Monthly Message to Mirjana 8/2/11

Become a new people with my Soon

Dear 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 [priests], because my Son chose them. Thank you

You will Lament for the Message

My eyes will always be upon you...

“Dear children, during this time multiply your prayers and go deeper into the messages that I have given. Tonight when you go home, pray the Joyful Mysteries in front of the crucifix.”

Our Lady gave this message on 2/27/89, but has recently led me to it for my private prayer. Through her message I felt in my heart she is calling me to deeper prayer, and to spend more time in prayer during this time.

Of course for our present situation, we are in a family transition and a move, and we are really looking to heaven to help us and to guide us.

In my private prayer my thoughts were not exactly on our personal situation. You see, I have been putting this off in sharing, as she had given this message to me on 7/9/11 which was several days ago from now. What she said after this made my heart sink.

Again, as with all private revelation, you must take this for your own discernment, and retain what is good. What was meant for me, may not be for you dear reader.

However Our Lady is keeping this at the fore front of my heart, which has always meant for me is that she wants this to be brought to light. So I am sharing her words she gave to my heart.

Multiply your prayers she said…this is where I begin…

The Our Lady said to me:

“A great event is about to occur on this earth. My little one I want you and your family to remain in prayer during this time.”

Then she referred me to another message from her Medjugorje messages given on 10/25/05 —

“Believe pray and love, and God will be near you. He will give you the gift of all the graces you seek from Him. I am a gift to you, because from day to day, God permits me to be with you and to love each of you with immeasurable love. Therefore little children, in prayer and in humility open your hearts and be witnesses of my presence. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

I saw myself as a little girl holding the hand of Blessed mother, looking up to her and asking her questions as a child would in innocence. I told her I looked to her to teach me, because I am a little child and I do not know the way to heaven. The simple words of “Believe, pray and love” kept coming and repeating in my heart along with “multiply your prayers…

Then my thoughts started to go toward my first born who is going off to college, and I said, “I know she feels she is losing me! I don’t want her to feel this way, especially with the distance that will be between us. I want her to know I am always near to her and that she does not need to be afraid…” and then I saw in the same way this is me with Blessed Mother.

Blessed Mother often teaches me through my own Motherhood and my imperfect relationship with my children. But in this case we are moving to another state while my child is beginning a new life on to college, much further from home now.

These are the words though that made my heart sink as I began to understand that Blessed Mother will be leaving soon…tears pour from my eyes at the thought of this, because I have literally grown up with her at my side, and I cannot bear to think that she will not be appearing in the world any more, and knowing she said in Medjugorje, “when I am no longer appearing you will lament for the message…”

She clearly is stepping back now, for the Father to step in. I don’t know the day, I don’t know the hour, but I do know it is soon, and sooner than we think. And I look around me and I see, countless will be caught by surprise and thrown into despair.

Her private message to me said this…

“My little one, I will be departing soon, but as I have promised, the eyes of my heart will always be upon you. I have taught you well my little one, you only need now to put to life what I have taught you. The message I give will always be your guide, in union with the Holy Bible. As I have taught you, it is through the message you will find me near to you. My little one, the hearts of men have grown cold. I must now decrease, and allow the Father to come to correct His children. Remain vigilant in prayer and you will be united with me in spirit. Remember I am your Mother and that I love you.”

I felt the Mother’s work on this earth is coming to its completion. 30 years she has been with us. It was in the 30th year that St. John the Baptist was beheaded, and it appears the herald for our time; the St. John the Baptist of our time is also being beheaded; many of you know who I am speaking about. It is the time now before the public mission of Jesus with his apostles began.

The apostles of this time are about to do mighty deeds in the name of Jesus.

“The Harvest is ready, but the laborers are few…”

The apostles of the Lord are being put into position through out the globe for what is about to take place in this great event the Mother speaks of.

Then the Mother gave the scripture from the Wedding of Cana, where she said to her Son, “They have no more wine…” There is no more wine to fill the jars. Our hearts, our souls are empty, and then the Lord said to His Mother, “what do you want me to do about it?” Her response is to her apostles; that is, “Do whatever He tells you…”

Dear apostles of these latter times – you know who you are, it is time now to get yourselves in the posture of silence and listening for His command, to fill those jars to the brim so the new wine can be poured out into the world.

