Broadcasting across the world, this is Radio WAVE with a Friend of Medjugorje.

 

[COC]

Good evening and welcome to Radio WAVE.

 

We aired a broadcast for you on the evening of the 25th. That was actually an encounter with a Friend of Medjugorje that was given before Our Lady’s June 25th message was given through Marija.

 

This special broadcast tonight is after the message has been given. So, this was given the morning after June 25, 2022, a Friend of Medjugorje speaking to the BVM Caritas Pilgrimage group which is there in Medjugorje.

 

Those who are in Medjugorje right now are experiencing a very powerful pilgrimage, as was those who were here at Caritas on pilgrimage here. And there is information, also, on mej.com for the remainder of the pilgrimages to Medjugorje and also the rest of the pilgrimages here to Caritas for those who are feeling called to go on a pilgrimage this year.

 

So, this is the morning fresh after the June 25th message was given.

 

And here is a Friend of Medjugorje.

 

[THEME MUSIC]

[FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]

Of course, you heard the message yesterday, and you’re in some big history because Our Lady doesn’t always say things in real time. It always is applicable to it. But what She said with this message was incredible with what happened on the 24th.

 

I was walking back to the back. I drove Marija down to the apparition last night, yesterday evening, and then she went into the chapel. After that, I went to the back of the church. There’s thousands of people, of course, out there, you saw. And so, somebody came up to me and grabbed me by the shoulder.

 

And I said, “Milka!” And there’s Marija’s sister. And I hadn’t seen her for two years because of the pandemic.

 

And so, we were just chatting about what she’s been doing the last two years. And we’re like, we are family. She grew up while I was coming here in ’86.

 

So, she said, “Happy anniversary!”

 

I said, “No, happy anniversary to you yesterday.” Because she saw Our Lady the first time and the only time. The next day, of course, you know the story. She had to stay back, and then Marija was chosen.

 

And I’ve always thought that the reason that happened, that because they were so close in their age and everything, that Our Lady let that happen for her to see what Marija sees.

 

So, I said, “What do you think about yesterday? That’s your anniversary.”

 

And she said, “I’ve been thinking about it.”

 

And I said, “How sharp is it for you?”

 

She said, “Clear as day.”

 

“Our Lady burned into me,” basically, she said that.

 

So, we talked for a little while.

 

So, I have a lot of history here. Our Lady’s put me in positions for what She wants me to do, but you’re here, and you’re hearing history.

 

We know for fifty years, we’ve had abortion, and we know on June 24th, Our Lady appeared to Milka. And Milka thought it was a baby lamb She was holding. But it was a Baby, and it was Baby Jesus.

 

So, what she saw in 1981, June 24th, Our Lady comes and gives us a message yesterday, on the day that She appeared with a Baby in the beginning. Nothing’s by chance. So, it’s really awesome. This is historical.

 

So, the Supreme Court changes this on the day of the first apparition, but Our Lady wants to celebrate it on the 25th. So, there was a reason for that.

 

So, the message, She says,

 

“Dear children I rejoice with you and thank you for every sacrifice and prayer…”

 

All these years.

 

“…which you have offered for my intentions. Little children, do not forget that you are important in my plan[s] of salvation [for] mankind…”

 

Our Lady gave a message to Vicka, and She said, “Do you want to sacrifice your life for the salvation of the world?” (Undated) And Our Lady said that today and spoke to you about that.

 

Do you want to do that?

 

So, Our Lady poses a question to you, and we have a lot of questions. We always do. We don’t always get the answers. We don’t know why God does this and God does that.

 

But you’re put in this position. You’re called to be here.  You’re supposed to be carrying the messages to everybody. And now, you have history of something so big, something so huge, that Heaven tells us right there at that moment, “I was there.”

 

The older people here say, “The Kennedy Moment.” We didn’t have assassinations going on before that. And it shocked the world. Even Russia, there were people crying on the streets, and London. They showed it on the T.V., because everybody loved Kennedy. And you know where you were. You know where you heard it.

 

You got history yesterday. You’re going to know where you are. And you’re going to tell your grandchildren.

