6 Visionaries, Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina, 1981 – current (Our Lady,  Queen of Peace)

 

Status: Supernatural Evidence Not established and Not excluded (Non constat de supernaturalitate) Pending review.

 

Episcopal Remarks: Three Episcopal Commissions have been launched so far into the claims of the visionaries of Medjugorje. The First headed up by Mgr Zanic, Bishop of Mostar started in 1982 and reported inconclusive findings to the Congregation for the Doctrine for the Faith in 1983.  This was extended into a second Commission by Bishop Zanic in 1984 which by late 1986 had reported to the C.D.F. its final verdict of  Non Constat de Supernaturalitate. Owing to international Exposure and continued miraculous claims on the suggestion of the C.D.F. a third commission was formed in 1987, this time under the aegis of the Bishops Conference. The results of the four year long investigation were presented in 1990 and released in 1991  and concurred with the second commission’s findings of Non Constat de Supernaturalitate.

(i) Official Statements:

 

 

(a) Commission #1:

 

“In the conclusion the bishop puts forth the question of the "apparitions":  Are they from God? - The "Madonna" of Medjugorje has brought more disorder and disarray here than there was earlier! Hence he doesn't see how he can accept this as coming from God.  Is it from the devil? - He has difficulty accepting this hypothesis as well, even though the thought has crossed his mind.  Is it all a hoax? - From the outset one can notice that the children have sometimes lied.” (Međugorje: Secrets, Messages, Vocations, Prayers, Confessions, Commissions, Msgr. Ratko Perić, Bishop Of Mostar-Duvno, Bih Maynooth/Dublin, February 17, 2004)

 

“In mid-August 1981, in the declaration of  Monsignor Pavao Zanic, bishop of Mostar-Duvno, which was open to honest interpretation, it was said that the "most difficult question remains whether this is the subjective experience of the children or something supernatural?” (Appendix 1 to Međugorje: Secrets, Messages, Vocations, Prayers, Confessions, Commissions, Msgr. Ratko Perić, Bishop Of Mostar-Duvno, Bih Maynooth/Dublin, February 17, 2004)

 

 

(b) Commission #2:

 

It is forbidden to organise pilgrimages or other manifestations motivated by the supernatural character attributed to the events in Medjugorje" (Cardinal Franjo Kuharic and the Bishop of Mostar Conference of Bishops of Yugoslavia, 29 January 1987)

 

It is not permissible to organise pilgrimages and other manifestations motivated by the supernatural character attributed to the facts of Medjugorje” (Pavao Zanic, Bishop of Mostar, Franjo Card. Kuharic, President of Yugoslav Episcopal Conference, Zagreb 29th January 1987 and repeated in Communiqué Of The Yugoslav Bishops Concerning The Facts Of Medjugorje, 23 February 1987),

 

“The three year work of the commission concluded as follows:  two members voted in favour of the truth and supernatural nature of the apparitions. One member abstained from voting. One accepted that something had happened at the beginning.  Eleven voted that there had been no apparitions—non constat de supernaturalitate” (Declaration of Pavao Zanic the Bishop of Mostar, Concerning Medjugorje, 25, July 1987)

 

“Of the 15 members of the first commission, which was formed by the bishop of Mostar with the help of the bishops and provincials from Yugoslavia, 11 of the members said that there is nothing supernatural in the events of Medjugorje, two (Franciscans) claimed that the apparitions are authentic, one member said that there was something in nucleo (in the beginning) and one abstained” (The Truth about Medjugorje: A Statement of Monsignor Pavao Zanic, Bishop of Mostar-Duvno, May, 1990),

 

The second diocesan commission, which worked from 1984 to 1986, voted explicitly on 2 May 1986, by an overwhelming majority for the Non constat de supernaturalitate (11 negative votes, 2 positive, 1 in nucleo, 1 abstention” (Reply To Monsieur Thierry Boutet Secretary General Of The Association Famille Chrétienne October 1997)

 

 On 2 May 1986, the members of the commission voted non constat de supernaturalitate, that is, it does not follow that the "events" in Medjugorje involve supernatural apparitions” (Private Visits To Unauthentic Apparitions, A Statement by Monsignor Ratko Peric, 21 July 1998

 

On 2 May 1986, the commission of investigation votes, in a secret ballot, by 11 votes to 4, against the recognition of the supernatural character of the events: non constat de supernaturalitate” (Official Bulletin Of The French Episcopal Commission (Snop) No 1064, La Documentation Catholique, January 7, 2000)

 

“the Commission completed its work. The members of the Commission voted on the following conclusion: Non constat de supernaturalitate (11 voted 'for', 2 'against', 1 accepted 'in nucleo', and 1 abstained).” (Međugorje: Secrets, Messages, Vocations, Prayers, Confessions, Commissions, Msgr. Ratko Perić, Bishop Of Mostar-Duvno, Bih Maynooth/Dublin, February 17, 2004)

 

“Commission #2: “…a comparison of the concept of conversion as presented in the Gospels to the phenomenon of Medjugorje; problems of discipline regarding two former chaplains of Mostar who appeal to the messages of Medjugorje; theological problems regarding some of the messages of Medjugorje; and insufficient documentation on the supposed miraculous healings.” (Appendix 1 to Međugorje: Secrets, Messages, Vocations, Prayers, Confessions, Commissions, Msgr. Ratko Perić, Bishop Of Mostar-Duvno, Bih Maynooth/Dublin, February 17, 2004)

 

 

(c)  Commission # 3: 

 

“I, the bishop of Mostar, answerable before God for the discipline in this diocese repeat and confirm earlier decisions of ecclesiastical bodies, and I forbid pilgrimages to come here and attribute a supernatural character to these events before the Commission of the Bishops' Conference completes its work.” (Declaration of Pavao Zanic the Bishop of Mostar, Concerning Medjugorje, 25, July 1987)

 

“If, after serious, solid, and professional investigation, our bishops' conference had the courage to declare that Medjugorje's “apparitions” are not supernatural, in spite of massive stories and convictions to the contrary, then that is a sign that the Church, even in the 20th century, "upholds the truth and keeps it safe" (1 Tim. 3:15). (Bishop Peric in An Interview With The Bishop Of Mostar (Excerpts) Crkva na Kamenu ("The Church on the Rock"), Newspaper of the Diocese of Mostar-Duvno.  October 1993)

 

“According to an official communiqué dated 10h April 1991, composed on the basis of the thorough and comprehensive work of the commissions of experts, the bishops 16 did not find a single indication or sign which might have led them to say that the phenomena in Medjugorje are of supernatural origin. Nor has anything of significance since happened with regard to the “apparitions” and “messages” so as to lead to a reconsideration.” (Final Chapter Of The Book Ogledalo Pravde (“Mirror Of Justice”) By Monsignor Peric   (Mostar, 2001), Pp. 313-314. Mostar, 2001)

 

Commission #3: “While waiting for the results of the Commission's investigations and the judgment of the Church, may pastors and the faithful observe prudence in these circumstances. Therefore, organized pilgrimages or other manifestations, motivated by supernatural attributes given to the phenomenon of Medjugorje are not allowed.” (Appendix 1 to Međugorje: Secrets, Messages, Vocations, Prayers, Confessions, Commissions, Msgr. Ratko Perić, Bishop Of Mostar-Duvno, Bih Maynooth/Dublin, February 17, 2004)

 

 

(d) Concluding remarks

 

“In her [the Church’s] name, 30 chosen priests and physicians, working together in three Commissions for 10 years, in more than 30 meetings, dutifully and expertly investigated the events of Medjugorje and brought forth their results of study. And not one, but twenty bishops responsibly declared that there exists no proof that the events in Medjugorje concern supernatural apparitions or revelations” (Međugorje: Secrets, Messages, Vocations, Prayers, Confessions, Commissions, Msgr. Ratko Perić, Bishop Of Mostar-Duvno, Bih Maynooth/Dublin, February 17, 2004)

 

The Church, from the local to supreme level, from the beginning to this very day, has clearly and constantly repeated: Non constat de supernaturalitate! No to pilgrimages that would ascribe a supernatural nature to the apparitions, no shrine of the Madonna, no authentic messages nor revelations, no true visions!  “(Međugorje: Secrets, Messages, Vocations, Prayers, Confessions, Commissions, Msgr. Ratko Perić, Bishop Of Mostar-Duvno, Bih Maynooth/Dublin, February 17, 2004)

 

The Church has still not recognized the supernatural nature of the "apparitions" at Medjugorje” (Appendix 1 to Međugorje: Secrets, Messages, Vocations, Prayers, Confessions, Commissions, Msgr. Ratko Perić, Bishop Of Mostar-Duvno, Bih Maynooth/Dublin, February 17, 2004)

 

“The competent Church authorities, first of all the diocesan bishop on the basis of investigations made by his two commissions from 1982-1986, and then the commission of the bishops' conference on the grounds of its investigations from 1987-1990, both brought forth the following negative judgement regarding the supernatural nature of the apparitions” (Appendix 1 to Međugorje: Secrets, Messages, Vocations, Prayers, Confessions, Commissions, Msgr. Ratko Perić, Bishop Of Mostar-Duvno, Bih Maynooth/Dublin, February 17, 2004)

 

(e) Other official statements

 

“Conversions are possible everywhere, and some are bound to happen in Medjugorje. But this is not proof that the "apparitions" are supernatural.” (Bishop Peric in An Interview With The Bishop Of Mostar (Excerpts) Crkva na Kamenu ("The Church on the Rock"), Newspaper of the Diocese of Mostar-Duvno.  October 1993)

 

The judgement of the Church is the same and it is still valid.  There is no fact, argument, affirmation or miracle which proves that there is a case of "apparitions or supernatural revelations” (Interview With Monsignor Ratko Peric, Bishop Of Mostar, By Yves Chiron. Medjugorje: the State of the Question  in 1997, Présent, 25 January 1997)

 

 Due to the lack of authenticity regarding "supernatural apparitions" in Medjugorje, the local bishop, Monsignor Zanic, was against the organizing of visits to the place of the so-called apparitions.” (Private Visits To Unauthentic Apparitions, A Statement by Monsignor Ratko Peric, 21 July 1998)

 

"The fruits, so often mentioned, do not prove that they flow from apparitions or supernatural revelations of Our Lady. But in the measure that they are authentically Christian, they may be interpreted as a product of the normal work of divine grace, by faith in God, by the intercession of the Virgin Mary, Mother of Christ, and by the sacraments of the Catholic Church. And this to say nothing of the negative fruits." (Official Bulletin Of The French Episcopal Commission (Snop) No 1064, La Documentation Catholique, January 7, 2000)

 

 Neither can it be considered proof of the supernatural nature of the "apparitions" the fact that the church of St. James the Apostle in Medjugorje was not hit by grenades during this war, while for instance, both of the churches of Mostar and many other churches in Herzegovina, Bosnia and Croatia were bombed and destroyed” (Appendix 1 to Međugorje: Secrets, Messages, Vocations, Prayers, Confessions, Commissions, Msgr. Ratko Perić, Bishop Of Mostar-Duvno, Bih Maynooth/Dublin, February 17, 2004)

 

“Yet, let these necessary and useful tourist aims be based upon our praiseworthy Christian traditions and the martyrdoms for the faith undergone in the past and present, along with the well-known values and beauty of our homeland, which the Almighty has given her, and not upon unsubstantiated and groundless supernatural "apparitions", "revelations" and "messages".”(Appendix 1 to Međugorje: Secrets, Messages, Vocations, Prayers, Confessions, Commissions, Msgr. Ratko Perić, Bishop Of Mostar-Duvno, Bih Maynooth/Dublin, February 17, 2004)

 

 

(ii) Private opinions of the Bishops of Mostar:

 

I have at least 20 reasons not to believe, of which only one is necessary for those who are sober and well instructed in the faith to come to the conclusion that the apparitions are not of the supernatural.” (Private opinion of Monsignor Pavao Zanic, Bishop of Mostar-Duvno, as published in The Triuth about Medjugorje: A Statement Pavao Zanic, Bishop of Mostar-Duvno, May, 1990 May, 1990),

 

“Msgr. Zanic, a very Marian bishop…after a few months, when he heard the small fibs and large lies, insincerities, inexactitudes, and all sorts of fabricated stories from those who claimed that the Gospa was appearing to them, he became totally convinced that it was not a matter of supernatural apparitions of the Gospa Then he started to bring out the truth and to expose the falsehoods” (Private Opinion of Monsignor Pavao Zanic, Bishop of Mostar-Duvno as stated by Bishop Peric in An Interview With The Bishop Of Mostar (Excerpts) Crkva na Kamenu ("The Church on the Rock"), Newspaper of the Diocese of Mostar-Duvno.  October 1993)

