As usual on Christmas Day Our Lady came with the Infant Jesus in her arms, but surprisingly she gave no message for the world to the Medjugorje visionary Marija. Instead it was Little Jesus who began to speak and said:
“I am your peace, live my commandments.”
Then with a Sign of the Cross, Our Lady and the Infant Jesus blessed all who had gathered for the apparition.
A comment from the Crown of Thorns blog
The outcome of today’s apparition to the visionary Marija Pavlovic-Lunetti, commissioned by Our Lady to transmit her monthly messages to the world, comes as a major surprise. Mary remains silent while the Infant Jesus instead speaks directly to Marija!
Never in all the years of messages given for the world through Marija, going back to 1984, has she ever transmitted a direct message from Jesus. There is no surprise that Jesus comes with Mary for the Christmas Day messages. This has always been so, but for her Son to convey his message directly in this way has never happened before in the history of the Medjugorje apparitions. Does it herald the approach of a new phase for the Medjugorje phenomenon? Is there any connection with the anticipated announcement in 2013 from Rome appertaining to the outcome of the International Commission set up to investigate Medjugorje?
