Messages And Teachings of Mary at Medjugorje

"THE BLESSED VIRGIN appears in Medjugorje,'' think millions of pilgrims in unison, as they await in obedience, the judgment of the Church. They watch for these messages. Dozens of bulletins and answering services disseminate them throughout the world. Many live them, and thus nourish the happy and fruitful contact, which they have again found with God, through the grace received at Medjugorje. Others are astonished. "These messages are commonplace, repetitive," they say. "Ambiguous, heretical, and even diabolical," say others.
To shed some light on this fervor, and to respond to these objections, it was indispensable for a methodical publishing of all these messages, in a chronological order. We can then analyze the dominant theme, and unravel its meaning.
For the first time, one will find in this book, the whole 700 messages received at Medjugorje, in more than six years of apparitions. The accounts published up until now, contained only up to 400, (if one subtracts the repetitions of the messages). The secrets and the miraculous signs are not overlooked. The objections are the object of supplementary studies: messages concerning the conflict of the bishop with the Franciscans, or ecumenism.
The fundamental message is a realistic reminder of the essential words of the Gospel. Stress is placed on fasting, from the very first days. The message is delivered by way of long, repetitive teachings, as the founding dialogue of every mother. These repetitive teachings, according to psychologists, form the character of a child by age four, through this maternal dialogue. The teachings of Mary, our Mother, in holiness, has provided these adolescents of Medjugorje with something extra; that is, to live these messages, which are constantly referred to the evangelical source. It is that which she has always done, with those whom she invites.

PUBLISHER'S PREFACE

René Laurentin and René Lejeune bring you seven years of messages, allegedly from the Blessed Virgin Mary; over 500 messages from the Madonna to the seers, the parish, the world.
What was said to whom, and on what date, is ultimately not at issue. The importance is the compilation of all these messages and their relationship to the Gospels, and to the Doctrines of the Catholic Church .
The authors have accomplished this. They bring the messages of Mary to us in accordance with accepted Catholic tradition, and in the light of many forgotten (or abandoned) practices of the faith . This book verifies what has been proclaimed in Medjugorje for the past several years: "Our Lady has been running a school for holiness, a holiness workshop."
In the end, we can sum up all these messages into one. It is exactly the same as the first public words of Jesus Christ:
"The reign of God is at hand, reform your lives, and believe in the Gospel." (Mk. 1:15).
Over ten million people have responded to this call in the past seven years. Now, we have the opportunity to put it all together in the context of Catholic teaching, Mary's teaching.
We wish to express our sincere thanks to Dr. Juan Gonzales, Jr., Ph.D., who is Director of Bilingual Education at Texas Southern University, Houston, Texas, for his most arduous effort in translating this work from French to English. Our thanks also to Kim Schrieber, who assisted, and to Beverly, Norma, Bonnie and Juliann for their assistance with the transcript.

FOREWORD
 

What Has Taken Place

On June 24, in the afternoon, Ivanka Ivankovic (age 15), a girl from the hamlet of Bijakovici at Medjugorje, returning from a walk, sees a brilliant silhouette on the hill of Crnica. She murmurs: "It is the Gospa!" (Our Lady).
Mirjana Dragicevic (age 16), her friend, does not look. She is embarrassed because they had been out smoking secretly. She is afraid, and both of them run away.
But in the evening at 6:00, they return with four others. They see her on the hill, from a distance of about 300 meters. That evening, people laugh at them.
The next day, June 25th, both of them are back at the same place, with four others:
Vicka Ivankovic (age 16) and Ivan Dragicevic (age 16), who were also present at the second apparition on June 24th.
Maria Pavlovic (age 16) and Jakov Colo who came for the first time.
These four, along with Ivanka and Mirjana, become the six seers.
The white figure is there, high on the hill. She beckons them to approach; they climb with surprising speed and see the apparition close at hand.
During the first four days (June 25 - 29), they receive, in response to their random questions, the essential words of the message: A return to God, faith, prayer, fasting, peace, reconciliation.
Thousands of people surround them on the 26th of June. The police question them (June 27 and 29), and forbid access to the hill. From June 30 on, the apparitions take place somewhere else, where the police are not able to intervene.
They gradually move to the church, where (since July 2nd, 1981), the pastor decides to say a daily Mass, at the hour of the apparition. Beginning in January - February 1982, the apparition regularly takes place in a room opposite the Sacristy and adjacent to the Sanctuary, which will be called from then on, "chapel of the apparitions."
During the summer of 1981, the signs continue to multiply: cures, luminary phenomena of the sun and on the hills. The movement of prayer and conversions become greater; pilgrimages continue to increase.
The seers progressively receive 10 secrets, destined to be revealed at the end of the apparitions; the third being a visible sign which will be given on the hill.
Christmas 1982, Mirjana receives the 10th and final secret, with the announcement that the apparitions had ended for her. The same for Ivanka on May 6th and 7th, 1985.
Nevertheless, the Virgin promises each one of them a yearly apparition:
For Mirjana, the day of her birthday (March 18), and also when circumstances require it, and which has come to pass since August, 1984 in order to prepare the revelation of the secrets by a priest of her choosing: Father Petar Ljubicic.
For Ivanka, her yearly apparition happens on the anniversary day of the first apparitions on the hill (June 25th).
The Bishop of the place, Msgr. P. Zanic, at first favorable (July 1981), gradually took a position against the apparitions. The main reason for his change of mind was the complex interferences of an old conflict in the diocese with the Franciscans. He announced a negative judgment by May 1986. But Rome refused this decision and transferred the responsibility of judgment to the Yugoslavian Episcopal Conference. Cardinal Kuharic established a new commission, which began its work in March 1987. At all levels, one distinguishes more and more between the facts to be judged (among which some contest the supernatural character) and the fruits, recognized by everyone, and understood by Bishop Zanic, as well.
On March 25, 1985, Msgr. Zanic forbade the ecstasies of the seers to take place in the church. Consequently they were transferred to the rectory. They have taken place there every day, or wherever each seer is individually. For reasons of health, Vicka has them ordinarily at her home at Bijakovici, the village of the seers.
At the time of this writing, no one knows when the apparitions will end . For more details and information see the list of material available, shown at the end of this text.
 
 

PART III

Chronology Of

The Messages


Acknowledgments

We would like to thank all of those who have preceded us in this study of the messages of Medjugorje, each according to his own grace, particularly:

Father Y. M. Blais, author of the first comprehensive work on the subject: "500 Messages to Live" (a very eloquent title), Montreal, 1986. He gathered nearly 350 messages, of which some are repeated several times because they relate to different themes, which justifies the number as announced in the title.

Fr. Robert Faricy, Professor of Spirituality at the Gregorian University in Rome, who examined closely, through interviews, the testimony of the seers and the spiritual dynamism of Medjugorje.

The titles of his works: "Medjugorje, Mary Queen of Peace , " (Tequi, 1984, 108 pgs.) "At the Heart of Medjugorje-Mary Speaks to the World," (Fayard, 1986, 198 pgs.)

Also the irreplaceable spiritual commentaries of Fathers Tomislav Vlasic and Slavko Barbaric.

This daily pastoral from Frs. Vlasic and Barbaric has been published in four volumes, edited by the "Friends of Medjugorje" via Nirone 9, 20123 Milano, Italy.

Our book has been assigned an appropriate and complementary task: to assemble into a "corpus," according to chronological order, all the available messages, (more than 500), to categorize them theologically and pastorally; to dispel apparently annoying objections, and thus to clarify their sense or meaning through the teaching of Our Lady.

Chronology of the Messages

It was necessary to collect all the messages known at Medjugorje, according to the only possible objective order: Chronology. That puts a limitation on this file because the apparitions are not yet finished.

Another reason is because these texts have been transmitted in very different ways: through oral or written translation, immediate or delayed, direct or indirect, date or non-dated. We have presented, at the end of this file, the texts which apparently were not dated.

We will keep these characteristics in mind as well as the functional diversity of these messages. The six visionaries say they understand them as a normal conversation. Jelena and Marijana receive "internal locutions" through their heart.

All this seemed discouraging and dissuasive. But since so many Christians follow these messages, "Live them" (according to the beautiful formula of Father Blais), in a fruitful manner, and that so many leaflets, bulletins, books and telephone calls transmit them from day to day, it became necessary to collect these messages attributed to Our Lady. She does not impose them, but she proposes them, to the entire freedom of each person. Those who have found a home there-who live them-will benefit from them. The continuation, and the conclusion of this message, which is still unfinished, will come in its own time.

In order to show the non-official character of the apparitions, (since the Commission of Inquiry of the Bishops' Conference has not completed its work), and in order not to anticipate the conclusion of these tasks which are being accomplished in discretion, Cardinal Kuharic has asked the pastor of Medjugorje on September 17th, 1987, that the messages not be proclaimed from the altar, and that they not have official dissemination. Private dissemination of these messages, which everyone agrees to acknowledge to be orthodox and fruitful, remains authorized. The publication of this corpus maintains this private character.

It brings a service to those whom these apparitions have converted, or involved; and to the studies of the Commission, a publication which is better organized, better dated, more exact, and thus an historical and theological clarification, useful to dispel the ambiguities of the transmission.

It is in this spirit that we dedicate this file to the Commission, and to its president, who has indeed offered thanks for my private work as an expert to the service of the common ecclesiastical research for truth.

One will find the abbreviations of the references at the end of the volume.
 
 

Publisher's Note

In Mary's appearances to the seers prior to March, 1984, the beginning salutation was usually: Praise be Jesus. In leaving the children, the ending words were usually: Go in the Peace of God.
Beginning in March, 1984, the messages were usually given for the parish, (and the world), and the opening salutation from the Madonna was usually: Dear Children! In leaving, Mary almost always thanked those involved with: Thank you for having responded to my call.
These salutations are normally omitted in this text, and in the index of messages at the end of the book, but it should be noted that they constitute part of the messages, even though it is not necessary to print them for every message stated.
It should also be noted, that in some cases these messages have been translated among three or four different languages. As a result, certain words may show slight variation, or phrases could change within the sentence structure.
 
 

CHAPTER 1

The First Apparitions

MARY ON THE HILL

(June 24-29, 1981)

1981



WEDNESDAY, JUNE 24TH 1981
A silent and distant apparition of the white silhouette on the hill of Crnica; the first time in the afternoon, the second time, towards 6:00 p.m.
 

THURSDAY, JUNE 25TH 1981

The date of the first apparition for the group of six seers, who see the Gospa nearby on the hill:
Praised be Jesus! (DV.1).
Ivanka:"Where is my mother?" (Her mother had died two months previously.)
She is happy. She is with me. (A variation on this wording is) She is your angel in heaven. (Lj.15).
The seers: "Will you return tomorrow?"
The apparition acquiesces with a nod of the head.
Mirjana:"No one will believe us. They will say that we are crazy. Give us a sign!"
The apparition responds only with a smile. Mirjana believed she had received a sign. Her watch had changed time during the apparition. (Bu 24; D4; K21).
Goodbye, my angels. (BU.24).
Go in the peace of God. (DV.1).
 

FRIDAY, JUNE 26TH 1981

In the presence of a crowd of 2,000 to 3,000 people, drawn there by the luminary signs coming from the hill of the apparitions, Vicka sprinkles the apparition with holy water and says:
"If you are the Gospa, stay with us, if not, go away."
The apparition only smiles.
Ivanka:"Why have you come here? What do you desire? I have come because there are many true believers here. I wish to be with you to convert and to reconcile the whole world.
(According to others: To convert all of you.) (K.26).
Ivanka:"Did my mother say anything?"
Obey your grandmother and help her because she is old. (K.26; Lj.16; BU.28).
Mirjana: "How is my grandfather?" (He had recently died.) He is well. (K.26).
The seers on a request from the crowd:
"Give us a sign which will prove your presence."
Blessed are those who have not seen and who believe. (L.2,24).
Mirjana:"Who are you?"
I am the Most Blessed Virgin Mary. (L.1, 37).
"Why are you appearing to us? We are not better than others."
I do not necessarily choose the best.
"Will you come back?"
Yes, to the same place as yesterday. (L.2, 25).
On returning to the village after the apparition, Maria sees the Virgin again, in tears, near a cross with rainbow colors:
Peace, Peace, Peace! Be reconciled! Only Peace. (D.7). Make your peace with God and among yourselves. For that, it is necessary to believe, to pray, to fast, and to go to confession. (F.2, 126; D.5).
 

SATURDAY, JUNE 27TH 1981

Praised be Jesus!
Jakov:"What do you expect of our Franciscans?"
Have them persevere in the faith and protect the faith of others. (DV.1).
Jakov and Mirjana:"Leave us a sign because the people treat us as liars."
My angels, do not be afraid of injustice. It has always existed. (L.2,33).
The seers: "How must we pray?"
Continue to recite seven Our Father's and seven Hail Mary's and Glory Be's, but also add the Creed. (Bl.12).
Goodbye, my angels. Go in the peace of God.
And to Ivan, alone, aside:
Be in peace and take courage. ("And what a beautiful smile when she left me," noted Ivan.) (L.2,33).
 

SUNDAY, JUNE 28TH 1981

The seers: "What do you wish?"
That people believe and persevere in the faith.
Vicka:"What do you expect from the priests?" That they remain strong in the faith and that they help you.
"Why don't you appear to everyone in church?"
Blessed are they who believe without having seen.
"Will you come back?"
Yes, to the same place.
"Do you prefer prayer or singing?"
Both, pray and sing.
Vicka:"What do you wish from the crowd which has gathered here?"
This question remained without any response except for a glance of love, with a smile, said the seers.
Here the Virgin disappeared. The visionaries prayed so that she might return because she had not said, Goodbye, my angels.
During their song, "You Are All Beautiful," she reappears. Vicka: "Dear Gospa, what do you expect of this people?" She repeated the question three times and finally was given this answer:
That those who do not see believe as those who see.
Vicka:"Will you leave us a sign so that people believe that we are not liars nor comedians?"
No other response, only a smile.
Go in the peace of God, she said, as she disappeared.
(The responses for the 28th of June were taken om the tape recorder of Grgo Kozina.) (L.2,37-38).
 

MONDAY, JUNE 29TH 1981

The seers: "Dear Gospa, are you happy to see so many people here today?"
More than happy ("She smiles," writes Vicka).
"How long will you stay with us?"
As long as you will want me to, my angels.
"What do you expect of the people who have come in spite of the brambles and the heat?"
There is only one God, one faith. Let the people believe firmly and do not fear anything.
"What do you expect of us?"
That you have a solid faith and that you maintain confidence.
"Will we know how to endure persecutions which will come to us because of you?" 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.
Here Vicka writes a question from Dr. Darinka Glamuzina: "May I touch Our Lady?" She gives this response:
There have always been doubting Thomases, but she can approach.
Vicka shows her where to stretch out her hand. Darinka tries to touch her. The Gospa disappears, then reappears in her light. (L2,33).
The parents of a three-year-old child, Daniel Setka, who had suffered from septicemia since the fourth day of his birth, asked the seers to intercede for the handicapped child. "Dear Gospa, is little Daniel going to speak some day? Cure him so that they all will believe us. These people love you very much, dear Gospa. Perform a miracle ... It is watching... it ... Dear Gospa, say something."
They repeated this petition and conveyed the response:
Have them believe strongly in his cure. Go in the peace of God. (L.2, 42-43).
 
 

CHAPTER 2

The Hidden Phase

(June 30, 1981 To December 31, 1981)


During this period, the Gospa appeared where the seers (who were being tracked down), discreetly awaited her, away from the patrols of the police.
 

TUESDAY, JUNE 30TH 1981

Apparition at Cerno. (L.2,40-41).
Mirjana: 'Are you angry that we were not on the hill?"
That doesn't matter.
"Would you be angry if we would not return any longer to the hill, but we would wait in the church?"
Always at the same time.
Go in the peace of God. (L.2,50).
On that day, Mirjana thought that she understood that the Gospa would return for three more days, until Friday. But it was only her interpretation.
 

WEDNESDAY, JULY 1ST 1981

Apparition in the van (L.2,56: no words were reported).
 

THURSDAY, JULY 2ND 1981

Jakov: "Dear Gospa, leave us a sign."
The Virgin seemed to acquiesce with a nod:
Goodbye, my dear angels. (L.2,60).
The apparitions from the 3rd to the 20th of July, 1981, have left few traces, almost uniquely the diary of Vicka (July 21-29, Aug. 22-Sept. 6, Oct. 10-Dec. 24), and the parish Chronicle (which begins Aug. 10, 1981).
 

FRIDAY, JULY 3RD 1981

Apparition at the rectory. No message was preserved.
 

SATURDAY, JULY 4TH 1981

The seers believe the apparitions had ended, but the Gospa appeared to each one of them separately, where he or she was. No message was preserved.
 

TUESDAY, JULY 21ST 1981
(27th apparition, according to Vicka's diary).

Just like every day, we spoke with the Gospa. At 6:30 when she arrived, she greeted us:
Praised be Jesus!
Then we asked her if she would give us a sign. She said yes. Then we asked her how longer still would she come to visit us. The Blessed Virgin responded:
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.
Then we questioned her on the subject of the sick. For some, the Gospa said that they would be cured only if their faith was strong; and for others, no. Then she prepared to depart. Upon leaving, she said to us:
Go in the peace of God. (DV.1,2).
 

WEDNESDAY, JULY 22ND 1981:
(28th apparition, 6:30, according to Vicka's diary). (DV.1,2).

On arriving she said:
Praise be Jesus Christ.
All of us questioned her on the subject of some sick people who had been recommended to us. Then we prayed with the Blessed Virgin. She only said the Our Father and Glory Be, and during the time that we said the Hail Mary, she was silent. The Gospa told us that:
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.
Then she said:
Go in the peace of God.
She began to depart and, while she was departing, a cross appeared in the sky.
 

THURSDAY, JULY 23RD 1981
(29th apparition, according to Vicka's diary.) (DV.1,2).

Vicka only mentions the greeting from Our Lady:
Praised be Jesus Christ.
 

FRIDAY, JULY 24TH 1981
(3Oth apparition, 6:30, according to Vicka's diary). (DV.1,2).

Today, also, we went to the place of the apparitions about 6:20, and while praying and singing, we waited for the Blessed Virgin. At exactly 6:30 we saw the light which slowly approached. Then we saw the Blessed Virgin and heard her customary greeting.
To our questions, relative to the majority of the sick, the Gospa answered quickly:
Without faith, nothing is possible. All those who will believe firmly will be cured.
 

SATURDAY, JULY 25TH 1981
(31st apparition, according to Vicka's diary). (DV.1,2).

After the usual questions on the subject of the ill, the Gospa responded:
God, help us all!
 

MONDAY, JULY 27TH 1981
(33rd apparition, at 6:30, according to Vicka's diary). (DV.1,3).

Only four of us came because they put pressure on Ivica, Ivanka and Mirjana to go to Sarajevo. At 6:30 exactly, the Gospa appeared.
Vicka asked her about certain sick people, took some objects which had been given to her by some people, and approached Our Lady so that she could bless them. The Gospa made the Sign of the Cross and said:
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Then we questioned her on the subject of the sign, and the Gospa answered:
Await, it will not be for long. If I will leave you a sign, I will still appear to you.
Vicka asked if we would be able to see her again one more time this evening on the hill. The Gospa agreed and said:
I will come at 11:15 p. m. Go in the peace of God.
Saying this, she began to disappear and we saw in the heavens the heart and the cross. Mary said:
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.
Jesus had long hair, brown eyes, and a beard. We only saw His head. (We transpose this phrase which came before the word of Mary.) She said that we prayed and sang beautifully:
It is beautiful to listen to you. Continue in this manner.
In conclusion she said:
Don't be afraid for Jozo. (The pastor who had been threatened by the police).
 

WEDNESDAY, JULY 29TH 1981
(35th apparition, 6:30, according to Vicka's diary). (DV.1,3).

Today we waited for the Blessed Virgin in Vicka's room. At exactly 6:30, the Gospa came and greeted us.
Praised be Jesus!
Jakov was the first to question her on the subject of a person who was ill. The Blessed Virgin said:
She will be cured. She must believe firmly.
Vicka asked why she had not come yesterday. The Blessed Mother said something, smiled, but no one heard it. Then Maria and Jakov asked her about certain sick people. We then took some articles and all four approached the Gospa so that she would bless them. When we were doing this, our hands became very cold.
Jakov asked if we could embrace her. The Blessed Virgin said that we should approach and embrace her. Then we asked her to leave us the sign. She said:
Yes.
Then:
Go in the peace of God.
And she began to disappear. On the ceiling the Cross and the Heart were visible.
The cross, the heart and the sun are mentioned by Vicka in her diary, in later apparitions. (Aug. 22, 27, 30 and 31, Sept. I and Nov. 22, 1981, as well as on Feb. 6 and Mar. 12, 1982).
In church we saw the Blessed Virgin a second time toward eight o'clock in the choir loft. While we were praying, the Blessed Virgin prayed with us. (DV.1, 3).
 

THURSDAY, JULY 30TH 1981

We did not go to the hill. (DV.1, 4). (Vicka's diary contains no more observations until August 22nd.)
 

JULY 1981

Carry out well your responsibilities and what the Church asks you to do. (BL.307).
 

SUNDAY, AUGUST 2ND 1981

Maria sees the Virgin in her room:
All of you together go to the meadow at Gumno. A great battle is about to take place. A battle between my Son and Satan. Human souls are at stake.
The seers, accompanied by some 40 people, went to the praire of Gumno, 200 meters from Vicka's house. Everyone here may touch me. (D). After many people had touched her, a black stain appeared on the dress of the Virgin. Maria cried. Marinko, invited the people who were present to go to Confession.
 

THE BEGINNING OF AUGUST 1981

"What do you wish that we do later?"
I would like for you to become priests and religious, but only if you, yourselves, would want it. It is up to you to decide. (L.2, 83).

I am the Queen of Peace. (L.1, 75).

MONDAY, AUGUST 17TH 1981

Do not be afraid. I wish that you would be filled with joy and that the joy could be seen on your faces. I will protect Father Jozo. (The latter was the pastor of the parish at Medjugorje who was imprisoned). (BL.338).
 

SATURDAY, AUGUST 22ND 1981

Father Jozo has nothing to fear. All that will pass. (DV.1, 3).
 

SUNDAY, AUGUST 23RD 1981

Praised be Jesus! I have been with Ivica until now.(This diminutive refers sometimes to Ivan, sometimes to Ivanka. Here, the context does not permit one to be more specific). Pray, my angels, for this people.
My children, I give you strength. I will give you some of it always.
"When you need me, call me. (DV.1, 4).
 

MONDAY, AUGUST 24TH 1981

In her diary, for the date of August 25th, Vicka writes: "Yesterday, Monday the 24th at 10:45, Mirjana and I were at Ivan's house. We heard an uproar and we went out running. Outside, everybody was looking at the cross on Krizevac. At the spot of the cross, Mirjana, Jakov, Ivan and I saw the Blessed Virgin, and the people saw something like her statue which began then to disappear, and the cross appeared again.
Over the entire sky one saw, written in letters of gold, MIR: "PEACE."
Vicka's diary then reports the apparition on August 25th. (DV. 1, 4).
A little after the Virgin prayed for peace, a large inscription appeared on top of Krizevac. The word "Peace" (MIR in Croatian). The inscription was seen by the pastor and many persons of the village. There is written testimony by those who saw the inscription. The seers affirmed that the Blessed Virgin Mary promised that there would still be many other signs as forerunners at Medjugorje, and in other parts of the world, before the great sign. (K58, which observes the event one evening in July 1981).
 

TUESDAY, AUGUST 25TH 1981

Some persons who were present said ... to request of the Blessed Virgin the permission to touch her. The Gospa said:
It is not necessary to touch me. Many are those who do not feel anything when they touch me. (DV.1, 4).
She also said that, among those present, there was a spy (no other clarification was given on this point).
On the matter of the sign, you do not have to become impatient for the day will come. (DV.1, 4).
 

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 26TH 1981

Today, for the first time, we waited for the Blessed Virgin at the home of Zdenka Ivankovic. There were five of us, because Ivanka had not yet returned. The Blessed Virgin appeared and said:
Praised be Jesus.
She said that tomorrow the people did not have to come, and thus we would be by ourselves. Then also:
Do not give advice to anyone. I know what you feel and that will pass, also. (DV.1,4).
 

THURSDAY, AUGUST 27TH 1981

Maria and I came to Jakov's house today about six o'clock. We helped Jakov's mother to prepare supper. At six o'clock the Blessed Virgin came toward us. I was outside when the Blessed Virgin Mary came. She said that they should not have to make one suffer so.
We asked her with respect to the sign, and she said:
Very soon, I promise you.
We commended certain sick people to the Holy Virgin. She stayed with us for 15 minutes. Then we left for the home of Marinko Ivankovic in order to wait for the Blessed Virgin there. She came at 6:30. She told Ivan (Dragicevic):
Be strong and courageous.
She left, and the cross, the heart and the sun appeared. (DV. 1, 5).
 

