Caritas Silver Jubilee: What Happened on November 30, 1988

What Happened on November 30, 1988


The apparition was at 10:30 p.m. in the Bedroom. Our Lady came and was very happy. She blessed and prayed over everyone. Marija recommended all those present to Our Lady and She prayed The Lord’s Prayer and the Glory Be. Our Lady extended Her arms and prayed in Hebrew over everyone. This was the second time Our Lady prayed in Hebrew in the Bedroom. The first time was on November 21, 1988. No explanation is given when She does this. Her message given on November 30, 1988:


“I wish that all your life be love, only love. Everything that you do, do it with love. In every little thing, see Jesus and His example. You also do as Jesus did. He died out of love for you. You also offer all you do with love to God, even the smallest little things of everyday life.”


Then Our Lady made the Sign of the Cross and left saying, “Go in peace.”

This message has become for many their favorite message of all messages over the course of Our Lady of Medjugorje’s apparitions.For more insight into the November 30, 1988 message click to read Special: Just a Peek

Pilgrims facing the house from the Field, 1988-1989

When Our Lady was appearing in the home of our founder, at the time of the apparition each day the pilgrims who were in the Field would actually kneel facing towards the house. Most people gathered each day in the center of the Field near the Pine Tree next to Our Lady’s statue. From this time, thereafter, Our Lady’s statue is the spot where Our Lady has continued to appear when Her apparitions have been in the Field, and where the pilgrims gather still today for prayer events at Caritas.

This picture captures the moment of the apparition on January 14, 1989. In order to relay to people that the apparition was beginning, white Christmas lights forming the word “Mir” which means “Peace” in the Croatian language, were attached to the outdoor porch of the home. These lights would be plugged in at the moment Marija went into ecstasy. At the sign of these lights, silence would cover the Field. Marija would always ask Our Lady’s blessing upon all those in the Field. After the apparition ended, someone from the house would come out and share with everyone in the Field what Our Lady did and said that day.

Remarkably, in this picture sent in by a pilgrim, in the treeline exactly where the house where Our Lady was appearing is located, a perfectly formed circle is visible within the trees. Looking through the trees, the skylights of the home can be seen which locates the house for the reader. Many, many signs were given to pilgrims during these months of Our Lady’s presence, such as this one. Their stories spread and drew more and more people to come to experience Our Lady’s apparitions for themselves.

  1. Seeing this photo of Apparition time in the field is almost identical to the one Caritas took on Apparition hill during one of Ivan’s prayer group apparitions. In both there is a circle in the centre of the photo. At first I thought it might be a camera artifact but now I think it is something else. A sign given by Our Lady perhaps 🙂
