The future is decided by the decisions we make today.
A man and his wife pray before Our Lady on Apparition Mountain in Medjugorje. This couple brought their family on a BVM Caritas Pilgrimage in July 2018, wanting their young children to experience Medjugorje. Families that experience prayer together can weather many storms of life. This is becoming more important as we head into an unknown future.
The decisions made today, determine the future of tomorrow. Our Lady continues in Her June 22, 2012, message from above:
A Friend of Medjugorje said in a Radio WAVE broadcast a few years ago, that Our Lady speaks to us, from the perspective of One who knows the future. Our Lady cannot tell us everything because we would not understand Her, or perhaps not acccept what She is trying to warn us about. But, She knows, and one must read Her words, with the knowledge that Our Lady knows what we do not.
Therefore, as we head into an unknown future, decide for prayer and a new way of life in your family. This time of the year, when families come closer together, is not a time to relax spiritually, but is a time to grow spiritually together, setting out into the future.

Many have asked us to feature again the special writing about how the Community of Caritas celebrates Halloween. This is a good time to start, in a small way, something concrete for your future. This writing here, about the Feast of Morta, details how a Friend of Medjugorje was inspired to celebrate Halloween in a different way from the world, and provides a blueprint on what anyone can do in their own family.
