Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s February 2, 2011 Message
Through Mirjana Soldo Given on the Day for Non-Believers
“Dear children, you are gathering around me, you are seeking your way, you are seeking, you are seeking the truth but are forgetting what is the most important, you are forgetting to pray properly. Your lips pronounce countless words, but your spirit does not feel anything. Wandering in darkness, you even imagine God Himself according to yourselves, and not such as He really is in His love. Dear children, proper prayer comes from the depth of your heart, from your suffering, from your joy, from your seeking the forgiveness of sins. This is the way to come to know the right God, and by that also yourselves, because you are created according to Him. Prayer will bring you to the fulfillment of my desire, of my mission here with you, to the unity of God’s family. Thank you.”
Mirjana was not in Medjugorje for the apparition today. She relayed that Our Lady blessed everyone present, thanked them and called us to pray for priests.
Are You Changing?
By A Friend of Medjugorje
While you may not be hearing much about Medjugorje, it grows more important each day, as the world’s ways become more unimportant. Hollywood comedian Ben Stein, for years, has written a biweekly column called “Monday Night at Morton’s” (a famous chain of steakhouses known and frequented by famous people and movie stars). Ben Stein is a conservative Jew, very strong in supporting Christians and our religion. He has recently written his last column of “Monday Night at Morton’s,” a column he believed would never end. He tells why.
“It gives me a shiver to write (the last column). It worked well for a long time, but gradually, my changing as a person and the world’s changing have over taken it.” Stein continues, “I no longer think Hollywood stars are terribly important. (They are) no longer my ideal of a shining star we should all look up to.”
Stein’s disillusionment with what he thought and believed at one time has now changed. Our Lady is coming into the world to do just that – to change ‘mentalities’, to illuminate what is real, what is truth.

“…live my messages so that light may illuminate your hearts and fill your hearts…”
Our Lady wants us not to follow, not to imitate, not to be swayed by what is ‘in’ whether we are talking about fashions or the latest “got to get it.” Our Lady has something to say about this false glitter produced by people, ‘the stars’ or other Oscar De la Renta’s.

“Dear children, I have come to you with open arms, to take you all into my embrace, under my mantle. I cannot do this while your heart is filled with false glitters and false idols. Cleanse your heart and allow my angels to begin to sing in it! Then I will take you under my mantle and give you my Son, the true peace and happiness. Do not wait my children. Thank you.”
Ben Stein, like many on the earth, whether they know it or not, are benefiting from Our Lady’s presence each day. Her benediction for the world each day illuminates souls of good will to not be part of the world’s system, even though they may be unaware or have no knowledge of the Virgin Mary. Stein, in the grace of illumination, wrote in his last column:
“I am no longer comfortable being part of the system that has such poor values, and I do not want to perpetuate those values by pretending that who is eating at Mortan’s is a big ‘subject.’”
Stein goes on to tell what a real star is.
“A real star, the kind who haunts my memory night and day, is the U.S. Soldier in Baghdad, who saw a little girl playing with a piece of unexploded ordinance on a street near where he was guarding a street. He pushed her aside and threw himself on it just as it exploded…He left a family desolate in California and a little girl alive in Baghdad.”
The grace Our Lady brings to the world everyday in Her benediction, at the moment of the apparition is working to chip away at errors in the hearts of every good-willed man on earth. Stein’s confession of what he realized is important and the ‘star’ qualities one should reach for, is an illumination of what Our Lady wants us to be. Stein states:
“I came to realize that life lived to help others is the only one that matters. This is my highest and best use as a man. Years ago, I realized I could never be as great an actor as Olivier, or comic as Steve Martin…But I could be a devoted father to my son, husband to my wife, and above all, a good son to the parents who have done so much for me. This came to be my main task in life. I cared for and paid attention to them in their declining years. I stayed with my father as he got sick, went into extremis and then into a coma, and then entered immortality, with my sister and me reading him Psalms. I came to realize that life lived to help others is the only one that matters and that is my duty, in return for the lavish life God has devolved upon me, to help others He has placed in my path. This is my highest and best use as man.”
Our Lady’s grace given to the world today is prevalent everywhere, even for those without the realization of Her intercession before God in this time to save the world. As was stated, Medjugorje is becoming more important everyday as the world’s ways are becoming more unimportant daily. As Stein wrote, he could no longer stomach writing about the stars visiting Morton’s. His response, in answer to Our Lady’s call that he heard in his heart without recognizing Her as the source, is to live the highest duty to help others.

Just after the apparition on her birthday last year, March 18, 2010, while Mirjana is turning to leave, she stops to greet a young man in a wheelchair. His face expresses both surprise and awe, and one can imagine him thinking the same thing Elizabeth thought when Mary came to her after the angel announced his glad tidings: “Who am I that the Mother of my Lord should come to me?”
The message received by Mirjana on April 2, 2010 is just ink on paper. There is only one way that we can experience the message as Mirjana does each second of the month, or Marija does on the 25th of each month—and that is through prayer. In prayer the words are lifted off the page and planted in the hearts of those who are opened to the grace of Our Lady. It is then that these words become alive have the power to transform your life.
Mothers have carried their babies to the ends of the earth for millennia in search of God and His blessing. Innately they know that to have God’s protection and blessing is worth any sacrifice to obtain for their little creatures. Amidst thousands of pilgrims attending Mirjana’s apparition, this mother had come in the middle of the night with her baby to get close to Mirjana for her March 18, 2010 apparition.
Mirjana, on her birthday, March 18, 2010—silent…still…waiting.
A man looks towards the sun and smiles, feeling the warmth of its rays. Around him there are cries of joy while many around and with him, see the sun dancing just after Mirjana’s apparition on March 18, 2010, pointing, exclaiming, crying, looking with awe, taking pictures. many experience joy in knowing God is manifesting Himself physically to those gathered. For many, in seeing the sun dance, they receive a grace for their souls to dance.
If you were to walk a little further down this street you would come to Medjugorje visionary Mirjana’s house. It is evening time, the night before her second of the month apparition. She will go to sleep (if she goes to sleep) knowing in the morning she will have the grace to see Our Lady one more time. What day is more anticipated then the days she will see Our Lady? Christmas? A Wedding? A child’s birthday? Can any earthly joy fill Mirjana’s heart after having the grace of the apparitions? Like this empty street, so much of life’s existence must be empty for the visionaries, after they have looked into the eyes of Heaven and tasted of its fullness.
Just around the corner from the above street, it is now morning and there is so much congestion of taxis, buses and pilgrims that one can move only at a snail’s pace. The world comes to Medjugorje, and has been coming for 30 years. It is amazing to think about this road, remembering the footsteps of a 16-year-old Mirjana and a 15-year-old Ivanka who walked along it 30 years ago, and because they did, tens of millions have followed in their footsteps.
Mirjana stares into the face of Truth and of Love. Our Lady completely reflects the Truth of who God is. To stand before Our Lady, in Her reality, is to have nothing hidden of who you are. This is reflected on Mirjana’s face in her apparition of September 2, 2010. Everything of who she is humbly before Our Lady. As Medjugorje visionary Jakov once said many years ago, “Our Lady knows what is going on even in my big toe.”

Nice to be reminded of the 5th Stone esp outside Lent. Like Fr Tony I too have struggled with fasting though there was a time some years ago after my visit to Medjugorje that I fasted 2 weekly… And it did me good in my health too. Somehow I gradually slipped out of weekly fasting so reading this was a good wake up call. Thanks and God bless.
