Our Lady of Medjugorje is here to teach us about the things that affect our everyday lives. She said on August 25, 1996:
A Friend of Medjugorje told a story once on Radio WAVE about how the Caritas Community children grow up with prayer in their lives, especially the daily Rosary we pray in the Field, rain or shine, everyday of the year. Everything stops for our daily Rosary. Works stops, school lets out, everyone in the Community comes together to pray in honor of Our Lady’s apparition in Medjugorje. Even when we travel, we stop for the daily Rosary. A Friend of Medjugorje tells us:
“Once, one of the Caritas Community families was on retreat. They stopped for the daily Rosary and were praying on the beach looking out at the water, while people walked by. While they were praying, their daughter, one of the Community kids asked them why everyone was just walking around. She asked, ‘Why aren’t they stopping for Rosary?’ She thought the whole world stopped for the daily Rosary everyday!”
The world may view this as strange. But, when the messages of Our Lady become a way of life, everything else that is godlessness is not normal. Our Lady is creating the new normal that in the future will be the norm; everything else worldly will be looked upon as strange. The question remains, which side will you be on? Normal or Strange?