The hours is coming upon us where the Son of Man will be made known, in His greatest act of mercy for the world.

Multiply your prayers my friends that you may be ready in the coming days, within the next couple of years for what the Lord has formed you for. Remember, 33 years is the perfect year-the year of the Lord when He triumphed and crushed the head of satan.

The Lord has allowed satan to try the Church for a reason, knowing what He had in mind and what He was going to do for man. He is about to be manifest in His fullness. Woe to those who do not recognize the time of this visitation, that is the visitation of the Blessed Mother who was sent by her Son to call the world to conversion FOR THE LAST TIME.

After I received this light, a strange peace and calm came over me, for I know in my heart it is all business now.

Jesus please keep the eyes of my heart upon you!

Those who have ears ought to hear…

Prodigal Children, Come Home – Part 4 of 4

Father forgive them, they know not what they are doing...

“Dear children, today I call you to a difficult and painful step for your unity with my Son. I call you to complete admission and confession of sins, to purification. An impure heart cannot be in my Son and with my Son. An impure heart cannot give the fruit of love and unity. An impure heart cannot do correct and just things; it is not an example of the beauty of God’s love to those who surround it and to those who have not come to know that love. You, my children, are gathering around me full of enthusiasm, desire and expectations, and I implore the Good Father to, through the Holy Spirit, put my Son – faith, into your purified hearts. My children, obey me, set out with me.”

Afterwards Mirjana said that as Our Lady left she saw a scene that showed darkness on the left and a cross in golden light on the right. Mirjana said she believed that this was Our Lady’s way of showing the difference between a purified and unpurified heart.

As we conclude the reflection of the most recent message from the Mother of God given on 7/2/2011, my hope is that an understanding is coming to light of where we are at as a people of God, or better yet, the prodigal family of God.

The Father is waiting for His children to come back home to His embrace, that is every one of us who have squandered the inheritance and His blessings, through the frivolous spending of excessive entertainment and material wants. He is waiting with open arms and has the fattened calf ready for the great feast.

However recall in this parable, it is the prodigal son who admits what He has done, when he has nothing left, and has been stripped of everything including his dignity before returning to His Father’s embrace. And only then does he kneel before the Father and confesses his sin of disobedience and licentious life he spent wandering as the wayward child.

(If necessary, God the Father will permit you to be stripped to nothing if you cannot return on your knees by your own will, for He is determined to have your salvation and knows what is best for you.)

The Father however upon hearing the remorse of His son, forgets it all, and embraces His son with great delight and welcomes him back home with overwhelming joy and celebration.

Come on dear children of the Family of God. It’s time to come home. Admit your sin, and confess it to the one who forgives, receive His absolution and be made pure. This is what the Mother wants for you. She wants you back home with her in the one loving family.

I saw this quote recently. Consider these words and live by them…

“JESUS CHRIST IS NOT A RELIGION, HE IS OUR SAVIOR. THERE IS NO SALVATION GIVEN UNDER ANY OTHER NAME, BUT THROUGH JESUS CHRIST MAY EVER KNEE BEND.”

“All Christians in any state or walk of life are called to the fullness of Christian life and to the perfection of charity. All are called to holiness. Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.” (CCC 2013)

The Path to a Pure Heart in God’s Family part 3 of 4

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you...

We continue the reflection of the recent message of Our Lady given on 7/2/2011, I want to remind the reader this one thing that the Queen of Peace said at the beginning of the year 2011.

“Dear Children, you are God’s Family…”

Reflect on these words as a reminder of who we are. We are God’s people. We are God’s children. Children learn from their parents. Children are to model their parents and parental role as they become adult children.

We are God’s people, and belonged to God first.

In the previous reflection part 2, I said I once asked God Who am I? Over the course of 20 years in my conversion experience and growing in relationship in the family of God, I have come to know who I am and why I was sent to this earth, and what my purpose is. I now have an absolute identity in the eyes of God.

