[ANNOUNCER]

Speaker:

The subject matter contained in this presentation

Speaker:

is based on Biblical principles and designed

Speaker:

to give you accurate and authoritative information

Speaker:

with regard to the subject matter covered.

Speaker:

It is provided with the understanding

Speaker:

that neither the presenter nor the broadcaster

Speaker:

is engaged to render legal, accounting,

Speaker:

or other professional advice.

Speaker:

Since your situation is fact-dependent,

Speaker:

you may wish to additionally seek

Speaker:

the services of an appropriately licensed legal, accounting,

Speaker:

real estate, or investment professional.

Speaker:

"No one can serve two masters.

Speaker:

He will either hate the one and love the other,

Speaker:

or be devoted to one and despise the other.

Speaker:

You cannot serve God and mammon.

Speaker:

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life--

Speaker:

what you shall eat or drink--

Speaker:

or about your body-- what you will wear.

Speaker:

Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?

Speaker:

"Look at the birds in the sky.

Speaker:

They do not sow or reap.

Speaker:

They gather nothing into barns, yet your Heavenly Father

Speaker:

feeds them.

Speaker:

Are not you more important than they?

Speaker:

Can any of you, by worrying, add a single moment

Speaker:

to your life span?

Speaker:

"Why are you anxious about clothes?

Speaker:

Learn from the way the wildflowers grow.

Speaker:

They do not work or spin.

Speaker:

But I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour

Speaker:

was clothed like one of them.

Speaker:

If God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today

Speaker:

and is thrown into the oven tomorrow,

Speaker:

will He not much more provide for you,

Speaker:

oh you of little faith?

Speaker:

"So do not worry and say, what are we to eat?

Speaker:

Or what shall we drink?

Speaker:

Or what are we to wear?

Speaker:

All these things the pagans seek.

Speaker:

Your Heavenly Father knows that you need them all.

Speaker:

"But seek first the Kingdom of God

Speaker:

and His righteousness, and all these things

Speaker:

will be given you besides.

Speaker:

Do not worry about tomorrow.

Speaker:

Tomorrow will take care of itself.

Speaker:

Sufficient for a day is its own evil."

[SONG:

"O HOLY NIGHT"]

[SONG:

[INSTRUMENTAL]

[SONG:

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining.

[SONG:

It is the night of our dear Savior's Birth.

[SONG:

Long lay the world in sin and error pining, till He appeared

[SONG:

and the soul felt its worth.

[SONG:

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices.

[SONG:

For yonder brings a new and glorious morn.

[SONG:

Fall on your knees.

[SONG:

Oh hear the angel voices.

[SONG:

O night divine, O night when Christ was born.

[SONG:

Truly He taught us to love one another.

[SONG:

His law is love and His gospel is peace.

[SONG:

Chains shall He break, for the slave is our brother.

[SONG:

And in His Name all oppression shall cease.

[SONG:

Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we.

[SONG:

Let all within us praise His holy Name.

[SONG:

Fall on your knees.

[SONG:

Oh hear the angel voices.

[SONG:

O night divine, O night when Christ was born.

[SONG:

Fall, fall on your knees.

[SONG:

Oh hear the angel voices.

[SONG:

O night divine, O night when Christ was born.

[SONG:

O night divine, O night, O night divine.

[SONG:

[INSTRUMENTAL]

[SONG:

[A FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]

[SONG:

"Chains shall he break, for the slave is our brother.

[SONG:

And in His Name all oppression shall cease."

[SONG:

Those of you tonight on this Christmas Eve

[SONG:

in states that have locked you down,

[SONG:

can be very depressing, whether you're

[SONG:

in the states, in the United States,

[SONG:

with its criminal rules, or whether you're

[SONG:

in England, locked down, or Italy and different countries.

[SONG:

None of us could have imagined last Christmas

[SONG:

all the things that's assailing us this Christmas.

[SONG:

And everybody is in wonder.

[SONG:

But we had a prophetic message from Our Lady last Christmas,

[SONG:

December 25, 2019, through Jakov.

[SONG:

And She said,

[SONG:

"through prayer with the heart, faith and works

[SONG:

you will come to know what it means to live

[SONG:

a sincere Christian life"

[SONG:

People are praying right now, more so than last year.

[SONG:

They're becoming more sincere.

[SONG:

Our Lady continued,

[SONG:

"Often times, children, darkness, pain and crosses

[SONG:

overwhelm your hearts.

