by

A Friend of Medjugorje

This is the 24th year of novenas being prayed for our nation's healing. One novena is prayed, once each month, for 7 months. That's 153 novenas. June 25, 2016 begins the 154th novena. This novena has become the standard-bearer of prayer for our nation, inspired through Medjugorje, and helping to inspire many other prayer movements since it first began. Below are the prayers of the novena for each month. You can also order the novena here. One copy is free, other quantites are discounted for bulk distribution.


THE NINE-DAY NOVENA — June 25 – July 3

Hope

THERE IS A GRAVENESS AND SERIOUSNESS to what is started today with tens of thousands beginning this novena.

satan, during this time, with all of his might, utilizing all his forces, wishes to sow horror and bring about hopelessness. When people become hopeless, they see no need to pray because they have no hope for change. satan’s tactic of exposing horror after horror about society constantly blaring at us on the news, radios, newspapers, etc. is actually increasing and promoting more of the same. It leaves one without hope of a solution. The more man becomes hopeless, the greater will be the distance from God he experiences. Just before World War II, in Europe, man became hopeless. His problems were real but exaggerated and put constantly in front of him. Hitler came in knowing exactly what to say, inspired by evil, feeding man who craved it. The hopelessness of man during that time was the rubble by which satan and his angels were able to defeat God’s angels. Man turned to man with hopelessness instead of to God with hope. “Hope” is one of the necessary ingredients for the good angels to be victorious. We should realize good angels need fertile ground on which they can defeat demon angels. Where there is no hope, no faith, no charity/love, there will be no victories. Where there is faith, hope, and charity/love, there you will see the angels of God victorious.

The stage is now being set by satan to sow horror after horror with intentions to create hopelessness in man’s heart about his personal problems, as well as society’s and the world’s. God sends us a light to shine, Hope itself, “Mary,” to counter satan’s plan to destroy all of mankind. We, Her children, now realize, had She not come, man would have self destructed. Man would not convert on his own and the result would be the death of the world. The Woman of Revelations reveals that the world had to be placed in intensive care because it is apparent that it can no longer survive on its own.


June 1, 1983

“…I hoped the world would begin to be converted on its own….”

 

It did not, so God intervenes with emergency measures to resuscitate a world which, on its own, will no longer live. Jesus, the Holy Physician, sends His best to intensively nurse back a lifeless world. Every prayer, every act, every response is so important and is a sign of life. As She intensively works on the world, She shows how grateful She is by repeatedly saying: “Thank you for responding…;” “I call you…;” “I am so grateful to you…;” “…to the world;” “…respond;” “…convert.” Just as the vital signs of a body must respond to a doctor’s care to live, so, too, must we to all Our Lady requests. If we do, the spiritual diseases of which we now suffer will heal. Hope, Faith, Charity/Love are the three vital signs for our soul and body which must respond and must be strengthened, increasing daily in us, thereby our family, nation, and the world will be healed. This first novena is for Hope and the next one will be for Faith. Love will be the sixth novena, but all three are the foundation upon which the world will be saved. As you pray the novena of Hope, these thoughts are to be kept in your heart throughout your day.


TO BE SAID DAILY:

Intentions

Mary, we give you this novena for your intentions for December 8-12, for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, for massive conversions, for the fulfillment of all your plans, and the initiation of new plans to reconcile ourselves, our families, and our nation back to God.


TO BE SAID DAILY:

 

Prayer to Heal Our Land


LORD, WHO ARE WE AS A PEOPLE, having been given blessings in portions as no other nation before us? What has become of us, Father? We have spoiled your spacious skies with buildings and cities breathing with sin. The amber waves of grain are no longer viewed as our blessing but as our due. The awe and reverence due You when we gaze upon the purple mountains and their majesty is no longer held; rather, how much pleasure they can give us. Father, we have spurned You. We’ve blamed our problems on those who promote darkness, but You gave us time with Your Mother. Now our eyes have been opened by Her. Our lack of holiness, our not being light has allowed darkness to prevail. Indeed, our sins which we wrongly view as small have allowed those in darkness to commit great sins without shame. We now realize it’s because of our failings as Christians. Father, Samuel told your people, “It is true you have committed all this evil, still you must not turn from the Lord, but worship Him with your whole heart. For the sake of His own great name, the Lord will not abandon his own people.” Father, we come before You with our whole hearts and ask You to grant Our Lady Her intentions.

Mary, we do not deserve to even be heard, yet we know Your Son’s passion merits that we are. Mary, we call You as You have called us. Please, intercede before God to forgive us, to heal us, to heal our families, and to heal our nation.

Father, grant Mary’s intentions and hear Her pleas for us. We know you are justly irritated with us but we beg and plead for forgiveness through our repentance from our hearts. We realize our nation is headed toward disaster by so many signs You have given us. Holy, Holy, Holy God, grant Mary Her requests that we may again be your people, not a nation above God but one nation humbled and under God. Amen.


TO BE SAID DAILY: THE MARCH 18, 1994 MESSAGE


“Dear children! Today my heart is filled with happiness. I would like for you to find yourselves in prayer every day, as today, this great day of prayer. Only thus, can you proceed towards true happiness and true fulfillment of body and soul. As Mother, I want to help you in this. Allow me to do so. I am telling you again to open your hearts to Me and allow Me to lead you. My way leads to God. I invite you that we may proceed together because you see for yourselves, that with our prayers, all evils are destroyed. Let us pray and hope.”

