“Dear children! All of this time in which God in a special way permits me to be with you, I desire to lead you on the way that leads to Jesus and to your salvation. My little children, you can find salvation only in God and therefore, especially on this day of grace with little Jesus in my arms, I call you to permit Jesus to be born in your hearts.

Latest Special Medjugorje Message, January 2, 2010 – Our Lady’s Apparition to Mirjana

“Dear children! Today I am calling you to, with complete trust and love, set out with me, because I desire to acquaint you with my Son. Do not be afraid, my children, I am here with you, I am next to you. I am showing you the way to forgive yourselves, to forgive others, and, with sincere repentance of heart, to kneel before the Father. Make everything die in you that hinders you from loving and saving – that you may be with Him and in Him. Decide for a new beginning, a beginning of sincere love of God Himself. Thank you.”

Mary is the Star of the New Evangelization

-Pope John Paul II

The Graces we should ask for each day are clearly stated in these messages.

A. Total Surrender into the Care of Mary.

1. Complete trust and love of Our Blessed Mother who loves us infinitely and  is so eager to take care of all our needs if only we would place all our confidence in her goodness.

2. Renewing the Act of Entrustment to her each day that she might lead us and guide us in all our prayers and actions so that she can present us to Jesus.

3. Living in the presence of Mary who is always at our side like a good Mother waiting for us to turn to her for protection, guidance, and help in all our needs.

B. The Removal of All Hindrances to Our Union with Jesus.

1. Confidence in the infinite mercy of Jesus who is so anxious to forgive all our sins and failings.

2. Sincere repentance – forgiving ourselves for all the rosaries not prayed from the heart, our negligence in fasting and making small sacrifices, our lack of attention to His presence and His words. Forgiving others who might have wounded us or slighted us.

3. Reception of the Gift of Peace from Jesus through our acts of contrition crowned in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

C. A New Beginning in Our Relationship with Jesus and the Father.

1. Deciding that we will make every effort to draw closer to Jesus by letting Our Blessed Mother bring us into His presence in every prayer.

2. Desiring to be united with Jesus in all our actions and to dwell in Him in union of thoughts, desires, and affections.

3. Reception of the Blessing of Jesus, which is the enjoyment of His presence and the availability of His protection, help in times of need, and the graces we desire.

-Rev. Robert Hughes, S.M.
