Will You Be an Apostle?
This writing is in regards to Our Lady's acceptance of us, and our acceptance of Her. A Friend of Medjugorje tells more below.
Our Lady said on June 2, 2014:
Mirjana said that Our Lady blessed all of those present and their religious articles. Mirjana also said that Our Lady was determined or decisive.
Our Lady’s message today is extensive. This writing will focus primarily on Our Lady’s first two sentences in regards to Her acceptance of us and our acceptance of Her. There is a time coming, as Our Lady’s children, that those who have loved, who have forgiven and whose works have become prayer, will then achieve being an apostle. They will do miracles, miracles just as the first apostles of the early Church, as She said today:

A small number in the infancy of the Church who converted sinners, healed the sick, cast out demons, whom Jesus had gathered to His Heart, within 300 years, took over the Roman Empire! This remarkable feat is to be duplicated today. In regards to Our Lady, so few have understood this plan and so few have truly united to be completely one in Her heart, despite the fact that She calls all. Our Lady said on May 25, 2014:
Many who went to Medjugorje converted and became impassioned in their faith, but now have fallen away or have grown only to a limited level. They do not enter into the deeper levels of conversion because of the price they would have to pay, in regard to changing their lives to set out in a different direction:
That area of discomfort in which you must work hard on your conversion, where you come to a point of conviction that causes problems for you, has caused many to cool off. There are many who are weak in their conversion and do not accept Our Lady, except with limitation, as to Her call. These will not become apostles, though they will say they know Her. Those obstacles you resign yourself to being blocked by, that you do not attempt to scale over, were not obstacles that stopped the early apostles. They conducted their lives in such a way that no obstacle stopped them and they led others the same.
Recently, a woman, who in the past went on pilgrimage with us, called to again sign up to go to Medjugorje. The next day, she wrote back saying she could not go because her spiritual director, a priest, said Medjugorje is still being investigated and told her she could not go with our group because public pilgrimages are forbidden. She called to say she would, therefore, not be going. Will she become an apostle of Our Lady? No. Why? How can she be counted among the number?

She does not have the wisdom to understand that Our Lady is here to spiritually guide us into Apostleship. Nor does she have the wisdom to understand that when a shepherd does not have understanding in his guidance, or he gives faulty direction through ignorance, he is leading one away from a source of grace that will lead to deep communion with God and Our Lady. He has not been accurately informed that the faithful are free to go to Medjugorje with organized groups privately. One should get away from such direction. Spiritual direction is a direction you spiritually walk. If one is directing you away from Our Lady, then you need to walk away from that one’s direction. Yes, it is uncomfortable. Yes, it will take conviction. Our Lady knows this. It is why Our Lady has said:

Our Lady knows there is a lack of sound spiritual direction in the church today. God, Himself, ordained to send His own Mother to guide man back to Him at a time when the church is incapable of doing so. God is intervening into the world because the church has ceased to convict the world. The church membership has allowed the world to taint and influence them, leading the church to become too familiar with the world’s ways. The church is very sick. It is in great need of direction for the formation of everyday life towards holiness. It does not know how to guide man, or how to teach not to divorce, how to live without modernism infecting it, how to build true infrastructure for the sacrament of community. It does not even know what community is anymore. These are among just a few problems in the church. Man has lost his way because the church has lost its way. It does not recognize Our Lady, who She is, why She is coming. Those who may object saying the church has not lost its way because Jesus said that the gates of hell would not prevail against it, fail to see that God is doing exactly what He promised for the church, through Our Lady’s apparitions at Medjugorje, so that the gates of hell will not prevail.
Over a year ago we received a call from a family member of a young man who was headed to hell by the life he was leading. This family member wanted to send the young man to Medjugorje. Reluctantly the young man decided to go, but then a priest, a respected friend of the young man, gave him direction not to go. Thus, an ensuing battle took place between our and the family’s direction vs. the priest telling him not to go. Very bad direction. The young man decided not to go. We kept fighting for him to go, right up to the morning the flight was to leave for Medjugorje. His salvation at peril, he was all but dragged to the plane; all the while the priest gave the opposite direction. We were bold because we understand Our Lady’s call, Her words. We knew this young man’s condition was bad. We understand Her gospel in the context of the historic and final times of the church, of Her call to prepare us for the coming back of Her Son.
In Medjugorje, the young man, who was told not to go, heard and recognized Our Lady’s call. He experienced conversion. He came home praying the Rosary. He experienced a process of conversion. He kept his Rosary close. Not long afterwards, he was killed in a car wreck. We have a crisis in the church, a crisis which numbs, and many of those who could do something, do not, and often get in the way of one’s opportunity for salvation. It is Our Lady who says:

An American bishop recently allowed 19 seminarians from his diocese to go to Medjugorje after a benefactor came forward to offer to pay their way. They went with their bishops’ blessing. But Medjugorje is “not approved!” We have duplicity in the church when this good bishop who has recognized Our Lady’s voice, sent his seminarians to Medjugorje and blessed them while others are interpreting “not approved” statement as a condemnation and no one can go to Medjugorje, cannot go to conferences, cannot attend apparitions. This is false. This is wrong. This is a lie against the Holy Spirit. We know of many priests who are "underground" Medjugorje followers, who received their calling to the priesthood through Medjugorje, but who must remain silent because of the resistance they recieve. But only the apostles of the latter days, as St. Louis de Montfort described them, will recognize the time of Mary and Her words. They did not recognize Jesus as the Christ or as the Word, and today it is the same, as the following describes:
The Gospel of Mary
Our Lady’s apparitions are to prepare the world for a time of peace and victory, but these same messages will be used by those in the ultimate battle in which, through the Gospel of Mary, She, the Woman, shadowed not even by the greatest angel or saint, and in the light of Her Son, will crush the serpent’s head, and Who at His glorious return, will cast the serpent into the eternal flame forever.
