Social Distancing

Social Distancing

by a Friend of Medjugorje

March 26, 2020 A.D.

Our Lady said through Mirjana on March 18, 2020:

“I see beautiful and sad things.”

Our Lady’s words, “beautiful and sad,” should give everyone a pause to evaluate on which side of the message they are on. Beautiful or sad? We are “seeing” rise up in our world a new term that has become a part of everyone’s vocabulary now: social distancing. People are adjusting themselves to this, keeping 6 feet away from each other, closing restaurants, or doing take out only, encouraging people to work from home, etc. It has become a necessity to stop the spread of coronavirus. However, we would say that social distancing is not something new. In reality, it is something which was already happening spiritually, and it is now manifesting physically.

Electronics, cell phones and “social” media, etc. has made it so that people have not grown closer together, but further apart. Many live in a fake world, an alter-world, where they pretend, act even, to be happy when they are not.

We have said for years that when man does not want God, God gives man what he wants. This current crisis is what we as a culture have wanted and asked for, through our actions of separating from one another. How many families can attest to have kids who never look up from their cell phone at the family gathered around the table, if the family even gathers around the table at all? Our Lady of Medjugorje said on November 2, 2011:

“Dear children, the Father has not left you to yourselves. Immeasurable is His love, the love that is bringing me to you, to help you to come to know Him, so that, through my Son, all of you can call Him ‘Father’ with the fullness of heart; that you can be one people in God’s family…”

As a people, we are not one, in most people’s mentalities. Our Lady made that statement, one people, rolling it into Her messages to give you a truth. “One people in God’s family.”

But, is social distancing because of the coronavirus a grace from God? Will the physical inconvenience of social distancing make people wake up to what many been doing all along and cause them to strive to come together? Or will the present crisis make people more dependent on electronics? Our Lady said on February 25, 2004:

“Little children, be those who draw souls to God and not those who distance them…”

God is in every man, woman and child. To distance ourselves from others, is to distance ourselves from God. Our Lady said through Mirjana on November 2, 2013:

“The Heavenly Father is in each person. He loves each person and calls each person by his name. Therefore, my children, through prayer hearken to the will of the Heavenly Father. Converse with Him. Have a personal relationship with the Father which will deepen even more your relationship as a community of my children– of my apostles…”

Modern electronics gives to us the appearance of a personal relationship, but in reality, there is physically something between people, a gadget, a little god that forces people to practice social distancing. And though there are those who will argue that social media and cellphones are essential in a crisis such as we are in, again, it should be seen that what was happening spiritually is now manifesting physically, by God giving way to what we have wanted. We are not arguing about the usefulness of these things. Gold is useful as a mineral, as a way to adorn temples for God. But making a golden calf and worshiping it, would bring about God’s wrath.

Our Lady said through Ivan on October 4, 2019:

“Leave the passing things of this world, which distance you from the love of my Son…”

We have before us, an opportunity to be more prepared for events which will drastically change the world. These coming events are connected to the secrets of Medjugorje. They will happen. This time around is only a test. Our Lady said on February 2, 2020:

“My children, fold your hands and look at the Cross in silence… fold your hands, look at the Cross…”

This time of separation has caused many to have to be by themselves, alone. Thoughts that cellphones have brought us closer together is a lie. Yes, it gives an appearance, but it is a mirage. This is proven by looking at any restaurant. Everyone is separate, looking at their phones while sitting together. Our Lady’s words from February 2, are being brought into reality, as a prophecy, that we are being forced to be silent before God. How will we come out the other side of this current crisis? Will things change? Will everything go back to “normal?” Will the lesson of social distancing be learned? Next time, will it still be a trial run like it is now? Our Lady’s words through Mirjana on November 2, 2012, tell us how to look at this situation:

“I am praying that you may discern everything around you according to God’s truth and to strongly resist everything that wants to distance you from my Son…”

This is a time for discernment of “everything around us,” whatever that “everything” might be. What man wants, is what man will get. But if one wants God and His ways, one will see manifest in their life, the things of God. Your heart will begin to have an aversion to certain things, and you will no longer rely on things that distance from God and neighbor. Again, some may argue that these things have to be used for work and are essential in a time like this. We are not making the point against that. What we are showing is that what the world is experiencing, is what the world is living; the spiritual realm of darkness, manifests into the physical realm of darkness on earth.

What is being said here is strong. It may be rejected outright. We are not telling others how to live, but merely showing that reliance on the systems of man will one day be challenged by God. God will not be on the losing side. Use this opportunity of social distancing to begin to take small steps towards a new and simpler way of life. The first thing you will notice is the ability to pray better. Years ago, we were out of town working on a project which required us to research a lot of current news. We noticed something. Our prayer was different. Not obviously noticeable, but noticeable enough to know something was wrong. What had changed? Our connection to the news. Once we finished that project, our prayer immediately changed.

The second thing you will notice is that you will worry less. There was the old saying, “what you don’t know can’t hurt you.” Practically, this saying is not correct. Lots of things can hurt you. But in spirit it is correct. Adam and Eve did not know, and it did not hurt them. It hurt them, when they knew, when their “eyes were opened.” Much of our worry is self-inflicted, caused by voices which we allow to worry us. When one is dependent on God, disconnected from the voices of the world, worry goes away.

Right now, to choose a different way to live is a choice, just like Our Lady said:

July 25, 1989

“Little children, I do not wish to force you; rather, freely give God your time, like children of God.”

Our Lady revealed a “secret” to us about being united. Her words of September 25, 1995 tell us of how God brings the world together. It is not by electronics, but by God’s presence:

“I invite you to fall in love with the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. Adore Him, little children, in your parishes and in this way you will be united with the ENTIRE WORLD.”

It is being in the presence of God that unites us, not being in the presence of an electronic god that comes between us. We pray that this time, a time of “social distancing” for the world, will be a time of drawing closer to God, to the Father, so that when we come out the other side, we will choose to forgo the things which separate us, and unite behind a loving Heavenly Father… and Mother.

  1. Really as this letter says, people do not want God. They do not need Jesus or either Mary. World’s so called utmost powerful nations with their invincible leaders, DID NOT want Jesus. So now our Extremely Powerful Jesus & Mary has allowed to implement what the world needs. Now the so called utmost powers have become helpless.Not a single scientist has been able to stop this cyclone of death. The world is receiving what they earnestly longed since WWII. The world ridicules Jesus, Our Beloved Mother Mary .. Poor idiotic leaders. They snubbed Fatima Messages. It’s a pathetic situation now. The world is going behind aethist Communists for their living. Poor fools

  2. Michael John Hebert

    Our Lady’s Prayer for the Sick: PRAYER FOR A SICK PERSON  O my God,  behold this sick person before You.  He has come to ask You what he wishes and what he considers as the most important thing for him. You, O my God, make these words enter into his heart: “What is important, is the health of his soul.” Lord, may Your will in everything  take place in his regard, if You want Him to be cured, let health be given to him;  but if Your will is something else,  let him continue to bear his cross.  I also pray to You for us, who intercede for him; purify our hearts, to make us worthy to convey Your holy Mercy. Protect him and relieve his pain. that Your holy will be done in him, that Your holy name be revealed through him. Help him to bear his cross with courage. 

  3. My husband recently retired and since the virus we are now home at 11:00 to unite ourselves to the community of Caritas praying in the Field. We don’t call that social distancing…we call that united as one body in prayer. It’s wonderful to know God and His Mother are connecting us in this way. Thank you Caritas. We love and miss you. Be well!

  4. What is being promoted out in the world is really “Anti-Social Distancing”. Hugs are the true “Social Distancing”. Let’s all shut off the MSM.
