Concerning the Vatican Commission on Medjugorje:

A Friend of Medjugorje has never been concerned with the Church approval of Medjugorje. He does not sit around biting his nails, praying for this to happen, filled with anxiety that this must happen soon. The approval of Medjugorje is the Church’s responsibility. It is the Church’s job to make the final judgment in God’s perfect timing.

What he believes our job is, speaking of those who call themselves the children of Our Lady, is to live and promote Her messages—strongly and without reserve. It is our responsibility to give the Church the fruit of our lives that are based in the messages of Medjugorje so that the Church has something of which to judge these apparitions. The work we do for Our Lady, the carriers of peace we become through living Her messages is the testimony that we give not only to the Church, but to the entire world that these apparitions are from God. This is our responsibility, our role in God’s design. A Friend of Medjugorje always says, leave the Church to its responsibility to judge the fruit from the tree of Medjugorje, and we should always be in peace.

Soon, we will be releasing a new button on Medjugorje.com concerning Church Approval. It will expand these thoughts by A Friend of Medjugorje and give you greater confidence that Medjugorje is right where God wants it for the time being, without official approval of the Church, but the right to be embraced and promoted under the rules of Canon Law for private revelation.

 

In the Peace of Our Lady,

I know it has been some time ago now , but she will still be with you in thought’I came across this news as I was searching for family connections and Andrea’s mane came up. I live in the highland of Scotland, and would have loved to have talked to her about our family connection ? I hope you are all well Regards Gordon MacDonald. take care

  2. O, Glorious Apostle St. Jude, true relative of Jesus and Mary, I salute you through the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I praise and thank God for all the graces He has bestowed upon you. I implore you, through the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts, to look upon Andrea and her baby with compassion. Despise not our prayers for her healing, and let our trust be not in vain. To you has been assigned the privilege of aiding mankind in the most desperate cases. Come to her aid at this moment, that she may praise the mercies of God. All her life, We will be grateful to you, and you will be our faithful patron, until we can thank you in Heaven.Amen.Blessed Apostle with confidence we invoke thee! St. Jude, Help of the Hopeless, aid Andrea and her baby in their distress! In JESUS NAME!

  3. To the family of Andria, i love the the hope and faith that you have shown. If every one on earth had this kind of faith, the devil will be terribly defeated as he will not find a room any where in the world. Courage we will be with you in prayer, also try to think about the past generation where you came from and see if your grand parents didn’t live a reckless life that could have resulted in a generational curse(i don’t meat it is a generational curse but it might also be an inherited punishment) so that a prayer for braking it may be organized. I pray for God’s mercy up on this family.

Lord God, thank you for giving us your mother.

  9. Vicka said recently in an interview given to BBC Northern Ireland on a programme about Medjugorje, that Our Lady said it is important that we realise that WE are the church and that we believe. As for the ecclesial authorities, we are not to worry about that. Our Lady is taking care of that.

  10. You are so right, it will happen in God’s time. This sight has done so much for renewing my faith and love for Mary. Thanks

  12. I didn’t know if the Church would ever even be able to approve the apparitions especially since most apparitions were approved after Mary stopped appearing. God’s will be done. I am unworthy but thankful for the grace of faith that I have been given to believe. “Because it is by grace that you have been saved, through faith; not by anything of your own, but by a gift from God” Eph 2:8