Having an identity and knowing why the Lord formed you in the womb and put His Spirit in you, makes the purpose of life all the more worth living. I have no other desire but to get to heaven to be once more with my heavenly family. That is where I want to be. But I know the road is narrow, and I have to pass through this deserted exiled world and persevere to the end until I get there.

But I have a road map. This road map consists of the Sacred Scriptures, and the messages of the Mother of God. It is the quickest way out of the desert.

I have passed through the fiery furnace of purification countless times. I know I am not done yet. But I do know I am being led on the right path with my dear Mother holding my hand walking with me, teaching me, guiding me and protecting me along the way.

When I need to rest and the journey gets to hard, I rest with her, and just let she and Jesus hold me until I am able to go on.

So now, the path to a pure heart. It is simply put, and it is the most repeated word in the Holy Bible, “live the commandments, do not forsake the Commandments, live the Beatitudes, and grow in virtue.”

Simple right? Not so!

We are a weak and fallen in nature people. Our natural inclination in the flesh is to sin. Sin is the enemy of the flesh. The flesh and the spirit are opposed to each other says St. Paul, Romans chapter 8

God knows the weakness of man. Which is why God has given us a road map in the way to follow Him on our way back to our true home. If you want to know how to get to heaven, it is all mapped out for us. If we are uncertain of the direction to walk, the universal Church is steering the ship and the course for us. The answer is with the authority Jesus left for us on this earth. The Holy Catholic Apostolic Church.

God calls His people to live His commandments. This was the call of Moses who was to lead a nation out of sin and bondage and was handed the Commandments from God; or more simply put, the household rules to live in God’s family, as God’s children. These Commandments and precepts are the absolute authority over the human being. Remember, Jesus said He did not come to abolish the Law of God, but to fulfill it. Therefore we as God’s people, God’s family are not here to abolish the Law of God as our government wants to do, but to live it, and fulfill it as our savior did.

For this purpose, and for the purpose of Our Lady’s message of 7/2/2011, the Mother is calling us to set out with her, that is to walk with her and her way to the heart of her Son. But we need to begin by confessing the offenses that separated us from Him. We have to admit that we have broken the house rules. She wants us to see it first and admit it, confess it, and make it right as a good Mother would want in her home to keep peace.

Really, does this sound reasonable to ask of her children? She knows what’s going to upset the Father. She knows the Father’s justice, and wants to spare her children from the justice of God which my friends WE REALLY DESERVE.

In the Ten Commandments the Lord demands parents to raise their children in the Lord, and DRILL HIS COMMANDMENTS INTO THEIR MIIND from generation to generation. Parents are to live by good example since the family and the parents of the family are the first teachers to their children.

The family is the original cell of society. If there is a breakdown in society, it is because there is a breakdown in the family. The family is the first school of love in the proper order of God’s family handed down from us from the beginning of time.

This my friends however as the Lord says to His people is a ‘wicked and perverse generation.’ And that we are and we will go down in history as just this! We are the wayward children of Israel in the bible. And just as historically taught of this people, we the people of God have been handed over to the enemy to have his way over us.

Remember, the Lord has allowed satan to try the Church for a period of time. Our Lady said this, and it is documented by former popes. That time is now. The Lord has permitted this to test the fidelity of His people. We have become as a people of God, as one human race, an adulterous bride who is aborting the seed of the Word gifted to us from the bridegroom Jesus Christ.

I am convinced that until we are able to give birth to the Word of God in the world, will not abortion stop, because we are spiritually aborting the seed of Jesus planted in our hearts, which has manifested into these physical abortions.

The Queen of Peace concludes this message given on 7/2/2011 with these words…

“…You my children are gathering around me full of enthusiasm, desire and expectations, and I implore the Good Father to, through the Holy Spirit, put my Son, faith into your purified hearts. My children, obey me, and set out with me…”

This is what the Mother is asking the Father to do? She is asking the Father by the power of the Holy Spirit, put Jesus and faith into hearts that are open to receive Him after they have been purified in confession. Where there is the Mother, and the Holy Spirit, Jesus is going to be born.

But look at what Blessed Mother said to her children, “you my children are gathering around me full of enthusiasm, desire and expectation…”

What frame of mind are we going to meet her? Enthusiasm is good, desire is good, but what happens when we expect something and it is not met? We get disappointed, and let down and then grow angry.

