Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s October 2, 2014
Apparition and Message Given through Mirjana on the Day for Nonbelievers
Acrisp night in Medjugorje gave way to a beautiful morning today, October 2, 2014. Pilgrims gathered on Apparition Mountain awaiting Our Lady’s apparition to Mirjana watched as the sun illuminated the Cross on Krizevac. Praying and singing went on throughout the night, with prayers in Croatian, English, Italian, Spanish, and Arabic alternating as each group who spent the night waited their turn to pray out loud. Mirjana arrived around 8:00 AM Medjugorje time, and Our Lady appeared a little after 8:30. The apparition lasted five minutes. Following is Our Lady’s message of October 2, 2014, given on the day of prayer for non-believers:
Our Lady blessed everyone and all the religious articles that we brought for blessing.
And Yet It Has Happened…
In light of Our Lady’s message of October 2, 2014, we present to you an excerpt that was recently shared on a Radio WAVE Mejanomics program. It is from a Friend of Medjugorje’s writing, Look What Happened While You Were Sleeping, written in 2006, 8 years ago. Our Lady’s October 2, 2014, message is woven throughout this excerpt that has proven to be prophetic.
“Dear children, with motherly love I implore you, love one another…” Our Lady Queen of Peace, October 2, 2014
In March, 2006, the Texas Academy of Science at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, hosted a gathering for scientists. Dr. Eric R. Pianka gave a speech in which several hundred of his scientist colleagues rose to their feet and gave a standing ovation. Dr. Pianka, a University of Texas evolutionary ecologist and lizard expert, was named and awarded, by The Academy of Texas Scientists, The 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist Award. The central point of Pianka’s speech was to condemn anthropocentrism. 262 Anthropocentrism… is defined as:
“The consideration of man as being the most significant entity of the universe; interpreting or regarding the world in terms of human values and experience.” 263
Pianka condemned the Biblical order of man as stewards over creation, clarifying his belief that man does not have a privileged position in the universe through a story he told. He said his neighbor asked him what good are the lizards that he studies? He answered, “What good are you?” Pianka hammered his point home by exclaiming, “We’re no better than bacteria.” 264
He went on to say that planet earth was being devastated by overpopulation since the sharp increase in population at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and to restore the planet before it’s too late, quick steps must be taken. He said the earth, as we know it will not survive without drastic measures. With over 400 Texas scientists listening intently, he then asserted the only feasible solution to saving the earth is to reduce the population to 10% of the present number. One of the scientists listening, immediately decided to turn science reporter, and began taking notes. Forest Mims realized something was up when at the beginning of Dr. Pianka’s speech, he saw a scene in which a video cameraman, against the cameraman’s objections, was told to turn the video camera off and point it to the ceiling. The organizers wanted to keep the speech closed for the science community. In fact, Pianka said the general public is not yet ready to hear what he was about to say. At the beginning of his speech, Forest Mims worked at his notes. Following is from the notes Mims took of Pianka’s speech:
“War and famine would not do, Pianka explained. Instead, disease offered the most efficient and fastest way to kill the billions that must soon die, if the population crisis is to be solved….”
“AIDS is not an efficient killer, Pianka explained, because it is too slow. His favorite candidate for eliminating 90 percent of the world’s population is airborne Ebola (Ebola Reston), because it is both highly lethal, and it kills in days, instead of years. However, Professor Pianka did not mention that Ebola victims die a slow and torturous death, as the virus initiates a cascade of biological calamities inside the victim that eventually liquefy the internal organs. After praising the Ebola virus for its efficiency at killing, Pianka paused, leaned over the lectern, looked at us, and carefully said, ‘We’ve got airborne 90 percent mortality in humans. Killing humans. Think about that.’
The audience…had been applauding some of his statements. After a dramatic pause (of the above statements), Pianka returned to politics and environmentalism. But he revisited his call for mass death when he reflected on the oil situation. ‘And the fossil fuels are running out,’ he said, ‘so I think we may have to cut back to two billion, which would be about one-third as many people.’ So the oil crisis alone may require eliminating two-thirds of the world’s population. How soon must the mass dying begin if earth is to be saved? Apparently fairly soon, for Pianka suggested he might be around when the killer disease goes to work (Pianka is 67 years old)**…
When Pianka finished his remarks, the audience applauded. It wasn’t merely a smattering of polite clapping that audiences diplomatically reserve for poor or boring speakers. It was a loud, vigorous, and enthusiastic applause…”
“Then came the question and answer session…After noting that the audience did not represent the general population, a questioner asked, ‘What kind of reception have you received as you have presented these ideas to other audiences that are not representative of us?’ Pianka replied, ‘I speak to the converted!’”
