This is regardless of, and in spite of life circumstance.
Pilgrims lined up in their wheelchairs during Our Lady’s second of the month apparition to Mirjana. It is very common to see crippled people, people in wheelchairs, cancer patients, people afflicted with every disability, even possessions, at the apparitions. People come for healing, hoping for physical healing, and, looking for peace and spiritual healing.
Faith allows us to be happy. When we are at peace, our soul trembles with joy. This is regardless of life circumstances. Though many situations are difficult, sometimes unbearable, with faith, we can still have joy. How? A Friend of Medjugorje explains:
“…Suffering offered and accepted perfectly invites God’s mercy, and He cannot refuse attention to your needs nor His love…”1
We know that many situations cannot be changed. But, how we see them, how we handle them can be changed when offered to God, with faith, knowing that God will be attentive to our needs, and give us His love. It is a guarantee. For whatever one may be suffering at this time, this time of Lent and renunciation brings us closer to God, more reliant on His Providence, and more open to His Love.
