Honor the Mother of God, Honor Our Mother
On the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, a week before the December 13, 1993 monthly apparition, Jesus said, “When you honor My Mother, you honor Me. Remember those words.”
In the monthly apparition, the Blessed Mother said, “It is the will of the Father that I be honored as He has declared. I am the Mediatrix of all graces. The world does not want to proclaim this. It is a very important doctrine from God. The children of the world do not understand the graces that flow through me. They are pushing many graces away.
“Obedience and humility are the virtues that are lacking in many of my children.”
The Writings of the Second Vatican Council
The Second Vatican Council wrote of the Blessed Mother’s role of Mediatrix: “In the words of the apostle there is but one mediator: ‘for there is but one God and one mediator of God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a redemption for all’ (1 Tim 2:5-6). But Mary’s function as mother of men in no way obscures or diminishes this unique mediation of Christ, but rather shows its power. But the Blessed Virgin’s salutary influence on men originates not in any inner necessity but in the disposition of God. It flows forth from the superabundance of the merits of Christ, rests on His mediation, depends entirely on it and draws all its power from it. It does not hinder in any way the immediate union of the faithful with Christ but on the contrary fosters it.” [Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, Vatican II, Lumen Gentium, 21 November, 1964, Chapter VIII, Part III.]
Messages on Honoring Our Mother
On August 26, 1990, Nancy asked Jesus, “Do graces only come from the Mother of God?” Jesus replied, “Look from where graces flow, where they start. If there were no graces from Me, there would be no one on earth. My graces flow through My Mother. Now I am giving you My graces. Oh, what foolishness men speak. Men think they are wise. They are foolish.”
On November 15, 1990, Jesus said, “Woe be to the parishes that dishonor My Mother. If they dishonor My Mother, they dishonor Me. I came through My Mother the first time and so shall I the second time.” Nancy saw Jesus’ suffering face. Tears were coming from His eyes. He said, “Let those who ignore My Mother know this: they are ignoring God.”
On December 4, 1990 after Nancy had heard a speaker at a Medjugorje Conference, Jesus explained, “Stand against My Mother and stand against Me. If you do not accept My Mother then you are dismembered from Me. Did you hear what [the speaker’s name] said of My Mother’s position? He placed her in the neck. I like that position. Tell others about this. When they cut My Mother off, they are cutting the neck. Remove the neck; remove My Mother. Then you are dead. Then you are completely dismembered from My body. The peace of the world has been entrusted to My Mother.
“My Mother is one with Me. Above all creatures she has been raised to the throne of God. No creature surpasses My Mother. So you see the priest, the religious, the laity, squeeze their own throats when they close themselves off from My Mother. There are no coincidences. From the very cross I gave the world My Mother, and from this very cross, I say, refuse My Mother’s help and refuse My help.”
