Mirjana, for the 1st time in 30 years, speaks an urgent plea after apparition

Visionary Mirjana Soldo, standing in front of her home in Medjugorje. October, 2011

Mirjana collapsed in tears after the October 2nd apparition in Medjugorje. For the first time since the beginning of the apparitions, in 1981, she shared her own words to the world, preceding the Blessed Mother’s:

“I have never said anything before,” said Mirjana, “but are you aware, brothers, that the Mother of God was with us? Each of us should ask himself: ‘Are you worthy of this?’ I am saying this because it is difficult for me to see her in pain, because each of us is seeking a miracle, but does not want to work a miracle in himself.”

“Dear children!” said Mother Mary, in her message. “Also today my motherly heart calls you to prayer, to your personal relationship with God the Father, to the joy of prayer in Him. God the Father is not far away from you and He is not unknown to you. He revealed Himself to you through my Son and gave you Life that is my Son. Therefore, my children, do not give in to temptations that want to separate you from God the Father. Pray! Do not attempt to have families and societies without Him. Pray! Pray that your hearts may be flooded by the goodness which comes only from my Son, Who is sincere goodness. Only hearts filled with goodness can comprehend and accept God the Father. I will continue to lead you. In a special way I implore you not to judge your shepherds. My children, are you forgetting that God the Father called them? Pray! Thank you.”

My friend, Jane Lee, traveled to Medjugorje with Trinity Pilgrimages and stood hear Mirjana, during her October 2nd apparition. A couple in Jane’s group, who had been present at seven of Mirjana’s past apparitions, said this time, Mirjana’s face was different. See video above. Never before had she looked so distraught, to the point of collapsing in tears, when the apparition ended.

Jane shared in an email to me how the people on her pilgrimage responded to Mirjana’s reaction, and she recorded Mirjana’s personal words to them regarding why she gave the message.

Mirjana, her face full of pain, as she sees and converses with the Virgin Mary, during her apparition on October 2, 2011

“What struck us,” said Jane, “was how tragic Mirjana’s expression was right after the apparition was over. We knew that it was very very bad. Whatever she had heard, whatever she had experienced, was profound. Here’s the transcript of how we asked Mirjana about her historic and uncharacteristic supplementary message. Mirjana’s eyes became teary as she answered us.

Q: ‘After the apparition yesterday, you had a special message of your own for us can you explain what prompted you?’

A: (through Miki, the translator): ‘I don’t know what happened to me, ’cause I never did that.  After thirty years, that was the first time I said something. And it’s a little hard for me to talk about it. That is still kind of fresh. [tears in eyes] I’m sorry that people do not comprehend what is important. But people are looking for miracles and not what is the most important–miracle within oneself. To come to know the love of God. Because you waste your time. And the tears in Our Lady’s eyes [are] because of you. And how come you do not comprehend? And that pain that I was looking at her like that, I simply had to say something. Because she has so much love, patience. And we are so deaf.  That caused me so much pain I had to say something.'”

Medjugorje messages were given to Reagan and Gorbachev

Featured on is former Ambassador Kingon’s video testimony on giving the messages of Medjugorje to Reagan and Gorbachev. Watch the testimony at, (scroll down the featured videos to see “Alfred Kingon’s Testimony), and read the fascinating write ups below:

Visionary Marija Pavlovic Writes a Letter to the President of the United States

Dear President Reagan,

Medjuogorje visionary Marija Pavlovic-Lunetti

The Blessed Mother appears every day in this small village of Medjugorje in Yugoslavia. She sends us a message of peace. We know that you do your best to improve the peace in the world, and we remember you every day in our prayers. We want you to know that you can count on our prayers and sacrifices. In this way, we want to help you in your difficult task. Our Holy Mother said that with prayers and fasting, even wars can be avoided. May this message help you and Mary’s daily appearances be a sign to you also, that God loves His people. United in prayer, in the hearts of Jesus and Mary (The Queen of Peace), we express to you our love, and greet you with Peace.

