A Brief History of the Messages
Since June 24, 1981, the Blessed Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus Christ, has been appearing in apparition at Medjugorje and giving verbal messages to six Croatian teenagers. The messages, while first directed to the visionaries and then the people of the village, are meant for all of the people of the world.
In the first 33 months of the apparitions, the messages served as “teaching” lessons and laying out the general purpose of the Blessed Virgin’s appearance in the village. “I have come to tell you God exists and that He loves you.” wthe first message she gave the children on June 25, 1981. Later, she said she would appear to each of them and over a period of time and give them ten special future event messages (referred by most followers of Medjugorje as secrets) that would have to do with major happenings in the world that would occur after her last apparition at Medjugorje.
Presently, three of the six visionaries have received all 10 secrets and no longer have daily apparitions. However, the Blessed Virgin promised that she would appear to those visionaries who have received all ten secrets at least one time each succeeding year.
Visionary Mirjana was the first to receive the tenth secret. Her daily apparitions ended Christmas day, 1982. The Virgin told her that she would appear to her annually on March 18, beginning in 1983. However, on March 2, 1987, the Blessed Virgin Mary began speaking to Mirjana by way of inner locution. Later, the locutions became apparitions again that were at first private for the visionary and her family, and later became public. Mirjana continues to see the Blessed Virgin now on the second day of each month, an event that draws thousands each time it occurs.
Visionary Ivanka received the tenth secret on May 7, 1985; she now has her annual apparition on the anniversary day of the apparitions, June 25. Jakov was given the 10th secret on September 11, 1998 and has his annual apparition on Christmas Day, December 25.
2018 Messages From Our Lady
January 02 message to Mirjana: "Dear children, when love is beginning to disappear on earth, when the way of salvation is not being found, I, the mother, am coming to help you to come to know true faith - living and profound - so as to help you to truly love. As a mother, I am longing for your mutual love, goodness, and purity. My desire is that you be just and that you love each other. My children, be joyful in your soul, be pure, be children. My Son used to say that he loves to be among pure hearts, because pure hearts are always young and joyful. My Son said to you to forgive and to love each other. I know that this is not always easy. Suffering makes you grow in spirit. For you to spiritually grow all the more, you must sincerely and truly forgive and love. Many of my children on earth do not know my Son, they do not love Him; but you who do love my Son, you who carry Him in your heart, pray, pray and in praying feel my Son beside you. May your soul breathe in His spirit. I am among you and am speaking about little and great things. I will not grow tired speaking to you about my Son - the true love. Therefore, my children, open your hearts to me. Permit me to lead you as a mother. Be apostles of the love of my Son and of me. As a mother I implore you not to forget those whom my Son has called to lead you. Carry them in your heart and pray for them. Thank you."