 

If none of these several thousand “apparitions” have been recognized by the bishops as supernatural, then there is something very rebellious about the Medjugorje "phenomenon".”(Private Opinion of Bishop Peric in An Interview With The Bishop Of Mostar (Excerpts) Crkva na Kamenu ("The Church on the Rock"), Newspaper of the Diocese of Mostar-Duvno.  October 1993)

 

My conviction and my position is not only 'non constat de supernaturalitate,' but likewise, 'constat de non supernaturalitate' of the apparitions or revelations in Medjugorje” (Private position of Bishop Peric in a Reply To Monsieur Thierry Boutet Secretary General Of The Association Famille Chrétienne October 1997)

 

“With your stories on the "apparitions" of Medjugorje, which are truly regrettable you have helped me come to the conviction and to the constat de non supernaturalitate of the so called "apparitions" of Medjugorje.” (Private position of Bishop Peric in a Reply To Monsieur Thierry Boutet Secretary General Of The Association Famille Chrétienne October 1997)

Very intelligent, Mirjana graduated from the University of Sarajevo where her family lived. Mirjana was the second to see the Blessed Mother that day, June 24th in Medjugorje. Although her family lived in Sarajevo, she spent the summers with her grandmother who lived in Bijakovici. That is how she came to be in Medjugorje that summer. She had daily apparitions from June 24, 1981 till December 25, 1982. On this date, Mirjana received her 10th and final secret from Our Lady. Mirjana was the first seer to receive all 10 secrets. Since that time, Our Lady only appeared to Mirjana once a year on her birthday (March 18) until August 2, 1987 when Our Lady also started appearing to Mirjana on the 2nd day of each month to pray with Mirjana for all unbelievers…These special meetings with Our Lady are sometimes apparitions and sometimes locutions. Mirjana's 2nd of the month meetings with Our Lady used to be something very private. Not even her own family was with her during these visits with Our Lady. Mirjana always locked herself into her room and started praying. On January 2, 1997, Our Lady told Mirjana that from February 2, 1997 onward, her apparitions would be public…Mirjana is living in the parish of Medjugorje and is married to Marko Soldo who she knew since they were children. They have two daughters and meet with pilgrims often when they are in Medjugorje. Mirjana also helps out with many orphans at the orphanage in Medjugorje since the war.

 

 

Marija Pavlovic-Lunetti - Marija is the third oldest member of the group. She was born on April 1, 1965, in Bijakovici. Her prayer mission given by Our Lady is to pray for all the souls in purgatory. She has three brothers and two sisters. When the apparitions started, she was studying in Mostar which is about eighteen miles away.... Our Lady appeared to her for the first time on June 25, 1981. She still has apparitions every day, and is the visionary to whom Our Lady gives the public message to the world on the 25th of each month. Our Lady has confided nine secrets to her so far. Marija is presently living in Italy, is married, and has four children. She visits Medjugorje a number of times each year.

 

Ivanka Ivankovic-Elez - Ivanka was the first to see Our Lady on June 24, 1981, and is the youngest of the 4 girls and was born on July 21, 1966, in Bijakovici. Ivanka's prayer mission from Our Lady is to pray for families. Ivanka has one brother and one sister. Her Mother Jagoda, died in May 1981. When the apparitions first began, Ivanka asked the Blessed Mother about her mother. Our Lady told her that her mother was with her in heaven. God has allowed Ivanka to see and speak to her mother, who is in heaven, five times over the years. She had daily apparitions from June 24, 1981, until May 7, 1985. On that day Our Lady confided to her the last of her ten secrets. Our Lady told her that for her entire life she will have an apparition every year on June 25, the anniversary of the apparitions. And so far it has been just that way. Ivanka is living in the parish of Medjugorje, is married and has three children, and a fourth due in August 2004.

 

 

Ivan Dragicevic - Ivan is the oldest of the two boys who see Our Lady and was born on May 25th, 1965 in Bijakovici.

Our Lady to date has confided nine secrets to Ivan. He is now married and resides half the year in the parish of Medjugorje, and half the year in Boston, MA. Ivan and his wife Laureen have three children.

 

 

Jakov Colo - Jakov is the youngest of the seers. He was born on March 6, 1971 in Bijakovici, and was only 10 years old when the apparitions started. His prayer mission given by Our Lady is to pray for the sick. Jakovs' mother Jaca, died on September 5th 1983 and it affected Jakov very deeply since he rarely saw his father who worked in Germany as many men did in those days with no jobs available in Medjugorje or the surrounding area. He has had daily apparitions since June 25, 1981, and on September 12, 1998, Our Lady confided to him his 10th secret. Our Lady now appears to Jakov only once per year on Christmas Day. Our Lady literally raised Jakov since his mother died when he was so young. It was very difficult for him to accept that he would no longer see Our Lady every day. He wondered how he would continue, and struggled for months until he tells us that through prayer he realized that he was now like all of us who do not see Our Lady. He tells us that Our Lady is with each one of us always, and we can experience her in our hearts. Jakov lives in the parish of Medjugorje, is married and now has three children.

 


 

The Messages

 

 

1981  

 

JUNE 24, 1981: The first apparition takes place in the afternoon. It is a silent and distant silhouette on the summit of Podbrdo which later would be called Hill of Apparition or Apparition Mountain. The second apparition of the day takes place around 6:00pm. 

 

JUNE 25, 1981: This is the first day the six visionaries saw Our Lady or the Gospa on the hill: "Praise be Jesus!" Ivanka asked about her mother who had died two months earlier."She is happy. She is with me" (other version: "She is your angel in Heaven"). The visionaries asked if Our Lady would return the next day. Our Lady responded with a nod of the head. Mirjana asked if Our Lady would give them a sign so that others would believe them. Mirjana believed she had received a sign when the Gospa smiled. Also, Mirjana noticed that her watch had changed time during the apparition. "Good-bye my angels. Go in the peace of God." 

 

JUNE 26, 1981: A crowd of nearly three thousand people were drawn to Apparition Mountain by the luminary signs coming from the hill. Holy water is sprinkled on Our Lady by Vicka. She asks Our Lady to stay is She is indeed the Virgin Mary. Our Lady smiles in response. Ivanka then asked why Our Lady is here and what does she want from the people. Our Lady responded: "I have come because there are many true believers here. I wish to be with you to convert and to reconcile the whole world." Ivanka asked if her mother has any message for her. "Obey your grandmother and help her because she is old." Mirjana wanted to know about her grandfather who had recently died. "He is well." The visionaries requested a sign to prove that the apparition was really the Gospa. "Blessed are those who have not seen and who believe." Mirjana asked: "Who are you?" "I am the Blessed Virgin Mary." Why are you appearing to us? We are no better than others. "I do not necessarily choose the best." Will you come back? "Yes, to the same place as yesterday." While Marija goes down the mountain, she is mysteriously pushed to the side of the trail by an unseen force. She sees the Virgin again. Our Lady is carrying a wooden cross and is crying. "Peace, Peace, Peace! Be reconciled! Only Peace. Make your peace with God among yourselves. For that, it is necessary to believe, to pray, to fast, and to go to confession." 

 

June 27, 1981:  "Praise be Jesus" Jakov wanted to know what the Virgin expected of the Franciscans in Medjugorje. "Have them persevere in the faith and protect the faith of the people." Mirjana and Jakov were concerned because the people were treating them like liars. They asked Our Lady to leave a sign for the people. "My angels, do not be afraid of injustices. They have always existed." The visionaries asked: "How must we pray?" "Continue to recite the Lord's Prayer, the Hail Mary, and the Glory Be seven times, but also add the Creed. Good-bye, my angels. Go in the peace of God." Our Lady said to Ivan: "Be in peace and take courage." 

 

JUNE 28, 1981:  The visionaries want to know what the Gospa wishes. "That people believe and persevere in the faith."Vicka asked: "What do you expect from the priests?" "That they remain strong in the faith and that help you." They asked Our Lady why She does not appear to everyone in the church. "Blessed are they who believe without having seen." They wanted to know if She would return. "Yes, to the same place." The visionaries ask if She prefers prayer or singing. "Both, prayer and singing." Vicka asked what Our Lady wished from the crowd gathered on the hill. According to the visionaries, Our Lady responded with a smile and a loving glance. At this point, the Gospa disappeared. The visionaries prayed, hoping she would return because She had not said good-bye. It was during the song, "You Are All Beautiful", that She returned. Three times Vicka asked, "Dear Gospa (Croatian word for Our Lady), what do you expect of these people?" "That those who do not see believe as those who see." Once again the visionaries asked for a sign so that the people would not think of them as liars. They only received a smile from Our Lady as She told them good-bye and disappeared. "Go in the peace of God." 

 

JUNE 29, 1981: The visionaries wanted to know if the Gospa was happy to see so many people present. "More than happy." They ask, "How long will You stay?" "As long as you will want me to, my angels." They questioned Our Lady about Her expectations about those who came despite the heat and the brambles. "There is only one God, one faith. Let the people believe firmly and do not fear anything." "What do you expect of us?" the visionaries inquired. "That you have a solid faith and you maintain confidence." The visionaries wanted to know if they would be strong enough to endure persecutions because of their beliefs. "You will be able to, my angels. Do not fear. You will be able to endure everything. You must believe and have confidence in me." At this point, Doctor Darinka Glamuzina, working for the Government, requests Vicka to ask a question for her: "May I touch Our Lady?" "There have always been Judases who don't believe, but she can approach." Vicka shows Doctor Glamuzina where to extend her hand and Doctor Glamuzina touches the Gospa. The parents of a handicapped child ask the visionaries to intercede on behalf of the child. The ask the Virgin to cure the child so that people will believe them. "Have them believe strongly in his cure. Go in the peace of God." The child was cured later that same evening. Between June 30, 1981 and December 31, 1981, the visionaries were being tracked down by the police. They had to find a discreet place to wait for the Virgin to appear. 

 

JUNE 30, 1981: Two social workers took the visionaries on a ride so they would miss the apparition on the hill. The apparition took place at Cerno, on the road between Ljbuski and Medjugorje. Mirjana asked Our Lady if She was angry because they were not on the hill. Our Lady responded: "That doesn't matter." Mirjana then asked if Our Lady would be angry if they did not return to the hill, but waited for apparition at the church. Somehow Our Lady seemed undecided (according to Mirjana), but then She agreed to appear in the church and added: "Always at the same time. Go in the peace of God." Mirjana, who had been reading an account of the apparitions at Lourdes, thought she understood that the Virgin would return for another three days, until Friday, as She had in Lourdes. However, this was only Mirjana's interpretation. 

 

JULY 1, 1981: Again the visionaries ask the Gospa for a sign. Our Lady appeared to nod Her head. "Good-bye, my dear angels." 

 

JULY 21, 1981: Our Lady arrived: "Praise be Jesus." The visionaries asked again for a sign and the Gospa said yes. They asked how long She would continue to visit them. "My sweet angels, even if I were to leave the sign, many people will not believe. Many people will only come here and bow down, but people must be converted and do penance." The visionaries asked the Virgin about the sick and She said they would find the cure in strong faith. The Gospa then departed: "Go in the peace of God." 

 

JULY 22, 1981: "Praise be Jesus Christ. A good many people have been converted and among them some had not gone to Confession in 45 years, and now they are going to confession. Go in the peace of God." 

 

JULY 23, 1981: "Praised be Jesus Christ" 

 

JULY 24, 1981: Again the visionaries asked questions concerning the sick. "Without faith, nothing is possible. All those who will believe firmly will be cured." 

 

JULY 25, 1981: After more questions about the sick, Our Lady answered: "God, help us all!" 

 

JULY 27, 1981: The visionaries ask the Virgin to bless some objects. "In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit." Once again the visionaries asked about the sign. "Wait, it will be soon. I will appear to you again at 11:15pm. Go in the peace of God." They see Jesus' head, brown eyes, beard, and long hair to prepare them for the suffering and persecution they were having to endure. "My angels, I send you my Son, Jesus, Who was tortured for His faith, and yet He endured everything. You also, my angels, will endure everything." The visionaries are praised for their beautiful singing and praying. "It is beautiful to listen to you. Continue in this manner. Don't be afraid for Jozo." [He was threatened by the police] 

 

JULY 29, 1981: The Virgin in Vicka's room. They asked about a sick person. "Praise be Jesus! She will be cured. She must believe firmly." The visionaries asked to embrace Our Lady to leave a sign. "Yes. Go in the peace of God" 

 

JULY, 1981: "Carry out well your responsibilities and what the Church asks you to do." Early August, 1981 The visionaries asked what Our Lady wanted of them later on in life. "I would like you to become priests and religious, but only if you, yourselves, would want it. It is up to you to decide." 

