Marija warns against materialism
More than 4,000 people heard Marija Pavlovic-Lunetti warn them against consumerism, materialism and atheism when the visionary guested Cassola in northern Italy on September 22. While priests heard confessions, police and civil defense took care of guarding Marija.
Materialism and consumerism are fruits of atheism, and must be replaced by putting God first through living the Christian faith actively and daily, Medjugorje visionary Marija Pavlovic-Lunetti told more than 4,000 attendees at a prayer meeting in Cassola, Italy, on Saturday.
“The Madonna asks us to escape from the materialism, consumerism and atheism that modern man is bringing with him” Marija told the crowd at the local football stadium, according to the regional news portal Bassano Net.
Privately organized by mayor Silvia Pasinato, the prayer meeting attracted people from all over the Veneto region, and beyond. Before Marija’s apparition, people had testified of their experiences in Medjugorje, and the Rosary had been recited.
During the Eucharistic Adoration that preceded the apparition, Marija was flanked by priests. Before Mass, priests also heard confessions on both sides of the stadium. Volunteers from the police and civil defense guarded the visionary in other situations.
The Virgin Mary gave no particular message, Marija informed when her appaprition was over.
“Today, the Madonna remained silent. But the Mother of Jesus was in our midst, and also today she looked at you and blessed you” the visionary said.
Marija repeated that words are unable to describe the beauty of the Virgin Mary:
“The Madonna has the attitude of a princess, a queen. The figure we see today of Our Lady of Fatima resembles, but does not come close to her beauty. She says, “I am beautiful because I love”, and every day she invites us to conversion and peace, asks us to put God first in our lives.”
