Sept. 2, 2013 Medjugorje Message for Unbelievers

Mirjana’s September 2, 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 alongside 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.

For the sake of Jesus, for the sake of my Son, love those whom he has called and long for the blessing only from the hands which He has consecrated.

Do not permit evil to come to reign. Anew I repeat – only alongside your shepherds will my heart triumph. Do not permit evil to separate you from your shepherds. Thank you.

Do not be afraid

Do not be afraid

Freedom comes under the Law

Freedom comes under the Law

Freedom comes under the Law

Praise be Jesus Christ! I’ve often said I do not write unless I feel called to write. Today the Lord was clear that He wanted this teaching that He gave me to be shared, especially in this Nation where the Constitutional Law is always threatened and under attack. It makes sense now why freedom and liberty are at stake. Here is why as I understood it….

The Lord led me to the scripture of Galatians 3. I reviewed the whole chapter, trying to understand what was being said to me in this whole reading where St. Paul admonishes the Galatian people for their lack of understanding and returning to their former way of life. He reminds them that they are Christs’ body and that the error of the Jews was following the letter of the law” and not the “heart of the law”. Sounds like a form of religiosity which many of us fall into.

The Law of God, has been established to show His people, what sin is. It is a separation of the wheat from the chaff so to say, God’s children vs. satan’s children.

However even Law abiding sinners; even though we commit sin against the Law, the Lord has established his covenant with the forefathers and prophets before us. The promise of God, ie the covenant will never be broken as in this scripture as St. Paul declares. St. Paul speaks of the forefathers of his time with Abraham; but the covenant continues in Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David all the way to the fulfillment of the Law in Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son.

The Lord told Abraham to take his “only son” Isaac with him for a sacrifice. The only son of Abraham I thought. Wait a minute, there is Ishmael. He is a son of Abraham also but the Lord seems to be saying, “not so”. But the word clearly said, “your only son” Isaac.

Isaac is the son of the promise or the covenant and legitimate son under the marriage law which ultimately is the line of the chosen people to Jesus Christ. The son of the covenant is not through a concubine. Even though Abraham sinned against the Lord by having relations with Hagar this did not stop the Lord from fulfilling his covenant conceiving his son Isaac.

I have learned that once God speaks, it is finished. Once God begins something Our Lady has said in Medjugorje, nothing can stop it. When the Lord speaks, something is done. No man on earth can stop what the Lord begins no matter how hard he tries. Man may get in the way and the spoken word may be delayed or have its time, but if it is spoken, its already done in eternity. In this light then we can see how the bible is a living Word spoken Word of God. Its eternal and is the same from the beginning when the words were first spoken and then written down.

May God thy gold refine

May God thy gold refine

Now a greater light came in this understanding to explain further the truth. I thank the Lord for His goodness, and I leave the rest to you for your own prayer and discernment.

It has been touted on many occasions that the illegitimate children of Abraham say that their law is above the law of God and the law of this land. The Constitution of the United States of America (and I am not one who is well versed in history by no means); written by the forefathers of this great nation has her foundation established in the union of the ‘United States’ – that is states united. The Laws of this Nation are founded on the laws and principals of the Commandments of God, rooted in Christian principals.

one Nation under God

one Nation under God

The Commandments of God are written in stone from the biblical text; meaning they are firm, NEVER to be changed or amended. No man has the power to change the commandments of God, nor will they ever have the power to change or delete the commandments of God as many man made institutions are still trying to omit in this time. These commandments are the Eternal Law, bound up and sealed in heaven, and God’s Almighty Justice is governed by them.

The forefathers of this nation bound to the Laws of God as Christian men, formed the Constitution in this principal.

The Lord continued in prayer to show an image of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence as a document of gold and covered in light as if it is itself a covenant between God and man, with the forefathers of this nation.

