Talk by Doctor Darinka Glamuzina October 6th Yellow
Hall, Medjugorje (Part 2)
was still trying to explain it, that quantum leap but in my conscience.
Everything that went in the past for me was something saying God
doesn't exist. Now with completely different eyes I could look at the
world and for me, all of a sudden, the world looked the most beautiful
place. Beautiful Praise God. Amazing life. The fact that God exists and
for me, He exists, then everything is different. Then I am the child of
God and if I am the child of God, then we are all children of God. There
is no difference. We are all precious human beings,
children of God. And that transformation started at that time and what
happened later was amazing, it was fantastic.
wanted to learn more about God, because I understood that I knew
nothing about Him. Regarding knowledge of God, about the main thing in
this world, the main thing in our existence, I didn't know anything. And
since I did not know anything about God, I didn't know anything about
myself either. All the mistakes I made and even later on
that I made, happened because I was not aware of the amazing presence of
God. As time went by, grace came upon me. Of course I made
many mistakes but I had the feeling that I was making a little bit of
progress in my spirituality and that for a moment, a little bit of the
curtain in front of Heaven was moved to make a small space for me.
started manifesting in my life in the sense that if I thought I should
know a little more about something, usually a book because I like to
read, in a day or two the book was there for me. It took a while for me
to understand that all of this is coming from Heaven. God wants us to
get to know Him. God wants me to walk with Him through my life and
everything through Our Lady.
I started going to Mass and I started praying the rosary and singing in the choir. For
22 years I have been singing in the choir here in Medjugorje and in
that way I am with the Lord in the Eucharist at the time of the
celebration of the Mass. My whole life was somehow transformed into
celebration. Celebration with God. During that time of formation I had
two significant dreams which do not belong to the realm of ordinary
dreams. I want to talk to you about my dream. It is interesting because
my dreams were so significant for me personally and they were carrying
me to the events that in the future really happened.
when a person starts walking with God then we should not be afraid of
anything. For a long time as a doctor, I knew that I often had the
potential for fear, fear from people in my surroundings. You need
to know that in every kind of group at work there is a kind of bonding,
especially after the war here. One dream in particular was significant
when Our Lady said to me "Don't you feel me being next to you?" And in
that moment I felt an amazing joy and bliss. There is a pathway through
the woods that I take every day to pray and in that dream Gospa said "go
down to your pathway". And on that pathway it said 'Be not afraid' and
in the sky above it said 'Be not afraid'. Beneath that were the words in
English, 'be happy' and ''thank you for having responded to my call'.
am a pediatrician, neonatologist, I am a professor of pediatrics at the
University of Mostar working with small babies in incubators. Thousands
of times I experienced amazingly difficult situations with babies. Then
I would speak to the parents and I would ask them if they were
religious, or had faith regardless of which religion, because we treat
children of all religions. If parents said they believed in God, I would
give them homework and I would tell them to pray for their child and to
pray a lot. During that process of prayer, the treatment which would
sometimes last for weeks, even months, the parents and I would enter
into a special relationship, a very special kind of friendship, not an
earthly one. So far there are hundreds of babies (I worked for 20 years)
and in an amazing way children would be healed. When the process is over, when
the babies go home, everyone thinks that that is normal but I know that
it's not. I know that an amazing grace came upon them. I can feel that.
I find that an amazing grace comes upon babies and parents. The
children in our conditions, (you have to understand that we are talking
about hospitals here in the Balkans) in an amazing way made a recovery
and they were healed.
What is amazing
and really beautiful in my work and that Gospa gave to me is that the
parents recognize that is the work of Jesus, Gospa or Allah and they say
to me that they completely understand that they had to go through that
suffering in order to be closer to God. Regardless of how difficult they
found that time, now they're happy because their life is given an
amazing dimension that they didn't know anything about before. God can
but you have to ask Him, you have to open your heart, you have to purify
your heart. Parents would tell me that they would feel an urge to go to
confession and confess their sins that they felt the need to go to
Communion, that they prayed every day and for the first time in their
lives they felt practical faith in God. Do you know what it means? It's
like love. You can read about it, write about it, and yet
never experience it. But once you experience it you don't have to read
about it anymore. You have an exclusive experience. That is
the greatest love that a human person can experience and that it was
worth being born and that is the purpose of life. In this work that I do
and I believe that all of you in the work you do, regardless of what
type of job we are talking about, with people in their surroundings, you
can experience love, hatred or indifference.
