"Dear children! Also today I call you to prayer. May your relationship with prayer be a daily one. Prayer works miracles in you and through you, therefore, little children, may prayer be a joy for you. Then your relationship with life will be deeper and more open and you will comprehend that life is a gift for each of you. Thank you for having responded to my call." (September 25, 2013)

St. Vincent de Paul
Dear Family of Mary!
Fundamentals! Our Lady is all about fundamentals. In her messages, she gently but firmly leads us with the basic and most important building blocks of life. She wants us to be solidly built, headed in the right direction and equipped to help others to do the same. And so she gives us simple and deep advice in each message. Like a good mother, she moves us gently but firmly in the right direction.
On Wednesday (September 25), Denis and I arrived in Medjugorje, just as Holy Mass was beginning. This message had just been given through Marija. We had flown into Split on the same plane with Marija earlier in the day! And so, this message seemed very special. We were really greeted by Our Lady with this message! And it is a message we will use as our guide for this pilgrimage. Our Lady's words are like a road map for this moment for us.
She is calling Denis and me to go back to the very foundation of our relationship with God. She wants us to renew our daily call to prayer, to live that daily call with open hearts and willing spirits, so that prayer can continue to grow in us. If we hear nothing else in these days in Medjugorje, this message will be sufficient. "Prayer works miracles..." Prayer can make our stony hearts like flesh again. That is the miracle we constantly need, and the miracle we will welcome during our pilgrimage!
Thank you for praying for us during our time in Vienna! It was awesome. I have only a few pictures from St. Stephen's Cathedral, but I will share them with us, and a little from our subsequent trip to Medjugorje. Tomorrow, I will begin to share more from Medjugorje!
God bless you all!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
