Do you wonder why that as of June 24, 2011 A.D., Our Lady has been coming to us for thirty years? Before Medjugorje began, this was unthinkable—to have a sequence of continuous daily apparitions for 30 years. But why so long? Why so many messages? What is Our Lady’s purpose?

First of all, to write clearly in answering the above questions results in consequences. To say what needs to be said has risks, risks of alienation. Why? Because there are consequences to giving truth. When you know something is of truth and you give this truth, you will be confronted with and tempted to weigh out the consequences of the negative reactions of giving truth. Many who weigh out the negative consequences will not give truth because truth will always get you into trouble. Jesus was truth and even the apostles sometimes tried to stop Him from living or pronouncing truth. They sometimes did this when they weighed out the negative consequences coming from the Sanhedrin or from other sources. Peter said to Jesus, “Do not go to Jerusalem.” Jesus called Peter “satan” for trying to prevent the truth from being proclaimed of which was Jesus’ walk to salvation. All the while, many sympathize with Peter. But Peter was weighing out the negative consequences that come from living truth and this is precisely what the devil wants: to make life miserable for the one who seeks to live and give witness to the truth by their life. Darkness does this by attacking and surrounding truth with confusion, smoke screens, anger, slanders, etc., so as to make souls lose courage and be silent. These are tactics to stymie you. It is the first goal of satan to prevent you from being empowered with the Word in witnessing to the truth by your life because darkness knows the Word/truth/Our Lady’s messages are the foundation upon which you are to live out your witness.

Apparition Trail

One of the many paths in Medjugorje where millions have walked to the mountains or returned to the church or to their homes. With over three decades of daily apparitions, every part of the earth has been represented in Medjugorje; from every group of people, language, culture, faith and class. Medjugorje: a phenomenon of God’s direct intervention into redirecting man’s path…with effects until the end of the world.

A Friend of Medjugorje

It is not truth itself, but the devil, who is the cause of so much turmoil around truth. All throughout history, this satan-induced turmoil would incite man to be against those souls known as the prophets to kill them in order to silence the truth. The reaction against truth is that potent. Indeed, it is sometimes wise to give the minimal weapon that you can to satan when you give truth, as he will always change it and turn it against you. Is this difficult for satan? Not at all, because man’s heart is prone to what is error rather than truth. It, therefore, is easy for satan to cause turmoil to surround truth because people do not like truth. Truth is not pleasant. Truth convicts and one must accept it or reject it. Truth is not only rejected by the world, it is also always persecuted. Truth is never allowed to be propagated without persecution. Our Lady’s messages reveal that we are in a crisis time of mounting error upon error. Today the Christian life has eroded to a level so dangerous that it threatens the world’s very existence. There is little obedience to the Commandments by God’s own people. The devil’s activities and actions taken to destroy God’s people are through small incremental steps, or “creeping gradualism”.1 As Christians we are affected by a culture that we ourselves make up. It is a boomerang effect that though many Christians talk of how terrible everything is, the Christians are the ones who have allowed the degradation of culture and are the main contributors to the culture’s destruction. Most Christians are blind to this because of a lack of reflection on how poorly they are living the Christian life. The pagan is not the preserver of culture, the believer is. If culture is in decline, it’s because belief/faith is in decline. We, therefore, are the primary cause when Christian culture declines. As a result, all else declines with it and darkness grows.


Our Lady’s messages show us we must give up things and ways and change the direction of our lives. That is not pleasant. We have lost the way. We do not see what is happening today nor understand our times. We do not have the traceability to see that in our present time we are living with the consequences from decisions made in the past to not fully live the Christian life. For decades man has been preoccupied, so absorbed in his own path, he has not recognized that he has taken a path away from God. He has replaced God with things, money, even medical breakthroughs to heal oneself, as the first of what is sought rather than God first and all else second. Our Lady has come to change our path. By fully incorporating Our Lady’s messages ‘today’ into one’s life, we can know prophetically what our future will be by beginning on this new corrected path. The word, “today,” is a word that is a message within Our Lady’s monthly messages. She often says, “Dear children, today…” “Today” if you apply the messages, if you ground yourself in the messages “today,” you will become prophetic.

One can now see we are living under an antichrist system. Yes, we, as God’s people, the more we incorporate the fullness of Christian life into our own lives, will be able to discern easily that the antichrist system is already planted in place. The present antichrist system only needs time for it to grow. All the elements are present for it to become the horrid tree that will lead us to the end of the world. However, living the messages, we are shown that Our Lady is here to intercept the time of the antichrist whose time is active now. This interruption by Our Lady will happen through you and others. She is gaining enough souls to uproot this grotesque weed tree planted by the devil to grow his reign into conquering all the world. However, for this evil tree to be uprooted, it is not solely up to Our Lady, as Our Lady depends on you. Our Lady said:

August 19, 1988

“…I cannot do anything, and I want to do a lot, but I cannot do it without you…”

Our Lady’s plan must have your active involvement, without which the world will destroy itself. Our Lady, now in Her time, wants to accomplish a special work on earth that the world has never seen. What is this special work?

