I like to read the messages that come out of Medugorje each month; they are always beautiful and touch my heart. I believe Mother Mary is really appearing there and has been for many years. Everyone that I have met who has been to Medjugorje has nothing but wonderful things to say about their visit there. My mom went when I was in my early twenties and came back on fire for God. She said the Holy Spirit is doing wonderful work there. One of my rosaries came from Medjugorje and it's my favorite pair. The Church has not ruled on Medjugorje yet and pilgrims are allowed to visit there, so I will continue to read the messages and take these beautiful words to heart unless the Church forbids it. A lady I know went to hear Ivan, one of the visionaries, speak in Massachusetts this past Sunday. The gist of the talk was:
-Pray every day
-Attend Mass as often as possible
-Read your Bible
-Confess your sins
-Spend more time with your family, especially your children. Teach them to pray and teach them about God. Live your faith so that your children may see by example. Our Lady is concerned about the young people in our world, we are failing to teach them how to live holy lives.
-Meditate on the Passion of Christ
