Message, 25. November 2016

“Dear children! Also today, I am calling you to return to prayer. In this time of grace, God has permitted me to lead you towards holiness and a simple life – that in little things you discover God the Creator; that you fall in love with Him; and that your life be a thanksgiving to the Most High for everything He is giving you. Little children, in love, may your life be a gift for others and God will bless you; but you, witness without interest - out of love for God. I am with you and  intercede before my Son for all of you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

The encounters of parishioners of Medjugorje began this Advent

On Sunday, November 27, the first encounter this Advent was held on the grounds of the old parish church in Medjugorje. As in the previous year, the hosts of this first gathering were parishioners from Miletina hamlet. Medjugorje parish priest, Fr. Marinko Sakota, lit the first candle of the Advent Wreath.

The whole atmosphere was more special thanks to the singing of the parish choir “The Queen of Peace”, Croatian musician and artist Tedi Spalato, Croatian artistic group Dream team Babe, Croatian Cultural Art Association Mokro and a capella vocal group Dobrkovići from Široki Brijegi, Mandoline orchestra Misericordia from Šurmanci and sisters Ramljak. photos)

We were informed that some people are selling mass intentions from Medjugorje parish office on their web sites. This is huge misuse of the most sacred offering of Holy Mass and major fraud at the same time. Thereby, we would kindly like to ask you to be aware of this matter and not to support it by any means. If you happen to find out about similar activities of some other people involved in this, we would appreciate if you could notify us promptly about that.

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.
