This sentence, as a Friend of Medjugorje has stated many times before, tells more than what is read at first glance.
St. James Church, seen from Cross Mountain in Medjugorje in the early morning hours. So much has changed in Medjugorje since Our Lady first appeared. This once rural village is now lit up with lights at night, much like the way a city grows. Is it for the better? That is yet to be seen.
The village of Medjugorje has indeed changed much physically, as the plans of man evolve. Yet the plans of Our Lady have not changed. A Friend of Medjugorje writes about the importance of coming in union with God’s plan through Medjugorje:
Our Lady’s words of May 25, 2019, “God permitted me, out of His mercy, to be with you,” are ‘shake us from our slumber’ words, that Our Lady is trying to tell us something that we cannot understand superficially. All must realize that God has sent Our Lady, with a plan to save the world. All plans, as a Friend of Medjugorje has written before, are secondary to this plan. We must abandon our human interests, human plans for that plan that God has allowed out of mercy, whether that be in our personal lives, our places of employment, our church, even the village of Medjugorje itself. Be thoughtful of this more in the next days.