FRIDAY, AUGUST 28TH 1981

At the hour of the apparitions, the seers wait in the room of Father Jozo, who is in prison. The Virgin does not appear. It is the second time that this has happened. They go to church and pray. She appears to them:
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. (DV.1, 5).
Today, Ivan entered the seminary of Visoko:
You are very tired. Rest, so that you can find strength. Go in the peace of God. Goodbye. (Adieu: Ivan's Journal).
 

SATURDAY, AUGUST 29TH 1981

Jakov: "Are you also appearing to Ivan in the seminary?"
Yes, just like to you.
"How is Ivan Ivankovic, son of Pero, and cousin of Vicka, one of the four men at Bijakovici who bear this name. He had been arrested by the police August 12th, on the hill of the apparitions, and imprisoned.)
He is well. He is enduring everything. All that will pass. Father Jozo sends you greetings. (DV.1).
"What is the news from our village?"
My angels, you are doing your penance well.
"Will you help us in our studies?"
God's help manifests itself everywhere.
Go in the peace of God with the blessing of Jesus and mine. Goodbye. (Ivan's Journal: C76).
Ivanka: "Will you leave us a sign soon?"
Again, a little patience. (DV.1).
 

SUNDAY, AUGUST 30TH 1981

At 6:20, we began to pray at the home of Marinko Ivankovic. The Virgin arrived and said:
Praised be Jesus!
Vicka asked the Virgin:
"People say that since they locked up Father Jozo in his cell, the doors unlocked by themselves. Is that true?"
It is true, but no one believes it.
Ivanka: "How is Mirjana? What are her feelings?"
Mirjana is sad because she is all alone. I will show her to you.
Suddenly, we saw Mirjana's face. She was crying.
"Dear Gospa, there are some young people who betray our faith."
Yes, there are many.
She mentions some names.
Vickaasks the Virgin concerning a woman who wanted to leave her husband because he was making her suffer. Let her remain close to him and accept her suffering. Jesus, Himself, also suffered.
On the matter of 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.
Jakovasks her about the sign:
Again, a little patience. (DV.1, 6).
Ivan, who had been several days without an apparition:
"How will I do in this seminary?"
Be without fear. I am close to you everywhere and at all times. (L.2, 84).
Ivan's diary: 'Are the people pious in our village?"
Your village has become the most fervent parish in Hercegovina. A large number of people distinguish themselves through their piety and their faith. (c.77).
 

END OF AUGUST 1981:

"Which is the best fasting?"
A fasting on bread and water
I am the Queen of Peace. (L.1, 98 and 187; MM6).
 

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1ST 1981
"Will there be a Mass on Mt. Krizevac?"
Yes, my angels.
Jakov:'Are the police setting up a trap around the church'?"
There's nothing at all. Have the people pray and remain in church as long as possible.
Go in the peace of God.
The cross, the heart, and the sun appeared. (DV.1, 6).
Ivan's diary: "I prayed with her so that Jesus might help me in my vocation. Then we recited the rosary. The Gospa smiled with kindness."
Do not be afraid. I am close to you and I watch over you. (c.77).
 

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2ND 1981
Concerning the young man who hanged himself:
Vicka: "Why did he do that?"
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. (DV.1, 6).
Ivan's diary: "How will things go for Anton, Dario, Miljenko, my friends in the seminary, and for me?"
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. (C.78).
 

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 3RD 1981

Jakov: "When will the sign which was announced come?"
Again, a little patience. (DV.1, 6).
 

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4TH 1981

Ivankaand Maria: "We will not be at home except on Saturdays and Sundays. The other days we will be far away in school. What must we do?"
It is enough for you to pray. Come here Saturdays and Sundays. I will appear to all of you. (DV.1, 6).
To Ivan in the seminary:
The sign will be given at the end of the apparitions.
Ivan:"When will that be?"
You are impatient, my angel. Go in the peace of God. (L.2, 84).
 

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5TH 1981

Ivan's diary: "I was praying in the chapel. The Gospa came when I was reciting the Our Father."
Praise be Jesus and Mary.
(The Virgin was using a salutation of pious people in Croatia, probably with the desire to revive it.)
Go in the peace of God, my angel. May the blessing of God accompany you. Amen. Goodbye. (C.79).
 

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 6TH 1981

Ivan's diary: "I was praying in the chapel. Suddenly there was a great light."
Pray especially on Sunday, so that the great sign, the gift of God may come. Pray with fervor and a constancy so that God may have mercy on His great children.
Go in peace, my angel. May the blessing of God accompany you. Amen. Goodbye. (C.79).
 

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 7TH 1981

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8TH 1981 (FEAST OF THE NATIVITY OF THE VIRGIN)

I ask you only to pray with fervor. Prayer must become a part of your daily life, to permit the true faith to take roots. (C.79).
Jakov wishes the Blessed Virgin a happy birthday.
She answers:
It is for me a beautiful day. With respect to you, persevere in the faith and in prayer. (CP.7).
Do not be afraid. Remain in joy. It is my desire. Let joy appear on your faces. I will continue to protect Father Jozo. (CP.8).

Ivan's diary: "We prayed a lot. Prayers filled with joy and love, prayers of the heart." Then she says:
Go in the peace of God, my angel. Amen. Goodbye. (C.80).
 

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 13TH 1981

Ivan's diary: "The students in the seminary prayed the rosary after they had gone to Confession." The Virgin came near the image of Jesus and said:
There is your Father, my angel.
Go in the peace of God, my angels. (C.80).
Christ is our Brother, but in a sense, our Father: Formula used by some of the most renown mystics.
In an apparition to Gemma Galgani, Jesus said, I am your Father. Your Mother, here she is. And He pointed out to her the Blessed Virgin. (J.F. Villepelée, "Vie de G. Galgani.'').
 

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14TH 1981

To Vicka: Stay here so that Jakov will not be alone. Persevere (both of you) with patience. You will be rewarded. She also told her that she had scolded Mirjana and Ivanka for a behavior which was not detailed. (CP.10).
 

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15TH 1981

If this people is not converted very soon, bad things will happen to them. (CP.10).
 

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16TH 1981

Do not relax in your prayers. I ask both of you to fast for a week on bread and water. (Bl. 190).
 

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30TH 1981

Don't ask useless questions dictated by curiosity. The most important thing is to pray, my angels. (CP.12)
 

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1ST 1981

Written questions asked of the seers: "Are all religions good?"
All religions are similar before God. God rules over them just like a sovereign over his kingdom. In the world, all religions are not the same because people have not complied with the commandments of God. They reject and disparage them. (On this ambiguous response see annex 2.)
"Are all churches the same?"
In some, one prays to God more. In others, less. That depends on the priests who motivate others to pray. That also depends on the power which they have.
"Why are there so many apparitions which repeat themselves so many times? Why does the Blessed Virgin appear to children who do not follow the way of God?"
I appear to you often and in every place. To others, I appear from time to time and briefly. They do not follow yet, completely the way of God. 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. (CP.14).
 

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6TH 1981

The evening Mass must definitely be kept. 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. (CP.16).
 

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7TH 1981

The seers: "Is there, outside of Jesus, other intermediaries between God and man, and what is their role?"
There is only one mediator between God and man, and it is Jesus Christ.
On the request from Father Tomislav:
"Should we found here a community just 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. (CP.16).
 

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8TH 1981

Maria humbly reports that the Gospa had scolded her for having stayed (during Mass) with her school mates of religious instruction, who asked her about the apparitions:
You would have done better to attend Mass rather than to satisfy human curiosity. (CP.17).
 

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10TH 1981

It is up to you to pray and to persevere. I have made promises to you; also be without anxiety. (DV.2).
Faith will not know how to be alive without prayer. (B1.137).
Pray more. (CP.17).
 

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 11TH 1981

The Virgin answers, as usual, questions on the subject of people who are sick or who have disappeared:
Tomo Lovic (an old man) is dead. (CP.17).
 

MONDAY, OCTOBER 12TH 1981

"Where are the Kingdom of God and of paradise?"
In Heaven.
"Are you the Mother of God?"
I am the Mother of God and the Queen of Peace.
"Did you go to Heaven before or after death?"
I went to Heaven before death.
"When will you leave us the sign?"
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. (CP. 18: DV.2, 10).
 

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17TH 1981

Questioned on the subject of the visible sign, Our Lady responds:
It is mine to realize the promise. With respect to the faithful, have them pray and believe firmly.
 

MONDAY, OCTOBER 19TH 1981

Pray for Fr. Jozo and fast tomorrow on bread and water. Then you will fast for a whole week on bread and water. Pray, my angels. Now I will show you Fr. Jozo. (CP 20).
The seers have a vision of Fr. Jozo in prison. He tells them not to be afraid for him, that everything was well.
With respect to Marinko who protected the visionaries:
There are a few similar faithful. He is made a sufficient number of sacrifices for Jozo. He underwent many torments and sufferings. Continue, and do not let anyone take the faith away from you.
 

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 20TH 1981

Vicka: "Dear Gospa, have mercy on Fr. Jozo tomorrow during the trial. Paralyze someone; strike someone on the head. I know it is a sin to speak so, but what can we do?"
The Gospa smiles at my words, then she sings:
"Jesus Christ, in Your Name. When we finished the song, (with the Gospa) she tells us:"
Go in the peace of God.
Then she leaves. (DV.2, 13; CP. 20).
 

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 21ST 1981

With respect to Fr. Jozo who is awaiting sentence from the court:
Vicka: "Dear Gospa, I know that you do not have the spirit of vengeance, but try nevertheless to bring certain people to reason, so that they might judge impartially."
Jozo looks well and he greets you warmly. Do not fear for Jozo. He is a saint, I have already told you. (CP. 21).
"Will Jozo be condemned?"
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. (DV. 2, 14).
 

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22ND 1981

Jozo has been sentenced. Let us go to church to pray.
"We were sad because of Jozo."
You should rejoice! (DV. 2, 14; CP 21).
"Is the whiteness of the cross a supernatural phenomenon?"
Yes, I confirm it. (DV. 2, 15; CP. 21).
After many people saw the cross on Mt. Krizevac transform itself into a light, then into a silhouette of the Virgin:
All of these signs are designed to strengthen your faith until I leave you the visible and permanent sign. (F2, 155).
 

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25TH 1981

Three girls from Citluk, returning home after Mass, suddenly see a great light from which fifteen silhouettes, dressed in Franciscan frock, are apparent. They go down on their knees, pray and cry. The Blessed Virgin was questioned on this subject:
It was a supernatural phenomenon. I was among the saints. (CP. 23).
 

MONDAY, OCTOBER 26TH 1981

The Blessed Virgin appeared smiling:
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. (DV. 2, 16: CP. 23-24).
 

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 28TH 1981

"Were you there at Krizevac yesterday for half an hour?"
Yes, didn't you see me? (DV. 1, 17; CP. 251).
Several hundred people saw, at the site of the first apparition,
a fire which burned without burning up anything. In the evening, the Virgin tells the seers:
The fire seen by the faithful was of a supernatural character. It is one of the signs; a forerunner of the great sign. (CP. 25).
 

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29TH 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! (DV. 2, 17).
 

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30TH 1981

Praise be Jesus!
Jakov and Vicka: "What was there in the sealed envelope which they showed us at city hall?" (Someone had told them that he would believe in the apparitions, if they would read what was in the sealed envelope.)
Do not respond 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. (CP 25-26; DV. 2, 18).
"Should one celebrate Christmas Mass in the evening or at Midnight?"
Have them celebrate it at midnight. (CP. 25).
To the seers:
Pray! Go in the peace of God! (DV2, 17).
To Ivanka:
Pray more. The others are praying and suffering more than you.
To the seers:
Tell the young people not to allow themselves to be distracted from the true way. Let them remain faithful to their religion. (CP 26).
 

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31ST 1981-Two versions:

1. Vicka's diary: (D. 1, 17).
Mirjana arrives from Sarajevo, where she is studying at a professional school, and where she has had daily apparitions.
Vicka reports: "The Gospa advises as an attentive mother would. She tells Mirjana twice that she must distrust, which persons to avoid, how to conduct herself with those who reproach her and insult God."
"She also tells her to break a relationship with a girl who wanted to get her into drugs ( ... ), and; not to quarrel with anyone, to answer a point when it is useful, or to remain silent and go on her way when that is better. She tells her also that Father Jozo will not spend more than four years in prison. She was happy because all five of us were together. On the question of Danny Ljolje, the Gospa said:"
There is a lot of deception and erroneous information.
"Then she shows us a part of paradise; indescribable beauty; many people, particularly children. We were afraid. The Blessed Virgin tells us not to be afraid."
All those who are faithful to God will have that. (DV. 2, 17).

2. Parish Chronicle:
T. Vlasic summarizes the advice given to Mirjana in this manner:
"The Blessed Virgin advises her, as an attentive and good mother. She also shows her what she should pay attention to, which persons to avoid, how to handle those who provoke and offend God. The Blessed Virgin advised her to sever all types of relationships with a young girl who intended to get her into drugs. Then she put her on guard against other dangers. She told her not to argue with people and to answer calmly, and when she sees that serves no purpose, to keep quiet and continue on her way."
"Often she would motivate her to prayer and to perseverance."
"She also tells her that Father Jozo would not have more than four years in prison. The Blessed Mother shows a great joy, because the five seers were together again. To a question which was brought up again concerning Danny Ljolje, the Blessed Virgin said:"
There is enough trickery and false information.
"She asks the children to separate from such persons. And then the Gospa shows the children a part of paradise, indescribable beauty, many people, especially children. The seers were surprised and shocked. The Gospa told them not to fear:"
It will be like this for all those who are faithful to God.
"Ivanka saw her mother in paradise as well as another person who was of her acquaintance." (CP. 26-27).
 

OCTOBER 1981

Regarding the conflict between the Franciscans and the Bishop of Mostar in Hercegovina:
It is going to find a solution. We must have patience and
pray.
In response to a question posed by the seers: "What will become of Poland?"
There will be great conflicts but in the end, the just will take over.
With respect to Russia:
It is the people where God will be most glorified. The West has made civilization progress, but without God, as if they were their own creators. (K. 60).

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 8TH 1981
(Feast of the Immaculate Conception).

Responding to a question from the seers with respect to their future:
I would like for all of you to become priests and religious, but only if you desire it. You are free. It is up to you to choose. (L1, 136).
If you are experiencing difficulties or if you need something, come to me. (K.72).
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. (T. 55).
On this day of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, the Gospa was serious; she knelt down with arms extended while praying:
My beloved Son, I beseech you to be willing to forgive the world its great sin through which it offends you. (C 53).

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 9TH 1981

"While we were saying our prayers, the Blessed Virgin intervened: "
Oh, My Son Jesus, forgive these sins, there are so many of them!
"Then we were all silent."
Continue to pray, because that is the salvation of this people. (CP. 37; DV.2, 31).
 

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 11TH 1981

Vicka: "I recommend to the Gospa my parents who are in Germany."
I promise to protect them. Everything will go well. (DV. 2, 32; CP 37).
 

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 12TH 1981

As vacation approached, which permitted the seers to be back, the Blessed Virgin was happy:
Very soon you will all be united. You will be able to have a good time together. (CP. 38, DV. 2,32).
 

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 16TH 1981

Kneel down, my children, and pray. Persevere in prayer.
(CP. 38).
Jakov and Vicka: "Every word of the Blessed Virgin invited us to be joyful." (CP. 39).
 

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18TH 1981

"The Blessed Virgin did not respond to our questions.
She sang: 'Jesus Christ, in Your Narne.' After the first verse, she said: "
Come on, sing more joyfully. Why are you so pensive?
"After the prayer, she began, 'Queen of the Holy Rosary' and she departed." (CP. 39).
 

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19TH 1981

It is the date of the first ambiguous oracle on the Bishop. Complete text, which is questionable and disputed, has been referred to Annex 1.
 

MONDAY, DECEMBER 21ST 1981

Be on your guard, my children. Prepare yourselves for difficult days. All kinds of people will come here. (CP. 40).
 

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 24TH 1981

Celebrate the days which are coming. Rejoice with my Soil. Love your neighbor. May harmony reign among you. (CP. 41).
 

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 25TH 1981

Give glory to God, glorify Him and sing, my angels. (Bl. 53).
 

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 30TH 1981

In response to some questions concerning the sick, she began prayer with the "Our Father," then the song "The Queen of the Holy Rosary," and she departed. (CP. 42).
 

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31ST 1981

Ivan: "How can one put priests, who do not believe in the apparitions, on the right track?"
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 to believe. Faith is the foundation from which everything flows.
"Is it really you who appears at the foot of the cross?"
Yes, it is true. Almost every day 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. Every day I pray to my Son to forgive the sins of the world. (CP 42; cf. L2, 126).
 
 

CHAPTER 3

Apparitions in the "Chapel"

OPPOSITE THE SACRISTY

(January-February 1982 until April 11, 1985)


1982



The apparitions, since July 1981, often taking place in the church, where they occurred spontaneously toward the end of the rosary, are transferred to the room serving as a storeroom. It is opposite the sacristy and provided privacy from the curiosity of the pilgrims and every provocation on part of the police. This room was cleaned and decorated. Subsequently, it has since been called "chapel of the apparitions." Before the end of February this transfer was definitive, except for rare occasions (apparitions in the sacristy, when the chapel was found overrun or certain days for medical exams).
 

MONDAY, JANUARY 11TH 1982

I invite you very specially to participate at mass. Wait for me at church, that is the agreeable place. (CP. 43).
 

THURSDAY, JANUARY 14TH 1982

After the prayers, the songs and the questions, The Gospa reprimanded two seers because of their behavior, and recommended to them not to behave in this manner again. In case of observation, the other seers did not understand what the Gospa told those she reprimanded, and observed only her expression and guessed what it was all about. Those whom she reprimanded say that at that moment, she was gentle and attentive in respect for them. (CP. 44).
 

MONDAY, JANUARY 18TH 1982

On the matter of a sick person with heart problems:
There is little hope for her. I will pray for her.
After her departure, the children see the cross, the heart and the sun, signs which they perceive from time to time. (CP. 46).
 

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20TH 1982

Must the children from lzbicno meet us tomorrow? They say that you told them of this meeting.
It is not necessary for you to meet them.
They want to transfer Fr. Tomislav from here. What must he do?
If it is in God's design, that he depart, as has been the case with Fr. Jozo, have him abandon himself to the will of God. He must think very much, and you must pray for him.
(CP. 47).
 

THURSDAY, JANUARY 21ST 1982

The seers: Why don't you leave a concrete sign, so that the priests are convinced and that they be converted, in order to be able to convert the others?
The sign will appear at the desired time.
Why are there apparitions in 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?
What must we do so that peace may reign among the priests?
Fast and pray! (CP. 46).
 

FRIDAY, JANUARY 22ND 1982

Is the apparition at lzbicno coming from God or from the devil?
It is coming from God. (CP. 47).
 

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 2ND 1982

When must one celebrate the feast of The Queen of Peace?
The Blessed Virgin smiled as she answered:
I would prefer that it take place June 25th. The faithful have come for the first time on that day, on the hill. (CP. 48).
 

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 8TH 1982

Jakov and I were in the sacristy. When we began to pray the "Our Father," the Gospa arrived. It was five minutes after six. We questioned her on the matter of a person who was sick, emotionally:
He must pray. I will- help him within the limitation of my power.
To the Slovenes who were praying while she was with us:
Persevere in prayer.
Then she blessed some articles, (DV3, 3).
 

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9TH 1982

At the fourth "Our Father," the Blessed Virgin- arrived. We always ask questions with respect to the sick:
Pray for all the sick. Believe firmly. I will come to help, according to that which is in 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 it 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 for help from the Gospa! (Dv3,3).
 

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 10TH 1982

Jakov and I were alone. Just as every evening, we prayed, conversed with the Blessed Virgin, and asked many questions. To them she responded:
Pray, Pray! It is necessary to believe firmly, to go to confession regularly, and likewise receive Holy Communion. It is the only salvation.
Her preferred prayer is the "Creed." When we recite it, the Blessed Virgin does not cease to smile. I think that no one has seen her happier than during this prayer. (DV3, 4).
 

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 11TH 1982

Just like every evening, except on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, Jakov and I are alone. The Blessed Virgin begins first or all to pray the "Our Father," then the "Glory Be." We recommend the sick and then present her questions:
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. Goodbye. (DV3,4).
 

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 12TH 1982

Be more calm, more poised. Do not take sides with other children. Be agreeable, well mannered, pious!
When the Gospa prays, she joins her hands. When she speaks she opens them and raises them toward Heaven, her palms turned upwards. (DV3,5).
 

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13TH 1982

To the seminarians who were present:
Through prayer, one obtains everything. (C.52).
 

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 14TH 1982

We are four seers today. When we are in a group, I feel a little happier and joyful in the presence of the Holy Virgin. Likewise, the other four:
Be together like brothers and sisters. Do not argue.
Satan exists! He seeks only to destroy. With regards to you, pray, and persevere in prayer. No one will be able to do anything against you. (DV3, 6).
 

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16TH 1982

The Blessed Virgin began "Jesus in Your Name." Since she has appeared to us she hasn't been sad. Whatever she says, her countenance is smiling and filled with serenity. Her joy attracts us. She wants us to be joyful, we also, wanting nothing to deceive us, any intrigue, or inventive story.


FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19TH 1982

We asked if we could pray the "Hail Mary." She said yes. And while we prayed, she looked at us with a smile, but without praying with us. Truly, her beauty is indescribable. Since I have seen the Blessed Virgin, I have been filled with joy. Whatever her words may be, what she has told me, I have always done it. I have obeyed. She makes attentive remarks, as a mother.
Listen attentively at holy Mass. Be well mannered. Do not chatter during holy Mass. (DV3, 8).
 

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 21ST 1982

Be together, and do not argue, do not be disorderly. My angels, I will make you attentive. I will guide you on a sure way. (DV3, 9).
 

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 23RD 1982

When we asked the Gospa, she did not answer, but began immediately to pray. When we asked her if such a person were alive, she says:
Do not ask me any more questions! I know what there is in each sick person, or what there is in my power to help him. I will pray to my Son to put out His mercy on each one. (DV3, 10).
 

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 25TH 1982

Be persevering and courageous. Do not fear anything. Pray, and do not pay attention to others.
We asked for news about Fr. Jozo:
Do not fear for him. (DV3, 12).
 

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 28TH 1982

Thank Tomislav very much, for he is guiding you very well.
Then she smiles, and begins to say the "Glory Be."
Go in the peace of God, my angels! (DV3, 15).
 

END OF FEBRUARY AND BEGINNING OF MARCH, 1982.

Messages received by Jelena:
Dear children, if you would know how much I love you, your heart would weep over it.
If there is someone there who asks you for something, give it to him.
I also present myself to many hearts, and they do not open up. Pray so that the world may welcome my love.
Dear children, I would like for the whole world to be my child, but it does not want it. I wish to give everything for it. For that, Pray! (L2, 131).
 

MONDAY, MARCH 1ST 1982

All of you be happy, and may my blessing accompany you at each step.
She blessed many articles; she touched them with her hands. (DV3, 16). Since the Yugoslavian authorities demanded that they put an end to the prayer meetings for the young people, the Blessed Virgin was questioned and responded:
It is better to temporarily suspend prayer meetings and those
of meditation because of the authorities. Take them up later, when it will be possible. (CP. 49).
 

TUESDAY, MARCH 2ND 1982

A woman, who had come from Osijek, brought two large pictures of the Pope. The Blessed Virgin came at six o'clock with her smile. I believed she was smiling at us; but it was because of the pictures on the table. She said:
He is your father, my angels.
Then she began the "Our Father." On leaving she 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. (DV3,17).
 

THURSDAY, MARCH 4TH 1982

I asked questions with respect to a woman who had no children. She is not of our faith. The Blessed Virgin said:
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. (DV3, 19).
Go in peace, my angels. Goodbye.
 

FRIDAY, MARCH 5TH 1982

I questioned the Blessed Virgin on the matter of an Italian, who was very sick, and about another man who acquired cancer. She responded:
Tell them to pray and to put themselves in the hands of God. I too, will call on the mercy of my Son. I will do everything in my power to help them. But it will be necessary to believe completely. Without a strong faith, nothing is possible. Goodbye my angels. (DV3, 19).
 

SUNDAY, MARCH 7TH 1982

The Blessed Virgin said that she has been with Ivan (at the Seminary at Visoko):
He prays well; he is obedient. He follows my instructions. (DV3, 20).
 

MONDAY, MARCH 8TH 1982

Concerning a boy named Bora, (age 16), from Metkovic, who disappeared for a week:
He left because of many troubles. He himself, created some of the problems. (DV3, 21).
 

TUESDAY, MARCH 9TH 1982

On the matter of a young man from Hadromilje, named Mladen, who disappeared from his home:
He has serious problems. It is necessary to pray for him very much, my angels. The people are beginning to be converted. Prayer has been taken up again, in the homes, where people had no longer prayed. (DV3, 21).
 