 

I was just telling Faith, “This is history you’re looking at. You’ll be talking,” because everything goes away. You are the carriers of the messages. Our Lady literally said that. “…be…carriers of my messages…” (June 25, 2010)

 

“…do not forget that you are important in my plan [for the] salvation of mankind…”

 

You can accept it, or you can reject it.

 

There’s a lot of people that have questions about all kinds of things.

 

“Why did this happen?”

 

Why did I have a honeymoon with God, and then that left, and I walked away from Him?”

 

Our Lady said,

 

January 2, 2017

“…I am making myself known to you by these comings, by these words; I desire to witness to you my love and motherly care…”

 

And then She says,

“…My children, do not waste time posing questions to which you never receive an answer…”

 

There goes big things in your life and in what you’re reflecting on, and these questions will never be answered. And She says,

 

“…My children, do not waste time posing questions to which you never receive an answer. At the end of your journey on earth, the Heavenly Father will give them to you…”

 

So, Our Lady wants you to understand, She can’t make you understand everything. You have to just trust.

 

[SONG]

I’ve done things I’m not proud of today. I’ve been raised on them old dirt roads where the black top ends, learn to keep my head up high. I didn’t know until I left home, I can sing the words to my life song.

 

We’re not supposed to ask the Good Lord questions why. We’ll all find out in the end. Everything that happens has a purpose why. We don’t know. One day we’re all gonna know.

 

I’ve seen things I don’t wanna talk about. And I don’t know why I came home when others died. See it every day in my mind. And I can’t change the hands of time, but I can change the ways I live my life.

 

We’re not supposed to ask the Good Lord questions why. We’ll all find out in the end. Everything that happens has a purpose why. We don’t know. One day we’re all gonna know.

 

We’re gonna find them answers we’ve been searchin’ for. On that day, we’re gonna realize,

 

Everything that happens has a purpose why. We don’t know. But one day we’re all gonna know, questions why.

 

Oh, yeah.

 

Questions why.

 

Questions why.

 

[FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]

I had a thing I had been with Our Lady said back at our House when She was there at the apparitions, and She said something through Marija to me.

 

And so, I waited for Our Lady to give some more information. And so, I was always in prayer, asking this question to Our Lady. I was coming almost every month at that point.

 

So, I went to Marija several years after that, because I didn’t get the answer for what I wanted. And I told Marija,

 

“Ask Our Lady,”

 

And I won’t tell you the question. And you’re going to question me about that, but I ain’t telling you. [LAUGHTER]

 

So, anyway, I told Marija to ask Our Lady this, and most of the people, when she asked, even for Marija, even Marija’s husband, doesn’t get any answer.

 

So, She said to the answer to my question, She said:

 

“Pray.”

 

And that was it.

 

Well, I’ve been praying. So, I came back a few months later, or…This all lasted over a year. When I came back, I asked again a few months later. And Our Lady said:

 

“Pray.”

 

She just said, “Pray,” but I was asking more information what She said back in Birmingham.

 

So, another month, I came up—a couple months—and I said,

 

“Marija, ask Her again this question.”

 

And She said,

 

“Pray.”

 

So, I said, “Marija…” It bothered me, because that’s all She said. So, I’m at her house, and I’m bothered by that.

 

So, I wake up about three o’clock in the morning, and I walk outside in the back. Her house is, at that time, was at Apparition Hill. And it’s real dark. The stars are beautiful. And I walked out there, and I’m looking toward Apparition Hill, and I hear someone going,

 

“Psst! Psst!”

 

And I looked over…Marija’s sitting over there by the washing machine outside.

 

I said, “What are you doing?”

 

She said, “I’m praying. I couldn’t sleep.”

 

I said, “Me neither.”

 

She said, “Sit down.”

 

So, we finished a rosary. We walked into the house, 3:30 or whatever. So, we’re sitting at the table. And we’re talking, and our conversation’s about everything. And there’s a cake right there in-between us on the table. She’s on the other side of it. And so, we start eating some of the cake in the middle of the night.

 

And I said, “Marija!” I said, “It’s a fast day!”

 

She said, “Shh. Jesus is asleep.” [LAUGHTER]

 

So, there’s some beautiful things that Marija has a joy with her.

