August 4, 2016 A.D.
Our Lady of Medjugorje said on August 2, 2016:
Our Lady comes for our own good. But, we have more to learn than that…
Our Lady said that She comes to “you” among “you” for “you” to give Her “your” concerns, for that She might intercede for “you” to God, for “your” good. In the plan of salvation, it is not some conglomeration of people, some massed group of people that She is looking at, but “you” as an individual that She wishes to save. But, are we missing the most important point? That God sends Her? She came the first time because God needed Her for His Son. She comes now, because God needs Her now for us, His children.
Today, as we celebrate Mary’s Eve, the Vigil of Our Lady’s birthday, have we stopped in our litany of concerns and trials to thank God that He sends Our Lady to us? That we would not know how to look at the world around us, that we would not know Him in the way we are able to know Him, if it were not for Her coming to us and teaching us as “little children”? Stop, then, in this moment and thank God that He loves us enough to let us know the Mother. Because as a Friend of Medjugorje wrote on August 2 in, The Battle Within, that:
“…a Queen whose concern for Her subjects is not as a Queen, but as a Mother. We have entered an age of a future recognition of Mary, the Mother…”1
We are beginning to know Her now. Later many more will know Her. If all the sweetness, joy, happiness, glory, kindness, peace and love could be summed up in one word, God would say simply, Mary.
