Medjugorje: Our Lady's Anniversary Message of June 25, 2009

Message of June 25, 2009-Be My Extended Hands.

"Dear children! Rejoice with me, convert in joy and give thanks to God for the gift of my presence among you. Pray that, in your hearts, God may be in the center of your life and with your life witness, little children, so that every creature may feel God’s love. BE MY EXTENDED HANDS for every creature, so that it may draw closer to the God of love. I bless you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call."
Our Lady speaks about the 10th Secret on 28th Anniversary June 25th, 2009, began as a cool, sunny day in Medjugorje. As the village swelled with jubilant pilgrims celebrating the 28th anniversary of the apparitions, however, dark storm clouds began to form on the horizon. Soon, Medjugorje was being pelted with heavy rain, strong winds and lightning. Our Lady graced Medjugorje with several messages for the anniversary, first appearing to Ivanka Ivankovic-Elez for her regular annual apparition. Ivanka had the apparition at home in the presence of her family. Ivanka said the following about her apparition today:“Our Lady remained with me for 10 minutes and spoke to me of the tenth secret. Our Lady said: ‘Dear children, I call you to be apostles of peace. Peace, peace, peace.'"Today's apparition was certainly interesting in that Our Lady spoke about the tenth secret. In fact, she has spoken to Ivanka about the secrets in many of her recent annual apparitions. A striking sequence stands out when one looks at the accounts of her most recent apparitions.
Reflection by (Sr. Isabel) Twenty-eight years ago, Our Lady reportedly appeared to six young children in the parish of Medjugorje. Today, 28 years later, she is still appearing to three of them and she is still asking for our conversion. Her love for her children is beyond explanation, but it is very real. I trust you will pray through the message and take it to heart. Our Mother is calling us to be witnesses of love. She wants us to be her extended hands. What an awesome request!Our Lady rejoices in coming to visit her children and wants us to give thank to God, our heavenly Father, for the gift of her presence among us. If you have ever gone to Medjugorje, you know the blessings of peace and joy that are experienced there. With God as the center of our lives and with hearts open to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, we can be the witnesses Our Lady is requesting. Of ourselves we are not able to do so, but with God's grace, the Holy Spirit and Mary's intercession, it is possible. In these days, we need faithful witnesses of God's love and His presence among us. Happy Anniversary! Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us!
