Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s June 2, 2013
Apparition and Message Given to Mirjana on the Day for Nonbelievers


Last night on June 1, 2013 pilgrims started to gather at the Blue Cross around 6:00pm in order to be close to Mirjana as she would be receiving her June 2, 2013 apparition of Our Lady on the day for non-believers the following morning. Pilgrims prayed and sang songs throughout the night in different languages to prepare their hearts for Our Lady’s apparition. By 4:30 a.m., the crowd was packed all around the Blue Cross and the surrounding area. Around 5:00 a.m., different priests from different languages led the Rosary. There was beautiful music played in between each decade. Mirjana arrived around 8:30 a.m. By this time there were thousands of pilgrims that were anxiously waiting for her arrival. Mirjana knelt down and was shedding tears during her prayers before Our Lady would appear to her. Our Lady appeared to Mirjana around 8:40 a.m. and the apparition lasted a little over four minutes. During the apparition, Mirjana displayed an array of emotions. The following is the message Our Lady gave to Mirjana during her apparition:
 

“Dear children; In this restless time, anew I am calling you to set out after my Son—to follow Him. I know of the pain, suffering and difficulties, but in my Son you will find rest; in Him you will find peace and salvation. My children, do not forget that my Son redeemed you by His Cross and enabled you, anew, to be children of God; to be able to, anew, call the Heavenly Father: ‘Father’. To be worthy of the Father, love and forgive, because your Father is love and forgiveness. Pray and fast, because that is the way to your purification, it is the way of coming to know and becoming cognizant of the Heavenly Father. When you become cognizant of the Father, you will comprehend that He is all you need. I, as a mother, desire my children to be in a community of one single people where the Word of God is listened to and carried out.* Therefore, my children, set out after my Son. Be one with Him. Be God’s children. Love your shepherds as my Son loved them when He called them to serve you. Thank you.


*Our Lady said this resolutely and with emphasis

 


Special Note: Today Our Lady tells us of a desire of Hers for a community of oneness. Almost 25 years ago, on December 13, 1988, Our Lady also made a similar desire through Medjugorje visionary Marija in the home of the founder of Caritas. Marija told the founder and his wife after the apparition of December 13, 1988, which took place in their home, of something Our Lady wanted:
 

“Our Lady wants to start a community here.”


Our Lady would manifest many things to the founder, particularly through the “cross” of a witness. Our Lady’s ‘desire’ manifested a community of “one single people.” Today, many are beginning this path, particularly through what was written in They Fired the First Shot 2012. Those of you who have read They Fired the First Shot, today’s message is particularly for you, as of a blessing upon the path you are beginning. For those setting out into the future with Our Lady, what follows from A Friend of Medjugorje is formation to begin now for your future, a future that will surely contain many crosses and persecutions. If there could be any advice given for those beginning the path contained in They Fired the First Shot, it would be what you are about to read. Men of good-will should take heed to what follows.

One Mind, One Thought

by A Friend of Medjugorje
 


Our Lady’s words today:
 

Restless time – agitation of satan without ceasing

Set out after – peace takes action

Follow Him – the One who leads, in this restless time of war, who is the only One who can achieve peace

Pain, suffering and difficulties – the experiences of physical and spiritual battle

You will find – with the Son as leader, you will discover peace and be saved

My Son Redeemed – “Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of Mankind” through the Cross

Love and forgive – achieved by your decision; will fruit into receiving love and forgiveness from the Father

Purification – achieved by bearing with joy the cross of prayer and fasting, by which you will become aware of the Heavenly Father as a real tangible Father.

All you need
– no matter what you go through, what comes to you in the future, when you are cognizant of the Father, you will have all needs that a Father knows how to give—as a protector, provider and leader for you and your family. He is your need—through which all needs are met.

“I”…desire, my children, to be in a community of one single people…” – The future where the Father will be your “need” as headship of the community, with its “one single people” in union with the Heavenly Father; a threaded authority, as one fabric.

Carried out – With the heart purified, set out to achieve The Word of being “one single people,”—a community of one mind, one heart, one thought, making Jesus’ joy complete.

