Our Lady informed Mirjana today during the apparition that she will no longer appear to her on the 2nd of each month. We are all sad to know this, but we trust in Our Lady’s plans and we can all pray for Mirjana as she adjusts to this new reality. We all have deep gratitude to Mirjana for sharing her apparitions and the messages for all these years. The apparitions in Medjugorje began in 1981. You can read more about them here. These are significant times we are living in. As of right now, Our Lady continues to appear to Marija on the 25th of each month. Mirjana will now see Our Lady only twice a year, on her annual March 18th visitation and on Christmas Day with the other 4 visionaries.
Here is the message Mirjana received today, during her Yearly Apparition on March 18, 2020:
Dear children,My Son, as God, always looked above time. I, as His mother, through Him, see in time. I see beautiful and sad things. But I see that there is still love, and that it needs doing for it to be known.
My children, you cannot be happy if you do not love each other, if you do not have love in every situation and at every moment of your life.
Also, I, as a mother, am coming to you through love-to help you to come to know true love, to come to know my Son. This is why I am calling you, always anew, to thirst all the more for love, faith, and hope. The only spring from which you can drink is trust in God, my Son.
My children, in moments of peacelessness and renunciation you just seek the face of my Son. You just live His words and do not be afraid. Pray and love with sincere feelings, with good works; and help so that the world may change and that my heart may win.
Like my Son, I am also saying to you: love each other because without love there is no salvation.
Thank you, my children.
What this means for Medjugorje will unfold for us in the coming days. As sojourners in a foreign land, it would seem the consolations of Our Lord are beginning to be pulled back. The history of the saints has shown us it is in precisely these times of dimming consolation, where our hearts begin to feel the abandonment of the Lord on the cross most profoundly, that we are called upon most powerfully to example the grace of the Holy Spirit given to us all. We must unite our hearts to God’s Divine Will and extend His Love and Mercy to those in most need of His saving grace.
Let us continue to pray for each other and love one another because, as Our Lady said, “without love there is no salvation.”
