Recognising prophets…

As they came down from the mountain the disciples put this question to Jesus, “Why do the scribes say that Elijah has to come first? “True,” he replied; “Elijah is to come to see that everything is once more as it should be; however, I tell you that Elijah has come already and they did not recognise him, but treated him as they pleased; and the Son of Man will suffer similarly at their hands.” The disciples understood that he had been speaking about John the Baptist. Matthew 17 : 10-13

• Our Lady, Queen of Prophets, has also come among us to see “that everything is once more as it should be.” Her message from Medjugorje is the Baptist’s message, the message of the prophet Isaiah, the message of all true servants of God: “Prepare a way for the Lord, make his paths straight.”

In this time of joyful expectation we are called to prepare our hearts for the coming of the Lord, to repent of our sins, to reconcile with God and each other. Our Lady says:

prepare yourselves for Christmas… prepare your hearts for these days when the Lord particularly desires to purify you from all the sins of your past… prepare for the coming of Jesus… prepare your hearts in a special way… through Holy Confession prepare your soul so that little Jesus can be born anew in your heart… prepare yourselves with joy…
