Medjugorje September 18, 2021
Dear friends, praised be Jesus and Mary!
1. On August 25, 2021, visionary, Marija, received the monthly message:
Dear children! With joy I am calling all of you, little children, who have responded to my call: be joy and peace. Witness with your lives Heaven, which I am bringing to you. It is time, little children, that you be a reflection of my love for all those who do not love and whose hearts hatred has conquered. Do not forget: I am with you and intercede for all of you before my Son Jesus, that He may give you His peace. Thank you for having responded to my call.
2. Medjugorje, summer 1985…
An Italian priest told me about this unique experience.
In those days, confessions mostly took place on the lawns surrounding the church. Here and there you would see 2 chairs facing each other, and people were queuing in the fields, at a distance.
A woman came and sat in front of him. The priest greeted her with a smile, blessed her and prayed inwardly for her. Very quickly, however, he realized that this woman had something in mind other than a confession.
“How handsome you are!” she said to him. “But what are you doing here?”
And she started making fun of him in a loud voice, so everyone could hear her. The priest waited for her to calm down, thinking to himself: “If I chase her away as Padre Pio would probably do in my place, she will lose herself.” He waited in vain… but the woman continued to insult him rudely, and her vocabulary was enough to make a regiment blush. Then came the blasphemies. People were looking and rather scandalized by what they were hearing. Increasingly humiliated and powerless to find a way out, the priest begged Our Lady to show him how to handle the situation. He couldn’t let her leave in such a bad state. The minutes ran by, and the whole scene had already lasted 30 minutes… there had to be a way out!
Suddenly, a small bell started ringing. It was 6:40 p.m., the time when the Blessed Mother appears.
At that precise moment, against all odds, the woman bursts into tears! Very loud tears! This wounded heart, which had found only sarcasm to express its distress, was turned upside down by grace. The dam burst. It was as if she had transformed into another person. While crying, she barely managed to whisper her confession. And that confession seemed to have no end, it lasted… until 2 o’clock in the morning!
The priest was overjoyed: “On that day,” he told me, “I experienced the most beautiful confession of my life!”
3. Like a decaying corpse?
Jesus told St. Faustina: “… Tell souls where they are to look for solace, that is, in the Tribunal of Mercy. There the greatest miracles take place, and are incessantly repeated… […] it suffices to come with faith to the feet of My representative and to reveal to Him one’s misery, and the miracle of Divine Mercy will be fully demonstrated. Were souls like a decaying corpse so that from a human standpoint there would be no [hope of] restoration, and everything would already be lost, it is not so with God. The miracle of Divine Mercy restores that soul in full… (Diary, 1448)
A true shepherd!
If I appreciated the overwhelming conversion of this woman, I also appreciated the remarkable attitude of this priest who did not want to leave this soul to its misery without having done everything in his power to bring her back to God. He endured the worst humiliations, vexations and sarcasm without allowing himself to be defeated, so great was his faith in the power of divine mercy, especially for those who are completely lost. He somehow provoked the Savior by His perseverance in faith. What a magnificent example! It reminds me of the Siro-Phoenician woman in the Gospel who ended up winning her case with Jesus for her daughter who was tormented by a demon, after being rebuffed 3 times! “O woman, great is your faith! it shall be done for you as you desire.” (Matthew 15:28)
A priest who prays obtains miracles! There is a reason why Mary prays and begs us to pray for our shepherds. They have a great responsibility before God. Even if seminary studies do not always prepare them to face the most difficult situations in our “lost world”, they hold within them the power of Jesus’s priesthood that has been conferred upon them in the sacrament of Holy Orders. A priest who prays can work wonders. A priest who walks hand in hand with the Blessed Mother and who dwells in her intimacy is a happy priest who radiates peace. He will be safely guided and will emerge victorious from the attacks of the Evil One. Through our prayers and sacrifices on their behalf, it is up to us to form walls of fire around our priests for their protection.
4. An inescapable emergency. Changing the direction of our lives and entering into true conversion is an absolute emergency. Nowadays, where uncertainties about the future are increasing, there is one certainty that we all have, namely that we will one day move from this world into the next. May that day find us in a state of grace! Yes, this is a real emergency: turning back to God, being in a state of grace and remaining there at all cost. May our hearts always be at peace with God. Father Slavko Barbaric was a great example: every day he tried to convert himself on a specific point. The world is suffering from a dense darkness of consciences because the essential values of human life are being trampled underfoot. However, this is not necessarily fatal. Let us not be deceived by confusion! The Word of God is unchanged, it is the Light on our path, it is divine truth, our unshakable rock. In the storm raging now, we need this blessed lighthouse!
