Caritas Silver Jubilee: What Happened on February 16, 2009


What Happened on February 16, 2009


Our Lady again smiles today. Among the many pilgrims that came today for the apparition, there were several families with many children. With the children in the community, there were already a bunch of children, but there seemed to be another 15 or so present for the apparition. With all those children, the Rosary wasn’t as “meditative” as some may have liked, but just as Jesus always liked having innocent children around Him, so too Our Lady. Marija presented all the children to Our Lady in the apparition on this day, and Our Lady immediately smiled.


Marija’s Description of the Apparition on February 16, 2009 in the Bedroom

In moment of apparition when Our Lady come, I recommend to Our Lady all of us, in special way, all kids and Our Lady beginning to smile. She pray for long time over us and after She give blessing and She said “Go in peace,” and She leave.

The apparition lasted 4 minutes, 17 seconds. Our Lady again said, “Same time. Same place.” for tomorrow’s apparition. Marija graciously accepted the invitation to speak to the pilgrims and community after the apparition once again. But first, the wife of the founder wanted to get a picture of all the children in the apparition today. These were the little cherubs Our Lady had smiled at and blessed today.

The apparition on Monday, February 16. Though the apparition on February 15 was much shorter than the other days, today Our Lady graced us with a long apparition. There were many families with their children present today, outside of the community families. When Marija prayed for all the children present, Our Lady immediately smiled.

These were among the children whom Our Lady smiled at this day. What other gift could a parent want for their child? One mother made a long 16-hour car ride from Texas on her own with her two young children under the age of two just to have them blessed in the apparition. Marija, with the wife and daughter-in-law of our founder helped to keep the lively brood of children happy.

Marija invited pilgrims to share some of their own experiences with Our Lady after the apparition today. She becomes, with the rest of those gathered, one of the listeners of the stories that followed sitting with the daughter and granddaughter of Caritas’ founder. Before everyone departed, Marija led us in a prayer to Our Lady.

    It was a blessing for me to be with you in July and I will be in the cenacle chapel in adoration of Our Lord tomorrow morning. God has blessed me in many ways and I offer to each of you my sacrifice of not being present with you as I desire to be.When I read your message, knowing I could not come, I smiled because I know I will be in your prayers. The beauty and tranquility of the mountain is a blessing to each of us and I look forward to my next visit. Thank you for the sacrifice each of you make daily for the saving of our souls. grace schnakenberg
