“I am preparing you for the new times that you may be firm in faith and persevering in prayer…”
What is required for the new time? Faith and perseverance, our response to Her messages.
Cross Mountain in Medjugorje, June 17, 2019 – The building of the Cross in Medjugorje was an act of faith. This act of faith, many decades before Our Lady came, helped bring about a new time for the village. Our Lady said on August 30, 1984: “Dear children, the cross was also in God’s plan when you built it.”
Our Lady desires to bring us into a new time. What is required for this new time? Medjugorje visionary Ivan tells more about our part to play:
I hope that all of us are going to respond to the call of Our Lady, that we are going to accept Her messages, and that all of us are going to become the co-creators of a new and better world, a world which is worthy of the children of God. We are those who put the seeds into the soil. I hope that your arrival here [in Medjugorje] is the beginning of your spiritual renewal. And then when you go back to your homes, you are going to continue with this spiritual renewal with your families, with your children. I hope that this seed which you have planted here is going to bear good fruit later on, and that you are going to have hundreds of fruits. This time, in which we live, it is the time of responsibility. Let us accept with responsibility the messages of Our Lady.
Our acceptance of Our Lady’s messages with responsibility is required for this new time. Our response in faith is necessary, and to persevere in spiritual renewal. Be sure not to miss the upcoming Novena for Faith which begins on July 25, part of the Seven Novenas prayed each year for the Reconciling of Ourselves, Our Families and Our Nation back to God. The meditation for the novena, written by a Friend of Medjugorje, contains a very powerful example of faith. To get the Novena prayers, visit here.
