I let down my net from heaven. This brings every blessing to man. Then, I draw my net upwards, lifting man above himself and offering to him a new way of life. These are the two blessings that always flow from my heart.
A Mother’s Role
As a mother, I see all the needs of my children and I provide for them. What mother would see her children hungry and not give them food; see them crying and not try to console them? This is my promise, “Anyone who comes to me, for them I will make life more gentle”. That is my motherly role, to always place helps along the way. So, I say to my children, “Cry out to me. It will not be in vain. Seek me and you will see that I am always at your side”.
My heavenly net has a second, more important gift. It lifts up my children who are often overcome by the world. It lifts them above those forces that would lower them. It lifts them above their passions that entangle them. It lifts them above the hard heartedness that so mars human relationships. It lifts them above earthly goals that limit their understanding.
Come, O reader, I would lift you up, not yet into the heavenly realm (for that must wait until after death). Right now, I can lift you above yourself, above your selfish goals and your self-centered lifestyle. I can have you breathe a heavenly air and experience a freedom from all the compulsions that constantly mar your seeking true goals.
Come, I offer you a new life, a new existence, a freedom that you cannot imagine, a freedom which the earth cannot give you. I will surround your heart with the greatest purity. I will rip out of you all selfishness and will place the greatest love.
I offer you a new life, one that prefigures your life in heaven. O reader, let me lift you up. This is the only way that I can save you.
Comment: Mary promises two gifts. She will take away the sting of life and she will change the person.