 

Day 1, Saturday, June 25


“Dear children, seek to make your hearts happy through the means of prayer. Dear children, be the joy for all mankind, be the hope of mankind. You will only be able to obtain it through the means of prayer. Pray, pray!” May 3, 1986

 

Day 2, Sunday, June 26 - A world without hope


“Dear children, this time also I am inviting you to prayer. Pray that you might be able to comprehend what God desires to tell you through my presence and through the messages I am giving you. I desire to draw you ever closer to Jesus and to His wounded heart that you might be able to comprehend the immeasurable love which gave itself for each one of you. Therefore, dear children, pray that from your heart would flow a fountain of love to every person both to the one who hates you and to the one who despises you. That way you will be able through Jesus’ love to overcome all the misery in this world of sorrows, which is without hope for those who do not know Jesus. I am with you and I love you with the immeasurable love of Jesus. Thank you for all your sacrifices and prayers. Pray so I might be able to help you still more. Your prayers are necessary to me. Thank you for having responded to my call.” November 25, 1991

 

Day 3, Monday, June 27 - Light is hope


“Dear children, in your life you have all experienced light and darkness. God grants to every person to recognize good and evil. I am calling you to the light, which you should carry to all the people who are in darkness. People who are in darkness daily come into your homes. Dear children, give them the light! Thank you for having responded to my call.” March 14, 1985

Day 4, Tuesday, June 28

“Dear children, today I am calling on you to decide whether or not you wish to live the messages which I am giving you. I wish you to be active in living and spreading the messages. Especially, dear children, I wish that you all be the reflection of Jesus, which will enlighten this unfaithful world walking in darkness. I wish all of you to be the light for everyone and that you give witness in the light. Dear children, you are not called to the darkness, but you are called to the light. Therefore, live the light with your own life. Thank you for having responded to my call.” June 5, 1986

 

Day 5, Wednesday, June 29


“Dear children, today I call you to prayer. By means of prayer, little children, you will obtain joy and peace. Through prayer you are richer in the mercy of God. Therefore, little children, let prayer be the light for each one of you. Especially, I call you to pray so that all those who are far from God may be converted. Then our hearts shall be richer because God will rule in the hearts of all men. Therefore, little children, pray, pray, pray. Let prayer begin to rule in the whole world. Thank you for your response to my call!” August 25, 1989

 

Day 6, Thursday, June 30


“Dear children, I want you to understand that I am your Mother, that I want to help you and call you to prayer. Only by prayer can you understand and accept my messages and practice them in your life. Read Sacred Scripture, live it, and pray to understand the signs of the time. This is a special time. Therefore, I am with you to draw you close to My Heart and the Heart of My Son, Jesus. Dear little children, I want you to be children of the light and not of the darkness. Therefore, live what I am telling you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” August 25, 1993

 

Day 7, Friday, July 1

“Dear children, your Mother asks you to pray as much as you can during these two days. Prepare yourselves in prayer for the feast to come. Dear children, I would like to tell you to bring peace to others during these days. Encourage others to change. You cannot, dear children, give peace if you, yourselves, are not at inner peace. Tonight I give you peace. Give peace to others! Dear children, be a light that shines. I ask you pray the Glorious Mysteries when you go back to your homes tonight. Pray them in front of the Crucifix.” August 12, 1988

 

Day 8, Saturday, July 2


“Dear children! I hoped that the world would begin to be converted on its own. Do now everything you can so that the world can be converted.” June 1, 1983

 

Day 9, Sunday, July 3


“Dear children, today I invite you in a special way to pray for the plans of God to be fulfilled: first of all with you, then with this parish which God Himself has chosen. Dear children, to be chosen by God is really something great, but it is also a responsibility for you to pray more, for you, the chosen ones, to encourage others so you can be a light for people in darkness.

“Children, darkness reigns over the whole world. People are attracted by many things and they forget about the more important.

“Light won’t reign in the world until people accept Jesus, until they live His words, which is the Word of the Gospel…” July 30, 1987

THE NINE-DAY NOVENA — July 25–August 2

Faith


WITHOUT IT, NOTHING IS POSSIBLE. Faith. Even people who deny God must have faith in themselves to accomplish a task. Our age has all but lost its faith. Our Lady tells us why She comes:

Spring, 1982

“…My children, have you not observed that Faith began to extinguish itself?…”

 

Faith is in crisis. Our Lady tells us: Faith is on the verge of being extinguished; many Christians live as pagans; there are few true believers.
When Our Lady first appeared in Medjugorje, on the third day She said regarding the Franciscans:


June 27, 1981

“…Have them persevere in the Faith and protect the faith of the people…”

 

On the very next day, She said, when asked what Her wish was:


June 28, 1981

“…That people believe and persevere in the Faith…”

 

Three days in a row, Our Lady tells the visionaries what She expects of them.


June 29, 1981 

“…That you have a solid faith and that you maintain confidence…”

 

During the next several months, Our Lady says repeatedly: “Deepen your faith,”…strengthen your faith with prayer,”…“faith will not know how to be alive without prayer.” These were among the first words spoken in the first few days and months of the apparitions by Our Lady. Because faith is mentioned so frequently in the beginning of Her apparitions, this signifies the importance of a crisis of faith during our time.

Faith is crucial and it is what will be tested the most in our walk with Our Lady’s plans. Once strengthened, it will sustain us as the foundation of our life and help us to maintain peace in the midst of war.


