Is the Number 13 a Good Number?

Is the Number 13 a Good Number?

February 13, 2020 A.D.

Today is February 13th. For many in secular society the number ‘13’ has negative connotations and superstitions. Our Lady of Medjugorje said on June 23, 1982:

“…let the people be converted so long as it is possible. There are many sins, vexations, curse words, lies, and other bad things…”

This is a glimpse of our world. But, is the world’s superstitious view of the number 13 founded, or is it quite the opposite?

A Friend of Medjugorje revealed more about the number 13 and its role in world events throughout the centuries in the recent February Words of the Harvester publication to the Caritas Field Angels. Following is a brief excerpt:

“…Is the number 13 a good number or a bad number? It seems that 13 is a fingerprint of Our Lady. It shows up in significant events and moments when She is orchestrating events. But as Revelation 12:13 points out, the dragon pursues “the Woman,” and in so doing, he mimics Her battle plans by commandeering the number 13 for his own purposes, turning the number from good into evil, such as the evil connotation derived from Friday the 13th as an unlucky number. There is a tug-of-war over sinners between the Woman and the devil. The rebelling devil claims ‘13’ for bad while Our Lady claims ‘13’ through Her standing before the 3 Gods in One*. Again, verse 13 in Revelation chapter 12, the verse says everything.


“When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child.”

Only One created Being can penetrate the depth of the Trinity, Three Divine Persons. Only One. That One is the Virgin Mary. Think what it is like to be able to stand before God, Triune in One, to be the only One who has experienced being immersed in God out of billions and billions of angels and people. Mary, begotten by God, Daughter; Mary, conceived in Her womb by the Holy Spirit, Spouse; Mary, who gave birth to a Son, Jesus, after He grew within Her for nine months, Mother. This is why Her number is 13. In chapter 12 of Revelation, why is it verse 13 that describes the Woman, Our Lady, who gave birth to the Christ? Our Lady is the only One being who stands in a position before God. Our Lady, One, before Three—the Holy Trinity. This is why Our Lady’s number 1 and 3 is ‘13.’…”

  1. Hello Friend of Medjugorje, Amazing observations, you have been inspired by The Holy Spirit through Our Lady, and She appeared at Fatima, Portugal on the 13th Of May till the 13th of October 1917. And I realised the central bank, (Federal Reserve) the evil system was created on the 23 of December in 1913, talking about light and darkness. Thank you so so much for your amazing insights. May God bless you and all the staff, people involve with Caritas of Birmingham. I feel so blessed to have my Mother through your broadcasts.

    Dear Friend of Medjugorje. I just sent a request to make sure I begin to receive the Harvester materials, so this point is probably moot and written about in the above mentioned article. In Jewish tradition, the male child has a Bar mitzvah as a Jewish coming of age ritual when he turns 13. Also according to According to Rabbinic commentary on the Torah, God has 13 Attributes of Mercy. There are also 13 Principles of the Jewish faith. I’m looking forward to being able to read your entire article on this, as I’m waiting with Anticipation to have my recent change from yearly giving, to monthly giving, place me on your Field Angels list. May God Bless You and Keep You Well. Sincerely, Michael J Hebert Your Friend, Bear

  3. Dear Friend of Medjugorje, thank you for pointing out about the number 13. I had just been noticing that there are thirteen lunar months per year, plus one day. 28×13=364 plus 1 = 365. Our Lady is often associated with the moon. Do you think this is relevant?
