Novena to Our Lady, Queen of Peace, Day 4

Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! Today I call you all to pray for peace and to witness it in your families so that peace may become the highest treasure on this peaceless earth. I am your Queen of Peace and your mother. I desire to lead you on the way of peace, which comes only from God. Therefore, pray, pray, pray. Thank you for having responded to my call."  (April 25, 2009) 

Today we remember with Vicka Ivankovic-Mijatovic the day that Vicka and Jakov went to heaven, hell and purgatory with Our Lady:

Our Lady says that she has been praying for peace, and she invites us to pray for the same thing, and to support her with our prayers. And this evening when Our Lady appears at 5:40 I am going to recommend all of you and all of your petitions to Our Blessed Mother. At that time of the apparition please open your heart and recommend to her all your needs and your desires.

I am sure that many of you know about the experience that I and Jakov had at the beginning of the apparitions when Our Lady showed us heaven, hell and purgatory. We were at Jakov's and Our Lady appeared, and she said, "Now you are going to go with me." And then Jakov who was only ten, thought that to go with Our Lady meant to die, and so he generously offered, "Our Lady, why don't you take Vicka, since she has 7 brothers and sisters and I am the only son of my mother." And I personally was thinking, How long will we travel, how many days will we travel up or down. Our Lady gave me her left hand and her right to Jakov and she took us with her. And the ceiling just opened for us to go through. And in a second we came to Paradise. I saw an endless space. I saw the light that does not exist here on earth. I saw people who looked very much alike, and they were dressed in long gowns in pastel colors, green, yellow and pink. They were all walking around talking and praying and little angels were flying around. And then Our Lady said "Look at all these souls in Paradise, how happy they are! This is the joy that cannot be described, that does not exist here on earth." And there was endless space.

In purgatory we were not able to see persons but it was very foggy. And one could perceive that the souls were suffering there. And Our Lady said that all those souls here in purgatory are waiting for our prayers so they can be transported to paradise.

And in hell we saw fire. We saw people who looked normal, but when they entered the fire, they were cursing, and transforming into different animal forms. And Our Lady said that all those souls in hell got there because it was their own will and decision. They are souls who here and now live and do everything against God and when they die they just continue the same way of life. Our Lady said that there are many people who live here on earth who think that when they die everything will be over. Our Lady said this is the biggest mistake. We are just travelers here on earth and when we die life goes on. (Vicka Ivankovic - Mijatovic, speaking to pilgirms on October 25, 2013)

Certainly peace can only be found through union with our God, and in His Kingdom. Our Lady has come to direct our eyes heavenward, where our hope is found. May we live in that hope, and share it with all we meet.

Let us pray:
Prayer to the Queen of Peace

Mary, Mother of God and Our Mother, Queen of Peace!
You came to us to lead us to God.
Obtain for us the grace
not only to say:
"Be it done to me according to Your will!",
but to live it, as You did.
Into Your hands we put our hands,
so that You may lead us to Him
amidst these afflictions and woes.
Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Creed, 7 Our Fathers, 7 Hail Marys, 7 Glory Bes....

Veni Creator Spiritus - Come Holy Spirit
Come Holy Spirit, Creator, come
best gift of God above,
the living spring, the living fire,
sweet unction and true love.

Thou Who are called the Paraclete,
from Thy bright heavenly throne,
come, take possession of our souls,
and make them all Thine own.

Thou who are sevenfold in Thy grace,
finger of God's right hand,
His promise, teaching little ones
to speak and understand.
O guide our minds with Thy blest light,
with love our hearts inflame;
and with Thy strength, which never decays,
confirm our mortal frame.

Far from us drive our deadly foe,
true peace unto us bring,
and through all perils lead us safe
beneath Thy sacred wing.

Through Thee may we the Father know,
through Thee the eternal Son,
and Thee the Spirit of them both,
thrice-blessed Three in One.

All glory to the Father be,
with his co-equal Son:
the same to Thee, great Paraclete,
while endless ages run. Amen.

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful, and enkindle in them the fire of Your love.
- Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created.
- And You shall renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray: God, who taught the hearts of thy faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant that by the gift of the same Spirit we may be always truly wise and ever rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Let us pray the Rosary!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