 

AUGUST 2, 1981: From Marija's room, Our Lady asks her and 40 others: "All of you together go to the meadow at Gumno. A great struggle is about to unfold. A struggle between my Son and Satan. Human souls are at stake." [At Gumno] "Everyone here may touch me." [When Our Lady's dress became stained, Marinko invited all to go to confession.] 

 

AUGUST 6, 1981 The Transfiguration: "I am the Queen of Peace." 

 

AUGUST 7, 1981: Our Lady asked the young people to come to Cross Mountain at 2:00am and to pray that many people would do penance for sinners. "That one do penance for sins." 

 

AUGUST 8, 1981: "Do penance! Strengthen your faith through prayer and the sacraments." 

 

AUGUST 17, 1981: "Do not be afraid. I wish that you would be filled with joy and that the joy could be seen on your face. I will protect Father Jozo." [The pastor was put in jail.] 

 

AUGUST 22, 1981: "Father Jozo has nothing to fear. All troubles will pass." 

 

AUGUST 23, 1981: "Praise be Jesus! I have been with Ivan until now. Pray, my angels, for these people. My children, I give you strength. I will always give it to you. When you need me, call me." 

 

AUGUST 25, 1981: Some of the people present asked to touch the Virgin. "It is not necessary to touch me. Many are those who do not feel anything when they touch me. On the matter of the sign, you do not have to become impatient for the day will come." Our Lady also said there was a spy among those gathered. 

 

AUGUST 26, 1981: Because the visionaries see Our Lady, many have been seeking their advice. Our Lady responds: "Praise be Jesus. Do not give advice to anyone. I know what you feel and that will pass, also." 

 

AUGUST 27, 1981: On this day the visionaries again asked something regarding the sign. "Very soon, I promise you. Be strong and courageous." 

 

AUGUST 28, 1981: The visionaries have been waiting for the Virgin in Father Jozo's room. She does not come. This is the second time this has happened. The visionaries go to church to pray and Our Lady appears to them there. "I was with Father Jozo. That is why I did not come. Do not trouble yourselves if I do not come. It suffices then to pray." This is the day Ivan entered the seminary at Visoko. Our Lady told him: "You are very tired. Rest, so that you can find strength. Go in the peace of God. Good-bye." 

 

AUGUST 29, 1981: Jakov asks Our Lady several questions. 'Are you also appearing to Ivan in the seminary?' "Yes, just like for you." 'Is Ivan Ivankovic, who is in prison, well? "He is well. He is enduring everything. All will pass. Father Jozo sends you greetings." Ivan at the seminary wants to know about the village. "My angels perform their penance well." Ivan asked Our Lady whether She was going to help him and his friends in school. "God's help manifests itself everywhere. Go in the peace of God with the blessing of Jesus and mine. Good-bye." Ivanka asks if a sign will be left soon. "Again, a little patience." 

 

AUGUST 30, 1981: Our Lady arrived and Vicka asks for confirmation about rumors that Father Jozo's cell doors unlock themselves. "Praise be Jesus! It is true, but no one believes it." Ivanka asked about Mirjana. "Mirjana is sad because she is all alone. I will show her to you." And the visionaries saw Mirjana crying. Regarding young people who betray the faith. "Yes, there are many." Regarding a woman who wants to leave her husband because he is cruel to her: "Let her remain close to him and accept her suffering. Jesus, Himself, also suffered." Regarding a sick young boy: "He is suffering from a very grave illness. Let his parents firmly believe, do penance, then the little boy will be cured." Jakov asks about the sign. "Again, a little patience." Ivan wants to know how he will do in seminary. "Be without fear. I am close to you everywhere and at all times." Ivan asks if the people in his village are pious. "Your village has become the most fervent parish in Hercegovina. A large number of people distinguish themselves through their piety and their faith." End of August:The visionaries asked which is the best form of fasting. "A fast on bread and water." "I am the Queen of Peace." 

 

SEPTEMBER 1, 1981: The visionaries ask if there will be a Mass on Mt. Krizevac. "Yes, my angels." Jakov asks if a trap is being set around the church. "There's nothing at all. Have the people pray and remain in church as long as possible." Ivan prayed with Our Lady so that Jesus would help him in his vocation. Our Lady said: "Go in the peace of God. Do not be afraid. I am close to you and I will watch over you." 

 

SEPTEMBER 2, 1981: Vicka asked about a young person who hanged himself. "Satan took hold of him. This young man should not have done that. The Devil tries to reign over the people. He takes everything into his hands, but the force of God is more powerful, and God will conquer." Ivan wants to know how his friends and he will do in seminary. "You are, and you will always be my children. You have followed the path of Jesus. No one will stop you from propagating the faith in Jesus. One must believe strongly." 

 

SEPTEMBER 3, 1981: Jakov asked when the sign would be announced. "Again, a little patience." 

 

SEPTEMBER 4, 1981: Ivanka and Marija are concerned that they will not have enough time to pray because they are only home on Saturdays and Sundays and far away at school during the week. (Marija stays in Mostar with relatives.) "It is enough for you to pray. Come here on Saturdays and Sundays. I will appear to all of you." Ivan asks when Our Lady will leave the sign. "The sign will be given at the end of the apparitions." Ivan inquires when that will be. "You are impatient, my angels. Go in the peace of God." 

 

SEPTEMBER 5, 1981: "Praise be Jesus and Mary. Go in the peace of God, my angel. May the blessing of God accompany you. Amen. Good-bye." 

 

SEPTEMBER 6, 1981: "Pray especially on Sunday, so that the great sign, the gift of God may come. Pray with fervor and constancy so that God may have mercy on His great children. Go in peace, my angel. May the blessing of God accompany you. Amen. Good-bye." 

 

SEPTEMBER 7, 1981: "Be converted all of you who are still there. The sign will come when you will be converted." 

 

SEPTEMBER 8, 1981 Feast of the Nativity Of The Virgin: "I ask only to pray with fervor. Prayer must become a part of your daily life to permit the true faith to take root." Jakov wishes Our lady a happy birthday. "For me it is a beautiful day. With respect to you, persevere in the faith and in prayer. Do not be afraid. Remain in joy. It is my desire. Let joy appear on your faces. I will continue to protect Father Jozo." 

 

SEPTEMBER 10, 1981: Ivan reports that after praying beautiful prayers with a feeling from the heart filled with love and joy Our Lady says: "Go in the peace of God, my angel. Amen. Good-bye." 

 

SEPTEMBER 13, 1981: The Virgin came near the image of Jesus after some seminary students came from confession. "This is your Father*, my angel. Go in the peace of God, my angels." * Many known mystics referred, of course, to Jesus as our Brother but in some rare occasions also as our Father. This is theologically right, if unusual.. 

 

SEPTEMBER 14, 1981: Our Lady told Vicka: "Stay here so that Jakov will not be alone. Persevere, both of you, with patience. You will be rewarded." 

 

SEPTEMBER 15, 1981: "If the people are not converted very soon, bad things will happen to them." 

 

SEPTEMBER 16, 1981: "The militia will not stay here a long time. I will leave the sign. Be patient still. Don't pray for yourselves. You have been rewarded. Pray for others." 

 

SEPTEMBER 17, 1981: Concerning someone ill. "He will die very soon." To the visionaries: "Persevere and you will be rewarded." 

 

SEPTEMBER 20, 1981: To Vicka and Jakov: "Do not be lax in your prayers. I ask both of you to fast for a week on bread and water." 

 

SEPTEMBER 30, 1981: To Vicka and Jakov: "Don't ask useless questions dictated by curiosity. The most important thing is to pray, my angels." 

 

OCTOBER 1, 1981: Are all religions the same? "Members of all faiths are equal before God. God rules over each faith just like a sovereign over his kingdom. In the world, all religions are not the same because all people have not complied with the commandments of God. They reject and disparage them."  Are all churches the same? "In some, the strength of prayer to God is greater, in others, smaller. That depends on the priests who motivate others to pray. It depends also on the power which they have." Why do You appear to us so often and to others who do not follow God's path?* "I appear to you often and in every place. To others, I appear from time to time briefly. They do not yet follow the way of God completely. They are not aware of the gift which He has made them. That, no one deserves. with time, they also will come to follow the right way." * This must be about other apparitions in Hercegovina. 

 

OCTOBER 6, 1981: "The evening Mass must be kept permanently. The Mass of the sick must be celebrated on a specific day, at a time which is most convenient. Father Tomislav must begin with the prayer group. It is very necessary. Have Father Tomislav pray with fervor." 

 

OCTOBER 7, 1981: In answer to the question whether there are other intermediaries, besides Jesus, between God and Man? "There is only one mediator between God and man, and it is Jesus Christ." In answer to Father Tomislav regarding founding a community like that of Saint Francis of Assisi: "God has chosen Saint Francis as His elected one. It would be good to imitate his life. In the meantime, we must realize what God orders us to do." 

 

OCTOBER 8, 1981: Our Lady has scolded Marija about missing Mass and staying with her friends. "You would have done better to attend Mass rather than to satisfy human curiosity." 

 

OCTOBER 10, 1981: "It is up to you to pray and to persevere. I have made promises to you; also be without anxiety. Faith will not know how to be alive without prayer. Pray more." 

 

OCTOBER 11, 1981: The visionaries ask about an old man who disappeared. "Tomo Lovic is dead." 

 

OCTOBER 12, 1981: Where is Paradise and the Kingdom of God? "In Heaven." Our Lady is asked if she is the Mother of God and if She went to heaven before or after Her death. "I am the Mother of God and the Queen of Peace. I went to Heaven before death." When will the sign be left? "I will not yet leave the sign. I shall continue to appear. Father Jozo sends you greetings. He is experiencing difficulties, but he will resist, because he knows why he is suffering." 

 

OCTOBER 17, 1981: On the sign: "It is mine to realize the promise. With respect to the faithful, have them pray and believe firmly." 

 

OCTOBER 19, 1981: "Pray for Father Jozo and fast tomorrow on bread and water. The you will fast for a whole week on bread and water. Pray, my angels. Now I will show you Father Jozo. She shows them a vision of Father Jozo in prison and tells them not to fear for him because everything will work out fine. On Marinko, the man who protected the visionaries: "There are a few similar faithful. He's made a sufficient number of sacrifices for Jozo. He underwent many torments and sufferings." To Marinko personally: "Continue, and do not let anyone take the faith away from you." 

 

OCTOBER 20, 1981: Vicka asked Our Lady to intercede for Father Jozo during his trial and even to strike someone to stop the trial. Our Lady sings with the visionaries: "Jesus Christ in Your Name." After the song was completed, Our Lady said: "Go in the peace of God." 

 

OCTOBER 21, 1981: Because Vicka is concerned about Fr. Jozo's sentencing and knows that Our Lady is not motivated by vengeance, she begs Her to intercede that the people involved be reasonable and impartial. "Jozo looks well and he greets you warmly. Do not fear for Jozo. He is a saint. I have already told you. Sentence will not be pronounced this evening. Do not be afraid, he will not be condemned to a severe punishment. Pray only, because Jozo asks from you prayer and perseverance. Do not be afraid because I am with you." 

 

OCTOBER 22, 1981: "Jozo has been sentenced. Let us go to church to pray." The visionaries tell Our Lady they are saddened because of Father Jozo. "You should rejoice!" The visionaries ask if the whiteness of the cross is a supernatural phenomenon. "Yes, I confirm it." Many saw the cross transform itself into a light and then into a silhouette of Our Lady. "All of these signs are designed to strengthen your faith until I leave you the visible and permanent sign." 

 

OCTOBER 25, 1981: The visionaries asked Our Lady about the great light three girls saw on their way home from Mass. Within the light, they saw fifteen figures. "It was a supernatural phenomenon. I was among the saints." 

 

OCTOBER 26, 1981: "Praise be Jesus. You are not to ask me any more questions on the subject of the sign. Do not be afraid, it will surely appear. I carry out my promises. As far as you are concerned, pray, persevere in prayer." 

 

OCTOBER 28, 1981: The visionaries ask if the Gospa appeared at Krizevac the day before for thirty minutes. "Yes, didn't you see me?" Regarding the fire that hundreds of people saw that burned but did not consume anything. "The fire, seen by the faithful, was of a supernatural character. It is one of the signs, a forerunner of the great sign." 

 

OCTOBER 29, 1981: "You, my angels, be on your guard. There is enough mendacious news which people are spreading. Of course, I will show you my mercy. Be a little patient. Pray!" 

