Gabrielle Colins talks about her testimony regarding Medjugorje
Many experiences of various pilgrims remain hidden from the public, but we also very often have chance to talk to those who do not hesitate to speak publicly about the special graces given to them at Gospa' intercession. Here we bring story of Gabrielle Colins from Ireland. She came to Medjugorje for the first time just because of her sister: „I was raised and grew as Catholic, but eventually with years, I stopped going to the church. Then I had a heart attack and I had to stop working, so I spent most of the time at the house. My sister was already in Medjugorje on few occasions and she proposed to me a trip to Medjugorje. When we arrived here, I really had nice time, but I never thought I would return ever again to Medjugorje. But already in February the following year, I came to Medjugorje. This is where one can feel ultimate peace, this is where the Mother dwells. I was very sick and I spent lots of time in the hospitals. I got really sick for another time just before I was to arrive here, few days before the Anniversary in Medjugorje. I did lots of lab tests and they told met hat the main artery, going from the heart to the brain was blocked for 70%. I was told that the surgery was a simple procedure, but in my case it was nearly impossible and I was not given lots of hope. The doctor told me that if I did not accept the surgery, it was just a matter of time when I would have died. He suggested that I invite my family so he would explain the whole case to them as well as the necessity and the urgency of the surgery. Instead, I decided to come to Medjugorje and to deal with this new situation upon my return. I was thinking of that as of the last week of my life and I wanted to handle all after my visit to Medjugorje. When I came here I felt perfect peace and there was not a single bit of anxiety or worries. It was one afternoon that I began to pray with my sister outside the church. I sat there for a while and suddenly in one moment I felt drops of rain falling on me. I looked up, but the sun was shining and the drops of rain were all over me. I was trying to understand what was going on, I was turning around me and I saw the rain was only on me. I asked my sister about this strange phenomenon and she peacefully responded that it was the blessing. We did not bring up that experience again. Upon my return home I felt such an amazing peace. I went to see my doctor who was determined to have the surgery scheduled as soon as possible. I wanted to have another exam and CT scan, even though he was saying how unnecessary that was since all of the tests were done few weeks ago. He was really angry as I did not want to listen to him and he ordered another scan. After the results came back, he was absolutely shocked as there was no trace of any previous blockage. He asked me what was going on, where did I go and what happened to me. I just told him that I went to Medjugorje, and he asked to keep those results as the unique case that happened in that hospital. Everything in my life changed after that experience. I feel immense love of God and joy in every moment and I just desire to share it with every person I happen to meet in my life." http://www.medjugorje.hr/en/
Our Lady's Monthly Message From Medjugorje to Marija
Dear children! Also today I am calling all of you to prayer. You cannot live without prayer, because prayer is a chain which brings you closer to God. Therefore, little children, in humility of heart return to God and to His commandments so that with all of your heart you are able to say: as it is in Heaven so may it be on earth. You, little children, are free to, in freedom, decide for God or against Him. See where Satan wants to pull you into sin and slavery. Therefore, little children, return to my heart so that I can lead you to my Son Jesus who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Thank you for having responded to my call.
Our Lady's 2nd of the month, Monthly Message To Mirjana
Dear children, I have called you and am calling you anew to come to know my Son, to come to know the truth. I am with you and am praying for you to succeed. My children, you must pray much in order to have all the more love and patience; to know how to endure sacrifice and to be poor in spirit. Through the Holy Spirit, my Son is always with you. His Church is born in every heart that comes to know Him. Pray that you can come to know my Son; pray that your soul may be one with Him. That is the prayer and the love which draws others and makes you my apostles. I am looking at you with love, with a motherly love. I know you; I know your pain and sorrows, because I also suffered in silence. My faith gave me love and hope. I repeat, the Resurrection of my Son and my Assumption into Heaven is hope and love for you. Therefore, my children, pray to come to know the truth; to have firm faith which will lead your heart and which will transform your pain and sufferings into love and hope. Thank you.
Pray for Priests
ADOPT A PRIEST IN PRAYER
Could you find in your heart to adopt a priest and pray for him daily?
In a letter Benedict XVI expressed his satisfaction for the campaign for Eucharistic adoration and spiritual "maternity" for the sanctification of the world's priests. The campaign calls especially for "women consecrated" to spiritually adopt priests to help them, through their self-offering, prayer, and penance. It is hoped that through this initiative there will rise up to God from every corner of the earth an incessant prayer of adoration, thanksgiving, praise, supplication and reparation, so as to give rise to a sufficient number of holy vocations to the priesthood.
Prayer for Priests
Lord Jesus, present in the Most Blessed Sacrament, and living perpetually among us through Your Priests, grant that the words of Your Priests may be only Your words, that their gestures be only Your gestures, and that their lives be a true reflection of Your life. Grant that they may be men who speak to God on behalf of His people, and speak to His people of God. Grant that they be courageous in service, serving the Church as she asks to be served. Grant that they may be men who witness to eternity in our time, traveling on the paths of history in Your steps, and doing good for all. Grant that they may be faithful to their commitments, zealous in their vocation and mission, clear mirrors of their own identity, and living the joy of the gift they have received. We pray that Your Holy Mother, Mary, present throughout Your life, may be ever present in the life of Your Priests. Amen.
