Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s June 2, 2010 Message
Given on the Day for Non-Believers

The visionary Marija spoke to A Friend of Medjugorje several months ago and relayed to him that Italy was experiencing a profound awakening in regards to Medjugorje. That has been easily confirmed in Medjugorje because over the past couple of months the Italians have been arriving by the thousands for Mirjana’s second of the month apparitions. Because so many Italians are in the village, the daily Italian Mass is held in the area of the outside altar during these days, as St. James Church is well under the capacity to hold the majority of them.

Radio WAVE

With this much greater influx of pilgrims coming in for Mirjana’s apparitions, those pilgrims who want to be near Mirjana, and hopefully catch a glimpse of her face while she is seeing Our Lady, have to arrive earlier and earlier the night before because there is more competition for the space. Caritas community members arrived at the Blue Cross at midnight, just as June 2nd was dawning, and there were already many people present who were spending the night. The Caritas pilgrimage group left their pansion at 3:30 a.m. to arrive at 4:00 a.m. at the Blue Cross, and most of the inner circle was already completely filled. Caritas members said that all night long rosaries and prayers were being prayed out loud in the area of the Blue Cross. The pilgrims were enthusiastic and joyful in their preparation for Our Lady’s coming apparition.

The past two evenings, on May 30 & 31st, during the time of the evening services thunderclouds rolled in and rain poured down, causing pilgrims to find some cover while attending the Rosary and Mass. Though there was a threat of rain all morning for Mirjana’s apparition, this morning on June 2nd, the rain did not come, but the conditions were muddy and slippery going up to the Blue Cross, and the temperature was in the 60’s.

Mirjana arrived approximately at 8:30 a.m., knelt before the Blue Cross, and began silently praying. The apparition began at 8:45 a.m. and lasted six minutes. Though impossible to guess the numbers present, there were thousands gathered, and all were completely silent during and after the apparition, as they waited to hear Our Lady’s message. Following is Our Lady’s words for June 2, 2010:

June 2, 2010

“Dear children, today I call you, with fasting and prayer, to clear the way by which my Son will enter into your hearts. Accept me as a mother and a messenger of God’s love and of His desire for your salvation. Free yourself of everything from the past which burdens you and gives you a sense of guilt; of everything that brought you to error—darkness. Accept the light. Be born anew in the justice of my Son. Thank you.”

 

Our Lady blessed all the religious articles and Mirjana said that when Our Lady was leaving, she saw a white dove at the end of the apparition, which Mirjana thought was the Holy Spirit.

Clear the Way
 

He left his home in search of something he believed he did not have. A restlessness of discontentment drove him away. Looking for fulfillment, he wandered from place to place, all the while wounding himself, being entertained with the sins of the world. Seeking one fulfillment after another, he felt more empty as each worldly gratification and sin sunk him deeper into life’s woes and errors. At one point, becoming so disgusted with himself, he began to reflect upon the home he had left long ago, the happy times and was surprised at the longing he felt for his past life. He remembered the simplicity of its yard and how the fresh dew covered the flowers before the sun rose in the morning sky each day. How he longed for those simple beautiful days. Because of an erred mentality of discontentment, he had become blind to the beauty of his past life. His longing for those days began to be his escape from the harsh life he was now living that he once thought would be his fulfillment. It was then, at his loneliest moments when he became overwhelmed with thoughts of the happy days of his childhood through becoming an adult, in which his home had brought to him. He decided to go back to what he had left ten years before.

Upon arriving, his anxious joy turned to dismay as he approached the long dirt drive to his home. The abandoned place had become overgrown and was so covered with plant growth that the house could not even be seen. He sat down and cried at what he had left and hope faded. He dwelt on his past sins and how he had neglected his beautiful cottage. No more beauty could be seen. The darkness from the shade of the growth that had taken over long ago had choked away the beautiful flowers. He had a lot of work to do, but he resolved to do it, having the remembrance of a better life. The road to the house now had trees growing upon it and it took a bulldozer to clear them away. However, he persisted and once the road was cleared to the house, he saw that the house itself was also burdened with vines of which even snaked into the house through broken windows. After a great deal of work, clearing and fighting to clean up his home, it was restored from the gloomy darkness, and no longer covered with vines. A light came upon the ground and flowers re-bloomed in their former beauty.

And finally he realized that what he had left to go in search of, that which would satisfy his discontentment, he was finally content with. After ten long years and many scars and wounds, he found the contentment he was searching for, right in his own home that he had disowned long before.