What expectations do we have when we go to meet her? What grand imaginations we have in our expectations. Should we go with expectation to meet the Mother of God? Absolutely not prideful man! We should expect nothing! She is a gift!

Why did she say this to her own children?

Go back to her opening words…”I call you to a difficult and painful step for your unity with my Son…”

Are we expecting the cross when we come to her or go to Medjugorje? No! I am sure most are not.

Most are expecting to see the wonders and awes of Medjugorje. But this is not what Medjugorje is about. Medjugorje is about the call to conversion, living the way of the Cross as following Jesus and fulfilling the Fatima apparitions to holiness in the vocation of marriage, holy orders and religious life. She is calling us to an extraordinary way of life unknown to this world today of entertainment and comfort. We are called to perfect love, to sacrifice our lives for the salvation of souls, to lay our lives down for ones friend…

If you are living the call and the message of Medjugorje, you know to the depth of your being how difficult it is to put this to life in this world, how painful it is to see the Mother of God rejected by her own Church, her own children in the Church, her own priest sons, by her own family.

You know how painful it is to see Jesus rejected by the world, to see God rejected and removed from the mouths and the gov’t places. You are being persecuted as He was, you are suffering and carrying heavy and laden burdens…as intercessors for a broken and unfaithful world.

The world needs its Mother to love it, to heal it and to comfort it. The world needs its Father, its Creator to usher us back into a community of peace once more. The world needs its savior to come and claim the Victory once and for all. The world needs the Holy Spirit to come in Truth and convict it in truth and remind us of all that Jesus taught us. The world cannot live without God.

Below is a prayer of reparation to God for the United States. Please keep this prayer at the forefront for the sake of the Family of God

Prayer for the United States

O Merciful GOd, we cry to Thee for pardon and for mercy. We are “an unbelieving and perverse generation”. We are disobedient, disloyal and ungrateful to Thee. We have excluded Thee from our homes, our schools, our business places. We are no longer worthy to be called Thy children. But Merciful God, spare my country!

Forgive us! Save us from the scourge which we have deserved, especially the killing of the innocent unborn babies. Teach us Thy law and move our wills to serve Thee, henceforth. Merciful God, please spare America!

God Almighty, Lord of all nations, bless us all with lasting peace; give us strength in tribulations; may Thy blessings never cease. We shall always sing Thy praise: Holy, Holy, Holy God our Lord. Amen.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, they shall be called children of God…” (Matt. 5)

Difficult and Painful Steps to Jesus, Part 1 of 4

A difficult and painful step for unity with My Son

“Dear children, Today I call you to a difficult and painful step for your unity with my Son. I call you to complete admission and confession of sins, to purification. An impure heart cannot be in my Son and with my Son. An impure heart cannot give the fruit of love and unity. An impure heart cannot do correct and just things; it is not an example of the beauty of God’s love to those who surround it and to those who have not come to know that love. You, my children, are gathering around me full of enthusiasm, desire and expectations, and I implore the Good Father to, through the Holy Spirit, put my Son – faith, into your purified hearts. My children, obey me, set out with me.”

Afterwards Mirjana said that as Our Lady left she saw a scene that showed darkness on the left and a cross in golden light on the right. Mirjana said she believed that this was Our Lady’s way of showing the difference between a purified and unpurified heart.

As I again here the words of the Mother of God, I once more identify with her as a Mother, again correcting her children in love; correcting a child that needs to be disciplined because of very naughty behavior.

She says, ‘dear Johnny or Susie, admit it! Be accountable for yourself and your actions! Admit you did this! Go say you are sorry and ask for forgiveness…’ Only ask for the forgiveness of Jesus her Son and for the offenses committed against His Sacred Heart for how little we love Him.

It’s funny through, this week I saw just this with my own children. My younger daughter on two occasions took something that was not hers from her sister, and broke one of the items. But she did not tell her sister she broke it, hoping she would not be caught. But as the Lord says, everything in darkness is always exposed in the light.

God sees everything! Isn’t it funny when a parent knows that the child has done something. it is like the the word ‘guilty and shame’ just cover them. And what does the child do? He hides, he blames someone else, denies it, or just out right lies, right?

