Medjugorje: ..Powerful video from Fr. Leon. “





“The Blessed Mother asked me: ‘Are you willing to suffer?” ..Then She showed me the future. She said a time is coming when almost every Catholic will be ashamed of the words of Jesus. She said very few Catholic will remain faithful, very few. And those who do will be persecuted terribly by other Catholics. Then she said. ‘do not go looking for me, I will come to you when you are dying.” Fr. Leon… Fr. Leon is the Chaplain for English Speaking pilgrims in Medjugorje

Comments fro Fr. Leon about Medjugorje: THE LIGHT FAR OUTWEIGHS THE SHADOWS

So, what is the good and the bad? Fr. Leon has seen both. Quoting Archbishop Hoser, who went to Medjugorje as Papal Envoy in the spring of 2017, and has now been assigned as Special Apostolic Visitor to the Parish of Medjugorje, he said, “’Medjugorje is full of light. It has some shadows. But the light far outweighs the shadows.’

“I myself have experienced what I call the little signs. People talk about the miracle of the sun, and rosaries turned into gold, or the intense smell of roses. I have experienced all three of these myself, but I don’t make a fuss about them, and I discourage people from latching onto these little signs as though they are an end in themselves. The big signs in Medjugorje are the sacraments – Confession and the Eucharist – because it’s all about Jesus. If we’re not here for Jesus, then we’re wasting our time.”

Regarding confession, Fr. Leon remarked on the number of people who return to the confessional after 20, 30, 40 and even 60 years away. In addition, he spoke of the vast number of priests and religious who attribute their vocations to Medjugorje, and the people who make dramatic commitments to change. Catholics divorced and remarried without the benefit of an annulment, for example, or those in same-sex relationships who “have come here and renounced their past life and set out to follow Jesus and to live according to his commandments, and to live fully reconciled with their God and Holy mother Church.”

Fr. Leon also pointed to the quality of adoration one finds in Medjugorje. “Adoration really is the heart of Medjugorje,” he said. “ I remember, there was an African priest sitting next to me during adoration, and there were 10,000 people kneeling outside and you could have heard a pin drop. He turned to me and said, ‘Now I believe something is going on in Medjugorje.’

“And I think actually that he’s right. There’s something going on here.”

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading Mystic Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Mystic Post’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

High quality journalism is essential intellectual nourishment. The generosity of providing such a service without a paywall deserves recognition and support
