The following was originally written by A Friend of Medjugorje in 1989, and we offer to you for your spiritual nourishment, followed by what you can do...

Our Lady has been appearing so long in Medjugorje that to some it doesn’t even raise an eyebrow any longer. Is this something that should shake us to our very souls or is this just our Mother helping us a little and everything will be fine...? One statement we have from Our Lady is so strong it should literally stun us.

May 2, 1982

“I have come to call the world to conversion for the last time. Afterwards, I will not appear any more on this earth.”

The visionaries have all been asked about this message. In response to the question that Our Lady said that these were Her last apparitions on earth, the visionaries answered:


“I do not know why this apparition is our Blessed Mother’s last apparition on earth…Her words were very simple. She said this is Her last apparition on earth. She said after the secrets are realized She won’t need to come again.” 1


“The Blessed Mother said that this is Her last apparition on earth, where we can touch Her, see Her, and talk to Her...After the secrets are realized, the Blessed Mother will not need to come anymore.” 2



“Yes, the Blessed Mother said that it is the last apparition ever3...She says She won’t need to come again after the secrets are realized.” 4



“Yes, it is.” 5

Vicka was asked by Caritas to get a fuller meaning about this statement. After being asked the same question in different forms, five times, Vicka strongly said, “Our Lady said these are Her last apparitions on earth!!

If this is the case and indeed these are the last apparitions, surely we are in the midst of a grand design by God that is profound and we should do everything Our Lady asks. The following are Our Lady’s own words about Her call for the last time:

May 2, 1982

“I have come to call the world to conversion for the last time. Afterwards, I will not appear any more on this earth.”

February 21, 1985

“Dear children, from day to day I have been inviting you to renewal and prayer in the parish, but you are not accepting it. Today I am calling you for the last time!”

The following two messages are indirect references to Our Lady’s time in calling us.

November 29, 1981

“It is necessary for the world to be saved while there is still time, for it to pray strongly, and for it to have the spirit of faith.”

November 22, 1981

“…The world must find salvation while there is time. Let it pray with fervor. May it have the spirit of faith.”

Indeed, these messages are so profound that Our Lady says:

November 8, 1984

“…you are not conscious of the messages which God is sending…”

October 25, 1988

“…pray that you may comprehend the greatness of the message…”

Many of us think we understand the messages, but Our Lady indicates that many understand them through our intelligence not with our heart.

May 22, 1986

“…You do not understand my words with your heart…”

Our Lady says to understand we must “pray,” then we will understand all. Indeed, the more we pray and understand about Our Lady’s plans, the more in awe we will be of the magnitude of these plans.

What Can You Do?

After reading the above, it becomes more clear that Medjugorje is more than just an ordinary event. Medjugorje is an everyday event, taking place for over 32 years, an happening unpredecented in the history of mankind. So, a pilgrimage to Medjugorje is a must for every child of Our Lady. If you do not have the money to go, begin planning now and ask Our Lady for the help needed to make the pilgrimage. Perhaps you have already gone, have you thought about sending someone else? For all the tired souls out there in need of God and an encounter with their Mother, would you not grace them with the ability to do so? God will reward you with great graces. Begin by praying and God will light up the plans. For information about beginning your Medjugorje pilgrimage contact BVM Caritas Medjugorje Pilgrimages at 205-672-2000, extension 218 or 219.

“The graces, blessings, experiences, advantages, and spiritual directions of being with a Caritas group are numerous. The affirmation from a fellow pilgrim best describes the experience we were blessed to be a part of. He said, ‘This is my 19th visit to Medjugorje and I have never experienced a pilgrimage that has been so spiritually rewarding and as richly blessed as this BVM/Caritas pilgrimage has been for me.’ I endorse his sentiments totally!!”

Three wordsGo with Caritas! I feel so blessed to have gone with them on this pilgrimage. Even before my trip began they started ‘preparing the soil’ so that when I returned home there was an abundance of fruit! I feel this deep peace in my soul which I have never felt in my life before! This is because Caritas focuses on the spiritual aspect, and God is able to do His work. I walked away with a true spirit of conversion, a new resolution to serve God and a sweet, sweet love for our Heavenly Queen. Truly Medjugorje is a place of great graces and blessings and Caritas is very meticulous in making sure you get the most blessing out of the pilgrimage – Three more words: GO, GO, GO!”
