This blog was started on July 21st, 2015, after my Mary, Our Mother blog had mysteriously disappeared. I will post only Marian items, especially regarding Medjugorje and other Marian apparitions. Thank you for reading this blog. May it give great glory to God through the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

Mirjana greets Our Lady on August 2, 2015

Dear Family of Mary,
we rest up after the Youth Festival, here is part 2 of Mirjana's talk
given on August 5. Mirjana speaks from her practical and motherly
heart, and we can benefit from her straight talk!
Mirjana Soldo, speaking on August 5, 2015 at the Youth Festival (Part 2)
order to follow her, she says that we should be fasting. I know that
many of you find it hard to accept that message of Our Lady, because she
says "bread and water on Wednesday and Friday." And again I say that if you never fasted two days a week on bread and water, start slowly. First you can start on Friday, giving up meat. Catholics never at meat on Friday,
so I will go back to that. And then I will try to do what Our Lady
wants me to do, I will start fasting. Then maybe next time I will give
up dinner, or lunch, or maybe I will give up coffee. Slowly, and it is
important that I want it, that my heart wants it, and Mother will help
me. If your heart desires it, nothing can stop you. If you fall down,
don't get disappointed.
need to know that she loves you, that you are a precious child, and she
loves you just the way you are. She knows you the best and she loves
you the most. In one of her messages long ago she said, "If you knew how much I love you, you would cry with joy!"
is what I desire to say to you. Every 2nd of the month at the Blue
Cross, when I see with the love she has for us, I immediately cry with
tears. People have asked me if I have ever touched Our Lady, or has Our
Lady touched me. Never. I can see her for 100 years, and I will know
that she is the Mother of God and I am just one going in this world, but
I will say to you that I never felt the need to touch her. Because when
Mother looks at you the way she looks at you, you have everything. You
do not want anything else. You don't want it to stop ever. And all
mothers will understand me. As a mother, I would give my life for my
children. But when I am with Our Lady, I do not remember them. I do not
remember having children at all, I only want to be with her. She looks
at me and I look at her, I think that is heaven.
think that the love I feel as I look at her and she looks at me can
only be felt in heaven. Therefore dear youth, I do not have words to
tell you how much she loves you, how much she knows you and how much she
fights for you. You can start coming to her, you can start with your
hand in hers to go towards Jesus, because that is all for us! In the
last message Our Lady spoke about love, and she said "for those who love, for those who live the word of my Son, that will be life." Is there anything more beautiful than that? Only with love will we have everything.
comes through prayer. Love comes through fasting. That is what she is
asking of us. We cannot love with our hearts if our hearts are burdened.
We cannot love if our hearts are burdened. That means that we need to
go to confession. Our Lady says there is not a single person in the
world who doesn't need monthly confession. But is must be confession
with the heart. When you come before the priest, when you sit before
him, that you might see Jesus, in your heart you must feel that you are
sorry, really, really sorry. You will try with all of your heart not to
repeat all that. You will try, and you repent. That is what is
important, because if we are not able to forgive, then we cannot expect
that God forgives us. When we say the Our Father - "forgive us as we
forgive..." are we sincere? How can I say I am following Jesus, that I
believe in Jesus yet I cannot forgive?
I say that I will not forgive, I could never forgive that person, I
will never forget this, and on the other hand, I expect Jesus to forgive
me, that is not possible. As we are ready to forgive, He will forgive
us. Be prepared to forgive. Only those who have Jesus in their hearts
are prepared to forgive with all of their hearts. We know what is
important. What is important is life with Jesus, which comes after this
life (which is just a blink of the eyes, Our Lady says). I want, like
all of you, that when I come before Jesus, He will be able to forgive
me, the way I forgave.
I have anger in my heart I am doing bad things to myself, to those who
are around me, who are in my vicinity. Because I am passing on my anger
to them. And when I am ready to forgive with all my heart, then I am
prepared to love with all of my heart and I will do good to everyone
would like to ask you to pray every day. Pray to Our Lady that she may
give you the gift of love. Because when we have love, we will see Jesus
in every Human being. WE will not judge. We will not criticize. We will
love our neighbor because God created him in His image and likeness. He
is my brother in Christ.
look at this Youth Festival. People have come from all over the world.
