OME AND BE IN THE PRESENCE OF THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN July 1-5, 2009, when She appears to Marija Lunetti, visionary of Medjugorje, to receive graces, blessings, and healing of hearts. Tens of thousands have testified to the life-changing grace received from a special holy place in Alabama.

The Field…mystical…quiet…the site where the Mother of Jesus appeared to Marija. The Virgin Mary told Marija for those gathered,“…I am here to help you!…” Since that moment on November 24, 1988, countless numbers have come to this Holy Field to pray, seek grace, and mend hearts. A place of the meeting of the two hearts. An encounter with the Hearts of Mary and Her Son…Jesus. No one who visits when there are apparitions are ever the same…for the rest of their lives…forever affected…forever…into eternity.

The two sites of the Bedroom and Field of Apparitions, located at Caritas, have been graced by 146 apparitions of the Virgin Mary over the past 21 years. By what Our Lady has said and done in 1988, 1989, 1994, 1998, 1999, 2001, 2003, 2004, July/August 2005, November 2005, 2008, and February 2009, through the Medjugorje visionary, Marija Lunetti, She reveals that She has a plan for Our Nation. The primary site of the apparitions has been in the Bedroom of a consecrated “beloved home” with 118 apparitions in this room. The Field was consecrated to Our Lady for the conversion of Our Nation. The two sites are connected in that the Bedroom represents the family, “the home,” and the Field represents Our Nation. We cannot hope to heal Our Nation without first healing the family home. Over 4,000 flowers were arranged in the Bedroom, representing the hearts of people from across the United States, to show their love and devotion to Our Lady in the last days of Her apparitions to Marija at Caritas, July 2008. Marija was inspired and some community members joined in to help her form the heart on top of the Bed that would receive Our Lady.
INCE 1988 THESE SPECIAL WHEN OUR LADY appears to Marija have often attracted tens of thousands of pilgrims to the Bedroom and the Field of Apparitions. People of all classes become the same, on their knees, shoulder to shoulder. The area around Caritas* is so open that crowds do not bother those who would normally be bothered. Rather, the outdoor environment puts you as one of those who followed Jesus in the crowds, a spiritual joy, consolation and an excitement you’ve never experienced before, will fill your heart. Countless souls have had their prayers answered or been given a divine peace about their problems by pilgrimaging to the Bedroom and Field of Apparitions.

*Caritas of Birmingham is a mission dedicated to Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje and the messages She gives. It is located at the site of the apparitions and operated by the Community of Caritas, a community that in 1988 Our Lady asked to be founded. It is comprised of a group of people who have joined together to be missionaries of what the Queen of Peace, the Virgin Mary, wants established in the world.
HE BEDROOM OF APPARITIONS IS THE BIRTHPLACE of Our Lady’s apparitions at Caritas. At the foot of this Bed, adorned with flowers and petitions, Marija has knelt to receive Our Lady 118 times since 1988. The Bedroom has been a special place to pray for the healing of families and is only open during Caritas’ annual retreats or special spiritual events. It will be open for you on scheduled days during July 1–5, 2009, for you to pray there and bring Our Lady your needs for yourself, your marriage, your family or friends, or for healing and to give gratitude. The Bedroom is an extraordinary, special place for the heart.

December 10, 1999 A line of people twists back and forth up the hill to go and pray in the Bedroom of Apparitions. Well over one hundred thousand people have visited the Bedroom of Apparitions. Within these walls, the Holy Virgin Mary has appeared physically to Marija Lunetti, seeing Her as we see another person. Marija can speak to Her, touch Her, and hear Her voice. Our Lady has appeared to her in this same way every day since June 25, 1981. Our Lady came to the world as a Mother to heal a broken world, resulting from the family being broken. That is why Our Lady chose the Bedroom, for it is where families are born. Our Lady said She wants the “fruits of the family to be seen one day.”
Marija Lunetti in ecstasy speaks to the Virgin Mary in the Bedroom of Apparitions, oblivious to those around her. With the apparitions in the Field, Our Lady has appeared a total of 146 apparitions at the site. Marija loves coming to Caritas to be with the family that she has become family with. Having witnessed what Our Lady has done here in the Bedroom and the Field of Apparitions, has placed in her heart a special love for the place.

*The crucifix (pictured above in the Bedroom picture) originated in Medjugorje. It hung on the wall of Fr. Slavko’s office during the time the daily apparitions were taking place there. The visionaries would come into the room and kneel before this crucifix to receive Our Lady. This crucifix was present in hundreds of apparitions in Medjugorje. In 1988, Fr. Slavko gave this crucifix to the founder of Caritas as a gift. Profoundly moved by this, our founder brought it to Marija and asked her to pray a prayer over it, that it would be used by Our Lady as a great instrument of conversion for Our Nation.
HE FIELD OF APPARITIONS was birthed from the Bedroom. In 1988, thousands began to find their way to Alabama from all corners of this nation, longing to be in Our Lady’s presence. The apparitions began in the Bedroom. All could not physically fit in the home where the Bedroom was located, yet the Field enveloped all as a blanket bringing warmth and a feeling of home. As the thousands came, gathering around the home, Our Lady one day said She would appear the next day outside near a pine tree. Many began to gather in the Field who knew nothing of the family that knelt in prayer on the blanket next to them, but they became one under Our Lady’s mantle. Our Lady chose Thanksgiving day, November 24, 1988, to appear for the first time to Marija in the Field for all those gathered. She said from this spot, “I invite you to live my messages. I am here to help you! I will intercede for you to God for all your intentions.” For the visiting people, a visit to the Bedroom and the Field of Apparitions is a rebirth for their spirits…a new dawn. Many testify they never experienced anything close to what Our Lady has given in the Bedroom and Field anywhere else and that the grace is renewed, even by just visiting the grounds Our Lady has appeared upon.

