Dear Friends, In her annual message to Mirjana, the Queen of Peace earnestly urges us to pray for the strength of faith. It is thanks to this inner strength, united to a boundless trust in God’s love, that Our Mother was able to be present during the days of her Son’s Passion. Sustaining him with her love and courage, up to the moment of his supreme sacrifice, she remained at the foot of the Cross, gathering to her heart his every word and every drop of his blood. With her heroic faith, which never waivered and which also sustained the new-born Church, Mary cooperated with the work of redemption, becoming martyred with her crucified Son when a sword pierced his soul. At this time of via Crucis for the Church as well as humanity, in this world that rails against and tramples upon the Cross, Our Lady urges us not to fear and to strengthen our faltering faith, trusting in our heavenly Father’s love. “All those who have the strength of faith are stronger. … That is the strength which sustains in pain and suffering.” We know that these words are true because without the strength of faith we will be besieged by discouragement and despair. Our Lady knows that this is the moment of truth when we all have our faith tested. “My children, your battle is difficult. It will be even more difficult but follow my example.” Our fearless Mother walks the path to Calvary with us, sustaining us, encouraging us, and embracing our souls with her maternal love.
Yours truly, Fr. Livio
