Our Lady of Medjugorje said on January 2, 2017:
The thing dearest to Our Lady’s heart is the prayer, which is an act of love, a physical action. How much more so is this act of love dear when it is directed towards Her?
Traffic stops. No cars, no busses, no taxis can pass on this street pictured above when Our Lady is appearing. Normal life is put on hold for the presence of Our Lady. This should be our response every day that Our Lady is appearing. What is it that one thinks about the fact that it is possible to physically be in the presence of Our Lady? Does one consider putting normal life on hold? A Friend of Medjugorje tells us:
“…Fast forward to the day of your judgment when you will stand before God to make an accounting of your life. What will you have to say for yourself, you who knew Our Lady was appearing every day? Scripture states that love forgives a multitude of sins. Love Our Lady enough to honor Her at 6:40 p.m. Medjugorje time, and the Father will bless you for that love. On the other hand, imagine how difficult it will be to have to admit that we knew Our Lady was appearing, but we were too busy in our lives to make a small space to honor Her each evening...”1
Love Her enough, honor Her enough and remember that it is possible to physically be in Her presence when She appears in Medjugorje. Some have difficulty making it to Medjugorje but try anyway. Others do not have an excuse for not trying. To which group do you belong?
