“What takes place in the home has an important effect upon the whole world. If homes become unstable, the whole of society will also.”1

- A Friend of Medjugorje


Our Lady of Medjugorje said on October 25, 2017:


“…You all have problems, afflictions, sufferings and lack of peace…”


Problems, affliction and suffering cannot be avoided. It is how we deal with them that determines our happiness and peace. No place is this truer than in the home.



Kids playing outside St. James Church in Medjugorje

Two young “pilgrims” in Medjugorje, outside St. James Church. The exposure to prayer and a life of holiness, more than preaching is the witness that helps children choose for God or against Him.



Our Lady of Medjugorje, when once asked about a young man who disappeared from home for a week, said:



March 8, 1982


“He left because of many troubles. He himself created some of the problems.”



In a truly wise statement, Our Lady acknowledges the trouble in the home, yet does not excuse the 16-year old boy for causing some of the problems. What happens in the home effects the whole of society. A society of broken homes results in a broken society. Today, for example, marks the 50th anniversary, in which abortion was made legal in Great Britain, claiming the lives of 8 million babies. However, abortion, which is a great evil, is a symptom of yet another problem which begins in the home. Our Lady has come to show us that the healing of the home will result in a healing of society, as a Friend of Medjugorje wrote many years ago:



“A house is an empty place built for people to stay in. A home is spiritual, a place in which you live that is sacred, a place that must be created.”2



As we continue towards Christmas, just 2 months away, meditate on creating out of your house, a home. Then great evils like abortion and a host of other societal ills will begin to be healed as well.