Marija Pavlovic

Marija received a picture of President Reagan on Christmas Day, 1987, with this message: “To Marija Pavlovic—with my heartfelt thanks and every good wish. God Bless You. Sincerely, Ronald Reagan.”

Marija’s letter arrived just prior to his meeting with Mikhail Gorbachev at the December Nuclear Arms Summit in Washington, D.C. The letter was carried by the American Ambassador to Middle Europe, Alfred H. Kingon, who was on a two-week pilgrimage to Medjugorje to pray and fast for his sick son. He personally delivered the message to the White House. On December 8, 1987, the Ambassador called Marija from the White House to tell her that Mr. Reagan was delighted with the message and that after he had finished reading it, exclaimed, “Now, with a new spirit, I am going to the meeting with Mr. Gorbachev.” Later the same night, the White House tried to contact Marija, but could not get through. Mr. Kingon sent a letter to Marija to encourage her to also send a letter of peace to Mr. Gorbachev.

February, 1988, from pp. 56-57 of The Best of “The Spirit of Medjugorje,” Volume 1, pp.  by June Klins

Gorbachev, it turns out, had been presented a synopsis of the Medjugorje messages by Ambassador Alfred Kingon of the U.S., who also briefed President Ronald Reagan on the apparitions after visiting the pilgrimage site. Michael Brown also commented on the event, at the time:

Reagan and Gorbachev were secretly briefed on Medjugorje

@Spirit Daily

       The news that former President Ronald Reagan broke his hip and was operated on over the weekend brought to mind his connection — never revealed to the general public — to the famous apparition site of Medjugorje, where the Virgin Mary has been appearing since 1981.

Alfred H. Kingon served as the US Ambassador to the European Union from 1987-1989. Prior to this, he occupied a number of key positions in Ronald Reagan's administration, including Assistant to the President and Secretary of the Cabinet from 1985-1987, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Policy Planning and Communications in 1984 and Assistant Secretary of Commerce for International Economic Policy in 1983.

The connection came about because of Alfred Kingon, Reagan’s ambassador to the European Communities and a former assistant secretary of the Treasury who visited the village in 1987 and though he was raised in a home that was Jewish and Christian Scientist, became convinced of the apparitions. In fact so impressed was Kingon that he sent Reagan a personal two-and-a-half page summary.

And Kingon told us that Reagan responded so favorably that he even had his secretary try to contact one of the seers, Marija Pavlovic (but unfortunately in those days telephone lines to the village were tenuous and Reagan never reached her).

Soon after Ambassador Kingon sent a similar report to Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. Kingon told Spirit Daily he reduced thirty-nine pages of Mary’s messages to a one-page memorandum, with Austrians helping in the translation.

Then another ambassador, Jack Matlock, guided the document to the Soviet leader.

“There was no answer from Gorbachev, but it was indicated that he got it,” said Kingon, who strongly believes there is “something of great import going on” at Medjugorje. He told us he senses that in some fashion “the whole world is going to change.”

Another major official, Margaret Heckler, former Massachusetts congresswoman who served in Reagan’s Cabinet and was ambassador to Ireland, has also visited Medjugorje and says that she has seen the metal links in three of her rosaries mysteriously turn gold.

According to an organization called Medjugorje USA, the State Department has hundreds of pages of documents about Medjugorje — where in the early 1980s the Virgin came warning about the situation in the world. Postscript: when he retired Reagan was said to have placed a statue of Our Blessed Mother in his California office.

False documents were created by the communists to suppress Medjugorje

Medjugorje: Documents show how communist government repressed visionaries
Date: 2011-09-08 18:44:31
September 8, 2011. (

New documents have been revealed showing how the communist regime of Yugoslavia tried to suppress the movement behind the apparitions of Medjugorje.

In the book “The Mystery of Medjugorje,” the Croatian journalist Žarko Ivković explains how the government would spy, blackmail, and even threaten Church officials, particularly the Franciscan friar Jozo Zovko, who was the spiritual director of the visionaries.

The journalist Ivković uncovered these documents by researching through the archives of the powerful secret state security service called the SDB.

