WE KNOW the devastation that happened in Tacloban City, wrought by Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda), was to be history’s strongest. The aftermath was incredible but real.
But the fact is that the Philippines has not been alone in tragedies in the magnitude of Yolanda. Since January, many other areas have been similarly flattened by various forces of nature. The world, alas, seems to be gyrating in pain.
Search “weird events of 2013” on youtube.com and see an almost three-hour compilation of the abnormalities of our times in various parts of the world. And get shocked.
All these events seem to confirm recent prophecies affirming that the world is just at the threshold of the Apocalyptic timetable. In Medjugorje where the Blessed Mother has been appearing regularly since 1981, one of the visionaries replied, “Be prepared do die,” when asked what the world should do when the chastisement for unconverted mankind occurs.
The chastisement was among the revelations in other apparitions of the Blessed Mother worldwide in our times. From Medjugorje, the Blessed Mother continues to reach out to all the corners of the earth to convey message preparing us for what’s coming. Here are two of the latest of her messages.
– November 25, 2013 Message to Marija: “Dear children! Today I call all of you to prayer. Open the doors of your heart profoundly to prayer, little children, to prayer with the heart; and then the Most High will be able to act upon your freedom and conversion will begin.
Your faith will become fi rm so that you will be able to say with all your heart: ‘My God, my all.’ You will comprehend, little children, that here on earth everything is passing. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
-November 02, 2013 Message to Mirjana: “Dear children, anew, in a motherly way, I am calling you to love, to continually pray for the gift of love, to love the Heavenly Father above everything.
When you love Him you will love yourself and your neighbor. This cannot be separated. The Heavenly Father is in each person. He loves each person and calls each person by name. Therefore, my children, through prayer hearken to the will of the Heavenly Father. Converse with Him.
Have a personal relationship with the Father, which will deepen even more your relationship as a community of my children – my apostles. As a mother I desire that, through the love for the Heavenly Father, you may be raised above earthly vanities, and may help others to gradually come to know, and come closer to the Heavenly Father.
My children, pray, pray, pray for the gift of love because ‘love’ is my Son. Pray for your shepherds that they may always have love for you as my Son had, and showed by giving His life for your salvation. Thank you.”
