Jacob was the father of Joseph the husband of Mary; of her was born Jesus who is called the Christ. Matthew 1 : 1-17

God has a perfect plan for our lives. (Archbishop Vincent Nichols)

Dear children! Behold, also today I want to call you to start living a new life as of today. Dear children, I want you to comprehend that God has chosen each one of you, in order to use you in His great plan for the salvation of mankind. You are not able to comprehend how great your role is in God’s design. Therefore, dear children, pray so that in prayer you may be able to comprehend what God’s plan is in your regard. I am with you in order that you may be able to bring it about in all its fullness. Thank you for having responded to my call. January 25, 1987

• How wonderful it is to be told by our Blessed Mother that each one of us, no matter what our state or condition, is of value to God, even the ‘non-believers’. When others are quick to judge the world and its people we discover that our Blessed Mother is making no judgement about any of her children. Instead we are called to fulfill the role God has planned for us. By doing just that we co-operate in his saving plan for mankind. Our “yes”, it seems, is of key importance if we are to truly understand the gratitude of Our Lady when she says “thank you for responding to my call”.

Whatever your plan, the door is open for you.
