Caritas Silver Jubilee: What Happened on December 1, 1988

December 1, 2011 A.D.

Medjugorje visionary Marija stayed in the home of Caritas of Birmingham’s founder and his wife from November 18, 1988 to January 26, 1989. These apparitions were connected to a question our founder had asked Our Lady in Medjugorje on October 6, 1986, and Her response. To read the full story, visit here. While in our founder’s home in 1989, Our Lady indicated to Marija for a community to begin here. Our Lady set forth a foundation upon which the community’s way of life would be built, through inspiration given to our founder, in the messages that She gave in these three months of 1988-89.

What Happened on December 1, 1988

The apparition took place at 10:30 a.m. in the Bedroom. Our Lady came and was very happy. With Her hands extended, She prayed over everyone and blessed them. All present, especially the sick, were recommended to Our Lady by Marija and Our Lady prayed The Lord’s Prayer and the Glory Be. Our Lady also blessed the religious objects which were brought to the site. She made the Sign of the Cross and as She returned to Heaven, Our Lady said, “Go in peace.” Our Lady gave no message this day.

Driveway to hell

Not everyone was happy about Our Lady’s apparitions. This sign was placed in a neighbor’s driveway, who lived near the home of our founder, by one who professed no belief in God. There were many prayers said for this man by the pilgrims who walked past his sign each day on their way to the Field.
