Our Lady of Medjugorje said on May 2, 2015:
by A Friend of Medjugorje
Our Lady is exposed, through Her Medjugorje apparitions, as never before in the history of the Church. Her Motherhood, Her feelings, Her emotions, Her pain, how She suffered in union with us as Her children, how new power has been given to Her from the Father, meaning that She has been given a new efficacy. Our Lady exposes another new revelation about what She will be able to do on the Earth even when the apparitions are over. She says: “…I will never leave you…” These are critical, crucial words in a world where motherhood is based in self-fulfillment, materialism and so many unnatural things. The children of the earth need to know the Mother will never leave them for Her own interests, and will never be distracted from her Motherhood. “…I will never leave you. I will always speak to you with motherly tenderness…”
Our Lady said something beautiful today: “…I laugh with you in your joy…” We have no Biblical record that Jesus ever laughed. In Italian mystic Maria Valtorta’s Poem of the Man-God, which is about the life of Jesus, Jesus said He never laughed with adults, only smiled. But He said when He was with children, He laughed. Could it not be that though a mother is suffering so much pain, that she could also laugh with children in their joy? It would be impossible, in watching the joys of children, that they not be the cause of laughter sometimes. If Our Lady cries because of our pain, why would it be that She would not laugh with us in our joyful moments?
In the Bedroom of Apparitions we have experienced Our Lady’s smile on many occasions. We have experienced repeatedly Our Lady being very joyful. Sometimes Marija has said Our Lady has come very, very happy. Our Lady has come and looked at us in the Bedroom. In one particular apparition, on February 11, 2009, Marija, describing Our Lady after She had just appeared said that Our Lady looked “amused” at our behavior. What had happened? Marija had just flown in from overseas for a wedding of two of our community members. It had been kept secret from the Community. When suddenly Marija was before everyone, it was a complete surprise. Everyone was in shock, especially upon finding out that Marija had not yet had her apparition for that day and that Our Lady was going to appear when we prayed, which we began to do just minutes later. The laughter, tears, joy and amazement continued to be reflected upon the faces of all the Community throughout our Rosary. When Our Lady appeared, She felt and displayed Her amusement at our spirit of joy, and perhaps because She had been in on the secret. (Visit here for the full story)
However, what Our Lady is here for is no laughing matter. Today, Our Lady is increasing the call, a remarkable call, unforeseen only just a few years ago. Yet, it is manifesting larger than could have been imagined or even detected in Her messages over the years. In the messages Our Lady has used the word “apostle” only four times in Her monthly 25th messages to Medjugorje Visionary Marija and only between the years of 1993-1998. Outside of those dates, Our Lady first mentions “apostles” to visionary Mirjana on her annual apparition of March 18, 2000. Then in 2005, Our Lady says it for the first time in a second of the month apparition on April 2, 2005, in a call to us to renew…first ourselves, then our families…and then we are to renew the Church. The year 2005 is significant because it is the first year that Mirjana began making her second of the month apparitions and messages public. From 2005 onward, Our Lady increasingly has mentioned “apostles” only in Her second of the months apparitions, with one exception, to visionary Ivanka on June 25, 2009. Over the past three years, Our Lady has mentioned the word “apostles” in almost every second of the month apparition, and often the word appears more than once in a single message. In 55 instances in which Our Lady said the word “apostles”, four were in the 25th message, two times were in Mirjana’s March 18 annual apparition, one time it was mentioned in Ivanka’s apparition. All other instances, 48 out of 55, were in Mirjana’s second of the month apparitions.
Today, Our Lady is sending you out as Her apostles. Jesus came to a point when He began to send the apostles out on field trips to evangelise to the people so that He could be their Savior. Our Lady today is beginning to push us out of the nest to test our wings and to mature our flying skills for the big moment of conversion that will accompany the admonitions. If we are not trained, tested, purified by trials and convert we will not be able to convert others and perform miracles. Our Lady said: My apostles, I need you to show everyone the truth of God. May 2, 2015 My apostles, I will be with you and will help you! April 2, 2005 Be my apostles. March 18, 2000 My apostles, help me to open the paths to my Son. October 2, 2010 Be apostles of the divine light in this time of darkness and hopelessness. March 2, 2012 Through that salvific love and the Holy Spirit He chose me and I, together with Him, am choosing you to be apostles of His love and will. June 2, 2012 I need apostles with a pure heart. October 2, 2012 Be ready! April 2, 2013 My apostles, great is the trust that the Heavenly Father has given you through me. August 2, 2013 I need humble apostles who, with an open heart, will accept the Word of God and help others to comprehend the meaning of their life. September 2, 2013 I am gathering you as my apostles and am teaching you how to bring others to come to know the love of my Son. October 2, 2013 Have a personal relationship with the Father which will deepen even more your relationship as a community of my children- of my apostles. November 2, 2013 You who strive to say your prayers with the heart; you who offer your pain and suffering to my Son; you who comprehend that life is only a blink; you who yearn for the Kingdom of Heaven. All of this makes you my apostles. November 2, 2013 Be apostles who will spread the love of the trust in the Heavenly Father and who will keep opening the gates of Heaven. July 2, 2013 I desire that, in your actions as my apostles, you be exact, resolute, and above all sincere. February 2, 2014 My apostles, pray and act. May 2, 2014 The Holy Spirit illuminates you and makes you my apostles – apostles who will do everything they do in the name of the Lord. They will pray with their works and not just with words. June 2, 2014 I have chosen you, my apostles, because all of you carry something beautiful within you. April 2, 2015 I am calling you, my apostles, to try to see something good in every creature of God, in all of my children, and to try to understand them. April 2, 2015 You, filled with love for my Son, can speak of what you know to all those who have not come to know that love. April 2, 2015 I am calling you, my apostles, to live the Eucharist with joy, because in the Eucharist my Son gives Himself to you anew and with His example shows the love and sacrifice towards the neighbor. April 2, 2015 My apostles, who with your love, humility and silence of prayer are making it possible for one to come to know my Son. March 2, 2015 Do not waste time thinking about whether you are worthy to be my apostles… comprehend that you are worthy to work for Heaven. February 2, 2015 I will make use of you, apostles. January 2, 2015
You have your direction as apostles.
What are today’s news headlines across the world? It is a deception. The real news, the biggest headline, is that today we received words directly from Heaven. You are to proclaim it as apostles with humility “…sensitive to the good and mercy…” The headline that should be across the news today, fresh from God’s throne:
In Our Lady’s Guidance to the Apostles,
