This is the time of decision

... this is the latest message (21st February). I admit that we are a little puzzled by this message: "Dear children, day after day I have invited you to a re-awakening and to prayer in the Parish, but you have not responded. Today I invite you for the last time. Now that it is Lent: you may be moved into action for love of this call of mine. If you are not, I no longer wish to give you my messages. God allows me to do this. Thank you for responding to my call."

Marija only said what God's word asks of us. God's word always invites and leads us to crossroads where decisions are made. I understand this message in this sense: this is the time of decision. To begin with Our Lady asked for the Creed. The Creed means to make up one's mind. Our Lady urges once again at this time. It is a word which calls for decision: deciding for the Lord.

When Our Lady says "your Parish" , She does not think only of this Parish. For Her, Parish means the whole world.

Yesterday evening I prayed to the Lord: "Lord, perhaps tomorrow you will find someone who will listen to You : keep on speaking to him".

(Fr. Slavko Barbaric - 23rd February 1985)
