Marija and Mystical Experiences

Marija and Mystical Experiences


In the many times that Marija has been in America, there has been many opportunities for her to tell about the apparitions and her experiences with Our Lady. When she was asked where she had learned Italian so well, Marija answered, “In 1983, on my birthday, Our Lady gave me the gift of Italian as a birthday present during the apparition.” A priest asked her, “Did you know any Italian before?” Marija answered, “No.” He then asked, “How well do you know the Italian language? Marija then said, “When I left the apparition, I knew it as well as my native tongue and I could speak it fluently.”

The following is also a story Marija told:

“I was praying in my room one morning when suddenly I had a vision of a white flower of such beauty as I have never seen before. It then wilted and drooped as if dead. I felt a deep sadness, because this flower had such beauty. Suddenly I saw a large drop above the flower which then fell directly on the head of the drooping flower. It then gradually opened up, radiating its former beauty. The flower then disappeared. I thought about it but then finished praying.

Later, during an apparition on Apparition Mountain, I asked Our Lady about the vision. Our Lady told me:

“The flower was the image of man’s soul. It flowers and opens out in the grace of God. But when man sins, the soul withers and wilts. The drop is the symbol of God’s grace. The soul wilting in sin will blossom out with the grace through Confession and true repentance.”

“The Sacrament of Confession should be lived in the joy of an encounter with God.”

Another story was related to us by a friend of Marija. Before Marija was married, she went on pilgrimage to Fatima, Lourdes, etc., with some friends. They were traveling by car from Madrid, Spain, and as apparition time drew near, they looked for an appropriate place to receive Our Lady’s apparition. The road was very barren and bad and nowhere seemed quite right. The following is an account given by one of Marija’s friends who was traveling with her.

“As we drove from Madrid, it was difficult to find a location for the apparition. We saw a small tree and parked to prepare ourselves by prayer. We had no image of Mary with us other than a small one from Fatima. We were all laughing, because the area was like a desert. We laughed and said, ‘This is no place to receive Our Lady.’ Since we had no better one, we nestled the image in the branches and began to pray the Rosary earnestly to prepare for Our Lady. But, still, we could not keep from laughing because the situation was so funny. There were so many bugs! Then Our Lady appeared to Marija who told us that Our Lady appeared laughing too. Our Lady prayed for us and blessed us. For us, it was very special to know that Our Lady was laughing too.

    Thanks to you I am able to fight back. I have already sent my letter to Archbishop Coakley. Tomorrow I will be talking in my parish to as many people as possible. May God bless you and protect you. JRA

  3. Attempts in AZ to invoke Satan in our cities were countered and they had to step down. This waged battle is happening all over. Thank you for helping us see how to unite to defend Our Lady and show our love for Our Lord, her Son.

  4. Thanks Friend of Medjugorje for the news and formation to help Christians understand the times we live in and the call to action to help love to win in 2017.

  5. I shared this on Facebook, I wrote to Bishop Coakley, and also to my own bishop – begging him to go to Oklahoma to support his brother bishop, to defend Our Lord and Our Lady against this vicious attack, and I begged him to invite all of us to go with him! Call us out to pray, lead your people out into the streets and we will follow you! We stand behind you! We believe in you as a bishop! You have been given power and authority by Christ. “Be not afraid” to use it! Our Lady of Medjugorje said: My apostles, I need you to show everyone the truth of God, so that my heart, which suffered and today suffers so much pain, can win in love. Pray for the holiness of your shepherds, so that in the name of my Son they could work miracles, because holiness works miracles. (5/2/2015)

  6. Shocking! Thank you for bringing this to light. Praying, fasting, writing that this event is stopped someway, somehow.

    I heard our Call to Confrontation today and read recent news reports about the Paris attack and how there were disgusting torture and mutilation to the victims. I sent a request by mail to Archbishop Coakley. I was stationed in Pensacola with the Navy. The city council is disgusting to allow satan in. Just like the metallic band playing a song to satan before the Paris attack. I see there is a new satanic statue in the city of Detroit and a YouTube calling Detroit the fallen City. I hope that the secrets begin at the anniversary of Fatima as you suggested. I think the U S Gov should stop calling for the death of police officers. I love your articles and they give me more to pray for. I guess The Blessed Virgin Mary is correct about the war with satan. We need help. Over a 40 year period I was with the U S Navy and retired with 35+ years. Our jobs went away since the 60’s and our Government is getting, in my opinion, more evil. Thanks for your help.
