The apparitions since July 1981, often taking place in the church where they occurred spontaneously toward the end of the Rosary, are transferred to the room serving as a storeroom. It is opposite the sacristy, and provided privacy from the curiosity of the pilgrims, and every provocation on part of the police. This room was cleaned and decorated. Subsequently, it has since been called, chapel of the apparitions. Before the end of February this transfer was definitive, except for rare occasions.

Monday, January 11, 1982
“I invite you very specially to participate at Mass. Wait for me at church, that is the agreeable place.”

Thursday, January 14, 1982
After the prayers, the songs and the questions, Our Lady reprimanded two visionaries because of their behavior, and recommended to them not to behave in this manner again. In case of observation, the other visionaries did not understand what Our Lady told those she reprimanded, and observed only her expression and guessed what it was all about. Those whom she reprimanded say that at that moment, she was gentle and attentive in respect for them.

Monday, January 18, 1982
On the matter of a sick person with heart problems:
“There is little hope for her. I will pray for her.”

After her departure, the children see the Cross, the heart and the sun, signs which they perceive from time to time.

Wednesday, January 20, 1982
Must the children from Lzbicno meet us tomorrow? They say that you told them of this meeting. “It is not necessary for you to meet them.”

They want to transfer Fr. Tomislav from here. What must he do?
“If it is in God’s design, that he depart, as has been the case with Fr. Jozo, have him abandon himself to the will of God. He must think very much, and you must pray for him.”

Thursday, January 21, 1982
The visionaries: Why don’t you leave a concrete sign, so that the priests are convinced, and that they be converted in order to be able to convert the others? “The sign will appear at the desired time.”

Why are there apparitions in different places in Hercegovina?
“My children, don’t you see that the faith begins to extinguish itself, and that it is necessary to awaken the faith among men?”

What must we do so that peace may reign among the priests?
“Fast and pray!”

Friday, January 22, 1982
Is the apparition at Lzbicno coming from God or from the devil?
“It is coming from God.”

Tuesday, February 2, 1982
When must one celebrate the feast of The Queen of Peace? The Blessed Virgin smiled as she answered:
“I would prefer that it take place June 25th. The faithful have come for the first time on that day, on the hill.”

Monday, February 8, 1982
Vicka: Jakov and I were in the sacristy. When we began to pray the Our Father, the Gospa arrived. It was five minutes after six. We questioned her on the matter of a person who was sick, emotionally:
“He must pray. I will help him within the limitation of my power.”

To the Slovenes who were praying while she was with us:
“Persevere in prayer.”
Then she blessed some religious articles.

Tuesday, February 9, 1982
At the fourth Our Father, the Blessed Virgin arrived. We always ask questions with respect to the sick:
“Pray for all the sick. Believe firmly. I will come to help, according to that which is in my power I will ask my Son, Jesus, to help them. The most important thing, in the meantime, is a strong faith. Numerous sick persons think that it is sufficient to come here in order to be quickly healed. Some of them do not even believe in God, and even less, in the apparitions, and then they ask for help from the Gospa!”

Wednesday, February 10, 1982
Vicka: Jakov and I were alone. Just as every evening, we prayed, conversed with the Blessed Virgin, and asked many questions. To them she responded: “Pray, Pray! It is necessary to believe firmly, to go to confession regularly, and likewise receive Holy Communion. It is the only salvation.”

Her preferred prayer is the Creed. When we recite it, the Blessed Virgin does not cease to smile. I think that no one has seen her happier than during this prayer.

Thursday, February 11, 1982
Just like every evening, except on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, Jakov and I are alone. The Blessed Virgin begins first of all to pray the Our Father, then the Glory Be. We recommend the sick and then present her questions: “Pray my angels, persevere! Do not let the enemy take possession of you in anything. Be courageous. Go in the peace of God, my angels. Goodbye.”

Friday, February 12, 1982
“Be more calm, more poised. Do not take sides with other children. Be agreeable, well mannered, pious!”

When Our Lady prays, she joins her hands. When she speaks she opens them and raises them toward Heaven, her palms turned upwards.

Saturday, February 13, 1982
To the seminarians who were present: “Through prayer, one obtains everything.”

