26th International Youth Festival begins tonight!!! 

Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! With joy I am with you also today and I call all of you, little children, pray, pray, pray so as to comprehend the love which I have for you. My love is stronger than evil, little children, therefore draw closer to God so as to feel my joy in God. Without God, little children, you do not have a future, you do not have hope or salvation; therefore leave evil and choose good. I am with you and, with you, I intercede before God for all of your needs. Thank you for having responded to my call." (July 25, 2015)

I am sure that Our Lady was looking forward to the 26th International Youth Festival when she gave this message. You can feel her leaning forward towards all the young people who are coming for the festival, with such excitement! She can't wait to encounter the young people in Medjugorje!

She is telling them that she is with them! All young people need companionship in these days. This world is not an easy one to approach as young adults. Certainly they need Our Lady by their sides, to help them make good decisions, and to encourage them in faith.

She encourages them to pray, pray, pray...so as to comprehend her love for them. She wants so much to give them her love. Parents know the ache of wanting to communicate our love for our children. It is sometimes very difficult to do, especially as they grow up. Our Lady has that same ache! Only through prayer will this exchange of love happen.

She also tells them that her love is stronger than evil. Young people face evils on every side. The enemy does not stop at anything to ensnare them. If they can come close to Our Lady and to the Lord, they will experience freedom from evil and great joy!

Our Lady is a good mother, and so she warns the young that there is no future for them without God. Young people have a great deal more future ahead of them that we older folks. The future looms large before them. They will understand the importance of choosing the good, of choosing God in order to secure their future on earth and in heaven.

Finally, Our Lady again emphasizes that she is with the young people, and that she is interceding for their needs. They are not alone!! They will experience this in Medjugorje at the festival, surrounded by thousands of their peers, all drinking in the love of Mary!

I can't wait to pray with and for these young people in Medjugorje.

Mary TV will stream a great deal of the events of the Youth Festival. Below is a tentative schedule for these next 7 days. Please pray for our team in Medjugorje, as they will be working overtime to capture the beautiful events of the Youth Festival. Thank you so much! And pray for the youth!!!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Blessed Mother Mary, sacramentals weep oil, Michigan.

Blessed Mother Mary, sacramentals weep oil, Michigan. | Deaconjohn1987's Blog

June 12, 2014 – Reported in Spirit Daily.com. Following is a excerpt from this article.
Perhaps the most extreme such recent claim comes to us from the house
of a Chaldean woman in Michigan, where, since 2008, according to Dr.
Basil N. Najar, of West Bloomfield, who has researched it, there
has been the oozing “of huge quantities of oil from many sacramentals,”
along with “apparitions and messages from the Virgin Mary.”
asserts that what would be tantamount to dozens of gallons of oil “have
oozed from more than twenty pictures and statues of Jesus, Mary, and
Joseph, and is continuing. Many spiritual and physical healings have
taken place when people are anointed with this oil. The oil has a
pleasant scent and evaporates without leaving a trace. The oil oozes
from the visionary’s hands whenever she prays.”

Dear Family of Mary!

"My love is stronger than evil, little children, therefore draw closer to God so as to feel my joy in God."

Many people have been sharing with us that they are battling anxiety these days. There are lots of things in our world that can make us anxious and fearful. And the enemy will amplify the fear and anxiety by whispering to us, tempting us to doubt God's love, to expect the worst.

Our Lady tells us that her love is stronger than evil. In this case, her love is stronger than the evil of anxiety and fear. I am reminded of a fantastic testimony given last year by Lea Smith. Lea had suffered from anxiety disorder and fear most of her life. But Medjugorje changed all that. Here is her story:

Lea Smith, Fruit of Medjugorje, Episode 114:

Hi, I'm Lea Smith. I'm from Boston, Massachusetts. This is my mother, Eileen. I'm here to tell you my story about my miracle at Medjugorje. My mom has been here many times, and if you had asked me three months ago if I wanted to come here, I would have probably laughed and said, "Never." I suffer with a severe anxiety disorder and have never really traveled ever in my life. I never go an hour away from my home.

