    "Dear children! I am with you all these years to lead you to the way of salvation. Return to my Son; return to prayer and fasting. Little children, permit for God to speak to your heart, because Satan is reigning and wants to destroy your lives and the earth on which you walk. Be courageous and decide for holiness. You will see conversion in your hearts and families; prayer will be heard; God will hear your cries and give you peace. I am with you and am blessing you all with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call."

    One thing I found interesting was when Mirjana was asked about this virus crisis, she said it came from Satan. So, does this mean it’s not a chastisement from God? Does it mean it’s man made and not a supernatural act from God?
     
  5. You ask a great question. Marija commented on the corona virus and she said that it was not from God. Sister Emmanuel who resides in Medjugorje and comments about the happenings also has stated that God didn't send this to us. The visionaries and those who comment on the content of the messages always emphasize how much God loves us and they urge us to view God as desiring our holiness rather than thinking of Him as an angry chastiser. I struggle with conflicting thoughts all the time.

    When we allow evil and sin to come into our lives and laws and schools and hospitals (abortions, euthanasie) etc etc, we say NO to the protection of God and automatically EVIL, SATAN approaches us and manipulates human being to do evil acts. We ourselves allowed satan to cause all that evil because we rejected God in our lives, in our families and so we push also away His Goodness. God created us free, we have the choice to choose between Him and satan. If we choose for satan we will undergo the consequences of our bad choice. We cannot blame God for that. He respects our free will and will therefore never impose His Love on us. He permits that satan attacks us because we wanted satan, not God….. If we return back to God, then God will destroy immediately the evil in our lives. But how many of those in the world return to God ? Even now...
    Therefore, it is not a supernatural act from God but an evil act from satan who inspires human beings to do evil acts.

    That's the part that stood out to me too. Our Lady tells us what to do and the results we will see. It's something that I have been contemplating from St' Faustina's diary lately that is much like this.


    Know this, My daughter: if you strive for perfection you will sanctify many souls; and if you do not strive for sanctity, by the same token, many souls will remain imperfect. Know that their perfection will depend on your perfection, and the greater part of the responsibility for these souls will fall on you (Diary, 1165).

    Something that stood out to me was Satan wants to destroy the land you walk on. What do you suppose that means??:unsure:

    A Strong Message

    March 25, 2020 by sd

    [​IMG]

    There it was, directly from Mary’s mouth, one of her most powerful messages in years, on a great feast, the Annunciation, at the major apparition site of Medjugorje, the initial phase of which has been authenticated by a formal Vatican commission.

    “Dear children!” the Blessed Mother intoned. “I am with you all these years to lead you to the way of salvation. Return to my Son; return to prayer and fasting. Little children, permit God to speak to your heart, because Satan is reigning and wants to destroy your lives and the earth on which you walk.

    “Be courageous and decide for holiness. You will see conversion in your hearts and families; prayer will be heard; God will hear your cries and give you peace. I am with you and am blessing you all with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

    [​IMG]Coming at what may be one of the most important or at the least one of the strangest junctures in world history, it was loaded — was this monthly missive, Wednesday, to seer Marija Pavlovic Lunetti — with drama. “Prayer and fasting” was how Mark 9:2 phrased it before the “fasting” was removed from most Catholic bibles by scholars.

    That Mary was asking us — humankind, especially Christians, and most particularly Catholics — to “return” to fasting means, by and large, that we have been neglecting it. (Restaurants were full; now they are empty.)

    Powerful words. Authentic ones. We ignore them at our peril.

    No human concocted them.

    Now, the hour grows late for those on the side of Jesus.

    Satan is at the helm of human systems, of the societies of mankind, of cultures, she is warning, again, at Medjugorje, the first apparitions of which were authenticated by a panel of five cardinals, an archbishop, and seven other clergy of four years of intense investigation.

    “A great struggle” was “about to unfold,” she said in those early days — when she likewise had warned that Satan “reigns over the whole world” (1987). With each year since, we have drawn closer to the apex.

    He has deceived the non-believers. He has deceived believers. He has deceived even the elect (Matthew 24:24). Prayer and fasting, she says, overcomes the Lie; it means “returning to her Son.”

    For the devil wants to “destroy your lives,” Our Blessed Mother tells us.

    “Satan is reigning and wants to destroy your lives and the earth on which you walk” is an allusion to destruction not just of human lives, but the physical world that our Good God, in His genius, in His beauty, and Power, in its wonderment (and ecology), created.

    [​IMG]And so we mull it over at this time when meddling with and destroying nature is causing tragic effects around the world, perhaps even in the way of a virus that may have originated with exotic animals stripped from nature and sold on Chinese markets as delicacies (or in a laboratory).

    Materialism. Hatred. Abortion. These are his markers. So are lying, chaos, and division. Degradation of the environment. Satan reigns through these.

    To repeat: the hour grows late.

