Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s June 2, 2011 Message
Given to Mirjana on the Day for Non-Believers


Yesterday afternoon, several severe thunderstorms passed through the village of Medjugorje. Thunder shook the ground and lightening struck everywhere, while rain and hail poured down from the sky. By the time the Evening Services began, the weather started to clear, and those pilgrims who started gathering at the Blue Cross by 8:00-8:30 p.m., watched the stars slowly begin to peek out. The clouds came and went, but by this morning, it was clear that it was going to be a beautiful day. Many more pilgrims gathered around the Blue Cross throughout the night. By 5:00 a.m., a steady stream of pilgrims climbed to the areas surrounding the Blue Cross, looking for a quiet place to begin their prayerful preparation to be in the presence of Our Lady on this special day designated for prayers for non-believers. By 7:00 a.m., thousands of pilgrims could be seen in every available space possible, and still more and more pressed in up to the moment of Our Lady’s apparition to Mirjana. Mirjana arrived at the Blue Cross around 8:40 a.m. The apparition began at 8:47 a.m. and lasted five minutes. The following is Our Lady’s message:

“Dear children! As I call you to prayer for those who have not come to know the love of God, if you were to look into your hearts you would comprehend that I am speaking about many of you. With an open heart, sincerely ask yourselves if you want the living God or do you want to eliminate Him and live as you want. Look around you, my children, and see where the world is going, the world that thinks of doing everything without the Father, and which wanders in the darkness of temptation. I am offering to you the light of the Truth and the Holy Spirit. According to God’s plan I am with you to help you to have my Son, His Cross and Resurrection, triumph in your hearts. As a mother, I desire and pray for your unity with my Son and His works. I am here; you decide. Thank you.”

Mirjana said that Our Lady was very sad. She said that when Our Lady said, “I am offering to you the light of the Truth and the Holy Spirit,” Mirjana saw a particular light behind Our Lady.


Mirjana also said that Our Lady blessed all those present, their religious articles and She especially blessed all the priests present.

I am here; you decide

A Friend of Medjugorje

Our Lady gave Ivan an incredible new message in the first prayer group meeting of this year’s pilgrimage season two weeks ago on Friday, May 20, 2011. Our Lady said:


“…satan wants to destroy today’s families…do not permit access to satan…”


In the next Friday night message, Our Lady told us through Ivan:


May 27, 2011

“…live my messages that I am giving you so that I can give you new messages…”


When Our Lady first told us the message, “prayer and fasting can suspend the laws of nature,” it was a “new” message. Our Lady, afterwards, through the months and years that followed repeated this message with similar words. They were applicable, but not “new” words as when She first gave them.

“…satan wants to destroy today’s families…do not permit access to satan…” is a “new” message. It says something different, gives a new perspective on how satan wants to destroy today’s families.* Our Lady wants to give us “new messages” and in the apparition today to Mirjana Our Lady spoke a “new message” to us. Our Lady said:


“…As I call you to prayer for those who have not come to know the love of God, if you were to look into your hearts you would comprehend that I am speaking about many of you…”


A “new message”!


For years these writings have repeatedly said that Our Lady, on the day of non-believers, was speaking first to us Her followers, as nonbelievers. We have also spoken about this many times on our Radio WAVE programs. Many were skeptical at this pronouncement, even critical of it. They believed Our Lady was referring only to “other people,” not those in Her movement, when She gave Her second of the month messages. Some, even within the Medjugorje movement wrote to discredit and counter the writings from here, inferring that Our Lady was not addressing Her followers, but rather pagans, or other nonbelievers. Regardless of some who criticised, never could it be compromised what Our Lady was showing in Her second of the month messages—that it is we who Our Lady is first addressing and confronting the aspects of non-belief in us. One must always move forward with Our Lady’s messages despite resistance. When one is honest and sincere, one can see it is we who Our Lady first shows that we must change all the non-belief in us. We are all touched, believer and nonbeliever alike, by atheistic aspects the world has formed in us, even though we would count ourselves among the believers. Many Christians have eliminated the “Living God” from their lives to “live their god” as they want. The consequence from this is that they go the direction of the world, and the direction the world is “going” is towards destruction. If you stay the course with the world, you will be in the world’s car when it crashes into the stone wall of God’s will. His “Will” will prevail. All else will fall. This is why Our Lady has come. She has come for this triumph and it is why Our Lady said:


“…you decide…”


Our Lady wants us to transform ourselves. She strives to purify us. Our Lady wants us to have Her Son. She has said to be a reflection of Jesus. What does this mean? What are we to become? The following story told by Fr. Larry Richards, gives an example of what this means:


An American soldier fighting in WWII was captured by the Japanese and sent to a prisoner of war camp. At the same time, there was a Japanese man who was caught as a spy trying to help the Americans. He was sent to the same prison camp as the American, condemned as a traitor to his country, and placed into the same cell. As a traitor, the Japanese man was tortured badly, much worse than the American. Everyday the guards took him out to torture him, and then threw him back into the cell. The American would do the best he could to take care of him, bandaging his wounds, sharing his food, seeing to his needs, and comforting him in any way he could. After a particularly severe torture session, it was evident that the Japanese man was going to die. The American man thought to himself, “I’ve shared everything else with this man but I haven’t shared Jesus with him.” He bent down so as to be right next to the Japanese man and said, “I want you to know that you are dying and probably won’t last through the night, but you don’t have to be afraid if you just surrender your life to Jesus. He will give you everlasting life.” The dying man looked up into the face of the American and said, “If Jesus Christ is anything like you, I can’t wait to meet him.”

