Our Lady, in Her message through Mirjana on March 2, 2020, spoke of:
“…the most beautiful bouquets of roses made up of your prayers, acts of mercy and love…”
Our Lady is calling us that this is a time to increase prayers, not just during Lent, but throughout this entire year. We have a chance to do an act of mercy, just as She called us to do through Mirjana on March 2, 2020.
(Photo taken at Caritas, February 29, 2020) – The moon illuminates the Cross on Penitentiary Mountain, the evening of the first Patriotic Rosary of the nine-month novena. Our Lady has appeared to Medjugorje visionary Marija at this Cross, called us to it, and blessed it. For more about the consecration of the Cross for the Soul of America, visit here.
Our Lady’s message of March 2, 2020, is a call to increase our prayers, acts of mercy and love. As we begin the nine-month Patriotic Rosary novena, preceding the November elections, we make an appeal to increase your prayers for this nation, do an act of mercy for it, and show your love by taking part in this special novena, uniting not only Medjugorje prayer groups, but all those of good-will. Everyone benefits by these prayers. To take part in this novena, one’s political views are not important. What matters is love. If you love this nation, you will pray for it, and believe that these prayers will result in what God desires. In a message which a Friend of Medjugorje quotes often and we repeat here, Our Lady of Medjugorje said on December 31, 1985:
“You will not have peace through the presidents but through prayer.”
We again extend an invitation for you to come to the Cross at Caritas on one of the days of the Novena, and if you are not able to make it, to take part in union with your Medjugorje prayer group, church prayer group or just with your family. See the novena schedule here.
The Cross is very central to the mission of Caritas, especially taking into account the fact that a Friend of Medjugorje started Caritas because of an incident with the Cross. See more about the Cross in Caritas’s founding here. We believe this location, which was consecrated for the Soul of America, is especially important in this election year.