State authorities considered the apparitions an instrument to be used against the government of Yugoslavia. Evidence shows how the State used wiretapping, blackmail, and created false dossiers against members of the Church and to stop followers of the apparitions.

During this time period, Bishop Zanic was a leading critic of the apparitions and according to the book was influenced by these false documents created by the government.

The documents will now be studied by the Vatican commission assigned to investigate the apparitions of Medjugorje, which was created by Benedict XVI in 2010.


Irish star, Daniel O’Donnell, sings a sweet song to Mary of Medjugorje


This month of August,  the Irish television show For One Night Only, which takes an intimate and emotional look at a popular musician’s life story, punctuated by interviews with and performances by that musician, featured Irish singer Daniel O’Donnell. In this video clip, O’Donnell talks about his visit to Medjugorje and sings the song he was inspired to write while on Apparition Hill, called “Sweet Queen of Peace.” If you long to hear the lilting melody of a lullaby and drift into the arms of Mary, or wish to calm your whizzing kids, before tucking them into bed, I recommend playing this song.

The show was transmitted  on August 5, the date that Our Lady gave to the Medjugorje visionaries as her birthday.  “Sweet Queen of Peace” is one of 15 songs on the album, At The End Of The Day, recorded by  O’Donnell in 2004.

Singer Daniel O'Donnell

Daniel O’Donnell is a household name across Ireland and Great Britain. Since the mid-1990’s, he has appeared on popular television showsthere and won various awards. Among the accolades, O’Donnell was named Donegal Person of the Year in 1989, which he still rates as the best award. He was given the Irish Entertainer of the Year award in 1989, 1992 and 1996. O’Donnell’s first chart hit single in the United Kingdom was in 1992 with “I Just Want to Dance With You.”

During his lengthy career, O’Donnell has made friends with his childhood idols, including Cliff Richard and Loretta Lynn. He also forged a close professional relationship withthe Irish songstress Mary Duff, who regularly tours with O’Donnell.

In 2002, he was awarded an Honorary (due to his Irish citizenship) MBE for his services to the music industry. He has had twenty UK Top 40 albums as well as fifteen Top 40 singles and has sold 10 million records to date. O’Donnell garnered considerable success in North America, when he starred in seven concert specials on public television stations (PBS) in the US. He has charted 18 albums in the Top 20 of the US Billboard’s Music Album Chart and also has had several entries in the Independent Albums Chart too. He has sold 10 million records to date.

The Medjugorje “Miracle Mysteries” that the ABC Nightline special didn’t tell you about

Christine Watkins with Flerida and Max Gutierrez atop Apparition Hill in Medjugorje. Mrs. Watkins, the author of Full of Grace: Miraculous Stories of Healing and Conversion through Mary's Intercession, and Flerida Gutierrez, Catholic evangelist, were featured on the ABC Nightline special, "The Miracle Mysteries."

Flerida Gutierrez had little idea that her pilgrimage to Medjugorje in June, with Trinity Pilgrimages and Michael Brown of Spirit Daily, would mean revealing to approximately eight million viewers across the nation that she was a woman of faith, and that she was a woman with stage four cancer.

On this pilgrimage, ABC News producer, Jenna Millman, and Nightline co-anchor, Bill Weir, along with a camera man, accompanied the pilgrimage to film the Medjugorje portion of their special on the Virgin Mary, which aired Wednesday, July 13th. The diminutive, humble, yet vocal Philippina woman, affectionately known as Flerida, was filmed being prayed over by the Medjugorje visionary, Vicka, who placed her loving hand on Flerida’s bowed head. Flerida was “slain in the Spirit” and rested peacefully on her side for a full half hour. So what happened to her during that time?

Here is Flerida’s full story, in her own words . . .

In November of 2010, I received test results showing that I had three cancerous nodules in my liver. I traveled to Medjugorje, to ask the Blessed Mother to pray for my healing, but I also completely surrendered to the idea of death. None of us are going to stay here on earth forever. We’re going to go back home.

