August 25, 1988 Message From Our Lady of Medjugorje:
Today I invite you all to rejoice in the life which God gives you.
Little children, rejoice in God, the Creator, because He has created you so wonderfully.
Pray that your life be joyful thanksgiving which flows out of your heart like a river of joy.
Little children, give thanks unceasingly for all that you possess, for each little gift which God has given you, so that a joyful blessing always comes down from God upon your life.
Thank you for having responded to my call.”
