Caritas Silver Jubilee: What Happened on December 16, 1988

What Happened on December 16, 1988


The previous day, when asked about the surgery that Marija was going to be undergoing, Our Lady said to Marija that She would be with her. Today, December 16, 1988, Marija underwent surgery after test results showed that she could donate her kidney to her brother, Andrija. During the operation, with Rosary in her hand and while under anesthesia, Our Lady appeared over Marija while she lay on the operating table. Marija later said Our Lady stayed with her and smiled for what seemed to her about two hours. This is one of the longest apparitions in the Medjugorje phenomenon.

For the next month, except for Christmas Eve, Our Lady did not speak to Marija. She appeared to her each day at Mass during Communion. Then, on January 15, 1989, Our Lady told Marija that the next day She would again give messages. There was great joy in everyone’s hearts.
