The Exaltation of the Holy Cross!

(c)Mateo Ivankovic 2017 August 30, 1984 “Dear children! The cross was also in God’s plan when you built it. These days, especially, go on the mountain and pray before the Cross. I need your prayers. Thank you for having responded to my call.” J.M.J. September 14, 2017 The Exaltation of the Holy Cross Dear Family of Mary! Medjugorje is overshadowed by this huge Cross that was built at the summit of Mount Krizevac in 1933 by the villagers. The Cross proclaims that Christ is the Lord of this whole area. He is the Savior of the people and the hope of eternal life for them all. The Cross is held high above the village, as a sign to all! A sign of love and allegiance. Jesus is Savior and Lord! Our Lady once said that she prays before the Cross on Krizevac every day for her children. (We can join her in praying there through Mary TV’s live camera feed on Cross Mountain. Cross Mountain Let’s take time today to meditate on some of Our Lady’s messages about the Cross. They will lead us to meditate on the Cross in a more profound way. The Cross is the sign of Life for us! September 12, 1985 “Dear children! I wish to tell you that the Cross should be central these days. Pray especially before the Cross from which great graces are coming. Now in your homes make a special consecration to the Cross. Promise that you will neither offend Jesus nor abuse the Cross. Thank you for having responded to my call.” March 25, 1997 “Dear children! Today, in a special way, I invite you to take the cross in the hands and to meditate on the wounds of Jesus. Ask of Jesus to heal your wounds, which you, dear children, during your life sustained because of your sins or the sins of your parents. Only in this way, dear children, you will understand that the world is in need of healing of faith in God the Creator. By Jesus’ passion and death on the cross, you will understand that only through prayer you, too, can become true apostles of faith; when, in simplicity and prayer, you live faith which is a gift. Thank you for having responded to my call.” March 25, 2015 “Dear children! Also today the Most High permits me to be with you and to lead you on the way of conversion. Many hearts have shut themselves to grace and have become deaf to my call. You, little children, pray and fight against temptation and all the evil plans which the devil offers you through modernism. Be strong in prayer and with the cross in your hands pray that evil may not use you and may not conquer in you. I am with you and pray for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” October 2, 2009 “Dear Children, As I look at you, my heart seizes with pain. Where are you going my children? Have you sunk so deeply into sin that you do not know how to stop yourselves? You justify yourselves with sin and live according to it. Kneel down beneath the Cross and look at my Son. He conquered sin and died so that you, my children, may live. Permit me to help you not to die but to live with my Son forever. Thank you!” February 02, 2013 “Dear children, love is bringing me to you – the love which I desire to teach you also – real love; the love which my Son showed you when He died on the Cross out of love for you; the love which is always ready to forgive and to ask for forgiveness. How great is your love? My motherly heart is sorrowful as it searches for love in your hearts. You are not ready to submit your will to God’s will out of love. You cannot help me to have those who have not come to know God’s love to come to know it, because you do not have real love. Consecrate your hearts to me and I will lead you. I will teach you to forgive, to love your enemies and to live according to my Son. Do not be afraid for yourselves. In afflictions my Son does not forget those who love. I will be beside you. I will implore the Heavenly Father for the light of eternal truth and love to illuminate you. Pray for your shepherds so that through your fasting and prayer they can lead you in love. Thank you.” We adore you, oh Christ, and we bless you, because by Your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world. In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan ©Mary TV 2017

Give me your hands!

(c)Mateo Ivankovic 2016 J.M.J. September 13, 2017 Saint John Chrysostom Dear Family of Mary! Jesus speaks to us today in the Gospel, straight talk about what matters: And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said: “Blessed are you poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you that hunger now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you that weep now, for you shall laugh. Blessed are you when men hate you, and when they exclude you and revile you, and cast out your name as evil, on account of the Son of man! “Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven; for so their fathers did to the prophets. But woe to you that are rich, for you have received your consolation. Woe to you that are full now, for you shall hunger. Woe to you that laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep. Woe to you, when all men speak well of you, for so their fathers did to the false prophets.” (Lk 6:20-26) Our Lady, like her Son, also tells us like it is. She wants us to know what matters: July 2, 2007 “Dear children! In the great love of God, I come to you today to lead you on the way of humility and meekness. The first station on that way, my children, is confession. Reject your arrogance and kneel down before my Son. Comprehend, my children, that you have nothing and you can do nothing. The only thing that you have and that you possess is sin. Be cleansed and accept meekness and humility. My Son could have won with strength, but He chose meekness, humility and love. Follow my Son and give me your hands so that, together, we may climb the mountain* and win. Thank you.”*Our Lady referred to this as a spiritual climb. What matters? Eternity with God in Heaven! How do we get there? By repenting and by imitating Jesus, following Him, walking His way, carrying our crosses, and growing in meekness and humility. We will climb the mountain of holiness, and win! In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan ©Mary TV 2017
