These are the words of the Blessed Mother on this day:
Children of God the Father, the Almighty, contemplate your suffering when your children disobey you to pursue their own inclinations which lead them to offend against God, yourselves and themselves. You suffer more when they deny you and turn to strangers to replace your teachings and your advice for life. A wise parent requires repentance of them, when approached for forgiveness.
God the Father, the Almighty requires no less!
Similarly, when the law of God the Father, the Almighty is discarded in wilful disobedience of it, the wise parent will encourage repentance before granting forgiveness.
God the Father, the Almighty requires no less.
If you are outraged by the behaviour of your children who deny you the right to request obedience of them, it is because you understand that you have not given your children the correct idea of yourself and your right to be a parent to them; they have an idea of you which does not reflect your role in their lives.
Therefore ask yourself if you have a correct idea of God the Father, the Almighty. You may say God would …. Or God would not say, think or speak nor act in this or that manner. But you would discover very soon that what you were thinking or saying could be no more than a human opinion of God.
Therefore, sit your child alongside yourself and begin by teaching the child that the grandest idea by far, ever entertained by the human mind is the idea of God and that such idea cannot be contemplated in its entirety by any human mind. However, we can arrive at comprehending the immense quantity of God the Father, the Almighty when we consider the value of the gifts He conferred to us.
For example we have a heart because He gave it to us. We have a body, an intellect and a soul because He gave them to us. We can see and hear and think because He made it possible. He gave us the earth to live on and the air to breathe and the waters of the sea for us to enjoy a life of plenty. Give to yourself and your child the occasion to marvel with awe at the thought of God the Father, the Almighty.
Thus your child will grow to abandon the idea that God is or is not someone who can be contained in the restrictions of a wilful child mind; someone who will always forgive our offences even though no repentance is evident and no prayer for forgiveness is forthcoming.
Remember that what applies to your child applies to yourself as well.
She smiles and leaves.