(Why was the Lord showing me this, I am asking). I then began to understand, that the enemy through the people who oppose the Lord and His laws is making a statement that the Constitution is an obstacle to them in what they want to accomplish with their agenda and their anti-Christ policies. Praise God it is so! May the Lord remember His promise He made to our forefathers which He established in this land and which is also consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Establish justice and unity

Establish justice and unity

Let our prayer be of such that Jesus Christ the universal and eternal covenant between God and man who poured out His precious blood for all generations may continue to bless and sanctify through His most precious blood the world and this great nation, that we may be a people as it was declared at the first day of independence, “one Nation UNDER GOD indivisible, with liberty and justice for all…may God thy gold refine”…through her purification (justification) to be a light once more to the nations.

Gal. 3:23-29, 4:6-7 “Before faith came, we were held in custody under, confined for faith that was to be revealed. Consequently the law was our disciplinary for Christ that we might be justified by faith. But now that faith has come we are no longer under a disciplinarian . For through faith you are all children of God in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourself with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free person, there is not male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendents, heirs according to the promise…As proof that you are children, God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts crying out, ‘Abba Father!’. So you are no longer a slave, but a child and if a child then also an heir, through God…”

Freedom comes under the Law; freedom comes in Truth.

“Dear children, today I invite you to pray for peace. At this time, peace is threatened in a special way and I am seeking from you to renew fasting and prayer in your families. Dear children, I desire you to grasp the seriousness of the situation and that much of what will happen depends on your prayers, and you are praying a little bit! Dear children, I am with you and I am inviting you to begin to pray and fast seriously as in the first days of my coming. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (7/25/91)

Are we taking the message serious yet? Our future depends on our response to God’s call to conversion and our prayer. Live the message!

June 2, 2013 Medjugorje Message-In this Restless Time..

Jesus, you are my only peace in this restless time

Jesus, you are my only peace in this restless time

JUNE 2, 2013 MEDJUGORJE MESSAGE VIA MIRJANA

“Dear children, in this restless time, anew I am calling you to set out after my Son – to follow Him. I know of the pain, suffering and difficulties, but in my Son you will find rest; in Him you will find peace and salvation. My children, do not forget that my Son redeemed you by His Cross and enabled you, anew, to be children of God; to be able to, anew, call the Heavenly Father, “Father”. To be worthy of the Father, love and forgive, because your Father is love and forgiveness. Pray and fast, because that is the way to your purification, it is the way of coming to know and becoming cognizant of the Heavenly Father. When you become cognizant of the Father, you will comprehend that He is all you need. I, as a mother, desire my children to be in a community of one single people where the Word of God is listened to and carried out.* Therefore, my children, set out after my Son. Be one with Him. Be God’s children. Love your shepherds as my Son loved them when He called them to serve you. Thank you.”

*Our Lady said this resolutely and with emphasis.

Forgive us Our Debts; AS WE FORGIVE OTHERS

As I have done for you, so you must do for others

As I have done for you, so you must do for others

Reflection on May 2, 2013 Medjugorje Message

Dear Friends:

Like many who are voicing their thoughts about Our Lady’s recent message given to Mirjana on May 2, 2013, I also have been doing a full examination of conscience. Especially after her message of 4/25/13 when she also said that we are still far away from her.

Then I begin to wonder myself, how am I offending the Lord? Where am I judging? Where am I gossiping? How am I not loving? Am I heading down the path to perdition as she said many of her own children are doing?

Earlier this year, the Mother of God declared that ‘satan was cunning and leading many souls into perdition.” All we have to do is look around us and see all the meyhem and chaos that is going on with government, politics, world leaders, uprisings, hatreds, wars, persecutions, and all the wars in the family, family tree and more. Well now that puts it more into perspective doesn’t it?

But what about me personally? All war begets in the heart before it is manifested into the world, and around us. Something stirs inside of us when we just don’t like something, and then it begins to fester and grow, until we begin to get angry and more bent out of shape, which then causes divisions, distractions, then we accuse and start the battles. I’m sure you all know what I mean.

So now we have to see it from this view. The Mother of God, sent from heaven is coming to the earth to convey a message from God. God is looking upon the earth and what does He see and hear on this earth?

This is what God said through her in this message that comes from Heaven and how the world is offending the Lord in the present time.

