Does Our Lady See You As A Nonbeliever?

 

It was a clear, cold morning in Medjugorje for Mirjana’s 2nd of the month apparition this November 2nd at the Blue Cross in Medjugorje. Pilgrims were gathering well before 5:00 a. m., with some sleeping there through the night, in spite of the fact that the temperature was at about 32 degrees Farenheit with frost present in the village.
 

Rosaries were prayed throughout the morning in preparation for the apparition. When Medjugorje visionary Mirjana arrived, there was a distinct change in mood, a heightened awareness of the crowds in anticipation of Our Lady’s arrival, especially in light of the seriousness of the recent second of the month messages.
 

Mirjana’s disposition and preparation for the apparition were also very serious. She prayed along with the Rosary being recited in a very reserved manner.
 

It seemed quite sudden that Mirjana knelt up more erect as Our Lady appeared to her beginning at 8:42 a.m. Mirjana began with a smile and then began to listen intensely. Mirjana spent most of the time during this apparition in that manner, listening and nodding very much with some occasional words spoken back as she knelt before Our Lady. Her look was as of one trying to understand something. She didn’t display as much change in expression as she normally does, just a couple brief smiles, but mostly just this “searching” look and responding with frequent nods. When Our Lady left, Mirjana remained within herself for a few minutes silently praying. The apparition lasted for about five minutes. Following is the message:
 

Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s November 2, 2009
Message to Mirjana Soldo Given on the day for Non-believers

 

“Dear children; Also today I am among you to point you to the way that will help you to come to know God’s love, the love of God Who permitted you to call Him Father and to perceive Him as Father. I ask of you to sincerely look into your hearts and to see how much you love Him. Is He the last to be loved? Surrounded by material goods, how many times have you betrayed, denied and forgotten Him? My children, do not deceive yourselves with worldly goods. Think of your soul because it is more important than the body, cleanse it. Invoke the Father, He is waiting for you. Come back to Him. I am with you because He, in His mercy, sends me. Thank you.”

 

Does Our Lady See You As A Nonbeliever?

By A Friend of Medjugorje
 

When the apparitions began in 1981, Mirjana relayed that she perceived God as Someone who was stern. He was there to punish. He was distant from us. Mirjana did not perceive Him as a “Father”, much less called Him “Father” with the comprehension of what “father” means. In this way of being a believer, Mirjana had unbelief in her. The beginning messages for nonbelievers on the Second of the Month were very defined and were clearly for nonbelievers. Mirjana said Our Lady defined nonbelievers as those who do not know the love of God. This is what Mirjana told us. She said that the people who we believe are nonbelievers, such as atheists, are really people who do not know the love of God. This pattern of the Second of the Month message went on for some time. Our Lady then began to unveil that She was speaking to us, the believers in these messages. She was speaking to us, the children close to Her, and She began to ‘point’ out that much unbelief exists in our own hearts. This was a shocker for many for we thought it was for “them” the nonbelievers as opposed to “us” the converted. Now, many are plainly seeing we have different aspects of unbelief within us. At the same time, many are denying they have unbelief in themselves. Our Lady is pointing these aspects out to purify us. Our Lady wants us to be believers in God, in God as a Father. She wants to teach us who God is, just as She had to teach Mirjana who carried unbelief in her when she did not understand God as a loving Father. Mirjana’s unbelief was transformed by coming to know God’s love through Our Lady. She became more fully a believer and began to perceive God as a Father.
 

Still, many continue to think we, the followers of Our Lady, are the believers and those who are atheist, agnostics, etc. are the nonbelievers. Yet in today’s November 2, 2009 message Our Lady says,
 

“…Also today I am among you to point you to the way that will help you to come to know God’s love, the love of God…”

 

The material culture of the world has permeated the believer to form in the heart many aspects of unbelief. Our Lady asks us all, the believers, do we really love God first? Do we love Him last? Are you surrounded by material things which have caused you at times to forget Him? So many ‘things’ that have caused you to betray Him as Judases, through idolatry? How many today will you see holding the Rosary? How many today will you see reading their Bibles? In contrast, how many will you see holding and fondling electronic gadgets? Little gods, gods of your lives, gods who rule over the believers and nonbelievers alike, gods that have your true devotion, that would cause you to be shocked if you sincerely looked into your heart to see how much do you really love God above these things. Will you read the paper today, listen to the news, read a magazine? How much time reading the Bible? Which of those tells you of the love of God?
 

