Usually Our Lady comes to the visionaries “happy and joyful,” as Ivan puts it after each apparition. But on some occasions Our Lady has appeared to be very sad. On other very rare occasions She has cried. One time She cried when She was talking about the Bible. Father Jozo says that, as a priest, he saw many mothers mourning their sons at funerals, but he never saw a mother so sad as the Mother of God when She talked about the Bible. Those tears are terrible tears. While crying, Our Lady said:
 

“You have forgotten the Bible.”
 

The Bible is a book different from any other book on earth. Vatican II says that all the canonical books of the Bible were, “…written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, they have God as their author.” (Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation, Chapter 3.) This means that no other book can be compared to this book. That is why Our Lady asks us to separate THE BOOK from the other human books on the shelves. There is no writing even from a saint or inspired that can be compared to the Bible. That is why we are asked to place the Bible in a visible, separate place in our homes:

“Dear children, today I call you to read the Bible everyday in your homes and let it be in a visible place so as always to encourage you to read it and to pray…”
 

It is very rare to hear Our Lady say, “you must.” She “desires,” “calls,” etc., but on one occasion She used a very strong Croatian verb that means “must”:
 

“…Every family must pray family prayer and read the Bible!…”
(February 14, 1985)

In the Love of Our Lady,

This Bible stand now is in the center of this young family’s home altar, as a living witness of Our Lady’s call “…to be carriers of the Gospel in your families…”