“Dear children; Anew, I am calling you to love and not to judge. My Son, according to the will of the Heavenly Father, was among you to show you the way of salvation, to save you and not to judge you. If you desire to follow my Son, you will not judge but love like your Heavenly Father loves you. And when it is the most difficult for you, when you are falling under the weight of the cross do not despair, do not judge, instead remember that you are loved and praise the Heavenly Father because of His love. My children, do not deviate from the way on which I am leading you. Do not recklessly walk into perdition. May prayer and fasting strengthen you so that you can live as the Heavenly Father would desire; that you may be my apostles of faith and love; that your life may bless those whom you meet; that you may be one with the Heavenly Father and my Son. My children, that is the only truth, the truth that leads to your conversion, and then to the conversion of all those whom you meet – those who have not come to know my Son – all those who do not know what it means to love. My children, my Son gave you a gift of the shepherds. Take good care of them. Pray for them. Thank you.” ( May 2, 2013 )

When I prayed about this message in my own examination of conscience I was given a simple remedy. That remedy was the:

Prayer of St. Faustina for the Grace to Be Merciful to Others.

If one prays this prayer, then he/she will be conscious of how they in themselves are committing sin.

Friends, Our Lady is directing this to everyone. There is no one excluded. But she emphasized very clearly who she is speaking to; ‘those who desire to follow Jesus her Son’.

…If you desire to follow my Son, you will not judge but love like your Heavenly Father loves you. And when it is most difficult for you, when you are falling under the weight of the cross do not despair, do not judge, instead remember that you are loved, and praise the Heavenly Father because of His love….

We have much to be angry about. Sin is ugly and it has an ugly face. And we easily direct our hatred to those who commit such ugly offenses against us because we see their face, and not what is behind the face. We forget however, we also offend others, by our own self righteousness, boasting in ourselves thinking that we are all doing what we should be doing living out our faith and so on, while we get angry at those who are not. I encounter and have had many conversations about all the sinners in the Church, he/she does or does not like this person, this priest, this or that.

We forget that we are just these ones we complain about if it were not for the grace of God! What High expectations we put on others without them knowing we have placed them on them!

Let us not forget friends, the burden of responsibility falls on those who are in His grace. Those who have the light, and walk in truth to be good examples, of Christian love. Jesus loved us in our mess and in our sin. He came to us right where we were in our ugliness and raised us up, and taught us about His mercy and gave us a gift of conversion of heart to love him. We have to pray for the same grace for those who do not know Him.

Forgive me Lord!

Forgive me Lord!

We are called to love and forgive just as He has done for us, if you are walking with Jesus. Believe me I am preaching to myself here. But the time is urgent now. Just look around you and see how many unbelievers you encounter every day, beginning in the home. How are they going to know the love of God, if they are not experiencing it through the ones who say they love them.

I say this beginning with me. Dying to self, and conquering and overcoming all the pains and the wounds, and the hurts caused to us, to love another, is a heroic act.

But Our Lady made it clear, prayer and fasting and acts of penance is where the strength comes to do this.

We pray every day the Lord’s prayer to forgive us AS WE FORGIVE OTHERS. Here is a condition on the mercy of God. If we are not forgiving, neither will we be forgiven ourselves. We really need to check our hearts. I have posted not to long ago also Healing Prayer of Forgiveness that can be found in this sight. We really need to be working on our hearts in this time.

Pray for the grace to fast. On a separate post I will post St. Fuastina’s prayer to be merciful so all can refer when they find it difficult to exercise mercy. And let us all hold each other up in prayer in this difficult time.

To God be glory for His mercy and patience with us! Ave Maria!

Calling You Apostles of the Latter Times, part II

My kingdom on earth is my life in the human soul

My kingdom on earth is my life in the human soul

Continued from part I…

You will give the gift of Jesus through your own person. Jesus said to St. Faustina “My Kingdom on earth is my life in the human soul.”(Diary 1784)

Our Lady will give birth to the life of Jesus in your human soul. And this Jesus, the living Word made flesh will be birthed all more into the world, through your living flesh and the Word made flesh in you.

I repeat, Jesus said on Christmas day, “I am your peace…” and Our Lady echoes his word in how to not only carry the Divine peace of God in our hearts, so that His peace will come into this peaceless world. With that comes His strength and fortitude. We will be able to stand firm and confident all the more in the Lord as the trials come. We receive a peace that the world does not promise…this is DIVINE THAT ONLY COMES FROM GOD.

