If I remember correctly, tomorrow we start our MDM Novena to the Infant Jesus. Reading the messages given by Our Blessed Mother in Medjugorje, it struck me that every Dec 25th, during her monthly message, Mama Mary appears carrying the infant Jesus in her arms! Every Christmas she brings her Son, the newborn King of Peace, to her children. Here is one such message:
December 25, 2017 "Dear children! Today I am bringing to you my Son Jesus for Him to give you His peace and blessing. I am calling all of you, little children, to live and witness the graces and the gifts which you have received. Do not be afraid. Pray for the Holy Spirit to give you the strength to be joyful witnesses and people of peace and hope. Thank you for having responded to my call."
This Advent I have been praying to Our Lady, asking her to bring little baby Jesus to me this Christmas, for Him to be born in my heart and my home. My prayer was reinforced today when I came across this video today that Sister Emmanuel Maillard, a French nun living in Medjugorje, made last Christmas, titled "the Little Child who conquers evil" which is all about how baby Jesus can be born in our lives. It's in English with a Spanish translator, but I found it was definitely worth the watch.
May the Divine Infant Jesus visit you and your family this Christmas, bringing His love, joy and peace.
God bless you! 🙏
