“Dear children! In this time of God’s signs, do not be afraid because I am with you. The great love of God sends me to lead you to salvation. Give me your simple hearts, purified by fasting and prayer. Only in the simplicity of your hearts is your salvation. I will be with you and lead you. Thank you.” September 2, 2007
Our Lady is with us in these days. And she is leading us. And I dare say she gives us signs to help us on the way. I want to share a small but very beautiful sign that was given to one of our shipmates in Scotland just last year! Anna shares very beautifully the impact of a sign that she and her family received while she was in Medjugorje!! Thank you Anna, for sharing this beautiful testimony with us all!
Dear Cathy, Denis and Mary TV community,
Last August I fulfilled my dream of 8 years and finally went to Medugorje with my husband, sister and 11-year-old grandson. My grandson, Cameron, was due to begin his first term at High School two days after our return. I had hoped that in Medugorje he would see and feel the message of Our Lady “That God Exists” and that that knowledge would guide and protect him throughout his High School years. I thought I, as an adult had something to teach Cameron about faith and its importance.
The temperature in Medugorje was in the mid-forties Celsius and very uncomfortable and so we decided to take Cameron to The Circles so that we could all swim and get some respite from the heat. Whilst there Cameron helped me to go to the restroom as to reach it you have to maneuver steep stairs and I can only walk with the aid of a crutch and needed assistance.
Cameron is always happy to help. The floor of the restroom was awash both inside and out, the source of which I didn’t know. A leak, dripping pool water from swimmers? I couldn’t guess and feared the worst. On the way out Cameron said “There’s a cross in that puddle Gran!” and made to pick it up. In grandmother mode I chastised him and told him of the dangers of germs. My darling grandson then showed me the beauty of being childlike in our faith as we are constantly reminded, and a lesson I still needed to learn. He reached down immediately and picked up the cross which was not a complete crucifix but the figure of Jesus from a crucifix and laid it on a shelf in the wall insisting, “Gran we can’t leave Jesus in a puddle.”
And how magnificently right he was. Our roles had reversed and Cameron taught me what it is to revere and honor our Lord absolutely. I felt that our Blessed Mother had gently nudged me and it was me who needed to learn from the School of Medugorje not Cameron.
Three nights later Cameron’s parents FaceTime us. My son, Cameron’s father, had flown to London to work on the same day that we had gone to Medugorje. My daughter-in-law was the only one at their home that week. They wanted to know if Cameron could throw any light on the appearance in their bathroom of a figure of Jesus, as you would find on a crucifix.
My son had checked his Rosary and my daughter-in-law doesn’t own one. Nor is she Catholic. Cameron had brought his Rosary with him and was not missing a figure. Both Cameron and his dad have Rosaries with engravings on the cross not figures of Jesus. They had found the figure that night and it was standing upright, not lying as you would expect if it had fallen.
I believe that this was our Blessed Lord’s thank you to a child who knew by instinct and purity of heart that even a depiction of Our Lord Jesus made from inexpensive metal is worthy of respect and reverence.
Our little figure of Jesus is beyond value and is shinier than when it first appeared. Every time I hear you reminding us of the call to be more childlike I confess I have a little giggle because in Medugorje I saw that lesson in action and it’s now burned into my soul. I hope that my witness might be of some value to others. I spoke to Cameron to seek his permission to share this with you as it was his miracle and my lesson- Matthew 21: 16-17: “From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise!”

I am so very touched by this beautiful witness. Cameron, you are amazing!! And Anna you are too!! May we all become like children in the arms of Our Lady. She will give us signs on our way and we will find ourselves in the arms of Jesus in no time!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