Set out –cannot be achieved without doing the above.

Be one – one mind, one thought, one heart must—“must” be in the strongest definition and meaning of the word in community to set out into the future to have a future. Not to, is not to have a future.


On October 31, 1997, several community members gathered in Medjugorje for a private apparition with Marija. There were only Caritas Community members present. Our Lady appeared and stunned the community with a message, a special message of Her want. Our Lady said to the community:
 

"I want you to be Jesus’ joy."


To say we were in wonder over the message is an understatement. It is the intent of darkness to stop people from coming to know how to be one people, one heart, so those who set out to achieve oneness will not “find rest,” as Our Lady said today, “in my Son.” What accomplishes this “rest?” Prayer and fasting results in peace and contentment. Peace and contentment must be protected and can only remain by the absence of negativity and complaining, and with the attitude of taking everything in stride, that whatever circumstances we face is what God has given us. This inner peace and contentment must be shown outwardly by witness. We must realize that even trials from the Father, come to us because trials are “our need” met by the Heavenly Father to form, mold and forge us into His children as one people. Our Lady said on August 22, 1985:
 

“…God wants to send you trials which you can overcome by prayer. God is testing you through daily chores…”


Our Lady said, “God wants to” put trials into your daily walk, to try you and see how you’ll handle it. Do you react to circumstances with outbursts? Do you grow angry? Do you resent, question, or become adverse to the rightful authority over you because it is contrary to what you want, think and or believe because you see your way as a better way?


The better way—is love. Love is best displayed by obedience. Obedience is more important than being right or what you may think is right. Yes, in areas of position that you must be obedient to, you must accept the circumstance with gratitude, as to the Lord. This can mean even changing your opinion out of obedience for the sake of oneness. This is what it means to be one mind and one heart. But what if the authority which has jurisdiction over you is wrong? Authority is not there solely to be perfectly right, but to be perfectly followed in “one single” community of people. Oneness brings the grace of the fullest fruit possible from a decision by the joy of Jesus becoming complete in seeing the harmony and love between His people. Yes, good authority is to be desired, and authority against natural law is to be defied, but the question should be asked, what is one suppose to do when you have someone not so good in decision-making authority? God, seeing His children following authority in oneness, is the One who dispenses the grace to make a decision fruitful. It does not have to be a great decision to be obeyed. “A community of one single people where the Word of God is listened to and carried out” will produce good fruit with every good-willed decision made. By doing this, your “need” will be met by good-willed decisions by good authority producing abundant fruit in the life of a single minded community where God’s Word, which is Our Lady’s word, is listened to and carried out.


In building the Tabernacle of Our Lady’s Messages, one of the contractors remarked to several community members that “you people act all the same like your founder.” One community member responded, “Yes, one community member can begin a sentence here and another can finish it.” The contractor was saying this in a negative way, yet the Word of God listened to and carried out says,
 

Philippians 2:2

“Then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.”


Years ago for the opening of our school, 25 community members were asked to make a statement in defining Our Lady’s way of life as lived in the Community of Caritas. They made 25 separate statements without knowledge of what the others were saying and called it, “One Mind, One Thought.” Their statement of having one begin a sentence and having it ended by another follows:
 

One Mind, One Thought

It’s hard just to put one definition on it
It’s witness
Prayer and fasting, keeping Sunday holy,
Seeing Creation through each other, through nature,
To live in peace amidst the challenges
Putting faith into practice
Taking care of each other’s needs
Living first for God
Everyone goes to the same goal
A call received from Heaven, simple, dependence on God
It’s beautiful, family, friends
One mind, one thought
Close to God
Putting God first and leading others to Him
A simpler way of time, cherishing the land
The life of simplicity, God wants to give us joy
The orientation towards Heaven, experience of Our Lady
What God had planned for man from the beginning
What makes you live, Jesus’ joy, living for the future
Where you don’t have to grow up and move away
There’s never a dull moment
Living spiritually for God…everything
Where love reigns, and Mary of Nazareth is held as Queen
Pray, work, and play…pray, pray, pray
Dirt, patience, and perseverance, minus your will, equals…
A Way of Life

