According to ability…

August 27, 2010

A man on his way abroad summoned his servants and entrusted his property to them. To one he gave five talents, to another two, to a third one; each in proportion to his ability… Matthew 25 : 14-15

Dear children! You are the ones responsible for the messages. The source of grace is here, but you, dear children, are the vessels which transport the gifts. Therefore, dear children, I am calling you to do your job with responsibility. Each one shall be responsible according to his own ability. Dear children, I am calling you to give the gifts to others with love, and not to keep them for yourselves. Thank you for having responded to my call. Medjugorje message, May 8, 1986


The foolishness of the message…

August 27, 2010

For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength. 1 Corinthians 1 : 25

IN MY WEAKNESS… lyrics by John Tandy

In my weakness, Lord, be my strength,
and your grace enough for me.

May your power be at its best

when the thorn is piercing me.

Pride made angels fall,
unseated Saul,
is dipped in gall,
accuses all.
Pride just builds up walls,
is deaf to calls,
won’t play ball,
won’t cross the hall.

In my weakness, Lord, be my strength,
and your grace enough for me.

May your power be at its best

when the thorn is piercing me.

Pride is love declined,
a heart unkind,
is less inclined,
leaves friends behind.
Pride is a poisoned mind,
a path that winds,
a chain that binds,
is blind to signs.

In my weakness, Lord, be my strength,
and your grace enough for me.

May your power be at its best

when the thorn is piercing me.

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. This time is my time and that is why, little children, I invite you again to pray. When you find unity with God, you will feel hunger for the word of God and your heart, little children, will overflow with joy. You will witness God’s love wherever you are. I bless you and I repeat to you that I am with you to help you. Thank you for having responded to my call. Medjugorje message, January 25, 1997

Dear children! At this time of grace, I call you to prayer. Little children, you work much but without God’s blessing. Bless and seek the wisdom of the Holy Spirit to lead you at this time so that you may comprehend and live in the grace of this time. Convert, little children, and kneel in the silence of your hearts. Put God in the center of your being so that, in that way, you can witness in joy the beauty that God continually gives in your life. Thank you for having responded to my call.

Staying awake…

August 26, 2010

Jesus said to his disciples: “Stay awake, because you do not know the day when your master is coming. You may be quite sure of this, that if the householder had known at what time of the night the burglar would come, he would have stayed awake and would not allowed anyone to break the wall of his house. Therefore, you too must stand ready because the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” Matthew 24 : 42-44

Dear children! Also today I call you to open yourselves to prayer. Little children, you live in a time in which God gives great graces but you do not know how to make good use of them. You are concerned about everything else, but the least for the soul and spiritual life. Awaken from the tired sleep of your soul and say yes to God with all your strength. Decide for conversion and holiness. I am with you, little children, and I call you to perfection of your soul and of everything you do. Thank you for having responded to my call.

August message of Our Lady to Marija

August 25, 2010

Dear children! With great joy, also today, I desire to call you anew: pray, pray, pray. May this time be a time of personal prayer for you. During the day, find a place where you will pray joyfully in a recollected way. I love you and bless you all. Thank you for having responded to my call. Medjugorje message, August 25, 2010

When you pray, go to your private room and, when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is that secret place, and your Father who sees all that is done in secret will reward you.
Matthew 6 : 6

Recollection, as understood in respect to the spiritual life, means attention to the presence of God in the soul. It includes the withdrawal of the mind from external and earthly affairs in order to attend to God and Divine things. It is the same as interior solitude in which the soul is alone with God. Catholic Encyclopedia
