Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! Give thanks to God with me for the gift of my being with you. Pray, little children, and live God's commandments that it may be good for you on earth. Today, on this day of grace, I desire to give you my motherly blessing of peace and of my love. I intercede for you with my Son and call you to persevere in prayer so that, with you, I can realize my plans. Thank you for having responded to my call."
This message contains our marching orders for the next year! It is a message filled with hope:
Our Lady tells us to give thanks with her to God for the gift of her presence with us. She is with us in an extraordinary way in Medjugorje. You can feel her close to you as you go about your ordinary activities here. She is with us through her messages which guide us in our prayer and in our daily conversion. And so we live each day with Mary in Medjugorje. And we carry her with us to our homes where we need her so very much.
Our Lady gives us very good advice: Pray and live God's commandments! Those commandments are the way to live a good life on earth. If we live the commandments we will build a happy life on earth! And a good way to learn to live the commandments is by going to confession. When we prepare for confession we review the 10 Commandments to discover our sins, and in Confession the priest helps us to find ways to live them. We will never regret living the commandments of God. Each day we will see our lives becoming better and better!
Our Lady gave us her motherly blessing of peace and her love, and this is what gives us the strength and joy to continue in our lives! Our Mother cares about us, and blesses us!
And finally Mary asks us to pray so that her plans may be realized. She has said this many times, but they mean more each time she says it. In these days her plan is looking more and more like the only plan that will bring peace and hope in this world. We want her plans to be realized!!
So this message gives us a good idea of how to move forward: With Mary and immersed in her love, living the Commandments of God, we will pray for Our Lady's intentions. We will help her to build up the Church in love and hope and bring about her Triumph.
Yesterday was a lovely day! After the intensity of the 35th Anniversary, we were able to spend a quiet Sunday. We prerecorded two Daily Rosary's so that we would be free to go to Christina and Joe's wedding on Monday night! We went to English Mass at 12:00 pm! Fr. Leon gave a wonderful homily. We are so fed by the homilies at English Mass!! (You can hear his homily on our webpage, English Mass Homily for 06/26/16)
Then we went with our pilgrimage group to the Kravice Waterfalls. I had never been there, and I was amazed at their beauty. The water was icy cold, and I soaked my poor foot in it! It was a comfort. I loved watching everyone playing in the water, and climbing the rocks. I think God loves it when we play! After the intensity of the Anniversary, it was a blessing to rest and play. Here are some pictures of our group at the falls!



Incredibly beautiful!  The falls never run dry, and thunder on and on. You can feel the power and plenitude of God's creation there.  It was healing to rest near the falling water, letting it fill us with awe! 

The App has been updated and you can update through your app store (Apple or Google). There are more videos available now on the Mary TV App!! Thank you Matt!!
Tomorrow we will not stream a Daily Rosary, but replace it with the live stream of Christina and Joe's wedding. It begins at 4:00 pm Medjugorje time (10:00 am EDT). You are all invited!! Christina and Joe would be honored to have your presence at their wedding! And please pray for them, that God will bless them with a long and fruitful married life!
We carry you all in our hearts and continue to pray for you. Thank you for joining us on our pilgrimage. Your presence is also a comfort for us and a joy! Our Lady is with us all to bless us!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
