We warmly welcome you and will to continue with our story. In the last episodes we presented you two luminous Popes who had a narrow but luminous door within them through which God could work effectively to lead the Church forward – as well as each one of us if we too go through that narrow door. You understand that the narrow door is the love for God and Our Lady; both of them had consecrated themselves to Mary Most Holy. So, we cannot begin our narration without highlighting that what we have told you and what we are going to tell you today are great events; we have to recognise them in the way John Paul II did. He was part of this great event and through him the Church opened up to a great reality. For our introduction we will quote St. Paul in the letter to the Philippians, chapter 2: ”Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death — even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
We hope that you may take this kind of inner approach and that you proceed, listen and think about the events we are telling you. Good listening.
The passage is on page 294.
The apparitions of Our Lady in Medjugorje
Our Lady appeared on June 25, 1981, to six teenagers in Medjugorje, a village of Bosnia Herzegovina. That was a heavy blow for Lucifer and the Illuminati: the Mother of God appeared in the East of Europe, exactly where a new world war should have sparked; She introduced herself as the Queen of Peace; the heavenly message was extremely clear.
The Mother of God chose that village, which was almost unknown to the world, to appear one more time on Earth. She chose it for the faith in God and Her that the ethnic Croat inhabitants had always shown. Those people had stood up to the Turks and then the communists without ever stepping back, nor abandon the faith in Jesus Christ; on the contrary, they had shielded Eastern Europe against the advance of the Ottomans first and then the atheist communists. Therefore, the Croatian people are dear to God.
Our Lady appeared to warn Her children of the coming dangers, inviting them to revive their faith through conversion, fasting and prayer; so far nothing new compared to other apparitions. Actually, the apparitions in Medjugorje meant a very particular intervention of the Vergin Mary, for various aspects.
Especially, because of the duration of the apparitions. God determined that there should be no limit to the duration of these apparitions. In fact, they were meant to accompany the path of humanity towards certain events that should have occurred as soon as the Church would have revealed the existence of life in the universe, as the Pope intended to do. Therefore, the Mother came to help the Pope and the Church by preparing the people to understand the reality of the universe.
Secondly, Our Lady appeared to six young persons of different age, but through them she called the whole parish of Medjugorje. She wanted, in fact to guide the parishioners directly through Her messages to form a parochial nucleus that was compact and keen to understand the reality as it is in God. That nucleus would have given testimony of Our Lady’s revelations to the whole humanity in order to form new nuclei, living cells of the Church.
Consequently, the message of Medjugorje was not intended for humanity in general but rather for the parish which should have given a great testimony. For the first time Our Lady addressed one particular parish to assign it a mission. Also for this reason God had put no time limit to give His children the time needed to understand and give testimony. The event of Medjugorje was designed to give a far-reaching message; the initial calls to conversion and prayer constituted the necessary basis for the preparation and purification of the parishioners; only on this basis Our Lady would found Her teachings.
The third particular aspect of the apparitions consists in the fact that these are the last apparitions of Mary Most Holy on Earth. They are, in fact, linked to the decisions taken by the Church of the Earth in regard to the revelation of life in the universe: if the Church reveals what she knows, the apparitions will end because they will have fulfilled their function. In the case that she will not do it within the time limit foreseen by God, they will equally end because God will pursue other ways.
Finally, the apparitions of Medjugorje are doubly linked to those of Fatima of which they are the natural continuation and completion. After the attack on John Paul II, which was a challenge to God by hell of unheard gravity, God sped up His plans by sending Our Lady since He saw that the Church and humanity were in danger.
The pontificate of John Paul II was linked in a particular way to the apparitions of Medjugorje which began only a few years after his election to Pope. He believed from the beginning in the truth of Medjugorje and understood its importance for this time. He did not lack the light of the Holy Spirit, because when God involves several subjects in a mission, He acts on all subjects in a harmonious way. In this case, not only the visionaries and the parishioners of Medjugorje were called to understand this great supernatural event, but also the Pope who had the responsibility to lead the whole Church to allign on the positions indicated by Our Lady.
Thus, the Pope understood very well what was occurring in Medjugorje, regardless of the official recognition of the Church which, of course, God has no need of; it is the people who need it because their faith is weak. This is proven by the many great interventions of God on Earth that have never been officially recognised by the Church; however, God has never stopped acting through them. The recognition of the apparitions by the Church is therefore not necessary for the apparitions to be effective. That does not mean that the recognition has no importance; it is useful, in fact, for the people of God to be encouraged to follow the invitations of Heaven to convert. Therefore, the failure of the official Church to acknowledge such events has often been tragic for the whole Church. The people of God have not been helped to recognise the time in which they have been visited (Lk 19:44); consequently, many faithful have not paid any attention to the signs of Heaven.
