In Medjugorje, thousands were gathered, even some climbing trees and walls at the last moment, to get a glimpse of Mirjana while seeing Our Lady, recalling, in Scripture, Zaccheus climbing the tree to see Jesus. Hungry eyes and spirits to witness Mirjana’s annual March 18th apparition. The holy ground of Medjugorje heard rosary after rosary prayed accompanied by singing in preparation for the Medjugorje apparition.
Mirjana arrived at the Blue Cross at approximately 1:38 p.m. The apparition lasted five minutes from 1:50 p.m. to 1:54 p.m. Mirjana’s head was bent in prayer, as she joined all those gathered in the Rosary, suddenly looked up and a huge smile appeared on her face as she saw Our Lady. Her hands were clasped in prayer and she moved her lips in conversation with Our Lady. Her emotions ranged from smiles to concentrated seriousness to tears during her encounter with Our Lady. A couple of times Medjugorje visionary, Mirjana, shrugged her shoulders. Throughout her apparition, her hands would be open and then clasped in prayer. As Our Lady left, she again clasped her hands and bowed her head back down as she was before the apparition. Mirjana then bent down in tears.
Immediately after the apparition, there were cries and exclamations as people turned towards the sun and saw it spinning. A couple of minutes after the apparition, Mirjana dictated the words from Our Lady and they were written down.
As the thousands tried to make their way down from the apparition, there was more than a sea of people, a scene right out of the Bible. Down the path from Blue Cross and the streets beyond all one could see was people. To see, to witness, to be in Medjugorje, is to feel the Bible in one’s soul.
The following was taken from A Friend of Medjugorje’s writing, “I Don’t Have to Go to Medjugorje.” Reasons Why One Must Go to Medjugorje.” It’s in direct reference to Our Lady’s message today and the above scripture quote from Revelation.
God’s will is being manifested in a place Our Lady said She chose Herself and in a people that She said are a chosen people. It is Our Lady who has established the oasis of the new time – a “Jerusalem” of the latter times. This is a village where it is Her expressed desire that all peoples of the earth, all nations come to receive the medicine for all the nations which She dispenses through Her monthly messages. A monthly message which is given out once each month, twelve times a year, that She, Herself, said are conveyed from God, which produces fruit twelve times a year.
The Virgin Mary tells us to go to Sacred Scripture to discover the true reason for Her coming here, to discover the message for you! St. Louis De Montfort longed for it! He called it not the end of time, but the latter times! Go read Sacred Scripture to find the true reason Our Lady is coming. Go to the last book of the Bible. Go to that book’s last chapter. Then go to the last five verses of the chapter and find what the latter part of Scripture says. You will discover the last five verses of the Bible before the epilogue, John’s last words of Revelation; the description of our time, of what lay hidden for ages, come to life in what you are about to see, that which the saints and prophets longed for, is unlocked and revealed after two thousand years. The last words of the Bible:
“The angel then showed me the river of life-giving water clear as crystal, which issued from the throne of God and of the lamb, and flowed down the middle of the streets. On either side of the river grew the trees of life which produced fruit twelve times a year, one each month; the leaves served as medicine for the nations.”
