Get ready for a real challenge Christian. It is time to sink or swim. Thankfully, we have all the means to swim! There are three parts of Our Lady's latest monthly message to the world:
Part 1: PRAY!!!
This means that for every trouble or difficulty, we are to resort to strong prayer. Why "strong?" Our Lady must know that the particular trials coming ahead for the Church are going to be faith-shaking. And the weak will fall away.
Now in the moment of distress it may be difficult to feel like reciting the Our Father. But prayer is not only reciting formulas. Prayer is connecting with God from the depths of your heart. And if the only prayer one can manage is "Jesus," then that's the best prayer. Moreover, for cases when one has possession of his wits, strong prayer means to do one's best to pray a rosary or to go to church or adoration.
Part 2: WITNESS NOW!
Now, more than ever before, Christians are called to come out of hiding, and to set things right as circumstances present themselves to each individual Christian. God demands that we not hide from the truth: We are Christian at all times. A Christian speaks the truth.
The world culture of this period of time has infused into the average Christian an embarrassment of Holiness. Why!? Why are Catholics overcome with humiliation when doing the Sign of the Cross at the restaurant before a meal?
It is time to embrace humiliation and embarrassment with joy and brotherly love. Jesus did not climb the cross in vain. He did it with the power of God's love. And he has reserved a fit portion of that humiliation for each Christian. For if "Christian" does not mean "like Christ," then disregard this message.
Part 3: JESUS IS WITH YOU
Jesus is the end. And he is the means to get there. And the means he provides is entirely sufficient, if only we trust in Him.
Every Christian is a copy of Christ. And the 21st century will force each soul to either be Him or persecute Him. And this is the truth.
So Christian, when you are under attack, hold strong to your God, Jesus Christ. And pray!
"For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels." -Mark 8:38