A great deception is taking place with believers. That deception often makes the believer, a nonbeliever. When the contrast of the way we live and the way the world lives is nearly indistinguishable what makes us different? Our character is supposed to be in total contrast with the culture. Just because everyone else is doing it doesn’t’ make it okay. Everybody else doing it does not give legitimacy. Rather it becomes a deception of legitimacy. This is not to say material things are not to be used, but rather it’s how we use them that determine if they are hurting or helping us towards eternal life. Our Lady just recently told us, on January 25, 2009, the guiding principle in using worldly things:

 

January 25, 2009

“…for all worldly things to be a help for you to draw closer to God the Creator …”
 

Evaluate the use of “worldly things” in your life. Are they drawing you closer to God, or are they a hindrance to you in your relationship with Your Father? The character of the individual whose way of life contradicts the cultures’ direction, is the definition of the messages of Our Lady of Medjugorje. We will speak more of this important message tonight on Radio WAVE. Click Here to Listen to the Radio WAVE Show About today’s message

In the Love of Our Lady

The Crowds on Apparition Hill

Out of all these faces, only one will look up in a moment’s time, and be transfigured by something no one else sees. Mirjana is seen here, kneeling at the foot of the Blue Cross, head bowed in prayer. Her mother, who always attends her daughter’s apparitions, is near her, holding the notebook that Mirjana will record the words of Our Lady given today. For anyone who has never been to an apparition with Mirjana, it is difficult to describe the amount of people who continually press into this small space so to be able to get a glimpse of Mirjana in ecstasy. Mirjana is at the centerpoint of this attention, and the crowds spread out from this point beyond what a camera can record, thousands and thousands of people who come hungry to experience a little bit what only Mirjana can see.

Mirjana Smiling

This is the smile of Mirjana that tells the pilgrims near her that Our Lady has come. It is full of love and tenderness, but absent is the total transformation of joy we often expect to see in the visionaries when Our Lady appears. Instead, what we don’t expect to see, at least at the entrance of Our Lady in this apparition to Mirjana, but what is also evident on Mirjana’s face, is pain and tiredness. Our Lady said just one month earlier in her last message to Mirjana, “…As I look at you, my heart seizes with pain. Where are you going my children?”… Mirjana seems to know that Our Lady will not be speaking joyful things to her today. Mirjana’s face, reveals if only a little, perhaps, the expression on Our Lady’s face. Our Lady comes to us full of the love and tenderness of a mother reunited with her children, but She cannot hide Her sorrow and concern of seeing Her children traveling down a path that keeps them distant from the Heart of God.

Mirjana with her hands crossed

Mirjana is seen here intently listening throughout the apparition today, taking in the words of Our Lady. Our Lady’s message today focused entirely on God, the Father. Three times She spoke the name “Father” but amazingly referred to God and God’s love more than 12 times in this short message. She speaks not only of God’s love but also His pain in being “betrayed, denied and forgotten .” What a beautiful picture Our Lady paints of God, who in His greatness “permits” us to “perceive Him as Father”. Who even after being hurt by His creatures, is always waiting patiently for us to come return to Him. But we who follow Our Lady know and understand that the clock is ticking towards the appointed hour when God must bring correction to our world that blatantly ignores His existence even as it uses and often abuses the material goods that He, as a good Father, provides for His children.

  1. i, too, is guilty of sometimes forgetting the love of our Father…when i felt pain and rejected, when people do me wrong, when in spite of loving, some people still do you harm. But then, i realize in the end, it is still loving more that makes God happy. What is important is to continue in loving. Our Lady, our Mother will lead us to her Son..i pray that me and my family will always be under her mantle of protection. I pray my family will be able to visit our dear Mother in Medjugorje.

