Caritas Silver Jubilee: What Happened on December 3, 1988


December 3, 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 3, 1988

The apparition was at 10:30 p.m. in the Bedroom. Our Lady came and was very happy. Marija recommended all those present to Our Lady. Marija asked Our Lady if She would pray over each individual as She had done yesterday. Very pleased, Our Lady smiled. She looked at everyone and began to pray over each one individually with Her hands over them. Our Lady prayed The Lord’s Prayer and the Glory Be. The message:

“Dear children, I give you my love, so you give it to others.”

Marija asked if Our Lady would appear tomorrow in the morning. Our Lady smiled and said:

“Yes, at 10:40 as in Medjugorje.”

(The time, 10:40 a.m. Central Time, corresponds to the same moment of the apparition in Medjugorje.)

Then Our Lady made the Sign of the Cross saying, “Go in peace,” and She left. Marija’s voice was beautiful, gentle, full of love and intensity when she talked about the apparition just after Our Lady left. All felt Our Lady’s presence and sensed that She was happy in a special way. Those gathered really felt Our lady gave them Her love. One witness said he felt as though love permeated even the walls of the Bedroom.