 

So, anyway, I talked, from that conversation, I said, “Marija, Our Lady has said three times just, ‘Pray,’ these questions.” So, I said,

 

“What do we need to do?”

 

She said, “We need to do a novena.”

 

And I didn’t like novenas because my mama did that, and she would take us on to Benediction on Wednesday, and all them women out there, just adoring Jesus. But what they were doing, after that Benediction, they would go down the basement of the church and play BINGO. They were praying for money. And some would smoke. Everybody smoked. I couldn’t stand being down there.

 

So, I didn’t like novenas and things like that. I wasn’t interested in it.

 

So, Marija says, “Do a novena for an answer for this question.”

 

I said, “What kind of novena should we do?”

 

She said, “Let’s go up and do all three mysteries,”

 

Back then, there was not four mysteries. It was just the three.

 

She said, “We’ll wake up before daybreak. We’ll go up Apparition Hill and do all three rosaries for nine days.”

 

So, her and I, personally, went up, every day, for nine days.

 

When we came back down, and then Marija asked after we finished the novena, and she asked the question in the apparition. Just me and her were together. And Marija says that Our Lady gave you an answer. And I thought this was what it was. She says,

 

“You pray.”

 

And that was it. [LAUGHTER] In other words, “Shut up about this…” [LAUGHTER] And I kind of knew that. She was just saying “pray.” That’s what She wants to do.

 

So, actually, I was at peace at that point.

 

But through prayer, I got enough where I got enough consolation. But the biggest thing that came out of it, I’m probably the first person on the earth that knows, 100%, novenas really work. [LAUGHTER]

 

And we do a lot of novenas at Caritas. A lot, because I witnessed this, that Our Lady didn’t want to tell me more than that. But the novena forced Her hands to do that.

 

So, novenas are important.

 

So, there’s a lot of beautiful experiences that Our Lady has had with these things.

 

So, we always have these questions for God, and it’s not something God wants you to know, for whatever the reasons may be, but it’s a reality Our Lady’s given these things, giving what we do to pass these things on to you. And these experiences with Our Lady are profound. And you think, “How could you ask the Virgin Mary a question and ask for different things,” and She answers the questions.

 

We’re still waiting on something at Caritas for Her for two things for Her to say it, because She said that it’s not the time yet. So, I don’t ask that question, and we know it’s going to happen. We just don’t know when.

 

So, there’s a lot of things happening where we see this,

 

“…My children, do not waste time posing questions to which you never receive [the] answer. At the end of your journey on earth, the Heavenly Father will give them to you…”

 

Ivanka had her apparition yesterday. She has it on the anniversary for the rest of her life. And Our Lady said to her yesterday,

 

“…pray, pray, pray.”

 

That’s for you. This was a public message for you.

 

So, a lot of times songs have a lot of meanings to you, and they can apply to you in different ways.

 

What I usually do, I didn’t do a lot of preparation for these talks. I just called last night and said, “Give me some songs for tomorrow.”

 

So, these songs speak to you differently, and they can say different things for your positions or where you are. One of you can interpret it one way and another.

 

So, we have people that go through the honeymoon with Jesus, with God the Father. And a lot of people come to Medjugorje and convert, and they start leaving God [INAUDIBLE] because He doesn’t do what they want Him to do. And they get angry. And so, it’s questions.

 

The name of this song is Why Do You Go? And it’s really about questions again.

 

[SONG]

Why do you leave me lonely? When you know how bad it’d be alone? Stuck in the past you told me that all I ever wanted was a home.

 

So why you do you leave? Where do you go? Would you just stay if I came home? We can go for a drive, figure it out, calm your fears and drown your doubt. But I gotta know, why do you go?

 

Why you leave me lonely? Even when I’m staring you right in the eyes. You are my one and only, and I’m leaving for the rest of my life.

 

So why you do you leave? Where do you go? Would you just stay if I came home? We can go for a drive, figure it out, calm your fears and drown your doubt. But I gotta know, why do you go?

 

Is there a way to write the ending? Am I too late to change your mind?

