Dear Family of Mary!
“These things I have spoken to you, while I am still with you. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” (John 14:25-26)
Our Lady has pointed her children toward the Holy Spirit, consistently throughout her coming to Medjugorje. Like Jesus said, there is too much to say about God and His plans for us. Our Lady can only hint at what the Father wants to accomplish in each of us. It is the Holy Spirit who actually can come to us with distinct and unique directives for each one of us. He comes as the Counselor to teach us what do to and how to do it!! He is God, He can manage all the details and all the timing perfectly. All He needs is our cooperation. He needs the ears of our hearts open and attuned to His voice. Then he can guide us in this vast plan of salvation the Father is enacting in this time, today!
In the next days I will share some of Our Lady’s messages concerning the Holy Spirit. As we approach Pentecost Sunday (less than three weeks now) we can let her messages open our hearts to the Holy Spirit. May we be ready for the outpouring of God, the Holy Spirit, upon us!!
Here are some simple messages to begin with:
Friday, October 21, 1983
“The important thing is to pray to the Holy Spirit, so that He may descend on you. When one has Him, one has everything. People make a mistake when they turn only to the saints to request something.”
“Begin by calling on the Holy Spirit each day. The most important thing is to pray to the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit descends on earth, then everything becomes clear and everything is transformed.”
Monday, January 2, 1984
“Why have you stopped saying the prayer to the Holy Spirit. I have asked you to pray always and at all times so that the Holy Spirit may descend over all of you. Begin again to pray for that.”
The visionaries had stopped saying the prayer to the Holy Spirit thinking that it was said only until Christmas.
June 9, 1984 (Saturday) “Dear children! Tomorrow night pray for the Spirit of Truth! Especially, you from the parish because you need the Spirit of Truth to be able to convey the messages just the way they are, neither adding anything to them, nor taking anything whatsoever away from them, but just the way I said them. Pray for the Holy Spirit to inspire you with the spirit of prayer, so you will pray more. I, your Mother, tell you that you are praying little. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
November 8, 1984 “Dear children! You are not conscious of the messages which God is sending you through me. He is giving you great graces and you do not comprehend them. Pray to the Holy Spirit for enlightenment. If you only knew how great are the graces God is granting you, you would be praying without ceasing. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

“Medjugorje is the spiritual center of the world.”
Saint John Paul II
Medjugorje, May 18, 2019
Dear children of Medjugorje, praise be to Jesus and Mary!
1. On May 2nd, 2019, Mirjana received her monthly apparition at the Blue Cross, surrounded by a large crowd of pilgrims. After the apparition, she conveyed this message:
“Dear children, with a motherly love I am calling you to respond to the great love of my Son, with pure and open hearts, with complete trust. I know the greatness of His love. I carried Him within me, the Host in the heart, the light and the love of the world. My children, also my addressing you is a sign of the love and tenderness of the Heavenly Father-a big smile filled with the love of my Son, a call to eternal life. Out of love, the Blood of my Son was shed for you. That Precious Blood is for your salvation, for eternal life. The Heavenly Father created man for eternal happiness. It is not possible-for you who know the love of my Son and who follow Him-to die. Life triumphed; my Son is alive. Therefore, my children, apostles of my love, may prayer show you the way and the means of spreading the love of my Son-prayer in the most exalted form. My children, also when you strive to live the words of my Son, you are praying. When you love the people whom you meet, you are spreading the love of my Son. It is love that opens the doors of Paradise. My children, from the beginning, I prayed for the Church. Therefore, I am also calling you, apostles of my love, to pray for the Church and her servants-for those whom my Son called. Thank you.” Now, as is the case for all websites associated with Medjugorje, we will no longer be able to publish the link to Mirjana’s apparition, because this has been requested by the authorities. We will however provide a simple photo of Mirjana. Obedience is always blessed!
2. A Nuclear power plant? In this time of grace and mercy coupled with very difficult struggles, the Blessed Mother has given us a very important message, which may go unnoticed. It concerns the formation of prayer groups, which will more and more constitute the backbone of the Church of tomorrow.
