Our Lady said on August 25, 2004:
When Our Lady came to the founder of Caritas and his wife’s home through Marija in 1988, people dropped everything to come and be blessed by Our Lady. As seen in the picture above, petitions were left on the Tree and near the statue of Our Lady. Our Lady appeared in the Field, and She said through Marija on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 1988:
So with the promise of Our Lady’s intercession, many graces and answered prayers resulted from these first visits of Our Lady, which continue to this day. Our Lady has confirmed in Her messages that God will answer our prayers. However, there are conditions to this. Our Lady tells us:
August 25, 2004
The conditions are:
1. Kneel and open your heart before God
2. Convert the heart
3. Decide as in the first days (of your conversion) to completely change your life
4. Our Lady will intercede
5. God will hear and answer
Continuing in our spiritual exercises this week, thinking back to the time that Our Lady first came to Caritas in 1988, the conditions were right. Yesterday we mentioned that the founder of Caritas and his wife’s desire to remove false idols was the first step to bring the presence of Our Lady and Her angels. Today, take these above 5 steps, even if for just 5 minutes. A Friend of Medjugorje told a group of people in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 2013 that if you cannot pray for any length of time, take just 60 seconds, and place your heart in God’s presence.
“God I kneel before you and open my heart. You know my heart. You know what I desire to change, what I am holding on to and what I do not want to change. In this moment, I desire to convert my heart. I decide in this moment to change my life, as when I first went through conversion and my heart was in love with You. I beg you God to hear my prayers and answer them, because I ask in the name of Jesus, the Son of Mary, Whom You have given this time to. This is Her time. Therefore please hear and answer me, if not for my sake, at least because of Her. Amen.”
