Today I am looking at you and calling…
Dear Family of Mary!
“Dear children! Today I am looking at you and calling: return to God because He is love and out of love has sent me to you to lead you on the way of conversion...(May 25, 2021)
Conversion is really the hallmark grace of Medjugorje. Over these 40 years, so many hearts have been awakened to the presence of God, the Truth of His love for us, and a desire for heaven. Conversion is often a quiet event, known only to the one receiving the grace, so we don’t have a ticker count. But there are many testimonies of conversion graces that have been recorded. (Fruit of Medjugorje videos on the Mary TV contain many conversion stories.)
But even now, three days ago, Our Lady is still calling all of us to conversion! How can this be? Well, we all know. The original grace of conversion may be very strong, and happen in an instant. But a life of conversion is a daily decision. Life in this poor world of ours makes it difficult to maintain our focus on the Lord. We need to pray for our daily conversion and go to confession often to root out any tendencies to sin and Godlessness. It is a daily struggle.
I have collected a few of Our Lady’s words about conversion, upon which we might reflect. She is the best spiritual guide!! I may continue this for a couple of days, since she has said so many wonderful things about conversion!!
Our Lady speaks of conversion:
Spring 1983 “Hasten your conversion. Do not await the sign, which has been announced, for those who do not believe. It will be too late. You who believe, be converted and deepen your faith.”
February 13, 1986 “Dear children! This Lent is a special incentive for you to change. Start from this moment. Turn off the television and renounce various things that are of no value. Dear children, I am calling you individually to conversion. This season is for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
February 25, 1987 “Dear children! Today I want to wrap you all in my mantle and lead you all along the way of conversion. Dear children, I beseech you, surrender to the Lord your entire past, all the evil that has accumulated in your hearts. I want each one of you to be happy, but in sin nobody can be happy. Therefore, dear children, pray, and in prayer you shall realize a new way of joy. Joy will manifest in your hearts and thus you shall be joyful witnesses of that which I and My Son want from each one of you. I am blessing you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
June 24, 1987 “Dear children! I want to lead you on the road to conversion. I desire that you convert the world and that your life be a conversion for others. Do not fall into infidelity. Let each one of you be completely submitted to my will and to the will of God. Beginning this day, I give you special graces, and in particular the gift of conversion. Let each one of you take home my blessing, and motivate the others to a real conversion.”
January 25, 1988 “Dear children! Today again I am calling you to complete conversion, which is difficult for those who have not chosen God. God can give you everything that you seek from Him. But you seek God only when sicknesses, problems and difficulties come to you and you think that God is far from you and is not listening and does not hear your prayers. No, dear children, that is not the truth. When you are far from God, you cannot receive graces because you do not seek them with a firm faith. Day by day, I am praying for you, and I want to draw you ever more near to God, but I cannot if you don’t want it. Therefore, dear children put your life in God’s hands. I bless you all. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
Mother lead us on the way of Conversion!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
