Prayer to Our Lady of Bistrica

Immaculate Mother of Jesus, We honor You as God’s chosen one, beautiful, beloved, and free from all sin. Keep watch over us, pray that we may rise above our sins and failings and come to share the fullness of grace. Be a Mother to us in the order of grace by assisting us to live your obedience, your faith, your hope and your love.


The Season of fasting and prayer

Lent is a time set aside by the Church for fasting and prayer, a time for personal reflection, change of attitudes and behaviors, and growth in the spiritual life.

We should immerse into the Paschal Mystery more deeply into Jesus’ suffering, death and resurrection. Let us accept the suffering and hardships of everyday life and give them the redemptive value by uniting them with the sufferings of Christ.

As we walk through the Season of Lent let us not forget to set our minds and hearts on the real meaning of this season; conversion and repentance.

Giving up things, although praise worthy, would not bring much fruit if there were no real change of heart and true repentance.

Let us keep dying to our sinful attitudes, thoughts, words and actions so that we may start rising to a new life of love, purity and grace.

Our Lady’s Promise to Those Who Pray Rosary

Whoever shall faithfully serve me by recitation of the rosary, shall receive signal graces.I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the rosary. The rosary will be a powerful armor against hell. It will destroy vice, decrease sin and defeat heresies.

It will cause the virtue and good works to flourish, it will obtain for souls abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to desire eternal things. Oh that souls will sanctify themselves with these means.Those who recommend themselves to me by recitation of the rosary shall not perish.

Who ever will recite the Rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries shall never be overcome by misfortune, God will not chastise him His. Justice. He will not perish by an unprovided death. If he be just, he will remain in the grace of God, and become worthy of eternal life.

Whoever shall have a true devotion for the Rosary shall not die without the sacraments of the Church. Those who are faithful to recite the Rosary shall have during their life and at their death, the light of God and plenitude of His grace; at the moment of death they shall participate in the merits of the saints in paradise.

I shall deliver from the purgatory all those who have been devoted to the Rosary.
The faithful children of the Rosary, shall merit a high degree of glory in heaven.
You shall obtain all you ask of me by recitation of the Rosary.
All those who propagate the holy Rosary shall be added by me in their necessities.

I have obtain from my divine Son that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for intercessors the entire celestial court during their life and at the hour of death.

All who recite the Rosary are my sons and brothers of my only Son, Jesus Christ.

Devotion to my Rosary is the great sign of predestination.

Rosary – Our Lady’s Favorite Prayer

In recent times Our Lady has appeared in different parts of the world and asked for the recitation of the rosary, the prayer she gave to the world. Rosary is Blessed Mother’s favorite prayer, which is essentially meditation on the life of Jesus Christ.

Rosary prayer is composed of a vocal prayer (Our Father, Hail Mary & Glory Be) and mental prayer, which include reflection of the important events of the Life of Our Lord and His Blessed Mother. Our Lady has also made a request that after each decade the following prayer will be added;

“O my Jesus forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell and lead all souls to heaven, especially those who are in most need of your mercy.”

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Zdravo Marijo

Zdravo Marijo, milosti puna, Gospodin s Tobom, blagoslovljena Ti medju zenama, i blagoslovljen plod utrobe Tvoje: Isus. Sveta Marijo, Majko Bozja, moli za nas grjesnike sada i na cas smrti nase. Amen.

Oce naš, koji jesi na nebesima, sveti se ime tvoje, dodi kraljevstvo tvoje, budi volja tvoja / kako na nebu tako i na zemlji. Kruh naš svagdanji daj nam danas. I otpusti nam duge naše kako i mi otpuštamo dužnicima našim.I ne uvedi nas u napast, nego izbavi nas od zla.
