Pilgrims recite the consecration of the family in the field of apparitions

Tonight’s apparition was in the Bedroom of Apparitions. Our Lady came at 6:40 p.m. and the apparition lasted for over four minutes. Throughout the afternoon pilgrims came to visit and pray in the Bedroom, leaving not only their prayers and petitions, but their very hearts on the Bed knowing Our Lady would be appearing in a few short hours and wanting their love waiting there for Our Lady upon Her arrival. Six or seven priests were present in the apparition tonight. After the Rosary was prayed, the Consecration for the Family was recited, both in the Field and in the Bedroom, just before Our Lady came in the apparition. Our Lady was strongly felt in the apparition by many who were present in the room. Following is Marija’s description of the apparition:

“During the apparition when Our Lady came, I recommended to Our Lady all of us, all our intentions and Our Lady prayed over us and She blessed us all. She didn’t give some special message, but we always said the presence of Our Lady is the most beautiful message. So also tonight Our Lady came and I don’t know how long She stayed, but She prayed over us and She blessed us. This is all.”

Immediately upon relaying the above to all those in the house, Marija walked to the Field to speak to all the pilgrims, also to tell them about the apparition. Following is what she said:

“We just finished praying with Our Lady and I came to say that Our Lady blessed also all you. And I prayed and asked blessing for all you who are here praying. And for all your objects a blessing. So Our Lady prayed for us a long time and after She blessed us. She didn’t give a special message but She have one surprise for us. Tomorrow Our Lady comes here! Probably She missed you.”
Marija said that Our Lady desired to appear in the Field tomorrow, at the same time, 6:40 p.m. Though this concluded the day’s events, many pilgrims wanted to linger in the Field. Songs were sung for more than an hour, under a starry sky on a mild, spring night. It was a beautiful sight.

Today, March 21, 2011, was Grotto Day. This penitential climb is part of making a pilgrimage to Caritas. It is a help to receiving the grace that opens the heart. Many people have told us over the years that the challenging climb up to the Grotto was one of the richest experiences of their life. They see so many parallels to the spiritual life when they are making this climb.

the Tabernacle of Our Lady's Messages

Each morning, all the pilgrims gather in front of the Tabernacle of Our Lady’s Messages for announcements and talks. The weather has been beautiful, blue skies and warm temperatures. Those who have come from states in which winter is still very much present, this week in Alabama with Our Lady has been a week of spring for everyone, and a week of conversion.

“Dear children! Nature is awakening and on the trees the first buds are seen which will bring most beautiful flowers and fruit. I desire that you also, little children, work on your conversion and that you be those who witness with their life, so that your example may be a sign and an incentive for conversion to others…”
