5 Main Message From Medjugorje



1) Prayer: The message is to pray with love, trust, abandonment, and concentration. She says, "Without unceasing prayer, you cannot experience the beauty and greatness of the grace which God is offering you." (Feb 25, 1989)

2) Fasting: Fasting is essential in order to achieve spiritual freedom.
Through fasting, one is better to listen to God and man and perceive them more clearly. She says, "The best fast is on bread and water. Through fasting and prayer one can stop wars, one can suspend the natural laws of nature. Works of charity cannot replace fasting...Everyone except the sick, has to fast." (July 21, 1982)

Daily Reading of the Bible: On one occasion, the Virgin Mary appeared crying and said, "You have forgotten the Bible" (Oct 18, 1984) She also said, "Dear children, today I call you to read the Bible everyday in your homes and let it be in a visible place so as always to encourage you to read it and pray."

Confession: "Make your peace with God and among yourselves. For that, it is necessary to believe, to pray, to fast, and to go to confession." (June 26, 1981. It is said, that from the first days of the apparitions, she spoke about confession.

The Eucharist: "You do not celebrate the Eucharist as you should. If you would know what grace and what gifts you receive, you would prepare yourselves for it each day for an hour at least." (1985)
