“Dear children! Today, I am calling you to prayer. May prayer be life to you. Only in this way will your heart be filled with peace and joy. God will be near you and you will feel Him in your heart as a friend. You will speak with Him as with someone whom you know and, little children, you will have a need to witness, because Jesus will be in your heart and you, united in Him. I am with you and love all of you with my motherly love. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
Pope St. John Paul II

“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!”
