Message, 25. January 2023

“Dear children! Pray with me for peace, because Satan wants war and hatred in hearts and peoples. Therefore, pray and sacrifice your days by fasting and penance, that God may give you peace. The future is at a crossroads, because modern man does not want God. That is why mankind is heading to perdition. You, little children, are my hope. Pray with me, that what I began in Fatima and here may be realised. Be prayer and witness peace in your surroundings, and be people of peace. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Archbishop Cavalli celebrated Mass for Benedict XVI: He understood his mission and fulfilled it

05.01.2023

''Jesus met him and said to him: 'Follow me.'  Pope Benedict understood well the mission that the Lord gave him in the role of pastor and theologian, until his election as Pope. Pope Benedict accomplished the mission entrusted to him, faithfully using the talents he received. Pope Benedict personally experienced an encounter with Jesus, and he went from Him to understand and reach God.''

Mother of God – the best pastoral theologian 

Max Domej from Gebetsktion Wien spoke to Cardinal Christoph Schonborn, Archbishop of Vienna, during his visit to Međugorje.
Both in Lourdes and Fatima the events first ceased and than Church had its decision about that. Its final decision. 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.
