"Peace, Peace, Peace!                                        26/6/1981   John 14:27

                                                                         Peace I bequeath to you, my own peace I give you, a peace which the world cannot give,

Be reconciled!                                               26/6/1981   Mark 1:14-15

"There is only one God, one faith. Let the people        29/6/1981   John 10: 14-16

                                                           and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in
                                                           the pangs of childbirth. Then a second sign appeared in the sky: there was a huge red

Are all churches the same? "In some, the strength of      1/10/1981
prayer to God is greater, in others, smaller. That
depends on the priests who motivate others to pray. It
depends also on the power which they have."
Why do You appear to us so often and to others who        1/10/1981    Mark 2: 16-17

In answer to the question whether there are other         7/10/1981    1 Timothy 2:5
intermediaries, besides Jesus, between God and Man?                    For there is only one God, and there is only one mediator between God and humanity,
"There is only one mediator between God and man,                       himself a human being, Christ Jesus,
and it is Jesus Christ."

were not able to recognize Him. "It is Jesus.                        But Mary was standing outside near the tomb, weeping. Then, as she wept, she stooped to
                                                                     look inside, and saw two angels in white sitting where the body of Jesus had been, one at
                                                                     the head, the other at the feet. They said, 'Woman, why are you weeping?' 'They have
                                                                     taken my Lord away,' she replied, 'and I don't know where they have put him.' As she said
                                                                     this she turned round and saw Jesus standing there, though she did not realise that it was
                                                                     Jesus. Jesus said to her, 'Woman, why are you weeping? Who are you looking for?'
                                                                     Supposing him to be the gardener, she said, 'Sir, if you have taken him away, tell me where
                                                                     you have put him, and I will go and remove him.' Jesus said, 'Mary!' She turned round then
                                                                     and said to him in Hebrew, 'Rabbuni!' -- which means Master.

On my arrival and when I depart, always sing the song, 13/11/1981
'Come, Come to us O Lord'."




"The world is on the point of receiving great favors        15/11/1981
from me and my Son. May the world keep a strong
confidence."
The Gospa explains the cross, the heart, and the sun to     22/11/1981   Hebrews 9:11-14
the visionaries. "These are the signs of salvation: The
cross is a sign of mercy, just like the heart. The sun is                But now Christ has come, as the high priest of all the blessings which were to come. He

                                                                         purify our conscience from dead actions so that we can worship the living God.
Again a shining silhouette takes the place of the cross     22/11/1981
on Krizevac. The visionaries asked the Blessed Virgin
if it was She. "Why do you ask me, my angels? Have
you not seen me?
The world must find salvation while there is time. Let      22/11/1981   Matthew 25:1-13
it pray with fervor. May it have the spirit of faith."

                                                                         the foolish ones said to the sensible ones, "Give us some of your oil: our lamps are going

The visionaries asked the Gospa questions about the       26/11/1981       Psalm 41:1-3
sick: "Have strong faith, pray, and fast and they will be
cured. Be confident and rest in joy. Go in the peace of                    [For the choirmaster Psalm Of David] Blessed is anyone who cares for the poor and the

"It is necessary for the world to be saved while there is     29/11/1981   Matthew 25:1-13

That night, after the apparition, two luminary signs in   6/8/1982
the form of rays of light were displayed on the Cross at
Krizevac and on the Church. Ivan and the group of
young people had been praying on the hill of
Bijakovici. Before the sign appeared, Our Lady said:
"Now I am going to give you a sign in order to
strengthen your faith."Many members of the prayer
group saw this sign.
Concerning the sick, Mirjana reports: "Have them          18/8/1982
believe and pray; I cannot help him who does not pray
and does not sacrifice. The sick, just like those who are
in good health, must pray and fast for the sick. The
more you believe firmly, the more you pray and fast

mercy of God."

Concerning the eighth secret, Mirjana is frightened and      6/11/1982
prays to Our Lady for mercy on mankind: "I have
prayed; the punishment has been softened. Repeated
prayers and fasting reduce punishments from God, but
it is not possible to avoid entirely the chastisement. Go
on the streets of the city, count those who glorify God
and those who offend Him. God can no longer endure
that."
Concerning the necessity of writing to the Bishop and        8/11/1982
priests about asking the faithful to intensify their
prayers or waiting for other events: "It is better to wait
than to precipitate that."
Concerning responding to the Bishop of Mostar about          18/12/1982
his article concerning events in Medjugorje: "Yes,
respond!"

Should the visionaries only pray with our Lady and the       20/12/1982
pilgrims ask their questions only to the priests? "Yes, it
is better that the children pray with me and that the
pilgrims ask the priests and look for solutions with
them. Meanwhile, I will continue to answer the
questions which they ask me."
The visionaries are invited to record Our Lady's             7/1/1983
testimony as She begins to tell them her life; but, until
they receive Her authorization, they will not be able to
make this information public. Jakov will receive
information until April; Ivanka until May 22; Marija
until July 17; and for Vicka, this transmission lasted
until April 10, 1985 and filled three notebooks.

There were present a U.S. television crew that was         12/1/1983
filming the events in Medjugorje. Fr. John Bertolucci
was the narrator. The name of the television program
was "The Glory of God". Concerned about the police
and the oppression still going on at that time, they
were worried about getting the film out of the country.
They were delighted and at the same time assured
because Our Lady cleverly used their title in Her
answer. "There will be some difficulties, but it will be
for the glory of God."

                                                                  sisters is in need of clothes and has not enough food to live on, and one of you says to
                                                                  them, 'I wish you well; keep yourself warm and eat plenty,' without giving them these bare
                                                                  necessities of life, then what good is that? In the same way faith, if good deeds do not go
                                                                  with it, is quite dead. But someone may say: So you have faith and I have good deeds?
                                                                  Show me this faith of yours without deeds, then! It is by my deeds that I will show you my
                                                                  faith. You believe in the one God -- that is creditable enough, but even the demons have
                                                                  the same belief, and they tremble with fear. Fool! Would you not like to know that faith
                                                                  without deeds is useless? Was not Abraham our father justified by his deed, because he
                                                                  offered his son Isaac on the altar? So you can see that his faith was working together with
                                                                  his deeds; his faith became perfect by what he did. In this way the scripture was fulfilled:
                                                                  Abraham put his faith in God, and this was considered as making him upright; and he
                                                                  received the name 'friend of God'. You see now that it is by deeds, and not only by
                                                                  believing, that someone is justified. There is another example of the same kind: Rahab the
                                                                  prostitute, was she not justified by her deeds because she welcomed the messengers and
                                                                  showed them a different way to leave? As a body without a spirit is dead, so is faith

                                                               without deeds.
Regarding the Mass: "The Mass is the greatest prayer  1983     John 6:48-58
of God. You will never be able to understand its
greatness. That is why you must be perfect and humble          I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate manna in the desert and they are dead; but this is
at Mass, and you should prepare yourselves there."             the bread which comes down from heaven, so that a person may eat it and not die. I am the
                                                               living bread which has come down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live for
                                                               ever; and the bread that I shall give is my flesh, for the life of the world.' Then the Jews
                                                               started arguing among themselves, 'How can this man give us his flesh to eat?' Jesus
                                                               replied to them: In all truth I tell you, if you do not eat the flesh of the Son of man and
                                                               drink his blood, you have no life in you. Anyone who does eat my flesh and drink my
                                                               blood has eternal life, and I shall raise that person up on the last day. For my flesh is real
                                                               food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood lives in me
                                                               and I live in that person. As the living Father sent me and I draw life from the Father, so
                                                               whoever eats me will also draw life from me. This is the bread which has come down from
                                                               heaven; it is not like the bread our ancestors ate: they are dead, but anyone who eats this
                                                               bread will live for ever.
Regarding souls in Purgatory: "These persons wait for   1983   Catechism
your prayers and your sacrifices."

                                                               in Sacred Scripture: "Therefore [Judas Maccabeus] made atonement for the dead, that they
                                                               might be delivered from their sin."609 From the beginning the Church has honored the
                                                               memory of the dead and offered prayers in suffrage for them, above all the Eucharistic
                                                               sacrifice, so that, thus purified, they may attain the beatific vision of God.610 The Church
                                                               also commends almsgiving, indulgences, and works of penance undertaken on behalf of
                                                               the dead:

"The most beautiful thing is to believe."               1983   John 20:27-29

                                                               Then he spoke to Thomas, 'Put your finger here; look, here are my hands. Give me your

                                                               'My Lord and my God!' Jesus said to him: You believe because you can see me. Blessed

"My Son wants to win all souls to Him, the Devil        1983   1 Peter 5:8-10

No, you don't know how to love and you don't know         29/11/1984   Matthew 13:9-13
how to listen with love to the words I am saying to
you.                                                                   Anyone who has ears should listen!' Then the disciples went up to him and asked, 'Why do

love, to pray out of love and not compelled by the fact
that you are carrying a cross.                                         In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth,
                                                                       to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the House of David; and the virgin's name

By means of the cross God is glorified through every      29/11/1984   Matthew 16:24-27
person.

... In God's Name many times I have been giving you       6/12/1984
messages, but you have not listened to me. This
Christmas will be unforgettable for you only if you
accept the messages which I am giving you. Dear
children, don't allow that day of joy to become my
most sorrowful day.
You know that the season of joy is getting closer, but    13/12/1984
without love you will achieve nothing. So first of all,
begin to love your own family, everyone in the parish,
and then you'll be able to love and accept all who are
coming over here. Now let these seven days be a week
when you need to learn to love.
Today I am inviting you to do something concrete for      20/12/1984   Catechism
Jesus Christ. As a sign of dedication to Jesus I want
each family of the parish to bring a single flower                     1159 The sacred image, the liturgical icon, principally represents Christ. It cannot

come and see your dedication to Him!

                                                                       an image. But now that he has made himself visible in the flesh and has lived with men, I
                                                                       can make an image of what I have seen of God . . . and contemplate the glory of the Lord,
                                                                       his face unveiled.27

"I want you to be a flower which will blossom for         21/12/1984
Jesus on Christmas. And a flower that will not stop
blooming when Christmas is over. I want your hearts
to be shepherds to Jesus." (Message given through
Jelena Vasilj.)
This Christmas Satan wanted in a special way to spoil     27/12/1984
God's plans. You, dear children, have discerned Satan
even on Christmas day itself. But God is winning in all
your hearts. So let your hearts keep on being happy.
....Let this week be one of thanksgiving for all the      3/1/1985     Catechism
graces which God has granted you.
                                                                       2637 Thanksgiving characterizes the prayer of the Church which, in celebrating the
                                                                       Eucharist, reveals and becomes more fully what she is. Indeed, in the work of salvation,
                                                                       Christ sets creation free from sin and death to consecrate it anew and make it return to the
                                                                       Father, for his glory. The thanksgiving of the members of the Body participates in that of
                                                                       their Head.

                                                                       2638 As in the prayer of petition, every event and need can become an offering of
                                                                       thanksgiving. The letters of St. Paul often begin and end with thanksgiving, and the Lord
                                                                       Jesus is always present in it: "Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God
                                                                       in Christ Jesus for you"; "Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with
                                                                       thanksgiving."120
Today I want to thank you for all your sacrifices, but    10/1/1985
special thanks to those who have become dear to my
heart and come here gladly because of those who are
in a special way close to my heart, because of them I
am giving messages for the parish. And I will go on
giving them because I love you and I want you to
spread my messages with your heart.

Satan is so strong and with all his might wants to         14/1/1985   Catechism
disturb my plans which I have begun with you. You
pray, just pray and don't stop for a minute! I will pray               409 This dramatic situation of "the whole world [which] is in the power of the evil one"302
to my Son for the realization of all the plans I have                  makes man's life a battle:

                                                                       stretching, so our Lord tells us, from the very dawn of history until the last day. Finding
                                                                       himself in the midst of the battlefield man has to struggle to do what is right, and it is at

Be patient and constant in your prayers. And don't let 14/1/1985       1 Peter 5:8
Satan discourage you. He is working hard in the world.
Be on your guard!"                                                     Keep sober and alert, because your enemy the devil is on the prowl like a roaring lion,
                                                                       looking for someone to devour.

Now it's Lent and you as a parish can turn to my         21/2/1985
messages during Lent out of love. If you do not do
that, I do not wish to keep on giving messages. God is
permitting me that.

from the parish. When it is summer, you saw that you
have a lot of work. Now you don't have work in the
fields, work on your own self personally! Come to
Mass because this is the season given to you. Dear
children, there are enough of those who come regularly
despite bad weather because they love me and wish to
show their love in a special way. What I want from
you is to show me your love by coming to Mass, and
the Lord will reward you abundantly.
I want to thank everyone for all you have done for me,    28/11/1985
especially the youth. I beseech you, dear children,
come to prayer with awareness. In prayer you shall
come to know the greatness of God.
I am calling you to prepare yourselves for Christmas      5/12/1985
by means of penance, prayer and works of charity.
Dear children, do not look toward material things,
because then you will not be able to experience

Jesus. I present Him to you in a special way on that
day and my invitation to you is that on that day we
glorify Jesus and His nativity. Dear children, on that
day pray still more and think more about Jesus. Thank
you for having responded to my call."

I wish to thank all who have listened to my messages        26/12/1985
and who on Christmas Day have lived what I said.
Undefiled by sin from now on, I wish to lead you
further in love. Abandon your hearts to me!
I call you to decide completely for God. I beseech you,     2/1/1986
dear children, to surrender yourselves completely and
you shall be able to live everything I am telling you. It
shall not be difficult for you to surrender yourselves
completely to God..
I call you by your prayers to help Jesus along in the       9/1/1986
fulfillment of all the plans which He is forming here.
And offer your sacrifices to Jesus in order that
everything is fulfilled the way He has planned it and
that Satan can accomplish nothing.
Today also I am calling you to prayer. Your prayers         16/1/1986
are necessary to me so that God may be glorified
through all of you. Dear children, I pray you, obey and
live the Mother's invitation, because only out of love
am I calling you in order that I might help you.
Again I call you to prayer with the heart. If you pray      23/1/1986
with the heart, dear children, the ice of your brothers
will melt and every barrier shall disappear. Conversion
will be easy for all who desire to accept it. That is the
gift which by prayer you must obtain for your
neighbor. Thank you for having responded to my call."
Today I call you all to pray that God's plans for us may    30/1/1986
be realized and also everything that God desires
through you! Help others to be converted, especially
those who are coming to Medjugorje. Dear children,
do not allow Satan to get control of your hearts, so you
would be an image of Satan and not of me. I call you
to pray for how you might be witnesses of my
presence. Without you, God cannot bring to reality that

59
which He desires. God has given a free will to
everyone, and it's in your control.
This parish, which I have chosen, is special and          6/2/1986
different from others. And I am giving great graces to
all who pray with the heart. Dear children, I am giving
the messages first of all to the residents of the parish,
and then to all the others. First of all you must accept
the messages, and then the others. You shall be
answerable to me and my Son, Jesus.

and with your love help me to present the sacrifice.
God will reward you for that.
Today I call you to approach prayer actively. You wish      20/3/1986
to live everything I am telling you, but you are not
succeeding because you are not praying. Dear children,
I beseech you to open yourselves and begin to pray.
Prayer will be your joy. If you make a start, it won't be
boring to you because you will be praying out of joy.
I wish to thank you for all the sacrifices and I invite     27/3/1986
you to the greatest sacrifice, the sacrifice of love.
Without love, you are not able to accept either me or
my Son. Without love, you cannot give an account of
your experiences to others. Therefore, dear children, I
call you to begin to live love within yourselves.
I wish to call you to a living of the Holy Mass. There      3/4/1986    Catechism
are many of you who have sensed the beauty of the

61
Holy Mass, but there are also those who come
unwillingly. I have chosen you, dear children, but                     2180 The precept of the Church specifies the law of the Lord more precisely: "On Sundays

children, are not able to grow without God's blessing.
From day to day you need to seek His blessing so you
will grow normally and perform all your actions in
union with God.
You are absorbed with material things, but in the          17/4/1986   1 Timothy 6:8-10

I call you, dear children, to pray for the gifts of the    17/4/1986

know, dear children, how great my love is, and you do
not know how to accept it. In various ways I wish to
show it to you, but you, dear children, do not recognize
it. You do not understand my words with your heart
and neither are you able to comprehend my love. Dear
children, accept me in your life and so you will be able
to accept all I am saying to you and to which I am
calling you. Thank you for having responded to my
call."
Today my call to you is that in your life you live love    29/5/1986

you can do nothing. Therefore, dear children, I am
calling you to live in mutual love. Only in that way
will you be able to love and accept both me and all
those around you who are coming into your parish.
Everyone will sense my love through you. Therefore, I
beseech you, dear children, to start loving from today
with an ardent love, the love with which I love you.
Thank you for having responded to my call."
Today I am calling on you to decide whether or not         5/6/1986
you wish to live the messages which I am giving you. I
wish you to be active in living and spreading the

messages. Especially, dear children, I wish that you all
be the reflection of Jesus, which will enlighten this
unfaithful world walking in darkness. I wish all of you
to be the light for everyone and that you give witness
in the light. Dear children, you are not called to the
darkness, but you are called to the light. Therefore,
live the light with your own life. Thank you for having

                                                                      As God gradually reveals himself and reveals man to himself, prayer appears as a

Therefore, my call to you is that the beginning and end   3/7/1986    Catechism
of your day always be prayer.
                                                                      2659 We learn to pray at certain moments by hearing the Word of the Lord and sharing in

                                                                      kingdom revealed to "little children," to the servants of Christ, to the poor of the

                                                                      prayer into humble, everyday situations; all forms of prayer can be the leaven to which the

Dear children, I wish to lead you daily more and more     3/7/1986
in prayer, but you are not able to grow because you do
not desire it. My call, dear children, is that for you
prayer be in the first place.
Today I am calling you to holiness. Without holiness      10/7/1986
you cannot live. Therefore, with love overcome every
sin and with love overcome all the difficulties which
are coming to you. Dear children, I beseech you to live
love within yourselves. Thank you for having
responded to my call."

