Medjugorje visionary, Marija, displays joy on her face after seeing Our Lady on Her birthday. She shares here what Our Lady did in the apparition today, August 5, 2009. While at Caritas in Alabama for a wedding of one of the Caritas Community couples this past February, Marija commented that it is strange to watch herself get older every year, but Our Lady never gets older, Her face is always youthful, the only difference is that She grows more beautiful everyday.

Today, August 5, 2009, would have been a beautiful day regardless of the weather simply because it was Our Lady’s birthday, however, as Our Lady is always a giver of gifts even though it is Her birthday She arranged to have the weather cool off. Yesterday brought storms, rain showers and unseasonably cool weather that carried on throughout today. It felt like a typical breezy spring or fall day, and the rain had brought refreshment to this very arid time of the year for Medjugorje.
 

The apparition of Marija took place just outside of Medjugorje, in an Italian community. As the Joyful mysteries of the Rosary began, an Italian priest prayed the first decade, followed by Marija who prayed the second decade in her mother tongue, Croatian. The next decade was prayed by another Italian priest, and again Marija took the 4th decade. But before the 5th decade would begin, Our Lady surprised everyone when She interrupted the decade Marija was praying and appeared ten minutes early, at 6:30 p.m., instead of Her regular time of 6:40 p.m., for five minutes. Our Lady gave no explanation, but it was thought that because the pilgrims had to travel a short distance to return back to the Church, perhaps She appeared early to give time for everyone to be back in time for Holy Mass.
