The Journey Begins
My travel day to Medjugorje has arrived and I’m very excited to see what our Blessed Mother has in store for me. Before going to the airport, I wanted to read the apparition the visionary Mirjana received from Our Lady Queen of Peace. Mother Mary spoke to Mirjana on October 2nd, and speaks to her on the 2nd of each month. We are staying at Mirjana’s pension and I will have the privilege of meeting her, so I was very interested in what she heard.
In the video of this month’s apparition, Mirjana is surrounded by hundreds of faithful people singing songs and then I heard, “Silence” in Spanish. Mirjana is looking up, holding a rosary, listening quietly and intently. I can hear cameras clicking and dogs barking in the background. Everyone is either watching her or also looking up. A priest is standing next to her. After her apparition, with tears in her eyes, she was held by several people. The apparition must had been very powerful for her to look like she is going to faint. The priest starts to pray and while she is escorted away, interpreters share her apparition. After listening to her apparition, I felt a bigger sense of joy and peace. I know this journey will be a life changing experience.
“Dear children, the Holy Spirit, according to the Heavenly Father, made me the mother — the mother of Jesus — and by this alone, also your mother. That is why I am coming to hear you, that I may open my motherly arms to you; to give you my heart and to call you to remain with me, because from the top of the Cross my Son entrusted you to me. Unfortunately, many of my children have not come to know the love of my Son; many of them do not want to come to know Him. Oh, my children, how much bad is done by those who must see or interpret in order to come to believe. That is why, you, my children, my apostles, in the silence of your heart, listen to the voice of my Son, so that your heart may be His home, that it may not be dark and sad, but that it may be illuminated with the light of my Son. Seek hope with faith, because faith is the life of the soul. Anew I am calling you: pray, pray to live faith in humility, in spiritual peace, and illuminated by the light. My children, do not strive to comprehend everything immediately, because I also did not comprehend everything immediately; but I loved, and I believed in the divine words which my Son spoke — He who was the first light and the beginning of redemption. Apostles of my love — you who pray, sacrifice yourselves, love and do not judge — you go and spread the truth, the words of my Son, the Gospel, because you are the living Gospel; you are the rays of the light of my Son. My Son and I will be with you to encourage you and to test you. My children, always implore the blessing of those, and only of those whose hands have been blessed by my Son, of your shepherds. Thank you.”
