For Immediate Release
February 26, 2020 A.D.
(Caritas of Birmingham, Alabama)
For the many years, a Friend of Medjugorje has often spoken of a burning desire of his –as well as a desire of Our Lady’s, that now, at this time, is coming to reality.
“Form and make prayer groups
through which we will pray for your healing
and the healing of this nation
to draw closer to God and to Me.”
An invitation to individuals and prayer groups…
To be part of a historic
‘novena’ of public prayer groups
with a Friend of Medjugorje and the Community of Caritas…
Praying together, on Penitentiary Mountain at Caritas of Birmingham,1 once each month beginning in February, for nine months, consecrating the upcoming 2020 election and the Soul of America to Our Lady
If you love Our Lady…
If you follow Our Lady…
If you love your Motherland…
…why would you and others not respond to this unified call before the upcoming critical presidential election? Our Lady of Medjugorje tells us that prayer is essential:
July 25, 1991
When the time is serious, Our Lady’s call in Medjugorje is always to pray more.
If you cannot physically be present at the Cross on Penitentiary Mountain each month, unite with us spiritually by praying the Patriotic Rosary in union with us in your prayer group, parish, family, etc.
In what was the most popular Medjugorje book released in the past year, Big Q, Little Q: The Calm Before the Storm, a Friend of Medjugorje wrote :
“There is a great struggle over America, and, thereby, a great struggle over the whole world. This struggle, in the spiritual realm, is manifesting in a physical struggle…”
Just after President Trump was elected, Our Lady of Medjugorje said on December 25, 2016:
Make it, through your united prayer, for it to “Be So”
Our Lady is calling on you, with your prayers, for it, peace, to be so. Our Lady said in Medjugorje:
December 31, 1985
When God uses the means of a president, it is the result of prayer, for it to “Be So.” Every Medjugorje prayer group and parish prayer group in the nation should come to pray at the Cross on Penitentiary Mountain, at least one of the nine months. If you do not belong to a prayer group, start one now, Our Lady called for it for our nation’s healing, even if it’s a prayer group by phone. Print this announcement and give it to others as a means to spread this call to all and to form prayer groups. Come to be with others who think the same as you do to pray for our nation on a spot sanctified and blessed by the presence of the Virgin Mary. Invite your entire parish to come. (The dates are listed below). Let us know if you have a Prayer Group or are planning to start one so we can notify you of any urgent events begin to unfold in Medjugorje.
We will gather, rain or shine, on a designated Saturday each month to invoke Scripture’s promise:
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
We have the promise of Scripture.
We have the promise of Our Lady.
July 3, 2012
“This nation” refers to the United States of America. On January 18, 1989, after nearly three months of daily apparitions in their home, just before Our Lady would appear at 5:40 p.m., a Friend of Medjugorje asked Marija to ask Our Lady what She wants out of this place (their home and the Field) She had been appearing. Throughout the three months of Our Lady’s visitation, a Friend of Medjugorje had been asking this question in his own prayers. Now, he asked Our Lady through Marija. Our Lady’s own words to a Friend of Medjugorje and his wife in the Bedroom of Apparitions, was to:
With this simple message, Our Lady began to show that She has plans and ‘intentions’ for this hallowed ground of Caritas and this Nation.
Join a Friend of Medjugorje, the Community of Caritas and others around the Nation and world by praying daily at Apparition Time, The Prayer for the Abode of God, asking God to give Our Lady untold powers to accomplish Her plans here.