“He spoke glowingly of the police state in China that enforces their one-child policy…With this, the questioning was over. Immediately almost every scientist, professor, and college student present stood to their feet and vigorously applauded the man who had enthusiastically endorsed the elimination of 90 percent of the human population. Some even cheered. Dozens then mobbed the professor at the lectern to extend greetings and ask questions. It was necessary to wait a while before I could get close enough to take some photographs…Five hours later, the distinguished leaders of The Texas Academy of Science presented Pianka with a plaque in recognition of his being named The 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist. When the banquet hall, filled with more than 400 people, responded with enthusiastic applause, I walked out in protest.”
“Recently, I exchanged a number of e-mails with Pianka…He replied that Ebola does not discriminate, kills everyone, and could spread to Europe and the Americas by a single infected airplane passenger…(A review of) the majority of his student reviews were favorable, with one even saying, ‘I worship Dr. Pianka.’…The 45-minute lecture before The Texas Academy of Science converted a university biology senior into a Pianka disciple, who then published a blog that seriously supports Pianka’s mass death wish.”
“Let me now remove my reporter’s hat for a moment, and tell you what I think. We live in dangerous times. The national security of many countries is at risk. Science has become tainted…Must now we worry that a Pianka-worshipping former student might someday become a professional biologist, or physician, with access to the most deadly strains of viruses and bacteria? I believe that airborne Ebola is unlikely to threaten the world outside of Central Africa. But scientists have regenerated the 1918 Spanish flu virus that killed 50 million people. There is concern that smallpox might someday return. And what other terrible plagues are waiting out there in the natural world to cross the species barrier, and to which scientists will one day have access?
Meanwhile, I still can’t get out of my mind the pleasant spring day in Texas when a few hundred scientists of the Texas Academy of Science gave a standing ovation for a speaker who they heard advocate for the slow and torturous death of over five billion human beings.” 265
When news broke out of Pianka’s speech, several tried to claim that it was taken out of context, that what he said was misconstrued, and that Mims distorted it. However, these claims are debunked because someone did tape record much of Pianka’s speech which now is documented. 266 The above description of what Pianka said may sound unbelievable to you today… It’s surreal to think about it. No one would have believed this to be possible 30 or even 25 years ago and yet it has happened. Pianka, with 400 college scientists present, has advanced the satanic plan of sustainability of the earth and Smart Growth of the earth’s people.*
****** END OF EXCERPT *******
The above speech by Dr. Eric Pianka was written eight years ago. Today, looking at current world news, it is shocking to see that what was “surreal” just a short time ago, is now a terrifying reality. The first initial announcement of the Ebola outbreak by the World Health Organization was on March 25, 2014. On that day Our Lady said to Medjugorje visionary Marija, in Her monthly message to the world:
March 25, 2014
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed on September 30, 2014, the first case of Ebola to be diagnosed in the United States in a person who had traveled to Dallas, Texas from West Africa. Interesting that this happened in Texas, the same state formwhich Dr. Pianka was names the 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist. The man diagnosed with Ebola, lied to officials at the Liberia airport when asked at three separate checkpoints if he had been in contact with anyone infected with Ebola. He had actually helped care for a woman with advanced Ebola just days before boarding a plane for the U.S. Liberia President, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, after learning this, said:
“The fact that he knew (he was exposed to the virus) and he left the country is unpardonable, quite frankly…With the U.S. doing so much to help us fight Ebola, and again one of our compatriots didn’t take due care, and so, he’s gone there and … put some Americans in a state of fear, and put them at some risk, and so I feel very saddened by that and very angry with him, to tell you the truth.”
This lack of love for neighbor is what Our Lady spoke about October 2, in Her message, as the above story was breaking in real time:
October 2, 2014
Has there ever been in the history of the world where such lack of concern for one’s neighbor can lead to the spiraling out of control a threat upon mankind that can eliminate whole populations of people? Our Lady is warning us:
October 2, 2014
It is interesting that Our Lady spoke about “thirst” and “water” in Her October 2nd message:
What is one of the first treatments given to Ebola victims? Hydration.
“Nothing kills a person faster than dehydration and we see this in full evidence with Ebola victims. Fatality rates range between 50-100%, with most dying of dehydration…” * The disease causes flu-like symptoms including vomiting and diarrhea. This leads to dehydration, failure of the liver and kidneys, and hemorrhaging.
The Balkan War which took place in the early 90’s, greatly impacted the region surrounding Medjugorje. Medjugorje visionary Vicka said that the war started in the hearts of men long before the first guns appeared. Vicka said that physical war was only a manifestation of what was in the hearts of men. War starts in the heart. To prevent physical war, one must choose forgiveness and love in the heart. Can we not see the same in regards to the Ebola virus—and “all of this that is around you, all that is happening”—as the condition of man’s sinful heart manifesting physically in our world? As in the case of the Ebola virus, when the liver and kidneys fail, the body is infected with toxic waste and impurities. This, along with dehydration, is too much for the body to combat. The disease overcomes the body and death ensues. Spiritually, the same happens. A heart that does not repent of its sin, that never is cleansed of its impurity, shrivels up and eventually is led to death. Our Lady has the remedy for this condition. She says,
The collective sin of the world is so great that we are now seeing the physical manifestation of great threats to the existence of all of mankind, the Ebola virus being just one of these.
