"You must spread my messages all over the world"
(Message given by Our Lady of Medjugorje on February 25, 1995)
In Medjugorje Our Lady talks first of all of the problem of peace. She introduces herself saying: "I am the Queen of Peace" and asks for the Feast of Regina Pacis to be kept on the 25th of June.
Mary also declares that this kind of peace can only be attained through that other peace, which is in the hearts of men. Mary has, from the outset, made five important requests: peace, conversion, prayer, fasting and the use of the Sacraments. Then a sixth message began to make itself clear: the extraordinary maternal presence of Mary. The series of vital messages ends with the appeal for a return to faith in the after-life: Heaven, Hell, Purgatory, and a return to belief in the existence of the devil, a fallen angelic creature who tempts men to do evil.
First Message: PEACE "Peace, peace, peace and only peace". (June 25, 1981) "The world can only be saved through peace, but the world will only have peace if it finds God. God exists; tell everyone so. Peace, peace, peace; make peace amongst yourselves, become brothers."
Second Message: CONVERSION "You of the parish, be converted: this is my second wish. In so doing all those who come here will be able to do likewise". (March 8, 1984) "Tell all my sons and my daughters, tell all the world as soon as possible, that I wish for conversion; the only word I say to the world is: Be converted".
Third Message: PRAYER "Without prayer there is no peace. Therefore, dear children, I urge you to pray for peace before the Cross". (September 6, 1984) "Today I wish to make you this request: PRAY, PRAY, PRAY, PRAY! In prayer you will find the solution to every difficult situation. Thank you for the progress you are making in prayer! Each on of you is dear to my heart, and I thank all those who have encouraged prayer within their families". (March 28, 1985)
Fourth Message: FASTING "Every Friday fast on bread and water. Jesus Himself fasted". "Real fasting is the forsaking of all sins; give up television programs which are a great danger to families: after watching television you are no longer capable of praying. Give up alcohol, cigarettes and pleasures. Fasting and prayer can also prevent war".
Fifth Message: THE SACRAMENTAL LIFE "I particularly urge you to attend Mass daily". "Mass is the highest form of prayer. You must be reverent and humble during Mass and prepare yourselves carefully".
Our Lady recommends monthly Confession to everyone.

"Dear children, today I ask you to stop criticizing and to pray for the unity of the parish, because my Son and I have a special plan for this parish. Thank you for your response to my call!"
"Dear children, today I wish to tell you to pray before beginning or ending anything you do. If you do so, God will bless you and your work. In this period you are praying little, yet you are working a great deal. Therefore, pray! You will find comfort in prayer. Thank you for answering my call!"
"I should like the people in this period to pray with me. And to pray as much as possible! In addition I want them to fast on Wednesdays and Fridays, and recite the Rosary everyday: the Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries..."
"Dear children, today I am requesting you to read the Bible every day in your homes: put it where it is easily seen, so that you are always reminded to read it and to pray. Thank you for your response to my call!"
"Dear children, today I am urging you to go back to praying in your families! Dear children, encourage even the youngest to pray and all children to attend Mass. Thank you for your response to my call!"
"Dear children, I am once again asking you to pray with your hearts. Make prayer, oh dear children, your daily nourishment, above all at this moment when you are so tired by work in the fields that you are unable to pray with your hearts. Pray and you will be able to overcome any amount of fatigue. Prayer will be both joy and rest for you. Thank you for the response to my message!"
"Dear children, today I urge you to place many sacred objects in your homes, and each one of you to wear a blessed object. Have all the objects blessed; in this way Satan will tempt you less, because you will have the necessary armor against him. Thank you for the response to my message!"
"Dear children, thank you for all your prayers, thank you for all the sacrifices. I wish, dear children, to urge you to renew the messages I am giving you. Above all, practice fasting, because through fasting you will reap profit and you will give me the joy of seeing God's plan for Medjugorje entirely fulfilled. Thank you for the response to my message!"
