March 18, 1991 - Mirjana's Annual Apparition
The following is Mirjana’s description of her annual birthday apparition:
Five days before my birthday, while in prayer, I found out that Our Lady would appear to me at 7:30 p.m. On that evening, many people gathered and we prayed. Exactly at 7:30 p.m. She appeared, this time not as sad as last year. You could say Her mood was normal. This time no light preceded Her as it did during the time of Her daily apparitions. She stayed for seven minutes. Upon leaving, the Heavens opened and I saw three angels waiting for Her. Only in August 1981 had I seen the angels waiting for Her like this after She had been with us.
On this occasion She did not speak to me about the secrets. During the apparition I prayed three “Our Fathers” with Her, one for non-believers, one for all those who needed it, and one for all the sick who were present.

June 25, 1991 - Ivanka's Annual Apparition
Our Lady appeared to Ivanka for approximately eight minutes. Many crowded in her living room. Ivanka’s facial expressions ranged from intensely serious to supremely joyful. Ivanka recommended all present to Our Lady. She said Our Lady spoke to her about the first half of the sixth secret.
It has been realized that during Ivanka’s last four annual apparitions Our Lady has spoken about the secrets in progression. In 1988, Our Lady spoke about the third and fourth secrets. In 1989, She spoke about the first half of the fifth secret. In 1990, as if continuing where She left off the previous year, Our Lady spoke about the last half of the fifth secret. In 1991, Our Lady spoke to her about the first half of the sixth secret. Everything Our Lady does and says is done forreason. The discussion of these secrets in this progression is in itselfmessage to us.
Ivanka stated that Our Lady said:
† The Croatian word which was used means “unbreakable.” The closest grammatically correct English translation is “more strongly.” The English translation, “more strongly,” is weaker than the word which Our Lady used meaning “unbreakable.”
