Message commentary…

Dear children! Today I call you anew to conversion. Little children, you are not holy enough and you do not radiate holiness to others, therefore pray, pray, pray and work on your personal conversion, so that you may be a sign of God’s love to others. I am with you and am leading you towards eternity, for which every heart must yearn. Thank you for having responded to my call. August 25, 2008

In the 28 years that Our Lady has been speaking to us from Medjugorje we have learned to understand that she brings us nothing new outside of the Gospel message, so it is to Scripture, the Word of God, that we should look for a fuller understanding of Our Lady’s message.

The first readings of this week’s daily Mass, Monday to Saturday, are from St Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians, and all relate in some way to Our Lady’s message.

In thousands of churches around the world priests will provide homilies on these readings. So in reality, we always have a commentary on Our Lady’s message – amplified through Scripture,

During the past 28 years, it is Mary, as Queen of Prophets (prophet as in proclaiming the Word of God) and Mother of the Church, who is ensuring that her messages point us to the Word of God.

Here are passages from this week’s first readings that can be easily identified with Our Lady’s message given to us this week.

…other people tell us how we started work among you, how you broke with idolatary when you converted to God and became servants of the real, living God…
