Overview of the 10 Secrets

Overview of the 10 Secrets

 

The Blessed Virgin Mary has told the visionaries of Medjugorje that She would impart to them Ten Secrets. Very little is known about these secrets, though we do know that some of them have to do with chastisements for the world. We also know that the third secret will be a visible, lasting sign that will miraculously be placed somewhere on Apparition Hill. It will be permanent, indestructible, and beautiful. Also, both Mirjana and Vicka have stated that part of the seventh secret no longer exists because of the prayers and fasting of the people responding to Our Lady’s call.

The six Medjugorje visionaries in the beginning day of the apparitions

The six Medjugorje visionaries in the beginning day of the apparitions. Our Lady has entrusted secrets to them that will, once revealed, bring about sweeping conversions throughout the world. Three of the visionaries have all Ten Secrets, while the other three have nine. From left to right, as of June 25, 2009 – Ivan has 9 secrets; Marija has 9 secrets; Ivanka has 10 secrets; Mirjana has 10 secrets; Jakov has 10 secrets; and Vicka has 9 secrets.

Three of the visionaries, Mirjana, Ivanka, and Jakov, have all ten secrets and no longer see Our Lady on a daily basis. Mirjana received the 10th secret in 1982, Ivanka in 1985, and Jakov in 1998. The other three visionaries, Ivan, Marija and Vicka, each have 9 secrets and still see Our Lady on a daily basis, as of June 1, 2009.

Mirjana was the first visionary to receive all ten secrets. Our Lady has given her the responsibility of revealing the secrets. Mirjana knows the day and date of each of the secrets. Our Lady told Mirjana to choose a priest to reveal the secrets to the world. Mirjana chose Father Petar Ljubicic. Ten days before the first secret is to be revealed, Father Petar will be given a parchment containing the Ten Secrets. When Father Petar receives the parchment, he will only be able to read the first secret. During the ten days, Father Petar, along with Mirjana, is to spend the first seven days in fasting and prayer. Three days before the event takes place, he is to announce it to the world. At the proper time, he will be able to see and read the second secret, and then the third, etc., according to the schedule of Heaven. Mirjana said that Father Petar doesn’t have the right to choose whether to say or not to say them. He accepted this mission and he has to fulfill that according to God’s Will.

Mirjana has relayed the following:

“Before the visible sign is given to mankind, there will be three warnings to the world. The warnings will be in the form of events on earth. Mirjana will be a witness to them. Ten days before one of the admonitions, Mirjana will notify a priest of her choice. As stated earlier, Fr. Petar was the priest she chose. The witness of Mirjana will be a confirmation of the apparitions and a stimulus for the conversion of the world.

“After the admonitions, the visible sign will appear on the site of the apparitions in Medjugorje for all the people to see. The sign will be given as a testimony, confirming the apparitions and in order to call people back to faith.

“The ninth and tenth secrets are serious. They concern chastisement for the sins of the world. Punishment is inevitable, for we cannot expect the whole world to be converted. The punishment can be diminished by prayer and penance, but it cannot be eliminated. Mirjana says that one of the evils that threatened the world, the one contained in the seventh secret, has been averted thanks to prayer and fasting. That is why the Blessed Virgin continues to encourage prayer and fasting:

‘You have forgotten that through prayer and fasting you can avert wars and suspend the laws of nature.’

“After the first admonition, the others will follow in a rather short time. Thus, people will have some time for conversion.

“That interval will be a period of grace and conversion. After the visible sign appears, those who are still alive will have little time for conversion. For that reason, the Blessed Virgin invites us to urgent conversion and reconciliation. The invitation to prayer and penance is meant to avert evil and war, but most of all to save souls.

“According to Mirjana, the events predicted by the Blessed Virgin are near. By virtue of this experience, Mirjana proclaims to the world: ‘Convert as quickly as possible. Open your hearts to God.’

“In addition to this basic message, Mirjana related an apparition she had in 1982 which we believe sheds some light on some aspects of Church history. She spoke of an apparition in which satan appeared to her. satan asked Mirjana to renounce the Madonna and follow him. That way she could be happy in love and in life. He said that following the Virgin, on the contrary, would only lead to suffering. Mirjana rejected him, and immediately the Virgin gave her the following message, in substance:

‘Excuse me for this, but you must realize that satan exists. One day he appeared before the throne of God and asked permission to submit the Church to a period of trial. God gave him permission to try the Church for one century. This century is under the power of the devil, but when the secrets confided to you come to pass, his power will be destroyed. Even now he is beginning to lose his power and has become aggressive. He is destroying marriages, creating division among priests and is responsible for obsessions and murder. You must protect yourselves against these things through fasting and prayer, especially community prayer. Carry blessed objects with you. Put them in your house, and restore the use of holy water.’” 1

Even though Our Lady doesn’t speak a lot about the secrets, they are an important part of Our Lady’s plans for the salvation of mankind. For those who are responding to Our Lady’s call, the secrets should not create fear in their hearts. Any good father disciplines his children. The secrets are God’s way of disciplining His wayward children back into His loving embrace. The secrets will be fearful and considered chastisements for those of His children who have turned away from Him, who are living godless lives. But Our Lady calls all of us to conversion, not to wait until the secrets are realized. For many, it will then be too late. Act now and embrace Our Lady’s messages. Accept and embrace God’s love and mercy during this special time of grace with Our Lady.

    I am so afraid for the world and chastisement. The most important thing we as a whole can do is turn away from our evil ways. PRAY PRAY PRAY
    Return to confession and fasting.

  2. Things are so clear now. Many things mentioned here are happening. I really pray for all those People who are passing through hardship to forgive and forget. I also pray for those who have lost the path due to bad experiences to be shown the path once again and to follow Him. I really wish for God to assist me in bringing people to Him and to help me stay away from the wrong.

  3. Please ask for grace for the those who have no faith and place all their in the world which only seems to bring heartache and war. Pray for us who have to endure our failures and shortcomings. Pray we come more involved! !

  4. I have been searching for the truth now that God woke me up to see we have been lied to about our God. God has always been in my life but the feeling of being drawn closer to him. Praying resulted in him revealing many things to me and it feels like he is guiding me then I found this site. Amazing to be blessed with his love. God bless us all. Looking forward to learning all of his teachings.

    I am glad to hear and read both messages. Thank you ever so much for your time and attention to important matters.

  6. We went to Medjugorje about 20 years ago and I received a golden rosary, we gathered in front of Majiana’s house and she was taking questions, there was probably about 100 people there. I asked her a question which she answered but by the time the interpreter some one in the crowd fainted and stopped her from finishing, my question was is there anything we can do at home to protect us from the some of the secrets she stated talking and said “If you have a” that’s when the man fainted an stoped her mid sentence and I have been contemplating it ever since. This June 2021it will have been 40 years she has been with us and I don’t know about you but 40 years is a very prominent period of time in the bible, I personally feel this will be the beginning of the events.

  7. My Lord & my God – this is frightening to believers – non believers will pay little heed as always. Of course after the first Secret their minds will be changed. We must all turn back to the love of God – this world is undertaking a terrible pandemic- the peoples of many countries are protesting daily – things just had to change – too many have lost their way as our Mother Mary has pointed out –  it’s such a pity that change has to be brought about in this way – whatever will be will be – in this case our future will be there for ALL to see  Amen

  9. I am reading all I can and want to be ready! I’ve missed so much when I was away from the Church. My love is growing for Jesus. Help me Mother draw closer.
