It has been very cold, windy and rainy in Medjugorje, but that did not stop villagers from getting out into their vineyards, to begin the process of preparing the vines for the production of their grapes. It won’t be until September or October when the grapes will be harvested to make their family wine. Our Lady calls us to God’s creation because we are able to see spiritual truths in the work of the soil, truths that will help us in our spiritual lives.

“…May this time be a time of personal prayer for you, so that the seed of faith may grow in your hearts; and may it grow into a joyful witness to others…grow and rejoice in the Lord Who has created you…”

“…In this time of grace, when nature also prepares to give the most beautiful colors of the year…open your hearts to God the Creator…so that all the good which has fallen asleep in your hearts may awaken to a new life…”

 

 

The pruning trimmings being burned

Burning the trimming waste - Medjugorje - March 10, 2010

 

There is much work in the fields that must be done to have a rich harvest in the future. The vineyards must be pruned, the dead branches gathered and carted away, and then burned. Each vine must then be tied to wires to manage its growth in the right direction. And then, fertilizing and constant pruning as the grapes grow. Today, it is tedious work in unpleasant weather, but the thought of the joy of the harvest that is now months away is what puts the desire and commitment in the heart to carry out the work. In this time of Lent, we can learn lessons from the vineyard—persevere in order to see the triumph.

“…in this special time of your effort to be all the closer to my Son, to His suffering, but also to His love with which He bore it, I desire to tell you that I am with you. I will help you to triumph over the errors and temptations with my grace…”
