Medjugorje visionary Marija in ecstasy
Medjugorje visionary Marija speaks about Our Lady's apparition in the field of apparitions
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.

February 25, 2011

“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…”

Thank you very much Mother Mary for the gift to my daughter on her 14th birthday The gift to experience the most awesome and inspiring gift of being with you in the bedroom during your apparition to Marija. The joy in her smile, her eyes and her voice when I hear her tell about her experience is the most wonderful feeling I could feel as a mother. Knowing Mother Mary touched her heart the way she did that night brings tears of joy to my eyes everytime I think about it. God Bless!

Too bad i didn't go that day. The person in the seventh picture is my Aunt. But i only live 10 minutes away from the field and it's always a joy to come, pray, and play with other kids with my cousins. even though i'm 12, it's always good to show Our Lady love.

Beautiful and inspirational. Flying is not a priority in our lives, however, to experience what we saw on this web site is encouraging for us to make a flight to wherever Our Lady is appearing. Please keep us informed so we too, have the option to experience these messages in real life. Our Lady of Peace, pray for us and our family. Thank you! Dianna

I wanted to be in Caritas, God & the Blessed Mother had other plans for me. I follow the happenings on the website but not the detailed daily itinerary. On 3/21 I was prayerfully working in my veg garden when I had a strong urge to dig my Mary garden. With the coaching of the Holy Spirit I did just that and Mary's Garden was dug without taking measurements. I placed the stones along the edge, with one stone left over. I was happy and surprised that it was Grotto day in Caritas. God is so Good!

Just returned home and wished so much I could have stayed longer. We were there for the miracle of the sun on March 20th and witnessed the miracle of the sun at Mary's apparition time in New Iberia on the way home. It was wonderful! I looked at my pictures in my camera on returning home, and it appears to be raining host. This was my second time with our Lady and won't be my last. This only strengthened my faith even more. Thanks Marija and Caritas
Plainfield, Illinois - USA
I was called to come here, and, not knowing what to expect, I made plans (took off work, booked the hotel, etc). As the time neared to come, things started to happen to keep me away. So I told Our Mother, "If you want us to go, please let us go" leaving it in her hands. Wow! I am so glad we came! Our Lord said, "You can tell a tree by it fruits." The fruits here are amazing. So is the tree. Thank you, Caritas for this wonderful experience!
St Lucie, Florida - USA
I was in Caritas w/ Pilgrims from Miami. There is no greater blessing then to be on Holy Ground when Our Lady and Our Lord Jesus is visiting. I was blessed with their presence. I didn't see them with my eyes but felt their presence with my heart and mind. I feel so blessed to have received such a beautiful gift. Caritas, you have brought so many people back to Our Lord, the fruits of you obeying Our Lady's "yes" is truly evident in your works! May Our Lady continue to guide and bless you!

Plainfield, Illinois - USA
I came to Caritas with my wife. I was skeptical at first. On the first day I was given the grace to see what the community is really about. I saw how beautiful it truly is. As a person still in my own way coming back to the church, this has been an amazing journey. On the second and third days I, like many others was given the gift of The Miracle of the Sun. Showing how incredibly blessed Caritas is. How as a community in faith to Our Blessed Mother, has lead to the conversion of so many souls.
