Scripture Meditation

Jesus said to his disciples: “Do to others whatever you would have them do to
you. This is the law and the prophets. Enter through the narrow gate; for the
gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter
through it are many. How narrow is the gate and constricted the road that leads
to life. And those who find it are few.” (Mt 7,12-14)

Message of Our Lady, 25th June 1988

“Dear children! I am calling you to that love which is loyal and pleasing to
God. Little children, love bears everything bitter and difficult for the sake of
Jesus who is love. Therefore, dear children, pray that God come to your aid, not
however according to your desire, but according to His love. Surrender yourself
to God so that He may hear you, console you and forgive everything inside you
which is a hindrance on the way of love. In this way God can move your life, and
you will grow in love. Dear children, glorify God with a hymn of love so that
God’s love may be able to grow in you day by day to its fullness. Thank you for
having responded to my call.”

Catechism.

In prayer the Holy Spirit unites us to the person of the only Son, in his
glorified humanity, through which and in which our filial prayer unites us in
the Church with the Mother of Jesus. Mary gave her consent in faith at the
Annunciation and maintained it without hesitation at the foot of the Cross. Ever
since, her motherhood has extended to the brothers and sisters of her Son “who
still journey on earth surrounded by dangers and difficulties.” Jesus, the only
mediator, is the way of our prayer; Mary, his mother and ours, is wholly
transparent to him: she “shows the way” (hodigitria), and is herself “the Sign”
of the way, according to the traditional iconography of East and West. (2673
2674)

Dearest Gospa you formed and guided the first prayer group with Ivan and another one with Jelena in Medjugorje and you asked that other prayer groups be set up around the world to pray for peace. We pray for all pilgrims who responded to your invitation to set up a prayer group in their homes, parishes, Churches, bless them in their efforts to be messengers of peace through prayer. Guide them on their spiritual growth, so that you lead them to Jesus, and they in turn may lead others. AMEN.

Peace, Peace, Peace- and only peace! Peace must reign between man and God and between all men.

Concluding prayer:

Love is the sign of recognition to Your disciples, O Lord. We
thank You for every response of love given through service and gifts to others.
We pray for all members of the Medjugorje Prayer Groups and Centres in the whole
world. Together with Your Mother, may they more courageously and resolutely,
within their families and wherever they live, always show this narrow way, the
only one that leads to You. Help them to grow day by day in the fullness of Your
Love. Amen.

Prayer to the Queen of Peace

Mary, Mother of God and Our Mother, Queen of Peace!
You came to us to lead us to God.
Obtain for us the grace
not only to say:
“Be it done to me according to Your will!”,
but to live it, as You did.
Into Your hands we put our hands,
so that You may lead us to Him
amidst these afflictions and woes.
Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Creed, 7 Our Fathers, 7 Hail Marys, 7 Glory Bes….

Veni Creator Spiritus – Come Holy Spirit

Come Holy Spirit, Creator, come
best gift of God above,
the living spring, the living fire,
sweet unction and true love.

Thou Who are called the Paraclete,
from Thy bright heavenly throne,
come, take possession of our souls,
and make them all Thine own.

Thou who are sevenfold in Thy grace,
finger of God’s right hand,
His promise, teaching little ones
to speak and understand.

O guide our minds with Thy blest light,
with love our hearts inflame;
and with Thy strength, which never decays,
confirm our mortal frame.

Far from us drive our deadly foe,
true peace unto us bring,
and through all perils lead us safe
beneath Thy sacred wing.

Through Thee may we the Father know,
through Thee the eternal Son,
and Thee the Spirit of them both,
thrice-blessed Three in One.

All glory to the Father be,
with his co-equal Son:
the same to Thee, great Paraclete,
while endless ages run. Amen.

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful, and enkindle in them the
fire of Your love.
– Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created.
– And You shall renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray: God, who taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy
Spirit, grant that by the gift of the same Spirit we may be always truly wise
and ever rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