Our Lady shows us to clear the way back to Her Son requires the power of a bulldozer, which is derived from the power of fasting and prayer. This will clear the way, opening your home up to have Jesus enter the heart of your soul, “homed” in your physical being, your soul will be as the house, freed from the overgrowth and vines. We are to free ourselves from everything from the past which burdens us and gives us the sense of guilt. On December 4, 1986, Our Lady said:

“…the Lord particularly desires to purify you from all the sins of your past…Only that way shall you be able to recognize all the evil that is in you and surrender it to the Lord so the Lord may completely purify your hearts…”

It is Our Lady’s intent for Jesus to enter your heart, as the man cleared his way back to his home, to again dwell there, for you to clear the way so that Jesus may dwell in your heart.


Our Lady’s words today, “accept me” with the message of God’s desire for your salvation, should be understood also in that what if we do not accept Her? Our Lady says:

March 18, 1996

“…Accept my messages that you may be accepted. Decide, my children, it is the time of decision. Be of just and innocent heart…”
 


How? Our Lady says on February 25, 1987:


“…surrender to the Lord your entire past, all the evil that has accumulated in your hearts. I want each one of you to be happy, but in sin nobody can be happy…”
 


We are to free ourselves of everything in the past which burdens us and gives a sense of guilt. Our Lady says on September 10, 1985:
 


“With respect to sin, it suffices to give it serious consideration, and soon, move ahead and correct the sin…”
 


Not to move ahead and to dwell on the past causes you not to clear the way. You rather become stuck and preoccupied with past errors, preoccupied with the sense of guilt and, therefore, prone to repeat and perpetuate the error or darkness which prevents you from praying properly. Our Lady said on February/March 1985:


“…During prayer, you must not be preoccupied with your sins. Sins must remain behind.”
 


Guilt’s purpose is good if it motivates one toward repentance. It is destructive if, after repentance and atonement, it does not move beyond this burden to free oneself. Our Lady’s intent is to free us from the past, so we can accept the light and be born ‘anew’ in the Justice of Christ. We have a choice of justice in this sacred time. If we live ‘in’ justice, according to God’s love, leaving the way of sin for salvation, we can expect God to be, in justice, our Father instead of in justice our Judge. Our Lady said on March 18, 2010:
 

“…when the soul loves it calls my Son to itself. My Son does not refuse those who call Him and who desire to live according to Him…Pray that God may be their Father and not their Judge…”
 


If your house is not the dwelling place of Our Lord because neglect and overgrowth of the past years has darkened the home of your heart, free yourself now in the time of grace and let Jesus enter your heart.

Clear the Way,

Friend of Medjugojre


P.S. Remember Our Lady said: “accept my messages that you may be accepted.” The dove at the end of today’s apparition is a message, a gentle creature who descends as the Holy Spirit when Jesus is being baptized. St. Paul says:


“Do nothing to sadden the Holy spirit with whom you were sealed against the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, all passion and anger, harsh words, slander, and malice of every kind.”
Eph 4:30-31

There are those who see as insignificant, very significant aspects of Our Lady’s apparitions. Our Lady’s apparitions are in and of themselves a message. The message is delivered not only with words, but often through what occurs during the apparitions. Why else would Our Lady make a clear effort for Mirjana to see a dove if it is not a message? It is a grave matter to gloss over, ignore or to deem unimportant any part of Our Lady’s apparitions or messages, for to do so is to not fully accept Our Lady nor want to understand the true reason for Her coming.

June 25, 1991

“…There are many people who do not desire to understand my messages and to accept with seriousness what I am saying…”

A dove represents something very powerful and used many times in Scripture to symbolize the Holy Spirit. Yet, the gentle dove is easily shooed away. Accept Our Lady’s words and actions in fullness so as not to drive away from yourselves the Holy Spirit.



Pilgrims with umbrellas June 2

An array of multi-colored umbrellas visually brightened a rather dreary looking morning as crowds gathered early this morning for Our Lady’s apparition to Medjugorje visionary, Mirjana, June 2, 2010. At the sign of the first few raindrops, umbrellas began popping out among all the pilgrims, but that was all, as the skies never did open up with rain this morning while pilgrims waited for Mirjana to arrive. Though the rain threatened all morning, it did not dampen the spirits of the pilgrims, nor did it keep many people from attending the apparition. The thousands who came were willing and joyful to even the possibility of getting wet in order to receive Our Lady’s blessing today.

Mirjana in sadness June 2

The end of the June 2, 2010 apparition is approaching and we can see the sadness on Mirjana’s face as, perhaps, the realization sets in that another “goodbye” is coming.

