Medjugorje – Hundreds of Abortion Doctors Convert

My eyes look upon you

What an amazing story of the miracles of Medjugorje. This article is posted by “Children of Medjugorje” http://www.childrenofmedjugorje.com and worth re-posting and sharing.

“Skulls on Podbrdo! Valentina, 29, comes from the Ukraine. Upon seeing her, you’d believe her to be a “normal,” young girl. However! Her story is far from ordinary! From an atheist background and marked by the hardcore communism of those regions, she grew up in material poverty and spiritual emptiness. One day, she won a “green card,” a sort of American-style lottery, and was given the opportunity to go and live in the United States! She was only 18 years old, and worked as a hairdresser in the Ukraine. So considering the horrible conditions of her life, she left. In the beginning, it was very hard – she didn’t speak a word of English. Her work did not fill up her life, and a terrible feeling of emptiness overcame her. She asked herself the questions that the Queen of Peace asked all of us on July 2nd: “Stop for a moment and reflect on yourselves and on the transience of this your earthly life. Then reflect on eternity and the eternal beatitude. What do you want? Which way do you want to set out on?”

In the darkness of her soul, she couldn’t help thinking that there was, perhaps, another dimension to life. So she tried a few tentative words to a celestial Father, to whom her Ukrainian grandmother used to pray, but who was totally unknown to her: “If you exist, if you are a father, show me!” Through this prayer she received peace in her heart! Her faith was born! It began to increase day by day, and Valentina became a fervent Catholic.

One day she met some pilgrims returning from Medjugorje. Their testimonies inspired in her a deep desire to go there, and in 2007 she undertook the trip. There, her heart was so taken by the presence of Our Lady that she felt strongly moved to make a deal with Her. While praying the rosary at the Statue of the Risen Christ, she realized her mission was to pray for the youth of the Ukraine and Divine Providence would open doors to her as well as hearts.

She had found her vocation! She made her way back to her pension, full of happiness, and, on the path encountered a man, a stranger, who said to her point blank, “Please excuse me if what I’m going to say to you seems stupid, but I have to say it to you: I sense that you are called to bring the young people of your homeland here to the Gospa. Also, I have been looking for you to tell you I would like to sponsor this mission!” Valentina could not believe her ears! She had committed herself to the mission only moments ago at the Risen Christ! Valentina went back to her country to begin her work.

She organized her first pilgrimage in 2008 and all the young people of her parish responded to the call! Her pure heart, her youth, her determination and especially the anointing of the Holy Spirit which rests on her, opened people’s hearts to her. She dedicated a great deal of time to prayer.

I am calling you to the path which leads to heaven

Very quickly, she was drawn to the most poor, and God led her into a medical field, where she found enormous moral poverty. The sick were abandoned. Always with the aid of Divine Providence (she herself had no money), she undertook the creation of hospices where the sick at the end of their life could regain their dignity. Mother Teresa of Calcutta inspired her in that endeavor. She also proposed to some atheist doctors to come with her, and that is how she turned up one day in June of 2011 with 50 pilgrims from a medical corps, all atheists. The doctors who came were professional abortionists! Valentina clung to the Gospa, who wants to invite all her children – yes all – to come under her maternal mantle.

Among them, a gynecologist in her sixties. Along with the whole group, she climbed Apparition Hill. Little did she know that Valentina had prepared a contingency plan inspired by the Gospa for all her pilgrimages: atheist or not, upon arriving at the top, everyone consecrates himself to the Immaculate Heart of Mary! The gynecologist did this like everyone else. In the evening she gathered her group together, because she wanted to share something very important. Her throat tightened. She had difficulty talking, she, this big shot who oversaw all the services of her hospital…

“I had scarcely put my foot down on the hill“, she said, “when everything changed before my eyes. The rocks disappeared. The hill was suddenly covered with the bones and skulls of all the babies I had aborted over forty years. Look at these hands! (Here, she stretched out her hands before the group). Here are the hands which killed an entire city!” She was crying and in the room, the handkerchiefs came out one after another. All the abortionists who were present retreated into themselves. For the most part, they would leave changed, converted, dedicated to stopping abortions and to walking with God.

