August 3, 2020
Dear Family of Mary!
June 25, 2002 “Dear children! Today I pray for you and with you that the Holy Spirit may help you and increase your faith, so that you may accept even more the messages that I am giving you here in this holy place. Little children, comprehend that this is a time of grace for each of you; and with me, little children, you are secure. I desire to lead you all on the way of holiness. Live my messages and put into life every word that I am giving you. May they be precious to you because they come from Heaven. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
The Youth Festival 31 is under way and it is very beautiful! Somehow many young people have managed to arrive in Medjugorje to spend their days in prayer and worship!! It is life-giving!!
Ivan Dragicevic addressed the Youth Festival 31 in a public letter, and so I would like to share it with all of you! It is very beautiful. I feel his words come straight from Our Lady’s heart:
Message from Visionary Ivan on 31st Youth Festival:
“I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now…for I shall not pass this way again.
Dear priests, dear friends in Christ and especially the youth so tender and dear to my heart.
I would like to greet you from the heart in a special way during this most extraordinary Mladifest where we are praying for and celebrating the love of Jesus and Mary.
Our Lady says “The one who prays does not need to be afraid of the future.” He does not need to be fearful. My dear youth, you do not need to be afraid of the future. All events are in the hands of God. It is the Jesus who calls you to trust in Him and pray to Him, to converse with Him, and share Him all in your heart.
We have entered into a difficult time in the Church and in the world. But let us remember that we have been born for this time in God’s wisdom. Our Lady continues to say, “Children I need you; I need you to help my plans be realized.” This call is also for you. Our Lady in a special way holds you the young people, as the apple of her eye. She loves you with a tender love. It is very difficult to describe to you the love she has for you when she gazes on each of you – one by one. It is a love beyond description, so beautiful, so tender so uplifting.
Our Lady needs you.
She first needs you to open your hearts to prayer. Pray more from the heart. In one of her messages Our Lady said, “…especially let the young people of this parish be more active in their prayers.” She also said on another occasion, “I wish specially to say to the young people to be more open to the Holy Spirit because God wishes to draw you to Himself in these days when Satan is at work.” Our Lady is constantly looking out for you, constantly guiding you, more than ever in these restless and peaceless times.
The Queen of Peace asks us all to return to God.
My dear young people, the world cannot offer the hope and peace that Christ gives. Real peace comes only from Jesus. Jesus is your peace. Pray for this peace. The peaceless times are being born in the hearts of people who do not know God. This must not be for you. Open your hearts and pray, pray, pray so that you may know God better and that everyone may feel that love and peace of God through your example. Prayer in Christ brings peace to the heart. Only when the soul finds peace in God will it be content.
Today my dear youth live this message of peace, this hope. Carry it to everyone in your families, your friends, your world.
My dear young people, frequent the sacraments: especially Confession and Eucharist. The sacraments are your restoration and strength.
My dear young people unceasingly pray the Rosary. With the Rosary you shall overcome all the adversities which Satan is trying to inflict on you and the world. Respond daily to her call to pray the Rosary. The Rosary brings you peace.
My dear young people, find time to adore Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament. Spend time in silence in order to hear more clearly the voice of the Holy Spirit in your lives.
My dear young people, live the messages of the Queen of Peace. Become an excellent student in the school of Love.
Do not be afraid, “the one who prays does not need to be afraid of the future.” Jesus says in Scripture: Do not be afraid. Jesus sends His Mother and tells her to tell the children not to be afraid.
Our Lady comes to us here – Our Lady comes in a special way to you the young people of the world and she calls you to pray for Peace. She needs you. You are the future of the Church; you are the future of the world. And a world of peace is possible. It is possible through you. Let us not wait for someone else to start – it will be a waste of time. Start today and follow Our Lady’s call and live better her messages.
God bless you. United in prayer dear young people and I present you all through these days before Mary our Mother “Queen of Peace”

These words are for all of us, but specially for the young people of today. Thank you, Ivan, for speaking words of hope to us all.
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
