Permit Me to Lead You....

"Dear children! May this time be for you a time of prayer and silence. Rest your body and spirit, may they be in God’s love. Permit me, little children, to lead you, open your hearts to the Holy Spirit so that all the good that is in you may blossom and bear fruit one hundred fold. Begin and end the day with prayer with the heart. Thank you for having responded to my call." BVM, Message to Mirjana, July 25, 2011


On June 24, 1981, two teen-age girls went for a walk in the rocky hills above their village in western Yugoslavia. Suddenly, one of them saw in the distance the luminous silhouette of a young woman, “Mirjana, look! It’s Our Lady!” Ivanka said. But her companion, without bothering to look, replied, “Come on! Why would Our Lady appear to us!?”1

The next day they, along with four of their friends, went to the hill ( Mt Podbrdo) at the same time, about 6:30 p.m. They were stunned when the woman appeared to them.

She later spoke to them saying, “Peace, peace, peace!”. “Be reconciled!” She told them that she wished to be known as the “Queen of Peace”.

Thus began the longest series of Marian apparitions in the history of the church, from 1981 until the present day. She said that she had come to bring peace and reconciliation to a world that was intent of destroying itself.2

For thirty years now, out of love for each one of us, Our Blessed Mother continues to speak to the world through these six visionaries: “Now is a time of grace… I wish to be with you to reconcile the world through prayer, fasting, faith, conversion and peace…God is sending me to show you the way…Give your hand to me…and permit me to lead you.” Yes, now is a time to break free from our old ways of thinking, reasoning, judging and living—a time to embrace conversion of heart and true love for our neighbor, a time to pray and a time to fast.3

Our Lady calls us to daily prayer, to fasting, to reading the Bible, to monthly confession and to Holy Communion. These five things will bring peace to a world that has lost its way.

"Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

Dear Daily Grace, I needed that message in this time that we are going through. My wife has lost her job due to not enough in the budget at her place of work. And we need prayer and Our Lady is so loving and so caring for us all. We pray as a family every night and hope that Jesus will bless her with a job. We pray for all the people who are without work. Because we know truly what they are going through. Peace St. R