In the time the Tower of Babel was being built, God came down to intercept man because thinking to make a name for himself, man planned to build into the sky a metro city, advancing an urban culture apart from God. Laws of physics in the time of Babel are the same laws of physics today. Back a few short centuries ago, to our present time, man began a path which led to the Industrial Revolution. Go back several millenniums or so ago and ask yourself what if this trek that eventually led to the Industrial Revolution began not in the 1800’s but, instead, began with the city in Babel’s time. And what if within a few centuries Babel’s path continued and tapped into the laws of physics that made up the discoveries that brought about the Industrial Revolution? Babel started a path of change crawling out from under an ancient civilization to become a modern culture that turned away from God, just as our present civilization is doing today. Babel was advancing history’s schedule and the progression of culture. If it reached the point of fruition at that point in time, it would not fit the plan of salvation of when and how Jesus was to walk the earth.

Laws of physics governing the minerals and elements that make up television, automobiles, technologies, aircraft, medical breakthroughs, etc., were hidden in physics and in the earth in Babel’s time. But if Babel had not been destroyed, could it have advanced down the same trek that in a few centuries following Babel’s progress would have brought about all the combinations that led man to the Industrial Revolution of our age? And if Jesus then came after this progression of Babel, could He have walked His walk with all of the things modernism has given us which vie for and consume all of man’s attention, as the modern life does now? No. It would not be conducive to a way of life in which Christ could root His kingdom into man’s heart. Since that first Pentecost, the Church advanced Christian ways into the culture worldwide. Christianity was the guiding light of culture’s advancement.

But a new spirit of man was introduced with the introduction of the Industrial Revolution, and Christian life came under assault which has led to its present decline today in the world. We must ask ourselves if instead of in our time, the Industrial Revolution had taken place a few centuries after Babel’s leap, would man have allowed room to establish Jesus’ Heavenly kingdom in the heart as he did in the un-industrial age of 2000 years ago? That is what we are up against today. There is little room in the heart of modern man for the Kingdom of God. The heart has been taken over by a city of Babel mentality. It is clear we have expelled God and His Heavenly Kingdom out of the heart, in place of the glitter of technology and modernism. Our Lady plans to tear down this new, modern city of Babel that is rooted in the heart. Our Lady said:

August 2, 2005

“Dear children, I have come to you with open arms, to take you all into my embrace, under my mantle. I cannot do this while your heart is filled with false glitters and false idols. Cleanse your heart…Then I will take you under my mantle and give you my Son, the true peace and happiness. Do not wait my children…”

Our Lady wants ‘today’ to take you back ‘to the Jesus’ of 2000 years ago. Why? Because the human heart today is deceived and instead of Christ in the heart, satan is gaining his kingdom’s reign in and over the heart of man in all cultures and peoples of the earth. Our Lady says:

October 2, 2003

“Dear children, give me your hearts completely. Allow me to take you to my Son, Who is the true peace and happiness. Do not allow the false brightness that is surrounding you and being offered to you to deceive you. Do not allow satan to reign over you with the false peace and happiness. Come to me, I am with you.”

Many would say, “Don’t condemn modernism.” Oh really? Our Lady said on May 25, 2010:

“…satan…does not sleep and through ‘modernism’ diverts you and leads you to his way…”

Modernism is not questioned today! It dominates life and reigns over all the earth with no resistance. Even in Africa we hear of people in huts with laptops which ultimately will destroy village life. We, of the Community of Caritas, use advanced technology, we do not let it use us. It is we who dominate it. Modernism is an “it,” not a god, God is not an it, He is “I Am.” To begin a path of correction, the god of modernism is important to detect and comprehend. The mission of Caritas is very high tech. On the other hand, no where in our mission do we have the use of cell phones, nor the internet. That also includes in our homes— no cell phones, no television, no internet, no electronic games, etc. Very few would even know how to make that happen in their lives, even if they wanted to, in this day of modernism which has captured man’s heart. Yet, we do not condemn modernism. We condemn what it has become. It is the cause of the fall of the Kingdom of God in man’s heart, replaced with the new gods of false glitter, false brightness, false idols—the god of modernism. “Clean your heart!” Our Lady says:

August 2, 2005

“…your heart is filled with false glitters and false idols. Cleanse your heart…”

It is amazing to ponder that when Our Lady first appeared in 1981, man’s miracle of the fax machine had not yet been discovered for practical use in every home. Once this technology was made available to the common man, its explosive use was a major player marking the beginning of the future communication and massive technological explosions that includes the development and common use of cell phones, internet, GPS, small personal computers, and a hundred more etceteras. It is extremely noteworthy that Our Lady came just a few short years before the fax machine began the quantum leap of man in the advancement by which he would be consumed. Could Our Lady have waited another 10 or 20 years before appearing and still have captured our hearts as She did in those first 10 foundation and formative years of Her apparitions? Our Lady began Her apparitions in the final seconds of time of man’s history in which She could still reach him. Our Lady even said:

June 25, 1993

“…these times are particular…”

Beginning Her apparitions any later than 1981, would not have resulted in the same foundation that was set in the beginning years in changing the direction of the world. When told in the 1980s of Our Lady’s apparitions, people were astounded. Today when people are told of Our Lady’s apparitions a typical response is: “Really? Hey, American Idol is on tonight.” For many, it is just part of the conversation. For the few who may be astounded today by the news of hearing of Our Lady’s apparitions, it is usually because they have begun to search for meaning in their lives and they are ready for the graces. However, for a large portion of the world’s population, their hearts are deaf to learning about what Our Lady is doing. God, everyday, is doing something incredibly profound, yet it goes unnoticed to the vast majority of the world. God is going to do something in the future to change this.

But is now the time of the antichrist? One could think, “It’s hard to believe the antichrist time is now; this could not be.” However, to understand, contemplate the following questions. Why did God separate man in the city of Babel by stopping their communication through language and dispersing them which prevented their advancement in the building of the Tower of Babel? Was it only the Tower of Babel that they were on the brink of making advancements? The Bible says in Genesis 11:5-6:

“The Lord came down to see the city and the tower that the men had built. Then the Lord said: ‘If now, while they are one people, all started to do this, nothing will later stop them from doing whatever they presume to do.’

God then confused their language so they could not understand each other. They had to stop building and were then scattered across the earth. If they had been allowed to continue, would the age of Babel have birthed a later age of advancement that would have led to the Industrial Revolution millenniums before the one we know of? Physics are physics. The physical dynamics that led to our Industrial Revolution were hidden in Babel’s time, but if Babel was not stopped, could the city’s potential spark an advancement that would lead them to modernism, just as in the pre-medieval period before the Industrial Revolution? The building of the city of Babel can be a lesson for us today. A lesson of Babel breaking from the past century, living the same primitive way and then began to develop the minerals of the earth, through physics and brain power. Man could have, step-by-step, invented and advanced ahead of the time to do as man pleases. Hence, God saw then that if He didn’t stop them, “Nothing will later stop them from doing whatever they presume to do,” just as modern man in today’s culture is doing.

The men of Babel only needed time and more generations to walk on the path they had begun. One could object that this is too far fetched. But one must contemplate that God could have decided only to destroy the city of Babel, but in addition to its destruction, He also changed their languages. This broke down the infrastructure necessary to collaborate with each other, which made it impossible to build a system that would allow them to build and do “whatever they presume to do,” as we ourselves are doing today.

The antichrist time, like Babel, is ready to advance unless interrupted. Like Babel, it is not time for the antichrist system and it is to be torn down. We are the ones chosen in this time to do so. Why? We are the ones called upon to be prophetic witnesses to future generations of how we, through Our Lady, separated from the antichrist system. Those of us who walk with Our Lady in this time will witness to those, who in the future, will live through the great tribulation of the antichrist time. They will learn from us just as we presently learn from Babel. In the future they, the elect, will look back on Our Lady’s time in which we had the messages, Our Lady’s words from Heaven in our mouths and in one hand the Rosary, and in the other we had the Cross.2 St. Louis de Montfort envied those of us who would live in this time of Our Lady, a time in which our witness will be the completeness of what Our Lady did with us, Her apostles in how we carried the cross, for the future elect The future elect will have the witness and testimony of our present response in how we navigated through and spiritually survived the rise and interruption of the antichrist period. This interruption came through Our Lady’s splendor, thereby, setting back the time of the antichrist’s reign to rise later somewhere in the future. This parallels how the rise of the city of Babel was interrupted by destruction, setting back man’s time to do whatever he pleased. But just as the later age of the Industrial Revolution did eventually come, so will the antichrist time recover from Our Lady’s interruption. Her messages will be the most cherished, most endearing thing for those who, in the future, will live through the final time of the antichrist, the great tribulation, when the last star burns out. They will know Our Lady loves them. At the dawn of the beginning of that last time, when the moon shines no more, the people of the earth are going to have the sweetness of Her words and the history of Her triumph to look back on. They will know by our witness “today” how to triumph with Her then for the time when Jesus Christ comes against the antichrist to defeat him and thereby save the elect3 who suffered through the great tribulation and will be saved by Our Lady, the final triumph of Christ over evil forever. In the book of Mark, Chapter 13:19-20, 24-27:

“For in those days there will be such tribulation as has not been from the beginning of the creation which God created until now, and never will be. And if the Lord had not shortened the days, no man would be saved; but for the sake of the elect, whom He chose, He shortened the days…But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then He will send out the angels, and gather His elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of heaven.”