On the day of the pilgrimage, when we went to see Vicka give her talk, on the steps of her parents’ small Medjugorje home, I was hoping to be one of the three hundred pilgrims in the crowd to receive prayer from Vicka, who individually laid her hands on every pilgrim present. I felt like I needed her prayers, but since our group arrived later than other pilgrims, some of whom had been waiting now for an hour or two to hear Vicka speak, I assumed I wouldn’t be able to get close to her. “But even if she doesn’t pray over me,” I said in my heart, “I know, Mother Mary, that you will pray to Jesus for me.”

Then our pilgrimage guide, Miki Musa, suddenly whisked me away from where I was standing. My husband, Max, standing next to me, turned around, and I was gone. Miki didn’t tell me where we were going, and I assumed he was bringing me closer to Vicka. “How can we get through these crowds?” I asked.

“Just trust me,” he said, and proceeded to press forward, holding my hand, parting waves in the crowd, saying, “Excuse me, excuse me.”

Before long, I was standing at the front of the crowd, just at the base of the stairs, where Vicka speaks. I knew then that I was going to be prayed over by Vicka, since I was now so close to where she would speak. Out of gratitude and joy, I became hysterical, and started crying.

At the same time, I felt so badly, cutting in front of these people who had been waiting a long time. I was wearing my favorite pair of large sunglasses, which look like something Jackie Onassis wore, and someone asked me, “Are you blind?”

“Good!” I thought to myself. Let them think I’m blind, so no one feels any resentment. There should only be stillness, peace, hope, and joy in people’s hearts at this moment, not because their lives are perfect, but because the Blessed Mother is with all of them.

Then a Croatian woman said to me, “Would you mind going up the steps?”

“Me?” I asked

“Yes,” she said.

Before I could blink twice, I was standing on the balcony of Vicka’s parents’ home. My husband said he spotted me there, wondering how this had happened.

Then Vicka walked past me, and Miki whispered something into her ear. She looked at me with kindness and told me to go inside the house.

I started crying again hysterically. She looked at me and said, “Shh . . .” as if to say, “Don’t worry, there should only be joy.” Then she hugged me tightly for a long time. With that embrace, I felt like I was being held, not by Vicka, but by arms of the Blessed Mother herself.

“Please pray over me,” I said to her.”

“I know, I know,” she said. She knew what I had come for.

Vicka motioned for me to sit on a couch. She put her strong right hand on my head and started praying over me in Croatian, while I continued to cry. Then I rested peacefully in the Spirit. When I came to, the ABC crew told me I had been lying down on my right side for a half hour, but I was not aware of my body, or how long I was in an altered state.

To explain what happened next, I should mention that I speak four languages, with English being my second language. I came to the United States forty-two years ago, at age twenty-two. When I was a little girl growing up in the Philippines, my parents spoke to me in a dialect called Pampango. For years, I hadn’t used or heard this language, especially since my parents are deceased and my husband speaks only English and Tagalog, the National language of the Philippines.

As I lay down, resting in the Spirit, I was thinking of the Blessed Mother, and my soul felt completely still, immersed a beautiful, heavenly peace. I sensed Mary’s presence with me. I could not make out her face, but I knew she was there. Then she spoke to me in a voice that was as clear as any woman’s voice spoken near me in my waking hours. In the Pampango dialect, in the language of my childhood, I heard her say, “My child, you came.” Those four short words contained so much love and meaning! I sensed that she was smiling at me and expressing her joy over my coming in Medjugorje. I woke up crying and smiling at the same time and feeling weightless.

The medical tests I took in November were repeated after I came back from Medjugorje; and where there used to be three cancerous nodules in my liver, now there is only one. Either they consolidated, or two of them disappeared. I feel good, I don’t have any symptoms whatsoever. I eat well. I sleep eight hours a day. I am so strong. Just the other day, I saw an oncologist from Germany, and she told me that, in her entire career, she hasn’t seen anyone with stage four cancer who looks as healthy as I do.