So when my mother was going, I had no interest in coming with her. But I woke up a few days after she told me she was going to Medjugorje, and I had this pulsating feeling inside me saying that I needed to go. I tried to ignore it because I don't go anywhere! I don't travel anywhere outside of the state (Massachusetts) and I don't go to the distant parts of the state.

I have had anxiety since I was a little kid. I would miss a lot of school. And I was fearful for everything. I have missed a lot of events and family things just because I have limited myself. I have never found it easy to do even the easy things like going to the dentist or getting my hair cut. And at different times in my life, depending on how bad my anxiety has been, I wouldn't go to food stores, restaurants, movie theaters, to get my hair cut...So when I started getting this feeling, I tried to suppress it. I thought I was just being silly.

I went to work, and was at work for a couple of hours, but I couldn't concentrate. The pulsating, radiating feeling inside me was overwhelming. So I left work early and I went to the post office because I didn't have a passport. But I kept saying, "God, I'm not telling my mom that I want to go to Medjugorje. She's going to have to ask me to come." I kept saying this all day because I thought that if I was supposed to go, she would ask me. But the longer I waited, the more in my soul I could feel that I had to be here. So I ran home and told God, "You don't have to have her ask me to come, I'm just going to tell her."

So she was in her room, and I came in and said, "Mom, I just have to tell you something. I have no money, I have no way to get there, but I am really, really supposed to go to Medjugorje with you. What do you think about that?" And she said, "I felt that someone was supposed to come with us, and so OK!!"

It was quite a long time in advance of the trip, so in my mind I thought I had plenty of time to back out of it. I know I won't go through with it. I don't go anywhere. Along the way there were obstacles that happened within our family, but I had a lot of peace about it. I thought, "I know myself. I am going to get to the airport and have a melt down and it won't happen." And then last week came, and I got to the airport, and I got on a plane and was on the plane for 7 hours, and I was completely at peace. We breezed through the airport, there were no stops or issues. And we got here, and we were on the bus and the tour agent said they had a surprise. Our accommodations were changed, and we were going to stay with Ivan, the visionary. My mom looked at me in shock. We said, "Can you say that again?" The tour agent explained again what she said. My mom was in awe, and I was just thankful that I was in Bosnia, alive, and not worrying about it! That was my second miracle. Our Lady is so good. She got me here in one piece, without worry or stress.

And then, though I had no idea where we were going to stay, it wasn't even on the map. And in Massachusetts we were googling the weather. Everyday there was an 80 % chance of rain. I thought, "Super, you get me to another country, and it is going to rain every day." But my mom was saying, "It doesn't rain in Medjugorje." I said, "Mom, it has to rain." And though we have had a few showers, the weather has been beautiful! We have been able to take great pictures with wonderful memories. I can just envision Our Lady saying, "Ha, Ha! You Massachusetts doubters! You thought you would come here and have a wet, anxiety filled trip, and it hasn't been the case!" The people here are unlike any I have ever met. The kindness and faith and humility everyone has makes it unlike any place on earth.

The peace! Even the animals are peaceful. We have seen a couple dogs. They come up to you and they don't bark. They don't run around, they are so peaceful. Dogs at home chase each other and run around. But everything is at peace here. The birds are always singing. When you come here you are shocked by the wonder and the beauty of it. And you meet all these wonderful people.

And I have had no anxiety. I have had anxiety all my life. Honestly, I have had the most peaceful week ever. To the point that I don't want to go home. We have all discussed if we can get timeshares here or buy a house so we can come here during the summer months. It is just unlike any place here on earth.

But when I felt that feeling inside me, I knew it was a calling. I kept saying to myself, "Mary said 'yes', I have to say 'yes'. Mary's yes is my yes, and I am coming. And every time I would get a little bit hesitant about it, my mom would say, "Tell her you are just coming to see her. You are just coming to see her." So I would lie in bed at night and think "What am I doing, I am going to Bosnia..." Then I would say, "No, no, Mary I am coming to see you!"

