The Epiphany of the Lord
Dear children of humanity,
I am a God Who is a God! A Merciful God is One Who loves His children and One Who loves life. So as your God, I created life for all to behold.
When you are young, you gird your loins, clothe yourselves, and entertain yourselves; because when you are young, you do not think of the future. All is good. There is no need to pray and no need to repent. You can have it your way, all the things that you desire. On another day you can always make up for what was lost.
Then you grow older; and as you grow older, the body becomes weaker, even beginning to decay. You become set in your ways. It becomes difficult to praise your Creator. With suffering it becomes more difficult for you to pray and to plead your cause.
I, as God your Father, mercifully waiting, gaze upon humanity. Yet another plea comes in. It seems you want more, more of something else that you have not received. But there are few songs of praise for what you have gained.
Truly there is a lack of wisdom and a lack of humility on your part for not being able to see with the eyes of the heart the gift that has been handed to you. Here you have the treasure of my Son’s Mother who pleads your cause on your behalf, determined that all might be brought safely and freely to eternal rest. Look to her and she will plead your cause, because in her humility, she knows the gift of Life. O’ how fortunate you are, children of humanity, to have been given such a treasure who so often is taken for granted, overlooked, and dismissed with indifference and ingratitude. How fortunate you are for her “fiat”!
Yet, as a Merciful Father, I listen and I will intervene. For what father would hand his children a snake or poison them or do them harm? A father who loves is a father who gives; and I am a Father Who is waiting and will give, just as in My Son’s parable of the prodigal son who was redeemed through grace.
I wait; I watch; I listen; and My Judgment is a judgment of Justice. You, children of humanity, know not the day, the hour nor the time, not the place nor the event. Perhaps then, it is time for you to amend your lives and to be enlightened, as if today was your last. Perhaps, it is time for you to love, as if today was your last opportunity to love; and perhaps it is time for you to be grateful, as if today was your last chance to give praise and thanksgiving to Me for your life.
Yes, just perhaps today!
