Mirjana received this apparition in Portland, Oregon in the United States of America while visiting Father Milan Mikulich who presided at her marriage. Mirjana had been receiving interior locutions on the second day of each month but on this occasion she was graced by an apparition andmessage for the world.
Mirjana told Fr. Milan that Our Lady was referring to the Sacrament of Reconciliation, for Catholics, when She said. “…reconcile and purify your soul.”
Through the years, Our Lady has given several bold and strong messages when the visionaries have had their apparitions in America, as this message given to Mirjana in America shows. Marija’s apparitions in America have been profound, Our Lady being boldly forward in messages given in Alabama about Her Special Blessing and to spread it, which the mentality in Medjugorje has oppressed. Jakov had his last apparition in America. It is viewed by some that Our Lady has done this because the mentality in America is more apt to release what Our Lady says and get the information out.
