Dear children!

Since 1981, in a small village in Bosnia-Hercegovina named Medjugorje, the Blessed Virgin Mary has been appearing and giving messages to the world. She tells us that God has sent Her to our world, and these years She is spending with us are a time of Grace granted by God. In Her own words She tells us, “I have come to tell the world that God exists. He is the fullness of life, and to enjoy this fullness and peace, you must return to God”.

Our Lady’s mission is one of peace. She has come to earth to reeducate us and to help us convert and recenter our lives back to God. Our Lady’s role has always been one of guiding people to Her Son, Jesus.

What an amazing opportunity we have before us!

new friends

For many years I have been following a practice introduced to me by a very dear friend, who is the editor of a Newsletter I subscribe to.

The Spirit of Medjugorje.

Medjugorje, located in Bosnia-Herzecgnovia, is a very special place – and for those of us who have had the good fortune to travel there can attest – there are many graces delivered when one visits with an open heart to the Lord and Jesus’ mother, Mary.

Each year the editor of The Spirit of Medjugorje, June, randomly chooses the name of a saint to be the “holy protector” for the Newsletter for the year.

St. Faustina’s (my gal-pal) community used to do this every year on New Year’s Day (Saint Faustina’s Diary, #360). This can be a fun and educational thing to do with your family and friends. Almost always, there is a connection between the saint and the person or group who randomly picked it.

Although any list of saints can be used, there is one my friend recommends on the website, www.mary’s.tv. Simply download the pdf with the names of the same Saints created by Saint Faustina’s community, tear/cut them into individual slips of paper, place in a bag/box/bowl & pick one from the large selection randomly!

that’s all i have to say about that

“Momma always had a way of explaining things so I could understand them.”

Forrest Gump

“America, it is said, is suffering from intolerance – it is not.

It is suffering from tolerance.

Tolerance of right and wrong, truth and error, virtue and evil, Christ and chaos.

Our country is not nearly so overrun with the bigoted

as it is overrun with the broadminded.

The refusal to take sides on great moral issues is itself a decision.

It is a silent acquiescence to evil.

The Tragedy of our time is that those who still believe in honesty lack fire and conviction, while those who believe in dishonesty are full of passionate conviction.”

~Venerable Fulton J. Sheen
