Message, 25. February 2020

“Dear children! In this time of grace, I desire to see your faces transformed in prayer. You are so flooded by earthly concerns, you do not even feel that spring is at the treshold. You are called, little children, to penance and prayer. As nature fights in silence for new life, also you are called to open yourselves in prayer to God, in Whom you will find peace and warmth of the spring sun in your hearts. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Could anyone clarify what this news means? It was shown in the Medjugorje every day website today

From Medjugorje there's also good news: after years in which they could not keep the Blessed Sacrament, for obedience to the provisions of Bishop Ratko Peric, 24 Feb. today. 2020 Bishop Hoser and Pezzuto Apostolic Nuncio handed over the decrees of the Holy See that will allow to receive the Eucharist. A brief will celebrate Mass in the community and will have the Blessed Sacrament in the Chapel to live Adoration.
We thank the Lord and the Church for this immense gift!
A moment really waited for many years!
Communities that have received de creti are:
- Community Cenacolo
- New Horizons Community
- Community of the Beatitudes
- Community Mariana Oasis of Peace
- Community Mary Queen of Peace
- Totally Your Association "House of Mary"
- Association Light of Mary



Praise and Glory to God

Does this decree mean that these communities may now house the Blessed Sacrament and that before they were not allowed? Thanks.

The Cenacolo Community and the Oasis of Peace Community did at one time house the Blessed Sacrament but the local bishop put a stop to this. Henryk Hoser did a check on ALL the communities based in Medjugorje and has “decreed” that some of them are now allowed to expose the Blessed Sacrament, probably with some conditions attached.

This from the Medjugorje Commission report sheds some light:
The tendency to focus the attention of pilgrims on the alleged visionaries and their visions is strengthened by the autonomous presence in Medjugorje of several new religious communities. This requires that this presence be disciplined, proceeding to identify the nature and degree of canonical approval of the communities present; moreover, to screen their activities, even from an economic and financial point of view. This will protect the pilgrims from the various risks of sectarian drifts, the formation of “parallel churches,” economic abuse.

Marija commented on the contents of the February 25th message in a phone call to Father Livio. She does this every month after the message is given. Here are her comments translated through an online translation from Italian to English on the February 25th message
THE VISIONARY MARIJA: This virus is evil, does not come from God.
"I am convinced that this situation will not last long, but for us it is an invitation to start a new life.

When I heard this Coronavirus, I wondered: "How can we fight it?". As the name tells us, Corona means Crown, therefore we need to fight it with the rosary. The Rosary wins in many occasions. I am convinced that this situation will not last long, but for us it is an invitation to start a new life. We have experienced how small the earth and how this situation can touch everyone. We think that our life is unique and unrepeatable, but it is also fragile together. Our Lady tells us: "Pray that you will find peace in prayer." We do our best in our family, in our parish, in our work, for our Italian so impressed, but I believe that Our Lady will not abandon us. But we must respond. I remember that in the early years of the apparitions Italians came to Medjugorje with enthusiasm. We need to take that enthusiasm and transmit it with our prayers. Let's start with the Rosary in our families. May the Lord deliver us from this fear ...
Jesus said that certain evil spirits can only avert by prayer and fasting.
For this virus we begin to pray and fast ... "

In these days circulating messages that Our Lady would speak of China and of this virus. It's not true. Also in today's message, Our Lady did not speak of this fear, but she gives us hope and invites us to fight with prayer, penance. So the Virgin Mary with this message invites all that are lost and far from God, to return to God. Thanks to Our Lady's presence for so many years, I have seen many sick people come to Medjugorje with fear, they then began to pray, and they get a lot better. I hope that this time we begin to approach God in prayer, because we see that life is fragile. For this virus we see the fragility of the world and of science. Our Lady wants to see that we are transformed in prayer, because one who prays is not afraid of the future, as she told us. The future is not in our hands but in God's hands.

A sensible response by Maria, in contrast to the later broadcast by Fr Livio:

This is the general line taken by the Italian media in response to Fr Livio’s ‘thesis’:

Coronavirus, Radio Maria's explanation:
"Warning of Our Lady of Medjugorie to humanity"

27.02.2020 - 23:31

Coronavirus ? On the epidemic there is the thesis of Radio Maria .

A shocking explanation that causes discussion. Coronavirus, according to this thesis, is one of the plagues sent by God on men to convert them. It is said in one of the most popular programs of the Catholic broadcaster, that of Father Livio Fanzaga's sermons.

The coronavirus is a warning that comes directly from the virgin of Medjugorie and that would have been conveyed through the visionaries in one of the periodic messages. The epidemic is first symbolically compared to those reported by Manzoni, in 1600, to the black plague that was immortalized by Boccaccio in the early Middle Ages, and to the Spanish one that made a massacre of deaths in the first decade of the last century. All signs, according to Father Livio, to convert humanity to faith and the return of the sacred.

According to the priest, the epidemic is seen as a divine punishment, a warning to indicate to the faithful to return to the high road.