“Dear children, renew prayer in your families and form prayer groups. In this way, you will experience joy in prayer and communion. All those who pray and are members of prayer groups are open to God’s will in their hearts and joyfully witness God’s love.” (Sept 25, 2000)
“Prayer groups are powerful, and through them I can see that the Holy Spirit is at work in the world.” (June 25, 2004)
More than ever, these small prayer groups that are cropping up here and there as fruits of Medjugorje (and from other good works of the Church) are important, provided of course that they unite hearts. Our lady strongly emphasizes unity among the members of a group, for then, she says, such a group “is more powerful than a nuclear power plant.” (Message to the prayer group) If these groups are humble and fervent, they form a vital organ for the body of the Church. Invisible to the enemy, because of their humility, they draw down great blessings on the world. From the earliest years of the apparitions,
Our Lady has been willing to create her own prayer group in Medjugorje, whom she led for 7 years. An exceptional event in the History of the Church! She also asked that a chapel of perpetual adoration be opened in each parish. According to some shocking statistics, the Catholic Church is the most persecuted religious organization in the world today, This is why we have to seize the right weapons, those given by Our Lady for the past 38 years, and start defeating the enemy! Speaking of France, my homeland, every single day, churches are robbed, hosts are stolen, crosses are broken, statues are knocked over and insulting graffiti is sprayed on the walls…
See: https://www.dreuz.info/2019/04/16/france-875-eglises-ont-ete-vandalisees-lannee-derniere/ In a single year, 26 churches were burned. See: https://sputniknews.com/europe/201904071073895920-churches-vandalism-thefts-heritage/ Just a few examples: On Aug. 6, 2018, the church of Villeneuve d’Amont, was totally destroyed by a fire.
On Jan. 17, 2019, a church in Grenoble burned down completely.
How has it come to this where our churches -sometimes several centuries old – have ended up in flames one after the other? The time has come for us to strive to build our cathedrals in our own hearts, to make our hearts “tabernacles of the Living God” where no enemy can penetrate and where only the fire of the Spirit can take hold, and burn out of love! May these “little homes of fervor”, as Venerable Martha Robin called them, grow in number and in quality all over the world to ward off the assaults of the enemy, and together with Mary, prepare the second coming of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ!
3. Jean Vanier, friend of the blessed ones, left us on May 7. When I was young (a long time ago!), I visited l’Arche (the Ark) a few times, in the small village of Trosly where Jean Vanier lived. I was so amazed and joyful to see all these mentally handicapped men and women living a peaceful and simple family life so well designed for them, with the help of some volunteers! Jean’s heart was as big as he was tall in size! The way he welcomed the poor reminded us of the Beatitudes, he became a friend of those whom Jesus named in the Gospel: “Blessed are the poor because the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.” Jean felt honored to be able to welcome and serve these blessed ones, and the way he saw them is reminiscent of Mother Teresa of Calcutta. He was known all over the world.
Here are some tips he liked to give: “Accept the reality of your body”. “Don’t be afraid of failing”. “In a relationship, take the time to ask, “How are you?”” “Stop looking at your phone, be present!” “Ask people “What’s your story?” “Be aware of your own story.” “Stop the prejudices: meet the people”. “Listen to your deep desire and follow it.” “Remember that you are going to die one day…”
Farewell, dear Jean! Pray for us from up there and intercede for the children and young people who have been wounded by the breakups in their families. Continue to be an advocate for the weak and vulnerable! 4. Pope Francis has authorized pilgrimages to Medjugorje! The news has already spread around the world! Until now, only private pilgrimages were authorized by the Church, irrespective of the number of participants. Now that official pilgrimages are allowed, parishes and dioceses can arrange them in the same way as we do for other shrines such as Lourdes or Fatima. This does not however imply that the apparitions have been officially recognized, as Alessandro Gisotti, Director of the Holy See Press Office, said on May 12, 2019. These apparitions still need to be reviewed by the Church.Because these apparitions are still ongoing, this examination could take a long time. But the Holy Father’s green light for official pilgrimages is a priceless step forward for Medjugorje and for welcoming its specific grace! We warmly thank the Mother of God and Queen of Peace, because many of her children who dared not come, will now be able to do so without fear and receive the grace of peace for which their souls thirst! Given the impressive flow of pilgrims who visit Medjugorje each year (about 2.5 million), Archbishop Henryk Hoser, Apostolic visitor, announced that some of the Sanctuary’s development work could start soon in order to expand the space for liturgical celebrations and enable the construction of a more suitable Chapel. This is an excellent initiative and so truly necessary! 5. On YouTube, several talks given during my missions are available, in English, French, Italian, German and Polish. (See PS 4)
6. My next Live Broadcast on the message of the 2nd will be on June 3rd at 9 pm. The May 3rd broadcast can be seen at http://www.enfantsdemedjugorje.fr/medjugorje-direct-du-3-mai-2019/
Dearest Gospa, in light of Rome’s authorization for official pilgrimages to Medjugorje, you will be even more instrumental in the lives of your children. You are also showing us that your plan is enfolding. Yes, your plan will be realized in its fullness one day, and more than ever we want to actively take part in it! Sister Emmanuel, Community of the Beatitudes (Translated from French)
PS1. On May 17, Our Lady appeared to Ivan at the Blue Cross, and gave the following message: “Dear children, also today I call you in a special way to pray for my intentions, for my plans that I desire to realize here by my coming.

