My name is
Fr. Charles Becker, a priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago. I was
ordained in 1986 and experienced a conversion to a deeper appreciation
of the Catholic Faith in 1989-1990 through Medjugorje! My introduction
to the Marian Movement of Priests began immediately following my first
trips to Medjugorje due to my openness to the laity's influence and
their experience of supernatural and mystical happenings. These prayer
groups or “Cenacles” of the MMP restored my
vocation to the priesthood through the rosary, the messages Our Lady
gives to priests and all of us in Her Movement, and finally and most
importantly my Consecration to Her Immaculate Heart in October 1990!
The difference is phenomenal and I am so grateful!
on this website a variety of topics that have to do with Our Lady's
Work of gathering all of us, her children, into Her Immaculate Heart.
Topics include; Medjugorje, Marian Movement of Priests, Apostolate of
Holy Motherhood, Fatima, Montichiari, Garabandal, Rawanda, Akita, and
other approved and unapproved apparitions of Our Blessed Mother. Also
you will find information about Prayer Groups (Cenacles), Healing
Services, Deliverance Ministry, House Blessings and various Blessings
from the Old Ritual (Roman Ritual)! There is also information on
various Apostolates that I have been involved with over the years such
as, Community Cenacolo, Calix Society and Courage. I have also had the
opportunity to develop some Radio Programs with www.RadioMaria.us,
where you can “listen live” every week Wednesday at
5pm or listen to past programs by clicking on the “Radio
Show” button on your left. There are also some EWTN Homilies
and other recordings that are posted on this site. Please visit www.medjugorjechicago.org
for trips to Medjugorje that I participate in and are coordinated by
the Zovko Family and Joanne Ranallo.
Movements of Our Lady that I feel called to encourage the most are:
2. The Marian Movement of Priests (MMP)
3. The Apostolate of Holy Motherhood
Movements of Our Lady refer to each other in Her messages ie, MMP
message #357m, “...certain great events will take place,
concerning what I predicted at Fatima and have told, under secrecy, to
the children to whom I am appearing at Medjugorje.” and in
the Apostolate of Holy Motherhood, p. 50, “I want all of my
priests, that is the ones dedicated to me, particularly in the M____
movement of priests,...”.
the Blessed Mother lead you closer to Her Son Jesus!
