Official translation of Our Lady's Message of January 25th, 2016
"Dear children! Also today I am calling all of you to prayer. You cannot live without prayer, because prayer is a chain which brings you closer to God. Therefore, little children, in humility of heart return to God and to His commandments so that with all of your heart you are able to say: as it is in Heaven so may it be on earth. You, little children, are free in freedom to decide for God or against Him. See where Satan wants to pull you into sin and slavery. Therefore, little children, return to my heart so that I can lead you to my Son Jesus who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Thank you for having responded to my call."

Message of Our Lady through Mirjana on February 02, 2016 PDF Print E-mail
"Dear children, I have called you, and I am calling you anew to come to know my Son, to come to know the truth. I am with you and am praying for you to succeed. My children, you must pray much in order to have all the more love and patience, to know how to endure sacrifice and to be poor in spirit. Through the Holy Spirit, my Son is always with you. His Church is born in every heart that comes to know Him. Pray that you can come to know my Son; pray that your soul may be one with Him. That is the prayer and the love which draws others and makes you my apostles. I am looking at you with love, with a motherly love. I know you; I know your pain and sorrows, because I also suffered in silence. My faith gave me love and hope. I repeat, the Resurrection of my Son and my Assumption into Heaven is hope and love for you. Therefore, my children, pray to come to know the truth, to have firm faith which will lead your heart, and which will transform your pain and sufferings into love and hope. Thank you."
 
Cardinal hints at status change for Medjugorje PDF Print E-mail

(Source: Crownofstars)

Cardinal Vinko Puljic, head of the Church in Bosnia/Herzegovina, has hinted at possible changes to Medjugorje’s status as a sanctuary and place of pilgrimage.

In a Christmas interview with press agency Anadolu the Cardinal said Medjugorje is one of the largest confessionals, not only in the Balkans but also in Europe, and should be recognised in some way.

He also spoke about the long-awaited outcome on the status of Medjugorje and said that any decision on the sanctuary would be only a matter of administrative management and for probably the parish, and would not mean an early decision on the claimed apparitions and messages associated with the phenomenon. “In terms of the visions and messages, the Church will continue its study and not go that fast. The Church is not in a hurry,” the Cardinal explained.

He added that he was not worried about the attitude of the Holy Father nor of the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith, but that it was important for the people who come in faith to Medjugorje to pray and strengthen their faith, and return home comforted.

The Sarajevo Archbishop concluded his comments on Medjugorje saying that “until otherwise decided, people have the right to come to Medjugorje, to pray and do penance.”

Cardinal Puljic was a member of the Commission set up by Pope Benedict XVI to give further study to the Medjugorje phenomenon.

The Cardinal’s mention of administrative changes could be the precursor to an official announcement on this from the Holy See.
 
Pope Francis: None of us can say, "I'm a saint." PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 06 December 2015 16:28

On this second Sunday of Advent, the liturgy places us in the school of John the Baptist, who preached a "baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins." And perhaps we ask ourselves, "Why do we have to convert? Conversion is for an atheist who becomes a believer, or a sinner who becomes just. But we don't need it. We are already Christian."

We can ask ourselves this and in this regard say, "We're ok." But that's not true. Thinking like this, we don't realize that it is precisely because of this presumption - that we are Christians, good in every way, that we're doing the right thing - precisely because of this presumption we must convert: from the supposition that, overall, things are going well like they are and we don't need any conversion.

But let us ask: Is it true that in the various situations and circumstances of life, we have in us the same sentiments that Jesus had? Is it true that we feel as Christ felt? For example, when we suffer some evil or some affront, can we react without animosity?

The voice of the Baptist still cries in humanity's deserts of today, which are - what are the deserts of today? - they are the closed minds and the hardened hearts. And [his voice] calls us so that we ask ourselves if we actually are following the right path, living a life according to the Gospel. Today, as then, he admonishes us with the words of the Prophet Isaiah: "Prepare the way of the Lord!"

None of us can say, "I'm a saint; I'm perfect; I'm already saved."

But we should be courageous: make low the mountains of pride and rivalry.

May we be aided in this by Our Lady - who is Mother and who knows how to do it - to bring down the walls and the obstacles that impede our conversion, that is, our journey toward the encounter with the Lord. He alone.

The Joys of Mary PDF Print E-mail

Traditionally, the Church contemplates Mother Mary's sorrows. Here is an additional devotion based on her joys. You are invited to spend a minute or two, now and then, pondering one of her ecstatic moments, feeling the peace, the relief, the triumph, the surprise, the wonderment and gratitude that she experienced.

1/. She is told by the Angel Gabriel that she will conceive and bear a son: the Son of God.

2/. She is affirmed by Elizabeth who, filled with the Holy Spirit, calls her "the mother of my Lord."

3/. She can no longer contain her exhilaration, and bursts out in song, humbly admitting to Elizabeth: "My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour, for he has looked upon the lowliness of his handmaid. Behold, from now on, all generations will call me blessed. For the Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name."

Am I a saint already? PDF Print E-mail

Jesus said, "Enter by the narrow gate, since the road that leads to destruction is wide and spacious, and many take it; but it is a narrow gate and a hard road that leads to life, and only a few find it." (Mt 7:13-14, NJB)

I did not kill anybody, or set fire to someone's house, or committed adultery. I pray daily and go to church. I read the Bible and other spiritual books. I attend religious conferences and gained deep insights into Scripture and theological studies. I am much better informed on religious matters than my acquaintances. I know all the standard religious rituals and formulary prayers and hymns; I can compose lengthy pious prayers instantaneously. I have been instrumental in organizing numerous devotional events. I donate money to worthy causes, help people who are in need, do multiple voluntary works expertly and say many holy things. Surely I am the salt of the earth and the light of the world, am I not? Surely my friends will speak of me as a saint when I die!

Right?

But have I paid any attention to this teaching of James in the New Testament? "Nobody who fails to keep a tight rein on the tongue can claim to be religious; this is mere self-deception; that person's religion is worthless." (Jam 1:26, NJB)