 

OCTOBER 30, 1981: Jakov and Vicka questioned Our Lady about a sealed envelope which an official showed them wishing to trick them. "Do not respond to anything. It is a bad trick which they are playing on you. They have already given so much false news. Do not believe them. Continue to pray and to suffer! I will make the power of love appear." The visionaries asked Our Lady when should Christmas Mass be celebrated. "Have them celebrate it at midnight. Pray! Go in the peace of God." To Ivanka: "Pray more. The others are praying and suffering more than you." To the visionaries: "Tell the young people not to allow themselves to be distracted from the true way. Let them remain faithful to their religion." 

 

OCTOBER 31, 1981: From Vicka's diary we learn that Mirjana has had daily apparitions in Sarajevo where she is a student at a professional school. Our Lady counsels Mirjana as a wise mother would, telling her two times who to trust, who to distrust, and how to respond to those who rebuke her and attack God. Our Lady knows and advised Mirjana to avoid a friend who wants her to get involved with drugs. Our lady suggested that she answer questions when that would be helpful and to remain quiet when that would be more beneficial. Our Lady shared Her joy over the five visionaries being together and tells them that Father Jozo would not be in prison more than four years. Regarding Danny Ljolje, Our Lady said: "There is a lot of deception and erroneous information." After showing the visionaries a part of paradise and telling them not to be afraid, Our lady said: "All those who are faithful to God will have that." 

 

OCTOBER, 1981: Concerning the conflict between the Franciscans and the Bishop of Mostar: "It is going to find a solution. We must have patience and pray." Regarding Poland: "There will be great conflicts, but in the end, the just will take over." Regarding Russia: "The Russian people will be the people who will glorify God the most. The West has made civilization progress, but without God, as if they were their own creators." 

 

NOVEMBER 1, 1981: "Be persevering! Pray! Many people are beginning to convert." 

 

NOVEMBER 2, 1981: The visionaries questioned the Gospa about Her reasons for showing them paradise some days earlier. "I did that so you could see the happiness which awaits those who love God." Jesus then appears to them with injuries covering His body and wearing a crown of thorns. "Do not be afraid. It is my Son. See how He has been martyred. In spite of all, He was joyful and He endured all with patience." Then Jesus says: "Look at me. How I have been injured and martyred! In spite of all, I have gained the victory. You also, my angels, be persevering in your faith and pray so that you may overcome." 

 

NOVEMBER 3, 1981: The song, 'Come, Come to us Lord', was begun by Our Lady and the visionaries joined in with her. "I am often at Krizevac, at the foot of the cross, to pray there. Now I pray to my Son to forgive the world its sins. The world has begun to convert." 

 

NOVEMBER 6, 1981: During this apparition, Our Lady disappears and the visionaries see a terrifying vision of Hell. Then Our Lady reappears and says: "Do not be afraid! I have shown you Hell so that you may know the state of those who are there.": November 8, 1981: Our Lady appears kissing and lovingly embracing a picture of John Paul II. "He is your father, the spiritual father of all. It is necessary to pray for him." One account tells of Our Lady picking up the picture in the room. The visionaries have a vision of Father Jozo in prison. "Have you seen how Father Jozo struggles for God?" 

 

NOVEMBER 9, 1981: The militia passes by the room where Our Lady was about to appear. "Do not be afraid of the militia. Do not provoke anybody. Be polite with everybody." 

 

NOVEMBER 10, 1981: "Do not give in. Keep your faith. I will accompany you at every step." 

 

NOVEMBER 13, 1981: "Praise be Jesus!" Our Lady showed the visionaries a beautiful landscape with the Baby Jesus walking there. The visionaries were not able to recognize Him. "It is Jesus. On my arrival and when I depart, always sing the song, 'Come, Come to us O Lord'." 

 

NOVEMBER 15, 1981: This apparition was to take place in Fr. Jozo's room but Our Lady appeared later in the Church and said someone had placed (hidden) listening devices in the room. She relates: "The world is on the point of receiving great favors from me and my Son. May the world keep a strong confidence." 

 

NOVEMBER 16, 1981: "The devil is trying to conquer us. Do not permit him. Keep the faith, fast, and pray. I will be with you at every step." Her words to Vicka and Jakov: "Persevere with confidence in prayer and in faith." 

 

NOVEMBER 22, 1981: The Gospa explains the cross, the heart, and the sun to the visionaries. "These are the signs of salvation: The cross is a sign of mercy, just like the heart. The sun is the source of light, which enlightens us." Again a shining silhouette takes the place of the cross on Krizevac. The visionaries asked the Blessed Virgin if it was She. "Why do you ask me, my angels? Have you not seen me? The world must find salvation while there is time. Let it pray with fervor. May it have the spirit of faith." 

 

NOVEMBER 23, 1981: Our Lady was indescribable and beautiful light radiated, flowed, shined, and sparkled around Her. "The people have begun to convert. Keep a solid faith. I need your prayers." 

 

NOVEMBER 26, 1981: The visionaries asked the Gospa questions about the sick: "Have strong faith, pray, and fast and they will be cured. Be confident and rest in joy. Go in the peace of God. Be patient and pray for the cure. Good- bye, my dear angels." 

 

NOVEMBER 28, 1981: All but Ivan were present. Vicka relates, "We all felt a profound peace about and within us. Our Lady looked at us with a beautiful sweetness." "Ah, it is so beautiful to see you all together! Go in the peace of God, my angels. Good-bye." 

 

NOVEMBER 29, 1981: "It is necessary for the world to be saved while there is still time, for it to pray strongly, and for it to have the spirit of faith." 

 

NOVEMBER 1981: Vicka warns that this message is not just for the visionaries but for all. "The Devil tries to impose his power on you, but you must remain strong and persevere in your faith. You must pray and fast. I will always be close to you." 

 

DECEMBER 2, 1981: The visionaries asked about a young man who suddenly had a memory loss and could no longer learn anything: "It is necessary to hospitalize him." The visionaries asked more questions. "It is not necessary to ask questions on every subject." 

 

DECEMBER 3, 1981: "Pray and persevere through prayer." 

 

DECEMBER 6, 1981: "Be strong and persevering. My dear angels, go in the peace of God." 

 

DECEMBER 7, 1981: Our Lady looked at the crowds of people. "The people are converting. It is true, but not yet all. Pray and persist in prayers." After an apparition at Jakov's home, the letters "MIR LJUDIMA" (Peace to the people) were on the wall in gold. 

 

DECEMBER 8, 1981 Feast of the Immaculate Conception: Our Lady answers questions the visionaries have about their futures. "I would like all of you to become priests and religious, but only if you desire it. You are free. It is up to you to choose. If you are experiencing difficulties or if you need something, come to me. If you do not have the strength to fast on bread and water, you can give up a number of things. It would be a good thing to give up television, because after seeing some programs, you are distracted and unable to pray. You can give up alcohol, cigarettes, and other pleasures. You yourselves know what you have to do." Our Lady then profoundly kneels down, serious with Her hands extended. She prays to Jesus: "My beloved Son, I beseech you to be willing to forgive the world its great sin through which it offends you." 

 

DECEMBER 9, 1981: While we were praying, Our Lady intervened: "Oh my Son Jesus, forgive these sins; there are so many of them!" We stopped and became silent. "Continue to pray, because prayer is the salvation of the people." 

 

DECEMBER 11, 1981: Vicka asked the Gospa to look after her parents in Germany "I promise to protect them. Everything will go well." 

 

DECEMBER 12, 1981: Our Lady told the visionaries She was happy because they would all be together during vacation. "Very soon you will all be united. You will be able to have a beautiful time together." 

 

DECEMBER 16, 1981: "Kneel down, my children, and pray." 

 

DECEMBER 18, 1981: Our Lady sings "Jesus Christ in Your Name" and says: "Come on, sing more joyfully. Why are you so pensive?" She then began the song, "The Queen of the Holy Rosar", before leaving. 

 

DECEMBER 21, 1981: "Be on your guard, my children. Prepare yourselves for difficult days. All kinds of people will come here." 

 

DECEMBER 24, 1981: "Celebrate the days which are coming. Rejoice with my Son! Love your neighbor. May harmony reign among you." 

 

DECEMBER 25, 1981 Christmas: The visionaries see Baby Jesus. "Love one another, my children. You are brothers and sisters. Don't argue among yourselves. Give glory to God, glorify Him and sing, my angels." 

 

DECEMBER 30, 1981: Our Lady sings "The Queen of the Holy Rosary". 

 

DECEMBER 31, 1981: Ivan asked the Gospa how to help doubting priests understand the apparitions. "It is necessary to tell them that from the very beginning I have been conveying the message of God to the world. It is a great pity not to believe in it. Faith is a vital element, but one cannot compel a person t believe. Faith is the foundation from which everything flows." Ivan asks Our Lady if it is really She appearing at the foot of the cross. "Yes, it is true. Almost everyday I am at the foot of the cross. My Son carried the cross. he has suffered on the cross, and by it, he saved the world. Everyday I pray to my Son to forgive the sins of the world." 

 

1981: Vicka says that at the very beginning Our Lady told us: "You may leave, but let little Jakov stay with me." Vicka then adds that Our Lady realizes that Jakov is an extraordinary boy. 

 

1982  

 

JANUARY, 1982 THE APPARITION CHAPEL: In January, the visionaries were moved to a side room to the right of the Alter of St. James Church. This room was to become famous and considered by many as sacred ground. Presently, many pilgrims take great joy in participating at Mass, which is sometimes held in the "Chapel". Thousands of apparitions took place in the "Chapel" and one could say that Our Lady dwelled there. 

 

JANUARY 11, 1982: "I invite you very specially to participate at Mass. Wait for me at church, that is the agreeable place." 

 

JANUARY 14, 1982: Today, toward the end of the apparition, two of the visionaries were reprimanded by Our Lady. The other visionaries could not hear this correction for their behavior but Our Lady's expression gave them an indication what it was about. Those reprimanded later said that Our Lady was kind and respectful to them. 

 

JANUARY, 18, 1982: Concerning a sick person with heart problems: "There is little hope for her. I will pray for her." 

 

JANUARY 20, 1982: The visionaries want to know if they should meet with children from Izbicno who are also visionaries. They tell the Blessed Virgin that the Izbicno children said She told them about this meeting. "It is not necessary for you to meet them." The officials want to transfer Father Tomislav. "If it is God's design that he (Father Tomislav depart as has been the case with Father Jozo, have him abandon himself to the will of God. He must think very much and you must pray for him." 

 

JANUARY 21, 1982: Again the visionaries ask about the sign. "The sign will appear at the desired time." Our Lady is asked why apparitions occur at different places in Hercegovina. "My children, don't you see that the faith begins to extinguish itself and that it is necessary to awaken the faith among men?" The visionaries want to know how they can get peace to witness among the priests. "Fast and pray!" 

 

JANUARY 22, 1982: Concerning apparitions at Izbicno. "They are coming from God." Izbicno is 60 kilo meters from Medjugorje. Eighteen people, mostly females, said they are having apparitions between 1982-1983. 

 

FEBRUARY 2, 1982: Our Lady was asked when She would like the Feast of The Queen of Peace to be celebrated. She smiled and said: "I would prefer that it take place June 25th. The faithful have come for the first time on that day, on the hill." 

 

FEBRUARY 8, 1982: The visionaries asked about an emotionally sick person. "He must pray. I will help him within the limitation of my power." To some Slovenes who were praying during the apparition: "Persevere in prayer." 

 

FEBRUARY 9, 1982: "Pray for the sick. Believe firmly. I will come to help, according to that which is within my power. I will ask my Son, Jesus, to help them. The most important thing, in the meantime, is a strong faith. Numerous sick persons think that is sufficient to come here in order to be quickly healed. Some of them do not even believe in God and even less in the apparitions, and then they ask help from the Gospa!" 

 

FEBRUARY 10, 1982: Jakov and Vicka ask Our Lady many questions and She answers them. They relate that Our Lady loves the Creed and prefers it to other prayers. They say they have never seen Her happier than during this prayer. Our Lady's message: "Pray, pray! It is necessary to believe firmly, to go to confession regularly, and likewise to receive Holy Communion. It is the only salvation." 

 

FEBRUARY 11, 1982: "Pray my angels, persevere! Do not let the enemy take possession of you in anything. Be courageous. Go in the peace of God, my angels. Good-bye." 

 

FEBRUARY 12, 1982: "Be more calm, more poised. Do not take sides with other children. Be agreeable, well mannered, and pious!" The visionaries relate that Our Lady prays with Her hands folded and when She speaks, She spreads them and raises them toward Heaven.