THE BEGINNING OF APRIL 1982:

Mirjana:Do you wish the establishment of a special feast in your honor?
I wish a feast for the Queen of Peace, on the 25th of June, anniversary of the first apparition. (L2, 127).

HOLY WEEK: APRIL 4TH - APRIL 10TH 1982

Jelena sees Mary holding Jesus by the hand, and in the
palm of Jesus ' hand, the inscription "Glory." Asked about the meaning, the Blessed Virgin responded:
These are the names of all those who have been inscribed in the heart of Jesus. (L2, 132).
 

EASTER SUNDAY, APRIL 11TH 1982

Is it necessary to establish prayer groups, formed by Priests, Sisters and laity in the parish?
It is necessary, but not only here. Communities of prayer are necessary in all parishes. (CP.54). (It does not mean just "Charismatic Groups," as the polemists, adversaries of this movement, have indicated.
 

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21ST 1982

Father Vlasic questioned the seers. They say that the Blessed Virgin continues to appear to them everyday. The messages can be summarized thusly:
Be patient! Everything is developing according to God's plan. His promises will be realized. May one continue to pray, to do penance, and to be converted. (CP 55).
 

THURSDAY, APRIL 22ND 1982

Are the luminous signs at the cross on Krizevac natural,
or do they come from God? What does the letter "S" and the letter "T," which appear on the cross mean?
They are signs of God, and not of natural phenomena. "S" and "T" are signs of salvation. (Bl.55; CP.55).
 

SATURDAY, APRIL 24TH 1982

What must one do in order to have more cures?
Pray! Pray and believe firmly. Say the prayers which have already been requested. (Seven "Our Father's, " "Hail Mary's, "Glory Be's " and the "Creed.)
Do more penance. (CP.55).
 

SUNDAY, MAY 2ND 1982

I have come to call the world to conversion for the last time. Later, I will not appear any more on this earth. (L2,128).
 

THURSDAY, MAY 6TH 1982

May we write on a piece of paper, the date of the great sign, describe it, seal it, and put it in the archives? (as requested by the commission).


THURSDAY, MAY 13TH 1982

After the attempt on the life of John Paul II:
His enemies have wanted to kill him, but I protected him. (Bu. 151).
 

SPRING, 1982

Question asked at the request of the pastor at lzbicno, alleged place of other apparitions:
Why are there so many signs in Hercegovina?
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. People are surprised that you are appearing in so many places:
If it is necessary, I will appear in each home. (C.92-93).
With respect to the little seers from lzbicno : (lzbicno, 60 kilometers from Medjugorje. In 1982-83, 18 persons mostly females, said they had apparitions. The seers from Medjugorje were said to have received kind words for those from lzbicno, but the Blessed Virgin reminded them strongly, that they must not have any contact with these persons, nor invite them to Medjugorje.)
Did I not tell you not to come together with those children? I am your mother, you must obey me. (C93).
For Jakov, who was crying to see Vicka ill:
The cross is necessary because of the sins of the world. (L2, 128).
 
 

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 23RD 1982 (Possibly a few days preceding)

Just before the anniversary of June 24th, Vicka answered some questions asked by Fr. Tomislav Vlasic, who reported them in the parish Chronicle, on June Keith, regarding responses of Our Lady:

  1. The most important thing is that you, the seers, 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. (Some of the seers understood that these words were directed specifically to them, and they began to cry).
  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. (Repression by the authorities?).
  4. You have asked me to keep in this parish good and faithful priests 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 promises of God.
  5. With respect to the two Franciscans who had been suspended, see the Annex 1.
  6. With respect to a question from a theologian:

  7. Does the Holy Spirit have two natures?
    He has only one; the Divine nature.

  8. The seers: They have said that these would be the last apparitions on earth? Is it true?

  9. These apparitions are the last in the world.

"As far as I have understood," observes Tomislav Vlasic, "her answer is not only given in Medjugorje, but also in other parts of the world."
 

THURSDAY, JUNE 24TH 1982 OR FRIDAY, JUNE 25TH 1982

Before the evening Mass, during the apparition, the Virgin told the priests, through the intermediary of the seers:
Thank the people in my name for the prayers, the sacrifices and the penance. Have them persevere in prayer, fasting and conversion, and have them wait with patience the realization of my promise. Everything is unfolding according to God's plan. (C 98; CP 60 and 64).
 

MONDAY, JULY 12TH 1982

Will there be a third world war?
The third world war will not take place. (CP 68).
 

WEDNESDAY, JULY 21ST 1982

To the response conveyed by Father T. Vlasic on 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 seven Our Father's, Hail Mary's and Glory Be's 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.
A response to a question on 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. (CP 69).
 

SATURDAY, JULY 24TH 1982

Answer to some questions which were asked:
We go to Heaven in full conscience: that which we have now. At the moment of death, we are conscious of the separation of the body and the soul. It is false to teach people that we are re-born many times and that we 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. 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 received Communion at the end of his life. (CP 70).
 

SUNDAY, JULY 25TH 1982

A response to questions asked regarding Hell:
Today many persons go to Hell. God permits 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 better lot. (CP 71).
Response to questions regarding cures:
For the cure of the sick, it is important to say the following prayers: the Creed, seven Our Father's, Hail Mary's and Glory Be's, 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 revive this gift, the priest must pray with perseverance and believe firmly. (CP 71).
 

FRIDAY, AUGUST 6TH 1982 (Feast of the Transfiguration)

A response to questions which were asked concerning Confession:
One must invite people to go to Confession each month, especially the first Saturday. Here I have not spoken about 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. (CP 72).
That night the Gospa gave a sign to a group of young people who prayed with Ivan Dragicevic: two luminary signs descended on Krizevac and the church. This phenomenon was observed by Father Tomislav Vlasic near the church. Ivan commented on this phenomenon to all those who were there and added, "The Blessed Virgin told me that she would appear to you now in Heaven." (CP 72).
 

TUESDAY, AUGUST 10TH 1982

No special message, but the visionaries only said-the Blessed Virgin told us that now we can give some information in writing to people according to the plan which we had already worked out. (CP 73).
 

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 11TH 1982

No special message. The Blessed Virgin only scolded the seers for their lack of seriousness during the evening Mass.
 

SUNDAY, AUGUST 15TH 1982

The vision lasted about seven minutes. The Gospa entrusted a new secret to Vicka and Ivanka-only to them. The others saw that it was about a secret, but they did not understand anything. (CP 74).
 

MONDAY, AUGUST 16TH 1982

No special message. The Gospa only corrected "the very resonant and very rapid prayer of the seers and the people in church."
Mirjanasays that, at the time of the apparition, she sees heavenly persons: Jesus, Mary, angels, in three-dimensions, and earthly persons in two-dimension, at the same time she sees Father Jozo, or Ivan Ivankovic imprisoned because of their faith. (CP 74).
 

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 18TH 1982

Mirjana reports to Fr. Tomislav Vlasic what the Gospa has told her concerning the sick:
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. (CP 76).
Asked with respect to a plan of 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. (CP77).
(On this ambiguous message, see Annex 2.)
 

SUNDAY, AUGUST 29TH 1982

With reference to the critiques according to which 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 a practical advise: 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. (CP 79).
 

TUESDAY, AUGUST 31ST 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 protect particularly, those who have been consecrated to me. The great sign has been granted. It will appear independently of the conversion of the people. (CP 79).
 

THE END OF AUGUST 1982

Ivan is on the hill of Bijakovici with his friends. The Virgin appears to him.
Now, I am going to give you a sign in order to strengthen your faith.
They see two rays of light, one on the church, the other on the cross at Krizevac. (L2, 129).
 

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 4TH 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. (CP 80).
 

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 26TH 1982

For a religious who had come from Rome:
Have her strengthen the faith of those who have been entrusted to her.
For Father Faricy and Forrest:
They are on the good path, have them persist.
For 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. (CP 82).
 

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1ST 1982

I am happy because you have begun to prepare the monthly feast 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. (CP. 83).
 

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 4TH 1982

Questioned with respect to a vision of Andja, from Mostar, who had seen one evening during prayer, 13 persons coming from the East; another evening six persons:
It is about a true vision. They were some souls of her close family from Purgatory. It is necessary to pray for them. (CP 85).
 

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 6TH 1982

Frightened by the eighth secret, Mirjana prayed to the Blessed Virgin to preserve humanity from this calamity:

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 8TH 1982

Father Tomislav has the seers ask the Virgin if it is necessary to write to the Bishop and to priests so that they can call the faithful to intensify their prayers, or if it is better to wait for other events:
It is better to wait than to precipitate that. (CP 86).
 

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15TH 1982

Jakov: "Must Vicka take the prescribed medicines, or must she have herself admitted to a hospital in Zagreb?"
It is necessary to send Vicka to Zagreb.
Vicka refused to question the Blessed Mother on this subject. She said that she wanted to accept what God would send her. (CP 87).

MONDAY, DECEMBER 20TH 1982

With respect to the same article (Dec. 18, 1982), the visionaries ask: Is it necessary to give the faithful of Mostar objective information concerning the case in Hercegovina?
No!(CP 95).
Is it better for the seers to pray with you, and for the pilgrims to ask their questions to the priests instead?
Yes, it is better that the children pray with me, and that the pilgrims ask the priests and look for solutions with them. In the meanwhile I will continue to answer the questions which they ask me. (CP. 95).

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. (F2, 149-150).
Mirjana, I have chosen you, I have confided in you everything that is essential. I have also 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. (G. 1, 22).
 

MONDAY, DECEMBER 27TH 1982

Today the statue of the Queen of Peace was finished. It was sculptured by Vipotnik, a sculptor from Slovenia, and painted by Luka Stojaknac and Florijan Mickovic, who wanted to maintain anonymity. This statue has been a source of grace for Luka, who is Orthodox; he put his marriage in order.
The Seers: "May we put the statue in church?"
Yes, you may! (CP. 96).
It is this statue which had been venerated for a long time in the nave. it was removed from there on orders from the bishop on March 25th, 1985. It then found itself consigned
to the small chapel of the apparitions.
 

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 29TH 1982

Jelena:"May I know the ten secrets?"
I did not appear to you as to the other six because my plan is different. To them I entrusted messages and secrets. Forgive me if I cannot tell you the secrets which I have entrusted to them; it concerns a grace which is for them, but not for you. I appeared to you for the purpose of helping you to progress in spiritual life and through your intermediary I want to lead people to holiness. (Bo. 37).
 

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 31ST 1982

On Vicka's request, the Blessed Virgin gives this message for the new year:
Pray as much as possible and fast!
In the evening, to the seers:
You must persevere in prayer and fasting. (C. 140).

1983

SATURDAY, JANUARY 1ST 1983 (The Feast of Holy Mary, Mother of God.)

Ivanka: "Are you still appearing to Mirjana?"
After Christmas, I am no longer appearing to her for the present. (CP. 99).
 

BEGINNING OF 1983

Jelenaasks the Blessed Virgin on the authenticity of the apparitions of the six seers, and on the sign which has been promised:
Pardon me, but you cannot know it; it is a special gift for them. You will have to believe it like all the others. In the meantime, everything that they say corresponds to truth. (Bo.38).
 

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5TH 1983

Tomislav receives, from the four seers present (Ivan, Jakov, Maria and Vicka), the following information: Maria has received 7 secrets, Vicka 8, Jakov, Ivanka and Ivan 9, and Mirjana 10. We do not know how long the apparitions will last, nor why she no longer appears to Mirjana after Christmas. The Gospa invites us constantly to prayer, to fasting, to conversion. She confirms her promises.
Ivan thinks that the apparitions have ceased for Mirjana because she did not pray enough outside of the apparitions. The Gospa probably did it so that Mirjana would learn to pray in the faith, he volunteers. (According to other interpretations, the end of the apparitions would be, on the contrary, a sign of achievement and maturity.)
Questioned with respect to the time of the sign: "Which month? Which year?"
Ivan says: "It is forecast." (CP. 103-104).
 
 

FRIDAY, JANUARY 7TH 1983

Mary begins to tell her life to the visionaries. They are invited to write down her testimony. They will not be able to make it public until they have received her authorization. (CP. 105).
This transmission will last:

Maria, who was still attending the school for hairdressers in Mostar, received only an abridged account, the days when she was in Medjugorje.
For Vicka, it lasted until April 10th, 1985: a long account which filled three notebooks. Up to this day, the seers have not received authorization to reveal these contents.
 

MONDAY, JANUARY 10TH 1983

Confidences from Mirjana to Father Tomislav Vlasic:
"During the 18 months that I saw the Gospa, a great intimacy was established between us. I felt her maternal love. I could ask her all kinds of questions. Thus I asked her why God was so merciless in sending sinners to Hell for eternity?"
Men who go to Hell no longer want to receive any benefit
from God. They do not repent nor do they cease to swear and to blaspheme. They make up their mind to live in Hell and do not at all contemplate leaving it. (CAROL).
(Man's refusal is an irreversible choice.)
Questioned on the subject of Purgatory, the Blessed Virgin says:
There is there, different levels of which the lowest are close to Hell and the highest gradually draw 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 for them 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 close to God who is just, but good. The majority go to Purgatory. Many go to Hell. A small number go directly to Heaven. (C. 103).
 

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 12TH 1983

Regarding an American television team:
"Will they be able to finish without difficulties?

Transcribe all the lessons which I give you for the spiritual life; later you will deliver them to the authorities of the Church. (T. 64).
 

APRIL 4TH 1983 (Easter Monday)

A message addressed by Jelena to Tomislav, who had written on Good Friday, April 1st, a letter of protest on the subject of the problems suffered in the parish.
"I was expecting the corrections from a Canonist and no one knew anything except the Pastor" he observes in detail. Monday, Jelena appeared without knowing anything, and tells me:
"Do not have recourse to anyone. When you have a problem, you must remain smiling and praying. When God begins a work, no one will stop it."
Father Vlasic judges this fundamental message as per (VB. 4, p. 100), "the Madonna does not stop telling us":
Pray, fast, and allow Got to act.
Jelena transmits the message from the Blessed Virgin:
Do not pity anyone. If the police cause you some anxiety, continue on your way joyful and calm. Pray for them. "en God begins His work, no one can stop it. (CP.127-bis).
Father Vlasic notes in the "Parish Chronicle" the internal locutions which have been received by Jelena after December 15, 1982. The Madonna's message:
Hurry to be converted. Do not wait for the great sign. For the unbelievers, it will then be too late to be converted. For you who have the faith, this time constitutes a great opportunity for you to be converted, and to deepen your faith. Fast on bread and water before every feast, and prepare yourselves through prayer.

Fast once a week on bread and water in honor of the Holy Spirit outside of Friday.

Have the largest possible number of persons pray and fast during the novena of the Holy Spirit, so that it may spread over the church. Fast and pray for the Bishop. (CP. 127 bis).
 

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20TH 1983

To Jelena, the Blessed Virgin, in tears:
I give all the graces to those who commit grave sins, but they do not convert. Pray! Pray for them! Do not wait for Friday. Pray now. Today your prayers and your penance are necessary to me. (CP. 130).
 

THURSDAY, APRIL 21ST 1983

You (the visionaries), must behave well; be pious and set a good example for the faithful.
Jakov admits that the Blessed Virgin has made remarks to him several times, concerning his conduct. She has taught him how to participate at Mass, to pray, and to behave around others. (CP. 130).
 

SUNDAY, APRIL 24TH 1983

Message for an Italian doctor who is present:
I bless him just as 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 like the sick
for whom you have prayed this evening, and those for whom you will pray. (Bo. 11).
 

MONDAY, APRIL 25TH 1983

Message received by Jelena, these last days:
Be converted! It will be too late when the sign comes. Beforehand, several warnings will be given to the world. Have people hurry to be converted. I need your prayers and your penance. (CP. 131).
My heart is burning with love for you. It suffices for you to be converted. To ask questions is unimportant. Be converted. Hurry to proclaim it. Tell everyone that it is my wish, and that I do not cease repeating it. Be converted, be converted. It is not difficult for me to suffer for you. I beg you, be converted.
I will pray to my Son to spare you the punishment. Be converted without delay. You do not know the plans of God; you will not be able to know them. You will not know what God will send, not what He will do. I ask you only to be converted. That is what I wish. Be converted! Be ready for everything, but, be converted. That is all I wish to say to you. Renounce everything. All that is part of conversion. Goodbye, and may peace be with you. (CP. 132).
 

FRIDAY, APRIL 29TH 1983

Marijana, (aged 11) sees the Blessed Virgin at the same time as Jelena, but she does not hear her words.
Jelena: "Why doesn't Marijana hear?"
I do not want to separate you. (CP. 133).
(Does the Gospa wish to mean that these two adolescents compliment each other?)
 

THURSDAY, MAY 5TH 1983

With respect to a sick person from Vienna: The doctor has
diagnosed schizophrenic. Some priests think it is a question of diabolical possession.
It is a diabolic possession. One can succeed only through prayer. (CP 135).
 

WEDNESDAY, MAY 25TH 1983

To Jelena:
Assemble about twenty young people who are ready to follow Jesus, without reservation. Bring them together within a months notice. I will initiate them into the spiritual life. They can likewise be more than twenty. Even some adults and children can participate, all those who will accept the rule.
I will ask these people to do penance for certain intentions. They will fast and pray for the Bishop. They will give up what they cherish the most, drink, coffee, pleasures, television. It is necessary to have persons who wish to consecrate themselves more specifically to prayer, and to fast. I will give them the rules to follow. (see June 16, 1983)
The persons who will follow these rules, will be consecrated whatever their state in life may be. (CP 136).
 

SATURDAY, MAY 28TH 1983

To Jelena:
It is very beautiful to remain Thursdays, for the adoration of my Son in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar. It is likewise beautiful to venerate the cross each Friday. I wish that every Saturday, which is the day that the Church had dedicated to me, you will consecrate to me at least a quarter of an hour. Meditate during this time, on my life, my messages, and pray. (CP. 141).
 

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 1ST 1983

Dear Children: I hoped that the world would begin to be converted on its own. Do now, everything you can, so that the world can be converted. (CP. 137).
 

THURSDAY, JUNE 2ND 1983

Read what has been written about Jesus. Meditate on it, and convey it to others. (CP. 137).
 

FRIDAY, JUNE 3RD 1983

Father Vlasic has begun to form a prayer group requested by the Virgin on May 25th. (Jakov, Vicka, Ivanka).
"What do you expect of Fr. Tomislav? Has he begun well?"
Yes, it is good. Have him continue.
"What should one do so that people will not drive from here, the priests who work with faith and love?"
Pray and fast for this intention. I will tell you when the moment comes, what you must do.
"Father Tomislav wants to call the parish to prayer and fasting, so that the church recognizes that the events here are supernatural. It is a good way?"
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. (CP. 138).
 

FRIDAY, JUNE 10TH 1983

Jelena, Marijana and Anita, (age 11), are arguing. The first two make peace, but Anita refuses. The other two enter the church. Anita follows them, and suddenly extends to them, her hand. An indescribable joy penetrates their hearts.
I had been waiting for quite a while for your success. Continue in this manner, says the Gospa. (CP. 142-143).
 

SUNDAY, JUNE 12TH 1983

Ivan: May the priests begin new work around the church or must they request authorization 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. (CP. 145).
 

TUESDAY, JUNE 14TH 1983

Ivan: What do you wish that the priests preach during the ten anniversary days of the first apparitions?
Have them do what they think is best. It would be good to remind the faithful of the events which have been revealed here in relation to my coming. Have them remind them the reasons for my coming here. (CP.145).
 

THURSDAY, JUNE 16TH 1983

On May 25, 1983, the Blessed Virgin has repeated her desire that a prayer group, totally abandoned to Jesus, be formed. On June 16th she dictated to Jelena the rules for this group:

  1. Renounce all passions and inordinate desires. Avoid television, particularly evil programs, excessive sports, the unreasonable enjoyment of food and drink, alcohol, tobacco, etc.
  2. Abandon yourselves to God without any restrictions.
  3. Definitely eliminate all anguish. Whoever abandons himself to God does not have room in his heart for anguish. Difficulties will persist, but they will serve for spiritual growth and will render glory to God.
  4. Love your enemies. Banish from your heart, hatred, bitterness, preconceived judgments. Pray for your enemies and call the Divine blessing over them.
  5. Fast twice a week on bread and water. Reunite the group at least once a week.
  6. Devote at least three hours to prayer daily, of which at least, half an hour in the morning and half an hour in the evening. Holy Mass and the prayer of the Rosary are included in this time of prayer. Set aside moments of prayer in the course of the day, and each time that circumstances permit it, receive Holy Communion. Pray with great meditation. Do not look at your watch all the time, but allow yourself to be led by the grace of God. Do not concern yourself too much with the things of this world, but entrust all that in prayer to Our Heavenly Father. If one is very preoccupied, he will not be able to pray well because internal serenity is lacking. God will contribute to lead to a successful end, the things of here below, if one strives to do his utmost in working on his own.

  7. Those who attend school or go to work must pray half an hour in the morning and in the evening, and, if possible, participate in the Eucharist. It is necessary to extend the spirit of prayer to daily work (that
    is to say, to accompany work with prayer.)

  8. Be prudent because the Devil tempts all those who have made a resolution to consecrate themselves to God, most particularly, those people. He will suggest to them that they are praying very much, they are fasting too much, that they must be like other
    young people and go in search of pleasures. Have them not listen to him, nor obey him. It is to the voice of the Blessed Virgin that they should pay attention. When they will be strengthened in their faith, the Devil will no longer be able to seduce them.
  9. Pray very much for the Bishop and for those who

  10. are responsible for the church. No less than half of their prayers and sacrifices must be devoted to this intention.

To Jelena:
I have come to tell the world that God is truth; He exists.
True happiness and the fullness of life are in Him. I have come here as Queen of Peace to tell the world that peace is necessary for the salvation of the world. In God, one finds true joy from which true peace if derived. (L1, 100).
 

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. (L1, 99).
To Jelena, concerning Anita, to whom the Blessed Virgin appeared after Good Friday, and who only seldom gets together with Jelena and Marijana, because of her many obligations:
If she cannot come because of her responsibilities, have her pray for a quarter of an hour at least, and I will appear to her and bless her.
 

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 22ND 1983

To Jelena:
Love your enemies and bless them! (L1. 100).
 

FRIDAY, JUNE 24TH 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 to me in order to save you. I will pray to my Son not to punish the world; but I beseech 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 acknowledgement 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. (C. 145 - 146).
I thank the people who have prayed and fasted. Persevere and help me to convert the world. (CP. 151).
 

SUNDAY, JUNE 26TH 1983

Love your enemies. Pray for them and bless them. (MM. 24).
 

TUESDAY, JUNE 28TH 1983

To Jelena:
Pray for three hours a day. You pray very little. Pray at least a half hour in the morning and in the evening. (L2. 133).
 

FRIDAY, JULY 1ST 1983 (toward 11 o'clock at night on Krizevac)

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. Go in the peace of God. (Bl. 81).
 

THE BEGINNING OF JULY 1983

Concerning the tensions which involved the diocese:
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. (L2. 134).
 

SATURDAY, JULY 2ND 1983

To Jelena:
Devote five minutes to the Sacred Heart. Each family is an image of it. (L1. 100).
 

MONDAY, JULY 4TH 1983

To Jelena:
You have begun to pray three hours a day, but you look at your watch, preoccupied with your work. Be concerned with only the essential. Let yourself be guided by the Holy Spirit in depth, then your work will go well. Do not hurry. Let yourself be guided and you will see that everything will be accomplished well. (L1. 100).
 

TUESDAY, JULY 26TH 1983

To Jelena:
Be on your guard. This period is dangerous for you. The Devil is trying to lead you astray from your way. Those who give themselves to God will be the object of attacks. (L. 2. 134).
To Maria:
Dear children, today I would like to invite you to constant prayer and penance. Particularly, have the young people of this parish become more active in their prayer. (F2, 113).
 

TUESDAY, AUGUST 2ND 1983

To Jelena:
Consecrate yourself to the Immaculate Heart. Abandon yourselves completely. I will protect you. I will pray to the Holy Spirit. Pray to Him also. (L2, 134).
 

SATURDAY, AUGUST 6TH 1983

On orders form the Bishop, Father Pervan, the parish priest put an end to the custom which calls for the seers beginning the prayers of the Rosary and the seven Our Father's, Hail Mary's and Glory Be's. Jakov questioned the Blessed Virgin on this subject:
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.
(CP. 165).
 

FRIDAY, AUGUST 12TH 1983

This was an exceptionally long apparition (38 minutes). The Blessed Virgin gives the seers instructions to guide their lives which only concerned them:
Pray more for your spiritual life. Do your utmost in this sense. Pray for your Bishop. (CP. 158).
 

