This time, 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, in Medjugorje.
With a motherly heart Mary is here to guide us. She says she wants to bring every person on earth back to heaven with her. Her love for us is what attracts us, but at times Our Lady also must remind her children that Satan exists and because of this she bares the difficult responsibility to also warn her children of the eternal darkness. She implores us to open our eyes.
In a Message she gave to visionary Miryana on November 2, 2006, she warns us of the delusions that satan uses as traps to harvest souls. She says: “Dear children, My coming to you, my children, is God’s love. God is sending me to warn you and to show you the right way.
Do not shut your eyes before the truth, my children. Your time is a short time. Do not permit delusions to begin to rule over you. The way on which I desire to lead you is the way of peace and love. This is the way which leads to my Son, your God. Give me your hearts that I may put my Son in them and make my apostles of you. I want to make you apostles of peace and love. Thank
Then on November 2, 2006 the Blessed Mother again gave a strong warning but on this occasion her warning included a rare call to action to repent.
“Dear children; Anew, in a motherly way, I am calling you not to be of a hard heart. Do not shut your eyes to the warnings which the Heavenly Father sends to you out of love.
Do you love Him above all else? Do you repent for having often forgotten that the Heavenly Father, out of His great love, sent His Son to redeem us by the Cross? Do you repent for not having accepted the message? My children, do not resist the love of my Son.
Do not resist hope and peace. Along with your prayers and fasting, by His Cross, my Son will cast away the darkness that wants to surround you and come to rule over you.
He will give you the strength for a new life. Living it according to my Son, you will be a blessing and a hope to all those sinners who wander in the darkness of sin. My children, keep vigil. I, as a mother, am keeping vigil with you. I am especially praying and watching over those whom my Son called to be light-bearers and carriers of hope for you – for your shepherds. Thank you.
