"Dear children! Today, I am calling you to prayer. May prayer be life to
you. Only in this way will your heart be filled with peace and joy. God will
be near you and you will feel Him in your heart as a friend. You will speak
with Him as with someone whom you know and, little children, you will have a
need to witness, because Jesus will be in your heart and you, united in Him.
I am with you and love all of you with my motherly love. Thank you for
having responded to my call. "
"Dear children, the Holy Spirit, according to the Heavenly Father, made me
the mother - the mother of Jesus - and by this alone, also your mother. That
is why I am coming to hear you, that I may open my motherly arms to you; to
give you my heart and to call you to remain with me, because from the top of
the cross my Son entrusted you to me. Unfortunately, many of my children
have not come to know the love of my Son; many of them do not want to come
to know Him. Oh, my children, how much bad is done by those who must see or
interpret in order to come to believe. That is why, you, my children, my
apostles, in the silence of your heart, listen to the voice of my Son, so
that your heart may be His home, that it may not be dark and sad, but that
it may be illuminated with the light of my Son. Seek hope with faith,
because faith is the life of the soul. Anew I am calling you: pray, pray to
live faith in humility, in spiritual peace, and illuminated by the light. My
children, do not strive to comprehend everything immediately, because I also
did not comprehend everything immediately; but I loved, and I believed in
the divine words which my Son spoke - He who was the first light and the
beginning of redemption. Apostles of my love - you who pray, sacrifice
yourselves, love and do not judge - you go and spread the truth, the words
of my Son, the Gospel, because you are the living Gospel; you are the rays
of the light of my Son. My Son and I will be with you to encourage you and
to test you. My children, always implore the blessing of those, and only of
those whose hands have been blessed by my Son, of your shepherds. Thank

Expect a Miracle
By June Klins
It was a big leap of faith to bring a movie to our city, sight
unseen, but I could not say “no” to the inspiration I got on my
June 2016 pilgrimage to Medjugorje. Sr. Claire Marie, who has
a special gift of knowledge, told us to bring Apparition Hill, and
I felt this was a confirmation of something that had already
been laid on my heart. It was already in the works when I
arrived home, thanks to one of my friends who volunteered
to take this on. The date was set for September 15, the feast of
Our Lady of Sorrows.
I expected a surge of ticket orders after I wrote about it in our August newsletter. But that did not happen. Most days there were no orders or, at most, one. I truly thought that at least our local subscribers would show more interest.
On August 11th, I attended a Mass for healing, and I was
granted permission to bring flyers for the movie. I promised to
pick up the extras before I went home. When I went to retrieve
the remaining flyers, there was a pile of pennies sitting on
the flyers. It is no secret that I find pennies often. I call them
“pennies from Heaven.” Sometimes they seem to be a “kiss”
from Heaven, and sometimes they are a sign to trust – “In
God we trust.” I usually find one at a time, maybe two, but
never a pile like this one. I took them with me to show some of
my friends and they agreed they were meant for me. (I always
donate them to charity when I get enough to cash them in.)
As a retired math teacher, I am attuned to numbers, so when I got home, I counted the coins. There were 30 pennies + 2 nickels + 1 coin that I thought was a Chuck E. Cheese token. So the number of “coins” was 33 – a number which is associated with Jesus. The pennies and nickels added up to 40 cents – a number associated with a time of waiting. So the message I got from the coins was to wait and Jesus would help us fill the theater for our movie.
A couple of days later, something made me look at the coin which I thought was a Chuck E. Cheese token. Imagine my surprise when I saw the word “Cinemark” on it! It was a game token from the movie theater where our movie would be playing! What are the odds of that???!!!
As expected from my sign about “waiting,” tickets sales continued to trickle in a little at a time. Four days before the showing, we still had 65 seats left out of 314. Not bad, but we were hoping to fill more seats. I was in awe, therefore, during the few days left before our movie, when God suddenly put people in my life I had not seen in years – people who wanted to see this movie once I invited them!
We were not allowed to sell tickets at the door, so we took orders on the phone and trusted them to send the money in later. Hours before the movie was to be shown, when I grabbed what I thought was an empty envelope to put a lastminute ticket in for someone, I found in it a little cloth that said, “Expect a Miracle.” There was a hand-written note with it that said the cloth had been touched to a relic of the True Cross. I had picked up these envelopes at church where people leave items for people to take for free, but I thought all the envelopes were empty. I love how God speaks to us in these unique ways!
My Bible calendar verse for that day read: ‘It will come to pass in the last days,’ God says, ‘that I will pour out a portion of my spirit upon all flesh. Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions…’ (Acts 2:17). How appropriate was that for a movie about apparitions???!!!
As predicted on August 11th, our movie showing turned out to be very successful. Based on leftover tickets, we had 300 attendees! The comments I heard from those exiting the theater were all very affirming. They loved the movie and were deeply moved. Whether that was the “miracle” I was to expect, or there is more to come, remains to be seen.
The next day, I continued to receive positive messages about the movie. A teacher wrote: “That movie was absolutely phenomenal.” A man wrote: “That was an awesome movie. I never cried so much during one movie.” One lady, who drove 1 ½ hours to see it, is going to bring it to her city now! This film was more than I ever expected!
We were blessed to have one of the cast
members, Jill Mazowiecki, at our screening.
She shared with us that it’s possible this
movie could be nominated for an Academy
Award! That would help spread Our Lady’s
messages to a lot more people, so please pray
and fast for this. Also financial help is needed.

A few days after the movie, another person who was bringing the movie to his area shared with me his concern about his slow tickets sales. When I was writing to him about our experience, it dawned on me that there were exactly 40 days in between the day our August newsletters containing information about the movie were delivered locally and the day of the movie!
Another little God-incidence was that the ticket number printed (purposely) on all movie tickets was M05131917, which represents the date for the first apparition at Fatima on 5/13/1917. What is interesting is that we originally were scheduled to have Theater #5, but because the seating capacity was decreased when they remodeled that theater, they had to move us to the larger theater — Theater #13! Our Lady said that what She started in Fatima She would complete in Medjugorje! Let’s help this to happen and soon!
