Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s August 2, 2013
Apparition and Message Given to Mirjana on the Day for Nonbelievers


Yesterday on August 1, 2013, anxious to get the best seat in which to see Mirjana and be close to Our Lady during the August 2, 2013 apparition to Mirjana, the first two pilgrims arrived at the Blue Cross at 2:30 p.m. to spend the night in preparation for Our Lady. These two American pilgrims were joined by another 15 American pilgrims by 6:00 p.m., and the slow trickle of “early bird” pilgrims continued for a few more hours. By morning there were thousands and thousands of pilgrims covering the mountain, many of whom were youth who were in Medjugorje to also participate in the Youth Festival. Several flags from different countries waived high in the air as the youth showed their patriotic love for their nations. Mirjana arrived with a smile on her face but very quickly entered into the seriousness of preparing for Our Lady. She shed a few tears while praying the rosary before her face lit up with joy at the arrival of Our Lady. The apparition lasted approximately 5 minutes, and the mountain was completely silent until the end of the apparition when many in the crowd, perhaps involuntarily, cried “Oh!” as they saw Mirjana’s face turn upward signaling the departure of Our Lady.
 

“Dear children; If only you would open your hearts to me with complete trust, you would comprehend everything. You would comprehend with how much love I am calling you; with how much love I desire to change you, to make you happy; with how much love I desire to make you followers of my Son and give you peace in the fullness of my Son. You would comprehend the immeasurable greatness of my motherly love. That is why, my children, pray because through prayer your faith grows and love is born, the love along which even the cross is not unendurable because you do not carry it alone. In union with my Son you glorify the name of the Heavenly Father. Pray, pray for the gift of love, because love is the only truth: it forgives everything, it serves everyone and it sees a brother in everyone. My children, my apostles, great is the trust that the Heavenly Father has given you through me, His handmaid, to help those who do not know Him, that they may reconcile with Him and follow Him. That is why I am teaching you to love, because only if you have love will you be able to respond to Him. Again I am calling you to love your shepherds and to pray that, at this difficult time, the name of my Son may be glorified under their guidance. Thank you.”

Our Lady's Apparition August 2, 2013

A mother with her young daughter at the site of the Blue Cross on Apparition Mountain in Medjugorje the night of August 1, 2013, awaiting Our Lady’s apparition to Mirjana the next morning. “Camping out” is often an activity of the young, whether it be sleeping in sleeping bags in the living room of their home, or in a tent in the backyard, or camping with the family. These memories stay with us for our entire lives—the sights, the sounds, the smells. What will this young girl remember of this night spent on rocky ground, surrounded by people who speak other languages that she does not understand, snuggled close to her mother who reads to her of these holy events that they are blessed to be able to experience together? Our Lady said,
 

August 25, 1996

“…Teach your children, because if you are not an example to them, children depart into godlessness…”
 

If you cannot bring your children to Medjugorje, next second of the month, have a vigil “campout” in your own home. Spread your sleeping bags by Our Lady’s statue in your home with your children. Light candles. Read stories. Talk about the grace-filled events taking place in their lifetime. Find what time of the day or night the apparition is taking place and gather them on their knees to ask Our Lady’s blessing wherever you may be. They will remember this time when they grow older—this time with you, this time with their Heavenly Mother.

With the Youth Festival many young priests are present in Medjugorje who have accompanied youth groups. Here are three priests, from three different orders, who gathered early this morning, August 2, 2013, to be in Our Lady’s presence with tens of thousands of other pilgrims. Many, many young priests around the world today received their vocation through Medjugorje. They often will come to Medjugorje after their ordination to say a Mass in St. James Church in thanksgiving to Our Lady for inspiring them to accept their calling and for accompanying them on their way.

