Caritas Mission House
“How privileged we are to have Our Lady as a spiritual director in our age. Who in two thousand years of history has had such an honor? It places you in the position to receive the same privileges the apostles had two thousand years ago, walking with the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen from Nazareth. Everything else pales to insignificance once we understand this. Run toward Our Lady’s wishes. We are being given a profound gift directly from God. Once this ‘event’ is history, it will be viewed by those in the future as profoundly mystical, a wonder in the same category as Noah and the Flood, Moses with the Pharoah, and Jesus and His Apostles. For it is Our Lady’s time, a time predicted four hundred years ago by St. Louis de Montfort, to raise apostles up for the latter days…” (From “Treasure Chest” by a Friend of Medjugorje)
Many pilgrims who have wandered into the Mission House commented that they felt a deep peace when they entered through our doors. We tell them it’s the peace from Our Lady that She gave on the occasions when Marija has brought Our Lady in the apparitions to the Mission House, so that we might have Our Lady’s blessing upon our mission work in leading hearts closer to Her heart and the Heart of Her Son.
There have been many hearts that were laid bare in the Mission House. Sensing that this was a safe place to share some of their hurt and pain, where they could receive solid direction that would lead to healing, where they could come back again and again with their questions and there would always be time for them—this has led many to a deeper conversion and a stronger response to Our Lady’s call to live holiness. Once in an apparition in the Mission House when only the Caritas community was present with Marija, Our Lady told the community, “I want you to be Jesus’ joy.” The Message Place, Our Lady’s place, because it’s where you find joy and peace.
