    Seer On How We Know It’s From God

    April 17, 2020 by sd

    [​IMG]

    [adapted from The God of Healing]

    [​IMG]“When something comes from God, you have harmony, great joy, and a great peace,” said seer Vicka Ivankovic Matovic, the famous seer at Medjugorje.

    “You can’t feel well if you have fear in your heart.

    “When you feel fear, confusion, and anguish, it comes from the enemy. You can’t trust your feelings if you do not have inner harmony. For sure, suffering cannot be explained; it can only be lived in one’s own heart. When the Lord gives us a suffering—a cross, pain—this is really a big gift.

    [​IMG]“We often think, how can sickness be a gift? But it’s a big gift! Only God knows why He gives this gift and only He knows the reason for when He takes it back. It is only up to us how we are ready to accept this. It is enough to say, ‘Thank you God for this gift, that you still have something that you want to give to me, I am ready to receive it. I ask only your strength and courage so that I may carry on.’

    “And also the Madonna has told us, ‘you don’t know how great is the value of your suffering in the eyes of God.’ There are different kinds of suffering: there is the suffering that God gives and there is the suffering that we make for ourselves, and these are two different things, they don’t have the same value. We must try to accept that which the Lord wants and we must give thanks and when one gives thanks for this great gift, then graces and fruits and everything come sooner. And then we can’t say ‘I’m suffering, I’m in pain,’ God knows this: accept it, don’t talk about it. One who is still able to speak isn’t suffering.

    Suffering is to be lived in our souls and in our hearts. God is always ready to give healing. But for God it’s not so easy for him to give us this gift because there are problems. What are these problems? It is like this: many times when there is some difficulty or suffering for our children, a husband, or one of our neighbors, we beg God with great energy to heal their suffering; we are ready to accept anything, do everything, get on our knees, pray for hours but only for that particular moment.

    “The Madonna is ready to give the grace that is being requested. And many times the grace is given in order to show that person that God is near. But the Madonna also said that those graces are not to be played around with, because the Madonna said that after receiving a miracle, some people behave worse than before and then the next time they need a special grace, they pray expecting t[​IMG]o be satisfied a second time; they think, ‘You gave me [a healing] once before so must give me [a healing] again today.’ In this way we start playing around with these graces from God.

    “Already the Madonna said to us, ‘there is no problem for graces; I am able to give them; through my Son I can pray for these gifts and give them; but the problem is with your hearts. You all ask for healing of everything in the body, but too few ask for healing of the heart. When your hearts begin to heal, then your bodies will begin to heal.’ We must pray to have a lively faith. We should pray every day for this gift and this gift will grow every day in our hearts.”

    "Dear Children!

    May this time be an incentive for personal conversion for you. Pray, little children, in solitude, to the Holy Spirit to strengthen you in faith and trust in God, that you may be worthy witnesses of the love which God bestows upon you through my presence.
    Little children, do not permit trials to harden your heart and for prayer to be like a desert. Be a reflection of God's love and witness the Risen Jesus by your lives.
    I am with you and I love all of you with my motherly love.
    Thank you for having responded to my call."

    I know the church hasn't given it's final blessing on Medjugjore yet, but some of these simple messages strike me as so very profound and beautiful. It really seems supernatural to me.

    Dear children, this is a time of thanksgiving.

    Today, I am looking for love from you. Do not look for imperfections in others and do not judge others. I want you to love and that you transmit the truth, because truth is eternal, unchangeable and always genuine.

    Be the carriers of the light of my Son and break the dark which wants to take you over and take you far away from my Son. Do not have fear. I am with you.

    Thank you for having responded to my call.

    “Dear children! Pray with me for a new life for all of you. In your hearts , little children, you know what needs to be changed. Return to God and His Commandments, so that the Holy Spirit may change your lives and the face of this earth, which is in need of renewal in the spirit. Little children, be prayer for all those who do not pray; be joy for all those who do not see the way out; be carriers of light in the darkness of this peaceless time. Pray and seek the help and protection of the saints so that you also could yearn for Heaven and Heavenly realities. I am with you and am protecting and blessing all of you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
     
  8. the novena to the Queen of Peace starts today June 15th.
    I will post the prayers every day in this thread. This is from the International Internet Prayer Group joined with the Information Center of Medjugorje. For people wondering about the purpose of the novena, there are some questions and answers
    What to offer to Our Lady for the 39th Anniversary of Her apparitions
    What could we offer to Our Lady for the anniversary of Her apparitions? This is the question many pilgrims ask, and we answer with another question: Wouldn’t the dearest gift be if we would really start to live Her messages?