Concerning the youth, Our Lady said,
 

August 15, 1988

“…pray for the young people; talk with them. Young people find themselves now in a very difficult situation. Help each other. I think about you in a special way, dear children. Young people have a role to play in the Church now…”
 

This message was given 15 years ago, and the situation with the youth has gotten much worse. Who can deny that satan has been very successful in diverting today’s youth in Christian families away from God, away from Truth and holiness, away from salvation? Our Lady has said to Mirjana that when you pray for unbelievers, you are praying for your own future. The millions of youth who are being educated and influenced towards godlessness will one day hold positions in every walk of life—from politics, to heads of corporations, to classroom teachers, to physicians and scientists. They will be the ones making decisions over what will be allowed and not allowed in the culture. Heed the words of Our Lady and look for opportunities to involve yourselves in the lives of the youth around you.

Our Lady's Apparition August 2, 2013

Upon seeing Medjugorje visionary Mirjana arrive at the Blue Cross this morning, August 2, 2013, a woman begins to cry. The visionaries are the flesh and blood reality of these apparitions of Our Lady. They are the witnesses and when someone has the opportunity to be near them while they receive Our Lady in an apparition, it satisfies a little bit the human and spiritual longing that is in all of us—that even while we are among billions of people in the world today, I’m not just a number to God. God knows me, sees me, loves me.

Who do you say that I am? This question Jesus asked of His apostles could be asked of each of us in regards to Medjugorje and is the question that seems to veil the faces of these youth as they peer into the face of Mirjana before the moment Our Lady arrives. Is this true? Is this real? Do you really see the Virgin Mary? Has She really come to help us? To Jesus’ question, Simon Peter simply states, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus says, “Blessed are you, Simon Peter! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.” On June 26, 1981, the third day of the apparitions in Medjugorje the visionaries requested a sign for those who don’t see Our Lady to prove that the apparition was really Her. Our Lady responded:


"Blessed are those who have not seen and who believe."


Mirjana asked: "Who are you?" Our Lady responded:

"I am the Blessed Virgin Mary."

Mirjana lifts her head and smiles indicating to all around her that Our Lady is there present before her. Silence quickly spreads over the mountain

“Our Lady’s messages keep telling us today, now is the time of grace, now is the time of preparation. Will we be strong enough? Who is Our Lady speaking to when She keeps telling us, “Decide for God”? We must ask ourselves how much we are holding back. It is we who have been reading Her messages to whom She keeps saying, “Decide for God,” is it not? We must without reserve decide for God and be willing to abandon all our miserable interests. Our Lady is building an ark. It is Medjugorje. It is our protection….Watching the ark float away is not the best time to decide for God. Decide for God today.”

From A Friend of Medjugorje’s writing, “Little Things Make Us Able to Do Great Things”

Another apparition of the Virgin Mary has come and gone, another message given, but to the vast majority of Catholics and Christians, Medjugorje is not even on their radar. Our Lady said on March 2, 2013:


“…Do you repent for not having accepted the message?...”
 

A Friend of Medjugorje recently addressed these words of Our Lady.

“Those who pass off, discount, minimize, or show reservation about Our Lady and Her messages because it is not necessary for salvation are contradicted by Our Lady’s call to repent for not having accepted the messages. These apparitions are the last, are the most important in the world, and are necessary for the world’s salvation. You do not have to repent for that which you need not repent. Our Lady makes it clear to all, clear to the Church. Do not reject me. Do not ignore my Medjugorje apparitions. Our Lady said:
 

November 2, 2010

“…Do not reject me, my children…”
 

March 18, 1996

“…Do not reject from yourself the name of God, that you may not be rejected. Accept my messages that you may be accepted…””

From A Friend of Medjugorje’s writing “Be Warned”
Volume #211 Words of the Harvesters
  Our Lady's apparition August 2, 2013

Tens of thousands leave the Blue Cross after Mirjana’s apparition this morning. Many will leave Medjugorje without having a clear understanding of what She is calling them to. But there will be those whose lives have been changed forever, who have discovered the call of Our Lady and have said “yes” to Her.

 

December 25, 1999

“…Through your ‘yes’ for peace and your decision for God, a new possibility for peace is opened…”
 

October 25, 1996

“…Through you, I wish to renew the world…”
 

June 2, 2007

“…Through you I will triumph…”
