Marija: Message is a new call and moment
Remarkable, but not worrying that the message for Christmas was given by the Child Jesus, not the Virgin Mary, says visionary Marija Pavlovic-Lunetti. She calls the message “a new moment for Medjugorje and the messages”, says it is “a new call” and shows “God works in a new way.”
Christmas Day’s surprise in Medjugorje, the Child Jesus giving the message instead of the Virgin Mary in whose arms the Child rested while He spoke, represents “a new moment for Medjugorje and the messages”, visionary Marija Pavlovic-Lunetti tells the Croatian newspaper Vecernji List.
“It was remarkable, but it is not worrying. Jesus said, “I am your peace, live My Commandments.” God gives us peace, gives us this opportunity if we open ourselves. It is a new call, God works in a new way” Marija says.
“I was so excited, I did not sleep all night. I constantly hear this message in my mind, even now” she tells the Croatian newspaper Slobodna Dalmacija.
Confirming that the Child Jesus stood up on the Virgin Mary’s lap before He spoke, Marija further tells the Split-based newspaper that she is not aware why it happened.
“I do not even know, I can only guess” she says.
The print edition of Vecernji List (December 27) contains more answers from Marija who emphasizes that she does not view the message as frightening, or as a harbinger of dramatic change to the Medjugorje phenomenon:
“Many people called me from all over, and they were emotional. God goes further with us, and with brightness. I think this is the right thing for Medjugorje, and a new moment for Medjugorje. You do not have to worry” she says.
“We want to say thank you for this message given in a special way, and we will try to pray harder. This is our answer from our heart and our soul. We say, “We are ready and we are here”.”
