This blog was started on July 21st, 2015, after my Mary, Our Mother blog had mysteriously disappeared. I will post only Marian items, especially regarding Medjugorje and other Marian apparitions. Thank you for reading this blog. May it give great glory to God through the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

Mary TV August 4, 2016 Reflection - Youth Festival Day 4!!

St. John Vianney (Patron of Priests!)
Dear Family of Mary!
is Day 4 of the Youth Festival! The time goes by so quickly.
Testimonies, Rosaries, Holy Mass, Meditations, Adoration, Dancing and
Singing for the Lord, it all flows into one joyous moment! Thank you,
dearest Gospa, for calling the youth to Medjugorje to be with you!!
On Tuesday evening, at the International Mass, the priest began his homily with these words. He is making an important point:
and sisters, before I break the Word that we just heard that we may be
fed with the Word of God, as we look at this sea that we saw as we began
the procession, this beautiful sea from up here at the altar, I wanted
to say to all of you, "This is the Catholic Church! This is the Church!"
This is the Church that Jesus Christ established when He said to Peter,
"This is the rock, and upon this rock I will establish my Church and
the gates of hell will not prevail over it."
we look at the brother priests behind me, around me, who come from all
the nations, and looking at all of you with your flags, and we realize
we were just looking at the ugly scenes in so-called united Europe, at
the European championship where there were so many flags too. But there
we saw violence, there we saw ugly things, because not everyone is
rooted in Christ. But I see all of these flags and it is impossible to
have this in other places. Only Christ is making this possible!! (Homily
of Holy Mass, Aug 2, 2016 Medjugorje)
The joy, unity and peace that is
experienced at the Youth Festival in Medjugorje, is the fruit of
presence of Jesus and Mary! The love that is shared for all peoples from
all over the world is because all are gathered in the name of Christ.
This is the only way such peace and love could exist. It is a sign for
us all. (Of course, World Youth Day was also such a sign, in Poland! Two
beautiful signs of the future in one summer!!)
I want to mention the end of the message given through Mirjana on Tuesday:
children, anew, in a motherly way I am imploring you, pray for the
chosen ones of my Son, for their blessed hands - for your shepherds -
that they may preach my Son with all the more love and in this way bring
about conversions. Thank you." (August 2, 2016)
are well over 400 priests at the Youth Festival this year. They are
there to offer the sacraments to the young people, especially
Confession. They bring Christ to the young people! They preach Christ,
and through Confession they bring about conversions. They work very
hard, listening to each person, one by one, and addressing all their
needs. It is an incredible ministry of love. This is where the peace
flows in Medjugorje!!
are some pictures of the shepherds ministering to their sheep this
week. Let's give thanks for them, and pray for them with all our hearts.
Thank you Jesus for our priests. Bless our priests!
Pray for these beautiful priests!!! St. John Vianney! Pray for them!!
