On January 25, 2023, Our Lady of Medjugorje pleaded with us, “Dear children! Pray with me for peace, because Satan wants war and hatred in hearts and peoples. Therefore, pray and sacrifice your days by fasting and penance, that God may give you peace. The future is at a crossroads, because modern man does not want God. That is why mankind is heading to perdition. You, little children, are my hope. Pray with me, that what I began in Fatima and here may be realized. Be prayer and witness peace in your surroundings, and be people of peace. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
The Culture of Death, as St. John Paul II called it, is attacking the most fundamental truths of the natural law and of God’s law by legalizing choices regarding: God’s creation of only two sexes, men and women; God’s institution of marriage, only between a man and a woman; and the dignity of all human life from conception to natural death.The Culture of Death says that you can choose a false sex that is the opposite of your created sex; that you can choose the false marriage of two people of the same sex; that you can choose to kill your pre-born child by abortion; and that you can choose to kill yourself in a so-called “physician-assisted suicide.”
In 2023, the world seems to be growing darker, continuing to leave the true light that is only to be found in Jesus through the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Era of Peace. Jesus said that He is “the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness.” (John 8:12). Jesus is the only remedy to bring a Culture of Life and a Civilization of Love. He is the Prince of Peace and the only one who can bring us peace through the intercession and mediation of Our Lady, Queen of Peace.

In the 17th century, at Quito, Ecuador, the Blessed Virgin Mary prophesied to Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres that during the 20th century, “The vices of impurity, blasphemy, and sacrilege will dominate in this time of depraved desolation.”
In order to mitigate chastisement prophecies for the 20th century, God sent His Mother Mary to earth throughout the 20th century to warn humanity to either repent, convert, have faith, and pray, especially the Rosary, or to suffer from chastisements. However, humanity has followed the bad example of Adam and Eve, and, in pride and disobedience, disobeyed God and brought chastisements upon the world. Modern disobedience has brought chastisements such as the Second World War and Communist revolutions that caused the deaths of over 150 million people.
The third millennium ushered in the chastisements of the 9/11 Attack on America; the Indian Ocean tsunami; Hurricane Katrina; the Haitian earthquake; the Japanese earthquake/tsunami; militant jihadist Muslim terrorist attacks throughout the world; wildfires, mass killings, looting and rioting in the United States; and the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2020, during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Father Marinko Sakota, a parish priest in Medjugorje said, “It is very important to listen to what Our Lady said to us in a message during that time. She said, ‘I would like to guide you in the way of salvation, return to my son Jesus, return to prayer and fasting. Do not be afraid.’’’
Jesus sent His mother to Medjugorje as the Queen of Peace to plead for repentance, conversions, prayer, fasting, and peace. However, too few have responded to stay the hand of Divine Justice which is falling upon the world. The world is reaping the fruits of its obstinate and sinful ways.
This is the time of the Ten Secrets. Father Livio Fanzaga, Director of Radio Maria in Medjugorje, once said, “I believe that the time of secrets coincides with the 40th year of appearances.” 2021 was the 40th anniversary of the apparitions. So, now in 2023, God has extended the time of His mercy. WE ARE IN THE OVERTIME OF GOD’S MERCY, BUT SOON HIS JUSTICE WILL COME THROUGH THE TEN SECRETS AND THE CHASTISEMENTS.
WE NEED TO WAKE UP, lift our heads and see the signs all around us. It is for our own good that God will allow His justice to be poured out in order to awaken our consciences and correct our sinful behavior.
The late, authoritative theologian, Father Renée Laurentin, recorded Mirjana’s message of October 25, 1985, regarding “the realization of the first secret.” He wrote that Mirjana said that Mary “showed me, as in a film, the realization of the First Secret. The earth was desolate.”
[Mary said] “It is the upheaval of a region of the world.” “She was precise. I cried.” [Mary said] “In the world, there are so many sins. What can I do, if you do not help me? Remember, that I love you.”
So, let us help Mary! The choice is ours: to respond to Our Lady’s requests for repentance and conversions with the consequence of peace or to reject them and suffer the consequences of chastisements.
Let us pray and be prayerful and hopeful. Jesus and Mary are with us to save us. They are here for us and we must trust in their love for us. Stay close to Jesus in the holy Eucharist through His Immaculate Mother! The late Father Slavko Barbara, former Medjugorje parish priest, said, “The Madonna did not come to announce catastrophes, but more to help us avoid them. We all know that a nuclear war is possible, even without apparitions. If the house burns, it doesn’t burn because the mother cries ‘fire.’ On the contrary, the mother comes to save the house, which is burning. In that there is hope.”
In my interview of the visionary Mirjana Soldo, she told me, “I want to say one thing that is very important. Blessed Mary said, ‘What I started at Fatima, I will finish in Medjugorje. My heart will triumph.’…. We should think about the messages and what she asked for us, so that we can help her Immaculate Heart to triumph.”
Let us not forget that on July 13, 1917, Mary told the 3 children visionaries at Fatima, “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph…and a New Era of Peace will be granted to the world.” Mary said that peace is necessary for the salvation of the world and that she is the Queen of Peace. May her promised new Era of Peace come quickly!
Our Lady is preparing us for everything that is about to come into the world. She has trained us to prepare for the Ten Secrets and the Triumph of her Immaculate Heart. She told us, “We are now living in a time of grace, then will come the time of the secrets, followed by the triumph.” Let us confidently await in expectant hope for the prophesied Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Era of Peace.
