Special August 15, 2016 A.D.
In this year, the Year of Mercy, Our Lady has been revealing more about Herself. These “private revelations” about Our Lady tell us more about who She is. As we have often said, Our Lady is here to point us to Herself, to make us fall in love with Her. Then when our hearts are ready, She will make us know Jesus in the right way.

We will know the Way, the Truth and the Life, by returning to Her Heart. On January 2, 2016 Our Lady said:
Then on February 2, 2016 She said:
Having revealed Herself as Mother, Our Lady reveals more on March 2, 2016:
We know She is truly Mother by giving Her Son “the human.” Our Lady then gives another “private revelation” about Herself on April 2, 2016:
The following month, Our Lady tells us the position She speaks from. On June 2, 2016:
It was at this point that we re-released the, This is My Time shirts. We took Our Lady's words literally, as a green-light to let everyone know about Her position as Mother. Though we had told of this for years, it was very apparent that now Our Lady was revealing Herself to us in a special way, and that we were to reveal to others what She was revealing to us about Herself. Many people responded and started an active live work of evangelization in their everyday lives. The following month, on July 2, 2016, Our Lady reveals more of Her purpose:
Finally, the next month, August 2, 2016, Our Lady gives another “private revelation” about Herself:
Mary speaks with a position of authority. Her authority we know is Queen, but the authority She is speaking to us today in Medjugorje is the authority of mother. Mary is your mother. Medjugorje visionary Marija once told the Caritas Community in the Bedroom of Apparitions that Our Lady is real, that She is not a vapor. Marija told the Community in the Bedroom, “It is possible for me to reach out and touch Our Lady.”
Our Lady is appearing in a real, physical way, to a world where violence, family strife, the constant threat of epidemics, and the scourge of abomination that assail from every direction.
“To those in the world who still believe, I say, the salvation of the world is in the hands of Mary…”2
Our hope is Our Lady. This is Her time, a time when the Father is granting everything to Her, because She is the Mother. There can be no question; there can be no mistake that the apparitions of Our Lady are not a forgery. They are not a fairy tale. Mary is real. She is on the earth. Her Assumption into Heaven is hope for us, because She is physically among us in a real living presence, so that we might fall in love with Her, and when our hearts are ready, She might reveal to us the Heart of Her Son Jesus, the Heart which beat next to Hers as It slept upon Her chest as an infant.
The Heart of Her Son may be revealed to you in a year, it may take a lifetime, but, you are safe with Our Lady, the Mother of the World.
“…Mary… our sweetness, and still our hope, we pray you into our hearts…”3
