(c)Mater Ivankovic 2018 April 23, 2018 St. George St. Adalbert Dear Family of Mary! “Dear children! Also today I desire to say to you that my Son has permitted me to remain this long together with you because I desire to educate you, teach you and lead you to peace. I desire to lead you to my Son. That is why, dear children, accept my messages and live my messages. Accept the Gospel, live, live the Gospel! Know, dear children, that the Mother always prays for all of you, intercedes for all of you before her Son. Thank you, dear children, for also today for having responded to my call!” (Message given through Ivan, 04/20/18) Our Lady told us in this message that Jesus has permitted her to remain this long with us because of a desire she has! Jesus has been and is listening to Our Lady and giving her permission to do as she desires! She has told us that before: December 25, 2002 “Dear children! This is a time of great graces, but also a time of great trials for all those who desire to follow the way of peace. Because of that, little children, again I call you to pray, pray, pray, not with words but with the heart. Live my messages and be converted. Be conscious of this gift that God has permitted me to be with you, especially today when in my arms I have little Jesus – the King of Peace. I desire to give you peace, and that you carry it in your hearts and give it to others until God’s peace begins to rule the world. Thank you for having responded to my call.” Our Lady desires to give us peace, to bring Jesus to us, to lead us on the way of holiness and prayer. God supports Our Lady’s desire, and is permitting her to come to us in these days to help us to respond and convert. It has indeed been a long time now! Almost 37 years!! But her desire remains the same. “Accept my messages and live my messages. Accept the Gospel, live, live the Gospel!” She wants us to become saints! She wants us to become holy and live in the peace of holiness. Way back in 1987 she told us: August 25, 1987 “Dear children! Today also I am calling you all in order that each one of you decides to live my messages. God has permitted me also in this year, which the Church has dedicated to me, to be able to speak to you and to be able to spur you on to holiness. Dear children, seek from God the graces which He is giving you through me. I am ready to intercede with God for all that you seek so that your holiness may be complete. Therefore, dear children, do not forget to seek, because God has permitted me to obtain graces for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” Our Lady wants to spur us on! To be our shepherdess, who guides and urges her flock to safety. She has continued to spur us on all these years, month after month, with messages that speak to our hearts and move us forward in conversion. She wants to do this!! God is permitting her to do it! She is free, as we are all. And in her freedom she is coming to us, choosing us in this time to be her little ones. She wants to take care of us, as a good mother, a good shepherdess does!! All I can say is this continuing choice of Our Lady to be with us through Medjugorje, through her apparitions, through her messages and through her presence in that holy place, is a massive grace! Just watch the Fruit of Medjugorje testimonies on our web page. One after another, we see the fruit of Our Lady’s desire to be with us, each one of us, in Medjugorje!! It is mind-blowing! Let’s thank Mother Mary today for desiring to come to us, teach us, educate us, and lead us to peace, to her Son. She desires to gather us in. She loves us. Thank you, Mother Mary! In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan ©Mary TV 2018 PS. Here is the link to the Fruit of Medjugorje window: https://marytv.tv/fruit-of-medjugorje/ Just start watching them!
