Dear Family of Mary!

"...Pray for your shepherds. They belong to my Son. He called them. Pray that they may always have the strength and the courage to shine with the light of my Son." (June 2, 2015)

Our Lady asked us to pray for our shepherds on June 2. She asked that we pray for courage and strength for them. She wants them to shine with the light of Jesus. We could see from the pictures of Pope Francis in Sarajevo that he has courage and strength and he does shine with the light of Jesus!

As he was flying back to Rome on Saturday evening, Pope Francis answered a question about Medjugorje from the journalist Silva Tomasevic:

Question: There is a big interest surrounding the phenomenon of the Medjugorje apparitions. What can you tell us about this?

Answer from Pope Francis "When Benedict XVI was Pope, he set up a commission on Medjugorje that was headed by Cardinal Ruini and composed of other cardinals and theologians. They prepared a study and Ruini delivered it to me after a few years of work. They did a good job. Cardinal Müller (Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Ed.) told me that he was going to hold a dicastery meeting on this; I think it was held on the last Wednesday of the month. We are about to take some decisions and these will then be communicated. For now, bishops are just being given some guidelines." (Journalist Andrea Tornielli reported the question and answer. http://vaticaninsider.lastampa.it/en/the-vatican/detail/articolo/francesco-sarajevo-41595/ )

We had all been wondering if the Holy Father would say anything publicly about Medjugorje. He did not bring it up during his day in Sarajevo, but this answer shows that he has not forgotten Medjugorje.

We now know how to respond to Our Lady's call for prayer for our shepherds. The dicastery meeting needs the grace of the Holy Spirit! We can pray and fast for that! Our bishops need the strength and courage of the Holy Spirit to faithfully implement the guidelines they are given. We can pray and fast for that! The Pope needs the strength and courage of the Holy Spirit in order to best help Our Lady in her plans for peace. We can pray and fast for that! Who better to pray for the Church at this time than us? We have been trained in Our Lady's school. We have been trained to pray with the heart. We are able!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