Sunday, February 14, 1982
There are four of us today. When we are in a group, I feel a little happier and joyful in the presence of the Holy Virgin. The others agree:
“Be together like brothers and sisters. Do not argue. Satan exists! He seeks only to destroy. With regards to you, pray, and persevere in prayer. No one will be able to do anything against you.”

Tuesday, February 16, 1982
The Blessed Virgin began, Jesus in Your Name. Since she has appeared to us she hasn’t been sad. Whatever she says, her countenance is smiling and filled with serenity. Her joy attracts us. She wants us to be joyful, wanting nothing to deceive us, no intrigues, or inventive stories.
“Satan only says what he wants. He interferes in everything. You, my angels, be ready to endure everything. Here, many things will take place. Do not allow yourselves to be surprised by him.”

Friday, February 19, 1982
We asked if we could pray the Hail Mary. She said yes. And while we prayed, she looked at us with a smile, but without praying with us. Truly, her beauty is indescribable. Since I have seen Our Lady, I have been filled with joy. Whatever her words may be, what she has told me, I have always done it. I have obeyed. She makes attentive remarks, as a mother.
“Listen attentively at holy Mass. Be well mannered. Do not chatter during holy Mass.”

Sunday, February 21, 1982
“Be together, and do not argue, do not be disorderly. My angels, I will make you attentive. I will guide you on a sure way.”

Tuesday, February 23, 1982
When we asked Our Lady, she did not answer, but began immediately to pray. When we asked her if such a person were alive, she said:
“Do not ask me any more questions! I know what there is in each sick person, or what there is in my power to help him. I will pray to my Son to put out His mercy on each one.”

Thursday, February 25, 1982
“Be persevering and courageous. Do not fear anything. Pray, and do not pay attention to others.”

We asked for news about Fr. Jozo: “Do not fear for him.”

Sunday, February 28, 1982
“Thank Tomislav very much, for he is guiding you very well.” Then she smiles, and begins to say the Glory Be. “Go in the peace of God, my angels!”

Monday, March 1, 1982
“All of you be happy, and may my blessing accompany you at each step.”
She blessed many religious articles; she touched them with her hands.

Since the Yugoslavian authorities demanded that they put an end to the prayer meetings for the young people, the Blessed Virgin was questioned, and responded:
“It is better to temporarily suspend prayer meetings and those of meditation because of the authorities. Take them up later, when it will be possible.”

Tuesday, March 2, 1982
A woman, who had come from Osijek, brought two large pictures of the Pope. The Blessed Virgin came at 6:00pm with her smile. I believed she was smiling at us; but it was because of the pictures on the table. She said:
“He is your father, my angels.”

Then she began the Our Father. On leaving she said:
“Open the door well, follow the Mass well! Go in the peace of God, my angels! If you suffer for a just cause, blessings will be still more abundant for you.”

Thursday, March 4, 1982
I asked questions with respect to a woman who had no children. She is not of our faith. Our Lady said:
“Let her believe firmly. God, who comes to help everyone, will likewise help her. Be patient, my angels, do not be afraid of anything. I am at your side and guard you. If you have any problems, whatever it be, call me. I will come immediately and help you in advising you on best resolving the difficulty. Go in peace, my angels. Goodbye.”

Friday, March 5, 1982
I questioned the Blessed Virgin on the matter of an Italian, who was very sick, and about another man who acquired cancer. She responded:
“Tell them to pray and to put themselves in the hands of God. I too, will call on the mercy of my Son. I will do everything in my power to help them. But it will be necessary to believe completely. Without a strong faith, nothing is possible. Goodbye my angels.”

Sunday, March 7, 1982
The Blessed Virgin said that she has been with Ivan at the Seminary in Visoko: “He prays well; he is obedient. He follows my instructions.”

Monday, March 8, 1982
Concerning a boy named Bora (age 16), from Metkovic, who disappeared for a week:
“He left because of many troubles. He himself, created some of the problems.”

Tuesday, March 9, 1982
On the matter of a young man from Hadromilje, named Mladen, who disappeared from his home:
“He has serious problems. It is necessary to pray for him very much, my angels. The people are beginning to be converted. Prayer has been taken up again, in the homes, where people had no longer prayed.”

Beginning of April 1982
Mirjana: Do you wish the establishment of a special feast in your honor?
“I wish a feast for the Queen of Peace, on the 25th of June, anniversary of the first apparition.”