MONDAY, AUGUST 15TH 1983

To Jelena:
See how I am happy here! There are many who have come to honor me. In the meanwhile, do not forget that in other places there are still more persons who hurt me and offend me. (CP 160).
Do not be in anxiety. May peace unite your hearts. Every disorder comes from Satan.
To the young people who are returning to school:
Be careful not to diminish the spirit of prayer. (L1. 101).
Satan is enraged against those who fast and those who are converted. (U. 101).
 

TUESDAY, AUGUST 23RD 1983

With respect to Father Emilien Tardif, the Canadian priest of the charismatic renewal:
Have him announce my messages to the whole world. Let Jesus, only Jesus, be at the center of his efforts. (Bl. 368; CP. 162).
 

THURSDAY, AUGUST 25TH 1983

Father Tardif, Father Raucourt and Dr. Phillippe Madre have been arrested and expelled by the Yugoslavian authorities:
Do not worry for them. Everything is in God's plan. (CP. 163).
 

MONDAY, AUGUST 29TH 1983

For the intention of a group of young people before their departure on their pilgrimage to Brijeg:
I wish that you pray throughout your trip, and at 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. (CP. 159).
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. (CP. 159).
 

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 5TH 1983

The mother of Jakov (12 years old) dies. The Blessed Virgin consoles him and reveals to him:
Your mother is with me in Heaven. (CP. 163).
 

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 12TH 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 again-Pray! (BN 5, 7).
 

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16TH 1983

In my messages, I recommend to everyone, and to the Holy Father in particular to spread the message which I have received from my Son here at Medjugorje. I wish to entrust to the Pope,
the word with which I came here: 'MIR, (peace),' which he must spread everywhere. And here is a message which is especially for him: That he bring together the Christian people, through his words and his preaching; that he spread particularly among the young people, the messages which he has received from the Father in his prayers, when God inspires him. (CP. 169).
 

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 26TH 1983

My Son suffers very much because the world is not converting. May the world be converted and make peace. (CP.171).
 

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29TH 1983

To Jelena:
I desire for a great peace and a great love to grow in you Consequently, Pray!
For three priests from Liverpool:
Preach my messages. Speak about the events at Medjugorje. Continue to increase your prayers. (Bl. 368).
 

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15TH 1983

To Jakov:
My Son suffers very much because men do not want to be reconciled. They have not listened to me. Be converted, be reconciled. (CP, not paged).
 

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20TH 1983

To Jelena, for the prayer group:
I ask you for a commitment of four years. It is not yet the time to choose your vocation. The important thing is first of all, to enter into prayer. Later, you will make the right choice.
For the parish:
Have all the families consecrate themselves to the Sacred Heart each day. I am very happy when the entire family meets to pray each morning, for half an hour. (L1. 101).
 

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21ST 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. (L1. 101).
 

MONDAY, OCTOBER 24TH 1983

To Jelena, for the prayer group:
If you pray, a source of life will flow from your hearts. If you pray with strength, if you pray with faith, you will receive graces from this source, and your group will be strengthened. (Ba. 45).
 

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25TH 1983

To Jelena:
Pray! Pray! Prayer will give you everything. It is with prayer that you can obtain everything. (Ba. 45).
 

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 26TH 1983

To Jelena:
I pour out my blessing over you, and my heart wishes to be with you. (Ba. 45).
 

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27TH 1983

To Jelena:
Pray, pray, pray. You do not learn anything from chatter, but only from prayer. If someone asks you about me, and about what I say, answer: 'That doesn't explain anything. It is in praying that we will understand better' (Ba. 45).
 

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28TH 1983

To Jelena:
I see that you are tired. I wish to support you in your effort, to take you in my arms so that you may be close to me. All those who wish to ask me questions, I will answer: 'There is only one response, prayer, a strong faith, an intense prayer, and fasting.' (Ba. 46).
 

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29TH 1983

To Jelena:
I give you my heart; receive it! I would not want to distress you, nor to stop talking to you, but I cannot stay always with you. You have to get used to it. In the meantime, I wish to be constantly with you, from the bottom of my heart. It is necessary to pray very much, not to say: 'If today we have not prayed, it is nothing serious.'
You must strive to pray. Prayer is the only road which leads to peace. If you pray and fast, you will obtain everything that you ask for. (Ba. 46).
 

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30TH 1983

To Jelena:
Why do you not put your trust in me? I know that you have been praying for a long time, but really, surrender yourself Abandon your concerns to Jesus. Listen to what He says in the Gospel: And who among you, through his anxiety, is able to add a single cubit, to the length of his life.' (Mt. 6:27).
Pray also, in the evening when you have finished your day. Sit down in your room, and say to Jesus: 'Thank you.'
If in the evening you fall asleep in peace, and in prayer, in the morning you will walk up thinking of Jesus. You will then be able to pray for peace, but if you fall asleep in dis traction, the day after will be misty, and you will forget even to pray that day. (Ba. 46).
 

MONDAY, OCTOBER 31ST 1983

To Jelena:
I know that you prayed today, and that you did all your work while praying. Still, I have a particular intention for which I am asking you to say each day, seven Our Father's, seven Hail Mary's, and the Creed. (Ba. 47).
 

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4TH 1983

To Jelena:
I wish that you tell them, that tomorrow is a day of fasting, in order to sanctify yourselves in the Holy Spirit. And pray! Let this message be conveyed to the group. (Ba. 47).
 

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5TH 1983

Jelena: "Our Lady looked at us tenderly and said:"
I know my children, that you have worked and prayed today. But, I beseech you, be generous, persevere, continue to pray. (Ba 47).
 

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 6TH 1983

To Jelena:
Where are the prayers which you addressed to me? My clothes were sparkling. Behold them soaked with tears. Oh, if you would know how the world today is plunged into sin. It seems to you that the world sins no longer, because here, you live in a peaceful world where there is no confusion or perversity.
If you know how lukewarm they are in their faith, how many do not listen to Jesus. Oh, if you knew how much I suffer, you would sin no more. Oh, how I need your prayers. Pray! (Ba. 47).
 

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7TH 1983

To Jelena:
Do not go to confession through habit, to remain the same after it. No, it is not good. Confession should give an impulse to your faith. It should stimulate you and bring you closer to Jesus. If confession does not mean anything for you, really, you will be converted with great difficulty. (Ba. 47).
 

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8TH 1983

To Jelena:
Pray and fast! All that you can do for me is to pray and fast. (Ba. 48).
 

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9TH 1983

You will be subjected to trials and you will endure them with great ease. We will be ready to show you how to escape from them if you accept us. Do not say that the Holy Year has ended and that there is no need to pray. On the contrary, double your prayers, because the Holy Year is just another step ahead.
At this time, the risen Jesus appeared. Rays of light came forth from His wounds. He said:


HOLY THURSDAY, APRIL 19TH 1984

Message for the parish:
Dear children, share my compassion; pray, pray, pray!

To Jelena:
I'm going to reveal a spiritual secret to you: if you want to be stronger than evil, make yourself a plan of personal prayer Take a certain time in the morning, read a text from Holy Scripture, anchor the Divine word in your heart, and strive to live it during the day, particularly during the moment of trials. In this way, you will be stronger than evil. (Bl. 186).
That same day, the Blessed Virgin had "dictated" to Jelena the following prayer:

1. It is an ambiguous and confusing expression on which one has commented in different ways. According to Fr. Slavko, it means: "That I know how to love your will when it differs from mine."

To T. Vlasic' question, asked by Jelena:
"How could Jesus pray all night?" "With what method?"

If you want to be stronger against evil, have an active conscience. For that, pray very much in the morning and read a passage from the Gospel. Plant the Divine Word in your heart and live it during the day, in this special way, in trials and in the evening, you will be very strong. (T. Vlasic, Aug. 3, 1984).
 

GOOD FRIDAY, APRIL 20TH 1984

To Jelena:
You should be filled with joy. Today, Jesus died for your salvation. He descends into Hell and opens the gates of paradise. Let joy reign in your hearts!
When you pray, seek the advantage of prayer. Prayer is a conversation with God. To pray means to listen to the Lord. Prayer is for me a service, because after it all things become clear. Prayer leads to knowing happiness.
 

HOLY SATURDAY, APRIL 21ST 1984

To Jelena:
Raise your hands, yearn for Jesus because in his Resurrection, he wants to fill you with graces. Be enthusiastic about the Resurrection. All of us in Heaven are happy, but we seek the joy of your hearts. My Son's gift and mine, at this moment is this: you will be comforted in your trials, they will be easier for you because we will be close to you. If you listen to us, we will show you how to overcome them.
Pray very much tomorrow. May Jesus truly rise in your families, that peace be established there, where there are wars. I wish that someone is born again in your hearts. My children, I thank you. Continue to bring about the Resurrection of Jesus in all men. The Holy Year has ended, but it represents only a step in our life. Continue to pray. (BN 18,24).
 

EASTER SUNDAY, APRIL 22ND 1984

We all rejoice in Heaven. Rejoice with us. (DN 1,27).
 

MONDAY, APRIL 23RD 1984

There is no need to give more information to the people, they already know what they are supposed to do. (T. Vlasic, Aug. 12, 1984 VB 1, 861).
 

TUESDAY, APRIL 24TH 1984

With sadness and with tears:
So many people, after they have begun here to pray, to be converted, to fast, and do penitence, quickly forget when they return home, and return to their bad habits. (DN 1,27).
The information suffices. People already know enough. Tell them this place is a place of prayer. Pray as much as you can, pray however you can, but pray more always. Each of you could pray even four hours a day. But I know that many do not understand because they think only of living for their work.
T. Vlasic then had this conveyed to Our Lady: "If I tell this to the people, then they will go away completely."
Even you do not understand. It is hardly a sixth of your day. (T. Vlasic, May 26, 1984, VB 1, 30).
To Jelena:
Many times, confronting justice and confronting your sins, many times I returned from your home in tears. I could not say a single word. I am your Mother and I do not want to oppose you. But on you, will depend what I wish to do, in you.
We must rejoice in Jesus, to make Him happy. (Tk. Vlasic, Nov. 10, 1984, VB 1, 128).
 

THURSDAY, APRIL 26TH 1984

No message.
 

MONDAY, APRIL 30TH 1984

Maria asks the reason for there not being a message last

Thursday:
I had a special message for the parish so as to awaken the faith of all the believers. In the meantime, I do not want to force anyone to whatever it may be which would not be felt or desired. Not all have accepted the Thursday messages. At the beginning there were more.
But now it seems that all that has become common place to them. And recently, some have asked for the message, only out of curiosity, and not with faith and piety to my Son and me. (F 2,110).
 

THURSDAY, MAY 3RD 1984

No message.
 

THURSDAY, MAY 10TH 1984

The absence of a message, the 26th of April, and again the 3rd of May, had been reported in the same way as the explanation of April 30th. The response was quick in coming:
I address you the words, and I will continue to do so. But listen to these instructions.
 

THURSDAY, MAY 17TH 1984

To Maria for the parish:
I am happy today because many of you have desired to consecrate yourselves to me. I thank you for it. You have not been mistaken. My Son Jesus Christ wants, through my intercession, to extend the graces of predilection over you. He rejoices that you are consecrating yourselves to Him.
 

SATURDAY, MAY 19TH 1984

To Jelena:
Dear children, at this time it is especially necessary for you to consecrate yourselves to me and to my heart. Love, pray and fast.
 

MONDAY, MAY 21ST 1984

To Jelena:
O dear children, how I wish that you would turn to me. Imagine my little children that it is the end of the school year and you have reached halfway That is why now you must become a little more serious. (Ba 62).
 

WEDNESDAY, MAY 23RD 1984

To Jelena:
I wish that the parish prepare itself through a novena, to receive the sacrament of Confirmation on the day of the feast of the Ascension. (which will take place May 31). (M. 30).
 

THURSDAY, MAY 24TH 1984

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children, I have already said it to you; I have chosen you in a special way, just as you are. I am your mother; I love all of you. At every moment, when you have difficulties, do not be afraid because I love you, even when you are far from me and my Son.
I ask you not to permit my heart to cry with tears of blood, because of souls who are lost through sin. That is why dear children, pray, pray, pray!
 

FRIDAY, MAY 25TH 1984

To Jelena:
I truly wish that you would be pure on the day of Pentecost. Pray, pray that your spirit be changed on that day. (Ba 62).
 

SATURDAY, MAY 26TH 1984

To Jelena:
Dear children, thank you for every prayer Try to pray continuously, and do not forget that I love you and wish that all of you would love one another.
To Jelena, who is requested to ask questions of the Blessed Mother:
For all of these questions, there is an answer: pray to the Holy Spirit so that He may enlighten you, and you will come to know all that you wish. (Ba 63).
 

MONDAY, MAY 28TH 1984

To Jelena:
Love is a gift from God. Pray then, that God may give you the gift to love. (Ba 62).
 

WEDNESDAY, MAY 30TH 1984

To Jelena:
The priests should visit families, more particularly those who do not practice anymore, and who have forgotten God. Priests should carry the Gospel of Jesus to the people, and teach them the way of prayer. And the priests themselves, should pray more and even fast. They should give to the poor, what they don 't need. (T 64).
 

THURSDAY, MAY 31ST 1984 (Feast of the Ascension)

To Maria, for the parish:
I will give you the message for the parish, Saturday, June 2nd. It should be announced on Sunday.
 

MAY 1984

To Jelena, after inquiring about August 5th, 1984, if they would be celebrating her two thousandth birthday:
Throughout the centuries, I have given myself completely to you. Is it too much to give me, three days? Do not work on those days. Take your rosaries and pray. Fasting has been forgotten during the last quarter of the century, within the Catholic Church. (T. 57).
Jelena: "I know that all families can pray four hours a day. But, if I tell that to people, they will back out."
Don 't you understand, that it is only one-sixth of the day? (F2, 113).
 

FRIDAY, JUNE 1ST 1984

To Jelena:
May the love of God be always in you, because without it, you cannot be fully converted. Let the rosary in your hands make you think of Jesus.
Dear children, strive to be absorbed in mass, just as you should. (J).
 

SATURDAY, JUNE 2ND 1984

To Maria, for the parish (a message which had been anticipated: it will not be given Thursday, June 7th)
Dear children, this evening I recommend to you the novena (of Pentecost). Pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on all your families, and on your parish. Pray and you will not be sorry for it. God will bestow His gifts on you, thanks to the fact that you will be glorifying Him until the end of your life. (F2, 124).

To Jelena:
Thank you for every prayer. Continue to pray, but pray with the heart. Dear children, again it is necessary for you to pray to the Holy Spirit and it would be good for you to pray seven 'Our Fathers,' in the church, as one does it for Pentecost. (J).
During the novena, in preparation for Pentecost, the priest who leads the prayer, makes a brief introduction before each "Our Father" to ask for the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit.
 

MONDAY, JUNE 4TH 1984

Dear children, I am happy that you have begun to pray as I requested of you. Continue. (Ba 63).
 

FRIDAY, JUNE 8TH 1984

To Jelena:
Dear children, you need love. Ihave said it to you many times, and I remind you. Continue only to pray and be happy because I am with you. (J).
 

SATURDAY, JUNE 9TH 1984 (Vigil of Pentecost)

Tomorrow evening, pray to receive the spirit of truth. More particularly, you, members of this parish. The spirit of truth is indispensable to you in order to convey the messages, such as I give them to you, without adding or deleting whatever it may be. Pray, so that the Holy Spirit inspires you, a spirit of prayer, so that you may pray more. I your mother, find that you pray too little.
 

MONDAY, JUNE 11TH 1984

To Jelena:
I wish that you continue to pray and to fast.
To the group:
I wish that you would become like a flower in the spring. The love which I give you is great, but sometimes you reject it, and thus, it becomes less. Always accept immediately, the gifts which I give you, so that you can profit from them. (J).

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 13TH 1984

Dear children, I invite you to pray more, you and the entire parish, until the day of the anniversary. Let your prayer become a sign of offering to God. Dear children, I know that you are all tired. You do not know how to offer yourselves to me. Offer yourselves completely to me these days. (Bl. 141).
 

THURSDAY, JUNE 14TH 1984

Pray, Pray!
 

MIDDLE OF JUNE, 1984

To Jelena:
Prepare yourselves through prayer, for the third anniversary of the beginning of the apparitions. June 25th should be celebrated as the Feast of Mary, 'Queen of Peace.' (M30).
 

THURSDAY, JUNE 21ST 1984

To Maria, for the parish:
Pray pray, pray! Thank you for having responded to my call.
To Jelena:
If you knew how much I love you, you would cry with joy. When anyone is before you, and asks you something, you will give it to him. lam before so many hearts, but they remain closed. Pray so that the world receives my love. (BN 18,24).
Each member of the group is like aflower; and if someone tries to crush you, you will grow and will try to grow even more. If someone crushes you a little, you will recover. And if someone pulls a petal, continue to grow as though you were complete.
To Marijana:
My only wish is that you become as joyful and enthusiastic as you were during the first days of my apparitions. (Ba 64).
 

SATURDAY, JUNE 23RD 1984

Dear children, lam very happy that there are so many people here this evening. Thank God alone. (Ba).
After Easter, Our Lady does not speak to Jelena or Marijana every day, but specially on Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.
 

SUNDAY, JUNE 24TH 1984 (Feast of Corpus Christi)

Third anniversary of the apparitions.

Thank you for all your sacrifices. (DN 1,27).

TUESDAY, JUNE 26TH 1984

When I say pray, pray, pray, I do not want to say to only increase the number of hours of prayer, but also to reinforce the desire for prayer, and to be in contact with God. Place yourself permanently in a state of spirit bathed in prayer. (F2, 112).

MONDAY, JULY 16TH 1984

I pray for the priests and the parishioners, that no one may be troubled. I know the changes which will take place soon, (in the parish clergy). At the time of the changes, I will be there.

FRIDAY, JULY 20TH 1984

Late in the evening, on the hill of the apparitions:
Open your hearts to me, come close. Say in a loud voice, your intentions, and your prayers.
The Blessed Virgin paid close attention to the prayers of the seers. When they prayed for the Bishop of Mostar, her eyes were filled with tears. While crying, she tells them:
You are my little flowers. Continue to pray my task is lighter because of it.
She disappeared into Heaven, as she continued to cry, after she had blessed everyone with a crucifix. (T. 43).

To Jelena:
This message is dedicated to the Pope and to all Christians. Prepare the second millennium of my birth which will take place August 5th, 1984 Throughout the centuries, I consecrated my entire life to you. Is it too much for you to consecrate three days for me? Do not work, on that day, but take up the rosary and pray. (M. 30).

I am happy for your participation at Mass. Continue as you did this evening. Thank you for having resisted the temptation of Satan. (DN 1,33).
 

SUNDAY, AUGUST 5TH 1984

The celebration of the second millennium of Mary's birthday was preceded by three days of fasting and continuous prayer. Seventy priests heard confessions without respite; there were conversions in great numbers.
Never in my life have I cried with sorrow, as I have cried this evening with joy. Thank you! (RN 18,27).
In anticipation of this day the Gospa had said:
The priest who will hear confession will have great joy on that day.
During these 3 days of fasting and continuous prayer the seers say the Blessed Virgin was "very joyful," and she repeated:
I am very happy, continue, continue. Continue to pray and to fast.
Her joy seemed to have reached a peak Sunday, August 5th. Like a flower when it blooms, and full of joy, she said:

To Jelena:
Dear children, you must understand that one has to pray. Prayer is no joke, prayer is a conversation with God. In every prayer you must listen to the voice of God. Without prayer one can not live. Prayer is life. (T. Vlasic, November 10. 1984; VB. 1, 130).
 

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13TH 1984

Dear children! I continually need your prayers. You wonder what all these prayers are for. Look around, dear children, and you will see how much ground sin has gained in this world. Because of that, pray that Jesus conquers.
 

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20TH 1984

Message for the parish:
Dear children! Today I ask you to start fasting, putting your heart in it. There are many people who fast only because everyone else is fasting. It has become a custom which no one wants to stop.

To Jelena:
I love you. Love me, love one another. (DN 1,33).
 

MONDAY, OCTOBER 8TH 1984

Let all the prayers that you say in the evening in your homes, be for the conversion of sinners, because the world is truly in sin. Recite the rosary every evening. (F2, 106).
Jakov was sick that day and received this message at his home:

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11TH 1984

Message for the parish:
Dear children! Thank you for offering all your afflictions to God, even at this time when He is trying your patience as you reap your crops. (Our Lady is alluding to prolonged rain which came in the middle of the harvesting and caused great damage.) Be aware, dear children, that He loves you and that it is for that reason that He tests you. Always present your burdens to God and do not worry.
 

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13TH 1984

For the priests of the Marian Movement of Priests:
A message to you and to all those who love me. Dear children, pray unceasingly and ask the Holy Spirit to inspire you always. In everything that you ask, in everything that you do, look only for the will of God. (BN 18,27).
Live according to your convictions and respect others. (Bl. 221).

Dear children! Today I ask you to read the Bible in your homes every day. Place it in a visible place there, where it will always remind you to read it and to pray.
 

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20TH 1984

When you pray, you must feel more. Prayer is a conversation with God. To pray means to listen to God. Prayer is useful for you because after prayer everything is clear. Prayer makes one know happiness. Prayer can teach you how to cry. Prayer can teach how to blossom. Prayer is not a joke. Prayer is a dialogue with God. (T. Vlasic, November 10, 1984; VB 1, 125-126).
 

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 24TH 1984

At 10:00 in the evening at Krizevac:
My dear children, I am so happy to see you pray. Pray with me so that God's plan may be realized, thanks to your prayers and to mine. Pray more, and more intensely. (T.45).
 

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25TH 1984

Message for the parish:
Dear children! Pray during this month. God has allowed me to help you every day with graces, in order to protect you from evil. This month is mine. I would like to give it to you. Pray and God will give you the graces that you ask for. I will support your requests.
 

OCTOBER 1984

I would like to guide you spiritually, but 1 would not know how to help you, if you are not open. It suffices for you to think, for example, where you were with your thoughts yesterday during mass. When you go to mass, your trip from home to church should be a time of preparation for mass. You should also receive Holy Communion with an open and pure heart; purity of heart and openness. Do not leave the church without an appropriate act of thanksgiving. I can help you only if you are accessible to my suggestions; I can not help you if you are not open. (T-59).
The most important in spiritual life is to ask for the gift of the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit comes, then peace will be established. When that occurs, everything changes around you. Things will change.
(T. 59).
 

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1ST 1984

Message for the parish:

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8TH 1984

Message for the parish:
Dear children! You are not aware of the importance of the messages which God is sending you through me. He is giving you great graces and you do not realize it. Pray to the Holy Spirit for enlightenment. If only you knew how many graces God is giving you, you would pray without ceasing.
 

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15TH 1984

Message for the parish:
Dear children! You are a chosen people and God has given you great graces. You do not realize the importance of every message lam giving you. Now I only wish to say: Pray, pray, pray! I do not know what else to tell you because I love you and wish that in prayer you come to know my love and the love of God.
 

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17TH 1984

To Jelena:
Pray. Do not ask yourself about the reason why I constantly invite you to prayer. Intensify your personal prayer so that it will become a channel for the others. (BN 18, 30).
 

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 22ND 1984

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children! These days, live all of my messages and continue to root them in your hearts this week.
 

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29TH 1984

Message for the parish:
Dear children! You do not yet know how to love, nor do you listen with love to the words I am giving you. Be assured, my beloved ones, that I am your Mother, and that I have come on earth to teach you how to listen with love, how to pray with love, and not be compelled by the cross you are carrying. Through the cross, God is glorified in every person.
 

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 6TH 1984

Message for the parish:
Dear children! These days, I am calling you to family prayer. Many times, I have given you messages in God's name, but you have not listened. This Christmas will be an unforgettable day for you, provided you accept the messages I am giving you. Dear children, do not allow that day of joy, to be a day of deepest sorrow for me.
 

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13TH 1984

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children! You know that the day of joy is coming near, but without love you will obtain nothing. Therefore, first of all start loving your family and everyone in the parish. Then you will be able to love and accept all those who will come here. Let this week be the week of learning how to love.
This Christmas will be unforgettable if you follow me. Disconnect your television sets and your radios, and begin God's programs; meditation, prayer, reading of the Gospel. Prepare yourselves with faith; then you will have understood love, your life will be filled with happiness.
(BN 18, 31).
 

MONDAY, DECEMBER 17TH 1984

Message conveyed by the seers to Monsignor Franic, Archbishop of Split, during a retreat which he is making at Medjugorje:
You will have to suffer more. (DN 3, 18).
 

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 20TH 1984

To Jelena:
Today I am asking you to do something concrete for Jesus Christ. On the day of joy, I would like every family of the parish to bring a flower as a sign of self offering to Jesus. I would like every member of the family to have a flower next to the crib, so that Jesus can come and see your offering of self to Him. (VB 2,16).
To Maria, for the parish:
Today I invite you to show a concrete gesture for Jesus Christ, I wish that each family in the parish bring each day a flower, as a sign of surrender to Jesus until Christmas which is approaching. Have each member of the family place a flower near the manger; and Jesus, at the time of his ar rival, will see your love for Him there.
On December 24th the parishioners carried their flowers near the manger. The whole sanctuary was converted into a flower bed in blossom.
 

