Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s
October 2, 2011 Message
Given to Mirjana on the Day for Non-Believers

 

As night fell upon the Blue Cross Saturday evening October 1,2011 at the base of Podbrdo in Medjugorje where the apparition would take place early Sunday morning October 2nd, the moon appeared on the horizon of Cross Mountain. Those who were spending the night peacefully watched as the moon slipped behind the rocky slope and out of sight. The stars in the sky grew brighter and the Big Dipper was spotted again, cradling the whole valley same as last month. The Church of St. James too was visible, illuminated by electric lighting.
 

Small groups of pilgrims began to gather at the Blue Cross; some were prepared to spend the night, others to pray for a few minutes and then leave. By 9:00 pm when a group of Caritas pilgrims went to spend the night praying and waiting for Our Lady, there were already several hundred pilgrims around the Cross. They found their spots and waited with no expectations other than being in the presence of Our Lady. They were rewarded the next morning as most of them were able to see Mirjana as Our Lady appeared to her. They were able to look into the eyes that beheld the Mother of God. There were petitions and rosaries placed at the base of the statue through out the night and up to apparition time. During the apparition there were many pilgrims on their knees imploring Our Lady’s intercession and we could hear the sounds of weeping around us. It seemed to be a very intense experience for the pilgrims gathered. The crowds were still descending from the Blue Cross well after 11:00 am Sunday morning. What a gift to be in the presence of Our Lady during the Time of Grace.
 


“Dear children; Also today my motherly heart calls you to prayer, to your personal relationship with God the Father, to the joy of prayer in Him. God the Father is not far away from you and He is not unknown to you. He revealed Himself to you through my Son and gave you Life that is my Son. Therefore, my children, do not give in to temptations that want to separate you from God the Father. Pray! Do not attempt to have families and societies without Him. Pray! Pray that your hearts may be flooded by the goodness which comes only from my Son, Who is sincere goodness. Only hearts filled with goodness can comprehend and accept God the Father. I will continue to lead you. In a special way I implore you not to judge your shepherds. My children, are you forgetting that God the Father called them? Pray! Thank you.”

Mirjana said: “I have never said anything before, but are you aware, that the Mother of God was with us? Each of us should ask himself: ‘Are you worthy of this?’ I am saying this because it is difficult for me to see Her (Our Lady) in pain, because each of us is seeking a miracle, but does not want to work a miracle in himself.”

 

He Is Not Unknown to You

A Friend of Medjugorje
 

Vicka has said that what is in the heart will eventually manifest itself in a physical way. Evils, images, hate, etc., allowed in the heart manifests out of the heart into physical behavior. Hate in the heart breaks out in war through the individual, into the family, into the nation and leads nation against nation. Vicka was speaking about the war in Yugoslavia that took place in the early years of 1990. She said hatred in the heart manifests into war. Our Lady says that goodness which is God, when accepted in the heart, manifests into families and societies causing societies to prosper. However, that is not what is manifesting out of the heart of man today.

 

Where does one see prosperity today? Rather, families and societies are without God. Man’s heart is filled with darkness and evils, and evil is prevailing throughout societies. In the Bible, in Scripture, in the Word of God, it is written clearly of God’s way when man goes totally away from Him. In the Book of Romans, in the 1st chapter, verses 18-32, God’s Word is revealed to us and tells us that when goodness is not in the heart, man’s heart is darkened by God. Man’s heart darkened then does what is unseemly.

 

Many people today in society do not want to accept Romans 1:18-32. Our Lady says, “…Do not attempt to have families and society without Him…” Many reject what God has to say. Many have come to accept what God rejects. But man has what is good, the Word, the Christ, yet man has “attempted to have family and society without Him.” He has wandered off to darkness, a darkness that will bring a death sentence to all societies whose institutions and peoples have accepted what is unseemly. This is not man’s judgment. It is God’s Word.



