What a beautiful and sweet name for me
By Christina Lau
“Medjugorje” What a beautiful and sweet name for me now. But recalled more than twenty years ago, I found it strange and out of the way when I heard about it.
This year on 20th of June is my second time visited Medjugorje, I found a little bit disappointed with more and more commercial buildings, restaurants…etc. Other than that, I am proud of being a catholic with a rosary in hand praying and walking openly in the street. All the people come here for one intention – seek the face of God through Mother Mary’s teaching, how to become a children of God.
I really don’t know how to describe the joy and peace that I have since I practiced and followed the path that Mother Mary shows to me here.
I couldn’t imagine Daily Mass become a starter of my daily life, Eucharist is my daily spiritual bread and prayers are my intimate conversation with my Heavenly Father. I love to deepen my spiritual knowledge by reading and study Holy Bible. All that happen because by the grace of Our Lord and the blessing of Our Blessed Mother!
No wonder people called Medjugorje “A Heaven on Earth!” Everyday people here are fully occupied with spiritual activities. You can never taste the beauty of these spiritual fruits if you haven’t been here before. I really feel I am so blessed to be one of the chosen one among them.
Our Blessed Mother’s daily appearance brings us the key of Heaven, only if we are willing to open ourselves to Her, the graces of God will descend upon us profoundly. Our life shall change, our hearts will listen to what He wants us to do and knowing how blessed we are as children of God. Peace and joy are the fruits of holiness that we embrace.
Therefore I pray that you will be there among us to taste the Goodness of The Lord!
