Our Lady appeared to Medjugorje visionary Marija last night, July 4, 2012 around 10 PM, during the Consecration of the Nation which took place in the Field of Apparitions at Caritas. The apparition lasted 5 minutes. Afterwards Marija said:
“During the moment of the apparition when Our Lady came, Our Lady watched all of us. In the beginning I recommended all of us, all our intentions, all we have in our hearts, all sick people. Our Lady smiled and She extended Her hands and began to pray over us. She prayed for a long time, all the time that She stayed with us. And afterwards, She blessed us with the Sign of the Cross, and She said, ‘Go in peace.’”
Marija said that Our Lady’s apparition the next day would take place in the morning, July 5, at 10:40 AM Central Time USA in the Bedroom of Apparitions. This is different from the usual appariton time, which would normally be 11:40 AM Central Time. Our Lady chose to move the time for the July 5 apparition upwards one hour to appear today at 10:40 AM.
When Marija says that “Our Lady watched all of us,” Marija has explained that when this happens, Our Lady looks about the crowd like a Mother who is making sure all Her children are there. The visionaries have said that this gesture of Our Lady is very endearing.
The statue of Our Lady in the Field of Apparitions, taken the night of July 4. Here Our Lady is illuminated by the candles surrounding Her. In these days of darkness in our nation, the light shining in the darkness is the Holy Virgin Mary, the Queen of Peace, Who has come to us in these days, calling us to Her feet, as She, the Mother, ‘watches all of us.’ She sees every difficulty we face, every trial we endure. She looks for our faces in the sea of mankind, to make us understand that that She sees us, and is here for us. For whatever our nation may have to endure in it’s healing, let us always look to Her, run to Her feet, and allow Her to spread Her arms over us to protect us from every evil. Let it be so.
