At 3:45 a.m. here in Medjugorje, a group of about 25 people entered a building with exuberant expectation of Our Lady’s second of the month apparition to Mirjana. By 6:45 a.m., the building was filled to capacity up to the reserved area and crowds of people were still coming to present themselves before the Mother of God. There was a lively group to lead songs of praise to Jesus, then more songs in preparation for Our Lady’s apparition.
Priests and religious were praying their morning prayers. People in wheelchairs were assisted and brought to an area reserved closer to where Mirjana would kneel. Then children were escorted in and situated in a semi-circle closest to where Our Lady would be, just beyond where Mirjana would kneel.
Mirjana arrived about 8:55 a.m. By now there were people in the thousands waiting for the moment Our Lady would appear. Mirjana knelt down and when Our Lady appeared, Mirjana was very animatedly speaking to Our Lady, nodding her head several times and at one time shook her head no. The apparition lasted about 5 minutes.
Our Lady spoke the following words to Mirjana:
Our Lady blessed every one and all of the religious articles.
Our Lady’s first sentence clearly, unequivocally tells us “…do not be afraid…” And as Our Lady says, we should not fear. But the question should be posed, “Do not be afraid of what?” Our Lady indicated the “what” when She said, “…in this time of God’s signs…” What are God’s signs going to be that God’s children are being told, guided, and conditioned to “not be afraid” of those signs? There is no question we are being made ready for the release of the first secret, but will it be preceded by signs, several signs, or is God’s sign the secret’s release and the happenings around it? We cannot say so with certainty, but it is easy to discern that Our Lady’s past several 2nd of the month messages for nonbelievers, which include all of us who have various degrees of non-belief, that Our Lady is preparing us so that in the midst of the actions of God, that will be frightful to an unimaginable degree, Our Lady is pre-warning us, telling us why not to be afraid. It is because She will be with us. In the moment of the signs of God, She “pre-comforts” us saying, “…do not be afraid because I am with you…”, even emphasizing that when one is in the midst of trials, one’s faith wanes. She, therefore, repeats the words at the end of the message again, that “…I will be with you…” Study today’s message, repeat it to yourself and memorize it. Understand what is in our midst, in our life time, and it will be easy to pray, easy to fast, easy to be purified, and easy to convert. Find time today to kneel in humility and plant this message into your heart and soul.
P.S. Further messages to grasp the meaning of the signs of the times we are living in are below.

Prayer for Nonbelievers
Come tomorrow again and again.
We will pray with You.
Bring back our loved ones
Who have left the Church,
Those who have left God.
We will join You on the second of each month.
We will pray for greater graces
To be attached to Your intention.
We will pray that the dam of love,
Of God’s mercy, will break forth,
That Your new prayer be released soon.
We will pray that it will flow out
As a river to all the nations,
That as the rivers fill the oceans,
Your love of God will fill the earth.
We anticipate that great day,
And we call You as You have called us,
To add our prayers, fasting, and sacrifices
To Mirjana’s in order that You may
Obtain all Your wishes for the world.
O loving Mother,
Thank You for the gift
That the world is on the brink of receiving!