    The main theme of Our Lady’s messages is the call to peace and reconciliation, but She underlines very often that we can obtain them only through prayer. This is why She calls us unceasingly to pray, to renew prayer until it becomes a joy for us, to pray with the heart…

    We have composed a simple novena with the deep desire to offer something special to Our Lady for this Anniversary, something that unites all Her children in the whole world, something that helps us to live Her messages.

    Why a Novena?
    The idea for the Novena comes from the New Testament, when Mary and the Apostles, 40 days after the Resurrection of Jesus, remained in prayer for nine consecutive days. They prayed with one heart and persevered in prayer, waiting for the coming of the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete, that was promised them, and that filled them “when the time of Pentecost was fulfilled” (Ac 2,1). Since then, Novenas have become a frequent practice in the tradition of the Church. Also in Medjugorje, Our Lady calls us: “Dear children, offer novenas, making sacrifices wherein you feel the most bound.” (July 25, 1993)

    How to pray this Novena?
    One special intention is devoted to each day. We pray for this intention, meditating on the texts that are proposed, through the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary. The first text is a passage from the Gospel, the second - a message of Our Lady from one of the previous anniversaries, and the third - a passage from the Catechism of the Catholic Church. These have been chosen to give a threefold insight into the prayer intention: A Gospel, a Marian (through the messages of Medjugorje) and an Ecclesiastical insight, to help the person who is leading the prayer and introducing the Mysteries. The passages from the Catechism on prayer show us the richness, the depth and the immensity of the experience of Christian prayer, of which Our Lady reminds us here in Medjugorje. The concluding prayer unites all the intentions of prayer regarding the intention for the day.

    Together towards something new

    We believe that this unity in prayer will bring a new experience of the love of God, which has been poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. This experience is always a new beginning, a passage to a new level of existence. Real wars, wars of our doubt and our incredulity can be stopped, and even natural laws can be changed through prayer. We sincerely hope that our common prayer, united in the Heart of Mary for the victory of Her Immaculate Heart, will obtain a conversion in our hearts and in our lives and bring forth the most pleasing and dearest gift to Our Lady.

    1st day
    WE PRAY FOR THE VISIONARIES

    1. Prayer to the Queen of Peace
    PRAYER TO THE QUEEN OF PEACE
    Mary, Mother of God and Our Mother, Queen of Peace!
    You came to us to lead us to God.
    Obtain for us the grace
    not only to say:
    “Be it done to me according to Your will!”,
    but to live it, as you did.
    Into your hands we put our hands,
    so that you may lead us to Him
    amidst these afflictions and woes.

    sweet unction and true love.

    Thou Who are called the Paraclete,
    from Thy bright heavenly throne,
    come, take possession of our souls,
    and make them all Thine own.

    Thou who are sevenfold in Thy grace,
    finger of God's right hand,
    His promise, teaching little ones
    to speak and understand.

    O guide our minds with Thy blest light,
    with love our hearts inflame;
    and with Thy strength, which never decays,
    confirm our mortal frame.

    Far from us drive our deadly foe,
    true peace unto us bring,
    and through all perils lead us safe
    beneath Thy sacred wing.

    Through Thee may we the Father know,
    through Thee the eternal Son,
    and Thee the Spirit of them both,
    thrice-blessed Three in One.

    All glory to the Father be,
    with his co-equal Son:
    the same to Thee, great Paraclete,
    while endless ages run. Amen.

    Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful, and enkindle in them the fire of Your love.

    - Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created.

    - And You shall renew the face of the earth.

