"Dear children! With joy in the heart I love you all and call you to draw closer to my Immaculate Heart so I can draw you still closer to my Son Jesus, and that He can give you His peace and love, which are nourishment for each one of you. Open yourselves, little children, to prayer - open yourselves to my love. I am your mother and cannot leave you alone in wandering and sin. You are called, little children, to be my children, my beloved children, so I can present you all to my Son. Thank you for having responded to my call." (June 25, 2013)

Dear Family of Mary!
"You are called, little children, to be my children, my beloved children, so I can present you all to my Son."
I want to share the transcription of a testimony from the "Fruit of Medjugorje" Episode 73, for June 24, 2013. You can watch it at www.marytv.tv . This testimony is short, but illustrates perfectly what Our Lady expresses in this message of June 25, 2013. It is the testimony of Augusto from Italy:
Augusto on "Fruit of Medugorje" Episode 74!!
My name is Augusto. I come from Italy. I will try to share my simple experience that changed my life. "Try" because of my English. And second, because certain things you cannot translate...certain things that happen inside you cannot translate into words, at least I can't.
So the story starts a few years ago, actually five years ago...one night, as my wife said, we were looking at a program about Medjugorje. I didn't know anything about it. Actually at that time I didn't have a deep connection with Mary. With Jesus and God, yes, but with Mary it was not so strong. So seeing this [program on Medjugorje on the TV] I felt immediately, "I have to go. We have to go." It was stronger than me.
So we came on an airplane, with a pilgrimage. And the first day was a rainy day, but I decided to go on Podbrdo. And when the rain became stronger everybody left. So I was there alone. The only two there were Mary and me! And with this rain, I felt like clean...clean...from all my doubts, all my sins. I felt blessed. And from that point on, I could not do anything else. I was just saying "yes." I had not merit. It was just grace.
Now I have to come. [Just like] every day I have to go to Mass. Some things have changed totally in my life. I am more open to others. And Mary is the Mother now. She guides me. Normally I used to pray, and relate deeply with the Boss. Not so much with Mary. And this has changed totally. Now I am praying every day to her, and I know that she is my Mother. And it is a very incredible feeling, this.
It is difficult to express, but it is stronger than me. Also now, we come, though not with a pilgrimage group, for five days. But I have to come. It is simply like this. And the whole time is a blessing. And the amazing thing is that every time that I have a stronger connection with her it is when I am on Podbrdo and it is raining! Even today it is like a kind of blessing.
So I feel that Mary called me because otherwise I would not be here, for sure. And I will always be devoted to her, because she brings me to God. I have understood that this is the channel. Before, I didn't know this. Or at least I didn't experience it.
So to the people who may be listening to this funny English I would just recommend that you pray and recommend that you give it a chance. Give a chance to Mary to take all of you into her arms and bring you to God, because this is the way to do this. Thank you.
Thank you, Augusto, for sharing so deeply from your heart what Our Lady has done for you.
Our Lady called Augusto to come to Medjugorje. The call came through a TV program! But it was straight from Our Lady. And he tells us that this call was stronger than he was!! He was drawn to her inextricably. (If you watch episode 74, Augusto's wife had the same call!) And when Augusto arrived in Medjugorje, he immediately went to Apparition Hill (Podbrdo). It was there that he experienced Our Lady, alone in the rain. It was there that he understood that he was her child, her beloved child, and that she would present him to Jesus. And all that Augusto could say was "yes." It was all grace!!
I love Augusto's parting advice: "Give a chance to Mary to take all of you into her arms and bring you to God, because this is the way to do this." St. Louis de Montfort could not say it better. Our Lady longs to take us in her arms and bring us to God! We only need to say yes when she calls!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
