Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s March 18, 2012
Annual Apparition and Message Given to Mirjana


The Croatian Mass on the night of March 17, 2012 held an enormous crowd that filled the outdoor seating to capacity, as pilgrims flocked to Medjugorje to be present for Mirjana’s annual March 18th apparition the next day. The apparition was to take place at 2:00 p.m.

As early as 8:00 p.m. on the night before the apparition, a small group of Americans were stationed behind Blue Cross in hopes of keeping a good spot for seeing Mirjana and being as close as possible to Our Lady during the apparition. Various pilgrims came to pray the rosary and sing at Blue Cross periodically during the night, but it was the group of American pilgrims who kept watch throughout the entire night and all the way up to apparition time, a full 18 hours later.

It wasn’t until about 6:00 a.m. that more pilgrims began to slowly but steadily trickle in to find a spot around Blue Cross, and by 10:00 a.m. the crowd began growing into the thousands.

An American priest, Fr. Rommel from Louisiana, led a set of all four mysteries of the rosary in the late morning, with individual decades being led by pilgrims in English, Italian, Spanish, and even Latin. Prayer and song continued until the time of Mirjana’s arrival.

Mirjana arrived with a smile on her face, smiling and acknowledging different pilgrims as they greeted her. The emotion of the day quickly overcame her, however, and a few tears fell as she began to kneel for the rosary. During the rosary, Mirjana sighed heavily many times as she prepared for Our Lady’s coming, and a another few tears could be seen rolling down her cheeks before she wiped them away.

When Our Lady came Mirjana greeted Her with great joy, and for a majority of the apparition Mirjana was smiling and joyful, much more so than during her March 2nd, 2012 apparition two weeks prior. A demonic began screaming about midway through the apparition and continued crying out until the apparition was over. After the apparition, as pilgrims were leaving the mountain, a few pilgrims and a priest were helping the woman who was lying down on the side of the street. She was about 60 years old, sweaty, exhausted, and still had a bewildered look on her face.

Mirjana was very expressive, and she extended her hands outwards, with palms turned up, towards Our Lady on two separate occasions during the apparition. The apparition lasted approximately 5 minutes, and as Our Lady left She sent a gentle breeze blowing through the area that blew a sparse, but beautiful flurry of white blossoms from the surrounding trees all throughout the Blue Cross area. Mirjana, resting on her heels bent low and cried for a very short time before dictating the message.

Our Lady also blessed everyone present and all the religious articles brought for blessing.

Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s March 18, 2012
Annual Apparition and Message Given to Mirjana

Dear children! I am coming among you because I desire to be your mother - your intercessor. I desire to be the bond between you and the Heavenly Father - your mediatrix. I desire to take you by the hand and to walk with you in the battle against the impure spirit. My children, consecrate yourselves to me completely. I will take your lives into my motherly hands and I will teach them peace and love, and then I will give them over to my Son. I am asking of you to pray and fast because only in this way will you know how to witness my Son in the right way through my motherly heart. Pray for your shepherds that, united in my Son, they can always joyfully proclaim the Word of God. Thank you.

Is the Impure Spirit the Following?

By A Friend of Medjugorje

An impure spirit of lust

An impure spirit of flesh

An impure spirit of Greed

An impure spirit of Materialism

An impure spirit of Decadence

An impure spirit of Perversity

An impure spirit of Envy

An impure spirit of Anger

An impure spirit of Murder

An impure spirit of Slander

An impure spirit of Vulgarity

An impure spirit of Wantonness

And a hundred more games the impure spirit plays with you in leading the world the impure spirit’s direction. But the above are known to us. What is not apparent to us about the impure spirit? Our Lady said:

“…I will take your lives into my Motherly hands and I will teach them peace and love…”

The key word is “mother.” Many problems of the culture today are blamed on the father in the home, the absence of the father. He is portrayed in most everything as not the one to look to for direction in the family. Some would say, “My father, my husband is not spiritual enough to give good direction.” Our Lady’s words are to teach us and show us what we are blinded to. The father has been made inconsequential by actions of Hollywood, books, laws, the courts, etc. He is consequential only, for example, when the courts side against the father and for the woman, ruling the father as the one responsible, both financially and for restitution, when often the woman made the situation. Honest lawyers will tell you this. The courts show this and this mentality prevails in our culture. Fatherhood has for a long time been under assault.