December 31, 1981 

“…Faith is a vital element…Faith is the foundation from which everything flows…”

 

Medjugorje is a “witness,” an “example,” and a “prophecy” regarding what many in the world will go through both physically and spiritually. The purpose of the war that took place in Bosnia and the surrounding area gives testimony to all three of the above …. It is a witness because they are chosen to be a light through prayer to all the world.

August 25, 1989

“…let prayer be the light for each of you…. Let prayer begin to rule in the whole world…”

 

Medjugorje is an example to show when we walk the path with Our Lady but do not convert, do not change, do not accept the messages or get tired and quit, how badly things will go. There is a serious responsibility of being a witness; to live that to which we are called. Our Lady tried repeatedly to warn them to listen to Her, to accept Her message with seriousness and She said there are those who do not want to accept Her. She finally warned them of their future which was not guaranteed peace but connected to their accepting Her.


March 21, 1985 

“…I call on you—accept me, dear children, that it might go well with you…”

 

It is a prophesy to show what awaits the world and to give testimony and proof to Her message. The war that took place in Bosnia gives us Hope and Faith for our future. The war was among Croatians, Serbs, and Muslims - all living in close proximity, even as neighbors. The hatred among these three was such that there could be no end to this war - neighbor killed neighbor, children were killed, atrocities of such a degree that many could not forgive. There was no solution - no way out. All who knew the complexity and horror of this war knew it was an impossible war to stop. Yet, Our Lady said that through fasting and prayer, even war can be stopped.


July 21, 1982

“…Through fasting and prayer, one can stop wars…”

 

After over two years of war which could not humanly be stopped, Our Lady said to us through Marija:


February 25, 1994 

“Dear children, today I thank you for your prayers. You all have helped so that this war may finish as soon as possible…”

 

This is an incredible prophecy. Our Lady revealed how to stop it. This war was started by man who was invited to change and would not. This war had no chance of a solution after numerous cease fires and treaties. Then, after exhausting human endeavors through the political route and realizing the futility of them and then remembering Our Lady and turning to Her, crying out to Her in prayer and suffering, it was then that Our Lady revealed that God had decided this impossible war would stop because man had finally understood and responded. We needed this painful lesson for our future. It is prophetic because much of the world now finds themselves in impossible situations and will again in the future, ones without escape, with no way out. What a beautiful gift and prophecy. As these situations seem hopeless and many are losing faith, this “witness,” this “example,” this “prophecy” gives us hope and faith that God will find a solution. Reasoning it out, our faith will be strengthened when we look at the past as though through a window and see clearly that things did not go well for people when they did not respond and when they tried to remedy their own situation; but when they realized they had to place their faith in Our Lady to find relief they were told God will grant an end. It is time to gain might and strength in faith so that we will be able to stand the test through which we surely will have to go in the future. These thoughts are to be read, thought about, and kept in our heart during the next nine days.

Intentions

Mary, we give you this novena for your intentions for December 8-12, for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, for massive conversions, for the fulfillment of all your plans, and the initiation of new plans to reconcile ourselves, our families, and our nation back to God.


TO BE SAID DAILY:

Prayer to Heal Our Land

 

LORD, WHO ARE WE AS A PEOPLE, having been given blessings in portions as no other nation before us? What has become of us, Father? We have spoiled your spacious skies with buildings and cities breathing with sin. The amber waves of grain are no longer viewed as our blessing but as our due. The awe and reverence due You when we gaze upon the purple mountains and their majesty is no longer held; rather, how much pleasure they can give us. Father, we have spurned You. We’ve blamed our problems on those who promote darkness, but You gave us time with Your Mother. Now our eyes have been opened by Her. Our lack of holiness, our not being light has allowed darkness to prevail. Indeed, our sins which we wrongly view as small have allowed those in darkness to commit great sins without shame. We now realize it’s because of our failings as Christians. Father, Samuel told your people, “It is true you have committed all this evil, still you must not turn from the Lord, but worship Him with your whole heart. For the sake of His own great name, the Lord will not abandon his own people.” Father, we come before You with our whole hearts and ask You to grant Our Lady Her intentions.

Mary, we do not deserve to even be heard, yet we know Your Son’s passion merits that we are. Mary, we call You as You have called us. Please, intercede before God to forgive us, to heal us, to heal our families, and to heal our nation.

Father, grant Mary’s intentions and hear Her pleas for us. We know you are justly irritated with us but we beg and plead for forgiveness through our repentance from our hearts. We realize our nation is headed toward disaster by so many signs You have given us. Holy, Holy, Holy God, grant Mary Her requests that we may again be your people, not a nation above God but one nation humbled and under God. Amen.


TO BE SAID DAILY: 1984-1985

 

“Tell the faithful that I need their prayers, and prayers from all the people. It is necessary to pray as much as possible and do penance because very few people have been converted up until now. There are many Christians who live like pagans. There are always so few true believers…”

 

Day 1, Monday, July 25

 

“Dear children, these days I call you especially to open your hearts to the Holy Spirit. Especially during these days the Holy Spirit is working through you. Open your hearts and surrender your lives to Jesus so that He works through your hearts and strengthens you in faith. Thank you for having responded to my call.” May 23, 1985

 

Day 2, Tuesday, July 26

 

“I don’t wish to force anyone to do that which he neither feels nor desires, even though I had special messages for the parish by which I wanted to awaken the faith of every believer. But only a really small number has accepted my Thursday messages. In the beginning there were quite a few. But it’s become a routine affair for them. And now recently some are asking for the message out of curiosity, and not out of faith and devotion to my Son and Me.” April 30, 1984

 

Day 3, Wednesday, July 27

 

