Dear Family of Mary!
After Marija received the monthly message on April 25, she had a brief conversation with Fr. Livio! Our shipmate, Marina, has translated it for us, and I share it with you now.
A conversation between Marija and Fr. Livio:
Dear friends, we have now, live, Marija from Medjugorje reporting the message today the 25 April 2023.
Hello Father Livio!
I greet all listeners of Radio Maria. Today, like every 25th of the month, Our Lady gave us the following message:
“Dear children! I am calling all of you to be carriers of the peace and joy of the risen Jesus for all those who are far from prayer; that the love of Jesus, through your lives, may transform them to a new life of conversion and holiness. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
Fr. Livio: Marija, I would like you to make a brief consideration of this beautiful message.
Marija: It is a message of hope, of testimony, thank Heaven! It is a positive message, because Our Lady always from the beginning repeats to us that we are bearers of peace and joy of the Risen Jesus. She is calling us to be her extended hands to all who are far away.
Therefore, She says: “Pray so the love of Jesus may transform you to a new life of conversion and holiness.”
And I believe that we are all called to holiness. And we thank Heaven for this because in these days we are approaching the month of May dedicated in special way to Our Lady and through many pilgrims, especially Italians who have come to Medjugorje, pray more. And we feel Her presence even in a greater and special way. I think that each of us has a thousand opportunities to say: “Starting from this month I am converting, I will decide for holiness.”
Fr. Livio: Marija, I would like to give you one more small testimony. Last month She gave us a message, let’s say short and very intense and also very serious. Today we can say that Our Lady was happier.
Marija: Our Lady was happy, the 25th is always a day of intense prayer, celebration, joy of gratitude, of expectation. We have a friend who celebrated his twenty-fifth year of priesthood today and we are grateful to the Lord. We need to pray that He will grant us many priestly vocations! Then there was another friend, Italian, here with us these days, who had a priestly vocation in Medjugorje. He was ill, in a coma, almost died and miraculously recovered! A great joy for all of us and also a testimony that God does not abandon us.
Tonight, in a special way, Our Lady wanted to tell us that She loves us, that She walks with us, that She has not forgotten us, that She is healing us, converting us, and calling us in a thousand ways toward her Son who is the Way, the Truth and the life.
Thank you Marija for these beautiful words you said and now we conclude with the prayer: In the name of the Father….
I love the wonderful perspective Marija has on the messages. She is the person Our Lady has chosen to receive her monthly messages and share them with us! She is a special link with Our Lady!! We are so grateful for her dedication and generosity!
Let’s live this message! It is from Heaven!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