Today I am calling you to reflect upon why I am with     17/7/1986   Catechism

I rejoice because of all of you who are on the way of  24/7/1986
holiness and I beseech you, by your own testimony
help those who do not know how to live in holiness.
Therefore, dear children, let your family be a place
where holiness is birthed. Help everyone to live in
holiness, but especially your own family.
Hatred gives birth to dissensions and does not regard  31/7/1986     James 3:16

Only that way shall you be completely mine and I shall
be able to help you
You know that I promised you an oasis of peace, but    7/8/1986      Catechism – Threats to peace

Dear children, only by prayer are you able to              7/8/1986    Catechism
overcome every influence of Satan in your place. I am                  2744 Prayer is a vital necessity. Proof from the contrary is no less convincing: if we do not

My call to you is that your prayer be the joy of an     14/8/1986      Catechism – seeking God.

long as you yourselves do not experience joy in prayer.                28 In many ways, throughout history down to the present day, men have given expression
From day to day I desire to lead you more and more in                  to their quest for God in their religious beliefs and behavior: in their prayers, sacrifices,
prayer, but I do not wish to force you                                 rituals, meditations, and so forth. These forms of religious expression, despite the
                                                                       ambiguities they often bring with them, are so universal that one may well call man a

                                                                       he allotted the times of their existence and the boundaries of the places where they would

                                                                       indeed he is not far from each one of us. For "in him we live and move and have our

                                                                       2566 Man is in search of God. In the act of creation, God calls every being from
                                                                       nothingness into existence. "Crowned with glory and honor," man is, after the angels,
                                                                       capable of acknowledging "how majestic is the name of the Lord in all the earth."1 Even
                                                                       after losing through his sin his likeness to God, man remains an image of his Creator, and
                                                                       retains the desire for the one who calls him into existence. All religions bear witness to

I thank you for the love which you are showing me.         21/8/1986
You know, dear children, that I love you
immeasurably and daily I pray the Lord to help you to
understand the love which I am showing you.
Therefore, you, dear children, pray, pray, pray!"
My call is that in everything you would be an image        28/8/1986
for others, especially in prayer and witnessing. Dear
children, without you I am not able to help the world. I
desire that you cooperate with me in everything, even

69
in the smallest things. Therefore, dear children, help
me by letting your prayer be from the heart and all of
you surrendering completely to me. That way I shall
be able to teach and lead you on this way which I have
begun with you.
Today again I am calling you to prayer and fasting.          4/9/1986
You know, dear children, that with your help I am able
to accomplish everything and force Satan not to be
seducing to evil and to remove himself from this place.
Dear children, Satan is lurking for each individual.
Especially in everyday affairs he wants to spread
confusion among each one of you. Therefore, dear
children, my call to you is that your day would be only
prayer and complete surrender to God
For these days while you are joyfully celebrating the        11/9/1986
cross, I desire that your cross also would be a joy for
you.
Especially, dear children, pray that you may be able to      11/9/1986
accept sickness and suffering with love the way Jesus
accepted them. Only that way shall I be able with joy
to give out to you the graces and healings which Jesus
is permitting me.
Today again I thank you for all that you have                18/8/1986
accomplished for me in these days. Especially, dear
children, I thank you in the Name of Jesus for the
sacrifices which you offered in this past week. Dear
children, you are forgetting that I desire sacrifices from
you so I can help you and drive Satan away from you.
Therefore, I am calling you again to offer sacrifices
with a special reverence toward God.
By your own peace I am calling you to help others to         25/8/1986
see and begin to seek peace. You, dear children, are at
peace and not able to comprehend lack of peace.
Therefore, I am calling you, so that by your prayer and

70
your life you help to destroy everything that is evil in
people and uncover the deception that Satan makes use
of. You pray that the truth prevails in all hearts.
Today again I am calling you to pray. You, dear           2/10/1986
children, are not able to understand how great the
value of prayer is as long as you yourselves do not say:
'now is the time for prayer, now nothing else is
important to me, now not one person is important to
me but God.' Dear children, consecrate yourselves to
prayer with a special love so that God will be able to
render graces back to you.
You know that I desire to lead you on the way of          9/10/1986
holiness, but I do not want to compel you to be saints
by force. I desire that each of you by your own little
self-denials help yourself and me so I can lead you
from day to day closer to holiness.
Therefore, dear children, I do not desire to force you to 9/10/1986
observe the messages. But rather this long time that I
am with you is a sign that I love you immeasurably
and what I desire of each individual is to become holy.
Today again I want to show you how much I love you,        16/10/1986
but I am sorry that I am not able to help each one to
understand my love. Therefore, dear children, I am
calling you to prayer and complete surrender to God,
because Satan wants to sift you through everyday
affairs and in your life he wants to snatch the first
place. Therefore, dear children, pray without ceasing!
Today again I am calling you to pray. Especially, dear     23/10/1986
children, do I call you to pray for peace. Without your
prayers, dear children, I cannot help you to fulfill the
message which the Lord has given me to give to you.
Therefore, dear children, pray, so that in prayer you
realize what God is giving you.
Today again I desire to call you to take seriously and     30/10/1986
71
carry out the messages which I am giving you. Dear
children, it is for your sake that I have stayed this long
so I could help you to fulfill all the messages which I
am giving you. Therefore, dear children, out of love
for me carry out all the messages which I am giving
you. Thank you for having responded to my call."
Today I wish to call you to pray daily for souls in        6/11/1986   Catechism

to reach God and the love of God. By doing this, dear                  1032 This teaching is also based on the practice of prayer for the dead, already mentioned

Today again I am calling you to pray with your whole      13/11/1986
heart and day by day to change your life. Especially,
dear children, I am calling that by your prayers and
sacrifices you begin to live in holiness, because I
desire that each one of you who has been to this
fountain of grace will come to Paradise with the
special gift which you shall give me, and that is
holiness. Therefore, dear children, pray and daily
change your life in order to become fully holy. I shall
always be close to you.
Today also I am calling you to live and follow with a     20/11/1986   Revelations 3:14-16 – Jesus words about lukewarmness.

Dear children, God does not want you lukewarm and                      'Write to the angel of the church in Laodicea and say, "Here is the message of the Amen,

72
so that you will long for and daily experience God's
love. Dear children, decide for love so that love
prevails in all of you, but not human love, rather God's
love.
Again today I call you to consecrate your life to me          27/11/1986
with love, so I am able to guide you with love. I love
you, dear children, with a special love and I desire to
bring you all to Heaven unto God. I want you to
realize that this life lasts briefly compared to the one in
Heaven. Therefore, dear children, decide again today
for God. Only that way will I be able to show how
much you are dear to me and how much I desire all to
be saved and to be with me in Heaven.
Today I call you to prepare your hearts for these days        4/12/1986
when the Lord particularly desires to purify you from
all the sins of your past. You, dear children, are not
able by yourselves, therefore I am here to help you.
You pray, dear children! Only that way shall you be
able to recognize all the evil that is in you and
surrender it to the Lord so the Lord may completely
purify your hearts. Therefore, dear children, pray
without ceasing and prepare your hearts in penance
and fasting.
I am calling you to pray especially at this time in order     11/12/1986   Catechism, preparing to meet Jesus.

Once again I desire to call you to prayer. When you           18/12/1986
pray you are much more beautiful, like flowers, which
after the snow, show all their beauty and all their
colors become indescribable. So also you, dear

73
children, after prayer show before God all so much
more what is beautiful and are beloved by Him.
Therefore, dear children, pray and open your inner self
to the Lord so that He makes of you a harmonious and
beautiful flower for Paradise. Thank you for having
responded to my call."

He may be glorified through you. My heart carefully

on the way of holiness. Therefore, dear children, pray

giving you for I am doing it with great love toward
God and toward you.
I desire to thank you for every response to the             8/1/1987
messages. Especially, dear children, thank you for all
the sacrifices and prayers which you have presented to
me. Dear children, I desire to keep on giving you still
further messages, only not every Thursday, dear
children, but on each 25th in the month. The time has
come when what my Lord desired has been fulfilled.
Now I will give you less messages, but I am still with
you. Therefore, dear children, I beseech you, listen to
my messages and live them, so I can guide you
Behold, also today I want to call you to start living a     25/1/1987

new life as of today. Dear children, I want you to
comprehend that God has chosen each one of you, in
order to use you in His great plan for the salvation of
mankind. You are not able to comprehend how great
your role is in God's design. Therefore, dear children,
pray so that in prayer you may be able to comprehend
what God's plan is in your regard. I am with you in
order that you may be able to bring it about in all its
fullness.
Today I want to wrap you all in my mantle and lead         25/2/1987
you all along the way of conversion. Dear children, I
beseech you, surrender to the Lord your entire past, all
the evil that has accumulated in your hearts. I want
each one of you to be happy, but in sin nobody can be
happy. Therefore, dear children, pray, and in prayer
you shall realize a new way of joy. Joy will manifest in
your hearts and thus you shall be joyful witnesses of
that which I and My Son want from each one of you. I
am blessing you.
Today I am grateful to you for your presence in this       25/3/1987   John 15:10-11
place, where I am giving you special graces. I call each
one of you to begin to live as of today that life which                If you keep my commandments you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father's
God wishes of you and to begin to perform good                         commandments and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my own joy may be in
works of love and mercy.                                               you and your joy be complete.
I do not want you, dear children, to live the message      25/3/1987   Matthew 23:27-28
and be committing sin which is displeasing to me.
Therefore, dear children, I want each of you to live a                 'Alas for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs that

Today also I am calling you to prayer. You know, dear      25/4/1987
children, that God grants special graces in prayer.
Therefore, seek and pray in order that you may be able

75
to comprehend all that I am giving here. I call you,
dear children, to prayer with the heart. You know that
without prayer you cannot comprehend all that God is
planning through each one of you. Therefore, pray! I
desire that through each one of you God's plan may be
fulfilled, that all which God has planted in your heart
may keep on growing. So pray that God's blessing may
protect each one of you from all the evil that is
threatening you. I bless you, dear children.
I am calling everyone of you to start living in God's     25/5/1987
love. Dear children, you are ready to commit sin, and
to put yourselves in the hand of Satan without
reflecting. I call on each one of you to consciously
decide for God and against Satan. I am your Mother
and, therefore, I want to lead you all to perfect
holiness. I want each one of you to be happy here on
earth and to be with me in Heaven. That is, dear
children, the purpose of my coming here and it's my
desire.
Today I thank you and I want to invite you all to God's 25/6/1987
peace. I want each one of you to experience in your
heart that peace which God gives. I want to bless you
all today. I am blessing you with God's blessing and I
beseech you, dear children, to follow and to live my
way. I love you, dear children, and so not even
counting the number of times, I go on calling you and I
thank you for all that you are doing for my intentions. I
beg you, help me to present you to God and to save
you.
I beseech you to take up the way of holiness beginning 25/7/1987
today. I love you and, therefore, I want you to be holy.
I do not want Satan to block you on that way. Dear
children, pray and accept all that God is offering you
on a way which is bitter. But at the same time, God

76
will reveal every sweetness to whomever begins to go
on that way, and He will gladly answer every call of
God. Do not attribute importance to petty things. Long
for Heaven
Today also I am calling you all in order that each one  25/8/1987
of you decides to live my messages. God has permitted
me also in this year, which the Church has dedicated to
me, to be able to speak to you and to be able to spur
you on to holiness.
Dear children, seek from God the graces which He is     25/8/1987      Hebrews 4:15-16

Today also I want to call you all to prayer. Let prayer 25/9/1987      2 Chronicles 7:14-17

Jesus and He will give you everything that you are                     if my people who bear my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my presence and

Rejoice with me! My heart is rejoicing because of           25/12/1987
Jesus and today I want to give Him to you. Dear
children, I want each one of you to open your heart to
Jesus and I will give Him to you with love. Dear
children, I want Him to change you, to teach you and
to protect you.
Today I am praying in a special way for each one of         25/12/1987
you and I am presenting you to God so He will
manifest Himself in you.
I am calling you to sincere prayer with the heart so that   25/12/1987
every prayer of yours may be an encounter with God.
In your work and in your everyday life, put God in the      25/12/1987
first place. I call you today with great seriousness to
obey me and to do as I am calling you.
Today again I am calling you to complete conversion,        25/1/1988
which is difficult for those who have not chosen God.
God can give you everything that you seek from Him.         25/1/1988
But you seek God only when sicknesses, problems and
difficulties come to you and you think that God is far
from you and is not listening and does not hear your
prayers. No, dear children, that is not the truth. When
you are far from God, you cannot receive graces
because you do not seek them with a firm faith. Day
by day, I am praying for you, and I want to draw you
ever more near to God, but I cannot if you don't want
it. Therefore, dear children put your life in God's
hands. I bless you all.
Today again I am calling you to prayer to complete          25/2/1988
surrender to God. You know that I love you and am
coming here out of love so I could show you the path

79
to peace and salvation for your souls. I want you to
obey me and not permit Satan to seduce you. Dear
children, Satan is very strong and, therefore, I ask you
to dedicate your prayers to me so that those who are
under his influence can be saved. Give witness by your
life. Sacrifice your lives for the salvation of the world.
I am with you, and I am grateful to you, but in heaven
you shall receive the Father's reward which He has
promised to you. Therefore, dear children, do not be
afraid. If you pray, Satan cannot injure you even a
little bit because you are God's children and He is
watching over you. Pray and let the rosary always be
in your hand as a sign to Satan that you belong to me.
Today also I am inviting you to a complete surrender       25/3/1988
to God. Dear children, you are not conscious of how
God loves you with such a great love because He
permits me to be with you so I can instruct you and
help you to find the way of peace. This way, however,
you cannot discover if you do not pray. Therefore, dear
children, forsake everything and consecrate your time
to God and God will bestow gifts upon you and bless
you. Little children, don't forget that your life is
fleeting like a spring flower which today is
wondrously beautiful but tomorrow has vanished.
Therefore, pray in such a way that your prayer, your
surrender to God, may become like a road sign. That
way, your witness will not only have value for
yourselves but for all eternity.
God wants to make you holy. Therefore, through me          25/4/1988
He is inviting you to complete surrender.

conversion and I am protecting you with my motherly
mantle.
I am inviting you to a complete surrender to God.        25/5/1988
Pray, little children, that Satan may not carry you      25/5/1988
about like the branches in the wind. Be strong in God.
I desire that through you the whole world may get to     25/5/1988
know the God of joy. By your life bear witness for
God's joy. Do not be anxious nor worried. God himself
will help you and show you the way.

