Dear Family of Mary!
August 25, 1997 "Dear children! God gives me this time as a gift to you, so that I may instruct and lead you on the path of salvation. Dear children, now you do not comprehend this grace, but soon a time will come when you will lament for these messages. That is why, little children, live all of the words which I have given you through this time of grace and renew prayer, until prayer becomes a joy for you. Especially, I call all those who have consecrated themselves to my Immaculate Heart to become an example to others. I call all priests and religious brothers and sisters to pray the rosary and to teach others to pray. The rosary, little children, is especially dear to me. Through the rosary open your heart to me and I am able to help you. Thank you for having responded to my call."
These words from Our Lady in Medjugorje highlight the importance of the prayer of the Rosary in these days. Our Lady desires that we pray the Rosary with living faith, daily, for the salvation of souls. In Medjugorje the parish has taken up this call by praying two mysteries of the Rosary before evening Mass and praying a third mystery after Mass each day! Incredible!!
In Fatima, she gave the same importance to the Rosary, and asked all her children to pray it. In honor of the 100th anniversary of Our Lady's coming to Fatima, here is a beautiful synopsis of her call to pray the Rosary in Fatima, again from the website rosary-center.org.
August 8, 1985 "Dear children! Today I call you especially now to advance against satan by means of prayer. Satan wants to work still more now that you know he is at work. Dear children, put on the armor for battle and with the Rosary in your hand defeat him! Thank you for having responded to my call."
June 25, 1985 (Tuesday) "I invite you to call on everyone to pray the Rosary. With the rosary you shall overcome all the adversities which satan is trying to inflict on the Catholic Church. All you priests, pray the Rosary! Dedicate your time to the Rosary!"
January 25, 1991 "Dear children! Today, like never before, I invite you to prayer. Let your prayer be a prayer for peace. Satan is strong and desires to destroy not only human life, but also nature and the planet on which you live. Therefore, dear children, pray that through prayer you can protect yourselves with God's blessing of peace. God has sent me among you so that I may help you. If you so wish, grasp for the rosary. Even the rosary alone can work miracles in the world and in your lives. I bless you and I remain with you for as long as it is God's will. Thank you for not betraying my presence here and I thank you because your response is serving the good and the peace."
Our Lady of Fatima/Medjugorje, pray for us!! Lead us to prayer, especially the prayer of the Rosary, so that the Triumph of Your Immaculate Heart will be won!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
