A Letter from Our Lady

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.

Simply remain with Him and He will be your joy and peace. Then your soul will truly proclaim the greatness of the Lord! Click To Tweet

    I loved this. But what really brought me the most joy and laughter was Mary punching the devil in his face! Love that!

    I’ve been meaning to write this ever since I read this reflection last month, but this was absolutely beautiful and entirely what I needed to read. After reading this and meditating on it a bit, I noticed that day that I was able to let go, trust Mary, and feel safe in her arms. Not just something I knew intellectually, but something I was able to feel, for the first time. And it has continued, I am happy to write. I have received both good and bad news and am going through some personal issues, but for once, deep down, there is peace and trust, and I am not in a panic. Thank you for your beautiful, healing words!