“Hurry to be converted. Do not wait for the great sign. For the unbelievers, it will then be too late to be converted. For you who have the faith, this time constitutes a great opportunity for you to be converted, and to deepen your faith. Fast on bread and water before every feast, and prepare yourselves through prayer…” December 15, 1982

 

Day 4, Thursday, July 28

 

“I see that you are tired. I wish to support you in your effort, to take you in my arms so that you may be close to me. To all those who wish to ask me questions, I will answer: ‘There is only one response, prayer, a strong faith, and intense prayer, and fasting.’” October 28, 1983

 

Day 5, Friday, July 29

 

“Dear children, God wants to make you holy. Therefore, through me He is calling you to complete surrender. Let the Holy Mass be your life. Understand that the Church is God’s palace, the place in which I gather you and want to show you the way to God. Come and pray! Neither look to others nor slander them, but rather let your life be a testimony on the way of holiness. Churches deserve respect and are set apart as holy because God, Who became Man, dwells in them day and night. Therefore, little children, believe and pray that the Father increases your faith, and then ask for whatever you need. I am with you and I rejoice because of your conversion and I am protecting you with my Motherly mantle. Thank you for having responded to my call.” April 25, 1988

 

Day 6, Saturday, July 30

 

“Dear children, today again I am calling you to complete conversion, which is difficult for those who have not chosen God. I am calling you, dear children, to convert fully to God. God can give you everything that you seek from Him. But you seek God only when sicknesses, problems, and difficulties come to you and you think that God is far from you and is not listening and does not hear your prayers. No, dear children, that is not the truth! When you are far from God, you cannot receive graces because you do not seek them with a firm faith. Day by day, I am praying for you and I want to draw you ever closer to God; but I cannot if you don’t want it. Therefore, dear children, put your life in God’s hands. I bless you all. Thank you for having responded to my call.” January 25, 1988

 

Day 7, Sunday, July 31

 

“…Dear children, this is the reason for my presence among you for such a long time: to lead you on the path of Jesus. I want to save you and, through you, to save the whole world. Many people now live without faith; some don’t even want to hear about Jesus, but they still want peace and satisfaction! Children, here is the reason why I need your prayer: prayer is the only way to save the human race.” July 30, 1987

 

Day 8, Monday, August 1

 

“It is God who gives them. My children, have you not observed that faith began to extinguish itself? There are many who do not come to church except through habit. It is necessary to awaken the faith. It is a gift from God. If it is necessary, I will appear in each home.” Spring, 1982

 

Day 9, Tuesday, August 2

 

“Without faith, nothing is possible. All those who will believe firmly will be cured.” July 24, 1981

“I ask you only to pray with fervor. Prayer must become a part of your daily life to permit the true faith to take root.” September 8, 1981

“Do not give in. Keep your faith. I will accompany you at every step.” November 10, 1981

“The devil is trying to conquer us. Do not permit him. Keep the faith, fast, and pray. I will be with you at every step…” November 16, 1981

“…The world must find salvation while there is time. Let it pray with fervor. May it have the spirit of faith.” November 22, 1981

“It is necessary for the world to be saved while there is still time, for it to pray strongly, and for it to have the spirit of faith.” November 29, 1981

“It is necessary to tell them that from the very beginning I have been conveying the message of God to the world. It is a great pity not to believe in it. Faith is a vital element., but one cannot compel a person to believe. Faith is the foundation from which everything flows.” December 31, 1981

THE NINE-DAY NOVENA — Aug 25–Sept 2

 

Individual Conversions


OUR LADY’S PLANS CALL FOR OUR individual conversion first. Only by living the messages and changing our lives are we able to then convert our families. Once families are converted, then and only then, can nations be healed. If nations are healed throughout all the world, love will reign. Our own conversion is the basis for all Our Lady’s plans to be accomplished. The following novena is to be prayed with the thought of changing our personal lives.

Therefore, dear children, pray, and in prayer you shall realize a new way of joy.

I desire that through each one of you God’s plan may be fulfilled, that all which God has planted in your heart may keep on growing.

Day 4, Sunday, August 28


“Dear children, I am calling everyone of you to start living in God’s love. Dear children, you are ready to commit sin, and to put yourselves in the hands of satan without reflecting.

Dear children, pray and accept all that God is offering you on a way which is bitter. But at the same time, God will reveal every sweetness to whomever begins to go on that way, and He will gladly answer every call of God. Do not attribute importance to petty things. Long for heaven. Thank you for having responded to my call.” July 25, 1987

 


Day 7, Wednesday, August 31


“Dear children, today also I am calling you all in order that each one of you decides to live my messages. God has permitted me also in this year, which the Church has dedicated to me, to be able to speak to you and to be able to spur you on to holiness. Dear children, seek from God the graces which He is giving you through me. I am ready to intercede with God for all that you seek so that your holiness may be complete. Therefore, dear children, do not forget to seek, because God has permitted me to obtain graces for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” August 25, 1987

 


Day 8, Thursday, September 1


“Dear children, today also I want to call you all to prayer. Let prayer be your life. Dear children, dedicate your time only to Jesus and He will give you everything that you are seeking. He will reveal Himself to you in fullness. Dear children, satan is strong and is waiting to test each one of you. Pray, and that way he will neither be able to injure you nor block you on the way of holiness. Dear children, through prayer grow all the more toward God from day to day. Thank you for having responded to my call.” September 25, 1987

 


