Our Lady of Medjugorje and the importance of Holy Mass with words from visionary Marija.
Sunset in Medjugorje behind the steeples of St. James Church. It is during this time of day that the evening services, which were begun through Our Lady’s direction, take place. Two mysteries of the Rosary are prayed, in which Our Lady appears during the 2nd Rosary to the visionaries of Medjugorje who still see Our Lady daily. It is followed by the Croatian Mass. In an interview in June 1989, Marija spoke about the importance of the Holy Mass:
“Mass is the highest form of prayer. This is the strongest and the deepest encounter that we can have with God. We should go to Mass not as a habit, but with love, with a real and profound desire to have an encounter with God. We should have no excuse not to go to Mass. We should never say we don’t go to Mass because we don’t like the people who attend or because we don’t like the priests who celebrate. This is no excuse, because Mass is not an encounter with the people, with the priests; it is an encounter with God Himself. To make this experience of God and this encounter with Him, we should prepare ourselves through prayers.”
In the Peace of Our Lady in this Holy Season,
