Today, July 2, 2012 was a day dedicated to the individual conversion of the heart. After several days of sweltering heat, Our Lady granted a slight reprieve, as a little rain helped to mitigate some of the heat. Medjugorje visionary Marija spoke to pilgrims today, and spoke about how the importance of love is in the Christian life, somewhat echoing what A Friend of Medjugorje spoke about yesterday, and what was broadcasted on Radio WAVE today. Marija also spoke a little on the message given to Mirjana this morning.
Yesterday, Our Lady told Marija, that today, the apparition would take place in the Bedroom of Apparitions, at 6:40 PM. Pilgrims had gathered in the Field and began praying the Rosary at 6 PM, in union with those gathered in the Bedroom. The Rosary was peaceful, with singing between the decades. Slightly before 6:40 PM, the pilgrims paused to offer the Consecration prayers to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, as dictated to Jelena, Medjugorje inner locutionist, along with the St. Louis de Montfort Consecration to Our Lady. Afterwards, Marija began praying the seven Our Father’s, seven Hail Mary’s, and seven Glory Be’s. Our Lady appeared around 6:43 PM and the apparition lasted a little over 3 and a half minutes. Throughout the apparition, several sobs could be heard out loud as those gathered poured out their hearts to Our Lady. Following is Marija’s description of the apparition in the Bedroom, on July 2, 2012:
“In the moment of the apparition when Our Lady came, I recommended all of us, and all our intentions. Our Lady prayed over us, and She blessed us all. I asked also a blessing for all those who were in the Field, and Our Lady sent a blessing also for those there. I asked for tomorrow and where and She said, ‘Apparition is in the Field, 10 O’clock in the evening.’ So, apparition is for everybody, thank God.”
Our Lady also blessed the religious articles which were brought for blessing. Four priests were present for the apparition tonight, with one, newly ordained just over a month, and another celebrating 50 years of priesthood, with the other two in between.
Again, tomorrow night’s apparition will take place at 10:00 PM, Central Time USA, in the Field of Apparitions. All the public is invited to come and be present with Our Lady.

Medjugorje visioanry Marija, speaking today from the Tabernacle of Our Lady’s Messages at Caritas, Alabama. Each of the visionaries of Medjugorje have been chosen to understand or portray something of OurÂ Lady.Â A Friend of Medjugorje is convinced that Marija’s special gift is to show the love of OurÂ Lady.Â Marija spoke of love today, giving an illustration of a friend who often comes and brings homemade cakes to her home.Â Often, just after the gift is given, a special guest will arrive at Marija’s home, such as a bishop and the cake is then shared.Â Marija says that she doesn’t respond to her friend by saying, “Thank you for the cake,” but rather she says, “Thank you for your love” because love is what is behind the gift.Â It is more important to acknowledge someone’s love that is behind the gift, then the gift itself. Â All the pilgrims gathered today to hear Marija speak could feel the love behind Marija’s words–the love of Our Lady through one of Her chosen visionaries.