    When we fast and pray from the heart, God speaks to our hearts; we are not misled. Many today, whether liberal, moderate, or conservative, rich, middle class, or poor, have been hoodwinked by the evil spirit, who, the Blessed Mother says — in a phrase that should jolt all sides — “is reigning” [which means he is in charge]. Sister Lucia dos Santos of Fátima warned in the 1940s that we were in the midst of an epic “decisive” battle against the devil, and as she pointed out eighty years ago: a decisive one means one side or the other wins.

    Careful about worldly views. About chaos.

    Careful not to neglect the interior life. (Be strict!)

    Only with prayer and fasting will the truth come to you; will you have clarity; and only with truth comes peace and health.

    This is a link from Mark Mallett's new page, "Countdown to the Kingdom". This one is related to Fr. Michel Rodrigue. Very interesting and relates so much of the mystery and blessings, esp. for priests, that is present there and continues outward:

  13. The visionary Marija turns 55 today. From the Italian website Medjugorjetuttiigiorni.com
    Marija was born on 04/01/1965 in Bijacovici, married since 1993, has four children and lives in Monza, Italy.
    From June 25, 1981 she has had daily apparitions that still continue at 18.40 hours (6:40 pm).


    From 03/01/1984 to 08/01/1987 Every Thursday the Virgin has entrusted a message for the parish and from January 25 ,1987 communicates the monthly message to be broadcast to the whole world, also the intention entrusted by Madonna to pray for religious and consecrated persons and for the souls in Purgatory.

    Asked about how the Madonna appears, Marija says she is beautiful, of a beauty that is hard to describe: has blue eyes, black hair, a long dress that is gray and a long white veil that covers her head, around which there it is a crown of twelve stars.

    On major feast days like Christmas the Madonna's dress is gold. She is always resting on a cloud.

    In the years 1981- 1985 Marija submitted together with the other seers to numerous tests and clinical studies by teams of medical specialists of international renown, and subsequently to other examinations in 2005 by the French Professor Philipe Loron renowned neurologist, who concluded the seers are physically and mentally normal.

    Marija says that all the visionaries have begun to witness with their lives the messages that Our Lady gave them. She mentions that it is a great responsibility but also a great joy and to be at the service of Our Lady requires humility.

    She says that the desire of the Madonna is to form prayer groups in families and in parishes and pray at least three hours a day because we must not tire of thanking the Lord through prayer.
    The messages that the Virgin calls constantly and wants to be experienced by all of us are humble prayer with the heart, Peace, Confession, the Conversion, the Eucharist and fasting. They should be placed at the center of our lives. They are simple but profound messages are for all those who want to welcome them and live them, to start and continue a journey of faith and holiness.
    Each person must be an encouragement and witness to others their own experiences with God without fear. Through prayer we open ourselves to Him, we open our hearts, we learn to worship Him through the sacraments, to thank Him for everything He gives us and does for us.
    Peace must reign in our hearts, peace is the fruit of forgiveness and prayer with the heart and without peace in our hearts we can not reach God.



    The prayer of the Holy Rosary to Our Lady is the favorite and in addition to the joyful, sorrowful and glorious was also invited to recite those of light, created by Pope John Paul II.
    It is through the Holy Rosary that we reflect upon the life of Jesus.
    Marija says that Scripture is also important, it should be kept in the house next to the crucifix and read in the family. Blessed objects and sacramentals must be esteemed as a sign of faith in God.
    The sacrament of Reconciliation is essential to achieve conversion and faith. The Virgin Mary suggests at least once a month.
    The Mass is the highlight of the Christian life where through the Eucharist we are given Jesus who is the joy of life, inner peace, support in our misery and suffering.
    The fasting on bread and water on Wednesdays and Fridays is encouraged. Fasting is a powerful weapon against Satan. The Virgin said in a message that even wars can be stopped by fasting.
    The presence today of the Virgin Mary among us is a great gift because it allows us to grow in faith and become better through her advice.

    Mirjana Speaks on Forgiveness

    The following was taken from a question and answer session with Mirjana in November of 2018.

    Q. One of the men who interrogated you came back and apologized to you.
    A. Miki [the translator]: "Many of them came back to apologize after the war.
    Q. That was my question – whether others have come back to apologize for the harsh treatment?
    A. To be honest with you, I forgave them right away. Because Our Lady invites us to forgive. And She says that we cannot follow Jesus if we are not ready to forgive. And, while bad things were happening to me in Sarajevo, I used to forgive immediately. Maybe I was even a little selfish, because I wanted just love to reign in my heart. Not revenge. Not hatred. I just wanted Jesus in my heart. So, when the first person came to ask me for forgiveness, I didn't even know who that person was because I forgave so much that I completely forgot him. Only through his explanations, I comprehended, finally, what he was talking about.