"Dear children, I am once again urging you to pray with your hearts. Dear children, if you pray with your hearts, the ice will melt in your brothers and sisters, and all barriers will disappear. Conversion will be easy for all those who desire it. You should beg for this gift to be given to your neighbors. Thank you for the response to my message!"
"Dear children, today I am requesting you to start reciting the Rosary with deep faith, so that I will be able to help you. You, dear children, wish to receive graces but you do not pray and I cannot help you if you do not want to make a move. Dear children, I urge you to recite the Rosary so that the Rosary may become a task that you undertake with joy; in this way you will understand why I have been with you like this for so long: I want to teach you how to pray. Thank you for the response to my message!"
"Dear children, hatred creates discord. It is blind to everyone and everything. I am asking you always to bring harmony and peace, especially within your homes and surroundings. Commit yourselves to love. Always make love your only approach, and with love you will convert into good everything that Satan wants to destroy and possess. Only like this will you belong completely to me and will I be able to help you. Thank you for the response to my message!"
"Dear children, I am asking you today again to pray and fast. You know that, with your help, I can do everything and stop Satan leading you towards evil and make him leave this place. Satan is lying in wait for you, dear children, in all your daily affairs: therefore I urge you to make sure that your day is filled with prayer and total abandonment to God. Thank you for the response to my message!"
"Dear children, today I wish to ask you to pray for the souls in Purgatory. Each soul needs prayers and graces to reach God's love. By doing this, you too, dear children, will acquire new mediators who will help you to know that all earthly things are unimportant for you in life: that you must only stretch out towards heaven. Therefore, dear children, pray without ceasing in order to help yourselves and also others to whom your prayers will bring joy. Thank you for the response to my message."
"Dear children, I beg you to accept the road to holiness. I love you and for this reason I wish you to be holy. I do not want Satan to hinder you on this road. Dear children, pray and gather everything that God offers you on this road, which is difficult, but God will reveal all of its sweetness to those who start following it, so that they will respond willingly to each one of His calls. Do not give any importance to the little things on earth. Reach out towards Heaven! Thank you for the response to my message!"
"Dear children, again today I am urging you to pray and to abandon yourselves completely to God. You know that I love you and it is out of love that I come here to show you the path to peace and to the salvation of your souls. I want you to obey me and not to allow Satan to tempt you. Dear children, Satan is strong and that is why I ask you to pray, and to offer me prayers for those who are under his influence, that they may be saved. Be witnesses through your lives and offer up your lives for the salvation of the world. I am with you and I thank you. And then in Heaven you will receive the rewards that I have promised you from the Father. Therefore, children, do not worry about anything. If you pray, Satan will not be able to put any obstacles in your way, because you are God's children and He keeps an eye on you. Pray! Hold the Rosary constantly in your hands, as a sign for Satan that you belong to me. Thank you for the response to my invitation!"
"Dear children, I am asking you to abandon yourselves totally to God. Pray, little children, that Satan does not sift you, like grain in the wind. Be strong in God. I desire that through you the whole world may come to know the path of joy. Do not be anxious or worried. God will help you and show you the way. I desire that you love all men, good and bad, with my love. Only this way can love reign over the world. Little children, you are mine: I love you and desire that you should abandon yourselves to me so that I can lead you towards God. Pray constantly that Satan may not take advantage of you and that he may know you are mine. I bless you with my blessing of joy. Thank you for having answered my call!"
"Dear children, my request for you to live the messages I give you is a daily one. In particular, dear children, I would like to draw you closer to the Heart of Jesus. Therefore, dear children, I am asking you today to pray to my dear Jesus, in order that all your hearts may become His. I also ask you to consecrate yourselves to my Immaculate Heart. I desire you to consecrate yourselves personally, as families and as parishes so that everything may belong to God through me. Therefore, dear children, pray that you may understand the true meaning of these messages that I give you. I do not want anything for myself, but all for the salvation of your souls. Satan is strong and therefore you, my little children, by constant prayer must draw close to my motherly Heart. Thank you for the response to my message!"
