Our Lady's message to Mirjana Soldo, Medjugorje, 2nd April 2017:

"Dear children, Apostles of my love, it is up to you to spread the love of my Son to all those who have not come to know it; you, the little lights of the world, whom I am teaching with motherly love to shine clearly with full brilliance. Prayer will help you, because prayer saves you, prayer saves the world. Therefore, my children, pray with words, feelings, merciful love and sacrifice. My Son has shown you the way - He who became incarnate and made of me the first chalice, with His exalted sacrifice He has shown you how you need to love. Therefore, my children, do not be afraid to speak the truth. Do not be afraid to change yourself and the world by spreading love, by doing everything for my Son to be known and loved by loving others in Him. As a mother I am always with you. I am imploring my Son to help you for love to reign in your life - love that lives, love that draws, love which gives life. I am teaching you such love - pure love. It is up to you, my apostles, to recognize it, live it and spread it. Pray with feeling for your shepherds so that they can witness my Son with love. Thank you."

Our Lady's message to Marija Pavlović, Medjugorje, 25 April 2017:

"Dear children! Love, pray and witness my presence to all those who are far away. By your witness and example you can draw closer the hearts that are far from God and His grace. I am with you and intercede for each of you so that, with love and resoluteness, you may witness and encourage all those who are far from my Immaculate Heart. Thank you for having responded to my call."

“Queridos hijos! Amen, oren y testimonien mi presencia a todos los que están lejos. Con vuestro testimonio y ejemplo pueden acercar los corazones que están lejos de Dios y de Su gracia. Yo estoy con ustedes e intercedo por cada uno de ustedes para que, con amor y valentía, testimonien y animen a todos aquellos que están lejos de mi Corazón Inmaculado. Gracias por haber respondido a mi llamado."

"Cari figli! Amate, pregate e testimoniate la mia presenza a tutti coloro che sono lontani. Con la vostra testimonianza ed il vostro esempio potete avvicinare i cuori che sono lontani da Dio e dalla Sua grazia. Io sono con voi e intercedo per ciascuno di voi perché con amore e coraggio testimoniate ed esortiate tutti coloro che sono lontani dal mio Cuore Immacolato. Grazie per aver risposto alla mia chiamata.”

29th April - Feast of St Catherine of Siena - Father Matthew LC     

"Just this morning, the day that we were leaving, I was outside the church in Medjugorje at about 4.50am and these two ladies were standing at the statue of Our Lady and one of them says to me 'Are you the priest?' .. I said 'Er, yes, I am a priest.' And then she said 'Oh great, because I've only got 5 minutes and I need to go to confession.' And she said to me 'I asked Mary, I said to her 'Look Mary, I'm going home, you have to send me a priest.' And this was before 5am!  .. So that was for me a very, very tangible sign, among so many signs, of the very real presence of our mother and of how much she cares for us and how much she loves us as her little children."

Father Matthew Devereux, a Legionary of Christ priest from New Zealand, has lived and worked in Krakow, Poland, for the last 15 years.

30th April - 3rd Sunday of Easter - Rene      

"For me, after coming into my dreams, Mary has been ever since part of my prayer, each night and each day. And I say the rosary which I think gives me so much energy and passion. It shows me as well the love I need to give to God, to Jesus. And she became my model, as an individual, as a person, as a human being, to give myself wholly to God."

Rene is a Jesuit scholastic from the Philippines & gives his something about Mary in English & Filipino.