One might say, “Well, my husband, my children’s father, opted out of being a father, an example, a spiritual leader. That is the point. Our Lady shows in Her message that the father/husband becomes what the culture has portrayed him as. Many mothers in the family are child-centered. Our Lady shows us to mirror Her and Our Heavenly Father’s relationship. You see today She speaks about the bond between you and the Father and then once that relationship is proper, She can hand you over to Her Son. Even Our Lady is not “child centered” but father centered – through that Our Lady shows the best relationship with Her Son that could be. She became “the Mother of God.” Our Lady was chosen because of Her special relationship with the Father. When this is proper in the human family, the mother/wife ‘and’ the children will have the means of peace and love through the father reigning in the home, providing, protecting, the knight of his family to do battle, to lead the battle against the impure spirit. Many a woman would be surprised if they asked their husband the question, “Do I oppress you?” and his “yes” answer. We, through the years, have seen men try to guide, try to lead, who are constantly questioned, having to battle within the family to lead it, who then, through being oppressed in his fatherhood becomes silent, quits leading, turns apathetic and opts out into other things and/or sins. Can this all be blamed on the wife? No, not completely. But the woman plays the greatest role in either supporting or humiliating the husband/father’s guideship. But what if the husband’s attributes are lacking for the wife? A mother who raises her son, imprinting him through her negative actions and witness of how she responded to the boy's father, her husband, who the son now grows up to be a husband and father who lacks the attributes needed to be a good husband and father. A mother plays an incredible part in making the boy into the man he will become, and will either strengthen him in his vocation or cripple him. Yes, ultimately he is responsible because if his mother teaches him badly, he is still responsible to change. But, he will always have to fight and struggle for what the mother did not instill in him, often by not letting the boy’s father be father, by oppressing the father. In turn, she cripples the image of the father in the son, and also the daughter of what the father is to have—the ear of the wife and children to follow his guideship. This is due to an evil impure spirit of Eve in the world today. This impure spirit is in womanhood and leads the world astray because of not being a reflection of what Our Lady is teaching us, that the bond between the mother and the father should be as She says:

“…I desire to be the bond between you and the Heavenly Father – your mediatrix…”

Do not think to yourself this is not what Our Lady is teaching of Her example of Holy submission to the Heavenly Father. It is the impure spirit of Eve to think such, for it was God who told Adam not to eat of the fruit. Adam then told Eve that God the Father said not to eat of the fruit. The devil then told Eve not to listen to Adam, the father of the human race. Adam then listened to the impure spirit of Eve, which then allowed satan to enter the family. The impure spirit broke up the first family, which became infected with jealousy, which led to anger, which led to Cain killing Abel. A tragic mirror of today’s fractured family, that has fractured the world. Our Lady now comes, asking us to:

January 2, 2010

“…set out with me…”

to build in the original image what purity and fatherhood is, so that when the Heavenly Father and Our Lady’s relationship is mirrored in the relationship of the husband and wife, the father and mother, the fruits of the family will be seen.

Fatherhood is in crisis because motherhood is in crisis. All little boys, all little girls, are to be raised to grow up to be fathers and mothers or priests and nuns. The priesthood numbers are increasing worldwide while the religious women, nuns are continuing to dwindle worldwide.* Our Lady tells us that Medjugorje is a road sign. Look, listen, learn the signs. Otherwise you will not know the direction to take on the correct road out of the mess of the impure spirit Eve began and Adam sealed. Remember Eve had fallen, seduced by the devil. From the time Eve bit the apple, that period of time before Adam was seduced ‘by’ Eve, he had not yet broken away from God. Our Lady wants us to have that opportunity, that period of time, that while the world is crashing as we know it, in order to recognize that before the apple reaches Adam’s lips, there is still time for the dagger to strike the impure spirit.

Our Lady is here to perform a extraordinary global exorcism. Fasting and prayer is the only way to “dagger” the impure spirit in the short time that we have. Your protection in the meantime is consecrate yourself “to me completely,” as Our Lady said today.
Now we can grasp more fully the words:

“…I desire to take you by the hand and to walk with you in the battle against the impure spirit…”

To battle the impure spirit, our enemy we are engaged with, we must identify that the list this letter began with is not what we need to teach to identify. As for the beginning list, these are the symptoms of something else. They are the covering behind which to hide the real impure spirit. Who – what is the impure spirit? Can they/it be named? Our Lady wants to teach us what the impure spirit really is and how it fruits into the manifestation of the list of bad fruit. In the letter’s beginning are just such – bad fruit. The impure spirit is the spirit of Eve, and Adam was seduced by the woman. The devil seduced the wife. Through her, he seduced Adam. All other impure spirits flow from this fall. And now we find a demonic spirit in the law that is against nature, in which Catholic Institutions in the United States, along with Catholics, will have to pay for abortion. Why, how can this happen? Georgetown Catholic University recently had a hearing on the healthcare law. A woman student came forward and testified that it was a tragedy that she and other women law students could not afford their four years of contraceptives while at college. She testified before Catholic politician Nancy Pelosi. Then she (the student) testified she could see on the faces of girls on the campus a distraught look because they cannot afford contraceptives! And these women will be lawyers! Judges! Is it any wonder now that our Catholic Institutions are under assault because this girl and others of the like are treated with compassion, given sympathy all under a Catholic University who sponsored the hearing? Is she to be respected, or called what and who she really is? Even the most wild beast has purpose of procreation. What is one who advocates unashamedly on a Catholic campus what even animals do not do? We now are losing our religious liberty because we have a spirit of tolerance for what is unseemly. Read Romans, Chapter One and hear what God says.