Friends, this is the peace the apostles had at Pentecost. Remember, they were in the upper room, in fear after Jesus was crucified. It wasn’t only until Pentecost the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and Jesus breathing on them that they were able to go out of themselves from that room in hiding and proclaim the gospel, even to foreign territories.

Come follow me

Come follow me

Our Lady says and repeats in her message, do not be afraid to open your hearts. You got to be empowered with the Holy Spirit. You need the Holy Spirit of Truth to convey the message, just the way Our Lady gives it. The Church needs a new dose of the Holy Ghost! Pray for the Holy Spirit to come, pray for a new outpouring of the spirit over you, your families, your parishes, and the world.

What is blocking us from acting on this call. FEAR! How many of you are afraid of the future? Look what is going on since all of you heard the message from Our Lady. Look at the visionaries. Every one of them are traveling and speaking around the globe. They are showing the world, it does not have to live in fear, but live with God. They are acting like the apostles of the time of Jesus, appearing in many places. They are the prophets, the apostles of our time.

We are called to do the same. Its by their witness friends, that show us how to live our lives. These visionaries, these dear chosen apostles of Our Lady have given up their lives to serve pilgrims, who day in and day out for 32+ years now welcome people in their home, speak to them, and leave their families to bring the message of Our Lady to the world. They are witness to hope. They are witness to Faith, and Charity. They go NOT AFRAID. Our Lady walks with them, and makes sure they accomplish what they are called to do for HER.

In this message Our Lady tells us how we can be her apostles. Prayer and reconciliation is the answer to how to put on her holy garments. With her help and God’s grace that she wins for us, We HAVE to defeat the sin in the heart and put it to death to allow the fruits of the spirit to abide in us. That means, every grace you seek, and are given, must be spent in works. Grace is useless unless it is put to work.

Keep praying for the Shepherds and your priests. We need them stronger than ever in this time to be victim priests with Jesus, and work tirelessly for the sake of the kingdom and salvation of souls. Support them by prayer, as they grow weary and tired pulled in many different directions. Do not judge them. They are chosen by God for their call, and the cross over them weighs heavy enough on them. Pray the Lord will enlighten them and strengthen them to live worthy of the call they have received, and the Holy Spirit guide them.

The Church of God, that is the Catholic Church has its work cut out for them. We are entering into a new time and phase of the call of Medjugorje. These are the days like the time of the apostles. It is time to act.

If you have been to Medjugorje, you above all have the utmost responsibility to act and live what you have received. The seeds of life have been planted in your heart. Do not let that seed die and go to waste, but let it sprout forth a new tree of Life for the Kingdom of God.

I close on this word of St. Louis deMonfort“True Devotion to Mary”. We are living these times now!

“Mary has produced together with the Holy Spirit the greatest thing which has been or ever will be – a God Man; and she will consequently produce the greatest saints that there will be in the end of time. The formation and the education of the great saints who shall come at the end of the world are reserved for her. For it is only that singular and miraculous Virgin who can produce in union with the Holy Spirit singular and extraordinary things.

I have said this would come to pass particularly at the end of the world and indeed presently, because the Most High with His holy Mother has to form for Himself great saint, who shall surpass most of the other saints in sanctity as much as the cedars of Lebanon outgrow the little shrubs. These great souls full of grace and zeal, shall be chosen to match themselves against the enemies of God, who shall rage on all side and they shall be singularly devout to our Blessed Lady, illuminated by her light, strengthened with her nourishment led by her spirit, supported by her arm and sheltered under her protection, so that they shall fight with one hand and build with the other.”

If there is any question to who you are in this time, reflect on the words of this great saint. You have been chosen for this time.

I call you to be my apostles; cooperate with me

I call you to be my apostles; cooperate with me

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)

Why Medjugorje is needed for the World – Part 2

According to God's plan I am with you to help you to have my Son...

Let us go back to visit the message the Queen of Peace gave to the world through Mirjana that I wrote about in Why Medjugorje for the World – Part 1.