Easter Sunday, April 11, 1982
Is it necessary to establish prayer groups, formed by Priests, Sisters and laity in the parish?
“It is necessary, but not only here. Communities of prayer are necessary in all parishes.”
(It does not mean just Charismatic Groups, as the polemists, who are adversaries of this movement, have indicated.)

Wednesday, April 21, 1982
Fr. Vlasic questioned the visionaries and said: They say that the Blessed Virgin continues to appear to them every day. The messages can be summarized thusly: Be patient! Everything is developing according to God’s plan. His promises will be realized. May one continue to pray, to do penance, and to be converted.

Thursday, April 22, 1982
Are the luminous signs at the cross on Krizevac natural, or do they come from God? What does the letter ‘S’ and the letter ‘T’, which appear on the cross mean? “They are signs of God, and not of natural phenomena. ‘S’ and ‘T’ are signs of salvation.”

Saturday, April 24, 1982
What must one do in order to have more cures?
“Pray! Pray and believe firmly. Say the prayers which have already been requested. (7 Our Father’s, Hail Mary’s, Glory Be’s, and the Creed.) Do more penance.”

Sunday, May 2, 1982
“I have come to call the world to conversion for the last time. Later, I will not appear any more on this earth.”

Thursday, May 6, 1982
May we write on a piece of paper the date of the great sign, describe it, seal it, and put it in the archives? (as requested by the commission).
“No! I have entrusted that only to you. You will unveil it when I will tell you. Many persons will not believe you, I know, and you will suffer very much for it. But you will endure everything, and you will finally be the happiest.”

Thursday, May 13, 1982
After the attempt on the life of John Paul II:
“His enemies have wanted to kill him, but I protected him.”

Spring, 1982
Question asked at the request of the pastor at Lzbicno, alleged place of other apparitions: Why are there so many signs in Hercegovina?

“It is God who gives them. My children, have you not observed that faith began to extinguish itself? There are many who do not come to church except through habit. It is necessary to awaken the faith. It is a gift from God.”

People are surprised that you are appearing in so many places:
“If it is necessary, I will appear in each home.”

With respect to the little visionaries from Lzbicno, which is located 36 miles from Medjugorje: In 1982-83, 18 persons, mostly females, said they received apparitions. The visionaries from Medjugorje were said to have received kind words from those in Lzbicno, but the Blessed Virgin reminded them strongly, that they must not have any contact with these persons, nor invite them to Medjugorje.
“Did I not tell you not to come together with those children? I am your mother, you must obey me.”

For Jakov, who was crying to see Vicka ill:
“The cross is necessary because of the sins of the world.”

Wednesday, June 23, 1982 (Possibly a few days preceding)
Just before the anniversary of June 24th, Vicka answered some questions asked by Fr. Tomislav Vlasic, who reported them in the parish Chronicle in June. Our Lady said:
“The most important thing is that you, the visionaries, remain united. Let peace be among you. Pay very close attention to that. Obey, and do what the priests and your parents tell you. Go often to holy Mass and receive Communion. Be very attentive these days. Some dishonest people will come to you, in numbers, in order to tempt you. Be careful of your statements. These days, I am expecting of you, a very special discipline. Do not move around anywhere, or often, and do not separate from one another.”
(Some of the visionaries understood that these words were directed specifically to them, and they began to cry).

“A number of those who have been very enthusiastic will cool off. But you, persist, and be proud of each of my words. Have the people pray very much. Have them pray more for salvation, and only for salvation. And let the people be converted so long as it is possible. There are many sins, vexations, curse words, lies and other bad things. Let them be converted, go to confession and receive Holy Communion. Let them not print books on the apparitions before the anniversary has passed, because that could have some undesirable consequences. You have asked me to keep in this parish good and faithful priests who will continue the work. Do not be afraid of anything. This grace will be given to you. From priests, I do not demand anything other than prayer, with perseverance, and preaching. May they be patient and wait for the promises of God.”

With respect to a question from a theologian: Does the Holy Spirit have two natures? “He has only one; the Divine nature.”

The visionaries: They have said that these would be the last apparitions on earth? Is it true? “These apparitions are the last in the world.”

As far as I have understood, observes Fr. Tomislav Vlasic, her answer is not only given in Medjugorje, but also in other parts of the world.