Valentina continues her beautiful mission. As of today, 400 abortionist doctors have come under her influence. The most recent group of 50 left Medjugorje last August 29. She doesn’t make them pay, because she doesn’t want any money from innocent blood to be part of the mix. How does she manage it? Each time it’s a new challenge. The money comes at the very moment it is needed to finance the pilgrimage of these rich doctors. Since that first time, several hospitals have stopped abortions and the practice of euthanasia. Valentina, and all those who now support her, have one goal: to cleanse all the hospitals of the Ukraine from these deadly practices and to bring down upon them the blessing of God. She wants to give back to the doctors of the medical corps the dignity of their profession. Today, so many of those hands which killed innocent ones are transformed, and Heaven uses them to protect and promote life!

I have never seen the sun spinning at Medjugorje, but this miracle, the whole world can see it! Valentina is convinced that this river of grace will not be limited to the Ukraine. Let us pray for her and her friends, that they may be protected! And let us ask on behalf of all nations for the grace of this burning zeal and living faith which have moved and will move many more mountains!”

Dearest Gospa, we know that in the end, your Immaculate Heart will triumph! In order to hasten your victory, we want to be your instruments, your apostles! Because today, too many of your children are dying because they do not know Jesus!

Convert and Pray in Your Families

Which path do you choose?

Early Friday morning during my morning prayer I pulled this message from Our Lady at random to reflect upon. Only minutes later would I get a message from a friend about the news of the shooting in Aurora, Colorado.

“…Be converted…pray more, pray with the Holy rosary, pray amongst yourselves in the cenacles,(prayer groups) pray above all in your families. I want Christian families to return to the practice of praying with me and by means of me so that they will be saved from the great evils threatening them. Mortify yourselves with penance and corporal fasting. It is fasting from evil and from sin that I prefer, of renunciation of tobacco, alcohol, motion pictures and television. Do not watch motion pictures or television shows which corrupt your interior chastity and bring so much dissipation into your souls, sowing the germs of evil in your hearts … consecrate yourselves continually to my Immaculate Heart and live in daily communion of life and love with me. I am the Mother of faith; I am the faithful virgin and today you should ask me for help to remain in the true faith. If you do everything I ask you, you will be walking each day with me toward your conversion. Live well this space of time which the merciful love of Jesus still gives you. You will live with trust and with joy the impending movement of the triumph of my Immaculate Heart.” (Mother of God, May 13, 1984-MMP)

I have many issues about the new Batman movies that has been developed by Hollywood and how much evil and darkness is portrayed in these series. So much I forbid my children from participating in watching them. It is not the old Batman and Robin that we once grew up with any more, and it keeps getting darker as each series comes out, as its name almost gives it away.

However this message from Our Lady seems to bring a different light into the situation. It is as if the Mother of God is convicting in these words about such movies that plants the seeds of evil in the hearts of men for one to commit such a murderous crime, as if he were living in the fantasy of the movie itself.

I’ve had many requests from friends close to the victims to pray. Of course we are keeping them all close to heart in prayer.

But today I sat with the Lord before the most Blessed Sacrament, and I felt Our Lady say to me again, pray for families in a special way. I was praying for families in general.

Go to Jesus - surrender your past to Him

I started to dive into the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary and reflected on the hidden mysteries of the foundation of holy family life which began in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

As the Lord led me in the prayer I came to the culmination at the 5th Mystery, “the Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple”. The Holy Spirit was moving me toward praying for parents who have lost their child in one way or another, and for those who grieve at the loss of a child; whose children who have gone astray and/or are missing, and I asked Our Lady to point them all to her Son Who is present in the Holy Tabernacle in the Church, where God can be found again.

Then I began to see the families of the victims of this crime in Aurora Colorado, and their pain pierced my heart. So I asked the Lord, what happened? What drives someone to commit such a murderous act? As I have the vision of this shooter in my mind from all the news flashes of him with his red hair, and empty look on his face who seems to be out of his mind literally.

Here is man who seemed to have it all together, one his way for making a life for himself, gone dark. And he seemed to be caught in the fantasy of a violent video game, thinking he’s the villan in the game, and Wow! Look how he cooperated in the trap of satan.

I then began to see how many young men, boys and girls alike who are participating in these video games that are deadly, bloody and gross to say the least, who day in and day out play these games.
Mush minds! It is a playground for satan and its cohorts.