    Let us pray: God, who taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant that by the gift of the same Spirit we may be always truly wise and ever rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Texts for Meditation

    Jesus said to his disciples: “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the law and in the prophets and psalms must be fulfilled.” Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures. And he said to them: “thus it is written that the Messiah would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins, would be preached in his name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. And behold I am sending the promise of my Father upon you; but stay in the city until you are clothed with the power from on high.” (Lk 24,44-49)

    "Dear children! Today I thank you for living and witnessing to my messages with your life. Little children, be strong and pray so that prayer may give you strength and joy. Only in this way will each of you be mine and I will lead you on the way of salvation. Little children, pray and with your life bear witness to my presence here. May each day be a joyful witness for you of God's love. Thank you for having responded to my call." (Message, June 25, 1999)

    "Prayer is the raising of one's mind and heart to God or the requesting of good things from God." But when we pray, do we speak from the height of our pride and will, or "out of the depths" of a humble and contrite heart? He who humbles himself will be exalted; humility is the foundation of prayer, only when we humbly acknowledge that "we do not know how to pray as we ought," are we ready to receive freely the gift of prayer. "Man is a beggar before God." (2559)

    3. Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary

    Texts for Meditation

    Jesus said to his disciples: “Amen, amen I say to you, whoever believes in me will do the works that I do, and will do greater ones than these, because I am going to the Father. And whatever you ask in my name, I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it.” (Jn 14,12-14)

    "Dear children! Today I am with you in a special way and I bring you my motherly blessing of peace. I pray for you and I intercede for you before God, so that you may comprehend that each of you is a carrier of peace. You cannot have peace if your heart is not at peace with God. That is why, little children, pray, pray, pray, because prayer is the foundation of your peace. Open your heart and give time to God so that He will be your friend. When true friendship with God is realized, no storm can destroy it. Thank you for having responded to my call." (Message, June 25, 1997)

    "If you knew the gift of God!" The wonder of prayer is revealed beside the well where we come seeking water: there, Christ comes to meet every human being. It is he who first seeks us and asks us for a drink. Jesus thirsts; his asking arises from the depths of God's desire for us. Whether we realize it or not, prayer is the encounter of God's thirst with ours. God thirsts that we may thirst for him. "You would have asked him, and he would have given you living water." Paradoxically our prayer of petition is a response to the plea of the living God: "They have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hewn out cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that can hold no water!" Prayer is the response of faith to the free promise of salvation and also a response of love to the thirst of the only Son of God. (2560 2561)

May they further discover the power of faith through which You grant them whatever they ask of You. May they also become true carriers of peace, fruits of their deeply felt friendship with You. Amen.

    3. Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary

    Texts for Meditation

    Jesus said to his disciples: “I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing. Anyone who does not remain in me will be thrown out like a branch and wither; people will gather them and throw them into a fire and they will be burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you want and it will be done for you. By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples. As the Father loves me, so also I love you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy might be in you and your joy might be complete.” (Jn 15,5-8)

    "Dear children! Today I thank you for all the sacrifices you have offered me these days. Little children, I invite you to open yourselves to me and to decide for conversion. Your hearts, little children, are still not completely open to me and therefore, I invite you again to open to prayer so that in prayer the Holy Spirit will help you, that your hearts become of flesh and not of stone. Little children, thank you for having responded to my call and for having decided to walk with me toward holiness." (Message, June 25, 1996)

    Where does prayer come from? Whether prayer is expressed in words or gestures, it is the whole man who prays. But in naming the source of prayer, Scripture speaks sometimes of the soul or the spirit, but most often of the heart (more than a thousand times). According to Scripture, it is the heart that prays. If our heart is far from God, the words of prayer are in vain. (2562)

    The Medjugorje Hymn
    To the Mother and Queen of Peace


    We come to you, dearest Mother,

    from all quarters, from all nations;

    bringing to you all our troubles

    ardent wishes, aspirations.


    Look upon us and console us,

    lay your gentle hands upon us;

    intercede with Jesus for us,

    Mother of Peace, do pray for us.


    All the faithful look up to you,

    you the lodestar of salvation;

    cleanse, embrace us, we pray to you,

    bless all in the congregation.


    Bijakovo, Medjugorje,

    bearing witness to your beauty

    to your name and to your glory.


