Life is Not Global

Life is Not Global

Our Lady in Medjugorje is showing us the importance of the individual.

May 18, 2016 A.D.

Our Lady of Medjugorje said on May 2, 2016:

“…my children, do not forget; each of you is a unique world before the Heavenly Father…”


A pilgrim and his son in Medjugorje

A pilgrim and his son in Medjugorje. Two seemingly insignificant individuals in a crowd of thousands, but, equally important to the rest, and individually important to Our Lady.

A Friend of Medjugorje wrote in Twenty Years of Apparitions, a timely and prophetic writing about Our Lady, and how She has come among us to change the course of history, tells of how wrong there is a wrong mentality concerning the individual in today’s world:

“Life is not global; life is individual. Too much emphasis today is about the Global, the Global company, the Global planet, Globalization. With Globalization we become hopeless, small, and the individual is insignificant. It is easy to say, “Why should I change. I can do nothing. Sure IBM or Dupont can do it, they are global.” None of these things inspire one to change. We can’t relate to the charities of a generous company, but we could to an individual such as Saint Francis. We can say, “I can relate to his good example. I am inspired to imitate one of his virtues.” By comparison, who could imitate a Catholic hospital as an individual — it is impossible. Our Lady is showing us the importance of the individual.

“June, 1981

“I invite you. I need you. I chose you. You are important.”

“But how can I change the world?” we respond. It is by changing you, your little world — first your life. Each life is dear to Our Lady.

“March 28, 1985

“Each individual is dear to my heart.”

“It is the individual who will save the world through God’s grace.”1

Continue to pray and spread the important May 3 writing by a Friend of Medjugorje titled, The Evening World News, and help others to be inspired and inflamed to change the world through their individual lives.

  1. To Mike below, Our Lady calls everyone to serve Her plans. That service is in whatever state of life we are in, to live that to perfection. God Bless!

  2. Please pray for me, I am struggling with what I feel is a strong calling to serve and have for a long time. I don’t know what it means so I am starting a novena today Mike