When Our Lady came here to this valley in Alabama the very first time, in 1988, She gave many messages. The very first message Our Lady gave was on November 20, 1988. She said:


“…May your work be offered as a prayer and may everything that you do bring you toward me. Let everything that you do and everybody that you meet be an encounter with God.”


Our Lady desires for you to have Her Son. When you change your whole self to become a reflection of Jesus, it is then that “everything that you do and everybody you meet becomes an encounter with God.” When you are accepted by one who knows not the Christ, the door opens for him to have an encounter with Jesus through his acceptance of you. You as a believer, you as a Christian, through your kindness and tenderness in giving love represent God to the nonbeliever, who as Our Lady said, are those who have not come to know the love of God. You are their encounter with God. Through your treatment of them, they will come to accept your reflection of Jesus, and that will lead them to accept Jesus, Himself, as their Savior. Our Lady is standing in front of you today, waiting for your answer to Her question: “…I am here; you decide…”

“If Jesus Christ is anything like you,
I can’t wait to meet


In the Love of Her Who Wishes
You to be a Reflection of Jesus,

Mirjana waiting for Our Lady June 2, 2011

Having just arrived at the Blue Cross this morning, June 2, 2011, Mirjana waits in silent prayer before Our Lady arrives. With the entrance of the month of June, we are rapidly approaching the 30th anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions in Medjugorje. It is too incredible to realize even a little bit that Our Lady has been appearing every single day for 30 years. Thirty-year-old adults walking the earth today have lived every single day of their lives in which the world was blessed by Our Lady’s presence. What is just as incredible is the message Our Lady recently said to visionary Ivan on Apparition Mountain this past Friday, May 27, 2011. Our Lady still has messages She wants to give us. Caritas’ founder had been out of town that day and did not have the opportunity to see the message until that evening. When he saw it, he exclaimed “This is amazing”. After 30 years of apparitions, Our Lady announces that She still has “new” messages to give.

May 27, 2011

“…live my messages that I am giving you so that I can give you new messages…”


Mirjana wiping a tear in anticipation of Our Lady June 2, 2011

Mirjana wipes tears from her eyes as she anticipates seeing Our Lady today, June 2, 2011. These few moments are always so intense for Mirjana, made more difficult because of being surrounded by thousands of people, the focus of everyone’s eyes. This is an intensely personal experience for Mirjana, one in which the temptation to be alone in the privacy of her own home must be felt very strongly. But Our Lady has called Mirjana, as well as the other five visionaries, to be Her servant, and there is great value for souls to see and experience these apparitions in the presence of the visionaries. It makes the experience real, something they are a part of, something they understand they will have for all their lives on earth.


Mirjana concentrating on Our Lady June 2, 2011

Mirjana concentrates as Our Lady speaks Her message to her. Our Lady was sad, today, according to Mirjana. Everything in Mirjana’s posture, facial expression, the intensity and tenseness expresses the grief of seeing Our Lady in this way.


Mirjana smiling at Our Lady June 2, 2011

The last moments with Our Lady brings a smile of joy, and a heart-stopping look of wonder as Mirjana watches Our Lady ascend back to Heaven. A beautiful picture of what the faces that surrounded Jesus at His Ascension must have looked like as He left the earth. May this be a help to all of us in mediating upon the mystery we celebrate today on Ascension Thursday.

The crowds at the June 2, 2011 apparition of Our Lady to Mirjana at the Blue Cross

The street just below the Blue Cross is flooded with pilgrims leaving Mirjana’s apparition today, June 2, 2011. Yesterday, the scene on this street was quite different with torrential rain flooding the streets and unprepared pilgrims being pelted by heavy hail. During a recent phone conversation with Caritas’ founder, A Friend of Medjugorje, visionary Marija told him that the church bells are rung when storms blow in that brings hail. The bells warn the villagers of the impending storm and call them to pray for the protection of their crops. The bells themselves are a prayer that God will make the hail smaller so that their crops will not be damaged. Marija explained that she remembers from the time she was a little girl until even today so many times when they saw the hail grow smaller after the bells began to ring. It is a beautiful example of the “seamless” world between Heaven and earth when a people live for God and His ways. It is a heritage that Our Lady wants to recreate in our lives today through Her messages.