"Dear children, I am inviting you to abandon yourselves to God. At the moment I particularly want to ask you to give up all those things you are attached to which harm your spiritual life. Therefore, little children, choose God completely and do not allow Satan to enter into your lives through those things which damage you and your spiritual lives. Little children, God offers Himself fully to you and you can only discover Him and get to know Him by prayer. Therefore, make up your minds to pray. Thank you for having responded to my call!"
"Dear children, today, as never before, I am asking you to pray. May your prayer be a prayer for peace. Satan is strong and wants to destroy not only human life but also nature and the planet on which you live. Therefore, dear children, pray to be protected through prayer with the blessing of God's peace. God has sent me to be with you in order to help you. If you wish, hold the Rosary; only the Rosary can now perform miracles in the world and in your lives. I am blessing you and I will stay with you for as long as God wishes. Thank you because your response is necessary for the sake of goodness and peace! Thank you for having responded to my call!"
"Dear children, today I am asking you to pray for peace. Peace is being particularly threatened at the moment and I urge you to renew your prayer and fasting within your families. Dear children, I want you to understand the seriousness of the situation and that a great deal of what will occur depends on your prayers, but you pray very little. Dear children, I am with you, and I am asking you to start praying seriously and to fast as you did at the beginning of my apparitions. Thank you for your response to my message!"
"Dear children, today I ask you to accept my messages and put them seriously into practice. These are the days in which you must make up your minds for God, for peace and for goodness. May every bit of hatred and jealousy go out of your lives and your thoughts, leaving room only for the love of God and your neighbor. Only in this way will you be able to recognize the signs of this time. I am with you and am leading you towards a new time, which God will give you, as a grace, so that you may come to know Him still more. Thank you for answering my call!"
"Dear children, today as never before I invite you to pray for peace: peace in your hearts, peace in your families, peace in the entire world. Satan wants war, he wants the world to have no peace and he desires to destroy all that is good. For this reason, my dear children, pray, pray, pray. Thank you for answering my call!"
"Dear children, I want you to understand that I am your Mother and that I want to help you and invite you to pray. Only through prayer can you understand and accept my messages and put them into practice in your lives. Read the Holy Scriptures, live them, and pray so that you may understand the signs of these special times. This is a very particular period of time; this is why I am so close to you, to draw you towards my heart and the heart of my Son Jesus. Dear children, I want you to become children of Light, not of Darkness. For this reason live all that I say. Thank you for answering my call"
"Dear children, I invite you to open the door of your hearts to Jesus, as flowers open up to the sun. Jesus desires to fill your hearts with peace and joy. Dear children, you cannot obtain this peace if you are not at peace with Jesus. Therefore, I invite you to go to confession, so that Jesus may be your only truth and peace. This is why you must pray, my children, so that you may have the strength to put into practice everything I tell you. I am with you and love you. Thank you for answering my call."
Become missionaries, spreading peace and light all over the world - February, Saturday 25, 1995
"Dear children, today I invite you to become missionaries of the messages I give you from this place so dear to me (Medjugorje). God has allowed me to be with you for such a long time; for this reason, my children, live the messages I give you, transmit and spread them all over the world, like a river of love flowing amongst the people and nations who are so full of hatred and lacking in peace. I invite you, my children, to become peace, where there is no more peace, and light where there is darkness, so that every heart may accept this light and the path of salvation. Thank you for answering my call."
"Dear children, today I am asking you to fall in love with the Blessed Sacrament of the altar. Worship it, little children, in your parishes; in that way you will be united with the whole world. Jesus will become your friend and you will not talk about Him as though you barely knew Him. Union will be a joy for you and you will bear witness to the love Jesus has for every creature. Little children, when you worship Jesus you are also close to me. Thank you for answering my call!"
"Jesus, Mary, I love You, Save Souls"