The impure spirit of motherhood/wifehood will be changed by our exalting fatherhood, which will lead to the children’s best care and purity, and ‘particularly’ result in leading all to Her Son and to the Heavenly Father. This letter can bring many objections and challenges. All of them are answered in the book, How To Change Your Husband. Read it. Download it free. It is a must read so as to save the family and the world, to “dagger” the impure spirit which has entered into the family when the first bite of the apple was taken, in its origins, to our time now when the apple is being bitten by so many.

With Love for Our Lady,
A Friend of Medjugorje


P.S. A new book is being finished in the next couple of weeks. It is a book you must read to grasp what we are about to go face to face with. Please pray for it and spread it to the bishops when it is published.

Pictures from the March 18, 2012 Annual Apparition of Our Lady to Mirjana


March 18, 2012 Pilgrims praying with Priest

In the early morning hours of March 18, 2012 before the large crowds began arriving, a young priest from the United States leads the Rosary. A group of enthusiastic pilgrims from the United States spent the night at the Blue Cross, awaiting the arrival of Our Lady for 18 hours straight. Though a little stiff and cold from laying on the ground and sitting on rocks, there was no question in any of their minds that it was worth it as they watched with deep emotion Mirjana as she received Our Lady in the apparition this afternoon.


Mirjana arriving

Mirjana was all smiles when she first arrived at the Blue Cross before the apparition today. Mirjana turned 47 today, on her birthday, of March 18, 2012. When her daily apparitions ended on December 25, 1982, Our Lady promised Mirjana that on her birthday each year until her death she would have the gift of seeing Our Lady.


March 18, 2012 Mirjana in Ecstasy


Though Mirjana made an effort to continue smiling at the many pilgrims who surrounded her at the Blue Cross on this afternoon of March 18, 2012, her emotions overcame her and she could not keep the tears from flowing as the anticipation of seeing Our Lady became so great.

Nuns praying, March 18, 2012

A group of nuns from India were present for the apparition near the Blue Cross. The anticipation of Our Lady’s coming was felt in the hearts of all those gathered, and prayer deepened as the time approached.


Mirjana, March 2, 2012

Mirjana lifts her head and suddenly sees Our Lady before her. Her hands are normally together in prayer, and the moment after Our Lady arrives, she spreads them out in a gesture of welcome and honor to Our Lady.


Mirjana, March 18, 2012

As happens during Mirjana’s second of the month apparitions, today on March 18, Mirjana went through a variety of expressions on her face, especially as Our Lady relayed Her message to her.

Mirjana, March 18, 2012


Mirjana, March 18, 2012

Mirjana watches Our Lady ascend back into heaven as the apparition ends. A gentle breeze from Our Lady sent down a sparse shower of white blossoms from the surrounding trees as a kiss goodbye to all the pilgrims, from the sweetest of Mothers to Her “little children.”


Pilgrims listening to Mirjana, March 18, 2012

Pilgrims watch and wait with serious countenances as Mirjana dictates the message Our Lady just gave her. It is a special grace to hear Our Lady’s fresh words just minutes after being in Her physical presence, a grace that will not be available to man forever. Our Lady said on June 23, 1982:

“These apparitions are the last in the world.”


Our Lady's Message being read, March 18, 2012

Mirjana’s translator Miki, reads in Croatian Our Lady’s message of March 18, 2012 to a completely silent crowd of thousands. The world carries on each day amidst a sea of noise that never ceases; yet here in this moment, even if only briefly, God has the ear of His people, and amidst the silent crowd in the quiet whisper of a gentle breeze sends the thunderbolt of Our Lady’s message.


Mirjana speaking to nun, March 18, 2012

Mirjana’s face beams with joy as she speaks directly to one of the nuns from India. In English Mirjana said to this nun very sweetly, with deep emotion and strong gestures – “Please pray for me! I will pray for you! Together we will always pray!”


Pilgrims leaving the apparition, March 18, 2012

Pilgrims descending from the site of the Blue Cross. While many pilgrims spilled very slowly out into the streets, a large number of them stayed and lingered about around the cross, perhaps to grasp at the grace of the apparition a little longer. For some the apparition may be just another neat thing to be a part of, but for others, those truly desiring to live Our Lady’s messages, this moment will become for them a life changing experience.
