By Stefania Caterina and Fr. Tomislav Vlašić
Father Tomislav: Dearest brothers and sisters, today we will speak about the manifestation of the Mother and Queen of the universe, our Mother Mary Most Holy. Why are we speaking about this subject? We have entered the liturgical year that marks the centenary of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima in which She announced the Triumph of her Heart. Our Lady said through Stefania Caterina: “With the beginning of Medjugorje the triumph of My Heart began.” The apparitions of Our Lady in Medjugorje are still continuing.
This gives us a cue to connect this subject with the subjects we have dealt with in the past months: the Antichrist, the recapitulation in Christ of the whole universe, the manifestation of the Glorious Christ. Let us look closer at how the manifestation of the Mother and Queen of the universe is linked to the manifestation of the glorious Christ.
On 25 May 2013 Our Lady said through Stefania:
“The recapitulation in Christ will occur through Me as I am the Mother of humanity. So please, dear children, do not put obstacles in front of God! Do not refuse out of fear or convenience what God wants to reveal to you. You have nothing to fear of the newness of God because it will always open you up to hope.”
To welcome Mary’s motherhood in our life means to welcome also the royalty that passes through her, through her Heart that leads us to Christ Lord.
To look deeper into this subject today we will read a message that Our Lady gave on 8 December 2011 to prepare us for the decisive year 2012. From 2012 up to now those who have followed this path have seen fast developing events and how they have been unravelling in front of our eyes. Thus, let us listen:
“My children, it is with joy that today I desire to bless you. I bring you all the love, the tenderness, the blessing of God Almighty who wanted, by a very special privilege, that I should be Immaculate in order to be able to be daughter, bride and mother of the eternal God.
I bless you so that you might have the strength, the courage and the tenderness to deal with all the events that await you. Do not be afraid! I am not announcing catastrophes or terrible events to you, but great things.
I repeat to you what I said about myself: the Almighty will do great things for you, if you are united to Him through my Heart, and if you are able to welcome His power and His light.”
Let us try to understand the words of Our Lady. Our Lady blesses us and communicates us her love and the omnipotence of God, and She says about herself that by a privilege of God She is omnipotent, by a special privilege: “That I should be Immaculate in order to be able to be daughter, bride and mother of the eternal God,” … to be daughter, bride and mother of the eternal God. Which man would not wish to reach the peak of being a child of God? I mean of the believers, the men of good will. Who does not wish deep inside to be spouse? The fullness of espousal is in God, the spiritual life. Who does not wish to be father or mother? Her blessing communicates us this grace, this possibility, and wants to imprint it in us: “I bless you so that you might have the strength, the courage and the tenderness to deal with all the events that await you.” The strength, the courage and the tenderness to deal with all events; here tenderness contains the tenderness of the love of God with which all challenges can be faced. She announces great times that are great for us and in us. “The Almighty will do great things for you, if you are united to Him through my Heart, and if you are able to welcome His power and His light,” … united to His Heart to be able to welcome His love. It is not enough to say “with good will”, we have to go further. Let us listen to the following words.
“God is the light that enlightens every human being. If you immerse yourself in His light, if you allow His light to penetrate you, then you too will become light for others.
You are like mirrors that reflect the light of God; but if the mirror is dirty or foggy it will not be able to reflect the light.
Therefore, I invite you to integrity and to being immaculate. You can obtain them through me, because I am leading you to Jesus who is the pure victim, the One who elevates the most pure sacrifice to God. Thus, through me you become united with Jesus and you become able to welcome the light in fullness.
My children, if you are not immaculate, if you are not upright, you cannot fully receive the light and the truth of God. In fact, you receive light in proportion to how much you are pure within, because the light of God cannot illuminate what is dirty; if it does so, it is just to let you see what you have to remove, because darkness cannot absorb the light, on the contrary, it rejects it. Therefore, do not permit darkness to live in you.”
The important point is that God illuminates each man; He illuminates even hell but not from inside because hell rejects the light; egoism, wickedness reject the light and refuse to see or hear it. Thus, through these words we are called to go forward in order to become able to welcome the light completely, and Our Lady underlines the need for immaculateness and integrity and our response which pass through Her Heart, but why? Because She is Immaculate and She takes us to the pure Victim, Jesus Christ, who opens the doors to Heaven, who opens the doors of our heart. If we participate in the offering of Christ, we enable ourselves to welcome the light that illuminates us inside. Then Our Lady continues by saying that the persons who are not immaculate, that is, upright, and who are not united through Her Immaculate Heart leave the light outside as they do not allow the light to penetrate inside; thus, they cannot receive the whole light and the light cannot transform them. Then there is another point Our Lady indicates:
”I invite you to renew your thoughts, your being, your way of acting, your speech. I desire that you might immerge your whole being in me so that it might be completely renovated. Then, from your purity will be born pure actions: whatever you do, through your thoughts, your words and your works, it will be a true thanksgiving for the glory of God.
When the Archangel Gabriel presented himself to me, he was blazing with the light of God and I found myself in front of that light. I could have rejected it because, although immaculate, I was free; nobody is forced to do anything, not even to being immaculate. I welcomed the gift of God and in that way, when the light of God manifested itself before me, the welcomed gift became alive and active. Having found myself before the light, I freely decided to accept it, and this light operated everything within me. It was that light that transformed my life.
Then, my children, with courage, love and determination, follow the road that you have undertaken. You will not lack anything; I promise you to be always beside you. As Mother and Queen I will open the road before you and I will accompany you on this journey.
