    Simply beautiful,but isn’t every thing beautiful that comes from the most beautiful place on earth can’t wait for the Era of Peace

  2. It appears that many others are in the same position that I am-getting older and physically limited. The real problem is getting others to believe and to act.Thy will be done.

  4. What you say is absolutely true and it is scary because we are so used to convenience. We are in the midst of changes that will affect our way of life. I would love to live off the land as you propose, but as a singleperson who is getting older and with limitations physically or the know how,, how is that possible? I live simply, I do not believe in having more than what I need. I try to instill my philosophy into my children, but they are of the world, so all I can do is pray for them. I have to believe that God is in control and will take care of everything because if I dwell on it, it will cause me great anxiety and that is not a good thing for me or anyone else. I place all my trust in God and pray for those who are lost and aren’t aware of what is coming. Please pray for an enlightenment for all so that we can share in the Body of Christ to assist and serve one another and love our neighbors as ourselves as Jesus taught us.

  5. Wow! I haven’t even finished listening! But, I have been praying, “please prepare a place for us and lead us to it!” We are check to check! Even though I have been praying for a Pentecost to bring the spiritual changes we need, I am also praying for the abode of God ! Here,…now…but, to also to prepare a place for us and those like us that do not have the means to prepare now. I am praying for miracles! But, first the spiritual ones! I don’t know what, or how God’s plan for us will play out. But, I am trying to hold on to hope, and as She said, ” be happy that you belong to me!” I pray, even as I am fighting with my teens over technology in the home, that She wraps us under Her mantle and not one of us is lost! Mary please lead us! Holy Spirit change us! Heavenly Father have mercy on us! Jesus save us!

  6. Thank you with all my heart Our Lady for bringing me back to God. You have always answered my prayers through the Rosary, and You have always been with me when I needed You most. You took me on a journey of discovery to learn the rosary, that most beautiful prayer, even though I was not brought up catholic. Thank you for the Caritas website that enables people like me to receive the most beautiful blessing from reading your messages and guide us toward God. with all the love from my heart : thank you for this beautiful gift.

  7. Our BVM knows everyone. She knows her Church is the true church. The message in her sons church can find its way to the most isolated person at a considerable speed . In the Catholic church science and spiritual issues are intertwined and clearly established unlike our sister sects. Therefore, for our mother there is no point to uproot the church structure out, only that the church only needs “servicing” as in case of a car. After that the car will serve the purpose of her son for us (human race).This is unifying such that our break away brothers are of course going to be reunited. Better still our muselem brothers may have to reconsider their position. The persecution of Christians, turmoil raging now in the middle east could be explained on this basis. The fear of being proved wrong in what they believe in is presently high! I believe they are fighting a loosing war this time round. Listen the teaching is LOVE, PEACE, NEIGHBOUR, ETERNAL LIFE, ETC. HOW DO YOU FIGHT THIS?

  8. O my Blessed Mother I love you will all my heart. I thank you for the many, many times you have answered my prayers. Help me to continue with daily rosaries and to somehow enlighten those around me to share the unending love I have for you and our lord Jesus, the Holy Spirit and Almighty God our father.

  9. Now at 51 my life has some extraordinary events but also regrets. There were many missed opportunities. I have hit a dry spell. I have read St. John of the Cross many times in the last 2 years to try and understand. I was with the first and second group to stay with Ivan in Medjugorje back in 98. I was on fire with the faith for many years but have had difficulty in the last almost 5 years.One thought that will get me going is that ‘what if tomorrow, Mary appears for the last time to the Medjugore visionaries?’. One day there will be a tomorrow and the messages will stop and after the events will begin. Trying to put myself in that ‘tomorrow’ day and ask myself what would I do if I knew the messages would stop ‘tomorrow?’ would I tell family and friends that they need to pay attention because this will be the end of this time of Grace. Would I pray to prepare for the time of the apparition. Would I go back in my memory to remember what it was like to try and be there again

  10. Dearest Mother: the fullness of love and grace, I surrender myself fully before you. Please hold me in your Immaculate Heart, where the safest place to stay until you took and place me in Heaven. Being a little child, I believe the messages that I heard from you mom and want to live and obey those commands in the love of God. We are so blessed so that we are closer to your love and care. Mumma: guide us to live as a white flower of Lilly of Purity.

