The third secret of Medjugorje already revealed: the permanent sign

Apparition Hill where Our Lady first appeared in 1981

The Third Secret

The Virgin Mary will give ten secrets to the visionaries of Medjugorje and within their lifetimes, these will be revealed to the world. Three of the visionaries, Mirjana, Ivanka, and Jakov have all ten secrets and no longer see Our Lady daily. Marija, Vicka, and Ivan have nine secrets.

The third secret will be a lasting sign, spontaneously appearing on Apparition Hill, where the six visionaries experienced their first apparition. The sign will be permanent, indestructible, and beautiful, something that has never before been on the earth, and those who do not believe in God will not be able to say it is of human origin.

A webcam has been placed in Medjugorje to show this area of Apparition Hill around the clock to viewers on the internet, and part of the reason behind this endeavor is to allow people to see the permanent sign as soon as it appears. During the day, once can see pilgrims climbing and descending Apparition Hill. When there is a nighttime apparition at the place where a statue of Mary now stands, one can see the flashlights of pilgrims as they negotiate the rocky trails. See

The following interviews are selected and adapted from In their own words, some of the Medjugorje visionaries explain what they can about the third secret:


Martin Sheen, during the interviews for his Medjugorje documentary, “The Lasting Sign,” asked Ivan the following question:

Martin Sheen: “So many people have heard of the prediction of a sign that will occur evidently here in Medjugorje that will confirm that these apparitions have, in fact, been taking place with you and your friends and the Holy Mother. Any ideas of what this sign might be?”

Ivan: “We know the sign and when it will be and what it will be. It will be on the place of the apparitions, where Our Lady appeared for the first time, and all the rest is a secret.”


Question: “Mirjana, what, if anything, are you permitted to tell us about the Ten Secrets?”

Mirjana: “The first two secrets come as advance warnings for the whole world and as proof that the Blessed Mother is here in Medjugorje.”

Question: “And the third secret?”

Mirjana: “The third secret will be a visible sign at Medjugorje – permanent, indestructible, and beautiful.”

Question: “For clarification purposes, the great sign for all non-believers, will it take place on Apparition Mountain behind us or where will it take place?”

Marija: “Our Lady told us that She will leave the sign on the Hill of the Apparitions.

Question: “Is there anything you can tell us about the sign the Blessed Mother has promised to leave us?”

Marija: “It will be a visible sign for all the unbelievers to see. But, for those that already believe, they do not need a sign.”

Question: “You and the other visionaries have indicated that there will be advanced signs [signs preceding the great sign] in many places in the world to warn the world. When will these advanced signs begin?”

Marija: “There are signs in many places in the world now. Many people see luminary signs. Many experience personal healings, both physical and spiritual, and also psychological. Many have private signs. People have come here from all over the world. Often they have or have had extraordinary signs in their lives.”

Question: “Will all people on earth believe in God, in the Blessed Mother when the permanent sign occurs?”

Marija: “The Blessed Mother has said that those who are still alive when the permanent sign comes will witness many conversions among the people because of the sign, but She also says blessed are those who do not see but who believe.”

Question: “Mirjana told me that there will still be some unbelievers even when the permanent sign comes.”

Marija: “The Blessed Mother has said there will always be Judases.”

Question: “Vicka told me that there is great urgency in the Blessed Mother’s call to immediate conversion. She said that for those who only marginally believe, who choose to wait for the great sign to believe, it will be too late. Do you know why it will be too late for them?”

Marija: “This is a time of great grace and mercy. Now is the time to listen to these messages and to change our lives. Those who do will never be able to thank God enough.”


Question: “Do you know when the permanent sign is coming, Jakov?”

Jakov: “Yes. When the permanent sign comes, people will come here from all over the world in even larger numbers. Many more will believe.”

Question: “Will all people believe because of the permanent sign, Jakov?”

Jakov: “The Blessed Mother said that there will still be some who will not believe even after the permanent sign comes.”

Question: “Do you know what the permanent sign is, Jakov?”

Jakov: “Yes.”

Question: “Can you tell us anything about it?”

Jakov: “It will be something that has never been on the earth before.”

Question: “Jakov, why will some still not believe?”

Jakov: “They will not put themselves in a position to be converted.”

    The ten secrets will be revealed to the world within the visionaries lifetimes. Marija says, “The Blessed Mother has said that those who are still alive when the permanent sign comes will witness many conversions…” Still alive??!!!!! I know the secrets are not meant to scare. They are warnings to convert now. Plus, who says they are all even bad?! Vicka has been such an inspiration in terms of reminding me of Padre Pio’s words of “Pray, Hope and Don’t Worry” …… but I still need some clarification on this one.

    @LT: I understood that the Virgin Mary refers to “those of us who will be still alive when the permanent sign comes..”, i.e. that it may take a few more decades until it happens. I didn’t understand it in the sense that there would be a great cataclysm in the meanwhile. Although Marija said that for those who wait until the coming of the sign to convert, it will be too late. In any case, I don’t think we need to worry, but live the life the Blessed Mother is calling us to. And as Padre Pio said, pray, hope and don’t worry 🙂

    My thinking is that the first two secrets will warn of some earth-shaking events that will cause many deaths. So when the sign of the third secret appears, it will be too late for those who are already dead and cannot benefit from the sign.

    Hello everybody and Happy New Year. I believe the first two secrets will be around the corner as you can now witness around the world..bloodshed and the rise of the Islamic state..more harm to Christians and Muslims. I plead the divine mercy of God to end all this bloodshed.

    Hi all. I’m not sure what to say. I want to share Christ’s miracles with you. I was a man of great sin in my young life. I did, or was near, so many things that I will be forever ashamed of. Satan led me down so many dark paths, and I failed test after test. I even suffered from several ailments. I can’t explain what happened next, not very well at least. I just know that one day, while I was living in hell proverbially and in many way literally, I realized that Jesus was reaching His hand down to me. He told me all I had to do was accept His offer and great things would happen for me. I don’t know what inside of me pushed me to it, but I accepted that gift with my whole heart, and from there, He helped me climb inch by inch out of hell. Along the way, I was healed of my ailments seemingly over night. Not only did He help me put everything back together, He took me through a few more trials, which this time, through Christ, I survived. And now, after years of work, I am writing to all of you from a Capuchin Franciscan Friary where I am on the path to the priesthood for the Church and the Capuchins. I’ve experienced Jesus, and every fiber of that part of me that He opened to Him tells me that this is the Holy Virgin Mother that speaks to us. I cannot, of course, disobey the Church–and nobody else should either, because obedience is a virtue given by God–and say that this is a confirmed appearance because the Holy Church has not given its final word yet. However, I still feel in my heart that this is real, and it is producing a great love of God and the Holy Mother in me and many others, so it is yielding fruit. Jesus amazes me. I would never have picked myself for what He has picked me for; I would not have been able to forgive myself as He has forgiven me; and I know many of you feel the same inexpressible sense of awe and gratitude for His mercy. I will never be a perfect man, but I love my Christ, His Almighty Father, and the Holy Spirit, which is theirs in unity, and I love my Holy Mother as only a little child can love its mother. I will never be a saint, but I love all of you, too, and I will be the best Capuchin that I can be for my God and His people. I’m not even sure why I’ve confessed so much here, but my heart led me to it. I just know that when the Holy Mother said that people would be healed miraculously and in many ways she wasn’t kidding. I hope everyone experiences this great gift of mercy and love that is being offered through the Holy Mother at this time. Well, I believe that I’ve gone and said too much. Bless all of you, and know of my prayers for you all especially in the most Holy Rosary.
