How Attentively Does Our Lady Listen to Us?

The apparitions of Our Lady of Medjugorje are profound. But how much does Our Lady really hear us? How much does She really listen to us when we pray to Her, especially during the apparition? This story show how much Our Lady’s presence at Medjugorje is for each of us.
 

An extraordinary moment in one’s life is being present during an apparition with one of the visionaries. It is beyond understanding to realize that during the apparition with Marija, one of the six Medjugorje visionaries, Our Lady appears to her in a physical, touchable form. She is truly present to her in body, not just spirit. To add that She appears as the woman in the Book of Revelation, Chapter 12, with stars about Her head leaves us without words to explain the extraordinary time we are in. During these apparitions, everything Our Lady does has a profound meaning. There is a reason for everything She does. One particular apparition at Marija’s house proves this. Only four or five people were present and one who was there describes what happened:

 

The apparition began in the usual way. Marija was kneeling before the statue of Our Lady and I was right next to her. During the time of the apparition, I had some special intention to present to Our Lady while She was appearing to Marija. I asked these requests in a low whisper so no one else in the room could hear them. While stating them, I felt a particular urge that Our Lady wanted me to really make these requests in a special way and it was what She wanted to hear. After the apparitions, Marija stunned me when she said that Our Lady accepted our prayers and blessed us and She did something unusual. Of course, I asked about this and Marija said that during the apparition Our Lady leaned over slightly with Her head tilted sideways toward us. I thought it strange and asked why Our Lady did this. Marija relayed that Our Lady was listening intently to our prayers and She turned Her ear toward us to actually hear us.

It was touching to know I had gone to Medjugorje with this special need to present these requests to Our Lady and She indicated Her attentiveness by this beautiful gesture. It taught me that while Our Lady can always hear our prayers, prayers really from the heart receive much more attention than those said with little intent on our part.

  6. I am reading this before I leave for 11:15 pm mass. It is raining and cold. Our Lady”s message for me today was about attending 11:15 Mass and thanking Her children for coming in the cold for Her son Jesus. To pray for peace. My grown daughter is very ill mentally and emotionally. In listening to her talk on and on over the phone, I prayed to our Lady, please, Mother love her through me. I heard Mary say in my heart. This is how I too come to her. Spiritually ill. AND SHE LOVES ME.

  8. I read this with joy, I have been praying for my soon to be ex wife to move towards Christ and away from the new age and materialism/desperate housewives mindset that has destroyed our marriage. I will be in Medjugorje in May (god willing)……..

  9. Wow! For years I’ve been praying for my husbands converstion. The words A Friend of Medjugorje spoke stuck in my head a long time, “Bring them to July 1-5th and Our Lady will do the rest.” By a miracle of God I was able to convince him to go with our 4 children and during the first apparition in the field, I was yelling silently from my heart, “MARY, HERE HE IS, HE IS HERE!!! HE IS HERE!!” for the entire apparition. I prayed and cried the whole time!!! Thank you for posting!! God Bless All!

  11. As I read this article, I remember the message during Mirjan’s apparation when I was present with my family near Blue Cross – Mother looked all around -isn’t it Her love, compassion and assurance that she is a Mother of each one of us and our prayers are being heard by Her?Heavenly Father, I thank you so much for giving us Mother Mary as our Mother, Who is always guiding us the correct way to Her Son Jesus, to love and forgive one another, never to loose faith when we face trials in our lives.

    Ask Mary with true sincerity and it surely will come true. I have a 3 year old boy name Jacob to prove it. The best way to Jesus is through Mary. Thanks again Mary and help me to stay focused on your intentment.