I desire for all my children to be immaculate, upright, simple and joyful. Please, make sure that your life is simple: do not look for great things, but seek God Who is the greatest thing. Everything else will happen according to God’s plans, in the right way and at the right moment. Have confidence, like I had, in Him who knows to provide for everything with gentleness and wisdom, at the right time.
I am with you and I bless your life. Through you I bless all my people, all the nuclei, all that the Lord wants to accomplish in this time, and that I, as a Mother, conceive within myself, because I conceive every child of God as well as His holy people.
I bless you with my maternal blessing in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
Our Lady comes close to us to enable us to be transformed by the light of God; she means the transformation of our mind. What Our Lady wants to say is not an idea, a human logic, a methodology, but a vital impulse that comes from God and goes through her generating maternal Heart. Thus if we immerse ourselves in her Heart and allow her immaculateness to surround us, we can be transformed; however, She underlines that She was free to decide; so She is the only model after Jesus Christ for the Church and for the children of God. Even in the moment of her conception She was free as God never forces anyone. She went through all human events, even before the coming of Christ, then together with Him and after Him. She went through all events like no other creature than The Immaculate, giving her response in each situation, until Her assumption into Heaven to be our Mother and Queen.
It is very important for us to understand that we have to welcome the light freely. Welcoming the light of God is an action that is like a gift, like a treasure, and She says: ” I welcomed the gift of God and in that way, when the light of God manifested itself before me, the welcomed gift became alive and active. Having found myself before the light, I freely decided to accept it, and this light operated everything within me. It was that light that transformed my life.” Then we really enter the heart, in what the Bible indicates as the space of the spirit; therefore, Our Lady calls us to make a choice: “Do not look for great things, but seek God Who is the greatest thing. Everything else will happen according to God’s plans, in the right way and in the right moment. Have confidence, like I had, in Him who knows to provide for everything with gentleness and wisdom, at the right time.”
Thus, in the context in which the children of God need to get ready to face Lucifer, the Antichrist, the False Prophet, there is no other star to illuminate humanity. The Mother should be visible in our heart, in our life and through us, as She said, her motherhood, or fatherhood in God for the man, should express itself in form of brotherhood and in the spousal relationship as well as the brotherly, maternal, paternal relationships; this is the part of the cosmic Pentecost in which we have to enter.
We have said that these people offer themselves for the Queen of Peace at Medjugorje; they offer themselves for the realisation of the plan of Mary, who appeared in Medjugorje according to the will of God. Today we can say that Mary’s plan too has gone forward and will go forward fast. We have experienced all this. The people who have followed these programmes have experienced all this and bear witness to it. I am grateful to God for having done this path and I feel full of the grace of this path.
Stefania Caterina: We wonder how we can be close to the Heart of Mary in this time, and I think that we should do what the apostle John did, that is, he took Her into his home; hence, we may take Her into our inner home, into our soul as Mother, friend and also as teacher of life who leads as to Jesus and paves us the way, which is as She says: a luminous way.
Mary was free to decide as we are free; however, She gave Her freedom to God, and this is extremely important for us as She helps us put our freedom in the hands of God, because if our freedom is not in God, it will lead us away from God, it will take us towards disorder. But, when we offer our freedom to God through Mary, it will take us towards harmony, towards the manifestation of the glory of the children of God who live in freedom and not as slaves.
There is one more important thing I have experienced personally, which was to understand that Mary knows the plans of God; She knows them better than anyone else. The Archangels have told us many times: “We do not know all the plans of God. We know the ones God reveals to us, but Our Lady knows them.” Our Lady lives immersed in the Holy Trinity, in the mind of God, and She knows the plans of God for each one of us and for the whole of humanity. Thus, we should not pray for things that make us happy, that we need or would be convenient to us – we also pray to God according to our needs – but, we should ask Mary to pray for the realisation of God’s plans for us, which She knows, and that She may ask for us what we are unable to ask because we are limited creatures. We cannot know what God has foreseen for us but She knows it. And as a Mother who loves us, She wishes only our best. I think that we need to discover this ability of Mary, who is omnipotent by grace as has been told us many times: God is omnipotent in Himself; He is the Almighty, but Mary is omnipotent by grace, and She reveals Her omnipotence through Her intercession for us which is always a powerful one.
Father Tomislav: I would like to touch one more aspect: it is a trap, especially for the man of the Earth, to live the life God has given but living it without freedom. Our Lady has told us, and we have written about it in “Beyond the Great Barrier”, that some persons receive a gift from God, but they want to possess it; in this case the gift can only touch those persons but cannot transform them because they want to keep the gift like something they own. This is not possible in God. Therefore, offering our life to God through the Immaculate Heart of Mary makes us hand everything over to God, in the way we give an artist material to create a piece of art, and God will realise that work perfectly for us. This is fundamental for all of you listeners; for all those who want to prepare themselves in these times for the events that we will see so that we understand them inwardly and at the same time walk our path always feeling the presence of Mary who accompanies us continuously.
I bless you in this time of preparation for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception; it shall not be just a light and superficial Feast, but you shall welcome Our Lady within the plan of God for your life; you shall be able to lift yourselves above your daily prayers, pleas and intentions towards the intentions of the Mother most pure who will elevate your life so that the Lord may give you all that you need, but not according to the plans of your egoism, your egocentrism, fears and worries, but according to the plan of the wise and almighty love of God; in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
