One of the strongest arguments for support of the work of Medjugorje is the results: lives have been changed, again and again. People return to the sacraments. Conversions that last a lifetime have begun there. God’s love is felt in a deep way, and Mary’s presence is warmly felt. The Lord Himself teaches, “a bad tree cannot bear good fruit, and a good tree cannot bear bad fruit,” and “whoever is not against me is for me.” I think by these simple guides, apart from many other good reasons, we can say that God is working in Medjugorje.
If you will be travelling that day for the holiday weekend, I pray the Lord bless and guide your travels. Don’t forget to make time for Mass and for prayer!
In a little over a month will be our patronal feast. Since October 1st is on a Tuesday this year, the feast will be moved forward to Sunday the 29th of September to allow the whole parish to celebrate. Please stay tuned for more information about how we will celebrate together the life and message of our parish’s great saint, the “petite” Thérèse.
Saint Thérèse, Little Flower, help us to be little so that the Lord can always hold us in His arms.