Now, with a better understanding of Our Lady’s apparitions, what are the answers to the original questions at the beginning of this writing to you who are called to be the elect? Why have the apparitions lasted so long and why have there been so many? Remember truth is despised and always opposed. There are many examples of major errors in the heart of man today which could be cited. “Major errors” are defined here as the “crossing of the line” when man reverses what is natural. It is the rejection of natural law and tolerating the breaking of natural law, a disorder of the natural order. When this occurs, God will act to correct man to bring him back to natural law. Never, no never, will God allow crossing the lines of natural law without grave consequences coming our way which will turn man back to abide by natural law, thereby bringing things back to the natural order. This comes through purification. The three admonitions the visionaries speak of in the secrets Our Lady gave to the Medjugorje visionaries will be God’s solution for corrections for the whole world. One example of the violation of natural law follows for those who are open to and will accept truth. For those who are not open, they will reject the following truths.

A special report by Anna Abbott in the April 2011 issue of Catholic World Report states that there are 106 Catholic colleges and universities that are “abominable lifestyle sin” friendly. According to the article, in October 2010, Loyola University in Chicago and the University of Notre Dame hosted degradated and perverted abominable pageants. Students from St. John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota, blatantly go to Mass unashamed in identifying themselves as those who live abomination by wearing a symbol. Notre Dame, when translated from French means “Our Lady.” The University of Notre Dame has instructors who blasphemously speak against Our Lady’s name by promoting and advancing abominable lifestyles in the subjects they teach to students. Many of these students come away open, accepting and defending these satanic theories which are in contradiction to Biblical and Church teachings. Students are cleverly manipulated through instructors not to let Biblical and Church teaching enter into the equation of discerning with clarity, right and wrong. This satanic stench these universities produce is as a deadly radiation to the souls of students who succumb to the father of lies. This poisonous radiation of the heart is far more dangerous to man than if many nuclear power plants melted down. Hiroshima and Nagasaki recovered and re-peopled after the atomic bomb, yet not even one man can recover from the fires of hell. To kill the soul is far more dangerous than to kill the body.

Do not take from this statement that it is being advocated that nuclear radiation caused by a meltdown would not be a terrible disaster. Rather, what is being put forth is that the acceptance, promotion, and tolerance of depraved sin is more of a disaster than if even a nuclear power plant did meltdown. What also is being put forth is a call to reflection about how messed up man’s priorities are. Man’s acceptance of such a depraved sin and his succumbing to the pressure to allow it to be culturalized into our society as acceptable behavior or at least tolerated is a condition far worse for man and civilization than the meltdown of multiple nuclear power plants. Hiroshima rose again, Sodom did not. Souls contaminated with sin that without repentance can be damned for eternity is of little concern to even many who are Christians. Where is the concern for their salvation, much less the understanding that this sin leads to the destruction of all civilizations who accept it? Yet, the level of concern, when only a very small number of individuals of the world’s population are contaminated with radioactive radiation as just happened in Japan, is world news for weeks, even months. Jesus taught do not be concerned with what can kill the body, be concerned with what can kill the soul.

Matthew 10:28

“And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.”

So what does God think of not only the 106 Catholic universities themselves, but the thousands of other secular universities, institutions, civil governments who propagate abominations? Finding the answer to what God thinks is simple. Our Lady says:

February 14, 1985

“…Every family must …read the Bible!...”

Many Catholic university instructors reject what is written in the Bible. We can read the Bible, and read God’s answer. It is clear and simple.

Genesis 19:24-28

Then the Lord rained on Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of Heaven…But Lot’s wife behind him looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. And Abraham went early in the morning…and he looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah…and beheld and behold, the smoke of the land went up like the smoke of a furnace.

Don’t say this is Old Testament ‘stuff’ to be disregarded. St. Peter in 2 Peter 2:6 wrote about and referred to it in the New Testament as applying it to the godless today.

“…He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah [to destruction], reducing them to ashes, making them an example for the godless [people] of what is coming…”

There is your answer. These universities are history. They have no future. Our Lady said on June 25, 1991:

“…read the Sacred Scriptures so that through my coming you discover the message in Sacred Scripture for you…”

In the New Testament, Romans 1:32:

“Although they know the just decree of God that all who practice such things [abominations] deserve death, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.”

The above is New Testament. The future of culture, the future of institutions which approve, accept and propagate such depravities is one of abandonment. They will become vast wastelands in the future that will serve as examples of what happens when not only you abandon God, but when you keep up a pretext that you are counted as Christian, as these Catholic colleges falsely portray. As Peter says, it is:

“…an example for the godless [people] of what is coming…” 2 Peter 2:6

One may respond, “But there are good people, good Catholics at these universities.” This doesn’t make what the universities do acceptable any more than the few good people in Sodom who God told to “leave the city.” They were reluctant to leave and wanted to wait. The angel who led them told them no.

Genesis 19:15-16

“As dawn was breaking, the angels urged Lot on, saying, ‘On your way! Take with you your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away in the punishment of the city.’ When he hesitated, the men, by the Lord’s mercy, seized his hand and the hands of his wife and his two daughters and led them to safety outside the city.”