I truly believe I will be healed. I will know more in four months, when I take another CAT scan. I am looking forward to going back to Medjugorje, to thank the Lord for a complete healing. At this time, I believe I am helping along my healing and keeping my immune system strong, because I have such a positive attitude. I have surrendered myself completely to the Lord. I am not afraid to die. What is there to fear? I believe that we are just on a journey. Before we leave this life, we pass through so many hills and valleys, and then our passports will expire. At the end of life, God will take care of our loved ones, and God will take care of us. We have to go home. And if it’s not my time yet, I’ve told God, “If you will extend my visa here on hearth, I will speak for You. I will speak of Your power, Your mercy, Your glory, and Your unconditional love.”

Shortly after I returned home to Las Vegas, from Medjugorje, a fellow pilgrim, Julie Quintana from Los Angeles, said she would be coming my way to visit relatives. I invited her to my prayer group the evening she was in town, and there to my great joy and delight, she shared her own testimony of healing in Medjugorje. Here’s what she said:

The Wednesday before I left on my trip to Medjugorje, I had to have a biopsy done on my breast. I also received test results from a papsmear, which revealed I had a polyp in my cervix and pre-cancerous cells. I couldn’t see a specialist for this in such short notice, and would have to wait until I returned from my pilgrimage. So off I went to Medjugorje in a daze, wondering why on earth I was going to travel across the world at such a time.

One of the many beautiful gifts of Medjugorje, standing a few yards behind St. James Church, is a statue of the crucified Christ, which has been exuding a special oil from its right knee, continuously for many years now. Healings have been attributed to this oil, so my roommate Sue Larson stood in a line of pilgrims to collect some of this liquid. She decided to bless her eyes with drops of the liquid, since she’d had eye surgery in the past, and preferred not to go through it again. I touched the oil with my fingers, made the sign of the cross, and put the special oil on several handkerchiefs I’d brought as gifts; and then I placed a drop of the oil on the center of my right breast, on top of my clothing, just over where there was a cluster of calcifications in the ducts, where the biopsy was done.

As we were walking away from the crucifix, Sue stopped and exclaimed, “My eyes are burning with heat!” She was feeling an intense sensation of heat in the tissue of her eyes, from the top of her eyelids down to the top of her cheekbones. After she said this, I stopped in my tracks. I, too, was feeling a strong heat where the oil had touched my body, both on my fingertips and on the exact spot on my right breast. Finding this hard to believe, three times I tested how that area on my right breast felt, compared with my left. Each time the left one was cold, while the right one was very warm, not only externally, but internally as well.

We arrived home on Wednesday the 15th of June, and a week later, I received a report that my breast biopsy was benign. Then I saw the specialist, who put a big scope inside of me, which magnifies my insides with bright lights. “There is nothing there,” he said, “absolutely nothing. There’s no polyp, and the precancerous cells are completely gone.”

I wanted to know how he was responding to this news, so I asked him to explain this, and he said, “Well sometimes the body heals itself.”

“Well I just went on a religious pilgrimage, I told him.”

And he responded with a smile, “It could be that.”

Later, Sue and I were talking, and I said, “Sue, I have absolutely nothing wrong with me. And you know what? This was a plan in God’s heart, because He knew I was going to receive these difficult test results, and He whisked me off to Medjugorje to help me. On that trip I felt very positive that I would be fine. By the end of the tip, I somehow knew that I didn’t have cancer. I just knew I’d been healed.”

Graces from the 30th Anniversary of the apparitions in Medjugorje are being brought from Medjugorje into your own home.

Our Lady’s apparitions to Ivan will be streamed live from Medjugorje on June 23rd and June 26, 2011, at 12:00 Noon (EST) at They will begin streaming the rosary before the apparition, and afterwards Ivan will graciously answer questions.  Mary T.V. has been told, reportedly by the visionary Ivan, that those connected through the internet are prayed over by Our Lady the same as those kneeling right next to the visionary. . . and the religious items they have with them that they would like Our Lady to bless are blessed the same as the religious items placed in front of her during the apparition.

This grace might sound too good to be true, or too strange, or supernatural, but isn’t any apparition of the Blessed Mother all those things, as well? And is Mary’s sharing her blessings  through our modern means of communication, not an answer to prayer for many of those who would love to go to Medjugorje, but cannot?

