Apparition and Message Given to Mirjana on the Day for Nonbelievers

Large crowds on the mountains, in the streets, and at St. James Church on May 1st, 2012, indicated that Mirjana’s May 2nd, 2012 apparition would draw a very sizeable throng at Blue Cross. Last night, it is estimated there were more than 600 pilgrims at Blue Cross by 10:00 p.m. The crowd swelled to between 15,000 and 20,000 people by apparition time, with pilgrims stacked one on top of the other around the Blue Cross area, well up the mountain, and spilling out into the streets. Mirjana arrived at approximately 8:25 a.m. She quickly knelt down and prayed with the crowd. Our Lady appeared at 8:45 a.m., and the apparition lasted approximately 5 minutes. Perhaps overwhelmed with emotion from the presence of Our Lady, Mirjana almost fainted after the apparition ended. She cried for a few minutes and then began smiling again with a sad look on her face.

Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s May 2, 2012
Apparition and Message Given to Mirjana on the Day for Nonbelievers

“Dear children! With motherly love I implore you to give me your hands, permit me to lead you. I, as a mother, desire to save you from restlessness, despair and eternal exile. My Son, by His death on the Cross, showed how much He loves you; He sacrificed Himself for your sake and the sake of your sins. Do not keep rejecting His sacrifice and do not keep renewing His sufferings with your sins. Do not keep shutting the doors of Heaven to yourselves. My children, do not waste time. Nothing is more important than unity in my Son. I will help you because the Heavenly Father is sending me so that, together, we can show the way of grace and salvation to all those who do not know Him. Do not be hard hearted. Have confidence in me and adore my Son. My children, you can not be without the shepherds. May they be in your prayers every day. Thank you.”

“…Do not waste time…”

Our Lady of Medjugorje May 2, 2012

The message of Our Lady today speaks strongly to the situation the world finds itself in. Over three months ago, A Friend of Medjugorje began writing a newsletter with thoughts that had been formulating over a long period of time, that predated much of what has transpired over the past 12 months in our own nation, the United States. Most people could not have imagined even a year ago, that the government of our nation would mandate that Catholics would be forced to pay for abortions. Yet, following the messages of Our Lady, this came as no surprise, especially because of Our Lady’s words,

February 2, 2012

“…pride has come to rule…”

What began as a newsletter, led right into events that are coming to light with each passing day as to how “pride” intends to “rule.” The result is A Friend of Medjugorje’s new book, They Fired the First Shot 2012. This is not a theological writing, or opinions, but is taken from “pride’s” own documents and words that will show the evil mosaic that is forming into a picture of a frightening future for us all without Our Lady’s intervention to save us. What follows is a short excerpt from They Fired the First Shot 2012, made more profound in light of Our Lady’s words given today. – Caritas of Birmingham


We all know the familiar passage, “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Many are looking to the past and are seeing parallels to the atmosphere forming in our own nations to what was lived in other nations before tyranny came to rule. Our Lady’s words today are words of warning. She says that the world is rejecting Her Son’s Sacrifice and renewing His sufferings with sin that goes on without repentance. Our Lady has told us we have no future without Jesus. Our Lady also has taught that it is good to reflect upon the mistakes of the past so that we can choose a better future for ourselves. In They Fired the First Shot 2012, an excerpt from a priest by the name of Fr. Eric Flood is used to frame the time in which the Church began losing respect of the citizens in Germany and how so many believers ended up succumbing to the Nazi pseudo-religion, leaving the faith of Jesus Christ behind. This is happening in our time, but Our Lady has come to raise the Standard of Her Son, the Cross, for the world to see, to encourage us to follow Her, because “the Heavenly Father is sending me so that, together, we can show the way of grace and salvation to all those who do not know Him…”

With Confidence in Our Lady and Her Way,
A Friend of Medjugorje
Who is a Friend of Medjugorje?

Excerpt from the book They Fired the First Shot 2012:

Fr. Flood writes about the confrontation the Catholic Church now faces in our time, and the seeking of a legal means to silence Her. He writes:

“An example of how this loss of respect for the Church can occur may be seen in Germany in the mid-twentieth century.”

“In his book, Christ in Dachau, Fr. John Lenz, who was arrested for being a Catholic priest in Austria and subsequently imprisoned in Dachau, has profound insights for our consideration. He begins by saying that evil does not just spring up in a nation overnight and without reason. Rather, he says, that ‘if our Catholic Faith had really been something living, something vital to our very existence, it is doubtful whether even a proportion of our people would have fallen prey to the Nazi pseudo-religion. We had been too lukewarm,’ and many had ‘become blind to truth.’

