The Moon Shot

The Moon Shot

Much has been made of Amazon CEO’s Jeff Bezos going to the edge of space. hearing this reminded us of something a Friend of Medjugorje wrote about the most important event happening in the world today and the news, even Catholic news barely gives it a nod. This writing from a Friend of Medjugorje was titled, The Moon Shot, and it puts Medjugorje into the global perspective, that one day, everyone on the earth will want to know about it. – Caritas of Birmingham

The Moon Shot

by a Friend of Medjugorje


A  few days ago, Marija was asked anew about a question to Our Lady that is well known from the first days of the apparitions. Marija asked if there was life on other planets. Marija relayed that Our Lady said, “It is not time for you to know this now.” It leaves a wonderful mystery into the unknown, and that Our Lady did not say, no or yes.


Fifty years ago, July 20, 1969, the first men walked on the moon. At that time, the mindset of the “moon shot” was viewed by the whole world as the greatest achievement in the history of man. While the tech world, robotics, artificial intelligence, etc., seems today to overshadow the lunar landing, it is not the case. The tech world came from space exploration and is greater in advancement than the advancements we have today. Those of us who witnessed it understood what a giant step it was.


Following U.S. President John F. Kennedy’s challenge in 1962, to put a man on the moon and return him safely to earth before the decade was out, the nation went into high gear, using the efforts of thousands of people to meet that challenge. President Kennedy himself said of going to the moon:


“Many years ago, the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, ‘Because it is there.’


“Well, space is there, and we’re going to climb it, and the moon and the planets are there, and new hopes for knowledge and peace are there. And therefore, as we set sail, we ask God’s blessing on the most hazardous and dangerous and greatest adventure on which man has ever embarked.”


Seven years later, on July 20, 1969, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin transported aboard the Apollo 11 spacecraft, made the first steps on the moon. The world was fixated with the event. For those who watched it live, we possessed a range of thoughts of when Armstrong’s foot stepped on the surface. Many wondered if the world would end, or something disastrous like germs coming back to earth and wiping out the human race, etc. We just didn’t know, except that we were going into the unknown. When we landed and stepped out successfully, even the U.S.’s great competitor in space, the Russians, were of good cheer with congratulations, confirming the words written on the lunar plaque, which was left behind on the moon:


“Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon July 1969, A.D. We came in peace for all mankind.”


The moon landing united an entire world. It was, in fact an incredible feat.


So today, we ask the following questions:


1. Has there ever been an event since then, greater than the first moon landing of 1969?


2. Is there a greater achievement of mankind, which surpasses all the scientific knowledge that got us to the moon and back again?


3. Is there a greater event which unites the world?


The answers are:

1. Yes.

2. Yes.

3. Yes.


1. Yes. Medjugorje, the supernatural event where the Holy Virgin Mary comes from the “heavens” crowned with twelve “stars” to save the “world”.


2. Yes. The gathering of the masses of mankind, taught with Heavenly messages, in order to be used by Heaven in a plan to save the world.


3. Yes. The separation of those seeking to be Godly, away from the godless, and being united together regardless of race, rank, religion, capabilities, etc., in order to achieve a common purpose of the salvation of mankind.


We have stated many times in the 33 years of our mission, that Our Lady’s apparitions in Medjugorje are the greatest event since the death of the last apostle. While some scoffed at this, even within the Medjugorje world, now, more are following our lead, understanding it and stating what we have known as fact, confirmed with Our Lady’s words of April 4, 1985:


“Today is the day when I wished to stop giving the messages because some individuals did not accept me. The parish has been moved and I wish to keep on giving you messages as it has never been in history from the beginning of the world…”


Some individuals did not accept Our Lady, and Our Lady does not say that they did accept Her, but that enough were moved to allow Our Lady to do what She came to do. Our Lady is here to save the world. She said on March 25, 2006:


“Courage, little children! I decided to lead you on the way of holiness…”