Look at the wisdom here just in the first few lines of this message…

“Dear children, Today I call you to a difficult and painful step for your unity with my Son. I call you to complete admission and confession of sins, to purification. An impure heart cannot be in my Son and with my Son…”

The Mother of God is calling us out. We have been caught in our sin. Yep! You’ve been spotted! Whatever it is in you that you are trying to deny, suppress or hide, is seen right now by the one Who is all knowing.

How difficult and how painful it is to admit we are wrong! Especially when we think we are right. Or maybe we are right and boast in that justification and point the finger at someone else in our self righteousness, as seeing the splinter in the eye of the other, but blinded by the wooden beam in my own eye.

Just one example of what Our Lady may be saying that may be painful to admit:

Maybe it is painful to admit an abortion, one, two or more of them, and avoid communication with Jesus, avoid Mass, deny God just because we don’t want to justify or admit a grave sin was committed. If this is the case, trust in His Mercy and allow Him to forgive by admitting it was wrong, confessing it, and repenting from it to seek purity of heart again. It is very brave to admit wrong doing and takes courage. It means sucking up our pride and laying it down.

We have to realize that “God hates sin!” He loves the sinner, but He hates sin!

There is no communion with God where there is habitual sin, that is a habit of sin or a lifestyle of sin. There is no communion with God in sin!

Our Lady, your Mother and mine said very clear, “an impure heart cannot be IN my Son and WITH my Son.”

There is no sugar coating these words. Impurity is absolute absence of God. And if the soul is absent of God, there is only one thing left to fill the heart and that is satan. We cooperate with satan plan and not God’s plan. Where ever there is sin, satan finds a playground, and all is fair in his war plan to destroy the human being.

We will continue the reflection of this message in four parts, as there is so much wisdom in these words from Heaven….

Wake Up Unbelivers!

If only they would be converted, I will heal them...

“Dear children, Give thanks with me to the Most High for my presence with you. My heart is joyful watching the love and joy in the living of my messages. Many of you have responded, but I wait for, and seek, all the hearts that have fallen asleep to awaken from the sleep of unbelief. Little children, draw even closer to my Immaculate Heart so that I can lead all of you toward eternity. Thank you for having responded to my call.” June 25, 2011 (30th Anniversary Message)

Dear friends in this joyful message from the Mother of God on the 30th Anniversary of Apparitions and messages from the Queen of Peace in heaven, I found it odd that the Lord would lead me to this scripture for reflection. But after pondering the Word of God for a while, I have a deeper understanding. The Lord dropped Matthew 13 into my heart this morning while I was in prayer and adoration. Many of us know this scripture, it is the parable of the Sower.

He has really been speaking lately in my private life about a pending move for our family. We are being sent to Texas, and I use the word ‘sent’.

My first visit to Texas was on Pentecost Sunday, as we went down to go look for houses.

The scripture this day for Pentecost was “as the Father has sent me, so I send you to go and bear fruit that will remain…”

Well this move is quite a surprise for us as a family. But we knew that we were being sent even before this word came from God on Pentecost. It was only confirmation for us on that day.

The south has been experiencing a drought which I learned going down there. Hard to believe with so much rain we have been getting here in Omaha, with the rivers over flowing and flooding. The Lord speaks often through his creation about his people.

I felt I was in a whole different country though in Texas, in total desolation and desert, with 100 + degree weather. All the more I was not able to get to holy mass for 5 days, which was most unusual for me as I’ve attended daily mass faithfully for over 15 years now.

The Lord really wanted me to experience this desert. I asked him why is this happening. He gave this message. (Keep in mind dear friends, this is private revelation, therefore, take what is good for your own discernment. When the Lord speaks this way, He wants to do something, and is calling for prayer, or fasting, reparation or penance of some sort).

This was His Word to my heart:

” I first had an image of the land in Texas in the coming days plush and green with gardens of flowing water, and the rivers full.” I asked the Lord, how did He want to begin his work here?

