What Are You Praying for Today?

October 31, 2016 A.D.

Sign-up for mejList, the FREE Medjugorje Newsletter

October 31, 2016 A.D.

Our Lady of Medjugorje recently said:

Friday, October 21, 2016:

“…Pray dear children for peace—for peace. May peace come to reign in people’s hearts, because from a peaceful heart, a peaceful world is born…”

Four days later on October 25, 2016:

“…Today I am calling you: pray for peace…”

Four days later, on Friday, October 28, 2016:

“…Especially, dear children, through this time, I am calling you: pray for peace. May there be peace, dear children…”

 

Caritas Community Children Praying the Patriotic Rosary

This past Memorial day, the Caritas Community gathered in the community cemetary praying the Patriotic Rosary. The Community children joined in their own way, the Patriotic Rosary. These days many have been praying the Patriotic Rosary, either alone, in their family or in their prayer groups. This is an important prayer, especially for Our Lady’s intentions for peace that She has asked us to pray for in this time.

 

On Saturday, October 29, we received the following letter:


“I have been reading the information on the Patriotic Rosary and the messages of all those who are participating. Since I am an American but living in Norway it is very moving and exciting to me to read how many are praying and fasting for America!”

Becky
Rygge, Norway

And just a day before, we received this following letter:


“…I prayed the Rosary on the day you prayed in Philadelphia. I went into an empty Church and prayed, as I never have before for the future of the USA. May God bless you all. Thank you…”

I.R.
Glasgow, Scotland

As we call to mind today and in these next days, the souls of those who have died and pray for them, that their souls rest in peace, let us not forget the Soul that is on the threshold of dying, and that through our prayers can revive to a new life. The holy and prophetic words that a Friend of Medjugorje etched in the foundation of the great Cross on Penitentiary Mountain1 at Caritas:

For the Soul of America

We do not have to say R.I.P. America yet, like a Friend of Medjugorje said about Ireland.2 We still have time. Remember this week to pray for the Soul of America, and in a special way for the intentions of peace that Our Lady has for America, and the whole world. Tonight, the Caritas Community will be praying in the community cemetary3 for all of our loved ones who have died and we will be remembering also the soul of America.

Operated by the Community of Caritas

Notes:

1. For the Soul of America, these prophetic words by a Friend of Medjugorje were etched into the foundation of the Cross on Penitentiary Mountain at Caritas. For more information about this read the Medjugorje Headline, For the Soul of America

2. A Letter to Ireland, the May 22, 2015 writing from a Friend of Medjugorje, in which the words “R.I.P. Ireland” were written, became the single-most defining letter about the marriage referendum in Ireland. We have witnessed since that time, a division of those who stand for God and His Law, and those who tolerate sinful behavior, yet call themselves Christians. As if an earthquake is breaking the ground between them, the gap between these two groups are widening, and we are seeing the first rumblings of this quake happening in America today.

Deacon John,

It’s Monday morning … and time for good news at the start of the final week of this 40 Days for Life campaign!

Since this all started on September 28, our local leaders around the world are reporting …

527 mothers who’ve chosen life for their babies — that we know of!

Prayers are being answered … at the last possible moment.

To God be all the glory!

image

There are only two remaining abortion facilities left in Austin, Texas. One is the Planned Parenthood center where local 40 Days for Life leader Heather Gardner gathered more than 125 people outside for our Austin rally.

image

Dr. Haywood Robinson, who serves on the 40 Days for Life board, spoke to the crowd. He talked about redemption — he once performed abortions, but now offers women life-affirming care at a new medical center housed in the former Planned Parenthood building in College Station, Texas.

One highlight of this rally was meeting a couple who got involved in Austin’s 40 Days for Life campaign to honor their daughter, who lost her life last year. They said she inspired them to follow her example and pray for an end to abortion.

image

In San Antonio, they remember the Alamo … and they also remember the unborn!

Thanks to God’s answer to your prayers, more than 12,000 babies have been saved from abortion during 40 Days for Life campaigns … and it sure helps that our local leaders can depend on life-affirming pregnancy resource centers to show mothers they have real options.

image

Peggy Hartshorn of Heartbeat International told the crowd that you always know when a 40 Days for Life vigil is going on … because there’s an increase in the number of mothers who visit pregnancy care centers. Your presence is really making a difference!

image

Houston is home to the largest abortion facility in the western hemisphere — the 78,000 square-foot Planned Parenthood building.

A great crowd came out for a candlelight vigil and was moved by the testimony of a post-abortive woman who shared about how she and her husband went through an abortion — 42 years ago. They later had three other children. The oldest was at the UNITED rally — the priest who offered the opening prayer!

Up next — Louisiana!

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

–John 1:1-3

O God, may we always be quick to call you Father. And when we call you father, let your Spirit remind us that we, and all people, from their beginning to their last day, are your children. We praise you, Father, that you sent your Son to reveal to the world that all people are His brothers and sisters, that all people are your children.

Ivan's apparition, 06/17/13

Dear Family of Mary!


On October 28, 2016 Ivan Dragicevic met with his prayer group on Apparition Hill. Here is the translation of his comments after the apparition that night.  


Message through Ivan, October 28, 2016
 
After the meeting with Our Lady, I would like to draw closer to you and  describe to you tonight’s meeting.  Also today she came to us joyful and happy.  At the beginning she greeted all of us with the motherly greeting
“Praised be Jesus, my dear children.”  
 
Then Our Lady especially prayed here over all of you present who are sick.  Then with her arms extended she prayed over all of us.  
 
