Sing Hallelujah in the Storm
Sing Hallelujah in the Storm [Podcast] – A Friend of Medjugorje speaks about storms, protection, and he shares an amazing prophetic description of Our Lady.
Today is Thursday, March 25, 2021, and this is Radio WAVE.
This is Radio WAVE with your host, a Friend of Medjugorje.
[A FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]
As many of you may know, in the United States, we had tornadoes hit us today. We had a flood of phone calls asking if we were okay. It came within two miles of our place, and we had some operations on highway 280, and it was only just a few blocks from that. There were houses a few miles away that were completely destroyed. We don’t know if there’s injuries at this point, or if somebody even lost their life. But we knew this was going to happen yesterday. Our Lady comes to us to speak to us for tomorrow and for the present.
So, in the present, yesterday, we went to the Field, knowing this storm was going to come, and we said a special prayer to protect this Valley, the Pine Tree in the Field, and the property, the Tabernacle, this whole Valley. That prayer we said is in the Pieta Prayer Book. The messages are laid out in the same way, in anticipation of what’s happening in regards to the direction of world is going. We know we have a dangerous future, things that will be frightful.
In our prayer group, yesterday, in the evening, we had the confidence to ask Our Lady to put a seal over this Valley and our operations. I’m going to ask Joan to read the prayer, and you need to receive this prayer, because we’re convinced this prayer protected us. Why? satan wants to get as close to this place as he can and to destroy it. It’s just logic. It’s just common sense. We have to prayer. he’s always attacking, and he came very, very close. Actually, I was on highway 280 three minutes ahead of it before it crossed the highway. One of our other community members was stuck in traffic a mile away. He saw it. I saw it coming to my right, and I was headed back to Caritas as quick as possible. Nothing, at this point, was damaged, but at this moment that we’re broadcasting, there’s a stronger and bigger tornado taking place right now, and it’s coming toward this direction. It’s interesting that this tornado is on the other side of the mountains. Both the mountains to the Valley parallel each other. Yesterday, when we did our prayer, basically, we faced the mountain to the north. Then, we made a quarter turn facing down the Valley as we prayed the prayer, and then, we made another quarter turn to face the next mountain to pray, and the fourth turn we made was down the other side of the Valley. So, we did everything 360. And there’s not question that we were protected because there’s no question satan wants to destroy this place.
So, listen to this prayer, and you keep your Pieta prayer book, and you do this before a storm. We were fortunate enough to do it yesterday and then pray a whole Rosary afterwards.
“The Prayer or Blessing Against Storms is of great importance
“Jesus Christ, a King of Glory, has come in Peace.† God became [a] man,† and the Word was made flesh.† Christ was born of a Virgin. † Christ suffered.† Christ was crucified.† Christ died.† Christ rose from the dead.† Christ ascended into Heaven.† Christ conquers.† Christ reigns.† Christ orders.† May Christ protect us from all storms and lightning.† Christ went through their midst in Peace,† and the Word was made flesh.† Christ is with us with Mary.† Flee you enemy spirits because the Lion of the Generation of Juda, the Root, David, has won.† Holy God!† Holy Immortal God!† Have Mercy on us. Amen!”
As you pray the prayer, you’re continuously pausing between each sentence making a Sign of the Cross as you’re praying this prayer. And there are nineteen times within this prayer that you are making the Sign of the Cross.
And though a Friend of Medjugorje didn’t mention this, last week, on March 17th, we actually did this prayer with our pilgrim group who came for a Caritas of Birmingham pilgrimage, because there were storms and hail and tornadoes threatened a week ago. So, we did this with the whole group in the Field of Apparitions, and it was actually a very powerful experience for all of them as they told us later in their testimonies.

We know Our Lady told us that God speaks to us in many different ways, nature, through man. These storms can be relayed to our lives and all the trials that we’ve got to go through. In today’s message, Our Lady alludes to this. So, nothing’s by chance that we’re experiencing this earlier at 1:30 in the afternoon, and now, at this moment, another one coming. It speaks very clearly with the spiritual life, but also, in the physical realm, to be always asking God to protect us.
My grandmother, a Sicilian Italian, they would always go out before storms and throw salt over their shoulder to protect their house, on the corner of their properties. That’s not voodoo. That’s real stuff. Our Lady expects us to do that. You keep blessed salt and do the same. Our Lady’s message today speaks to us in a special way about the things that are coming to us.
Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s March 25, 2021 message to the world:
“Dear children! Also today I am with you to tell you: Little children, who prays does not fear the future and does not lose hope. You are chosen to carry joy and peace, because you are mine. I have come here with the name ‘Queen of Peace’ because the devil wants peacelessness and war, he wants to fill your heart with fear of the future – but the future is God’s. That is why, be humble and pray, and surrender everything into the hands of the Most High Who created you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
[A FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]
Why does Our Lady say certain things if there’s not a reason for Her to say it? For example, why say, “…who prays does not fear…”? What is She saying right there? What is there to fear? What does She have to tell us that for? Do we just say, “Okay. We’re just not going to be in fear”? That doesn’t make sense. So,
“…who prays does not fear the future and does not lose hope…”
So, see, Our Lady’s saying, “Don’t fear.”
