Mother Mary said at Fatima: "My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the sure way which will lead you to God." St. Thomas Aquinas said: "The things we love tell us who we are!" With that in mind, I will try to post each day something about Our Blessed Lady, items about the Holy Roman Catholic Church, and public domain Catholic books too! I pray you enjoy my ministry!
Below are two albums of pictures that I created:

Dear Family of Mary!
children! Today I thank you and I want to invite you all to God's
peace. I want each one of you to experience in your heart that peace
which God gives. I want to bless you all today. I am blessing you with
God's blessing and I beseech you, dear children, to follow and to live
my way. I love you, dear children, and so not even counting the number
of times, I go on calling you and I thank you for all that you are doing
for my intentions. I beg you, help me to present you to God and to save
you. Thank you for having responded to my call." (June 25, 1987)
Today we will have the opportunity to be present for Mirjana's apparition through the live, online broadcast from Medjugorje at www.marytv.tv
! I want to share a short testimony given in 2014 by Aidan O'Kane, on
Fruit of Medjugorje, Episode 121. I feel it is a good preparation for
the apparition. We all have healing that we need. But the greatest
healing is the healing of the heart which can only come from Jesus, the
healing from guilt and sin, from brokenness and unforgiveness. This is
the healing that can bring peace, because it opens us up to being close
to Jesus, close to God the Father. Aidan shares just such a beautiful
healing that he witnessed in an old friend, and in himself while in
Aidan O'Kane - Fruit of Medjugorje Episode 121
name is Aidan, and I come from the north of Ireland but I live in
England. I came to Medjugorje for my first trip back in February 1991.
Totally unplanned. I had a free ticket with a parish in England, and I
came here not knowing anything about Medjugorje. I took some advice and I
was told to expect good weather and expect to be spiritually renewed.
So I came with my summer clothes, with a cardigan, and I didn't get the
weather I was expecting at all! It was winter weather and very wet.
what happened there, to make a long story short...there was a person
there that I thought I knew. An acquaintance that I hadn't seen in 9
years. She was the sister-in-law of a fellow I went to college with back
in Dublin. And this person, I thought I knew her, but from the waist
down, no, it wasn't her, because the woman I knew had a short leg.
towards the end of my pilgrimage, this woman came up to me and asked if
I was Aidan, and I said yes, I was. She introduced herself as Fennella.
And I said it was very exciting! So she turned to her friend and asked
if she should tell me...and I said, "Yes, please tell me!"
went on to explain that on Tuesday evening during the apparition, which
at that time was taking place on the left tower of the church, she
happened to be standing at the door to the tower, and her left leg, from
her knee through her thigh began to burn. And the burning sensation
continued right up until the Consecration at the Mass, which could have
been an hour. And after the burning sensation ceased, her legs were the
told me this story but she said that it wasn't the whole story. She
said that was only the physical miracle! I do believe that Medjugorje is
a place where miracles happen. And some are confirmed by physical
miracles. The actual miracle in her situation was a healing of the
memory, the healing of a guilt that she carried for some 30 years. Back
then she was going to a disco in Dublin with her sister, she was about
15 or 16, and a drunk driver ran into them. The sister was killed
outright, and as a result of the accident the growth in her leg was
stunted. So not only did she get the healing of the memory and of the
guilt, but she also got the growth back to her leg. And she said she was
going home after the healing, the miracle, to tell her mother the
truth. She carried this for 30 years, this guilt. So Medjugorje is about
peace! She received peace 30 years after a tragic event in her life.
personally received peace here. I had been to confession, but I
couldn't forgive myself. And it was one evening, and I was at Mass
outside, and a weight just lifted off my shoulders. And I can't explain
what the guilt was about, but it was just a pure weight that was lifted
off my shoulders. In Medjugorje Our Lady comes as the Queen of Peace,
and any pilgrim who comes to Medjugorje, comes at her own personal
invitation. Those are her own words. I heard them myself one night at an
apparition on the mountain. Coming here is a response to her personal
invitation. And what she wants to give every pilgrim here is peace.
think actually of the Christmas message which was very different
(Christmas 2013) because Our Lady didn't give a message. It was Jesus,
the Infant King of Peace, who said, "I am your peace. Live My
commandments." So peace can only come from Our Lord.
to think that Our Lady's first message to the people here was "Peace,
peace, peace, and only peace. Peace between God and man, and peace
between men." So Medjugorje is peace. No matter where you are, peace
pervades this place. Peace in your hearts and in your families.
please, take it from me! I am an example of responding to the
invitation, and now I have that peace. And I hope that anybody who comes
here can have that same peace. It is the peace, which Jesus says, our
world cannot understand.
approach the apparition today with hearts open and ready to be healed.
Our Lady wants us to be free within, capable of close union with God.
This is peace. Peace between God and man, and then peace between men!
