The official translation of Our Lady's July 25th, 2014 message
“Dear children! You are not aware of the graces that you are living at this time in which the Most High is giving you signs for you to open and convert. Return to God and to prayer, and may prayer begin to reign in your hearts, families and communities, so that the Holy Spirit may lead and inspire you to every day be more open to God’s will and to His plan for each of you. I am with you and with the saints and angels intercede for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Little thoughts along the Way of the Cross PDF Print E-mail

 

"Be imitators of God, as beloved children, and walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us." (Eph 5: 1-2)

Even if you were the only person on earth who needed redemption, Jesus would have given himself up for you.

Don't wait until Lent to pray the Way of the Cross. Come close to Jesus daily by spending a few minutes with him in a manner similar to the example below. Ask him to teach you what to think about him, what to learn from him, how you can be like him, in what way you are already following in his footsteps. Thank him.

It is true that this version does not carry with it any plenary indulgence from the Church. If you want, you can pray a version that is attached to an indulgence. How often you do that each year is up to you to count.

1st Station
Jesus, at the time when you were condemned and sentenced to death, no Gospel had been compiled and no theological treatises had been written to expound on what you were doing. You faced your sacrifice silently, with no explanation to anyone. Never once did you fight back, or say things like this: "I do so much for humanity, yet many sit around doing nothing for the benefit of others."

2nd Station
Jesus, you were insulted, beaten, and made to shoulder the cross. The spectators regarded you as a disgraced failure. No matter what people thought, you persisted on your sacred mission. Without telling your foes, you were doing the greatest good for them. You bore no bitterness or hatred. You remained constantly meek and humble of heart. You cared not for prestige.

The Joys of Mary PDF Print E-mail
Traditionally, the Church contemplates Mother Mary's sorrows. Here is an additional devotion focused on her joys. Jesus ascended into Heaven after 33 years. During her remaining years on earth, Our Lady probably looked back on their life together remembering the joyful moments, feeling the peace, the relief, the triumph, the surprise, the wonderment and gratitude that she experienced. This is a good way for us to rejoice with her as she continues to be with us in Medjugorje after 33 years. From her, we will learn to look on the bright side of events in our own lives, appreciate them, and thank God for them.

1/. She is told by the Angel Gabriel that she will conceive and bear a son: the Son of God.
2/. She is affirmed by Elizabeth who, filled with the Holy Spirit, calls her "the mother of my Lord."
3/. She can no longer contain her joy and bursts out in song, humbly admitting to Elizabeth: "My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour, for he has looked upon the lowliness of his handmaid. Behold, from now on, all generations will call me blessed. For the Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name."
4/. The Lord's angel tells Joseph in a dream to marry her: what is conceived in her is by the Holy Spirit.
5/. Joseph and Mary arrive in Bethlehem, city of ancestor David. They find a place to stay. Jesus is born.
6/. The angel of the Lord appears gloriously to shepherds to announce that the new-born baby wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a manger in Bethlehem is Christ the Lord. They come to tell Mary and Joseph.
7/. Led by a star, three wise men come with gifts from the East to adore Jesus - the infant king of the Jews.
8/. Simeon, guided by the Holy Spirit, sees Jesus at the presentation in the temple. Satisfied that Jesus is the Christ, he prophesies about him. The holy prophetess Anna thanks God and speaks of Jesus to many.
9/. The angel of the Lord alerts Joseph in a dream to get up, take the child and his mother, and depart for Egypt by night. They are to stay there until further notice. They escape slaughter by the furious Herod.
10/. When Herod died, the angel of the Lord tells Joseph in a dream to go with child and mother to Israel.

Our Lady's annual message through Jakov, December 25th, 2013 PDF Print E-mail
"Little children, today in a special way, Jesus desires to come to dwell in each of your hearts and to share with you your every joy and pain. Therefore, little children, today in a special way, peer into your hearts and ask yourselves whether the peace and joy of the birth of Jesus have truly taken hold of your hearts. Little children, do not live in darkness, aspire towards the light and towards God's salvation. Children, decide for Jesus and give Him your life and your hearts, because only in this way will the Most High be able to work in you and through you." (Jakov, 12/25/2013)

News agency hints at shrine status for Medjugorje PDF Print E-mail

January 30, 2014

(Source: crownofstars.blogspot.ca)

The Sarajevo Federal News Agency (FENA) is reporting today that a “source close to the Catholic Church” has said Medjugorje is already a shrine and an international phenomenon because it attracts hundred of thousands of pilgrims from all over the world, regardless of any official confirmation by the Holy See on the claim of apparitions.

The report adds that because such large numbers of pilgrims have travelled to Medjugorje over a long period to receive the Sacraments, the Church cannot ignore its importance.

In August 1993, two years after the episcopal bishops of Yugoslavia made their declaration on the Medjugorje phenomenon (at Zadar), the conference president Cardinal Franjo Kuharic stated:

“We bishops, after a three-year-long commission study accept Medjugorje as a holy place, AS A SHRINE. This means we have nothing against it if someone venerates the Mother of God in a manner also in agreement with the teaching and belief of the Church.”

From the Code of Canon Law:

CHAPTER III. SHRINES
