On October 6, 1986, a question was presented to Our Lady by the founder of Caritas, through Medjugorje visionary Marija in Medjugorje. The question asked whether the same conversions taking place in Medjugorje could take place here* and be Divinely spread throughout the whole region. Our Lady gave a response in the affirmative saying:

 

"Pray and by your life witness. Not with words but rather through prayer will you attain what your desire is. Therefore, pray more and live in humility."
 

Two years later, Our Lady would begin to physically answer the question, when through a series of Heavenly orchestrated events, led visionary Marija to the home of the founder of Caritas and his wife. Our Lady appeared to Marija, always very happy, and giving messages almost every day from the Bedroom of Apparitions in the home. Appearing in the Bedroom was Our Lady’s choice. Thousands would gather in a nearby field to pray while Our Lady appeared to Marija in the home. Our Lady chose to appear in the Field only one time, November 24, 1988, Thanksgiving Day, an American day of thanksgiving for God’s blessings. The field became known as the Field of Apparitions. Preceding the apparitions in his home, the founder had always prayed fervently for the healing of this nation, and during the time that Our Lady was with them, Our Lady’s actions of choosing to appear in the home gave him an understanding that Our Lady was stating that conversion of the nation would take place through the conversion of the family. The Bedroom of Apparitions became a place representing the family, and the Field represented the nation.
 


These apparitions that took place to Marija was a catalyst to what Our Lady would inspire later for the conversion of this nation.
 
 

We have stated the above many times, but in light of this week’s feasts coming up, it is important to gain a clearer understanding of Our Lady’s plan and how we can participate in it. What feasts are we referring to and how are they connected?
 
 

The following was taken from “20 Years of Apparitions,” written by a Friend of Medjugorje:



“…On October 7, 1571, Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, the mighty Turkish fleet towered over by comparison the much smaller Christian fleet. Defeat was imminent, and with the fleet destroyed, nothing stood between the Turks and the conquest of all of Europe. Pope Pius V desperately launched a crusade to unite all of Christendom in praying Rosaries. Meanwhile, with no chance of defeating the Turks, the Christian fleet attacked the Turks. With the battle cry “Long Live Mary!,” twenty-four year old Admiral Andrea Dorin went head long into battle. When he realized he had lost and with it, all of Europe, he suddenly ran into his cabin flung himself on the floor in front of an Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, pleading and begging Her help. At that very moment, the wind 1 suddenly changed and the Turks were thrown into chaos. As the desperate battle raged on, the Pope in Rome saw a vision of Mary spreading Her mantle over the Catholic soldiers and sailors. With all odds against the Christians, they instead inflicted total defeat upon the Turks and saved Europe from the Turks’ conquest…”



So what feast days coming up are we referring to?
 
 

October 6: Our Lady responds in the affirmative, that the same conversions taking place in Medjugorje could happen here and be ‘divinely spread throughout the whole region.’
 

October 7: The Feast of the Holy Rosary, where Our Lady answered the call for the protection of an entire continent, bringing victory when there was no prospect of it.



It is appropriate at this time in history, that we honor these days dedicated to Our Lady, these two feasts wedded together for the conversion and protection of our land. Your action plan for these days:
 
 

Sunday October 6: Gather your family in your family bedroom, to pray the Consecration of the Family (see prayers below)

Our Lady in Medjugorje said on February 2, 1990:

“…Take your Rosary and get your children, your families with you. This is the way to come to salvation…”



Monday October 7:
Gather your family and pray the Patriotic Rosary, asking Our Lady’s intercession on behalf of this nation

Our Lady in Medjugorje said on January 25, 1991:

“…God sent me to you so that I can help you. If you wish to, grasp for the Rosary. Already, the Rosary alone can do miracles in the world and in your lives…”




We are, today in a fight for our survival as a nation, as a culture and as a people. The rest of the world is in need of our survival. As the young admiral did in the story above, let us fling ourselves before Our Lady and beg Her help. We need more than ever the intercession of Our Lady and the blessings that She imparted from here during Her apparitions to Medjugorje visionary Marija at Caritas, the millions of prayers that have been offered for this nation.



This Sunday, take your Rosary and get your children, your families with you, pray for Our Lady’s protection on your family through the Consecration of the Family. Then on Monday, October 7, take your Rosary and get your children, your families with you, and pray the Patriotic Rosary together, asking Her intercession for yourself, your family and for this nation.



Sunday, October 6, the Community of Caritas will be praying the Family Consecration in the Bedroom of Apparitions on your behalf, and on Monday, October 7, the Community will be praying the Patriotic Rosary in the Field of Apparitions. As we walk these consequential days together, let us say, not with our mouths but with our lives, Long Live Mary in our families and nation!

Family Consecration Prayer


This Prayer was first prayed by Marija in June, 1987, in the presence of the married couples who were part of Caritas of Birmingham pilgrimage. The couples wanted to renew their wedding vows in Medjugorje and at the request of our founder, Marija interceded for them to Our Lord through this spontaneous prayer. When the young Croatian guide, who happened to be Muslim, translated the prayer into English, she was so moved by Marija’s words and her deep spirit of prayer, that she began to weep.


Marija’s words on Consecration:


I shall recommend all of you to the Blessed Virgin. I want each of you to start livingnew life so that each of you will become Our Lady’s witnesses and that you will take this consecration seriously. Our Lady says that every family is likesmall church. You have to grow spiritually, but it is impossible for an individual to grow spiritually. We have to grow together in our holiness and in that way we shall become united and unity is what Our Lady wants. Our Lady always says that it is very important for us to set an example by our way of living for one another and that is the way we shall show one another the way to holiness. God bless you.

My Lord, I plead You tonight for my family. I plead You to bless us, to take care of us and to show us which way leads to salvation. My God, it is Your will that every single one of us will be changed, that our lives may become Your life; and tonight, my God, I am giving my family to You and I plead You, You embrace us and lead us, because You can do everything, You are Almighty. From this night on, I am giving my family to You and I plead You, give us Your blessing tonight because we are not strong enough to carry our burden alone, and I plead You my Lord, set us free from other ways but Yours. Let us be turned only towards You, towards Your will. Let us do only what You would like us to do. Let us always search for Your will; and I plead You, my Lord Jesus, give my family Your blessing tonight. Amen.

By no means are we intending to pre-empt the Church on the validity of the Apparitions. They are private revelation awaiting the Church’s judgment. Because the Queen of Peace Apparitions are ongoing and not yet over, the Church has yet to rule on their authenticity. Caritas of Birmingham, the Community of Caritas, and all associated with them, realize and accept that the final authority regarding the Queen of Peace Medjugorje Apparitions rests with the Holy See in Rome. We at Caritas willingly submit to that judgment. Caritas of Birmingham, the Community of Caritas and its mission are not connected to the Diocese of Birmingham, Alabama. The Diocese of Birmingham’s official position on Caritas is neutral and holds us as Catholics in good standing.

1. Our Lady said on February 15, 1984 in Medjugorje:

“The wind is my sign. I will come in the wind. When the wind blows, know that I am with you. You have learned that the cross represents Christ; it is a sign of Him. It is the same for the Crucifix you have in your home. For me, it is not the same. When it is cold, you come to church; you want to offer everything to God. I am, then, with you. I am with you in the wind. Do not be afraid.”

This message is inscribed on the altar in the Field of Apparitions at Caritas, where millions of prayers have been prayed for the healing of the nation.
