September is the month of Our Lady of Sorrows


The month of September is the month of Our Lady of Sorrows.

This devotion commemorates the spiritual martyrdom of Our Lady in union with Her Son’s Passion. It is also Her role in salvation history and is symbolised by one or seven swords piercing Her heart. The seven swords represents her Seven Sorrows which are the prophecy of Simeon, the flight to Egypt, the loss of the Infant Jesus for three days, the meeting of Jesus and Our Lady as He carried the Cross, the crucifixion and death of Our Lord, the taking down of Jesus’ body, and His burial.

Our Lady of Medjugorje

March 18, 2019 Message to Mirjana

My children, as a mother, as the Queen of Peace, I am calling you to accept my Son so that He can grant you peace of soul - that He can grant you that which is just, which is good for you. My children, my Son knows you. He lived the life of man, and at the same time of God: a wondrous life-human flesh, divine Spirit. Therefore, my children, while my Son is looking at you with His eyes of God, He penetrates into your hearts. His tender, warm eyes are looking for Himself in your heart. My children, can He find Himself [there]? Accept Him, and then the moments of pain and suffering will become moments of tenderness. Accept Him, and you will have peace in [your] soul - you will spread it to all those around you - and this is what you now need the most. Heed me, my children. Pray for the shepherds, for those whose hands my Son has blessed. Thank you.
