Our Lady of Medjugorje’s January 2, 2019 message for the world, given on the day of prayer for nonbelievers through Mirjana:
Caring for Others vs. Caring for Self
Mirjana has said to the effect that:
“If you see one tear of Our Lady, you will never want to sin again.”
For Our Lady to say, “Dear children! Sadly…” should immediately bring us to a deep concentration of what Her next words would state. Indeed, they are very indicting. Those words of Our Lady say:
3. Personal Interests
Evaluate yourself. Do you follow Our Lady? Can you check off all four of the above that you do not harbor these things? They don’t pertain to you? Can you check off three of them? Can you check off two of them? Can you check off even one of them? Today Our Lady focuses us on self, not everybody else.
“But others have hurt me!” Clinging to your hurt indicts you not to be able to check off any of the four. You will keep the battle going.
“I’m not happy with others!” Leads to resentment and evolves into hatred.
I don’t get to do what I want to do!” You dwell on personal interests.
“I don’t want to share myself or things with others!” A self-focused person can only dwell in selfishness, with a form of corrupt “idolatry of self,” and character of stinginess.
These four vices destroy peace and life and result in:
The world that surrounds your daily goings and comings is your world. The world, for you, is not in a foreign land. It is where you dwell –your habitat. Is your world hell? Does the world you dwell in have only three on the list? Then it is still hell. Does the world you dwell in have two on the list or only one on the list? Then the world you dwell in is Purgatory. If none of the four is on your list, then the world you dwell in is Heaven.
It does not matter what others make their world into, rather it matters that you make the world around you a dwelling of Heaven. Medjugorje visionary Vicka said: “Those whose life is hell in this world, just continue it when they die. Those whose life is Purgatory in this world, just continue it when they die. Those whose life is Heaven in this world, just continue it when they die.”*
It does not mean if you can check off all four of these: battle, hatred, personal interests and selfishness – that you will not have difficulties. You will. But Our Lady tells us the difference between those who are extinguishing faith vs. those who are seeking Her. Our Lady speaks clearly of who those are who are not in battle, hatred, personal interests and selfishness. She states:
Those who will suffer great difficulties vs. those who will suffer great difficulties is differentiated by:
Peace vs. Battle
Love vs. Hatred
Interest of Others vs. Personal Interests
Selflessness vs. Selfishness
Results in Restful Contentment and Faith vs. Results in Restless Discontentment and Faithlessness
Where are you on the list?
Versus vs. Versus
In the Hope You Strive for Heaven in Your Life on Earth,
