Our Lady said through Marija, on June 25, 2020:

“…open your hearts in this time of grace and set out on the way of conversion…”

The time of grace brings to us a time of conversion. While we have heard this so many times repeated through the years, it is an essential thing to remember during the days of this 39th anniversary.

Medjugorje visionary Vicka praying over priests

(Medjugorje photo taken on Friday, May 23, 2008, 12:23 PM) - The smiling of face of Medjugorje visionary Vicka, while she prays over two priests in Medjugorje.

Back in 1986, when a Friend of Medjugorje was first getting involved with going to Medjugorje, he had taken several trips there from the United States. At the time it was very cheap to travel to Medjugorje. One day, he was standing outside the rectory in Medjugorje, thinking about what he had been hearing from several priests, who said that Medjugorje was just another Fatima, another Lourdes, and that Our Lady was not saying anything new, only repeating the Gospel. He thought about his business back home, which he needed to get back to. Maybe it was time to get back to his life. Then something remarkable happened:

[A Friend of Medjugorje] began to walk through the fields of Medjugorje towards Apparition Mountain. He grabbed hold of a few stalks of wheat that were ready for harvest, rubbed them between his hands, blew off the chaff and ate the wheat. It struck him that this was something the apostles had done with Jesus 2000 years ago. He then arrived at the house of one of the visionaries, Vicka, as she was speaking to several different language groups outside her house. He watched as she spoke something in Croatian and then heard the translators relay what she said to their groups in their various languages; from Croatian to Italian, Croatian to French, Croatian to English, and to other languages. Suddenly he saw a parallel of what was taking place before his eyes and Pentecost 2000 years ago when all heard Peter in their native tongues. The thought began to form in his heart that no, this was not just another Lourdes or Fatima. It was at that point he was moved towards the messages of Our Lady and discovered in the messages, that She spoke about a plan that She desired to be fulfilled through Medjugorje.

From A Friend of Medjugorje - Works

A Friend of Medjugorje has relayed to the Community that when he walked the fields rubbing the wheat and blowing the chaff, he thought, “This is the Bible!” These thoughts, leading him to the messages, placed a desire in his heart to know what “the plan” was, that Our Lady was speaking about. He read message after message, but was not seeing the plan. Then after several months of prayer, Our Lady revealed it, on January 25, 1987:

“…I want you to comprehend that God has chosen each one of you in order to use you in a great plan for the salvation of mankind…”

A Friend of Medjugorje received confirmation of what he had already decided, that Our Lady’s plan is what he wanted to spend the rest of his life doing. When we think about Our Lady’s words, “time of grace,” we cannot help but remember this story, knowing a Friend of Medjugorje’s walk towards the messages, and his understanding that Medjugorje is Biblical. And we live in this time, a Biblical time of grace.
