Dear Family of Mary!
On August 25, 2020 Our Lady said to us:
“Dear children! This is a time of grace. I am with you and anew am calling you, little children: return to God and to prayer until prayer will be a joy for you.
Little children, you do not have a future or peace until your life begins with a personal conversion and a change to the good. Evil will cease and peace will begin to reign in your hearts and in the world.
Therefore, little children, pray, pray, pray. I am with you and intercede before my Son Jesus for each of you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (August 25, 2020)
Our Lady often tells us that this is a time of grace. It has always been a sort of mystery to me why this is a time of grace. But I think Frano Zubac finally solved the mystery! In his reflection at the beginning of the Jesus Rosary for August 26, 2020, he explained it this way:
Jesus Rosary 8/26/20

Hello everyone. My name is Frano. I would like to tell you one story about something that happened to me 7 or 8 years ago.
I was climbing up Apparition Hill with my group of pilgrims who came from the United States. And then we finished the climb and prayed around the statue of Our Lady. As we slowly went down the hill, I noticed my colleague guide, Slava, coming up the hill with a big group of 50 people.
They had yellow scarfs around their shoulders and wore yellow hats. I asked her, “What’s happening Slava?” She smiled and said, “Frano, can you greet my priest from the group? I would like you to meet him.” I said, “Of course I will.” And Father came from behind her and we greeted each other. I asked him, “Where are you coming from?” And he said, “We are coming from Nazareth!” And I said, “Nazareth? Are there still Christians in Nazareth?” And he said, “Yes, we are Christians and we are coming from Nazareth! The Native town of Our Lady!” And I thought to myself, they are coming here to Hercegovina, to this little unknown town. And I had always had a dream to go to the Holy Land. But people from Nazareth are coming here!!
So, I said, “Well Father, we have welcomed Our Lady and she is quite comfortable with us. We have grapes here too. Pomegranates, olives and lots of rocks and bushes as you see on the hill. And she has stayed with us here for 30 something years!” And he started to cry. The tears rolling down his face.
And he said, “I came to ask her to come to her native town.” And I said, “Oh dear!!” I asked myself what changed the situation? I always had a dream to go to the Holy Land, and now they are coming from the Holy Land to this unknown place in Hercegovina.
Then I realized that Our Lady changed it. “Full of grace”, she has been appearing here now for almost 40 years. And that grace is pouring out of her to the souls of the people who are coming here with open hearts. And they are receiving the grace from heaven, through Our Lady. Our Lady is “full of grace”. She is the Mother. And she calls us “dear children”.
How could she be our mother, I asked myself. I thought about it a long time. How can she be my mother? Because I know my mother. But she is our spiritual mother. Jesus told us that we have to have a second birth. And she is the one giving us our second birth, through her intercession. As the Mother of Christ, she is the Mother of all of us. Mother, full of grace, is giving us a second birth (as Mother of the Church), the birth through the Holy Spirit. And preparing us for heaven. Born as children of God! We are no more, children of man (of Adam). We are children of God. She is preparing us for that occasion. Amazing, amazing!! Amazing Grace!
Yesterday she said to us, “This is the time of grace.” And I asked myself, what is this? And then I remembered, of course, it is because of her presence. She is full of grace. Her presence is here, and we need to know how to use this time, to accept the grace of this time, to learn how to really live the life of conversion. The life of conversion is to belong to her and to allow her to raise us, over these 40 years, to allow her to raise us up, to prepare us for heaven. Actually, she wants to leave a part of heaven in our hearts, here. And with that heavenly joy and happiness, we join her in eternity. (Jesus Rosary with Frano Zubac on 08/26/20)
This makes so much sense! This is a time of grace because Our Mother, Mary, Full of Grace, is with us. This is the time of Mary! She brings the grace! Our Lady, Queen of Peace, is with us in Medjugorje, and so this is the time of grace! We all feel it, don’t we? In Medjugorje, there is a super-abundance of grace, poured into our souls. We can rejoice in it and spread the news. We can’t keep this good news just for ourselves.
This is a time of grace!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PS. I highly recommend “Jesus Rosary” with Frano Zubac. It is full of memories of the early days shared by Frano who has been present since the very beginning of the apparitions in Medjugorje. And the Jesus Rosary is so peaceful and meditative. Here again is the link to the archive:
