Dear Family of Mary!
 
August 25, 2016
"Dear children! Today I desire to share Heavenly joy with you. You, little children, open the door of your heart so that hope, peace and love, which only God gives, may grow in your heart. Little children, you are too bound to the earth and earthly things, that is why, Satan is rolling you like the wind rolls the waves of the sea. Therefore, may the chain of your life be prayer with the heart and Adoration of my Son Jesus. Give over your future to Him so that, in Him, you may be joy and an example with your lives to others. Thank you for having responded to my call."
 
Our Lady tells us that we are "too bound to the earth and earthly things." Satan is rolling us like the wind rolls the waves of the sea. She recommends that we pray with the heart and adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. She wants us to give over our future to Him.
 
I want to suggest that she has given us another tool to use in grounding ourselves in Jesus, and letting go of the world. That tool is fasting. Every Wednesday and Friday she asks us to fast on bread and water. Today is Wednesday! If we don't want to get rolled over like the waves of the sea, we might try to fast as she asks.
 
Here is a prayer that Fr. Slavko wrote for the beginning of a fast day. It might help us as we begin our fast!
 
O Lord God, You are the Creator of the entire world and my Creator! Today I thank You for having so wonderfully arranged the world. Thank You for the fruitfulness that you have bestowed on mother earth for it to bear such a vast variety of fruit. Thank You for the food prepared from the fruits of the earth. Father, I rejoice with Your creatures; I rejoice today with all the fruit and I give You thanks. O Lord, thank You for our need for the daily bread and for the need of daily drink.
 
Father, thank You for having created my organism to be able to use the fruit of the earth so as to grow and to serve You. Thank you, Father, for all those who, by their labor provide new possibilities for life on earth. Thank you for all those who have much and give to others. Thank You for all those who hunger for the Heavenly Bread as they eat the bread of this earth. Father, I also thank You for all those who have nothing to eat today because I am convinced You will send them help through the goodness of others.
 
Father, today I resolve to fast. In doing so, I do not despise your creatures. I do not renounce them; I only want to rediscover their worth. I have decided to fast because Your prophets fasted, because Your Son Jesus Christ fasted and because His Apostles and Disciples fasted. I especially decide to fast because Your servant and our Mother, Mary, also fasted. She calls me to fast: "Dear children! Today I call on you to begin fasting with the heart!" (10/20/1984)
 
Father, I present this day of fasting to You. Through fasting, I want to listen to Your Word and to live it more fully. During this day, I want to learn to be turned more toward You, despite everything that surrounds me. With this fast, which I take freely upon myself, I pray to You for all those who are hungry and who, because of their hunger, have become aggressive. I offer this fast to You for peace in the world....
 
Mary, You were free in Your heart and bound to nothing except the Father's Will. Obtain for me the grace of a joyful fast today, in which my heart will be able to sing a song of thanksgiving with You. Obtain for me the grace that my decision to fast may be firm and lasting. I offer the difficulties and the hunger I am going to feel today for all people. Mary, Pray for me. Let every evil and temptation of Satan be kept away from me today through Your intercession and through the power of Your protection. Mary, teach me to fast and to pray so that day by day, I may become more and more like You and Your son, Jesus Christ, in the Holy Spirit. Amen. (Fr. Slavko Barbaric. "Fast with the Heart". Par 12.1)
 
May we grow less bound to the earth and more bound to heaven on this day!!
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PPS. We are approaching the canonization of Mother Teresa of Calcutta. I feel that Mother's intercession will be very powerful for us on her canonization day. Let's prepare our hearts for that day by asking for her intercession and thanking her for her great fidelity to God's plan for her life. She is a true hero for us all!
 
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, you allowed the thirsting love of Jesus on the Cross to become a living flame within you, and so became the light of His love to all. Obtain from the Heart of Jesus (here make your request). Teach me to allow Jesus to penetrate and possess my whole being so completely that my life, too, may radiate His light and love to others. Amen.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, Cause of Our Joy, pray for me.

Dear Family of Mary!
 
"Dear Children! Again today in a special way I want to invite you to live my messages. Dear children, do not just speak about my messages but live my messages. Be my living sign, a sign of my presence here and irradiate others with your presence here. Pray dear children through this time more. Pray together with me for my intentions. Follow me, dear children, live my messages. Fear not, I am with you and intercede for all of you before my Son. Thank you, dear children, also today, for having responded to my call."  
August 26, 2016, to Ivan on Mt. Podbrdo
Ivan Dragicevic met with his prayer group last Friday evening around the statue on Apparition Hill. Our Lady appeared to him and gave this message. There were many people gathered together to greet Our Lady. How wonderful it is to be present when she comes!!
 
