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!
children! Today I wish to tell you that God wants to send you trials
which you can overcome by prayer. God is testing you through daily
chores. Now pray to peacefully withstand every trial. From everything
through which God tests you come out more open to God and approach Him
with love. Thank you for having responded to my call."
I pulled this
message from my box of messages for us today. Our Lady must want to talk
to us about trials. We all are enduring trials in these days. It is
part of our Christian life. Because we love and live out our commitment
to love our families, communities, neighbors and countries, we make
ourselves open to trials. But in this way we can help Jesus to show
others that He loves them. Our Lady doesn't seem to be worried about
trials. "Now pray to peacefully withstand every trail." She tells us we
will come out stronger from them. Not to worry! God is in charge!
Here are five more
messages in which Our Lady talks to us about trials. We could use these
messages for our Rosary today, and let her teach us how to triumph over
our difficulties through prayer and love.
Holy Thursday, April 19, 1984 To Jelena:
going to reveal a spiritual secret to you: if you want to be stronger
than evil, make yourself a plan of personal prayer. Take a certain time
in the morning, read a text from Holy Scripture, anchor the Divine word
in your heart, and strive to live it during the day, particularly during
the moment of trials. In this way, you will be stronger than evil."
March 25 2010 "Dear
children! Also today I desire to call you all to be strong in prayer
and in the moments when trials attack you. Live your Christian vocation
in joy and humility and witness to everyone. I am with you and I carry
you all before my Son Jesus, and He will be your strength and support.
Thank you for having responded to my call."
October 2, 2008 "Dear
children; Again I call you to faith. My motherly heart desires for your
heart to be open, so that it could say to your heart: believe. My
children, only faith will give you strength in life's trials. It will
renew your soul and open the way of hope. I am with you. I gather you
around me because I desire to help you, so that you can help your
neighbors to discover faith, which is the only joy and happiness of
life. Thank you."
September 2, 2010 "Dear
children; I am beside you because I desire to help you to overcome
trials, which this time of purification puts before you. My children,
one of those is not to forgive, and not to ask for forgiveness. Every
sin offends love and distances you from it and love is my Son.
Therefore, my children, if you desire to walk with me towards the peace
of God's love, you must learn to forgive and to ask for forgiveness.

children; Today I call you to be born anew in prayer and through the
Holy Spirit, to become a new people with my Son; a people who knows that
if they have lost God, they have lost themselves; a people who knows
that, with God, despite all sufferings and trials, they are secure and
saved. I call you to gather into God's family and to be strengthened
with the Father's strength. As individuals, my children, you cannot stop
the evil that wants to begin to rule in this world and to destroy it.
But, according to God's will, all together, with my Son, you can change
everything and heal the world. I call you to pray with all your heart
for your shepherds, because my Son chose them. Thank you."
Mother, thank you for showing us that "despite all sufferings and trials, [we] are secure and saved." Thank you for teaching us how to live in God and His peace.
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 it!!
