Caritas Silver Jubilee: What Happened on February 15, 2009


What Happened on February 15, 2009


Marija spoke after the apparition today. When the apparition ended, all those present moved to the living room and took whatever space was available, on chairs and couches, on steps leading upstairs, on the floor or leaning against a wall. The living room was filled with very attentive faces.

Marija’s Description of the Apparition on Sunday, February 15, 2009 in the Bedroom

In moment of apparition when Our Lady come I recommend all our intentions and Our Lady pray over us and She bless us all.

The apparition lasted one minute and 20 seconds. Our Lady said tomorrow’s apparition would be, “Same time. Same place.”


Today’s apparition was typical of what Marija normally experiences on a daily basis with Our Lady. The apparition lasted less than two minutes, Our Lady came, She blessed and She left. However, it is always sweet to hear from Marija the words of Our Lady in regards to Marija’s question, “When and where do you wish to have the apparition tomorrow?” Our Lady’s response: “Same time, same place.”

It became an everyday routine that after the apparition, Marija would go into the living room and tell stories about her experiences with Our Lady. Some, hearing Marija was here and driving all night long to come to the Field, never dreamed they would be picked and invited into the Bedroom for the apparition, or be able to be so close to Marija and hear her speak. It was a beautiful intimate experience—and the surprise from the beginning of Our Lady’s visit on February 11, 2009 continued in the lives of many people who with a spontaneous decision to come just to receive Her blessing while in the Field, found themselves ushered into Her actual presence. Here are just a few of the testimonies we received after this grace-filled week with Our Lady in Her apparitions.

For the believer, everything speaks to us biblically. A young family from San Antonio, Texas had heard about Caritas from a friend. They had wanted to come for a visit and suddenly felt compelled to drop everything and come now. They were walking around the Field on Sunday, February 15th, when a community member spotted them and asked if they knew Marija was here. They had not known and they were invited to attend the apparition the following day. We received a letter from them after they returned home from their visit.

Dear A Friend of Medjugorje and Family, and Marija and Family,
My family would like to thank you again for inviting us to be witnesses to Our Lady’s divine love. When we arrived to Caritas on Sunday, no one was around. It was strange, but we feel Our Lady wanted it like that. We sat alone as a family on Sunday, February 15, 2009, feeling Our Blessed Mothers’ presence as the wind blew, and we read Her message etched on the altar in the Field. “When the wind blows know that I am with you…” dated February 15, 1984. Here we are exactly 25 years later from that date of Her message. She is so here with us all. Thanks for saying “yes” to Our Lord and His Mother, Our Blessed Virgin Mary. She has been instrumental in showing and teaching us how to come to Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Many blessings to you all, and as a family we are spreading Her love to everyone we meet in San Antonio, Texas. We hope to see you again real soon.
Much Love in Jesus and Mary,

San Antonio, Texas

In a separate letter, the husband of the wife above wrote:

“Our trip to Caritas was unexpected. I wanted to go fishing at the coast to get away, but was compelled to go to Caritas. I only heard of Caritas through my wife, and as soon as I mentioned about going, my wife was already packing. There was a feeling of urgency that we had to go. I just finished a construction project that took us three months to do, including weekends. It was hard…Long story short, we show up on Sunday afternoon and my wife met one of the community and we heard of the surprise. We did not know that Marija had come in…We are very excited that we were in the place where our Blessed Mother had appeared. After coming back home we feel completely different as if we are suppose to pass the graces…Thank you for saying yes to Her and allowing our Mother to bring us closer to our Lord. May god bless you all.

Some call it the altar of the family—the bed from which life begins, and until just recent times, where mortal life ended and eternal life began. When a soul enters the world, so much of its destiny is determined by what kind of family he is born into. The visionaries have told us that children learn of God and of God’s love primarily through the love that is expressed between their father and mother. In so many marriages today, a child never experiences love between his parents, and therefore, never learns to trust or believe in a loving God. That is why Our Lady appears in this Bedroom, to lead Her children to understand the grave responsibility of the parents to teach their children, through the love and respect they show to the other, that God created them, loves them, and desires them always to be with Him forever in Heaven.

  3. Listen people of Caritas to you who criticize and question priests more than any other religious community. Note is he first pat of the message also how many times the Blessed Mother uses “ALL of you, ALL of my children, ALL, ALL, ALL.” I hate to say it but your group were the first who came to my mind when reading this message and how I have repeatedly heard at your gatherings and in your writings how YOU seem to point to yourselves as THE one and only source. Also the part about the BVM needing HUMBLE Apostles. I of course examine myself first but thought of the things I have heard from a group who is supposed to be of Mary:For the sake of Jesus, for the sake of my Son, love those whom He has called and long for the blessing only from the hands which He has consecrated. Do not permit evil to come to reign. Anew I repeat %u2013 only along side your shepherds will my heart triumph. Do not permit evil to separate you from your shepherds. Thank you.%u201D

  4. Mother Mary, thank you so much for caring for every child of the earth. We need your help and with your Holy Mantle, with the Very Precious Blood of Jesus, Your Beloved Son, Our Saviour, please cover us all and bring us back Home to Our Father, in the name of Beloved Jesus, for all the sacrifices He offered to Our Father that we have and live eternal life in the Kingdom of God. (with all my family: Virginie, Stephanie, Natacha, Julien, grand son Paul, husband Georges, Jean Marie, Jean, Eva, Eglantine, Martin, Jonathan and myself Marie), my brothers and sisters, emes du purgatoire, toute la famille du Sacre Coeur de Jesus). All Glory and Honour to Saint Trinity with all archangels, angels, prophets, apostles, disciples, all saints and la Cour Celeste. Thank you Coeurs Unis de Jesus et de Marie. Que la Gloire de Dieu reflecte sur chacun de nous!

  5. Thank You Mother for Your great love for us Your children. You are showing us a new life style, to keep us close to You and Your Beloved Son. Thank You most of all for making us vigilant. Thank You very much for reminding us to be close to our shepherds. We Love You

  6. Thank You Holy Mother, for your great concern about us. I want to study and practice every word of your message. This is to the whole world. To her children. Hope every man reads this and get close to Jesus our Lord through our Holy Mother. Every one who get these messages must send to the people they know. Thanks and May God Bless and lead your path dear friends of Medjugorje.

  7. Thank you, Mama Mary. Now I know how I can be healed. One question…who are the shepherds that the Holy Mother is referring to? Only the priests or others too?

  8. Thank you Dear Mother, you have answered all the questions I have asked you in my heart. I will not be afraid, I will go forward with confidence, knowing you are near. THANK YOUThank you dear Friend of Medjugorje and all those working in the vineyard..Thank you
