"I once heard that whenever you want to forget about something you’ve lived or you just want to forget about, if you pray to the Virgin Mary she will help you in that. And more than twice, I've done it and successfully I forgot about several things. I have to thank the Virgin Mary for that."

Our Lady's message to Mirjana Soldo, Medjugorje, 2nd August 2015:
"Dear children, I, as a mother who loves her children, see how difficult the time in which you live is. I see your suffering, but you need to know that you are not alone. My Son is with you. He is everywhere. He is invisible, but you can see Him if you live Him. He is the light which illuminates your soul and gives you peace. He is the Church which you need to love and to always pray and fight for - but not only with words, instead with acts of love. My children, bring it about for everyone to come to know my Son, bring it about that He may be loved, because the truth is in my Son born of God - the Son of God. Do not waste time deliberating too much; you will distance yourselves from the truth. With a simple heart accept His word and live it. If you live His word, you will pray. If you live His word, you will love with a merciful love; you will love each other. The more that you will love, the farther away you will be from death. For those who will live the word of my Son and who will love, death will be life. Thank you."
"I love Mary because I'm always asking her for help and I have a very hard situation right now, but I always come to her and she's always there for me. I love her because there always is a miracle."

4th August - Feast of St John Mary Vianney, le Curé d'Ars - Fr Ronald
"Who is Mary for me? It is a simple and a very important question. Mary is first my mother. .. She is the one that I love with all my heart, with all my mind and all my feelings, all my being. And she is also my friend and, as a priest, is the one who is always with me and the one who comforts me in everything, in every moment, the one who helps me with her grace and protection. In one word, she is all."
Father Ronald is from Guatemala and gives his response in English & Spanish.
"Mary is my other mother, which means the one who protects me, the one who gives me most of the love I have in my life, the one who protects me with her blanket from my enemies. She gives me a lot of good things as well."

9th August - Feast of St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross - Carol
"Our Lady of Guadalupe is my very special version of Our Lady because she's pregnant. As I pray outside the abortion clinics, I have an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe always with us to show that the Blessed Mother was pregnant with her son Jesus and it's evident. The image is very miraculous at times and turns people's hearts."
Carol is from England.
Our Lady of Medjugorje's message to Marija Pavlović, 25 August 2015:
"Dear children! Also today I am calling you to be prayer. May prayer be for you the wings for an encounter with God. The world is in a moment of trial, because it forgot and abandoned God. Therefore you, little children, be those who seek and love God above all. I am with you and I am leading you to my Son, but you must say your ‘yes’ in the freedom of children of God. I intercede for you and I love you, little children, with an endless love. Thank you for having responded to my call."
“Queridos hijos! También hoy los invito a que sean oración. Que la oración sea para ustedes las alas para el encuentro con Dios. El mundo se encuentra en un momento de prueba porque ha olvidado y ha abandonado a Dios. Por eso, hijitos, sean aquellos que buscan y aman a Dios sobre todas las cosas. Yo estoy con ustedes y los guio hacia mi Hijo, pero ustedes tienen que dar su sí en la libertad de los hijos de Dios. Intercedo por ustedes, hijitos, y los amo con un amor infinito. Gracias por haber respondido a mi llamado."
"Cari figli! Anche oggi vi invito: siate preghiera. La preghiera sia per voi le ali per l’incontro con Dio. Il mondo si trova in un momento di prova, perché ha dimenticato e abbandonato Dio. Per questo, figlioli, siate quelli che cercano e amano Dio al di sopra di tutto. Io sono con voi e vi guido a mio Figlio, ma voi dovete dire il vostro “SI” nella libertà dei figli di Dio. Intercedo per voi e vi amo, figlioli, con amore infinito. Grazie per aver risposto alla mia chiamata.”