82
I desire that you love all men with my love. Only in           25/5/1988
that way can love reign over the world.
Little children, you are mine. I love you and want you         25/5/1988
to surrender to me so that I can lead you to God. Never
cease praying so that Satan cannot take advantage of
you.
Pray for the knowledge that you are mine. I bless you          25/5/1988

I am calling you to that love which is loyal and               25/6/1988
pleasing to God. Little children, love bears everything
bitter and difficult for the sake of Jesus who is love.
Therefore, dear children, pray that God come to your
aid, not however according to your desire, but
according to His love. Surrender yourself to God so
that He may heal you, console you and forgive
everything inside you which is a hindrance on the way
of love. In this way God can move your life, and you
will grow in love. Dear children, glorify God with a
hymn of love so that God's love may be able to grow
in you day by day to its fullness.
Today I am calling you to a complete surrender to              25/7/1988
God. Everything you do and everything you possess
give over to God so that He can take control in your
life as the King of all that you possess. That way,
through me, God can lead you into the depths of the
spiritual life. Little children, do not be afraid, because I
am with you even if you think there is no way out and
that Satan is in control. I am bringing peace to you I
am your mother, the Queen of Peace. I am blessing
you with the blessings of joy so that for you God may
be everything in your life.
Today I invite you all to rejoice in the life which God        25/8/1988   Psalm 103:1-5

Today I am inviting all of you, without exception, to    25/9/1988
the way of holiness in your life. God gave you the
grace, the gift of holiness. Pray that you may, more
and more, comprehend it, and in that way, you will be
able, by your life, to bear witness for God. Dear
children, I am blessing you and I intercede to God for
you so that your way and your witness may be a
complete one and a joy for God.
My invitation that you live the messages which I am      25/10/1988
giving you is a daily one, specially, little children,
because I want to draw you closer to the Heart of
Jesus. Therefore, little children, I am inviting you
today to the prayer of consecration to Jesus, my dear
Son, so that each of you may be His. And then I am
inviting you to the consecration of my Immaculate
Heart. I want you to consecrate yourselves as parents,
as families and as parishioners so that all belong to
God through my heart. Therefore, little children, pray
that you comprehend the greatness of this message
which I am giving you. I do not want anything for

84
myself, rather all for the salvation of your soul. Satan
is strong and therefore, you, little children, by constant
prayer, press tightly against my motherly heart.
I call you to prayer, to have an encounter with God in       25/11/1988
prayer. God gives Himself to you, but He wants you to
answer in your own freedom to his invitation. That is
why little children during the day, find yourself a
special time when you could pray in peace and
humility, and have this meeting with God the creator. I
am with you and I intercede for you in front of God, so
watch in vigil, so that every encounter in prayer be the
joy of your contact with God.
I call you to peace. Live it in your heart and all around    25/12/1988
you, so that all will know peace, peace that does not
come from you but from God. Little children, today is
a great day. Rejoice with me. Glorify the Nativity of
Jesus through the peace that I give you. It is for this
peace that I have come as your Mother, Queen of
Peace. Today I give you my special blessing. Bring it
to all creation, so that all creation will know peace.
Today I am calling you to the way of holiness. Pray          25/1/1989
that you may comprehend the beauty and the greatness
of this way where God reveals himself to you in a
special way. Pray that you may be open to everything
that God does through you that in your life you may be
enabled to give thanks to God and to rejoice over
everything that He does through each individual. I give
you my blessing
Today I invite you to prayer of the heart. Throughout        25/2/1989
this season of grace I wish each of you to be united
with Jesus, but without unceasing prayer you cannot
experience the beauty and greatness of the grace which
God is offering you. Therefore, little children, at all
times fill your heart with even the smallest prayers. I

85
am with you and unceasingly keep watch over every
heart which is given to me.
I am calling you to a complete surrender to God. I am      25/3/1989
calling you to great joy and peace which only God can
give. I am with you and I intercede for you every day
before God. I call you, little children, to listen to me
and to live the messages that I am giving you. Already
for years you are invited to holiness but you are still
far away. I am blessing you.
I am calling you to a complete surrender to God. Let       25/4/1989
everything that you possess be in the hands of God.
Only in that way shall you have joy in your heart.
Little children, rejoice in everything that you have.
Give thanks to God because everything is God's gift to
you. That way in your life you shall be able to give
thanks for everything and discover God in everything
even in the smallest flower.
I invite you now to be open to God. See, children, how     25/5/1989
nature is opening herself and is giving life and fruits.
In the same way I invite you to live with God and to
surrender completely to him. Children, I am with you
and I want to introduce you continuously to the joy of
life. I desire that everyone may discover the joy and
love which can be found only in God and which only
God can give. God doesn't want anything from you
only your surrender. Therefore, children, decide
seriously for God because everything else passes
away. Only God doesn't pass away. Pray to be able to
discover the greatness and joy of life which God gives
you.
Today I am calling you to live the messages I have         25/6/1989   As discussed in this book, all of the messages given by Our Lady are in accordance with
been giving you during the past eight years. This is the               the Bible.
time of grace and I desire the grace of God be great for
every single one of you. I am blessing you and I love

86
you with a special love.
Today I am calling you to renew your hearts. Open            25/7/1989
yourselves to God and surrender to him all your
difficulties and crosses so, God may turn everything
into joy. Little children, you cannot open yourselves to
God if you do not pray. Therefore, from today, decide
to consecrate a time in the day only for an encounter
with God in silence. In that way you will be able, with
God, to witness my presence here. Little children, I do
not wish to force you. Rather freely give God your
time, like children of God.
I call you to prayer. By means of prayer, little children,   25/8/1989
you obtain joy and peace. Through prayer you are
richer in the mercy of God. Therefore, little children,
let prayer be the life of each one of you. Especially I
call you to pray so that all those who are far away from
God may be converted. Then our hearts shall be richer
because God will rule in the hearts of all men.
Therefore, little children, pray, pray, pray! Let prayers
begin to rule in the whole world.
Today I invite you to give thanks to God for all the         25/9/1989    See message of 25/8/1988
gifts you have discovered in the course of your life and
even for the least gift that you have perceived. I give
thanks with you and want all of you to experience the
joy of these gifts.
And I want God to be everything for each one of you.         25/9/1989    Psalm 16 – God is everything.
And then, little children, you can grow continuously
on the way of holiness.                                                   [In a quiet voice Of David] Protect me, O God, in you is my refuge. To Yahweh I say,

                                                                          libations to them! Never take their names on my lips. My birthright, my cup is Yahweh;
                                                                          you, you alone, hold my lot secure.
Today also I am inviting you to prayer. I am always          25/10/1989
inviting you, but you are still far away. Therefore,

87
from today, decide seriously to dedicate time to God. I
am with you and I wish to teach you to pray with the
heart. In prayer with the heart you shall encounter
God. Therefore, little children, pray, pray, pray!
I am inviting you for years by these messages which I         25/11/1989
am giving you. Little children, by means of the
messages I wish to make a very beautiful mosaic in
your hearts, so I may be able to present each one of
you to God like the original image.
Therefore, little children, I desire that your decisions      25/11/1989   See message of 25/11/1987
be free before God, because He has given you
freedom. Therefore pray, so that, free from any
influence of Satan, we may decide only for God. I am
praying for you before God and I am seeking your
surrender to God.
Today I bless you in a special way with my motherly           25/12/1989
blessing and I am interceding for you before God that
He gives you the gift of conversion of the heart. For
years I am calling you and exhorting you to a deep
spiritual life in simplicity, but you are so cold.
Therefore, little children, I ask you to accept and live      25/12/1989
the messages with seriousness, so that your soul will
not be sad when I will no longer be with you, and
when I will no longer lead you like insecure children
in their first steps. Therefore, little children, every day
read the messages that I have given you and transform
them into life. I love you and therefore I am calling
you all to the way of salvation with God.
Today I invite you to decide for God once again and to        25/1/1990    Luke 16:13-15
choose Him before everything and above everything,
so that He may work miracles in your life and that day                     13
by day your life may become joy with Him. Therefore,                         'No servant can be the slave of two masters: he will either hate the first and love the

Again today I invite you to live the passion of Jesus in   25/3/1991

of peace to realize it with seriousness and with love in
your life.
There are many who think that they are doing a lot by         25/5/1991
talking about the messages, but do not live them.
Dear children, I invite you to life and to change all the     25/5/1991
negative in you, so that it all turns into the positive and
life.
Dear children, I am with you and I desire to help each        25/5/1991
of you to live and by living, to witness the good news.
I am here, dear children, to help you and to lead you to      25/5/1991

Today I invite you to pray for peace. At this time          25/7/1991
peace is being threatened in a special way
and I am seeking from you to renew fasting and prayer       25/7/1991
in your families.
Dear children, I desire you to grasp the seriousness of     25/7/1991
the situation and that much of what will happen
depends on your prayers and you are praying a little
bit.
Dear children, I am with you and I am inviting you to       25/7/1991
begin to pray and fast seriously as in the first days of
my coming.
Today also I invite you to prayer, now as never before      25/8/1991
when my plan has begun to be realized.
Satan is strong and wants to sweep away my plans of         25/8/1991
peace and joy and make you think that my Son is not
strong in His decisions.
Therefore, I call all of you, dear children, to pray and    25/8/1991
fast still more firmly. I invite you to self-renunciation
for nine days so that, with your help, everything that I
desire to realize through the secrets I began in Fatima,
may be fulfilled.
I call you, dear children, to now grasp the importance      25/8/1991
of my coming and the seriousness of the situation. I
want to save all souls and present them to God.
Therefore, let us pray that everything I have begun be
fully realized.
Today in a special way I invite you all to prayer and       25/9/1991
renunciation. For now as never before Satan wants to
show the world his shameful face by which he wants
to seduce as many people as possible onto the way of
death and sin.

98
Therefore, dear children, help my Immaculate Heart to      25/9/1991
triumph in the sinful world. I beseech all of you to
offer prayers and sacrifices for my intentions so I can
present them to God for what is most necessary.
Forget your desires, dear children, and pray for what      25/9/1991
God desires, and not for what you desire.

"Dear children! Pray! Pray! Pray!"                         25/10/1991
"Dear Children! This time also I am inviting you to        25/11/1991
prayer. Pray that you might be able to comprehend
what God desires to tell you through my presence and
through the messages I am giving you.
I desire to draw you ever closer to Jesus and to His       25/11/1991
wounded heart that you might be able to comprehend
the immeasurable love which gave itself for each one
of you.
Therefore, dear children, pray that from your heart        25/11/1991
would flow a fountain of love to every person both to
the one who hates you and to the one who despises
you. That way you will be able through Jesus' love to
overcome all the misery in this world of sorrows,
which is without hope for those who do not know
Jesus.
I am with you and I love you with the immeasurable         25/11/1991
love of Jesus. Thank you for all your sacrifices and
prayers. Pray so I might be able to help you still more.
Your prayers are necessary to me.
Today in a special way I bring the little Jesus to you,    25/12/1991
that He may bless you with His blessing of peace and
love. Dear children, do not forget that this is a grace
which many people neither understand nor accept.




99
Therefore, you who have said that you are mine, and       25/12/1991
seek my help, give all of yourself. First of all, give
your love and example in your families. You say that
Christmas is a family feast. Therefore, dear children,
put God in the first place in your families, so that He
may give you peace and may protect you not only
from war, but also in peace protect you from every
satanic attack.
When God is with you, you have everything. But when       25/12/1991
you do not want Him, then you are miserable and lost,
and you do not know on whose side you are.
Therefore, dear children, decide for God. Then you
will get everything. Thank you for having responded to
my call."
Today, I am inviting you to a renewal of prayer in your   25/1/1992
families so that way every family will become a joy to
my son Jesus.
Therefore, dear children, pray and seek more time for     25/1/1992    Luke 10:38-42 – Spending time with Jesus is most important.

                                                                      of their word, wherever they live, have an obligation to manifest the new man which they
                                                                      have put on in Baptism and to reveal the power of the Holy Spirit by whom they were
                                                                      strengthened at Confirmation. 270
Therefore, here is what I say to you: Satan is playing    25/3/1992
with you and with your souls and I cannot help you
because you are far away from my heart. Therefore,
pray, live my messages and then you will see the
miracles of God's love in your everyday life.
Today also I invite you to prayer. Only by prayer and     25/4/1992
fasting can war be stopped.

Therefore, my dear little children, pray and by your      25/4/1992
life give witness that you are mine and that you belong
to me, because Satan wishes in these turbulent days to
seduce as many souls as possible.




102
Therefore, I invite you to decide for God and He will   25/4/1992
protect you and show you what you should do and
which path to take.
I invite all those who have said "yes" to me to renew   25/4/1992     Catholic Encyclopedia definition of Consecration
their consecration to my Son Jesus and to His Heart                   (http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/c.htm)

                                                                      gave himself up for each one of us: "The Son of God. . . loved me and gave himself for

                                                                      symbol of that. . . love with which the divine Redeemer continually loves the eternal

                                                                      971 "All generations will call me blessed": "The Church's devotion to the Blessed Virgin is
                                                                      intrinsic to Christian worship."515 The Church rightly honors "the Blessed Virgin with
                                                                      special devotion. From the most ancient times the Blessed Virgin has been honored with
                                                                      the title of 'Mother of God,' to whose protection the faithful fly in all their dangers and

                                                                      Virgin Mary.517
Medjugorje is a sign to all of you and a call to pray and 25/4/1992
live the days of grace that God is giving you.
Therefore, dear children, accept the call to prayer with
seriousness. I am with you and your suffering is also
mine.


103
Today also I invite you to prayer, so that through           25/5/1992
prayer you come still nearer to God.
I am with you and I desire to lead you on the path to        25/5/1992   Catechism
salvation that Jesus gives you.
                                                                         851 Missionary motivation. It is from God's love for all men that the Church in every age
                                                                         receives both the obligation and the vigor of her missionary dynamism, "for the love of
                                                                         Christ urges us on."343 Indeed, God "desires all men to be saved and to come to the
                                                                         knowledge of the truth";344 that is, God wills the salvation of everyone through the
                                                                         knowledge of the truth. Salvation is found in the truth. Those who obey the prompting of
                                                                         the Spirit of truth are already on the way of salvation. But the Church, to whom this truth
                                                                         has been entrusted, must go out to meet their desire, so as to bring them the truth. Because
                                                                         she believes in God's universal plan of salvation, the Church must be missionary.
From day to day, I am nearer to you although you are         25/5/1992
not aware of it and you do not want to admit that you
are only linked to me in a small way with your few
prayers.
When trials and problems arise, you say, "O God! O           25/5/1992
Mother! Where are you?" As for me, I only wait for
your "Yes" to present to Jesus for Him to fill you with
His grace.
That is why, once more, please accept my call and start      25/5/1992
to pray in a new way until prayer becomes joy to you.
Then you will discover that God is all-powerful in
your daily life. I am with you and I am waiting for
you.
Today I am happy, even if in my heart there is still a       25/6/1992
little sadness for all those who have started on this path
and then have left it.
My presence here is to take you on a new path, the           25/6/1992
path to salvation. This is why I call you, day after day
to conversion. But if you do not pray, you cannot say
that you are on the way to being converted.



104
I pray for you and I intercede to God for peace; first     25/6/1992
peace in your hearts and also peace around you, so that
God may be your peace.
Today also I invite you to prayer, a prayer of joy so      25/7/1992
that in these sad days no one amongst you may feel
sadness in prayer, but a joyful meeting with God His
Creator.
Pray, little children, to be able to come closer to me     25/7/1992
and to feel through prayer what it is I desire from you.
I am with you and each day I bless you with my             25/7/1992
maternal blessing so that Our Lord may fill you
abundantly with His grace for your daily life.
Give thanks to God for the grace of my being able to       25/7/1992
be with you because I assure you it is a great grace.
Today I desire to tell you that I love you. I love you     25/8/1992
with my maternal love and I invite you to open
yourselves completely to me so that, through each one
of you, I can convert and save this world which is full
of sin and bad things.
That is why, my dear little children, you should open      25/8/1992
yourselves completely to me so that I may carry you
always further toward the marvelous love of God the
Creator who reveals Himself to you from day to day.
I am with you and I wish to reveal to you and show         25/8/1992
you the God who loves you.
Today again I would like to say to you that I am with      25/9/1992
you also in these troubled days during which Satan
wishes to destroy all that my Son Jesus and I are
building.




