On January 2, 2015, Our Lady said through Mirjana:

“My children, I will make use of you, apostles of love, to help all of my children to come to know the truth…”

What does it mean that Our Lady will “make use” of us? Does this not sound so beautiful?

(Medjugorje photo taken in 1990) - In this photo taken by a Friend of Medjugorje in 1990, two goats graze on Apparition Mountain. This simple Cross was replaced by Korean pilgrims in 2001. As we look this week to the earlier days of Medjugorje, we remember the simplicity of those times. The same is true for each person. With each passing day, it seems life is more and more complicated and one often finds themselves longing for the simpler days. But, were those times better?

Is it not a beautiful thing to be used by Our Lady? What one may think about this before setting out, is tested in how life turns out. A Friend of Medjugorje shares more:

Our Lady has come to wash the world and cleanse it with the Blood and water of the Lamb. We are the fortunate recipients of this grace, in this time of grace, to be apostles. To be an apostle is to expect trials, temptation, persecution and every difficulty you never experienced before answering Our Lady’s call. The constant striving for conversion must be relentless. We will do well to grasp what is expected of us and make sincere attempts to draw closer to the divine light where we will find the refuge of the fullness of consolation.

We learn from a Friend of Medjugorje’s words that in order for Our Lady to use us, She has to make us a reliable witness. If Our Lady will use us to help others know the truth, as in the January 2, 2015, message quoted above, that means we have to be the first to know the truth, whether in our own sinful lives, or in the society around us. We know a Friend of Medjugorje’s words about this are true and reliable. Anyone who tells you otherwise, or promises another way, does not know what they are talking about. To be made use of, is a searching and painful journey to “re-think” the world around us, but, as a Friend of Medjugorje shares, the fullness of consolation is our refuge, as well as divine light.
