Our Lady Queen of Peace,
Medjugorje October 11, 1984
Our Lady has often spoken about finding God in nature. The sites of Medjugorje are ordained by God as conversion ground. Everything speaks for the one who listens. A place where the voice of God is heard in the heart. It would not be difficult to find someone who experienced a profound grace just by walking the grape vineyards of Medjugorje. In October, the smell of harvest speaks and spurs one to reflect about life and death, where one has been and where one is going. Through sight, sound, touch, smell, and so many other things, Medjugorje speaks as with voices from Heaven. To walk these vineyards is to encounter these mystical messengers which speak to the heart. Our Lady said, “…God wants to save you and sends you messages through men, nature, and so many things…” (March 25, 1990) A visit to Medjugorje in this time of grace is a visit to encounter the Living God. To walk with Our Lady is greater for us, in this moment of time, than for those who walked with Moses in his time. Without prayer, this is difficult to comprehend. With prayer, it is easy to comprehend.
