The visionaries have been given many gifts. One of these gifts is the gift of love. Just being in their presence is a cause of conversion. Their sacrifices have converted thousands of people; yet, some individuals downplay the visionaries. We have heard some say: “People make too much over who the visionaries are,” or, “They are really not important,” or, “They are nothing more than telephone lines.” We believe this is a gross error. They have to be the first to live the messages and witness with their lives that they are extremely important to the plans of God. Realizing that there are six billion people on this planet and reading what Our Lady said to Ivanka at her last daily apparition, one can understand that these visionaries are very important.

“No one in the world has had the grace which you, your brothers, and sisters have received (the visionaries).”
To go further, Father Jozo quotes Our Lady’s own words to the visionaries, not only about their importance, but also about ours.
January 1988 – Father Jozo
“The first days Our Lady spoke about four things, and the visionaries believed Her. She said to them: ‘I chose you. I call you. I need you. Your are important.’ Those words Our Lady wants to tell you again now. Those words are meant for you. Our Lady, not I, tells you that you are important. These are Her words now.
“She tells you: ‘I chose you.’ She says, ‘I have a plan to save the world and I chose you.’ Everyone of you here is chosen by Our Lady. And She adds, speaking to each pilgrim personally, ‘I want you to become a prophet. Go and be strong, be courageous, like David, like Moses, like My Son, like Moses who had to meet the Lord on Mount Sinai. Today, I chose each one of you. I chose you. Today, I want to send you, so you will have to abandon your house, your home, to go meet the people. Like bread and wine are changed into the Body and Blood of Jesus, so you will be transformed. Go, I send you. Go in peace.’
“You will receive here peace and joy and you will go out to be a bread shared by others. This world is for those who know how to live the Word of God. The pilgrims who come to Medjugorje have come to transform their hearts. Accept the logic of belief and reject the logic of this world. With prayer you will stop the wars. Stop the war now! We can do it through prayer. She can do it with you. We can do it with our Christian logic, as believers.”
We write the above as an encouragement for you to pray for the visionaries. Pray for the love which they possess to be passed on to all and pray that it will spread. They want and need your prayers.
In the Love of Our Lady,