Thursday, June 24 or Friday, June 25, 1982
Before the evening Mass, during the apparition, the Virgin told the priests, through the intermediary of the visionaries:
“Thank the people in my name for the prayers, the sacrifices and the penance. Have them persevere in prayer, fasting and conversion, and have them wait with patience the realization of my promise. Everything is unfolding according to God’s plan.”

Monday, July 12, 1982
Will there be a third world war? “The third world war will not take place.”

Wednesday, July 21, 1982
To the response conveyed by Fr. Tomislav Vlasic on Purgatory:
“There are many souls in Purgatory. There are also persons who have been consecrated to God: some priests, some religious. Pray for their intentions, at least 7 Our Father’s, Hail Mary’s and Glory Be’s and the Creed. I recommend it to you. There is a large number of souls who have been in Purgatory for a long time because no one prays for them.”

A response to a question on fasting:
“The best fast is on bread and water. Through fasting and prayer, one can stop wars, one can suspend the laws of nature. Charity cannot replace fasting. Those who are not able to fast can sometime replace it with prayer, charity and a confession; but everyone, except the sick, must fast.”

Saturday, July 24, 1982
Answer to some questions which were asked:
“We go to Heaven in full conscience: that which we have now. At the moment of death, we are conscious of the separation of the body and the soul. It is false to teach people that we are re-born many times and that we pass to different bodies. One is born only once. The body, drawn from the earth, decomposes after death. It never comes back to life again. Man receives a transfigured body. Whoever has done very much evil during his life can go straight to Heaven if he confesses, is sorry for what he has done, and received Communion at the end of his life.”

Sunday, July 25, 1982
A response to questions asked regarding Hell:
“Today many persons go to Hell. God permits his children to suffer in Hell due to the fact that they have committed grave unpardonable sins. Those who are in Hell, no longer have a chance to know a better lot.”

Response to questions regarding cures:
“For the cure of the sick, it is important to say the following prayers: the Creed, 7 Our Father’s, Hail Mary’s and Glory Be’s, and to fast on bread and water. It is good to impose one’s hands on the sick and to pray. It is good to anoint the sick with holy oil. All priests do not have the gift of healing. In order to revive this gift, the priest must pray with perseverance and believe firmly.”

Friday, August 6, 1982 (Feast of the Transfiguration)
A response to questions which were asked concerning Confession:
“One must invite people to go to Confession each month, especially the first Saturday. Here I have not spoken about it yet. I have invited people to frequent Confession. I will give you yet some concrete messages for our time. Be patient because the time has not yet come. Do what I have told you. They are numerous who do not observe it. Monthly Confession will be a remedy for the Church in the West. One must convey this message to the West.”

That night Our Lady gave a sign to a group of young people who prayed with Ivan Dragicevic. Two luminary signs descended on Krizevac and the church. This phenomenon was observed by Fr. Tomislav Vlasic near the church.

Sunday, August 15, 1982
The vision lasted about seven minutes. The Gospa entrusted a new secret to Vicka and Ivanka. The others visionaries saw that it was about a secret, but they did not understand anything.

Monday, August 16, 1982
No special message. Our Lady only corrected the very resonant and very rapid prayer of the visionaries, and the people in church.

Mirjana says that at the time of the apparition, she sometimes sees heavenly persons: Jesus, Mary, and angels in three dimensions, and earthly persons in two dimensions.

Wednesday, August 18, 1982
Mirjana reports to Fr. Tomislav Vlasic what the Gospa has told her concerning the sick:
“Have them believe and pray; I cannot help those who do not pray and do not sacrifice. The sick, just like those who are in good health, must pray and fast for the sick. The more you believe firmly, the more you pray and fast for the same intention, the greater is the grace and the mercy of God.”

Question asked with regard to a marriage planned between a Catholic and an Orthodox:
“In my eyes and in the sight of God, everything is equal. But for you, it is not the same thing because you are divided. If it is possible, it is better if she were not to marry this man because she will suffer and her children also. She will be able to live and follow only with difficulty, the way of her faith.”