    This is a very Powerful message and I thank the Blessed Mother our Mother for all She does for us. I ask Her to pray for these United States of America. The devil has set his evil spirit on our county and people are with- drawing them selves from God. Holy Mother of God Pray for us. I consecrate myself to your Immaculate Heart.

  3. Maria del Carmen Gonzalez

    Dear Mother, thank you for your inmense love for all of us sinners, thank you for give hope to all of us. I keep of praying and I ask you to bless my country, and all the people who make possible for us to reach your messages

  4. Thank you loving Mother for your gifts, love, and caring. I pray that you will assist me in loving your BELOVED SON, JESUS, more and more.

  5. Mother thank you for this call to reflect Jesus your Son.Thank you for this web-site. Take me and my family to Medjugore that we may feel your nearness and walk where you walked. Help us to be always your devoted servants.

  6. We were being treated by being shown the site, with the white cross, where the June 26th, 1981 apparition took place when the thunder, lightning, and hail had reached us. For the next 2 hours or so, the lightning and rain were very intense. Constant lightning strikes around us were “so close” I was wondering if one was going to hit me in the head. Our group “step by step” walked down the mountain through the river and got totally soaked. Our Lady protected us.

  7. I do feel ashamed of my country after the referendum for the bill of divorce passed. We are in the hands of God. Please forgive us. Other couintries who have the law of divorce have nothing but children from different marriages. It is sad. This is not FAMILY. This is chaos and confusion for the new children not knowing the real value and love of real family life. Please Holy Mother help us to turn to God for his love and help.

  8. I thought I was a believer but looking deep into my heart, I can say I am the most confused nonbeliever there is….I am in such need of Our Lady and Her guidance…

  9. I wish that I can come to Medjugorje but it seems impossible, but through your messages and articles we can take part in this beautiful organization of faith and prayers. You are doing a great mission. When we read Our Lady’s messages we feel we are taking part in the gathering to which we wish to be in fact a part. I will try to live the messages as they are dictated by Our Mother Mary.I want to love her son Jesus as best as I could.May the world comes to love God before it’s to late. GOD BLESS

  10. Mo Maria how blessed to be living in the time that you grace our earth with your blessed presence and give us messages to bring us closer to your son and to God. Mama here I am deciding for God and your beloved son Jesus and you.Please take me in the interior of life and help me to be like Jesus.May I be a vessel to draw others to the light of Jesus May everyone who meets me encounters God & Jesus.Oh when can I kiss the earth in Medjugorje where your feet have walked.Mama I long to fly to Medjugorje!

  11. Thanks a lot. We are grateful for this apostolate of keeping us informed. May our Lady safe us through her pilgrimage here on earth. Amen Andrea

  12. Rose K Imperial

    Dear Friend of Medjugorje, thank you for you insight regarding on who are the “nonbelievers” that Mama Mary was referring to. Yes! i agree that in so many instances we have been “secularized” by “subliminal” messages daily in radio & tv, print & soc. media that before we , Christians , know it , weve become selective and liberal minded that God’s absolute truth ceases to be The LIGHT in the darkness. Ave Maria. Shalom.

  13. Stephanie Alban

    Dear Blessed Mother Mary: I have so much to think about. This is a very deep message to search our souls and be honest with God and ourselves.

Help my family and I drive safely to Caritas on June 25th and 26th for the anniversary.

  14. Dear Blessed Mother Mary: You are always there for us, praying for us and worrying for us. I know you love all of us so much and Mother Mary, I love you. I wish to help you in any way that I can to bring more souls to Jesus who loves us so much too. I hope that I can be of help and will pray more and offer up more sacrifices and say the Chaplet of Divine Mercy to ask God to forgive me, my family members, and the whole world for all of our sins.

  21. I feel so touched with the message that was given to us by Our Lady .ie feel sad that so many times I want to be in the presence of the Lord but I don’t get the time. Its like am too busy for Him. My heart bleeds and got so sad. So many times I feel am a believer but am wondering if really I am or am I being a true Christian. Am again so happy that I’m able to realize something in my life

  22. Thanks be to God; Praised be to Jesus. Blessed Mother really is an amazing gift from God. Amen to the message; amen to the sharing that has been post on the Mej.com for us. Sincerely ask our friends from Caritas of Birmingham pray for us who have been dwelling on this island with a high population yet only less than 3% of Catholic and Christian to strive to live our Blessed Mother’s message, just as the Japaness prisoner strived until the very last end; his faith that I desire to have. thank you

  23. Dear Holy Mother, I’m so sorry that so many Maltese people have voted ‘yes’ to the introduction of divorce – I’m offering my tears as a prayer for my own faults and for those who have given access to satan to destroy Maltese families. Please intercede for us…I humbly beg you, through the intercession of the Holy Souls in purgatory, the angels and the saints. Help me, renounce satan and his pompous works. Amen. Luc.

  24. I liked the pictures we still need to pray a lot for nonbelievers. Our Mother Queen of Peace is very sad. We need to be in prayer everyday for satan not to destroy our families. I liked the articles I read.
