What Happened on January 20, 1989
January 20, 1989, 5:40 p.m.
No public message; however, Our Lady did give a private message for someone in the room.
A private question was presented to Our Lady by Caritas’ founder. He had discussed this message with Marija before having her present it to Our Lady. Marija cautioned him by saying that She had never known Our Lady to answer “yes” to this particular question when others had asked it. This did not deter him as he felt strongly in his heart to ask it of Our Lady. If She said “no,” he would be at peace that this was the will of God. After the apparition, Marija was surprised that Our Lady had not said “no” but rather that She would inform him at a later time. Though Our Lady did not say “yes”, She had left the possibility open of saying yes in the future, rather than closing the door to any possibility.
Thirteen years later, while Marija was present at Caritas for the Seven Days of Prayer for the Reconciliation of Ourselves, Our Families and Our Nation Back to God, December 8-14, 2001, the founder approached Our Lady, through Marija, with the question, as no answer had yet been given. Following is Marija’s description of that apparition in which only the Caritas Community was present in the Bedroom:
December 15, 2001
When Our Lady came, I recommended each of us and all our intentions in our hearts. Our Lady prayed over us for a long time. I presented a private question to Our Lady. Immediately upon asking the question, Our Lady smiled and gave a private answer. Our Lady looked at each of us and then blessed us. She ascended back to Heaven, saying, "Go in peace." Our Lady was very happy and joyful during this apparition.
Through the years the founder had asked Our Lady this question on several occasions, never receiving an affirmative message. However, he, along with the community, was very happy in that in this apparition of December 15, 2001, Our Lady gave an indication of a positive answer, though they continue to wait on the fullness of Her answer. Our Lady’s joy in this apparition also encouraged them to wait patiently for Heaven’s timing in regards to this question.
