We cannot give to others, that which we do not have ourselves.
A panoramic view of the village of Medjugorje, with Cross Mountain, dominating the background. How many pilgrims have walked these paths and prayed in these fields, receiving the peace of God Himself?
Our Lady came to Medjugorje and called all Her children to the way of holiness. Our Lady said on May 25, 2006:
Seeking holiness brings peace. Only then, after receiveing God’s peace can we speak about holiness and peace. A Friend of Medjugorje says:
“…Before we start to speak about the path of holiness, we have to realize that a holy person or a saint is one who has achieved peace in his heart, which means one has achieved a high degree of harmony between himself and God. Peace – harmony – is a gift from God; only God can give it…”1
Continuing Our Lady’s message of May 25, 2006:
When we receive the peace of God after praying much and cleansing our hearts, then as Our Lady’s apostles, we can, by our witness of having peace in our own hearts, spread this peace to the whole world.
