On the Love that God Bestows On Me Through the Presence of Our Blessed Mother
Our Lady of Medjugorje’s most recent Prophecy included this line:
Pray, little children, in solitude, to the Holy Spirit to strengthen you in faith and trust in God, that you may be worthy witnesses of the love which God bestows upon you through my presence. (our blessed Mother)
So I thought that I would share my testimony about that.
The first way that God bestows His Love on me through our blessed Mother’s presence is that, during the Christmas Season, she brings to us the Child Jesus, Who is Love Himself (cf. I John 4:8).
Our Lady became pregnant by the Holy Spirit. For this reason, she is both the virgin Mother of God and the spouse of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is God. And God is Love (cf. I John 4:8). And where our blessed Mother is present, her divine Spouse, Love Himself, is present. That is the second way.
Our Lady is the Queen of Prophets. She is also the Queen of Angels, some of whom are prophets. Prophets are people or angels to whom God directly gives holy Prophecies, also known as The Word. Holy Church teaches that God is present in His Word (cf. Catechism 1088). And Jesus referred to Himself as The Word of God (cf. Apoc. 19:13). So our blessed Mother brings us the Word, Who is God. And again, God is Love. That’s the third way.
In whatever ways that our blessed Mother facilitates the Presence of any Person of the blessed Trinity in our lives, she facilitates the presence of Love in our lives. This is a Gift to us—a bestowal of divine Love.
A wonderful thing about the Love that God bestows on me through the presence of our blessed Mother is that no government can control Him. No government can imprison or stifle the Love of God. No shutdown can shut Him down. And the Gates of Hell can touch Him only if He permits.
