Youth Festival 2021
Pray, witness, rejoice!!
Dear Family of Mary!
Here again is the message for September 25, 2021 from Our Lady, Queen of Peace in Medjugorje:
“Dear children! Pray, witness and rejoice with me because the Most High continues to send me to lead you on the way of holiness. Be aware, little children, that life is short, and eternity is waiting for you to give glory to God with your being, with all the saints. Little children, do not worry about earthly things, but long for Heaven. Heaven will be your goal and joy will begin to reign in your heart. I am with you and bless all of you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (September 25, 2021)
Our Lady calls to us: “Pray, witness, and rejoice with me…” These words are tambourine words as Denis would say! Our Lady is happy, of course, because “the Most High continues to send me to lead you on the way of holiness.” The Father is allowing Our Lady to stay with us, to pray with us, to witness with us and to rejoice with us! She brings us so many graces!! The grace of contemplative prayer! The grace to share with our lives the love of God. The grace to rejoice in the Spirit, filled with the joy of God’s love!
We see these graces in a special way through the testimonies of the pilgrims in Medjugorje. In each testimony on Mary TV’s webpage in the “Fruit of Medjugorje” Archive, we encounter these graces! View the hundreds of testimonies here: https://marytv.tv/fruit-of-medjugorje/
Pilgrims share the gifts they have received in prayer in Medjugorje. They witness the changes that have occurred in their lives through their encounter with Our Lady. And they rejoice over the peace, love and happiness that have been poured into their lives because of Our Lady’s presence!
Pray, witness and rejoice!!! These words describe our lives with Our Lady of Medjugorje!
Let’s pray with Our Lady her own song of joy, a song that came from her heart when she and Baby Jesus visited Elizabeth and little St. John the Baptist. There was a lot of rejoicing going on at that moment! God had allowed Mary to be with Elizabeth and their little boys were together too. So much grace was flowing, so much joy, and so much witnessing. Little John was leaping in his mother’s womb!! This is the kind of joy Our Lady brings to us as well!
Let us pray!
The Canticle of Mary
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior
for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed:
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear him
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm,
he has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
the promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children for ever.
Alleluia!!! Praise the Lord!
