A Special Plan of God

A Special Plan of God

The following is an excerpt from a letter written by Pope John Paul II to his friends, Marek and Sophia Skwarnicki:

“Dear Marek and Sophia, I thank you Sophia for everything concerning Medjugorje. I, too, go there every day as a pilgrim in my prayers: I unite in my prayers with all those who pray there or receive a calling for prayer from there. Today we have understood this call better. I rejoice that our time does not lack people of prayer and apostles… John Paul II.”

Marek’s comments:

“All that the Pope writes here about Medjugorje is of great value. It does not concern the long-term controversies regarding the authenticity of apparitions. For the Catholic Church, only one revelation is certain—the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. After all, the Pope participates in the faith of God’s people, as the Highest Priest of the Church, so he joins the poor people of Medjugorje through prayers, having become convinced about a special plan of God in that very place regarding a growing devotion to the Blessed Mother. Because the main concern in the Medjugorje messages was the Mother’s warning about upcoming confusion and war, the Pope in 1992, while the Balkans were still at war, writes, ‘Today we have understood this call better. I rejoice that our time does not lack people of prayer and apostles…’”
