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

"Dear children, when you come to me, as to a mother, with a pure and open heart, know that I am listening to you, encouraging you, consoling you and, above all, interceding for you with my Son. I know that you desire to have a strong faith and to express it in the right way. What my Son asks of you is to have a sincere, strong and deep faith - then every way in which you express it is proper. Faith is a most wonderful mystery which is kept in the heart. It is between the Heavenly Father and all of His children; it is recognized by the fruits and by the love which one has towards all of God's creatures. Apostles of my love, my children, have trust in my Son. Help all of my children to come to know His love. You are my hope - you who strive to sincerely love my Son. In the name of love, for your salvation, according to the will of the Heavenly Father and through my Son, I am here among you. Apostles of my love, along with prayer and sacrifice, may your hearts be illuminated with the love and the light of my Son. May that light and love illuminate all those whom you meet and bring them back to my Son. I am with you. In a special way, I am alongside your shepherds. With my motherly love I illuminate and encourage them, that with the hands blessed by my Son, they may bless the entire world. Thank you."

5th December - Genevieve      

"Our Lady gave life to one person indeed, the Son of God, and in doing so she gave more than life, she gave salvation, grace, sanctity, healing, deliverance, connection with God, redemption and salvation to everybody - everybody who was alive at that time, everybody who has been alive since and everybody who will ever live. She really is a vessel of pure grace and love. She knows nothing but love because she’s completely sin free and we know that from our Tradition and we know that from our faith."

Genevieve is from England.

6th December - Noel      

"Mary is our eternal mother."

Noel is 33 and from India.

7th December - Feast of St Ambrose of Milan - Lenka      

"I just really would like to recognise Mary in my life as my mother. Another thing I want to share is that I think she’s for me also a great example as a woman - the beauty of her heart, her humility. She kept everything that the Lord told her in her heart and was thinking about those words."

Lenka is from Slovakia.

8th December - Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception - Graham      

"What that means I think is that every time a Catholic says the Hail Mary they can implicitly affirm the Immaculate Conception. Isn’t that beautiful! Every time we say the Hail Mary in the rosary, ‘Hail Mary, full of grace, you were conceived without sin.’"

Graham is 26 and from the United Kingdom.

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

"Dear children! I am carrying to you my Son Jesus who is the King of Peace. He gives you peace and may it not be only for you but, little children, carry it to others in joy and humility. I am with you and am praying for you in this time of grace which God desires to give you. My presence is a sign of love here while I am with you to protect you and lead you towards eternity. Thank you for having responded to my call."

“Queridos hijos! Les traigo a mi hijo Jesús que es el Rey de la Paz. Él les da la paz y que esta paz no sea solo para ustedes, hijitos, sino llévenla a los demás en alegría y humildad. Yo estoy con ustedes y oro por ustedes en este tiempo de gracia que Dios desea darles. Mi presencia aquí es un signo de amor, mientras estoy con ustedes, para protegerlos y guiarlos hacia la eternidad. Gracias por haber respondido a mi llamado."

"Cari figli! Vi porto mio Figlio Gesù che è il Re della pace. Lui vi dona la pace, che questa pace non sia solo per voi, figlioli, ma portatela agli altri nella gioia e nell'umiltà. Io sono con voi e prego per voi in questo tempo di grazia che Dio desidera darvi. La mia presenza è il segno dell'amore, mentre sono qui con voi per proteggervi e guidarvi verso l'eternità. Grazie per aver risposto alla mia chiamata."