A whole glass of water is poisoned by a drop of arsenic. The universities have accepted and tolerated on their grounds much more than just a drop of arsenic. The abandonment of the universities will be the same as what the Christians witnessed when the Roman coliseum was abandoned. It fell into disarray and was pillaged. Some who graduated from one of these universities may have sentiments of “I want to save my alma mater, it is a great university.” Great? God is Great. Therefore, what is of God is great. When an institution abandons God, it abandons its greatness and is worthless. Our Lady said:

September 2, 2006

“…God is great. Great are His works…”

These great universities, His works?? “Save my alma mater” is the same sentiment that Abraham had for the city Sodom. God not only destroyed it, He told Abraham and Lot, do not even look back. In other words, do not long for Sodom; you are coming to a new place, a new time. Jesus’ sentiments for His own temple are shown when He predicted it would be torn down. The great temple! The wonder of the world! The temple priests had abandoned God. Truth is hated by the world. They rejected truth. But biblical history shows to reject truth has devastating consequences. The temple priests thought they had killed the truth when they killed Jesus, His body—but, the Temple rose again in three days. Later, the stone temple, the great wonder, was struck and torn down and never rose again because of the sin of those who had rejected truth.


It will not, it cannot, it is impossible for Our Lady’s thirty years of apparitions to co-exist in tolerance with the teaching and promotion of demonic laws against nature without a total destruction of those vessels of hell which propagate abomination. This will also include many other violations of the natural order. Those sins will cause the destruction of cultures as we now know them. Can those places where hell abounds be redeemed? No more than hell itself can be redeemed. Those promoters of abominations against the Commandments of God must be purified. While salvation for individuals, no matter what one has done, can be gained through repentance and with a change of the direction of one’s life, these bodies of iniquities, be they universities, societies and cultures, the courts, etc., will eventually be punished in this life because they have no soul that will pass onto eternity. George Mason, one of the founding fathers of the United States said:

“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.”

Be it known that whether we are speaking about institutions, governments, or even different elements within the Church, a cataclysmic confrontation is converging at a crossroad that will cause a clash of such proportions, it will result in a great singular victory, a victory in which only one side will prevail. That one will be a triumph of purity and holiness in such numbers as the world has never seen, a victory through love and obedience to the Father, led by purity Herself. At the same time, one should not forget we are living in New Testament times, and an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth is no longer applied to the sinner. For New Testament times, that judgment is reserved for God, and for a Christian to punish with the idea that he will carry out an infliction in the spirit of Sodom’s destruction, is in conflict with Jesus’ mercy and forgiveness. Yet, God is mercy and justice. We mostly experience God’s mercy in this life. On the other side of death’s door, we experience His full justice. But this is where many Christians become confused. They let mercy and forgiveness lead to tolerance. The Christian has every right to object, to be indignant, and pass laws against abominations and lifestyles which are intended to bring public acceptance of such. When we get our hearts right, God Himself will purify those institutional bodies which have no souls, and will purify peoples and cultures through calamities, abandonment and even destruction by giving them over to themselves. Yes, any group of people can change, as those who lived in the city of Nineveh, but wickedness is at a point that God is intervening in the world for the last great intervention. The great Physician has prescribed medicine which is His Mother, invested with full authority as Queen, to leave Heaven everyday in Her glorified, resurrected body to bless everyone on earth. For 30 years, every single day for 10,950 days4, as of June 25, 2011, A.D. Our Lady’s daily blessing is exorcistic in its power, to not only purify the Church bringing to light scandals and errors, but to call the whole world to conversion, one flock gathering under the mantle of the Holy Virgin Mary who will present this united flock to Her Son, Jesus Christ who will bring renewal to the Church, the Church led by the Great Shepherd, the Vicar of Jesus. The gates of hell will rattle so hard in an effort to burst open against the Church the Vicar leads that even the elect may wonder will hell prevail, despite the Word’s promise that the gates of hell will not prevail against the Holy Church. Jesus said in Matthew 16:18:

“And I say to you, you are Peter and upon this rock I will build my Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

God sends Our Lady in fulfilling this promise that hell will not prevail against it. Pope John Paul II understood that today’s world is on the brink of falling into an abyss. So severe are the consequences we are facing that he consecrated and entrusted the next 1,000 years to Our Lady on October 8, 2000, A.D. He did this with the largest gathering of the world’s bishops at the Vatican since the Second Vatican Council. There were 1,156 Bishops and 80 Cardinals present5. Others joined in worldwide. John Paul II prayed prophetically of the future:

“…Man now has instruments of unprecedented power: we can turn this world into a garden, or reduce it to a pile of rubble. We have devised the astounding capacity to intervene in the very wellsprings of life: man can use this power for good, within the bounds of the moral law, or he can succumb to the shortsighted pride of a science which accepts no limits, but tramples on the respect due to every man. Today as never before in the past, man stands at a crossroad…”