FEBRUARY 14, 1982: The visionaries are happy because four of them are together. "Be together like brothers and sisters, Do not argue. Satan exists! He seeks only to destroy. With regard to you, pray and persevere in prayer. No one will be able to do anything against you." 

 

FEBRUARY 16, 1982: "Satan only says what he wants. He interferes in everything. You, my angels, be ready to endure everything. Here, many things will take place. Do not allow yourselves to be surprised by him." 

 

FEBRUARY 19, 1982: Vicka's diary states that the visionaries ask Our Lady if they could pray the Hail Mary and She says yes. Our Lady smiled as they prayed but did not pray with them. Vicka writes that seeing Our Lady, Her beauty, is indescribable and she would do whatever She asks. "Listen attentively at Holy Mass. Be well mannered. Do not chat during Holy Mass." 

 

FEBRUARY, 21, 1982: "Be together, do not argue, and do not be disorderly. My angels, I will make you attentive. I will guide you on a sure way." 

 

FEBRUARY 23, 1982: The visionaries ask if someone is alive. "Do not ask me any more questions! I know what there is in every sick person or what there is within my power to help him. I will pray to my Son to put out His mercy on each one."

Take them up later, when it will be possible." 

 

MARCH 2, 1982: Smiling at two large pictures of the Pope brought by a woman from Osijek, Our Lady said: "He is your father, my angels." Our Lady began the Lord's Prayer, and on leaving said: "Open the door well, follow the mass well! Go in the peace of God, my angels! If you suffer for a just cause, blessings will be still more abundant for you." 

 

MARCH 4, 1982: Regarding a woman who had no children: "Let her believe firmly. God, who comes to help everyone, will likewise help her. Be patient, my angels, do not be afraid of anything. 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. Go in peace, my angles. Good-bye."

APRIL 24, 1982: Concerning what needs to be done in order to have more cures: "Pray! Pray and believe firmly. Say the prayers which have already been requested. (The Lord's Prayer, the Hail Mary, and the Glory Be seven times each, and the Creed.) Do more penance." 

 

MAY 2, 1982: "I have come to call the world to conversion for the last time. Afterwards, I will not appear any more on this earth." 

 

MAY 6, 1982: Concerning putting the date and description of the sign in a sealed envelop and putting it in the archives: "No! I have entrusted that only to you. You will unveil it when I will tell you. Many persons will not believe you, I know, and you will suffer very much for it. But you will endure everything and you will finally be the happiest." 

 

MAY 13, 1982: Concerning the assassination attempt on the life of John Paul II: "His enemies have wanted to kill him, but I protected him." 

 

SPRING 1982: The Pastor at Izbicno has the visionaries ask concerning all of the signs in Hercegovina and Our Lady's appearing in so many places: "It is God who gives them. My children, have you not observed that faith began to extinguish itself? There are many who do not come to church except through habit. It is necessary to awaken the faith. It is a gift from God. If it is necessary, I will appear in each home." To Jakov, crying because he saw Vicka ill: "The cross is necessary because of the sins of the world." 

 

JUNE 23, 1982: Responses from Our Lady regarding questions asked by Father Tomislav Vlasic. Vicka asked the Gospa the questions for Father Tomislav. He reported the answers in the parish chronicle. 1. The most important thing is that you, the visionaries, remain united. Let peace be among you. Pay very close attention to that. Obey and do what the priests and your parents tell you. Go often to Holy Mass and receive Communion. Be very attentive these days. Some dishonest people will come to you, in numbers, in order to tempt you. Be careful of your statements. These days I am expecting of you a very special discipline. Do not move around anywhere, or often, and do not separate from one another. 2. A number of those who have been very enthusiastic will cool off. But you, persist and be proud of each of my words. Have the people pray very much. Have them pray more for salvation and only for salvation, because it is in prayer. And let the people be converted so long as it is possible. There are many sins, vexations, curse words, lies, and other bad things. Let them be converted, go to confession, and receive Holy Communion. 3. Let them not print books on the apparitions before the anniversary has passed, because that could have some undesirable consequences. 4. You have asked me to keep good and faithful priests in this parish who will continue the work. Do not be afraid of anything. This grace will be given to you. From priests, I do not demand anything other than prayer with perseverance and preaching. May they be patient and wait for the promise of God. Concerning the number of natures of the Holy Spirit: 5. He only has one nature, the Divine nature. Concerning these apparitions being the last ones on earth: 6. These apparitions are the last in the world. 

 

JUNE 24, 1982: "Thank the people in my name for the prayers, the sacrifices, and the (acts of) penance. Have them persevere in prayer, fasting, and conversion and have them wait with patience for the realization of my promise. Everything is unfolding according to God's plan." 

 

JULY 12, 1982: Concerning a third world war: "The third world war will not take place." 

 

JULY 21, 1982: Concerning Purgatory: "There are many souls in Purgatory. There are also persons who have been consecrated to God - some priests, some religious. Pray for their intentions, at least the Lord's Prayer, the Hail Mary, and the Glory Be seven times each, and the Creed. I recommend it to you. There is a large number of souls who have been in purgatory for a long time because no one prays for them."  Concerning Fasting: "The best fast is on bread and water. Through fasting and prayer, one can stop wars, one can suspend the laws of nature. Charity cannot replace fasting. Those who are not able to fast can sometime replace it with prayer, charity, and a confession; but everyone, except the sick, must fast." 

 

JULY 24, 1982: "You go to Heaven in full conscience: that which you have now. At the moment of death, you are conscious of the separation of the body and soul. It is false to teach people that you are reborn many times and that you pass to different bodies. One is born only once. The body, drawn from the earth, decomposes after death. It never comes back to life again. Man receives a transfigured body." Regarding a question asked about being bad all ones life and asking forgiveness: "Whoever has done very much evil during his life can go straight to Heaven if he confesses, is sorry for what he has done, and receives Communion at the end of his life." 

 

JULY 25, 1982: Concerning Hell: "Today many persons go to Hell. God allows His children to suffer in Hell due to the fact that they have committed grave, unpardonable sins. Those who are in Hell no longer have a chance to know a lot better." Other answers from Our Lady state that people who commit grave sins live in Hell while here on earth and continue this Hell in eternity. They actually go to Hell because they chose it in life and at the moment of death." Concerning cures: "For the cure of the sick, it is important to say the following prayers: the Creed, and seven times each, The Lord's Prayer, the Hail Mary, and the Glory Be, and to fast on bread and water. It is good to impose one's hands on the sick and to pray. It is good to anoint the sick with Holy oil. All priests do not have the gift of healing. In order to receive this gift, the priest must pray with perseverance and believe firmly." 

 

AUGUST 6, 1982 The Transfiguration: Concerning Confession: "One must invite people to go to Confession each month, especially the first Saturday. Here, I have not spoken of it yet. I have invited people to frequent Confession. I will give you yet some concrete messages for our time. Be patient because the time has not yet come. Do what I have told you. They are numerous who do not observe it. Monthly Confession will be a remedy for the Church in the West. One must convey this message to the West." That night, after the apparition, two luminary signs in the form of rays of light were displayed on the Cross at Krizevac and on the Church. Ivan and the group of young people had been praying on the hill of Bijakovici. Before the sign appeared, Our Lady said: "Now I am going to give you a sign in order to strengthen your faith." Many members of the prayer group saw this sign.  

 

AUGUST 10, 1982: Our Lady told the visionaries that they could give out written information about certain things. 

 

AUGUST 11, 1982: The visionaries were scolded by Our Lady for their conduct during the evening Mass. No special message was given. 

 

AUGUST 15, 1982: Vicka and Ivanka were given a new secret during the seven-minute apparition. The others could not understand - only that a secret had been given. 

 

AUGUST 16, 1982: Our Lady corrected the speed and quality of the prayers of those in Church as well as the visionaries. During the apparition, Mirjana reports that she sees heavenly persons, such as Jesus, Mary, and the angels, in three dimensions (as another human person would have seen), and earthly people in two dimensions (as in a picture or photograph). She saw father Jozo or Ivan, who have been imprisoned because of their faith, as if in a motion picture and two dimensional. 

 

AUGUST 18, 1982: Concerning the sick, Mirjana reports: "Have them believe and pray; I cannot help him who does not pray and does not sacrifice. The sick, just like those who are in good health, must pray and fast for the sick. The more you believe firmly, the more you pray and fast for the same intention, the greater is the grace and the mercy of God." Concerning a planned marriage between a Catholic and an Orthodox: "In my eyes and in the sight of God, everything is equal. But for you, it is not the same thing because you are divided. If it is possible, it is better if she were not to marry this man because she will suffer and her children also. She will be able to live and follow only with difficulty, the way of her faith." 

 

AUGUST 29, 1982: Concerning reports that the apparitions have divided the priests in Hercegovina: "I have not desired your division. On the contrary, I desire that you be united. Do not ignore the fact that I am the Queen of Peace. If you desire practical advice: I am the Mother who has come from the people; I cannot do anything without the help of God. I, too, must pray like you. It is because of that, that I can only say to you: Pray, fast, do penance, and help the weak. I am sorry if my preceding answer was not agreeable to you. Perhaps you do not want to understand it." 

 

AUGUST 31, 1982: "I do not dispose all graces. I receive from God what I obtain through prayer. God has placed His complete trust in me. I particularly protect those who have been consecrated to me. The great sign has been granted. It will appear independently of the conversion of the people." 

 

SEPTEMBER 4, 1982: "Jesus prefers that you address yourselves directly to Him rather than through an intermediary. In the meantime, if you wish to give yourselves completely to God and if you wish that I be your protector, then confide to me all your intentions, your fasts, and your sacrifices so that I can dispose of them according to the will of God." 

 

SEPTEMBER 26, 1982: Concerning a religious from Rome: "Have her strengthen the faith of those who have been entrusted to her." Concerning Father Robert Faricy and Fr. Forrest: "They are on the good path. Have them persist." Concerning the Pope: "Have him consider himself the father of all mankind and not only of Christians. Have him spread untiringly and with courage the message of peace and love among all mankind." 

 

OCTOBER 1, 1982: "I am happy because you have begun to prepare the monthly observance of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. That will be good for the whole world. Persevere in prayer. It is the true way which leads you toward my Son." 

 

NOVEMBER 4, 1982: Concerning the vision of Andja, from Mostar, of 13 people coming from the East and on another occasion, six persons: "It is a true vision. They were some souls of her close family of Purgatory. It is necessary to pray for them." 

 

NOVEMBER 6, 1982: Concerning the eighth secret, Mirjana is frightened and prays to Our Lady for mercy on mankind: "I have prayed; the punishment has been softened. Repeated prayers and fasting reduce punishments from God, but it is not possible to avoid entirely the chastisement. Go on the streets of the city, count those who glorify God and those who offend Him. God can no longer endure that." 

 

NOVEMBER 8, 1982: Concerning the necessity of writing to the Bishop and priests about asking the faithful to intensify their prayers or waiting for other events: "It is better to wait than to precipitate that." 

 

NOVEMBER 15, 1982: Jakov asked Our Lady concerning Vicka's illness and the advisability of her being admitted to a hospital in Zagreb. He asked because Vicka would not ask, desiring it to be left to the will of God. "It is necessary to send Vicka to Zagreb." 

 

DECEMBER 18, 1982: Concerning responding to the Bishop of Mostar about his article concerning events in Medjugorje: "Yes, respond!" 

 

DECEMBER 20, 1982: Concerning the same article, the visionaries wanted to know the necessity of giving objective information to the faithful in Hercegovina. "No!" Should the visionaries only pray with our Lady and the pilgrims ask their questions only to the priests? "Yes, it is better that the children pray with me and that the pilgrims ask the priests and look for solutions with them. Meanwhile, I will continue to answer the questions which they ask me." 

