Thanksgiving Day USA
November 22, 2018 A.D.

We continue to reflect that thirty years ago in 1988, Our Lady first came to our land. Marija’s time here in our home was the first time that a Medjugorje visionary had crossed an ocean and spent nearly three months away from the village. Our Lady said in our Bedroom on this day thirty years ago, November 22, 1988:

“Live in humility all the messages that I give. I want you to be carriers of peace.”

Our Lady then gave another blessing, a blessing of peace, and left.

Our Lady’s blessing of peace has created here a witness of peace which the world does not have but will have in the future. The peace here did not come without war. Turning away from many things which the world offers, getting rid of television, etc. did not go well for our family. Many trials, sufferings and difficulties were the result of Our Lady’s blessing of peace, but, when the war is over, and the storm clears, a physical peace which can only be a result of choosing God is left. Our Lady has not come, as the Queen of Peace to the whole world, and not to leave it without peace when She no longer appears. What our family experienced was a microcosm of what the whole world will experience. The world will have a realization of peace with the realization of the secrets of Medjugorje. This is already beginning to happen.

When Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, many praying people understood that his election was a gift from God. We understood that the Consecrations of Our Nation to Our Lady in Her presence here in 2008, 2009, 2012 and 2013 had much to do with this. President Trump has “carried peace” through maintaining a strong arm to enforce peace. An aircraft carrier carries peace, in the form of about 100 planes on the deck which can be sent on a moment’s notice anywhere in the world. When Our Lady says to “carry peace” that does not mean to be pacifist. How does this “carrying peace” play out?

Our Lady on Apparition Mountain

The statue on Apparition Mountain in Medjugorje surrounded by thousands during one of Ivan’s prayer groups in 2010. This statue given by Korean pilgrims, has been prayed in front of by millions of pilgrims. Our Lady has been taking all of these prayers, never forgetting the devout Korean pilgrims who gave this statue.

On Apparition Mountain in Medjugorje, a statue marks one of the spots where Our Lady has appeared. This statue was a gift from a group of pilgrims, given around 2001. Their prayer in giving this gift was that Our Lady would bless their land with peace. They were from a land which has had very difficult times, at times seemingly on the brink of war. Our Lady has appeared at this spot numerous times to Medjugorje visionary Ivan, praying for peace and giving Her blessing. From 2001 until now, did Our Lady forget about these devout pilgrims? No, Our Lady answered their prayers on November 8, 2016, with the election of Donald Trump. Just when it seemed as if everything in their land was spinning out of control, along comes an unlikely carrier of peace to their land found in President Trump. These devout pilgrims were from Korea. We are seeing a real possibility of peace in Korea, without a shot having to be fired. For 70 years all attempts for peace failed. Trump-trumped, where all plans failed for peace. Yes, there may still be struggles, but Our Lady has this whole situation under control, with Her blessing of peace and a statue placed by Koreans, on the apparition spot, to remind Her to give Korea peace.

So today, which we celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States, we are thankful to God for having sent Our Lady to the world and that She gave Her blessing here, creating another place of conversion consecrated by Her presence in Alabama, directly connected to Medjugorje and that we chose peace in the time of grace. We thank God for all of you our Field Angel supporters who give to support this work of conversion. As we enter a time in preparation for Christmas, we are remembering you all in prayer at the Holy Sites of the Bedroom of Apparitions, the Field of Apparitions, and the Cross for the Soul of America, especially those who are away from home, serving this Great Nation, carrying peace.

With a Thankful Heart,
