Nothing and no one can take us from the hands of Jesus, because nothing and no one can overcome his love. Jesus’s love is invincible. The evil one, the great enemy of God and of his creatures, attempts in many ways to take eternal life from us. But the evil one can do nothing if we ourselves do not open the doors of our hearts to him, by following his deceitful enticements.
The Virgin Mary heard and obediently followed the voice of the Good Shepherd. May she help us to welcome with joy Jesus’s invitation to become his disciples, and to always live in the certainty of being in the paternal hands of the Father.