 

Why you do you leave? Where do you go? Would you just stay if I came home? We can go for a drive, figure it out, calm your fears and drown your doubt.

 

Why do you leave, and where do you go? Would you just stay if I came home? We can go for a drive. We’ll figure this out, calm your fears and drown your doubt. But I’ve gotta know, yeah I gotta know, why do you go?

 

Why do you go?

 

[FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]

I had an experience with Our Lady that I really needed to talk to Her in the way the visionaries did to Her. And for a long time, I wanted to go to Our Lady and just pour out my heart about, just like this song, “Where do You go?”
Sometimes you may wonder where Our Lady is. You’re praying for Her. You’re asking. You’re not getting the answers. And you pray and you pray. You do novenas. You don’t get an answer for it.

 

And I was heavy on the heart because I was going through a lot of persecution. You know some of the history of what we’ve gone through. We’ve gone through the washing machine many times. The more God uses you, the more difficult it is you’re going to have by satan.

 

And so, there was times there were efforts of people to close Caritas down and crush us, suing us, everything, all kind of crazy stuff. Six years of lawsuits.

 

We had to raise $1.8 million for attorneys. Never got to go to court. We won in the end. Zero. But the persecution was really, really severe. Half of my day for six years—I couldn’t write—was dealing with attorneys. They just sued us in California, Alabama, Virginia, just to break us.

 

The guy did it. He was a multi-millionaire. The reason he did that is because he came to Medjugorje with his wife, and he was an alcoholic. She got holy. He didn’t. They divorced. So, he said Medjugorje was a cult. He started with other Medjugorje centers. And they just shut down. We didn’t shut down because we had assets, and we fought it. It was real lessons.

 

So, anyway, I wanted to talk to Our Lady, because there was something I was ready to do. So, I came to Medjugorje by myself, no groups. And when I came, I really wanted to pour out my heart to Our Lady, and I went to Marija’s house—not where she is now, but the old house—and I go there, and nobody’s there. And she’s sick. I get there before the apparition.

 

So, it was only me and her there.

 

And I was glad about that, because it’s always nice just being by yourself, because I can touch Marija. Marija doesn’t know. She can’t feel me touching her. Sometimes, in the apparitions, I’ll just put my hand on her. So, you’re seeing her, but, give me something.

 

Anyway, She’s got a picture over her couch in her living room. We kneel down, and I’m to the right of her. Our Lady, She appears, and I just,

 

“Mary, I came here to pour my heart out for intercession from You. I want You to hear me. And I’m here, making this pilgrimage, just to appeal to You.”

 

So, we went through the apparition. I said, my say. She stayed there long enough for that. And then afterwards, Marija says,

 

“Our Lady did something strange.”

 

I said, “What did She do?”

 

“She was there, and She leaned over and did this.”

 

[PAUSE]

 

[FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]

I asked Marija, “What do you think that means?”

 

She said, “She was showing that She was listening to us.”

 

[PAUSE]

 

[FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]

I don’t think She gave it to me because I’m special. I think She gave me this to show and testify and witness to you, She will listen to you.

 

You have to listen to the heart, and She hears those of you who have left God, gone through conversion, upset with Him, He’s listening to you.

 

[SONG]

Listen to your heart when he’s calling for you. Listen to your heart. There’s nothing else you can do. I don’t know where you’re going, and I don’t know why, but listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye.

 

I know there’s something in the wake of your smile. I get a notion from the look in your eyes. You’ve built a love, but that love falls apart. Your little piece of Heaven turns too dark.

 

Listen to your heart when he’s calling for you. Listen to your heart, there’s nothing else you can do. I don’t know where you’re going, and I don’t know why, but listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye.

 

Sometimes you wonder if this fight is worthwhile. The precious moments are all lost in the tide. They’re swept away, and nothing is what it seems. The feeling of belonging to your dreams.

 

Listen to your heart when he’s calling for you. Listen to your heart, there’s nothing else you can do. I don’t know where you’re going, and I don’t know why, but listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye.

 

And there are voices that want to be heard. So much to mention, but you can’t find the words. The sense of magic, the beauty that’s been, when love was wilder than the wind.