Sunday, August 29, 1982
With reference to the critiques on the apparitions, which have divided the priests in Hercegovina:
“I have not desired your division. On the contrary, I desire that you be united. Do not ignore the fact that I am the Queen of Peace. If you desire a practical advice: I am the Mother who has come from the people; I cannot do anything without the help of God. I, too, must pray like you. It is because of that, that I can only say to you: Pray, fast, do penance and help the weak. I am sorry if my preceding answer was not agreeable to you. Perhaps you do not want to understand it.”

Tuesday, August 31, 1982
“I do not dispose all graces. I receive from God what I obtain through prayer. God has placed His complete trust in me. I protect particularly, those who have been consecrated to me. The great sign has been granted. It will appear independently of the conversion of the people.”

End of August 1982
Ivan is on the hill of Bijakovici with his friends. The Virgin appears to him. “Now, I am going to give you a sign in order to strengthen your faith.”
They see two rays of light, one on the church, the other on the Cross at Krizevac.

Saturday, September 4, 1982
“Jesus prefers that you address yourselves directly to Him rather than through an intermediary. In the meantime, if you wish to give yourselves completely to God and if you wish that I be your protector, then confide to me all your intentions, your fasts, and your sacrifices so that I can dispose of them according to the will of God.”

Sunday, September 26, 1982
For a religious who had come from Rome:
“Have her strengthen the faith of those who have been entrusted to her.”

For Fr. Faricy, and Fr. Forrest: “They are on the good path, have them persist.”

For Pope John Paul II:
“Have him consider himself the father of all mankind, and not only of Christians. Have him spread untiringly and with courage the message of peace and love among all mankind.”

Friday, October 1, 1982
“I am happy because you have begun to prepare the monthly feast of the sacrament of Reconciliation. That will be good for the whole world. Persevere in prayer. It is the true way which leads you toward my Son.”

Thursday, November 4, 1982
Regarding a vision seen by Andja from Mostar one evening during prayer; He saw 13 persons coming from the East, and another evening 6 persons:
“It is about a true vision. They were some souls of her close family from Purgatory. It is necessary to pray for them.”

Saturday, November 6, 1982
Frightened by the eighth secret, Mirjana prayed to the Blessed Virgin to preserve humanity from this calamity:
“I have prayed; the punishment has been softened. Repeated prayers and fasting reduce punishments from God, but it is not possible to avoid entirely the chastisement. Go on the streets of the city, count those who glorify God and those who offend Him. God can no longer endure that.”

Monday, November 8, 1982
Fr. Tomislav has the visionaries ask Our Lady if it is necessary to write to the Bishop, and to priests, so that they can call the faithful to intensify their prayers, or if it is better to wait for other events:
“It is better to wait than to precipitate that.”

Monday, November 15, 1982
Jakov: Must Vicka take the prescribed medicines, or must she have herself admitted to a hospital in Zagreb? “It is necessary to send Vicka to Zagreb.”

Vicka refused to question the Blessed Mother on this subject. She said that she wanted to accept whatever God sent her.

Saturday, December 18, 1982
With respect to the article from the Bishop of Mostar in the journal, Vijesnik, on the events of Medjugorje; Fr. Tomislav Vlasic had the visionaries ask: Must we respond to the Bishop in writing?
“Yes, respond!”

Monday, December 20, 1982
With respect to the same article (Dec. 18, 1982), the visionaries ask: Is it necessary to give the faithful of Mostar objective information concerning the case in Hercegovina?“No!”

Is it better for the visionaries to pray with you, and for the pilgrims to ask their questions to the priests instead?
“Yes, it is better that the children pray with me, and that the pilgrims ask the priests and look for solutions with them. In the meanwhile I will continue to answer the questions which they ask me.”

Thursday, December 23, 1982
To Mirjana: “On Christmas I will appear to you for the last time.”
(On a daily basis)

Saturday, December 25, 1982
To Mirjana after she had received the tenth secret:
“Now you will have to turn to God in faith like any other person. I will appear to you on the day of your birthday and when you will experience difficulties in life. Mirjana, I have chosen you, I have confided in you everything that is essential. I have also shown you many terrible things. You must now bear it all with courage. Think of Me, and think of the tears I must shed for that. You must remain courageous. You have quickly grasped the messages. You must also understand now that I have to go away. Be courageous.”

Monday, December 27, 1982
Today the statue of the Queen of Peace was finished. It was sculptured by Vipotnik, a sculptor from Slovenia, and painted by Luka Stojaknac, and Florijan Mickovic, who wanted to maintain anonymity. This statue has been a source of grace for Luka, who is Orthodox.