  4. It is a beautiful gift to the people of the world that the Blessed Mother visits the people of the world. I hope she never stops visiting her childresn of the world until all of us are in heaven. The grace of God is certainly upon us and we pray that it continues to grow and bear fruit.

  5. David F. Williams

    I firmly believe that God came to us in human form for us to be able to relate to Him as Father of us all, and for us to see the loving face of Jesus when we pray to Him. This is what I feel Our Lady is conveying to us now. I love You my Mother, and love Our Lord…I pray for my fellow humans – a mere sinner myself xxx Pray for me my brothers and sisters – God Bless You

  6. Caritas, I am so bless to have been to Medjugorje/Caritas to receive Our Lady. I never knew how powerful before these 2 trips reciting the Rosary everyday. When, I pray I feel not only the sorrows, but the pain of man kind. Oh, how I wish God’s people would come alive & join us. Please God & Our Dear Mother forgive us for being so blind. I will continue to pray daily for all mankind. Love Your Child of Christ……

  8. By reading Our Lady’s message I realize how much I have betrayed, denied and forgotten the Father just today! (not to tell most of my life) I’m a weak soul. Reading the messages and the writings from A friend of Medjugorje is cleansing my spirit. I thank all of you around the world who join Mirjana in prayer as praying for non-believers you are praying for me.

  10. Yes, so true for me too. The worldly attractions people, places, things are like sticker burrs in a field they just attach themselves and are so hard to pull off. Not going into the fields by recognizing the weeds of atttachment is the key. I have a very loving Father on Earth too and was very seemingly stern as a young child and unapproachable but now in my Senior years of life I know why. He is now 88 years old and struggling with his deterioriating body however I see his bright Loving SOUL.

  11. I thank you Mama Mary for the continuous protection to our land, and entire world, in spite of many trials and sufferings, you gave us strength, courage and fervent faith to God. Mama Mary we beg you gather us all under your Holy Mantle. Amen.

  12. A nonbeliever who wants to bel

    On reading your article it is difficult to separate God in my head from a father who is reprimanding/punishing. My own father was,although he did love us he didnt say it,his method of communication was correction,not much praise ever, and we lived in fear of doing things wrong. It is hard to imagine a loving father-the other members of my family have difficulty in the role of being fathers. I pray for my parents RIP,surviving siblings & my own family that we may know Gods love and each others

  13. As I stuided Marjana’s face and eyes, I felt admonished by my God through Our Holy Mother. My heart sank! I’m afraid to ask for the truth to be revealed to me as I examine my conscience of how many times I have denied, betrayed and forgotten my Triume God!!!

  19. When I first heard of the visions through a friend at work in 1981 my heart and thoughts have been with MARY more so than before her visits. I pray for the Friend Of Medjugorie to continue his efforts and the many ways that he is bringing MARY’s messages to us. Now I know what a true NONBELIEVER is. May the HEAVENLY FATHER send the HOLY SPIRIT to descend on all the baptised so that we will not be afraid to open our mouths to the NONBELIEVERS.

  21. How much longer do we have before our Lord puts the world right! How far do we have to fall before he can not hold his hand back anymore! We as a people are not only lost but have become sensitized to how our world is! It will take the hand of our Mother Mary to bring us back to her son! But without the prayer of the people for our sake we are lost! Jesus have mercy on us sinners!!!

PRAY FOR ME AND MY FAMILY. GOD BLESS YOU. DAMIEN FERNANDES VASAI INDIA.

  23. Blessed Mother thank you for these words which apply one hundred per cent to me. I unceasingly keep making petitions and requests to Our Father and He always answers me and then I go on my way. I truly love Our Father but do not tell him enough – please guide me ever closer to Him. I profess to love all people, but I often wonder if my love is enough to enable me to reach Heaven and pray that I have enough days left on this earth to proclaim my faithful love to the Father continually forever.

  24. Thank you Blessed Mother, thank you!Permit me to live in continuous grace as a believer. I entrust my family to your son,and to you, through the two most loving, forgiving hearts, may we strive daily, to move ever closer to God’s life for us, here on earth. Help us put to use Grace provided. Amen

Help us put to use Grace provided. Amen

  26. As i was reading the message that our Lady gave today I knew that it was meant for me, and other believers, who get tied up with our modern gadgets and put God on the back burner. I thank you blessed Mother for your love and understanding and for wanting nothing more than to bring us closer to the Father and eternal life.

