I just finished reading another book about Medjugorje, titled A Child Shall Lead Them: Stories of Transformed Young Lives in Medjugorje (author Wayne Weible).
This book really highlights some of the fruits of these reported apparitions. Weible gives several accounts of teenagers who were headed down the "wrong path" in life, with vices including drug abuse and alcoholism, but then turned their lives around after learning of what was happening in Medjugorje. He even recounts the story of his own daughter, who had an abortion, and how she later came to be someone who would live and carry the messages of Medjugorje with him.
The book is both saddening and heartwarming. The lives of these children really accents the general state of youth and the dark temptations they suffer through these days. It is no wonder the Virgin Mary has often asked through her Medjugorje messages that we pray for today's youth. But the book leaves a hopeful tone, as well, since the answers to these problems - prayer, fasting, and penance, are so easily accessible. The stories of these children can be beacons of light to not only parents but really everyone. It does not matter what your current condition is. God is always waiting, with open arms, to lead us back home.
I have placed my book for sale on Amazon.com and highly recommend you read it!