“The lukewarmness of faith produced a cowardice in resisting, and for those who had rejected their Catholic Faith or stopped practicing it, the emptiness in their lives made them easy prey to Hitler’s new religion of power…

“‘Only those who lived in the light of Faith could recognize the danger behind the Nazi propaganda, harmless enough though it might at first appear.’ As ‘no one in his senses could expect good out of evil, or happiness and prosperity at the hands of a man who denies God…even ‘good Catholics’ were led astray, for their religion had long ceased to be something which really inspired their lives and they had lost sight of the truth. Put to the test, their faith simply folded up.’

“Hence, the dark Nazi regime serves as a warning to future nations to maintain faith in Christ. The demise of a nation easily begins at the basic level of people rejecting Christ as their true King and Leader. Without His governing right hand, the lack of belief among the people can quickly spread throughout society and unto its leaders.

“Thus, it is imperative that Christ and His Church be unified with the State for the well-being of a nation.” 1

The Church must awaken because this ‘is’ the battle. The faithful must repent and turn aside from our lukewarm Christian life…To defeat this assault (on Christian liberty) as Catholics and all Christians and people of good will, we should have strategies to prevail in our faith and principles to live by which are simple. No need for a complex formula. One goal, one aim. A strategy, like the heroic Christians of the past:

We win. They lose. Nothing less.

This is what caused the preverbial saying of the Indians, “If you can’t beat em, join em.” When Christianity began, this is what the early Christians did, though small in numbers. Their strength was so mighty that others who fought them left the Caesars to join them. The Christian ranks swelled, throughout history, when they were strong, and they decreased when they were weak. Emperor Constantine came to know this and pagan Rome became strong through becoming Christian Rome. Fr. Eric, quoted earlier, explained this in his newsletter for the United States being a great nation.

“Fr. John Lenz goes as far as saying that ‘those who did not encounter Christ in the depths of the misery and horror of Dachua missed the most wonderful experience of all…It is a triumph of good over evil, of truth over falsehood.’ Christ in Dachau proclaims the victory of God and His Church. Souls were tried in the crucible of suffering, and many found Christ.

“The Nazi regime which rejected Christ collapsed. The Catholic Church united to Christ remained. Hence, the strength of a nation is dependent upon the faithfulness of its people to Christ. When the people are strong in the Faith, the government will likely be strong; when the people are weak, the government will naturally follow suit.


“Belief in the Catholic Faith cannot be considered a threat to the life of a nation; rather, it is necessary for its survival.” 2

Our nation became weak by our not living our faith. Tyranny is rising up to fill the void that formally was filled with followers of Christ. So where do we start to win? First, with deep repentance, then amend our lives with fasting, prayer, peace and penance. We must have both a strong daily structured and spontaneous prayer life. Next, we look at where evil began to win and where we began to lose. It is our Judeo-Christian principles that is to be applied into the fabric of our institutions, from the highest echelons of government to the least. It is what makes this country the beacon of hope for the world. And through this nation, the whole world will fall into tyranny or rise up for a new springtime for the Church and the nation. The United States of America is the wall evil must knock down to flood the earth with evil. But do not mistake what is written here, that the United States can be saved by any other way or method than by Christ being in the heart of its people, and thereby the United States as a nation. It is the Christ, the King whom we recognize as the reason for our being a great nation. We are entering a period that apart from Christ, there is no future.

You Won’t be the Same Person After You Read This Book…

They Fired the First Shot 2012 A Friend of Medjugorje, founder of Caritas of Birmingham, has announced the upcoming release of a new book that is a shocking, sobering, and disconcerting look at what lies ahead of all of us in the very near future if we, as a people, do not summon the will to change our ways, rejecting the increasingly oppressive measures being taken against us in our nation. Based in real facts that are just now coming to light but woven together as only A Friend of Medjugorje can do with the wisdom from Our Lady’s messages, the new book entitled, They Fired the First Shot 2012, is a revelation for our time. As one who had a preview of the book said, “I don’t feel that I am the same person I was yesterday after reading this book. Everything has changed…myself included.” The release date has not been set yet, but A Friend of Medjugorje is in the final stages of writing and has stated he feels Our Lady is behind the writing of this book more so than any other writing he has authored within the last 25 years.

