, His passion, death and ultimate resurrection, we have a chance of growing in grace and rooting out the sin in our lives.
In this time of grace, when nature also prepares to give the most beautiful colors of the year, I call you, little children, to open your hearts to God the Creator for Him to transform and mould you in His image, so that all the good which has fallen asleep in your hearts may awaken to a new life and a longing towards eternity. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
