“The world is on the point of receiving great favors from God, dispensed through Our Lady…”
– Friend of Medjugorje
from Medjugorje, Mirjana, A Mystery is Revealed
Caritas, Alabama (6:31 AM) – The above picture was taken in the Field of Apparitions on March 18, 2021, at the moment of Our Lady’s apparition to Mirjana in Medjugorje. The Caritas pilgrims had prepared for this moment through the 5-day Caritas pilgrimage. The evening and early morning was rainy, but at the moment Our Lady appeared, the rising sun peaked out from the clouds and shone directly on the Valley. The next pilgrimage to Caritas of Birmingham takes place during this special March 18th anniversary, the week of March 14 – 18, 2022.
It was this Valley at Caritas in which a Friend of Medjugorje began to pray in 1977, asking for God to take this Valley as a place set apart for His desires.
With hands outstretched, praying from the mountain tops and also praying going up and down Hwy. 43 which runs through the Valley, a Friend of Medjugorje implored God to make a place, protected, where God’s Law and Word would be obeyed.
Little did a Friend of Medjugorje know, that eleven years later, God would send Our Lady, through Medjugorje visionary Marija, and would grace this Valley with Her heavenly Queenship, where on December 25, 1988, Our Lady gave Her title as, “Queen of Peace.”
We are today, living on the graces earned through a Friend of Medjugorje’s prayers and sacrifices throughout the mountains, said so many years ago, and maintaining that prayer and sacrifice that God may continue to make Caritas a permanent place of conversion, until Jesus comes back.
This coming March 18, 2022, is just two years after Our Lady stopped Her second of the month apparitions to Mirjana. [See more about the March 18, 2020, apparition here]
A Friend of Medjugorje has told us for years, that March 18 is a special day for something in the future.
Medjugorje visionary Mirjana has confirmed that March 18, is a special date for the future.
We treat every March 18, as if it is “the” March 18 in which something special will happen, though we do not know when exactly.
This year, venture out from your normal daily life and spend the week of March 14-18, 2022, with a Friend of Medjugorje and the Caritas Community.

Thank you for all you do. I don’t know why, I am so afraid what is going to happen on March 18th. Should I be worried? God bless you.
Can I visit on the 18th if I can not attend the entire week?
Cindy, a Friend of Medjugorje has always kept Caritas open to pilgrims wanting to pray. Our daily Rosary time is 10 AM Central Time USA and you are welcome to join us and spend the day in prayer. God bless!