The message was given in 1982 in the early days of the apparitions. Here is what Our Lady said for review:

“Excuse me for this, but you must realize that satan exists. One day he appeared before the throne of God and asked permission to submit the Church to a period of trail. God gave him permission to try the Church for one century. This century is under the power of the devil, but when the secrets confided to you come to pass, his power will be destroyed. Even now he is beginning to lose his power and has become aggressive. He is destroying marriages, creating divisions among priests and is responsible for obsessions and murder. You must protect yourselves against these things through fasting and prayer, especially community prayer. Carry blessed objects with you. Put them in your home, and restore the use of holy water.”

The Holy Spirit has led me to this message on several occasions, and I’ve taught it on several occasions as well. I already explained the prophetic meaning behind the history of the Church in Part I, and the plan of satan to dismantle the Universal Church.

However, for a deeper understanding of this message I was led by the Spirit to read the book of Job in the bible in relation to the suffering servant.

In this case as I pondered the scriptures of Job, I understood that the Church was Job the suffering servant including her members of the body. The Church having great wealth of spirit and material and its wealth of significance in the world was going to be tested by God and refined like gold to prove her fidelity to her spouse, Jesus Christ, and be found in the end spotless without blemish.

Job (the Church in this case); begins as the suffering servant was made known as one who feared God, was found blameless and upright. From the beginning of the book chapter 1 and 2, satan appeared before God’s throne to test God’s faithful servant.

Job spoke many significant words in this book trying to understand what was happening to him. But from the beginning what stood out were these two verses to me:

Job 1:21 “Naked I came forth from my Mother’s womb and naked shall I go back again. The Lord gave me and the Lord has taken away – blessed be the name of the Lord.”

and

Job 2:10 “We accept good things from God; should we not accept evil? Job said nothing sinful…”

When evil comes upon us, or we suffer because of evil influences, should we not accept it as coming from God?

God continued to allow satan to have his way with Job, testing him in great trials.

In the first chapter it explains how Job was most wealthy and had great things and many people subject to Him, and then in almost an instant it was taken away from him. But Job was still found faithful, and blessed the Lord realizing everything good comes from God. He was not attached to His material wealth, and found blameless in God’s eyes.

Then in chapter 2 and so on, Job was struck with plagues, diseases, but accepted all as coming from God. And again he blessed the Lord.

The friends of Job show up who then attempt to give him their worldly counsel-their own worldly wisdom, yet Job still withstands under great suffering the temptations to accuse God for his misfortune. And in the end when God saw it fit that Job was a faithful servant, God reveals Himself to His faithful servant and restores Him with more blessing than He had before.

Our Lady once said, “receive everything as if it comes from God…when trials come do not say O God, O Mother where are you. I only wait for you to give me your yes, so that I can give it to Jesus and He can bless you with what you need…”

Jesus will give what we need, not what we want from Him, but what we need for our salvation. It could be a deeper faith, greater strength, healing of physical or spiritual, strength in virtue and so on.

We can clearly see that the words of the Queen of Peace are fully manifested in the world today. Families are divided and divorces are occurring at a rapid rate. There is an outright assaults on the youth. There are divisions, murders, obsessions at epidemic proportions. Degenerations of the human family; disasters, wars occurring everywhere.

Realize however, when the secrets of Medjugorje come to pass, satans power will be destroyed, says the Queen of Peace. And the human person will have only himself, his sins, and God face to face. I shutter to think of the reality of this day when it comes.

Who will be able to stand before God in truth on this day?

SOMETHING TO PONDER FOR YOUR OWN PRAYER LIFE:

What is God doing in you in this time of Pentecost?

How are you being tested and tried in this time by God in your suffering? What is the fruit that is coming from your suffering?

Are you embracing your daily cross as if it comes from God as a gift to you?

Will you be found blameless when the Lord makes Himself known to you as His servant Job?

Be honest with yourself. Do not make joke of your salvation. In the end, there will be no one laughing when the truth is revealed.

Close the doors where satan wants to enter and destroy as the Queen of Peace describes above. Make use of the sacramentals as she suggested, and begin to work on your conversion, and protect yourselves. Your Mother is here to help you. Ave Maria