He who chokes at the words “Gospel of Mary” does not know Her. Jesus said you do not know Me because you do not know My Father. If you knew Him, you would know Me. Because you do not know Me, you do not know He who sent Me. If you do not accept Mary’s words, you do not accept Her Son’s Words. If you knew Her Son was the Word, you would recognize Her words and Her Son Who sent Her. “His” Mother said that She would give messages as it has never been in history from the beginning of the world. In the beginning was the Word and the Word became flesh.
For you who do not accept Her words, how then do you accept the Word? Mary’s Gospel, the echo of the Word, given in a new way, a new understanding, are immense in that their effects will affect all creation until the final battle in which the serpent’s head will be crushed, never to rise again. Whether the final battle be ten years or one thousand years from now, we are being given a gift, a grace, incomprehensible in this moment, that will give passage to many future Christians to survive amidst the great tribulation, the suffering under the anti-church, until Jesus, in the glorious moment, comes back.
As men confined in mortal bodies, limited in so much humanness, we are not able to see Mary as God sees Her. We can pray to comprehend, to rise above the confines of the flesh in better knowing Mary, but we will never know and understand Mary as She is known by God. She, who is in the midst of the Trinity, comes on the second day of the newborn millennium and says:
January 2, 2000
Shudder, O man, that She Who alone can dwell deep in the midst of the Trinity where no being can dare go, not even the angels, and now She is before you begging! How man, have you responded to Her words? -- End of “Gospel of Mary”
Because of the lack of understanding on how to deal with sin in the church, there is a lack of understanding of how to deal with sin in society. Recently, in California, a law was passed requiring two people to sign a consent form before they can go out together on a date. Yes, a boy and a girl going out to get a milkshake must sign a consent form to date. Man must begin making behavior rules and laws by the thousands as a result of removing God and His ways from a society. The Church has failed in using its power of conviction to keep God in the public square by the lack of or poor witness of its church leadership and members. When we allow God to be removed from our schools because of our poor witness in living the principles of Christ, what is left but for satan to come in and shoot the place up. School shootings are less about the shooter, than the fact that God is no longer welcomed in schools.
If Christians were strong, those controlling the public square would be shamed and convicted in their efforts to remove God. Christians living in truth and in the fullness of their faith receive respect and adulation, and they hold accountable even the un-churched. Today, there is no respect for the church. Obama tramples right over it and only words come from the voices in the church. Little or no call to act. Why should we even wonder why our schools are under such attack? How can there be respect for the Church when a large portion of it is banning Our Lady of Medjugorje? Medjugorje is the answer that God sent to the world to save it and it is rejected outright, or more subtlety under the guise of “let’s be cautious,” meanwhile, not only are many people going to hel,l but all of society. Our Lady says today very plainly:
June 2, 2014
Medjugorje visionary, Mirjana, said of Our Lady today, June 2, 2014, that She appeared determined and decisive. And yet, we allow consideration of spiritual directions from those that conflict with Our Lady’s way as having legitimacy? It is Our Lady’s decisiveness and determination vs. the waffling on Medjugorje whereas “not approved” can mean “you cannot go” to some people while to others it means “you can go.”
It is clear, perfectly clear, that Our Lady will not contradict the church. She is the model of obedience, the shining star of this virtue, and She just appeared today, knowing thousands would attend Her apparition, would travel from around the world to get there, would spread Her message into every diocese of the world. If what is said today from the spiritual leaders within the church who are interpreting “not approved” as condemnation, then Our Lady would be telling us to be disobedient against the Church! She will not guide us to be disobedient; therefore, what She says is not disobedient. She knows that the church gives freedom to Her apparitions, unless they have been officially condemned, which they have not. The following statement is expressly clear in contradiction to what is being interpreted by those who state one cannot attend Medjugorje apparitions, gather for conferences, etc.:
On February 2, 1997, Mirjana gave an account of Our Lady’s visit with her and of Our Lady’s guidance, which follows:
"Please tell everyone that Our Lady’s apparition to me on the second of the month will now be like the regular apparitions to Vicka, Ivan, Jakov, and Marija. Our Lady said that whoever wants to be present at that apparition can come. Our Lady said that much prayer is needed for those who have not yet come to know the love of God. This is all."
