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 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:
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.