In the moment when the apparitions began, everything was ready according to the plans of God. Medjugorje represented the peak of all interventions of God and Our Lady in favour of the Church and the humanity of the Earth. In the meantime it meant the last call of Our Lady for Her people of the Earth.
What Our Lady wanted to do in Medjugorje was something extraordinary: an intervention directly on the parish and the parishioners through the teachings imparted by Herself. The Mother of God would have led the persons to understand, bit by bit without forcing, the creative, redemptive and sanctifying work of God in the whole universe. At Medjugorje many pilgrims would have converged to whom the parishioners would have given their testimony helping them to enter the reality of God as well. From Medjugorje a river of graces would have sprung for the benefit of the whole Church, and then like a waterfall on the whole humanity.
That was thus God’s great plan to be realised through Mary Most Holy to which everyone was to give his contribution: visionaries, priests, parishioners, pilgrims. From Medjugorje’s tree many sprouts would have come forth: in fact, from the teachings of the Mother of God many gifts would have blossomed, ordinary and extraordinary, in the believers and in the whole world in order to renew the Church profoundly.
In exchange for all this, God requested, fidelity, the abandonment of personal interests and spiritual ambitions by everyone. Everyone had to consecrate his life to God through the Mother’s hands; yet, not in the sense that men think, that is, by embracing a religious life, but in the sense of docile abandonment to the hands of Mary Most Holy to put God in the first place and above every other good and affection.
Our Lady would have entrusted the visionaries with some secrets that would have been revealed at the right time and in an adequate manner, which She would have explained Herself to the parishioners as they were progressing in their journey. In the meantime, God would have sent the angels and the brothers of the universe faithful to Him to visit the parish of Medjugorje to support the teachings of Mary Most Holy through their action on a spiritual and physical level. Medjugorje would have become the scene of an unprecedented choral action of the Mystical Body of Christ on Earth.
Given the importance of such an event Lucifer trembled and unleashed an offensive on a large scale against Medjugorje, the Church, the Pope and the Croatian people.
Dear listeners, things are explained to you clearly and the elements are concrete. So far Medjugorje has not been spoken about and what God wanted to achieve through the apparitions of Our Lady in Medjugorje has not been transmitted: He wanted to involve the whole humanity of the Earth and unite it with the universal Church by revealing the existence of life in the universe and especially that of the faithful brothers and sisters to God who are part of the plans of God to help the Earth to elevate itself, to do a quantum leap and to get out of this confusion and corruption. I think that all you have seen, learnt and heard about Medjugorje has been useful for you; however, what is the centre of attention? To welcome Our Lady. We are all ready to accept certain phenomenon such as miracles or sensations; yet, do we recognise Her who is in the Holy Trinity, who knows God’s plans and us and wants to guide us? Only through a profound love for Our Lady, as St. John Paul II and St. John Paul I showed through the consecration Totus Tuus; in other words, if we belong totally to Our Lady and allow Her to prepare and accompany us towards Jesus Christ, only then we will be able to understand the project of God through Medjugorje. “Everyone had to consecrate his life to God through the Mother’s hands; yet, not in the sense that men think, that is, by embracing a religious life, but in the sense of docile abandonment to the hands of Mary Most Holy to put God in the first place and above any other good and affection.”
Through the parish of Medjugorje Our Lady intended to arouse a new people completely devoted to Jesus through here Immaculate Heart. In the book “Beyond the Great Barrier”, which many of you have read, Our Lady said that the triumph of Her Immaculate Heart had begun in Medjugorje. Do you want to welcome the profound teachings of Our Lady? Do you want to be united with the Archangels, angels and the faithful brothers and sisters to God who help you also from a distance? Do you want to enter the narrow but luminous door we mentioned in the beginning of this episode and which will lead you to your resurrection and elevation? I hope that you will think about this text. It is necessary that through meditation and prayer to Our Lady you prepare for the next episode which will be extremely enlightening and will help us discern between the events that affect us now and in the future.
I bless you with the light of God which the readings of the Christmas Liturgy speak of every day; may the light of God that passes through Jesus Christ enlighten your hearts and your mind; may it give you peace, joy and the desire to embrace Our Lady as She is in God; may the life that She carries, the divine life, progressively be communicated to you. What Our Lady wanted to do for the parish, today She wants to do it for a new people who wants to respond to the impulses of the Holy Spirit that Our Lady conveys. I bless you in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
