    Historically, The Blessed Mother appeared somewhere and provided a sign and imparted some messages and then left. I find difficult to understand why she might appear daily at the same location for decades.

    Maybe because she knew we were going into the unprecedented 'end times' and needed an unprecedented set of apparitions for spiritual help? Just a theory...

    Julia Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.

    May be if enough of us had listened to her, we wouldn't be in the sorry state the world is in right not.

    Like stubborn self willed children who refuse to do as they are told, a mother will keep repeating her warnings. Do as you are told!

    And when all the chips are down, what will we say to our God at our judgement if we failed to keep Faith, after all He has done to warn us.

    That is how I see Medugorje.

  4. I think that the Virgin Mary is appearing for so long to get everyone in the right place spiritually for the Triumph of her Immaculate Heart. The six seers have been tested over and over again by scientists with the results being that they are normal. None of the six have ever denied their experiences even when threatened with prison, their parents were threatened with being fired from jobs and incarceration. It is thought that a nuclear exchange in the 1980's was avoided because of the prayers and penances that believers prayed because of the Virgin Mary's urging. Just look through the messages she was giving before the March 25, 1984 consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary that Pope John Paul II performed with bishops throughout the world
    Sunday, January 8, 1984 (Feast of the Epiphany)

Then say the Creed and the prayer to the Holy Spirit. And, if it is possible, it would be well to pray a Rosary."

    "Pray, because prayer is very necessary to you. With prayer, your body and soul will find peace. There are some young people who have consecrated themselves to me. But there are in the parish, some persons, who have not entirely given themselves. As soon as Mass has ended, they are in a hurry to leave the church. That is not good. That way they will never be able to give themselves completely It is not good for them to linger about the church. One must be pious and set a good example for others, in order to awaken in them the faith. It is necessary to pray as much as possible while offering your heart. They should consecrate themselves in order to become truly better."

    In very cold weather and an icy wind:
    "The wind is my sign. I will come in the wind. When the wind blows, know that I am with you. You have learned that the Cross represents Christ; it is a sign of Him. It is the same for the crucifix you have in your home. For me, it is not the same. When it is cold, you come to church, you want to offer everything to God. I am, then, with you. I am with you in the wind. Do not be afraid."

    Friday, February 17, 1984

Be content with prayer, I your Mother, will take care of the rest."

    Thursday, March 1, 1984
    "Dear children, today I ask you to read the Bible in your homes, every day. Put it in a very visible place in your home, that way it will encourage all to prayer.

    Today, a beautiful and thought provoking message from Our Blessed Mother of Medjugorje...

    July 25, 2020 "Dear children! In this peaceless time in which the devil is harvesting souls to draw them to himself, I am calling you to persevering prayer, so that in prayer you discover the God of love and hope. Little children, take the Cross in your hands. May it be your encouragement for love to always win, in a special way now when the Cross and faith are rejected. You be a reflection and an example with your lives that faith and hope are still alive and a new world of peace is possible. I am with you and intercede for you before my Son, Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call." 07/25/2020

    To Ivan in the seminary: "The sign will be given at the end of the apparitions."
    Ivan: When will that be? "You are impatient, my angel. Go in the peace of God."

    Thursday, September 3, 1981
    Jakov: When will the sign which was announced come?
    "Again, a little patience."


    Patience is a virtue, Possess it if you can. T'is seldom found in women But never in a man!

    I wonder how his patience is after 40 years! :LOL::D

    I had a dream last night, I believe it concerned one of the Secrets.

    I was above an Ocean, I believe it was the Pacific and the waters were roiling and in tumult like a washing machine and I heard the word 'Earthquake!'

    Then I heard the word , 'Repeat' and I realised that these quakes would be like nothing ever since before in history, quakes that would keep happening over and over again like drum beats and that the world would watch astounded.

    I told you about the dream I had in 2009 where I saw that roiling turmoil in the sky and in the sea. "Like a washing machine" absolutely describes it. I have struggled to adequately describe it but that phrase nails it. It repeated 3 times. Just like your dream "repeat"---:(

    Perhaps the times are coming when almost as interesting as the Supernatural events to come will be the weird and bottom of the barrel type , 'Explanations' unbelievers in the Media and Scientific community will dream up.:):)
    Fun, fun, fun...I'm quite looking forward to these.;)

    Yes the voice that said , 'Repeat' several times sounded very strong indeed. But it said another word as well several times which I just clean forget.

    It's lovely to get confirmation from someone else. I must look up underwater seismic disturbances to see what effect they have on the seas.

    I AM IN MEDJUGORJE!!
    I have offered prayers for all on the Forum while we visited the house Vicka lived in. We took a few minutes for group prayer in the room she had over 1000 apparitions. It still has her original crucifix & 4foot statue of the Sacred Heart. She is not in town.
    We are going to the Blue Cross Friday or tomorrow. I will be leaving a couple of sealed envelopes there.

    The Vatican has told the visionaries not to meet with anyone for now. To clarify, they have been told not to give talks for the time being.

    That is quite strange. I didn't realize the Vatican had control of the Visionaries, especially since Medjugorje is not officially approved.

    Enjoy your Holiday!!!:D:)

    In an interview conducted by a priest a day after a vision in which she was shown the first secret, Mirjana, the first seer to obtain all ten secrets, said the first occurrence "will be something that [people] hear [about] very far" and added that people would not race to the place where the first one occurs because "surely no one wishes to watch disasters, distress, and misfortune. I don't think that this sort of thing attracts people at all. Why would people go to see something of that sort? It is one thing to go and see a sign, quite another to go and see suffering or a disaster. Who would, for example, go to Italy to see a dam collapse?" She said the first secret needs nothing to precede it and will "abundantly speak for itself." She said that people in Medjugorje "will know immediately that it is in connection with the secrets." It will be something, she said, "that everyone, everywhere, will immediately hear about."
