Our Lady of Medjugorje Christmas Specials Set
Our Lady of Medjugorje Christmas Specials Set from A Blessed Call To Love, Ireland.
Bosnia-Hercegovina has become a spiritual haven with more than 40 million pilgrims having traveled there since its beginning. The apparitions are elevated in drama and urgency as the Virgin Mary reveals that these will be her last apparitions on earth, because, she states, “It will no longer be necessary.” In the history of the Roman Catholic Church, the Blessed Virgin Mary has appeared in apparition many times, the most recognizable names being Guadalupe (Mexico), LaSallette and Lourdes (France), Knock (Ireland) and Fatima (Portugal). But never in recorded Marian history has she appeared daily for so long a period of time, to so many chosen visionaries, with such profound global results.
The History of Medjugorje
Since 1981, in a small village named Medjugorje in the country of Bosnia-Hercegovina, the Blessed Virgin Mary, human mother of Jesus Christ, has been appearing in supernatural apparition and giving messages to the world. She tells us that God has sent her to us as an act of grace. In Her own words She tells us, “I have come to tell the world that God exists. He is the fullness of life, and to enjoy this fullness and peace, you must return to God”.
The Blessed Virgin’s mission is one of peace and love. She has come to earth to reeducate us and to help us convert and center our lives back to God. She continues to give messages to three of the original six visionaries. Once the Mother of Jesus stops appearing in Medjugorje, there will be three warnings given to the world as earth-shaking events. For that reason, the Blessed Virgin invites us to urgent conversion and reconciliation before the warnings, for once they occur, it will be too late for many.
Since the apparitions began in 1981, approximately 50 million people of all faiths, from all over the world, have visited Medjugorje and have left spiritually strengthened and renewed. Many bring back stories of miracles in the form of healings (of mind, body and spirit), supernatural visual signs, and deep conversions back to God.
Some of the messages
Today, the apparitions continue. The Blessed Virgin Mary tells us the blunt truth about the state of the world. Here are some examples of her messages given to the world through the visionaries at Medjugorje:
“You are ready to commit sin, and to put yourselves in the hands of Satan without reflecting.” (May 25, 1987)
“Children, darkness reigns over the whole world. People are attracted by many things and they forget about the more important.”
“Light won’t reign in the world until people accept Jesus, until they live His words, which is the Word of the Gospel.”
“Dear children, this is the reason for my presence among you for such a long time: to lead you on the path of Jesus. I want to save you and, through you, to save the whole world. Many people now live without faith; some don’t even want to hear about Jesus, but they still want peace and satisfaction! Children, here is the reason why I need your prayer: prayer is the only way to save the human race.” (July 30, 1987)
There are many such messages given to us over these past three decades.
Tradition of oils
The tradition of anointing with sacred oil is very old indeed. It is used in sacraments and also as a devotional practice. The sick person applies the oil and blesses themselves. As they do so, they are asked to pray to whomever the oil is dedicated to. The Irish blessings oils do not have miraculous power. It is God who has the power to heal. Applying the oil while praying are important ways for us to express our faith in God’s power. Moreover, by doing so we place our trust in God.
The Irish Blessings oils are dedicated to the Holy Spirit, Our Lady and the saints. The oils come through prayer. They are placed on their designated altars for a period of prayer before being sent out. The oils are of therapeutic grade.
The bottles of oils going out are accompanied with a prayer card. In addition, they are personalised for the saint to whom the oil is dedicated to
The Our Lady of Medjugorje healing oil is available here at our website.