The Visionaries ask: May we put the statue in church? “Yes, you may!”

It is this statue which had been venerated for a long time in the nave. It was removed from there on orders from the bishop on March 25th, 1985. It then found itself consigned to the small chapel of the apparitions.

Friday, December 31, 1982
On Vicka’s request, the Blessed Virgin gives this message for the New Year: “Pray as much as possible and fast!”

In the evening, to the visionaries:
“You must persevere in prayer and fasting. I wish that the New Year will be spent in prayer and penance. Persevere in prayer and in sacrifice, and I will protect you and will hear your prayers.”

Saturday, January 1, 1983
Ivanka: Are you still appearing to Mirjana?
“After Christmas, I am no longer appearing to her for the present.”

Wednesday, January 5, 1983
Fr. Tomislav receives from the four visionaries present (Ivan, Jakov, Marija and Vicka), the following information: Marija has received 7 secrets, Vicka 8, Jakov, Ivanka and Ivan 9, and Mirjana 10. We do not know how long the apparitions will last, nor why she no longer appears to Mirjana after Christmas. The Gospa invites us constantly to prayer, to fasting, to conversion. She confirms her promises.

Questioned with respect to the time of the sign: Which month? Which year?, Ivan says: It is forecast.

Friday, January 7, 1983
Our Lady begins to tell her life to the visionaries. They are invited to write down her testimony. They will not be able to make it public until they have received her authorization.

This dictation of her life lasted for Jakov until April, for Ivanka until May 22nd, and for Marija until July 17th.

Marija, who was still attending a school for hairdressers in Mostar, received only an abridged account on the days when she was in Medjugorje. For Vicka, it lasted until April 10th, 1985, and is a long account which filled three notebooks. Up to this day, the visionaries have not received authorization to reveal the contents.

Monday, January 10, 1983
Confidences from Mirjana to Fr. Tomislav Vlasic: During the 18 months that I saw the Gospa, a great intimacy was established between us. I felt her maternal love. I could ask her all kinds of questions. Thus I asked her why God was so merciless in sending sinners to Hell for eternity.
“Men who go to Hell no longer want to receive any benefit from God. They do not repent nor do they cease to swear and to blaspheme. They make up their mind to live in Hell and do not at all contemplate leaving it.”
(Man’s refusal is an irreversible choice.)

Questioned on the subject of Purgatory, the Blessed Virgin says:
“There are different levels of which the lowest are close to Hell and the highest gradually draw near to Heaven. It is not on all souls day, but at Christmas, that the greatest numbers of souls leave Purgatory. There are in Purgatory, souls who pray ardently to God, but for whom no relative or friend prays for them on earth. God makes them benefit from the prayers of other people. It happens that God permits them to manifest themselves in different ways, close to their relatives on earth, in order to remind men of the existence of Purgatory, and to solicit their prayers close to God who is just, but good. The majority go to Purgatory. Many go to Hell. A small number go directly to Heaven.”

Wednesday, January 12, 1983
Regarding an American television team: Will they be able to finish without difficulties? “There will be some difficulties, but it will be for the glory of God.”

Thursday, April 21, 1983
“You (the visionaries), must behave well; be pious and set a good example for the faithful.”
Jakov admits that the Blessed Virgin has made remarks to him several times concerning his conduct. She has taught him how to participate at Mass, to pray, and to behave around others.

Sunday, April 24, 1983
Message for an Italian doctor who is present:
“I bless him just as those who work with him at the hospital in Milan, for everything they are doing. Have them continue, and pray. I bless the sick of this hospital, just like the sick for whom you have prayed this evening, and those for whom you will pray.”

Thursday, May 5, 1983
With respect to a sick person from Vienna: The doctor has diagnosed schizophrenia. Some priests think it is a question of diabolical possession.
“It is a diabolic possession. One can succeed only through prayer.”

Wednesday, June 1, 1983
“Dear Children: I hoped that the world would begin to be converted on its own. Do now, everything you can, so that the world can be converted.”

Thursday, June 2, 1983
“Read what has been written about Jesus. Meditate on it, and convey it to others.”