Do you accept the truth of Romans 1:18:32 or do you not? One cannot mitigate the words of Romans 1:18:32 in order to inordinately tolerate what is unseemly and without God. These behaviors are being tolerated and therefore, are being inculturalized into societies in an attempt to have families and societies without God. These ways are even being taught to our children in schools, in daily programming on television and commercials. A constant barrage is being spoken and indoctrinated in the media and schools, and they lead to the heart’s acceptance, which leads to the inculturalization of these behaviors in our societies which can be described as nothing less than the total absence of God.

 

Our Lady spoke of judgment today. Yes, we are to leave judgment to God, because God’s judgment is a horrible fate for hearts without goodness, and a beautiful fate for those who possess goodness. But what we are responsible to use in our discretion of right and wrong, is God’s Word. With God’s Word we are to judge what is right or what is unseemly. However, the judgment of one’s fate is God’s alone. Many Christians have grown in acceptance of so many errors and false beliefs that we cannot judge anything. This is a false understanding of judging. We do not, cannot, know how God will judge a soul, because we do not know what circumstances led him to commit error. So this is God’s domain.

 

Man’s domain is to judge what is good and what is bad. It is our duty and responsibility not only to live God’s ways, but, to preserve society; to pass laws based on God’s 10 Commandments, to make judgments on what is not of God and reject it throughout society. This is the future in which goodness will prevail in society. It will not come through reform. When enough souls put goodness in their hearts, it will result in new cultures arising, new societies filled with God based upon the Christian principles of the Son of God, the creation of new societies through the messages of His Mother. We, therefore, will see the destruction of present society, not a transfiguration of society. Good will attract those of good will. The rest of society—that which has abandoned God—will be so errored it will collapse.

 

The verdict given to society today is God turning man over to himself to self-destruct. Now is the moment, a moment to seize, to be a part of the new society, a result of inculturalizing the messages into life which will not restore present society, rather will rise up a new culture where family and society thrive and flourishes through goodness. As St. Padre Pio said, “It would be easier for the world to survive without the sun than to do so without the Holy Mass.” Families, likewise, cannot be family without God. Society, therefore, cannot survive without the family. Families with goodness can comprehend and accept God the Father. These families will have the grace for a personal relationship with God the Father. Today, families have wed themselves to wrong, and have divorced right. Societies are not only in decline, they are in destruction mode by God’s judgment. A new society will replace it, not built out of its rubble, rather built upon the messages of Our Lady.

 

With Love for the Family of God and
Those Who Do Not Comprehend Him,

A Friend of Medjugorje

Pictures from the Apparition October 2, 2011 A.D.

 

Mirjana Smiling at Our Lady, October 2, 2011

Mirjana spreads her arms out and greets Our Lady with a smile this morning at her apparition at the Blue Cross, October 2, 2011. For more than 30 years, Our Lady has come to help us to see what kind of world we are creating, and to help us go a different path. Our Lady relays to us that God the Father is revealed through Her Son. It is She, Herself, who now reveals Her Son to modern man who knows Him yet, puts Him far away from himself.

 

Mirjana intently looking at Our Lady, October 2, 2011

This morning, October 2, 2011, Mirjana is visibly moved to sorrow in seeing, as she said later, Our Lady in pain. As A Friend of Medjugorje has often written over the years, the problems of our world today do not stem from the nonbelievers, but rather from believers who live their Christianity without conviction, passion, and real love for God which is expressed through obedience to the Commandments of God. Our Lady has told the Medjugorje visionaries that if Christians truly lived their faith—the whole world would become Christian.

“When the rich man came to Jesus, he asked what he must do to enter the Kingdom. Jesus told him to obey the Commandments; he responded he had kept them since childhood. He would have been better off to say nothing, for Jesus’ next words placed him under conviction to do more and he rejected it. Today it is the same with Our Lady. Many of Her children go only three-fourths of the way, wishing no more conversion. Many Christians today live a mediocre Christianity. Today there is not much which distinguishes pagans from Christians, watching the same TV shows, commercials, movies, seeking comforts, going to court, bickering, gossiping, immodest talking and dressing. It is not a wonder why we have a crisis in faith. Our Lady tells us faith is so low, it is on the verge of extinction.

