Dear Followers of Our Lady,


In light of Our Lady’s short February 25, 2008 monthly message, it can be easy to gloss over the significance of Her words. But we must ask ourselves the following:


How much attention are you giving to Our Lady and of what She is informing us? How much of your time do you give to the news the world gives? How much time do your activities consume? How important is the news of the day, television, newspapers, school activities, entertainment, pleasures, projects, or your work compared to Our Lady’s call? Some may think, “Oh! But all these things are so important.” If one comprehends God’s plans, it is Our Lady’s call that is of primary importance. The world has clouded our reasoning. Our Lady said:


October 25, 2006

“…You are not conscious, little children, that God is giving yougreat opportunity to convert and to live in peace and love. You are so blind and attached to earthly things and think of earthly life…”
 

Do these other voices and activities drown out Our Lady’s call to you? Pause formoment; think; clear yourself of all distractions; be frank with yourself; be honest before God. Is Our Lady’s call above the others? Her call is noted by Her at the end of almost every message. “Thank you for having responded to ‘my call.’” What is“call?” Webster defines call as:


Call: to utter inloud voice; to command or request; to come to; get in touch with; to attract or lure; to demand payment; to name, summons to an office, or duty; halt; to speak loudly as to attract attention; to shout; cry; a communication;musical signal; a short visit.


All of the above applies to Our Lady’s call. It is Her voice which we must allow to be the loudest in our lives. In giving our attention to Her requests, and sometimes commands, we are to come to Her when She tries to get in touch with us through Her call. Her beauty, Her holiness, is to attract us and lure us to Her way. She asks for payment of prayer and renunciation, naming Her children “little children,” summoning us to the office of apostleship as our Christian duty and to halt sin. Her shout is the call for the whole world,cry of communication for the Christian Church to be Christian, and thereby Christianize the whole world! Each day is Her sweet call;call Marija describes asvoice which is musical in the way she hears it. Her short visit, at apparition time, summons us to receivebenediction for every man upon the earth. That urgent call is because the world is indesperate situation. Our Lady told Jakov, one of the six visionaries, on October 8, 1984:
 

“...the world is immersed ingreat moral decay...”
 

If Our Lady’s call is not primary in your life, other voices will be louder. You will neither hear nor comprehend what She is saying and doing. Our Lady is calling that you hear not the negatives of the world, not the problems of the world, but the good of God to change the world; the solutions to problems, not just the presentation of them as the evening news does. Our Lady says She is impatient for what we hear from Her call is the solution.


“Dear children!...Pray for peace so that as soon as possibletime of peace, which my heart waits impatiently for, may reign.” June 25, 1995
 

The world needs healing, no one questions that, even many non-believers. But it is Our Lady whose call reveals to us what kind of healing it needs. No other news source, no other voice can we have as much confidence in as Hers. It is not theory or opinion, but Her call, Her words from Heaven.


“...the world is in need of healing of faith in God the Creator.” March 25, 1997
 

Let us as Christians listen to Her words always, and never forget that this istime of grace.


In the Love of Our Lady,
In the Time of Grace,


Friend of Medjugorje
