Dear Apostles of Our Lady of Medjugorje:
One week after he was ordained to the priesthood, Fr. Daniel-Maria Klimek (see my July 14th update) told us why he had chosen his chalice – why it had such meaning for him: https://c.streamhoster.com/embed/media/WVsBSd/xMQ52FexsiB/SYGhu2sAjTu_1?preview=1
We should be hearing more testimonies during this year’s youth festival. More vocations to the priesthood have come from Medjugorje than from any other place in the world. Listen again, for instance, to Fr. Donald Calloway’s testimony, that he gave three months after he was ordained:
Satan was harvesting then too. He owned young Don Calloway. Note how Our Lady, at the very last minute, snatched him from the Devil’s hands.
Our Lady never loses a battle when she has her children by her side. She’s has warned about Satan’s activity before. Just before snatching Don Calloway from the Devil’s grasp she warned in her message:
“Dear children! Today, like never before, I invite you to prayer. Let your prayer be a prayer for peace. Satan is strong and desires to destroy not only human life, but also nature and the planet on which you live. Therefore, dear children, pray that through prayer you can protect yourselves with God’s blessing of peace. God has sent me among you so that I may help you. If you so wish, grasp for the rosary. Even the rosary alone can work miracles in the world and in your lives. I bless you and I remain with you for as long as it is God’s will. Thank you for not betraying my presence here and I thank you because your response is serving the good and the peace.” (January 25, 1991)
Fr. Calloway told me he attributed the grace of conversion to his mother’s rosary that she was praying in response to Our Lady’s call from Medjugorje. In her February 25, 1988 message Our Lady told us all: “Pray and let the rosary always be in your hand as a sign to Satan that you belong to me.”
Thirty-five years ago Our Lady told us how to achieve the victory against him:
“Dear children! Today I call you especially now to advance against Satan by means of prayer. Satan wants to work still more now that you know he is at work. Dear children, put on the armor for battle and with the Rosary in your hand defeat him! Thank you for having responded to my call.” (August 8, 1985)
God bless you!
