FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE INFANT JESUS IS SEEN AT MEDJUGORJE ON DAY OTHER THAN CHRISTMAS
From"Children of Medjugorje":
An unprecedented event took place in Medjugorje. Since 1981, the
Gospa always appears on Christmas evening carrying newborn Baby Jesus in
her arms. Now for the first time in 22 years, Mary came with Baby Jesus
on a day other than Christmas, during her apparition to Mirjana on January
2nd, at 9:12 am, under the tent of the Cenacle. Our Lady was carrying the
Baby in her arms. When Mirjana came out of her ecstasy, she was shaken by
the event. Back home, after having prayed, she wrote the message
received during the apparition. She said later that she could hardly see
Baby Jesus, for Our Lady was standing high before her.
"Today I bring you my Son, your God. Open your hearts in order to know how to
accept him and carry him with you. Welcome the happiness and peace that he
offers you. Thank you for having responded to my call."
"This coming of Baby Jesus among us carries a meaning that cannot be passed over. Why did Baby Jesus come at the beginning of this year 2004? Why does the Gospa ask us to "carry him with us"? Why does our Mother see that we need this very grace now? How are we going to open our hearts to the "Baby" that she gives us so warmly? Mirjana did not give any explanation, for it is not her role to do so. But everyone will know in prayer how to make this message resound within him in a unique way. May Baby Jesus really be the center of our hearts and captivate our attention, for, according to the prophet Isaiah: "A child will lead them."
