It was mentioned in his homily for the Solemnity of the Mother of God celebrated on January 1.
He stated that in the Gospel account of Christmas, Mary does not speak.
Was he referencing the Medjugorje messages to Marija on December 25, and to Mirjana on January 2.
Pope Francis added:
The Gospel goes on to say that Mary kept all these things, pondering them in her heart. What were these things? They were joys and sorrows. On the one hand, the birth of Jesus, the love of Joseph, the visit of the shepherds, that radiant night. But on the other, an uncertain future, homelessness “because there was no place for them in the inn” (Lk 2:7), the desolation of rejection, the disappointment of having to give birth to Jesus in a stable. Hopes and worries, light and darkness: all these things dwelt in the heart of Mary. What did she do? She pondered them, that is to say she dwelt on them, with God, in her heart. She held nothing back; she locked nothing within out of self-pity or resentment. Instead, she gave everything over to God. That is how she “kept” those things. We “keep” things when we hand them over: by not letting our lives become prey to fear, distress or superstition, by not closing our hearts or trying to forget, but by turning everything into a dialogue with God. God, who keeps us in his heart, then comes to dwell in our lives.Is the Pope’s mention of “the secrets of the Mother of God” a veiled reference to the “secrets” claimed by the Medjugorje seers?
These, then, are the secrets of the Mother of God: silently treasuring all things and bringing them to God. And this took place, the Gospel concludes, in her heart. The heart makes us look to the core of the person, his or her affections and life.
Is Pope Francis making a similar statement to the one he made about Our Lady not being a post-mistress?
It is a very assertive statement, seemingly proclaimed with authority as Pope and bishop of Rome during Mass.
Not long ago Mirjana said she would be happy to reveal the Medjugorje secrets to the Pope, if he wanted. It seems that in his homily, the Pope is saying he already knows the secrets of Our Lady’s heart.