Spring, 1982


“…My children, have you not observed that faith began to extinguish itself?...”

Like the rich man, we, coming to Our Lady, are held more accountable.”


From the booklet Modesty by A Friend of Medjugorje

 

Mirjana in Sorrow, October 2, 2011

Mirjana reacts to Our Lady’s sorrow in speaking of the direction the world is taking which is away from Her Son.

“The love of the world teaches us to serve ourselves, to attend to our needs first or at least as equally as we tend to others’ needs. This selfish love is not the love Our Lady wishes us to receive. Our Lady and Jesus want us to receive Divine Love to be able to give of ourselves without limit and carry our crosses. We can understand what this means before the crucifix and we will be able to receive Divine love in the proportion to which we understand it. Our Lady says:

“You will be able to receive Divine Love only in proportion to when you understand that, on the cross, God offers you His immense love.”

Our Lady tells us to die out of love as Jesus did. She wants us to let our selfishness, wants, and desires die, to be only love, and to give completely everything through love of God. She is not necessarily referring to material things or money as this may be easy, but rather to giving oneself. This is the highest degree of love.”

Mirjana Smiling at Our Lady, October 2, 2011

Mirjana’s face lights up once more as She sees Our Lady leaving. It gives hope, despite the sadness of Our Lady that Mirjana saw today, because despite everything, Our Lady is still amongst us and She promises for those who follow Her, that we will see the healing of our families and societies. Today, October 2, is the 8th day of the novena for families—the fourth novena in a series of seven novenas that are offered each year to Our Lady for the Reconciling of Ourselves, Our Families and Our Nation Back to God. These novenas, written by A Friend of Medjugorje, have been prayed for 19 consecutive years by the Community of Caritas and tens of thousands of supporters of Caritas’ mission, and are a pleading to God to bring about the conversion of our own individual hearts, the heart of our families, and finally our nation. Each novena has a thought that captures the essence of what grace is being requested of Our Lady, followed by a message of Our Lady read daily. The following is taken from the Novena for the Family:

 

THOUGHT: Our Lady’s call for the conversion of the world for the salvation of mankind is through the family. It is through the family that She wishes many of the future fruits of Her plans to be fulfilled. She wishes to present these families as petals of a flower to God…

May 1, 1986

“Dear children, I beseech you to start changing your life in the family. Let the family be a harmonious flower that I wish to give to Jesus. Dear children, let every family be active in prayer for I wish that the fruits in the family be seen one day. Only that way shall I give all, like petals, as a gift to Jesus in fulfillment of God’s plans. Thank you for having responded to my call.”


We are grateful to have been praying this novena for these days leading up to October 2, and the words of Our Lady—to have been active in prayer for the very intentions that Our Lady asked from us today. If you have not been participating in this novena, we invite you to begin it today. It can be found on the homepage of Medjugojre.com. Click here for the Novena Prayers for the Family.

 

The crowd at the apparition, October 2, 2011

This is the street just below the site of the Blue Cross just after Mirjana had her apparition this morning, October 2, 2011. What propelled Mirjana to speak to the crowd today? What does she see in so many of the pilgrims coming to Medjugorje? It was an anguished cry to awaken something deeper into the hearts of those gathered. Mirjana is often asked what Our Lady means by “unbelievers.” This is how she once replied to that question:

“Our Lady says from time to time even her most faithful children are unbelievers. We all have our moments during the day, during each day of our life, where even the most faithful among us do not believe. So Our Lady prays for each of us too. Many of us who think we believe have many parts of ourselves that really do not believe. Our Lady repeats this plea to her faithful ones: ‘Please pray for unbelievers every day. They know not what awaits them.’ She recognizes sadly that many of her children throughout the world go to church or places of worship just because it is a tradition, but they are unbelievers because they do not really know and love God. They only go to places of worship as a social custom. The Blessed Mother says they need much prayer so that they, too, can, believe.”