But my point in bringing this up, why does She say that? That’s a broad statement. So, there’s something in the future that’s going to come that people are going to be fearful about. A lot of people see these things and say, “Oh, Our Lady’s taking care of everything. Everything’s going to be okay.” It’s not the case. It is going to be fearful, and it is going to be in the future, something coming. And it is going to question your ability to keep hope.
So, when these times come to us, and it’s going to be difficult, and it’s going to be fearful, and people are going to lose hope, She says for you that are “…chosen to carry joy and peace, because you are mine…” That’s a separation. We belong to Her, and those who are chosen are to be with Her. And there’s going to be another side. How do we know from this message, in the future? Because She says,
“…the devil wants peacelessness and war…”
So, that means war is probable. So,
“…he wants to fill your heart with fear of the future…”
But, in the end, everything changes around, because God’s got the ability to drop an atomic bomb, literally. He did in Hiroshima. That ended the war. “God wouldn’t do that.” Oh, really? That changed everything around. And Our Lady says, “The future belongs to God.” Our Lady’s giving us a picture of the future by what She’s saying, by not to have any fear.
So, what are the qualities we have to have? She says after the statement about the future belongs to God, She says,
“…That is why, be humble…”
That’s one thing She’s asking and telling you to do.
The second thing. And the third thing,
“…and surrender everything into the hands of the Most High…”
And again, people misunderstand these things. You’re not supposed to be sitting in your easy chair and just praying, and God’s going to take care of everything. He does it through man. Our Lady’s calling you, yes, to surrender to God. Don’t surrender to the devil. Whoever’s victorious makes you surrender. So, this surrender has to do with warfare, and on every level, we are to surrender, the way we’re living, the direction we’re going, to adapt a way Our Lady shows through the message that speaks of a way of life.
This message give us a lot of things to ask questions about. On January 2, 2017, Our Lady says,
“…My children, do not waste time posing questions to which you never receive an answer…”
We want to know answers to everything on the earth, from science to the schools, to why, or spouses, whoever. We’re endlessly seeking answers.
Our Lady continues,
“…At the end of your journey on earth, the Heavenly Father will give them to you…”
It’s amazing. We’re going to have every answered question when we enter into Heaven. And then, Our Lady continues and says,
“…Always know that God knows everything; God sees, God loves…”
We got, today, the storm. We went to God the day before, yesterday, for what was going to happen in the future. This is a perfect example of what we’re supposed to be doing. And we all believe here, God took care of us today. We surrender it to Him. We can’t stop the tornadoes. But God can divert them. He can change things, if we put everything into His hands.
There’s people tonight that’s sad. We don’t know who may be hurt or even died, those who lost their houses. What is Our Lady asking us to do? To be joy and carry that peace, that everything is God’s hands.
“…surrender everything into the hands of the Most High…”
We are now, in this country, and in the family, and in the heart, with strong storms that are relentless to us constantly. The battles are endless. Many people are in the middle of the in-between, in the middle of questioning over every worry, every fear. And what are you supposed to do at that point? Be joy? Yes, that’s what Our Lady said. She said, “Remain in peace because you’re Mine.”
And She said She’s the Queen of Peace. Our Lady rarely says that. December 25, 1988, Our Lady said, in the Bedroom,
“…I have come as your Mother, Queen of Peace…”
I’ve always been awed that She said that here, giving Her title. That means something. She didn’t have to say that here. She wanted us to know that on this side of the world, that we understand that.
And so, between the questions, the fear, even now, those people should have a joy in their heart, because we have to surrender everything. And what are you supposed to do? Sing hallelujah. That’s the only way to keep your joy and have peace. And that’s how your heart gets free because too hard becomes so easy. You’ll find peace in surrendering and letting go.
Right now, I feel a little overwhelmed. Right now, I could really use some help. Right now I don’t feel like it is well with my soul. I’ve tried to find a way around the mess. I’ve prayed in faith that the night would end. Right here when I just can’t understand, I’ll lift my hands.
Hallelujah, when the storm is relentless. Hallelujah, when the battle is endless. In the middle of the in-between, in the middle of the questioning, over every worry, every fear, hallelujah, even here. Hallelujah, even here.
Somehow, I bow and my heart gets free. Too far, too hard becomes so easy. I find peace here in surrendering, in letting go.
Hallelujah, when the storm is relentless. Hallelujah, when the battle is endless. In the middle of the in-between, in the middle of the questioning, over every worry, every fear, hallelujah, even here. Hallelujah, even here. Hallelujah, even here, yeah, yeah.
Sometimes nothing left to give, oh, becomes the sweetest offering. And sometimes choosing just to sing is the thing that changes everything.
Hallelujah, when the storm is relentless. Hallelujah, when the battle is endless. In the middle of the in-between, in the middle of the questioning, over every worry, every fear, hallelujah, even here. Hallelujah, even here. Hallelujah, even here.
Hallelujah, even here.

Our Lady gave us the answers. She gave us this song that describes everything in Her message on the 25th, in real time, with the storms we’re in the midst, in regard to nature, but paralleling that also, in the heart, in our nation, and in the world. Our Lady’s talking to us. She’s got something to say, and She does give you answers.