Day 9, Friday, September 2


“My dear children, today I want to call all of you to decide for Paradise. The way is difficult for those who have not decided for God. Dear children, decide and believe that God is offering Himself to you in His fullness. You are invited and you need to answer the call of the Father, who is calling you through me. Pray, because in prayer each one of you will be able to achieve complete love. I am blessing you and I desire to help you so that each one of you might be under my Motherly mantle. Thank you for having responded to my call.” October 25, 1987

THE NINE-DAY NOVENA — Sept 25.–Oct. 3

Family

 

OUR LADY’S CALL FOR THE CONVERSION of the world for the salvation of mankind is through the family. It is through the family that She wishes many of the future fruits of Her plans to be fulfilled. She wishes to present these families as petals of a flower to God. The daily message for this novena and the ninth day message are beautifully wed even though given two years apart. You will pray on the ninth day of the following novena a message that shows this beautiful intent of Our Lady. Those attending in December will be given the opportunity to fulfill the December 20, 1984, message in the Field.

TO BE SAID DAILY:

Intentions

Mary, we give you this novena for your intentions for December 8-12, for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, for massive conversions, for the fulfillment of all your plans, and the initiation of new plans to reconcile ourselves, our families, and our nation back to God.


TO BE SAID DAILY:

Prayer to Heal Our Land

 

LORD, WHO ARE WE AS A PEOPLE, having been given blessings in portions as no other nation before us? What has become of us, Father? We have spoiled your spacious skies with buildings and cities breathing with sin. The amber waves of grain are no longer viewed as our blessing but as our due. The awe and reverence due You when we gaze upon the purple mountains and their majesty is no longer held; rather, how much pleasure they can give us. Father, we have spurned You. We’ve blamed our problems on those who promote darkness, but You gave us time with Your Mother. Now our eyes have been opened by Her. Our lack of holiness, our not being light has allowed darkness to prevail. Indeed, our sins which we wrongly view as small have allowed those in darkness to commit great sins without shame. We now realize it’s because of our failings as Christians. Father, Samuel told your people, “It is true you have committed all this evil, still you must not turn from the Lord, but worship Him with your whole heart. For the sake of His own great name, the Lord will not abandon his own people.” Father, we come before You with our whole hearts and ask You to grant Our Lady Her intentions.

Mary, we do not deserve to even be heard, yet we know Your Son’s passion merits that we are. Mary, we call You as You have called us. Please, intercede before God to forgive us, to heal us, to heal our families, and to heal our nation.

Father, grant Mary’s intentions and hear Her pleas for us. We know you are justly irritated with us but we beg and plead for forgiveness through our repentance from our hearts. We realize our nation is headed toward disaster by so many signs You have given us. Holy, Holy, Holy God, grant Mary Her requests that we may again be your people, not a nation above God but one nation humbled and under God. Amen.


TO BE SAID DAILY: THE MAY 1, 1986 MESSAGE

 

“Dear children, I beseech you to start changing your life in the family. Let the family be a harmonious flower that I wish to give to Jesus.

Day 4, Wednesday, September 28

 

“Dear children, I rejoice because of all of you who are on the way of holiness and I beseech you, by your own testimony help those who do not know how to live in holiness.

Thank you for having responded to my call.” July 24, 1986

 

Day 5, Thursday, September 29

 

“Dear children, today I invite you all to awaken your hearts to love. Go into nature and look how nature is awakening and it will be a help for you to open your hearts to the love of God the Creator. I desire you to awaken love in your families so that where there is unrest and hatred, love will reign and when there is love in your hearts, then there is also prayer. And, dear children, do not forget that I am with you and I am helping you with my prayer that God may give you the strength to love. I bless and love you with My Motherly love.

Allow the Holy Spirit to come. The Holy Spirit comes through prayer. That is why, pray and allow the Holy Spirit to renew you, to renew today’s family. Your Mother will help you.” July 3, 1989

 

Day 8, Sunday, October 2

 

“Dear children, tonight especially I would like to invite all the parents in the world to find time for their children and family. May they offer love to their children. May this love that they offer be parental and motherly love. Once again, dear children, I call you to family prayer. During one of the previous encounters your Mother asked you to renew the family prayer. I ask that again tonight. During this period, let us pray together for all the young people in the world.” July 31, 1989

 

Day 9, Monday, October 3

 

“Dear children, today I am asking you to do something concrete for Jesus Christ. As a sign of dedication to Jesus, I want each family of the parish to bring a single flower before that happy day. I want every member of the family to have a single flower by the crib so Jesus can come and see your dedication to Him! Thank you for having responded to my call.” December 20, 1984

THE NINE-DAY NOVENA — Oct. 25–Nov. 2

Nation


ONE OF THE FOUNDING FATHERS of the United States, George Mason, made the following statement about how God deals with nations which have no spirit, when as a nation they do wrong.
 

“As nations cannot be rewarded or punished in the next world, they must be in this. By an inevitable chain of causes and effects, Providence punishes national sins by national calamities.”


For years Our Lady has told us, invited us, and encouraged us toward reconciling, as a people as well as individually, back to God. We now see plainly the price that was paid by the people in former Yugoslavia for not heeding Her call. The following novena should be prayed with these thoughts about our own nation in mind.

TO BE SAID DAILY:

Intentions

 

Mary, we give you this novena for your intentions for December 8-12, for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, for massive conversions, for the fulfillment of all your plans, and the initiation of new plans to reconcile ourselves, our families, and our nation back to God.

Holy, Holy, Holy God, grant Mary Her requests that we may again be your people, not a nation above God but one nation humbled and under God. Amen.


