Novena to the Queen of Peace of Medjugorje – third day June 18, 2019

source la Luce di Maria

From the first appearance onwards, the seers began to show up, every day, at the same time, in the same place and were never disappointed. 
Although still uncertain and incredulous, about what was happening to them, they hoped to see the Virgin Mary again.

And each time they prayed, waiting for her to appear, while their neighbors began to learn about that extraordinary event. 
The first dialogues were almost the following: 
Vicka said to her: “If you are the Madonna, stay with us, if you are not, go away!” And she remained. 
Mirjana asked who she was, to confirm the vision. She replied: “I am the Blessed Virgin Mary”. “Peace must reign between God and men and among men!”

Novena to the Queen of Peace of Medjugorje – third day

In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen

Prayer to the Queen of Peace: 
Mother of God and our Mother Mary, Queen of Peace! You have come among us to guide us to God. For him, through us, impose grace so that, on your example, we too can not only say: ” Let it be of me according to your Word “, but also put it into practice. In your hands, we put our hands, so that, through our miseries and difficulties, he can accompany us to him. For Christ our Lord. Amen.

The recitation of the Veni Creator Spiritus and the Glorious Mysteries follows.

“Dear children! Today, I thank you for all the sacrifices you have offered me these days. Children, I invite you to open yourselves to me and to decide for conversion. Your hearts, children, are not completely open to me, for this reason I call you again to open yourselves to prayer, so that the Holy Spirit may help you in prayer, so that your hearts may become of flesh and not of stone. Little children, thank you for having responded to my call and for having decided to walk with me towards holiness “(Message of June 25, 1996).

The Litanies to the Virgin Mary follow.

Final prayer: Thank you, Lord, for your love, thank you for the invitation to stay in you to bear much fruit. Thank you, because you have chosen this parish in a special way , giving it your Mother, the Queen of Peace , who from this place invites the world to peace and reconciliation and conversion, through a renewed fasting and prayer.

Thank you for opening every heart that has been able to welcome you and has accepted to be its visible sign, for all the people who come here. 
Today, we pray you, Lord, so that you make this parish an even more visible sign of the Kingdom of God and help the parishioners to be joyful and holy fruits of the presence of Our Lady. Amen.
