“May the measure of your [way of] living be love and do not forget, little children, that prayer and fasting work miracles in you and around you…”

Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje, September 25, 2020

We have gone through this 9-day fast together, joined with almost 600 people across the world, united in our hearts for Our Lady’s intentions for our Nation and the world, that miracles could take place.

(Caritas photo, October 13, 2020, 8:31 AM ) - The Field of Apparitions, on the beautiful morning of the last day of the 9-day fast. Our Lady said in 1988, from this spot, that She would intercede before God for all our intentions. Next week, we will be joined by pilgrims who are a part of the pilgrimage to Caritas. Every day, from here, we will be lifting everyone up in prayer during the daily Rosary.

We continued to hear from people even yesterday, who started the fast late, or who did the 9-day fast, but, because they were not sure they could make it, did not sign up. We also heard from people who had no idea how they could possibly make it, yet, were surprised that they did. Below are a few of your letters, which continue to pour in:

“This is the end of my nine day fast. I prepared for this and prayed for the ability to complete the fast. I am 68 years old, blessed with good health and I will say have unbelievably easy this was. I have felt very good the entire time. I am totally amazed how quickly the time went. I will also declare that I felt the hand of Our Lady and the Holy Spirit during this time in making some very important financial decisions and felt that I was saved from a near-fatal automobile accident. I unintentionally put myself in grave danger while driving with 2 of my grandchildren and truly believe it was divine intervention that protected us from being run over. I will cherish this time & the Novena and plan to do a day of fasting on a weekly basis for Peace and Our Lady's wishes/plans and defeating satan in the future. Thank you to Caritas for this opportunity. I was blessed to visit the Caritas Community this summer and it has changed my life.”

“Dear Caritas, As I get up this morning excited to have my first cup of coffee in 9 days I can’t help but feel such gratitude for the community at Caritas and A Friend of Medjugorje. I have done the 9 day fast a few times before but have “cheated” with a cup of coffee or tea or maybe even a sweet muffin But this time was able to stay completely committed to a total bread and water fast for Our Lady. The graces abounded! It was an amazingly holy 9 days filled with many beautiful moments! This was the first time my husband did a 9 day fast and it was such a privilege to do this together for Our Lady, the Caritas 3 special intentions and for our country. Our lives were forever changed when we came to the 5 days of prayer for the reconciliation of ourselves, our families and our nation back to God in 1999. You have remained our constant source of inspiration and we thank God for you and all you do to spread Our Lady’s messages. Always in our prayers.”

“I completed the 9-day fasting yesterday in God's grace. It's a miracle in itself as I have mentioned in my first post here that I could not even complete a 1 day fast before. All praises to my Redeemer who sent me graces throughout the fasting days. I cannot explain where I got the fervor to really stick to bread and water! Yesterday before supper I really felt so hungry and thirsty and a voice inside told me “now you understood what it feels to be hungry and thirsty. So many of your brothers are feeling the same way, not because of choice but because they have really nothing. Be charitable, feed the hungry & thirsty.” I realized, this fasting is just really a beginning of something new. A higher calling from God. Somehow, this fasting cleared cobwebs in me that hinder me to see clearly my purpose. God has been so gentle showing me one step at a time, like a toddler just beginning to learn how to walk. Thank you Jesus, Mama Mary, my guardian angel & to Caritas Community. ”

As we came to the end of the 9-day fast, knowing that the prayers and fasting were continuing to bank up, and amass greater and greater graces, we asked a Friend of Medjugorje where do we go from here? His answer:

“Where do we go from here? ‘Where we go one, we go all.’ That’s where we go from here.”
