Dear Family of Mary!
It is very evident that in Medjugorje, the Eucharistic Presence of Jesus is the center of life. Through her guidance and direction, the visionaries and the Parish have together constructed a prayer life that revolves around the Eucharist! For such a small village, and such a small parish as St. James, there are an incredible number of Holy Masses offered each day. Holy Mass is central to everyone’s day. And Adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is available all afternoon in the Adoration Chapel! Jesus is adored, loved, prayed to, and received almost constantly in Medjugorje!
Our Lady wants it that way! Here are two full messages, and several quotes from other messages in which Our Lady calls us to a living relationship with her Eucharistic Son. She wants us to be near Him in the Eucharist as much as possible, because miracles happen through His Presence. Miracles happen!
Our Lady has said:
March 15, 1984 “Tonight also, dear children, I am grateful to you in a special way for being here. Unceasingly adore the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. I am always present when the faithful are adoring. Special graces are then being received.”
March 25, 2008 “Dear children! I call you to work on your personal conversion. You are still far from meeting with God in your heart. Therefore, spend all the more time in prayer and Adoration of Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar, for Him to change you and to put into your hearts a living faith and a desire for eternal life. Everything is passing, little children, only God is not passing. I am with you and I encourage you with love. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
I am calling you for the Eucharist to be the life of your soul. August 2, 2014
I am calling you, my apostles, to live the Eucharist with joy, because in the Eucharist my Son gives Himself to you anew and with His example shows the love and sacrifice towards the neighbor. August 2, 2014
The Church needs apostles who by living the Eucharist with the heart do great works; it needs you, my apostles of love. December 2, 2015
Do not forget that in the Eucharist, which is the heart of faith, my Son is always with you. May 2, 2016
My children, do not forget that the Eucharist is the heart of faith. This is my Son who feeds you with His Body and strengthens you with His Blood. This is a miracle of love: my Son who always comes anew, alive, to bring life back to souls. May 2, 2018
Dear children, great is the love of my Son. If you were to come to know the greatness of His love, you would never cease to adore and thank Him. He is always alive with you in the Eucharist, because the Eucharist is His Heart. August 2, 2019
If receiving my Son in the Eucharist is the center of your life then do not be afraid, you can do everything. June 2, 2012
Our Lady knows that we will not understand Jesus’ presence in the Eucharist by thinking about it. It is a mystery we cannot grasp through our intellect. We can only approach the Lord in His Eucharistic Presence with faith, and just be with Him. To stay, to wait, to gaze, to wonder, to praise, to thank, to pour out your soul, and to finally grow silent, is the path to experiencing Jesus in the Eucharist. And if we persevere in that process, we will be changed, which is the greatest sign that Jesus is present! He alone works miracles.
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
