Excerpt from Marija Lunetti’s Talk in Medjugorje June 23, 2009


All you who have been invited to come here to Medjugorje are invited to go to Confession. Through Holy Confession Our Lady invited us to attend Holy Mass. And without Confession, we are not ready to attend Holy Mass. There are many people who think that instead of attending Holy Mass they can instead visit somebody who is lonely or sick, or maybe do good deeds, but Our Lady says you cannot exchange with anything the Holy Mass. Holy Mass must be in the first place in your lives and, if it is possible, Our Lady wants us to attend Holy Mass everyday. I recall what the first Christians said: “Without Holy Mass it is impossible to live.” So Our Lady wants us to attend Holy Mass and to let the Holy Spirit guide us so that afterwards we are able to do good deeds.

A large crowd with pilgrims from all over the world gathers two days before Our Lady’s 28th anniversary in Medjugorje to listen to Marija Lunetti, one of the six visionaries. Marija shared Our Lady’s messages, encouraging everyone to put them into practice in their everyday life.

 


The weather these days in Medjugorje as the Anniversary of the Apparitions approaches has been unusually rainy and cold. Even Marija commented that she doesn’t remember ever having such weather for the anniversary before. People are walking around in wet shoes and clothing as there is not opportunity to have them dry. Even during the day it has been cool. Yet, this evening, June 23, 2009, even though the weather forecast called for more rain, the clouds dispersed and the sun shone brightly again.


As we prepare our hearts to celebrate the 28th Anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions, we repeat a beautiful message Our Lady gave in June of 1989, just before the anniversary, knowing that Our Lady shares the same sentiments now with us as She did then. May it be an impulse for you to give more of yourselves in prayer and sacrifice in these special days of grace.

 

June 6, 1989

"Dear children, the Mother is happy to be with all of you. Dear children, you have helped me to realize the plans of God. I want to speak to you about love and give you love. In these days, prepare yourselves for the anniversary of the apparitions with love, with my messages, and with joy and the Mother will help you, dear children, and the Mother will stay with you. There is nothing more important for you but to put what I have said in first place."
