Saints Joachim and Anne and Medjugorje – How Thin the Veil Is Between Heaven and Earth!

Today,
July 26th, is the Feast of Saints Joachim and Anne.



How
deeply Mary’s mom and dad must love this place where it is reported
that Mary, Our Queen of Peace and their little girl, has been coming daily for over 38 years! If this is really
true, how much they must be praying for all those who come to this place
seeking Christ, and for “those who do not yet know the love of God,”
for whom Mary’s continues to beg us to pray. 



If
all that is reported in Medjugorje is real, it is incredible to
contemplate how close the Mystical Body of Christ is to us!  All the
signs, wonders and graces flowing upon the world through Medjugorje, I’m
sure are, in part, sent to help us to recognize how thin the veil is
between heaven and earth! And how deeply ALL the angels and saints are
invested in our lives and are praying for God’s plans for our conversion
to be fulfilled!!

How beautiful it is to consider this!


Mary, Queen of All Saints, pray for us! 
Sts. Joachim and Anne, parents of Our Queen of Peace, pray for us!
St. James, Apostle and Martyr, whom I wrote of yesterday, pray for us!
St. John the Baptist, on whose feast day the apparitions began, pray for us!
St. Padre Pio, who foretold of Medjugorje, pray for us!
St. John Paul II, who believed Medjugorje was an answer to his prayers, pray for us!
St. Mother Teresa, who prayed to Our Lady of Medjugorje daily, pray for us!

All you holy men and women, pray for us!

  1. I love your posts, Janet! Each one is a prayer in itself, and lifts the veil of heaven to let us have a glimpse of our true home!

  2. Thank you so much for your reply and kind words! Saying each of my posts is a prayer touched me deeply, because that's exactly how I feel. Each one is written as a prayer and is a gift of God for me – and I'm so grateful they are for you as well! Thank you again and God bless you, Melanie!
