Catholics are known for our devotion to Mary. For good reason, the Mother of God was full of both grace and wisdom.  Did you know that Mary continues to speak to us today? We would like to share with you a collection of 10 messages from the Virgin Mary that we think every Catholic should know. Especially for those who are actively engaged in apostolic activity, a deep and personal relationship with Mary is an absolute must.

Let us never forget that Mary is considered to be the first disciple of Christ; she is therefore model, guide, and Mother to all those who wish to bring others to a new life in the Lord Jesus.

We invite you to take a moment to today to meditate on these words, to savour them, for they are full of mercy and love. Then take a moment and think of others that might benefit from hearing them, those who right now need in a special way some words of encouragement and consolation, and share these images with them so that they too might rejoice in their warmth.


A few words from Pope Francis:

Dear brothers and sisters! Jesus Christ is the blessing for every man and woman, and for all of humanity. The Church, in giving us Jesus, offers us the fullness of the Lord’s blessing. This is precisely the mission of the people of God: to spread to all peoples God’s blessing made flesh in Jesus Christ. And Mary, the first and most perfect disciple of Jesus, the first and most perfect believer, the model of the pilgrim Church, is the one who opens the way to the Church’s motherhood and constantly sustains her maternal mission to all mankind. Mary’s tactful maternal witness has accompanied the Church from the beginning. She, the Mother of God, is also the Mother of the Church, and through the Church, the mother of all men and women, and of every people.

  1. Jadnik vapi, i Gospodin ga čuje.

    Blagoslivljat ću Gospodina u svako doba,
    njegova će mi hvala biti svagda na ustima!
    Kušajte i vidite kako je dobar Gospodin;
    blago čovjeku koji se njemu utječe!

    Lice se Gospodnje okreće protiv zločinaca
    da im spomen zatre na zemlji.
    Pravednici zazivaju, i Gospodin ih čuje,
    izbavlja ih iz svih tjeskoba.

    Blizu je Gospodin onima koji su skršena srca,
    a klonule duše spasava.
    Mnoge nevolje ima pravednik,
    ali ga Gospodin iz svih izbavlja.

  2. Holy Mary mother of God pray for me. Pray for me that I may be shown mercy. Pray for my sister to be humbled to know how blessed she is. Please help with the selfishness of her heart. Please Mary help my nephew who follows in her footsteps.

  3. Hi brothers and sisters in Christ 🙂

    May I ask – with the 8th one, she said “in honour of Our Lady”, is Mary the same as Our Lady.. she did not say in honour of herself, i.e. in honour of me or in honour of I, Our Lady, how comes?

    • If you happen to read the whole story of the Fatima apparition, you will understand that when the Lady gave this message she has not yet revealed her true identity only during the last apparition where the solar miracle occurred.

  4. God Bless ln god we trust . THANKS ..For all the good you have give to million people around the world .Rest in Peace Love with warm condolences to the Family Friends .other relatives and share your grief and liss with real Love . From John Sweden

    isnt this confusing .. how can we sere two masters..If we are directly connected with God the Father through Jesus .. do we need another

    • We pray in Jesus name but we also ask our brothers and sisters to pray for us. Why? Do we need another?

      We don’t need another mediator between God and man, and there will be no other because only Jesus is both God and Man. We, Christians, however, participate in his mediation because we, as the Church, are the Body of Christ. His work is our work. We pray because we are part of him who is the High Priest before God.

  6. Since when is a mother considered as a master? A mother is always a caregiver, adviser, guide and one whose love has no conditions or boundaries. When we pray to Mother Mary, we don’t pray to her as a master but as a mother because our Master Jesus Himself gave her to us as our mother. And She tells us to do exactly as our Lord tells us to do. She does not tell us to do anything what Her Son has told us not to do. If you trust in Jesus then you trust in His Mother because He Himself gave her to us on the cross.
