• Last week the Church celebrated the feasts of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary – two hearts enjoined, Mother and Son, and each other’s treasure. The wonderful truth is that Jesus and Mary are our treasure also, and we theirs.
The Two Hearts of Jesus and Mary provide all the riches we will ever need, and this is why Jesus also tells us that we should never worry about our life, what we are to eat, nor about our body and how we are to clothe it. He says that we should set our hearts on the Father’s kingdom first, then all our needs be met, and more.
And we are invited to share this providential source, this treasure, with others – all that we are provided, all that we are. In this way we also become a treasure to each other.
Peace is a treasure we all seek: peace in our hearts, in our families and in our communities. Our Lady considers peace as one of the most important treasures to have in our heart but she says that to receive this peace then we must pray for it and when we are given the peace that only God can give we in turn should give witness to this treasure.
Peace in our hearts… what a wonderful treasure to be able to ask for and receive!
Dear children! Today I call you all to pray for peace and to witness it in your families so that peace may become the highest treasure on this peaceless earth. I am your Queen of Peace and your mother. I desire to lead you on the way of peace, which comes only from God. Therefore, pray, pray, pray. Thank you for having responded to my call. April 25, 2009
For the Lord has chosen Zion;
he has desired it for his dwelling:
“This is my resting-place for ever,
here I have chosen to live.”
