Our Lady said in Her monthly message of May 25, 2020:

“Pray with me for a new life for all of you. In your hearts, little children, you know what needs to be changed…”

Of this, we are witnesses, that new life is beginning with the old life ending.

Makeshift cross in Medjugorje

(Medjugorje photo taken Friday March 15, 2019, 2:34 PM) - A homemade cross, made by a pilgrim on Cross Mountain in Medjugorje. Perhaps done by a pilgrim going through a crisis, these acts of devotion, prayers, petitions, all manifest in these types of things done by pilgrims, often spontaneously.

When a Friend of Medjugorje wrote They Fired the First Shot 2012, he told of different things which were happening in our nation and the world and how to fix them. One, had to do with prayer. Naturally, with the Medjugorje world, there is no shortage of opinions on prayer. However, this one small passage, shares more than an opinion, it is a perspecitive that stems from experience:

So where do we start to win? First, with deep repentance, then amend our lives with fasting, prayer, peace and penance. We must have both a strong daily structured and spontaneous prayer life. Next, we look at where evil began to win and where we began to lose.

They Fired the First Shot 2012 - March 2012

A Friend of Medjugorje explains that in order to see where to win, and where we are losing, we have to have a prayer that is both structured and spontaneous. Think back a few months. When coronavirus hit, many lost the structure of their prayer life. Daily Masses were canceled, or chapels closed. The need to think quickly and be spontaneous about one’s spiritual life was essential. Many of things we do here at Caritas, started as spontaneous inspirations which a Friend of Medjugorje received in his prayer. When, in his old prayer groups, he noticed a “staleness” which existed in the old church mentality. If Our Lady desires the world to have a new life, this old life needs to pass away. We as Her apostles need to re-think our structure. Be more spontaneous about our prayer. Yes, Our Lady may have one awake all night praying. A Friend of Medjugorje does this often. But, to begin this new life, Our Lady asks us to pray with Her. That means, when She wants. Listen to Her promptings.
