Dear Family of Mary!

April 25, 2017 “Dear children! Love, pray and witness my presence to all those who are far away. By your witness and example, you can draw closer the hearts that are far from God and His grace. I am with you and intercede for each of you so that, with love and resoluteness, you may witness and encourage all those who are far from my Immaculate Heart. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

When we witness how Our Lady has revealed her presence to us in Medjugorje, how she has drawn us close to her, how she has shed light in our hearts so that we can be free, how she has embraced us with her love, we draw others into that same circle of love and hope. We welcome our neighbors into the peace of her Immaculate Heart, and they find relief from all their fears.

Who would not share such a gift with others?

Penny sent me this joyous email about her encounters with Our Lady through Medjugorje. She said I could share it with all of you:

Our Lady of Medjugorje has been my personal life/soul saver.  Both my pilgrimages ’97 and DEC/JAN ’98/’99 (awesome experience but OH SO cold) were amazingly paid for.  While having tea with friends who’d already been there, my friend, Phyllis, and I both said — out loud — we’d like to honor Our Lady with a pilgrimage but she’d have to get us the money and tell us where to go.

I just learned recently from Phyllis (the ’97 trip) — this is something we’d never shared with each other – that we both got the money for our pilgrimage at about the same time and in the same way! It happened that each of our cars was outside during a hail storm and even though we didn’t see any damage, we were told to take our cars to our State Farm shop.  State Farm wrote each of us a check for the exact amount of a pilgrimage.  We each put that money in the bank and waited to learn the “where” part.

That summer I had an overwhelming “knowledge” that I was to go to Medjugorje.  I laughed and said, “Okay, but you know me God, I need someone to go with.”  I came home and the phone rang.  It was Phyllis who asked me if I would go to Medjugorje with her.  Thru my laughter and tears and wonder, she was able to tell me that she had already booked the trip and we would be leaving in late September.

The photo attached is from the next trip in ’98/’99.  Everyone was seeing the miracle of the sun on Apparition Hill and I was afraid and feeling unworthy to even try.  So one of the group suggested I risk one eye.  LOL.  Yes, I did get to see it. In fact, if you look closely, you can see in my eye the sun and that my pupil isn’t even contracted.

How could I not share this with people?
Blessings, Penny

Thank you, Penny, for sharing these gems from your two pilgrimages to Medjugorje. You show us how Our Lady gently guides us with her motherly hand, one step at a time. She gave you a desire to go on pilgrimage, then she gave you a friend to go with, and the money to pay for the trip!! This is amazing!! And the miracle of the sun, even if it is only for one eye, is unforgettable!!

Thank you, dearest Mother, for being so closely involved in our lives. We are overwhelmed with gratitude and love.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
