How Can You Understand “I lived your life”

What follows is a writing from a Friend of Medjugorje, November 2, 2014. It explains in very plain language what we are to do with Our Lady’s messages to expand our capacity, and make them change how we see the world around us. In just a few short paragraphs, a Friend of Medjugorje explains that to limit Our Lady’s words to be only about prayer and religion is a, “limited way of thinking.” And, back in 2014, a Friend of Medjugorje mentions government and politics and even “infectious diseases.” Read with prayer. – Caritas of Birmingham

Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s November 2, 2014
Apparition and Message Given through Mirjana on the Day for Nonbelievers

“Dear children, I am with you with the blessing of my Son, with you who love me and who strive to follow me. I also desire to be with you who do not accept me. To all of you I am opening my heart full of love and I am blessing you with my motherly hands. I am a mother who understands you. I lived your life and lived through your sufferings and joys. You who are living the pain understand my pain and suffering because of those of my children who do not permit the light of my Son to illuminate them; those of my children who are living in darkness. This is why I need you – you who have been illuminated by the light and have comprehended the truth. I am calling you to adore my Son so that your soul may grow and reach true spirituality. My apostles, it is then that you will be able to help me. To help me means to pray for those who have not come to know the love of my Son. In praying for them you are showing to my Son that you love Him and follow Him. My Son promised me that evil will never win, because you, the souls of the just, are here; you who strive to say your prayers with the heart; you who offer your pain and suffering to my Son; you who comprehend that life is only a blink; you who yearn for the Kingdom of Heaven. All of this makes you my apostles and leads you towards the victory of my heart. Therefore, my children, purify your hearts and adore my Son. Thank you.”

How Can You Understand “I lived your life”

by A Friend of Medjugorje

Who are those whom, Our Lady said today, caused:

November 2, 2014

“…my pain and suffering because of those of my children who do not permit the light of my Son to illuminate them…”

Our Lady said:

October 2, 2014

“…do you not recognize the signs of the times? Do you not recognize that all of this that is around you, all that is happening…”

Yet, many do not want to see. Yet still, being watchful, we ‘can’ see what is happening and the signs around us. But in what context do we understand these signs? The context we view them is to be through the template of Our Lady’s messages. In other words, Our Lady’s messages are a Biblical worldview, giving the context we should view the ‘happenings.’ Our Lady did not say, look away from what is happening, but to “look [at] what is happening all around you.” That means everything from infectious diseases and pestilence, to your work, government/politics, wars, the economy – everything. Our Lady’s messages are for everything happening in the world and how to look at it. With fear? In no way are we to be afraid. It is Our Lady who has said:

January 2, 2013

“…Do not be afraid…”

Some may think applying Our Lady’s messages to everything in life and the world as an error. Some think Our Lady’s messages must be only about prayer, etc., not infectious diseases, government, laws, etc. This is a result of a limited capacity thinking, and a minimizing of Our Lady’s messages, constricting them to only your knowledge instead of being open to being illuminated. A mentality, as such, has not the capacity to be open to understanding how broad and all encompassing Our Lady’s messages are. They are to change the world. The way we interpret the messages is the way we will course the world’s future, changing its direction. Our Lady said:

March 25, 1990

“…you must change the direction of your life…”

It is Our Lady who also said:

April 4, 1985

“…I wish to keep on giving you messages as it has never been in history from the beginning of the world…”

Why did Our Lady say this? Because through the messages, the directives are given to change the direction of the world. Her words encompass everything to change the world. Our Lady’s words, “change the direction of your life,” is how the world will change. Your life, what goes on around your “goings and comings” throughout your day is your world.

When one fasts, Our Lady tells us, one will not be afraid of evil and when one prays, one is not afraid of the future. Those who do not fast, do not pray, show they have no desire to understand or accept with seriousness what Our Lady is saying. Understanding Our Lady’s messages and Her plans come through increasing your capacity to be filled with a greater understanding of them. Our Lady said:

June 25, 1991

“…There are many people who do not desire to understand my messages and to accept with seriousness what I am saying…”

That understanding, that comprehension, is achieved, is increased every time you increase your capacity. Prayer helps you not to be afraid of the future and fasting helps you not to be in fear of evil. That being the case, it also increases your capacity to grasp Our Lady’s plans and messages to a greater degree; your capacity to grasp more of what Our Lady’s words mean, and how to transform them into life. Every time you pray and fast, you expand your capacity for God to give you more, for Our Lady to teach you the next lesson. Our Lady wants to explain many things to us, but many have not the capacity to understand Her words, much less hear them. As Our Lady said, “…many people who do not desire to understand my messages and to accept with seriousness what I am saying…” Are you one of them? Are you “partially” one of them? You can change immediately.

