The Nativity of St. John the Baptist
Dear Family of Mary!
We have arrived at the 39th Anniversary of Our Lady’s coming in Medjugorje. What a wonder it is that Our Lady, the Queen of Peace, has been with us for these many years!! Today we will remember the first time that Our Lady was visible on Apparition Hill. She was waving at the visionaries and it was such a shock for them!! Tomorrow, June 25, the visionaries first talked with Our Lady and so this is the day that Our Lady remembers as the anniversary day of their relationship!
On June 21, 2020, Marija Pavlovic Lunetti was at the original apparition site with the guides and local people, and she shared a little bit from her heart about this anniversary and what it means for us. Here are her words:
I want all of you to hear that holiness is possible. We have examples that we have known and hugged. Those people who today are in heaven. We pray for their intercession. We have had the wonderful support, and example of St. John Paul II whose motto was “Totally Yours”.
Also in a small way, but truthfully in a big way, Fr Skavko Barbaric, whom I pray to everyday. He was my first confessor and great support that each day I could become stronger through confession and advise. He said to me: “But Marija, you are chosen! Don’t allow trials to suppress you! He always said to me, “But you are chosen!”
This means we are all chosen! Our Lady chose all of us, chose us and said, “I chose Medugorje!” We can’t say Medugorje is mine or I am Medugorje. Medugorje is Our Lady’s! If it wasn’t for Our Lady Medugorje would be nothing. We are no one and nothing.
Our Lady takes us higher and higher towards heaven! Our Lady loves us. Today she loves us, she has not abandoned us, she is with us. She repeats that she will not allow the devil to reign. So, pray! Be courageous! Be missionaries there in the place God has placed you! Encourage one another in holiness!
Just please do not forget this one thing, that God, through Our Lady, will triumph! May God bless you and may Our Lady give you all strength so that each day you will become stronger and stronger and become dear joyful missionaries of Our Lady. May God bless you and Our Lady look after you! Amen
We can take great solace in Marija’s words. God the Father will triumph through Our Lady! He will win!! She will win!! Our enemy will be defeated!! We can be joyful missionaries of Our Lady of Medjugorje!! There is such hope and joy!
Let’s pray this prayer of consecration to Our Lady (dictated to Jelena by Our Lady), in response to Marija’s hopeful words:
Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
(Given by Our Lady to Jelena Vasilj, 11/28/1983)
O Immaculate Heart of Mary, overflowing
with goodness, Show us your love for us.
May the flame of your heart, Oh Mary,
Descend upon all peoples.
We love you immensely.
Impress in our hearts a true love.
May our hearts yearn for you.
Oh Mary, sweet and humble of heart,
Remember us when we sin.
You know that all mankind are sinners.
Through your most sacred and maternal heart,
Cure us from every spiritual illness.
Make us capable of looking at the beauty of your maternal heart,
And that, thus, we may be converted
to the flame of your heart. Amen
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
