Medjugorje Messages (2006)January 2, 2006 "Dear children! My Son was born. Your Savior is here with you. What prevents your hearts from receiving him? What is in them that is all false? Purify your hearts through fasting and prayer. Recognize my Son and receive him. True peace and true love - only he gives them to you. The path to Eternal Life, it is he, my Son! Thank you." (Mirjana 01/02/2006)
January 25, 2006"Dear children! Also today I call you to be carriers of the Gospel in your families. Do not forget, little children, to read Sacred Scripture. Put it in a visible place and witness with your life that you believe and live the Word of God. I am close to you with my love and intercede before my Son for each of you. Thank you for having responded to my call."
February 25, 2006"Dear children! In this Lenten time of grace, I call you to open your hearts to the gifts that God desires to give you. Do not be closed, but with prayer and renunciation say 'yes' to God and He will give to you in abundance. As in springtime the earth opens to the seed and yields a hundredfold, so also your heavenly Father will give to you in abundance. I am with you and love you, little children, with a tender love. Thank you for having responded to my call."
THE ANNUAL APPARITION OF OUR LADY TO MIRJANA DRAGICEVIC-SOLDO ON MARCH 18, 2006The visionary Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo had daily apparitions from June 24th 1981 to December 25th 1982. During the last daily apparition, Our Lady gave her the 10th secret, and told her that she would appear to her once a year, on the 18th of March. It has been this way through the years. This year several thousand pilgrims gathered to pray the Rosary at the Cenacolo Community in Medjugorje. The apparition lasted from 13:59 to 14:04 and Our Lady gave the following message:
"Dear children! In this Lenten time, I call you to interior renunciation. The way to this leads you through love, fasting, prayer and good works. Only with total interior renunciation will you recognize God!|s love and the signs of the time in which you live. You will be witnesses of these signs and will begin to speak about them. I desire to bring you to this. Thank you for having responded to me."
March 2, 2006Our Lady was so sad that she was in tears. She prayed for the unbelievers, whom Our Lady calls "those who do not yet know the love of God." She then prayed and blessed all the people present at the apparition and all of the religious articles that were among them. Our Lady spoke to Mirjana about the situation in the world and repeated three times:
"God is love! God is love! God is love! " (Mirjana 03/02/2006)

March 25, 2006"Courage, little children! I decided to lead you on the way of holiness. Renounce sin and set out on the way of salvation, the way which my Son has chosen. Through each of your tribulations and sufferings God will find the way of joy for you. Therefore, little children, pray. We are close to you with our love. Thank you for having responded to my call."
April 2, 2006"Dear children, I am coming to you because, with my own example, I wish to show you the importance of prayer for those who have not come to know the love of God. You ask yourself if you are following me. My children, do you not recognize the signs of the times? Do you not speak of them? Come follow me. As a mother I call you. Thank you for having responded." (Mirjana 04/02/2006)
April 25, 2006"Dear children! Also today I call you to have more trust in me and my Son. He has conquered by His death and resurrection and, through me, calls you to be a part of His joy. You do not see God, little children, but if you pray you will feel His nearness. I am with you and intercede before God for each of you. Thank you for having responded to my call."
May 2, 2006"Dear children, I am coming to you as a mother. I am coming with an open heart full of love for you, my children.

Open your hearts; I will lead you to this. Thank you! " (Mirjana 05/02/2006)
May 25, 2006"Dear children! Also today I call you to put into practice and to live my messages that I am giving you. Decide for holiness, little children, and think of heaven.

Little children, seek and work with all your strength for peace to win in your hearts and in the world. Thank you for having responded to my call."
June 2, 2006Our Lady blessed all of us who were present and all the religious articles that we brought with us for blessing. With a serious expression on her face, Our Lady emphasized again the priestly blessing. With pain and love at the same time Our Lady said:
"Remember, children of mine, that it is my Son blessing you. Do not accept it so lightly."
After that Our Lady told me about some things that are supposed to happen and she said:
"There is no way without my Son. Do not think that you will have peace and joy if you do not have him in the first place." (Mirjana 06/02/2006)
Mirjana said: I cannot say that Our Lady was sad or joyful; she was preoccupied, with loving care on her face.
June 25, 2006"Dear children! 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 merit eternal life. I am near you and thank all those who, through these 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."

September 2, 2006"You know that we have been gathering for me to help you to come to know the love of God. I am gathering you under my motherly mantle to help you to come to know God's love and his greatness. My children, God is great. Great are his works.

September 25, 2006"Dear children! Also today I am with you and call all of you to complete conversion. Decide for God, little children, and you will find in God the peace your heart seeks.

October 2, 2006"Dear children, I am coming to you in this your time, to direct the call to eternity to you. This is the call of love. I call you to love, because only through love will you come to know the love of God. Many think that they have faith in God and that they know his laws. They try to live according to them, but they do not do what is most important: they do not love him. My children, pray and fast. This is the way which will help you to open yourselves and to love. Only through love of God is eternity gained. I am with you. I will lead you with the motherly love. Thank you for having responded." (Mirjana 10/02/2006)
October 25, 2006"Dear children! Today the Lord permitted me to tell you again that you live in a time of grace. You are not conscious, little children, that God is giving you a great opportunity to convert and to live in peace and love. You are so blind and attached to earthly things and think of earthly life. God sent me to lead you toward eternal life. I, little children, am not tired, although I see that your hearts are heavy and tired for everything that is a grace and a gift. Thank you for having responded to my call."
November 2, 2006"Dear children, my coming to you, my children, is God's love. God is sending me to warn you and to show you the right way. Do not shut your eyes before the truth, my children. Your time is a short time. Do not permit delusions to begin to rule over you. The way on which I desire to lead you is the way of peace and love. This is the way which leads to my Son, your God. Give me your hearts that I may put my Son in them and make of you my apostles - apostles of peace and love. Thank you!" (Mirjana 11/02/2006)
Afterwards, in conclusion, Our Lady said for us not to forget our shepherds in our prayers.
November 25, 2006"Dear children! Also today I call you to pray, pray, pray. Little children, when you pray you are close to God and He gives you the desire for eternity. This is a time when you can speak more about God and do more for God. Therefore, little children, do not resist but permit Him to lead you, to change you and to enter into your life. Do not forget that you are travellers on the way toward eternity. Therefore, little children, permit God to lead you as a shepherd leads his flock. Thank you for having responded to my call."
December 2, 2006"Dear children, in this joyful time of expectation of my Son, I desire that all the days of your earthly life may be a joyful expectation of my Son. I am calling you to holiness.

December 25, 2006"Dear children! Also today I bring you the newborn Jesus in my arms. He who is the King of Heaven and earth, He is your peace.

Thank you for having responded to my call."