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 21ST 1984

Dear children! I would like for all of you to be like a flower, which is going to open at Christmas for Jesus; a flower which does not cease to blossom after Christmas. Be the good shepherds of Jesus. (Bl. 298).

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 29TH 1984

To Jelena, the anniversary day of her first apparition.
Today is the feast of the Mother of goodness, of mercy, and of love.
"And she gave us her blessing saying:"
Up until now I have not given it to you.
"And the group felt strongly changed because of it."
She motivated them to receive this blessing:
Receive it, do not neglect it as before. I can give you my blessing, but I cannot give it to you if you do not want it. (T. Vlasic, Mar. 2, 1985, VB 2,381).

To Jelena:
I wish that a great love, a great peace would flourish in you. Thus, pray. (Bl. 257).

I am very happy to have been able to come here for three years, thanks to the prayers of believers. Continue to pray thusly. A part of my plan has been realized. God blesses in a special way, all those who are here. You can return happily to your homes. You do not immediately understand the reasons. Offer your prayers of thanksgiving for next week.
(T, 47).

THURSDAY, JANUARY 10TH 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children! Today I want to thank you for all your sacrifices. I thank especially those who come here gladly, and have become dear to my heart. There are parishioners who do not listen to my messages; but because of those who are especially close to my heart, I give messages to the parish. And I will continue giving them, for I love you and want you to spread them with love.
 

THURSDAY, JANUARY 17TH 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
In these days, Satan is fighting deviously against this parish, and you, dear children, have fallen asleep in (regard to) prayer. Only some of you are going to Mass. Persevere in these days of temptation.
 

THURSDAY, JANUARY 24TH 1985

To Maria. for the parish:
Dear children! These days you have savored the sweetness of God through the renewal in your parish. Satan plans to work even more energetically to take the joy away from each of you. Through prayer, you can totally disarm him and ensure your happiness.
 

THURSDAY, JANUARY 31ST 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children! Today I want to ask you to open your hearts to God, just like the flowers in the spring that yearn for the sun. I am your Mother and I would like you to be ever closer to the Father, so that he pour gifts into your hearts abundantly.
 

JANUARY - FEBRUARY 1985

To Vicka, at the time of a prayer meeting on the mountain:
My dear children, Satan is strong. He wishes, with all his strength, to destroy my plans. Pray only, and do not stop doing it. I will also pray to my Son, so that all the plans that I have begun will be realized.
Be patient and persevere in prayer. Do not permit Satan to take away your courage. He works very hard in the world. Be on your guard.
(DN 3,26).
 

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 3RD 1985

I wish for Father Slavko to stay here, for him to guide the life and to assemble all the news, so that when I leave there will be a complete image of everything that has happened here. I am also praying now for Slavko and for all those who work in this parish. (DN3, 25-26).
 

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 7TH 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children! Satan is manifesting himself in this parish in a particular way these days. Pray, dear children, that Gods plan be carried out, and that every work of Satan be turned to the glory of God. I have remained this long to help you in your great trials.
 

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14TH 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children! Today is the day when I give you the message for the parish, but not everyone in the parish accepts my messages and lives them. I am sad and I want you, dear children, to listen to me and to live my messages. Every family must pray and read the Bible.
 

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 17TH 1985

Pray, dear children, so that God's plan may be accomplished, and all the works of Satan be changed in favor of the glory of God. (F 2, 158).
 

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20TH 1985 (Ash Wednesday)

To Jelena:
I give you an advice; I would like for you to try to conquer some fault each day. If your fault is to get angry at everything, try each day, to get angry less. If your fault is not to be able to study, try to study. If your fault is not to be able to obey, or if you cannot stand those who do not please you, try on a given day, to speak with them. If your fault is not to be able to stand a proud person, you should try to approach that person. If you desire that person to be humble, be humble yourselves. Show that humility is worth more than pride.
Thus, each day, try to go beyond, and to reject every vice from your heart. Find out which are the vices that you most need to reject. During this Lent, you should try and truly desire to spend it in love. Strive as much as possible.
(DN 4bis, 68).
 

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21ST 1985

A message to the parish:
Day after day I have been appealing to you for renewal and prayer in the parish. But you are not responding. Today I am appealing to you for the last time. This is the season of Lent, and you, as a parish in Lent, should be moved through love of my appeal to take the first step. If you do not take this step, I do not want to give you any more messages. God will allow me not to give you any more.
 

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 25TH 1985

To Jelena:
Know that I love you. Know that you are mine. I do not wish to do anything more for anyone, that I do not wish to do for you. Come all of you to me. Remain with me and I will be your Mother always. Come, because I wish to have all of you. (Bl. 261).
To Maria:
For next week, I invite you to say these words: 'I love God in everything.' With love, one obtains everything. You can receive many things, even the most impossible. The Lord wishes for all the parishes to surrender to Him, and I too, in Him. I desire it. Each evening, make your examination of conscience, but only to give thanks in acknowledgment for everything that His love offers us at Medjugorje. (DN 3, 301).
 

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28TH 1985

Message to the parish:
Today I call you to live these words during this week: 'I love God.' Dear children, with love, you can achieve everything, even what appears impossible. God wants this parish to belong to Him completely. And I wish that too.

FEBRUARY - MARCH 1985

Dear children! You have always prayed that I not abandon you. Now I ask of you, in turn, not to abandon me. Satan wants especially during these days to disperse you. For that, pray very much these days.
Dear children, I came again to thank you. You have not yet understood what that means. To give joy to my heart. It is a very great thing. I ask you only to persevere in prayer. As long as you pray I will have words for you. Good-bye, I thank you dear children. My love for you is unlimited; be happy with me, because I am happy with you.
(DN 4 bis, 68).

SATURDAY, MARCH 9TH 1985

You can receive a grace immediately, or in a month, or in ten years. I do not need a hundred or two hundred 'Our Fathers.' It is better to pray only one, but with a desire to encounter God. You should do everything out of love. Accept all annoyances, all difficulties, everything, with love. Dedi cate yourselves to love. (BN 19, 30).
 

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13TH 1985

Message addressed to Vicka, at a time when a mistake by Ivan, who was frightened, caused a stir. (Described in detail in DN 4, p. 17-23).
Pray, pray, pray! It is only with prayer that you will be able to avoid Ivan's error. He should not have written. And after that had to clearly acknowledge it, so as not to plant any doubts.
 

THURSDAY, MARCH 14TH 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children! In your life, you have all experienced light and darkness. God gives every person the power to recognize good and evil. lam calling you to light, which you must carry to all those who are in darkness. From day to day, people who are in darkness come into your houses. You, dear children, give them light.
 

MONDAY, MARCH 18TH 1985

To Mirjana:
The rosary is not an ornament for the home, as one often times limits himself to using it. Tell everyone to pray it. (DN 4bis, 421).
Right now, many are greatly seeking money, not only in the parish, but in the whole world. Woe to those who seek to take everything from those who come, and blessed are those from whom they take everything. (This relates to the exploitation of some pilgrims.)
(DN 4 bis, 26).
May the priests help you because I have entrusted to you a heavy burden, and I suffer from your difficulties. Ivan did not make a big mistake. I have sufficiently reprimanded him for the error. It is not necessary to scold him anymore.
(Bl 111).
 

THURSDAY, MARCH 21ST 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children! I want to give you the messages. Therefore I ask you to accept these messages. Dear children, I love you. In a special way I have chosen this parish which is more dear to me than any of the others to which I gladly came when the Almighty sent me. Therefore, dear children, I ask you to accept me for your well-being. Live the messages.

 

SUNDAY, MARCH 24TH 1985 (vigil of the Annunciation)

Today I invite all of you to Confession, even if you have already gone to Confession during the last days. I wish that you would live my feast in your hearts. You are not able to, if you do not abandon yourselves completely to the Lord. It is for this reason that I call all of you to reconciliation with
the Lord.
(DN. 4 bis, 64).

Message to the parish:
Dear children! Today, I am asking you to pray, pray, pray. In prayer you will experience great joy and the solution to every hopeless situation. Thank you for making progress in prayer. Each one of you belongs to my heart. I am grateful to all of you who have begun praying in your families.
To Jelena:
You all know the flowers. A flower must blossom and each part of the flower is very important. But there is a moment when the flower must wilt so that the seed can ripen, and after, when the seed is ripe, other flowers will come.
Jelena did not know how to explain this parable. But Tomislav Vlasic explained: One finds in it the whole liturgy of this evening (Saturday, vigil of Palm Sunday); one must die in order to be able to rise again. We say sometimes that it is sad that a flower must wilt. But, if it does not wilt, it is not able to ripen the seed from where the other flowers come. If it does not die, life can not multiply itself. (S. Barbaric, April 6, 1985, VB. 2, 801).
 

THURSDAY, APRIL 4TH 1985 (Holy Thursday)

Message to the parish:
Dear children! I am thankful that you have begun to reassure more highly in your hearts the glory of God. Today is the day that I wanted to stop giving messages because certain people do not accept them. The parish has responded and I wish to continue to give messages to a degree, such as has never before been witnessed in the world, since the beginning of history. Try to remain in my heart. Do not remain on the side. (T. Vlasic, April 29, 1985; VB 2, 135).
 

FRIDAY, APRIL 5TH 1985

You, the members of this parish, have a large and heavy cross to bear. But do not be afraid to carry it. My Son is here to help you. (DN 4 bis, 65).

THURSDAY, APRIL 25TH 1985

FRIDAY, MAY 3RD 1985

To Jelena:
Sometimes prayers said in a loud voice keep Jesus at a distance, because when men want to conquer with their own power there is no place for God. Prayers said in a loud voice are good when they come from the heart. (BN. 19, 33)
 

TUESDAY, MAY 7TH 1985

Ivanka has a vision at home, which lasts about an hour:
"the Blessed Virgin was more beautiful than ever and was accompanied by two angels. She asks me what I wished. I prayed to her to let me see my mother. The Blessed Virgin smiled and approved with a nod. My mother appeared to me very soon. She was smiling. Our Lady told me to stand up. My mother embraced me then as she said 'My child, I am so proud of you.' She embraced me again and disappeared. Our Lady said to me then:"

"Dear Gospa, may I embrace you?"
"The blessed Virgin gives an affirmative sign with her head. I then embraced her. I asked her to bless me. She did it with a smile and added:"
Go in the peace of God.
Then she left slowly with the two angels. (F 2, 150-152 and VB 3. 149)
 

THURSDAY, MAY 9TH 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children! You do not know how many graces God is bestowing upon you. You are not willing to get moving in these days when the Holy Spirit is working in a special way; you do not want to advance. Your hearts are turned to earthly things and you are preoccupied by them. Turn your hearts to prayer and ask that the Holy Spirit be poured upon you.
 

THURSDAY, MAY 16TH 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children! I am calling you to more attentive prayer and to greater participation in the Mass. I want you to experience God within yourselves at Mass.

SATURDAY, JUNE 1 1985

To Jelena:

THURSDAY, JUNE 6TH 1985

THURSDAY, JUNE 13TH 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children: I am begging you, the people of this parish, to pray more until the anniversary of the apparitions. (June 25th). May your prayer be an act of devotion and commitment to God.

SATURDAY, JUNE 22ND 1985

Jelena: The Gospa dictated to me (perhaps, it would be better to say, inspired) this prayer and advised me to recite it in our prayer group:

Likewise dictated (inspired) to Jelena, with this clause: "Here is the most beautiful prayer that you could recite for a sick person."

Before this prayer and the preceding one, recite three times the "Glory Be."
 

TUESDAY, JUNE 25TH 1985

On this anniversary day of the first apparition on the hill, Maria asks:
"What do you wish from the priests?"
I urge you to ask everyone to pray the rosary. With the rosary you will overcome all the troubles which Satan is trying to inflict on the Catholic Church. Let all priests pray the rosary. Give time to the rosary. (F 2, 118).
To Jelena:
A heart which belongs to the Lord is splendid, even if it is flooded with difficulties and trials. But if the heart engaged in difficulties, strays away from God, it loses its splendor.
(BN 19,34).
 

THURSDAY, JUNE 27TH 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
Today I invite you to humility. These days all of you have felt a great joy because of all the people who came here, and to whom you spoke with love about your experience. With humility and an opening of the heart, continue to speak with all those who come.
 

JUNE - 1985

THURSDAY, AUGUST 1ST 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children! I wish to tell you that I have chosen this parish. I guard it in my hands like a little flower that does not want to die. I beg you to give yourselves to me so that I can offer you as a gift to God, fresh and without sin. Satan has undertaken one part of my plan and wants to possess
it. Pray that he does not succeed because I desire to have you for myself so that I can offer you to God.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20TH 1985 (instead of Thursday, 19th)

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children! Today I am calling you to live in humility all the messages I give you. Dear children, when you live the messages do not glorify yourselves by saying: I live the messages. If you carry the messages in your heart and live them everyone will notice it. So, there is no need for words which serve only those who do not wish to hear. For you it is not necessary to speak. For you, my dear children, it is necessary to live and witness by your lives. (DN 4 bis, 67).

1 invite you one more time to live the messages in the parish. I invite the young people of this parish particularly, to do it.

You are a mirror for others.
 

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 17TH 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
There is a time for each thing. Today, I invite you to begin to work on your hearts. At present, all the work in the fields has ended. You find the time to clean the most neglected places, but you set your hearts aside. Work more now, with love, to clean each of the recesses of your heart.

Mirjana: "When she appeared, the Blessed Virgin greeted me, 'Praised be Jesus.' Then she spoke of unbelievers;"
They are my children. I suffer because of them. They do not know what awaits them. You must pray more for them.
"We prayed with her for the weak, the unfortunate, the foresaken. After the prayer, she blessed us. Then she showed me, as in a film, the realization of the first secret. The earth was desolate.
It is the upheaval of a region of the world. "She was precise. I cried."
"Why so soon," I asked?
In the world, there are so many sins. What can I do, if you do not help me. Remember, that I love you.
"How can God have such a hard heart?"

God does not have a hard heart. Look around you and see what men do, then you will no longer say that God has a hard heart.
How many people come to church, to the house of God, with respect, a strong faith, and love of God? Very few! Here you have a time of grace and conversion. It is necessary to use it well.
(DN 5, 39).
To Mirjana:
Pray very much for Father Pero, to whom I send a special blessing. I am a mother, that is why I come. You must not fear for I am there.
Father Pero Ljubicic had been chosen by Mirjana, to unveil to the world, the first three warnings, three days before the event. (DN 5, 40).
 

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31ST 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children, today I love all of you with the same love, and I wish that each one would do all that is possible, according to his own capacity. Dear children, you can do it, I know.

Message to the prayer group:

I am anxious to tell you that it is a special time for you and for the parish. During the summer, you say that you have to work very much. At this time, there is no work in the fields. Thus, I invite you to work on yourselves. Come to mass; the time is being provided for you.
Dear children, there are many who come; in spite of the bad weather, because they love me, and want to prove their love to me. I ask all of you to prove your love to me by coming to mass. The Lord will reward you generously for it.
 

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 28TH 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
I wish to thank all of you for everything you have done for me, especially the young people. I ask you dear children, enter conscientiously into prayer; because it is in prayer, that you will know Gods designs.
 

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4TH 1985

Gianni Sgreva, an Italian Passionist, was inspired to found a "Community of Consecrated" on the message of Medjugorje, and seeking discernment, submitted his case of conscience to Maria, who questioned the Gospa.
I prefer to answer him personally.

It seems that the message was positive, because the community opened May, 18th, 1987, at Priabona in Italy. (There follows another message, which one will find later: June 7, 1986, Archives Sgreval.)
 

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5TH 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
I wish io invite you to prepare yourselves for the feast of Christmas; through prayer; penance; and acts of love. Do not worry so much, dear children, about material things, because in this manner, you will not be able to live the feast of Christmas.
 

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7TH 1985

To Maria, for the parish:

Dear children; on that day, pray more, and think more of Jesus.
 

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 19TH 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
I invite you to love your neighbor. If you love your neighbor, you will feel more the presence of Jesus, especially on Christmas day. God will fill you with great gifts, if you abandon yourselves to Him. On Christmas Day, I will give a special blessing to all the mothers, my maternal blessing. And Jesus will grant His blessing to everyone.
 

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 26TH 1985

To Maria, for the parish:
I thank all of you who have listened to my messages, and who have lived, on Christmas Day, what I had told you previously. Beginning now, you are purified of your sins, and I would like to continue to guide you in the love of your heart.
 

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 31ST 1985

To Jelena, during the eve of December 31st:
Next year is the year of peace; not because men have named it so, but because God has programmed it. You will not have peace through the presidents, but through prayer.
Through one of the little seers of the group, during this same vigil, Jesus said:
When you hear the clocks at midnight, you will fall on your knees, bow your head to the ground, so that the King of Peace will come. This year, I will offer my peace to the world. But afterwards, I will ask you where you were when I offered you my peace.
(These two messages were reported by T. Vlasic, February, 6th, 1986. VB 4, 34).

THURSDAY, JANUARY 16TH 1986

Message to the parish:
Today, I still invite you to prayer. I need your prayers so that God may be glor fled through all of you. Dear children, I beg of you: Listen to my maternal call, and live it. If I invite you to it, it is only out of love, and in order to be able to help you.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 23RD 1986

Message to the parish:
I invite you, again, to prayer of the heart. If you pray with the heart, dear children, the eyes of your brothers will melt, and every barrier will disappear. Conversion will be easy for all those who want to receive it. It is a gift which you must implore for your neighbor.
 

THURSDAY, JANUARY 30TH 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
I invite all of you to pray, so that all of Gods designs on you, may be realized, and all that God pursues through you. Help all the others to be converted, especially all those who come to Medjugorje. Dear children, do not permit Satan to become the master of your heart, because in that case, you will become the image of Satan, and not mine.
I invite you to pray, in order to become witnesses of my presence. Without you, the Lord cannot realize what He wishes.
The Lord has given each one a free will, and you can dispose of it.
 

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 6TH 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
This parish, which I have chosen, is a special parish which distinguishes itself from others. I offer some special graces to all those who pray with the heart. Dear children, I give these messages first to the parishioners, and then to all the others. You will be responsible for these messages before my Son, Jesus, and me.
 

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13TH 1986

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20TH 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
Here is my second message for Lent. Renew your prayer before the cross. Dear children, I offer you special graces and Jesus, the extraordinary merits of the cross. Accept them, and live them. Meditate on the passion of Jesus. Unite your life to Jesus.

At the end of the meeting of the prayer group, before the blessing:
Dear children, you will be able to receive Divine love, only in proportion to when you understand that, on the cross, God offers you His immense love.

THURSDAY, MARCH 20TH 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
Today, I invite you to actively enter into prayer. You wish to live all that I tell you, but, you are not successful in it because you do not pray enough. Dear children, I beseech you, open yourselves and begin to pray. Prayer will be a joy for you. If you begin, you will not be uncomfortable, because you will pray in joy
 

MONDAY, MARCH 24TH 1986

To the prayer group:
Dear children, receive all that the Lord offers you. Do not have your hands paralyzed and do not repeat: 'Jesus, give me.' But open your hands, and take everything that the Lord offers you. (T. Vlasic, April 27, 86, VB 4, 64).
 

THURSDAY, MARCH 27TH 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
Thank you for all the sacrifices , but I invite you to a greater sacrifice: the sacrifice of love. Without love, you cannot receive neither my Son, nor me. Without love, you are not able to convey to others, your experience. For that, I invite you dear children, to begin to live love in your hearts.
 

THURSDAY, APRIL 3RD 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children, I am calling you to live the holy Mass. There are many of you who have experienced the beauty of the Mass, but there are others who go unwillingly. I have chosen you, dear children, and Jesus is giving you His graces in the holy Mass. Let everyone who comes to Mass be joyful. Come with love and rejoice in the holy Mass.
 

THURSDAY, APRIL 10TH 1986

To Maria, for the parish:

THURSDAY, APRIL 17TH 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children, you are preoccupied with material things, and you lose, thus, everything that God wants to give you. Pray then, dear children, for the gifts of the Holy Spirit. They are necessary for you, in order that you may give witness to my presence here, and to everything that I give you.
Dear children, abandon yourselves to me so that I can guide you fully. Do not worry so much about material things.
 

THURSDAY, APRIL 24TH 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children , today I invite you to prayer. You have forgotten that you are all important, especially the elderly in the families. Invite them to pray. Let all the young people, by their lives, be an example for others. Let them be witnesses for Jesus.
Dear children, I beseech you to begin to convert yourselves through prayer, then you will know what you must do.
 

THURSDAY, MAY 1ST 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
Begin to change your lives in your families. Let your family be a harmonious flower, which I can offer to Jesus. Dear children, let each family be active in prayer. It is my wish that one day, one will be aware of the fruits of prayer in the family. It is only thus, that I will offer you all, as petals to Jesus in fulfillment of God's plan.
 

THURSDAY, MAY 8TH 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children, you are responsible for the messages that I give here. Here one finds the fountain of grace, and you are the vessels which convey these gifts. That is why I invite you, dear children, to carry out this work, which is yours, with responsibility. Each one in the measure of his ability. Dear children, I invite you to carry these gifts to others with love. Do not keep them for yourselves.
 

THURSDAY, MAY 15TH 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children, today I invite you to offer to me your hearts so that I can convert them, and make them similar to mine. You ask yourselves why you are not able to satisfy my requests? You are not able to because you have not entrusted your hearts to me, so that I can change them. You say, but you do not do it. Do then, everything that I tell you. Only in that way, can I be with you.
 

THURSDAY, MAY 22ND 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
Today I wish to give you my love. You do not realize, dear children, how great my love is, and you do not know how to receive it. I wish to manifest it to you in many ways dear children , but you do not recognize it. You do not understand my words with your hearts, and because of that you do not understand my love.
Dear children, accept me in your life. Thus, you will be able to accept everything that I tell you , and everything to which I invite you.
 

THURSDAY, MAY 29TH 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children, live the love of God, and toward your neighbor. I invite you to it. Without love, dear children, you are not able to do anything. That is why I invite you to live a mutual love. Only in that way will you be able to love, and to receive me, and all those who are around you and come to your parish. Everyone will feel my love through you. Thus, I beg you to start, as of today, to love with a burning love, the love with which I love you.
 

THURSDAY, JUNE 6TH 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children! I invite you to decide whether or not you want to live the messages which I give you. I wish that you live and actively convey my messages to others.
In a very particular way, dear children, I wish that all of you become a reflection of Jesus, and bear witness to this unfaithful world. I desire that you become a light to all, that all of you will testify to the light.
Dear children, you are not called to darkness, but to light. So be a light, by the way you live your life.
 

JUNE 7TH 1986 (First Friday of the month)

Fr. Pere Gianni Sgreva, who wanted to found a new community on the messages of Medjugorje, had questioned Maria on June 6th. On the 7th of June she tells him:
"This is what the Gospa answered."
Yes, one must pray. What you are doing pleases me. For the time being, keep a very active prayer life, and God will then light up the other plans.
"Since the Gospa said that, we are sure that the road is a good one. She was happy when I asked her about it."
The community which opened in 1987, in Italy, is prospering so well, that before the end of the year, it had to move, since the large house at Priabona had become too small.
 

THURSDAY, JUNE 12TH 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children! Today I invite you to begin to pray the rosary with a living faith. Only in that way will I be able to help you. You wish to receive graces, but you do not pray. I am not able to help you if you do not decide to begin.
I invite you, dear children, to pray the rosary in such a way that it will be a commitment for you, achieved in joy. In this way, you will understand the reason for which I have been with you, for such a long time. I want to teach you to pray
 

THURSDAY, JUNE 19TH 1986

Message for the parish:
These days, Our Lord has permitted me to intercede more for you. I invite you then, to again, pray. Pray without ceasing. In this way, I can give you the joy which Our Lord gives me.

To the prayer group:
I beseech you, withdraw in silence. Your obligation is not so much to do, but to adore God, to stay with Him. (T. Vlasic,26 June 86 VB 4, 115).
 

THURSDAY, JUNE 26TH 1986

THURSDAY, JULY 3RD 1986

To Maria, for the parish:

Dear children, I desire to lead you day after day, as much as possible toward prayer, but you cannot grow, if you do not wish to. I exhort you, dear children, let prayer have the first place.

THURSDAY, JULY 24TH 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
What joy you give me; you are on the road to holiness. I beg you, help by your witness, all those who do not know how to live in holiness. That is why your family must be the place where holiness is born. Help everyone to live in holiness, especially the members of your own family.
 

THURSDAY, JULY 31ST 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
Hatred gives rise to division and blinds one to everything and everybody. I invite you to spread harmony and peace, more specially, there where you live.

