Second Week of Lent: Monday

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Be compassionate as your Father is compassionate. Do not judge, and you will not be judged yourselves; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned yourselves; grant pardon and you will be pardoned. Give, and there will be gifts for you: a full measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be poured into your lap; because the amount you measure out is the amount you will be given back.”
Luke 6 : 36-38

The Good Shepherd is judged
and condemned to death.
Dear children; Also today my motherly heart calls you to prayer, to your personal relationship with God the Father, to the joy of prayer in him. God the Father is not far away from you and he is not unknown to you. He revealed himself to you through my Son and gave you Life that is my Son. Therefore, my children, do not give in temptations that want to separate you from God the Father. Pray! Do not attempt to have families and societies without him. Pray! Pray that your hearts may be flooded with the goodness which comes only from my Son, who is sincere goodness. Only hearts filled with goodness can comprehend and accept God the Father. I will continue to lead you. In a special way I implore you not to judge your shepherds. My children, are you forgetting that God the Father called them? Pray! Thank you.”

Whenever it is suggested to the visionary Mirjana that she is privileged to be able to see Our Lady she responds in this way: “If anyone is privileged then it is our priests. They do not need your judgment and criticism but prayers and love. Do not lose confidence in the priest because the Madonna says that when a priest blesses you, it is her Son Jesus blessing you.”
