Do you sometimes get questioned about Medjugorje, on the lines of: “Why has Our Lady been appearing for so long? Why does she give so many messages? Why are the messages repetitive? Why does she have secrets? Why hasn’t the Church officially approved Medjugorje?


There is really a simple answer to all these and the many other questions we get asked about Medjugorje from time to time – and found in one of Our Lady’s messages.


She says: Dear children, I want you to comprehend that God has chosen each one of you, in order to use you in his great plan for the salvation of mankind. January 25, 1987


That, in a nutshell, is the answer to any question about Medjugorje. We are being called to be part of God’s saving plan.


But like all plans, even God’s can get waylaid at times. Something or someone gets in the way of fulfilment. Our Blessed Mother points the finger at Satan, saying he also has a plan, a plan to disrupt God’s plan of salvation. satan produces a counter-plan, even a plan that sometimes may resemble the plan that God has, an imitation, a copy with all the lights and trimmings to attract us to want to be part of this plan.


In her messages from Medjugorje Our Lady warns her children about Satan’s plan of disruption and asks us to pray that his plan will not be realised.


God shares his plan with his Blessed Mother and each of us, but never with Satan. His plan is not designed for Satan’s glory, only for the glory of God and for us to share in that glory. But Satan seeks glory as well and, because he is a thief, sets out to steal God’s plan for himself. That’s why Satan’s work can end up for the glory of God anyway. It wasn’t his plan in the first place. He just hijacks it. We are the fabric of God’s plan. We belong to God’s plan and not Satan’s. God created us as part of his plan. Satan didn’t. Satan may be powerful but he cannot “create” anything, only destroy. He is not the Creator.


Our Lady says that we are all important in God’s great plan which he leads through Medjugorje. He desires to convert the entire world and to call it to salvation and to the way towards himself, the beginning and end of every being. June 25, 2007


How can we thwart Satan in his effort to draw people away from God? The Blessed Mother says that this is achieved through prayer. She asks that we arm ourselves with prayer and fasting in this daily battle. This is the way she wants us to respond to her call.


And in God’s great plan he also has an individual plan for each of us. We all have a role. Sometimes we ask: What is you want of me, Lord? What is your plan for me? The plan unfurls with prayer. It is not possible to fulfil a role in God’s plan without prayer.


So the plan for today and every other day, among all the daily dozens of calls life and the world make on us,  has to be to allocate a time and a place for prayer.


Our Lady makes it very clear how important it is for God’s plan to be realised through prayer.


Dear children! Today again I am calling you to pray. You, dear children, are not able to understand how great the value of prayer is as long as you yourselves do not say: 'now is the time for prayer, now nothing else is important to me, now not one person is important to me but God.' Dear children, consecrate yourselves to prayer with a special love so that God will be able to render graces back to you. Thank you for having responded to my call. October 2, 1986


As to how and where to pray we can take out lead from Jesus... One of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us how to pray.” Jesus responded: “When you pray, go into your private room and, when you shut your door, pray to your Father who is that secret place, and your Father who sees all that is done in secret will reward you.” Matthew 6 : 6


Our Lady also teaches that all answers can be found in prayer. Nothing is hidden in heaven; everything is brought to light. That’s the plan.
