After the disturbances comes Peace, after the Cross there is the Resurrection!
The Blessed Virgin Mary reminds us: after the Cross there is the Resurrection! Here are some of his messages given to Medjugorje on this:
“Dear children, I desire that you all feel the Resurrection in yourself, that all of you may feel the freedom in the face of the problems and difficulties that often bind you. Dear children, you must open your hearts completely to praise God in the midst of difficulties and be able to carry your crosses with love. Jesus brought the Cross to the whole world, and He was full of peace and love, He was resurrected and ascended into Heaven. For this, dear children, you too, bring your crosses with love!
The Cross is salvation, and after the Cross, there is the Resurrection ! “Message of March 20, 1990
“Dear children! I invite you to decide again to love God above all. In this time when, because of the consumerist spirit, we forget what it means to love and appreciate true values, I invite you again, little children, to put God first in your life. Satan does not attract you with material things but, little children, decide for God that is freedom and love. Choose life and not the death of the soul. Little children, in this time when you meditate on the passion and death of Jesus, I invite you to decide for the life that is resurrected with the resurrection and that your life is renewed today through the conversion that will lead you to eternal life. Thank you for answering my call! “
Message of 25 March 1996
“Dear children! Also today I am with you in a special way, meditating and living in my heart the passion of Jesus. Little children, open your hearts and give me all that is in them: the joys, the sorrows and every sorrow even the most small, so that I can offer them to Jesus, so that He with his incommensurable love burns and transforms your sorrows into the joy of his resurrection. That’s why now I invite you, little children, in a special way to open your hearts to prayer, so that through it you may become friends of Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call! “
Message of February 25, 1999
“Do not look at the weight of the Cross, for it is salvation. Help the people around you to consider the Cross not as a burden, but as salvation . After the Cross there is the Resurrection ! “
Message of 9 November 1989
“Dear children, I have chosen you, my apostles, so that everyone may bring something beautiful into you. You can help me so that the love for which my Son died, but then also risen, will win again . Therefore I invite you, my apostles, to try to see in every creature of God, in all my children, something good and try to understand them. My children, all of you are brothers and sisters through the same Holy Spirit. You, filled with love towards my Son, can tell all those who have not known this love what you know. You have known the love of my Son, you have understood his resurrection, you turn your eyes joyfully towards him. My maternal desire is that all my children be united in love for Jesus. Therefore I invite you, my apostles, to live joyfully the Eucharist because, in the Eucharist, my Son always gives himself to you again and, with his example shows you love and sacrifice towards others. Thank you”.
Message of 2 April 2015
“Dear children, I am always with you, because my Son has entrusted you to me.And you, my children, you need me, you look for me, come to me and make my Motherly Heart rejoice. I have and will always have love for you, for you who suffer and who offer your pains and your sufferings to my Son and to me. My love seeks the love of all my children and my children seek my love. Through love, Jesus seeks the communion between Heaven and earth, between Heavenly Father and you, my children, his Church. Therefore we must pray a lot, pray and love the Church to which you belong. Now the Church suffers and needs apostles who, loving communion, bearing witness and giving, show the ways of God. They need apostles who, by living the Eucharist with the heart, perform great works. He needs you, my apostles of love. My children, the Church has been persecuted and betrayed since its beginnings, but it has grown day by day. It is indestructible, because my Son has given it a heart: the Eucharist. The light of his resurrection has shone and will shine on her . So do not be afraid! Pray for your pastors, so that they may have the strength and the love to be bridges of salvation. Thank you!”