Simply put, when you pray and fast, your capacity is increased to see, understand and comprehend what you did not before. Prayer and fasting will increase your capacities to not be afraid of identifying evil and fighting it when it is being perpetrated upon you or strengthen you from being afraid to hear what the enemies of Christianity are planning for the future. It is not being political. It is not an agenda. It is peering into the core of what and the why’s of “… all of this that is around you, all that is happening…” for the purpose to see what course to take today to alter our future course. Now reread slowly and prayerfully today’s November 2, 2014 message and see if your capacity increased giving you greater understanding in the second read, simply by the spiritual exercise of reading this letter to you. Even reread this letter after the message and you’ll have more capacity to see in the letter what you did not before.  Pray first to the Holy Spirit and try it.

With Love,
A Friend of Medjugorje

Description and Pictures from the November 2, 2014 Apparition

It has been beautiful days in Medjugorje, celebrating the feast of All Saints and the Holy Souls. Blue skies, sunny days, and mild temperatures during the day have kept pilgrims on the mountains and walking through the vineyards to soak up the grace of Our Lady’s presence. November typically brings to end the pilgrimage season each year for many people in the village and those who bring groups from around the world, though Medjugorje is never without pilgrims all together. For the villagers it’s a time of rest and a time for family as many of the shops and pansions close for the winter months in Medjugorje, bringing a slower pace of life. However, Mirjana’s apparitions continue to be heavily attended, even in the colder months and today was no different.

A great many buses rolled into Medjugorje just two days ago bringing thousands of pilgrims who desired to be in Our Lady’s presence on the second of the month, as well as many Croatians who visit Medjugorje each year for the Feast of All Saints and All Souls. Though the temperatures during the day have continued to be pleasant, recently the mornings and evenings have turned very chilly. Yet, the cold did not stop some pilgrims from keeping their prayer vigil by the Blue Cross all night long. The pilgrims of Caritas of Birmingham’s November pilgrimage were by far the largest group with 30 of our 60 pilgrims spending the whole night at the Blue Cross for Our Lady’s apparition. All through the night other pilgrims arrived finding a rock to sit upon or a tree or rock wall to lean against. Discomforts seemed not to hinder anyone, as the willing spirits of those gathered, motivated by their love for Our Lady, were stronger than the temptations of the flesh. The stars, of which Our Lady mentioned in Her September 25, 2014 message, shown brightly against the night sky lighting the way for thousands who began walking to the Blue Cross before the dawn’s light began to slowly rise and just afterwards.

Also, just before dawn, joyous singing and the prayer of the Rosary could then be heard over the loud speakers as individual groups praying quietly through the night, now joined all together in prayer and singing leading up to the time of Mirjana’s apparition around 8:30 a.m. Mirjana arrived just as the sun broke from behind Apparition Mountain, flooding the area around the Blue Cross with light and warmth. Our Lady’s arrival, soon afterwards, did the same for the hearts and souls of all those gathered to be near to Her this early November morning.

Medjugorje November 2, 2014

Mirjana’s eyes become radiant at her first glimpse of Our Lady. An unearthly joy permeates her whole being as the first words of Our Lady’s greeting reaches her ears, such that Mirjana’s face becomes in a way transfigured, reflecting the light of Our Lady, making the invisible visible for those who see Mirjana.

Medjugorje visionary, Jakov was asked at the beginning of the apparitions if Our Lady’s body appears as “light” or as a real body. Jakov replied:

“The Blessed Mother has a real body. It is three dimensional, but there is nothing about the Blessed Virgin Mary that is like anything I’ve ever seen before – Her radiance, Her greeting, Her smile, Her immense beauty.” 1

Our Lady comes, today, on the Feast of All Souls, and speaks of Her life, identifying with Her apostles, as a person living in Heaven, while remembering Her life on earth to encourage Her apostles.