Our Lady speaks to us very clearly. She wants us to live her messages. She doesn't mind if we talk about them, but the real focus for her is on living her messages. She is very much like Jesus, who cautioned his followers to live what He taught them:
 
"Why do you call me `Lord, Lord,' and not do what I tell you? Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep, and laid the foundation upon rock; and when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house, and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But he who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation; against which the stream broke, and immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great." (Luke 6:46-49)
 
Though Our Lady's words are not on a par with the Word of God, she has come to us as a messenger from Heaven. And she is our Heavenly Mother. Jesus gave her to us from the Cross. So her messages are important. I believe they are a great help for us in living Jesus' Words. Prayer, fasting, Scripture, Eucharist and Confession...these are basic ways to learn from and follow Jesus.
 
We want to build our house on rock, on the Rock who is Christ. We want to live in such a way that we will be signs of Our Lady, who has come to bring us to her Son. We want to shine out with the peace and joy we have received from Our Lady in Medjugorje, so that others will turn to her presence and receive the graces of this time.
 
"Follow me, dear children, live my messages. Fear not, I am with you and intercede for all of you before my Son." This very familiar call from Our Lady is filled with comfort and hope. "Follow me" - it is a joy for children to follow their Mother. "Live my messages" - Our Lady's messages make our lives happy, productive and healthy. "I am with you." - This is the greatest gift of Medjugorje, the knowledge and experience of Our Lady's presence with us!! "[I] intercede for all of you before my Son." - we have a sure hope that Our Lady's prayers for us will be heard. Such a firm foundation to our hope in the future!
 
Thank you, dearest Mother, for being with us, praying for us, leading us, and teaching us along our way to eternal life. We love you!!!
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

The Passion of St. John the Baptist
 
Dear Family of Mary!
 
Our Lady gave us this incredible message on Thursday, August 25, 2016:
 
"Dear children! Today I desire to share Heavenly joy with you. You, little children, open the door of your heart so that hope, peace and love, which only God gives, may grow in your heart. Little children, you are too bound to the earth and earthly things, that is why, Satan is rolling you like the wind rolls the waves of the sea. Therefore, may the chain of your life be prayer with the heart and Adoration of my Son Jesus. Give over your future to Him so that, in Him, you may be joy and an example with your lives to others. Thank you for having responded to my call." (August 25, 2016)
 
Why is it that in these difficult, violent times Our Lady would call us to heavenly joy? Why would she want to share heavenly joy with us? What is it about God's joy that is relevant to us here on earth?
 
I want to say that Heavenly Joy is everything for us in these days. God's joy is the power that will see us through all our trials and holy labors. God's joy is the truth that underlies everything. God is love, a love so deep and powerful it cannot be stopped. And that love is aimed at us! We are the recipients of God's love every moment of every day. And that love is joy for us! Eternal, everlasting joy! This is our future, our legacy and our destiny. So God's heavenly joy is everything for us!
 
Our Lady has spoken of joy many times in her messages. I have collected five of them for us to use in our rosaries for meditation today. We can meditate on the August 25, 2016 message on the opening beads, and use each of these messages for the five decades. We want to let God's joy penetrate our beings. Let's begin to pray on it!

May 25, 1988 "Dear children! I am inviting you to a complete surrender to God. Pray, little children, that satan may not carry you about like the branches in the wind. Be strong in God. I desire that through you the whole world may get to know the God of joy. By your life bear witness for God's joy. Do not be anxious nor worried. God himself will help you and show you the way. I desire that you love all men with my love. Only in that way can love reign over the world. Little children, you are mine. I love you and want you to surrender to me so that I can lead you to God. Never cease praying so that satan cannot take advantage of you. Pray for the knowledge that you are mine. I bless you with blessings of joy. Thank you for having responded to my call."

October 25, 1997 "Dear children! Also today I am with you and I call all of you to renew yourselves by living my messages. Little children, may prayer be life for you and may you be an example to others. Little children, I desire for you to become carriers of peace and of God's joy to today's world without peace. That is why, little children, pray, pray, pray! I am with you and I bless you with my motherly peace. Thank you for having responded to my call."

October 25, 2015 "Dear children! Also today, my prayer is for all of you, especially for all those who have become hard of heart to my call. You are living in the days of grace and are not conscious of the gifts which God is giving to you through my presence. Little children, decide also today for holiness and take the example of the saints of this time and you will see that holiness is a reality for all of you. Rejoice in the love, little children, that in the eyes of God you are unrepeatable and irreplaceable, because you are God's joy in this world. Witness peace, prayer and love. Thank you for having responded to my call."
 
December 25, 2006  "Today is a great day of joy and peace. Rejoice with me. Little children, in a special way, I call you to holiness in your families. I desire, little children, that each of your families be holy and that God's joy and peace, which God sends you today in a special way, may come to rule and dwell in your families. Little children, open your hearts today on this day of grace, decide for God and put Him in the first place in your family. I am your Mother. I love you and give you my Motherly Blessing."