Our Lady wants us to sanctify everything, ourselves, our work, our tools, our children, our parents, our institutions, our nation. Everything is to be turned over to God. So, when She says, “…surrender everything…” God possesses that.
Our Lady has many plans. We’ve talked about this before, but what I want to repeat to you is applicable to this message today.
The Sufi mystic, Hasan, a Muslim, said that Our Lady was preparing those who She chose from their birth. There’s people that’s been born—you’re maybe one of them—that Our Lady, from your birth, has chosen you to use you for a great plan, and you’ve got cognition and formation to do that, before you even know about Medjugorje. Hasan says, quote,
“Mary will lead the battle against satan…”
So you understand how profound this is, this was stated in 1980 and recorded. And Our Lady came in 1981. So, there’s no guessing here that this is prophetic. Hasan says, quote,
“Mary will lead the battle against satan and cooperating with the Archangel Michael and will lead mankind back to God. Mary needs many soldiers for the battle. Each of them will be attracted to the place just in time…”
Are you one of them? I can tell you, everybody in the Community here believes this, that they were born for this.
“…Each one is chosen for a little task, a detail which, when all the details are combined, will form a beautiful pattern. These soldiers, most of them women, will be drawn from all over the world. From their earliest childhood, they will have been prepared for their special little task without them having been aware of it.”
This is a profound moment and a statement, because we see exactly this is what’s happening.
So, that’s prophetic, but there’s many other things that’s prophetic that’s happened in history. We see Our Lady, in history, described and written about in different forms of words that now shows up as prophetic. In other words, we may have seen something long ago, written, it was relevant to that time, decades ago, but it is really for a future time. Medjugorje is now; history is Her prophecy. There is a barrier separating Heaven and earth, and did you know, it’s being trespassed every day when Our Lady comes to the earth? These Medjugorje visionaries experience something that is explained decades ago.
St. Louis de Montfort talked of these people that were going to be chosen by Our Lady. He says, quote,
“Yet, they will have silver wings of the dove, enabling them to go wherever the Holy Spirit calls them, with a resolve to seek the glory of God and the salvation of souls.”
The visionaries see Our Lady both in the light of the sun and clouds. You might can say, sun-split clouds.
The Medjugorje visionaries have done hundreds of things that you cannot even dream of. When they go in the apparitions, the visionaries listen to Our Lady’s sweet words with the impact of a shouting wind. What do they see? They see Our Lady’s color blue, so beautiful, so much so that you could say one’s delirious watching the burning blue that Our Lady wears.
These visionaries see something at such a height—and She’s told us She comes in the wind—they’re windswept. Grace may be difficult for you and me. It’s easy for the Medjugorje visionaries to receive grace. You can call it easy grace because they see Grace.
In Revelation, the Woman flew on the wings of an eagle. When Our Lady becomes silent in the apparition, the visionaries hear the sound of silence lift their minds, as if the silence is heard. These visionaries are unlike any visionaries in history. They trod the high, untrespassed sanctity of space of Heaven. It is there, in the apparition that they move from earth and trespass and touch the face of God.
All this was written in 1941 by a nineteen-year-old. He was killed shortly after that. And it’s a famous writing. While he was inspired to write this to explain what he was doing in the military, he describes Our Lady and everything surrounding Her, from the silver rings to the sun-split clouds, to the shouting wind, the burning blue, windswept, easy grace, silent lifting mind, untrespassed sanctity of space, and touch the face of God.
High Flight, by John Gillespie Magee Jr.
“Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds – and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of—wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence hovering there
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless holes of air
Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
I’ve topped the windswept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or even eagle flew
And, while with silent, lifting mind, I’ve trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space
Put out my hand and touched the face of God”

If Our Lady was preparing people from their birth, don’t think things from the past don’t speak to Her prophetically. And today, as I was thinking about Our Lady’s message, it came to me that we love to watch T.V., or we used to do as kids, and watch it go off at night. The last thing they played before it went black was this poem. I decided to look at it because of silver wings, and Louis de Montfort…And I can’t believe what it said because these are the words the visionaries can tell you in describing Our Lady.
Everything is gravitating toward Our Lady. Everything is coming toward the Secrets. Everybody, when they become aware of the Secrets are also going to be drawn to Our Lady. And what this young man did, in nineteen years of age writing something like this, was beyond what he thought. And I can see him in Heaven with the words he says, quote,
“And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings”
“Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of [the] earth”
This is the visionaries. This is their verbiage, if they could describe Our Lady and what they experience in their apparitions.
This message, March 25, 2021, says far more than you can imagine, because She’s talking about the future, the battles, the storms, all the questioning we have, all the fear, all the worry. But in the end, the future belongs to God. But She needs us, as soldiers, as Louis de Montfort said, to help the fulfillment of what Our Lady’s asking us to do, no small task, even though he said there was. Our Lady now tells us, “You can’t comprehend the greatness of your role.” Do you want to be part of it? Enter into it. Carry your storms with joy.
We wish you Our Lady. We love you. Good night.