Do these young people know the difference between reality and fantasy I ask? How many hours do parents permit their children to be seduced by such evil that they call entertainment? And this is just one venue in the way the youth are being exposed.

Our Lady says to fast from these as a way of breaking the habit or the addiction. Why? Because they are compromising the purity of heart by what the eye sees, for the eye is the window to the soul. And what we put before our eyes in this way is planting the seeds of evil in the heart. This young man in Colorado is a perfect example of how far this can go.

Once the door is open as one cooperates with sin, satan has his way to manipulate anyway he pleases. In this case a massacre has occurred leaving many wounded and innocent victims killed.

Parents! Be forewarned! You bear the grave responsibility before God for what you expose your children to. It is your job to guard and protect, and preserve the dignity and purity of your children. Jesus said it would be better for one to tie a millstone around his neck and be tossed into the sea before they cause anyone of his little ones to sin. It is time to clean house and be rid of such filth in the home, and begin working with your children in the interior of heart for the sake of their souls.

There is much, much more to say about such evil as Our Lady often warns about satan’s activity in the world. But that is not the focus here. The focus is putting to life the message of the Mother of God, and being a witness.

Our Lady is sent to the world by God, to call the world to conversion with heaven’s help. She said the world cannot do it on its own. Our Lady is pointing us in the direction towards salvation, to her Son. Now is the time of decision. Dear friends, make good use of this time!

May the Mercy of God cover us all! Ave Maria!

Build Your House on Rock

Fasting and renunciation strengthens your faith

Dear friends, today in my morning prayer I was led to this message from Our Lady given on 3/25/2007. And its not even Lent, but fasting must be a lifestyle. Read on…

“Dear children! I desire to thank you from my heart for your Lenten renunciation. I desire to inspire you to continue to live fasting with an open heart. By fasting and renunciation, little children, you will be stronger in faith. In God you will find true peace through daily prayer. I am with you and I am not tired. I desire to take you all with me to Heaven, therefore, decide for holiness. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

I kept going back to this message at each decade of the rosary as I prayed fixed on her words at first that said,

“…by fasting and renunciation, little children you will be stronger in faith. In God you will find true peace through daily prayer…”

And what came to my heart were a couple of scriptures regarding the true peace of God. Jesus said to His apostles when He taught about the coming of the Holy Spirit,

“…Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled or afraid…” (Jn. 14:27)

AND also the scripture with Peter who declares that Jesus is the Christ:

“…Who do you say that I am? Simon Peter replied, ‘You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.’ And Jesus Answered him, ‘Blessed are you Simon Bar-Jona! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my Church and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it, I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven ….” (Mt. 16:15-19)

And finally from (Mt. 7:24-27), “…Every one then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house upon the rock; and the rain fell and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house upon sand; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell; and great was the fall of it…”

I understood through her message that with prayer, fasting and renunciation in this sense Our Lady desires to strengthen and fortify us as solid spiritual houses. When the storms of life come crashing in our spiritual house will be able to withstand.

My peace I give to you

By fasting and renouncing things already before the storms of life take over us, we are already built up as solid foundations on rock, and the faith is reproved and tested to see if we are able to uphold what we believe. We are conditioned like athletes to be fit to exercise the faith when we are met with the challenge. Even hell cannot have its way with us, through its provoking to sin, because we have already renounced what the world promises in false hope and false peace.

Those who do not live the message of Our Lady or of the gospel find themselves wavering and weak of faith, and cry out, grow angry at God because they don’t get what they want, or fall into despair.

Our Lady says, God is there to help, but she waits for our yes to accept the cross. Then she can give us to Jesus so that He can give us the graces we NEED. Not what we want, but what we NEED for our sanctification.

The Holy Spirit is the key, from the beginning. It is the gift of the Holy Spirit that Jesus gave to His apostles to endure, to persevere, to accomplish the mission which was entrusted to them.

Remember on 6/2/2012 Our Lady just spoke about leading us to the door of heaven. We need the keys to open the door. She said it is the goodness, mercy, love and peace of Jesus that opens heaven. These are the keys given to Peter. He was empowered with supernatural grace of the Holy Spirit to be the gate keeper of these divine fruits and bring them to the world. Our Lady desires to give us the same spirit, the same gift, the same keys to bring heaven on earth. But we must choose to use the key to unlock the door and decide for holiness.