So I have had unbelievable peace about the whole trip and being here, and I don't know if I have ever felt as peaceful as I feel here. I don't feel like I have anxiety. I don't feel anxious. I know that is all thanks to the Good Lord and His mercy, because He is always with me even in anxiety, but I have been limited in the things I do because of the constant fear. With anxiety, you work around situations. So, where you want to go out to eat, you choose the closest place possible. Everything I want to do is within a very specific comfort zone. Bosnia is not one of my comfort zones. At least it wasn't!

I want to come back. I feel I will come back. I am really thankful I have had the experience, but I know it is Our Lady keeping watch over me. And everyone should come. Everyone should come, because there is no real good word that I could use to describe the experience. It's an experience that I want to have over and over again. Our Lady is here. And even though we don't see her, we know she is here in the miraculous deeds that she does "inside", within yourself. For the last four or five years, I have said to myself, "Perfect love casts out fear, Perfect love casts out fear..." But really, I know that Mary's perfect love has kept out any fear from me. And that's my story! 

At the end of her testimony, Lea smiles the biggest smile you can imagine!! It is a beautiful smile, one that radiates the joy and peace she has been experiencing in Medjugorje! Proof that her fears had been defeated! As Lea says, "Mary's perfect love has kept out any fear from me!" Thank you Lea, for sharing! And thank you, Dearest Mother, for loving us with your powerful love that is stronger than evil!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Joy Originates in God

Behind the Scenes

Joy Originates in God

Special Edition: July 29, 2015 A.D.


Sign-up for mejList, the FREE Medjugorje Newsletter

July 29, 2015 A.D.

Our Lady of Medjugorje said on July 25, 2015:

“…draw closer to God so as to feel my joy in God.”

True joy is found in God. However, many do not know what this looks like. When most people think of religion or spiritual things, they think of suffering, they think of losing, they think of things that are not popular or attractive or worthwhile. They think of things that would only bring joy to a person that does not “have a life.”

On the recent July 25, 2015 Radio WAVE program, a Friend of Medjugorje shared one of many moments of joy the Caritas Community has experienced. We share the story with you for your own joy. The following took place in August 2003:

Medjugorje visionary Marija’s family, the founder of Caritas and his family, and the majority of the Caritas community left for Florida. Because of all the small children, the usual six hour drive turned into an all-day drive. The plan had been to arrive with plenty of time to get settled before apparition time at 6:40 PM. What happened instead was that we were just nearing the place where we would be staying on the ocean, but had not arrived yet at the time we should be starting the Rosary. Though we had officially started our family retreat vacation, our founder wanted to make sure Our Lady was given a special time each day when we all gathered together for the Rosary and Her apparition. This would be more challenging to work out since our normal routine at Caritas would not be kept. On the drive down to Florida, there was some question as to what time the apparition would be. We would be in a different time zone from Alabama, which helped to cause some confusion. Would Our Lady appear at 6:40 PM Alabama time or Florida time?

When it became apparent that we wouldn’t be able to make it in time for the apparition to be in the home we would be staying in, our founder took a surprise course of action. When we were in sight of the water, he pulled over, stopped the car, jumped out and began running towards a large rock sea wall. Directly behind it was the beach and the water of the Gulf. Everyone in the caravan of cars followed his lead, parked their cars, and quickly scaled the rock wall to get to the water. They all arrived behind our founder, who had knelt in the sand, facing the sunset on the beach and began praying the Rosary. Rebel, our dog, was bounding towards the water, and gave everyone a show as he began jumping in and out of the waves. A great joy overtook us all as we took in our first view of the sea.

