Dear children! I am with you all these years to lead you to the way of salvation. Return to my Son; return to prayer and fasting. Little children, permit for God to speak to your heart, because Satan is reigning and wants to destroy your lives and the earth on which you walk. Be courageous and decide for holiness. You will see conversion in your hearts and families; prayer will be heard; God will hear your cries and give you peace. I am with you and am blessing you all with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.
There is a story over at SpiritDaily about the Vatican’s Medugorje report. Here is part of it:
“A leaked report from the commission that studied Medjugorje contains surprising and at points startling conclusions, if initial translations are accurate — criticizing aspects of seer conduct but presenting a far more positive picture of the apparitions than most close watchers of the situation hoped for or anticipated.
The full report was given to an Italian journalist, David Murgia, and has already been bound in book form in his native language.
Perhaps never before in the history of what it calls Mariophanies,including those of Lourdes, Fatima, and Guadalupe, have there been higher-ranking clergy on an investigative commission. Five cardinals, an archbishop, three monsignors, and four priests composed the thirteen members who studied the site in Hercegovina for what it described as four “intense” years. In addition were three priests and a nun who served as voting experts, bringing the tally to seventeen, though the number present for ballots (votum) at times varied.”

Dear children! In this time of grace, I desire to see your faces transformed in prayer. You are so flooded by earthly concerns, you do not even feel that spring is at the threshold. You are called, little children, to penance and prayer. As nature fights in silence for new life, also you are called to open yourselves in prayer to God, in Whom you will find peace and warmth of the spring sun in your hearts. Thank you for having responded to my call
Dear children! Today I am calling you to pray even more, until you feel the holiness of forgiveness in your heart. There must be holiness in the families, little children, because there is no future for the world without love and holiness – because in holiness and joy, you give yourselves to God the Creator who loves you with immeasurable love. This is why He sends me to you. Thank you for having responded to my call.

I wish to all of you and your loved ones a Christmas filled with God’s abundant blessings. Let us remember, Christmas is not just one day. Continue to celebrate the Feast of Our Lord’s birth for the entire octave (8 days).
At the last daily apparition to Jakov Colo on September 12th, 1998, Our Lady told him that henceforth he would have one apparition a year, every December 25th, on Christmas Day. This is also how it was this year. The apparition began at 2:25 pm and lasted 9 minutes.
Our Lady came with little Jesus in her arms. Through Jakov, Our Lady gave the following message:
Dear children, today, on this day of grace, in a special way I am calling you to open your hearts and to implore Jesus to strengthen your faith. Children, through prayer with the heart, faith and works you will come to know what it means to live a sincere Christian life. Often times, children, darkness, pain and crosses overwhelm your life and your hearts. Do not waver in faith and ask ‘why’ because you think that you are alone and abandoned. Instead, open your hearts, pray and believe firmly and then your heart will feel God’s nearness and that God never abandons you – that He is beside you at every moment. Through prayer and faith, God will answer your every ‘why’ and transform your every pain, darkness and cross into light. Thank you.
Dear children! I am carrying my Son Jesus to you, for Him to bless you and reveal to you His love, which comes from Heaven. Your heart yearns for peace, of which there is less and less on earth. That is why people are far from God and souls are sick and heading towards spiritual death. I am with you, little children, to lead you on this way of salvation to which God calls you. ImageThank you for having responded to my call.
In this month’s message, Our Lady mentions peace three times. What is this peach she talks about? In the same message she talks of war. Does Our Lady mean the absence of war is peace? Of course the absence of war is peace. But, I don’t think she is talking about the absence of war. To gain the peace Our Lady talks about, she also states that we need to pray. Because only in prayer can we find true peace. True peace comes from God alone and everything else flows from that peace. Peace is a gift from God. “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. (Jn 14:27)” True peace is reconciliation with God, and in turn with other people. Reconciliation with God means that we are free from sin. This is a message of repentance, because without repentance there is no heavenly peace. If we, God’s children, and the children of Mary are reconciled with God we will have peace. The peace “only God gives.” This is an internal peace. This kind of peace is there despite everything around you. The martyrs know this peace. That is why they went to their deaths unafraid. What is there to fear if you are at peace, reconciled, with God. When you are at peace with God, you are living in sanctifying grace. We can only find this through a life lived in union with God through a faithful and fervent Sacramental life, which leads us to an intense life with God. Because of this union with God, we desire to be in His presence through prayer. Through our lives of prayer and fidelity to the Sacraments our hears begin to melt and “hatred and jealousy” begin to disappear. We make the Lord’s Prayer our own: “Forgives us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.” One who is forgiven realizes that they must forgive the other, since they themselves are forgiven through God’s infinite mercy. We must imitate the one who have forgiven us. May we respond to Our Lady’s call through frequent confession so that His peace may live in us and we might become like Him who has forgiven us. God love you!
Dear children! May this time be a time of prayer for you. Without God you do not have peace. Therefore, little children, pray for peace in your hearts and families, so that Jesus can be born in you and give you His love and blessing. The world is at war because hearts are full of hatred and jealousy. In the eyes, little children, peacelessness is seen because you have not permitted Jesus to be born in your lives. Seek Him, pray, and He will give Himself to you in the Child who is joy and peace. I am with you and I pray for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.
Dear children! Today I call you to prayer. May prayer be a balm to your soul, because the fruit of prayer is joy, giving and witnessing God to others – through your life. Little children, in complete surrender to God, He will take care of everything and will bless you; and your sacrifices will have meaning. I am with you and bless all of you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.