    For all your love, dearest Mother

    all the wonders that we have seen,

    we give to you solemn promise

    to be better than we have been.

    Concluding prayer: Thank You, Lord, for Your love, thank You for the call to remain with the heart in Your love and to bear much fruit. Thank You for having chosen this parish in a special way, by giving it to Your Mother, the Queen of Peace, with the mission to call the world to peace and reconciliation, to conversion through the renewal of fasting and prayer… Thank You for the openness of each heart, which knew how to receive Her, and allowed Her to make each of them a visible sign for those who come here. Today we pray to You, o Lord: make this parish an even greater sign of the Kingdom of God, and help the parishioners to become joyful and show holy fruits of the presence of Our Lady. Amen.

    WE PRAY FOR ALL LEADERS IN THE CHURCH
    1. Prayer to the Queen of Peace
    Mary, Mother of God and Our Mother, Queen of Peace!
    You came to us to lead us to God.
    Obtain for us the grace
    not only to say:
    “Be it done to me according to Your will!”,
    but to live it, as you did.
    Into your hands we put our hands,
    so that you may lead us to Him
    amidst these afflictions and woes.
    Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

    Creed, 7 Our Fathers, 7 Hail Marys, 7 Glory Bes….

    2. Veni Creator Spiritus
    Come Holy Spirit, Creator, come
    best gift of God above,
    the living spring, the living fire,
    sweet unction and true love.

    Thou Who are called the Paraclete,
    from Thy bright heavenly throne,
    come, take possession of our souls,
    and make them all Thine own.

    Thou who are sevenfold in Thy grace,
    finger of God's right hand,
    His promise, teaching little ones
    to speak and understand.

    O guide our minds with Thy blest light,
    with love our hearts inflame;
    and with Thy strength, which never decays,
    confirm our mortal frame.

    Far from us drive our deadly foe,
    true peace unto us bring,
    and through all perils lead us safe
    beneath Thy sacred wing.

    Through Thee may we the Father know,
    through Thee the eternal Son,
    and Thee the Spirit of them both,
    thrice-blessed Three in One.

    All glory to the Father be,
    with his co-equal Son:
    the same to Thee, great Paraclete,
    while endless ages run. Amen.

    Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful, and enkindle in them the fire of Your love.

    - Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created.

    - And You shall renew the face of the earth.

    Let us pray: God, who taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant that by the gift of the same Spirit we may be always truly wise and ever rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    3. Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary

    Texts for Meditation

    Jesus said to his disciples: “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (Jn 8,12)

    "Dear Children! Today I am happy to see you in such great numbers, that you have responded and have come to live my messages. I invite you, little children, to be my joyful carriers of peace in this troubled world. Pray for peace so that as soon as possible a time of peace, which my heart waits impatiently for, may reign. I am near to you, little children, and intercede for every one of you before the Most High. I bless you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call." (Message, June 25, 1995)

    The heart is the dwelling-place where I am, where I live; according to the Semitic or Biblical expression, the heart is the place "to which I withdraw." The heart is our hidden centre, beyond the grasp of our reason and of others; only the Spirit of God can fathom the human heart and know it fully. The heart is the place of decision, deeper than our psychic drives. It is the place of truth, where we choose life or death. It is the place of encounter, because as image of God we live in relation: it is the place of covenant. (2563)

    3. Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary

    Texts for Meditation

    Jesus said to his disciples: “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and that of the gospel will save it. What profit is there for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life? (Mk 8,34-38)

    "Dear children! Today I am happy, even if in my heart there is still a little sadness for all those who have started on this path and then have left it. My presence here is to take you on a new path, the path to salvation. This is why I call you, day after day to conversion. But if you do not pray, you cannot say that you are on the way to being converted. I pray for you and I intercede to God for peace; first peace in your hearts and also peace around you, so that God may be your peace. Thank you for having responded to my call." (Message, June 25, 1992)

    Christian prayer is a covenant relationship between God and man in Christ. It is the action of God and of man, springing forth from both the Holy Spirit and ourselves, wholly directed to the Father, in union with the human will of the Son of God made man. (2564)
