Our Lady’s September 2, 2019, message through Mirjana, She told us the words:

“…Apostles of my love, I am with you through the grace and the love of my Son…”

It is a grace that Our Lady is with us. On this day, we reflect on the reality of this grace.

The setting sun behind St James Church in Medjugorje

The rising sun behind St. James Church in Medjugorje, September 1, 2019. Our Lady said on September 25, 1998: “Little children, you seek signs and messages and do not see that, with every morning sunrise, God calls you to convert and to return to the way of truth and salvation…” – Our Lady is a sign given to us by God with every morning sunrise, another day of grace with Her, Who is full of grace.

Our Lady has told us that Her presence is a grace. On this day, September 12, 1998, visionary Jakov experienced just how great of a grace Our Lady’s apparitions were, when he saw Our Lady for his last daily apparition:

I grew up with Our Lady’s presence in my life, and Our Lady meant so very much to me, especially at the beginning of my life. I lost both of my parents when I was very young. Our Lady meant everything to me. On that day, when Our Lady told me that She was going to stop Her daily apparitions to me, I asked myself so many questions. “How am I going to be able to continue my life if I don’t get to see Her every day? What am I going to do at twenty to six when She used to appear before?” As I told you earlier, Our Lady told us to pray and you will get all of the answers. I did get my answer. I understood that it is not so important to see Our Lady physically, but it is most important to have Our Lady in our heart. To be able to see Her with the eyes of your heart, but I’m still anxious to get to Christmas time every year.

from The Greatest Souvenirs From Medjugorje are Our Lady’s Messages – October 27, 2008

Our Lady told Jakov on September 12, 1998, that She would appear to him on Christmas day, every year for the rest of his life. Though Our Lady’s last daily apparition to Jakov came as a surprise, being announced just one day previous, Jakov was prepared through having been with Our Lady for years. What of those who have not been prepared by years of being with Our Lady, praying to Her and placing Her in their hearts? Our Lady calls each of us to witness to Her presence in the world. A Friend of Medjugorje says that we should not be concerned whether people accept what we have to say, or whether they reject Medjugorje or Our Lady – even if they think we are crazy. When the future events happen in which they will then be in need, they will remember our words and seek us out. Until then, we continue to pray to Our Lady and place Her in our hearts.
