When Our Lady was appearing in the home of our founder, at the time of the apparition each day the pilgrims who were in the Field would actually kneel facing towards the house. Most people gathered each day in the center of the Field near the Pine Tree next to Our Lady's statue. From this time, thereafter, Our Lady's statue is the spot where Our Lady has continued to appear when Her apparitions have been in the Field, and where the pilgrims gather still today for prayer events at Caritas.
This picture captures the moment of the apparition on January 14, 1989. In order to relay to people that the apparition was beginning, white Christmas lights forming the word “Mir” which means “Peace” in the Croatian language, were attached to the outdoor porch of the home. These lights would be plugged in at the moment Marija went into ecstasy. At the sign of these lights, silence would cover the Field. Marija would always ask Our Lady’s blessing upon all those in the Field. After the apparition ended, someone from the house would come out and share with everyone in the Field what Our Lady did and said that day.
Remarkably, in this picture sent in by a pilgrim, in the treeline exactly where the house where Our Lady was appearing is located, a perfectly formed circle is visible within the trees. Looking through the trees, the skylights of the home can be seen which locates the house for the reader. Many, many signs were given to pilgrims during these months of Our Lady's presence, such as this one. Their stories spread and drew more and more people to come to experience Our Lady's apparitions for themselves.
