“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! … For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen” (Rom 11: 33-36).

"Grasp the Seriousness of the Situation: Much of What Will Happen Depends on Your Fasting and Prayers!" Our Lady of Medjugorje's Call for Fasting and Prayer in Families

On this Wednesday of the Third Week of Lent, may Our Lady’s words inspire and inflame us to desire to fast and pray – knowing that our very future depends on it:

“…today I invite you to pray for peace. At this time, peace is
threatened in a special way
and I am seeking from you to renew fasting
and prayer in your families
. Dear children, I desire you to grasp the
seriousness of the situation and that much of what will happen depends
on your prayers
, and you are praying a little bit! Dear children, I am
with you and I am inviting you to begin to pray and fast seriously
as in
the first days of my coming…” (7/25/91)

Father Slavko replied in an interview when asked why Our Lady didn’t stop the war – [think of any type of evil, including the evils of our day]. 
He said, 
“She
told us, without you I cannot do anything. It is the mystery of our
freedom. It’s like mother giving the car to the son and saying be
careful – an accident is possible. 

What can a mother do more? 
So I see Our Lady the same…. God doesn’t want to take away our freedom and the war is the decision of the people.
God’s will is clear. Stop the war. Pray and Fast.
…The war didn’t come because Our Lady came. …
For example, we had the same situation with Fatima. After that came the Russian Revolution….
Our Lady knew what is going on and wanted to help us.
Who knows what would happen without her intervention here?” His words about this begin at 2:01 in the video.

Our Lady has been coming daily for nearly 40 years for a reason. 

May we grasp the seriousness of the situation and respond to Our Lady’s call to fast and pray as she asks, for she has come to save us by drawing us back to her Son through prayer and fasting.  
Our Father isn’t sending her to us on a whim, or for fun.
Her messages and calls are heaven’s answer for our needs.