Because we were rushed to meet the time Our Lady would be appearing, we barely finished the Rosary. Just before Marija went into ecstasy, our founder leaned over to her and asked her to ask Our Lady exactly what time She desired the apparition to be each day so there would be no confusion, rushing, etc., so we could plan better when to start the Rosary. We could have never guessed Our Lady’s response to such a question. Marija told us that when She asked Our Lady this question, Our Lady smiled and said:
“Because it is your vacation, I will come whenever you pray.”

We were all stunned by this message. It was hard to believe Our Lady would actually do something like that for us. It brought great joy and awe to the community. Our founder said he could write a whole writing on this one message, this one action of Our Lady. And so, because we did not have any time constraint upon us, our founder could plan the apparitions each day at the most favorable time for the Community to receive Our Lady during our days of vacation.

Joy originates in God. To choose the path of God will bring true joy of the heart. Our Lady, knowing that our founder would do everything necessary to honor Her time of apparition, instead took off the time constraint, and allowed it to be of our own choosing.

Forward several years later. Hurricane Ivan struck the area where we had our special vacation with Our Lady and out of an entire row of beach-front houses, only one house was destroyed during the hurricane. It was the house the community had stayed in and where Our Lady’s apparitions had taken place. Not only that, but the special apparition spot where Our Lady gave the above message was also destroyed because the beach itself had disappeared. Nothing remained of it.

Several years later the founder of Caritas with some of the Caritas community returned to the same beach while working on a special project called Project WAVE.*  They went for a walk near the place where the first apparition had occurred. When they reached the area where the road matched the spot where Our Lady had given the above message, they were shocked to find that though the beach had disappeared, God had marked the spot for them.

Cross marking Our Lady's apparition spot
All things work for good for those who love God. What a hurricane wipes away, God remembers. And why would He not remember a sacred spot where His Mother appeared, especially when the hearts of those present would want to preserve it? We do not know the circumstances that bring a Cross to this spot, but we can only guess it was a tragic event. Yet, even this brings a grace to someone who seeks God, and an encounter with Him. Our Lady will do this in your daily life, if you surrender your heart to Her in seeking the joy of God through living Her messages. A Friend of Medjugorje tells more in the July 25, 2015 Radio WAVE show. For more, listen to the July 25, 2015, Radio WAVE show titled, Choose Your Future History here.

* Project WAVE was the project that a Friend of Medjugorje initiated to build Mej.com. After the launch and new refinements with Medjugorje.com on June 1, 2009, many Medjugorje sites changed their appearances, and offered similar features as what he originally offered. It has been beautiful to see so many people be inspired by what Our Lady inspired in him to do. Read more on Project WAVE here.

Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! With joy I am with you also today and I call all of you, little children, pray, pray, pray so as to comprehend the love which I have for you. My love is stronger than evil, little children, therefore draw closer to God so as to feel my joy in God. Without God, little children, you do not have a future, you do not have hope or salvation; therefore leave evil and choose good. I am with you and, with you, I intercede before God for all of your needs. Thank you for having responded to my call." (July 25, 2015)

"...therefore draw closer to God so as to feel my joy in God."

Our Lady thought it was important for us to know about her joy in God. So she recounted to St. Luke her encounter with St. Elizabeth, the mother of St. John the Baptist. St. Luke wrote down the whole thing, starting with Our Lady's greeting to Elizabeth, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Elizabeth and John (who leapt in her womb!) and then the wonderful canticle of joy that Mary sang:

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
My spirit rejoices in God my Savior
For he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.

From this day all generations will call me blessed:
The almighty has done great things for me,
And holy is his Name.

He has mercy on those who fear him
In every generation.

He has shown the strength of his arm,
He has scattered the proud in their conceit.

He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
And lifted up the lowly.

He has filled the hungry with good things,
And the rich he has sent away empty.

He has come to the help of his servant Israel
For he has remembered his promise of mercy,
The promise he made to our fathers,
To Abraham and his children for ever. (Luke 1:46-55)

I believe that she wanted to communicate her joy to all the generations after her. What was this joy? It was the fulfillment of God's promise to Adam and Eve, to Abraham, to Isaac, to Jacob, to David, to the prophets, and now to us. It is Jesus, the coming of the Messiah, He who has defeated the enemy of man, and given us the possibility of life eternal with God in heaven through His act of salvific love.