105
He desires especially to destroy your souls. He wants       25/9/1992
to take you away as far as possible from the Christian
life and from the commandments that the Church calls
you to live. Satan wishes to destroy everything that is
holy in you and around you. This is why, little
children, pray, pray, pray to be able to grasp all that
God is giving you through my coming.
I invite you to prayer now when Satan is strong and         25/10/1992
wishes to make as many souls as possible his own.
Pray, dear children, and have more trust in me because
I am here in order to help you and to guide you on a
new path toward a new life.
Therefore, dear little children, listen and live what I     25/10/1992
tell you because it is important for you when I shall not
be with you any longer that you remember my words
and all that I told you.
I call you to begin to change your life from the            25/10/1992
beginning and that you decide for conversion not with
words but with your life.
Today, more than ever, I am calling you to pray. May        25/11/1992
your life become a continuous prayer.
Without love you cannot pray. That is why I am              25/11/1992
calling you to love God, the Creator of your lives,
above everything else. Then you will come to know
God and will love Him in everything as He loves you.
Dear children, it is a grace that I am with you. That is    25/11/1992
why you should accept and live my messages for your
own good.
I love you and that is why I am with you, in order to       25/11/1992
teach you and to lead you to a new life of conversion
and renunciation. Only in this way will you discover
God and all that which now seems so far away from
you. Therefore, my dear children, pray.


106
I desire to place all of you under my mantle and           25/12/1992
protect you from all satanic attacks. Today is a day of
peace, but in the whole world there is a great lack of
peace. That is why I call you all to build a new world
of peace with me through prayer. This I cannot do
without you, and this is why I call all of you with my
motherly love and God will do the rest.
So, open yourselves to God's plan and to His designs       25/12/1992
to be able to cooperate with Him for peace and for
everything that is good.
Do not forget that your life does not belong to you, but   25/12/1992   Romans 5:15-18
is a gift with which you must bring joy to others and
lead them to eternal life.                                              There is no comparison between the free gift and the offence. If death came to many
                                                                        through the offence of one man, how much greater an effect the grace of God has had,
                                                                        coming to so many and so plentifully as a free gift through the one man Jesus Christ!
                                                                        Again, there is no comparison between the gift and the offence of one man. One single
                                                                        offence brought condemnation, but now, after many offences, have come the free gift and
                                                                        so acquittal! It was by one man's offence that death came to reign over all, but how much
                                                                        greater the reign in life of those who receive the fullness of grace and the gift of saving
                                                                        justice, through the one man, Jesus Christ. One man's offence brought condemnation on all
                                                                        humanity; and one man's good act has brought justification and life to all humanity.
May the tenderness of the little Jesus always              25/12/1992
accompany you.
Today I call you to accept and live my messages with       25/1/1993
seriousness. These days are the days when you need to
decide for God, for peace and for the good.
May every hatred and jealousy disappear from your          25/1/1993
life and your thoughts, and may there only dwell love
for God and for your neighbor. Thus, and only thus
shall you be able to discern the signs of the time.
I am with you and I guide you into a new time, a time      25/1/1993
which God gives you as grace so that you may get to
know him more.


107
Today I bless you with my motherly blessing and I          25/2/1993
invite you all to conversion. I wish that each of you
decide for a change of life and that each of you works
more in the Church not through words and thoughts
but through example, so that your life may be a joyful
testimony for Jesus. You cannot say that you are
converted, because your life must become a daily
conversion.
In order to understand what you have to do, little         25/2/1993
children, pray and God will give you what you
completely have to do, and where you have to change.
I am with you and place you all under my mantle.
Today like never I call you to pray for peace, for peace   25/3/1993
in your hearts, peace in your families and peace in the
whole world, because Satan wants war, wants lack of
peace, wants to destroy all which is good. Therefore,
dear children, pray, pray, pray.
Today I invite you all to awaken your hearts to love.      25/4/1993
Go into nature and look how nature is awakening and
it will be a help to you to open your hearts to the love
of God, the Creator.
I desire you to awaken love in your families so that       25/4/1993
where there is unrest and hatred, love will reign and
when there is love in your hearts then there is also
prayer.
And, dear children, do not forget that I am with you       25/4/1993
and I am helping you with my prayer that God may
give you the strength to love. I bless and love you with
my motherly love.
Today I invite you to open yourselves to God by            25/5/1993
means of prayer so the Holy Spirit may begin to work
miracles in you and through you.



108
I am with you and I intercede before God for each one      25/5/1993
of you because, dear children, each one of you is
important in my plan of salvation. I invite you to be
carriers of good and peace.
God can give you peace only if you convert and pray.       25/5/1993
Therefore, my dear little children, pray, pray, pray and
do that which the Holy Spirit inspires you.
Today I also rejoice at your presence here. I bless you    25/6/1993
with my motherly blessing and intercede for each one
of you before God.
I call you anew to live my messages and to put them        25/6/1993
into life and practice. I am with you and bless all of
you day by day.
Dear children, these are special times and, therefore, I   25/6/1993
am with you to love and protect you; to protect your
hearts from Satan and to bring you all closer to the
heart of my Son, Jesus.
I thank you for your prayers and for the love you show     25/7/1993
toward me. I invite you to decide to pray for my
intentions. Dear children, offer novenas, making
sacrifices wherein you feel the most bound. I want
your life to be bound to me. I am your Mother, little
children, and I do not want Satan to deceive you for
He wants to lead you the wrong way, but he cannot if
you do not permit him. Therefore, little children,
renew prayer in your hearts, and then you will
understand my call and my live desire to help you.
I want you to understand that I am your Mother, that I     25/8/1993
want to help you and call you to prayer. Only by
prayer can you understand and accept my messages
and practice them in your life. Read Sacred Scripture,
live it, and pray to understand the signs of the times.
This is a special time, therefore, I am with you to draw
you close to my heart and the heart of my Son, Jesus.

109
Dear little children, I want you to be children of the
light and not of the darkness. Therefore, live what I am
telling you.
I am your Mother and I invite you to come closer to        25/9/1993
God through prayer because only He is your peace,
your savior.
Therefore, little children, do not seek comfort in         25/9/1993
material things, but rather seek God. I am praying for
you and I intercede before God for each individual.
I am looking for your prayers that you accept me and       25/9/1993
accept my messages as in the first days of the
apparitions and only then when you open your hearts
and pray will miracles happen.
These years I have been calling you to pray, to live       25/10/1993
what I am telling you, but you are living my messages
a little. You talk, but do not live, that is why little
children, this war is lasting so long.
I invite you to open yourselves to God and in your         25/10/1993
hearts to live with God, living the good and giving
witness to my messages.
I love you and wish to protect you from every evil, but 25/10/1993
you do not desire it. Dear children, I cannot help you if
you do not live God's commandments, if you do not
live the mass, if you do not give up sin.
I invite you to be apostles of love and goodness. In this 25/10/1993
world of unrest give witness to God and God's love,
and God will bless you and give you what you seek
from Him.
I invite you in this time like never before to prepare for 25/11/1993
the coming of Jesus. Let little Jesus reign in your
hearts and only then when Jesus is your friend will you
be happy. It will not be difficult for you either to pray
or offer sacrifices or to witness Jesus' greatness in your
life because He will give you strength and joy in this
110
time. I am close to you by my intercession and prayer
and I love and bless all of you.
Today I rejoice with the little Jesus and I desire that   25/12/1993
Jesus' joy may enter into every heart. Little children,
with the message I give you a blessing with my son
Jesus, so that in every heart peace may reign. I love
you, little children, and I invite all of you to come
closer to me by means of prayer.
You talk and talk but do not pray. Therefore, little      25/12/1993
children, decide for prayer. Only in this way will you
be happy and God will give your what you seek from
Him.
You are all my children. I love you. But, little children, 25/1/1994
you must not forget that without prayer you cannot be
close to me.
In these times Satan wants to create disorder in your      25/1/1994
hearts and in your families. Little children, do not give
in. You should not allow him to lead you and your life.
I love you and intercede before God for you. Little        25/1/1994
children, pray.
Today I thank you for your prayers. All of you have       25/2/1994
helped me so that this war may end as soon as
possible. I am close to you and I pray for each one of
you and I beg you: pray, pray, pray.
Only through prayer can we defeat evil and protect all    25/2/1994
that Satan wants to destroy in your lives.
I am your Mother and I love you all equally, and I        25/2/1994
intercede for you before God.
Today I rejoice with you and I invite you to open         25/3/1994
yourselves to me, and become an instrument in my
hands for the salvation of the world.


111
I desire, little children, that all of you who have felt the   25/3/1994
odour of holiness through these messages which I am
giving you to carry, to carry it into this world, hungry
for God and God's love.
I thank you all for having responded in such a number          25/3/1994
and I bless you all with my motherly blessing.
Today I invite you to decide to pray according to my           25/4/1994
intention. Little children, I invite each one of you to
help my plan to be realized through this parish. Now I
invite you in a special way, little children, to decide to
go along the way of holiness. Only this way will you
be close to me. I love you and I desire to conduct you
all with me to Paradise.
But, if you do not pray and if you are not humble and          25/4/1994
obedient to the messages which I am giving you, I
cannot help you.
I invite you all to have more trust in me and to live my       25/5/1994
messages more deeply. I am with you and I intercede
before God for you but also I wait for your hearts to
open up to my messages.
Rejoice because God loves you and gives you the                25/5/1994
possibility to convert every day and to believe more in
God the Creator.
Today I rejoice in my heart in seeing you all present          25/6/1994
here. I bless you and I call you all to decide to live my
messages which I give you here. I desire, little
children, to guide you all to Jesus because He is your
salvation.
Therefore, little children, the more you pray the more         25/6/1994
you will be mine and of my Son, Jesus. I bless you all
with my motherly blessing




112
Today I invite you to decide to give time patiently for    25/7/1994
prayer. Little children, you cannot say you are mine
and that you have experienced conversion through my
messages if you are not ready to give time to God
every day.
I am close to you and I bless you all. Little children, do 25/7/1994     Catechism
not forget that if you do not pray you are not close to
me, nor are you close to the Holy Spirit who leads you                   2672 The Holy Spirit, whose anointing permeates our whole being, is the interior Master
along the path to holiness.                                              of Christian prayer. He is the artisan of the living tradition of prayer. To be sure, there are
                                                                         as many paths of prayer as there are persons who pray, but it is the same Spirit acting in all
                                                                         and with all. It is in the communion of the Holy Spirit that Christian prayer is prayer in the
                                                                         Church.
Today I am united with you in prayer in a special way,      25/8/1994
praying for the gift of the presence of my most beloved
son in your home country.
Pray, little children, for the health of my most beloved    25/8/1994
son, who suffers, and whom I have chosen for these
times.
I pray and intercede before my Son, Jesus, so that the      25/8/1994
dream that your fathers had may be fulfilled.
Pray, little children, in a special way, because Satan is   25/8/1994
strong and wants to destroy hope in your heart. I bless
you.
I rejoice with you and I invite you to prayer. Little       25/9/1994
children, pray for my intention. Your prayers are
necessary to me, through which I desire to bring you
closer to God. He is your salvation. God sends me to
help you and to guide you towards paradise, which is
your goal. Therefore, little children, pray, pray, pray.
I am with you and I rejoice today because the Most          25/10/1994
High has granted me to be with you and to teach you
and to guide you on the path of perfection.



113
Little children, I wish you to be a beautiful bouquet of   25/10/1994
flowers which I wish to present to God for the day of
All Saints.
I invite you to open yourselves and to live, taking the    25/10/1994
saints as an example. Mother Church has chosen them,
that they may be an impulse for your daily life.
Today I call you to prayer. I am with you and I love       25/11/1994
you all. I am your Mother and I wish that your hearts
be similar to my heart.
Little children, without prayer you cannot live and say    25/11/1994
that you are mine.
Prayer is joy. Prayer is what the human heart desires.     25/11/1994
Therefore, get closer, little children, to my Immaculate
Heart and you will discover God.
Today I rejoice with you and I am praying with you for     25/12/1994
peace: peace in your hearts, peace in your families,
peace in your desires, peace in the whole world.
May the King of Peace bless you today and give your        25/12/1994
peace.
I bless you and I carry each one of your in my heart.      25/12/1994
I invite you to open the door of your heart to Jesus as    25/1/1995
the flower opens itself to the sun. Jesus desires to fill
your hearts with peace and joy.
You cannot, little children, realize peace if your are not 25/1/1995
at peace with Jesus. Therefore, I invite you to
confession so Jesus may be your truth and peace.
So, little children, pray to have the strength to realize  25/1/1995
what I am telling you. I am with your and I love you.




114
Today I invite you to become missionaries of my              25/2/1995
messages, which I am giving here through this place
that is dear to me. God has allowed me to stay this
long with you and therefore, little children, I invite you
to live with love the messages I give and to transmit
them to the whole world, so that a river of love flows
to people who are full of hatred and without peace.
I invite you, little children, to become peace where         25/2/1995
there is no peace and light where there is darkness, so
that each heart accepts the light and the way of
salvation.
Today I invite you to live the peace in your hearts and      25/3/1995
families. There is no peace, little children, where there
is no prayer and there is no love, where there is no
faith. Therefore, little children, I invite you all, to
decide again today for conversion.
I am close to you and I invite you all, little children,     25/3/1995
into my embrace to help you, but you do not want and
in this way, Satan is tempting you, and in the smallest
thing, your faith disappears. This is why little children,
pray and through prayer, you will have blessing and
peace.
Today I call you to love. Little children, without love      25/4/1995
you can neither live with God nor with brother.
Therefore, I call all of you to open your hearts to the      25/4/1995
love of God that is so great and open to each one of
you.
God, out of love for man, has sent me among you to           25/4/1995
show you the path of salvation, the path of love.
If you do not first love God, then you will neither be       25/4/1995
able to love neighbor nor the one you hate. Therefore,
little children, pray and through prayer you will
discover love.

115
I invite you, little children, to help me through your       25/5/1995
prayers so that as many hearts as possible come close
to my Immaculate Heart.
Satan is strong and with all his forces wants to bring       25/5/1995
closer the most people possible to himself and to sin.
That is why he is on the prowl to snatch more every
moment.
I beg you, little children, pray and help me to help you.    25/5/1995
I am your mother and I love you and that is why I wish
to help you.
Today I am happy to see you in such great numbers,           25/6/1995
that you have responded and have come to live my
messages.
I invite you, little children, to be my joyful carriers of   25/6/1995
peace in this troubled world. Pray for peace so that as
soon as possible a time of peace, which my heart waits
impatiently for, may reign.
I am near to you, little children, and intercede for         25/6/1995
every one of you before the Most High. I bless you
with my motherly blessing.
Today I invite you to prayer because only in prayer          25/7/1995   Catechism
can you understand my coming here. The Holy Spirit
will enlighten you to understand that you must convert.                  1989 The first work of the grace of the Holy Spirit is conversion, effecting justification in
                                                                         accordance with Jesus' proclamation at the beginning of the Gospel: "Repent, for the
                                                                         kingdom of heaven is at hand."38 Moved by grace, man turns toward God and away from
                                                                         sin, thus accepting forgiveness and righteousness from on high. "Justification is not only
                                                                         the remission of sins, but also the sanctification and renewal of the interior man.39
Little children, I wish to make of you a most beautiful      25/7/1995
bouquet prepared for eternity but you do not accept the
way of conversion, the way of salvation that I am
offering you through these apparitions.
Little children, pray, convert your hearts and come          25/7/1995
closer to me.
May good overcome evil.                                      25/7/1995   Romans 12:21

116
                                                                        Do not be mastered by evil, but master evil with good.
I love you and bless you.                                   25/7/1995
Today I invite you to prayer. Let prayer be life for you.   25/8/1995
A family cannot say that it is in peace if it does not
pray. Therefore, let your morning begin with morning
prayer, and the evening end with thanksgiving.
Little children, I am with you, and I love you and I        25/8/1995
bless you and I wish for every one of you to be in my
embrace. You cannot be in my embrace if you are not
ready to pray every day.
Today I invite you to fall in love with the Most Holy       25/9/1995
Sacrament of the Altar. Adore Him, little children, in
your Parishes and in this way you will be united with
the entire world. Jesus will become your friend and
you will not talk of Him like someone whom you
barely know.
Unity with Him will be a joy for you and you will           25/9/1995   Catechism
become witnesses to the love of Jesus that He has for
every creature.                                                         795 Christ and his Church thus together make up the "whole Christ" (Christus totus). The
                                                                        Church is one with Christ. The saints are acutely aware of this unity: Let us rejoice then
                                                                        and give thanks that we have become not only Christians, but Christ himself. Do you
                                                                        understand and grasp, brethren, God's grace toward us? Marvel and rejoice: we have
                                                                        become Christ. For if he is the head, we are the members; he and we together are the whole
                                                                        man. . . . The fullness of Christ then is the head and the members. But what does "head and
                                                                        members" mean? Christ and the Church.230

