Queen of Peace Messages:  for your discernment ...

Gospa Message to the world of January 25th, 2015 as given to Marija, visionary of Medjugorje:

“Dear children! Also today I call you: live your vocation in prayer. Now, as never before, Satan wants to suffocate man and his soul by his contagious wind of hatred and unrest. In many hearts there is no joy because there is no God or prayer. Hatred and war are growing from day to day. I am calling you, little children, begin anew, with enthusiasm, the walk of holiness and love; since I have come among you because of this. Together let us be love and forgiveness for all those who know and want to love only with a human love and not with that immeasurable love of God to which God calls you. Little children, may hope in a better tomorrow always be in your heart. Thank you for having responded to my call. ”

for others.  “Jesus stresses that he did not come into this world to give something,” the Pope said, “but to give himself, his life as nourishment for all those who have faith in Him.”

As disciples, the Holy Father said, we are obliged by our Communion with Christ “to imitate Him, making our existence a broken bread for others, just as the Master has broken the bread that is truly His flesh.”

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”

(Matt 18:20)

Through the most difficult and trying times, Mary’s “sorrowing heart was enlarged to make room for ALL men and women, whether good or bad,” and she communicates “her maternal affection to each and every person…

a source of hope and true joy.”

(Pope Francis, January 1, 2014)

Prayer for our Country

God our Father,  Giver of life,  we entrust the United States of America to Your loving care.

 

You are the rock on which this nation was founded.  You alone are the true source of our cherished rights to life,  liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

 

Reclaim this land for Your glory and dwell among Your people.

 

Send Your Spirit to touch the hearts of our nation´s leaders.  Open their minds to the great worth of human life  and the responsibilities that accompany human freedom.  Remind Your people that true happiness is rooted in seeking and doing Your will.

 

Through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, Patroness of our land,  grant us the courage to reject the "culture of death."  Lead us into a new millennium of life.  We ask this through Christ Our Lord.   

 

Amen.

. . . +JMJ . . . January 2, 2015 monthly Gospa message to Mirjana: Dear children, I am here among you as a mother who desires to help you come to know the truth. While I lived your life on earth I had knowledge of the truth, and by this alone, a piece of Heaven on earth. That is why I desire the same for you, my children. The Heavenly Father desires pure hearts filled with the knowledge of the truth. He desires for you to love all those whom you meet, because I also love my Son in all of you. This is the beginning of coming to know the truth. Many false truths are being offered to you. You will overcome them with a heart cleansed by fasting, prayer, penance and the Gospel. This is the only truth and it is the truth which my Son left you. You do not need to examine it much. What is asked of you, as I also have done, is to love and to give. My children, if you love, your heart will be a home for my Son and me, and the words of my Son will be the guiding light in your life. My children, I will make use of you, apostles of love, to help all of my children to come to know the truth. My children, I have always prayed for the Church of my Son, and so I also ask the same of you. Pray that your shepherds may come to shine forth with the love of my Son. Thank you. ... * ... The Solemnity of the Mother of God, Mary Most Holy. (January 1, 2015. Zenit news by Monsignor Follo) ... The Mother. At Christmas we celebrated the birth of the Son. Today we celebrate the Mother. You cannot separate the mother from her child ... The Church celebrates the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, to remind us that we have in Her a safe and maternal company in our journey on earth. In Her, in her love and in her obedience we find the path back to God. The Church turns to Her because Mary, the Mother of the Lord, is in Christ the Mother of all humanity because she takes part in the extension of love that God the Father wanted to give us in the Son ... Amazed by the joy, we celebrate the fact that from the tenderness of the Mother of God comes peace for all. Mary, by the power of the Holy Spirit, gave to the world the Prince of Peace, Jesus the Redeemer of mankind ... Our Peace, Christ, is in the arms of a mother, Mary, one of us. Peace, Jesus, born from a woman, is the Christmas gift par excellence put in our arms. He is the face of the Peace that shines to illuminate the faces of all of us, beggars of peace ... Let us beg the Virgin Mother for this peace and we will get it like the shepherds who “went in haste to Bethlehem and found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger. When they saw this, they made known the message that had been told them about this child. All who heard it were amazed by what had been told them by the shepherds. And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart. Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as it had been told to them"(Luke 2: 16-20 - today's Gospel). They had met the Prince of Peace, who made them wise men ... (Excerpted, www.zenit.org) ... * ... December 25th Annual Gospa message to Jakov in Medjugorje ,.. "Dear children! Today, on this day of grace, I desire for each of your hearts to become a little stable of Bethlehem in which the Savior of the world was born. I am your mother who loves you immeasurably and is concerned for each of you. Therefore, my children, abandon yourselves to the mother, so that she may place each of your hearts and lives before little Jesus; because only in this way, my children, your hearts will be witnesses of God's daily birth in you. Permit God to illuminate your lives with light and your hearts with joy, so that you may daily illuminate the way and be an example of true joy to others who live in darkness and are not open to God and His graces. Thank you for having responded to my call." ... At the last daily apparition to Jakov Colo on September 12th, 1998, Our Lady told him that henceforth he would have one apparition a year, every December 25th, on Christmas Day. This is also how it was this year. The apparition began at 2:40 pm and lasted 8 minutes. Afterwards Jakov transmitted the message. ... * ... Prayer for Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. Almighty and everlasting God, have mercy upon Thy servant(s), Francis (and Benedict), our Supreme Pontiff, and direct him, according to Thy loving-kindness, in the ways of eternal salvation; that, of Thy gift, he may desire that which is pleasing unto Thee and may accomplish it with all his might. Through Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen ... catholicquotations.blogspot.in . . .
