An Answer to an Age-Old Riddle

Mirjana, who receives the 25th message from Our LadyOur Lady’s June 2, 2016 Message through Mirjana with special writing by a Friend of Medjugorje

June 7, 2016 A.D.

Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s June 2, 2016 Message
Given through Mirjana on the Day for Non-Believers

“Dear children, as the Mother of the Church, as your mother, I am smiling as I look at you: how you are coming to me, how you are gathering around me, how you are seeking me. My comings among you are proof of how much Heaven loves you. They indicate to you the way to eternal life, to salvation. My apostles, you who strive to have a pure heart and to have my Son in it, you are on the good way. You who are seeking my Son are seeking the good way. He left many signs of His love. He left hope. It is easy to find Him if you are ready for sacrifice and penance—if you have patience, mercy and love for your neighbors. Many of my children do not see and do not hear because they do not want to. They do not accept my words and my works, yet through me, my Son calls everyone. His Spirit illuminates all of my children in the light of the Heavenly Father, in the unity of Heaven and Earth, in mutual love—because love invokes love and makes works more important than words. Therefore, my apostles, pray for your Church, love it and do works of love. No matter how betrayed or wounded, it is here because it comes from the Heavenly Father. Pray for your shepherds so that in them you may see the greatness of the love of my Son. Thank you.”

An Answer to an Age-Old Riddle

by a Friend of Medjugorje

The following is based only on the first words of Our Lady’s message today, “…as the Mother of the Church, as your mother…” The message was not read beyond those words. Therefore, what is written below is without any knowledge of the rest of Our Lady’s words. A Friend of Medjugorje will often write on only the first words of Our Lady’s message.

In regards to Our Lady’s message today, June 2, 2016, “…as the Mother of the Church, as your mother…”, St. Paul says:

“About this we have much to say that is hard to explain, since you have become dull in understanding. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic elements of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food; for everyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is unskilled in the word of righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, for those whose faculties have been trained by practice to distinguish good from evil.” Hebrews 5:11-14

Some hearts will choke on the following written letter to you. It is solid food. Those who will not choke, but are able to swallow it, will nourish their lives.

To watch us.
To be with us.
To give us “mother.”1
Why does Our Lady do this?

The world is in a great void of “mother.” The mother in the family is redefined in the world of modernism and few understand the ancient role. Today’s mother is shaped and formed and molded by modernism. A prevailing mentality is: real motherhood is antiquated, something of another time, not relevant today. It is not the “in” thing. As a result, the whole world is falling apart. Is this statement biased against women? Unfair? Blaming women for the world’s problems? What about fatherhood? Isn’t it at fault? If motherhood is out of whack, there is no way that fatherhood can be anything but out of whack. There is one word that describes the world today. What word? Disorder.

We are a female-driven world. Not a male-driven world. We are a female driven society. Men wear earrings. Men are dominated by their wives. The whole culture is telling us that the woman’s authority is equal to the man’s. It is not so. To be in order there must be a head. Headship is ordained and cored into nature. It is not ordained because the man says so or, on the other hand, when the woman allows it to be so. It’s cored in the natural order of man’s nature. Who created nature? Nature’s God did. Anything going against the natural order, of which it is ordained, leads to disorder. What then brings it back to order? Aligning with God’s Natural order. Then where must order begin when the family is disordered? Lived motherhood.

Is it being said the man, the husband, the father is the headship? It does not depend upon the woman to decide when she accepts this and when she does not. His headship does not come from her. Likewise, it does not come from the man. Did the chicken or the egg come first? Adam came first. Eve “came out” of Adam. Eve did not follow what Adam told her, what God told him. Disorder resulted from the disordered reverse relationship of Eve toward Adam because he allowed order from God to be disordered by the woman. Disorder changed the Garden of Eden, and thereby the whole world and its future. The world fell apart because the family fell apart. This disorder had to be reversed. So what came first, the chicken or the egg? The reverse began with the Woman, the New Eve who preceded the New Adam. She, the holy Virgin Mary, was sent first to cancel Eve’s disorder. Then the Second Adam, the Christ Child, was born. Under Her order, He grew to the point where the Virgin and pure Eve was able to cancel the first Eve’s action of not doing what Adam had told her to do, to where the Virgin Eve, the Second Eve, was able to say of the Second Adam, “Do whatever He tells you to do.”

