May 2, 2010 Message Medjugorje - Always More Than You Think Pictures from ApparitionPrayer for Nonbelievers Send Your Feedback

Anniversary - type crowds descended upon the village of Medjugorje for Mirjana’s apparition of Our Lady on May 2, 2010 at the Blue Cross. Large crowds came into the village on Friday and Saturday in anticipation of this Sunday apparition.
 

Many pilgrims spent the night in vigil on the mountain and by 4:00 a.m., much of the area around the Blue Cross was already backed up with pilgrims. As the morning progressed, the entire base of Apparition Mountain by the Blue Cross was packed. Rosaries filled the time awaiting the apparition.
 

Mirjana arrived about 8:30 a.m. and began praying. The apparition began at 8:46 a.m. Mirjana looked serious as she spoke to Our Lady and Mirjana did not show as much change in emotion as usual. The apparition lasted 3 minutes until 8:49 a.m. When the apparition ended, Mirjana quickly bent over and prayed awhile.
 


Our Lady’s Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s May 2, 2010 Message
Given to Mirjana Soldo on the Day for Nonbelievers

 

“Dear children; Today, through me, the good Father calls you to, with your soul filled with love, set out on a spiritual visitation. Dear children, be filled with grace, sincerely repent for your sins and yearn for the good. Yearn also in the name of those who have not come to know the perfection of the good. You will be more pleasing to God. Thank you.”


Our Lady blessed all our religious articles and in a special way Our Lady blessed all priests present.
 


Medjugorje - Always More Than You Think

Radio WAVE

The 2nd Joyful Mystery: The Visitation. “Mary set out” in haste to the hill country to ‘visit’ Elizabeth, who when hearing Mary’s greeting, was “filled with the Holy Spirit. Elizabeth’s husband, Zachariah, had been told by an angel, who had appeared in the temple to him months before, that his aged and sterile wife would conceive and the child was to be called John, and he would be “filled” with the Holy Spirit.
 

 

Zachariah, who could not speak after the angel’s visitation, upon the birth of his son when writing down on a tablet his son’s name, was again able to speak. Fear descended upon all the neighborhood and then throughout the hill country. Zachariah, “filled” with the Holy Spirit, sang out his canticle which in part said:
 

 

“Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel because He has ‘visited’ and ransomed His people.”

 

Speaking of John, Zachariah said:
 


“For you shall go before the Lord to prepare straight paths for Him…Giving His people a knowledge of salvation in freedom from their sins.”

 

Medjugorje is so Biblical as to be surreal, whether you go there physically or in the heart to seek a “spiritual visitation”. Medjugorje is a Joyful Mystery in which the good Father, through His servant John, in this case Mary who in this Her time, filled with the Holy Spirit, has come to prepare the world for the second coming of Her Son and to “fill” us with the Holy Spirit. This can only be achieved by “sincerely repenting from your sins.” Through Our Lady, the good Father ‘calls’ us to the spiritual encounter, a visitation with Our Lady, who through Her messages is filling us with knowledge, as Zachariah’s words state:

 

“Giving His people a knowledge of salvation in freedom from their sins.”

 

Do you not know Our Lady’s coming to Medjugorje is the second most important event in world history, second only to Jesus’ life upon the earth? Do you not comprehend Her messages reveal the plan, great plan, for the world’s salvation, as Zachariah said, “giving knowledge of salvation”?
 

 

January 25, 1987

 

“…a great plan for the salvation of mankind…”
 

 

Do you know that none of this can be known without sincere repentance which is the first step to opening one’s ears and heart to comprehend Our Lady’s spiritual visitation?
 

 

Many approach Medjugorje with too much intellectualism. They are filled with it, which allows little or no room for them to be completely opened to Our Lady's messages. Our Lady, as She often does on the day for non-believers, singles out the priests and blesses all the priests. Everyone in the Medjugorje Movement has experienced occasions when priests have balked or are skeptical of Medjugorje. Medjugorje cannot be approached through complexity and the mind filled with intellectualism. Rather, a real “spiritual visitation” of approaching Medjugorje is with simplicity and the heart ‘filled with love.’ Any other approach to Medjugorje tends to give reproach against Medjugorje. And, just as Zachariah the priest doubted the angel and lost his ability to speak, so too the same happens today in our time of priests and laity alike. But once this is understood, all souls must begin this spiritual visitation with sincere repentance. We will then, as Zachariah, be able to speak again – speak of the great spiritual visitation of the Holy Virgin Mother who is being given a new strength and strong presence upon the earth that She has never had before. Repent and speak. Speak to all! You, both priests and laity, that by proxy that we can save non-believers through Our Lady’s call for the salvation of the world. A call being sounded for the last time.
 


May 2, 1982

 

"I have come to call the world to conversion for the last time."
 

 

In Yearning for Souls’ Salvation,

A Friend of Medjugorje

 

P.S. Listen to the Radio Wave Broadcast titled: War Zone, Fractured Family and the Good Father, where A Friend of Medjugorje speaks of the message today to Mirjana and it's application to your daily life.



Pilgrims waiting at the Blue Cross

Most of these pilgrims, from all over the world, arrived in the very early hours of May 2, 2010, to await Our Lady's apparition to Mirjana. Some were covered in blankets, others in plastic to ward off the cold and morning dew. Petitions are gathered at the base of the Blue Cross, including all those sent in to Medjugorje.com. The devotion to Our Lady and Her apparitions is as strong as it ever has been as Medjugorje approaches its 29th year anniversary next month.