    But, one of them was interesting. He brought me a cassette recording from an interrogation. And, on that one, I heard my voice as a little girl. And those policemen asked me, "What did you see?" I said, "I saw Our Lady!" And then a policeman told me, "You saw $#!%!" And I said, "No, $#!% is the one that I am looking at right now." But, in order to describe or explain this to you, I was not especially brave. But I was convinced that they would kill me anyway. It is better to be killed with my head up and not that they humiliate me. So, in a certain way, I was kind of proud, and I felt as if I was helping my Jesus to carry His Cross. And that policeman, when he brought this cassette recording, he said to me, "At that time, I already wanted to shake your hand, to tell you, 'Oh, congratulations!'... but I was not allowed to. But now I desire to do that."
    But, you see, it is not only visionaries who are like this. Everybody in the village was like that. Because in communism, you simply have to choose: God or power. Here, everybody decided for God. And they had to do everything on their own. Country never helped you. If you want to have a road, you have to build it on your own. If you want to have a telephone, if you want electricity, water – you have to do it on your own.

    "Forgive and you will be forgiven"
    (Lk 6:37).


    And also, many people simply disappeared overnight.
    They would be taken away by communists, and they would say to their wives, "If you even cry in public tomorrow, or if you dress in black, your son might disappear next night." But, in spite of this, nobody said, "I do not want God." Everybody went behind God. For example, when apparitions started, even military came into the village, and then they occupied the church with the automatic guns. Then our priest asked them, "Can I please enter and turn on the bells? (Because Masses do not happen.) They said, "Yes, you may." But if you turn on the bells, and people who are in the fields working heard bells, they said, "Our priest is calling us. Nothing else matters." All the soldiers saw like 1,000 people, unarmed, gathering around church. They couldn't shoot, because how would they explain this to the world? And then they reopened the church. I mean, I was not especially brave; everybody was brave at that time.

    “There never was an age such as this one, never before was God honored and respected less than now, never before have so few prayed to Him; everything seems to be more important than God. This is the reason why she cries so much. The number of unbelievers is becoming greater and greater. As they endeavor for a better life, to such people, God Himself is superfluous and dispensable.”

    I kinda agree...but there is a group of everyday pray warriors, throughout the world. Some on this very site. I think there are some very special people all around us. Most will never be known. But for that person that wakes up in the middle of night to pray rosary. God sees you.

    MEDJUGORJE, 13 April 2020 – On Easter morning, Sunday, April 12, at Podbrdo in Medjugorje, a group of believers who have gathered every day for the past five years at the statue of Our Lady and prayed the rosary together, gathered once again.

    But this time, in celebration of the most important Christian holiday and with a prayer to end the coronavirus epidemic, they made a huge rosary ballon, which they symbolically released into the air from the apparition site.

    The small group started to make the rosary of pink and blue balloons at 9 a.m., and an hour later, adhering to the precautionary measures in place due to the epidemic, they managed to merge the balloons into a large rosary and released it into the air at 10 a.m.

    “We met on Easter today, at the statue of Our Lady at Podbrdo, joined the rosary and tied a miracle medal to it, and at about 10 o’clock we first prayed the rosary and then with a prayer let our big rosary balloon into the air. As the Rosary ascended, we prayed for the cessation of this terrible epidemic faced by us here in Medjugorje, but also by people around the world,” Kristijan Lopac, one of the believers who prays the rosary in Podbrdo every day, explained.

    Kristijan moved to Medjugorje a month ago, and four years ago he decided to return from his native Berlin to Croatia and start a new life in his homeland. Kristijan had the initial idea of making a large rosary ballon in Medjugorje this Easter and was assisted by several members of the Our Lady of Medjugorje Prayer Group.

    The group also brought a large canvas banner yesterday with the words “He is risen!” and “The Greatest Love Story” written on it.

    “As soon as we heard Kristijan’s proposal, we joined this symbolic initiative. This is all for Our Lady and Our Lady’s intentions and for the glory of Our Lady and the Lord,” says Dario Sego from Medjugorje, who was joined also by Patrik Jerkovic and Marin Planinic, all members of the Our Lady of Medjugorje Prayer Group in creating the balloon, and Niksa Batinovic who created the banner.

    The slogan they highlighted on the banner was created by Ines Boskovic from Mostar, a returner from Australia. “When I heard about the idea, I immediately liked it, and in these days of isolation, we wanted to send a message from our Medjugorje to the world. Jesus had so much love for us and he gave his life for us and this is truly the ‘greatest love story’, as we pointed out on the banner,” explained Ines.

    “Medjugorje, together with Bijakovici and Podbrdo, is the most special place in the world for me – a place of prayer, a place of love and peace. For us believers, today is more than ever a place of great comfort. And it is from this holy place that we have sent to the world a call to common prayer at the time of the coronavirus epidemic. Let us all pray together throughout the world for the kingdom of God, take the rosary in our hands and pray that the Lord and Our Lady be glorified through this situation,” Kristijan concludes.
