The day began with the pilgrims climbing to the Cross on the mountain. Together we prayed the Patriotic Rosary at the top. The rest of the day was spent in prayer for our Nation.
Later, we met in the Field of Apparitions to pray in preparation for Our Lady’s apparition to Marija. The Rosary began at 6 o’clock PM. Just before the apparition, we prayed the Solemn Act of Consecration, which a Friend of Medjugorje wrote in 2008.
At 6:41 PM, Marija began praying the 7,7,7 and Our Lady appeared almost immediately after Marija began praying. The apparition lasted a little over four minutes. The following is Marija’s description of the apparition:
“In the moment when Our Lady came, you saw we began to pray, and Our Lady immediately came. And She immediately prayed over us for long time. And She turn over four part [ways]. So, She blessed I think, all us, but all Nation. And after, She pray one other time. She did not give a message. We are so asking Our Lady for a message for us. But I think the message that is most important is the blessing from Our Lady, and that we pray with Our Lady. And Our Lady said, “Tomorrow, same time, same place.”
Marija clarified to a Friend of Medjugorje afterwards, specifically about Our Lady’s actions during the apparition.
Marija explained that Our Lady turned all four directions and gave a blessing.
The apparition for July 5, 2023, will again take place in the Field of Apparitions, near the Tree. The Rosary will begin at 6:00 PM Central Time USA.