Our Lady wants us to feel her eternal, heavenly, impossibly intense joy in God, as it pulses through her heart to all of us! She is exultant because the victory has been won!!! God has looked with favor upon her. God has done GREAT things for her!! God has shown His incredible mercy for all who fear Him, who love Him. He has shown His strength, driven away the proud, cast down the mighty, and sent the rich away empty while he has lifted up the lowly, fed the hungry, and remembered His promises to his children. All this has been done by the coming of Jesus. And Our Lady could not be more jubilant, more filled with light and joy!

If we draw close to God we will become more and more aware of this great victory He has won, and we will feel Our Lady's joy, we will be exultant like she is at what God has done and is doing!!! The closer to God we get, the more joy we will have, Mary's joy.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! With joy I am with you also today and I call all of you, little children, pray, pray, pray so as to comprehend the love which I have for you. My love is stronger than evil, little children, therefore draw closer to God so as to feel my joy in God.

I am with you and, with you, I intercede before God for all of your needs. Thank you for having responded to my call." (July 25, 2015)

"My love is stronger than evil, little children..."

Immediately, as I read these words, I was reminded of a testimony to the power of the love of Our Lady over evil. It was a testimony given in 2010 at the priest's retreat in Medjugorje, by Father Leonid of Ukraine. Here is the testimony, as found on the Parish Website. (I have added the link at the end of the testimony.) Truly Our Lady's love is stronger than evil!!!

Priest Leonid, Redemptorist from Ukraine province, participated in the 15th International seminar for priest in Medjugorje and gave this testimony, first to the other participants and then to Radio Station Mir Medjugorje. We publish the testimony as it was given:

My first pilgrimage to Medjugorje was related to my obligations and to my occupation in the priestly vocation. Namely, in 2005 my local Church entrusted me with huge responsibility and gave me a heavy burden to carry and that was in the service of exorcist.

The first months and the very first year were filled with God's love and grace, but also with great difficulties and temptations. One of the major difficulties took place during a session of exorcism over one possessed person. That person spoke to me in a very rough voice, full of horror in these words: "I am horrible, I am powerful, and I will destroy you. I will destroy your priesthood and all of your life."

Although that was quite bad, I did not take that seriously at all. After all, I believed in God completely and I did not have any reasons to doubt that. I also knew that if I had fear in front of the Satan that would be as if I had already lost something. But God allowed this situation to take place, and I am going to share with you how great and how mighty his Mother is, and how Medjugorje is sacred ground.

When I was in great pain, when I suffered and when I was tempted daily, I was not able to pray at all. I would go to confession every single day, but Satan tempted me all the times. The temptations were so strong that I lost peace in my soul completely. And not only that, I also felt that I lost my priesthood and my vocation. I felt that it was a complete and total destruction of my life.

In that difficult reality, while I was still unable to figure out what was happening to me, somebody offered me to come to Medjugorje. And I came. I was with a group of priests. I was just not able to pray, not even when they prayed. During that pilgrimage I met one other priest, Father Ambrosias from Slovakia. He completely sacrificed his life and his vocation working with people from Ukraine in the region of Carpatho - Ukraine. He traveled soon after heart attack, and he also had diabetes. He was a Franciscan priest who came to Medjugorje five times before that. He absolutely thrilled me with his life and humbleness. He became my friend, I would help him around, take him by the hand, as he was an older man. It appeared that I was helping to him, but in truth was it was the other way round.

We were once climbing up the Hill of Apparitions and it was to be the apparition to one of the visionaries. Everything was packed with people, priests. I sat next to Fr. Ambrosias and I turned my back to the apparition site. I felt myself not worthy of being there at all. But during the time of the Rosary, I felt a desire to look towards that direction, to see what was happening there. At the same time, as I felt that desire, another inner voice was saying to me not to look there. "You are failure and you will end up in hell", I heard. It was horrible.