Our family has lived with Our Lady for over these past 20 years. She has taught this to us. We in the present time are going through another stripping as a family in our finances. We have been through this many times with her. But it is if we are being tested in our faith in God. Because we literally have nothing left from check to check except exactly what we need to have to buy gas for our vehicles and groceries for the home on a minimum level. Talk about trust and total dependency on God! But we also knew as a family that God was going to lead the world in this same direction. When that time comes we will be empowered to endure as we have been living this way for several years now. We practice it and live it.

We have to renounce all the extras that we want to do, and focus only on what we need. We have been learning to do this for many years now, and here we are again. We have to make use of what we have, and boy its tough sometimes to be creative with meals with so little. We’ve had a garden to grow our own food, and I taught myself how to can.

God gave us a beautiful home as a gift, and then moved us out of it a year later. While we still have the home, we are renting another home at another place/state, unable to enjoy the gift He gave to us. Why? Only He knows, but we know it is still for our sanctification and purification. We know He will call us back to the home He gave to us, but in the mean time we focus on conversion. I ask often, “who lives this way?” Well we do if we want to follow God. Just call us Abraham and Sarah!

But the bottom line is to simplify and learn to live simply not to be attached to anything of this world. When we are able to go on trips, and make purchases, we then have learned to see that it is a gift from God, because we know it is not something that we can freely get or do on our own. We have to pray to the Lord and seek His will for us, before we make purchases or go any where.

The Lord surprises us on many occasions especially when we are making a trip in His will and we don’t have the funds to do so. Out of no where will monies come, and we find it is exactly what was needed for us as a family. God is sooo good!

We are learning through all of this that this is how God is strengthening us in faith. We are a praying domestic church (family) and living as a house of prayer. We are building our house on a solid foundation, and it is fasting and renouncing the things of the world to is helping us see the error of our ways.

Ave Maria

Be the Light of My Son, Part I

I am in the Father and the Father is in Me...

Dear friends, I want to remind you before reflecting on the recent message given by our Lady on 11/2/11 and also on 10/25/11. From the beginning of this year, the Blessed Mother has been reminding us of our familial bond as God’s family. But what comes to mind for me in all of this as I reflect upon her words of how we are the prodigal children of God. We’ve strayed far from the Father and squandered the inheritance.

I sat with the Lord before the Most Blessed Sacrament as I always do with the message, seeking light on how this message speaks to me and how I must put it to live personally. God in His graciousness gave a beautiful teaching.

This section will be a reflection on the first part of 11/2/11 Message, and the rest will be in part II and III. To remind you what she said…

“Dear children! The Father has not left you to yourselves. Immeasurable is His love, the love that is bringing me to you, to help you to come to know Him, so that through my Son, all of you can call him ‘Father’ with the fullness of heart, that you can be one people in God’s family…”

From the beginning she affirms to us….“The Father has not left you to yourselves…” God the Father has not abandoned you as many so often think that there is no God. He has not left us orphans!

Look at the love the Father has for us! He has sent Blessed Mother to us — not just for a short time but for almost a full generation; that is 30 years to date!

Our Lady reminds us so often, that we do not comprehend the greatness of this gift.

Our Lady used the word “immeasurable” to describe the love of the Father. IMMEASURABLE is His love!

Mirjana asked the pilgrims and to the world last month, “Do we deserve this?” Look around and see the sin that surrounds us and then ask again, “do we deserve this love?” Clearly NOT.

Think about this for a moment….

Over 2000 years ago God sent His only begotten Son to the world, not to condemn the world but to bring it to salvation; John 3:16.

Jesus says in the gospel that NO ONE can come to the Father except through HIM. Jesus is the way to the Father. We need to passover if you will through Jesus to get to the Father.

Jesus is the only perfect sacrifice, pleasing to the Father. That is; where ever the Father sees Jesus it brings Him great delight and great joy.

What does this mean for us?

If we want to please the Father we need to look like Jesus. That is, the Father needs to see Jesus in us this way. The Word incarnate must be; so to say ‘enfleshed’ in us in such a way that we are transformed into empty vessels void of sin for Jesus to dwell and possess our hearts. Then Jesus in us will lead us to the Father, which is the way to the promise land.

