Archbishop Henryk Hoser -Shrine Will Be Enlarged

 

Medjugorje Shrine Will Be Enlarged

A group of architects are preparing the extension of the shrine of the alleged apparitions in Medjugorje, Bosnia, according to Archbishop Henryk Hoser, the Apostolic Visitator to Medjugorje.

Hoser told SarajevoTimes.com (January 6) that "the plan is to extend the space for liturgical celebrations", as the open square behind the Medjugorje parish church, which until now is used for big liturgies, does not protect the faithful from the weather.

For Hoser, the increasing number of pilgrims in Medjugorje is an important argument in favor of the place.

St. André Bessette to become known as the “Miracle Man of Montreal.

St. André Bessette cured over 10,000 people in his lifetime, according to estimates

The Canadian saint may be one of the greatest healers the Church has ever seen.

It didn’t take long for St. André Bessette to become known as the “Miracle Man of Montreal.” He was a simple lay brother, not wanting much attention, but graced by God with a deep and abiding faith.
Similar to Bl. Solanus Casey, Bessette was a porter, the “door man,” for the seminary and daily went about his business with little fanfare. He spent long hours on his knees and constructed a small chapel in honor of St. Joseph, where he spent much of his free time.
It didn’t take long for visitors to Bessette’s small chapel to begin reporting cures and special heavenly favors. It soon caught the attention of the local archbishop who said after visiting the chapel, “Shall I say that miracles are wrought in this shrine of St. Joseph? If I denied that such was the case, the ex-votive offerings in yonder pyramids would belie my words. I need make no investigation, I am convinced extraordinary occurrences have taken place; corporal cures, perhaps, although it; is quite easy to suffer illusion in such cases, and spiritual cures still greater have been wrought here. Sinners have come here, have prayed, and after prayer confessed their iniquities and gone away at peace with God.”
Crowds began to form and they started to ask Brother André for his personal prayers. Miracles continued to occur and they labeled him a “Miracle Man.” Bessette only laughed at the name and said, “It is St. Joseph who does these things, I am like you, simply a suppliant.”
While he never became a priest, Brother André sat with people, heard their many sufferings and prayed with them. Afterwards many were healed of their ailments, either physical or spiritual. According to some estimates, over 10,000 people were cured (with some estimates reaching as many as 125,000).
CRUTCHES,DISCARDED

Some of the crutches discarded after a miraculous healing through the intercession of Blessed Andre Bessette at the St. Joseph Oratory in Montreal.
Even after his death in 1937, people continued to report cures (and still do today). Author Patricia Treece writes about one such miracle for Catholic Exchange.
Flash forward to 1954: Joe Audino began having health problems. By 1957 they had intensified. By the next year, 1958, the advanced form of reticulum cell sarcoma was throughout his body. Radiation could no longer keep pace with the cancer. Joe was face-to-face with death, his diagnosis “terminal” and his death expected within thirty days. He was in too much pain to make a confession or receive Communion, he says. He simply lay hopelessly in bed, too weak to walk, with a football-size liver. In his troubles he thought of Br. André. And no matter how bad he felt, he never stopped praying for Br. André’s help. “I knew he’d be able to help me,” he says.
He consented to an experimental treatment that never helped anyone else. But shortly after, he was cancer free. His doctor Philip Rubin, chairman of radiation therapy at the University of Rochester Cancer Center, says, “There is no clear scientific explanation for his cure.”
St. André Bessette was a simple man, with a simple faith, a “mustard-seed faith” which could move mountains. He knew in his heart God could heal people and perform miracles, never doubting the power of God.
With a faith like his, nothing was impossible.

Medjugorje Message of January 2, 2019



Mirjana Soldo greets Our Lady today!

Dear Family of Mary!
Here is the January 2, 2019 message (through Mirjana Soldo):

Dear children! Sadly, among you, my children, there is so much battle, hatred, personal interests and selfishness. My children, so easily you forget my Son, His words, His love. Faith is being extinguished in many souls, and hearts are being grasped by material things of the world.

But my motherly heart knows that there are still those who believe and love, who are seeking how to draw all the closer to my Son, who are tirelessly seeking my Son - then, in this way, they are also seeking me. These are the humble and the meek with their pain and suffering which they carry in silence with their hopes and, above all, with their faith. These are the apostles of my love.


My children, apostles of my love, I am teaching you that my Son is not only asking for continuous prayers, but also for works and feelings - that you believe, that you pray, that with your personal prayers you grow in faith, that you grow in love. To love each other is what He asks for - that is the way to eternal life. My children, do not forget that my Son brought the light to this world, and He brought it to those who wanted to see it and receive it. You be those, because this is the light of truth, peace and love.

I am leading you in a motherly way to adore my Son; that you love my Son with me; that your thoughts, words and actions may be directed to My Son - that they may be in His name. Then my heart will be fulfilled. Thank you.