The Second Eve, the Holy Virgin, righted the order of what the first Eve did in the garden, who disregarded what Adam told her what God told him. The egg came first in the beginning. Adam was “hatched” from the ground, the soil. Millenniums later, the Second Adam came after the Second Eve. It was just the opposite of what happened with the First Adam.

“Thus it is written, ‘The first man Adam became a living soul’, the last Adam became a life-giving spirit. But it is not the spiritual which is first but the physical, and then the spiritual.” 1 Corinthians 15:45

Now, in the time of the “last” Eve and the “last” Adam, it is the chicken that came first.

Today, feminists have tainted and infected the church and women, many without even being aware of it. Self rules today and therefore, clouds much of the roles of who we were created to be, both men and women. Motherhood/wifehood is not understood today. There is an epidemic of mothers who are “child-centered.” Mary was not. She put the Father first, above Her Son. It was the Father’s wish and Her submission to Him that She put the Father first. She not only accepted this headship role as father, but embraced it, devoid of what Her heart may have felt, even on Via Dolorosa. Her Son was to be put to death as it was the Father’s remedy to bring order. No, Mary was not child-centered. She was Father-centered. Then and only then was She able to love Her Child properly. The Father was honored first and the Son did the same. Christ understood His Abba (means Daddy.) Today’s modern woman does not. As a result, many children are growing up thinking the world centers around them because they lost the central orbit around the father’s headship in the family. Mary understood who was first. She understood the principle of Who came first. Mothers must change themselves and the way they raise their daughters. The following poem expresses what daughters should be:

A Daughter’s Duty to Parents

The daughter is to honor both her father and mother. She is to seek ways to please her father and to serve him. But she should learn that next to her duty to God, comes duty to helping her mother serve the household, and help prepare for the future.

A good daughter is the steady light of her parent’s house. Her father’s memory is forever connected with that of his heart. She is his morning sunlight and his evening star.2

Too many today, including men, do not understand the proper order. We need the chicken today, to get the egg. Our Lady comes for this. In other words, what is being said is that we need the hen to bring back a centering on the father in the family, instead of the mother placing the child in the center, over and above the father. When this is grasped, when this is fulfilled, fatherhood is respected and obeyed, modeled by the mother, and everything can change. Little boys will grow up fulfilling their roles as protectors and providers of their families, representing God the Father; little girls will grow up respecting and revering their husbands, modeling this to their children, representing Our Lady. This will wash away from society a great amount of non-belief in the world, caused by children who were never introduced to the proper order of love. They do not understand the Heavenly Father, nor His Headship in the family through the father.

Is this too simplistic to fix the world’s problems? No, it is not. It is that simple. The right order of things brings order to all that which is disordered. So, which is it, the chicken or the egg? It is both. But, when we tried to put the egg first, there was no mother to hatch it. Disorder resulted. Man needs redemption through the Second Adam who could not be born without the Woman preceding Him. She who could not conceive as a Virgin, no more than a chicken could come into existence without an egg, did so by the power of the Spirit. The Virgin conceived and throughout Her whole life devoted Herself to the Triune God, but to God the Father, first.

Is this confusing to you? As an allegory, it is meant to be thought-provoking and there is room for the Holy Spirit to inspire different interpretations of what is being said. This is the reason why many of these writings are not over-explained. But one interpretation is offered here to help give form to your own thoughts.

One thing had to be present. It was stated, “So, which is it, the chicken or the egg? It is both. But, when we tried to put the egg first, there was no mother to hatch it.” What does this mean? It can have many meanings, but one meaning is that there was one common denominator that had to be present in all the circumstances: God the Father. God the Father was needed to “hatch” Adam out of the soil.

Men can’t “conceive,” but Adam did through God. Adam was the only man who gave birth. Adam, in the Garden of Eden where there was no sin, with God the Father “hatched” the Woman, Eve.

“And the rib which the Lord God had taken from the man, he made into a woman.” Genesis 2:22

Eve brought disobedience, which in turn brought disorder. Sin. Eve’s disobedience and Adam following her was a spiritual action staining their souls which resulted in something physical. As a result, they lost the Garden of Eden and it wilted and became a desert as a result of something spiritual.

The Virgin Mary could not conceive because She did not know man, but Mary, with God the Father, did conceive.

Mary was like any other woman, but the Spirit of God came into Her physically. The obedient New Eve, Mary, whose womb was the Garden of Eden where there was no sin, with God the Father, conceived and gave birth to man, the New Adam, Jesus—a physical action that resulted in something spiritual. What Mary’s womb produced humanly was touched by the Divine; the touching of what was of the Spirit united in the womb of what was human. Order returned. The opposite of what happened with the first Eve. The New Adam came to life in Mary’s womb. Eve’s disobedience wilted Eden, whereas Mary’s obedience restored Eden.

