Scripture Meditation

Jesus said to his disciples: “I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever
remains in me and I, in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do
nothing. Anyone who does not remain in me will be thrown out like a branch and
wither; people will gather them and throw them into a fire and they will be
burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you want
and it will be done for you. By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much
fruit and become my disciples. As the Father loves me, so also, I love you.
Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just
as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. I have told you
this so that my joy might be in you and your joy might be complete.” (Jn 15,5-8)


Message of Our Lady, 25th June 1996

“Dear children! Today I thank you for all the sacrifices you have offered me
these days. Little children, I invite you to open yourselves to me and to decide
for conversion. Your hearts, little children, are still not completely open to
me and therefore, I invite you again to open to prayer so that in prayer the
Holy Spirit will help you, that your hearts become of flesh and not of stone.
Little children, thank you for having responded to my call and for having
decided to walk with me toward holiness.”

Where does prayer come from? Whether prayer is expressed in words or gestures,
it is the whole man who prays. But in naming the source of prayer, Scripture
speaks sometimes of the soul or the spirit, but most often of the heart (more
than a thousand times). According to Scripture, it is the heart that prays. If
our heart is far from God, the words of prayer are in vain. (2562)

Dearest Gospa, we thank you for all the parishioners who responded to your messages by opening their hearts and their homes to the constant stream of pilgrims. Thank you also, dear Gospa, for the guides who lead the pilgrims during their stay in Medjugorje. Bless them all and fill them with faith, love and kindness that they may witness your presence to all they encounter. AMEN

Concluding prayer:

Thank You, Lord, for Your love, thank You for the call to
remain with the heart in Your love and to bear much fruit. Thank You for having
chosen this parish in a special way, by giving it to Your Mother, the Queen of
Peace, with the mission to call the world to peace and reconciliation, to
conversion through the renewal of fasting and prayer… Thank You for the openness
of each heart, which knew how to receive Her, and allowed Her to make each of
them a visible sign for those who come here. Today we pray to You, o Lord: make
this parish an even greater sign of the Kingdom of God, and help the
parishioners to become joyful and holy fruits of the presence of Our Lady. 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.

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.
