The Community began to gather at the home around 7:30 a.m. The founder had every Community member write out their petitions to Our Lady and place them on the bed for the last apparition of the July 1-5 events. The Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary were prayed beginning at 8:00 a.m. Only the Community of Caritas was present with Marija’s family, while others who heard of the apparition taking place, gathered in the Field. Marija began the 7, 7, 7, and Our Lady appeared just before 8:30 a.m. The apparition lasted 3 and a half minutes. The founder (a Friend of Medjugorje) had asked Marija to ask Our Lady if She had some sweet words to give him and the Community. Following is Marija’s words from the July 6, 2013 apparition:
“During the moment of the apparition I presented to Our Lady all our intentions and letters that we wrote. I said to Our Lady, I give to you all sufferings, all joys of this Community and I ask you to give a message for us. And Our Lady began to smile and She said,
“I give you my love, you give it to others.”
“She blessed us, prayed over us, and She left.”
This message of Our Lady was unexpected and the cause of great joy for our founder, even though he had asked, and the Caritas Community as well. The smile of Our Lady was deeply touching to them and will be remembered and pondered for months and years to come with wonder of Our Lady and Her great love.