He said, “My people must pass through the waters. For now I have closed the heavens until an appointed time, but soon the day is coming when I will pour forth my blessing upon the land. For thus it is so with my people; for their hearts are far from Me, dry without life, as the parched dried up land. Their words of praise come from their lips, but no life remains in them. They are like sheep without a shepherd; yet I desire to lead them to green pastures…Behold I am the one Who is called Faithful and True. Abide in my love…fix your gaze upon your eternal spouse for I desire to unite myself with you…”

In this I understood the Lord is waiting on His people to turn to Him, and return to prayer and fasting.

Shortly after, the message of the Queen of Peace is sent from Heaven. And again Our Lady is waiting on those to WAKE UP FROM THEIR SLEEP OF UNBELIEF.

On another occasion, Our Lady said the world is in a “spiritual coma” and that “faith has become extinguished in the world” and that she has come to awaken the faith.

Here we are speaking of all the baptized Christians, who have fallen into a deep sleep of unbelief and do not live their Christian vocation. Remember for the one who has been baptized in the Lord Jesus Christ, has received the gift of FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE. This is an indelible mark or a seal upon the soul, where one has been born into the life of Christ.

But guess what? If we do not live the Christian vocation, these Baptismal gifts go dormant in us, as though of a hibernation…ah a deep spiritual sleep.

Jesus warned his apostles to “stay awake and pray that you may not undergo the test!” But they often found themselves sluggish and were caught by surprise when the hour came and Jesus was arrested and taken from them.

Today however as I was led to, Matthew 13 in the parable of the sower, the Lord makes it very clear that he is speaking in a parable that the crowds did not understand, as if he did not want to waste time. Because He quoted from the prophet Isaiah in this parable, “you shall hear but not understand, look but never see. Gross is the heart of this people, they will hardly hear with their ears; they have closed their eyes…”

The Lord is saying there are people who are choosing to ignore him, choosing to not believe but pretend to believe.

But then, you feel the pain of his heart when He says, “if only they see with their eyes, or hear with their ears, and understand with their heart and be converted, and I will heal them.”

My friends, this is the cry and the pain of Jesus and His Mother of this 30th Anniversary message.

If only unbelievers would open their eyes and see, open their ears and choose to hear, and decide for conversion, then Jesus will heal. But as it was in this story, the Lord was put off by this people, and shook the dust from His sandals. And He said, to those who have more, more will be given, to those who have little, little will be given.

In other word if you seek first the Kingdom of God the treasures of heaven will be poured out upon you and you will have knowledge of what many longed to see and know. But many turn their hearts from this and follow the way of the world.

Our Lady has been preparing us for a great event that is to come upon the world. Where everyone on this earth will experience the Lord of God. 30 years of Nazareth years we have had with her being formed by the Mother as Jesus had with her as preparation for his public mission. Those who have been living and following her messages, Our Lady is filled with joy and gratitude, for our hearts are made ready to face our God.

But for you unbeliever her heart is sad, because when the day comes and all is made known in truth, you will hide in your shame, as you will see yourself as God sees you in your sinful pitiful state. Do not wait, says the Mother of God for your conversion…for the unbelievers is will be too late. What a waste of life spent on earth for the one who chooses to ignore such a great grace from God.

Dear Jesus, you are the most High God, the one who is called faithful and true. Reclaim what belongs to you, and claim the victory in human hearts. Convert sinners! Our Lady Queen of Peace pray for us!

“Once committed to conversion the heart learns to pray in faith. Faith is a filial adherence to God beyond what we feel and understand. It is possible because the beloved Son gives us access to the Father. He can ask us to “seek” and to “knock” since he himself is the door and the way.” (CCC 2609, Mt. 7:7-11, 13-14)

Please increase your prayer and fasting for the conversion of sinners!

Climb the Mountain and Win say Blessed Mother

Our Lady, Queen of Peace, Pray for Us!

“Dear children! In the great love of God, I come to you today to lead you on the way of humility and meekness. The first station on that way my children is Confession. Reject your arrogance and kneel down before my Son. Comprehend, my children that you have nothing and you can do nothing. The only thing that is yours and what you possess is sin. Be cleansed and accept meekness and humility. My Son could have won with strength, but He chose meekness, humility and love. Follow my Son and give me your hand so that together we may climb the mountain and win. Thank you!”

