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!

The Exaltation of the Holy Cross
Dear Family of Mary!
We adore You, O Christ, and we bless You, because by Your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world!
Our Lady speaks about the Cross:
Friday, August 31, 1984"I love very specially the Cross which you have providentially erected on Mount Krizevac. Go there more often and pray."
August 30, 1984 "Dear
children! The cross was also in God's plan when you built it. These
days, especially, go on the mountain and pray before the Cross. I need
your prayers. Thank you for having responded to my call."
September 12, 1985 "Dear
children! I wish to tell you that the Cross should be central these
days. Pray especially before the Cross from which great graces are
coming. Now in your homes make a special consecration to the Cross.
Promise that you will neither offend Jesus nor abuse the Cross. Thank
you for having responded to my call."
February 20, 1986 "Dear
children! The second message of these Lenten days is that you renew
prayer before the Cross. Dear children, I am giving you special graces
and Jesus is giving you special gifts from the Cross. Take them and
live! Reflect on Jesus' Passion and in your life be united with Jesus!
Thank you for having responded to my call."
September 11, 1986 "Dear
children! For these days while you are joyfully celebrating the Cross, I
desire that your cross also would be a joy for you. Especially, dear
children, pray that you may be able to accept sickness and suffering
with love the way Jesus accepted them. Only that way shall I be able
with joy to give out to you the graces and healings which Jesus is
permitting me. Thank you for having responded to my call."
March 25, 1997 "Dear
children! Today, in a special way, I invite you to take the cross in
the hands and to meditate on the wounds of Jesus. Ask of Jesus to heal
your wounds, which you, dear children, during your life sustained
because of your sins or the sins of your parents. Only in this way, dear
children, you will understand that the world is in need of healing of
faith in God the Creator. By Jesus' passion and death on the cross, you
will understand that only through prayer you, too, can become true
apostles of faith; when, in simplicity and prayer, you live faith which
is a gift. Thank you for having responded to my call."
March 25, 2013 "Dear
children! In this time of grace I call you to take the cross of my
beloved Son Jesus in your hands and to meditate on His passion and
death. May your suffering be united in His suffering and love will win,
because He who is love gave Himself out of love to save each of you.
Pray, pray, pray until love and peace begin to reign in your hearts.
Thank you for having responded to my call."
February 25, 2016 "Dear
children! In this time of grace, I am calling all of you to conversion.
Little children, you love little and pray even less. You are lost and
do not know what your goal is. Take the cross, look at Jesus and follow
Him. He gives Himself to you to the death on the cross, because He loves
you. Little children, I am calling you: return to prayer with the heart
so as to find hope and the meaning of your existence, in prayer. I am
with you and am praying for you. Thank you for having responded to my
October 2, 2009 "Dear
Children, As I look at you, my heart seizes with pain. Where are you
going my children? Have you sunk so deeply into sin that you do not know
how to stop yourselves? You justify yourselves with sin and live
according to it. Kneel down beneath the Cross and look at my Son. He
conquered sin and died so that you, my children, may live. Permit me to
help you not to die but to live with my Son forever. Thank you!"

"Dear children! With motherly love I implore you to give me your hands,
permit me to lead you. I, as a mother, desire to save you from
restlessness, despair and eternal exile. My Son, by His death on the
Cross, showed how much He loves you; He sacrificed Himself for your sake
and the sake of your sins. Do not keep rejecting His sacrifice and do
not keep renewing His sufferings with your sins. Do not keep shutting
the doors of Heaven to yourselves. My children, do not waste time.
Nothing is more important than unity in my Son. I will help you because
the Heavenly Father is sending me so that, together, we can show the way
of grace and salvation to all those who do not know Him. Do not be hard
hearted. Have confidence in me and adore my Son. My children, you
cannot be without the shepherds. May they be in your prayers every day.
March 02, 2013 "Dear
children! Anew, in a motherly way, I am calling you not to be of a hard
heart. Do not shut your eyes to the warnings which the Heavenly Father
sends to you out of love. Do you love Him above all else? Do you repent
for having often forgotten that the Heavenly Father, out of His great
love, sent his Son to redeem us by the Cross? Do you repent for not yet
having accepted the message? My children, do not resist the love of my
Son. Do not resist hope and peace. Along with your prayer and fasting,
by His cross, my Son will cast away the darkness that wants to surround
you and come to rule over you. He will give you the strength for a new
life. Living it according to my Son, you will be a blessing and a hope
to all those sinners who wander in the darkness of sin. My children,
keep vigil. I, as a mother, am keeping vigil with you. I am especially
praying and watching over those whom my Son called to be light-bearers
and carriers of hope for you - for your shepherds. Thank you."

"Dear children, with a motherly love and a motherly patience I am
looking at your ceaseless wandering and how lost you are. That is why I
am with you. I desire to help you to first find and come to know
yourself, so that, then, you would be able to recognize and to admit
everything that does not permit you to get to know the love of the
Heavenly Father, honestly and wholeheartedly. My children, the Father
comes to be known through the cross. Therefore, do not reject the cross.
Strive to comprehend and accept it with my help. When you will be able
to accept the cross you will also understand the love of the Heavenly
Father; you will walk with my Son and with me; you will differ from
those who have not come to know the love of the Heavenly Father, those
who listen to Him but do not understand Him, those who do not walk with
Him - who have not come to know Him. I desire for you to come to know
the truth of my Son and to be my apostles; that, as children of God, you
may rise above the human way of thinking and always, and in everything,
seek God's way of thinking, anew. My children, pray and fast that you
may be able to recognize all of this which I am seeking of you. Pray for
your shepherds and long to come to know the love of your Heavenly
Father, in union with them. Thank you."
PS. The pilgrimage that Mike Nolan is leading on October 3 - 14
still has room. Pray about coming!! The air fares are quite low. If you
have been waiting for the right time to go to Medjugorje, this may be