Friday, June 3, 1983
Fr. Vlasic has begun to form a prayer group requested by the Virgin on May 25th. Jakov, Vicka, and Ivanka: What do you expect of Fr. Tomislav? Has he begun well? “Yes, it is good. Have him continue.”

What should one do so that people will not drive away from here the priests who work with faith and love?
“Pray and fast for this intention. I will tell you when the moment comes, what you must do.”

Fr. Tomislav wants to call the parish to prayer and fasting, so that the church recognizes that the events here are supernatural. It is a good way?
“Yes, it is a good way. Have the parish pray for this gift. Have them pray also for the gift of the Holy Spirit so that all those who come here will feel the presence of God.”

Sunday, June 12, 1983
Ivan: May the priests begin new work around the church or must they request authorization from the authorities?
“Do not begin the work until receiving permission from the authorities. Otherwise, someone will inform the latter and the works would be forbidden. Go, and kindly request the authorization. It will be given to you.”

Tuesday, June 14, 1983
Ivan: What do you wish that the priests preach during the ten anniversary days of the first apparitions?
“Have them do what they think is best. It would be good to remind the faithful of the events which have been revealed here in relation to my coming. Have them remind them the reasons for my coming here.”

Spring 1983
“Hasten your conversion. Do not await the sign, which has been announced, for those who do not believe. It will be too late. You who believe, be converted and deepen your faith.”

Friday, June 24, 1983
“The sign will come, you must not worry about it. The only thing that I would want to tell you is to be converted. Make that known to all my children as quickly as possible. No pain, no suffering is too great to me in order to save you. I will pray to my Son not to punish the world; but I beseech you, be converted. You cannot imagine what is going to happen nor what the Eternal Father will send to earth. That is why you must be converted! Renounce everything. Do penance. Express my acknowledgement to all my children who have prayed and fasted. I carry all this to my Divine Son in order to obtain an alleviation of His justice against the sins of mankind.

They represent a great peril for your families. After you have seen them, you cannot pray any more. Give up likewise, alcohol, cigarettes, and pleasure of this kind.”

“The fasting which you are doing in eating fish, instead of meat, is not fasting but abstinence. The true fast consists in giving up all our sins, but one must also renounce himself and make the body participate in it.”

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.”

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

Thursday, March 1, 1984

Tuesday, April 24, 1984
With sadness and with tears:
“So many people, after they have begun here to pray, to be converted, to fast, and do penitence, quickly forget when they return home, and return to their bad habits.”

“The information suffices. People already know enough. Tell them this place is a place of prayer. Pray as much as you can, pray however you can, but pray more always. Each of you could pray even four hours a day. But I know that many do not understand because they think only of living for their work.”

Fr. Tomislav Vlasic then had this conveyed to Our Lady: If I tell this to the people, then they will go away completely.
“Even you do not understand. It is hardly a sixth of your day.”

Wednesday, June 13, 1984
“Dear children, I invite you to pray more, you and the entire parish, until the day of the anniversary. Let your prayer become a sign of offering to God. Dear children, I know that you are all tired. You do not know how to offer yourselves to me. Offer yourselves completely to me these days.”

Friday, July 20, 1984
Late in the evening, on the hill of the apparitions:
“Open your hearts to me, come close. Say in a loud voice your intentions, and your prayers.”

The Blessed Virgin paid close attention to the prayers of the visionaries. When they prayed for the Bishop of Mostar, her eyes were filled with tears. While crying, she tells them:
“You are my little flowers. Continue to pray, my task is lighter because of it.”

Our Lady disappeared into Heaven, still crying, after having blessed everyone with a crucifix.

Sunday, August 5, 1984
The celebration of the second millennium of Mary’s birthday was preceded by three days of fasting and continuous prayer. Seventy priests heard confessions without rest; there were a great number of conversions.
“Never in my life have I cried with sorrow, as I have cried this evening with joy. Thank you!”

In anticipation of this day Our Lady had said:
“The priest who will hear confession will have great joy on that day.”

During these 3 days of fasting and continuous prayer the visionaries say the Blessed Virgin was: Very Joyful. Our Lady repeated:
“I am very happy, continue, continue. Continue to pray and to fast.”

