Seventh Sunday of Easter
(Ascension in some dioceses)

Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! Today I invite you to open yourselves to God by means of prayer so the Holy Spirit may begin to work miracles in you and through you. I am with you and I intercede before God for each one of you because, dear children, each one of you is important in my plan of salvation. I invite you to be carriers of good and peace. God can give you peace only if you convert and pray. Therefore, my dear little children, pray, pray, pray and do that which the Holy Spirit inspires you. Thank you for having responded to my call."  (May 25, 1993)

Peace is the great focus of Our Lady's plan for our world in these days.  She has come as the Queen of Peace, and she is working miracles of peace in individual hearts through her presence in Medjugorje.  Our Lady helps us to open to the Holy Spirit, who wants to lead us moment by moment into peace, into God's love for us.  We long for this peace that comes from God.  Today with all our hearts, let's pray to receive the Holy Spirit, who brings us peace.

Novena to the Holy Spirit Day 3

Let us bow down in humility at the power and grandeur of the Holy Spirit. Let us worship the Holy Trinity and give glory today to the Paraclete, our Advocate.

Oh Holy Spirit, by Your power, Christ was raised from the dead to save us all. By Your grace, miracles are performed in Jesus' name. By Your love, we are protected from evil. And so, we ask with humility and a beggar's heart for Your gift of Peace within us.

The Saints were tempted, attacked and accused by the devil who is the destroyer of peace. When we are accused by the devil, come to our aid as our Advocate and give us Peace that lasts through all trials! Amen.

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, through Christ Our Lord,  Amen.
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PS. Yesterday was a beautiful, windy day in Medjugorje.  Denis and I spent the day working on Mary TV tasks, and we prayed the Rosary from outside, behind the Church, among the trees and benches.  It was wonderful to sit among the crowds of people pouring into Medjugorje for the Evening International Mass.

I also had time to go to confession today. The lines for confession were long.  It is beautiful to witness this healing sacrament at work.  How much Jesus loves us!!

Just before Mass began I noticed a group of people witnessing the miracle of the sun.  I took a few quick pictures of them, and then of the sun.  I don't think I captured the miracle, but it was beautiful anyway.  The sky and sun in Medjugorje speaks volumes of God and His love.

Mass itself was packed, a sea of people.  Truly Holy Mass is the center of life in Medjugorje.  All the graces here flow from the Eucharist. Thanks be to God!

More tomorrow!
