Dear Family of Mary!
"Dear children! With joy, also today I call you to open your hearts and to listen to my call. Anew, I desire to draw you closer to my Immaculate Heart, where you will find refuge and peace. Open yourselves to prayer, until it becomes a joy for you. Through prayer, the Most High will give you an abundance of grace and you will become my extended hands in this restless world which longs for peace. Little children, with your lives witness faith and pray that faith may grow day by day in your hearts. I am with you. Thank you for having responded to my call." (January 25. 2012)
Our Lady gave us this message on Wednesday through Marija. What a beautiful message it is! Full of hope and joy! Our Lady has been speaking to us for over 30 years now. She has very faithfully given us monthly messages for 25 years. Each month, we receive another message to guide us through our days.
It occurred to me that one reason Our Lady has been so faithful is speaking to us through the visionaries is that she wants us to get used to her voice. She wants us to get very accustomed to the way she speaks, her tone of voice, her choice of words, the topics that are most important to her, etc. She has been letting us get to know her through her messages! One reason for this may be that she wants us to be able to recognize her "voice" so that we will not be fooled by messages that are not from her. She wants our discernment to be sharpened. If we know her voice, if we know her way of speaking, we will be less likely to be fooled by an imposter. Notice that she said in this message,"With joy, also today I call you to open your hearts and to listen to my call." She wants us to listen to her call, her voice, her words!
Just such a situation came up on Wednesday (January 25). Somehow an internet message began to circulate that purported to be from Ivan (spelled Yvan) of Medjugorje, warning us of war and sending many people into a state of alarm. Emails were flying! But it was pretty easy to see that the "voice" behind this email was not Our Lady of Medjugorje. Anna Shawl checked with Ivan about the email, and he assured her it was NOT from him. It was a fake.
And it was also interesting that it was sent out at the same time as the Monthly Message of Our Lady through Marija. I would say many people didn't even pay attention to Our Lady's regular Monthly Message for January 25, 2012, because they were so distracted by the message about war from "Yvan". And if you contrast the two messages, they are diametrically opposed. The fake email was full of fear, alarm, and panic. Our Lady of Medjugorje speaks of peace, of conversion, of prayer, of joy and of her presence with us. You can see all these things in the message of January 25, 2012.
We have been given a beautiful opportunity to get to know Our Lady, to experience her love, to hear her words and manner of speaking, to drink in her gentle, motherly ways. Let's not waste time with other messages. Our Lady is with us in Medjugorje, and she is helping us to hear her voice, so that we will be able to discern her call in the days ahead. Her call is a call to joy, a call to love, a call to hope and peace. Her call is a call to meet Jesus. Let's respond!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