Medjugorje was Our Lady’s decision, granted by God’s yes, but it would be up to Her to make it successful. It was Her “earth shot”. The challenges to meet such a great spiritual historic event for one who was purely human, now with the Divine, yet still, it is beyond Herself to achieve an earth landing daily. Our Lady could not land alone. Our Lady “landing” on earth is not possible with the efforts of just thousands, but rather millions involved, for the plan to unite billions for the salvation of mankind. A decision of Our Lady, allowed by God to do something which is not possible because mankind did not want salvation. Mankind rejected the salvation offered by Jesus on the Cross. Yet Our Lady decided, and those who are now alive on the earth are living with the decision of Our Lady. We have no choice to be involved. We will either be with the plan, or against the plan, but either way, we are involved. Our Lady is in charge, Her decision now determining the course of action that we, mortal men, must take; a mountain we must climb, a moon, a star we must reach for. Why? Because it is there. And we know the need of the renewal of man on planet earth is vital to save it because Our Lady said of the plan:


January 25, 1987

“God has chosen each one of you, in order to use you in a great plan for the salvation of mankind…”


Ivan said the earth would have destroyed itself if Our Lady had not come. We have often told the story about the early days of the apparitions when Medjugorje visionary, Mirjana, asked Our Lady for a sign. Our Lady responded by smiling. After the apparition, Mirjana noticed that her watch turned backwards. After several years of prayer, it was discerned, given to the heart, that this was a sign that Our Lady obtained from God time for mankind to convert. Our Lady asked, “God give me time.” “No Mother, they have no more time.” “Then back up time.” And God gave it to Her.


We are living on borrowed time. Our time is not our own. Our Lady confirms this by her words:


January 25, 1997

“This time is my time…”


Time would not have existed except for God created a niche in “time” itself for Her, which God created by reversing time, to give a period not to stall and stop time, but literally back up time’s clock of an appointment with judgement. And on August 25, 1993, Our Lady says:


“Read Sacred Scripture, live it, and pray to understand the signs of the time. This is a special time…”


Moon rises over Apparition Mountain in Medjugorje

This “moon shot”, taken during Our Lady’s “earth shot”, shows the moon coming up behind a cloudy sky above Apparition Mountain in Medjugorje. In many writings, a Friend of Medjugorje has said that Our Lady is like the moon, lighting up the dark of night, reflecting the light of the sun, Her “Son.”


Our lives are not our own. While we have a free will to choose, we cannot choose to be loosed from the borrowed time we are in. Therefore, each will bear the consequences of what we do with the time we have left. Our Lady chose to take us on the most hazardous and dangerous and greatest adventure on which man has ever embarked. For that She tells us:


March 2, 2006

“Courage, little children!”


Our Lady will triumph. How? Through the efforts of all of Her children, taught by Her messages, and gathered together at just the right moment.


July 2, 2017

“…with the help of those of you who are humble, modest, filled with love, hidden and holy, my heart will triumph…”


Right now, we appear to be hidden. But we will be called to action, to the front lines of an event which will change the world. It is better to be on the winning side. Make a new commitment to Our Lady. Make a renewed effort to the plan. If you are not involved, join the plan. Why? Because it is there. Medjugorje will one day unite the entire world of those who are of good-will. And the whole world, purified and full of good-will, will one day understand that this “earth shot” of Our Lady is so big, that Armstrong’s, “That’s one small step for man. One giant leap for mankind,” is nothing in comparison to Her step on the earth, joining mankind, even though you may feel you are stepping out into the unknown, as we did with the moon shot. Our Lady said November 10, 1981:


“I will accompany you at every step…”


All in the future will be awed of those who lived in this wonderous moment that the Holy Virgin Mary, Queen of Peace, launched a period of peace for all men upon the earth.


July 2, 2019

“I… will still give you, evident signs of my motherly presence… that every child of mine may… live to see wondrous experiences…”


“See wondrous experiences” of which the world has no precedent. Not even Moses and wondrous miracles before Pharaoh Rameses II and the parting of the Red Sea! Hold on for the launching of events of Biblical proportions.

10 thoughts on “The Moon Shot”

  1. I was a parishioner at St. Joseph Church here in the city where a great many parishioners are from Notre Dame, just right next to South Bend. The priests denounce Medugore as of Satan. It is impossible to evangelize here (or get good medical intervention). St. Anthony of Padua, in our city, is 100 percent for Mary! Please pray for us as we do for you and the world!

