The apparition took place in the Bedroom of the Apparitions at 6:40 p.m. Several thousand pilgrims were out in the Field, where the Rosary was begun at 6:00 p.m. Both the Caritas Community, along with the extended Community members, were present in the apparition in the Bedroom. Before the apparition, two members of the community became engaged to be married. Marija was very involved in the preparations with a couple of other community members, including a surprise party that happened immediately after the apparition. The following is Marija’s description of Our Lady’s apparition:
“In the moment when Our Lady come, I recommended all our intentions and Our Lady prayed over us and She blessed us. I ask special blessing for this Rosary and for these people who make us work today (everyone laughs). I ask Our Lady to pray over all those in Field. Our Lady pray over us and also She pray over us in Aramaic. I don’t know for what reason She pray over us in Aramaic.”
A Friend of Medjugorje: How long did She pray in Aramaic?
“Long. And after Our Lady blessed us. I ask for special blessing over this Rosary and for this Scripture, to become sign for this new family. Our Lady was tranquil. Our Lady said of the apparition tomorrow:
“Same time, same place.”
