Message of the Blessed Virgin Mary
May 25, 2021
"Dear children! Today I am looking at you and calling: return to God because, He is love and out of love has sent me to you to lead you on the way of conversion. Leave sin and evil, decide for holiness and joy will begin to reign; and you will be my extended hands in this lost world. I desire that you be prayer and hope to those who have not come to know the God of love. Thank you for having responded to my call. "
On February 17, 1989 Our Blessed Mother gave a message to Marija for the world to hear: "Dear Children, I seek your actions, not your words!" That message remains with her, in her heart.
"Be My Extended Hands"
Our Blessed Mother has established ‘Medjugorje Centers of Peace' throughout the United States and around the world. There are multiple centers in many states, they are responsible for spreading Our Lady's messages via phone, mail and media. Our own center was to take the name 'The Holy Family' and was established among the first few in the U. S A. Through prayer, our little group was given the word 'LOVE' to use, by Our Blessed Mother, as our phone number.
You can call 814-787-5683 (LOVE) to hear her message 24/7. She favored us as we are located at a town named after her — St Marys, PA. Our address is P.O. Box 442, St. Marys, PA 15857.

"Be My Extended Hands"
Susan, a resident of western Pennsylvania, has been associated with `Medjugorje in America' for over thirty years. Those on her extensive mailing list received this message after her return from Medjugorje, June 25, 2006.
I have just returned from the place where heaven touches the earth and I want you to know that I prayed for all your intentions while I was there. Enclosed is the 25th anniversary message given to Marija on June 25, 2006. For anyone who has prayed for Our Lady's intentions or has tried to live her message and shared them with others, this message is a great gift. Read it carefully and read it more than once. There is much said in it.
With great joy in my heart, I thank you for all the prayers that, in these days, you offered for my intentions, know, little children, that you will not regret it, neither you nor your children. God will reward you with great graces and you will earn eternal life. I am near you and thank all of those who, through the years have accepted my messages, have poured them into their life and decided for holiness and peace, Thank you for having responded to my call."
I was present at Ivanka's house when she had her yearly anniversary apparition June 25, 2006. When she came out of her room after the apparition, her face was glowing; she could not contain her joy. She told us Mary has spoken to her about the 7th Secret.
I took your petitions to Ivanka's home with me and she kept them during her apparition.
Each time I have gone to Medjugorje, when I arrive it seems like I have never left — I feel completely at home there. Thank you for your prayers. Susan
Mary Is 'The Handmaid of The Lord'
Mother Mary asks us to be her "Extended hands in this lost world." She asks us to `go out' and bring "those who do not yet know God's love" to her Son, Jesus.

This Great Sacrament of Love
A couple of months, before his death, Bishop Fulton J. Sheen was interviewed on national television. One of the questions was this:
"Bishop Sheen, you have inspired millions of people all over the world. Who inspired you? Was it a Pope?"
Bishop Sheen responded that it was not a Pope, a cardinal, another bishop, or even a priest or a nun. It was a little Chinese girl of eleven years of age. He explained that when the Communists took over China, they imprisoned a priest in his own rectory near the Church. After they locked him up in his own house, the priest was horrified to look out of his window and see the Communists proceed into the Church, where they went into the sanctuary and broke into the tabernacle. In an act of hateful desecration, they took the ciborium and threw it on the floor with all of the Sacred Hosts spilling out. The priest knew exactly how many Hosts were in the ciborium: thirty-two.
When the Communists left, they either did not notice, or didn't pay any attention to a small girl praying in the back of the Church, who saw everything that had happened.
That night the little girl came back. Slipping past the guard at the priest's house, she went inside the Church. There she made a holy hour of prayer, an act of love to make up for the act of hatred.
After her holy hour she went into the sanctuary, knelt down, bent over and with her tongue received Jesus in Holy Communion, (since it was not permissible for laymen to touch the Sacred Host with their hands.)
The little girl continued to come back each night in make her holy hour and receive Jesus in Holy Communion on her tongue. On the thirty-second night, after she had consumed the last and thirty-second host, she accidentally made a noise and woke the guard who was sleeping. He ran after her, caught her, and beat her to death with the butt of his rifle. This act of heroic martyrdom was witnessed by the priest as he watched grief-stricken from his bedroom window.
When Bishop Sheen heard the story he was so inspired that he promised God he would make a holy hour of prayer before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament everyday of his life.
If this frail, little child could give testimony and witness to the world concerning the real and wonderful Presence of her Savior in the Blessed Sacrament, then the Bishop was absolutely bound by all that was right and true, to do the same. His sole desire from then on was to bring the world to the burning Heart of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.
The little girl showed the Bishop what true courage and zeal really are; how faith could overcome all fear, how true love for Jesus in the Eucharist must transcend life itself.
What is hidden in the Sacred Host is the glory of His love. The sun in the sky is symbolic of the Son of God in the Blessed Sacrament. This is why most monstrances are in the form of a sunburst. As the sun is the natural source of all energy, the Blessed Sacrament is the supernatural source of all grace and love. The Blessed Sacrament is JESUS, the Light of the world.
We Honor Her Immaculate Heart Sat. June 12
In 1987 Pope John Paul II declared a Marian Year. Soon after prayers for a Marian Shrine dedicated to Our Lady of Fatima at St Joseph's church in Force, PA were initiated and the beautiful shrine became a reality September 14, 1990.
Also that year 'signs and wonders' led a prayer group to pray in a remote area known as Mt. Zion, which in Scripture can mean God's dwelling place. Father John 'Ted' Carter was called in by local clergy as he was the head of Mystical Theology in our Erie Diocese. Through his Spiritual Direction it was discerned the Lord wanted a Cross put up in a very scenic location. The Cross on The Hill was erected on Aug 27, 1990 just two years after the end of the Marian year which ended on August 15, 1988 Feast of the Assumption.
The Cross on The Hill is related directly to Our Blessed Mother's apparitions in Medjugorje.
Ivan, one of the six visionaries, has spent some time at The Cross. Fr. Carter exclaimed when The Cross was erected that, 'what many experience in Medjugorje will also happen here at The Cross. Our Blessed Mother will be with her Son here as well."
Thousands of families visit The Cross each year - it is ecumenical- 'The Cross is a gift of love for all faiths.'
The Cross is owned by the small prayer group 'The Holy Family' and led by Spiritual Direction of the Pastor of St. Joseph's in Force, PA. currently Fr. Mark Mastrian,
To: "Help Expand The Cross on the Hill"
A GoFundMe Link has been established it is—gofund.me/49170644
This action is necessary to protect The Cross as it exists today.
We will increase this property from 1 to 10 acres allowing for more parking area, a memorial for pre born infants (individual plaques), and a 'Chapel of Reconciliation' between God and Man - church and church.
The Cross was established in 1990. We have been a 501C3 tax deductible for many years.
You can help simply by sending a tax deductible check to: The Holy Family P.O. Box 442, St. Marys PA. 15857-0442
Scenic Walkways and trails will be greatly enhanced.
'Dear Children! You are my strength. You, my apostles, who with your love, humility and silence of prayer are making it possible for one to come to know my son. You live In me. You carry me in your heart. You know that you have a mother who loves you and who has come to bring love. I am looking at you in the Heavenly Father - your thoughts, your pains, your sufferings-and I offer them to my son. Do not be afraid and do not lose hope.