 

DECEMBER 25, 1982: This is the information which Mirjana gave to Father Tomislav on November 5, 1983. He conveyed this information to the Pope on December 16, 1983. Father Vlasic's letter was published in "Is the Virgin Mary appearing at Medjugorje?" (Paris, 1984), with this introduction: During the apparition of December 25, 1982, according to Mirjana, the Madonna confided to her the tenth and last secret, and revealed to her, the dates in which the different secrets will be realized. The Blessed Virgin revealed to Mirjana some aspects of the future, up to this point, in greater detail than to the other seers. For this reason, I am reporting here what Mirjana told me in a conversation of November 5, 1983. I summarized the essentials of her account, without literal quotation. Mirjana told me::  Before the visible sign is given to mankind, there will be three warnings to the world. The warnings will be in the form of events on earth. Mirjana will be a witness to them. Ten days before one of the admonitions, Mirjana will notify a priest of her choice. The witness of Mirjana will be a confirmation of the apparitions and a stimulus for the conversion of the world. After the admonitions, the visible sign will appear on the site of the apparitions in Medjugorje for all the world to see. The sign will be given as a testimony to the apparitions and in order to call people back to faith. The ninth and tenth secrets are serious. They concern chastisement for the sins of the world. Punishment is inevitable, for we cannot expect the whole world to be converted. The punishment can be diminished by prayer and penance, but it cannot be eliminated. Mirjana says that one of the evils that threatened the world, the one contained in the seventh secret, has been averted thanks to prayer and fasting. That is why the Blessed Virgin continues to encourage prayer and fasting: "You have forgotten that through prayer and fasting you can avert wars and suspend the laws of nature." After the first admonition, the others will follow in a rather short time. Thus, people will have some time for conversion. That interval will be a period of grace and conversion. After the visible sign appears, those who are still alive will have little time for conversion. For that reason, the Blessed Virgin invites us to urgent conversion and reconciliation. The invitation to prayer and penance is meant to avert evil and war, but most of all to save souls. According to Mirjana, the events predicted by the Blessed Virgin are near. By virtue of this experience, Mirjana proclaims to the world: 'Convert as quickly as possible. Open your hearts to God.' In addition to this basic message, Mirjana related an apparition she has in 1982 which we believe sheds some light on aspects of Church history. She spoke of an apparition in which Satan appeared to her. Satan asked Mirjana to renounce the Madonna and follow him. That way she could be happy in love and in life. He said that following the Virgin, on the contrary, would only lead to suffering. Mirjana rejected him, and immediately the Virgin gave her the following message, in substance: "Excuse me for this, but you must realize that Satan exists. One day he appeared before the throne of God and asked permission to submit the Church to a period of trial. God gave him permission to try the Church for one century. This century is under the power of the Devil, but when the secrets confided to you come to pass, his power will be destroyed. Even now he is beginning to lose his power and has become aggressive. He is destroying marriages, creating division among priests and is responsible for obsessions and murder. You must protect yourselves against these things through fasting and prayer, especially community prayer. Carry blessed objects with you. Put them in your house, and restore the use of holy water." 

 

DECEMBER 24, 1982: For Mirjana: "On Christmas I will appear to you for the last time." After this apparition, it was apparent that Mirjana was very sad. Mirjana stated that on Christmas day Our Lady would come to her again as a gift but would not be giving her daily apparitions. Mirjana was given the tenth secret, a particularly grave one. Our Lady promised to appear to Mirjana on her birthday, March 18, for the rest of her life. 

 

DECEMBER 25, 1982: Our Lady's apparition to Mirjana lasted 45 minutes. Mirjana states that she will always remember these words of Our Lady. "Now you will have to turn to God in the faith like any other person. I will appear to you on the day of your birthday and when you will experience difficulties in life. Mirjana, I have chosen you; I have confided in you everything that is essential. I have shown you many terrible things. You must now bear it all with courage. Think of Me and think of the tears I must shed for that. You must remain courageous. You have quickly grasped the messages. You must also understand now that I have to go away. Be courageous." Mirjana has said that Our Lady prepared her for this meeting for a month. In a motherly manner, Our Lady had explained that her task was accomplished and Mirjana had received sufficient information. While Mirjana felt that her conversations with Our Lady were so necessary for her soul, Our Lady promised that as long as she remained close to God, She would help her and be beside her always, assisting her in her most difficult times. But now she must return to the normal everyday life of young girls her age. This was Mirjana's saddest Christmas ever. This last meeting left her feeling as if she had lost the most beautiful thing in her life. Our Lady knew her pain and was there to cheer her up and to pray with her. Mirjana was asked to sing and praise God. Mirjana prayed the Hail Holy Queen, the prayer she always said when she was alone with Our Lady. As Our Lady has warned, the first month after this last apparition was most difficult. Mirjana experienced depression, avoided people, and shut herself in her room where she had waited for Our Lady. She cried and called out to Our Lady and did feel her presence. She waited for her birthday. Many who know Mirjana claim that since the apparitions stopped, she has become much more mature in her inner life as well as in her character. Our Lady has been the best of educators. 

 

DECEMBER 27, 1982: Concerning placing the new statue of Our Lady, Queen of Peace, in the church: "Yes, you may!" This statue was sculpted by Vipotnik and painted by Luka Stojaknac and Florijan Mickovic. Luka is Orthodox and working on this statue has been a blessing for him. 

 

DECEMBER 31, 1982: Concerning the new year: "Pray as much as possible and fast! You must persevere in prayer and fasting. I wish that the new year will be spent in prayer and penance. Persevere in prayer and in sacrifice and I will protect you and will hear your prayers." 

 

1983  

 

JANUARY 1, 1983 (Holy Mary, Mother of God) Concerning Our Lady's appearances to Mirjana: "After Christmas, I am no longer appearing to her for the present." 

 

JANUARY 5, 1983: Ivan, Jakov, Marija, and Vicka relate the following information to Father Tomislav: Marija has received seven secrets; Vicka has received eight; Jakov, Ivanka, and Ivan have received nine; and Mirjana has received all ten. As to how long the apparitions will last or why Our Lady no longer appears to Mirjana after Christmas, we do not know. Our Lady constantly invites us to prayer, fasting, and conversion and she confirms her promises. Regarding the time of the sign, it's month and year, Ivan says: "It is forecasted." 

 

JANUARY 7, 1983: The visionaries are invited to record Our Lady's testimony as She begins to tell them her life; but, until they receive Her authorization, they will not be able to make this information public. Jakov will receive information until April; Ivanka until May 22; Marija until July 17; and for Vicka, this transmission lasted until April 10, 1985 and filled three notebooks. 

 

JANUARY 10, 1983: Mirjana shared with Father Tomislav Vlasic that during the year and a half that she had been receiving apparitions, she had experienced the maternal love and intimacy of Our Lady and questioned Her why God could so "Mercilessly" send sinners to Hell forever. "Men who go to Hell no longer want to receive any benefit from God. They do not repent nor do they cease to revolt and to blaspheme. they make up their mind to live in Hell and do not contemplate leaving it." Regarding Purgatory: "In Purgatory there are different levels; the lowest is close to Hell and the highest gradually draws near to Heaven. It is not on All Souls Day, but at Christmas, that the greatest number of souls leave Purgatory. There are in Purgatory, souls who pray ardently to God, but for whom no relative or friend prays on earth. God makes them benefit from the prayers of other people. It happens that God permits them to manifest themselves in different ways, close to their relatives on earth, in order to remind men of the existence of Purgatory and to solicit their prayers to come close to God who is just, but good. The majority of people go to Purgatory. Many go to Hell. A small number go directly to Heaven." 

 

JANUARY 12, 1983: There were present a U.S. television crew that was filming the events in MedJugorje. Fr. John Bertolucci was the narrator. The name of the television program was "The Glory of God". Concerned about the police and the oppression still going on at that time, they were worried about getting the film out of the country. They were delighted and at the same time assured because Our Lady cleverly used their title in Her answer. "There will be some difficulties, but it will be for the glory of God." 

 

APRIL 21, 1983: To the visionaries especially Jakov concerning behavior during Mass and around others: "You must behave well; be pious and set a good example for the faithful." 

 

APRIL 24, 1983: Message for an Italian doctor: "I bless him just as [I bless] those who work with him at the hospital in Milan, for everything they are doing. Have them continue, and pray. I bless the sick of this hospital, just as the sick for whom you have prayed this evening, and those for whom you will pray." 

 

JUNE 1, 1983: "Dear children! I hoped that the world would begin to be converted on its own. Do now everything that you can so that the world can be converted." 

 

JUNE 2, 1983: "Read what has been written about Jesus. Meditate on it and convey it to others." 

 

JUNE 3, 1983: Concerning Father Tomislav Vlasic's attempt to form a prayer group, has it begun well? "Yes, it is good. Have him continue."  What should be done so that the authorities will not send away the priests of the parish who work with faith and love? "Pray and fast for this intention. I will tell you when the moment comes what you must do." Should Father Tomislav ask the parish to fast and pray in hopes that the Church will recognize the supernatural events taking place in Medjugorje? "Yes it is a good way. Have the parish pray for this gift. Have them pray also for the gift of the Holy Spirit so that all those who come here will feel the presence of God." 

 

JUNE 12, 1983: Concerning whether the priests should start new work around the church or ask permission from the authorities: "Do not begin the work until receiving permission from the authorities. Otherwise, someone will inform the latter and the works would be forbidden. Go, and kindly request the authorization. It will be given to you." 

 

JUNE 14, 1983: Concerning what the priests should preach during the ten anniversary days of the first apparition: "Have them do what they think is best. It would be good to remind the faithful of the events which have been happening here in relation to my coming. Have them remind the faithful of the reasons for my coming here." 

 

SPRING 1983: "Hasten your conversion. Do not await the sign which has been announced for those who do not believe; it will be too late. You who believe, be converted and deepen your faith." 

 

JUNE 24, 1983: "The sign will come, you must not worry about it. The only thing that I would want to tell you is to be converted. Make that known to all my children as quickly as possible. No pain, no suffering is too great for me in order to save you. I will pray to my Son not to punish the world; but I plead with you, be converted. You cannot imagine what is going to happen nor what the Eternal Father will send to earth. That is why you must be converted! Renounce everything. Do penance. Express my thanks to all my children who have prayed and fasted. I carry all this to my Divine Son in order to obtain an alleviation of His justice against the sins of mankind. I thank the people who have prayed and fasted. Persevere and help me to convert the world." 

 

JUNE 26, 1983: "Love your enemies. Pray for them and bless them." 

 

JULY 1, 1983: "I thank all those who have responded to my call. I bless all of you. I bless each of you. In these days, I ask you to pray for my intentions." 

 

JULY 1983: Regarding the problem with Bishop Zanic and the parish apparitions: "Fast two days a week for the intentions of the Bishop, who bears a heavy responsibility. If there is a need to, I will ask for a third day. Pray each day for the Bishop." 

 

JULY 26, 1983: "Dear Children, today I would like to invite you to constant prayer and penance. Particularly, have the young people of the parish become more active in their prayer." 

 

AUGUST 6, 1983: Jakov questions Our Lady concerning orders from the Bishop to have Father Pervan, the parish priest, stop the visionaries from saying the Rosary and The Lord's Prayer, the Hail Mary, and the Glory Be the customary seven times at the beginning of prayer: "If it is so, then do not go against it so as not to provoke any quarrels. If it is possible, talk about it tomorrow among yourselves. All of you come to an agreement beforehand." 

 

AUGUST 12, 1983: "Pray more for your spiritual life. Do your utmost in this sense. Pray for your Bishop." 

 

AUGUST 23, 1983: Concerning Canadian priest, Father Emilien Tardif: "Have him announce my messages to the whole world. Let Jesus, only Jesus, be at the center of his efforts." 

 

AUGUST 25, 1983: Concerning the arrest and expulsion of Father Tardif, Father Raucourt, and Dr. Phillippe Madre by the Yugoslavian authorities: "Do not worry for them. Everything is in God's plan." 

 

AUGUST 29, 1983: Concerning a group of young people before they leave for their pilgrimage to Siroki Brijeg at a youth festival: "I wish that you pray throughout your trip, and that you glorify God. There, you will be able to meet other young people. Convey the messages which I have given you. Do not hesitate to speak to them about it. Some begin to pray and to fast just as they have been told, but they get tired very quickly, and thus loose the graces which they have acquired." 

 

SEPTEMBER 5, 1983: Concerning Jakov's mother who died: "Your mother is with me in Heaven." 

 

SEPTEMBER 12, 1983: "Pray. When I give you this message, do not be content to just listen to it. Increase your prayer and see how it makes you happy. All graces are at your disposal. All you have to do is to gain them. In order to do that, I tell you - Pray!." 

 

SEPTEMBER 26, 1983: "My Son suffers very much because the world is not converting. May the world be converted and make peace." 

 

OCTOBER 15, 1983: "My Son suffers very much because men do not want to be reconciled. They have not listened to me. Be converted, be reconciled." 

 

OCTOBER 21, 1983: "The important thing is to pray to the Holy Spirit so that He may descend on you. When one has Him, one has everything. People make a mistake when they turn only to the saints to request something."  Advent: "Begin by calling on the Holy Spirit each day. The most important thing is to pray to the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit descends on earth, then everything becomes clear and everything is transformed." 

 

NOVEMBER 26, 1983: In answer to a question, Our Lady said: "Prayer and fasting." 

