Our Lady’s messages are profound. They are profound because for 2,000 years She has been the silent witness, the one who has remained in the background. Though we have already mentioned the below, it is appropriate in this time to revisit this, as Our Lady continues to call us to Her apostleship.

Saint James Church in Medjugorje

St. James Church in Medjugorje, where Our Lady gave weekly messages to form the parish into what She called a chosen people. Thirty-four years of apparitions and Our Lady is still appearing every day, giving messages now to the whole world to bring us closer and more deeply in love with Her Son Jesus.

Our Lady has been the silent witness, the one who has remained in the background. Yet, She has been the one who has the most “profound” things to say concerning Her Son, His teachings and His way because She lived it as no other being, including the angels, ever has. She, the Mother of the Word, is calling us back to the Word—both to Holy Scripture and to the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, Her Son, Jesus Christ.

“…Dear children, this is the reason for my presence among you for such a long time: to lead you on the path of Jesus…”

Our Lady’s messages, Her words, are the echo of the Word. If a word is spoken in a canyon, it is heard only once when it is pronounced, but that word echoes several times as it calls back from the canyon. Many think Our Lady’s words are repetitious. They are not. They are the echo of the Word. Foundation your life, your family upon the Word of God and Our Lady’s messages. Absorb the words, through concentrated reading and meditation, in order to live the profoundness of the messages. The Bible is the story of how God “chose” a people to follow Him, how He then loved these chosen ones, guided them, corrected, punished and then forgave them, and taught them to become witnesses and spread His way throughout the earth. Our Lady has come, in our time, to do the same thing. She has called us “chosen by God.”

July 30, 1987

“…pray for the plans of God to be fulfilled: first of all with you, then with this parish which God Himself has chosen. Dear children, to be chosen by God is really something great, but it is also a responsibility for you to pray more, for you, the chosen ones, to encourage others so you can be a light for people in darkness…”

She ends this message with the words already mentioned:

“…Light won’t reign in the world until people accept Jesus, until they live His words, which is the Word of the Gospel…”