  2. I read this “The Moon Shot” and it was a great comparison and evangelization and I agree with a Friend of Medjugorje. I was exited and humbled to part of the space program that God allowed man, with a lot of God’s grace, to have success. I was a lowly, humble junior industrial engineer. God was good to provide me with this employment. However, when you compare that to the apparitions of Our Lady, my very minor involvement in all of Caritas’ work in spreading Her messages, I am most blessed and honored to help Our Lady as a lowly and most humbled servant of God. The apparitions of Our Lady Queen of Peace is heavenly event so many souls can be saved. The Space program was exciting but is earthly and will go away. Our heavenly reward is eternal and we thank Our Lady for coming and for Caritas to stay the course in doing what she has requested. May the work of Caritas continue to be blessed and God The Father have mercy on the USA; that justice and truth prevail!!!

    1. Michael John Hebert

      There are those who believe, when Hezekiah had his miracle of the Sundial going back 10 degrees, this amounted to 40 minutes of our modern day, time.

      This would then, also be another instance, where the number 40 lines up, with 40 years of Medjugorje Apparitions, having a particular significance.

      In 2nd Kings, Hezekiah was given the choice of the Sundial moving either forward or back, he chose backwards, thinking it was harder than moving forward, but we all know, “Nothing is Hard for God.”

      Our Holy Mother’s, “Earth Shot,” will not fail, because We already have Faith in it, even though it has not come about yet from the Unseen.

      In Our Minds Eyes, We See & Must Continue To See This, Even If Our Senses Try To Betray Us From This, TRUTH.

      Our Lady has been Teaching Us, about the Efficacy of Prayer. We know this, because even She has told us, how important Our Prayers are for Her and we have seen their effect.

      FOM, has mentioned many times, over the Years, how Our Prayers, have earned a New Efficacy, for Our Lady.

      In like fashion, Our Lady wants us to experience an increase in efficacy, when we suspend our own disbelief.

      The coming Signs and Miracles are intended for a number of reasons, but for those whom remain close to God, through Our Lady, they are intended for Us to, “Lose Any Of Our Last Disbelief.”

      In Mark 9:24 of the Bible, there’s a passage where Jesus asks someone if they believe. The person replies, “I Do Believe, Help My Unbelief,”

      Don’t forget Jesus said in reply, “You unbelieving generation, . . . how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you?

      What God wants from Us, “Believers,” is for us to lose all of our Unbelief, believing that not only can God do something, but that, “He Will.”

      Sometimes it’s easier for us to seek help with Our, “Unbelief,” than it is for us to have an increase, in Our Belief.

      In this manner, within such a prayer, we show our humility, in not believing enough, to move those mountains, Our Lord mentioned, but as Our Lady’s Small Cohort, combining together even with our little faith, we’ve increased Her Efficacy, and lost some Unbelief.

      Our Lady’s Plan includes using some of those Prayers we’ve offered for Her Intentions , as a means to wipe away any disbelief we have, to fully believe in the Miracles Our Lady said She hopes, will be performed through our own faith, in Her Son.

      With Our Hearts as One, in Love for The Two Hearts of Jesus and Mary, even now,, we not only see miracles, but are already a part of them.

      Consider this: Everytime your actions result in a seed planted, which eventually leads to the Redemption of an Individual, You’ve become part of a Miracle, Celebrated by the Entirety of Heaven.

      You’ve gone after those many, “One Lost Sheep,” mentioned in the Bible. How Great Also Will Your Celebration Be, When You See Them In Heaven. Alleluia!, Alleluia!, Alleluia! Don’t Forget, Pray, Pray, Pray.

      1. I was a parishioner at St. Joseph Church here in the city where a great many parishioners are from Notre Dame, just right next to South Bend. The priests denounce Medugore as of Satan. It is impossible to evangelize here (or get good medical intervention). St. Anthony of Padua, in our city, is 100 percent for Mary! Please pray for us as we do for you and the world!

  3. Jacob saw a staircase in a dream, where the angels used it to ascend and descend from heaven. Does Our Lady, want to buy or build a physical means to remove ourselves from the earth, such as this dream of a “Stairway to Heaven”? Does she want this, along with Our Lord’s, Spiritual means to our heavenly home? Would this be analogous, to the Ark, built by Noah, to ride out the flood? My understanding is there are 3 different types of “heavens”, written about in the Bible. The way you mention the moon, planet and stars, along with the possibility of other life, do you believe it’s Our Lady’s hope that we someday have a means to travel those great distances in the future, or simply be above the earth during the warned about “Great Upheaval”? Some believe a great deception is coming, where aliens will deceive the world through religion and falsehoods, using their advanced science to present fake miracles, perceived as magic, not science, because people won’t understand the tech