 

NOVEMBER 30, 1983: To Marija, given for a priest: "You must warn the Bishop very soon, and the Pope, with respect to the urgent and the great importance of the message for all mankind. I have already said many times that the peace of the world is in a state of crisis. Become brothers among yourselves; increase prayer and fasting in order to be saved." 

 

DECEMBER 26, 1983: To Ivan regarding a question asked by Father Laurentin: "Our Lady prays for that. May he who undertakes it, do it in prayer. It is there that he will find his inspiration." 

 

1983: "I know that many will not believe you, and that many who have an impassioned faith will cool off. You remain firm, and motivate people to instant prayer, penance, and conversion. At the end, you will be happier." 

 

To the visionaries: "When you suffer difficulties, and need something, come to me." Regarding cures: "I cannot cure. God alone cures. Pray! I will pray with you Believe firmly. Fast, do penance. I will help you as long as it is in my power to do it. God comes to help everyone. I am not God. I need your sacrifices and your prayers to help me." Regarding faith: "Faith cannot be alive without prayer." Regarding the Mass: "The Mass is the greatest prayer of God. You will never be able to understand its greatness. That is why you must be perfect and humble at Mass, and you should prepare yourselves there." To a priest who asks if it is preferable to pray to Our Lady or to Jesus: "I beseech you, Pray to Jesus! I am His Mother, and I intercede for you with Him. But all prayers go to Jesus. I will help, but everything does not depend solely on me, but also your strength, and the strength of those who pray." Regarding souls in Purgatory: "These persons wait for your prayers and your sacrifices." Other topics: "The most beautiful prayer is the Creed." "The most beautiful thing is to believe." "All prayers are good, if they are said with faith." "My Son wants to win all souls to Him, the Devil strives to obtain something. The Devil makes a great effort to infiltrate among you, at all costs."    

 

 1984       

 

A new development took place in Medjugorje at the beginning of 1984.  Our Lady told Jelena Vasilj that she wanted the parishioners of St.  James Church to come together at the church for one evening a week so  that She could direct them in their spiritual life. The priests chose  Thursday. From March 1, 1984 through January 8, 1987, Our Lady gave  messages to the parish every Thursday. The messages come to the parish  through the six seers and almost entirely through Marija Pavlovic. On  January 8, 1987, Our Lady said that She would give messages monthly,  on the 25th of each month. 

 

MARCH 1, 1984: "Dear children; I have chosen this parish in a special  way and I wish to lead it. I am guarding it in love and I wish  everyone to be mine. Thank you for your response this evening. I wish  that you will always be in greater numbers with Me and my Son. Thank  you for your response to my call." 

 

MARCH 8, 1984: "Thank you for your response to my call. Dear children,  in this parish, start converting yourselves. In that way, all those  who come here will be able to convert. Thank you for your response to  my call." 

 

MARCH 15, 1984: "This evening, dear children, in a special way, I am  grateful to you for being here. Adore continually the Most-Holy  Sacrament. I am always present when the faithful are in adoration.  Special graces are then being received. Thank you for your response to  my call." (This day like every Thursday evening it was noticed that  many men remained in the church for adoration, although they had  worked hard in the fields.) 

 

MARCH 22, 1984: "Dear children; This evening I am asking you in a  special way during this Lent to honor the wounds of my Son, which He  received from the sins of this parish. Unite with my prayers for this  parish so that His suffering may become bearable. Thank you for your  response to my call. Make an effort to come in greater numbers." 

 

MARCH 29, 1984: "Dear children; This evening, in a special way, I am  asking for your perseverance in trials. Ponder how the Almighty is  still suffering because of your sins. So, when sufferings come, offer  them as your sacrifices to God. Thank you for your response to my  call." 

 

APRIL 5, 1984: "Dear children; This evening I am especially asking you  to venerate the Heart of my Son, Jesus. Make atonement for the wounds  inflicted to the Heart of my Son. That heart has been offended with  all sorts of sin. Thank you for coming this evening."

APRIL 26, 1984 Although this was Thursday Our Lady gave no message.  Therefore, Marija surmised that Our Lady meant only to give the  Thursday messages during Lent. However, on April 30, she asked Our  Lady, "Dear Lady, why have you not given me a message for the parish  on Thursday?" Our Lady replied: "Even though I had a special message  for the parish to awaken the faith of every believer, I do not wish to  force anyone to anything he doesn't feel or doesn't want. Only a very  small number have accepted the messages on Thursdays. At the beginning  there were more, but now it seems as if it has become something  ordinary to them. And some have been asking recently for the message  only out of curiosity and not out of faith and devotion to my Son and  me." 

 

MAY 10, 1984: Many believers were struck by the last message of Our  Lady and thought She was not going to give the messages for the parish  anymore, but this evening She said: "I am still speaking to you and I  intend to continue. Just listen to my instructions." 

 

MAY 17, 1984: "Dear children; Today I am very happy because there are  many who desire to devote themselves to me. I thank you! You have not  made a mistake. My Son, Jesus Christ, wishes to bestow on you special  graces through me. My Son is happy because of your dedication. Thank  you who have responded to my call." 

 

MAY 24, 1984: "Dear children; I have told you already that I have  chosen you in a special way, the way you are. I, Mother, love you all.  And in any moment when it is difficult for you, don't be afraid. I  love you even when you are far away from me and my Son. I ask you not  to allow my heart to cry with tears of blood because of the souls who  are being lost in sin. Therefore, dear children, pray, pray, pray!  Thank you for your response to my call." 

 

MAY 31, 1984: "This was the Feast of the Ascension. There were many  people from abroad. Our Lady gave no message. She told Marija she  would give the message on Saturday, to announced to the people on  Sunday. 

 

JUNE 2, 1984: Saturday, Novena of Pentecost: "Dear children; This  evening I wish to say that in the days of this Novena, pray for the  outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon all of your families and your  parish. Pray and you shall not regret it. God shall give you the gifts  and you shall glorify Him and them until the end or your life. Thank  you for your response to my call." 

 

JUNE 9, 1984: Last Thursday, again, Our Lady gave no message. She  promised to give it this evening:"Dear children; Tomorrow night pray  for the Spirit of Truth. Especially you from the parish. The Spirit of  Truth is necessary for you in order to convey the messages just as I  give them to you, not adding anything or taking anything away. Pray  that the Holy Spirit inspires you with the Spirit of Prayer, that you  may pray more. I, as your Mother, say that you pray too little. Thank  you for your response to my call."

These days you have been praying too  little and working too much. Pray, therefore. In prayer you will find  rest. Thank you for responding to my call." 

 

JULY 12, 1984: "Dear children; These days Satan is trying to thwart  all my plans. Pray that his plan may not be fulfilled. I will pray to  my Son, Jesus, that He will give you the grace to experience His  victory in Satan's temptations. Thank you for your response to my  call." 

 

JULY 19, 1984: "Dear children; These days you have been experiencing  how Satan is working. I am always with you and do not be afraid of  temptations. God is always watching over you. I have given myself up  to you and I sympathize with you even in the smallest temptations.  Thank you for your response to my call."

AUGUST 14, 1984: This apparition was unexpected. Ivan was praying in  his house and then started getting ready to go to church for the  evening service, when Our Lady appeared to him and asked him to relate  this message to the people: "I ask the people to pray with me these  days. Pray all the more. Fast strictly on Wednesday and Friday. Say  every day at least one Rosary: Joyful, sorrowful and glorious  mysteries." Our Lady asked the people to accept this message with a  firm will. She asked this in a special way from the parishioners and  believers of the surrounding places.

SEPTEMBER 20, 1984; "Dear children; Today I ask you to start fasting  from your heart. There are many people who fast, but only because  everyone else is fasting.

Dear children, fast and pray  with your heart. Thank you for your response to my call."

OCTOBER 11, 1984: "Dear children; Thank you for offering all your  pains to God. Even now, He is testing you through the fruits which you  are reaping. Realize, dear children, that He loves you and for that  reason He tests you. Always present your burdens to God and do not  worry. " (The testing was a long rain in the middle of the reaping  season which caused great damage to the harvest.)

NOVEMBER 29, 1984: "Dear children; You do not know how to love and you  do not know how to listen with love to the words I am giving you. Be  aware, my beloved, that I am your Mother and that I have come to the  Earth to teach you how to listen out of love, how to pray out of love,  and not out of compulsion of the cross you are carrying. Through the  cross, God is being glorified in every man. Thank you for your  response to my call." 

 

DECEMBER 6, 1984: "Dear children; These days I am calling you to  family prayer. In God's name, many times, I have been giving you  messages; but you do not listen.

Thank you for  your response to my call." 

 

DECEMBER 20, 1984: "Today I am asking you to do something practical  for Jesus Christ. On the Day of Joy I wish that every family of the  parish bring a flower as a sign of abandonment to Jesus.

Thank you for your response to my call."

OCTOBER 17, 1985: "Dear children; Everything has its time. Today, I  invite you to start working on your hearts. All the work in the fields  is finished.

So, dear children,  after prayer before God, display everything that is beautiful so that  you may become beloved by Him. Pray, dear children. Pray and open your  inner self to the Lord so He may make of you a beautiful and  harmonious flower for Heaven. Thank you for your response to my call."

I desire, dear children, that you help so that everything  God has planned in this parish shall be realized. If you do not pray,  you shall not be able to recognize my love and the plans which God has  for this parish and for each individual.

I am calling you, dear children, to convert fully to God. God can  give you everything that you seek from Him. But you seek God only when  sickness, problems, and difficulties come to you and you think that  God is far from you and is not listening and does not hear your  prayers. No, dear children, that is not the truth!. When you are far  from God, you cannot receive graces because you do not seek them with  a firm faith. Day by day, I am praying for you and I want to draw you  ever closer to God; but I cannot if you don't want it. Therefore, dear  children, put your life in God's hands. I bless you all.

Dear children, Satan is very strong and, therefore, I  ask you to dedicate your prayers to me so that those who are under his  influence may be saved. Give witness by your life, sacrifice your  lives for the salvation of the world. I am with you and I am grateful  to you, but in heaven you shall receive the Father's reward which He  has promised you. Therefore, little children, do not be afraid. If you  pray, Satan cannot injure you even a little, because you are God's  children and He is watching over you. Pray, and let the Rosary always  be in your hands as a sign to Satan that you belong to me. Thank you  for having responded to my call." 

 

MARCH 25, 1988:"Dear children, today also I am calling you to a  complete surrender to God. You, dear children, are not conscious of  how God loves you with such a great love. Because of it He permits me  to be with you so I can instruct you and help you to find the way of  peace. That way, however, you cannot discover if you do not pray.  Therefore, dear children, forsake every-thing and consecrate your time  to God and then God will bestow gifts upon you and bless you. Little  children, do not forget that your life is fleeting like the spring  flower which today is wondrously beautiful, but tomorrow has vanished.  Therefore, pray in such a way that your prayer, your surrender to God  may become like a road sign. That way, your witness will not only have  value for yourselves, but for all of eternity. Thank you for  responding to my call."

Come and pray!  Neither look to others nor slander them, but rather let your life be a  testimony on the way of holiness. Churches deserve respect and are set  apart as holy because God, Who became Man, dwells in them day and  night.

I want you to love  all men with my love, both the good and the bad. Only that way will  love conquer the world. Little children, you are mine. I love you and  I want you to surrender to me so I can lead you to God. Pray without  ceasing so that Satan cannot take advantage of you. Pray so that you  realize that you are mine.

I beseech all of you to offer prayers and sacrifices for my  intentions so I can present them to God for what is most necessary.  Forget your desires, dear children, and pray for what God desires and  not for what you desire. Thank you for having responded to my call." 

 

OCTOBER 25, 1991:"PRAY! PRAY! PRAY! (Marija, the visionary who  receives the monthly messages for the world, says Our Lady did not  give her usual 'Thank you for having responded to my call'.) 

 

NOVEMBER 25, 1991:"Dear children, this time, also, I am inviting you  to prayer. Pray that you might be able to comprehend what God desires  to tell you through my presence and through the messages I am giving  you. I desire to draw you ever closer to Jesus and His wounded heart,  that you might be able to comprehend the immeasurable love which gave  itself for each one of you. Therefore, dear children, pray that from  your heart would flow a fountain of love to every person, both to the  one that hates you and to the one that despises you. That way, you  will be able, through Jesus' love, to overcome all the misery in this  world of sorrow, which is without hope for those who do not know  Jesus. I am with you and I love you with the immeasurable love of  Jesus. Thank you for all your sacrifices and prayers. Pray so that I  might be able to help you still more. Your prayers are necessary to  me. Thank you for having responded to my call." 