We have to live, breath, and eat the Word made flesh and die to ourselves. We have to live through Jesus, with Jesus and in Jesus, by way of carrying our daily cross to be worthy of Him, by way of His suffering, death and resurrection. If we die to our self with Him in this way, then He promises that we rise with him.

Now with this in mind; let’s look at Our Lady. In her life, she was consecrated from birth through her whole life, from beginning to end to the service of God. This is who she is, not what she did.

She was so immersed into God she dwelt in perfect union with Him always of one mind and heart. She grew up in the temple and lived a life of prayer and sacrifice, with holy devotion. She was found to be ‘highly favored’ by the Lord, so much so an angel of God Hailed her as one of royalty.

Through this the Holy Spirit consumed her, and overshadowed her, and then the Word which comes from the Spirit began to grow in her in living Flesh.

What does the Father see when He looks at the Blessed Virgin Mary? He sees the living tabernacle that carried His most beloved Son; as one who is spotless and without blemish, having no sin in her.

Consider the Ark of the Covenant in the old Testament, the dwelling place of God where the people worshiped. No ordinary man could come into the presence of the Ark, only the high priest dedicated to the Lord could come into the presence of the Ark.

If the Lord sees Our Lady as this sacred vessel as it was for the Ark of the Covenant, the most holy dwelling place of God, then how much more should we give honor to the Mother of God in her bodily form. The beauty and the grace in this, as Our Lady comes to us today as one of us. She comes as the handmaid of the Lord. That is, her Majesty the Queen of Heaven is lowering herself to we peasants, who are most undeserving of her presence among us.

She comes as Mother, the Queen of Peace in a most tender and loving way. She is looking at us beyond the sin in our hearts with great compassion as one who has been lost forever and desires us to just come home and be in heaven with her.

I had an experience with Our Lady just last week after Mass. I made a visit to her at the Lourdes grotto in our parish, to just pray with her. As I sat with her, I felt her in a special way just gazing at my heart. Then I realized that I had the presence of Jesus within me, from Holy Mass. I felt her adoring her Son in my heart, and as she was adoring Him, I felt a warmth of love burning in my heart, and interiorly saw the light of God glowing all the more, as if He wanted to shine from within to the outside. It was a most incredible experience, but the message I received from this was greater.

Jesus wants to be born into the world from our hearts. Our Lady desires that we adore Him the way she adored Him. If we want to love Him the way He should be loved, then we need to ask her to love Him in us. We have imperfect love, but the Mother’s love for Her Son is most perfect.

So what do we take from this? As the Lord once said to me in my heart, “Let your light shine!” Let the One Who is in you shine forth, and repeat the words in your heart, “I must decrease, so that He may increase in me.

“Jesus said to them, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, then you will know the Father.” (John 14:6-7)

A Miracle in the Heart – Part II

He humbled Himself...taking the form of a slave...

Below is the message given on 10/2/11 for review. I am sharing my personal experience with this message that has been brought to light for me as a Mother….

“Dear children; Also today my motherly heart calls you to prayer, to your personal relationship with God the Father, to the joy of prayer in Him. God the Father is not far away from you and He is not unknown to you. He revealed Himself to you through my Son and gave you Life that is my Son. Therefore, my children, do not give in to temptations that want to separate you from God the Father. Pray! Do not attempt to have families and societies without Him. Pray! Pray that your hearts may be flooded by the goodness which comes only from my Son, Who is sincere goodness. Only hearts filled with goodness can comprehend and accept God the Father. I will continue to lead you. In a special way I implore you not to judge your shepherds. My children, are you forgetting that God the Father called them? Pray! Thank you.”

Our Lady begins her please as a Mother speaking from her heart. Mothers I appeal to you in this right from the get go. Can you identify with the sound of this word? I know I can.

Only recently did I have to address a concern I had with one of my children who was toying with something that I knew was detrimental to compromising her salvation, her purity of heart, and her well being. I was sick to my stomach knowing my child was falling into a trap that many teens fall for, and that which we have worked with so many years to reject.

Now she is on her own away at college, and has to make sounds choices on her own. The peer pressure, the college way of life, all became very overwhelming for her. My friends this is a Catholic College, and one that is supposed to be known as a solid Catholic College.

The teens are having sex, jumping from one partner to the next. Parties non-stop with drinking alcohol and drugs, and the kids saying “our parents can do nothing about it.”

