Our Lady of Guadalupe
The miraculous image on the Tilma of Juan Diego
Our Lady of Guadalupe
December 12, 2017 
Our Lady of Guadalupe
 
Dear Family of Mary!
 
“Am I not here who am your Mother?” (Our Lady of Guadalupe to Juan Diego)
 

“Dear children! Today I invite you to come still closer to me through prayer. Little children, I am your mother, I love you and I desire that each of you be saved and thus be with me in Heaven. That is why, little children, pray, pray, pray until your life becomes prayer. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (Our Lady of Medjugorje, August 25, 1998)


Today is the beautiful Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Especially for those of us in the Americas, this feast is central, for it was through Our Lady of Guadalupe that our hemisphere was won for Christ. What would have taken centuries for missionaries, took only a few years for Mary. She converted and saved millions of her children through her image on the Tilma of Juan Diego!

Here is a brief account of that miraculous event which changed the Americas forever:

Two days later, on December 12, as he was going to the Church at Tlatelolco in order to bring a priest to his dying uncle, Juan Diego was stopped by the Lady, who had come down from Tepeyac Hill to meet him in the road. She listened quietly to Juan’s excuse for not having kept his appointment with her the day before. When he had finished speaking she said, “It is well, littlest and dearest of my sons, but now listen to me. Do not let anything afflict you and be not afraid of illness or pain. Am I not here who am your Mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection? Are you not in the crossing of my arms? Is there anything else you need? Do not fear for your uncle for he is not going to die. Be assured… he is already well.”

Having heard these words, Juan Diego rejoiced and asked for the sign he was to take to the Bishop. He was told to climb to the top of the hill where she had spoken to him on three previous occasions. She said he would find many flowers blooming there which he was to cut and bring to her. Juan Diego did as he was told though he knew no flowers had ever bloomed before on the stony summit. He discovered a marvelous garden of dew-fresh blossoms which he cut as she had asked. Placing them in his rough cloak, or tilma, he brought the flowers to the Lady who rearranged them and told him to take them to the Bishop; that this was the sign to persuade him to carry out her wishes.

When Juan Diego, radiantly happy, stood before Bishop Fray Juan de Zumarraga and told him of the fourth encounter with the Lady, he opened his tilma to show the Bishop the sign; the flowers cascaded to the floor – but to the astonishment of the Bishop and Juan Diego, there appeared upon the coarse fabric of the Indian’s mantle a marvelously wrought, exquisitely colored portrait of the Blessed Virgin, just as Juan Diego had previously described her.  (from this article: http://queenoftheamericasguild.org/history-of-the-apparitions/  )
 
 
Coming on the heels of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, this beautiful event shows the power and compassion of the Mary, Mother of God. The Immaculate One came to save her little children in Mexico, and no one could stop her! Today she comes anew, to save her children, now throughout the whole world, and again, no one can stop her. Like Juan Diego, we should be radiantly happy as we stand before our families and communities, with the sign of Our Lady of Medjugorje not on our tilmas, but in our hearts and on our faces. That sign is the peace and love of God!
 
Our Lady (in Medjugorje) says to us, even as she said to Juan Diego, “Am I not here, who am your Mother? Are you not under my protection? Am I not your health? Are you not happily within my fold? What else do you wish?”
 
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Malawi Medjugorje Shrine!!
December 11, 2017
St. Damasus I
 
Dear Family of Mary!

The Fruit of Medjugorje testimony that was introduced last week is a very special one. Gay Russell shares the remarkable events that led to the establishment of a Medjugorje Shrine in Malawi, Africa!! Here is a short version of her testimony that was published in the book, “Medjugorje and the Church” by Denis Nolan.

 
Gay Russell of Malawi writes: “In September, 2000, I was given a ticket to make a pilgrimage to Rome and Medjugorje…I was agonizing with Jesus for three days preparing for the trip before the Blessed Sacrament, ‘Why Me, Lord? Why am I blessed to go again? What about all the Malawians who can never go?’…On the third day the phone rang, and a voice, obviously long distance, said to me ‘Is that Gay Russell…You don’t know me. My name is Tony Smith. I love Medjugorje and I want to talk to you about this idea I have…I was hoping to build a replica of Krizevac for all the people in England who could not go, but…last night I heard clearly in my heart: “Build it in Malawi for all the Malawians who can never go”. Now I am asking if you could find a mountain near Blantyre on the summit of which we could build the Krizevac Cross and then place the Stations of the Cross up the mountain just like in Medjugorje. I hope you don’t think I am crazy, but it could become a Medjugorje for the Malawians.'”
 
The Forestry Department gave permission for a replica of the Cross on Krizevac to be built on Mount Michiru and the Archbishop gave permission for the shrine. The bronze plaques depicting the Stations of the Cross were done by Carmello Puzzolo in Italy, identical to the ones he did that are on Krizevac in Medjugorje. (His Rosary plaques, identical to the ones he did for Medjugorje, will soon be placed on an adjoining hill.)
 
On August 5, 2006, Archbishop Tarcisio Ziyaye of the Blantyre Archdiocese, assisted by Bishop Remi St. Marie of Dedza Diocese and Bishop Peter Musikuwa of Chikwawa Diocese, together with 21 priests from various parishes in the southern region, formally consecrated the new Church, “as an incredible gift from God for all those who cannot go to Medjugorje.” More than 5,000 of the faithful attended the first Mass in St. James Church in Blantyre. “Now that the church is complete the keys can be handed over,” proclaimed Fr. Kanjira, the Diocesan Administrator who was Master of Ceremonies for the celebration. Mr. Armenio Da Costa (the builder) presented them to Gay Russell (the Medjugorje Pilgrim who had overseen the project to its completion), who presented them to Tony Smith (the benefactor), who in turn presented them to the Archbishop, who joyfully handed them over to Fr. Mwapuwa, the parish priest. “At this point great jubilation and ululating broke out in the church; the choir began singing the Gloria, and the church bells rang out loud and clear for the first time. It was wonderful to experience the overwhelming joy!”
 
