October 6, 1986
Permission was given by Fr. Pervan for an individual from Birmingham, Alabama, to ask Marija to present a question to Our Lady. The individual explained why he would like this asked of Our Lady as well as other information concerning the Birmingham area so that Marija would have a clear understanding of why this was desired. After discussing several things about the region, Marija requested to keep the question and stated that if Our Lady gave an answer, (many times She gives no answer), she would write it down and return it following the apparition that night.

The question: "Dear Blessed Mother, if it is God’s will, we humbly ask that the conversion taking place in Medjugorje be allowed to take place in the Parish of Blessed Sacrament in Alabama and that it ‘divinely’ be spread throughout the whole region. We surrender this Parish to you and ask if there is anything you request." Marija and Jakov went to the kitchen and Marija wrote down Our Lady’s answer which starts off with, "Gospa says": (Gospa means Blessed Mother.)

"Pray and by your life witness. Not with words but rather through prayer will you attain what your desire is. Therefore, pray more and live in humility."

Below is a photo of Our Lady’s response, written in Marija’s handwriting in Croatian.

Our Lady’s answer was prophetic and not completely understood until November 18, 1988 when Marija came to Birmingham, Alabama, and Our Lady prayed, blessed, and converted tens of thousands of people who traveled there from as far away as South America, the Caribbean, and even Russia.
