Our Lady of Medjugorje said on November 25, 1991:

“Pray that you might be able to comprehend what God desires to tell you through my presence and through the messages I am giving you…”

We have two things speaking to us: the messages and the presence of Our Lady. Through these two things, God is desiring to “tell us” things. This is important to know, in order to understand why Our Lady does not say certain things.

Our Lady in the Field at Caritas, at sunset

(Caritas photo taken Tuesday August 4, 2015, 6:44 PM) - Our Lady is brilliant in the Field of Apparitions at sunset. What happened at Caritas was not something which a Friend of Medjugorje necessarily “envisioned”, but rather, it is what Our Lady “revealed.” Our Lady sometimes spoke to a Friend of Medjugorje through the visionary Marija. Other times, Our Lady revealed certain things to a Friend of Medjugorje through his prayer. It was not always Her messages, but sometimes Her actions which revealed what She wanted to accomplish and be built. See more here...

A Friend of Medjugorje has always said that in Medjugorje, Our Lady has rarely ever spoken about specific world events or people - in fact, almost never. Why? Why is Our Lady not specific in “naming names,” or calling out bad people? One reason a Friend of Medjugorje tells us, is so that the messages will be timeless, speaking to the future as much as to the present. But, there is another really big reason why. To understand it, we first have to look at what Our Lady is doing through Her messages and Her presence. A Friend of Medjugorje explains this very clearly:

The world is in a tangle and it cannot get free on its own. It is being strangled by its own doing. However, God, in His mercy, will help us. This can be compared to a little boy playing with his mother’s ball of yarn. First, he slowly toys with it but gets more and more tangled in it. While struggling to get free from it, he becomes more tangled and endangers himself with strangulation. Hearing him choking, his mother runs to his rescue but cannot free him immediately because of the risk of choking him further and doing permanent harm. So she works with all the speed, patience, intensity and concern she can, delicately untangling this string and severing another, detaching the strings one by one with a steady hand until she gets to the string around his neck and frees him. The child saw absolutely no danger in the ball of yarn and, in fact, couldn’t have seen the potential danger.

Just as the mother came to her child’s rescue, Mary is sent to the world which is choking with sin. The family is so entangled that to make any rapid moves would run the risk of breaking up the family and causing more harm. So with intensity, concern, patience, and speed, Our Lady delicately begins freeing us from the stranglehold of the society man has built, knowing all the while if the process moves too quickly it will rupture relationships. In Her wisdom, She initiates our formation through prayer and, in this way, She slowly frees us. There are casualties along the way because of obstinate hearts who refuse the grace to change and make a clean break with the direction in which the world is going, yet others go forward.

I See Far, Chapter 2 - 1995

We learn two things. First, the tangle of the world is such that Our Lady knows that She simply cannot say certain things because it will alienate people who are otherwise good-willed. As a Friend of Medjugorje was once told by a Cardinal in Rome, there are many good people doing bad things. There are good people following bad people, or who are involved in bad movements or false religions. So instead, Our Lady gets everyone to pray and live Her messages. Those who are good-willed see the truth when their heart is ready. Secondly, why does Our Lady not just call out all the “bad actors” out there? Because, as a Friend of Medjugorje shared in the parable above, no one is exempt - She would have to call out everyone by name. There is one bad actor Our Lady calls out - satan. All we have to do is see the evidence of satan to know what Our Lady is really calling out, by not calling it out. *

* This is one of the mysteries of the Medjugorje messages which a Friend of Medjugorje has unlocked through prayer, sacrifice and choosing to lose repeatedly, instead of being political. This is why one can read a book like, They Fired the First Shot 2012, or It Ain’t Gonna Happen, or Look What Happened While You Were Sleeping, and see how Our Lady was speaking directly to certain events and people, yet, never mentioning their name or the event. A Friend of Medjugorje discovered that Our Lady speaks in a “coded” language, and only those who have given their life without reservation can unlock that code. A Friend of Medjugorje has literally 34 years worth of writings and witness that you can draw from, for your life’s journey. We encourage you to set aside part of your day and read through what Our Lady has done with him, so that you too can unlock the messages for your life. For as Our Lady said, God desires to “tell us” things. Read all about it here...