Be “aware” and, therefore, “beware” for you who do eternal damage to souls when you dissuade, them and turn them away from the only answer upon the Earth today that can save it. Your not accepting Our Lady has a price which you will pay, though you will not have enough spiritual wealth to pay back the debt you tally up in not accepting God’s plans for the world’s redemption, His plans through Medjugorje.
March 18, 1996
This ‘evil’ needs people to collaborate with it and contribute to it, to reject Our Lady by interpreting Medjugorje’s not approved status as, therefore, you cannot go, cannot participate, go to conferences or apparitions, etc. In reality, Our Lady’s plans, if thwarted by evil, will achieve evil’s plans to destroy the world. It is Our Lady who says:
August 2, 2011
To use condemnation power where no condemnation exists is to be in aid of darkness’ plans to destroy the world.
But what if a shepherd tells one not to go to Medjugorje? Do not put these apparitions in the context of the church’s past, as when St. Faustina was asked by Jesus to do something, but then her spiritual director did not give her permission to do it. When Jesus next appeared to her, He told her she did the right thing by following the director. St. Faustina was bound by a spiritual director. She was, therefore, bound by a spiritual direction. She was, therefore, bound by obedience and did do the right thing by obeying the direction (spiritual direction) before obeying a vision of Jesus. Our Lady’s work, through Medjugorje, is rebirthing the Church and bringing about a new springtime for the Church. The Laity is not bound by obedience as in a religious congregation, unless they accept to be under a lay congregation or type of confraternity, and one that is not heretical. No matter what direction or message the laity may believe in, or think they’ve been given as in the past, they are only bound to obedience where a bishop or priest has jurisdiction. We must recognize this is the reason Our Lady is working outside the perimeters of the Church. Our Lady cannot save the world today from the spirit of modernism and consumerism that is within the Church. Our Lady, instead, is working Her plans outside of the Church, a Church that does not give Her the freedom She needs today to exercise Her authority that God has given Her in the world. By “rite” of baptism we have the “right” to evangelize our Christian faith even with devotions that which are “not yet approved,” unless the devotion is condemned. That holds true in answer to Our Lady’s call, a call none of which trespasses on the jurisdiction of a bishop or priest, except when they venture beyond their jurisdiction. To stop devotion, conferences, Medjugorje apparitions, or people attending them can be done only by condemning the apparitions which then would give jurisdiction to stop attendance and devotion, etc. The faithful would then be bound. But that has not happened and, therefore, no authority can be used in a way that exercises the powers that would be granted when condemnation has been given to do the above, as is now happening. There is no authority to do so except by an abuse of authority. There can be stipulations required where people attend the apparitions, conferences, etc., such as by announcing that “the Church has not formally approved” the Medjugorje apparitions and thereby people cannot take the credibility of the apparitions, conferences, devotion for granted. This stipulation is complied with by making the statement above when announcing an event. To be clear, all of these events can, therefore, take place. Nowhere can the faithful be stopped from going to Medjugorje, nor can the Medjugorje visionaries be stopped from having their apparitions around the world attended by the faithful, nor can conferences, etc., be stopped unless Medjugorje is condemned.
As we approach the 33rd anniversary of the apparitions, the escalation to stop Medjugorje should be a sign, knowing the Sanhedrin became more determined to stop Jesus the closer His moment came to the fulfillment of His plan. There were the crucifiers, and the crucified; those who worked against God’s plans and those who worked with God’s plans. Have no fear that the Church will ever condemn Medjugorje. It will not. It cannot. It is a plan for the salvation of the whole world. We do not speak for the Church. We speak for our consciences and for the light God has put in our hearts, that darkness is under judgment and will be crushed and that a new day is dawning. We are to be determined and decisive. It’s one way or the other. Decide. There is no middle ground. The Earth will soon go through death throes. Something new will be birthed. Our clause we abide by is not legalistic as by the letter of the law, but rather the clause we abide by is the spirit of the law. Be decisive, firmly resolved, know your rights through your “rite” of baptism and make love the center of your actions as without love you cannot achieve anything. As Our Lady said today,
June 2, 2014:
You are to be granted the grace to be made into an apostle. But, you can only be granted that if you forgive, and forgive even those who interpret that you cannot evangelize, be devoted to or attend Our Lady’s apparitions. But don’t let it stop you from being an apostle of Our Lady, the Queen of Peace of Medjugorje.
In the Name of Love, through Our Lady’s Way of the Truth,
Mirjana prepares herself in silence, minutes before the apparition this morning in Medjugorje, June 2, 2014. Each encounter with Our Lady comes with great anticipation. Anticipation which draws thousands to sit in the cold rain on the ground throughout the night. What does Mirjana’s witness teach us about the magnitude of this moment. Mirjana, who receives Our Lady on the second of each month, said in 1992:
“I know in advance when the Blessed Mother will be appearing and I prepare. My heart is so filled with longing that to just wait for her is my life.”
Mirjana describes Our Lady:
“I see Her in three dimensions, just as I see a normal person who is with me. She is a close to me and as intimate, more intimate, than even my own mother could ever be with me.”
Make a resolution to accept Our Lady every day into your life by being in prayer during the moment of Her daily descent when She comes among us to bless each of us, Her children.
