Our Lady’s words are not an exaggeration. When Our Lady tells us She knows us as a mother, rest assured this is the truth.
Medjugorje April 30, 2019 – Two pilgrims in Medjugorje pray at the statue in the Caritas Mission House. This couple, together, offers their hearts to Our Lady by reaching out to touch Her.
Our Lady knows us like a mother knows her children. Yet, this is not the example that many have today. A Friend of Medjugorje writes:
“The world is in a great void of “mother.” The mother in the family is redefined in the world of modernism and few understand the ancient role. Today’s mother is shaped and formed and molded by modernism. A prevailing mentality is: real motherhood is antiquated, something of another time, not relevant today. It is not the “in” thing. As a result, the whole world is falling apart…”1
This is the reason why Our Lady is appearing today, to fill the void of “mother”. Medjugorje is a witness to, and also an indictment against today’s concept of mother. When one encounters Our Lady, when one reaches out to touch Her, one touches the “mother”. The Caritas Community, along with the Caritas pilgrimage group will be present tomorrow for Our Lady’s apparition to Mirjana, at the Blue Cross on Apparition Mountain. All of you and your intentions will be remembered in prayer before the Holy Mother. Be in prayer for Our Lady’s words given tomorrow, May 2, through Mirjana.
