Though the Five Days of Prayer ended on Saturday, July 5, Marija has remained for a private visit with the founder’s family and Community of Caritas. The apparition of Monday, July 6, took place in the Bedroom. It was a special apparition for the Community as beforehand, it was announced that one of the young couples in the community had just become engaged to be married, just moments before the Rosary. When Our Lady appeared, Marija recommended everyone to Our Lady and their intentions. In a special way, Marija recommended this young couple. Before giving Her blessing, Our Lady looked at the couple and smiled and then blessed everyone in the Bedroom, as well as the pilgrims who had gathered in the Field. And then surprisingly, when Marija asked where and when the apparition would be the following day, Tuesday, July 8, Our Lady said the Bedroom at 10:00 p.m. Our Lady had chosen to appear at 10:00 p.m. on two different nights during the Five Days of Prayer, July 3rd and 4th, but the next three days, the apparitions were in the Bedroom at 11:40 a.m. Not since the first apparitions in 1988-1989, twenty years ago, has Our Lady chosen to appear at 10:00 p.m. in the evening. Everyone was surprised at Her actions of appearing July 8, also at 10:00 p.m.
Pilgrims are invited to be in the Field tonight, gathering between 8:00-9:00 p.m. to prepare for Our Lady’s apparition. Prayer will begin at 9:00 p.m. Just as in 1988, Our Lady has been blessing everyone in the Field, from the Bedroom. Even if you live several hours away, we encourage you to come and be in the presence of Our Lady. We have heard from many people over the years who made the effort in 1988-89 to come to the late night apparitions who received profound and lasting conversions.
Parking will be allowed in the Caritas parking lot, and on the shipping and cargo ramps up at Caritas.