Our Lady, in Her wholeness of Holy Motherhood, shows Her obedience and submits to the Father.

“The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.”
Luke 1:35

Our Lady is completely absorbed in pleasing God the Father. Therefore, scripture states, call your husband “lord.”

“Wives should be submissive to their husbands as if to the Lord.” Ephesians 5:22

Who is our Lord? Many women may say of their husbands, “He’s not my lord.” The husband, scripturally, is the Lord of his wife. How is this defined? What is the mother’s role? In the book, Whose Opinion is Right?, it is stated:

So fathers, watch the Father and live the proverb, so that your children will be perfect as the Father is perfect. If George Herbert, who said: “One father is more than one hundred school masters,” words are true, then Herman Beeches’ words ring true when he said, “The mother’s heart is the child’s schoolroom,” and still even more true are the words of Pope Paul VI, reflecting the Scriptures of a mother’s quiet hidden role when he says, “Every mother is like Moses… she doesn’t enter the Promised Land. She prepares a world she will not see.”

Fathers are to lead to the Promised Land those whom the mothers prepare to go there! James Dobson says, “I believe successful families begin with the father.” That is based on Scripture. Then Scripture shows us it is the mother who makes the family work. So the successful family begins with the father and ends with the mother. But at the same time, “both” the beginning and the end come through the mother. [The egg/chicken first, paradox]. Families are here to be dwelling places for the raising of saints, a school where children are taught that it is through holiness that they will gain everything. Just as a baby is birthed through the Mother, now Our Lady tells us She wishes to birth us into Holiness.

March 25, 1990

“…As I bore Jesus in my womb, so also, dear children, do I wish to bear you unto holiness…”

Motherhood is a sacred calling and, when it’s done with a desire for perfection, its fruits impact the world. For those who want truth, it is God the Father leading us through Mary, the Mother, to radically change our lives and not go in the direction of society which de-emphasizes the importance of our roles but rather to elevate motherhood and respect and live up to fatherhood. Mothers must realize that through them they impact and change the whole world, for every boy and every girl comes through them. A mother cheats and deprives herself of making a strong, lasting mark on the world when she sits in an office or board room as one voice when she could be raising several who would carry her voice in board rooms, families, and a host of other places, through which holy influence will alter society and, thereby, the world. It is not just working mothers but also those roles of wife and mother that Our Lady, through the guideship3  of the Father, calls us back. Mary incredibly makes a statement about how important motherhood is by excluding all but mothers in a blessing in which She plainly singles out mothers. She even did something you rarely see Our Lady do. She told them six days beforehand what She was going to do as if to further emphasize it.

December 19, 1985

“I wish in a special way on Christmas Day to give mothers my own special motherly blessing and Jesus will bless the rest with His own blessing.”

Following Our Lady’s messages, it has become quite evident that it is through Her as a mother that motherhood will heal the world. Our Lady submits completely to the Father’s guideship, giving good example to all married couples. It is through His authority that She guides us as children of God. It is emphasized in every message, “dear children,” and sometimes Our Lady even calls us “little children.” It is a big statement that She is re-establishing the family—She, the Mother; God, the Father; we, their children—that earthly mothers, fathers and children will know how to function as a sacred structure of authority where love reigns.

In the future, as society heads toward total disaster, whose children do you want to be? Children of the world or children of Mary? Whose Son was Jesus, thereby making Him our Brother? Whose Father was God, thereby making Him also our loving Father? How sad it is for those who neither want to be in this family, nor wish their own family to reflect that sacred oneness. That oneness of our Heavenly Mother and our Heavenly Father is the outline and example on which all families should structure themselves to work. It offers the best protection from satan.

Of course, these words may raise many questions:

How do I follow and submit to someone who is not a good father or husband?
What if my husband is not a leader?
What if he’s a drunk?
What if he’s an abuser?
What if he’s not smart?
What if he does not go to church?
What if he’s a bad example?

On and on. All those questions are answered in the book, How to Change Your Husband. It clearly lays out answers to all the above questions and why, if these concerns apply to the father/husband in your family, you are still to revere him as your Lord and the center of the family. Sound impossible? It is, for the modern mentality of women. It is not so for the women who are following the Second Eve who is coming to cancel all unholy mentalities.

In prayer that you will not choke,