Each one of us says the Our Father in our language, yet we all
understand each other because we all love and desire Jesus in the first
place in our hearts. My mission, what Our Lady has chosen me for, is to
pray for those un-believers. She never uses those words, she never says
unbeliever; she says "those who haven't met the love of God yet."
asks for our help, and when she says this, she is not referring to the
six visionaries. She thinks of all of her children. We can change those
who do not believe, but only with our prayer and with our example. We
need to pray for them every single day. We need to place at the first
place our prayer for them because, believe me, when we pray for them we
are praying for ourselves. WE pray for our future. We pray for the
future of our children. In the same way, for example, each of us has
unbelievers in our homes, in our neighborhoods, at work. And these
unbelievers are looking at us. They look at our life. They are searching
for God in us. Do they find God in us? We will be responsible for that
have a big responsibility because we say we are children of God. We say
that we follow Jesus. And Our Lady said in one of the messages,
"Do not say that you are following my Son, and you live life in such a
way that all those who do not know my Son, by looking at you never want
to get to know Him." That is why we have this big
responsibility. That is why our example needs to be firm. They need to
see God in us. They need to see the love of God in us.
pilgrims who come to Medjugorje make a mistake, the think that the
visionaries are something special. They think we are privileged. Trust
me, that is not the way it is. For Our Lady as a Mother, there are not
privileged children. There are no children that she loves more than
others, or that she listens more to some children and less to others.
All mothers know that if you have children, and you are a true mother,
you will love all your children with the same love. Then you can imagine
our heavenly Mother, she has chosen me that through me she can give
messages, but in all these 34 years of her apparitions, she never has
said my name. She has never spoken to me personally. When I was going
through a hard period, when I was under the communists in Sarajevo,
separated from the others, when I was alone with only my family, when
every day the police came to my home and took me away as a little girl,
Our Lady never said, "Do not be afraid, I am with you." Never. She was
only giving me messages just like everyone here. That is when I learned
that for her there are no privileged children. There are not those she
listens to less, and those she listens to more.
is the same here in Medjugorje, many times they come to me and say, "I
came to know the love of God. I was healed." And for many of those
people I never asked Our Lady, I didn't know them. They had faith. They
had open hearts. They were the ones asking Mother to help them. And
Mother was asking her Son to help them. This is what I am saying to you.
When you have Mother you don't need visionaries. You only need to have
an open heart. Because she says, "Open your hearts and I will be with
you." It depends only on you. How much to you desire for her to be with
you? It depends on you and how much you need your mother.
see Our Lady with the eyes is beautiful. I already shared this with
you. For me this is heaven. But to see Our Lady with the heart is the
fulfillment of everything. You can look at her with your eyes and not
understand, but you can look at her with your heart and you will
understand everything. And all of you, my dear friends, all of you can
see Our Lady with your heart. If you want that, cleanse your heart. That
means confess, open your hearts, because only a confessed heart is a
clean heart, and call for Mother.
you are here in Medjugorje, use the time, go to a place where you can
be alone, speak to the Mother, say to her everything that bothers you,
everything that makes you suffer. You will hear her. You will feel her
in your heart. She will never refuse her children. She never refuses the
children when they call her. You don't need to be a visionary. You need
to be her child.
anyone is privileged for the heavenly Mother, it would be our priests.
She has never, ever said to me what they need to be doing. Every 2nd of
the month she tells us what we need to do for them. She says, "Dear
children, they do not need your criticism. They need your prayers and
your love. God is going to judge them as priests. Always say "he who is
without sin may throw the first stone."
is why I say to you, youth, that the world is going to remain for you.
Bring from Medjugorje one thing, the most important thing, and that is
love. Bring it to this world, the world is hungry for love. The more we
have, the less we have, because we do not have love. Nothing is going to
satisfy us, only love. Love is our Jesus, our God. It is God who showed
us how much he loves us, and if we are going to follow Him, then we
need to love.
to follow Him is not easy. Because whoever follows Jesus, carries the
cross. Some carry smaller crosses, some bigger crosses, you will never
get a cross that you will not be able to carry. The true follower of
Jesus is going to say thank you when he receives the cross. If I am not
able to do that and I say, "Do not leave me alone with this cross," then
the one who has not gotten to know the love of God will say "Why not?
The symbol of your faith is the cross. If you are not ready and prepared
to carry that cross, that will mean that you did not get to know the
love of God yet. You young people, you should be the fruits in this
world. Be the fruits of Medjugorje. Show what Mother is requiring of us.
Show what it means to love Jesus. She what does it means to follow
since this Youth Festival started, I have been praying for you. I am
praying that Our Lady helps you. If she invited you, if she desired you
to be here, in this rocky land, underneath the sun that is burning you,
may she show you with her merciful love why she invited you here and
what is it she is asking of you. I am praying that for you every day.
You pray that to her also. She is surely going to tell us and show us
the way because she loves us. Thank you so much. Thank you for saying
yes to our Mother. Thank you for listening to me, and let us always be
united in prayer.
Let us say one Hail Mary for all that is in our hearts....
