“I have never fasted on bread and water, though I am 58 years old. I have always been afraid of getting a migraine headache from low blood sugar. But the state of the world, the church, and even my family really requires that I fast in this manner…”

There is no doubt that this world needs this 9-day bread and water fast. Our Lady’s recent words of October 2, 2018 tell us:



“…My children, the world needs apostles of love; the world needs much prayer, but prayer spoken with the heart and the soul and not only pronounced with the lips. My children, long for holiness but in humility, in the humility which permits my Son to do that which He desires through you…”



As mentioned before, fasting brings one’s heart low, in humility before God. The Fasting Novena prayer, written by a Friend of Medjugorje reads:



“O Queen of Heaven, we unite ourselves with others across the land in a holy fast, reminiscent of the so many times ancient Israel cried out in repentance to their God. By their history, we know God the Most High will hear our cry. We humble ourselves because of our sins… O Mary, these days of fasting we wish to empty our hearts of everything useless. Cleanse us. Let this fast purify us and atone for everything that has defiled us. O Mary, Queen of Peace, let our hearts be refilled through Your hands with whatever graces are necessary to reconcile us, our families, and our nation back to God…”



There are times in history, such as with ancient Israel, that the times require drastic action, out of ordinary life to bring about an extraordinary result. Now is such a time. As we humble ourselves in prayer, fasting and sacrifice, we bring our hearts low before God, that He may see the sincerity of our hearts and bring us to the triumph of Our Lady. Here below are just a few more words from others joining in this fast:



“Was wanting to sign up for the nine day fast. Working to not become a lost soul.”

“I would like to join the fast, even though I am a bit late. Happy to be fasting with all of you for our Mother Mary.”

“I starting fasting on bread and water yesterday and plan to continue all 9 days. Thank you for your leadership and encouragement. I am joining my prayers to/and for the Community and I also have a very special intention for my family”

Though we do not normally publish these, even those who, for some reason or another are not able to do the entire fast, are understanding the need to add their prayers to this, like their words below:



“What a beautiful thing! There is hope for mankind through Our Lady’s Reign. I will try my best to fast in many different ways to contribute to the most important need for all of us. The goal of heaven!”

“Dear Forever Friends. After many years of offering Our Lady bread and water fasts, I am no longer able to do so due to several medical conditions that have been a bit of a challenge to manage. I find that it is harder to offer Her my will in following the things I must do to manage these illnesses than it was to fast. The one time I was stubborn about it, I became very sick. So in union with your more traditional fast, I offer my ‘widow’s mite’ of a fast: this includes, among several other daily disciplines, having to give up coffee and alcohol for the rest of my life. The coffee is a killer. Especially when my hubby brews it each morning! Lol! I add my prayers. And may Our Lady increase and beautify all our ‘Widow’s Mites’! In the Hearts of Jesus, Mary + Joseph.”

This is the third day of the fast, one third of the way, symbolic of the third of the angels which fell from Heaven. Continue to pray and fast with fervor for not only the defeat of evil, but the triumph of Our Lady’s Reign!