To Maria, for the parish:
Again today, I invite you to prayer and fasting. Be assured, dear children, that with your help, I can do everything and prevent Satan from leading you into sin, and to force him to leave this place.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 25TH 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
I invite you to help others through your peace, so that they see it, and begin to look for peace within themselves. Because you are in peace, dear children, you cannot understand the absence of it. That is why I invite you to help through your prayers and your life, to destroy every evil among men, and to unmask Satan 's deceptions. Pray, so that truth may prevail in your hearts.
 

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2ND 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
Even today, I invite you to pray. You do not realize, dear children, the value of prayer, so you do not tell yourselves:
'Now is the time for prayer; nothing is more important to me. No one is more important for me than God.
'
Dear children, dedicate yourselves to prayer with a special love. In this way, God will be able to give you His graces. Thank you for your response to my call.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 6TH 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children, today I invite you to pray everyday for the souls in Purgatory. Every soul needs prayer and grace in order to reach God and His love.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 27TH 1986

To Maria, for the parish:
Dear children, today I invite you again, to dedicate your life to me with love, so that I may be able to guide it lovingly.

To Maria, for the parish:

That is why dear children, pray and open your life to the Lord, so that He may make of you a beautiful and harmonious flower for paradise.
 

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 25TH 1986

Dear Children, I wish that you would understand that God has chosen each one of you to have a part in the great plan for the salvation of mankind. You cannot fully understand how great your role is in God's design. For that reason, pray, dear children, so that through prayer, you may be able to know your role in God's plan. I am with you, so that you may be able to realize it fully.
Beginning January 25th, the messages are now monthly, each 25th of the month, monthly anniversary date of the first apparition. As in the case of the Thursday messages, we do not give any reference. These messages have been transmitted by benevolent organizations to the whole world.

Dear children! Today I once again invite all of you to pray. You know that God grants special graces through prayer. Therefore, dear children, try to pray so that you will be able to understand all that I give you here.
I invite you, dear children, to prayer of the heart. You know that without prayer you cannot comprehend all that God has planned through each one of you. So Pray! It is my wish that God's plan be fulfilled in and through each of you, and that all He has placed in your hearts will increase. Pray that God 's blessing may protect you from all the evil that threatens you. I give you my blessing.
 

MONDAY, MAY 25TH 1987

Message to the parish:
I call on each of you to begin to live in God 's love. Dear children, you are ready to commit sin, and to place yourselves in Satan 's hands without reflection. I call you so each of you will decide knowingly for God, and against Satan. I am your mother, and I desire to lead all of you to complete holiness. I wish for each of you to be happy on earth and then to be with me in Heaven. This, dear children, is my purpose in coming here, and my desire. Thank you for having responded to my call.
 

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 24TH 1987

Sixth anniversary of the prelude to the apparitions:
Maria invited the pilgrims to climb Krizevac at 11:30 at night. A crowd of thousands of people climbed the rocky foot path, without accident, (One wonders how!). After reciting the rosary, toward midnight, Maria confided in those who surrounded her.
"The Blessed Virgin was joyful. First of all, she prayed over all of us. We asked her to bless us. She did. Then she gave us, in substance, this message:"
Dear children! I want to lead you on the road to conversion. I desire that you convert the world and that your life be a conversion for others. Do not full into infidelity. Let each one of you be completely submitted to my will and to the will of God. Beginning this day, I give you special graces, and in particular the gift of conversion. Let each one of you take home my blessing, and motivate the others to a real conversion.
"Through her," Maria concluded, "God gives us this gift this evening. Before leaving us, Our Lady prayed again over all of us for a moment. We prayed with her for all our needs, for all your needs, for each of you here present. Finally the Blessed Virgin said:"
Go in the peace of God! (Transcribed the same day at Medjugorje.)
 

THURSDAY, JUNE 25TH 1987

Message to the parish:
Dear children! Today I thank you all, and wish to call all of you to the peace of God. I wish that each one of you may know, in his heart, this peace which God gives. Today, I bless all of you. I bless you with God's blessing, and ask you, dear children, to follow and to live my way.
I love you all, dear children. That is why I have called you so many times. I thank you for all that you have done according to my intentions. Please help me, so that I may be able to present you to God, and guide you on the path to salvation. Thank you for having responded to my call.
 

SATURDAY, JULY 25TH 1987

Message to the parish:
Dear children! I beseech you from this day on, take up the way of holiness. I love you and therefore, I wish you to be holy. Do not let Satan block you on the way. Dear children, pray and accept all that God is offering you on this way which is bitter, but to whomever is engaged in it, God reveals joy and the sweetness to respond in good heart, to His calls. Do not measure the importance of little things, but long for Heaven and holiness.
 

TUESDAY, AUGUST 25TH 1987

Message to the parish:
Dear children! Today also I call upon you again to decide to live the messages. God has permitted me, in this year which the Church has dedicated to me, to be able to speak to you and to encourage you on the way to holiness.
Dear children, ask God for the graces which He wants to give you through me. I am ready to intercede with God for all that you ask, so that your holiness may be complete. There fore, dear children, do not forget to ask, because God has permitted me to obtain graces for you.
 

CHAPTER 5

The Apparitions, Forbidden in the Rectory
In Search of A Discreet Place

A solution: The choir loft in the church, without eyewitnesses, starting the beginning of September, 1987.


FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25TH 1987

Message to the parish:
Dear children! Today, I wish to invite all of you to prayer. Let prayer be LIFE for you. Dear children, devote your time to Jesus only, and He will give you everything that you search for. He will reveal Himself to you completely.
Dear children, Satan is strong, and he watches over each of you in order to tempt you. Pray, and this way he will not be able to harm you nor to block your way on the road to holiness. Dear children, make progress as much as possible, toward God and in prayer, from day to day. Thank you for having responded to my call.
 

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25TH 1987

Message to the parish:
Today I invite all of you to decide for paradise. The way is difficult for those who have not decided for God. Dear children, decide and believe. God offers Himself to you in His fullness. You are called and you need to respond to the call of the Father, who is calling you, through me. Pray, because in prayer, each one of you will be able to achieve perfect love. I am blessing you and I want to help each one of you, so that you will be under my motherly mantle.
 

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25TH 1987

Message to the parish:
Even today again, I invite you. May each of you decide to abandon yourself completely to me. Only thus, can I in turn, present each of you to God. Dear children, you know that I love you immeasurably, and I wish for each one of you to be mine. But God gives everyone freedom, which I lovingly respect, and to which I humbly submit.
Dear children, I wish that God's plan regarding this parish be realized. But, if you do not pray, you will not be able to recognize my love, nor God 's plan for this parish, and for each of you. Pray that Satan does not entice you with his pride and deceptive strength. I am with you and want you to believe that I love you.

 

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 25TH 1987

Message to the parish:
Rejoice with me. My heart is rejoicing because of Jesus, and it is He, whom I want to present to you today. Dear children, I want each one of you to open your heart to Jesus, and I will give Him to you with love. It is He who transforms you, teaches you and protects you.
Today I pray for each one of you in a special way, and I present you to God that He may manifest Himself to you.I invite you to sincere prayer with the heart. Let each one of your prayers be an encounter with God. In your work,and in your everyday life, put God in the first place. I ask you with great seriousness to obey me, I beseech you.

1988

JANUARY, 25TH 1988

Message to the parish:
Dear children, today I again am calling you to complete conversion, which is difficult for those who have not chosen God. I am inviting you, dear children, to convert fully to God. God can give you everything that you seek from Him. But you seek God only when sicknesses, 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 evermore near to God. I cannot, if you do not desire it. Therefore, dear children, put your life in God's hands. I bless you all. Thank you for responding to my call.
 

FEBRUARY 25TH 1988,

Message to the parish:
Dear children, I am calling you to prayer and complete surrender to God. You know that I love you and am coming here out of love, so I could show you the path of peace and salvation for your souls. I want you to obey me and not permit Satan to seduce you. Satan is very strong and therefore I wish 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 life for the salvation of the world. I am with you and am grateful to you, but in Heaven you shall receive the Father's reward, which He has promised to you.
Therefore, dear 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.
 

MARCH 25TH 1988,

Message to the parish:
Today, I invite you dear children, to complete surrender to God. You are not conscious of how God loves you with such a great love. He permits me to be with you so I can instruct you and help you to find the way of Peace. This way, however, you cannot discover if you do not pray. Dear children, forsake everything to 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 a 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 yourself, but for others, and for all eternity.
 

APRIL 25TH 1988

Message for the parish:
Dear children, God wants to make you holy. Through me, He is inviting you to complete surrender. Let Holy Mass be your life. Understand that the Church is God's palace, the place in which I gather you and want to show you the way to God. Come and pray! Neither look at others, nor slander them. 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.
Little children, believe and pray that the Father will in crease your faith; then you can ask for whatever you need. I am with you and I am rejoicing because of your conversion; and I am protecting you with my motherly mantle. Thank you for your response to my call.

CHAPTER 6

Messages Undated or Approximated

Gathered by different authors


We give in an appendix, the messages which have been gathered by authors, who had made inquiry into the messages of Medjugorje. These messages, which they generally did not date, (nor give the means for dating) are presented in a chronological order, per each book. This provides a "date limit." As an exception, we group at the end, the four volumes of homilies of Father T. Vlasic and Father Slavko Barbaric, which are remarkable for the quality of their information.

APOCALYPTIC MESSAGES

Received by Mirjana before December 26, 1982, confided on November 5, 1983 to Tomislav Vlasic, who conveyed them to the Pope on December 16, 1983.
In his letter of December 16, 1983, to the Pope, and published in "Is The Virgin Mary Appearing at Medjugorje?" (Paris, 1984), Tomislav Vlasic reports some revelations received by Mirjana in 1982, and confided to him November 5, 1983, with this significant 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 November5, 1983. I summarized the essentials of her account, without literal quotation. Mirjana told me:"

"In addition to this basic message, Mirjana related an apparition she had in 1982 which we believe sheds some light on some 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 arrived and Satan disappeared. Then the Blessed Virgin gave her the following message, in substance:"

KRALJEVIC (1983)

The Virgin tells the children:
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. (K.56).

Messages approximately grouped on Ecumenism (see annex#2):
In God differences do not exist among his people; religion need not separate people. Every person must be respected, despite his or her particular profession of faith.
God presides over all religions, as a king controls his subjects, through his priests and ministers. The sole mediator of salvation is Jesus Christ.
Do differences exist among the believers of different churches? (A question asked in reference to a certain Protestant community.)
It is not equally efficacious to belong to or pray in any church or community, because the Holy Spirit grants his power differently among the churches and ministers. All believers do not pray the same way. It is intentional that all apparitions are under the auspices of the Catholic Church. (K.59).

To the seers:
When you will suffer difficulties, and need something, come to me. (
K.72).
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. (K.86, and F.1,45).
Faith cannot be alive without prayer. (K.86).
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. (K.86).

For a Priest who questions:
"Is it preferable to pray to you or to pray 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, I will pray, but everything does not depend solely on me. but also on your strength, and the strength of those who pray (K.87).

With respect to the souls in Purgatory:
These persons wait for your prayers and your sacrifices.(K.87).

The most beautiful prayer is the "Creed. " (K.94).
The most important thing, is to believe. (K.94).
All prayers are good, if they are said with faith. (K.95).
My Son wants to win all souls to Him, but the Devil strives to obtain something. The Devil makes a great effort to infiltrate among you, at all costs. (K.116).

JOURNAL OF JELENA

Questioned on the similarity between the signs announced at Medjugorje, and the third secret of Fatima, Jelena responds, "Toward these things the Gospa told us:
Do not fear anything. You must forget what is behind you in your life. I only want that from now on, you be new people. Do not fear anything when I am near you. I love you.

Conversation with Fr. Bonifacio and Fr. Petar Ljubicic:
It does not suffice to pray. You must change your life, your heart. Love the others, have love for others. Love what you do and always think about Jesus and you will understand what is good, and what is bad. (ibid).

FATHER BUBALO (1981)

Vicka:'At the very beginning, the Gospa tells us:"
You may leave, but let little Jakov stay with me.
And Vicka adds: "Jakov is an extraordinary boy; the Gospa knew it." (Bu.52).

During the times of the first apparitions:
To Mirjana:
My Son struggles for each of you, but Satan fights Him also. He prowls around you, sets traps for you. He tries to divide you, you the seers, to plant discord among you; to confuse you so you will detest yourselves, and will abandon yourselves to him.

Vicka adds: "Our Lady has said it to us on several occasions." (Bu.71).

BOTTA-FRIGERIO (1984)

The world can only be saved through peace. But it will only have peace in its meeting with God. (Bo.75).
The world lives amidst very strong tensions. It is on the edge of catastrophe.
(Bo.75).
I have come here because there are many believers. I want to remain with you in order to convert many and to bring peace to everyone. Begin by loving your enemies. Do not judge, do not slander, and do not despise, but give only love. Bless your adversaries and pray for them.
I know well that you are not capable of doing it; I advise you to pray each day at least five minutes to the Sacred Heart, so that you can receive the gift of Divine Love, with which you will be able to love your enemies.
(Bo.75).
It is necessary to convert oneself to God, in order to obtain peace. Tell the whole world; tell it without delay, that I ardently wish conversion. Be converted, do not wait. I will ask my Son that He not chastise the world. Convert yourselves, renounce everything, and be ready for everything.

Do not go in search of extraordinary ways, take rather, the Gospel and read it. There, everything will be clear. (Bo.76).
You only learn to pray, through praying.
(Bo.76).
Offer your time to God and let yourself be guided by the Holy Spirit. Then, your work will go well and you will have free time. Those who abandon themselves to God, do not have place in their hearts for fear. The difficulties which you will face, will contribute to your growth and to the glory of the Lord. For that, reject fear.
(Bo.77).
Prayer always leads to peace and serenity. (Bo.78, cf Bl 298). No one is dispensed from fasting, except those who are gravely ill. Prayer and works of charity cannot replace fasting. I recommend to you in a special way, to attend Holy Mass every day
(Bo.79).
Mass represents the highest form of prayer. You must be humble and respectful during Holy Mass, and prepare yourself for it with care.
(Bo.79, cf Bl 238).
May the Holy Father announce with courage, peace and love to the world. May He not consider Himself the Father of Catholics, but of all mankind.
(Bo.80).

CASTELLA - LJUBIC (1984-85)

Reported by Mirjana:
Tell the faithful that I need their prayers, and prayers from all the people. It is necessary to pray as much as possible and do penance because very few people have been converted up until now There are many Christians who live like pagans. There are always so few, true believers.
(C.49, cf. Bl 213).

To the priest who asked what they should do:
Carry out well your responsibility, and do what the Church asks you to do. (C52).

One day the Gospa reproached Jakov for his behavior at school towards his friends:
You must love them all.
"I love them all. But they are so annoying to me."
Then accept it as a sacrifice, and offer it. (C.64).

A group of seminarians from Zagreb and Djakovo, attended an apparition.
Maria: "The Gospa looked at each one of us, and told us with a smile:"
Tell them, that with prayer, one obtains everything. (C.68).

The Blessed Virgin received a young nun with open arms, while she kept her hands joined before the others. Questioned by Mirjana, she said:
I will take with me very soon, all those to whom I extended my arms. (C.69).

To a nun who asked about her brother, who had died in an accident:
I understand the question, answered the Blessed Virgin. He died in the state of grace. He needs Masses and prayers. (C.70).

Asked by the seers why her choice had fallen upon them, the Blessed Virgin replied:
I do not choose the best. Are you angry with my choice, my angels? (C.75).

Mirjana reports to a religious, a close friend, this word from the Gospa:
The hour has come when the demon is authorized to act with all his force and power The present hour, is the hour of Satan. (C.99).
Many pretend to see Jesus and the Mother of God, and to understand their words, but they are, in fact, lying. It is a very grave sin, and it is necessary to pray very much for them.
(C.123).
lam anxious for people to know what is happening in Medjugorje. Speak about it, so that all will be converted.
(C. 134).

To Mirjana, who asks the Gospa on her insistence in saying, "It presses me to. . . :"
When you will be in Heaven, you will understand why I am so pressed. (C.214).

To the seers who ask regarding the apparitions and their purpose:
Is it, after all, that I bore you? Everything passes exactly according to God's plan. Have patience, persevere in prayer and in penance. Everything happens in its own time. (C.215).

On the matter of a Catholic priest, confused because of the cure of an Orthodox child:
Tell this priest, tell everyone, that it is you who is divided on earth. The Muslims and the Orthodox, for the same reason as Catholics, are equal before my Son and me. You are all my children. Certainly, all religions are not equal, but all men are equal before God, as St. Paul says. It does not suffice to belong to the Catholic Church to be saved, but it is necessary to respect the commandments of God in following one's conscience.
Those who are not Catholics, are no less creatures made in the image of God, and destined to rejoin someday, the House of the Father. Salvation is available to everyone, without exception. Only those who refuse God deliberately, are condemned. To him, who has been given little, little will be asked for. To whomever has been given much (to Catholics)
, very much will be required. It is God alone, in His infinite justice, Who determines the degree of responsibility and pronounces judgment. (C 128).

FR. ROBERT FARICY (1985)

On the subject of Christ:
I am His Mother, and I intercede for you, near to Him.(F2,134).

TUTTO (1985)

Let the faithful meditate each day on the life of Jesus, while praying the rosary. (T.43).
Every prayer, which comes from the heart, is agreeable to God. (T.58).
You do not celebrate the Eucharist, as you should. If you would know what grace, and what gifts you receive, you would prepare yourselves for it each day, for an hour at least. You should go to confession once a month. You should consecrate three days to reconciliation, each month: the first Friday of the month, followed by Saturday, and Sunday
The parish at Medjugorje had established an hour of adoration, before the Most Blessed Sacrament, the first Friday of the month. On the Saturday which followed, an hour of devotion before the cross, with prayers for sinners. And on Sunday, the Holy Mass was followed by a meal of reconciliation. (T.58).

BLAIS (1986)

I do not have the right to impose on anyone, what they should do. You have reason, and a will. You should, after having prayed, reflect and decide. (B1.37).
Receive the peace of my Son. Live it, and spread it. (Bl.90).
Permit Jesus to perform great works in you. The door of your heart, the lock is rusted. Permit Him to open it. May it be open through your prayer, your fasting, your conversion. (B1.143).
Pray slowly, and meditate while saying the prayers of the rosary. Take a quarter of an hour to recite: 5 Our Father's, Hail Mary 's, and Glory Be's. (Bl.173).
I love you so much. And if you love me, you will be able to feel it. I bless you in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, and in my name. Remain in peace. (Bl.183).
You will find everything in the Gospels. (Bl.244).
Let the word of God begin to speak in your heart. (Bl.245).
Begin to love your enemies. Do not judge or slander. Do not scorn. Do not curse. Only give your adversaries love. Bless them, and pray for them. I know that you are not capable of doing it, but I advise you to pray each day at least five minutes, to the Sacred Heart, so that He can give you Divine love, with which you will be able to love, even your enemies. (Bl.301). (Another version of the message previously shown in Botta.)
You can direct your prayers not only to those who are already in Heaven, but also to those who are in Purgatory, because with their prayer, they can help you to reach eternal happiness. (Bi .326).
One must follow the authority of the Church with certainty. Yet, before she expresses an opinion, it is necessary to advance spiritually, because she will not be able to express a judgment in a vacuum, but in a confirmation which presupposes growth of the child. First comes birth, followed by Baptism, then Confirmation. The Church comes to confirm him, who is born of God. We must walk and advance in the spiritual life, affected by these messages. (Bl.330).

MIRAVALLE (1986)

Before December, 1983:
So many believers never pray. Have the people pray! Faith cannot be alive without prayer. (M 8).
I am not able to cure you. God alone, can cure you. Pray! I will pray with you. Believe firmly, fast, do penance. God comes to help each one. I am not God. I need your prayers and your sacrifices to help me. (M 8).
You do not need a sign; you yourselves must be a sign. (M 9).
Peace is necessary for prayer. Peace should be present before prayer, and while one is praying. Prayer should, of course, lead to peace and reflection. (M 30).
Why ask so many questions? The answer is found in the Gospels. (M 31).

To Jelena:
The subject on the certainties of catastrophes comes from false prophets. They say, on such a day, at such an hour, there will be a catastrophe. I have always said: Punishment will come about, if the world is not converted. Call all mankind to conversion. Everything depends on your conversion. (M 31).
To Jelena:
When others cause you some difficulty, do not defend it, rather, pray (M 31).

To Jelena:
I desire that you be a flower, which blossoms for Jesus at Christmas. A flower which does not cease to bloom when Christmas has passed. I wish that you have a shepherd's, heart for Jesus. (M 31).
Dear children, when someone comes to you and asks you a favor, answer by giving. Ifind myself before so many hearts which do not open themselves to me. Pray, so that the world willingly wants to accept my love. (M 39).

Between June and December, 1984:
Dear children, the love of God has not spread over all the earth. That is why, pray! (M 40).
Dear children, I wish that the whole world become my children, but they do not want to. I want to give them all things. That is why, pray! (M 40).
Dear children, I love you so much. When you love me, you will be able to feel it. I bless you in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, and in my name. Go in peace. (M 40).

BOA NOVA

These are my last apparitions to mankind. With the events which are preparing themselves, and which are near, the power which Satan still holds, will be withdrawn from him. The present century has been under his power. Now that he is conscious of losing the battle, he is becoming more aggressive. He attacks the family, separates husband and wife. He creates divisions among the priests, and even gives himself to physical attacks. Protect yourselves, above all through prayer, through blessed sacred objects, through community prayer. (BN 20, 10).

LATEST NEWS (1987)

Love your Serbian, Orthodox and Muslim brothers, and the atheists who persecute you. (DN 2, 73). (Concerning information from Bishop Franic.
All your prayers touch me very much, especially your daily rosary. (DN 6, 15).

FR'S. TOMISLAV VLASIC AND SLAVKO BARBARIC (VB)

The weekly information given by Fr. Tomislav Vlasic and Fr. Slavko Barbaric, to Italian pilgrims, have been edited, in four volumes which we have designated through the abbreviations: VB 1, VB 2, VB 3, VB 4.
Here, we re-group the messages, which are not dated, in these four volumes. Each volume gives way to a "limit date"as follows. The first gives some communication from May 24 to December 29, 1984. The second, January 4 to June25, 1985; the third from July to December, 1985; and the fourth, from January 4, 1986, to January 8, 1987.

VB 1 (1984)

I've already said many times, that peace in the world is in a state of crisis. Become again, brothers to one another Pray and fast more, in order to be saved. (Sept. 1983, VB 1, 15).
Pray, fast, and let God act.
If you want to be very happy, lead a simple, humble life, pray very much, and do not sink into problems. Let God resolve them.
(message also in M 30).
Peace should follow your prayer.
Often
, prayer said in a loud voice keeps Jesus at a distance, because men want to conquer with their own strength. Then there is no more place for God. Prayers said in a loud voice are good, but they must come from peace in the heart.
Even joy and songs can hinder the rise of the groups, if the people deliver themselves only to emotion.
(T. Vlasic, May 24, 1984; collects these teachings as a rule of life, given by Our Lady, VB 133).
When I tell you, pray, pray, do not understand it only as an increase in quantity. What I want is to carry you to a profound continuous desire of God. (T. Vlasic, VB 1, 39).
The most important thing is to believe. That is, to open one's self to God; pray and fast. (T. Vlasic, June 1,1984, VB 1, 41).

Response from Our Lady to two questions from Tomislav Vlasic:
"Have you come to purify the new renewal movements, which are multiplying?"
It is exactly so.

"How could Jesus pray all night, without getting tired. What was His method?"
He had a great desire for God, and for the salvation of souls. Prayer is a dialogue with God, a meeting with the Gospel.

"What do you say about Oriental meditations?" (Zen, Transcendental meditation):
Why do you call them 'meditations,' when it deals with human works? The true meditation is a meeting with Jesus. When you discover joy, interior peace, you must know there is only one God, and only one Mediator, Jesus Christ. (VB 1, 45).
Your days will not be the same according to whether you pray, or you do not pray (VB 1 51).

Responses to questions asked by the seers at the request of Tomislav Vlasic:
What do you tell the priests and religious?
Be strong in faith and protect the faith of your people.
What do you advise us for advent?
Do what the Church tells you.
Do you want to give a sign for priests?
Have them take the Gospel and they will understand everything. (T. Vlasic, June 20, 1984. VB 1, 51).
Go to the heart. Words are not sufficient. Go to the heart. (VB 1, 52).

In the past autumn (1983), Our Lady said:
I would be happy for people, families, to pray a minimum of half-an-hour, in the morning and in the evening.
The people shook their heads at this, stated Fr. Vlasic.

But in the spring of 1984, Our Lady said:
I know that in the parish and in all the parishes, you can pray four hours a day, but you do not understand it yet because you live only for your work. One does not live from work alone, but also from prayer.
As I objected to her: "If one asks so much, people will go away." She replied:
Not even you understand. That makes hardly a sixth of your day (T. Vlasic, July 31, 1984. VB 1, 55).
You, do not think of wars, of evil, of chastisements. If you think about evil, you are on the road where one meets it. Your role is to accept Divine peace, to live it and spread it. (VB 1, 61).

