Work, Nothing Comes Free

Work, Nothing Comes Free

August 27, 2019 A.D.

Our Lady said just a few days ago, on August 25, 2019, through Marija:

“Little children, God will bless your effort a hundred fold…”

In order to receive anything in return, one has to put forth effort.

Grapes ready to be harvested in Medjugorje, August 19, 2019

Medjugorje August 19, 2019 – After months of hard work in the fields, the grapes put forth their fruits, ready to be harvested.

Nothing comes free. In order to receive anything in return, one has to put forth effort. If one wants to receive a beautiful life, one must work for it. A Friend of Medjugorje explains more:

The privilege of knowing Our Lady’s messages, the beautiful gift and privilege of a call to bring the community into being did not come without great difficulties, and a lot of work through blood, sweat and tears, crosses, hardships, persecution, hatred and slanders towards us, all of which contained the ingredients that made the early Christians who they were formed and molded to be. With our lives we testify to joy by the birthing of the physical manifestation of Our Lady’s words:

May 25, 1992

“…begin anew to pray, until prayer becomes a joy for you…”

A life of prayer, arduous prayer, a solid commitment to prayer cannot but lead to joy. Our life of sacrifice, our life of living for others and for their salvation has brought purpose and meaning that enriches our lives. This results in joy. We understand who we are. Yes, we are sinners, but sinners who have been rescued from a broken society and its destructive ways—ways which are as a millstone around one’s neck before being thrown into the sea. Our Lady has rescued us, shown us a way, the way for a new future that is coming for all the world.

For the Caritas Community, the life comes at a cost. It costs a Friend of Medjugorje, it costs those who live here. But, the fruits are one hundred fold. Invest by working for a new way to live. The fruit will manifest one hundred fold. We encourage you to visit Caritas in Alabama. Spend a weekend looking into the window of the future, of how God has taken ordinary people and manifested an extraordinary life.