It is a playground for satan to work. Where is the authority and the college officials who were so eager to draw the student to their school for their money, feeding parents what they want to hear, and that they want to keep their Catholic identity, while they turn their backs and ignore the infestation of sin occurring under their own noses.

The Mother is calling us into relationship with not only her Son, but God the Father. She specifically said a personal relationship “in the goodness of her Son Jesus.”

I was taken into this message in a different light now again in my own motherhood and parental role for the sake of my child who is away at college. I have been hearing her say that she and her peers have this opinion that now that they are in college they don’t have to listen to their parents tell them what to do.

This statement was just eating me up inside. I kept asking in prayer “what is this?” I know this is wrong. Then I hear parents casually saying, “Oh, this is just them spreading their wings, or this is the way it is, or this and that is okay, she’ll be okay…bla, bla, bla…” Unacceptable!

Then the Lord lead me to the following scriptures…

Lk. 2:51-52 “He went down with them and came to Nazareth and he was obedient to them; and his mother kept all these things in her heart. Jesus advanced in wisdom and in age before God and men.”

“Honor Father and Mother that it may go well for you…” (4th Commandment and 38 References in the bible about respect for those in authority – and to the parents who gave life)

“… Though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality to God something to be grasped. Rather he emptied himself taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness, and found in human appearance, He humbled himself, becoming obedient to death even death on a cross. Because of this God greatly exalted him…” (Phil. 2:6-8)

As I reflected further the Holy Spirit brought to light that Jesus by his choice humbled himself to be obedient to Joseph and Mary. But even more, he lived with them for 30 years of his life before He began his public mission. When St. Joseph died, he took on the male role in the home.

He chose this way of life for a purpose, and that is to give example of honor in proper authority, out of reverence to God His Father.

To have this way of thinking; that is “youths do not have to listen to parents any more because they are away from the home is absolute rebellion against the Father’s authority entrusted to them, and it is the sin that was there from the beginning with Adam and Eve who in cooperation with the serpent said ”I will not serve … I will not obey…”

Seeing it all in this light gives a whole new seriousness to the situation. College campuses all over this country perpetuate this environment, and yes this includes the best Catholic Universities. And When teens rebel against their parents, they are also rebelling against God who gave them their parents as gifts.

Arrogance and pride say “you cannot tell me what to do, or I don’t need you, and so on…”

On the contrary Jesus who is God, did not make himself equal to God in human form. He humbled himself, taking the lowest form of the human state in poverty, and allowed himself to be needed for the sake of the other for well over 30+ years of his life.

Teens believe the lie of the enemy who says you can be your own God. He lied to Adam and Eve this way, placing the seed of doubt in their minds to trick them into committing sin.

As parents, God ordained us to follow and live by His Laws, and that we teach them to our children, and children’s children for generation after generation. This is the Divine Order and absolute mandate from God Himself under the Commandments. Not because it is the job of the parent to control the life of the child, but to follow the Divine Order.

Yes, by “CIVIL LAW” as students at the age of 18 and above away from home say you are adults, and you have a certain freedom given to you, which is gift. But Divine Law always supercedes any civil law, and does not give anyone the permission to forget everything they have been taught from the beginning.

There is no one else but the parent or one who is in authority who is following the laws of God going to give sound counsel and be forth right and upfront with their teen, except the ones who know them best, who have lived with them for those 18 + years during their formation years.

It takes great courage and the supernatural gift of humility to humble ones self in this way.

As parents, God holds us accountable to give sound advice, good counsel and right judgment in all things, for what is best for the welfare of the child, and above all for salvation of the soul even at the sake of not being popular with them.

Parents are not trying to oppress their teenagers as some of them think. We are trying to be open to them for better or worst as in the vows of our marriage, but can never condone misconduct or sinful behavior. Its not about making mistakes or bad choices. On the contrary, this is about not putting their soul in jeopardy for their salvation.

Parents will never be perfect, but God is perfect and we are called to uphold perfection with the knowledge and understanding that has been given to us.

Love never condones sin. Love desires heaven for the other at whatever cost for their salvation.

There are two vocations to choose from, married life or celibacy. In which ever is chosen a teen at this age must have the mindset first to prepare for their vocation, then their career.

