Praying with Mary… Novena day nine

Paul welcomed all who came to visit him, proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching the truth about the Lord Jesus Christ with complete freedom and without hindrance from anyone. Acts 28 : 30-31

We exist to show God to men. And only there where God is seen, does life really begin. Only when we find in Christ the living God, do we know what life is… There is nothing more beautiful than being overtaken, surprised by the Gospel, by Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than knowing him and communicating to others friendship with him. Benedict XVI, April 24, 2005

Dear children! Tomorrow night pray for the Spirit of Truth! Especially, you from the parish. Because you need the Spirit of Truth to be able to convey the messages just the way they are, neither adding anything to them, nor taking anything whatsoever way from them, but just the way I said them. Pray for the Holy Spirit to inspire you with the spirit of prayer, so you will pray more. I, your Mother, tell you that you are praying little. Thank you for having responded to my call. Medjugorje message, June 9, 1984

Heavenly Father, we wish to thank you for Mary’s presence among us. We thank you for all that you have given us through her. We thank you for every word that she expresses in your name. We thank you for all the graces, for every blessing, for every inner and outer healing that you, in the name of your Son and through Mary’s intercession have given to us. We adore and praise you along with Mary who calls upon us to convert. We ask you for the grace that we decide to convert. Send us your Holy Spirit so that we can, through him, open ourselves to prayer and that he then help us to grow in prayer. Father, take our hearts of stone and cleanse them so that they may become new hearts. Free us, O Father, of everything that turns our hearts into hearts of stone. Free us from every hate, from very jealousy, from every greed, from every obsession and dependency and from every distrust and fear. Free our hearts from all wounds, from all stresses and traumas, so that our hearts may be formed according to that of your Son – humble and mild – and formed according to that of your servant, Mary, so that we may live with one another in love and peace. Amen.
Fr Slavko Barbaric