Those first, positive feelings directed my look towards the apparition site. I started to look and I was searching for a sign. Maybe I was to see something at the end. Hope was being born in me slowly, but also more new arguments about how my humiliation was not to be changed. But, I believed in the crucial moment...just for a moment. And in that very moment, as the answer to all of the questions ever posed to me, I was able to feel how Our Lady was coming down, from Heaven to this world. It was horrible in that moment. Such a powerful perception, a scent of the other world [of evil] that I used to feel up to that point.

And then, I was appeased by certain gentleness, a light touch, like a gentle breeze of Our Lady's presence. She was coming closer to me. And as she drew closer to me, the power of evil was disappearing. In my heart I experienced new revelation. I was able to experience how powerful her presence is, how she was humble.  Then I realized that she does not cast away evil spirits, but they run themselves. They are not able to bear her purity and the beauty of her presence. She does not humiliate them nor does she send them away. She simply loves them and they cannot stand that!

And then, a change of spirits within me took place. The spirit of Satan, the spirit that destroys, disappeared with all of his depression and fear. Instead of that spirit, Our Lady's spirit took its place in me. In my heart, I heard the voice: "Do not be afraid, I am your mother! I am your guarantee that you will not be destroyed, that you will not fail." Everything was changed. That experience of presence of Our Blessed Mother became a miracle of love that saved me, my vocation and my life!

I started to feel Our Lady's presence in every exorcism I perform. I will just share one little example, since there are many similar ones. Our priests were dealing with one possessed girl who came to confess in front of one young priest who just returned after his studies in Rome. And as he was saying the absolution words, that person, Satan, in that girl, hit that priest so hard that he fell down immediately. Then, that same person started calling other priests in some strange voice. That priest was scared and he called me.

After few moments that girl was in front of me and I started to pray over her. As I began the exorcism, I knew the diagnosis straight away, the girl was severely possessed and I invited five devoted faithful to pray as well. As I recited the traditional prayers of exorcism, Satan just laughed. It spoke to me in the English language, humiliated me and constantly laughed at me. Then, I began to pray to Our Lady. I was totally exhausted. I began to be nervous as well. I felt that I need to finish my prayer, but the evil spirit was not going away. It was the spirit of suicide. I began to call Our Lady with all of my heart. In the same way as the child calls his mom. And real screaming began at that moment: "I cannot stay here any longer, Our Lady is here, I need to go away." And the spirit was gone.

This was just one situation and there are so many similar ones. During these five years, as I have been entrusted the service of exorcism, I experience many temptations and trials. I had those before; I know I will have those in the future as well. But, Our Lady keeps me in her heart. I CAN NO LONGER LIVE WITHOUT MEDJUGORJE AND JERUSALEM. I need to be in Medjugorje and Jerusalem every year. That is what faith is for me. Here I have faith, blessing and grace. I am grateful to dear God that I am able to witness Our Lady's grace in this way. I would like each one of us to want to love more our Blessed Mother, the Mother of God. She is our Mother. She loves her children. She is prepared to do anything her children ask of her. I feel that if it wasn't for her presence, we would all be destroyed. That is why we should try to live every second of our lives with her. I feel a personal invitation to help other people to come to Medjugorje. To bring here all of those people who experience tremendous spiritual suffering."

At the end, priest Leonid blessed all of the listeners of Radio Mir.    

"I began to call Our Lady with all of my heart. In the same way as the child calls his mom." Our Lady is our mom, she will come when we call, with all of her love and humility, and drive the enemy away from us. We have only to call out to her as her child!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! With joy I am with you also today and I call all of you, little children, pray, pray, pray so as to comprehend the love which I have for you. My love is stronger than evil, little children, therefore draw closer to God so as to feel my joy in God. Without God, little children, you do not have a future, you do not have hope or salvation; therefore leave evil and choose good. I am with you and, with you, I intercede before God for all of your needs. Thank you for having responded to my call." (July 25, 2015)

Denis and I both heaved a sigh of relief when we received this message on Saturday. With all the speculation and false reports about Medjugorje that swirled in the news and on the internet over the past month, it was a joy to hear Our Mother's words of love and comfort on July 25!

