For the apparition today, Our Lady appeared in the Bedroom of Apparitions while the ever increasing numbers of pilgrims gathered in the Field. The Rosary began precisely at 6:00 P.M. , praying two mysteries of the Rosary, both in prayer and song. The crowd waited after apparition time for Marija to come and share what had happened in the apparition today. Marija arrived to a round of applause amongst the crowd. As she stood in front of Our Lady’s statue in the Field she said Our Lady had come and blessed everyone, prayed over everyone and blessed all their religious objects. Marija then said Our Lady had come with a surprise tonight. Our Lady told Marija, in answer to the question put to Her by Caritas’ founder, through Marija: What time and where will the apparition be tomorrow, Sunday, March 21, 2011? Our Lady said She would come at the same time, 6:40 P.M., and that She would appear in the Field. At that news, everyone clapped with great joy. After the apparition, Caritas’ founder questioned Marija about how Our Lady relayed that She would appear in the Field. What did She say specifically when She said that, he asked. Marija said that Our Lady used the word “Field” in relaying Her wishes for tomorrow’s apparition. When Caritas’ founder expressed his amazement at that, Marija answered him by saying “Our Lady knows the language we speak.”
Tracing back through the days, the pictures and captions that follow help to give the fullness of the experience of being with Our Lady during the apparitions at Caritas:
A crowd of several thousand gathered in the Field tonight for Our Lady’s apparition to Medjugorje visionary, Marija Lunetti. Though the apparition took place in the Bedroom of the home of Caritas’ founder, Our Lady blessed everyone who had also gathered in the Field to honor Her and to seek Her blessing.
Compared to the evening before, the moon rose much later tonight. The apparition had ended, Marija had come and shared tonight’s apparition, and then singing in honor of Our Lady began while the majority of the pilgrims began making their way back to the highway and their cars. More than thirty minutes of singing went by when we began to see the faint, but growing illumination of the mountain forming the backdrop of the scene surrounding the Field. Finally, the tip of the moon could be seen rising above the outline of the mountain, with a light so bright, we could have been just as easily watching the sun rise.
The 5:00 A.M. prayer became the perfect preparation for Holy Mass, which was held at a local church at 6:30 A.M. in the morning. The almost full moon that hung over the Field this early morning, gave the illusion of the Eucharist—Jesus who became Bread to feed us, through first being born of the Virgin. In the empty Field, the Eucharistic Moon and Our Lady’s statue were the two most prominent images that could be seen which gave the morning’s meditation for those who climbed out of their beds to make the early sacrifice. Arriving at St. Mark’s Church so early in the morning, seeing the full parking lot, and then a nearly packed church is one of the beautiful memories of that pilgrims remember when they come to Caritas to be with Our Lady in Her apparitions.
Marija is all smiles as she enters the newly constructed print shop in Our Lady’s Tabernacle. Marija is very comfortable mixing in with the pilgrims when she is at Caritas, which always surprises and delights those who are lucky enough to come upon her while walking through the areas of the mission.
A Friend of Medjugorje and Medjugorje visionary Marija joined together in front of the Tabernacle of Our Lady’s Messages to welcome the several thousand pilgrims who came to gather with Our Lady for these special five days. This friendship between the two of them began 26 years ago, and the crowd enjoyed their friendly bantering back and forth with each other while they shared memories from their long friendship in the midst of sharing Our Lady’s messages and real life examples of the application of these messages into daily life.
We encourage you again, if you can make the plans to come to Caritas, don’t hesitate to act on a spontaneous decision to come. You won’t regret it!