                                                                        Our redeemer has shown himself to be one person with the holy Church whom he has
                                                                        taken to himself.231

                                                                        Head and members form as it were one and the same mystical person.232

                                                                        A reply of St. Joan of Arc to her judges sums up the faith of the holy doctors and the good
                                                                        sense of the believer: "About Jesus Christ and the Church, I simply know they're just one

117
                                                                         thing, and we shouldn't complicate the matter."233
Little children, when you adore Jesus you are also          25/9/1995    Catechism
close to me.
                                                                         964 Mary's role in the Church is inseparable from her union with Christ and flows directly
                                                                         from it. "This union of the mother with the Son in the work of salvation is made manifest
                                                                         from the time of Christ's virginal conception up to his death";504 it is made manifest above
                                                                         all at the hour of his Passion: Thus the Blessed Virgin advanced in her pilgrimage of faith,
                                                                         and faithfully persevered in her union with her Son unto the cross. There she stood, in
                                                                         keeping with the divine plan, enduring with her only begotten Son the intensity of his
                                                                         suffering, joining herself with his sacrifice in her mother's heart, and lovingly consenting
                                                                         to the immolation of this victim, born of her: to be given, by the same Christ Jesus dying
                                                                         on the cross, as a mother to his disciple, with these words: "Woman, behold your son."505
Today I invite you to go into nature because there you      25/10/1995
will meet God the Creator.
Today I invite you, little children, to thank God for all   25/10/1995
that He gives you. In thanking Him you will discover
the Most High and all the goods that surround you.
God is great and His love for every creature is great.      25/10/1995
Therefore, pray to be able to understand the love and
goodness of God.
In the goodness and the love of God the Creator, I also     25/10/1995
am with you as a gift.
Today I invite you that each of you begin again to          25/11/1995   yyyy
love, in the first place, God who saved and redeemed
each of you, and then brothers and sisters in your
proximity. Without love, little children, you cannot
grow in holiness and cannot do good deeds. Therefore,
little children, pray without ceasing that God reveals
His love to you. I have invited all of you to unite
yourselves with me and to love. Today I am with you
and invite you to discover love in your hearts and in
the families. For God to live in your hearts, you must
love.
Today I also rejoice with you and I bring you little        25/12/1995
118
Jesus, so that He may bless you. I invite you, dear
children, so that your life may be united with Him.
Jesus is the King of Peace and only He can give you
the peace that you seek. I am with you and I present
you to Jesus in a special way, now in this new time in
which one should decide for Him. This time is the time
of grace.
Today I invite you to decide for peace. Pray that God      25/1/1996
give you the true peace. Live peace in your hearts and
you will understand, dear children, that peace is the
gift of God. Dear children, without love you cannot
live peace. The fruit of peace is love and the fruit of
love is forgiveness. I am with you and I invite all of
you, little children, that before all else forgive in the
family and then you will be able to forgive others.
Today I invite you to conversion. This is the most         25/2/1996
important message that I have given you here. Little
children, I wish that each of you become a carrier of
my messages. I invite you, little children, to live the
messages that I have given you over these years. This
time is a time of grace. Especially now, when the
Church also is inviting you to prayer and conversion. I
also, little children, invite you to live my messages that
I have given you during the time since I appear here.
I invite you to decide again to love God above all else. 25/3/1996
In this time when due to the spirit of consumerism one
forgets what it means to love and to cherish true
values, I invite you again, little children, to put God in
the first place in your life. Do not let Satan attract you
through material things but, little children, decide for
God who is freedom and love. Choose life and not
death of the soul, little children, and in this time when
you meditate upon the suffering and death of Jesus I
invite you to decide for life which blossomed through

119
the Resurrection, and that your life may be renewed
today through conversion that shall lead you to eternal
life.
Today I invite you again to put prayer in the first place 25/4/1996
in your families. Little children, when God is in the
first place, then you will, in all that you do, seek the
will of God. In this way your daily conversion will
become easier. Little children, seek with humility that
which is not in order in your hearts, and you shall
understand what you have to do. Conversion will
become a daily duty that you will do with joy. Little
children, I am with you, I bless you all and I invite you
to become my witnesses by prayer and personal
conversion.
Today I wish to thank you for all your prayers and         25/5/1996
sacrifices that you, during this month which is
consecrated to me, have offered to me. Little children,
I also wish that you all become active during this time
that is through me connected to heaven in a special
way. Pray in order to understand that you all, through
your life and your example, ought to collaborate in the
work of salvation. Little children, I wish that all people
convert and see me and my son, Jesus, in you. I will
intercede for you and help you to become the light. In
helping the other, your soul will also find salvation.
Today I thank you for all the sacrifices you have          25/6/1996
offered me these days. Little children, I invite you to
open yourselves to me and to decide for conversion.
Your hearts, little children, are still not completely
open to me and therefore, I invite you again to open to
prayer so that in prayer the Holy Spirit will help you,
that your hearts become of flesh and not of stone.
Little children, thank you for having responded to my
call and for having decided to walk with me toward

120
holiness."
Today I invite you to decide every day for God. Little       25/7/1996
children, you speak much about God, but you witness
little with your life. Therefore, little children, decide
for conversion, that your life may be true before God,
so that in the truth of your life you witness the beauty
God gave you. Little children, I invite you again to
decide for prayer because through prayer, you will be
able to live the conversion. Each one of you shall
become in the simplicity, similar to a child which is
open to the love of the Father.
Listen, because I wish to speak to you and to invite         25/8/1996
you to have more faith and trust in God, who loves you
immeasurably. Little children, you do not know how to
live in the grace of God, that is why I call you all
anew, to carry the word of God in your heart and in
thoughts. Little children, place the Sacred Scripture in
a visible place in your family, and read and live it.
Teach your children, because if you are not an
example to them, children depart into godlessness.
Reflect and pray and then God will be born in your
heart and your heart will be joyous.
Today I invite you to offer your crosses and suffering       25/9/1996
for my intentions. Little children, I am your mother
and I wish to help you by seeking for you the grace
from God. Little children, offer your sufferings as a
gift to God so they become a most beautiful flower of
joy. That is why, little children, pray that you may
understand that suffering can become joy and the cross
the way of joy.
Today I invite you to open yourselves to God the             25/10/1996
Creator, so that He changes you. Little children, you
are dear to me. I love you all and I call you to be closer
to me and that your love towards my Immaculate Heart

121
be more fervent. I wish to renew you and lead you
with my Heart to the Heart of Jesus, which still today
suffers for you and calls you to conversion and
renewal. Through you, I wish to renew the world.
Comprehend, little children, that you are today the salt
of the earth and the light of the world. Little children, I
invite you and I love you and in a special way implore:
Convert!"
Today, again, I invite you to pray, so that through         25/11/1996
prayer, fasting and small sacrifices you may prepare
yourselves for the coming of Jesus. May this time,
little children, be a time of grace for you. Use every
moment and do good, for only in this way will you feel
the birth of Jesus in your hearts. If with your life you
give an example and become a sign of God's love, joy
will prevail in the hearts of men.
Today I am with you in a special way, holding little        25/12/1996
Jesus in my lap and I invite you, little children, to open
yourselves to His call. He calls you to joy. Little
children, joyfully live the messages of the Gospel,
which I am repeating in the time since I am with you.
Little children, I am your Mother and I desire to reveal
to you the God of love and the God of peace. I do not
desire for your life to be in sadness but that it be
realized in joy for eternity, according to the Gospel.
Only in this way will your life have meaning.
I invite you to reflect about your future. You are          25/1/1997
creating a new world without God, only with your own
strength and that is why you are unsatisfied and
without joy in the heart. This time is my time and that
is why, little children, I invite you again to pray. When
you find unity with God, you will feel hunger for the
word of God and your heart, little children, will
overflow with joy. You will witness God's love

122
wherever you are. I bless you and I repeat to you that I
am with you to help you.
Today I invite you in a special way to open yourselves       25/2/1997
to God the Creator and to become active. I invite you,
little children, to see at this time who needs your
spiritual or material help. By your example, little
children, you will be the extended hands of God,
which humanity is seeking. Only in this way will you
understand, that you are called to witness and to
become joyful carriers of God's word and of His love.
Today, in a special way, I invite you to take the cross      25/3/1997
in the hands and to meditate on the wounds of Jesus.
Ask of Jesus to heal your wounds, which you, dear
children, during your life sustained because of your
sins or the sins of your parents. Only in this way, dear
children, you will understand that the world is in need
of healing of faith in God the Creator. By Jesus'
passion and death on the cross, you will understand
that only through prayer you, too, can become true
apostles of faith; when, in simplicity and prayer, you
live faith which is a gift.
Today I call you to have your life be connected with         25/4/1997
God the Creator, because only in this way will your
life have meaning and you will comprehend that God
is love. God sends me to you out of love, that I may
help you to comprehend that without Him there is no
future or joy and, above all, there is no eternal
salvation. Little children, I call you to leave sin and to
accept prayer at all times, that you may in prayer come
to know the meaning of your life. God gives Himself
to him who seeks Him.
Today I invite you to glorify God and for the Name of        25/5/1997
God to be holy in your hearts and in your life. Little
children, when you are in the holiness of God, He is

123
with you and gives you peace and joy which come
only from God through prayer. That is why, little
children, renew prayer in your families and your heart
will glorify the holy Name of God and heaven will
reign in your heart. I am close to you and I intercede
for you before God.
Today I am with you in a special way and I bring you       25/6/1997
my motherly blessing of peace. I pray for you and I
intercede for you before God, so that you may
comprehend that each of you is a carrier of peace. You
cannot have peace if your heart is not at peace with
God. That is why, little children, pray, pray, pray,
because prayer is the foundation of your peace. Open
your heart and give time to God so that He will be
your friend. When true friendship with God is realized,
no storm can destroy it.
Today I invite you to respond to my call to prayer. I      25/7/1997
desire, dear children, that during this time you find a
corner for personal prayer. I desire to lead you towards
prayer with the heart. Only in this way will you
comprehend that your life is empty without prayer.
You will discover the meaning of your life when you
discover God in prayer. That is why, little children,
open the door of your heart and you will comprehend
that prayer is joy without which you cannot live.
God gives me this time as a gift to you, so that I may     25/8/1997
instruct and lead you on the path of salvation. Dear
children, now you do not comprehend this grace, but
soon a time will come when you will lament for these
messages. That is why, little children, live all of the
words which I have given you through this time of
grace and renew prayer, until prayer becomes a joy for
you. Especially, I call all those who have consecrated
themselves to my Immaculate Heart to become an

124
example to others. I call all priests and religious
brothers and sisters to pray the rosary and to teach
others to pray. The rosary, little children, is especially
dear to me. Through the rosary open your heart to me
and I am able to help you.
Today I call you to comprehend that without love you 25/9/1997
cannot comprehend that God needs to be in the first
place in your life. That is why, little children, I call
you all to love, not with a human but with God's love.
In this way, your life will be more beautiful and
without an interest. You will comprehend that God
gives Himself to you in the simplest way out of love.
Little children, so that you may comprehend my words
which I give you out of love, pray, pray, pray and you
will be able to accept others with love and to forgive
all who have done evil to you. Respond with prayer;
prayer is a fruit of love towards God the Creator.
Also today I am with you and I call all of you to renew 25/10/1997
yourselves by living my messages. Little children, may
prayer be life for you and may you be an example to
others. Little children, I desire for you to become
carriers of peace and of God's joy to today's world
without peace. That is why, little children, pray, pray,
pray! I am with you and I bless you with my motherly
peace.
Today I invite you to comprehend your Christian            25/11/1997
vocation. Little children, I led and am leading you
through this time of grace, that you may become
conscious of your Christian vocation. Holy martyrs
died witnessing: I am a Christian and love God over
everything. Little children, today also I invite you to
rejoice and be joyful Christians, responsible and
conscious that God called you in a special way to be
joyfully extended hands toward those who do not

125
believe, and that through the example of your life, they
may receive faith and love for God. Therefore, pray,
pray, pray that your heart may open and be sensitive
for the Word of God.
Also today I rejoice with you and I call you to the        25/12/1997
good. I desire that each of you reflect and carry peace
in your heart and say: I want to put God in the first
place in my life. In this way, little children, each of
you will become holy. Little children, tell everyone, I
want the good for you and he will respond with the
good and, little children, good will come to dwell in
the heart of each man. Little children, tonight I bring to
you the good of my Son who gave His life to save you.
That is why, little children, rejoice and extend your
hands to Jesus who is only good.
Today again I call all of you to prayer. Only with         25/1/1998
prayer, dear children, will your heart change, become
better, and be more sensitive to the Word of God.
Little children, do not permit satan to pull you apart
and to do with you what he wants. I call you to be
responsible and determined and to consecrate each day
to God in prayer. May Holy Mass, little children, not
be a habit for you, but life. By living Holy Mass each
day, you will feel the need for holiness and you will
grow in holiness. I am close to you and intercede
before God for each of you, so that He may give you
strength to change your heart.
Also today I am with you and I, again, call all of you     25/2/1998
to come closer to me through your prayers. In a special
way, I call you to renunciation in this time of grace.
Little children, meditate on and live, through your little
sacrifices, the passion and death of Jesus for each of
you. Only if you come closer to Jesus will you
comprehend the immeasurable love He has for each of

126
you. Through prayer and your renunciation you will
become more open to the gift of faith and love towards
the Church and the people who are around you. I love
you and bless you.
Also today I call you to fasting and renunciation. Little     25/3/1998
children, renounce that which hinders you from being
closer to Jesus. In a special way I call you: Pray,
because only through prayer will you be able to
overcome your will and discover the will of God even
in the smallest things. By your daily life, little
children, you will become an example and witness that
you live for Jesus or against Him and His will. Little
children, I desire that you become apostles of love. By
loving, little children, it will be recognized that you are
mine.
Today I call you, through prayer, to open yourselves to       25/4/1998
God as a flower opens itself to the rays of the morning
sun. Little children, do not be afraid. I am with you
and I intercede before God for each of you so that your
heart receives the gift of conversion. Only in this way,
little children, will you comprehend the importance of
grace in these times and God will become nearer to
you.
Today I call you, through prayer and sacrifice, to            25/5/1998
prepare yourselves for the coming of the Holy Spirit.
Little children, this is a time of grace and so, again, I
call you to decide for God the Creator. Allow Him to
transform and change you. May your heart be prepared
to listen to, and live, everything which the Holy Spirit
has in His plan for each of you. Little children, allow
the Holy Spirit to lead you on the way of truth and
salvation towards eternal life.
Today I desire to thank you for living my messages. I         25/9/1998
bless you all with my motherly blessing and I bring

127
you all before my Son Jesus.
I again invite you to prayer. You have no excuse to        25/1/1999
work more because nature still lies in deep sleep. Open
yourselves in prayer. Renew prayer in your families.
Put Holy Scripture in a visible place in your families,
read it, reflect on it and learn how God loves His
people. His love shows itself also in present times
because He sends me to call you upon the path of
salvation
Also today I am with you in a special way                  25/2/1999
contemplating and living the passion of Jesus in my
heart. Little children, open your hearts and give me
everything that is in them: joys, sorrows and each,
even the smallest, pain, that I may offer them to Jesus;
so that with His immeasurable love, He may burn and
transform your sorrows into the joy of His
resurrection. That is why, I now call you in a special
way, little children, for your hearts to open to prayer,
so that through prayer you may become friends of
Jesus.
I call you to prayer with the heart. In a special way,     25/3/1999
little children, I call you to pray for conversion of
sinners, for those who pierce my heart and the heart of
my Son Jesus with the sword of hatred and daily
blasphemies. Let us pray, little children, for all those
who do not desire to come to know the love of God,
even though they are in the Church. Let us pray that
they convert, so that the Church may resurrect in love.
Only with love and prayer, little children, can you live
this time which is given to you for conversion. Place
God in the first place, then the risen Jesus will become
your friend.
Also today I call you to prayer. Little children, be       25/4/1999
joyful carriers of peace and love in this peaceless

