Medjugorje Messages (2008)January 2, 2008 "Dear children, with all the strength of my heart, I love you and give myself to you. As a mother fights for her children, I pray for you and fight for you. I ask you not to be afraid to open yourselves, so as to be able to love with the heart and give yourselves to others. The more that you do this with the heart, the more you will receive and the better you will understand my Son and his gift to you. May everyone recognize you through the love of my Son and through me. Thank you." (Mirjana 01/02/2008)
