A Big Day for the Croatian People and the Tenth Anniversary

A Big Day for the Croatian People and the Tenth Anniversary

Both Croatia and Slovenia declared independence and dissolved its association with Yugoslavia on, of all days, June 25, 1991, the tenth anniversary of the apparitions in Medjugorje. This also marked the beginning of a war that would be among the most violent and horrific of all the Eastern Bloc Countries fighting for their independence completing the dissolution of Yugoslavia. But, on the day of their declared independence, there was great rejoicing in Croatia. As one of the Medjugorje villagers wrote:

Today was a big day for Croatia and all Croatian people because the Parliament of Croatia declared the independence of this Republic. The Croatian people were dreaming about this for hundreds of years…

The tenth anniversary message Our Lady gave to Marija:

“Dear children, today on this great day which you have given to me, I desire to bless all of you and to say: These days while I am with you are days of grace. I desire to teach you and to help you walk on the path of holiness. There are many people who do not desire to understand my messages and to accept with seriousness what I am saying. But you I therefore call and ask that by your lives and your daily living you witness my presence. If you pray, God will help you discover the true reason for my coming. Therefore, little children, pray and read the Sacred Scriptures so that through my coming you discover the message in Sacred Scripture for you. Thank you for responding to my call.”