128
world. By fasting and prayer, witness that you are
mine and that you live my messages. Pray and seek! I
am praying and interceding for you before God that
you convert; that your life and behavior always be
Christian.
Also today I call you to convert and to more firmly             25/5/1999
believe in God. Children, you seek peace and pray in
different ways, but you have not yet given your hearts
to God for Him to fill them with His love. So, I am
with you to teach you and to bring you closer to the
love of God. If you love God above all else, it will be
easy for you to pray and to open your hearts to Him.
Today I thank you for living and witnessing my                  25/6/1999
messages with your life. Little children, be strong and
pray so that prayer may give you strength and joy.
Only in this way will each of you be mine and I will
lead you on the way of salvation. Little children, pray
and with your life witness my presence here. May each
day be a joyful witness for you of God's love.
Also today I rejoice with you and I call you all to             25/7/1999
prayer with the heart. I call all of you, little children, to
give thanks to God here with me for the graces which
He gives to you through me. I desire for you to
comprehend that I want to realize here, not only a
place of prayer but also a meeting of hearts. I desire
for my, Jesus' and your heart to become one heart of
love and peace. That is why, little children, pray and
rejoice over everything that God does here, despite that
Satan provokes quarrels and unrest. I am with you and
I lead you all on the way of love.
Also today I call you to give glory to God the Creator          25/8/1999
in the colors of nature. He speaks to you also through
the smallest flower about His beauty and the depth of
love with which He has created you. Little children,

129
may prayer flow from your hearts like fresh water
from a spring. May the wheat fields speak to you about
the mercy of God towards every creature. That is why,
renew prayer of thanksgiving for everything He gives
you.
Today again I call you to become carriers of my peace.       25/9/1999
In a special way, now when it is being said that God is
far away, He has truly never been nearer to you. I call
you to renew prayer in your families by reading the
Sacred Scripture and to experience joy in meeting with
God who infinitely loves His creatures.
Do not forget: this is a time of grace; that is why, pray,   25/10/1999
pray, pray!
Also today I call you to prayer. In this time of grace,      25/11/1999
may the cross be a sign-post of love and unity for you
through which true peace comes. That is why, little
children, pray especially at this time that little Jesus,
the Creator of peace, may be born in your hearts. Only
through prayer will you become my apostles of peace
in this world without peace. That is why, pray until
prayer becomes a joy for you.
This is the time of grace. Little children, today in a       25/12/1999
special way with little Jesus, whom I hold in my
embrace, I am giving you the possibility to decide for
peace. Through your 'yes' for peace and your decision
for God, a new possibility for peace is opened. Only in
this way, little children, this century will be for you a
time of peace and well-being. Therefore, put little
newborn Jesus in the first place in your life and He
will lead you on the way of salvation.
I call you, little children, to pray without ceasing. If     25/1/2000
you pray, you are closer to God and He will lead you
on the way of peace and salvation. That is why I call
you today to give peace to others. Only in God is there

130
true peace. Open your hearts and become those who
give a gift of peace and others will discover peace in
you and through you and in this way you will witness
God's peace and love which He gives you.
Wake up from the sleep of unbelief and sin, because          25/2/2000
this is a time of grace which God gives you. Use this
time and seek the grace of healing of your heart from
God, so that you may see God and man with the heart.
Pray in a special way for those who have not come to
know God's love, and witness with your life so that
they also can come to know God and His
immeasurable love.
Pray and make good use of this time, because this is a       25/3/2000
time of grace. I am with you and I intercede for each
one of you before God, for your heart to open to God
and to God's love. Little children, pray without
ceasing, until prayer becomes a joy for you.
Also today I call you to conversion. You are concerned       25/4/2000
too much about material things and little about
spiritual ones. Open your hearts and start again to
work more on your personal conversion. Decide
everyday to dedicate time to God and to prayer until
prayer becomes a joyful meeting with God for you.
Only in this way will your life have meaning and with
joy you will contemplate eternal life.
I rejoice with you and in this time of grace I call you to   25/5/2000
spiritual renewal. Pray, little children, that the Holy
Spirit may come to dwell in you in fullness, so that
you may be able to witness in joy to all those who are
far from faith. Especially, little children, pray for the
gifts of the Holy Spirit so that in the spirit of love,
every day and in each situation, you may be closer to
your fellow-man; and that in wisdom and love you
may overcome every difficulty. I am with you and I

131
intercede for each of you before Jesus.
Today I call you to prayer. The one who prays is not        25/6/2000
afraid of the future. Little children do not forget, I am
with you and I love you all.
Do not forget that you are here on earth on the way to      25/7/2000
eternity and that your home is in Heaven. That is why,
little children, be open to God‟s love and leave egoism
and sin. May your joy be only in discovering God in
daily prayer. That is why, make good use of this time
and pray, pray, pray; and God is near to you in prayer
and through prayer.
I desire to share my joy with you. In my Immaculate         25/8/2000
Heart I feel that there are many of those who have
drawn closer to me and are, in a special way, carrying
the victory of my Immaculate Heart in their hearts by
praying and converting. I desire to thank you and to
inspire you to work even more for God and His
kingdom with love and the power of the Holy Spirit. I
am with you and I bless you with my motherly
blessing.
Today I call you to open yourselves to prayer. May          25/9/2000
prayer become joy for you. Renew prayer in your
families and form prayer groups. In this way, you will
experience joy in prayer and togetherness. 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. I am with you, I carry all of you in my heart and I
bless you with my motherly blessing.
Today I desire to open my motherly heart to you and to      25/10/2000
call you all to pray for my intentions. I desire to renew
prayer with you and to call you to fast which I desire
to offer to my Son Jesus for the coming of a new time
– a time of spring. In this Jubilee year many hearts
have opened to me and the Church is being renewed in

132
the Spirit. I rejoice with you and I thank God for this
gift; and you, little children, I call to pray, pray, pray –
until prayer becomes a joy for you.
Today when Heaven is near to you in a special way, I           25/11/2000
call you to prayer so that through prayer you place
God in the first place. Little children, today I am near
you and I bless each of you with my motherly blessing
so that you have the strength and love for all the
people you meet in your earthly life and that you can
give God‟s love. I rejoice with you and I desire to tell
you that your brother Slavko has been born into
Heaven and intercedes for you.
Today when God granted to me that I can be with you,           25/12/2000
with little Jesus in my arms, I rejoice with you and I
give thanks to God for everything He has done in this
Jubilee year. I thank God especially for all the
vocations of those who said „yes‟ to God completely. I
bless you all with my blessing and the blessing of the
newborn Jesus. I pray for all of you for joy to be born
in your hearts so that in joy you too carry the joy I
have today. In this Child I bring to you the Savior of
your hearts and the One who calls you to the holiness
of life.
Today I call you to renew prayer and fasting with even         25/1/2001
greater enthusiasm until prayer becomes a joy for you.
Little children, the one who prays is not afraid of the
future and the one who fasts is not afraid of evil. Once
again, I repeat to you: only through prayer and fasting
also wars can be stopped – wars of your unbelief and
fear for the future. I am with you and am teaching you
little children: your peace and hope are in God. That is
why draw closer to God and put Him in the first place
in your life.
This is a time of grace. That is why pray, pray, pray          25/2/2001

133
until you comprehend God‟s love for each of you.
Also today I call you to open yourselves to prayer.         25/3/2001
Little children, you live in a time in which God gives
great graces but you do not know how to make good
use of them. You are concerned about everything else,
but the least for the soul and spiritual life. Awaken
from the tired sleep of your soul and say yes to God
with all your strength. Decide for conversion and
holiness. I am with you, little children, and I call you
to perfection of your soul and of everything you do.
Also today, I call you to prayer. Little children, prayer   25/4/2001
works miracles. When you are tired and sick and you
do not know the meaning of your life, take the Rosary
and pray; pray until prayer becomes for you a joyful
meeting with your Savior. I am with you, little
children, and I intercede and pray for you.
At this time of grace, I call you to prayer. Little         25/5/2001
children, you work much but without God‟s blessing.
Bless and seek the wisdom of the Holy Spirit to lead
you at this time so that you may comprehend and live
in the grace of this time. Convert, little children, and
kneel in the silence of your hearts. Put God in the
center of your being so that, in that way, you can
witness in joy the beauty that God continually gives in
your life.
I am with you and I bless you all with my motherly          25/6/2001
blessing. Especially today when God gives you
abundant graces, pray and seek God through me. God
gives you great graces, that is why, little children make
good use of this time of grace and come closer to my
heart so that I can lead you to my Son Jesus.
In this time of grace, I call you to come even closer to    25/7/2001
God through your personal prayer. Make good use of
the time of rest and give your soul and your eyes rest

134
in God. Find peace in nature and you will discover
God the Creator Whom you will be able to give thanks
to for all creatures; then you will find joy in your heart.
Today I call all of you to decide for holiness. May for       25/8/2001
you, little children, always in your thoughts and in
each situation holiness be in the first place, in work
and in speech. In this way, you will also put it into
practice; little by little, step by step, prayer and a
decision for holiness will enter into your family. Be
real with yourselves and do not bind yourselves to
material things but to God. And do not forget, little
children, that your life is as passing as a flower.
Also today I call you to prayer, especially today when        25/9/2001
Satan wants war and hatred. I call you anew, little
children: pray and fast that God may give you peace.
Witness peace to every heart and be carriers of peace
in this world without peace. I am with you and
intercede before God for each of you. And you do not
be afraid because the one who prays is not afraid of
evil and has no hatred in the heart.
Also today I call you to pray from your whole heart           25/10/2001
and to love each other. Little children, you are chosen
to witness peace and joy. If there is no peace, pray and
you will receive it. Through you and your prayer, little
children, peace will begin to flow through the world.
That is why, little children, pray, pray, pray, because
prayer works miracles in human hearts and in the
world. I am with you and I thank God for each of you
who has accepted and lives prayer with seriousness.
In this time of grace, I call you anew to prayer. Little      25/11/2001
children, pray and prepare your hearts for the coming
of the King of Peace, that with His blessing He may
give peace to the whole world. Peacelessness has
begun to reign in hearts and hatred reigns in the world.

135
That is why, you who live my messages be the light
and extended hands to this faithless world that all may
come to know the God of Love. Do not forget, little
children, I am with you and bless you all.
I call you today and encourage you to prayer for peace.      25/12/2001
Especially today I call you, carrying the newborn Jesus
in my arms for you, to unite with Him through prayer
and to become a sign to this peaceless world.
Encourage each other, little children, to prayer and
love. May your faith be an encouragement to others to
believe and to love more. I bless you all and call you to
be closer to my heart and to the heart of little Jesus.
At this time while you are still looking back to the past    25/1/2002
year I call you, little children, to look deeply into your
heart and to decide to be closer to God and to prayer.
Little children, you are still attached to earthly things
and little to spiritual life. May my call today also be an
encouragement to you to decide for God and for daily
conversion. You cannot be converted, little children, if
you do not abandon sins and do not decide for love
towards God and neighbour.
In this time of grace, I call you to become friends of       25/2/2002
Jesus. Pray for peace in your hearts and work for your
personal conversion. Little children, only in this way
will you be able to become witnesses of peace and of
the love of Jesus in the world. Open yourselves to
prayer so that prayer becomes a need for you. Be
converted, little children, and work so that as many
souls as possible may come to know Jesus and His
love. I am close to you and I bless you all.
Today I call you to unite with Jesus in prayer. Open         25/3/2002
your heart to Him and give Him everything that is in it:
joys, sorrows and illnesses. May this be a time of grace
for you. Pray, little children, and may every moment

136
belong to Jesus. I am with you and I intercede for you.
Rejoice with me in this time of spring when all nature       25/4/2002
is awakening and your hearts long for change. Open
yourselves, little children, and pray. Do not forget that
I am with you and I desire to take you all to my Son
that He may give you the gift of sincere love towards
God and everything that is from Him. Open yourselves
to prayer and seek a conversion of your hearts from
God; everything else He sees and provides.
Today I call you to put prayer in the first place in your    25/5/2002
life. Pray and may prayer, little children, be a joy for
you. I am with you and intercede for all of you, and
you, little children, be joyful carriers of my messages.
May your life with me be joy.
Today I pray for you and with you that the Holy Spirit       25/6/2002
may help you and increase your faith, so that you may
accept even more the messages that I am giving you
here in this holy place. Little children, comprehend
that this is a time of grace for each of you; and with
me, little children, you are secure. I desire to lead you
all on the way of holiness. Live my messages and put
into life every word that I am giving you. May they be
precious to you because they come from heaven.
Today I rejoice with your patron saint and call you to       25/7/2002
be open to God‟s will, so that in you and through you,
faith may grow in the people you meet in your
everyday life. Little children, pray until prayer
becomes joy for you. Ask your holy protectors to help
you grow in love towards God.
Also today I am with you in prayer so that God gives         25/8/2002
you an even stronger faith. Little children, your faith is
small and you are not even aware how much, despite
this, you are not ready to seek the gift of faith from
God. That is why I am with you, little children, to help

137
you comprehend my messages and put them into life.
Pray, pray, pray and only in faith and through prayer
your soul will find peace and the world will find joy to
be with God.
Also in this peaceless time, I call you to prayer. Little   25/9/2002
children, pray for peace so that in the world every
person would feel love towards peace. Only when the
soul finds peace in God, it feels content and love will
begin to flow in the world. And in a special way, little
children, you are called to live and witness peace –
peace in your hearts and families – and, through you,
peace will also begin to flow in the world.
Also today I call you to prayer. Little children, believe   25/10/2002
that by simple prayer miracles can be worked. Through
your prayer you open your heart to God and He works
miracles in your life. By looking at the fruits, your
heart fills with joy and gratitude to God for everything
He does in your life and, through you, also to others.
Pray and believe little children, God gives you graces
and you do not see them. Pray and you will see them.
May your day be filled with prayer and thanksgiving
for everything that God gives you.
I call you also today to conversion. Open your heart to     25/11/2002
God, little children, through Holy Confession and
prepare your soul so that little Jesus can be born anew
in your heart. Permit Him to transform you and lead
you on the way of peace and joy. Little children,
decide for prayer. Especially now, in this time of
grace, may your heart yearn for prayer. I am close to
you and intercede before God for all of you.
This is a time of great graces, but also a time of great    25/12/2002
trials for all those who desire to follow the way of
peace. Because of that, little children, again I call you
to pray, pray, pray, not with words but with the heart.

