Medjugorje Monthly Message for June 25th

     Dear children! Today I thank you for living and witnessing my messages with your life. Little children, be strong and pray so that prayer may give you strength and joy. Only in this way will each of you be mine and I will lead you on the way of salvation. Little children, pray and with your life witness my presence here. May each day be a joyful witness for you of God's love. Thank you for having responded to my call.

Events this weekend in Church History

      One thousand, three hundred and fifteen years ago Saturday is the anniversary of Pope Saint Benedict II becoming the 81st successor of Peter. This Roman-born pontiff's papal reign was only a year but during rhtis time he restored the privelge of Sanctuary that had been by and large ignored by the various fueding factions. Thanks to his intercession, he liberated the Church from the interference of Byzantine Emperor Justinian or else the Church could very well have succumbed to the Greek influence.

composed by Father John Hampsch, C.M.F.

"Only by Prayer and Fasting can war be stopped."

Our Lady's message of April 25, 1992

"There are many who proclaim that soon I shall send My warning to all of mankind. This I solemnly assure you is truth. Yet you must not yield to speculation, My children, choosing this day or that, this hour or the next."

      Those words above come from Our Lord in Message #572 on December 4, 1994 to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart in which Jesus warns all His little ones not to spend so much time in speculation but to put into action what He and His Blessed Mother have been imparting. Our Lord reaffirms that the Warning and all He has foretold will come to pass, but in His time, not ours. In this message and His previous message of December 2nd He reinforces that we all need to spend more time with Him in the Blessed Sacrament; in other words pray more, talk less.
