“This is a time of grace.” October 25, 2018 – The Blessed Mother at Medjugorje
“A period of peace will be granted to the world .” Our Lady of Fatima, 1917.
Is it possible that Our Lady’s most recent message for the world offers a clue as to how Fatima and Medjugorje connect – a sign of prophecy revealed? Remember, Our Lady said that Medjugorje is the “continuation and fulfilment of Fatima.” The importance of this message cannot be overestimated.
On August 25, 1981, the Blessed Mother said: “Dear Children! Today also I invite you to prayer, now as never before when my plan has begun to be realized. Satan is strong and wants to sweep away plans of 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 fast still more firmly. I invite you to realize through the secrets I began in Fatima may be fulfilled. I call you, dear children, to grasp the importance 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 will be fully realized. Thank you for having responded to my call. ”
Powerful words from Our Lady indeed. These words are the clearest message that Medjugorje and Fatima are connected and Our Lady’s most recent message about “a time of grace”, reminds us why this connection is so important.
In the “Second Secret” of Fatima, Our Lady said: To prevent this (Russia’s errors), I shall come to ask for the Consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.
The key phrase is “A period of peace will be “GRANTED” to the world.” The exact wording of the Fatima prophecy is very important.
The message of “peace” are central themes at both Medjugorje and Fatima.
At Medjugorje, Our Lady came as the Queen of Peace in June of 1981. And importantly, her first message to the world was “Peace, peace, and only peace; Peace must reign between God and man, and among all people.”
To accept that Our Lady’s Fatima prophecy has been fulfilled, two events must have taken place:
- Russia’s consecration to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart. The proper consecration of Russia has been a raging debate in Catholic circles for many years. But according to the Catholic Church and Fatima “seer” Sr. Lucia, the consecration was correctly done on March 24, 1984. And Pope John Paul II’s action towards Russia was “accepted in Heaven”. The argument from those who deny the consecration of Russia, quite frankly, have their head in the sand as they ignore the historic Chrisitan revival taking place in Russia right now. Russia has converted. The spiritual revival in Russia is the news story of our times yet our Mainstream media seeks only to demonize Russia and they report on Russia’s emerging Christian culture only in menacing and cynical ways.
- A “period of peace will be granted to the world” if the consecration of Russia takes place. Of course, with a quick read of that statement, virtually nobody would argue that the world has been in any sort of period of peace. War, abortion, genocide and terrorism, have caused untold human suffering for decades. Clearly, there is no “world peace”.
So if there is no peace in the world, one should argue that the consecration of Russia was NOT done properly.
But let’s re-read the Fatima prophecy more carefully as we keep in mind the Queen of Peace of Medjugorje. Only in this way can we make sense of Fatima’s prophecy. At Fatima, Our Lady said: “The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”
So what is meant by this, particularly the words “a period of peace will be granted to the world” within the context of today’s modern world?
Let’s begin with the understanding that the Queen of Peace came to Medjugorje in 1981. Our Lady has said that God allowed her to come to this world. In other words, God granted to the world The Queen of Peace. Our Lady came to this world to plead for Her children to seek peace in the heart and to put God in the first place. She implores us to convert – to accept her Son – to pray and to walk on the path towards salvation and eternal paradise.
Her time here on earth is a gift granted to the world by God and we see the fruits of this gift in so many ways. Today is this world, because of Medjugorje we see so many people converted, so many souls saved.
God “granted” to the world the Blessed Mother. Our Lady comes as the Queen of Peace with the message of peace. She is the PEACE that God granted to the world. Medjugorje is the “Peace granted to the world.”
On October 25, 2018 Our Lady said: “This is a time of grace.” These words could not be more clear. Our Lady is telling the world that we are now living in the “period of peace.”
Lastly, keep in mind the phrase a “period of peace”. These words imply that this gift granted to the world will be finite – this time of grace will end. And this is why Our Lady constantly implores the world to convert. She implores us all to convert onto God’s path towards eternal life as soon as possible.
October 25, 2018 message from the Blessed Mother: Dear children! You have the great grace of being called to a new life through the messages I give you. Little children, this is a time of grace, time and a call to conversion for you and for future generations.
Therefore I invite you, children, pray more and open your heart to my Son Jesus. I am with you, I love you all and I bless you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for responding to my call.
