Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! These days live all the main messages and keep rooting them in your hearts til Thursday. Thank you for having responded to my call." (November 22, 1984)

I prayed for this message, pulling it from my message box. It is an early message and demonstrates the daily guidance that Our Lady was giving to the parish, through the visionaries. It is so practical. "Live all the main messages and keep rooting them in your hearts..." This was Our Lady's school. Her messages provided a framework for the parish, a framework of spiritual practices that would help for move the parishioners forward in their life with God.

This is very good advice for us today. The main messages challenge us. They reveal to us what is most important to Our Lady. If we trust her, we are wise to attempt to put her main messages into practice in our lives.

In Kalamazoo, Michigan, Ivan Dragicevic gave a talk in which he emphasized the main messages. Here is his list of main messages:

What are those things to which our mother is calling us? What are those most important messages by which Our Lady is leading us? You know that throughout these 30 years Our Lady has given us very many messages. But if we were to focus just on the most important messages, I would like to emphasize these messages by which Our Lady is guiding us:

Prayer of the Heart
Penance and Fasting
Strong Faith
The Message of HOPE

These are the most important messages through which Our Lady is guiding us. Throughout these 30 years Our Lady has taken each one of these messages and she has simplified them and brought them closer to us so we can better understand them and live them in our lives. (Ivan Dragicevic, Kalamazoo, Michigan, 01/31/12)

It is always good to review this list, and reflect on how we are living these messages. As we await the message for January 25, 2015, maybe we can take some time to review our lives, and ask Our Lady how we can increase our commitment to her main messages. They are part of the peace plan that has been inaugurated in Medjugorje!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