August 2, 2011
In the March 25, 2014, message already mentioned, given on the same day that the first public announcement was made concerning the Ebola threat, Our Lady said:
March 25, 2014
This “peace” that begins to “rule in your hearts” will eventually manifest physically in the world around you. “God’s blessing will fill you” with healing, new strength, new life. This comes through the “spring of the clear water” that we receive through the Sacraments of the Church—through Confession and the Eucharist—received worthily through the repentance of our sins. The battles we are facing today are not with ISIS, Ebola, oppressive governments, etc. The battle is over the hearts of men. Our Lady said:

Pictures from the October 2, 2014 Apparition
Our Lady’s statue at the Blue Cross the morning of Mirjana’s apparition, October 2, 2014. How many prayers have been said here? How many hearts have been poured out here? How many conversions? How many words the Virgin Mary has spoken here, to Ivan, Mirjana, and individual hearts? Medjugorje: a place of the unburdening of hearts. Our Lady said today:
A group of local Croatians singing during the prayers in preparation for Our Lady’s apparition. It was beautiful to see and hear songs in the Croatian language, and the joy seen on these faces were contagious throughout the whole crowd of pilgrims. Our Lady said of the villagers on March 21, 1985:
Just as Mirjana was arriving, one last song was sung and the priest leading the song announced in Italian, ‘Lift your hands up to Heaven!’ Thousands raised their hands high in worship to God. One can only imagine the thoughts of Heaven in this moment, while Our Lady knew the words She was about to deliver:
Mirjana arriving at the Blue Cross, October 2, 2014. Our Lady said on March 18, 1996:
A Friend of Medjugorje wrote in I Don’t Have to Go to Medjugorje:
“Our Lady’s messages never refer to the visionaries in this way. [referring to Mirjana as “my servant”] For Our Lady to place her in this context is a great honor to Mirjana. She has perhaps attained a certain maturity in her spiritual life of being titled, ‘servant.’ Our Lady does not say untruth or useless words… Mirjana is to be listened to, not ignored or brushed off. satan desires us to pay little attention to the visionaries…”
Mirjana, a servant of Our Lady, a continual witness of Our Lady’s love for nonbelievers. Mirjana, as all the visionaries, should be in everyone’s daily prayers.
Just moments before Our Lady appears, Mirjana readies her heart for the Queen of all Hearts.
Mirjana’s rosary is seen hanging from her pocket. A Friend of Medjugorje says that Medjugorje is a place where public prayer is common practice. It is not an uncommon thing to walk down the trails in Medjugorje and come across groups praying the Rosary out loud. Our Lady has created a culture where one is not ashamed of prayer, and this culture is what She desires to create everywhere in the world.
Just after Our Lady appears, the joy seen on Mirjana’s face makes us aware of the person whom she is seeing – the Queen of Heaven and Earth. Our Lady said recently on September 2, 2014:
Being present with Our Lady brings special graces. Medjugorje visionary Marija, in an interview with a Friend of Medjugorje in 2004 said:
“…Our Lady always says, “You are instruments. I invite you, dear children,” and so Our Lady said that you will become more of an example for others, when you’re back with them. You bring blessings to them of the apparitions. To us, Our Lady gives graces in the apparitions, when we are present with Her. For our family, our loved ones, the people who are near to us in our family, who thought it may not be possible for them to come and be blessed by Our Lady in an apparition, they, too will receive blessings from those who pray for them in preparation for and during the apparition…”
It has been a special grace to be present with Our Lady during the second of the month apparitions. In particular the Caritas pilgrimage group that was present during the October 2 apparition, felt very strongly the presence of Our Lady in a particular way. Being present physically brings blessings to family that are not able to come to Medjugorje. For those able to come, what stops you?
The above picture and the one below, show the split second when Our Lady leaves and goes back to Heaven. The pain seen on Mirjana’s face from having been in the bliss of a Heavenly vision, then coming to the reality of returning to the valley of tears. As often quoted before, Medjugorje Ivan said that it takes him several hours to return to earth after seeing Our Lady. Our prayer experience with Our Lady should be the same, but, also that we never leave Her presence in our everyday lives. Our Lady said on November 2, 2008:
Another “Zacchaeus scene” in Medjugorje. When Zacchaeus climbed the tree to see Jesus, Jesus announced he was coming to Zacchaeus’ home. The acceptance of Jesus’ invitation was responded to by Jesus’ words, “Today salvation has come to this house…” Luke 19:9
When we truly accept Jesus, we accept Our Lady. When we truly accept Our Lady’s invitation, we accept Jesus; the two are inseparable. Drink from Our Lady’s hands, the pure water that She told us today:
Why fear Our Lady or Her invitation? Why have scruples about giving your heart completely to Her? The surest way to Jesus is with Our Lady. Come to Medjugorje, come, come and drink from Her pure hands the spring of water that is Jesus. Come…