Afterward Our Lady said,
 
 “Dear children, also today in a special way I desire to call you to open your hearts to my messages that I am giving you.  And I call you to pray for peace.  Peace dear children.  May it be. The mother prays for all of you. And intercedes for all of you before her Son.  Thank you dear children, also today for having responded to my call.”  
 
Afterwards Our Lady blessed all of us with her motherly blessing, and she blessed all of your religious articles that you brought to be blessed.  I recommended all of you, your needs and your intentions. your families, and in a special way the sick.  
 
Then Our Lady continued to pray and in that prayer she left in an illuminated sign of the cross, saying
“Go in peace, my dear children.”

 

 
This is an approximate translation.


 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Deacon John,

Each 40 Days for Life campaign has its own local flavor — and weather.

We’ve seen all kinds of weather already during this 40 Days for Life campaign … and it’s not even November yet. This brings challenges that often require sacrifice.

It’s good to know, then, that at every hour of every day for 40 days … someone, somewhere around the world is at a location where abortions take place — praying for abortion to end.

And regardless of the weather … at the heart of things, there’s not much difference from one campaign to another.

One of our Texas volunteers pointed this out in a note on Facebook — in a response to the UNITED rally in Anchorage, Alaska, where it was 24 degrees and there was snow on the ground.

“My grandkids are in Anchorage and we are in Texas,” she wrote, “doing the same campaign — but at 95 degrees.”

Please keep that in mind. Even if you happen to be standing by yourself praying outside the abortion center, you’re never alone!

image

Everything is bigger in Texas!

Fort Worth leader Bobby Warren managed to pull a crowd equal in size to the biggest vigil stop thus far on the 40 Days for Life UNITED tour!

image

Telemundo, the Spanish TV network, sent a reporter to the stop … and this news team captured the large crowd, the bus signing and vigil. Bobby Warren speaks excellent Spanish and offered an interview to the station.

image

It was an excellent line-up of speakers for the rally in Dallas! Georgette Forney of Silent No More Awareness talked about her abortion … and speaking of her child, she said, “I still miss that gift.”

Her testimony was so moving it prompted a gentleman at the event to share his regret of lost fatherhood — he aborted what would be, unknown to him, his only child. “I promise you know a man who has abortion in his past and he’s hurting even if he says otherwise. I used to be that man.”

40 Days for Life board member Haywood Robinson, a doctor who once performed abortions prior to his conversion, encouraged participants to keep the faith and finish the race … reminding everyone that God is our life and strength.

Now … it’s on to Austin, San Antonio and Houston!

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor.

— Psalm 8:3-9

Lord, you are the creator of all things. Guide my thoughts to consider your creation in all of its majesty, beauty and holiness. Guide my heart especially to your creation of precious human life. Help me to comprehend how essential life is in your own heart. Teach me to appreciate, love and protect all human life.

Deacon John,

You won’t be surprised to hear that the media is not typically pro-life.

However, 40 days for Life campaigns are getting excellent media coverage at the local level.

The media generally thinks the vigils are there to intimidate or harass, but when they go out to the street, they see the truth — in the form of peaceful, prayerful volunteers.

The joy of our volunteers and leaders stands in stark contrast to Planned Parenthood employees, who won’t usually appear on camera, choosing instead to offer cold prepared statements.

The UNITED bus tour has been the focus of increasing — and increasingly positive — local media coverage. And Christian media has been welcoming, as always … in reports such as an excellent feature article that appeared in the National Catholic Register.

image

We kicked off another day on the road with an encouraging vigil stop in Flagstaff, Arizona.

image

The volunteers in Flagstaff are working and praying to close down the local Planned Parenthood center. They also have the opportunity to minister to passers-by and the homeless at their location, which we were able to witness during the stop.

image

The 40 Days for Life campaign in Rio Rancho, New Mexico is held outside a Planned Parenthood center that doesn’t perform surgical abortions.

But at this UNITED vigil stop, the local campaign leader reminded attendees that every Planned Parenthood center promotes, sells, recommends and refers for abortions … and needs prayers outside its doors.

image

Our day finished with a wonderful New Mexico state rally at dusk in Albuquerque — the first UNITED event to be broadcast live on the radio!

Albuquerque has the unfortunate reputation of being the late-term abortion capital of America, but the dedication, prayers and tireless efforts of faithful people here are saving lives — including two babies saved from abortion here since the start of this campaign!

image

Attendees traveled from across the state, including a group that drove three hours from Las Cruces.

The bus and advance team are now on the longest drive of the entire tour, heading to events in Texas. Please pray for safe travels!

The dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour it. She gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne.

— Revelation 12:4-5 3

O God, from generation to generation, you have called your people to be the very aroma of life amidst a culture of death. Now it is our turn. Prepare me. Send me. Use me. I am eager to do my part. Stir your people everywhere to take up this great work.

Judie Brown
Judie Brown
October 28, 2016

As the election draws nearer, we need the sage advice of people who understand and teach God’s laws, not man’s.

Election day is upon us once again, and the same old trite comments arise.

  • Dear Judie, Can we vote for a candidate who favors abortion if he is better than his opponent on other “issues”?

  • Dear Judie, The Catholic Church is wrong on abortion; it’s a religious issue, not a matter to be decided by politicians or judges.

  • Dear Judie, I am Catholic and pro-choice. That’s how I plan to vote.

What all of these statements have in common is a flawed understanding of fundamental Catholic teaching, not to mention logic. First and foremost, each of these Catholic voters is in a state of confusion, or as Cardinal Raymond Burke pointed out, they are the victims of scandal. In other words, the mixed messages of pro-abortion Catholic politicians and the manner in which they are dealt with by the hierarchy leave people with a false idea of what is and is not expected by Christ and His Church of Catholics in the voting booth.