TO BE SAID DAILY: THE APRIL 25, 1992 MESSAGE

 

“Dear children, today also I invite you to prayer. Only by prayer and fasting can war be stopped. Therefore, my dear little children, pray and by your life give witness that you are mine and that you belong to me, because satan wishes in these turbulent days to seduce as many souls as possible. Therefore, I invite you to decide for God and He will protect you and show you what you should do and which path to take. I invite all those who have said “yes” to me to renew their consecration to My Son, Jesus, and to His heart and to me so we can take you more intensely as instruments of peace in this unpeaceful world. Medjugorje is a sign to all of you and a call to pray and live the days of grace that God is giving you. Therefore, dear children, accept the call to prayer with seriousness. I am with you and your suffering is also mine. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

 

Day 1, Tuesday, October 25


“Dear children, today I invite you in a special way to pray for the plans of God to be fulfilled: first of all with you, then with this parish which God Himself has chosen. Dear children, to be chosen by God is really something great, but it is also a responsibility for you to pray more, for you, the chosen ones, to encourage others so you can be a light for people in darkness…” July 30, 1987

 

Day 2, Wednesday, October 26

 

“Dear children, in a special way this evening, I am calling you during Lent to honor the wounds of my Son, which He received from the sins of this parish. Unite yourselves with my prayers for the parish so that His sufferings may be bearable. Thank you for having responded to my call. Try to come in ever greater numbers.” March 22, 1984

 

Day 3, Thursday, October 27


“Dear children, these days satan is manifesting himself in a special way in this parish. Pray, dear children, that God’s plan is brought into effect and that every work of satan ends up for the glory of God. I have stayed with you this long so I might help you along in your trials. Thank you for having responded to my call.” February 7, 1985


Day 4, Friday, October 28


“Dear children, today I thank you for every opening of your hearts. Joy overtakes me for every heart that is opened to God especially from the parish. Rejoice with me! Pray all the prayers for the opening of sinful hearts. I desire that. God desires that through me. Thank you for having responded to my call.” April 18, 1985

 

Day 5, Saturday, October 29

 

Regarding Russia:

“The Russian people will be the people who will glorify God the most. Regarding the West: the West has made civilization progress, but without God, as if they were their own creators.” October, 1981

 

To Ivanka:

“You, the members of this parish, have a large and heavy cross to bear; but do not be afraid to carry it. My Son is here to help you.” April 5, 1985 (Good Friday)


Regarding Poland—a nation decidedly turning in its struggle away from evils toward good:


“There will be great conflicts, but in the end, the just will take over.” October, 1981

 

Day 6, Sunday, October 30

 

“Dear children, today like never, I call you to pray for peace; for peace in you hearts, peace in your families, and peace in the whole world, because satan wants war, wants lack of peace, wants to destroy all which is good. Therefore, dear children, pray, pray, pray. Thank you for having responded to my call.” March 25, 1993

 

Day 7, Monday, October 31


“Christians make a mistake in considering the future because they think of wars and of evil. For a Christian, there is only one attitude toward the future. It is hope of salvation.” August, 1984

“If you think of evil, punishment, wars, you are on the road to meeting them. Your responsibility is to accept Divine peace, live it, and spread it.” August, 1984

 

Day 8, Tuesday, November 1

 

“Dear children, today in a special way I bring the little Jesus to you, that He may bless you with His blessing of peace and love. Dear children, do not forget that this is a grace which many people neither understand nor accept. Therefore, you who have said that you are mine and seek my help, give all of yourself. First of all, give your love and an example in your families. You say that Christmas is a family feast, therefore, dear children, put God in the first place in your families so that He may give you peace and may protect you not only from war, but also during peace, protect you from every satanic attack. When God is with you, you have everything. But when you do not want Him, then you are miserable and lost, and you do not know on whose side you are. Therefore, dear children, decide for God and then you will get everything. Thank you for having responded to my call.” December 25, 1991

 

Day 9, Wednesday, November 2

 

“I have come because there are many true believers here. I wish to be with you to convert and to reconcile the whole world…” June 26, 1981

 

“Peace, Peace, Peace! Be reconciled! Only Peace. Make your peace with God and among yourselves. For that, it is necessary to believe, to pray, to fast, and to go to confession…” June 26, 1981

 

“I am happy because you have begun to prepare the monthly observance of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. That will be good for the whole world. Persevere in prayer. It is the true way which leads you toward My Son.” October 1, 1982

 

Concerning Confession:


“One must invite people to go to Confession each month, especially the first Saturday. Here, I have not spoken about it yet. I have invited people to frequent Confession. I will give you yet some concrete messages for our time. Be patient because the time has not yet come. Do what I have told you. They are numerous who do not observe it. Monthly Confession will be a remedy for the Church in the West. One must convey this message to the West.” August 6, 1982 (THE TRANSFIGURATION)

 

This is not to say these things are not part of purification and the world will not see many of these, but, rather, Our Lady wants us, Her children, to preoccupy ourselves with holiness with a bright future, full of hope, faith, and charity. Our victory is salvation, if we live our Christianity. Wars, punishments, and evil are for those who do not. Our only connection to these events is to help us expiate our past sins.