Everything except love is a waste of time. Everything. I am already old now and I am speaking about myself now, I
think it was worth being born, to get married to a man from
Hercegovina, to be on the hill that day on the 6th day of the
apparitions, to be given a slap by Gospa, but with love, a slap with
love. I understood everything. That God loves, that God punishes, and
that sometimes He keeps you at a distance until you are cleansed,
purified, because you can't come before God being dirty. You know
we all feel the need here in Medjugorje to go to confession. It's
getting rid of the dirt of the world and we all feel the need to be
purified, to be able to stand before God because He loves us in the way
we are. We're originals.
a few words about my relationship with Medjugorje. I already shared
with you about my contact with God and I believe that the purpose of
life is to get to know God and that we are children of God. No person in
the world is the same. Everyone is unique and every person is important
to God, Each one of us in invited to joy.
know a lot of people, thousands of people who came to Medjugorje from
abroad and I know what was happening to them. For me this is the
greatest metaphysical place in the world. It's the change of a person,
and it happens on an invisible level. Maybe you're not aware but later
on you will see that in you dwells a new person and I believe that
thousands miles per hour Our Lady does that, upon all of us. That's my
experience. I've seen it happening to my cousins, my friends. Why is
this so important? In Western Europe you know how the world in that part is really collapsing. Very deep. We are
all spiritually hungry people but we are all spiritually immature and
some are even spiritually sick but most of the time spiritually
immature. God has a plan and we are all part of the plan because without
us he can't do anything, because we are His children. That moment when we
All become a little more spiritually mature, the world will start changing, rapidly. Our Lady, the
Queen of Peace, she's the one doing all that. It's obvious that first
inside ourselves, we have to create this peace. Because if you do not
have peace in yourself then you cannot give that peace. The first and
most important work is the work on yourselves. Through these 34 years,
every single day without stopping I remember and recall my adventure on
Apparition hill in those days. And it's perfectly clear to me that only
if I live that, only then will I be a child of God.
Agnostics, atheists maybe ask what has all this to do with me. It's nice to have a beautiful life, have money, have
this/that but I would say to you no riches or fortune in the world, not
even a title in this world, nothing you materially created can be
compared to the happiness that you feel at the moment when you are able
to see Our Lady coming. That is something which surpasses the human
mind. Therefore there won't ever be a logical conclusion as to whether
Our Lady is appearing or not. That is something you feel with your
senses. Some people say intuition, yes. You feel and then you receive a confirmation. Either you believe it or not.
I had not been on the hill I wouldn't have believed. That's the way my
brain works. If I hadn't seen that, felt that, been given a confirmation
from the other side that completely gives the answer to my being and
shows me that that 'something' exists, I wouldn't have believed. That's
why I really feel together with the people here and for all those who
can't believe, there is a method and that's why Our Lady came. She is
the teacher. Like in medicine, we have workshops, there is a theory
about a medication but then there is a workshop where you are taught
what dosage to give, how to administer it, what are its side-effects.
And it's very same here in Medjugorje, Our Lady's spiritual school. I am
the witness. Pray, pray,pray.
I pray now a lot. A little bit about my day. I
get up around 4am, pray maybe 5 rosaries, then I exercise, then read
Morning Prayer followed by a page from the Bible and then I have my
coffee. And that is the beginning of my day. Around noon
time, if time permits, I lock the door of my office and I pray the
rosary again before returning to my duties. Trust me, everything starts
changing, everything starts changing after the rosary. I am
the witness. In the afternoon ...I live in the country next to a
forest, I go for a walk with my dog and I pray 2 more rosaries. Since
doing this, I felt that a lot of my emotional problems at work just
melted. It's a magical remedy. A magical medication. This
is what I as a doctor can say to you, it is equally important as any
antibiotics and I am the witness. It is so.
read a lot and I see a lot. I see that the reception of Medjugorje in
the world goes up and down and it has to be so. The hill, the valley. When we are on the hill we are celebrating. When we are in the valley, we are purifying ourselves. But we are progressing. We are
attending spiritual school and we are making progress. Now we are in
elementary school, but all of us together. For me this is the most
important event in the history of the world after the walk of Jesus on
the earth. I believe that God came to shake us a bit and to wake us up
even if it's necessary to give us a slap and to say to us that God does
exist. When enough people in the world wake up, when we reach that level
of spiritual maturity, the whole world will be changed. You will see. We are
all witnesses of a phenomenal event in the history of mankind. When you
know that you are a child of God, you cannot hate anyone, there are no
enemies, there are no Catholics, Protestants Moslems or Jews, only
different ways to reach God. Our only task is to reach God, holding Our
Lady's hand with Jesus to God.
really believe that the visionaries are apostles, that they are
contemporary apostles to whom God gave to be channels for humankind to
receive the messages. They are authentic, spontaneous, normal and good
human beings. Sometimes, they are so tired that they need a break, that
we in our hearts, that we who were all the time taking from them, we
should give them something in return. Understanding that they are also
human beings,that they have spouses, children and that it's very
difficult to be witnesses of God and to be a family person. It's
difficult to always remain pure and sometimes there is some dust on them
and we should understand that they did not lose anything of their
authentic soul. That's why I think we should all help each other. I really believe that our Lord today put us all together. Thank you very much.