To Jelena:
Christians make a mistake in considering the future because they think of wars and of evil. For a Christian, there is only one attitude toward the future. It is hope of salvation. (ibid).
Your responsibility is to accept Divine peace, to live, and to spread it not through words, but through your life. (Same communication of T. Vlasic Aug. 2, 1984. VB 1, 63).

To Jelena:
The only attitude of the Christian toward the future is hope of salvation. Those who think only of wars, evils, punishment, do not do well.
If you think of evil, punishment, wars, you are on the road to meeting them. Your responsibility is to accept Divine peace, live it and spread it.
(A more ample transmission of the word already cited in VB 1, 61. T. Vlasic, Aug. 12, 1984. VB 1, 81).
If you have not listened to my messages, the day of joy will become for me, a day of sadness. (S. Barbaric, Dec. 8, 1985. VB 1, 135).

VB 2 (1985)

To Ivan's prayer group:
Even the little things, entrust them to me. Consecrate them to my mission. (S. Barbaric, Mar. 2, 1985. VB 2, p.40).

To the question:
How does one behave before Satan?
Fervent prayer, humility, reciprocal love will prevent Satan from approaching you.

To a question conveyed through Tomislav Vlasic at the beginning of Lent, 1985:
What do you most wish for the fast?
The Gospa responds insisting on something else:
Honesty, love, humility and sincerity will lead you to me. (T. Vlasic, Mar. 9, 1985. VB 2, 45).

What should one do in the midst of so many discussions and publications on Medjugorje?
See! Now I am there, in each family, in each home. I am everywhere because I love. Do the same. The world lives from love.
After having repeated a song three times:
Excuse me for making you repeat, but I wish you to sing with the heart. You must really do everything with the heart.
And afterwards, (the seers continue, quoted by T. Vlasic) , she made us know this at the beginning of prayer:
One has to be already prepared. If there are some sins, one must pull them out, otherwise, one will not be able to enter into prayer. If one has concerns, he should submit them to God.
That same evening she said:
Take off your jackets. Here it is warm. Remember what Jesus said: Have faith. You must abandon yourselves to God. (All that in preparation for prayer.).
You must not preoccupy yourselves during prayer. During prayer, you must not be preoccupied with your sins. Sins must remain behind. (Words at the beginning of Lent, at the end of Feb. or the beginning of Mar. 1985, reported by T. Vlasic, VB 2, 66).
Many come to pray, but do not enter into prayer. (T. Vlasic, Apr. 5, 1985. VB 2, 74).
When you have entered into prayer, then you are able to pray for God's plans, because when God is there, he inspires your plans.
Do not ask for the blessing, just as you have done the last time. You asked for it and you did not obtain it.
(Because it is not a magic thing, she crowns what God has inspired in you in prayer, observes T. Vlasic, Apr. 5, 1985. VB 2, 75).
Prayer must be enjoyment in God, blossoming in God, be
full of peace, be full of joy
(T. Vlasic, Apr. 10, 1985. VB 2, 107).
Many Christians do not ever enter into prayer. They arrive at the beginning, but they remain there. (ibid).
(If you enter into prayer after you have been relieved of all your concerns, remorse, analysis), then you will be able to ask God to inspire your plans from within. You will feel what God wants, (inside of you, yourself and your group), and then ask for the blessing. (T. Vlasic, Apr. 10, 1985. VB 2, 112).
Your work will not go well without prayer in the morning. Pray then in the morning, and pray in the evening. Understand that your work cannot be done well without prayer
(Message of autumn 1983, T. Vlasic, Apr. 29, 1985. VB 2, 137).
Come early to church.
Sometimes it is better not to come to Mass than to come in a hurry and to return home in a hurry,
(S. Barbaric, May 18,1985, VB 2, 147).
These apparitions are the last for humanity (T. Vlasic, May31, 1985, VB 2, 165).

To Jelena, message of 1983:
Take me seriously. When God comes among men, he does not come to joke, but to say serious things.
It is better to stay in church and pray with faith than to gather together with onlookers near the seers during an apparition.
(Which had then taken place in the presbytery).

Message to the prayer group which had received many messages during Lent and was surprised not to receive any more after Easter:
Thank you to all those who pray and feel my presence. I regret that some individuals say the Gospa is no longer among us. Pray, and you will feel that I am present.
In a meeting of her prayer group, Jelena saw the desert, and in the desert, a tree, and under the tree, where the sun was shining. In this sun, she recognized Jesus Christ.
The Gospa told her, among other things:
To this group, many graces have been given, but you must not reject them. (T. Vlasic, June 15, 1985, VB 2, 18).

VB 3 (1986)

To Jelena's group, toward the beginning of July 1985:
I cannot speak to you. Your hearts are closed.
You have not done what I told you, I cannot speak to you. I cannot give you graces as long as you remain closed.
(T.Vlasic, July 13, 1985, VB 3, 15).
To Jelena for her group:
Each of you has a special gift which is your own, and can alone understand it interiorly.
To Jelena's prayer group:
It seems when you carry my messages, be on your guard that they are not lost. Carry my messages with humility, in such a way that on seeing happiness in you, persons will desire to be like you. Do not carry my messages to simply throw them to others.
T. Vlasic, July 15, 1985 comments: "Don't go to the cities:
Milan, Rome or Turin to cry: 'The Madonna has appeared.' Have them understand it through what you are. "
In the middle of June, 1985, Jelena saw a splendid pearl which divided itself, and each part glittered, then it faded. And she heard this explanation:
Jelena, man's heart is like this splendid pearl. When he belongs completely to the Lord, he shines even in the dark ness. But when he is divided, a little to Satan, a little to sin, a little to everything, he fades and is no longer worth any thing. (S. Barbaric, Aug. 4, 1985, VB 3, 37).

To Jelena, during the week of July 28th to August the 4th:
During these days, I wish that you consider this idea: After so long and so much time, I have not met Jesus, my friend. After so long and so much time, I have not encountered my Mother, Mary. In these days, I want to encounter them. (T. Vlasic, Aug. 5, 1985, VB 3, 39).
Do not be afraid of Satan. That isn 't worth the trouble, because with a humble prayer, and an ardent love, one can disarm him. (S. Barbaric, Aug. 8, 1985, VB 3, 57).

Prayer given to Jelena for her group:
My soul is full of love like the sea. My heart is full of peace like the river. I am not a saint, but I am invited to be one. (T. Vlasic, Sept. 10, 1985, VB 3, 97).

Against temptations of analysis, which are temptations from the devil:
With respect to sin, it suffices to give it serious consideration, and soon, move ahead and correct the sin.
Your humility must be proud
(high minded). Your pride should be humble.
If you have received a gift from God, you must be proud but do not say that it is yours. Say, rather, that it is God's.
(T. Vlasic, Sept. 10, 1985, VB 3, 98).
 

To Mirjana, in 1984 (Probably Aug. - Sept.):
Every adult is capable of knowing God. The sin of the world lies in this: It does not look for God. (T. Vlasic, Sept. 10, 1985, VB 3, 98).

To Maria, during her retreat of one week, beginning of September, in response to her question:
Have you anything concrete for me?
Yes. I give you my love so that you can give it to others. (S. Barbaric, Oct. 7, 1985, VB 3, 121).

The Gospa said with sadness:
Those who say, 'I do not believe in God, ' how difficult it will be for them when they will approach the Throne of God and hear the voice: Enter into Hell. (T. Vlasic, Oct. 8, 1985, VB 3, 127).

To Jelena, three evenings in succession, toward October 10th to 15th:
If you wanted to accept my love, you would never sin.

On the following evening (the fourth day) , Jelena asks:
Why do you always repeat the same message?
But I don't have anything else to say to you.
And she cries. (T. Vlasic, Oct. 19, 1985, VB 3, 151).
There are many who finish their prayers, even without entering into them. (ibid 3, 158).

A question from the pilgrims of Milan to Jelena:
We have come to you, Dear Mother. When will you come to Milan?

The Gospa's answer through Jelena:
When you open your hearts to me. (T. Vlasic, Oct. 25, 1985, 3, 167).

Tomislav Vlasic, whom the Blessed Virgin had entrusted with a responsibility through Jelena, asks through the seer, Maria:
How should I do it?
Do not worry, I will help you.
If you want to be stronger than evil, and grow in goodness, then develop an active conscience.
(T. Vlasic, Nov. 2, 1985, VB 3, 179).

To a prayer group, after an hour in which prayer of petition had prevailed:
Have you forgotten that you are in my hands? (T. Vlasic, Nov. 16, 1985, VB 3, 201).

VB 4 (1987)

To Jelena and Marijana, a little before February 25th:
Understand that you are nothing, incapable, really nothing. It is the Father who will do everything. (T. Vlasic, Feb. 25, 1986, VB 4, 39).

To Jelena, for her prayer group, after prayer and fasting:
I have listened to your prayer and yet you will not receive what you have wished. You will receive other things because it is not up to you to glorify yourself but to me to glorify myself in you. (ibid VB 4, 39).
Do not be afraid. Confide yourself to the Father. Pray, until you are sure that He guides everything.
In difficulties, when you carry the cross, sing, be full of joy

To a group who was praying for a person in crisis:
You cannot do anything. I can change her. You must only love her. Do not create any barriers in her life, because as long as there are barriers, the river foams and rises. Leave her free, like the river. Do not build any more bridges because as long as one builds bridges, the river is restricted and does not flow freely. Leave her free to flow like the river flows.

A month later the group, frustrated in its prayer, asks:
"But how is it that this girl (in Crisis) does not change?"
Answer, after a long moment of prayer:
Let her run like the river. Do not create any barriers. Do not build any bridges. Consider well and see how many barriers you have already created, how many bridges you have built. Be attentive not to close her. This young girl is at the point of opening up. She has confidence in you. Be patient still. Understand that you can do nothing. You must only love and leave everything to me.

To Jelena:
When people ask you to speak about the apparition, say: 'Let us pray together to understand the apparitions of the Gospa. '

In the prayer group which found the advice from the Gospa too rigid:
Why shut down the television? Why not even read the newspaper?
If you look at the programs, if you look at the newspapers,your heads are filled with news, then there is no longer any place for me in your hearts.
Pray. Fast. Let God act!
Pray for the gift of love, for the gift of faith, for the gift of prayer, for the gift of fasting.
(T. Vlasic, Apr. 17, 1986, VB 4, 63).

To Jelena, for her group:
I beg you, destroy your house made of cardboard which you have built on desires. Thus I will be able to act for you. (T. Vlasic, Apr. 17, 1986, VB 4, 63).

To Maria , for her prayer group:
Dear Children, seek to make your hearts happy through the means of prayer. Dear Children, be the joy for all mankind, be the hope of mankind. You will only be able to obtain it through the means of prayer. Pray, pray! (T. Vlasic, May 3, 1986, VB 4, 82).

To the prayer group during the week preceding May 3rd:
I give you the best that I can give anyone. I give myself and my Son.

To the group on March 25th, on the Feast of the Annunciation:
Today, before God, I say my 'Fiat ' for all of you. I repeat it: I say my 'Fiat ' for all of you.
Dear Children, pray, so that in the whole world may come the Kingdom of Love. How mankind would be happy if love reigned!

To Jelena, during the autumn of 1983:
Dear Children, one lives not only from work, one lives also from prayer.

Toward May 12th (at the beginning of the Novena of Pentecost) to the prayer group:
You will be happy if you do not judge yourselves according to your faults, but if you understand that in your faults even graces are offered to you. (T. Vlasic, May 18, 1986, VB 4, 93).
Love. If you do not love, you are not able to transmit the testimony. You are not able to witness, neither for me, nor for Jesus. (S. Barbaric, June 6, 1986, VB 4, 105).
I wish for all of you to be the reflection of Jesus. He will thus illuminate this unfaithful world which moves in darkness (ibid VB 4, 105).
Pray before the Cross. Special graces come from the Cross. Consecrate yourselves to the Cross. Do not blaspheme neither Jesus nor the Cross. (S. Barbaric, June 20, 1986, VB 4, 109).
You will have as many graces as you want. That depends on you. You will have love when you want it, as long as you want it. That depends on you. (T. Vlasic, June 26, 1986, VB 4, 110).

To the prayer group (July 10, 1986), before giving her blessing, at the end of an evaluation of the group:
I thank you for that. You have done well, but do not forget
(. .. ); basically, God's will is decisive.
(T. Vlasic, July 20, 1986, VB 4, 121).
I wish only that for you the Rosary become your life. (T. Vlasic, Aug. 4, 1986, VB 4, 134).
Read each Thursday the Gospel of Matthew, where it is said: No one can serve two masters (...). You cannot serve God and money. (Mt. 6, 24-34. - T. Vlasic, Aug. 5, 1986, VB 4, 14).

To Jelena, for her group:
I wish only that you would be happy, that you would be filled with joy, that you be filled with peace and announce this joy. (ibid).

To the prayer group:
if you would abandon yourselves to me, you will not even feel the passage from this life to the next life. You will begin to live the life of Heaven from this earth. (T. Vlasic, Aug, 7, 1986, VB 4, 142).

To Jelena, the beginning of September 1986:
Today it is not words nor deeds which are important. The important thing is only to pray, to remain in God. (T. Vlasic, Sept. 9, 1986, VB 4, 156).

Many have begun to pray for healing here at Medjugorje, but, when they have returned to their homes, they abandon prayer, forget, and also lose many graces. (S. Barbaric, Sept. 12, 1986 VB 4, 158).

Message of Jesus through Jelena:
I am joyful, but my joy is not complete until you are filled with joy. You are not yet filled with joy because you are not yet at the stage of understanding my immense love. (T. Vlasic, Oct. 8, 1986, VB 4, 167).
Answer from the Gospa through a seer, to Tomislav Vlasic, who was confronted with problems dealing with truth:
"Should I write, answer these injustices, these lies?"
Do not waste your time. Pray and love. You cannot even imagine how powerful God is. (T. Vlasic, Dec. 29, 1986, VB 4, 213).

To Vicka:
Do you want to offer yourself, also, for the salvation of the world? I need your sacrifices.

To a group from the parish of Medjugorje:
Come at 11 o 'clock at night to the place of the apparitions (...). Come at three o'clock in the morning to pray at the place of the Apparition.
Come at one o'clock in the morning to Krizevac.
Come and pray all night.
It is to Ivan's group that these messages of nocturnal prayer were addressed on the hill of the first apparitions, or at Krizevac. (T. Vlasic, Dec. 31, 1986, VB 4, 220).

Messages in this supplement are taken from www.medjugorje.hr, unless otherwise stated


May 25, 1988

"Dear children! I am inviting you to a complete surrender to God. Pray, little children, that Satan may not carry you about like the branches in the wind. Be strong in God. I desire that through you the whole world may get to know the God of joy. By your life bear witness for God's joy. Do not be anxious nor worried. God himself will help you and show you the way. I desire that you love all men with my love. Only in that way can love reign over the world. Little children, you are mine. I love you and want you to surrender to me so that I can lead you to God. Never cease praying so that Satan cannot take advantage of you. Pray for the knowledge that you are mine. I bless you with blessings of joy. Thank you for having responded to my call."

June 25, 1988

"Dear children! I am calling you to that love which is loyal and pleasing to God. Little children, love bears everything bitter and difficult for the sake of Jesus who is love. Therefore, dear children, pray that God come to your aid, not however according to your desire, but according to His love. Surrender yourself to God so that He may hear you, console you and forgive everything inside you which is a hindrance on the way of love. In this way God can move your life, and you will grow in love. Dear children, glorify God with a hymn of love so that God's love may be able to grow in you day by day to its fullness. Thank you for having responded to my call."

July 25, 1988

"Dear children! Today I am calling you to a complete surrender to God. Everything you do and everything you possess give over to God so that He can take control in your life as the King of all that you possess. That way, through me, God can lead you into the depths of the spiritual life. Little children, do not be afraid, because I am with you even if you think there is no way out and that Satan is in control. I am bringing peace to you I am your mother, the Queen of Peace. I am blessing you with the blessings of joy so that for you God may be everything in your life. Thank you for having responded to my call."

August 25, 1988

"Dear children! Today I invite you all to rejoice in the life which God gives you. Little children, rejoice in God, the Creator, because He has created you so wonderfully. Pray that your life be joyful thanksgiving which flows out of your heart like a river of joy. Little children, give thanks unceasingly for all that you possess, for each little gift which God has given you, so that a joyful blessing always comes down from God upon your life. Thank you for having responded to my call."

September 25, 1988

"Dear children! Today I am inviting all of you, without exception, to the way of holiness in your life. God gave you the grace, the gift of holiness. Pray that you may, more and more, comprehend it, and in that way, you will be able, by your life, to bear witness for God. Dear children, I am blessing you and I intercede to God for you so that your way and your witness may be a complete one and a joy for God. Thank you for having responded to my call."

October 25, 1988

"Dear children! My invitation that you live the messages which I am giving you is a daily one, specially, little children, because I want to draw you closer to the Heart of Jesus. Therefore, little children, I am inviting you today to the prayer of consecration to Jesus, my dear Son, so that each of you may be His. And then I am inviting you to the consecration of my Immaculate Heart. I want you to consecrate yourselves as parents, as families and as parishioners so that all belong to God through my heart. Therefore, little children, pray that you comprehend the greatness of this message which I am giving you. I do not want anything for myself, rather all for the salvation of your soul.

I desire that everyone may discover the joy and love which can be found only in God and which only God can give. God doesn't want anything from you only your surrender.

February 2, 1990

Mirjana received this apparition in Portland, Oregon in the United States of America while visiting Father Milan Mekulich who presided at her marriage. Mirjana had been receiving interior locutions on the second day of each month but on this occasion she was graced by an apparition and a message for the world.

"I have been with you nine years. For nine years I wanted to tell you that God, your Father, is the only way, truth and life. I wish to show you the way to Eternal Life. I wish to be your tie, your connection to the profound faith. LISTEN TO ME!

Take your Rosary and get your children, your families with you. This is the way to come to salvation. Give your good example to your children: give a good example to those who do not believe. You will not have happiness on this earth, neither will you come to Heaven if you are not with pure and humble hearts, and do not fulfill the law of God. I am asking for your help to join me to pray for those who do not believe. You are helping me very little. You have little charity or love for your neighbor and God gave you the love and showed you how you should forgive and love others. For that reason, reconcile and purify your soul. TAKE YOUR ROSARY AND PRAY IT. All your sufferings take patiently. You should remember that Jesus was patiently suffering for you.

Let me be your Mother and your tie to God, to the Eternal Life. Do not impose your faith on the unbelievers. Show it to them by your example and pray for them. MY CHILDREN, PRAY!"


Mirjana told Fr. Milan that Our Lady was referring to the Sacrament of Reconciliation, for Catholics, when She said. "...reconcile and purify your soul."

Through the years, Our Lady has given several bold and strong messages when the visionaries have had their apparitions in America, as this message given to Mirjana in America shows. Marija’s apparitions in America have been profound, Our Lady being boldly forward in messages given in Alabama about Her Special Blessing and to spread it, which the mentality in Medjugorje has oppressed. Jakov had his last apparition in America. It is viewed by some that Our Lady has done this because the mentality in America is more apt to release what Our Lady says and get the information out. (taken from www.medjugorje.com) (next added message is that of February 2nd 1997)


February 25, 1990

"Dear children! I invite you to surrender to God. In this season I specially want you to renounce all the things to which you are attached but which are hurting your spiritual life. Therefore, little children, decide completely for God, and do not allow Satan to come into your life through those things that hurt both you and your spiritual life.

"Dear children! I am with you even if you are not conscious of it. I want to protect you from everything that Satan offers you and through which he wants to destroy you.

God wants to save you and sends you messages through men, nature, and so many things which can only help you to understand that you must change the direction of your life.

Therefore, little children, do not forget that those messages which I am giving you have to be put into your everyday life in order that you might be able to say: "There, I have taken the messages and tried to live them."

I am with you and I am protecting you even though Satan wishes to destroy my plans and to hinder the desires which the Heavenly Father wants to realize here. Thank you for having responded to my call."

October 25, 1990

"Dear children! Today I call you to pray in a special way that you offer up sacrifices and good deeds for peace in the world. Satan is strong and with all his strength, desires to destroy the peace which comes from God. Therefore, dear children, pray in a special way with me for peace.

Therefore, dear children, pray that through prayer you can protect yourselves with God's blessing of peace. God has sent me among you so that I may help you. If you so wish, grasp for the rosary. Even the rosary alone can work miracles in the world and in your lives. I bless you and I remain with you for as long as it is God's will. Thank you for not betraying my presence here and I thank you because your response is serving the good and the peace."

February 25, 1991

"Dear children! Today, I invite you to decide for God, because distance from god is the fruit of the lack of peace in your hearts. God is only peace. Therefore, approach Him through your personal prayer and then live peace in your hearts and in this way peace will flow from your hearts like a river into the whole world.

Dear children, I invite you to life and to change all the negative in you, so that it all turns into the positive and life. Dear children, I am with you and I desire to help each of you to live and by living, to witness the good news. I am here, dear children, to help you and to lead you to heaven, and in heaven is the joy through which you can already live heaven now. Thank you for having responded to my call!"

"Dear children! Today on this great day which you have given to me, I desire to bless all of you and to say: these days while I am with you are days of grace. I desire to teach you and help you to walk the way of holiness. There are many people who do not desire to understand my messages and to accept with seriousness what I am saying. But you I therefore call and ask that by your lives and by your daily living you witness my presence. If you pray, God will help you to discover the true reason for my coming.

August 25, 1991

"Dear Children! Today also I invite you to prayer, now as never before when my plan has begun to be realized.

Therefore, let us pray that everything I have begun be fully realized. Thank you for having responded to my call."

September 25, 1991

"Dear children! Today in a special way I invite you all to prayer and renunciation. For now as never before Satan wants to show the world his shameful face by which he wants to seduce as many people as possible onto the way of death and sin. Therefore, dear children, help my Immaculate Heart to triumph in the sinful world. 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

"Dear children! Pray! Pray! Pray!"

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 to 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 who hates you and to the one who despises you. That way you will be able through Jesus' love to overcome all the misery in this world of sorrows, 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 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 blessing of peace and love. Dear children, do not forget that this is a grace which many people neither understand 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 in peace protect you from every satanic attack. 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. 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 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. Therefore, dear children, I am seeking for you to pray, so through prayer you would allow me to help you. Pray, my dear little children, so 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 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, be reconciled, you took these messages superficially. You started to live them and then you stopped, because it was difficult for you. No, 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 God and from me because of your miserable interest. I wanted to create of you an oasis of peace, love and goodness. God wanted you, with your love and with His help, to do miracles and, thus, give an 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 away 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 are mine and 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 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 still nearer to God. I am with you and I desire to lead you on the path to salvation that Jesus gives you. From day to day, I am nearer to you although you are not aware of it and you do not want to admit that you are only linked to me in a small way with your few prayers. When trials and problems arise, you say, "O God! O Mother! Where are you?" As for me, I only wait for your "Yes" to present to Jesus for Him to fill you with His grace. That is why, once more, please accept my call and start to pray in a new way until prayer becomes joy to you. Then you will discover that God is all powerful in your daily life. I am with you and I am waiting for you. Thank you for having responded to my call."

June 25, 1992

"Dear children! Today I am happy, even if in my heart there is still a little sadness for all those who have started on this path and then have left it. My presence here is to take you on a new path, the path to salvation. This is why I call you, day after day to conversion. But if you do not pray, you can not say that you are on the way to being converted. I pray for you and I intercede to God for peace; first peace in your hearts and also peace around you, so that God may be your peace. Thank you for having responded to my call."

July 25, 1992

"Dear children! Today also I invite you to prayer, a prayer of joy so that in these sad days no one amongst you may feel sadness in prayer, but a joyful meeting with God His Creator. Pray, little children, to be able to come closer to me and to feel through prayer what it is I desire from you. I am with you and each day I bless you with my maternal blessing so that Our Lord may fill you abundantly with His grace for your daily life. Give thanks to God for the grace of my being able to be with you because I assure you it is a great grace. Thank you for having responded to my call."

August 25, 1992

"Dear children! Today I desire to tell you that I love you. I love you with my maternal love and I invite you to open yourselves completely to me so that, through each one of you, I can convert and save this world which is full of sin and bad things. That is why, my dear little children, you should open yourselves completely to me so that I may carry you always further toward the marvelous love of God the Creator who reveals Himself to you from day to day. I am with you and I wish to reveal to you and show you the God who loves you. Thank you for having responded to my call."