Our Lady usually comes at about 10:00 pm to Ivan and the prayer group.
Dear Family of Mary!
Here is what Ivan shared with the pilgrims:
Today, like every day with a meeting with Our Lady, I would like to also bring closer to you, to describe that which is the most important from tonight’s meeting. Also, today, Our Lady came to us, very joyful and happy, and greeted all of us with her motherly greeting, “Praised by Jesus, my dear children!”
Then with extended arms she prayed over all of us here, and especially prayed here over all of you here who are sick. Then she said,
“Dear children, Also today I call you in a special way to pray for my intentions, for my plans that I desire to realize here by my coming. Pray in a special way for my shepherds, for firm faith, firm faith in my priests. Thank you, dear children, also today, for having responded to my call.”
Afterwards Our Lady blessed with her Motherly blessing everything that you have brought to be blessed. Then Our Lady, in a special way, prayed for peace in the families. And then in prayer, she left in an illuminated Sign of the Cross, with the words, “Go in peace, my dear children.”
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
“Medjugorje is the spiritual center of the world.”

Couple Aborted Their Baby Because Scan Indicated a Disability, Post-Abortion Test Showed Baby Was Healthy
The Babies in the ‘Breyer Patch’
By Judie Brown
United States Supreme Court justice Stephen Breyer has been making noise about Supreme Court precedent and abortion—and the media is listening. That is because the liberal media is convinced that Roe v. Wadewill be overturned. In their self-imposed hysteria, some in the media recently pointed to Justice Breyer’s dissenting opinion regarding the court overruling precedent.
Breyer dissented to a majority opinion involving Franchise Tax Board of California vs. Gilbert P. Hyatt. The majority decision written by Justice Clarence Thomas overturned a 40-year-old precedent to now “hold that states retain their sovereign immunity from private suits brought in the courts of other states.” This decision allegedly set the stage for the possibility that the Supreme Court could overturn precedent in other cases, such as those established by the abortion decisions of 1973 and the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey decision.
It is “dangerous,” Breyer concluded, “to overrule a decision only because five members” of the court disagree with it. “Today’s decision can only cause one to wonder which cases the Court will overrule next.” And if there were any doubt which cases Breyer was alluding to in this dark denouement, he cited the portion of Planned Parenthood v. Casey that explained why Roe should be upheld. The justice has hoisted a red flag, alerting the country that the court’s conservative majority is preparing an assault on the right to abortion access.
This writer is not alone in his fear that something dreadful might happen to curtail the killing of preborn babies. Well-known reporter Linda Greenhouse explained that the 1992 Casey decision found that in narrow cases the state does have a compelling interest to regulate abortion, but she noted that even with those restrictions “nothing like what we’re seeing now” could have been foreseen at that time 25 years ago.
In fact, it was the Supreme Court’s Casey decision that discovered the “undue burden” argument, which fundamentally protects women who want abortion, if the regulation of such an abortion imposes an undue burden on her.
So, what is all the ridiculous wailing and flailing really about? Well, the following examples sure make us wonder!
“the Kansas Constitution protects a woman’s right to an abortion. . . . The landmark ruling now stands as the law of the land in Kansas with no path for an appeal. Because it turns on the state’s Constitution, abortion would remain legal in Kansas even if the Roe v. Wade case that established a national right to abortion is ever reversed by the U.S. Supreme Court.”
Example number two: Alabama
“would make an abortion and attempted abortion a felony. Exceptions would be allowed if the mother’s life is at risk.”
Governor Kay Ivey has now signed this bill, and we can bet that it is sure to face a court challenge and undoubtedly will not go into effect.
Example number three: In Oklahoma,
“the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that a state law restricting access to drug-induced abortions is unconstitutional, the latest decision by the state’s highest court striking down restrictions on abortions adopted by the Republican-controlled Legislature.”
Given these three examples, the possibility that a Supreme Court action would offer total protection of innocent preborn babies is nigh on impossible—at least for now. This is why we struggle every day to defend the innocent and to educate our fellow citizens, our children, and our lawmakers.
We know that preborn children must not be caught in the thorny web of the Breyer Patch.
These babies are members of our human family. Each human being from his beginning is created in the image and likeness of God, Who has ruled that abortion is a crime. Thou shalt not kill is not an idea; it is a law!
It is incumbent upon each of us to fight for the babies—in the IVF lab, inside his mother, and after birth. This is the way to kill the deadly thorny weeds of abortion-mindedness and propaganda, not only in the Breyer Patch but throughout the culture of death.
