The Bedroom of Apparitions August 4, Mary's Eve

August 5th Text

What Are You Doing For Her Birthday?

Our Lady of Medjugorje revealed back in 1984 that August 5th was Her actual birthday. Years ago, a Friend of Medjugorje initiated the celebrating of August 4th as Mary’s Eve, with the 3 days preceding the August 5th feast, as days of fasting and prayer. On August 4th, the Caritas Community will be praying in the Field of Apparitions for Mary’s Eve with a special scene that a Friend of Medjugorje designed over 13 years ago, the first in the world dedicated to Our Lady’s birth.

Come to Caritas for 2 Days of Prayer

“My dear children…your Mother is happy, happy, happy to be with you…”
