Dear Family of Mary!

There are many theories being offered in these days, theories of what God is doing at this difficult time. This is the centennial of the apparitions at Fatima, in which Our Lady made several predictions that were fulfilled. Over the past one hundred years we have seen humanity fall into great darkness, as nations, institutions and families have been divided and weakened by sin and a loss of faith. It would seem that Our Lady’s desires were ignored by most of the world.

But as sad as this century has been, God has not given up on us yet. Our Lady’s coming to Medjugorje with a plan for peace has given many new hope. Our Lady has told us so much in this message:

August 25, 1991 “Dear Children! Today also I invite you to prayer, now as never before when my plan has begun to be realized. Satan is strong and wants to sweep away my plans of peace and joy and make you think that my Son is not strong in His decisions. Therefore, I call all of you, dear children, to pray and fast still more firmly. I invite you to self-renunciation for nine days so that, with your help, everything that I desire to realize through the secrets I began in Fatima, may be fulfilled. I call you, dear children, to now grasp the importance of my coming and the seriousness of the situation. I want to save all souls and present them to God. Therefore, let us pray that everything I have begun be fully realized. Thank you for having responded to my call.

Our Lady’s presence in Medjugorje with a plan for peace is part of her intervention at Fatima, the culmination of it. She wants to complete the plan of rescue she began in Fatima, and she needs us to help make it happen.

We may be distracted from Our Lady’s plan by the things that are taking place and the theories that many are offering us about these portentous days. But Our Lady has told us there is only one sign we should be paying attention to. It is Medjugorje!

April 25, 1992 “Dear children! Today also I invite you to prayer. Only by prayer and fasting can war be stopped. Therefore, my dear little children, pray and by your life give witness that you are mine and that you belong to me, because satan wishes in these turbulent days to seduce as many souls as possible. Therefore, I invite you to decide for God and He will protect you and show you what you should do and which path to take. I invite all those who have said “yes” to me to renew their consecration to my Son Jesus and to His Heart and to me so we can take you more intensely as instruments of peace in this unpeaceful world. Medjugorje is a sign to all of you and a call to pray and live the days of grace that God is giving you. Therefore, dear children, accept the call to prayer with seriousness. I am with you and your suffering is also mine. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Medjugorje is a sign to all of us, and a call to pray and live the days of grace that God is giving us. This is the time of grace, the time of fulfillment. Rather than get distracted by other theories or fearful announcements, we need to live this time of grace through prayer and renunciation. That is our job in this work of God.

As a reminder to us of this plan just before October 13, 2017, Our Lady gave us this message through Ivan on September 1:

September 1, 2017 (through Ivan)
Dear children, today I wish to invite you again to pray at this time in particular for my intentions, for the plans I wish to accomplish with my coming. Pray, dear children, and be persevering in prayer! Mother prays for all of you and intercedes for all of you with her Son. Thank you, dear children, for having responded even today to my call.”

She reminds us to pray for her intentions, for her plans, and not to quit! Our response in essential in this plan. She doesn’t tell us to look for signs in the heavens, or disasters or storms or wars as our signs. She is our sign, her presence in Medjugorje is the sign. And she is asking us to join her in her plan to bring peace to the earth, through her Heart, so filled with love.

I believe we all need to recommit ourselves to Our Lady’s peace plan, and follow her through her messages in Medjugorje at this moment in history. Everything she has done up until this day has been directed towards peace. She is not going to change course now. And we cannot change either. Persevere! Stand firm! Believe in Our Lady’s call! Pray, fast, confess, convert, witness! That is our part in this plan. Don’t get distracted by anything else, no matter how plausible. It may be a smoke screen. Trust Our Lady and stand firm.

As she said to us on July 2, 2016: “Dear children, my real, living presence among you should make you happy because this is the great love of my Son. He is sending me among you so that, with a motherly love, I may grant you safety… Trust in my Son, because He will do for you what you would not even know how to ask for…”

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
