The 42nd Anniversary of Our Lady of Medjugorje
Dear Family of Mary!
Today we celebrate 42 years of Our Lady’s presence with us in Medjugorje! It has been a very long and fruitful 42 years. She has stayed with us to protect us and bless us and teach us the ways of God for all these years. And we must acknowledge that for all of these years, the visionaries of Medjugorje have stayed faithful to her call, living her messages, and conveying them to us so faithfully the entire time!
Denis and I are so blessed this year to be staying with Marija at her beautiful Magnificat Hotel. She is so loving, so kind and helpful to all the pilgrims. And she also remains completely available to Our Lady, who visits her every evening at 6:40 pm (summer schedule)! Imagine, for 42 years Marija has built her daily schedule around the visit of Our Lady! Every day!!! This is a heroic and amazing feat! But I am sure that Marija would say that it is completely possible because of the joy and love of greeting Our Lady every day!!
But not only has Marija greeted Our Lady, she has also received the monthly message since 1987! Wow! What would we do without her service to us, relaying the messages just as Our Lady gives them.
Let’s pray in thanksgiving this anniversary for the heroic and generous gift the visionaries of Medjugorje have given to us, of staying faithful to the presence of Mary, of having set aside their own agendas in order to receive the Mother of God every day for as long as She asked them to receive Her. They have been mediators of a great grace, an incredible gift to us all!
Long ago Our Mother said to us:
June 25, 1987 “Dear children! Today I thank you and I want to invite you all to God’s peace. I want each one of you to experience in your heart that peace which God gives. I want to bless you all today. I am blessing you with God’s blessing and I beseech you, dear children, to follow and to live my way. I love you, dear children, and so not even counting the number of times, I go on calling you and I thank you for all that you are doing for my intentions. I beg you, help me to present you to God and to save you. Thank you for having responded to my call!
This is the basic call Our Lady has given us. May we continue to live this call every day, as we help her to present us to God and to save us!!
Let’s pray the consecration prayers one more time:
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
Totus Tuus (Totally Yours)

Mary my Mother,
Live in me,
Act in me,
Speak in me and through me,
Think your thoughts in my mind,
Love through my heart,
Give me your dispositions and feelings,
Teach, lead me and guide me to Jesus,
Correct, enlighten and expand my thoughts and behavior,
Possess my soul,
Take over my entire personality and life,
replace it with Yourself,
Incline me to constant adoration,
Pray in me and through me,
Let me live in you
and keep me in this union always.
I will send out the message as soon as possible!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
