Message, 25. January 2022

“Dear children! Today I am calling you to return to personal prayer. Little children, do not forget that Satan is strong and that he wants to attract all the more souls to himself. That is why, you be vigilant in prayer and resolute in the good. I am with you and am blessing all of you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Fr. Massimo Fusarelli: I am making a pilgrimage here to invoke a living faith in Jesus Christ

In this place, for many years now, many people have seen the flame of faith rekindle as they listen to the word of God and celebrate the sacraments, especially those of Reconciliation and the Eucharist. And it is here that freedom opens up to discover the gift of prayer, especially through silence and adoration. And this is why so many have been able to taste the gift of reconciliation and peace in this place.

OUR LADY’S ANNUAL APPARITION TO JAKOV - DECEMBER 25, 2021

25.12.2021

Dear children, You are, and you are called, 'children of God'. If only your hearts would feel  that immeasurable love which God has for you, your hearts would adore and give thanks to Him at every instant of your life. Therefore, little children, today, on this day of grace, open your hearts and implore the Lord for the gift of faith; so that you could truly become worthy of the name 'children of God' who, with a pure heart, give thanks to and honor their Heavenly Father.  I am beside you and am blessing you with my motherly blessing.

Christmas message of the Provincial of the Franciscan Province of Herzegovina, Fr. Miljenko Šteko

22.12.2021

Today, the atmosphere of Christmas should be given to the new youngest generations.  Make them feel beautiful, to be happy because Christmas is coming.  Let us not allow Christmas darken us, make us tired, insensitive, have no joy in us.  Because, if we will not fight for new generations, when will we?  What do we have left then?

Both in Lourdes and Fatima the events first ceased and than Church had its decision about that. Its final decision. Sooner or later that will take place here as well, but in this case we let Mother of God with freedom of choice...I think that Medjugorje can continue well on their journey, with full trust that Church, Mother and Teacher, in this case, is going to continue to monitor their journey.
