On February 20, 2015 the Virgin Mary gave a third message to Ivan Dragicevic. All three consecutive messages stated “peace is in danger”:


“Dear children! Today I invite you to pray for peace, peace is in danger, pray more, pray with the heart. The Mother prays with you and I intercede before my Son for all of you. Thank you, dear children, because also today you have responded to my call.”

I find it interesting that four days later an article was published in the National Catholic Register, by Edward Pentin, reporting serious concerns regarding the British parliament voting on February 3rd, in favor of the creation of babies with the DNA of two women and one man. The United Kingdom is going to make ‘genetically modified babies’ that’s right folks, they’re making babies from three people, of course for a good cause, but doesn’t it always start out that way? and if that were not enough, this week ISIS has reportedly kidnaped at least 220 Syrian Christians. This morning three American men were caught trying to join ISIS. They exposed their plans to hijack a plane diverting it to the Islamic State. They planned on joining the military solely to attack our soldiers. They also talked about killing our U.S. Law enforcements, bombing Coney Island, and threatening to cause harm to our President. It is great that they were caught, but how many were not? What other plans are taking place as you read this that we do not know about?

IMG_2405I take Mary’s warning serious and I think we all should. It’s time to take out our rosary’s and pray for peace, security and safety. We think these things can not happen in America, but it can, remember 9-11 and the still missing Malaysia plane with 3 Americans and 7 children on board. We need protection for our families, our Country, and our global world. Why aren’t we praying for this in our churches? Perhaps, each of us can ask our pastor to add this prayer to the petitions. Or contact the Liturgy and Worship office of our Diocese to add it on Sundays too. We could ask all parish ministry’s to also pray many of our parishes have Rosarians, prayer groups, scripture studies, respect for life groups, etc. We can make a difference if we decide to unite in prayer.

In Fatima, Mary was warning us of danger and threats too.  Pope John Paul II took her seriously and invited everyone to pray hard, people did and we were spared. I have copied a piece of the consecration he made for all men and women to her Immaculate Heart. I thought it would make a great meditation and prayer during Lent. You can read the whole Fatima message by clicking on Vatican. TOGETHER LET US PRAY TO BRING ABOUT PEACE!

In order to respond more fully to the requests of “Our Lady”, the Holy Father desired to make more explicit during the Holy Year of the Redemption the Act of Entrustment of 7 May 1981, which had been repeated in Fatima on 13 May 1982. On 25 March 1984 in Saint Peter’s Square, while recalling the fiat uttered by Mary at the Annunciation, the Holy Father, in spiritual union with the Bishops of the world, who had been “convoked” beforehand, entrusted all men and women and all peoples to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, in terms which recalled the heartfelt words spoken in 1981: 

“O Mother of all men and women, and of all peoples, you who know all their sufferings and their hopes, you who have a mother’s awareness of all the struggles between good and evil, between light and darkness, which afflict the modern world, accept the cry which we, moved by the Holy Spirit, address directly to your Heart. Embrace with the love of the Mother and Handmaid of the Lord, this human world of ours, which we entrust and consecrate to you, for we are full of concern for the earthly and eternal destiny of individuals and peoples. 

In a special way we entrust and consecrate to you those individuals and nations which particularly need to be thus entrusted and consecrated. 

‘We have recourse to your protection, holy Mother of God!’  Despise not our petitions in our necessities”. 

The Pope then continued more forcefully and with more specific references, as though commenting on the Message of Fatima in its sorrowful fulfillment

“Behold, as we stand before you, Mother of Christ, before your Immaculate Heart, we desire, together with the whole Church, to unite ourselves with the consecration which, for love of us, your Son made of himself to the Father: ‘For their sake’, he said, ‘I consecrate myself that they also may be consecrated in the truth’ (Jn 17:19). We wish to unite ourselves with our Redeemer in this his consecration for the world and for the human race, which, in his divine Heart, has the power to obtain pardon and to secure reparation. 

The power of this consecration lasts for all time and embraces all individuals, people and nations. It overcomes every evil that the spirit of darkness is able to awaken, and has in fact awakened in our times, in the heart of man and in his history. 

How deeply we feel the need for the consecration of humanity and the world—our modern world—in union with Christ himself! For the redeeming work of Christ must be shared in by the world through the Church. 

The present Year of the Redemption shows this: the special Jubilee of the whole Church. 

Above all creatures, may you be blessed, you, the Handmaid of the Lord, who in the fullest way obeyed the divine call! 

Hail to you, who are wholly united to the redeeming consecration of your Son! 

Mother of the Church! Enlighten the People of God along the paths of faith, hope, and love! Enlighten especially the peoples whose consecration and entrustment by us you are awaiting. Help us to live in the truth of the consecration of Christ for the entire human family of the modern world. 

In entrusting to you, O Mother, the world, all individuals, and peoples, we also entrust to you this very consecration of the world, placing it in your motherly Heart. 

Immaculate Heart! Help us to conquer the menace of evil, which so easily takes root in the hearts of the people of today, and whose immeasurable effects already weigh down upon our modern world and seem to block the paths towards the future! 

From famine and war, deliver us. 

From nuclear war, from incalculable self-destruction, from every kind of war, deliver us. 

From sins against the life of man from its very beginning, deliver us. 

From hatred and from the demeaning of the dignity of the children of God, deliver us. 

From every kind of injustice in the life of society, both national and international, deliver us. 

From readiness to trample on the commandments of God, deliver us. 

From attempts to stifle in human hearts the very truth of God, deliver us. 

From the loss of awareness of good and evil, deliver us. 

From sins against the Holy Spirit, deliver us, deliver us. 

Accept, O Mother of Christ, this cry laden with the sufferings of all individual human beings, laden with the sufferings of whole societies. 

Help us with the power of the Holy Spirit to conquer all sin: individual sin and the ‘sin of the world’, sin in all its manifestations. 

Let there be revealed, once more, in the history of the world the infinite saving power of the Redemption: the power of merciful Love! May it put a stop to evil ! May it transform consciences! May your Immaculate Heart reveal for all the light of Hope!”.(4)

  1. Our Blessed Mother is calling us to repentance, conversion and prayer. – Deep prayer not just reciting words.
    The power of the Rosary has brought many victories over the years, including saving Western civilization several times against Islamic invasion – for example, the battle of Lepanto – Oct. 7, 1571.
