Medjugorje message: “…Do not forget that you are all important in this great plan, which God leads through Medjugorje…” -June 25, 2007

DSC03142Sometimes when I read big messages from Mary like the one above, I feel about as small and naked as my son Christian in this picture, when he was age three.

While each one of us is “all important” in God’s plan that would have us take seriously Mary’s messages, live them, and thus spread the Gospel of love, we may not feel so important.  We may simply feel little and insignificant. Sometimes we might even wonder if our life is really making a difference–wonder if we really are a key player in changing the world. Yet Mary doesn’t lie.

I guess, in the end, it really doesn’t matter how small and insignificant we feel. It’s probably better that we feel little and naked rather than clothed with pride and importance. But knowing that Mary considers us “all important” means that in our littleless, she’s calling us to great holiness. You, my dear friend in Christ, have been personally chosen for this. So have I.  And living her messages will help us get there.

As Our Lady has said:
