Why look around for answers when the answers lie within each person’s heart. Yes, the heart must be true. If the heart is true, the person can see what is in their heart? This is where, O reader, you must begin.
Look into your heart. What do you see? Do you see the basic elements of faith? Do you see a belief that God exists? That you have responsibilities to God? What are these responsibilities? Can you list them, or at least, some of them? Do you fulfill these responsibilities? Where do you fail?
Look again into your heart. What have you accomplished in life? What were your dreams and your talents? How have you fulfilled your dreams? How have you used your talents?
Look again into your own heart. Who are the important people in your life? What are your responsibilities toward them? Have you fulfilled them?
Look again into your own heart! What is sinful? What destroys you? What lowers you? What do you want, crave and seek, even if you must break God’s law to get it? What is your hidden secret? What would you not want anyone to know about you?
Look again into your heart. Do you find any hope? Do you see any stirring of your heart that says, “I will arise from here and return to my Father’s house”?
Look again into your heart! Do you find me there? Does my presence fill your heart? This is the easiest part. If you do not find me, then invite me. Use your own words. I will listen. As soon as you use my name, “Mary”, I will come. If you ask me to stay, I will stay. If you invite me to go deeper into your heart, I will go deeper.
Recapture your own heart. Get it firmly into your grasp. Then you will be free to enjoy my words.
Comment: Mary offers so much but a person who cannot control the desires of their heart, cannot profit from Mary’s help.