  11. I came twice with my wife to Medjugorje. It is a holy place were our Lady and Her Son are felt very near. Our Lady is a very loving mother and who like all loving mothers warns us and pleads with us for conversion. While so many have left their faith, so many others are finding Mary who reaches out to us, knowing our frailties, our concerns, our sometimes strange dispositions. But prayer and penance are two of the ingredients with which we move ever closer to Jesus. Queen of Heaven & Earth, most Blessed, Virgin Mary Mother of God we thanks you for coming to us through Medjugorje. Jesus, thank you for giving us your Mother from the Cross. Mary the “masterpiece” of Our Eternal Father. What a great gift to mankind. Dear Mary help all young people to reach out to Jesus; help all families that they may follow the lives of The Sacred Family; help the Catholic and Apostolic church; help the poor, the disabled and the sick. Jesus and Mary I trust in you.

  12. Our Lady, appears on the picture i had taken on my TV, during Our Pope Francis 1. Inauguration celebrations Mass, In Rome.Our Lady said, i have chosen you a holy humble Pope in this trouble time. Pray for him.Mama Mary, please, help me, i had been praying and shared your messages, and that people will accept your messages in Medjugorje.Rose Funtanares-RovenskyABBOTTSFORD, BC., CANADA

    Our Lady told one of the visionaries that the 5 Volume work, Poem of the Man-God by visionary, Maria Valtorta, was the most accurate account of the life of the Holy Family and the Life of Jesus. It is the New Testament with no deviation, and in captivating human details. I am 75 years old, I began reading these books 32 yrs. ago ,and will continue until God calls me home. It is a MUST read for everyone. My comforting Faith is the result. Before reading these, I prayed that God would strengthen my weak, limp faith. All my questions have been answered about life, death, and the mercy of God. I now truly feel that I know the Human Person of Jesus, the Beautiful Angel Mother of God, the wonderful apostles in all their different personalities and loveable traits. Praise the Lord.

  14. Thank you. Thank you for the message. Do continue to pray. Two men wanted to cheat my sister cousin. Out of pity she had lent money to them, and those men showed her the temptation of money and more earning, in one of the place in India. She was ready, but most probably going there was not good for my cousin. The day she was preparing to go early morning, she opened her rosary case where she use to keep her rosary. It was okay and well kept near her head table. But it was amazing when she opened, she found the Holy Rosary which she had bought from the cathedral, her blessed rosary red in color made with chain was detached by itself. SHE THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE THE SIGN SHE SHOULD NOT GO TO THE PLACE, AND IT MIGHT BE THE DANGER SIGN. SHE DID NOT GO. OF COURSE THEY WERE FORCING HER BUT SHE DO NOT. AFTER FEW DAYS WE CAME TO KNOW THAT THESE TWO MEN IS NOT GOOD AND THEY MIGHT GO TO JAIL NEXT 2TWO DAYS BECAUSE OF THEIR BAD WORK. MOTHER MARY SAVED HER. THANK YOU MARY MOTHER. THANK YOU ALL.

  15. Veronica Christian

    O Mother of Mercy, I am always filled with awe when I read of Your appearances and read Your messages. I yearn to understand more, and want even to go back to those times I missed. While I know that I cannot experience Your appearances first hand in Medjugorje, I know that You are present with me when I pray. Help me to remain constantly aware that You are with me through every day. Bless our home, my husband and most of all revive my son’s spirituality, that he will become actively involved in his faith. Help all three of us to experience a special closeness to You and Jesus forever. Bless our Parish (Holy Trinity Musgrave Durban) as we celebrate our diamond jubilee. Help us create a vibrant youthful participation in all spheres of parish life so we can live our faith to the full. Help also all women and children worldwide…

  16. How absolutely far I am from a sincere change in my daily life!!! I don’t ignore or reject HER messages and believe I’m not indifferent but my conversion is too s l o w…But today I’m praying with all of you.

  17. John Peter Oliver

    My dearest Blessed Holy Mother of God,My Family and I Love you and your Son and our Brother Jesus, with all our heart. We have nothing in this world, but to simply pray with you and follow every message that you give us. O holy Mother, protect us from every temptation that the evil one is bringing about. We are your children take care of our needs. My wife Maria Leony Cynthia and I at this moment surrender our only two sons Raymond Oliver and Jude Oliver to you and pray for their Priestly Vocation.