Our Lady Herself has said, “Today…as never before!” several times in Her messages. John Paul II echoes the words of Our Lady. As never before? That means something as never before, since the beginning of the world. We are living in a time as never before. Our Lady said:

September 25, 1991

“…‘Now’ as never before satan wants to show the world his shameful face by which he wants to seduce as many people as possible onto the way of death and sin…”

How close we are to “the crossroad,” manifested shortly after John Paul II’s statement. Not long after the world changed direction more radically. The words “man stands at a crossroad,” quickly began to become clearer and clearer, a self-fulfilling prophecy unless man would accept limits and thereby live by natural law and be saved. Eighty-three days after John Paul’s pronouncement of, “man stands at a crossroad” in which we are faced with destruction, the prophetic nature of his statement was seen starkly when Medjugorje visionary, Marija, was on the mountain in the cold of night on the first day of the new millennium. On January 1, 2001, at 10:30 p.m., Our Lady gave a stunning message through Marija. Our Lady revealed:

January 1, 2001

“My dear children, now that when satan is unchained, I desire you to be consecrated to My Heart and the Heart of My Son Jesus…”

Unchained? Nine months after the above message was given, the unleashing of hatred spilled out of hell’s gates into the world on September 11, 2001, or as it is called today, 9116. The attack on the World Trade Center was a physical sign of the manifestation of satan being unchained. Immediately thereafter, a series of events unfolded further showing this manifestation. Not only did John Paul II make his statement, on October 8, 2000, that “man stands at a crossroad” and 83 days later Our Lady’s warning that “satan is unchained,” and nine months later a manifestation of exponential growth of hatred on 911 being spewed out across the whole world, all was astoundingly confirmed by Our Lady only 14 days after the 911 World Trade Center attack by a message of Our Lady addressing the whole world:

September 25, 2001

“…today I call you to prayer, especially today when satan wants war and hatred…do not be afraid because the one who prays is not afraid of evil and has no hatred in the heart…”

From John Paul II’s October 8, 2000, entrustment and his “man is at a crossroads” statement, to Our Lady’s January 2, 2001, message where satan was “unchained,” to September 11, 2001 known as 911, to Our Lady’s September 25, 2001, message stating satan wants war and hatred, we can easily see prophecy unfold right before our eyes. God does what Scripture says God does. He is so merciful that when His children go astray, He will correct as a good father would. Many mistakenly interpret the slow-to-act time frame of God’s correction as God’s tolerance of sin because after decades of persistent sin and rebellion, man, who at first expected punishment then sees none, begins to believe there are no consequences to his sins. But Our Lady said:

June 24, 1983

“…You cannot imagine what is going to happen nor what the Eternal Father will send to earth…”

God is slow to anger and gives every opportunity for man to come back in obedience. But we are seeing His last attempt to reach us through Our Lady. The last. If you resist Our Lady and do not accept Her and all that She says, yet expect it will go well for you, it will not.

March 21, 1985

“…accept me, dear children, that it might go well with you…”

Noah's Ark

Noah’s Ark: Thousands of years ago, God commanded Noah to build a giant Ark large enough to house two creatures of every kind for an extended amount of time. God gave His instructions without giving Noah the full details of what he could expect in terms of the way everything would unfold in the future. Noah was asked to trust in God. Our Lady comes in our day, sent also by God, to save the world. She is the Ark of our time. She untiringly invites us to gather under Her mantle for Her protection as She leads us into a new time, a time, She once said, where we will get to know God better.

To accept Our Lady is to accept truth. To accept truth is to accept Her messages. To accept her messages is to incorporate them in every part of our lives. We must realize all sin in our lives and in the culture is at a level that must be confronted while we are living in this time of grace. Our Lady is our opportunity, opening the door for us to confront our sinfulness through Her call to seek forgiveness. We can wait or we can do so ourselves at Our Lady’s invitation now, in this time of grace, and let Her purify us. Through answering Her invitation now it will go much better for us. But for those who wait, Our Lady has told us admonitions are coming. We can not escape purification, even with prayer, we can only lessen it. Our Lady has said we can mitigate the severity of what is coming.

November 6, 1982

“I have prayed; the punishment has been softened. Repeated prayers and fasting reduce punishments from God, but it is not possible to avoid entirely the chastisement. Go on the streets of the city, count those who glorify God and those who offend Him. God can no longer endure that.”

It is not acceptable for sin to prevail in our hearts. When and if it does, we must confess and repent to experience renewal of our hearts and revival. Just the same, we cannot accept sin to prevail in the culture. We are all sinners and fall short. When we live righteously—and righteous living also means recognizing our sins and confessing them when we fail—we have not only the right but the duty to impose in the culture on every level of society, the enforcement of moral and natural law. We do not need permission. We do not have to vote it in. Natural law is the base building block of civilization which holds it together. Why is murder wrong in every culture? Because it is natural law understood in man’s heart; the commandment of God indelibly marked in the heart. It does not mean man will not violate this law, but still murder is always wrong in any culture. The conscience tells even those who perform abortions that it is murder until they perform so many that their conscience dies. Just as murder is not accepted, neither can other behaviors be accepted in the culture that destroys the culture, such as the example cited of abominable lifestyles and other sins. One does not love the sinner by tolerating sin. One loves the sinner when one fosters a culture that is held within moral boundaries and by witnessing obedience to natural law influencing civil law. It is not acceptable for these boundaries to be crossed or be tolerant of those whose actions do cross the natural law.

