“Dear children! Today I am calling you to profoundly live your faith and to implore the Most High to strengthen it, so that winds and storms cannot break it. May the roots of your faith be prayer and hope in eternal life. Already now, little children, work on yourselves in this time of grace, wherein God is giving you the grace – through renunciation and the call to conversion – to be people of clear and persevering faith and hope. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Let us prepare our hearts!

Reflection on the Message of November 25, 2001

 

LET US PREPARE OUR HEARTS

“Dear children! In this time of grace, I call you anew to prayer. Little children, pray and prepare your hearts for the coming of the King of Peace, that with His blessing He may give peace to the whole world. Peacelessness has begun to reign in hearts and hatred reigns in the world. That is why, you who live my messages be the light and extended hands to this faithless world that all may come to know the God of Love. Do not forget, little children, I am with you and bless you all. Thank you for having responded to my call.” Message of November 25, 2001


In the message of the last month, Our Lady told us: “Little children, you are chosen to witness peace and joy”, and today she tells us about restlessness in hearts and hatred in the world.

Everyone seeks joy. Everybody wants to be happy and seeks joy. We all want to be happy. The good and the bad are equal in their desire to be happy. The good ones are good to be happy, and the bad ones would not be bad if they would not hope to become happy in such a way. In his Confessions, the great St. Augustin told us: If we all love joy, it is because we have already known it in a mysterious way. If we had not come to know it – if we were not created for it – we would not love it. The one who knocks at the door of a church – even it he does it with violence and anger – does so because he seeks joy. However, we see that the world around us is mostly sad. Sadness and restlessness strangle our throats and almost suffocate us. There are less and less joyful people and joyful Christians. Nietsche has already criticised Christians because their faces were too gloomy frowning.

Sadness and restlessness walk on our streets, in our villages and in our cities. Sadness has even sneaked into our families. Sadness and restlessness infect even our children to whom, instead of joy, we give things to eat, bigger and bigger and more and more ugly toys to destroy. Joy does not come from things, from toys, from food, from cars, motors, techniques, money or pleasure. Our heart and our soul seek the real food. You cannot cheat your soul while giving it things. If you don’t feed it with God and His Word, it will rebel and seek vengeance. Your soul gives you signs like emptiness, lack of meaning, nervousness, aggressiveness, anger against everything and everybody. You have to recognize these signs, you have to learn again to enjoy in little things and to recognize so many things around us – that everything is given, and that we hove not earned or merited anything.

Gospa, our Mother, walks with us for more than twenty years now. By this message, she prepares us for the time of Advent, which is approaching, and she puts in front of our eyes the King of Peace. Restlessness and hatred govern the world, our Mother tells us in this message, and we know and see that very well. And not only in the world, but they sneaked also into human relationships, families, amongst nations. Our Lady shows us the way, she puts into our hands a powerful means with which we can reach peace, if only we want it and seek it. It is not enough to see and to understand the state of your heart and your soul, of your family. It is not enough to know it, as it is of no use to a hungry man to know that bread is good. It is of no use for us to know that God is love, of no use to know that Our Lady is here out for love for us. We have to follow her words, to make the decision, to start today. We need the encounter and the experience of the God of Love. It is useless to curse darkness; let us light a lamp instead, and darkness is already gone. Sometimes it is enough to lift our eyes just a bit above the mud of this world, above our heads, to pronounce a good and positive word, and darkness is already gone. We have to heal our negative, black, tragic thoughts and pronounce pure words, so that God’s health and peace may reach us. It is not enough to say that there is no prayer in my family, that we can never get together, that every one goes his own way and after his own business. If nobody wants, then you start, have the courage to say to God a word of prayer and a cry, so that through you the light may come down, little by little, on those who are with you.

There are many hearts that follow Our Lady’s messages, which she gives to us still today. Our Lady counts on us, who want to hear her messages; she counts on our perseverance, even when we do not see immediately the fruits and successes. Our security is her presence, her words that she is with us in spite of everything. Let us be and let us remain with Her. Peace and good to you.

Our Lady’s message to Mirjana, today Nov 2, 2016

Dear children,

To come to you and to make myself known to you is a great joy for my motherly heart. It is a gift from my Son for you and for others who are coming. As a mother I am calling you: love my Son above everything. In order to love Him with all your heart, you need to come to know Him. You will come to know Him through prayer. Pray with the heart and with your feelings. To pray means to think of His love and sacrifice. To pray means to love, to give, to suffer and to offer.

I am calling you, my children, to be apostles of prayer and love. My children, it is a time of vigilance. In this vigil I am calling you to prayer, love and trust. As my Son will be looking in your hearts, my motherly heart desires for Him to see unconditional trust and love in them.

The united love of my apostles will live, will conquer and will expose evil.
My children, I was a chalice of the God-man; I was God’s instrument. That is why I am calling you, my apostles, to be a chalice of the true and pure love of my Son. I am calling you to be an instrument through which all those who have not come to know the love of God—who have never loved—may comprehend, accept and be saved.
Thank you, my children.”

While Our Lady was leaving, Mirjana saw a chalice.

Allow the Holy Spirit to Lead you!

