For Immediate Release
July 31, 2019 A.D.
Our Lady of Medjugorje revealed in 1984, that She was celebrating Her 2000th birthday. Our Lady asked us to honor this day, by fasting three days in advance, going to confession and preparing in prayer. One can reason out, that the birthday of She, Who was full of grace, will result in filling with grace, those who prepare in prayer. A number of people have also called and asked about coming to Caritas for August 4 and 5th. There are directions which follow below. Following, are several spiritual ways that a Friend of Medjugorje has recommended that we prepare for Our Lady’s birthday.
The Marian Mysteries
The Community of Caritas will be praying the Marian Mysteries of the Rosary, in the Field of Apparitions on the evening of August 4, 2019, a day that a Friend of Medjugorje has named, Mary’s Eve. These Mysteries were written by a Friend of Medjugorje in 2005 for the first public celebration* of Our Lady’s birthday. The Marian Mysteries can be downloaded Free by clicking here…
The Sinless Day
An important book to read is, August 5, What Are You Doing for Her Birthday?, in which A Friend of Medjugorje writes about a special gift you can offer to Our Lady for Her birthday – a Sinless Day. A Friend of Medjugorje first offered this many years ago, and the Community of Caritas joined in union with him, in 1999. We have continued to offer this gift to Our Lady every August 5. To download the booklet, August 5, What Are You Doing for Her Birthday?, visit here…
The First Public Celebration of Our Lady’s Birthday
* Remember When It Rained, is a special production about a miracle that took place at Caritas, August 5, 2005, during the first public celebration of Our Lady’s birthday with thousands gathered in the presence of Our Lady’s apparition to Medjugorje visionary Marija. The 1 hour docu-drama is a must hear for every August 5 celebration. Learn more about Our Lady’s birthday, the importance of preparing for Her birthday, and Her Medjugorje apparitions. To listen to Remember When it Rained, or to download, visit here…
We will be united in prayer with all of Our Lady’s children throughout the world during these days, as well as with the Caritas Pilgrimage group now in Medjugorje.