A Friend of Medjugorje wrote in February 2012:

“What do you think of this moment of time in which we live? How often do you stop, really stop and “think,” really think about this? It is the plan of Our Lady to raise up apostles…”

Our Lady said today,

“That is why I need you…that you will be able to help me…”

Medjugorje November 2, 2014

Our Lady comes to open Scripture beyond what could be contained in words, as John, who was given to Her by Jesus, representing all Her children, wrote:

“There are also many things that Jesus [said and] did, but if these were to be described individually, I do not think the whole world would contain the books that would be written.”

John 21:25

Our Lady of Medjugorje comes as the Woman of Revelation to reveal these “many things” that Jesus said and did. She, the Mother of the Messiah, comes to reveal what He revealed to Her – anew – a new revelation about old revelation. Jesus, the Messiah, promised Peter that,

“the gates of the netherworld (hell) shall not prevail against it (the Church)”

Matthew 16:18

Our Lady, the Mother of the Messiah, reveals today:

“…My Son promised me that evil will never win, because you, the souls of the just, are here…”

Medjugorje NOvember 2, 2014

Eighteen years ago, A Friend of Medjugorje wrote about the means to gain souls of non-believers, quoting Our Lady.

Our Lady said to St. Dominic:

“…many priests preach thunderously against the worst kind of sin. They fail, because a sick person [non-believer] cannot be given bitter medicine until he’s prepared by being in the right frame of mind to benefit from it. Priests must first enkindle a love of prayer, especially the love of my Rosary…When priests give a sermon, urge people to pray my Rosary and your words will bear much fruit for souls.”

Excerpt from Medjugorje, Mirjana a Mystery Revealed, by A Friend of Medjugorje

Our Lady said September 9, 1988:

“…Prayer is medicine that heals…”

Today, Our Lady pleads for help:

“…To help me means to pray for those who have not come to know the love of my Son…”

Medjugorje November 2, 2014

Our Lady is preparing to ascend into Heaven, once more leaving Mirjana behind. Mirjana suffers greatly each time Our Lady leaves, but understands she, like Our Lady after Jesus ascended, must remain as a witness and a sign of strength for Our Lady’s apostles.

Many come to Medjugorje looking for signs. Mirjana is a sign. The Rosary is a sign.

Our Lady reveals something profound today that should shake all who read this. Our Lady revealed, today, November 2, 2014, you are a sign of Jesus’ promise to Her:

“…My Son promised me that evil will never win, because you…are here…”

Reflect on these words of Our Lady in a deep, deep way.

Strive anew to live Her messages.

Begin with prayer today.

„Draga djeco, S vama sam uz blagoslov moga Sina, s vama koji me ljubite i koji me nastojite slijediti. Ja želim biti i s vama koji me ne prihvaćate. Svima vam otvaram svoje srce puno ljubavi i blagoslivljam vas svojim majčinskim rukama. Majka sam koja vas razumije. Živjela sam vaš život i proživjela vaše patnje i radosti. Vi koji živite bol razumijete moju bol i patnju radi one moje djece koja ne dozvoljavaju da ih obasja svjetlost moga Sina, one moje djece koja žive u tami. Zato trebam vas, vas koje je obasjala svjetlost i koji ste shvatili istinu. Pozivam vas da se klanjate mome Sinu da bi vaša duša rasla i dostigla pravu duhovnost. Apostoli moji, tada će te mi moći pomoći. Pomoći meni znači moliti za one koji nisu upoznali ljubav moga Sina. Moleći za njih vi pokazujete mome Sinu da ga ljubite i slijedite. Moj Sin mi je obećao da zlo nikada neće pobijediti, jer tu ste vi duše pravednika; vi koji vaše molitve nastojite reći srcem; vi koji svoje boli i patnje prinosite mome Sinu; vi koji shvaćate da je život samo jedan treptaj; vi koji čeznete za Kraljevstvom Nebeskim. Vas sve to čini mojim apostolima i vodi prema pobjedi moga srca. Zato, djeco moja, očistite vaša srca i klanjajte se mome Sinu. Hvala vam!”


