Our Lady's Medjugorje message of October 25, 2014

Dear children! Pray in this time of grace and seek the intercession of all the saints who are already in the light. From day to day may they be an example and encouragement to you on the way of your conversion. Little children, be aware that your life is short and passing. Therefore, yearn for eternity and keep preparing your hearts in prayer. I am with you and intercede before my Son for each of you, especially for those who have consecrated themselves to me and to my Son.   Thank you for having responded to my call.

A Little Reflection

St. Thomas Aquinas said, "In all things, look to the end." The "end" for Catholic Christians is eternity where the saints and angels dwell in perpetual adoration of the triune Godhead.

 The lives of many saints tell us that it was by reading the lives of saints that their own conversion was brought about.  We need all the encouragement and example available in order to grow in holiness and live the kind of life that will gain us eternal happiness and also will be a witness to those we interact with.

  Our Lady shows us that by constant prayer we can be prepared for that moment when we are called to give an accounting of our lives. Fidelity and constancy will go a long way to the "end" we yearn for, eternity itself. Mary, our Mother, thank you for interceding for us.