When man lives by God’s law, he is powered by good. This good then can overtake that which satan claims. We must live in freedom with self imposed limits in what and how we live and in what we accept, both in the Church and in secular society. As John Paul II stated:

“…man can use this power of good, within the bounds of the moral law…”

We are not within the bounds of the moral law—not our culture, nor many aspects within our own membership of the Church. We indeed are at a crossroads. When you pray, you will begin to comprehend that we have gone beyond the bounds of moral law throughout the culture and within elements of the Church as well. You will then understand what is happening when we start seeing actions of God unfold. We have entered a time we can identify as “God come back time.” Throughout history we have seen that when man goes astray and moves beyond the moral boundaries, it is not “maybe” God will act, it is “God will act.”

Understanding of the following did not come without decades of prayer preceding it, nor will it be understood without prayer and reflection. Pause and pray. Read slowly the following three events that will unfold in the future. Meditate on them. Read them a second, even a third time – and later continue to mediate on them.

We will see three very important things happen in the future.

1.There will be a great moment of radical conversion all across the earth.

2. There will be a great division of man across all the earth.


3. For the converted, one’s sole focus in life will be the conversion of the pagan.

The first event of instant radical conversion will come through an extraordinary grace granted because of the years of Our Lady praying and Her constant intercession before God’s throne. This grace will be released and sweep as a tsunami across the world. The world will be given knowledge of God, will experience His love, and will be given an invitation to give oneself over to Him. From the depraved reprobate to the elect, all will be confronted with the true reality of God which will correct man’s faulty beliefs about God and what man believes God to be.

The second event will be a separation between those who accept God in the light of Truth and those who reject the irrefutable graces in favor of being lovers of vice, sin, hate, etc.

Thirdly, nothing in the lives of the converted will supercede the urge, the yearning, the unquenchable desire to convert the remaining pagans, even those who will call themselves Christians, but who will still cling to pagan ways. They may be among our families or those who are enemies to Christ and His followers. You will be consumed by this fire in your heart to witness and convert the heathens, even at the cost of your life. Our Lady therefore said,

April 2, 2010

“…Be ready…”

What is important in this time…this period of an interval…is to accept everything Our Lady schools us in. Her words are the only theology one needs to navigate through to the future. When these apparitions are completed, the message will be in fullness, the most God can give through private revelation, to bring alive in us public revelation in helping us to incorporate the Word into every moment of life. The Word will revive in us when Our Lady’s words will be transformed into every moment of our lives. Our Lady said:

December 25, 1989

“…read everyday the messages I gave you and transform them into life…”

Why? Because these messages are for today’s man to help him understand the Bible—Biblical truths that many Christians shut their eyes to. Our Lady said:

November 2, 2006

“Dear children! My coming to you, my children, is God’s love. God is sending me to warn you and to show you the right way. Do not shut your eyes before the truth, my children. Your time is a short time. Do not permit delusions to begin to rule over you. The way on which I desire to lead you is the way of peace and love. This is the way which leads to my Son, your God. Give me your hearts that I may put my Son in them and make my apostles of you, apostles of peace and love. Thank you!”

It is why Our Lady will never again come back to earth, as now, the fullness of Fatima and Medjugorje type apparitions are being manifested. These six visionaries can see Our Lady, touch Our Lady, and can speak back and forth freely with Our Lady in an exchanged conversation. Never again will these types of apparitions come again to the earth. They are the last.

May 2, 1982

“I have come to call the world to conversion for the last time. Afterwards, I will not appear any more on this earth.”

These apparitions, therefore, are the final ones, they are the most important, they are all that man will ever need to come to know and to witness Jesus Christ to the world. These events prepare us and lead us somewhere into the future where the numbers who are to populate Heaven will be complete. After that, numbers of which only God knows, not a single baby or man will ever be added. Heaven will be closed forever in eternity, the trial will be over. Be it one hundred or five hundred years from now, we are living the last heroic chapters of salvation which will be written in the book read throughout all eternity. A book of the latter days of salvation’s history of the souls who despite great resistance, heroically responded to the Queen of Heaven when She walked the earth. Do not hesitate. Do not wait for the sign.7 Go down on your knees now. Cry out in repentance. Repentance should always and every day be the first step in reviving the soul, which is the first step towards the revival of all the world. Do not mourn. Do not look back as Lot’s wife did. Look out to the future. It is one of the greatest hopes for those who are believers and those who become believers. There is no one on earth who Our Lady does not love. There is no one, no matter how wicked, that Our Lady rejects. Our Lady desires to be your mother and calls you to live God’s Commandments and to be true before God in your very life. Our Lady will do everything to save. She said on March 2, 2007:

“Today I will speak to you about what you have forgotten:

“Dear children, My name is Love. That I am among you for so much of your time is love, because the Great Love sends me. I am asking the same of you. I am asking for love in your families. I am asking that you recognize love in your brother. Only in this way, through love, will you see the face of the Greatest Love. May fasting and prayer be your guiding star. Open your hearts to love, namely, salvation. Thank you.”