“Cari figli, sono con voi con la benedizione di mio Figlio, con voi che mi amate e che cercate di seguirmi. Io desidero essere anche con voi, che non mi accogliete. A tutti voi apro il mio Cuore pieno d’amore e vi benedico con le mie mani materne. Sono una Madre che vi capisce: ho vissuto la vostra vita e ho provato le vostre sofferenze e gioie. Voi, che vivete il dolore, comprendete il mio dolore e la mia sofferenza per quei miei figli che non permettono che la luce di mio Figlio li illumini, per quei miei figli che vivono nelle tenebre. Per questo ho bisogno di voi, di voi che siete stati illuminati dalla luce e che avete compreso la verità. Vi invito ad adorare mio Figlio, affinché la vostra anima cresca e raggiunga una vera spiritualità. Apostoli miei, allora potrete aiutarmi. Aiutare me significa pregare per coloro che non hanno conosciuto l’amore di mio Figlio. Pregando per loro, voi mostrate a mio Figlio che lo amate e lo seguite. Mio Figlio mi ha promesso che il male non vincerà mai, perché qui ci siete voi, anime dei giusti: voi, che cercate di dire le vostre preghiere col cuore; voi, che offrite i vostri dolori e sofferenze a mio Figlio; voi, che comprendete che la vita è soltanto un battito di ciglia; voi, che anelate al Regno dei Cieli. Tutto ciò vi rende miei apostoli e vi conduce al trionfo del mio Cuore. Perciò, figli miei, purificate i vostri cuori ed adorate mio Figlio. Vi ringrazio!” 


„Liebe Kinder, ich bin bei euch mit dem Segen meines Sohnes, mit euch, die ihr mich liebt und die ihr versucht, mir zu folgen. Ich möchte auch mit euch sein, die ihr mich nicht annehmt. Euch allen öffne ich mein Herz voller Liebe und segne euch mit meinen mütterlichen Händen. Ich bin eine Mutter, die euch versteht. Ich habe euer Leben gelebt und eure Leiden und Freuden durchlebt. Ihr, die ihr Schmerzen lebt, versteht meinen Schmerz und mein Leiden um jene meiner Kinder, die nicht zulassen, dass sie das Licht meines Sohnes umstrahlt, jene meiner Kinder, die in der Finsternis leben. Deshalb brauche ich euch, euch, die das Licht umstrahlt hat und die ihr die Wahrheit begriffen habt. Ich rufe euch auf, meinen Sohn anzubeten, damit eureSeele wächst und wahre Spiritualität erreicht. Meine Apostel, dann werdet ihr mir helfen können. Mir zu helfen bedeutet, für diejenigen zu beten, die die Liebe meines Sohnes nicht kennengelernt haben. Indem ihr für sie betet, zeigt ihr meinem Sohn, dass ihr Ihn liebt und Ihm nachfolgt. Mein Sohn hat mir versprochen, dass das Böse niemals gewinnen wird, denn ihr, die Seelen der Gerechten, seid da; ihr, die ihr versucht, eure Gebete mit Herz zu sagen; ihr, die ihr eure Schmerzen und Leiden meinem Sohn darbringt; ihr, die ihr begreift, dass das Leben nur ein Wimpernschlag ist; ihr, die ihr euch nach dem himmlischen Königreich sehnt. All dies macht euch zu meinen Aposteln und führt euch zum Sieg meines Herzens. Deshalb, meine Kinder, reinigt eure Herzen und betet meinen Sohn an. Ich danke euch!”

  1. Thank You Mother for your love! We love you Mother, and trying hard to do what you want us to do. Take our prayers to Jesus our lord. Every day by meditating the Holy Rosary.we were crowning you and Jesus with Roses! We love you and Lord Jesus so much!

  2. Praised be Jesus and Mama Mary. “My Son promised me that evil will never win, because you are here” The first reading today, Nov.2, Book of Wisdom 3:1-9 talked about the Souls Of The Just that are now in the hand of God. And Our Lady pointed to us ” the souls of the just” who are here on earth, Her apostles, “you who strive to say your prayers with the heart; you who offer your pain and suffering to my Son; you who comprehend that life is only a blink; you who yearn for the Kingdom of Heaven.” you, the community, with your life, witness the souls of the just, life that is seamless, life that is consecrated to Our Lady, for the Triumph of the Two Hearts. Thank for giving your life so we may have life. Beloved Father give us the grace to be a “sign of Jesus promise to Mama Mary”. We accept that we are not worthy or has the capacity, but because You are God of Majesty and Splendor, You can make us ready, Blessed be God.