“The Creation of a Way of Life”
Our Lady Queen of Peace


Right now in the exact moment of Our Lady’s words, given today, June 2, 2013, the community is literally under a big cross in preparation for July 1-5 with many trials and difficulties. For example, just yesterday, on Saturday, June 1, in the community, what could go wrong in our work, went wrong, yet the suffering of the cross results in peace. We know the cross the Father gives us will enable us to become closer to each other, as well as for us to draw others to the cross and become “anew,” children of God. It is for us to climb the mountain, to draw closer to the Heavenly “Father,” literally to pronounce the word, “Father,” from the heart, heartfelt with physical steps to “set out” for this encounter.

Pictures from the June 2, 2013 Apparition

Mirjana before the apparition June 2, 2013


Mirjana waits for Our Lady’s arrival, this morning, June 2, 2013, at the Blue Cross in Medjugorje for her second of the month apparition. Though surrounded by thousands of pilgrims, her thoughts are directed only towards the One who is about to appear to Her. Can anyone of us imagine what these moments are to the visionaries, especially those who do not see Our Lady on a daily basis? A Friend of Medjugorje, in observing Marija closely before an apparition several years ago, saw a familiar look on her face—but though it was familiar, it greatly impacted him. Having seen his wife go through the natural childbirth of seven labor and deliveries with his seven children, the moment comes that can visibly be seen on her face, un-medicated, when there is no holding back—the baby is coming, the baby is ready to make his entry into the world. His wife is totally absorbed in this moment—it is pain, it is suffering, but she is powerless to stop it. Yet, she does not want to stop it because at the end of the suffering, there will be her child that she has carried all these months. There is no other face that she desires to see more than her new child. Incredibly, A Friend of Medjugorje, saw these emotions displayed on Marija’s face in anticipation of Our Lady’s coming in one particular apparition. It gave him deeper insight into what the visionaries experience in anticipating the arrival of Our Lady. It is as though each apparition is a birth—the anticipation, the suffering, and finally seeing the beloved face of their Heavenly Mother before their eyes—the face they most long to see in this world.

 

Our Lady appears to Mirjana June 2, 2013


Mirjana customarily greets Our Lady by extending her hands to Her. For those watching, the gesture and the lighted smile on her face says, “Our Lady is here.” It was the same this morning. It is a moment that fills the heart with joy and solemnity. The visionaries have all testified that three flashes of light precede Our Lady each time She appears. In the early days of the apparitions, when Our Lady would appear on Apparition Mountain and the visionaries would all be down on the street below waiting for Her, they would immediately begin racing up the mountain at the first sign of the three lights that would designate the exact spot Our Lady would be appearing. People watching the scene were absolutely amazed at seeing the visionaries who were often separated from each other and couldn’t see each other as they climbed different sections of the mountain, quickly converge at the exact spot, often at the exact time, and suddenly fall on their knees beside each other with ecstatic smiles on their faces. Many people became believers in the apparitions in the light of such obvious improbabilities happening before their eyes.


Our Lady appearing to Mirjana June 2, 2013


A moment after Our Lady appears to Mirjana, this morning, June 2, Mirjana is overcome with emotion. It’s the moment after her eyes first see Our Lady, when her mind can then form the words, “She is really here before me.”


Mirjana crying while Our Lady appears June 2, 2013


A tear slides down Mirjana’s face as she speaks a greeting to Our Lady who is there before Her, in Her transformed physical body. A Friend of Medjugorje helps us to understand what it means for us to be in the physical presence of Our Lady for all these years of apparitions.

“Mary, in Her humility, could not have thought in Her earthly life that God would take Her body which walked the earth and take it to Heaven. Mary’s words, in the Poem of the Man-God, of Her meeting Her Son in Heaven with Her own flesh spoke of what the goodness of God did for Her.

