I am one who does not think that Our Lady of Medjugorje is simply talking about Advent in her recent messages.
I didn’t say she was.
I commented on her opening sentence: “This is a time of grace and prayer, a time of waiting and giving” and said it was a reference to
I think it was Fr Jozo who, very early on, identified certain themes in Our Lady’s messages. They became known as the “five stones” and recognised as a call to Prayer, Fasting, the Eucharist, Reading the Bible and Confession.
Many of Our Lady’s messages are also themed around the great feasts and seasons of the Church, Advent, and Christmas, in particular, when she usually appears to Marija with the Infant Jesus.
Most of her Advent messages are usually a call to prepare for the coming of the Infant Jesus with prayer and confession – and she generally refers to this period as “a time of grace”. She seldom uses this expression for other months, but for November. She did so in her most recent message.

In these instances we can understand that the “time of grace” is a reference to Advent.
Advent is consistent theme in the November messages going back to the 90’s.
