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!

Feast of the Holy Rosary!
Dear Family of Mary!
April 25, 2001 "Dear
children! Also today, I call you to prayer. Little children, prayer
works miracles. When you are tired and sick and you do not know the
meaning of your life, take the Rosary and pray; pray until prayer
becomes for you a joyful meeting with your Savior. I am with you, little
children, and I intercede and pray for you. Thank you for having
responded to my call."
On this beautiful
feast, I want to share a little more about the healing of Darren which
we shared on the most recent Fruit of Medjugorje episode, #234.
I believe that
Darren's healing has everything to do with the Rosary and the power of
the Rosary. He and his mother, Catherine, have been coming to Medjugorje
for years, often staying for months at a time. They come every night to
the Evening Rosary before Holy Mass. Their life has been steeped in the
Rosary. Their relationship with the Lord is formed by the Rosary, Holy
Mass and Adoration. And so, Darren's healing has everything to do with
Here is a sharing from Traci, who met Darren in Medjugorje during her pilgrimage in March/April of 2016:
I wanted to share a few things I witnessed about Darren during our pilgrimage March /April of this year.
whole group did the St. Louis de Montfort 33 Day Consecration to Mary
together. We all met at the Blue Cross with the small statue of Our Lady
to finish it. Just as we were saying the consecration Darren arrived
out of the blue pushed by a man named Kevin. I thought Kevin was a
priest so I asked him for a blessing but he said he was only discerning
for the priesthood (We should pray for him!).
came to kiss Our Ladies statue, so the young guys in our group, along
with Kevin, literally had to pick up Darren out of his chair and carry
him to the statue.
was not able to straighten himself completely and his legs stayed in a
sort of seated position. I noticed his legs, specially the ankles and
calves were very atrophied, along with the thighs and back. He was not
able to stand in one place even for a few seconds and it took some care
to lift him out of the wheelchair as he could not hold any of his
The thing I
remember the most though was this. One day, we were standing by St.
James and like usual, the boys in our group were wrestling and playing
around together. As a few of us were talking with Catherine and Darren,
Darren kept looking past us. His mother said he was interested in the
boys playing. That he wanted to go play with the boys.
Well now he can. Praise be Jesus and Mary!
thing. Darren had a hard time with his neck also. You can see in some of
the old videos how they help him to receive the Eucharist by holding
his head back a bit. He really is much, much changed from when I last
saw him! How beautiful : ) Lets keep praying for him!
We have witnessed a
miracle of love. Darren loves Our Lady. And she loves him. Through that
love, Darren grew. His heart grew! And the power of Our Lady's
intercession for him was able to work miracles in him! Darren teaches us
all about being a child in the care of "the Mother". Our Lady wants us
all to experience healing. She is with us to help us. Through the prayer
of the Rosary, we can be with Mary, and she can be with us. Our
closeness to her will change everything.