"With joy I am with you also today..." These words burst forth with optimism and reassurance! Our Lady is with us! She is with us with joy! She is here "also today"!! We are not abandoned or alone. Mother Mary is with us. Like children in need of their mother's care, we need Mary. Each day we look to her for wisdom, peace, support and guidance. She offers us her motherly presence to give us those very things. Through her presence, her powerful spiritual protection and her messages, Our Lady creates an environment for us in which we are safe and able to grow. Her messages are like a school for us all. It is a school in which we learn how to pray, to fast, to forgive, to serve, to bless and to love. We learn to be Christians from the Mother of Christ!

And so, with joy we want to be with Mary also today! Our Lady is with us, but are we with her? Are we open to her presence? Have we welcomed her into our everyday life? Have we consecrated ourselves to her on a daily basis, so that she can envelope us in her protective environment, her mantle?

Our Lady can only be as involved in our lives as we allow her to be. We need to respond to her. That is why she continues to say: "I call all of you, little children, pray, pray, pray so as to comprehend the love which I have for you." To respond to Our Lady's presence and her mantle of love, we need to pray, pray, pray. The more we pray, the more we will become aware of her presence and her love. The more we pray, the more open we will be to her whispers of love and encouragement, the more we will recognize her interventions in our lives, and see the fruit of her intercession for us with the Father. The more we pray, the more we will "see" Our Lady with the eyes of faith. Then we will truly understand her motherly love, a love that wants to lead us to God.

Today, let's pray, pray, pray. We want to comprehend Our Lady's love. We need to comprehend it if we are going to make it through these difficult days. We need to be steeped in that love, covered and filled with it. It is a love that is stronger that evil.

Along with our Rosaries, Holy Mass, and personal prayer, here is a short prayer we can pray throughout our day, to invite Our Lady into our lives at any moment. It is a quick consecration to Mary. We want to comprehend Our Lady's love, so let's pray, pray, pray!

"Mother, I am yours now and forever. Through you and with you I always want to belong completely to Jesus."

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

MEDJUGORJE TRIVIA | National Medjugorje Movement


St James the Greater being processed from the Parish of St James, Medjugojre, yesterday on the Patrons Feast Day, July 25th.
If the apparitions of Medjugorje are one day approved, then Church
history will have recorded the first and last ever Marian apparitions
and messages from Our Lady as being transmitted through St James the

The first ever apparition of the Blessed Mother, approved by the Church, was an Apparition of Our Lady of the Pillar who appeared to St James in Spain, 40AD, whilst Our Lady was still alive (bilocation).

In Medjugorje, the visionaries testify that Our Lady told them these
apparitions are now the last ones. Coincidentally they are happening
through the Parish of St James, Medjugorje, established in 1892 – 89
years before the first apparition.

Therefore not only is St James the patron of pilgrims and
conversions, but if Medjugorje is apparoved he will also open and close
Our Lady’s mission through Marian apparitions in almost exactly 2000

July 25, 2007
“Dear children! Today, on the day of the Patron of your Parish, I call you to imitate the lives of the Saints.
July 25, 2002
“Dear children! Today I rejoice with your patron
saint and call you to be open to God’s will, so that in you and through
you, faith may grow in the people you meet in your everyday life.
Little children, pray until prayer becomes joy for you. Ask your holy
protectors to help you grow in love towards God.

“I have come to call the world to conversion for the last time. Afterwards, I will not appear any more on this earth.” *Mirjana explains she understand this as meaning ‘I will not appear in this way’.
June 23, 1982
“These apparitions are the last in the world.”