Mirjana in Joy June 2

Yet, sadness turns into an ecstatic joy as Mirjana sees Our Lady ascend back to Heaven, a beautiful sight for pilgrims who watch her head slowly tilt upwards, who can only imagine the Queen leaving the earth after this brief stay among Her children.

Mirjana possibly seeing dove

Is it at this moment that Mirjana suddenly sees the dove appear? Her expression changes from the joy of watching Our Lady, to a look of wonder or surprise. How do we even begin to contemplate that Mirjana may have beheld the Holy Spirit with her own eyes, just as those who saw Him alight on the head of Jesus more than 2,000 years ago? There is meaning behind every action of Our Lady. Some disregard the sign of the dove as being unimportant or insignificant, preferring only to receive the words of Our Lady, but the Dove accompanied these words today, and we must contemplate Her words also in light of the presence of the physical reality of the Holy Spirit.

Mirjana with crowds

As she does each month on the second, Mirjana finds the only empty spot amongst thousands of people who have been waiting for her arrival. Some of these pilgrims arrived ten, eleven, twelve hours earlier, sitting on uncomfortable rocks, willing to be rained upon and live with wet feet through a cold damp night just to experience this one moment that lasts only a few minutes. It is just these kinds of sacrifices that help to “clear the way” for Our Lady’s Son to enter hearts.

Pilgrims leaving the apparition June 2

The pilgrims who attended Mirjana’s apparition today, June 2, 2010, flow as a river into the paths leading through the vineyards towards the center of the village where St. James Church is found. Apparition Mountain can be seen behind them.


How to Incorporate "Clear the Way"
 

One of the many ways we in Community clear the way for Jesus to enter our hearts is to celebrate as a real feast those profound moments when Jesus enters the heart for First Holy Communion. We celebrate of First Holy Communion as it should be. The following is shared with you to see the seamless window to Heaven the Community of Caritas often experiences. Yesterday, June 1, 2010, was First Holy Communion for two of the school children of the Community. We lived in a very special way yesterday, Our Lady’s message of today of clearing the way by which Jesus will enter our hearts.

 

Joy And Anne First Communion

Joy and Anne, two Community children who received their First Holy Communion yesterday, June 1, 2010. These special moments are very big feast days in the Community. There was a lot of preparation in the preceding days to prepare for the Mass and the celebration afterwards especially through prayer. Each day, before this special day, Joy and Anne prayed the following prayer in preparation for their First Holy Communion:

“Lord Jesus, I come to You with my heart full of joy waiting to receive you in First Holy Communion. Please make me pure and ready to receive You. Dear Jesus, may You find in me a pleasing place in which to dwell and may You make my heart a flame of pure love for you. Amen.”

The Community joined them in this prayer each day with the following prayer for them:

“Dear Mary, we present Joy and Anne to You seeking for them purity and holiness. We give them completely into Your hands for Your plans and pray that their hearts and the hearts of all in our community be always pleasing to You, to Jesus and to the Father. We come before You also seeking healing for Joy. We bless them both with Your Special Blessing. Amen.

Joy and Anne, when praying for their First Holy Communion, asked Our Lady for a message for their preparation and picked the following message at random:

November 25, 1993

"Dear children, I invite you now in this time, like never before, to prepare for the coming of Jesus. Let little Jesus reign in your hearts and only then, when Jesus is your friend, will you be happy. It will not be difficult for you either to pray or offer sacrifices or to witness Jesus’ greatness in your life, because He will give you strength and joy in this time. I am close to you by my intercession and prayer and I love and bless all of you. Thank you for having responded to my call."

This message was also part of the novena the Community prayed for Joy and Anne.

Bundles of wheat from the Field of Apparitions

Small bundles of wheat, picked from the Field of Apparitions, were used to decorate each table for the celebration dinner afterwards. Wheat and bread were used as part of the decorations to symbolize the miracle that God gave us in granting the priest to take simple bread, made from wheat, and changing it into the actual body and blood of Jesus; for us to physically receive Him in our hearts.

Joy and Anne, Community Children Praying

At the end of the evening, the entire community gathered in the Bedroom of Apparitions to offer up prayers of thanksgiving for the beautiful graces granted to Joy and Anne on their First Holy Communion, along with all the graces received by the entire community. Joy and Anne are next to the bed, praying the fifth decade of the Luminous Mystery, The Institution of the Eucharist – the mystery they were able to truly live for the first time on their First Holy Communion day.