138
Live my messages and be converted. Be conscious of
this gift that God has permitted me to be with you,
especially today when in my arms I have little Jesus -
the King of Peace. I desire to give you peace, and that
you carry it in your hearts and give it to others until
God's peace begins to rule the world.
With this message I call you anew to pray for peace.       25/1/2003
Particularly now when peace is in crisis, you be those
who pray and bear witness to peace. Little children, be
peace in this peaceless world.
Also today I call you to pray and fast for peace. As I     25/2/2003
have already said and now repeat to you, little
children, only with prayer and fasting can wars also be
stopped. Peace is a precious gift from God. Seek, pray
and you will receive it. Speak about peace and carry
peace in your hearts. Nurture it like a flower which is
in need of water, tenderness and light. Be those who
carry peace to others. I am with you and intercede for
all of you.
Also today I call you to pray for peace. Pray with the     25/3/2003
heart, little children, and do not lose hope because God
loves His creatures. He desires to save you, one by
one, through my coming here. I call you to the way of
holiness. Pray, and in prayer you are open to God's
will; in this way, in everything you do, you realize
God's plan in you and through you.
I call you also today to open yourselves to prayer. In     25/4/2003
the foregone time of Lent you have realized how small
you are and how small your faith is. Little children,
decide also today for God, that in you and through you
He may change the hearts of people, and also your
hearts. Be joyful carriers of the risen Jesus in this
peaceless world, which yearns for God and for
everything that is from God. I am with you, little

139
children, and I love you with a special love.
Also today I call you to prayer. Renew your personal         25/5/2003
prayer, and in a special way pray to the Holy Spirit to
help you pray with the heart. I intercede for all of you,
little children, and call all of you to conversion. If you
convert, all those around you will also be renewed and
prayer will be a joy for them.
Also today, I call you with great joy to live my             25/6/2003
messages. I am with you and I thank you for putting
into life what I am saying to you. I call you to renew
my messages even more, with new enthusiasm and
joy. May prayer be your daily practice.
Also today I call you to prayer. Little children, pray       25/7/2003
until prayer becomes a joy for you. Only in this way
each of you will discover peace in the heart and your
soul will be content. You will feel the need to witness
to others the love that you feel in your heart and life. I
am with you and intercede before God for all of you.
 Also today I call you to give thanks to God in your         25/8/2003
heart for all the graces which He gives you, also
through the signs and colors that are in nature. God
wants to draw you closer to Himself and moves you to
give Him glory and thanks. Therefore, little children, I
call you anew to pray, pray, pray and do not forget that
I am with you. I intercede before God for each of you
until your joy in Him is complete.
Also today I call you to come closer to my heart. Only       25/9/2003
in this way, will you comprehend the gift of my
presence here among you. I desire, little children, to
lead you to the heart of my Son Jesus; but you resist
and do not desire to open your hearts to prayer. Again,
little children, I call you not to be deaf but to
comprehend my call, which is salvation for you.
I call you anew to consecrate yourselves to my heart         25/10/2003

140
and the heart of my Son Jesus. I desire, little children,
to lead you all on the way of conversion and holiness.
Only in this way, through you, we can lead all the
more souls on the way of salvation. Do not delay, little
children, but say with all your heart: “I want to help
Jesus and Mary that all the more brothers and sisters
may come to know the way of holiness.” In this way,
you will feel the contentment of being friends of Jesus.
I call you that this time be for you an even greater         25/11/2003
incentive to prayer. In this time, little children, pray
that Jesus be born in all hearts, especially in those who
do not know Him. Be love, joy and peace in this
peaceless world. I am with you and intercede before
God for each of you.
Also today, I bless you all with my Son Jesus in my          25/12/2003
arms and I carry Him, who is the King of Peace, to
you, that He grant you His peace. I am with you and I
love you all, little children.
Also today I call you to pray. Pray, little children, in a   25/1/2004
special way for all those who have not come to know
God‟s love. Pray that their hearts may open and draw
closer to my heart and the Heart of my Son Jesus, so
that we can transform them into people of peace and
love.
Also today, as never up to now, I call you to open your      25/2/2004
hearts to my messages. Little children, be those who
draw souls to God and not those who distance them. I
am with you and love you all with a special love. This
is a time of penance and conversion. From the bottom
of my heart, I call you to be mine with all your heart
and then you will see that your God is great, because
He will give you an abundance of blessings and peace.
Also today, I call you to open yourselves to prayer.         25/3/2004
Especially now, in this time of grace, open your hearts,

141
little children, and express your love to the Crucified.
Only in this way, will you discover peace, and prayer
will begin to flow from your heart into the world. Be
an example, little children, and an incentive for the
good. I am close to you and I love you all.
Also today, I call you to live my messages even more         25/4/2004
strongly in humility and love so that the Holy Spirit
may fill you with His grace and strength. Only in this
way will you be witnesses of peace and forgiveness.
Also today, I urge you to consecrate yourselves to my        25/5/2004
Heart and to the Heart of my Son Jesus. Only in this
way will you be mine more each day and you will
inspire each other all the more to holiness. In this way
joy will rule your hearts and you will be carriers of
peace and love.
Also today, joy is in my heart. I desire to thank you for    25/6/2004
making my plan realizable. Each of you is important,
therefore, little children, pray and rejoice with me for
every heart that has converted and become an
instrument of peace in the world. Prayer groups are
powerful, and through them I can see, little children,
that the Holy Spirit is at work in the world.
I call you anew: be open to my messages. I desire,           25/7/2004
little children, to draw you all closer to my Son Jesus;
therefore, you pray and fast. Especially I call you to
pray for my intentions, so that I can present you to my
Son Jesus; for Him to transform and open your hearts
to love. When you will have love in the heart, peace
will rule in you.
I call you all to conversion of heart. Decide, as in the     25/8/2004
first days of my coming here, for a complete change of
your life. In this way, little children, you will have the
strength to kneel and to open your hearts before God.
God will hear your prayers and answer them. Before

142
God, I intercede for each of you.
Also today, I call you to be love where there is hatred     25/9/2004
and food where there is hunger. Open your hearts, little
children, and let your hands be extended and generous
so that, through you, every creature may thank God the
Creator. Pray, little children, and open your heart to
God‟s love, but you cannot if you do not pray.
Therefore, pray, pray, pray.
This is a time of grace for the family and, therefore, I    25/10/2004
call you to renew prayer. May Jesus be in the heart of
your family. In prayer, learn to love everything that is
holy. Imitate the lives of saints so that they may be an
incentive and teachers on the way of holiness. May
every family become a witness of love in this world
without prayer and peace.
At this time, I call you all to pray for my intentions.     25/11/2004
Especially, little children, pray for those who have not
yet come to know the love of God and do not seek God
the Savior. You, little children, be my extended hands
and by your example draw them closer to my Heart
and the Heart of my Son. God will reward you with
graces and every blessing.
With great joy, also today I carry my Son Jesus in my       25/12/2004
arms to you; He blesses you and calls you to peace.
Pray, little children, and be courageous witnesses of
Good News in every situation. Only in this way will
God bless you and give you everything you ask of Him
in faith. I am with you as long as the Almighty permits
me. I intercede for each of you with great love.
In this time of grace again I call you to prayer. Pray,     25/1/2005
little children, for unity of Christians, that all may be
one heart. Unity will really be among you inasmuch as
you will pray and forgive. Do not forget: love will
conquer only if you pray, and your heart will open.

143
Today I call you to be my extended hands in this world       25/2/2005
that puts God in the last place. You, little children, put
God in the first place in your life. God will bless you
and give you strength to bear witness to Him, the God
of love and peace. I am with you and intercede for all
of you. Little children, do not forget that I love you
with a tender love.
Today I call you to love. Little children, love each         25/3/2005
other with God‟s love. At every moment, in joy and in
sorrow, may love prevail and, in this way, love will
begin to reign in your hearts. The risen Jesus will be
with you and you will be His witnesses. I will rejoice
with you and protect you with my motherly mantle.
Especially, little children, I will watch your daily
conversion with love.
Also today, I call you to renew prayer in your families.     25/4/2005
By prayer and the reading of Sacred Scripture, may the
Holy Spirit, who will renew you, enter into your
families. In this way, you will become teachers of the
faith in your family. By prayer and your love, the
world will set out on a better way and love will begin
to rule in the world.
Anew I call you to live my messages in humility.             25/5/2005
Especially witness them now when we are approaching
the anniversary of my apparitions. Little children, be a
sign to those who are far from God and His love. I am
with you and bless you all with my motherly blessing.
Today I thank you for every sacrifice that you have          25/6/2005
offered for my intentions. I call you, little children, to
be my apostles of peace and love in your families and
in the world. Pray that the Holy Spirit may enlighten
and lead you on the way of holiness. I am with you and
bless you all with my motherly blessing.
Also today, I call you to fill your day with short and       25/7/2005

144
ardent prayers. When you pray, your heart is open and
God loves you with a special love and gives you
special graces. Therefore, make good use of this time
of grace and devote it to God more than ever up to
now. Do novenas of fasting and renunciation so that
Satan be far from you and grace be around you. I am
near you and intercede before God for each of you.
Also today I call you to live my messages. God gave          25/8/2005
you a gift of this time as a time of grace. Therefore,
little children, make good use of every moment and
pray, pray, pray. I bless you all and intercede before
the Most High for each of you.
In love I call you: convert, even though you are far         25/9/2005
from my heart. Do not forget, I am your mother and I
feel pain for each one who is far from my heart; but I
do not leave you alone. I believe you can leave the
way of sin and decide for holiness.
Little children, believe, pray and love, and God will be     25/10/2005
near you. He will give you the gift of all the graces you
seek from Him. I am a gift to you, because, from day
to day, God permits me to be with you and to love
each of you with immeasurable love. Therefore, little
children, in prayer and humility, open your hearts and
be witnesses of my presence.
Also today I call you to pray, pray, pray until prayer       25/11/2005
becomes life for you. Little children, at this time, in a
special way, I pray before God to give you the gift of
faith. Only in faith will you discover the joy of the gift
of life that God has given you. Your heart will be
joyful thinking of eternity. I am with you and love you
with a tender love.
Also today, in my arms I bring you little Jesus, the         25/12/2005
King of Peace, to bless you with His peace. Little
children, in a special way today I call you to be my

145
carriers of peace in this peaceless world. God will
bless you. Little children, do not forget that I am your
mother. I bless you all with a special blessing, with
little Jesus in my arms.
Also today I call you to be carriers of the Gospel in       25/1/2006
your families. Do not forget, little children, to read
Sacred Scripture. Put it in a visible place and witness
with your life that you believe and live the Word of
God. I am close to you with my love and intercede
before my Son for each of you.
In this Lenten time of grace, I call you to open your       25/2/2006
hearts to the gifts that God desires to give you. Do not
be closed, but with prayer and renunciation say „yes‟
to God and He will give to you in abundance. As in
springtime the earth opens to the seed and yields a
hundredfold, so also your heavenly Father will give to
you in abundance. I am with you and love you, little
children, with a tender love.
"Courage, little children! I decided to lead you on the     25/3/2006
way of holiness. Renounce sin and set out on the way
of salvation, the way which my Son has chosen.
Through each of your tribulations and sufferings God
will find the way of joy for you. Therefore, little
children, pray. We are close to you with our love.
Also today I call you to have more trust in me and my       25/4/2006
Son. He has conquered by His death and resurrection
and, through me, calls you to be a part of His joy. You
do not see God, little children, but if you pray you will
feel His nearness. I am with you and intercede before
God for each of you.
Also today I call you to put into practice and to live      25/5/2006
my messages that I am giving you. Decide for
holiness, little children, and think of heaven. Only in
this way, will you have peace in your heart that no one

146
will be able to destroy. Peace is a gift, which God
gives you in prayer. Little children, seek and work
with all your strength for peace to win in your hearts
and in the world.
With great joy in my heart I thank you for all the          25/6/2006
prayers that, in these days, you offered for my
intentions. Know, little children, that you will not
regret it, neither you nor your children. God will
reward you with great graces and you will merit
eternal life. I am near you and thank all those who,
through these years, have accepted my messages, have
poured them into their life and decided for holiness
and peace.
At this time, do not only think of rest for your body       25/7/2006
but, little children, seek time also for the soul. In
silence may the Holy Spirit speak to you and permit
Him to convert and change you. I am with you and
before God I intercede for each of you.
Also today I call you to pray, pray, pray. Only in          25/8/2006
prayer will you be near to me and my Son and you will
see how short this life is. In your heart a desire for
Heaven will be born. Joy will begin to rule in your
heart and prayer will begin to flow like a river. In your
words there will only be thanksgiving to God for
having created you and the desire for holiness will
become a reality for you.
Also today I am with you and call all of you to             25/9/2006
complete conversion. Decide for God, little children,
and you will find in God the peace your heart seeks.
Imitate the lives of saints and may they be an example
for you; and I will inspire you as long as the Almighty
permits me to be with you.
Today the Lord permitted me to tell you again that you      25/10/2006
live in a time of grace. You are not conscious, little

147
children, that God is giving you a great opportunity to
convert and to live in peace and love. You are so blind
and attached to earthly things and think of earthly life.
God sent me to lead you toward eternal life. I, little
children, am not tired, although I see that your hearts
are heavy and tired for everything that is a grace and a
gift.
Also today I call you to pray, pray, pray. Little           25/11/2006
children, when you pray you are close to God and He
gives you the desire for eternity. This is a time when
you can speak more about God and do more for God.
Therefore, little children, do not resist but permit Him
to lead you, to change you and to enter into your life.
Do not forget that you are travellers on the way toward
eternity. Therefore, little children, permit God to lead
you as a shepherd leads his flock.
Also today I bring you the newborn Jesus in my arms.        25/12/2006
He who is the King of Heaven and earth, He is your
peace. Little children, no one can give you peace as He
who is the King of Peace. Therefore, adore Him in
your hearts, choose Him and you will have joy in Him.
He will bless you with His blessing of peace.
Put Sacred Scripture in a visible place in your family      25/1/2007
and read it. In this way, you will come to know prayer
with the heart and your thoughts will be on God. Do
not forget that you are passing like a flower in a field,
which is visible from afar but disappears in a moment.
Little children, leave a sign of goodness and love
wherever you pass and God will bless you with an
abundance of His blessing.
Open your heart to God‟s mercy in this Lenten time.         25/2/2007
The Heavenly Father desires to deliver each of you
from the slavery of sin. Therefore, little children, make
good use of this time and through meeting with God in

148
confession, leave sin and decide for holiness. Do this
out of love for Jesus, who redeemed you all with His
blood, that you may be happy and in peace. Do not
forget, little children: your freedom is your weakness,
therefore follow my messages with seriousness.
I desire to thank you from my heart for your Lenten          25/3/2007
renunciations. I desire to inspire you to continue to live
fasting with an open heart. By fasting and
renunciation, little children, you will be stronger in
faith. In God you will find true peace through daily
prayer. I am with you and I am not tired. I desire to
take you all with me to Heaven, therefore, decide daily
for holiness.
Also today I again call you to conversion. Open your         25/4/2007
hearts. This is a time of grace while I am with you,
make good use of it. Say: 'This is the time for my soul'.
I am with you and love you with immeasurable love.
Pray with me to the Holy Spirit for Him to lead you in       25/5/2007
the search of God‟s will on the way of your holiness.
And you, who are far from prayer, convert and, in the
silence of your heart, seek salvation for your soul and
nurture it with prayer. I bless you all individually with
my motherly blessing.
Also today, with great joy in my heart, I call you to        25/6/2007
conversion. Little children, do not forget that you are
all important in this great plan, which God leads
through Medjugorje. God desires to convert the entire
world and to call it to salvation and to the way towards
Himself, who is the beginning and the end of every
being. In a special way, little children, from the depth
of my heart, I call you all to open yourselves to this
great grace that God gives you through my presence
here. I desire to thank each of you for the sacrifices
and prayers. I am with you and I bless you all.

149
Today, on the day of the Patron of your Parish, I call       25/7/2007
you to imitate the lives of the Saints. May they be, for
you, an example and encouragement to a life of
holiness. May prayer for you be like the air you
breathe in and not a burden. Little children, God will
reveal His love to you and you will experience the joy
that you are my beloved. God will bless you and give
you an abundance of grace.
Also today I call you to conversion. May your life,          25/8/2007
little children, be a reflection of God‟s goodness and
not of hatred and unfaithfulness. Pray, little children,
that prayer may become life for you. In this way, in
your life you will discover the peace and joy which
God gives to those who have an open heart to His love.
And you who are far from God‟s mercy, convert so
that God may not become deaf to your prayers and that
it may not be too late for you. Therefore, in this time
of grace, convert and put God in the first place in your
life.
Also today I call all of you for your hearts to blaze        25/9/2007
with more ardent love for the Crucified, and do not
forget that, out of love for you, He gave His life so that
you may be saved. Little children, meditate and pray
that your heart may be open to God‟s love.
God sent me among you out of love that I may lead            25/10/2007
you towards the way of salvation. Many of you opened
your hearts and accepted my messages, but many have
become lost on this way and have never come to know
the God of love with the fullness of heart. Therefore, I
call you to be love and light where there is darkness
and sin. I am with you and bless you all.
Today, when you celebrate Christ, the King of all that       25/11/2007
is created, I desire for Him to be the King of your
lives. Only through giving, little children, can you

150
comprehend the gift of Jesus´ sacrifice on the Cross for
each of you. Little children, give time to God that He
may transform you and fill you with His grace, so that
you may be a grace for others. For you, little children,
I am a gift of grace and love, which comes from God
for this peaceless world.
With great joy I bring you the King of Peace for Him        25/12/2007
to bless you with His blessing. Adore Him and give
time to the Creator for whom your heart yearns. Do not
forget that you are passers-by on this earth and that
things can give you small joys, while through my Son,
eternal life is given to you. That is why I am with you,
to lead you towards what your heart yearns for.
With the time of Lent, you are approaching a time of        25/1/2008
grace. Your heart is like ploughed soil and it is ready
to receive the fruit which will grow into what is good.
You, little children, are free to choose good or evil.
Therefore, I call you to pray and fast. Plant joy and the
fruit of joy will grow in your hearts for your good, and
others will see it and receive it through your life.
Renounce sin and choose eternal life. I am with you
and intercede for you before my Son.
In this time of grace, I call you anew to prayer and        25/2/2008
renunciation. May your day be interwoven with little
ardent prayers for all those who have not come to
know God's love.
I call you to work on your personal conversion. You         25/3/2008
are still far from meeting with God in your heart.
Therefore, spend all the more time in prayer and
Adoration of Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament of
the Altar, for Him to change you and to put into your
hearts a living faith and a desire for eternal life.
Everything is passing, little children, only God is not
passing. I am with you and I encourage you with love.

