Dear Family of Mary!
"Dear children! Today, I desire to thank you for your perseverance and call you to open yourselves to profound prayer. Prayer, little children, is the heart of faith and is hope in eternal life. Therefore, pray with the heart until your heart sings with thanksgiving to God the Creator who gave you life. I am with you, little children, and carry to you my motherly blessing of peace. Thank you for having responded to my call." (June 25, 2017)
Our Lady thanks us for our perseverance in this anniversary message, in the context of prayer. "Today, I desire to thank you for your perseverance and call you to open yourselves to profound prayer." She thanks us because we are still trying. We are still listening to her messages, still responding to her call in Medjugorje. And most of all we are still praying. She is happy that we persevere.
"Medjugorje is the spiritual center of the world."
Saint John Paul II
