Voices in the wilderness…

• The words Pope Benedict XVI spoke to the crowds in Rome yesterday harmonise wonderfully with those Our Lady gives in her messages from Medjugorje. There is a commonality; simply because the source is the same – the Word of God. Should we be surprised that the Mother of the Church and Pope Benedict speak with the same “voice”, that of the Holy Spirit?

“His mission (John the Baptist) was to smooth out the roads before the Messiah, calling the people of Israel to repent of their sins and to correct every iniquity.”
Peace, peace, peace! Be reconciled! Only Peace. Make your peace with God and among yourselves. June 27, 1981

“Before God, he said, no one has a right to boast, but must bear “good fruit as evidence of conversion.”
Through your prayer you open your heart to God and He works miracles in your life. By looking at the fruits, your heart fills with joy and gratitude to God for everything He does in your life and, through you, also to others. part message, October 25, 2002

“John the Baptist’s call to conversion resounds in our communities. It is a pressing invitation to open our hearts and welcome the Son of God who comes into our midst to make the divine judgment manifest.”
Dear children! I call you also today to conversion. Open your heart to God, little children, through Holy Confession and prepare your soul so that little Jesus can be born anew in your heart. Permit Him to transform you and lead you on the way of peace and joy. Little children, decide for prayer. Especially now, in this time of grace, may your heart yearn for prayer. I am close to you and intercede before God for all of you. Thank you for having responded to my call. November 25, 2002

“The Father, writes the evangelist John, judges no one, but rather has entrusted the power to judge to the Son of Man (cf. John 5:22, 27). And it is today, in the present, that our future destiny is at stake; it is the concrete way we conduct ourselves in this life that decides our eternal fate.”
Dear children! I invite you to reflect about your future. You are creating a new world without God, only with your own strength and that is why you are unsatisfied and without joy in the heart. part message, January 25, 1997

“At the sunset of our days on earth, at the moment of death, we will be evaluated according to whether or not we resemble the Child who is about to be born in the lowly cave in Bethlehem, since he is the criterion by which God measures humanity.”
Little children, I wish that all people convert and see me and my son, Jesus, in you. I will intercede for you and help you to become the light. In helping the other, your soul will also find salvation. part message, May 25, 1996

“The heavenly Father, who in the birth of his only-begotten Son manifests his merciful love to us, calls us to follow in his footsteps, making our existence, as he did, a gift of love.”
Children, I am leading you to love, to the dear Father. I am leading you to eternal life. Eternal life is my Son. Receive him and you have received love. part message, March 18, 1995.

“And the fruits of love are the ‘good fruits of conversion’ to which John the Baptist refers, when he directs his pointed words at the Pharisees and Sadducees who were in the crowds at Christ’s baptism.”
In this time of grace, I call you to become friends of Jesus. Pray for peace in your hearts and work for your personal conversion. Little children, only in this way will you be able to become witnesses of peace and of the love of Jesus in the world. part message, February 25, 2002

“Through the Gospel, John the Baptist continues to speak down the centuries, to every generation. His clear and hard words are more than ever salutary for us men and women of today, in whom even the way to live and perceive Christmas is, unfortunately, very often affected by a materialistic mentality.”

Dear children! I am calling you to prepare yourselves for Christmas by means of penance, prayer and works of charity. Dear children, do not look toward material things, because then you will not be able to experience Christmas. Thank you for having responded to my call. December 5, 1985

The “voice” of the great prophet asks us to prepare the way of the Lord who comes in the deserts of today, external and interior deserts, thirsty for the living water that is Christ.
Dear children! Today I call you to prepare yourselves for the coming of Jesus. In a special way, prepare your hearts. part message, November 25, 1998

May the Virgin Mary guide us to a true conversion of heart, that we may make the choices necessary to make our mentalities to be in tune with the Gospel.
May your conversion and decision for holiness begin today and not tomorrow. Little children, I call you all to the way of salvation and I desire to show you the way to Heaven. That is why, little children, be mine and decide with me for holiness. Little children, accept prayer with seriousness and pray, pray, pray. part message, November 25, 1998
