First day of the Youth Festival in Medjugorje

Dear Family of Mary!

This evening in Medjugorje the Youth Festival will begin with the Opening Ceremony. Before Mass begins, the assembly will be greeted by a delegation from each country represented at the festival. It is very moving to see the young people approach the podium, carrying their country's flag and sharing a few words with the huge crowd of young people gathered behind St. James Church. Every year the list of countries seems to grow! These young people are a great hope for our world!

Mary TV is going to live stream the Evening Program of the Festival each day. It is a huge project for our little team, but they are up for the challenge. We will also be gathering testimonies of the young people for our "Fruit of Medjugorje" series. And we will try to record some of the talks for later viewing as well.

Please join us for this incredible gathering of young people from the entire world. And let's pray for the young people that they will receive all the graces that God has prepared for them during this festival. They are our future!

Our Lady once said, "Dear children! I am calling you to a more active prayer and attendance at Holy Mass. I wish your Mass to be an experience of God. I wish especially to say to the young people: be open to the Holy Spirit because God wishes to draw you to Himself in these days when satan is at work. Thank you for having responded to my call." (May 16, 1985)

Our Lady's call to the young people in this message has been answered in a spectacular way through the youth festivals. God has drawn so many young people to himself in Medjugorje, protecting them from the enemy! Let's pray for them during these days!

PS. Our Novena for priests continues:
Day 5
We pray for our dear priests, that the ray of God's grace may illuminate their ways. (February 2, 2014)   Our Father... Hail Mary... Glory be...

Let us pray: O Jesus, our great High Priest, hear my humble prayers on behalf of your priests. Give them a deep faith, a bright and firm hope and a burning love which will ever increase in the course of their priestly life.
In their loneliness, comfort them. In their sorrows, strengthen them. In their frustrations, point out to them that it is through suffering that the soul is purified, and show them that they are needed by the Church; they are needed by souls; they are needed for the work of redemption. Amen.

"Medjugorje is the spiritual center of the world."
Saint John Paul II