THE NINE-DAY NOVENA — Nov. 25–Dec. 3

Love


OUR LADY’S DESIRE IS TO “CONQUER” THE WORLD. She has plainly stated that She wishes to bring about a “Kingdom.” Hearing these words “Kingdom” and “conquer” brings to mind warfare. It is exactly that, except Our Lady intends the means for fighting and conquering is “LOVE.” Love is to be our only instrument. The battle is over the conversion of ourselves, our nation, and the world. We are to break away from everything which does not elevate God and hinders our living a holy life. Once we begin this path, we will easily see that the struggles within ourselves and around us are no less than a real battle toward good. The only path to true victory is learning to love, because only love is capable of dealing with a society gone so far astray.

Many think change will come about just through prayer. It will not because prayer without love amounts to useless words. Unless we are willing to radically change our lives an eternity of prayer will do nothing. Yet as one four year old told his dad,
 

“Dad, one ‘Glory Be’ changes the whole world.”


Indeed one prayer said with love, with our lives changed, prayed from the heart, alters the whole world by bringing more grace into the world. This increases good which decreases evil, thereby, altering the whole world.

 

“…It does not suffice to pray. You must change your life, your heart. Love the others, have love for others…” Undated

 

The meaning for the following novena is for love to prevail and conquer and to respond to Our Lady in helping to bring it about. We pray December will be a big step for Our Lady in accomplishing Her plans through us.
 

“…I want you to love all men with my love, both the good and the bad. Only that way will love ‘conquer’ the world…” May 25, 1988

“…Dear children, pray, so that in the whole world may come the Kingdom of Love. How mankind would be happy if love reigned!” March 25, 1986 (ANNUNCIATION)

“I wish to engrave in every heart the sign of love. If you love all mankind, then there is peace in you. If you are at peace with all men, it is the kingdom of love…” January 18, 1984


TO BE SAID DAILY:

Intentions

Mary, we give you this novena for your intentions for December 8-12, for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, for massive conversions, for the fulfillment of all your plans, and the initiation of new plans to reconcile ourselves, our families, and our nation back to God.


TO BE SAID DAILY:


Prayer to Heal Our Land

 

LORD, WHO ARE WE AS A PEOPLE, having been given blessings in portions as no other nation before us? What has become of us, Father? We have spoiled your spacious skies with buildings and cities breathing with sin. The amber waves of grain are no longer viewed as our blessing but as our due. The awe and reverence due You when we gaze upon the purple mountains and their majesty is no longer held; rather, how much pleasure they can give us. Father, we have spurned You. We’ve blamed our problems on those who promote darkness, but You gave us time with Your Mother. Now our eyes have been opened by Her. Our lack of holiness, our not being light has allowed darkness to prevail. Indeed, our sins which we wrongly view as small have allowed those in darkness to commit great sins without shame. We now realize it’s because of our failings as Christians. Father, Samuel told your people, “It is true you have committed all this evil, still you must not turn from the Lord, but worship Him with your whole heart. For the sake of His own great name, the Lord will not abandon his own people.” Father, we come before You with our whole hearts and ask You to grant Our Lady Her intentions.

Mary, we do not deserve to even be heard, yet we know Your Son’s passion merits that we are. Mary, we call You as You have called us. Please, intercede before God to forgive us, to heal us, to heal our families, and to heal our nation.

Father, grant Mary’s intentions and hear Her pleas for us. We know you are justly irritated with us but we beg and plead for forgiveness through our repentance from our hearts. We realize our nation is headed toward disaster by so many signs You have given us. Holy, Holy, Holy God, grant Mary Her requests that we may again be your people, not a nation above God but one nation humbled and under God. Amen.


TO BE SAID DAILY: THE JUNE 25, 1988 MESSAGE

“Dear children, today I am calling you to the love which is loyal and pleasing to God. Little children, love bears everything bitter and difficult for the sake of Jesus Who is love. Therefore, dear children, pray God to come to your aid, not, however, according to your desires but according to His love. Surrender yourselves to God so that He may heal you, console you, and forgive everything inside you which is a hindrance on the way of love. In this way, God can mold your life and you will grow in love. Dear children, glorify God with the canticle of love so that God’s love may be able to grow in you day by day to its fullness. Thank you for having responded to my call.”


Day 1, Friday, November 25


The following two messages were given to Marija by Our Lady while Marija was in America, near Birmingham, Alabama:
 

“I invite you to live my messages. I am here to help you! I will intercede for you to God for all your intentions.”


November 24, 1988 -Thanksgiving Day


Our Lady came and was very happy. She blessed and prayed over everyone. Marija recommended all those present to Our Lady and She prayed The Lord’s Prayer and the Glory Be. Our Lady extended Her arms and prayed in Hebrew over everyone. Her message:

“I wish that all your life be love, only love. Everything that you do, do it with love. In every little thing, see Jesus and His example. You also do as Jesus did. He died out of love for you. You also offer all you do with love to God, even the smallest little things of everyday life…” November 30, 1988


Day 2, Saturday, November 26

“Dear children, today my call to you is that in your life you live love towards God and neighbor. Without love, dear children, you can do nothing. Therefore, dear children, I am calling you to live in mutual love. Only in that way will you be able to love and accept both me and all those around you who are coming into your parish. Everyone will sense my love through you. Therefore, I beseech you, dear children, to start loving from today with an ardent love, the love with which I love you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” May 29, 1986


Day 3, Sunday, November 27


Jelena asks why Our Lady is so beautiful:


“I am beautiful because I love. If you want to be beautiful, love. There is no one in the world who does not desire beauty.” March 25, 1985


Before the blessing at the end of the prayer group meeting:

“Dear children, you will be able to receive Divine love only in proportion to when you understand that, on the cross, God offers you His immense love.” February 22, 1986


