I see your falls, your weaknesses, and I love you.
I see your fears, and I love you.
I see your wanting to run away, and I love you.
I see you wanting to scream, and I love you.
I see your anger, your frustrations, and I love you.
I see the ugliness, the past, the present, and I love you.
I see every one of your efforts, and I love you and I bless you.
I see every step you take, and I love you and I help you.
I see every prayer and willingness to do the Father’s Will,
and I love you and I thank you.
I see you, the totality of you, and I love you.
Your home is in My Heart;
I nourish you here, I heal you here, I protect you here.
You may not see it or feel it, but My Mantle is always spread over you, around you.
DO NOT BE AFRAID OF ANYTHING.
Your Heavenly Mother loves YOU!
THE LAST FEW DAYS OF
MDM's CHRISTMAS NOVENA
Our very special NOVENA OF MASSES that began with the Christmas Vigil Mass will conclude on New Year's Day with the Solemnity of Mary the Mother of God ---She Who is also Your Mother
During these last few days of the Novena, turn to your Mother with all the intentions of your heart, and ask Her to present them to Her Son at each Mass. Jesus NEVER says "No" to His Mother!
A Bethany Associate is anyone who considers themselves a friend of the Mission. Which probably includes anyone reading this email.
Don't worry, God knows who you are!

A NETWORK OF TRUST
"This is what MDM is called to be: a growing communion of trust in His Mercy
for our needy world." ~ Fr. John Mary
MDM started encouraging people to pray "Jesus, I trust in You" ten times a day back in 2011. Recently we felt it was important to remind people to turn to Jesus with this simple, powerful prayer in a world that feels more and more out of control. We are suggesting 20 times, but some people find themselves repeating it hundreds of times. It reminds our troubled souls that GOD IS IN CONTROL.
Many of you have put your name on our growing list and have also left a prayer intention or testimony:
Your life of prayer gives encouragement to us who feel that the world is in deep trouble by taking prayer out of our schools and at public events.~Mark
Oh my Jesus I Trust in You! You are always with me. There are others on my walk that don’t even realize I can not trust them. That they are hurtful. They only see what they need. I would rather spend time with you in the Garden of Gethsemene and leave the pain from my broken heart. That is not where I’m called. That peace will come with you in our eternal home. Please remind me of your presence leading me on the rocky path to Jerusalem. Jesus I Trust in You. ~Jill