In vocations, either married life or celibacy, that is in the divine order, there will always be someone in authority over the other, either spouse or superior.

It is the same in the work place, there will be always someone as manager, or owner of companies that will make you accountable. It is for the good of the person and common good of those around you. It is the same with civil authority, and Church authority. When someone rejects authority, then nothing but disorder and unrest will come with it.

So back to the statement about “being in college now, there are no parents to tell me what to do” concept…

God never said, “Ok teenage you are 18 now, go off and be accountable to no one but yourself.” That is the lie and great deception!

Everything has to have an order in the Divine Law first.

With the freedom that is given, God is entrusting them with GREAT RESPONSIBILITY to be a good stewards over what He is entrusting them to. And where He has placed you, He will hold you accountable for how you gave witness to him or not.

Therefore, referring back to the message of 10/2/11 in this light the Mother of God is the one who is calling her children into personal relationship with the Father through Jesus her Son, who was humble and obedient to the Father, and did not make himself equal to the Father in human form, but humbled himself to be led.

This is all about family relationship! Not about friendly relationship, or party time, but family relationship with God! First and foremost as being members of God’s family, then in the natural human family.

If teens could see their friends as brothers and sisters in Christ, then they would all see each other differently, and act towards another differently with great respect and dignity for the person out of reverence for Christ and the dignity of the human person.

Many are seeking miracles and special favors from God. But what about the miracle of the heart? To have the courage to fight for truth and be witness to that God exists. This is one one witness of living this message.

“Children obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother. This is a first commandment with a promise, “that it may go well with you and that you may have a long life on earth…” (Eph. 6:1-3)

A Miracle in the Heart – Part I

Grace and Mercy dear Jesus...

“Dear children; Also today my motherly heart calls you to prayer, to your personal relationship with God the Father, to the joy of prayer in Him. God the Father is not far away from you and He is not unknown to you. He revealed Himself to you through my Son and gave you Life that is my Son. Therefore, my children, do not give in to temptations that want to separate you from God the Father. Pray! Do not attempt to have families and societies without Him. Pray! Pray that your hearts may be flooded by the goodness which comes only from my Son, Who is sincere goodness. Only hearts filled with goodness can comprehend and accept God the Father. I will continue to lead you. In a special way I implore you not to judge your shepherds. My children, are you forgetting that God the Father called them? Pray! Thank you.”

Mirjana said: “I have never said anything before, but are you aware, brothers, that the Mother of God was with us? Each of us should ask himself: ‘Are you worthy of this?’ I am saying this because it is difficult for me to see Her (Our Lady) in pain, because each of us is seeking a miracle, but does not want to work a miracle in himself.”

Just a couple of days ago, Blessed Mother gave this message to the world directed to those who do not know the Love of God. In other word the “unbeliever”.

So often I have repeated that the unbeliever is the one who lacks faith.

We may be strong in faith in some areas of our journey through life, but weak in faith in other areas. Or we may just choose to not believe in the mystery of the divine at all.

In my own prayer life however I have to ask again in my own heart what does this message say to me? Our Lady’s message is for every human person in the world. But like her Son, many do not give heed to her messages, or may hear it and put it aside and go about living as they do.

What came to mind for me was the parable about the fertile seed of the Word of God that fell on the ground, among the rocks, the weeds, or the birds ate it up, or it may land on rich fertile soil. The message of the Mother of God is not taking root because the soil of the heart is not rich enough for it to receive heaven’s word.

All of this is an analogy of the state of the human heart and where we are at in our state in life passing through our conversion. Our hearts may be filled with thorns of wounds and pain that will not allow the seed to take root. (Lk. 4) Or our hearts may be hardened as stone in some areas where we may be called to grow deeper in union with God. Our hearts may be distracted by worldly pleasures and sinful things that swallow up the word when spoken by absolutely ignoring the fact that we need to amend our lives for our own good. Only you can answer where you are in your state in life and which one you are.

I will continue with the reflection more in part II of this article, but what really caught my attention was the words of Mirjana after this message was given. Here I paid attention!

Hearing her comment about the message gives the message a whole new meaning. Very rarely does she every comment about the message when it is given. She receives the message and she dictates it to the one who is to announce it to the crowd. Mirjana goes back to her normal way of life as wife and mother, and then on certain days will host the pilgrims who stay with her.

