In Medjugorje, thousands were gathered, even some climbing trees and walls at the last moment, to get a glimpse of Mirjana while seeing Our Lady, recalling, in Scripture, Zaccheus climbing the tree to see Jesus. Hungry eyes and spirits to witness Mirjana’s annual March 18th apparition. The holy ground of Medjugorje heard rosary after rosary prayed accompanied by singing in preparation for the Medjugorje apparition.

Mirjana arrived at the Blue Cross at approximately 1:38 p.m. The apparition lasted five minutes from 1:50 p.m. to 1:54 p.m. Mirjana’s head was bent in prayer, as she joined all those gathered in the Rosary, suddenly looked up and a huge smile appeared on her face as she saw Our Lady. Her hands were clasped in prayer and she moved her lips in conversation with Our Lady. Her emotions ranged from smiles to concentrated seriousness to tears during her encounter with Our Lady. A couple of times Medjugorje visionary, Mirjana, shrugged her shoulders. Throughout her apparition, her hands would be open and then clasped in prayer. As Our Lady left, she again clasped her hands and bowed her head back down as she was before the apparition. Mirjana then bent down in tears.

Immediately after the apparition, there were cries and exclamations as people turned towards the sun and saw it spinning. A couple of minutes after the apparition, Mirjana dictated the words from Our Lady and they were written down.

As the thousands tried to make their way down from the apparition, there was more than a sea of people, a scene right out of the Bible. Down the path from Blue Cross and the streets beyond all one could see was people. To see, to witness, to be in Medjugorje, is to feel the Bible in one’s soul.

Mirjana’s Annual March 18, 2010 Message

“Dear children! Today I call you to love with all your heart and with all your soul. Pray for the gift of love, because when the soul loves it calls my Son to itself. My Son does not refuse those who call Him and who desire to live according to Him. Pray for those who do not comprehend love, who do not understand what it means to love. Pray that God may be their Father and not their Judge. My children, you be my apostles, be my river of love. I need you. Thank you.”

Mirjana added, "Our Lady was joyful. She blessed all those present and all the religious articles brought for blessing."


Mirjana during her annual apparition, March 18, 2010

Another March 18th, another birthday for Mirjana marking each year of Our Lady’s apparitions in Medjugorje, as well as the passage of time towards the fulfillment of Our Lady’s plans through the coming of the secrets. Pilgrims in Medjugorje often have the same reaction, after Our Lady leaves, as the apostles and disciples did looking up in the sky at Jesus’ departure in his ascension into heaven.

“…as they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight… they were gazing into heaven as he went…” Acts 1:10-11

The last words of Jesus, before His ascension,

“…you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses…” Acts 1:8

It is Our Lady’s call today, go and be a witness and carry the love of Her Son through the ends of the earth

October 25, 2005

“…open your hearts and be witnesses of my presence…”

Scene after the apparition

Speaking with Caritas community members in Medjugorje just after today’s apparition, their voices portrayed excitement as they described the “river of people” they saw, thousands and thousands of pilgrims, who were present today for Mirjana’s March 18th apparition. It was a beautiful image with Our Lady’s words today, knowing in a few days these thousands will leave Medjugorje, as a river, to flow out into the world, carrying Our Lady’s love.

“Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.” Revelation 22:1-2

More pictures below the following writing

The following was taken from A Friend of Medjugorje’s writing, “I Don’t Have to Go to Medjugorje.” Reasons Why One Must Go to Medjugorje.” It’s in direct reference to Our Lady’s message today and the above scripture quote from Revelation.

Is it not enough to know Our Lady is giving messages which are issued from the throne of God itself which are crystal clear, a river of life-giving water?

July 25, 1985

“…Today, I am calling you to listen to my messages and then you will be able to live everything that God tells me to convey to you…”

God’s will is being manifested in a place Our Lady said She chose Herself and in a people that She said are a chosen people. It is Our Lady who has established the oasis of the new time – a “Jerusalem” of the latter times. This is a village where it is Her expressed desire that all peoples of the earth, all nations come to receive the medicine for all the nations which She dispenses through Her monthly messages. A monthly message which is given out once each month, twelve times a year, that She, Herself, said are conveyed from God, which produces fruit twelve times a year.

The Virgin Mary tells us to go to Sacred Scripture to discover the true reason for Her coming here, to discover the message for you! St. Louis De Montfort longed for it! He called it not the end of time, but the latter times! Go read Sacred Scripture to find the true reason Our Lady is coming. Go to the last book of the Bible. Go to that book’s last chapter. Then go to the last five verses of the chapter and find what the latter part of Scripture says. You will discover the last five verses of the Bible before the epilogue, John’s last words of Revelation; the description of our time, of what lay hidden for ages, come to life in what you are about to see, that which the saints and prophets longed for, is unlocked and revealed after two thousand years. The last words of the Bible:

Revelation 22:1-2

“The angel then showed me the river of life-giving water clear as crystal, which issued from the throne of God and of the lamb, and flowed down the middle of the streets. On either side of the river grew the trees of life which produced fruit twelve times a year, one each month; the leaves served as medicine for the nations.”