[SONG:

Do not waver in faith and ask 'why'

[SONG:

because you think that you are alone and abandoned"

[SONG:

And many tonight are.

[SONG:

Many are breaking the rules and celebrating Christmas.

[SONG:

But for those in localities that's

[SONG:

more severe in enforcing this, you feel abandoned.

[SONG:

Our Lady continues,

[SONG:

"Instead, open your hearts, pray and believe firmly and then

[SONG:

your heart will feel God's nearness

[SONG:

and that God never abandons youHe

[SONG:

is beside you at every moment.

[SONG:

Through prayer and faith, God will answer your every 'why'

[SONG:

and transform yourpain, darkness and cross into light"

[SONG:

The Church is suffering now.

[SONG:

People are suffering.

[SONG:

People are scared.

[SONG:

We have no precedent for the situations

[SONG:

we find ourselves in.

[SONG:

In the Nine Days Before Christmas Novena, many of you

[SONG:

who may be praying, last night's meditation

[SONG:

of the fifth Luminous Mystery, it states,

[SONG:

"The most beastly man, at least once in his life,

[SONG:

will have experienced seeing a baby that

[SONG:

brought a smile to his face and a joy in his heart"

[SONG:

And the meditation continues,

[SONG:

"The sorrow surrounding the Last Supper is to be cancelled

[SONG:

by the Institution of the Eucharist.

[SONG:

When sorrow engulfs you through life's situations,

[SONG:

approach the altar, knowing the little Baby

[SONG:

born 2,000 years ago, Who embraced the shepherds' hearts,

[SONG:

is about to embrace you at that moment.

[SONG:

If the most beastly, hardened man can be moved,

[SONG:

how much more can we, as we receive Him from the altar?

[SONG:

Be relieved of your burdens and sorrows and receive joy."

[SONG:

And how do we receive that?

[SONG:

From the Eucharist.

[SONG:

From Jesus.

[SONG:

I've got an ancient book about wisdom statements.

[SONG:

One of them says,

[SONG:

"When man ceases to wonder, God's secrets

[SONG:

remain unrevealed."

[SONG:

There is so much to be reveled, and that's

[SONG:

why Our Lady's here, because we, as modern man,

[SONG:

do not see what can't be seen, because we wonder no more.

[SONG:

We have the answers.

[SONG:

We follow the culture, all those things affecting the world,

[SONG:

and we block God from revealing to us secrets.

[SONG:

In this book, it also says, about the spiritual realm

[SONG:

in the physical realm.

[SONG:

"The priest stands every morning upon the shores

[SONG:

of the eternal world."

[SONG:

What is he saying?

[SONG:

He's saying, when he's holding up the Eucharist,

[SONG:

he's standing on the earth, and he raises up the Host.

[SONG:

He's entered into the spiritual realm.

[SONG:

Both places.

[SONG:

Going back to the quote, it says,

[SONG:

"We catch glimpses of the supernatural.

[SONG:

As we speak of the mystic words of the Mass,

[SONG:

the thin curtain between the two worlds

[SONG:

is blown aside for a moment, and we see, at least

[SONG:

briefly and dimly, what the Mass really means."

[SONG:

Many people are not going to Mass tonight or tomorrow,

[SONG:

but for those who are, you're going

[SONG:

to see something in both realms, the spiritual and the physical.

[SONG:

That's what happens at Mass.

[SONG:

But if you look at it in wonder, it's not unrevealed.

[SONG:

The closest we can get to Jesus and the Baby Jesus

[SONG:

is the Eucharist.

[SONG:

And the writing says, after you receive your Communion,

[SONG:

leaving the altar, quote,

[SONG:

"When we come away from the altar, returning,

[SONG:

so to speak, from the other world to this,

[SONG:

it is our duty and our privilege to convey,

[SONG:

at least to try to convey to people

[SONG:

what we have seen and heard."

[SONG:

That's the mystery of the Eucharist,

[SONG:

especially at Christmas.

[SONG:

And if you're not able to go because of lockdown,

[SONG:

you can do Spiritual Communions.

[SONG:

On December 2, 2015, Our Lady said,

[SONG:

"Through love, Jesus seeks unity between Heaven and earth"

[SONG:

Wow.

[SONG:

Heaven is the spiritual and earth is physical.

[SONG:

And then She repeats that in a different way, not the heavens

[SONG:

or the earth, but the family.

