The Queen of Peace of Medjugorje has told us in situations of immediate and urgent need, She will be with us. She encourages us to call upon Her. Our Lady said on March 4, 1982:
“…I am at your side and guard you. If you have any problems, whatever it be, call me. I will come immediately and help you in advising you on best resolving the difficulty…”
A 911 call receives immediate help, but 911 also now stands for the crisis of September 11, 2001, or 9/11. A 911 crisis in one’s life should not only be handled by reacting to the physical aspect associated with the crisis, but met with a spiritual response as well. Because Our Lady also has said on July 21, 1982:
“…Through fasting and prayer, one can stop wars, one can suspend the laws of nature…”
Therefore, we know any crisis whatsoever must submit to change, even against all odds, when granted by God through prayer. For immediately needed graces and urgent needs, the Caritas Community has used and adopted a special 911 prayer response:
9 Pray 9 times the Memorare
1 Pray 1 Rosary
1 Pray 1 Chaplet of Divine Mercy
Pray the Caritas 911 prayer in the following way:
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
That never was it known
That anyone who fled to Thy protection
Implored Thy help
Or sought Thy intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto Thee
O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To Thee I come, before Thee I stand,
sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
But in Thy mercy hear and answer me.
O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in you.