 

Mirjana Smiling at Our Lady

Mirjana as she sees Our Lady arrive in the apparition today, May 2, 2010. Mirjana is a wife and a mother. She spends most of her time in her home, taking care of her family and the pilgrim groups who stay with them. In this, she is no different than most of the women in Medjugorje who are occupied with the same tasks—house cleaning, food preparation, at the kitchen sink doing the dishes. Yet, she alone, has a duty that no one else can fill—to bring Our Lady to the multitudes who flow into Medjugorje a day or two before the second of every month with all their longings, desires and needs. Blessed is she amongst all women.

 

Mirjana Intensely looking at Our Lady

Mirjana received Our Lady's message today, May 2, 2010. The concentration on Mirjana's face is always intense when Our Lady relays the message. What words will be spoken in the world today that will carry with them the impact, gravity, importance and power to change lives more than what Mirjana received today? Mirjana's attitude, posture, concentration, intensity are all messages to us as to how to receive these words of Our Lady—not just today, but with every message given. Our whole self—body, mind and spirit—should be captivated by these words from Heaven. As Our Lady once said, we are the ones responsible for Her messages.

 

Mirjana relaying the message

Mirjana, just after the May 2, 2010 apparition ended, relays the message given to her by Our Lady. Another month will pass before she looks into the loving eyes of the Virgin Mary. It is seen on her face, in her humble posture, the "weight" of such a "wait."

 

Pilgrims walking down the mountain

Each month, tens of thousands of new "witnesses" attend Mirjana's second of the month apparition. These pilgrims, who are leaving the area of the Blue Cross where Mirjana received Our Lady, will leave Medjugorje in a few days. They will go back to their homes in the United States, France, Germany, Japan, Australia, Africa, Russia, Mexico—and other nations of the world, and just like the Apostles of Jesus, they will witness to the wonders they have seen in this little tiny village, a village many call today the New Jerusalem.

 

Pilgrims walking and cow

Pilgrims are seen walking back to their pansions or to the church along a dirt path after attending Mirjana's May 2, 2010 apparition today at the Blue Cross. Though there is always more and more building going on in Medjugorje, thankfully there are still signs of the rural life that used to be the common life of all of the villagers at the time the apparitions began nearly 29 years ago.

I saw the last picture of Mirijiana as she states the words of our Lady. The sad and humble look as you stated, "now she waits for another month to look in the eyes of Mary". My heart sank as I saw her. It's been several years since I was to Medjugorie and still cry to be there and so home-sick for it and Mary. Blessed Mother even though I can't be in Medjugorje please bring Medjugorje to me by placing yourself and your son in my heart always. We are so busy here in the U.S. that we forget.

I did not hear of Medjugorje until about three years ago. I heard Colleen Willard tell of her miracle. It was a very emotional evening. I wear the bracelet rosary she gave out everyday. I also heard Ivan speak and was very moved when Our Lady appeared to him. I look forward to receiving emails announcing the apparitions. I feel that some day I wish to go there and it needs to be soon as my husband and I are already in our sixties. I pray that soon we will be able to go.

The Feast of Visitation has a special meaning to me. Maybe because it is during my meditation on this feast that I finally realized the part of our Blessed Mother in the mystery of salvation: how she is filled with the Holy Spirit, and how late have I loved her! And then, Jesus spoke about how Capernaum failed to see the truth in its hour of visitation. I pray that may we never fail to see and receive with open hearts all these graces that are being poured on us at this moment of Visitation.

Beautiful message from our Blessed Mother, wonderful commentary from our friend of Medjugorje, and inspirational pictures of lovely Mirjana and pilgrims. This month the message is a complete course in the school of love! Set out...Begin today. Repent. Desire good for yourself and others. Become more pleasing to God in this way, and filled with His grace. All of us are called by our Father. Thank you to all of you what a blessing.

This has made me understand better Our Lady's prompting for praying and for repentance as expressed in the Canticle of Zaccharia, "...giving him knowledge and salvation in freedom of his sins.." We need to prepare for what people call as a last chance to get it right with the Lord... The great day of enlightenment or warning. The day we will experience our sins the way God sees them. Thank you for this.

The best breakdown and analysis of a message I have seen. Because you know Scripture and all our Mother's messages so well you are able to integrate and highlight the meaning of the present one. Thank you for serving her and us.

Recall the words of Elizabeth in greeting Our Lady, "And how does this happen to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me?" When I think of our grace in this time of Our Lady's visitation, the love of God, Our Lady's love for us how Blessed are we who experience the grace of her visitation. How often am I in need of repentance in my response to her visitation? And after I am strengthened it becomes my responsibilty to set out in love on a spiritual visitation to others.thanks Caritas!

We are so truly blessed to have the love of our lady present herself to Mirjana. This is truly a blessing to all of us whom love her son Jesus and our Lord! She comes to us fully knowing we are sinners. She asks us to repent, sin no more, convert our entire heart and soul to our most high Jesus Christ. Thank you for sharing these messages, they are inspiring, and we too can feel her love and presence in our homes through the internet! Our Lady is helping us pave a path for eternity!