Mirjana during her annual apparition, March18, 2010

The petitions of all those who sent them through, as well as all of Caritas of Birmingham supporters, were gathered and present at the foot of the Blue Cross at the site of Our Lady’s apparition to Mirjana, today, March 18, 2010. It brings Our Lady great joy to have your hearts present in Her apparitions, even if only through your written letters to Her in your petitions

Mirjana during her annual apparition,March18,2010

Mirjana is overcome with emotion at the end of Our Lady’s apparition, March 18, 2010. Today is Mirjana’s 45th birthday. It is important to understand that Mirjana does not receive the apparition on March 18th because it is her birthday, but rather because Our Lady told Mirjana this day holds a great significance because of a future event that will happen on that day, that we cannot know at this time. Give Mirjana a birthday gift of your prayers today. She carries a very heavy burden in knowing what awaits those who remain closed to Our Lady’s call. All the visionaries should be remembered in our prayers.

Mirjana during her annualapparition, March18,2010

One must understand how significant every message is, not only for just the present, but to be remembered throughout eternity. Why? Because many souls will be rescued from going to hell. They will help populate Heaven. Many around the world testify they were headed to hell and Our Lady and the Medjugorje messages saved them. You think they would ever forget the particular message which helped them gain eternity? Not a chance.

What you witness in seeing in this photograph, Miki, the translator writing for the world what Mirjana just heard, from the Holy Virgin Mary, for eternity, the message the whole world waits for and many, who are hell-bent, will read in the years to come and be saved. Saved by realizing they can truly have a Father or a Judge.

History. Eternal history, being made, is in our midst.

With Love for the Father,

Friend of Medjugojre

I was very moved to see that Our Lady visited on March 18, Mirjana's birthday. This day, March 18, 2010, my 93 year old mother passed away holding my hand. She told me Jesus was here, as well as Our Lady holding the infant, the cherubs and archangels. I sent with her my prayers to lay at Jesus' feet for my children. She died peacefully as I gave her hand to Jesus and Mary. Now more than ever March 18th is extremely significant to me and my family. Pray, fast, convert. Jesus and Mary are waiting.

Sunday noon -- March 21st I just linked into the March 18th message and photos of Mirjana this noon hour. The message I was aware of and sent it on to many friends a few days ago. As for your photos, reads, explanations, this particular message and apparition was very special for me. I felt like I was in our Lady's presence with Mirjana given the way she was photographed face first. Was that her husband next to her (shaved head)? Hard to believe she is 45.Any children. Thanks.

Thank you! The article was very moving. My wife was fortunate enough to be there, but sadly we didn't have enough for both of us. However, I truly believe in our Lady's apparitions, but most of all I believe in her messages, they truly touch my heart. I will continue to recite the holy rosary and pray not just for me and my family, but for those in need of physical and spiritual healing. I will pray for the gift of God's love that I may share with others. Happy brithday, Mirjana! JHF

Thank u for all ur efforts. I would like to share with a significant event that happened in Lebanon. The government assigned the 25 of march a holy day for Christians and Muslims. So we will celebrate the event of apparition of angel Gabriel to our Lady in prayer. I think this a concrete fact of the union that our Lady is planning to do for all nations and All religions to save all her children.

Thank you Marjana, and to all who it took to get the message to us and to get our petitions to the Blessed Mother. My eyes are still wet with tears, tears of joy and love, and grace. God bless you all, my family in Christ! That is the part that touches me the most, how our Mother is bringing us all together. There was a time I felt alone, and sad. I do not ever feel that way all these years. Thank you Blessed Mother! I love you!

God Bless, you Mirjana on your Birthday and beyond! My prayers are with you. I too was filled with emotion in reading and praying over this beautiful message....and paused in tears before I even finished reading. The very "words from heaven" reach the soul! The flowing river of people was so inspirational, joyful, and peaceful. Thank you Caritas for being there for us always - and in all ways. I pray that people continue to support your efforts. Love - Linda

Thank you for placing our petitions before Our Lady. I did not get to read the message She gave before leaving today. But when I got home and read it, I found that it must have been received subconsciously, because Divine Love had been the constant theme of my prayers all day, and I had peacefully commited myself to it. It would seem that the petitions in Our Lady's presence during the Apparition were much as though we were there, in spirit. Again, thank you for this kindness.

Who would have ever imagined when I was a child, not Catholic at the time, that I would one day be able to sit in front of a screen and keyboard, write some prayers from my heart, and in just a few hours have those prayers in the presence of the Holy Mother of God! Who would have also ever thought that I would have also met my now husband in the same way through Catholic Match just one year ago! Who also would have ever thought that both of these miracles would come together at Caritas 7/4/09!!

I feel blessed just to read what happened today with Our Lady. It shows us that Jesus loves us very much to send His mother to send these prophetic messages to us. He and His mother loves us dearly and this is testament of their love.

Just before opening the message, I pray to God to let the Holy Spirit open my mind and my heart to understand the message Our Lady wanted to give me. It is amazing to discover that I was praying for Love for me and for others, because the world needs LOVE.

Thank you for getting Our Lady's message out so fast! This is the perfect message for the United States right now with passage of an abominable piece of legislation being imminent. I feel like some of our congressmen are selling their souls to get this bill passed. Surely Our Lady is asking us to pray for their conversion right now. Could Caritas request prayers that this legislation fail like you alerted everyone a few weeks ago to pray that the predicted tsunamis would fail?

It is such a blessing having Our Lady's messages transmitted so quickly. The pictures of the pilgrims bring me right back to my pilgrimage last summer. A pilgrimage made possible by the wonderful generosity of dear friends. I am filled with emotion at seeing so many faithful people and the images of Mirjana and will pray for the conversion of the world with renewed inspiration. May God Bless and provide for the continuing work of the Caritas Community.
