Our Lady’s plans, of which She tells us She has many, all depends on conversion. Our Lady is desperate in this utmost important message of which She calls:
April 25, 1983
“I will pray to my Son to spare you the punishment. Be converted without delay. You do not know the plans of God; you will not be able to know them. You will not know what God will send, nor what He will do. I ask you only to be converted. That is what I wish. Be converted! Be ready for everything, but be converted. That is part of conversion…”
It is incredible to read Our Lady’s messages and meditate on Her in light of who She is. She begs and pleads with us as a mother would desperately call to a toddler who is about to step out in traffic to stop and turn because she has not the time to reach him before it will be fatal. It’s hard to believe these emotions because She is in Heaven, yet Our Lady even surprisingly tells us She is anxious.
Our Lady also said in the same year:
One can see by Our Lady’s own words that our personal future will be affected by our conversion.
The pleas and anxiousness of Our Lady parallels that of the mother whose child is about to step in the traffic. The child knows not the danger, even though he sees the cars. Somehow we are in the same situation, and Our Lady is desperately calling us to turn our lives around, convert, start a new life, a new path.

Conversion, however, does not mean to live religiously with words. Rather than words, let it be your life which speaks.

Conversion is not something that happens once you discover Medjugorje or visit the village which is the spot of spiritual renewal of the world. No! That is the beginning of conversion. Conversion may have a great impact in a moment of your life, but it does not end with the profound quaking your soul may have experienced. It is a daily experience.
February 25, 1993
While we may experience a divine grace, a renewal of spirit, we cannot claim conversion, as many have, without carrying out the giving of ourselves to God.
July 25, 1994
Through the years, we have seen many beautiful conversions. They were as flowers, radiating out such beauty that we were left breathless. Yet we have seen many wilt, brown, and die – their conversions die, and not even become what they were before they flowered. It is a sad testimony of those who did not understand conversion, did not want to change further, did not want to persevere.
The grace of conversion brings an impassioned faith. Prayer is easy, resisting temptation is easy, living the messages is easy, but when the honeymoon is over, and God wishes to test your conversion, many cool off and fall away.
Conversion never ends. It lasts your entire lifetime.
July 17, 1989
Conversion is a continuous process that must be fed by receiving the life-giving Sacraments, reading the Bible, Our Lady’s messages, and the lives of the Saints, and putting it into practice. The Sacraments will give us Divine grace and feed our soul. The Bible will give us understanding in the heart. Our Lady’s messages will enlighten the mind of the Word the Bible puts in our hearts. The lives of the saints will show us how to use all these treasures and implement them into our daily lives as their examples of saintly living reveals.
Our Lady told Marija receive the Sacraments, read the Bible every day, read the messages every day, read about the lives of the saints. To do so will nourish conversion.
We must realize conversion of the heart is a gift, a special present, given through prayer

Conversion is as delicate as a flower. It must be nourished and watered. Many who followed Jesus turned from Him, never believing they would. We have seen the same in the Medjugorje movement. We encourage you to convert. We invite you to go deeper into the spiritual life, to strike out all the world’s distractions, and to commit to daily conversion