Day 4, Monday, November 28


“You can receive a grace immediately, or in a month, or in ten years. I do not need The Lord’s Prayer said a hundred or two hundred times. It is better to pray only one, but with a desire to encounter God. You should do everything out of love. Accept all annoyances, all difficulties, everything, with love. Dedicate yourselves to love.” March 9, 1985


Day 5, Tuesday, November 29

“Dear children, I am calling you to the love of neighbor and love toward the one from whom evil comes to you. In that way you will be able to discern the intentions of hearts. Pray and love, dear children! By love you are able to do even that which you think is impossible. Thank you for having responded to my call.” November 7, 1985


Day 6, Wednesday, November 30

“Dear children, I wish to thank you for all the sacrifices and I invite you to the greatest sacrifice, the sacrifice of love. Without love, you are not able to accept either me or my Son. Without love, you cannot give an account of your experiences to others. Therefore, dear children, I call you to begin to live love within yourselves. Thank you for having responded to my call.” March 27, 1986


Day 7, Thursday, December 1


“Dear children, I desire to call you to grow in love. A flower is not able to grow normally without water. So also you, dear children, are not able to grow without God’s blessing. From day to day you need to seek His blessing so you will grow normally and perform all your actions in union with God. Thank you for having responded to my call.” April 10, 1986


Day 8, Friday, December 2

“Dear children, hatred gives birth to dissensions and does not regard anyone or anything. I call you always to bring harmony and peace. Especially, dear children, in the place where you live, act with love. Let your only instrument always be love. By love turn everything into good which satan desires to destroy and possess. Only that way will you be completely mine and I shall be able to help you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” July 31, 1986

 

Day 9, Saturday, December 3


“Dear children, today also I am calling you to live and follow with a special love all the messages which I am giving you. Dear children, God does not want you lukewarm and undecided, but that you totally surrender to Him. You know that I love you and that I burn out of love for you. Therefore, dear children, you also decide for love so that you will burn out of love and daily experience God’s love. Dear children, decide for love so that love prevails in all of you, but not human love, rather God’s love. Thank you for having responded to my call.” November 20, 1986

THE NINE-DAY NOVENA - December 4-12,

Spiritual Healing

SHORTLY BEFORE THE CIVIL WAR, things were very bleak in the United States economy and in the country. The future did not look good. Ten men in New York began to meet at lunch and pray. Others soon joined and before long at lunchtime in the streets of New York, 10,000 people were praying daily for the healing of the nation. It was healed but not as expected. Rather it happened through the purification of a Civil War.

Knowing the past will help you know the future. The revival which took place in New York birthed many movements which still exist today. People then were much the same in spirit as the people today - not praying, gloating over human achievements, etc. A great deal is said of the state of our nation’s spirit by a statement written by Abraham Lincoln:
 

“We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of heaven; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity; we have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown.

“But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these things were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.

“Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us.”

ABRAHAM LINCOLN

 

We believe we are in the same situation today and that these five days (December 8-12) are days of rebirth, of revival for our nation, but we must remember the past. Healing does not come without pain. An evil tumor is not removed without surgical procedures which are painful in themselves but bring about healing. Our nation was and is to be a light to other nations. It was founded on Biblical, Christian principles. Its founders used the Bible to form and mold this nation. Perhaps as no other nation in history, we, like St Paul, can “boast” that God’s hand laid heavily upon our founding. Yet now so many deny God in virtually everything. We blame those in darkness but we realize now that chastisement, about which Our Lady has spoken, is because of our failure to carry the torch. It is we who have allowed darkness to prevail, many times even cooperating with it and participating in it. Chastisement will come because of our failures as Christians. Yet this is our security for the Father knows best what we need to draw us close to Him, and every good father disciplines his children. We must not be announcers of doom, rather of joy and light because for a Christian the future is one of salvation. So we look for a bright future, full of hope, even though we may have a difficult path to follow to get there. The following novena is to be prayed with these thoughts in our hearts to heal us, our families, and our nation.
 

All the following messages were given by Our Lady from this valley.

LORD, WHO ARE WE AS A PEOPLE, having been given blessings in portions as no other nation before us? What has become of us, Father? We have spoiled your spacious skies with buildings and cities breathing with sin. The amber waves of grain are no longer viewed as our blessing but as our due. The awe and reverence due You when we gaze upon the purple mountains and their majesty is no longer held; rather, how much pleasure they can give us. Father, we have spurned You. We’ve blamed our problems on those who promote darkness, but You gave us time with Your Mother. Now our eyes have been opened by Her. Our lack of holiness, our not being light has allowed darkness to prevail. Indeed, our sins which we wrongly view as small have allowed those in darkness to commit great sins without shame. We now realize it’s because of our failings as Christians. Father, Samuel told your people, “It is true you have committed all this evil, still you must not turn from the Lord, but worship Him with your whole heart. For the sake of His own great name, the Lord will not abandon his own people.” Father, we come before You with our whole hearts and ask You to grant Our Lady Her intentions.

Mary, we do not deserve to even be heard, yet we know Your Son’s passion merits that we are. Mary, we call You as You have called us. Please, intercede before God to forgive us, to heal us, to heal our families, and to heal our nation.

Father, grant Mary’s intentions and hear Her pleas for us. We know you are justly irritated with us but we beg and plead for forgiveness through our repentance from our hearts. We realize our nation is headed toward disaster by so many signs You have given us. Holy, Holy, Holy God, grant Mary Her requests that we may again be your people, not a nation above God but one nation humbled and under God. Amen.
