Accept and Live Peace

Our Lady of Medjugorje came as the Queen of Peace. What creates peace and how do we acheive peace and what about persecution and trials?

June 16, 2011 A.D.

 

Many times we experience the greatest peace in the midst of trials, sufferings, persecution, etc. The contrast is so vast that it is easily distinguishable. Struggles and conflicts are sometimes the greatest contributors to peace because they put us on our knees, and through these strong prayers from the heart, we receive the grace of peace in our hearts which eventually leads to peace in our surroundings.

The Tabernacle Sillouhette with Lightning

The Tabernacle of Our Lady’s Messages stands in a peaceful sillhouette with a storm raging in the background, Thursday June 16, 2011. A reminder that when peace with God is realized, no storm can destroy it. Our Lady of Medjugorje said on June 25, 1997:

“…prayer is the foundation of your peace. Open your heart and give time to God so that He will be your friend. When true friendship with God is realized, no storm can destroy it…”

As we are in the days of celebration of Our Lady’s 30th anniversary of Her apparitions as the Queen of Peace of Medjugorje, it would be wise for all of us to take time to reflect upon how much we have accepted and lived peace in our lives. Peace does not depend on our nation’s leaders. It depends upon Our Lady’s children, how we respond to Her messages, how we accept them in our lives. It is our response that is important.

    Thank you so much for confirming what I feel in my heart. The government is trying to slowly take away our constitutional rights. We’ve been bombarded with fear & dread!! I believe there’s a virus but I also believe that God is ultimately in charge & oversees all of humanity. Thanks so much for your words of wisdom. Catherine Cowell. ???

  3. It is astounding how God take us through when we trust in Him. Thanks to A Friend of Medjugorje for encourage us in trusting God through Our Lady. They are very strict in the Cathedral with the “mandates” but they were just easy to pass. Don´t know how but it went well to the end of the Mass(without a mask). But speaking with a Priest he said it would not happen again. Let´s see…

  4. God Bless Caritas of Birmingham! These are the toughest Catholics I know of. David and Goliath over masks and saving the USA. Big Light&joy; like a spotlight. Un saluto e complimenti da Medjugorje.

  5. It is time to be corageous and make the truth win. We have to resist. Bishops and Priests are also enforcing the use of the mask in Mexico, some do not, but most of them are. So let´s see what happens if we do not use the mask. Mary make us strong people despite of our humble condition.
