1st April - Easter Sunday - Alžbeta      

"Our Lady, Mary, means for me a source of strength. She's someone who I can always turn to if I'm worried, if I'm sad or if I'm not sure what to do next with my life. She'll always give me an answer and she'll always lead me the right way to make the right decision."

Alžbeta is 25 & from Slovakia; she gives her response in English and Slovak.

Our Lady's message to Mirjana Soldo, Medjugorje, 2nd April 2018:

"Dear children, through the great love of the Heavenly Father I am beside you as your mother and you are beside me as my children, as apostles of my love whom I ceaselessly gather around me. My children, you are those who, through prayer, need to completely surrender to my Son so that you may no longer live but my Son may live in you – so that all those who do not know my Son may see Him in you and come to desire to know Him. Pray that in you they may see resolute humility and goodness, a readiness to serve others; that in you they may see that you live your vocation in the world with the heart, in communion with my Son; that in you they may see meekness, tenderness and love for my Son as well as for all brothers and sisters. Apostles of my love, you must pray much and cleanse your hearts so that you may be the first to walk on the way of my Son, that you may be the just who are united with the justice of my Son. My children, as apostles of my love, you must be united in the communion which emanates from my Son, so that my children who do not know my Son may recognize the communion of love and may come to desire to walk on the way of life, the way of unity with my Son. Thank you."

8th April - Feast of Divine Mercy - Sister Asterie      

"Mary is a mother to me. I love her because she loved me first. She has been really a mother of mercy and compassion throughout my life, in particular my story, during my history in Rwanda."

Soeur Asterie, a Religious of the Assumption, is from Rwanda and gives her response in English and Kinyarwanda. The song she sings to Mary was composed by one of the visionaries in Kibeho.

Our Lady's message to Marija Pavlović, Medjugorje, 25 April 2018

"Dear children! Today I am calling you to live your new life with Jesus. May the Risen One give you strength to always be strong in the trials of life and to be faithful and persevering in prayer;  because Jesus saved you by His wounds and by His Resurrection gave you new life. Pray, little children, and do not lose hope. May joy and peace be in your hearts and witness the joy that you are mine. I am with you and love you all with my motherly love. Thank you for having responded to my call."

“Queridos hijos! Hoy los invito a vivir con Jesús su vida nueva. Que el Resucitado les dé la fuerza para que sean siempre fuertes en las pruebas de la vida y fieles y perseverantes en la oración, porque Jesús los salvó con sus heridas, y con su Resurrección les ha dado una vida nueva. Oren, hijitos, y no pierdan la esperanza. Que en sus corazones haya alegría y paz, y testimonien la alegría de ser míos. Yo estoy con ustedes y los amo a todos con mi amor materno.  Gracias por haber respondido a mi llamado."

"Cari figli! Anche oggi vi invito a vivere con Gesù la vostra nuova vita. Che il Risorto vi doni la forza affinché siate sempre forti nelle prove della vita e fedeli e perseveranti nella preghiera, perché Gesù vi ha salvati con le Sue ferite e con la Sua resurrezione vi ha dato una vita nuova. Pregate, figlioli e non perdete la speranza. Nei vostri cuori ci siano gioia e pace, testimoniate la gioia di essere miei. Io sono con voi e vi amo tutti con il mio amore materno. Grazie per aver risposto alla mia chiamata."

28th April - Feast of St Louis Marie de Montfort - Albert      

"Mary is God’s greatest gift to me. Without her I wouldn’t have Christ, without her I wouldn't know Jesus the way I know him. All that He has given to me He gives to me through her. She is one of the first people I speak to in the morning, she's the last person I speak to before I go to bed. She's in a word my Mum and I love her."

Albert is 26 and was born in Australia & now living in England.