The new St. James Church is identical to St. James Church in Medjugorje in every way! St. James Church in Malawi lies at the foot of Mt. Michiru (about the same height as Mt. Krizevac in Medjugorje) with a cross on the summit identical to the one on Mt. Krizevac, and about the same distance from the church.
 
Gay states: “I believe that this has been given to Africa since it is now almost impossible for any group from here to get to Medjugorje. To acquire the proper visa African passport holders have to travel to Johannesburg or Cairo for a personal interview beforehand. It is believed one day this will become a very special place of pilgrimage for all peoples of Africa, our tie with the grace of Medjugorje!”
 
Gay’s beautiful testimony can be found at this link on the Mary TV website:
 
 
Testimony 293
 
Thank you, Gay, for your many years of serving Our Lady!! You are an inspiration to all of us! And to Tony and all those who made the Malawi Medjugorje Shrine possible, a big thank you!!


Denis and I (with our buddy Steve) climbed Krizevac on October 13, 2017 early in the morning, in honor of the 100th Anniversary of Fatima, and who should be we meet on the way up but Gay Russell!!  Here is our picture together at the Cross!!  What a joy!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

The Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary
 
Dear Family of Mary!

On this wonderful feast day celebrating our Mother’s Immaculate Conception, let’s pray a prayer of consecration to her Immaculate Heart, which she dictated to Jelena. We want to give ourselves to her, completely!!

 
Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
(Given by Our Lady to Jelena Vasilj, 11/28/1983)

O Immaculate Heart of Mary, overflowing 
with goodness, Show us your love for us. 
May the flame of your heart, Oh Mary, 
Descend upon all peoples. 
We love you immensely. 
Impress in our hearts a true love. 
May our hearts yearn for you. 
Oh Mary, sweet and humble of heart, 
Remember us when we sin. 
You know that all mankind are sinners. 
Through your most sacred and maternal heart, 
Cure us from every spiritual illness. 
Make us capable of looking at the beauty of your maternal heart, 
And that, thus, we may be converted 
to the flame of your heart. Amen


In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PS. Here is some interesting news that just came out yesterday, through Aleteia.
Archbishop Hoser shares significant news with us about Medjugorje’s status in the Church. This is also a gift to Our Lady on her Feast Day!
 
Official pilgrimages to Medjugorje are being authorized, confirms Pope Francis’ envoy.
By Jesús Colina | Aleteia News | Dec 07, 2017
 
Archbishop Henryk Hoser tells Aleteia that it still falls to the pope to make final decision on commission’s report about veracity of reported apparitions.
 
“The devotion of Medjugorje is allowed. It’s not prohibited, and need not be done in secret,” confirmed Archbishop Henryk Hoser of Warsaw-Praga, Poland, now some months after being sent to Medjugorje by Pope Francis to evaluate not the veracity of the apparitions, but the state of the pastoral care being provided to the thousands of pilgrims who flock to the site every year.
 
Formerly, pilgrimages to the site were not to be organized by official Church groups, though the faithful could make them privately or through other organizations. Now, the stance on officially-organized pilgrimages will open.
 
“My mission is precisely to analyze the pastoral situation and propose improvements,” the archbishop told Aleteia, about his assignment at the shrine in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which has attracted millions of people since Marian apparitions reportedly began there in 1981.
 
“Today, dioceses and other institutions can organize official pilgrimages. It’s no longer a problem,” explained the archbishop, speaking to us from his residence in a Warsaw neighborhood. “Pope Francis recently asked an Albanian cardinal to give his blessing to the faithful present in Medjugorje,” he added.
 
“I am full of admiration for the work the Franciscans are doing there,” the Polish prelate reported. “With a relatively small team-there is only a dozen of them-they do a huge job of welcoming pilgrims. Every summer they organize a youth festival. This year, there were 50,000 young people from around the world, with more than 700 priests.”
 
“There is a massive number of confessions. They have about 50 confessionals, which are not enough. These are very deep confessions,” he said.
 
“This is a phenomenon. And what confirms the authenticity of the place is the large amount of charitable institutions that exist around the sanctuary. And another aspect as well: the great effort that is being made at the level of Christian formation. Each year, they organize conferences at different levels, for various audiences (priests, doctors, parents, young people, couples …)”
 
“The decree of the former episcopal conference of what used to be Yugoslavia, which, before the Balkan war, advised against pilgrimages in Medjugorje organized by bishops, is no longer relevant,” he said.
 
There are other cases of locations of apparitions, like Kibeho, in Rwanda, where the diocesan bishop agreed to allow the devotion, and then continued the analysis for the recognition of the apparitions.
 
The archbishop revealed that the conclusion of the Commission for the analysis of the apparitions of Medjugorje, which Benedict XVI had entrusted to Cardinal Camillo Ruini, appears to be favorable.
 
“What I find touching is that all the seers have turned to family life,” Archbishop Hoser reflected. “In our day and age, the family is of enormous importance. All of them have a family. Those who were teenagers at the time, are already grandmothers; 37 years have passed!”
 
“But this decision will have to be made by the pope. The file is now at the Secretariat of State. I believe the final decision will be made,” concluded Archbishop Hoser. (From Aleteia, December 7, 2017-  https://aleteia.org/2017/12/07/official-pilgrimages-to-medjugorje-are-being-authorized-confirms-pope-francis-envoy/#.WinZepSjB3w.email
