When the Church bells ring in Medjugorje…
Today we anticipate a message from Our Lady through Marija Pavlovic Lunetti. As we wait, let’s review the words Marija spoke to the prayer group at Our Lady of the Angels Shrine in Italy on Saturday. Her words are comforting and give us an important piece of advice!
Marija’s Message to the Friends of the Shrine of Our Lady of Angels in Abici, Italy
Dear Friends of the Shrine of Our Lady of Angels,
I remember when for the first time I entered this small church where I could feel so much joy. And during those years, in all these years, we have stayed together, we stayed in touch. And I remember the time when you had an earthquake and difficulties, I was always trying to remain in touch with you and to help you with my prayers. I helped, I was there to listen to your intentions to Gospa, to Our Lady.
And even now we have felt the need to help the group, the prayer group, that was born; especially now, when we have this lockdown, when this virus is limiting us. We can’t go out, and we try to find the way to get together, to pray together. For me, this moment is so beautiful and so special. We are united in prayer. Although we are far from each other, we are together in prayer.
So many people say to me, “Marija, what are you going to say in these moments?” I would say:
We have to try to work to do our best. Our Lady wants us to be her extended hands in this world. And, Our Lady asked from the prayer groups, she said so many times, “Be my witnesses. Pray.” Because so often, people are not witnesses. But we are invited to be witnesses. This is a beautiful, extraordinary opportunity for each one of us to be there to help one another.
We are not in Medjugorje now, but God allowed us to be together, to be united in prayer in this way. So, when I pray before Our Lady, as this evening I am going to pray before Our Lady, I am going to pray for all of you, for all of your intentions. And Our Lady is going to listen to us. She is going to listen to our prayers and to our needs. But she expects from us to have faith, and to believe.
I remember once when Our Lady was saying at the beginning of the apparitions, “If you do not convert, if you do not start leaving the sin behind, and if you do not set out on the journey of conversion, you will not be able to make it.”
We believe that in these 40 years, that in actually in a few months, we hope and believe that we are going to celebrate a 40th Anniversary of Our Lady’s Apparitions in Medjugorje. We feel that we are responsible, that we need to witness, to give witness, and to live in our own families, in our communities, and wherever God brings us.
I invite you to be united in the prayer because Lord hears our prayer. Very often, we say to ourselves, “God, where are you?” But God is in our midst. And with the presence of Our Lady, who appears still, every day – every day – let’s be united with her in that special moment; because that moment is a moment of grace. When the church bells of Medjugorje are ringing, remember, that that’s the moment: in your heart, together with Our Lady, say a prayer. And I am going to recommend all of you and all of your intentions.
As Our Lady says, “Heaven is with us.” And that’s why we should not be afraid. We should not think about tragedies because everything – the Life and the Death – are in the hands of God. God loves us. And that’s why He has sent Our Lady, His Mother, and our Mother, in our midst.
May God bless you all!
Thank you, Marija, for your words of encouragement. We will remember the time of apparition every day from now on, and invite Our Lady into our hearts and lives!
In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!
