And as we grow in our adoration of Jesus, our hearts will become monstrances filled with Jesus! We can then plant the monstrance of our hearts, filled with Jesus, Our Lord, smack dab at the center of our interior battles, and then worship Him! Rather than be distracted by the troubles, we need to look at Jesus, and worship Him, just like Clare did. She didn’t get frantic when the enemies came into the monastery, she went into deep prayer before Jesus in the Monstrance, and Jesus spoke the words of command and protection that defeated her enemies.

“In Medjugorje Our Lady is coming in a very powerful way... It is impossible not to see here the Lord our God. Impossible!...
In all our churches throughout the world, it should be as it is here in Medjugorje!”

(Cardinal Camillo Ruini, Chairman of the Vatican Commission on Medjugorje, is the Archpriest of St. John Lateran Basilica.)
