This time in Medjugorje, which has lasted since June 24, 1981, is characterized by an event that is unique in the history of humanity, the presence of Our Lady among us on earth. Our Lady invites us, like never before, to take his only-begotten Son Jesus Christ as an example and to always follow in his footsteps and teachings.
She is here to guide us on to the path to eternity in Heaven, which is our destiny. But to stay on this path, the Holy Mother persistently warns us about the real presence of Satan here on earth
who is constantly setting traps. In a special message to the visionaries on March 14, 1985, the Blessed Mother revealed a reality that people were not aware of up until this time. She said that “people who are in darkness come into your homes daily.”
In her messsage she said: ““Dear children! In your life you have all experienced light and darkness. God grants to every person to recognize good and evil. I am calling you to the light which you should carry to all the people who are in darkness.
People who are in darkness, daily come into your homes. Dear children, give them the light! Thank you for having responded to my call.” Visionary Mirjana has spoken often of the real influence of the devil and how he enters into peoples homes. The visionary understands this well because the Blessed Mother has directly made known to her of this reality.
In an interview conducted in the early years of the apparitions on January 10, 1983, Miryana was asked a question about demonic activity and how to protect your home and family . Question: The behavior of people when they are under the influence of the devil, is the devil in them – are they possessed?
Mirjana Dragicevic, answered: : “No, no. The devil is not in them, but they’re under the influence of the devil, although he enters into some of them. And to prevent this, at least to some extent, the Madonna said we need communal prayer, family prayer. She stressed the need for family prayer most of all. Also, every family should have at least one sacred object in the house. Our Lady has spoken of value of blessed objects in the home. She implores us to put on the armor.”
On July 18, 1985 Our Lady announced again that satan is active and emphasized the need for sacred objects in our homes. She said: “Dear children! Today I call you to place more blessed objects in your homes and that everyone put some blessed objects on their person. Bless all the objects and thus Satan will attack you less because you will have armor against him.
Then, on September 12, 1985, the Holy Mother revealed that she had a wish. She said : “Dear children, I wish to tell you that the cross should be central these days. Pray especially before the cross from which great graces are coming. Now in your homes make a special consecration to the cross. Promise that you will neither offend Jesus nor abuse the cross. I call on you to read the Bible every day in your homes and let it be in a visible place so as always to encourage you to read it and to pray. Thank you for having responded to my call. ” Our Lady is calling. God Bless. Ave Maria.