 

Listen to your heart when he’s calling for you. Listen to your heart, there’s nothing else you can do. I don’t know where you’re going, and I don’t know why, but listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye.

 

[FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]

I drove Marija, me and her, down yesterday to the chapel, and we were just discussing things. You know, here’s the 41st anniversary. And I said,

 

“When do you think Our Lady’s going to leave us?”

 

She says, “She’s not going to leave us.”

 

But always she does this. [LAUGHTER] Because she knows, one day, it’s going to happen.

 

One of the visionaries, and maybe not even the visionaries, even, they’re going to be having apparitions the rest of their life, every day. I think Marija would be the prominent one for that.

 

And so, we’re counting our days. We know the situation in the world is getting worse. And you couldn’t even write this in a fiction thing. People, Orwell, they talked about him, what? 1984? The book? That’s accurate, but nothing compared to what we’re seeing right now.

 

And so, yesterday, with the rejoicing, she balanced that message, saying,

 

“…I am with you also…”

 

She’s going from positive—thanking. Now, She’s going, negative part of the message.

 

“…I am with you also in these days when satan is fighting for war and hatred…”

 

And that was said also on the consecration, March 25th, a few months ago, that, “…satan has been fighting for war…”

 

he’s not fighting a war. he’s fighting for war. he wants war in the United States. he wants war in the whole world.

 

“…I am with you also in these days when satan is fighting for war and hatred. Division is strong and evil is at work in man…”

 

And then She says something that we have to accept, because Her words, every letter, means something. And when She says, “never,” She’s talking about all the way back to the Garden of Eden.

 

“…Division is strong and evil is at work in man as never before…”

 

Revelation talks about the antichrist system, that God had to shorten it, because even the elect—the believers, in other words—would not be able to come through it. And for the sake of the elect, this is crushed.

 

You’re tracked if you’ve got a cell phone.

 

They know where you are, what you’re doing.

 

They just came out, recently, now that they’ve got the, Elon Musk has the little satellites, and they go back to data, if somebody was murdered in New York in a park, that they can find out whose cell phones were there, and if they find the body right there, they know and they can trace it back.

 

You say, “Well, that’s good.”

 

But what can they do that in a bad way?

 

Never could we even imagine something like that, that they know everything you do, what you were doing three years ago with your cell phone. They’re able to go and do this.

 

So, we’re in an incredible position, and thank God I’ve always had an aversion to cell phones. I’m progressive in that way, not liberal. I’m progressive in industry or in my business.

 

My business, before Medjugorje, I was going to get a two-way radio. They said that this new thing’s out. There’s only two in Birmingham. They just started this called the “cell phone.” And they explained it to me, and back then, it was $2,600, which is a lot of money. It’s probably $10 or $15,000 now. So, I bought that. You had the beepers. And you had the telephone, you had to screw it on your dashboard, and it still had a cord on it. But it was on cell.

 

And within three months, I had such an aversion to that. Now, this is pre-Medjugorje. There’s no Medjugorje at that time. I had an aversion to this thing. And I threw it away. $2,600 back then.

 

So, somehow, I already knew these things. I don’t know why.

 

There was an old lady named Ingrid. She is…Where is she from? She’s the one that interviewed with Hasan, the Muslim. Hasan, he was a Muslim. She’s been to Caritas. She lives somewhere in Europe. And she interviewed Hasan. He’s a Sufi Muslim. He told her that the Sufi Muslims have been praying for centuries for the Catholic Church because the Virgin Mary is underneath them, or with them, and that their prophecy—this is 1979, before the apparitions—and Hasan said that, “We know that the Virgin Mary is coming to the world to save it.” And he said several things about it, that the Virgin Mary is going to appear. “We have to pray for the Catholic Church for them to propagate this.”

 

And he said there were going to be people that would be born, from their birth, would be prepared for the Virgin Mary’s work. And I say that because, somehow, I had an aversion about cell phones, and I’ve been fighting. You know what I say about them, how wicked they are.

 

Hasan also said, the majority of it was going to be the people from their birth—being prepared from birth—was mostly women.

