Dear Family of Mary!
"Dear children! I beseech you, especially those from this parish, to live my messages and convey them to others, to whomever you meet. Thank you for having responded to my call." (August 16, 1984)
Here is a thought for today. Our Lady gave this message in 1984. She counseled the people of the parish, and probably all who were pilgrims there, to live her messages AND convey them to others. She didn't want them to be quiet about her messages, to be reticent about talking about them in public, or making conversation about them. She actually said, "...convey them to others, to whomever you meet." This is rather amazing!
"To whomever you meet..." The possibilities are endless. We could convey the messages to our neighbor, our postman, our taxi driver, our teacher, our coworker, and how many more!! She wanted her children to be proud of her messages, and to share them as the special gift they are.
It may have been easier to share the messages in 1984 when there was a great deal of interest in Medjugorje, and it was so new. But these days many feel that sharing the messages is not politically correct. There is a lot of confusion over what to say about Medjugorje.
I think that all this confusion and negativity over Our Lady's messages and her presence in Medjugorje comes from those who do not believe. They are free to have their opinion. But we who do believe have a right and responsibility to share about the wonders of Our Lady's presence. How sad we will be if at the end of our lives we realize how many people could have received the peace of God through Our Lady if we had spoken up, and didn't because we were afraid to speak.
We are Our Lady's only way to reach many of those people. We are her little ones who have been consoled, converted and healed through her messages. We need to share Our Lady's messages, even if it is only a phrase at a time, with all who need her so badly. It is a work of mercy to share about Our Lady of Medjugorje to others.
One suggestion: If we read even one message a day and meditate a little on it, we may be able to have phrases from it accessible in our memory, waiting for the right moment to share it with someone in need. Even one phrase from Our Lady can be life changing:
"If you knew how much I love you, you would cry with joy!"
"Even one rosary alone can do miracles in the world and in your lives."
"God doesn't want anything from you, only your surrender."
"Prayer works miracles."
"Pray, and do that which the Holy Spirit is telling you to do."
"I love each one of you as much as I love my Son, Jesus."
"I am with you and I am looking at you and I am blessing you."
"You are a part of me."
"I am with you and unceasingly pray for you that your life may be a reflection of heaven from earth."
"I desire to take you by the hand and to walk with you in the battle against the impure spirit."
"I am the Queen of Peace."
These are seeds that, when planted in someone's heart, will produce much grace for healing and conversion. We carry those seeds in our hearts, but we must plant them in other hearts so that the joy can be shared and shared and shared around the world.
"...Live my messages and convey them to others, to whomever you meet."
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
