November 2, 2015 message from Our Lady of Medjugorje to Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo:
“Dear children, anew I desire to speak to you about love. I have gathered you around me in the name of my Son according to His will. I desire that your faith be firm, flowing forth from love. Because, those of my children who understand the love of my Son and follow it, live in love and hope. They have come to know the love of God.
Therefore, my children, pray, pray so as to be able to love all the more and to do works of love. Because, faith alone without love and works of love is not what I am asking of you: my children, this is an illusion of faith. It is a boasting of self. My Son seeks faith and works, love and goodness.
I am praying, and I am also asking you to pray, and to live love; because I desire that my Son, when He looks at the hearts of all of my children, can see love and goodness in them and not hatred and indifference.
My children, apostles of my love, do not lose hope, do not lose strength. You can do this. I am encouraging and blessing you. Because all that is of this world, which many of my children, unfortunately, put in the first place, will disappear; and only love and works of love will remain and open the door of the Kingdom of Heaven. I will wait for you at this door. At this door, I desire to welcome and embrace all of my children. Thank you!”
Wow! Our Lady’s latest message is truly beautiful (as are all her messages) and full of encouragement. It is a message really worth meditating over today, and in fact every day.
Today is All Soul’s Day. Let us pray for our dearly departed that their souls may be quickly united with the Holy Trinity in heaven. Praying for the souls in Purgatory is a great act of love and mercy. By remembering them we gain new intercessors, and the mercy we show will be given back to us.
Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.
