On this Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, invite Our Lady to speak these words to your heart:
My Beautiful Daughter,
I hope that my words today bring encouragement to your weary heart. I hear your thoughts, know your feelings, and see your desires. I remember what it feels like to be faced with confusion, uncertainty, and pain. There are even times when I see the dragon attempting to devour the glorious life of my Son within you.
But I need you to know that you are safe. I am here in Heaven with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and all the Angels and Saints. We are preparing a home for you.
You may feel like you are in a lonely desert right now, but I want to strengthen your heart today with my humility, obedience, purity, patience, and love. Yes, the King desires your beauty and I will show you how to let Him be the Lord of your heart.
Live your Baptism, be strengthened by your Confirmation, receive His mercy through the words of my priest in Confession, and receive Him often in the Eucharist. We have a place prepared for you and all you need to do today is stay with Jesus. He is your way, truth, and life!
Simply remain with Him and He will be your joy and peace. Then your soul will truly proclaim the greatness of the Lord!
With All My Love,
Your Heavenly Mother Mary
P.S. Don’t forget, I want to crush the head of the serpent in your life . . . and if the enemy continues to wreak havoc, I will punch the devil in the face.
Take a few minutes to write a letter back to Mary. How do you want her to help you today?
