April 2, 2018 – Message from Our Lady of Medjugorje

Our Lady’s message of April 2nd, 2018: Dear children, Through the great love of the Heavenly Father I am beside you as your mother and you are beside me as my children, as apostles of my love whom I ceaselessly gather around me. My children, you are those who, along with prayer, need to completely surrender to my Son so that you may no longer live but my Son may live in you – so that all those who do not know my Son may see Him in you and come to desire to know Him. Pray that in you they may see resolute humility and goodness, a readiness to serve others; that in you they may see that you live your vocation in the world with the heart, in communion with my Son; that in you they may see meekness, tenderness and love for my Son as well as for all brothers and sisters. Apostles of my love, you must pray much and cleanse your hearts so that you may be the first to walk on the way of my Son, that you may be the just who are united with the justice of my Son. My children, as apostles of my love, you must be united in the communion which emanates from my Son, so that my children who do not know my Son may recognize the communion of love and may come to desire to walk on the way of life, the way of unity with my Son. Thank you.

Decide for my Son!

  (c)Mateo Ivankovic 2018 April 10, 2018 Dear Family of Mary! Last night (on the Solemnity of the Annunciation) Ivan Dragicevic met with his prayer group at the Blue Cross for prayer. Our Lady came to him during their prayer (approximately 10:00 pm). Here is what Ivan shared after his encounter with Our Lady: Our Lady came to us joyful and happy. And she gave all of us her motherly greeting: “Praised be Jesus, my dear children!” Then Our Lady continued to pray with her arms extended over all of us here. In a special way she prayed over those of you who are sick present here. After that Our Lady said, “My dear children! Also today I call you to abandon that that is of the passing world that is more and more distancing you from my Son. Decide for my Son. Accept His words and live them. Thank you, dear children, for also today having responded to my call!” After that Our Lady blessed all of us with her motherly blessing and she blessed everything that you have brought to be blessed. Then I recommended all of you, your needs, your intentions, your families in a special way all those of you who are sick here, your intentions and your desires, that the Mother may pray for all of you and intercede before her Son for you. After that Our Lady continued for a while to pray over us and she left in that prayer, in a luminous sign of the cross with the greeting, “Go in peace my dear children!” In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

The Annunciation of the Lord!

  (c)Mateo Ivankovic 2018 April 9, 2018 The Annunciation of the Lord Dear Family of Mary! Today we celebrate the great Feast, the Annunciation of the Lord! This feast was transferred to today, because March 25 this year was Palm Sunday. So we had to wait until Holy Week and Easter Week were over, since they are the central days of our Faith. But today, at last, we can honor Mary for her great ascent, her “yes” to God! She chose to accept the Father’s invitation to bear His Son, Jesus who was coming to save the whole of humanity! What a powerful day!!! What a central day to our whole relationship to God! This message from March 2, 2014 is a special one. Our Lady refers to the Annunciation in it. She is always so humble when she remembers her life!! See if you can find the reference: March 02, 2014 “Dear children, I am coming to you as a mother and I desire that in me, as in a mother, you may find your abode, consolation and rest. Therefore, my children, apostles of my love, pray. Pray with humble devotion, obedience and complete trust in the Heavenly Father. Trust as I have trusted when it was said to me that I will bring the blessing of the promise. May out of your hearts, from your lips, always come forth ‘May your will be done!’ Therefore, trust and pray so that I can intercede for you before the Lord, for him to give you the Heavenly Blessing and fill you with the Holy Spirit. Then he will be able to help all those who do not know the Lord – you, apostles of my love, will help them to call him ‘Father’ with complete trust. Pray for your shepherds and place your trust in their blessed hands. Thank you.” Yes, she said: “Trust as I have trusted when it was said to me that I will bring the blessing of the promise.” This is such a humble way of remembering when the Angel Gabriel came and told Mary she was full of grace, that she had found favor with God, that she would bear a Son and call Him Jesus, because He would save His people! Wow! She received a blockbuster blessing of the promise didn’t she!! But she trusted. Mary trusted. And she wants us to trust like she did and does. Here is the Scriptural account of that encounter with the Angel Gabriel that we celebrate today. Wow!!!! In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And he came to her and said, “Hail, O favored one, the Lord is with you!” But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and considered in her mind what sort of greeting this might be. And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of his kingdom there will be no end.” And Mary said to the angel, “How shall this be, since I have no husband?” And the angel said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God. And behold, your kinswoman Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son; and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren. For with God nothing will be impossible.” And Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her. (Luke 1:26-38) “May out of your hearts, from your lips, always come forth ‘May your will be done!’” If we are to trust as Mary trusted, this must be our constant response to the Holy Spirit! “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” If we can live this kind of trust, we will find great joy in our lives, and even greater in Heaven. Thank you, dearest Mother, for being our Mother! In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan ©Mary TV 2018