e must not lose time! To have Our Lady and pray before Her to heal Our Nation is a grace only this generation will experience. It is Our Lady who said, after these Medjugorje apparitions, She will no longer appear upon the earth. The time of these types of apparitions will be over. When Marija was asked what that meant, she said Our Lady will never appear again on the earth where we can see Her, touch Her and speak to Her. The era of Guadalupe, Lourdes, Fatima and Medjugorje apparitions will end with Medjugorje. That understood, should make us pinch ourselves at the opportunity we still have to come from all across this Nation and plead for ourselves, our families and our Nation and thereby the world, in Her physical presence while She comes to us during the moment of Her apparitions to Marija.
This July 1–5, 2009 visit materialized through eight apparitions we just have had at Caritas in February that you will read about in the March, 2009 special edition of Words of the Harvesters below. You can receive a free copy by calling 205-672-2000 ext. 315 twenty-four hours. We did not expect these eight apparitions any more than we expected the July 1–5 coming up. They were a gift. If Marija sees Our Lady’s actions and realizes, through the apparitions, how important it is for Our Lady to be here again, July 1–5, what should we as Americans realize in regards to this opportunity? Spread this from the rooftops! Order this 12-page brochure free to give away to all. Those of you who were here last July 1–5, 2008 can share your experiences of those five profound days in which lives were touched by Heaven’s grace descending upon them. Many were healed. Some learned of this touch of grace even month’s after the event, such as the following letter shows:
Dear Caritas, February 22, 2009
What Will It Mean to Consecrate or Re-consecrate Ourselves July 2nd, Our Families July 3rd, and Our Nation July 4th in the Presence of Our Lady? How Powerful Is Consecration? What Can We Expect from Heaven Through the Consecration of July 1–5, 2009?
A wonderful apparition that Marija had in a small nation in Europe shows the depth and power of what a prepared for and serious consecration to Our Lady means. Marija had been invited by a family for an apparition in which the family had prayed and prepared for months to consecrate themselves totally to Our Lady. They had prayed, sacrificed, fasted, and confessed in order to be ready to consecrate themselves at the moment of Our Lady’s apparition, when Our Lady appeared to Marija. Our Lady appeared and they fulfilled their consecration, reciting it in Her presence. The grandparents had prepared their children and their grandchildren to give themselves to Our Lady. Marija came out of the apparition astounded at what Our Lady told her during the apparition. Our Lady gave a message to the grandparents, their adult children and their children who had gathered to give their entire family to Our Lady. Marija was surprised at Our Lady’s response to the consecration. Our Lady said to them:
“You will never regret this consecration.
“Your children will never regret this consecration.
“Your children’s children, all your generations, will never regret this consecration.”
Marija was amazed at this and even months after was still animated with joy in explaining the apparition.
By coming July 1–5, you are being given an opportunity that the saints longed for. St. Louis De Montfort told of this time over 300 years ago. He said Our Lady would come in the latter days and raise up apostles who would be purified as the children of Levi. They would spread across the earth on silver wings. He finished by saying how he waited and longed, oh, how he longed, to be a part of the coming glorious special time of grace we are now in.
You are offered something incomprehensible this July 1-5. Take it!
Drop Everything! Change your schedule and vacation time. Be at Caritas for an event which very few over the centuries have experienced and all generations who follow us will never have. This generation is the last in man’s history to have Our Lady in this way.
Do not be turned away from Caritas. Reading the following is a must:

Schedule of Events
No matter at what point you joined us in praying for Our Nation*, even if you are just now finding out, you can join thousands who have walked these 17 years of prayer for Our Nation and be present in the apparitions to give these prayers to Our Lady.
On the Hour Prayer: Three Hail Mary’s will be prayed on the top of every hour, from 9–5 for a nine-hour novena each day. We will offer these prayers for Our Lady’s intentions and for Our Nation’s healing. At the sound of the bells every hour, kneel down, pray the three Hail Mary’s to Our Lady.
There will be scheduled talks with Marija and A Friend of Medjugorje throughout the week. It will be important to attend and listen for the times of these talks and other events such as the visit to the Bedroom of Apparitions, the behind the scenes walk through the mission, the climb to Grotto La Pluie, and the Patriotic Rosary, which will be announced at our morning prayer at 8:00 am.
Our Lady’s return to the Bedroom and Field this coming July has generated a great deal of excitement around the country. We encourage you to book your hotel rooms for the July 1–5 (June 30th to the 6th or later) 2009, apparitions as soon as possible. Several hotels will fill all their rooms. We are expecting large numbers to attend, as always when Our Lady comes, which makes tighter availability for pilgrims desiring to attend the apparitions to find rooms. Even if you are not sure you can come, make reservations. You can always cancel. So don’t delay in making your arrangements.