  27.

  30. Blessed Mother please help my unbelief in your will at this time Jesus i Trust in your will and the my Mother Marys intentions for my family

  31. If anything is really communicated, it is time is nearly at and end. Our relationship to God and the holy mother is of primary importance. I join in prayer with the holy mother, that the Lord will have mercy on us; that broken hearts and minds and bodies will be healed, and more importantly souls regenerated and set free to follow Him till the end. Nektarios

  32. This morning, praying the Holy Rosery, I wept with great sorrow, not for the unbelievers, but for the lack of belief in myself, which I wrongly percieve myself to be full of belief. Each time I worry about anything or anyone I have lost my belief. I believe, help my unbelief. Thank you Father for your love. Thank you Our Lady for bringing us to Our Father in your holy arms. Just as you presented Jesus, your son, to God’s Holy Temple, you bring us, your children, to your son, Jesus

  34. I love to hear what the Blessed Mother tells us. Sometimes I fear what the end result would be and there are other time I pray my faith is strong enough to continue forward. But at the end of the day, I truly believe the Blessed Mother is looking over all of us and I place my trust and love in Her. I wish my children would feel the same way. Our country, is sick with evil and it is affecting our kids. My daughter is mentally sick but could be well. I pray for her to begin to know love and God.

  35. Vicki L. Collier-Chambers

    Ava Maria, blessings and thank you,this is wonderful! This message has really made me think, or perhaps the Holy Spirit is laying heavy on my heart. I do not want to be a non-believer I choose to belong to God The Father, I need help and I want to make sure that I am living as required. It is so easy to get caught up in work and family!! I have also been active in the pro-life movement and become a political activists(in some respects). How do I live in the world,but not be of the world? Thank

  36. What a wonderful and beautiful message from Our Lady! I am so concerned about my friend and relatives that say they do not believe or have a lack of faith, however, I need to ask myself the question, Do I seek God first? I believe so therefore I need to place God more important than everything else! Our Lady, please help me with my priorities so that I will be more concerned with the cleansing of my soul so I can love and serve others and bring glory to Jesus, our Lord and savior! God Bless!

  37. One of my sisters said she and her husband have been mentors to a teenage boy because both parents are alcoholics and he gets no love. He sold drugs, got involved in gangs, etc. My sister and her husband, Larry gave this young boy love and attention, took him fishing, hunting, camping and this boy has come alive. He said the last time he went to church the pastor was talking about God as a mean judge so he ended up hating God. With good people, others can come to open up to God.

  38. I too am disheartened with how materialistic mankind has gotten. I am proud to carry my Rosary with me at all times. Actually I feel naked without it in my pocket. I pray to Our Blessed Mother in Heaven daily and know that someday I will be able to see her beauty and witness Gods glory. I pray for my children who have totally thrown God out of their hearts and souls. I ask Our Mother to have mercy on their souls. Amen

  39. The commentary on the message is very beautiful and gives direct examples of how each one of us has a certain level of unbelief in his life. Even if we pray the rosary and read the bible on a daily basis this commentary reminds us that we must pray out of love and not out of duty or fear from punishment. The Virgin mentioned “Father” 3 times, probably to tell us that when we really think of God as our Father, then we will pray out of love . thank you author, May the Virgin bless you.

  40. Thank you for these beautiful words..We have to learn to love of Our Father since He love us so much…We have to learn to pray to Him and remember everyday how much He love us…Our lives are pending ans we are getting closer everyday to the Secrets in order to make correction to His world that is going relentless to the abysm!

  41. It was Jesus himself who in the Lord’s prayer referred to God as “Our Father who is in heaven”. Our Lady and dear mother of Medjugorje is telling us through the messages given to Mirjana, how God is our loving Father longing for the salvation of all men. Let all sinners remember the parable of the “prodigal son” and return to be embraced by the good Father Thank you Mirjana for your mission, to give our Lady’s messages to humanity.
