St. Matthew, Apostle
Dear Family of Mary!
As Jesus passed by,
he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the customs post.
He said to him, "Follow me."
And he got up and followed him.
While he was at table in his house,
many tax collectors and sinners came
and sat with Jesus and his disciples.
The Pharisees saw this and said to his disciples,
"Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?"
He heard this and said,
"Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do.
Go and learn the meaning of the words,
I desire mercy, not sacrifice.
I did not come to call the righteous but sinners." (Mt 9:9-13)
Take, for instance, the most recent Fruit Show, #281. (Here is the link to the Fruit of Medjugorje page: http://marytv.tv/?page_id=167 ) In it Melanie shares her story. She was wounded as a child, and lost her way in drinking and faithlessness for many years. But she finally found herself in Medjugorje with her mother, and through the Cenacolo Community discovered the way to healing. Our Lady made the connection for her and gave her the inner conviction that she needed to join the community. She has been 4 years in the Cenacolo Community and now is ready to live her life. This healing happened very much through Our Lady of Medjugorje, who welcomed Melanie to her village and found the answer for her, the way to wholeness and joy.
Melanie was very much like the people who were gathered at St. Matthew's house that night with Jesus. She was sick and she needed a doctor. She found Jesus and Mary in Medjugorje and she has been healed. There are very many testimonies on our web page that share the same good news. Jesus and Mary have come not for the healthy, but for the sick. They are calling us all to come and be healed, to learn that we are loved, and that we are made for God. Medjugorje is a field hospital for the walking wounded. Come and be healed!
June 2, 2010 "Dear Children; Today I call you with prayer and fasting to clear the path in which my Son will enter into your hearts. Accept me as a mother and a messenger of God's love and His desire for your salvation. Free yourself of everything from the past which burdens you, that gives you a sense of guilt, that which previously led you astray in error and darkness. Accept the light. Be born anew in the righteousness of my Son. Thank you."
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
"Medjugorje is the spiritual center of the world."
