It is sad to report that in the early hours of Friday the beautiful marble statue that stands on Apparition Hill was vandalised, the nose and left hand broken. The incident has been reported to the police. Please pray for whoever was responsible for this damage.
The statue was donated by a Korean family whose child was healed in Medjugorje.
BE MY EXTENDED HANDS...
Dear children! At this time, I call you all to pray for my intentions. Especially, little children, pray for those who have not yet come to know the love of God and do not seek God the Saviour. You, little children, be my extended hands and by your example draw them closer to my Heart and the Heart of my Son. God will reward you with graces and every blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call. November 25, 2004
Not without significance...
• Our Lady first appeared on Apparition Hill on June 24, 1981, the feast of the Nativity of John the Baptist. Today, (Friday) under the cover of darkness someone made their way up the Hill of Apparitions with a heart intent on mutilating the statue of the Queen of Peace erected in thanksgiving for her intercession in healing a sick child.
It is not without significance that this is also the same day we acknowledge the martydom and mutilation of John, beheaded at the instigation of another wicked heart, that of Herodias, wife of Herod, who demanded the Baptist’s head and which her daughter hhanded to her on a plate.
Dear children! These days satan is manifesting himself in a special way in this parish. Pray, dear children, that God’s plan is brought into effect and that every work of satan ends up for the glory of God. I have stayed with you this long so I might help you along in your trials. Thank you for having responded to my call. February 7, 1985
Happy the man who discovers wisdom,
the man who gains discernment:
gaining her is more revealing than silver,
more profitable than gold.
She is beyond the price of pearls,
nothing you could covet is her equal.
In her right hand is length of days;
in her left hand, riches and honour.
Her ways are delightful ways;
her paths all lead to contentment.
She is a tree of life for those who hold her fast,
those who cling to her live happy lives.
Proverbs 3 : 13-18
