For anyone who is in Christ, there is a new creation, the old creation has gone, and now the new one is here. It is all God’s work. It was God who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the work of handing on his reconciliation. In other words, God in Christ was reconciling the world to himself, not holding men’s faults against them, and he has entrusted to us the news that they are reconciled. So we are ambassadors for Christ; it is as though God were appearing through us, and the appeal that we make in Christ’s name is to be reconciled to God. For our sake God made the sinless one into sin, so that in him we might become the goodness of God. Corinthians 5 : 17-21 (second reading for Fourth Sunday of Lent)
Peace, peace, peace. Only peace. Reconcile yourselves. Peace must take place between God and man and between men…
This message was given to the visionary Marija on the third day of the Medjugorje apparitions, June 26, 1981. A simple wooden cross marks the spot on Apparition Hill where Marija was given this message.
No other spirit but the Holy Spirit can bring a person to their knees to repent and reconcile with God. It is by God’s saving grace that we are reconciled. Grace abounds at Medjugorje.
Dear children! Today on this great day which you have given to me, I desire to bless all of you and to say: these days while I am with you are days of grace. I desire to teach you and help you to walk the way of holiness. There are many people who do not desire to understand my messages and to accept with seriousness what I am saying. But you I therefore call and ask that by your lives and by your daily living you witness my presence. If you pray, God will help you to discover the true reason for my coming. Therefore, little children, pray and read the Sacred Scriptures so that through my coming you discover the message in Sacred Scripture for you. Thank you for having responded to my call. Medjugorje message, June 25, 1991
