December 8, 1981 – Message from Our Lady of Medjugorje

Responding to a question from the visionaries with respect to their future: “I would like for all of you to become priests and religious, but only if you desire it. You are free. It is up to you to choose. If you are experiencing difficulties or if you need something, come to me. If you do not have the strength to fast on bread and water, you can give up a number of things. It would be a good thing to give up television, because after seeing some programs, you are distracted and unable to pray. You can give up alcohol, cigarettes and other pleasures. You yourselves know what you have to do.” On this day of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, the Gospa was serious; she knelt down with arms extended while praying: “My beloved Son, I beseech you to be willing to forgive the world its great sin through which it offends you.” Tuesday, December 8, 1981 (Feast of the Immaculate Conception)
