Our Lady of Medjugorje's Message
Given to Marija Pavlovic-Lunett
March 25, 2015
“Dear children!
Also today the Most High permits me to be with you and
to lead you on the way of conversion. Many hearts have shut
themselves to grace and have become deaf to my call. You,
little children, pray and fight against temptation and all the
evil plans which the devil offers you through modernism.
Be strong in prayer and with the cross in your hands pray
that evil may not use you and may not conquer in you. I am
with you and pray for you. Thank you for having responded
to my call.”
Commentary on the
March 25, 2015 Message
Let us never fail to be filled with gratitude for our
Mother Mary, actively making her presence known to
us through her apparitions and messages in Medjugorje.
We must be reminded often that this tremendous grace
is a gift from the Most High for these dangerous times
in which we live. She has been allowed to remain with
us and to lead us on the way of conversion as we make
our way through the minefields of danger that the devil

has planted everywhere in our world.
“In this generation, like so many others, people have
been led to believe that the devil is a myth, a figure, an
idea, the idea of evil. But the devil exists and we must
fight against him. Paul tells us this, it’s not me saying
it! The Word of God is telling us this. But we’re not
all convinced of this. The Prince of this world, Satan,
doesn’t want our holiness, he doesn’t want us to follow
Christ. Maybe some of you might say: ‘But Father, how
old fashioned you are to speak about the devil in the
21st century! But look out because the devil is present!
The devil is here…even in the 21st century! And we
mustn’t be naïve, right? We must learn from the Gospel
how to fight against Satan.” (Pope Francis)
Our Lady echoes the Holy Father’s words when
she reminds us this month that the devil tries to defeat
God’s plan through Modernism.
“It must be confessed that these latter days have
witnessed a notable increase in the number of the
enemies of the cross of Christ, who by acts entirely
new and full of deceit, are striving to destroy the vital
energy of the Church, and utterly to subvert the very
Kingdom of Christ.” (Pope Pius X)
Modernism is the most dangerous of all heresies
because it destroys any basis for belief in a supernatural
world, whereas previous heresies had restricted
themselves to denying one or more teachings of the
Catholic faith. St. Pius X described Modernism as “the
synthesis of all heresies” as it seeks to “lay the axe not to
the branches and shoots (of the Catholic Church) but to
the very root”, that is, to the faith and “its deepest fibers,
and once they have struck the axe “they (modernists)
proceed to diffuse poison throughout the whole tree,
so that there is no part of the Catholic truth which they
leave untouched” Modernism poses a threat to our
faith, and to our hope of salvation.
It would not be false to call the Modernists the worst
enemies of the Church for it is not from without but from
within that they plot the destruction of the Church; by
mingling in themselves rationalism and Catholicism,
which is used to subtly seduce the ignorant in the name
of “progress”.
Ever since the days of Pope Pius X we have witnessed
this struggle between the two camps, that of Tradition, in
which the deposit of the faith is preserved and handed
over to future generations and that of the Modernists,
which marches in the name of progress to destroy all that
the Church holds to be sacred, while destroying not only
the deposit of the faith but even its very foundations,
that is the notion of faith itself.
In our day Modernism has only become more bold
and daring as it has now affected the whole Catholic
Church to so large an extent that it has been embraced
by almost the entire Catholic hierarchy in the name of
inclusiveness, freedom, human dignity, progressiveness,
rationalism, relativism. These are the key words that
serve as the mask to hide the ugly face of Satan.
Our Lady tells us that many hearts have been tricked
by these masks and have shut themselves off to the grace
God offers us through His Holy and obedient Mother.
They have become deaf to her call to conversion because
they have been bitten by the snake who offers them lies.
As I write this reflection on Good Friday, 2015, I
challenge you with Our Lady’s remedy. We must pray
and fight against this temptation in and around us with
our ONLY solution. The Cross of Jesus Christ is our
weapon. On this day when we enter into the very depths
of the Passion of Jesus, we must hold the cross in our
hands – accepting our crosses in life – and march on
with Mary as our guide. We must guard against being
carriers of the modernist philosophy to our brothers and
sisters. We must not allow this philosophy to enter into
our hearts. With the Cross in our hands, let us be ever
grateful that our Mother Mary is with us and is praying
for us. Only with Her, will we remain confident as we
march onto victory!
Message Given to
Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo
March 2, 2015
“Dear children! You are my strength. You, my apostles,
who with your love, humility and silence of prayer are
making it possible for one to come to know my Son. You
live in me. You carry me in your heart. You know that you
have a mother who loves you and who has come to bring
love. I am looking at you in the Heavenly Father – your
thoughts, your pains, your sufferings – and I offer them to
my Son. Do not be afraid and do not lose hope, because my
Son listens to his mother. Since he was born he loves and
I desire for all of my children to come to know that love. I
desire that all those who left him because of their pain and
misunderstanding may return to him and that all those who
have never known him may come to know him. That is why
you are here, my apostles, and I as a mother am with you.
Pray for the firmness of faith, because love and mercy come
from firm faith. Through love and mercy you will help all
those who are not aware that they are choosing darkness
instead of light. Pray for your shepherds because they are the
strength of the Church which my Son left to you. Through
my Son, they are the shepherds of souls. Thank you.”

The visionary Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo had daily
apparitions from June 24th 1981 to December 25th
1982. During the last daily apparition, Our Lady gave
her the 10th secret, and told her that she would appear
to her once a year, on the 18th of March. It has been
this way through the years. Several thousand pilgrims
gathered in prayer of the Rosary. The apparition lasted
from 13:47 to 13:53.
“Dear children! With a full heart I am asking you, I am
imploring you children: cleanse your hearts of sin and lift
them up to God and to eternal life. I am imploring you: be
vigilant and open for truth. Do not permit for all that is
of this earth to distance you from the true cognition of the
contentment in the communion with my Son. I am leading
you on the way of true wisdom, because only with true
wisdom can you come to know true peace and the true good.
Do not waste time asking for signs of the Heavenly Father,
because He has already given you the greatest sign, which
is my Son. Therefore, my children, pray so that the Holy
Spirit can lead you into truth, can help you to come to know
it, and through that knowledge of the truth that you may
be one with the Heavenly Father and with my Son. That is
the cognition which gives happiness on earth and opens the
door of eternal life and infinite love. Thank you.”

The Holy Rosary in
Medjugorje
We are pleased to introduce a newly released video,
“The Holy Rosary in Medjugorje. “ As you meditate
on the mysteries of the rosary, you will enjoy beautiful
music and images of Medjugorje. Our Lady’s words are
also presented on the screen, allowing you to meditate
on Her messages of peace, faith, conversion, prayer
and fasting. For those who have been to Medjugorje, the beautiful
images viewed during this rosary will help you vividly
recall the sights of this holy shrine. Those who have
yet to make the pilgrimage may be inspired to make
the journey of a lifetime. During the Joyful Mysteries, climb Apparition Hill
(Podbrdo), where the visionaries first saw Our Lady.
The Luminous Mysteries are prayed while viewing
scenes of the prayer areas around St. James Church and
in the hamlet of Bijakovici. The Sorrowful mysteries
are prayed while climbing Mt. Krizevac where bronze
images depict the Stations of the Cross. The Glorious
Mysteries highlight St. James Church and the adjacent