Our Lady said on February 2, 2012:

“…pride has come to rule…”

They Fired the First Shot 2012 gives the blueprint of how evil intends to rule. The plans have been made. The implementation is not just around the corner, it is here.

Pictures from the May 2, 2012 Apparition of Our Lady to Mirjana

Pilgrims Arriving May 2, 2012

Pilgrims walking to Apparition Mountain in the pre-dawn hours of May 2, 2012 to be at Our Lady’s second of the month apparition to Medjugorje visionary, Mirjana.
Our Lady calls the plan of Medjugorje “a ‘great’ plan for the salvation of all ‘mankind,’ and we cannot even begin to comprehend the magnitude of our roles. She states that we are to pray to know what our roles are.

January 25, 1987

“…You are not able to comprehend how great your role is in God’s design. Therefore, dear children, pray so that in prayer you may be able to comprehend what God’s plan is in your regard…”

It is enough to make your heart stop—knowing that everyone in this happening of Our Lady, is chosen by God and that we who are chosen, not politicians and those who hold important positions, will change the world.”

From What Do We Do Now? by A Friend of Medjugorje

Apparition of Our Lady to Mirjana, May 2, 2012

Mirjana’s face lights up as Our Lady appears before her, this morning, May 2, 2012. As happens almost every second of the month, pilgrims arrived the evening before and kept an all night vigil with prayers and singing to prepare the way for Our Lady to come into their hearts. Despite stiff bodies and aching backs from their night on the mountain, when Mirjana arrives, joy and peace fill the heart and every inconvenience is forgotten in those few moments with Our Lady.

Mirjana seeing Our Lady May 2, 2012

No matter how hard we try, it is impossible to fully grasp who it is that Mirjana is seeing at this moment. The Mother of Jesus, the Queen of Heaven, the Woman of Revelation, Her beauty, Her love…

“Many of us know the principles of humility and obedience, yet find it difficult to practice. Yet, if we obey Our Lady and do as She has asked us, to ‘meditate each day on the life of Jesus, while praying the Rosary,’ and to ‘read Sacred Scripture, live it…,’ we will find strength and inspiration to live in humility and obedience.

“If only for moments of the day we reflected on Mary, the Immaculate Conception, the greatest human, outside of Jesus Himself, to ever walk the earth, the Queen of Heaven, the Queen of the Angels, the Queen of the Universe, we would find many reasons for us to strive for these virtues. In Her greatness before God, She always only recognized Herself in lowliness.”

From Don’t Tell Me What To Do! by A Friend of Medjugorje

Mirjana in ecstasy May 2, 2012

Our Lady, on five occasions in Her message today, told us what not to do: Do not keep rejecting His (Jesus’) sacrifice…do not keep renewing His sufferings by your sins…Do not keep shutting the doors of Heaven to yourselves…do not waste time…Do not be hard hearted…”

“Our Lady gives us directives to overcome any entanglements that satan tries to draw us towards. But it is up to us to listen and follow Her advice. We are free. We must make the decision to follow Our Lady in freedom. It is not the easiest path, but it is the one that guarantees our inheritance into the Kingdom of God as His children.”

From Our Lady’s 7 Steps to…Set the Captives Free by A Friend of Medjugorje

In response to what “not” to do, Our Lady gives us what “to do” that will lead us on the right path: “…give me your hands…permit me to lead you…have confidence in me…adore my Son…”

May 2, 2012 Mirjana seeing Our Lady

Mirjana is fully absorbed in Our Lady as she receives this month’s message. It is a serious message full of warnings and exhortations to impress upon us the need for personal reflection concerning the path mankind is following.

“This is how satan leads man without his notice, step by step. Through vanity, man’s heart grows hard. When his heart hardens, love grows cold. Without love, hatred enters his heart. When hatred is in his heart, he no longer can believe, and his faith dies. When faith dies, he becomes enslaved to satan. This is why Our Lady speaks so strongly to us. She wants us to wake-up and realize how satan weaves his web ever so slowly, so patiently, with things that are seemingly so insignificant. In twenty-two years of apparitions (this was written in 2001), there has been only one Bible verse that Our Lady has made specific reference to, even requesting of us to read it every Thursday.

August 5, 1986

“Read each Thursday the Gospel of Matthew, where it is said: ‘No one can serve two masters…You cannot serve God and money.”