151
Also today, I call all of you to grow in God's love as a    25/4/2008
flower which feels the warm rays of spring. In this
way, also you, little children, grow in God's love and
carry it to all those who are far from God. Seek God's
will and do good to those whom God has put on your
way, and be light and joy.
In this time of grace, when God has permitted me to be      25/5/2008
with you, little children, I call you anew to conversion.
Work on the salvation of the world in a special way
while I am with you. God is merciful and gives special
graces, therefore, seek them through prayer. I am with
you and do not leave you alone.
Also today, with great joy in my heart, I call you to       25/6/2008
follow me and to listen to my messages. Be joyful
carriers of peace and love in this peaceless world. I am
with you and I bless you all with my Son Jesus, the
King of Peace.
At this time when you are thinking of physical rest, I      25/7/2008
call you to conversion. Pray and work so that your
heart yearns for God the Creator who is the true rest of
your soul and your body. May He reveal His face to
you and may He give you His peace. I am with you
and intercede before God for each of you.
Also today I call you to personal conversion. You be        25/8/2008
those who will convert and, with your life, will
witness, love, forgive and bring the joy of the Risen
One into this world, where my Son died and where
people do not feel a need to seek Him and to discover
Him in their lives. You adore Him, and may your hope
be hope to those hearts who do not have Jesus.
May your life, anew, be a decision for peace. Be joyful     25/9/2008
carriers of peace and do not forget that you live in a
time of grace, in which God gives you great graces
through my presence. Do not close yourselves, little

152
children, but make good use of this time and seek the
gift of peace and love for your life so that you may
become witnesses to others. I bless you with my
motherly blessing.
In a special way I call you all to pray for my intentions   25/10/2008
so that, through your prayers, you may stop Satan's
plan over this world, which is further from God every
day, and which puts itself in the place of God and is
destroying everything that is beautiful and good in the
souls of each of you. Therefore, little children, arm
yourselves with prayer and fasting so that you may be
conscious of how much God loves you and may carry
out God's will.
Also today I call you, in this time of grace, to pray for   25/11/2008
little Jesus to be born in your heart. May He, who is
peace itself, give peace to the entire world through
you. Therefore, little children, pray without ceasing for
this turbulent world without hope, so that you may
become witnesses of peace for all. May hope begin to
flow through your hearts as a river of grace.
You are running, working, gathering - but without           25/12/2008
blessing. You are not praying! Today I call you to stop
in front of the manger and to meditate on Jesus, Whom
I give to you today also, to bless you and to help you
to comprehend that, without Him, you have no future.
Therefore, little children, surrender your lives into the
hands of Jesus, for Him to lead you and protect you
from every evil.
Also today I call you to prayer. May prayer be for you      25/1/2009
like the seed that you will put in my heart, which I will
give over to my Son Jesus for you, for the salvation of
your souls. I desire, little children, for each of you to
fall in love with eternal life which is your future, and
for all worldly things to be a help for you to draw you

153
closer to God the Creator. I am with you for this long
because you are on the wrong path. Only with my
help, little children, you will open your eyes. There are
many of those who, by living my messages,
comprehend that they are on the way of holiness
towards eternity.
In this time of renunciation, prayer and penance, I call    25/2/2009
you anew: go and confess your sins so that grace may
open your hearts, and permit it to change you. Convert
little children, open yourselves to God and to His plan
for each of you.
In this time of spring, when everything is awakening        25/3/2009
from the winter sleep, you also awaken your souls with
prayer so that they may be ready to receive the light of
the risen Jesus. Little children, may He draw you
closer to His Heart so that you may become open to
eternal life. I pray for you and intercede before the
Most High for your sincere conversion.
Today I call you all to pray for peace and to witness it    25/4/2009
in your families so that peace may become the highest
treasure on this peaceless earth. I am your Queen of
Peace and your mother. I desire to lead you on the way
of peace, which comes only from God. Therefore,
pray, pray, pray.
Rejoice with me, convert in joy and give thanks to God      25/5/2009
for the gift of my presence among you. Pray that, in
your hearts, God may be in the center of your life and
with your life witness, little children, so that every
creature may feel God‟s love. Be my extended hands
for every creature, so that it may draw closer to the
God of love. I bless you with my motherly blessing.
May this time be a time of prayer for you.                  25/7/2009
Today I call you anew to conversion. Little children,       25/8/2009
you are not holy enough and you do not radiate

154
holiness to others, therefore pray, pray, pray and work
on your personal conversion, so that you may be a sign
of God's love to others. I am with you and am leading
you towards eternity, for which every heart must
yearn.
With joy, persistently work on your conversion. Offer     25/9/2009
all your joys and sorrows to my Immaculate Heart that
I may lead you all to my most beloved Son, so that you
may find joy in His Heart. I am with you to instruct
you and to lead you towards eternity.
Also today I bring you my blessing, I bless you all and   25/10/2009
I call you to grow on this way, which God has begun
through me for your salvation. Pray, fast and joyfully
witness your faith, little children, and may your heart
always be filled with prayer.
In this time of grace I call you all to renew prayer in   25/11/2009
your families. Prepare yourselves with joy for the
coming of Jesus. Little children, may your hearts be
pure and pleasing, so that love and warmth may flow
through you into every heart that is far from His love.
Little children, be my extended hands, hands of love
for all those who have become lost, who have no more
faith and hope.
On this joyful day, I bring all of you before my Son,     25/12/2009
the King of Peace, that He may give you His peace and
blessing. Little children, in love share that peace and
blessing with others.

Creed                                              Bible

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty,         Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our
Creator of heaven and earth, and of all things     God is one LORD:
visible and invisible.
                                                   Isaiah 44:24 Thus saith the LORD, thy
                                                   redeemer, and he that formed thee from the
                                                   womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things;
                                                   that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that
                                                   spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;

                                                   Psalms 90:2 Before the mountains were brought
                                                   forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and
                                                   the world, even from everlasting to everlasting,
                                                   thou art God.

                                                   John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship
                                                   him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

                                                   Jeremiah 23:24 Can any hide himself in secret
                                                   places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD.
                                                   Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.

                                                   1 Corinthians 8:6 But to us there is but one God,
                                                   the Father, of whom are all things, and we in
                                                   him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all
                                                   things, and we by him.

And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only begotten   John 14:9-10 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been
Son of God, begotten of the Father before all      so long time with you, and yet hast thou not
ages. Light of Light, true God of true God,        known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath
begotten, not created, of one essence with the     seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew
Father, through Whom all things were created.      us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the
                                                   Father, and the Father in me? the words that I
                                                   speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the
                                                   Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

                                                   John 10:30 I and my Father are one.

                                                   John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them,
                                                   saying, I am the light of the world: he that
                                                   followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but
                                                   shall have the light of life.

                                                   Colossians 1:15-17 Who is the image of the
                                                   invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
                                                   For by him were all things created, that are in
                                                   heaven, and that are in earth, visible and
                                                   invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions,
                                                   or principalities, or powers: all things were
                                                   created by him, and for him: And he is before all
                                                   things, and by him all things consist.

                                               John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time;
                                               the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of
                                               the Father, he has declared him.

Who for us men and for our salvation came      John 1:1-3, 14 In the beginning was the Word,
down from heaven,                              and the Word was with God, and the Word was
                                               God. The same was in the beginning with God.
                                               All things were made by him; and without him
                                               was not any thing made that was made. . . .And
                                               the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,
                                               (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the
                                               only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and
                                               truth.

                                               John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to
                                               heaven, but he that came down from heaven,
                                               even the Son of man which is in heaven.

                                               1 Timothy 1:15 This is a faithful saying, and
                                               worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came
                                               into the world to save sinners; of whom I am
                                               chief.
                                               Matthew 1:18-23 Now the birth of Jesus Christ
and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the
                                               was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was
Virgin Mary, and became man.
                                               espoused to Joseph, before they came together,
                                               she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
                                               Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and
                                               not willing to make her a publick example, was
                                               minded to put her away privily. But while he
                                               thought on these things, behold, the angel of the
                                               Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying,
                                               Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto
                                               thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived
                                               in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring
                                               forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS:
                                               for he shall save his people from their sins. Now
                                               all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which
                                               was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
                                               Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall
                                               bring forth a son, and they shall call his name
                                               Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with
                                               us. (ALSO Luke 1:26-35)

Crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, He      Mark 15:15 And so Pilate, willing to content the
suffered and was buried.                       people, released Barabbas unto them, and
                                               delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to
                                               be crucified.

                                               Romans 5:8-9 But God commendeth his love
                                               toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners,
                                               Christ died for us. Much more then, being now
                                               justified by his blood, we shall be saved from
                                               wrath through him.

                                               1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in
157
                                                   the light, we have fellowship one with another,
                                                   and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth
                                                   us from all sin.
                                                   1 Corinthians 15:1-6 Moreover, brethren, I
And the third day He rose again according to the

Scriptures.
                                                   unto you, which also ye have received, and
                                                   wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if
                                                   ye keep in memory what I preached unto you,
                                                   unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered
                                                   unto you first of all that which I also received,
                                                   how that Christ died for our sins according to
                                                   the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that
                                                   he rose again the third day according to the
                                                   scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then
                                                   of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above
                                                   five hundred brethren at once; of whom the
                                                   greater part remain unto this present, but some
                                                   are fallen asleep.
                                                   Acts 1:9-11 And when he had spoken these
And ascended into heaven,
                                                   things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and
                                                   a cloud received him out of their sight. And
                                                   while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he
                                                   went up, behold, two men stood by them in
                                                   white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of
                                                   Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven?
                                                   this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into
                                                   heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have

And He shall come again with glory to judge the    2 Timothy 4:1 I charge thee therefore before
living and the dead;                               God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge
                                                   the quick and the dead at his appearing and his
                                                   kingdom;

                                                   execute judgment also, because he is the Son of
                                                   man. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming,
                                                   in the which all that are in the graves shall hear
                                                   his voice, And shall come forth; they that have
                                                   done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they
                                                   that have done evil, unto the resurrection of
                                                   damnation.

                                                   John 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth
                                                   not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the
                                                   word that I have spoken, the same shall judge
                                                   him in the last day.

                                                   John 6:40 And this is the will of him that sent
                                                   me, that every one which seeth the Son, and
                                                   believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and
158
                                                  I will raise him up at the last day.



Whose Kingdom shall have no end.                  Luke 1:33 And he shall reign over the house of
                                                  Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be
                                                  no end.

And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the   Job 33:4 The Spirit of God hath made me, and
Giver of Life, Who proceeds from the Father,      the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.

                                                  John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come,
                                                  whom I will send unto you from the Father, even

                                                  Father, he shall testify of me:

                                                  shall give you another Comforter, that he may
                                                  abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth;
                                                  whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth
                                                  him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him;
                                                  for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

Who together with the Father and the Son is       Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all
worshipped and glorified;                         nations, baptizing them in the name
                                                  [SINGULAR] of the Father, and of the Son, and
                                                  of the Holy Ghost:

Who spoke through the prophets.                   2 Peter 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old
                                                  time by the will of man: but holy men of God
                                                  spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

I believe in one, holy, catholic, and apostolic   Ephesians 2:19-20, 3:21, 4:4-6 Now therefore ye
Church.                                           are no more strangers and foreigners, but
                                                  fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the
                                                  household of God; And are built upon the
                                                  foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus
                                                  Christ himself being the chief corner stone;. .
                                                  .Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus
                                                  throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. .
                                                  . .There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye
                                                  are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord,
                                                  one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of
                                                  all, who is above all, and through all, and in you
                                                  all.

I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of    1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all
sins.                                             baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or
                                                  Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have
                                                  been all made to drink into one Spirit.

                                                  Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent,
                                                  and be baptized every one of you in the name of
                                                  Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye

159
                                                    shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

I expect the resurrection of the dead.              John 5:28-29 Marvel not at this: for the hour is
                                                    coming, in the which all that are in the graves
                                                    shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they
                                                    that have done good, unto the resurrection of
                                                    life; and they that have done evil, unto the
                                                    resurrection of damnation.

                                                    John 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth
                                                    not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the
                                                    word that I have spoken, the same shall judge
                                                    him in the last day.

                                                    John 6:40 And this is the will of him that sent
                                                    me, that every one which seeth the Son, and
                                                    believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and
                                                    I will raise him up at the last day.

And the life of the age to come. Amen.              2 Peter 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his
                                                    promise, look for new heavens and a new earth,
                                                    wherein dwelleth righteousness.

                                                    Luke 18:30 Who shall not receive manifold
                                                    more in this present time, and in the world to
                                                    come life everlasting.


(2) The Our Father and the Bible

Matthew 6:10-14 This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your
name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily
bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one. For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly
Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive
your sins.

(3) The Hail Mary and the Bible.
Luke 1:28 And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee:
blessed art thou among women.

Look at what Elizabeth says in: Luke 1:42 And she cried out with a loud voice, and said: “Blessed
art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.” Isn‟t Jesus the fruit of Mary‟s womb?
And this prayer climaxes at the name of Jesus.

Now Protestants will most likely say that Mary is in Heaven and thus is Holy. But what about her
being called the Mother of God. While there is great misunderstanding by some about the phrase
"Mother of God," it just means that Mary gave birth to Jesus who is in fact God. Therefore, Mary is
the Mother of God. It does not mean that Mary is the creator of the Trinity or anything strange.
Luke 1:43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
There are many parallels showing that Mary is the new Ark of the Covenant, which we won‟t get
into right now. But, what Elizabeth says here about Mary and what David says about the Ark are
strikingly similar.
Listen to David in 2 Samuel 6:9 And David was afraid of the LORD that day; and he said, "How
can the ark of the LORD come to me?". "The LORD" here in Hebrew means Yahweh. So, if you
160
did a close investigation you would see that Elizabeth is really saying "How is it that the mother of
Yahweh" can come to me.

There is also a part of the "Hail Mary" which asks Mary to pray for us. “Holy Mary, Mother of
God. Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
James 5:16 says that "The prayer of a righteous man has great power in its effects." Well, who is
more righteous than Mary? None but God.

(4) The Glory Be and the Bible.
Ephesians 3:21 21 glory be to him from generation to generation in the Church and in Christ Jesus
for ever and ever. Amen.
Ecclesiastes 1:4 A generation goes, a generation comes, yet the earth stands firm for ever.
1 Timothy 1:17 17 To the eternal King, the undying, invisible and only God, be honour and glory for
ever and ever. Amen.

(5) The Hail Holy Queen and the Bible.

Hail Holy Queen                                     See Revelations 12

                                                    1. Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a
                                                    woman, robed with the sun, standing on the
                                                    moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.

                                                    5. The woman was delivered of a boy, the son
                                                    who was to rule all the nations with an iron
                                                    sceptre, and the child was taken straight up to
                                                    God and to his throne,
Mother of Mercy                                     Luke 1:54-55

                                                    He has come to the help of Israel his servant,
                                                    mindful of his faithful love - according to the
                                                    promise he made to our ancestors -- of his mercy
                                                    to Abraham and to his descendants for ever.
Hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope
To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve Genesis 3:24

                                                    He banished the man, and in front of the garden
                                                    of Eden he posted the great winged creatures
                                                    and the fiery flashing sword, to guard the way to
                                                    the tree of life.
To we do we send up our sighs mourning and
weeping in this valley of tears
Turn then most gracious advocate thine eyes of
mercy towards us
And after this our exile, show us the blessed
fruit of thy womb Jesus.
Pray for us oh Holy Mother of God that we may
be made worthy of the promises of Christ