[SONG:

"unity between Heaven and earth"

[SONG:

And then She says,

[SONG:

"between the Heavenly Father and you, my children"

[SONG:

Do you see this pattern?

[SONG:

God is bringing the spiritual realm

[SONG:

to the physical realm and the physical realm

[SONG:

to the spiritual realm.

[SONG:

In this blessed time we're in, the unity is through Our Lady.

[SONG:

Our Lady comes every day from the spiritual realm

[SONG:

into the physical realm.

[SONG:

But She's not in the spiritual realm.

[SONG:

She is physically in front of Marija.

[SONG:

Marija can touch Her.

[SONG:

Our Lady can kiss Marija.

[SONG:

She's done that.

[SONG:

Marija has hugged Our Lady.

[SONG:

How can Our Lady be supernatural,

[SONG:

transfigured in Her Body, and be physically touched?

[SONG:

This is what is being said.

[SONG:

"Jesus seeks unity between Heaven and earth"

[SONG:

We are living something that has never happened before.

[SONG:

So, take that joy, because Mary and Joseph

[SONG:

were in a bad situation, a situation,

[SONG:

today, that is condemned.

[SONG:

We've got a mindset of people in poverty

[SONG:

are put there by other people.

[SONG:

You have all these voices, "We've got to do the poor."

[SONG:

We have the social justice thing,

[SONG:

which is nothing about justice.

[SONG:

Actually, it is injustice.

[SONG:

Whether we're rich, middle class, poor, or out

[SONG:

on the streets, we're alive.

[SONG:

We have life.

[SONG:

It struck me very strongly of the terrible situation

[SONG:

that Mary and Joseph were in, that in their poverty,

[SONG:

in their rejection, no place to stay,

[SONG:

Our Lady had the joy of Jesus.

[SONG:

What was the opinion of Heaven of this sad situation?

[SONG:

The opinion of man, today, in that situation is bad.

[SONG:

But that's not what was looked at.

[SONG:

We know the opinion of Heaven because the heavens were

[SONG:

filled with angels rejoicing!

[SONG:

We have to have the view of Heaven

[SONG:

on everything, because what many people think is bad is not.

[SONG:

It's good.

[SONG:

And what many people think is good is bad.

[SONG:

We're in times of reflection, of thoughtfulness, contemplation.

[SONG:

We have to look at ourselves, our nation, our world.

[SONG:

We're in this situation because of our sins.

[SONG:

They have matured into physical things that's

[SONG:

harmful to us, that is dark, even overwhelming, more than we

[SONG:

can handle.

[SONG:

But in Jakov's message last Christmas,

[SONG:

it's all for the purpose to bring us joy.

[SONG:

And that's why Our Lady said, "God will answerevery 'why'"

[SONG:

All these things you're seeing here at Christmas,

[SONG:

you're going to get the answer.

[SONG:

"Through prayer and faith, God will answer your every 'why'

[SONG:

and transform your every pain, darkness and cross into light"

[SONG:

If you're going into the light, it will be joy.

[SONG:

So, we're all suffering difficulties.

[SONG:

We're going through birth pains because something

[SONG:

is about to be birthed, and it may be much more darker

[SONG:

than it is at this moment.

[SONG:

But for us as Christians, make every night a holy night.

[SONG:

Never go to bed without consecrations

[SONG:

to the Immaculate Heart and the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

[SONG:

Live holy night, not just Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.

[SONG:

Every day is to be Christmas, because we

[SONG:

have our Deliverer, the Son of God,

[SONG:

coming tomorrow in the arms of Our Lady.

[SONG:

Contemplate these things.

[SONG:

I'd like to end with these ancient writings that

[SONG:

speaks prophetically about Our Lady coming today.

[SONG:

"Brighter than the eastern skies at daybreak,

[SONG:

with fancied roses, the unblemished moon,

[SONG:

before the moon begins to fade on Heaven's blue coast,

[SONG:

Thy image falls to earth, and man will kneel before Her."

[SONG:

Tomorrow's the 25th.

[SONG:

We will be broadcasting Monday, discussing serious things

[SONG:

as we approach the first of the year.

[SONG:

We wish you a very, very hope-filled Christmas,

[SONG:

knowing that you can have the nearness of Jesus to you.

[SONG:

We wish you Our Lady.

[SONG:

We love you.

[SONG:

Good night.