To the pilgrims who come to us, we hand out a small card with the “10 Words” (The biblical term for the 10 commandments). Pilgrims are invited to perform a good examination of conscience. How? By contemplating Jesus on the cross, at length and with all their heart, in order to better understand what love they are loved with and to what extent Jesus took upon himself our iniquities to deliver us from them. Looking at Jesus on the cross gradually awakens in us deep compassion for him. This compassion of the heart is a priceless treasure that will make us hate our sin and allow contrition to spring forth within. In the sacrament of Reconciliation, receiving absolution from a priest with sincere repentance is to allow the Blood of Jesus to flow in abundance over our soul, to purify and strengthen it. What a liberation! What a joy! A good confession restores in us the “peace of God which surpasses all that can be conceived”, according to St Paul’s word (Phil 4:7). Who does not long for this peace of heart today?
The 10 Commandments

5. The mission continues!
I warmly thank those who are inviting me to come to their parish and give a talk about the messages. However, even though I miss the missions terribly since the pandemic (with the exception of my 3 days in Ukraine last October), I think it is better to stay here in Medjugorje for the moment. We have a very lively parish here and great facilities for prayer.
The time has come to pray much more. I strive to reach you rather through my videos (and for the French speaking through the live broadcasts on the 26th of each month), and I hope to reach out to all kinds of people, even unbelievers. Please pray that this evangelization may remain protected!
5. And if you don’t have it yet … “Spiritual Warfare, the Fast Lane to Union with God” How to resist Satan and stay the course of prayer in the midst of so much spiritual confusion. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the spiritual forces of evil…” (Eph 6:12) An short easy-to-read pocket tool to help you pray and walk peacefully in the midst of the flames!
My books are available to buy on Amazon, Google Play books and Ingram Spark.
6. The visionary Ivan Dragicevic wrote some of his thoughts (early September):
Dear friends, these are difficult times. We have bad leaders. There is a lack of strong moral character in politics. People are disoriented. Programs are moving forward. Humanity is again at a crossroads. Wisdom has gone astray. Common sense is disappearing while subjectivism is in the superficiality of life. Indifference to the great values of the Spirit is the great sin of our time!
And yet, this is a time for searching, for turning back, for discovery and for understanding the Christian DNA of the origins. This is a time to know Christ better in order to be strong enough to speak the truth and defend the demands of the Truth. Seeking and speaking the truth is a gift of God for every person. It is an exciting journey. We are not afraid!(Translated from Italian)
9. Our next Live Broadcast in French will take place on September 26th at 9pm and will focus on the message of September 25th. The live broadcast of August 26th can be seen here: youtube.com/watch?v=tWuct9u64Ms
Dearest Gospa! I have no doubt that you read the news of the world. You can see what is happening in its truth from heaven. So, the fact that you tell us of your joy, that you invite us to be joy and peace, is because you see all things in their finality, namely in the total victory of love, the victory of God. Thank you for answering our call!

PS 1. The Rosary at 5am! The small group of locals or visitors that was climbing Podbrdo Hill every morning at 5am to thank Mary for coming to us for 40 years, in this land of Herzegovina, decided to continue this courageous offering throughout the year following the Anniversary of the Apparitions, in other words until June 25th, 2022. If any among you wish to join this beautiful prayer in spirit from home, rosary in hand, know that great graces are attached to nighttime prayer. It confuses the works of darkness, it prevents suicides, etc.
PS 2. Father Jozo Zovko at work! Despite his precarious health, Fr. Jozo was able to continue to welcome pilgrims this summer on the island of Badija. Let us pray for his health, may God keep him with us for a long time to come!
PS 3. A remarkable funeral! On this link you will find the funeral ceremony of Bishop Hoser in Warsaw. (He died on August 13th). Note the impressive number of bishops around the altar. youtube.com/watch?v=z1c11eNSNz8
Here in Medjugorje, his farewell Mass was held on August 26th, it was presided over by the Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Luigi Pezzuto. A huge crowd of Croatians and pilgrims were present, a clear sign of the love he was able to sow in our hearts. Let us pray for the appointment of his successor!
PS 4. Vicka remains invisible, she is praying for us a great deal, she is suffering and offering everything to Jesus. She had to undergo an operation on her spine again, for the sixth time! It is up to us to support her on this Way of the Cross that she has been walking for years, which she is transforming into a true path of joy!
PS 5. The visionary Marija was very present in Medjugorje this summer, and thanks to her we were able to be present at a few apparitions. Marija is admirable in her desire to share as much as possible the graces of Mary’s visits. Moreover, according to Vicka, wherever you may find yourself, if you keep silent at the moment of the apparition to welcome Mary into your heart, you will receive the same graces as the visionaries do. Mary is happy to see our hearts wide opened to her!