Medjugorje miracle: Video of Mary statue weeping

This is a video of a statue of Mary weeping. The statue, called Our Lady Grace, is found near Medjugorje, Bosnia and Herzegovina, in the town of Tihaljina, in the church of St. Elijah. It gained importance because Father Jozo Zovko was sent to this church, after being released from prison. As people flocked to see Father Jozo, who had witnessed one of the Medjugorje apparitions, they were moved by the breathtakingly beautiful statue of Our Lady of Grace. Word and image spread of this statue’s beauty, and it soon came to be identified with Medjugorje.

Miraculous occurrences happen daily in and around Medjugorje, where grace pours down upon the earth like a gentle rain. Let us ponder why Our Lady is crying and seek to dry her tears with our lives.

Medjugorje miracle of colored lightning, changing sun, and conversions, seen by Fr. John Gibbons, OFM

The first evening I was in Medjugorje, my tour group walked into the town church, Saint James, which was packed with people praying the rosary. I remember walking forward a ways down what was left of the center isle, feeling so much serenity, in the midst of all the hubbub and confusion of thousands of people converging to celebrate the anniversary of the apparitions. There, in that church, I felt the power of the Holy Spirit, fully present. Amidst a crowded situation, which should have been terribly chaotic, in a hot place where strangers sat packed together in the pews, while others came and went, all were blanketed with an incredibly profound spirit of peace. I am not very charismatic, but when I walked into Saint James Church, I dropped to my knees and stayed on them, overwhelmed for a very long time.

Fr. John Gibbons, OFM

It became clear to me during my week in Medjugorje that Mary was appearing there. Twice, she appeared to a visionary in a public apparition, and when this happened, I was near the apparition site on Apparition Hill and again felt a divine peace mixed with a collective excitement. I also saw two miraculous phenomena on two other days of our stay. One afternoon, I could look right at the sun—without squinting, with my eyes fully open and my face completely relaxed. People who had described this Medjugorje occurrence to me generally talked about seeing the sun spinning, but to me it looked more like a vibrating, even bobbling, illuminated, glowing host. When this happened, my friend Caren and I were walking along a road with several other groups of people, and I found it interesting that some of us could see it, and some of us could not. Caren could not even look up at the sun because it was so bright, and I consider her a more fervent Christian than myself. This did not ruin her day, though, because she could sense the excitement in the group; people were pointing to the sky and excitedly commenting to one another about the miracle. I looked at the sun for several seconds and looked away a couple of times, but every time I looked back, it was still bobbling. I stared comfortably into that host-like sun for a long time and didn’t go blind. I still have 20/20 vision.

On our last night there, Mary again appeared on Apparition Hill. I did not go up the hill with many of the other pilgrims to be near the apparition site. Instead, I stayed inside. At the time of the apparition, a lightning storm struck which I could view from the balcony where I was staying. I decided to run outside to better see the storm, and when I looked up, I witnessed lightning coming down in many different colors, blue, green, purple, yellow, red, all over the sky—an amazing and incredibly beautiful sight. Something miraculous was obviously happening, although it looked natural, i.e. it was supernatural but not bizarre. But of course the real miracle was Mary’s appearance and God’s abiding presence. The lightning, I felt, was merely God’s afterthought. With both the miracle of the sun and the lighting, I didn’t feel surprised. I remember thinking, “If Mary is really appearing here, then of course the universe is going to acknowledge that.”

For me, the most powerful sign of the authenticity of Mary’s presence and the Spirit at work in Medjugorje was the conversions that were happening. The conversion that most impressed me happened to a man I had met on the bus ride in. He was the successful businessman type, and he was only there because his wife had been keen on visiting Medjugorje and had connived him and their daughter into accompanying her. During the bus trip he had spent his time rolling his eyes, pooh-poohing the whole thing, throwing doubtful glances at his wife, and questioning her sanity. Well, I ran into them some days later, and now the picture was reversed. His wife and daughter were looking at him with bemused wonder as he preached to anyone who would listen about how Mary had turned his life around and about the importance of prayer and repentance. He was on fire. He had experienced his personal Pentecost and could not stop sharing the Good News with everybody.
