For a long while now I have felt like our country is at war, within itself. Seems like now, children are committing serious crimes and as well are victims of serious crimes.
Everything is a grievous mess. I wrote the word "stay" on the bench in front of Our Lady's statue. Imagining Her looking down from Heaven, reading it. I was pleading with Her not to stop appearing in Medjugore, not to give up on us and I reminded Her of Her promise not to abandon us on this journey.
After kneeling and praying a Hail Mary, I rose up and went to walk away to continue with the morning chores and I felt a gentle nudge at my soul saying to me: "Stay with Me, do not give up on Us, do not abandon your faith. Stay!"
Yes Mother!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WILL stay!!!!!! I will NOT give up on Heaven and I will NOT abandon my faith!!! I will stay and fight for God as long as He allows me to breathe!!!!
A new surge of hope filled my entire being and I felt encouraged and ready to serve with less questions, just actions of love. That is how we serve, in humility, simplicity.....acts of love and kindness. Just like the song says, "Trust and Obey, for there's no other way to be happy in Jesus, than to trust and obey."
MESSAGE OF FEBRUARY 25, 2013 from Our Lady:
"Dear Children! Also today I call you to prayer. Sin is pulling you towards worldly things and I have come to lead you towards holiness and the things of God, but you are struggling and spending your energies in the battle with the good and the evil that are in you. Therefore, little children, pray, pray, pray until prayer becomes a joy for you and your life will become a simple walk towards God. Thank you for having responded to my call".