Our Lady of Medjugorje Message of May 25, 1993 “Dear children! Today I invite you to open yourselves to God by means of prayer so the Holy Spirit may begin to work miracles in you and through you. I am with you and I intercede before God for each one of you because, dear children, each one of you is important in my plan of salvation. I invite you to be carriers of good and peace. God can give you peace only if you convert and pray. Therefore, my dear little children, pray, pray, pray and do that which the Holy Spirit inspires you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

ALLOW THE HOLY SPIRIT TO LEAD YOU

The most important meaning for faith is really allowing God that He may lead us. He does this by way of the Holy Spirit. To let oneself be led, to listen for God, and to do what He has planned for us is what many people — people who say that they believe — still do not allow themselves to do. For instance, when we are wounded by someone, if we let ourselves be led by God, then we will forgive, and also not loose our patience, even when he has wounded us 70 x 7 times. Jesus tells us to forgive 70 x 7 times, but when we say only after 2 or 3 times that we no longer wish to forgive, then it means that we do not allow God to lead us. And every time, in every sin, the same thing is repeated, because we are failing to allow God to lead us. For instance, someone who does not pray and does not go to Mass, and who does not honor his parents, and who rejects, in one way or another, God’s Commandments, he then fails to allow God to lead him. Why does this happen? Once because we are proud, another time because we are selfish. Pride means in itself the questioning of God: “Who are you to tell me this?” Then it also adds the statement: “I will do this alone, I will do this the way I want to do it.” This pride is the cause of the first sin, and of every sin that anyone has ever committed. Why should man not know what is best for him? …this is what God asked. But pride always says in every situation: “Who are you God? I decide the way I want to decide.” This pride in us is what we must fight with all the means that are available to us by way of the graces that are given us by the Holy Spirit — the Holy Spirit who wishes us to lead us..

Message to Mirjana – June 2, 2014

“Dear children, I call you all and accept you as my children. I am praying that you may accept me and love me as a mother. I have united all of you in my heart, I have descended among you and I bless you. I know that you desire consolation and hope from me because I love you and intercede for you. I ask of you to unite with me in my Son and to be my apostles. For you to be able to do so, I am calling you, anew, to love. There is no love without prayer – there is no prayer without forgiveness because love is prayer – forgiveness is love. My children, God created you to love and you love so as to forgive. Every prayer that comes out of love unites you with my Son and the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit illuminates you and makes you my apostles – apostles who will do everything they do in the name of the Lord. They will pray with their works and not just with words, because they love my Son and comprehend the way of truth which leads to eternal life. Pray for your shepherds that they may always lead you with a pure heart on the way of truth and love – the way of my Son. Thank you.”

Come to Me

maryMessage from July 25, 1989 to Marija

“Dear children! Today I am calling you to renew your hearts. Open yourselves to God and surrender to him all your difficulties and crosses so, God may turn everything into joy. Little children, you cannot open yourselves to God if you do not pray. Therefore, from today, decide to consecrate a time in the day only for an encounter with God in silence. In that way you will be able, with God, to witness my presence here. Little children, I do not wish to force you. Rather freely give God your time, like children of God. Thank you for having responded to my
call.”

risenchrist2“Come to me, all you that labour, and are burdened,
and I will refresh you. Take up my yoke upon you, and learn
of me, because I am meek, and humble of heart: and you shall
find rest to your souls. For my yoke is sweet and my burden light”.
-Matthew 11:28-30

 Pray your rosary today for all your crosses!

 

 

We must respond with our lives

“It is easier to preach than to live the Virgin Mary’s messages – but what works is the latter, as Christians are called to lead by example”, says visionary Marija Pavlovic-Lunetti who points to the Pope for inspiration.

Witnessing the Christian faith only works when it is being lived, not merely talked about, Medjugorje visionary Marija Pavlovic-Lunetti said on May 25, on the air on Radio Maria. She had just received the Virgin Mary’s new message which reads:

“Dear children! Today I call you to be strong and resolute in faith and prayer, until your prayers are so strong so as to open the Heart of my beloved Son Jesus. Pray little children, pray without ceasing until your heart opens to God’s love. I am with you and I intercede for all of you and I pray for your conversion. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

“We Christians speak with the witnessing of our lives. So many times we profess the faith but then, in practice, we are not being consistent. From the beginning, the Madonna said: “Live my messages and put them into practice” Marija commented.

“So many times we speak of fasting, but do not fast. No! With our lives we must lead by example. Even though it is difficult, and so it is easier to preach. There is no word as effective as life, as we have seen with so many priests, with many people who have gone to Heaven before us.”

Marija mentioned “a generation of priests” in Medjugorje as examples, then pointed to Rome for a recent and even more well-known one:

“Pope Francis is responding with his life one hundred percent. With his life and with little and simple messages he is giving a very strong example of simplicity, humility, devotion, and love. That is what we should be doing all of us” Marija said before drawing up two clear alternatives:

“Of course we know it is not easy to be holy because, to go to Heaven, we must take the narrow path, not the broad one, but today the world offers us the highway of perdition” the visionary said.

Marija further told that, even after almost 32 years of apparitions, the Medjugorje visionaries can also still ask themselves why God acts in certain ways and permits certain things:

“When faced with certain crosses, so much suffering, hunger, poverty and many other things in the world, we (the visionaries) also wonder: why does God allow these things? That is why Our Lady calls us to be strong in faith, attached to God, because if we have God, we have everything, as Saint Augustine said.”

Marija: “Our Lady calls us to be strong in faith, attached to God, because if we have God, we have everything.”

“Faced with these questions, Our Lady tells us to pray and to offer up our suffering, so that our suffering has meaning” Marija said.

“I always say that our prayer has no limits, no boundaries, no walls. Sometimes we can only pray, then the Lord gives, the Lord sees our good will, sees our request, our desire, our suffering, our pain. When we are more concerned, we should pray. Our Lady asks us to pray hard and relentlessly. And to those who struggle in faith, who loses it and walk away, she is asking us to give them an example with our lives.”