September 02, 2013 "Dear children, I love you all. All of you, all of my children, all of you are in my heart. All of you have my motherly love, and I desire to lead all of you to come to know God's joy. This is why I am calling you. I need humble apostles who, with an open heart, will accept the Word of God and help others to comprehend the meaning of their life along side God's word. To be able to do this my children, through prayer and fasting, you must learn to listen with the heart and to learn to keep submitting yourselves. You must learn to keep rejecting everything that distances you from God's word and to yearn only for that which draws you closer to it. Do not be afraid. I am here. You are not alone. I am imploring the Holy Spirit to renew and strengthen you. I am imploring the Holy Spirit that, as you help others, you too may be healed. I am imploring Him that, through Him, you may be God's children and my apostles."
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Dear Family of Mary!
 
July 25, 2016
"Dear children! I am looking at you and I see you lost; and you do not have prayer or joy in your heart. Return to prayer, little children, and put God in the first place and not man. Do not lose the hope which I am carrying to you. May this time, little children, every day, be a greater seeking of God in the silence of your heart; and pray, pray, pray until prayer becomes joy for you. Thank you for having responded to my call."
 
Since today we receive another message, I thought we could reflect on last month's message one more time. As I read this message I see that Our Lady has given us everything we need to endure the difficulties of our time.
 
"Dear children! I am looking at you and I see you lost; and you do not have prayer or joy in your heart." How often do we feel lost, forget to pray, or lose our joy? It is pretty easy to get thrown off course. Our world comes barreling in on us through the media constantly. Our fears mount, we question our faith, and we get depressed. So fast!
 
"Return to prayer, little children, and put God in the first place and not man." Step one: to save ourselves from this downward spiral, we must pray, and in prayer put God on the throne of our hearts. NOT MAN! NOT THE THINGS OF MAN! NO WAY!
 
"Do not lose the hope which I am carrying to you." Like a child sent off to school with his lunch money in hand, Our Lady tells us to hang on to our hope, the hope she has brought to us. Without hope we will be prey to all sorts of sadness.
 
"May this time, little children, every day, be a greater seeking of God in the silence of your heart..." Instead of surrounding ourselves with the constant din of the news and entertainment media, we can seek out silence. And in that silence, we can seek God. He will be found.
 
"...and pray, pray, pray until prayer becomes joy for you." Once we have found God in the silence of our hearts, we can just stay there, and talk to Him for as long as we want. He will listen. He always listens. And He will solve all our problems, calm our fears, show us His plan for us, and bring us joy!!
 
That is all we need to make it through this stormy time.
 
Thank you, dearest Mother, for responding to our call, and coming to us in Medjugorje!
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph,

Conversion is No Guarantee

August 24, 2016 A.D.

Tomorrow, Our Lady will give a message for the world through Marija. The purpose of Her messages, are to help us to convert and to help us to convert others. But, conversion is not a guaranteed thing.

 
Pilgrims in Medjugorje
Pilgrims praying during the evening service in Medjugorje. Our Lady asked for this evening prayer service, of the two Rosaries, Apparition time, and Holy Mass. This structured prayer helps to maintain the grace of conversion for those who visit Medjugorje, that they can experience conversion.

Conversion is not guaranteed. The initial conversion usually comes as a free gift, but it takes work to continue conversion. Our prayers help to maintain this gift. A Friend of Medjugorje wrote 19 years ago:

“…We must realize conversion of the heart is a gift, a special present, given through prayer.

December 25, 1989
“…I intercede for you to God for Him to give you the gift of conversion of the heart…”

Conversion is as delicate as a flower. It must be nourished and watered. Many who followed Jesus turned from Him, never believing they would. We have seen the same in the Medjugorje movement. We encourage you to convert. We invite you to go deeper into the spiritual life, to strike out all the world’s distractions, and to commit to daily conversion…”1

It takes a commitment. Tomorrow, August 25, Our Lady will have words for us, words for our conversion. This is Her time, a time given to Her by God to help us. Conversion is no guarantee; we have to pray everyday to maintain it. If we slack off, if we decide to become comfortable, we are as a Friend of Medjugorje says, “Man never stands still. He is always moving, either towards God, or away from God.” Your conversion is not set in stone. Just as many turned from Jesus never believing they ever would, we should never take it for granted that something like that would never happen to us. Be in prayer today, all through the night, and into tomorrow, for your heart to be prepared to listen to what Our Lady will have to tell us, whether encouragement, or correction, so that our conversion will continue to grow each day.

Dear Family of Mary!
 
"...My Son, when He was little, often said to me that there will be many who will love me and call me 'mother'. Among you, I feel love. Thank you..." (August 2, 2016)
 
Our Lady just snuck into the August 2 message this little peak into her life with Jesus, when He was a little boy. Isn't it beautiful?
 
