Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”
Blessed Mother: “Dearest children, have I not counted every tear that falls from your eyes? Am I not your Mother? Who would comfort you if not your Mother? My Son has given me the special privilege of comforting those who mourn. He desired that you, my children, would receive from me the same comforts he received in his time on earth. You do not know what transpired between us in our earthly time together. Even our sorrow was an unending exchange of love and joy. My children, in your sorrow, enter into that holy exchange of love and joy. This is a tremendous grace my Son desires for you. Embrace it and have no fear. We are with you, dear children, with our love and joy. Be at peace.”
O beloved Mother, what comfort! What Joy! What grace! Thank you Jesus for this amazing gift. In the Divine Will I enter into the never-ending exchange of love and joy between you and our Mother, so that my joy may be complete, even in times of sorrow. Thank you, Jesus! Thank you Mother! I love you!
(Note: As I finished recording this message, it occurred to me that I did receive this very grace when my son died of a chronic illness in 1985, one week before his 9th birthday. At that time, I remember feeling profound sorrow, but along with it profound, holy joy. The sorrow and grief were still there, but the overriding joy was just as palpable. One year before my son died, I felt called to begin praying the rosary daily. This was undoubtedly what got me through that time of deep sorrow. Our Mother is so near! Let us continue to cling to her, dear friends. We are unimaginably blessed in the gift of our Mother. Thank you Jesus!)