 

You see the things—you’re here—there’s things I see that I did and what I did and why I did it, that I thought I was just doing it because of the world. Our Lady prepared me for what I’m doing. You’re not here by chance.

 

And so, there’s things in your call, where you are, what you are, you can say yes, or you can say no to it.

 

So, you are important to this plan. Our Lady said that.

 

“…do not forget that you are important in my plan [for the] salvation [for] mankind…”

 

You cannot contemplate your role when you say “yes” to it, and it’s not always pleasant. It’s not easy to do.

 

When God told me, basically, He was confronting me, “Will you give up your business?”

 

Of course I would. But I’m not going to do that.

 

He said, “Well, you said you’d do anything for Me.”

 

And so, what happens, I had one of the worst points in my life was the back of the church, in the woods, after Confession, and I had a confrontation with God. And I said,

 

“I’ll keep the business. I’ll get a manager. It’s funding Caritas.” It wasn’t taking donations. I wanted to fund the whole thing.

 

And this thing went on for an hour or an hour and a half. It was horrible. It wasn’t fun. It wasn’t pleasant. Because, well, I loved my business. I loved my business. What was I going to do? I already had started Caritas, and I was not taking any donations. I didn’t want to.

 

So, I funded everything, got a big foundation for it. We had already gotten big. “You’re not going to go to hell if you say ‘no.’ I’m just…You said you’d do everything for Me.”

 

And I said, “Well, let me have something that I’ll turn this over to my kids.” That’s what I was doing it for.

 

“I’m asking you, will you give it up?”

 

And this kept going. I said,

 

“God, this could be the devil, because I won’t be able to fund Caritas.”

 

I had enough money to live on for a while.

 

So, I finally said…And I knew He was showing me, “You’re not going to go to hell if you say ‘no.’ So, just tell me what you will do. You said you’d do everything for Me.”

 

And I did do that I said, “God, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for You.”

 

At the end of the torture, I said,

 

“Okay, God. I’m going to say ‘yes,’ but this may be the devil. I’m not going to lift one finger to make this happen. You’ve got to make it happen.”

 

As soon as I said that “yes,” all the torture went, and a divine peace came over me. And it was incredible.

 

And so, I went home, told my wife. I said, “I’m closing the business.”

 

She was by the stove. I’m over there in the kitchen, and she said, “What?”

 

I said, “I’m closing the business.”

 

And she looked at me. She said, “You’re crazy. You’re going to close your business?”

 

I said, “Yes.”

 

She said, “Why?”

 

I said, “Because God wants me to do it, and I’m going to do that.”

 

And if I said “no,” I wasn’t going to hell, like I just told you. That was clear to me. It was just what God was doing. God got jobs for all my employees. I had, like, 26 to 30 employees. I shut everything down.

 

And in three months…

 

…And this would have never happened if I said “no.”

 

…Three months later, the Virgin Mary is appearing in our Bedroom.

 

It took all our energy, all our time, to let thousands and thousands of people to come from all over the place, even flying in from Russia, South America, all the states. For miles, cars were parked. They just parked in the middle of the road. The Protestant white people didn’t like this, because they had to go around the mountain to get back to their houses. It was like Fatima.

 

So, that “yes” could have been a “no,” and we wouldn’t be doing what we’re doing right now.

 

So, there’s sometimes it’s hard to say “yes” to God, and it’s a difficult He’s called for something. But I’ll still reflect on that, if I had said “no,” I would never have Our Lady. We would never have what’s happened at Caritas.

 

We got another group just like you at Caritas right now doing just exactly what we’re doing now. And people, actually, that’s been on it…

 

Who’s been on a pilgrimage at Caritas since we started that?

 

You can give testimonies about that. We have people say they got more there than here on their trips because of distractions. We’re organic. We’re like this, on the whole days that you do it.

 

So, when God asks you to do “yes,” it’s for a big reason, and you’re going to be confronted with things, and you have to look at that and see what you’re supposed to do.

 

And it’s not a sin not to do it. But you will never know what you could have had.

 

I shudder about how, what happened in that field in the woods over there, that if I had said “no,” there’s a lot a lot of people would not be converted now.

 

So, you don’t have to be important. You don’t have to be in a big position. God can use you and will use you.

