Followers of Our Lady,

Be he atheist, Christian, Jewish, or Muslim – all will agree the world is in trouble, with a bleak future. How fortunate are we who are aware and believe in Our Lady’s apparitions in Medjugorje – our hope, our only hope for this particular time. Our Lady even connotates these times are singular in their happenings.

June 25, 1993

“…these times are particular…”

Where can we turn except to Our Lady for hope? The November elections give no hope. Senator McCain says he supports traditional marriages, yet he is on record for voting against the federal amendment for marriage which would, if implemented, override California’s Supreme Court’s recent decision which allows any type of abominable marriage. The other two candidates are clearly for marriage of the most perverse kind. So what hope do we have in the November elections, except for God to grant us some decisive actions of grace for a ‘seize the moment?’

Our Lady’s presence in July, here at Caritas, when we hand our Nation over to Her in consecration, is a seize the moment that can lead to other seize the moments. Again, where else can we turn? What are your choices? It is an opportunity unlike any other our Nation has ever had, except when it was born on July 4, 1776. We should view July 4, 2008, as such an opportunity to rebirth our Nation. Our Lady said:

May 16, 1987

“…Dear children, when God calls men, it is really a great thing. Think about how it would be sad to let pass those opportunities that God allows without taking them…”

Jim, from South Florida, drove to Caritas, 14 hours straight, a few days ago. He didn’t know anything about Caritas, our mission, or Medjugorje. He had never heard of Medjugorje. He and his wife are retired and live alone. In his home, he saw the July 1-5, 2008, twelve-page brochure about Our Lady’s apparition laying on a desk. He was amazed by it. His wife also read it and was amazed by it. Both were astounded, as they have had no visitors, and do not know how the brochure got on their desk. It was a big sign from God and they immediately made the decision to come in July, as well as Jim making an immediate visit. He said, when he got here, it felt like Heaven. We told him July will only intensify the grace.

Incredible stories are coming to us daily of a brochure “found here”, or a brochure that made its way to them through extraordinary circumstances, etc. You have an ‘opportunity’ now, like never before, to increase the numbers of active children who will follow Our Lady’s instructions. Be very active in these coming weeks. Tell everyone. Mail information to everyone. Phone everyone. E-mail everyone. See instructions below. You can make a difference in someone’s salvation. You can receive free any number of twelve-page brochures about July 1-5, 2008, by calling Caritas. There are countless Jims out there who are searching for hope, seeking “where do you turn in the midst of everything falling apart?” With the latest California Supreme Court verdict, even the first and oldest institution in existence, marriage, is now in the crosshairs of evil to be destroyed. Do you respond, “it will not happen”? Divorce has already destroyed over 50% of Christian marriages. This has made fertile ground for satan’s next step, of playing with God’s institution of marriage for total desecration. This must stop. Heaven must intervene. We must cry out to God. The hope is we can! And you can play a major role.

The opportunity is yours. It is easy. Decide each and every day until July 1st that you will do something concrete to spread life/nation changing, solid messages of Our Lady. Our Lady said:

August 6, 1982

“…I will give you yet some concrete messages for our time…”

Our Lady’s presence in our Nation in July at Caritas is a concrete message.

Each of you can easily be the catalyst of at least one other person coming to encounter Our Lady. We have heard from many individuals whose efforts resulted in 10, 20, and 50 plus people coming. It is your opportunity to choose or not to choose to bring people to the love, peace, and the hope of Our Lady. Please, don’t let the opportunity pass because of pleasures, entertainment, laziness, inactivity, or busyness. Decide and seize this opportunity now and continually in these next few weeks. Stop a moment and literally meditate and pray over these next words of Our Lady and what She wants from you.
