Message, 25. August 2019

“Dear children! Pray, work and witness with love for the Kingdom of Heaven that it may be good for you here on earth. Little children, God will bless your effort a hundred fold; you will be witnesses among peoples, souls of unbelievers will feel the grace of conversion and Heaven will be grateful for your efforts and sacrifices. Little children, witness with the Rosary in hand that you are mine and decide for holiness. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Six Herzegovinian Franciscans in Medjugorje professed their solemn vows

As you surrender your lives in the vows of obedience, poverty and chastity before the Cross of the Lord, may you continue to live under His shadow. Gaze often at the Cross and share your stories of life at the foot of the Cross, say to the Cross all those burdens and pains, but also be able to place your joy there too and may you continue to walk in the newness until the rest of your lives.” (PHOTO)

Fr. Ike Mandurić at Cross Mountain: The Cross is our identity

15.09.2019

Let us promise to the Lord that we will not ask of Him to take us down from the cross, do not take us down, but keep us there just as you did up to now. Enrich us there as you did in the past. Protect our souls! Protect our hope and our faith! Do not take us down from the cross, Lord, but let us recognise you there so we would be people who love, who are noble and who burn for our values, but also those who pray and come to Our Lady, said Fr. Ike Mandurić, adding that those who gaze at the cross, gaze at the future. (PHOTO)

16.09.2019

As we know, one branch of the New Evangelisation has pastoral responsibility for the shrines in the world. Even though Medjugorje has still not been officially recognised as the shrine, this place is the destination for millions of pilgrims each year. Since we too have the responsibility for pilgrimages, I received this invitation with great gratitude, as it has brought me here.

Sooner or later that will take place here as well, but in this case we let Mother of God with freedom of choice...I think that Medjugorje can continue well on their journey, with full trust that Church, Mother and Teacher, in this case, is going to continue to monitor their journey.