“…The kindness of the Father reserved for me the joy of feeling again the touch of my Son’s hand on my body, His embrace, His kiss, and of hearing again His voice with my ears, of seeing His face with my eyes. I could not think that this would be granted to me, neither did I wish it…”

Marija told me directly that the Medjugorje apparitions are the last apparitions on earth in which visionaries such as herself will be able to see Our Lady, touch Her, and hear Her. Mary, physically is in Heaven in Her earthly body, now glorified. In one moment, She can embrace Jesus in Her resurrected body and the next moment be in front of Marija and give Marija a kiss, which she has received before. If you contemplate what Mary’s physical presence means for our time, you would do as the words state:

November 8, 1984

“Dear children, you are not conscious of the messages which God is sending to you through me. He is giving you great graces and you do not comprehend them. Pray to the Holy Spirit for enlightenment. If you only knew how great are the graces God is granting you, you would be praying without ceasing. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

The essence of evil, satan, clouds our minds with many “good” busy things that we do throughout the day to keep us from contemplating, piercing the veil of spiritual things such as the first meeting of Jesus and Mary in their glorified flesh in Heaven, the only two bodies in Heaven.

July 25, 1997

“…I desire, dear children, that during this time you find a corner for personal prayer…”

If you do not find a prayer corner, an encounter with God, one of the most glorious moments in Christianity will pass you by. And when you later realize it, the cup you drink will be bitter. Use this time well, with the physical presence of Our Lady upon the earth each day.

From The Desk of A Friend of Medjugorje, March 4, 2008

 

Mirjana June 2, 2013


“Dear children; In this restless time, anew I am calling you to set out after my Son—to follow Him…” And so began the words of Our Lady’s June 2, 2013,message given to the world through her servant, Mirjana, on the day of nonbelievers. A Friend of Medjugorje often questions Marija about Our Lady in the apparitions. Back in 1988 when Marija was staying at his home in Alabama for the first time, he asked her to describe Our Lady’s voice. To questions such as this one, Marija would always reply, “There are no words I have to describe Our Lady. No words are adequate to give you a true picture of what She looks like or who She is.” Not daunted by Marija’s reluctance, A Friend of Medjugorje responds back by saying, “Marija, I know there are no words, but if you had to choose a word to describe Our Lady’s voice, what word would you choose?” After a moment of thought, Marija simply said, “Musical. Our Lady’s voice is musical, something heard audibly and at the same time, in my heart and through my whole being.” Harmonious, something beyond delightful in just hearing and feeling it.


 Mirjana smiling June 2, 2013


Mirjana continues to listen, in joy, to Our Lady’s message. What will you do with Our Lady’s words today. Most of us have good intentions when Our Lady gives us new words. How many follow through with those good intentions? How many are reading Her messages everyday as She said we should? Beyond reading them, how many are actively changing their lives based in what the Holy Spirit inspires through Her messages. To do so is to put our trust in Her. A Friend of Medjugorje challenges you to do just that from his writing “Perseverance and Endurance”:

“Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s messages often course us to or through the unknown. We can’t always see how things will work out, but we must remember Her words:

March 18, 2004

“…Listen to me…”

Are we willing to do for the spiritual and eternal life what men throughout the ages have done for earthly life in saving themselves? Too much planning builds bureaucracy. Too much thinking can stop you before you start. How much are we to trust in Our Lady’s plans and Her messages? We do not have to know everything, the outcome, etc. Sometimes it takes just leaping in to follow Our Lady’s messages, even if it causes us more suffering and hurts, we know after we take that ride, we can look back up at the dark clouds we were in and then see by taking a chance on Our Lady that everything turned to our favor. It could take years to course us out of our predicaments, but Our Lady’s messages save, rescue, heal and will make all things new. Months, even years of perseverance and endurance is the key, seize the moment of grace. It will lead to blue skies.”

From the writing “Perseverance and Endurance” by A Friend of Medjugorje

Our Lady going back to Heaven June 2, 2013


The moment has come. The moment has gone. Our Lady has returned to Heaven. Mirjana closes her eyes in joy and in sorrow—until another month passes, and Our Lady will be with her again. But for Mirjana, for us, for the world, our consolation is that Our Lady continues to come, not just each month, but each day, to bring us Her blessing, Her guidance, and Her peace. Yes, the world is falling into greater destruction around us, but Our Lady is with us. We are not alone. Thank God the Father for such a gift of love we so desperately need.
