    honestly, the only visionary I am interested in is Medjugorje....that's it. I don't need anything else with the Eucharist, Mass, Confession, Rosary and Liturgy of the Hours....I love to delve into saints....Especially this new mellenial Carlos Acutis and apparitions like Fatima, Lourdes, Rue de Bac.....

    the rest is fluff....I might read out of curiosity but I don't delve into it. I even had dinner with visionary Edson Glauber and have been in his presence many times. He seems legit, but some of the messages are off lately.

    CG was invited to the UK decades ago around the start of her 'career' by someone in a prayer group I attended. Another member of that group came from the same part of Ireland and was very impressed. When she next went home she made enquiries and sought an interview with CG and returned very unimpressed and warned us off her. Even at that stage she was living a very elevated lifestyle (architect designed home, fancy cars etc.) for the wife of an army sergeant and many of the locals were suspicious and cynical about her unexplained wealth and that of her family and her liking for clubs and pubs. The high-living continued and was recorded by the Irish press along with claims of pressure to donate large sums for her 'work' by the families of several aged people who had donated all their savings and were refunded only when court action was instituted. The constant appeals for cash are apparently a major feature of her meetings and have put off more than a few. The 'threats' rather than the usual warnings given by visionaries seem to be a unique feature of CG's messages. Her former close assistant/companion, a former nun, has abandoned the cause which says much.

    I was not thinking about funds, but about the content of the messages. And how so many of the alleged prophesies panned out or as they say came to pass.

    Similar accusations were made about the Medjugorje visionaries with regard to making money from those who believed the visionaries. I focused on the alleged messages there too. Thank God Medjugorje doesn't get the same criticism when we read about them here.

    speaking of Medjugorje, I read in Mystic Post that perhaps the Covid virus is the first's an interesting spin....if you read what Mirjana said about the first secret in 1985, in many ways it fits....

    I think the people in Medjugorje realize its gravity because all pilgrims have stopped coming as of March and Mirjana's monthly apparitions ceased. That was a big clue.

    As far as I know, the first and second secrets will be announced before they occur and no announcement was given about the Chinese Virus.

    From :

    Ten days before the first and second events contained in the secrets, Mirjana says she will reveal what is about to happen to Franciscan priest Father Petar Ljubicic of Medjugorje. He will fast and pray for seven days. Then, three days before the event, Father Petar will make a public announcement as to what is to happen and where.

    ok, I thought it was going to be announced before the 3rd secret.....

    All messages were once unapproved by the church. Scripture tells us "do not despise prophecy", which many do. It also say's, For the Lord God does nothing without revealing his plans to his prophets, his servants" Amos 3:7. While one does not have to pray and discern, one at the same time cannot blame God for not doing as he said in sending his messages through his prophets. They are given to warn and prepare. Some will listen, most will not. Either way, God has spoken as he said he would.

    Your post is how I also understand the Medjugorje secrets will be revealed. I was thinking earlier about all this, and some believe the second secret may be announcing the Illumination/Warning.

    Then when you think how in Scripture it says when the day of the Lord comes, it will be like a thief in the night. People will be eating and drinking and marrying etc., as normal when that time comes. Just as they were at the time of Noah and at the time of Sodom and Gomorrah.

    Well, it seems to me life is not normal while we have this Covid with the lock downs and Churches not able (or willing?) to minister as normal. So I wonder if while this pandemic/plandemic is in force, can we maybe be led to consider the Warning/Illumination is not about to happen until after all this has passed. Otherwise how can the scripture be fulfilled should this happen at this time.

    Has anyone got any ideas on this possibility.

    I find this very interesting since the nun I referred to while back while I lived in Palm Bch. Gardens, FL, (she also was from Ireland) who knew Christina whom she met in Medjugorje and wrote to her very often, told me that Christina's husband was a plumber (at least that's what I remember as this was about 20 years ago) and that she lived very humbly in a little house in Ireland with her husband, Paddy, and two children. I don't know where these stories come from, but I do know that this nun would not lie to me about Christina. There are other stories I could relate regarding her, but do not want to cause more problems here on this thread as so many are against Christina. So, I will just be silent!

    At the time that CG came to a local parish in the UK to give a talk which I attended (probably late '80's) she herself said, in my presence, that her husband was a sergeant in the Irish Army. I can promise you that this is true. He may well have become a plumber after leaving the army, I don't know.

    As to where the stories come from, that would be the Irish newspapers who have done numerous stories about the many luxurious properties that CG has occupied and the several court cases about claims of duress by the families of elderly donors. Most of these were available for viewing on the net until a year or two ago but have been recorded on this site

    In the short video below Mirjana explains that she has chosen Father Ljubicic to announce the secrets to, however she states that it is up to Father to pray about revealing the secrets, and that she can not say one way or another whether father will reveal the secrets, because Father must pray and obey what he receives from Our Lord and Our Lady in regards to revealing them or not.

    I did not know that Mirjana's monthly apparitions had ended. I don't really follow Medjugorje closely, but it seems a bit strange that the apparitions ceased when the pilgrims stopped coming. (n)

    The 2nd of the month messages stopped on 2nd March.

    Pilgrims were still going to Medjugorje then when it was announced the messages on 2nd were to stop.

    The message on the 25th of the month continue.

    yes, the Blessed Mother announced the 2nd of the month messages would stop. Pilgrims were still there at the time. Then the lockdown ensued shortly I thought that was telling. It happened before the lockdown in Bosnia Herzegovina...
