Annual Apparition of Our Lady to Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo on March 18, 2011
The visionary Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo had daily apparitions from June 24th 1981 to December 25th 1982. During the last daily apparition, Our Lady gave her the 10th secret, and told her that she would appear to her once a year, on the 18th of March. It has been this way through the years. Several thousand pilgrims gathered in prayer of the Rosary at the ‘Blue Cross’. The apparition lasted from 13:46 to 13:50.
“Dear children! I am with you in the name of the greatest Love, in the name of dear God, who has come close to you through my Son and has shown you real love. I desire to lead you on the way of God. I desire to teach you real love so that others may see it in you, that you may see it in others, that you may be a brother to them and that others may see a merciful brother in you. My children, do not be afraid to open your hearts to me. With motherly love, I will show you what I expect of each of you, what I expect of my apostles. Set out with me. Thank you.”
On the 2nd of each month, Our Lady appears to the Medjugorje visionary Mirjana, to give us her message to the world. Below is the latest official English translation as provided by the Information Center in Medjugorje.
Message of March 2, 2011:
“Dear children; My motherly heart suffers tremendously as I look at my children who persistently put what is human before what is of God; at my children who, despite everything that surrounds them and despite all the signs that are sent to them, think that they can walk without my Son. They cannot! They are walking to eternal perdition. That is why I am gathering you, who are ready to open your heart to me, you who are ready to be apostles of my love, to help me; so that by living God’s love you may be an example to those who do not know it. May fasting and prayer give you strength in that and I bless you with motherly blessing in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Thank you.”
Our Lady was very sad.
On the 25th of each month, Our Lady appears to the Medjugorje visionary Marija to give us her message to the world. Below is the latest official English translation as provided by the Information Center in Medjugorje.
“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. I am with you and before my Son Jesus I intercede for your conversion. Thank you for having responded to my call.
Our conversion, our daily walk to let the glory of God within us shine forth to others is “work,” as Mary says. We are made in the image of God, and who we human beings are lies far beyond our own comprehension. To discover and reveal our divine nature takes vigilance on our part–a shedding of the ego, and of sin, to radiate beams of God’s heart, through our words, our actions, and our eyes. This work of conversion is nothing less than helping God reveal Himself to the world, for as a priest friend of mine once said, “If we could but see the beauty of just one human soul, we would weep with joy and wonder.”
