Beautiful or Parched?

April 19, 2018 A.D.

In Our Lady’s latest monthly message of March 25, 2018, through Marija, She said that we should be:

“…grateful in your heart that you are a part of God’s plan…”

This means that the plan of God, through Medjugorje, is much bigger than we are.

A lone flower in Medjugorje

A flower in Medjugorje, standing alone, with a parched flower nearby and Cross Mountain off in the distance. When a flower is among the entire bunch, it is a carpet of beauty. When we look at a lone single flower, the one flower displays all its beauty, with all intricacies and details so clear to see. In the same way, we may think we are only part of a large bunch, and though we are, each soul has its own intricacies and beauty.

Just like it is with flowers, one sometimes sees only the bunch, or only the single flower. With our souls, it is both. We are all part of God’s plan, and for that part, we should be grateful to God, that we add to the carpet of beauty across the world with our own individual traits. We need the whole, yet, the whole needs us.

Each soul adds to the beauty of the whole, yet, individually beautiful itself. When life’s trials make one forget this truth, remember that the whole of Our Lady’s children together, of which each soul is a part of, hide and makeup for each parched flower, each flower that has been bit by frost, or that has been trampled upon. This is why, in gratefulness to God, one should pray every day for those following Our Lady, who are experiencing difficulties, trials, sufferings, etc. The stronger ones hold up the weaker ones, and in doing so, make the weak strong, and the strong, even stronger. Each soul is one or the other at any given time.

Because the plan of God, through Medjugorje, is much bigger than we are, this responsibility of prayer is one that should be taken seriously, remembering that at some time in your own life, someone was praying for you.

  1. I am a person who receives much from images I see. The picture of the Queen Ann’s lace (flower) with the Cross Mountain behind gives me such peace and takes me back to my trips to Medjugorje. The last trip, my friend had broken her big toe, so I spend my walks up and down looking at the flowers waiting for her. My trials come from issue at our church and other events in my business but your words and your pictures gives me a moment of a deep breath to relax my soul. Thank you and please pray for us.

  3. True enough we are part and parcel of God’s creation, the children created to His Holy image. Yes we must stand our ground, holding our faith, trusting on God mercy and helping all who are fading with sorrows of this pilgrim life. Medjugorje helps the downtrodden, gracefully leading them with Mary’s arms with Her trusted children, the Community of Caritas, leading all to the Beautiful NEW JERUSALEM. We are with you Caritas. Someone is praying for you, please do pray for us too. We are Divine Mercy Apostles Trying hard to bring God’s Kingdom on earth. So let us Pray for each flower . May all flowers Bloom and blossom sending their fragrance of love and peace to gain the Triumph Of Our Lady’s IMMACULATE HEART. Love to you all.
