Mary has been appearing at Medjugorje for 33 years – UPDATED

NOTE:  When I originally wrote this now deleted blog, I was having a Senior Moment and got the dates wrong.  Because I sent this wrong information out in an email, I am leaving this note here in case anyone tries to use the URL.  I redid the work and posted a correct (and expanded) version @ https://polination.wordpress.com/2014/04/20/is-marys-medjugorje-timeline-related-to-jesus-first-coming/.

  1. Hmmmm . . .

    Trying to not “anticipate” too much. . . just in case we’re wrong. I’d rather be kinda surprised than kinda disappointed. . . (It’s like a birthday, yanno? I’d rather be walloped with a surprise party, then feel like everyone forgot.)

      I hate surprises, so I’m going with cautiously excited expectation. 🙂

        I was really struck by the fact that Pope Francis moved the “Pope hears public confessions” day up by three weeks from its traditional Good Friday.

        So I hope all y’all get to Confession soon, if you haven’t already. And if you’re not Catholic, take a day off to fast and pray and really clean out the old spiritual closet with the Lord.

        • Yep. I’ve made a calander appt to go this Saturday. And there’s a been a lot more prayer (although, that’s partially due to actually following through on my Lenten desire to increase prayer-time).

          Chrissy, your advice via your Roadmap for Spiritual Growth has been a great help in getting me ready to go back to Confession. So much of the time, I go through the examination lists and go “Nope, nope, nope. . . what am I supposed to confess if I haven’t been a complete b*tch to someone?” But looking at it from the other side, I can now say “Ah, yes, Self- Contempt. That’s a biggie!”

          So, thank you for that!

          • Because, it turns out, that “Self-Contempt” is a way of being a complete and unmitigated b*tch to oneself. . . and oneself is still “somebody”

      • I like “happy surprises”, lol, like surprise parties. I don’t like surprises like: pick something up, or open a door, and “Surprise!Spider Greeting!” *shudders* hate those, lol 😆

          I don’t even like happy surprises. I think it’s part of PTSD. Anything that is unexpected makes me panic and feel all “fox caught in bear trap” ish.

          • That’s one of the hardest things for people to “get” about PTSD or any other trauma-related condition. Good news can cause even more anxiety than bad news. When you’re used to suffering, bad news is expected. Good news holds out a forbidden promise of deliverance that can launch too many questions and expectations. Like all earthly suffering, it is temporary, thank God. Hope remains good and true, though the details of our hope elude us. But “spider greetings,” we’re stuck with. I got no answer for those. 😉