This message was given on 7/2/07 to the world. And because it is a 2nd of the month message it is addressed to unbelievers. But as I have said many time, we are all unbelievers in truth, so this message speaks to you and to me.

Very strong language from such a loving Mother. But take this message in just that way. The Mother of God who loves her Son, and who is the perfect image of humility speaks truth. We are a very prideful and arrogant people.

Our Lady begins with telling us that she is here because of God’s great love for us. Hearing this we can refer to the scripture in John 3:16-18. God so loves the world, that He sent His Son, not to condemn the world but to save it. Well it is the same for us now. God so loves the world, and His creation that now He sends His Mother to lead us to her Son to bring it to salvation.

Great is the love of God. Now we can hear this word “great” and down play it and say, well that’s nice, or we can take this word “great” and put a heavenly emphasis on it in a universal aspect and say WOW the LOVE OF GOD IS ENDLESS TO PUT UP WITH PEOPLE LIKE US.

Our Lady wants to lead us on a new path. It is a path toward holiness. There is no room for pride or arrogance as she is calling us on the path to holiness. Very simply put, Our Lady says the first step is to go to confession. Examine your conscience and see where pride and arrogance is operating inside of your heart. It could be in areas of selfishness, success, intellectual pride, spiritual pride (which is the worst of all pride – for one who operates in this state easily condemns another one in sin, and does not see the wooden beam in their own eye). We boast in our acheivements, we boast in the God given gifts we have received, and forget where these gifts come from.

How many of us are confessing the sins against the first commandment? That is idolatry? Do you know that there is no one on this earth that is free from this sin? And it is one of the most greatest abominations against God?

And here is Heaven saying to the world, the people of this world, that is every human being on this earth, that you are arrogant and prideful. Does this put things in perspective my friends? Do we hear the seriousness of the message from heaven now?

The Mother makes is clear…she said “comprehend my children…” (these are those children who say that they are hers); “that you have nothing and you can do nothing. The only thing that is yours and what you possess is sin.” OUCH!

We own nothing on this earth. When we leave this earth everything we have in our possession stays. The only thing you take to eternity with you is SIN. That is what you own my friends. Your sin and its marking on your souls.

We should all be crawling on our knees to the Father begging and pleading for mercy. Not only on ourselves, but for the whole world. We should all be fasting, making reparation for the sins, the sacrileges, for the indifferences where God is so offended by arrogant mankind.

To know who you are in truth before the living God, your Creator who gave you life, and to pretend He does not see or hear what or how we are living day to day in sin, is ignorance and absolute blindness of your existence of a human being. This my friends is pride at its best, for one to say they do not need God, or that there is no God, so that they can go on living habitual sinful lives without conscience. And here we are today with a world that is being sucked into a vortex of vileness and its unable to pull itself out.

Our Lady said, “…follow My Son and give me your hand so that together, we may climb the mountain and win.”

Climb the mountain…those who have been to Medjugorje know the meaning of this true and true. To climb the mountains in Medjugorje is not an easy task, and begrudging to say the least. What Our Lady is saying dear friends, this walk with God is not an easy walk, but it is required. Jesus and His Mother however are here now, to hold our hands, and help us make the climb, especially when the climb gets too steep.

She is with us now today. Now is the time of decision. We do not know how much longer the dear Father will let her remain with us. By the sound of her voice, and the tone of her messages recently, many of us do not think this grace will last much longer, because my friends we are ignoring her and not living her messages as a whole people. Some are, but most are not. Just look around you and you will know that what I say is truth.

Today is the 30th Anniversary of her first apparition in Medjugorje, the Feast of St. John the Baptist whose message was “prepare the way of the Lord, make straight His path…” Prepare for Jesus to come into your heart and root out sin. The Mother of God said, “Do not think dear children that Jesus will come again in the manger. No, that is not correct. He will be born in your hearts.” Now this puts it all in perspective. If our hearts are filled with pride and arrogance there is no room for Jesus who is meek and humble of heart.

Just something to reflect for 30 years with the Queen of Peace. Ave Maria!

“…take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves…” (Mt. 11:29)
