Dear Family of Mary!
June 25, 2007 "Dear children! Also today, with great joy in my heart, I call you to conversion. Little children, do not forget that you are all important in this great plan, which God leads through Medjugorje. God desires to convert the entire world and to call it to salvation and to the way towards Himself, who is the beginning and the end of every being. In a special way, little children, from the depth of my heart, I call you all to open yourselves to this great grace that God gives you through my presence here. I desire to thank each of you for the sacrifices and prayers. I am with you and I bless you all. Thank you for having responded to my call."
The reality of the shrine in today's world is so important that the Holy Father has moved "Shrines" from the Congregation for the Clergy to the Congregation for New Evangelization. People receive there (at shrines) those things that they don't have at home. In many old Christian countries individual confession does not exist anymore. In many countries there is no Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament. In many countries there is no Way of the Cross any more. There is no Rosary anymore. In Britanie, in France, they told me that the last time they prayed the Way of the Cross was 30 years ago. And such dryness of sacred space obviously leads towards a crises of the faith.
"So to call, to invoke the Queen of Peace, the Mother of God, is important. It is this aspect of Medjugorje which is utterly important!!" Yes, Archbishop, we agree. We are living our lives for her now. And we long to be little spots of light in the world that point to Medjugorje where the light shines so brightly. May it be so!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