Imagine Mother Mary walking down the road with little Jesus, maybe they are holding hands, maybe they are carrying things from the market in Nazareth. Anyway, they are just walking and talking a bit. And the little Jesus looks up at His Mother, and says something like, "You know, Mom, there will be many who will love you and call you 'mother'." I am sure Our Lady had no idea what he was talking about. There were just the three of them in the family. She may have smiled, and wondered what He meant. She obviously tucked His words away in her memory and her heart for a later day.
 
And she says that Jesus "often" said those words to her. He knew something. He knew that He was going to acquire many brothers and sisters and that those "spiritual" siblings would look to Our Lady as their Mother. He knew it was the plan of His Father to build a family around Him, a family that would become a Kingdom. And He knew that that Kingdom would need a Queen. Actually, a Queen Mother! And He knew that His Mother would be the one!
 
Obviously He knew this, because when He was dying on the Cross, He made it official. "Behold your Mother," he told John. "Behold your son," He told Mary. Jesus opened up His family to all of us sinful, unruly, needy people who would be attracted to Him, fed by Him, forgiven by Him, and restored by Him. And we would all need a Mother. Not just any mother, but "The Mother".
 
Imagine now that Mother Mary is walking down the road with you, the little you that needs to hold her hand and be guided and cared for by her. Imagine her looking down at you and smiling, and telling you this little story from her heart: "...My Son, when He was little, often said to me that there will be many who will love me and call me 'mother'. [With] you, I feel love. Thank you..."
 
We are some of the one's Jesus was talking about. We call Mary our Mother. We love her. And she feels our love. It is the love of mother and child. There is no stronger bond, no stronger connection than this love. Our Lady has bonded with us, and we with her. She is our Mother now. We are helping to build that family that Jesus foresaw.
 
Pretty neat!
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! As a mother, I desire to be of help to you. With my motherly love, I desire to help you to open your heart and to put my Son in the first place in it. Through your love for my Son and through your prayer, I desire for God's light to illuminate you and God's mercy to fill you. In this way, I desire for the darkness, and the shadow of death which wants to encompass and mislead you, to be driven away. I desire for you to feel the joy of the blessing of God's promise. You, children of man, you are God's children - you are my children. Therefore, my children, set out on the ways on which my love leads you, teaches you humility and wisdom, and finds the way to the Heavenly Father. Pray with me for those who do not accept me and do not follow me - those who, because of hardness of their hearts, cannot feel the joy of humility, devotion, peace and love - the joy of my Son. Pray that your shepherds, with their blessed hands, may always give you the joy of God's blessing. Thank you." March 18, 2014

Our Lady is calling us to embrace the mercy of God, to be filled with His light and joy. She wants the shadow of death to be driven away from us. She wants our eternal salvation.
 
St. Faustina was given the task of praying for souls, that they would choose eternal salvation, found in the great mercy of God. She was told by Jesus that even at the very last moment, souls could be saved through His mercy. She prayed for dying souls, and witnessed many such rescues by Divine Mercy.
 
Here is her account of such situations:
 
1698 l often attend upon the dying and through entreaties obtain for them trust in God's mercy, and I implore God for an abundance of divine grace, which is always victorious. God's mercy sometimes touches the sinner at the last moment in a wondrous and mysterious way.
 
Outwardly, it seems as if everything were lost, but it is not so. The soul, illumined by a ray of God's powerful final grace, turns to God in the last moment with such a power of love that, in an instant, it receives from God forgiveness of sin and punishment, while outwardly it shows no sign either of repentance or of contrition, because souls [at that stage] no longer react to external things. Oh, how beyond comprehension is God's mercy!
 
But-horror!- there are also souls who voluntarily and consciously reject and scorn this grace! Although a person is at the point of death, the merciful God gives the soul that interior vivid moment, so that if the soul is willing, it has the possibility of returning to God. But sometimes, the obduracy in souls is so great that consciously they choose hell; they [thus] make useless all the prayers that other souls offer to God for them and even the efforts of God Himself...(Diary 1698)
 
St. Faustina's words are comforting, but also alarming. There are souls that will not accept God's love, even at the cost of eternal damnation. "Pray with me for those who do not accept me and do not follow me - those who, because of hardness of their hearts, cannot feel the joy of humility, devotion, peace and love - the joy of my Son." These souls are at great risk. May we join St. Faustina and Our Lady in rescuing these souls through our own prayer and sacrifice. Time is short. Many are perishing. But we can help them up to the very end!
 
Let us stand with Our Lady. "You, children of man, you are God's children - you are my children. Therefore, my children, set out on the ways on which my love leads you, teaches you humility and wisdom, and finds the way to the Heavenly Father!"
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
