and I will participate in the novena during our Daily Rosary as well.
We will share 5 messages for each day that will center on a particular
part of Our Lady's School. We will use these messages as meditations
before each decade of the Rosary. I will also include the messages in
my reflection, so that you can use them for your own prayer.
are really grateful to be able to participate in this novena in such a
tangible way. To pray with the parish, on the hill and at the church
in the evening, live over the internet, is a great blessing. Thank you
to all of you who pray for and support Mary TV! You are giving a great
gift to us all!
Day One - 35th Anniversary Novena
Prayer to the Queen of Peace
Mary, Mother of God and Our Mother, Queen of Peace! You came to us to lead us to God. Obtain for us the grace not only to say: "Be it done to me according to Your will!", but to live it, as You did.
Your hands we put our hands, so that You may lead us to Him amidst
these afflictions and woes. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
we will meditate on the amazing gift of Our Lady's presence in
Medjugorje for 35 years now! Who would have guessed she would be able
to come to us every day for all these years. God's mercy is very great.
Even Our Lady has been amazed!
May 25, 2016 "Dear
children! My presence is a gift from God for all of you and an
encouragement for conversion. Satan is strong and wants to put disorder
and unrest in your hearts and thoughts. Therefore, you, little
children, pray so that the Holy Spirit may lead you on the real way of
joy and peace. I am with you and intercede before my Son for you. Thank
you for having responded to my call."
Let us pray this Rosary in joy and gratitude that Our Lady is still with us!
The Joyful Mysteries
02, 2012 "Dear children, as my eyes are looking at you, my soul is
seeking those souls with whom it desires to be one - the souls who have
understood the importance of prayer for those of my children who have
not come to know the love of the Heavenly Father. I am calling you
because I need you. Accept the mission and do not be afraid, I will
strengthen you. I will fill you with my graces. With my love I will
protect you from the evil spirit. I will be with you. With my presence I
will console you in difficult moments. Thank you for your open hearts.
Pray for priests. Pray that the unity between my Son and them may be
all the stronger, that they may be one. Thank you."
25, 1995 "Dear children! Today I invite you to become missionaries of
my messages, which I am giving here through this place that is dear to
me. God has allowed me to stay this long with you and therefore, little
children, I invite you to live with love the messages I give and to
transmit them to the whole world, so that a river of love flows to
people who are full of hatred and without peace. I invite you, little
children, to become peace where there is no peace and light where there
is darkness, so that each heart accepts the light and the way of
salvation. Thank you for having responded to my call."
The Birth of Jesus:
25, 1991 "Dear children! Today on this great day which you have given
to me, I desire to bless all of you and to say: these days while I am
with you are days of grace. I desire to teach you and help you to walk
the way of holiness. There are many people who do not desire to
understand my messages and to accept with seriousness what I am saying.
But you I therefore call and ask that by your lives and by your daily
living you witness my presence. If you pray, God will help you to
discover the true reason for my coming. Therefore, little children, pray
and read the Sacred Scriptures so that through my coming you discover
the message in Sacred Scripture for you. Thank you for having responded
to my call."
The Presentation in the Temple
25, 1995 "Dear children! Today I invite you to prayer because only in
prayer can you understand my coming here. The Holy Spirit will
enlighten you to understand that you must convert. Little children, I
wish to make of you a most beautiful bouquet prepared for eternity but
you do not accept the way of conversion, the way of salvation that I am
offering you through these apparitions. Little children, pray, convert
your hearts and come closer to me. May good overcome evil. I love you
and bless you. Thank you for having responded to my call."
The Finding in the Temple
25, 2003 "Dear children! Also today I call you to pray for peace. Pray
with the heart, little children, and do not lose hope because God
loves His creatures. He desires to save you, one by one, through my
coming here. I call you to the way of holiness. Pray, and in prayer you
are open to God's will; in this way, in everything you do, you realize
God's plan in you and through you. Thank you for having responded to
Let us pray:
Mother Mary, we gather together to pray this novena, with deep
gratitude for your presence in our midst. You have come to show us the
way to heaven. The Heavenly Father has sent you to us to help us to
repent and return to Him. You are coming to be the bond between us and
the Heavenly Father, and to help us to love and serve His Son. You pray
with us for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, because you have told us
that when we have the Holy Spirit, we have everything. Therefore we
ask that during this Novena you will help us to bond with you and
through you with our Triune God who loves us so much. We ask that every
grace can be poured out upon our shepherds during these nine days,
that they will be strengthened and purified for the days ahead, these
most triumphant days of the Triumph of your Immaculate Heart! Thank
you, dearest Mother!!!
