Friday after Ash Wednesday
"Dear children! I thank you for all the prayers. Thank you for all the sacrifices. I wish to tell you, dear children, to renew the messages which I am giving you. Especially live the fast, because by fasting you will achieve and cause me the joy of the whole plan, which God is planning here in Medjugorje, being fulfilled. Thank you for having responded to my call." (September 26, 1985)
"Medjugorje is the spiritual center of the world."
Saint John Paul II