All you have to do is go on your knees, shed a tear of repentance, ask for strength to change everything not of God in your life and love Her, love Her, love Her. This applies to the believer and the non-believer, and also the reprobate, no matter your past.

Thirty years of apparitions—Our Lady has something to say to you. Beloved children, do not leave this writing without immediately pausing and closing your eyes in reflection. Think. Meditate. Listen to see what Our Lady has to say to you. Ask Her to speak to your heart. Loving Her is to give her some time to listen to Her.

Be still Be quiet Listen

In the Love of Our Lady,

A Friend of Medjugorje

The two following messages by Our Lady were given after the “Thirty Years of Apparitions” was written by A Friend of Medjugorje. The words are clear about where the world is headed.

May 2, 2011

“Dear children; God the Father is sending me to show you the way of salvation, because He, my children, desires to save you and not to condemn you. That is why I, as a mother, am gathering you around me, because with my motherly love I desire to help you to be free of the dirtiness of the past and to begin to live anew and differently. I am calling you to resurrect in my Son. Along with confession of sins renounce everything that has distanced you from my Son and that has made your life empty and unsuccessful. Say ‘yes’ to the Father with the heart and set out on the way of salvation to which He is calling you through the Holy Spirit. Thank you. I am especially praying for the shepherds, for God to help them to be alongside you with a fullness of heart.”

June 2, 2011

“Dear children! As I call you to prayer for those who have not come to know the love of God, if you were to look into your hearts you would comprehend that I am speaking about many of you. With an open heart, sincerely ask yourselves if you want the living God or do you want to eliminate Him and live as you want. Look around you, my children, and see where the world is going, the world that thinks of doing everything without the Father, and which wanders in the darkness of temptation. I am offering to you the light of the Truth and the Holy Spirit. According to God’s plan I am with you to help you to have my Son, His Cross and Resurrection, triumph in your hearts. As a mother, I desire and pray for your unity with my Son and His works. I am here; you decide. Thank you.”


Footnotes:

1. A phrase termed by a Friend of Medjugorje labeling satan’s decades of work in corrupting man without man’s awareness that satan drives him on.

2. St. Louis de Montfort said those who follow Our Lady in the latter days “shall have in their mouths the two-edged sword of the Word of God. They shall carry on their shouldlers the bloody standard of the Cross, the Crucifix in their right hand and the Rosary in their left, the sacred Names of Jesus and Mary in their hearts, and the modesty and mortification of Jesus Christ in their own behavior. These are the great men who are to come; but Mary is the one who, by order of the Most High, shall fashion them for the purpose of extending His empire over that of the impious, the idolaters and the Mahometans.” (Muslims) St. Louis de Montfort longed to stand where you stand today. He ended his discourse by saying, “As for us, we have but to hold our tongues, to pray, to sigh and to wait: “With expectation I have waited.”

3. The elect defined: one chosen or set apart; applied to Christ, chosen; selected; set apart as a particular church or people

4. The number is much higher as for the last 20 years or more the six visionaries have not been together for their apparitions. They have separate apparitions, so the numbers of apparitions can almost be tripled as Marija, Vicka, and Ivan still have daily apparitions as of June 25, 2011, A.D.

5. A Friend of Medjugorje was present, sitting just behind the bishops on the altar. He, with his wife and son and Medjugorje visionary, Marija Lunetti, witnessed the great moment together. In the apparition the evening before, Our Lady said to Marija that She would be present during the time of the consecration. They physically counted the numbers of bishops and cardinals present that day as they understood the magnitude and importance of this event and felt the numbers should be recorded for history.

6. The “9” being for the 9th month, September, and the “11” being for the date, hence, it is called 911 which all across the U.S.A. is an emergency phone number for any and all emergencies, police, fire, medical.

7. Our Lady revealed to the six visionaries of Medjugorje that She will leave a sign on Apparition Mountain in Medjugorje that will be permanent and indestructible to prove that She was truly present in these apparitions. The visionaries know when and where this sign will appear. It will last until the end of time. No armament will be able to destroy it. It will be apparent it is of supernatural origin. The sign is one of the 10 secrets given to the visionaries by Our Lady who has said that it is important to convert now and not to wait for the sign. Our Lady said on December 15, 1982: “…Hurry to be converted. Do not wait for the great sign. For the unbelievers, it will then be too late to be converted…”