 

And finally—the name of the next song is called Finally.

 

Our Lady was so happy every day of the apparitions. We were waiting for Her to cry, we thought, because of the United States. Every day, Marija was shocked. Every day, we got messages. Every day, people increased in their numbers. Our Lady had to have an outlet that She couldn’t say the things She was doing here because they were stopping the messages, a lot of things I won’t tell you. And She knew that I’m not going to keep quiet.

 

We have this book, fifty times we’ve printed it. There’s no book like it in the world. There’s history of what’s happened here and different messages that would not have survived.

 

And so, Our Lady had to get another voice, another place out to say what She couldn’t say here.

 

There’s some dirty things that happened here. They’ve tried to stop messages here. Why? Because every time a message comes up, it’s more for the Vatican to look at, and so, this complicates its approval.

 

I don’t care about approval about Medjugorje. It’s sensus fidelium. The people approve it. Medjugorje is approved by the people. It’s worldwide. So we don’t need that.

 

But it’s also kept those people that’s in the Church that would do this, just like the third secret of Fatima, that would never be out. It didn’t get out for forty years. And they were supposed to give it.

 

And so, I know, and I’m privy to this, that there was very, very strong efforts to stop even the 25th message, years ago and my influence also by releasing it.

 

If you saw, last night at the Mission House, nobody gives anything out. The rectory doesn’t give out the message. They put it on a stupid computer. The only place in this village is right here. We’re going toward a million of those purple cards, and it’s a joy giving that out.

 

A bunch of Croatian people came in last night up till midnight grabbing books. They couldn’t believe they were getting books for free.

 

Did they talk to you about it? What did they say? Turn around and come right here. Speak in here. [LAUGHTER]

 

Don’t get too close [LAUGHTER]

 

[COC]

I’ve got a teacher’s voice.

 

Anyway, I explained to them who a Friend of Medjugorje was, explained to him that he loves the Croatian people, that Our Lady said that they were a chosen people and that he sees that they don’t understand that they’re chosen and why they’re chosen, and that this material is to help them understand their importance, that Our Lady said that, “…I chose you. You are important [to Me].” (June, 1981)

 

And so, they were in tears, and other ones were like, I mean, they left with three or four bags full of material. Couldn’t believe it. They got one, and then they said, “Oh, for my sister.”

 

And then another one was like, she’d take one, and I just started giving her…

 

[FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]

Wait, stop, stop, stop…[LAUGHTER] Which book was it?

 

[COC]

How to Change Your Husband [LAUGHTER]

 

So, yeah. It was very moving. It was very exciting. And there were many people who were, like, “Thank God you’re opened again. Thank God you’re opened again,” you know, because it’s been almost three years.

 

[COC]

So, we want to interrupt the broadcast here in this moment.

 

The night before a Friend of Medjugorje gave this talk to the pilgrims in Medjugorje, he was in the Caritas Mission House the evening of June 25th. So, the evening before this talk is being given is the evening that Our Lady gave the message.

 

When a Friend of Medjugorje opened the Caritas Mission House in 1996, he did not open up another place there in Medjugorje because he wanted to. He did it because Our Lady called him to do that and called him to bring our community there. He saw that it was very difficult to get the messages of Our Lady, which you heard him explain already.

 

And very quickly, the Caritas Mission House became the place where everybody came to get Our Lady’s message.

 

We want to share with you just a little bit of audio for just a minute or so of what it sounded like in the Caritas Mission House the evening of June 25th.

 

So, there’s a number of youth on the group as well as some youth from the Community there. There’s Italian pilgrims, and there’s Spanish pilgrims, and there is Croatian pilgrims, Polish pilgrims, people from all different walks of life and nations who are there to get Our Lady’s message on the purple message cards.

 

These are message cards which a Friend of Medjugorje had designed when we first opened the Caritas Mission House in Medjugorje many years ago. The quality is like you would find on a Hallmark card. The cards themselves actually cost us a lot to produce. There’s been well over half a million of these cards that have been distributed free of charge to people all over the world.

 

All across the world, there are these purple cards, that a Friend of Medjugorje designed with Our Lady’s messages on them, in almost every nation of the world.