 

DECEMBER 25, 1991:"Dear children, today, in a special way, I bring the  little Jesus to you that He may bless you with His blessings of peace  and love. Dear children, do not forget that this is a grace which many  people neither under-stand nor accept. Therefore, you who have said  that you are mine and seek my help, give all of yourself. First of  all, give your love and example in your families. You say that  Christmas is a family feast; therefore, dear children, put God in the  first place in your families so that He may give you peace and may  protect you not only from war, but also protect you from every Satanic  attack during peace. When God is with you, you have everything; but  when you do not want Him, then you are miserable and lost and you do  not know on whose side you are. Therefore, dear children, decide for  God and then you will get everything. Thank you for having responded  to my call."             

 

1992

 

.JANUARY 25, 1992: "Dear children, today I am inviting you to a renewal  of prayer in your families so that, in that way, every family will  become a joy to my son Jesus. Therefore, dear children, pray and seek  more time for Jesus and then you will be able to understand and accept  everything, even the most difficult sicknesses and crosses. I am with  you and I desire to take you into my heart and protect you, but you  have not yet decided. There-fore, dear children, I am seeking for you  to pray so that, through prayer, you will allow me to help you. Pray,  my dear little children, so that prayer becomes your daily bread.  Thank you for having responded to my call." 

 

FEBRUARY 25, 1992:"Dear children, today I invite you to draw still  closer to God through prayer. Only in that way will I be able to help  you and to protect you from every attack of Satan. I am with you and I  intercede for you with God, that He protect you; but I need your  prayers and your "Yes". You get lost easily in material and human  things and forget that God is your greatest friend. Therefore, my dear  little children, draw close to God so He may protect you and guard you  from every evil. Thank you for having responded to my call." 

 

MARCH 25, 1992:"Dear children, today, as never before, I invite you to  live my messages and to put them into practice in your life. I have  come to you to help you and, therefore, I invite you to change your  life because you have taken a path of misery, a path of ruin. When I  told you, "Convert, pray, fast and be reconciled", you took these  messages superficially. You started to live them and then you stopped  because it was difficult for you. Know, dear children, when something  is good, you have to persevere in the good and not think, "God does  not see me, He is not listening, He is not helping." And so, you have  gone away from me because of your miserable interests. I wanted to  create of you an Oasis of Peace, Love and Goodness. God wanted you,  with your love and His help, to work miracles and, thus, give example.  Therefore, here is what I say to you, "Satan is playing with you and  with your souls and I cannot help you because you are far from my  heart." Therefore, pray, live my messages and then you will see the  miracles of God's Love in your everyday life. Thank you for having  responded to my call." 

 

APRIL 25, 1992:"Dear children, today also I invite you to prayer. Only  by prayer and fasting can war be stopped. Therefore, my dear little  children, pray; and by your life give witness that you belong to me,  because Satan wishes, in these turbulent days, to seduce as many souls  as possible. Therefore, I invite you to decide for God and He will  protect you and show you what you should do and which path to take. I  invite all of those who have said "yes" to me to renew their  consecration to my Son, Jesus, and to His Heart and to me, so we can  take you more intensely as instruments of Peace in this unpeaceful  world. Medjugorje is a sign to all of you and a call to pray and live  the Days of Grace that God is giving you. Therefore, dear children,  accept the call to prayer with seriousness. I am with you and your  suffering is also mine. Thank you for having responded to my call." 

 

MAY 25, 1992:"Dear children, today also, I invite you to prayer so  that, through prayer, you come yet closer to God. I am with you and  wish to lead you on the path of salvation which Jesus gives. From day  to day, I am closer and closer to you although you are not conscious  of it and do not want to admit that you are connected to me in prayer  only a little bit. When temptations and problems arise, you say, 'O  God, O Mother, where are you?' And I only wait for you to give me your  "yes" so that I pass it on to Jesus and He may bestow you with graces.  Therefore, Once again, accept my call and begin anew to pray until  prayer becomes joy for you, and then you will discover that God is  almighty in your everyday life. I am with you and I wait for you.  thank you for having responded to my call." 

 

JUNE 24, 1992:Message through Ivan's prayer group on the mountain:  "Praise be to Jesus! I am bringing you peace. Bring peace to others.  You are the ones who will bring peace to the world." 

 

JUNE 25, 1992:"Dear children, today I am happy despite there being  some sadness still in my heart for all those who began to take this  path and then abandoned it. My presence here is, therefore, to lead  you on a new path, the path of salvation. Thus, I call you day after  day to conversion; but if you do not pray, you cannot say that you are  converting. I pray for you and intercede before God for Peace: First  for Peace in your hearts, then around you, so that God may be your  Peace. Thank you for having responded to my call." 

 

JUNE 25, 1992:Ivanka's yearly apparition on Our Lady's Anniversary  Feast Day: Our lady pleaded with us to pray and fast. This is the only  weapon against Satan. Satan wants to destroy everything good within  us. Through prayer and fasting, we can conquer evil and resist all  temptations. (Our Lady was dressed in gold). Ivanka raised her hands  during the apparition and later explained that she was touching Our  Lady's hands. 

 

JULY 25, 1992:"Dear children, today, again I invite all of you to  prayer, a joyful prayer, so that in these sad days none of you feels  sadness in prayer, but a joyful meeting with God, his Creator. Pray,  little children, so that you can be closer to me and feel, through  prayer, what I desire from you. I am with you and every day I bless  you with my Motherly Blessing, so that the Lord may bestow you with  the abundance of His Grace for your daily life. Thank God for the gift  of my being with you, because I am telling you: This is a great Grace.  Thank you for having responded to my call." 

 

AUGUST 25, 1992:"Dear children, today I wish to tell you that I love  you. I love you with my Motherly love; and I call upon you to open  yourselves completely to me so that through each of you I may be  enabled to convert and save the world, where there is much sin and  many things that are evil. Therefore, my dear little children, open  yourselves completely to me so that I may be able to lead you more and  more to the marvelous love of God, the Creator, who reveals Himself to  you day by day. I am at your side and I wish to reveal to you and show  you the God that loves you. Thank you for having responded to my  call." 

 

SEPTEMBER 25, 1992:"Dear children, today also I wish to tell you I am  with you in these restless days in which Satan wishes to destroy  everything which I and my Son, Jesus, are building up. In a special  way, he wishes to destroy your souls. He wishes to guide you as far  away as possible from Christian life as well as from the Commandments  to which the Church is calling you so you may live them. Satan wishes  to destroy everything that is Holy in you and around you. Therefore,  little children, Pray! Pray! Pray!, in order to be able to comprehend  all that God is giving you through my coming. Thank you for having  responded to my call." 

 

OCTOBER 25, 1992:"Dear children, I invite you to prayer now when Satan  is strong and wishes to make as many souls as possible his own. Pray,  dear children, and have more trust in me, because I am here in order  to help you and to guide you on a new path towards a new life.  Therefore, dear little children, listen and live what I tell you,  because it is important for you, when I shall not be with you any  longer, that you remember my words and all which I told you. I call  you to begin to change your life from the beginning and that you  decide for conversion, not with words, but with your life. Thank you  for having responded to my call." 

 

NOVEMBER 25, 1992:"Dear children, today, like never before, I invite  you to pray. May your life become prayer in fullness. Without love you  cannot pray. Therefore, I invite you to first love God, the Creator of  your life, and then you shall also discover and love God in all as He  loves you. Dear children, it is a grace that I am with you. Therefore,  accept and live my messages for your good. I love you and, therefore,  I am with you to teach you and to guide you to a new life of  renunciation and conversion. Only in this way shall you discover God  and everything that is far from you now. Therefore, little children,  pray. Thank you for having responded to my call." 

 

DECEMBER 25, 1992:"Dear children, today I wish to place you all under  my mantle to protect you from every Satanic attack. Today is the day  of peace, but throughout the whole world there is much lack of peace.  Therefore, I call you to build up a new world of Peace together with  me, by means of prayer. Without you, I cannot do that and, therefore,  I call all of you with my Motherly love; and God will do the rest.  Therefore open yourselves to God's plans and purposes for you to be  able to cooperate with Him for peace and for good. And, do not forget  that your life does not belong to you, but is a gift with which you  must bring joy to others and lead them to Eternal Life. May the  tenderness of my little Jesus always accompany you. Thank you for  having responded to my call."

Thus only thus, shall  you be able to discern the signs of this time. I am with you and I  guide you into a new time, a time which God gives you as grace, so  that you may get to know Him more. Thank you for having responded to  my call."

I wish that each of you  decides himself for a change of life and that each of you works more  in the church, not through words and thoughts but through example, so  that your life may be a joyful testimony for Jesus. You cannot say  that you are converted, because your life must become a daily  conversion. In order to understand what you have to do, little  children, pray and God will give you what you concretely have to do,  and where you have to change. I am with you and place you all under my  mantle. Thank you for having responded to my call." 

 

MARCH 25, 1993:"Dear children, today, like never before, I call you to  pray for peace: for peace in your hearts, peace in your families and  peace in the whole world, because Satan wants war...wants lack of  peace...wants to destroy all which is good.

APRIL 25, 1993:"Dear children, today I invite you all to awaken your  hearts to love.

Dear children, these times are special and, therefore, I am with  you to love and protect you, to protect your hearts from Satan and to  bring you all closer to the Heart of My Son Jesus. Thank you for  having responded to my call." 

 

IVANKA'S ANNIVERSARY MESSAGE: Our Lady was crying. She showed Ivanka  horrible pictures of the happenings. She asked us all to open out  hearts completely to her Son Jesus so He can lead us in the right  direction. With prayers it can all be averted. She asked us to  constantly pray and then she blessed everyone. Ivanka's apparition  lasted about 10 minutes & she cried during the apparition. 

 

MESSAGE TO IVAN & PRAYER GROUP ON THE MOUNTAIN: It was very difficult  to hear the message as it was translated on the mountain that evening  as so many people were there. The gist of the message is that Satan is  strong, that he is trying to destroy peace and that we must intensify  our prayers. 

 

JULY 25, 1993:"Dear children, today I invite you to pray for peace. At  this time, peace is threatened in a special way; and I am seeking from  you to renew fasting and prayer in your families.

Thank you for having responded to my  call." 

 

OCTOBER 25, 1993:"Dear children, these years I have been calling you  to pray, to live what I am telling you, but you are living my messages  a little. You talk but do not live.

I love you and wish to protect you from every  evil, but you do not desire it. Dear children, I cannot help you if  you do not live God's Commandments, if you do not live the Mass, if  you do not abandon sin. I invite you to become Apostles of Love and  Goodness.

Thank you for your response to my  call." 

 

MARCH 18, 1995: MIRJANA'S BIRTHDAY MESSAGE: Dear children; As a  Mother, for many years already, I am teaching you faith and love for  God. Neither have you shown gratitude to the Dear Father nor have you  given Him glory. You have become empty and your heart has become hard  and without love for the sufferings of your neighbors. I am teaching  you and I am showing you that the Dear Father has loved you, but you  have not loved Him. He sacrificed His Son for your salvation, my  children. For as long as you do not love, you will not come to know  the love of your Father. You will not come to know Him, because God is  love. Love. And have no fear, my children, because in love there is no  fear. If your hearts are open to the Father and if they are full of  love towards Him, why then fear what is to come? Those who do not love  are afraid because they expect punishment and because they know how  empty and hard they are. I am leading you, children, towards love,  toward the Dear Father. I am leading you into Eternal Life. Eternal  Life is my Son. Accept Him and you will have accepted love." 

 

MARCH 25, 1995: "Dear children; Today I invite you to live peace in  your hearts and families.

I am close to you and I invite you all, little children,  into my embrace to help you. But you do not want it; so Satan is  tempting you, and in the smallest things your faith disappears. This  is why, dear children, pray; and through prayer, you will have  blessing and peace. Thank you for your response to my call." 

 

April 25, 1995: "Dear children; Today I call you to love. Little  children, without love you cannot live, neither with God nor with  brother. Therefore, I call all of you to open your hearts to the love  of God that is so great and open to each one of you. God, out of love  for man, has sent me among you to show you the path of salvation, the  path of love. If you do not first love God, then you will neither be  able to love neighbor or the one you hate. Therefore, little children,  pray and through prayer you will discover love. Thank you for having  responded to my call." 

 

May 25, 1995: "Dear children, I invite you little children to help me  through your prayers so that as many hearts as possible come close to  my Immaculate Heart.

Little children, I  wish to make of you a most beautiful bouquet prepared for eternity,  but you do not accept the way of conversion, the way of salvation that  I am offering you through these apparitions.

August 25, 1995: "Dear Children, today I invite you to prayer. Let  prayer be life for you. A family cannot say that it is in peace if it  does not pray.