So why did Mirjana feel compelled to say something this time? Seems she too is also disturbed by the fact that we human beings just aren’t getting it, and cannot comprehend the greatness of this gift we have with the Mother of God. We treat it as if it is nothing. Grave error my friends!

This woman holds the secret of the fate of the world. She knows what is going to happen when God’s justice comes to the world, and she makes no bones in saying, DO NOT WAIT FOR CONVERSION. FOR THOSE WHO IGNORE THIS CALL IT WILL BE TOO LATE!!!

Mirjana said repeating from above…

“I have never said anything before, but are you aware, brothers, that the Mother of God was with us? Each of us should ask himself: ‘Are you worthy of this?’ I am saying this because it is difficult for me to see Her (Our Lady) in pain, because each of us is seeking a miracle, but does not want to work a miracle in himself.”

ARE YOU AWARE THAT THE MOTHER OF GOD IS WITH US?

EACH SHOULD ASK HIMSELF; (paraphrasing) AM I WORTHY OF THIS?

Clearly we are not aware of this great gift from Heaven. Clearly we do not comprehend the magnitude of this gift. If we did, this whole world would be converted without question. And absolutely NOT is anyone worthy of this gift from heaven!!!

Then Mirjana reminds us of how difficult it is for her to see the Mother of God in such pain. How long is this blind human race and the members of the Church going to go on ignoring the fact that she is coming to the world.

But then there are those who are saying…. “I DON’T BELIEVE IT. GIVE ME A SIGN. SHOW ME MIRACLES. I WON’T BELIEVE UNTIL THE CHURCH SAYS ITS APPROVED…”and so on.

Mirjana says you are all missing the whole point. While you are waiting for your proof, you are missing the opportunity of grace to experience the miracle of God in your heart. This is the miracle of conversion of heart, purity of heart so that you can see God AS HE IS. NOT WHAT YOU THINK HE IS, BUT AS HE IS.

As a visionary, who has sacrificed her entire life from early childhood for these past 30 years, she has been most consistent in her testimony to the apparitions she receives. And so are the other 5 visionaries from Medjugorje.

There life alone should be a witness to the authenticity of the appearance of the Mother of God coming from heaven. They have absolutely no privacy. Millions of people have walked their grounds, passed through their homes, ravaged the land, mob the visionaries, judge them, persecute them and I can go on and on. They have been tested and continue to be tested by countless doctors, psychologists and the like who have all testified time and again, they are normal people.

They have been judged by the fact that they chose the vocation of marriage to live their cross and not religious life. When asked why they chose this, they respond by saying, “Our Lady says we are free to choose…” But later Mirjana said that Blessed Mother wished she would have chose religious life as it would have gone easier for her.

This spoke loud to me my friends. Because the majority of the Church is the lay vocation. Their witness shows that heaven is calling the lay to holiness in marriage and family life. I think many would agree, we need holy marriages today. We need holy families today, right?

Holiness does not just belong to the celibate life! Every human being is called to holiness in his state in life!

If you don’t agree then you are part of the problem of why the world is falling apart and have a gross distortion of the meaning of holiness, which only means living a life of virtue in prayer, in the ways of God, by living out his Commandments.

Their whole life has been thus far spent on witnessing and giving the testimony of the message Our Lady speaks to the world, knowing first and above all they have to live it as well, as their way of the cross. At the same time trying to keep a good quality family life and not exposing their children to worldly ways. As a parent today, I think you know how hard this is to accomplish. But greater is the responsibility on the visionaries who have received such gifts from heaven.

To be a Christian in today’s world is to be a martyr, because as you can see it is the Christian that is at the front line of the attacks in the world, and its moral belief. And at the front of the attack is the Catholic Church, human life and the family from the heads of government to the family member in the home.

The Catholic Church is the moral conscience for the world.

In part II of this article, Our Lady address’ this grave problem for the world.

“As he drew near he saw the city and wept over it saying, ‘if this day you only knew what makes for peace – but now it is hidden from your eyes. For the days are coming upon you when your enemies will raise a palisade against you; and they will encircle you and hem you in on all sides. They will smash you to the ground and your children within you and they will not leave one stone upon another within you because you did not recognize the time of your visitation.” (Luke 19:41-44)

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)