September 25, 1992

"Dear children! Today again I would like to say to you that I am with you also in these troubled days during which Satan wishes to destroy all that my Son Jesus and I are building. He desires especially to destroy your souls. He wants to take you away as far as possible from the Christian life and from the commandments that the Church calls you to live. Satan wishes to destroy everything that is holy in you and around you. This is why, little children, pray, pray, pray to be able to grasp 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 toward 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 that 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, more than ever, I am calling you to pray. May your life become a continuous prayer. Without love you can not pray. That is why I am calling you to love God, the Creator of your lives, above everything else. Then you will come to know God and will love Him in everything as He loves you. Dear children, it is a grace that I am with you. That is why you should accept and live my messages for your own good. I love you and that is why I am with you, in order to teach you and to lead you to a new life of conversion and renunciation. Only in this way will you discover God and all that which now seems so far away from you. Therefore, my dear children, pray. Thank you for having responded to my call."

December 25, 1992

"Dear children! I desire to place all of you under my mantle and protect you from all satanic attacks. Today is a day of peace, but in the whole world there is a great lack of peace. That is why I call you all to build a new world of peace with me through prayer. This I can not do without you, and this is why I call all of you with my motherly love and God will do the rest. So, open yourselves to God's plan and to His designs to be able to cooperate with Him for peace and for everything that is good. 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 the little Jesus always accompany you. Thank you for having responded to my call."

May every hatred and jealousy disappear from your life and your thoughts, and may there only dwell love for God and for your neighbor. Thus, and only thus shall you be able to discern the signs of the 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."

February 25, 1993

"Dear children! Today I bless you with my motherly blessing and I invite you all to conversion. I wish that each of you decide 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 completely 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 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. Therefore, dear children, pray, pray, pray. Thank you for having responded to my call."

April 25, 1993

"Dear children! Today I invite you all to awaken your hearts to love. Go into nature and look how nature is awakening and it will be a help to you to open your hearts to the love of God, the Creator. I desire you to awaken love in your families so that where there is unrest and hatred, love will reign and when there is love in your hearts then there is also prayer. And, dear children, do not forget that I am with you and I am helping you with my prayer that God may give you the strength to love. I bless and love you with my motherly love. Thank you for having responded to my call."

May 25, 1993

"Dear children! Today I invite you to open yourselves to God by means of prayer so the Holy Spirit may begin to work miracles in you and through you. I am with you and I intercede before God for each one of you because, dear children, each one of you is important in my plan of salvation. I invite you to be carriers of good and peace. God can give you peace only if you convert and pray. Therefore, my dear little children, pray, pray, pray and do that which the Holy Spirit inspires you. Thank you for having responded to my call."

June 25, 1993

"Dear children! Today I also rejoice at your presence here. I bless you with my motherly blessing and intercede for each one of you before God.

Dear children, these are special times 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."

July 25, 1993

"Dear children! I thank you for your prayers and for the love you show toward me. I invite you to decide to pray for my intentions. Dear children, offer novenas, making sacrifices wherein you feel the most bound. I want your life to be bound to me. I am your Mother, little children, and I do not want Satan to deceive you for He wants to lead you the wrong way, but he cannot if you do not permit him. Therefore, little children, renew prayer in your hearts, and then you will understand my call and my live desire to help you. Thank you for having responded to my call."

August 25, 1993

"Dear children! I want you to understand that I am your Mother, that I want to help you and call you to prayer. Only by prayer can you understand and accept my messages and practice them in your life. Read Sacred Scripture, live it, and pray to understand the signs of the times. This is a special time, therefore, I am with you to draw you close to my heart and the heart of my Son, Jesus. Dear little children, I want you to be children of the light and not of the darkness. Therefore, live what I am telling you. Thank you for having responded to my call."

September 25, 1993

"Dear children! I am your Mother and I invite you to come closer to God through prayer because only He is your peace, your savior. Therefore, little children, do not seek comfort in material things, but rather seek God. I am praying for you and I intercede before God for each individual. I am looking for your prayers that you accept me and accept my messages as in the first days of the apparitions and only then when you open your hearts and pray will miracles happen. 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, that is why little children, this war is lasting so long. I invite you to open yourselves to God and in your hearts to live with God, living the good and giving witness to my messages. 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 give up sin. I invite you to be apostles of love and goodness. In this world of unrest give witness to God and God's love, and God will bless you and give you what you seek from Him. Thank you for having responded to my call."

November 25, 1993

Little children, with the message I give you a blessing with my son Jesus, so that in every heart peace may reign. I love you, little children, and I invite all of your to come closer to me by means of prayer. You talk and talk but do not pray. Therefore, little children, decide for prayer. Only in this way will you be happy and God will give your what you seek from Him. Thank you for having responded to my call."


1994

January 25,1994

"Dear children! You are all my children. I love you. But, little children, you must not forget that without prayer you cannot be close to me.

I love you and intercede before God for you. Little children, pray. Thank you for having responded to my call."

February 25, 1994

"Dear children! Today I thank you for your prayers. All of you have helped me so that this war may end as soon as possible.

I am your Mother and I love you all equally, and I intercede for you before God. Thank you for having responded to my call."

March 25, 1994

"Dear children! Today I rejoice with you and I invite you to open yourselves to me, and become an instrument in my hands for the salvation of the world.

Now I invite you in a special way, little children, to decide to go along the way of holiness. Only this way will you be close to me. I love you and I desire to conduct you all with me to Paradise. But, if you do not pray and if you are not humble and obedient to the messages which I am giving you, I cannot help you. Thank you for having responded to my call."

May 25, 1994

"Dear children! I invite you all to have more trust in me and to live my messages more deeply. I am with you and I intercede before God for you but also I wait for your hearts to open up to my messages. Rejoice because God loves you and gives you the possibility to convert every day and to believe more in God the Creator. Thank you having responded to my call."

June 25, 1994

"Dear children! Today I rejoice in my heart in seeing you all present here. I bless you and I call you all to decide to live my messages which I give you here.

I bless you all with my motherly blessing and I thank you for having responded to my call."

July 25, 1994

"Dear children! Today I invite you to decide to give time patiently for prayer. Little children, you cannot say you are mine and that you have experienced conversion through my messages if you are not ready to give time to God every day. I am close to you and I bless you all. Little children, do not forget that if you do not pray you are not close to me, nor are you close to the Holy Spirit who leads you along the path to holiness. Thank you for having responded to my call."

August 25, 1994

"Dear children! Today I am united with you in prayer in a special way, praying for the gift of the presence of my most beloved son in your home country.

I pray and intercede before my Son, Jesus, so that the dream that your fathers had may be fulfilled. Pray, little children, in a special way, because Satan is strong and wants to destroy hope in your heart. I bless you. Thank you for having responded to my call."

September 25, 1994

"Dear children! I rejoice with you and I invite you to prayer. Little children, pray for my intention. Your prayers are necessary to me, through which I desire to bring you closer to God.

October 25, 1994

"Dear children! I am with you and I rejoice today because the Most High has granted me to be with you and to teach you and to guide you on the path of perfection. Little children, I wish you to be a beautiful bouquet of flowers which I wish to present to God for the day of All Saints. I invite you to open yourselves and to live, taking the saints as an example. Mother Church has chosen them, that they may be an impulse for your daily life. Thank you for having responded to my call!"

November 25, 1994

"Dear children! Today I call you to prayer. I am with you and I love you all. I am your Mother and I wish that your hearts be similar to my heart.

Therefore, get closer, little children, to my Immaculate Heart and you will discover God. Thank you for having responded to my call."

December 25, 1994

"Dear children! Today I rejoice with you and I am praying with you for peace: peace in your hearts, peace in your families, peace in your desires, peace in the whole world.

1995

January 25, 1995

"Dear children! I invite you to open the door of your heart to Jesus as the flower opens itself to the sun. Jesus desires to fill your hearts with peace and joy. You cannot, little children, realize peace if your are not at peace with Jesus. Therefore, I invite you to confession so Jesus may be your truth and peace. So, little children, pray to have the strength to realize what I am telling you. I am with your and I love your. Thank you for having responded to my call."

February 25, 1995

"Dear children! Today I invite you to become missionaries of my messages, which I am giving here through this place that is dear to me. God has allowed me to stay this long with you and therefore, little children, I invite you to live with love the messages I give and to transmit them to the whole world, so that a river of love flows to people who are full of hatred and without peace. I invite you, little children, to become peace where there is no peace and light where there is darkness, so that each heart accepts the light and the way of salvation. Thank you for having responded to my call."


Our Lady's annual apparition to Mirjana - March 18, 1995
The apparition lasted ten minutes. After it, Mirjana, all in tears, withdrew to her room. Here is what she said about her meeting with Our Lady.
"I prayed the Our Father and the Glory be with our Lady three times. The first one was for unbelievers, especially for those who have not experienced God's love. The second was for the souls in purgatory and the third for the intentions of those who were present at the apparition. Our Lady blessed all those present and also all the religious articles. Our Lady was not happy during the apparition as she has been known to be during past apparitions for my birthday. She talked to me about the secrets but I cannot say anything about that."
In answer to questions why Mirjana cried and if Our Lady give any message, the visionary answered:
"It is hard for me when Our Lady goes away. The meeting with Our Lady is a fulfilment of everything. I feel completed. But when she leaves, I realize that I'm here, on earth, that I'm going on without her as if I were forsaken even though I know I am not. It is really hard, so hard . . .
In the message, Our Lady spoke about the love that we need. Her wish is that people love one another because God is love and if we love God, we will love one another. I understand this message as one of consolation and that we don't have to fear anything if we have love."
And this was Our Lady's message:
"Dear children! Already for many years as a Mother, I have been teaching you faith and God's love. You have not 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 toward your neighbours' sufferings. I am teaching you love and showing you that the dear Father loved you but you have not loved him. He sacrificed his Son for your salvation, my children. As long as you do not love, you will not know your Father's love. You won't get to know him because God is love. Love and don't be afraid, my children, because there is no fear in love. If your hearts are open to the Father and if they are full of love toward him, then why any fear of what is to come? Those who are afraid are the ones who do not love because they are waiting for punishments and because they know how empty and hard they are. Children, I am leading you to love, to the dear Father. I am leading you to eternal life. Eternal life is my Son. Receive him and you have received love."

March 25, 1995

"Dear Children! Today I invite you to live the peace in your hearts and families. There is no peace, little children, where there is no prayer and there is no love, where there is no faith. Therefore, little children, I invite you all, to decide again today for conversion. I am close to you and I invite you all, little children, into my embrace to help you, but you do not want and in this way, satan is tempting you, and in the smallest thing, your faith disappears. This is why little children, pray and through prayer, you will have blessing and peace. Thank you for having responded to my call."

April 25, 1995

"Dear children! Today I call you to love. Little children, without love you can neither live 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 nor 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. Satan is strong and with all his forces wants to bring closer the most people possible to himself and to sin. That is why he is on the prowl to snatch more every moment. I beg you, little children, pray and help me to help you. I am your mother and I love you and that is why I wish to help you. Thank you for having responded to my call."

June 25, 1995

"Dear Children! Today I am happy to see you in such great numbers, that you have responded and have come to live my messages. I invite you, little children, to be my joyful carriers of peace in this troubled world. Pray for peace so that as soon as possible a time of peace, which my heart waits impatiently for, may reign. I am near to you, little children, and intercede for every one of you before the Most High. I bless you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call."

Our Lady's annual apparition to Ivanka - June 25, 1995

Ivanka had the six-minute apparition at her family home at the end of which she brought this message of Our Lady to those present:
"Our Lady blessed every one present at the apparition. She spoke to me about the secrets. She called us to pray for families because Satan desires to destroy them. In addition, Our Lady called on all people to be messengers of peace."
At the end Ivanka added: "Now I will have to wait a whole year again for another meeting."


July 25, 1995

"Dear children! Today I invite you to prayer because only in prayer can you understand my coming here. The Holy Spirit will enlighten you to understand that you must convert. 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. Little children, pray, convert your hearts and come closer to me. May good overcome evil. I love you and bless you. Thank you for having responded to my call."

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. Therefore, let your morning begin with morning prayer, and the evening end with thanksgiving. Little children, I am with you, and I love you and I bless you and I wish for everyone of you to be in my embrace. You cannot be in my embrace if you are not ready to pray every day.Thank you for having responded to my call."

September 25, 1995

"Dear Children! Today I invite you to fall in love with the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. Adore Him, little children, in your Parishes and in this way you will be united with the entire world. Jesus will become your friend and you will not talk of Him like someone whom you barely know. Unity with Him will be a joy for you and you will become witnesses to the love of Jesus that He has for every creature. Little children, when you adore Jesus you are also close to me. Thank you for having responded to my call."

October 25, 1995

"Dear Children! Today I invite you to go into nature because there you will meet God the Creator. Today I invite you, little children, to thank God for all that He gives you. In thanking Him you will discover the Most High and all the goods that surround you. Little children, God is great and His love for every creature is great. Therefore, pray to be able to understand the love and goodness of God. In the goodness and the love of God the Creator, I also am with you as a gift. Thank you for having responded to my call."

November 25, 1995

"Dear Children! Today I invite you that each of you begin again to love, in the first place, God who saved and redeemed each of you, and then brothers and sisters in your proximity. Without love, little children, you cannot grow in holiness and cannot do good deeds. Therefore, little children, pray without ceasing that God reveals His love to you. I have invited all of you to unite yourselves with me and to love. Today I am with you and invite you to discover love in your hearts and in the families. For God to live in your hearts, you must love. Thank you for having responded to my call."

December 25, 1995

"Dear Children! Today I also rejoice with you and I bring you little Jesus, so that He may bless you. I invite you, dear children, so that your life may be united with Him. Jesus is the King of Peace and only He can give you the peace that you seek. I am with you and I present you to Jesus in a special way, now in this new time in which one should decide for Him. This time is the time of grace. Thank you for having responded to my call."


1996

January 25, 1996

"Dear Children! Today I invite you to decide for peace. Pray that God give you the true peace. Live peace in your hearts and you will understand, dear children, that peace is the gift of God. Dear children, without love you cannot live peace. The fruit of peace is love and the fruit of love is forgiveness. I am with you and I invite all of you, little children, that before all else forgive in the family and then you will be able to forgive others. Thank you for having responded to my call."

February 25, 1996

"Dear children! Today I invite you to conversion. This is the most important message that I have given you here. Little children, I wish that each of you become a carrier of my messages. I invite you, little children, to live the messages that I have given you over these years. This time is a time of grace. Especially now, when the Church also is inviting you to prayer and conversion. I also, little children, invite you to live my messages that I have given you during the time since I appear here. Thank you for having responded to my call."

Our Lady's annual apparition to Mirjana - March 18, 1996
This year also the visionary Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo had her apparition on March 18. After the apparition, Mirjana transmitted Our Lady's message:
"Dear children! On this message, which I give you today through my servant, I desire for you to reflect a long time. My children, great is the love of God. Do not close your eyes, do not close your ears, while I repeat to you: Great is his love! Hear my call and my supplication, which I direct to you. Consecrate your heart and make in it the home of the Lord. May he dwell in it forever. My eyes and my heart will be here, even when I will no longer appear. Act in everything as I ask you and lead you to the Lord. Do not reject from yourself the name of God, that you may not be rejected. Accept my messages that you may be accepted. Decide, my children, it is the time of decision. Be of just and innocent heart that I may lead you to your Father, for this that I am here, is his great love. Thank you for being here!"

March 25, 1996

"Dear children! I invite you to decide again to love God above all else. In this time when due to the spirit of consumerism one forgets what it means to love and to cherish true values, I invite you again, little children, to put God in the first place in your life. Do not let Satan attract you through material things but, little children, decide for God who is freedom and love. Choose life and not death of the soul, little children, and in this time when you meditate upon the suffering and death of Jesus I invite you to decide for life which blossomed through the Resurrection, and that your life may be renewed today through conversion that shall lead you to eternal life. Thank you for having responded to my call."

April 25, 1996

"Dear children! Today I invite you again to put prayer in the first place in your families. Little children, when God is in the first place, then you will, in all that you do, seek the will of God. In this way your daily conversion will become easier. Little children, seek with humility that which is not in order in your hearts, and you shall understand what you have to do. Conversion will become a daily duty that you will do with joy. Little children, I am with you, I bless you all and I invite you to become my witnesses by prayer and personal conversion. Thank you for having responded to my call."

May 25, 1996

"Dear children! Today I wish to thank you for all your prayers and sacrifices that you, during this month which is consecrated to me, have offered to me. Little children, I also wish that you all become active during this time that is through me connected to heaven in a special way. Pray in order to understand that you all, through your life and your example, ought to collaborate in the work of salvation. Little children, I wish that all people convert and see me and my son, Jesus, in you. I will intercede for you and help you to become the light. In helping the other, your soul will also find salvation. Thank you for having responded to my call."

June 25, 1996

"Dear children! Today I thank you for all the sacrifices you have offered me these days. Little children, I invite you to open yourselves to me and to decide for conversion. Your hearts, little children, are still not completely open to me and therefore, I invite you again to open to prayer so that in prayer the Holy Spirit will help you, that your hearts become of flesh and not of stone. Little children, thank you for having responded to my call and for having decided to walk with me toward holiness."

Our Lady's annual apparition to Ivanka - June 25, 1996

The apparition took place in her family home, and lasted seven minutes. After the apparition, Ivanka said that this had been one of the most beautiful apparitions that she had had up to the present. As well as this, Our Lady thanks us for our prayer and for our love and desires that prayer and love become interwoven into every day. In conclusion, she invited us to pray for those who were under diabolic possession.

July 25, 1996

"Dear children!

Today I invite you to decide every day for God. Little children, you speak much about God, but you witness little with your life. Therefore, little children, decide for conversion, that your life may be true before God, so that in the truth of your life you witness the beauty God gave you. Little children, I invite you again to decide for prayer because through prayer, you will be able to live the conversion. Each one of you shall become in the simplicity, similar to a child which is open to the love of the Father. Thank you for having responded to my call."

August 25, 1996

"Dear children!

Listen, because I wish to speak to you and to invite you to have more faith and trust in God, who loves you immeasurably. Little children, you do not know how to live in the grace of God, that is why I call you all anew, to carry the word of God in your heart and in thoughts. Little children, place the Sacred Scripture in a visible place in your family, and read and live it. Teach your children, because if you are not an example to them, children depart into godlessness. Reflect and pray and then God will be born in your heart and your heart will be joyous. Thank you for having for responded to my call."

September 25, 1996

"Dear children!

Today I invite you to offer your crosses and suffering for my intentions. Little children, I am your mother and I wish to help you by seeking for you the grace from God. Little children, offer your sufferings as a gift to God so they become a most beautiful flower of joy. That is why, little children, pray that you may understand that suffering can become joy and the cross the way of joy.
Thank you for having for responded to my call."

October 25, 1996

"Dear children!

Today I invite you to open yourselves to God the Creator, so that He changes you. Little children, you are dear to me. I love you all and I call you to be closer to me and that your love towards my Immaculate Heart be more fervent. I wish to renew you and lead you with my Heart to the Heart of Jesus, which still today suffers for you and calls you to conversion and renewal. Through you, I wish to renew the world. Comprehend, little children, that you are today the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Little children, I invite you and I love you and in a special way implore: Convert!" Thank you for having responded to my call."

November 25, 1996

"Dear children! Today, again, I invite you to pray, so that through prayer, fasting and small sacrifices you may prepare yourselves for the coming of Jesus. May this time, little children, be a time of grace for you. Use every moment and do good, for only in this way will you feel the birth of Jesus in your hearts. If with your life you give an example and become a sign of God's love, joy will prevail in the hearts of men.
Thank you for having responded to my call."

December 25, 1996

"Dear children!
Today I am with you in a special way, holding little Jesus in my lap and I invite you, little children, to open yourselves to His call. He calls you to joy. Little children, joyfully live the messages of the Gospel, which I am repeating in the time since I am with you. Little children, I am your Mother and I desire to reveal to you the God of love and the God of peace. I do not desire for your life to be in sadness but that it be realized in joy for eternity, according to the Gospel. Only in this way will your life have meaning.
Thank you for having responded to my call."

1997


Message of January 25, 1997

"Dear children! I invite you to reflect about your future. You are creating a new world without God, only with your own strength and that is why you are unsatisfied and without joy in the heart. This time is my time and that is why, little children, I invite you again to pray. When you find unity with God, you will feel hunger for the word of God and your heart, little children, will overflow with joy. You will witness God's love wherever you are. I bless you and I repeat to you that I am with you to help you. Thank you for having responded to my call."


February 2, 1997

Mirjana continued to see Our Lady monthly for the next seven years. There was no emphasis on making people aware of these important second of the month apparitions until Our Lady finally broke it open. Many have been waiting for this for years.The following is Mirjana’s account of Our Lady’s visit with her on February 2, 1997:
"Please tell everyone that Our Lady’s apparition to me on the 2nd of the month will now be like the regular apparitions to Vicka, Ivan, Jakov, and Marija. Our Lady said that whoever wants to be present at that apparition can come. Our Lady said that much prayer is needed for those who have not yet come to know the love of God. This is all."

Message of February 25, 1997

"Dear children! Today I invite you in a special way to open yourselves to God the Creator and to become active. I invite you, little children, to see at this time who needs your spiritual or material help. By your example, little children, you will be the extended hands of God, which humanity is seeking. Only in this way will you understand, that you are called to witness and to become joyful carriers of God`s word and of His love.
Thank you for having responded to my call."

"Dear children, pray for your brothers who haven’t experienced the love of the Father, for those whose only importance is life on earth.

Dear children, rejoice in the birth of Jesus and pray for all those hearts that have not opened to Jesus so that Jesus may enter into each of their hearts and may start working through them – so that every person would be an example of a true person through whom God works."

After the Apparition Mirjana shared with us the following:
"Our Lady did not give a classical message. She blessed all of us who were present and all the religious articles that we brought with us for blessing. With a serious expression on her face, Our Lady emphasized again the priestly blessing. With pain and love at the same time Our Lady said:
'Remember, children of mine, that it is my Son blessing you. Do not accept it so lightly'.

"After that Our Lady told me about some things that are supposed to happen and she said:
'There is no way without my Son. Do not think that you will have peace and joy if you do not have Him in the first place'."
Mirjana said: "I cannot say that Our Lady was sad or joyful; she was preoccupied, with loving care on her face." (e-mail of the e-mail list of www.childrenofmedjugorje.com, paper of the Caritas of Birmingham shop in Medjugorje)

Message to Mirjana, October 2, 2006

"Dear children, I am coming to you in this your time, to direct the call to eternity to you. This is the call of love. I call you to love, because only through love will you come to know the love of God. Many think that they have faith in God and that they know His laws. They try to live according to them, but they do not do what is the most important; they do not love Him. My children, pray and fast. This is the way which will help you to open yourselves and to love. Only through the love of God is eternity gained. I am with you. I will lead you with motherly love.

God sent me to lead you toward eternal life. I, little children, am not tired, although I see that your hearts are heavy and tired for everything that is a grace and a gift. Thank you for having responded to my call."


Message to Mirjana, 2 November 2006

Give me your hearts that I may put my Son in them and make my apostles of you -- apostles of peace and love. Thank you!"

Message to Mirjana, July 2, 2007

On July 2, 2007 Mirjana Soldo received her monthly apparition at the Cenacolo Community.  After the apparition, she transmitted the following message to us:

"Dear children!  In the great love of God, I come to you today to lead you on the way of humility and meekness.  The first station on that way, my children, is confession.  Reject your pride and kneel down before my Son.  Comprehend, my children, that you have nothing and you can do nothing.  The only thing that is yours and what you possess is sin. Be cleansed and accept meekness and humility.  My Son could have won with strength, but He chose meekness, humility and love.  Follow my Son and give me your hand so that, together, we may climb the mountain* and win.  Thank you!"

Again Our Lady spoke about the importance of priests and their blessing.
*Our Lady referred to the spiritual climb. (monthly report of July 15 2007 of Sr. Emmanuel at www.childrenofmedjugorje.com)

God will bless you and give you an abundance of grace. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (www.medjugorje.hr)


Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje August 2, 2007 Apparition to Mirjana for Nonbelievers

“Dear children! Today I look in your hearts and looking at them my Heart seizes with pain. My children! I ask of you unconditional, pure love for God. You will know that you are on the right path when you will be on earth with your body and with your soul always with God. Through this unconditional and pure love, you will see My Son in every person. You will feel oneness in God. As a Mother, I will be happy because I will have your holy and united hearts. My children, I will have your salvation. Thank you.”

At the beginning of the apparition, Our Lady showed Mirjana what is waiting for us if there is not the holiness in our hearts and our brotherly union in Christ. Mirjana said, “It was not nice at all.” She asked us to pray for our shepherds because She said that without them there is no unity.

“Dear children! Also today I call you to conversion. May your life, little children, be a reflection of God’s goodness and not of hatred and unfaithfulness.

And you who are far from God’s mercy, convert so that God may not become deaf to your prayers and that it may not be too late for you.

Message of October 25, 2007

“Dear children! God sent me among you out of love that I may lead you towards the way of salvation. Many of you opened your hearts and accepted my messages, but many have become lost on this way and have never come to know the God of love with the fullness of heart. Therefore, I call you to be love and light where there is darkness and sin. I am with you and bless you all. Thank
