3rd day of Lent

They will look on the one whom they have pierced.

Dear children! I invite you to decide again to love God above all else. In this time when due to the spirit of consumerism one forgets what it means to love and to cherish true values, I invite you again, little children, to put God in the first place in your life. Do not let satan attract you through material things but, little children, decide for God who is freedom and love. Choose life and not death of the soul, little children, and in this time when you meditate upon the suffering and death of Jesus I invite you to decide for life which blossomed through the Resurrection, and that your life may be renewed today through conversion that shall lead you to eternal life. Thank you for having responded to my call. March 25, 1996

Mary touches upon a great problem in the world, and at the same time offers us a solution to it. The spirit of consumerism only knows the material, only knows money and enjoyment; and through this, the spirit of consumerism can also lead to destruction. It really is that through the materialistic spirit we can no longer love and in truth have lost all our values. It already suffices to think about how many people destroy their lives through drugs and alcohol, how many people kill the unborn life, how many people no longer even in the slightest way give value to truth, love, justice and life, but only their money, their success, that which they think and that which they need. Such a situation is really a blindness. When we have forgotten or no longer know what it means to love, when we no longer recognise the true values, then it is said that we are blind. (Fr Slavko Barbaric OFM)

Lent in Action… GIVE THANKS

Dear children, learn to give thanks in little things and then you will be able to give thanks also for the big things. October 13, 1985

Be happy at all times; pray constantly, and for all things give thanks to God, because this is what God expects you to do in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5 : 17-18

I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks.
William Shakespeare