 

So, here is just a little audio for you to hear what it sounded like as people came in to get the message.

 

[AMBIENT CLIP FROM CARITAS MISSION HOUSE]

[COC]

And so, that was just a little bit of audio from the evening of June 25, 2022. A Friend of Medjugorje refers to this as the joy of spreading Our Lady’s messages. There really is something electric that happens when people see that you’re handing out the message, and then they tell the person next to them, and then it just spreads through the whole crowd. And then people who had no idea what our Mission House is are coming in and getting more material.

 

And so, we just wanted to share this audio with you. Actually, a Friend of Medjugorje had walked downstairs and heard it and ran up and got the recorder and came down and said that it was a very beautiful experience to be there and hear this.

 

And so, ending the broadcast tonight, we’re going to go back to a Friend of Medjugorje speaking to our pilgrimage group.

 

So, here, again, is a Friend of Medjugorje.

 

[THEME MUSIC]

[FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]

Our Lady wants you to know that She believes in you.

 

The problem most of the time is you don’t believe in yourself.

 

Our Lady has an important plan for everybody plans for what you’re supposed to do. You say, “It’s just prayer,” or whatever it may be. But no matter how many times you’ve come to Medjugorje, how long you’ve been involved with Medjugorje, the final thing is,

 

She believes in you,

 

And She wants you to understand that She’s proud of you.

 

And that’s what She said, “…thank you…” last night.

 

It’s hard to believe you can please Our Lady, that you win your battles. She’s just a Mother, and She is proud of Her children.

 

[SONG]

This is all I ever wanted, all I ever thought I’d be. It’s the only place I truly feel as though I can be me. But the way I arrived, it was overnight. I’ve been on my worst behavior. I’ve been on my worst behavior.

 

If only I had been like this, now I can hold my heart in a fist, and all the voices leave. I can finally put it on my sleeve. Oh, if only they’d really seen it, maybe they would finally believe me when I say I’ve won, and my father gets to see his son that he can feel proud of. He can feel proud of. He’s proud of me.

 

This is all I ever wanted, all I ever thought I’d be. But the way that I behaved could have seen quite the contrary.
I felt all the lives, they’re out of sight. I’ve been on my worst behavior. I’ve been on my worst behavior.

 

If only I had been like this. Now I can hold my heart in a fist, and all the voices leave. I can finally put it on my sleeve. Oh, if only they’d really seen it, maybe they would finally believe me when I say I’ve won, and my mother gets to see her son that she can feel proud of. She can feel proud of. She’s proud of me.

 

She’s proud of me.

 

They’re proud of me.

 

They’re proud of me. (Proud of me)

 

They’re proud of me.

 

She’s proud of me.

 

She’s proud of,

 

She’s proud of,

 

They’re proud of,

 

They’re proud of,

 

They’re proud of me.

 

They’re proud of me.

 

They’re proud of me.

 

She’s proud of,

 

They’re proud of,

 

If only I had been like this. Now I can hold my heart in a fist. And all the voices leave. I can finally put it on my sleeve. Oh, if only they’d really seen it, then maybe they would finally believe me when I say I’ve won, and my family gets to see why, that they can feel proud of, oh.

 

They can feel proud of,

 

They can feel proud of,

 

They’re proud of me.

 

[FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]

…wants to be proud of you. We all know we’ll have bad behavior, and we’ll think, “How can She do that?” But She’s always ready to use you for this great plan for the salvation of the world.

 

When you’re at your kitchen sink washing dishes, or out there doing something propagating the messages. She uses you where you are and who you are.

 

In the Name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit, amen.

 

Mary, we ask this apparition tonight for a special blessing for this whole group, for these lands, for the oasis. We seek you to be our Mother more than ever, especially in these dark times.

 

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee. Blessed art Thou among women, and blessed is the Fruit of Thy Womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death, amen.

 

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee. Blessed art Thou among women, and blessed is the Fruit of Thy Womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death, amen.

 

Our Lady Queen of Peace and Reconciliation,

 

[PILGRIMS]

Pray for us.

 

[FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, amen.
