A Report on the First Day of the Novena, Sunday, June 16, 2024

June 16, 2024 A.D.


There were thousands of people up on the mountain tonight, June 16, 2024.  Many, many Croatians were present and could be heard praying.  Medjugorje visionary, Marija, arrived around 10:00 p.m. to lead the Rosary.


After singing a few songs, Marija began the Joyful mysteries.  Each decade was prayed in a different language.

This is a still frame taken on a 16mm camera, during the filming of The Lasting Sign in 1988. Rocks like this have greeted millions of pilgrims through the years in Medjugorje, from every walk of life. A Friend of Medjugorje has broken through the barriers of religion and placed Our Lady in the hands of many non-religious people, political figures, people from the highest places in society, to peasants. In 2009, a Friend of Medjugorje wrote a piece titled, This is My Time, which was meant to introduce people to Our Lady, and which can be read here.

After the Joyful Mysteries were finished, Marija had several people in different languages pray the St. Francis prayer for peace (Make me a channel of your peace…).


We then began a second Rosary.  Marija began praying the 7-7-7 prayers after we finished the second rosary.


Our Lady came at around 11:37 p.m. June 16, 2024, and the apparition lasted 6-7 minutes.  The following is Marija’s description of the apparition.


“When Our Lady came, I recommended all of us, all our intentions, all that we hold in our hearts, all our sacrifices and all we have done for peace.  Our Lady extended Her hands above all of us and She prayed over all of us in Her own Motherly language, Aramaic, for a long time.  Our Lady asks us to come tomorrow even in a bigger number because She needs our prayers.  Our Lady blessed us all and She left to Heaven.”


It was awesome! That is it for now.


Love, from Medjugorje



From A Friend of Medjugorje:


The fact Marija told us that Our Lady asks us to come tomorrow, June 17, 2024,  in ever bigger numbers means that Our Lady needs our prayers in this time.


The Medjugorje Bulletin on Mej.com, dated June 15, 2024, stated strongly to spread this announcement of Our Lady’s call to everyone you know.


In this way, ever increasing numbers will be in union with Our Lady during Her 11:30 PM apparitions on Apparition Mountain each night, through June 24th, the eve of the Anniversary of Our Lady’s Medjugorje apparitions.


This call to prayer with Our Lady needs to snowball, bigger and bigger each day, to every nation in the world.


As you spread this Heavenly event, tell your friends, family, priests, parishioners, etc., to also spread the news. Our Lady will respond with greater graces as greater numbers join this prayer.


We will continue to keep you updated on these special apparitions.


In Our Lady’s Love,

Friend of Medjugorje

Continue spreading everywhere Our Lady’s call to the world. Be sure to send to your national and local news outlets, radio talk shows, press, etc. You can e-mail, saying where you are from – your states, counties, cities and villages. Doing this will show the media this is an across-the-world event. You can simply write, “For the past days, the Virgin Mary is having apparitions to visionary Marija and calling people in an extraordinary way to pray to bring peace. Thousands of people in Medjugorje on the mountain, joined by millions of people across the world, are listening to Marija from the Virgin Mary’s call for peace.” Use your own words to the media. You want to keep your message brief. Every one of you can make a showing for all countries. If each one of you writes emails and makes phone calls, this will influence millions more people to be praying. Everyone also call and email all bishops and priests and inform them that prayer is what Our Lady wants to bring peace to the world and healing to the world. To all the contacts you make by phone and email, give them the most critical information the media can quickly get. They will be a one stop place for everything they will need for their report. Tell them to go to the largest Medjugorje center in the world – Medjugorje.com. It is the #1 website. Also, media people can be contacted at Caritas in Alabama at 205-672-2000, as well as contacts who are living in the village of Medjugorje.
