The Blessed Mother Mary has been appearing in Medjugorje for nearly thirty years. The original six children, now adult seers, tell the same remarkable story about the coming of the heavenly Queen of Peace as Mary describes herself in the appearances. These messages have brought hope to millions and rekindled faith, community and prayer.
Not many New Age leaders have commented on or supported these appearances. One leading New Age spiritual writer and speaker, and a Messenger for the Ascended Masters, Elizabeth Clare Prophet did speak about these appearances of Mother Mary in Medjugorje.
In 1998, Elizabeth Clare Prophet gave us updates on the appearances of Mother Mary at Fatima and Medjugorje. [i] She instructed us that the messages give us prophecies and they also give us antidote to prophecies. They are warnings so that we can act in time to avert or mitigate prophecy.
“These children were prophets of their time and of our time.” We are encouraged to take these messages to heart and rededicate ourselves to giving the rosary. “Know that as you faithfully recite the rosary every day, you are contributing to world peace. And you have a very special place reserved for you in the heart of the Blessed Mother…. At both Fatima and Medjugorje the Blessed Mother has given the same message–that we can save ourselves and the planet–if we will faithfully pray and give the rosary.”[ii]
“I believe that Mother Mary began her appearances in Medjugorje because her requests at Fatima have not been fulfilled. The Pope to this day has never revealed the third part of the Fatima secret…. The children said that during her Medjugorje visitations the Blessed Mother gave them messages stressing peace, conversion, prayer, fasting, penance and a sacramental life.”[iii]
In 1987, Mother Mary dictated through the Messenger Elizabeth
Clare Prophet saying, “I have come to prepare for calamities to come….
Know, then, beloved, that I have also appeared in Yugoslavia to these
special hearts, young in body but ancient of days, as the Queen of Peace. For peace is a pillar of fire that is thrust as a sword in the very midst of Communist territory….Blessed ones, Medjugorje has become as a figure-eight flow where so many hearts give attention to me that the light may descend as judgment….The simple of heart need to be reminded of their original faith. To deliver to them a message beyond that which they comprehend within the supposed security of the Church would only serve to neutralize the message and their opinions of its authenticity. Thus, to depart from scripture or canon would be to obviate the very purpose of my coming, which is to draw a tremendous devotion of people of every faith to the heart of God and the Divine Mother, that in this sacred tie to heaven they might pass through a darkness to come….I have desired, then, that you should see and understand the light, the determination, the joy, the confidence that the seeing of myself has given to the six—and which through them has been radiated to the many.”
On July 4, 2009, Marija, one of the visionaries of Medjugorje that Mother Mary has been appearing to regularly, reported that the reconsecration of America to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart was accomplished. This took place at a conference in Alabama. You can read more at this website: http://www.medjugorje.com/medjugorje-america/medjugorje-america/658-july-4-2009-apparition-in-the-field.html
Pray the Rosary
“In response to Mother Mary, I believe it is imperative that we all give a rosary daily.”[iv] And we can now invoke and affirm the Reconsecration of America to the Immaculate Heart of Mother Mary as we walk through our daily activities multiple times a day.