Her joy seemed to have reached a peak Sunday, August 5th. Like a flower when it blooms, and full of joy, Our Lady said:

Saturday, October 20, 1984
“When you pray, you must feel more. Prayer is a conversation with God. To pray means to listen to God. Prayer is useful for you because after prayer everything is clear. Prayer makes one know happiness. Prayer can teach you how to cry. Prayer can teach how to blossom. Prayer is not a joke. Prayer is a dialogue with God.”

Wednesday, October 24, 1984
At 10:00pm in the evening at Krizevac:
“My dear children, I am so happy to see you pray. Pray with me so that God’s plan may be realized, thanks to your prayers and to mine. Pray more, and more intensely.”

Sometime in October 1984
“I would like to guide you spiritually, but I would not know how to help you, if you are not open. It suffices for you to think, for example, where you were with your thoughts yesterday during Mass. When you go to Mass, your trip from home to church should be a time of preparation for Mass. You should also receive Holy Communion with an open and pure heart; purity of heart and openness. Do not leave the church without an appropriate act of thanksgiving. I can help you only if you are accessible to my suggestions; I cannot help you if you are not open. The most important in spiritual life is to ask for the gift of the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit comes, then peace will be established. When that occurs, everything changes around you. Things will change.”

Monday, December 17, 1984

God blesses in a special way, all those who are here. You can return happily to your homes. You do not immediately understand the reasons. Offer your prayers of thanksgiving for next week.”

Wednesday, January 9, 1985
“I thank the faithful for having come to church in very bad and cold weather.”

Sometime in January or February 1985
To Vicka, at the time of a prayer meeting on the mountain:
“My dear children, satan is strong. He wishes, with all his strength, to destroy my plans. Pray only, and do not stop doing it. I will also pray to my Son, so that all the plans that I have begun will be realized. Be patient and persevere in prayer. Do not permit satan to take away your courage. He works very hard in the world. Be on your guard.”

Sunday, February 3, 1985
“I wish for Father Slavko to stay here, for him to guide the life and to assemble all the news, so that when I leave there will be a complete image of everything that has happened here. I am also praying now for Slavko and for all those who work in this parish.”

Sunday, February 17, 1985
“Pray, dear children, so that God’s plan may be accomplished, and all the works of satan be changed in favor of the glory of God.”

Monday, February 25, 1985
“For next week, I invite you to say these words: ‘I love God in everything’. With love, one obtains everything. You can receive many things, even the most impossible. The Lord wishes for all the parishes to surrender to Him, and I too, in Him. I desire it. Each evening, make your examination of conscience, but only to give thanks in acknowledgment for everything that His love offers us at Medjugorje.”

February – March 1985
“Dear children! You have always prayed that I not abandon you. Now I ask of you, in turn, not to abandon me. Satan wants especially during these days to disperse you. For that, pray very much these days.”

“Dear children, I came again to thank you. You have not yet understood what that means. To give joy to my heart. It is a very great thing. I ask you only to persevere in prayer. As long as you pray I will have words for you. Good-bye, I thank you dear children. My love for you is unlimited; be happy with me, because I am happy with you.”

Saturday, March 9, 1985
“You can receive a grace immediately, or in a month, or in ten years. I do not need a hundred or two hundred Our Father’s. It is better to pray only one, but with a desire to encounter God. You should do everything out of love. Accept all annoyances, all difficulties, everything, with love. Dedicate yourselves to love.”

Wednesday, March 13, 1985
Message addressed to Vicka, when a mistake by Ivan, who was frightened, caused a stir.
“Pray, pray, pray! It is only with prayer that you will be able to avoid Ivan’s error. He should not have written. And after that had to clearly acknowledge it, so as not to plant any doubts.”

Monday, March 18, 1985
To Mirjana:
“The rosary is not an ornament for the home, as one often time limits himself to using it. Tell everyone to pray it.”

“Right now, many are greatly seeking money, not only in the parish, but in the whole world. Woe to those who seek to take everything from those who come, and blessed are those from whom they take everything.”
(This relates to the exploitation of some pilgrims.)

“May the priests help you because I have entrusted to you a heavy burden, and I suffer from your difficulties. Ivan did not make a big mistake. I have sufficiently reprimanded him for the error. It is not necessary to scold him anymore.”

Monday, March 25, 1985 (Feast of the Annunciation)
“Through my joy and the joy of this people, I say to all of you this evening, I love you, and I wish you well.”
