For the fifth anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions in Medjugorje, Marija and Ivan met with their prayer group at 11:30 p.m. on top of Mt. Krizevac and received a message in which Our Lady drew a biblical parallel to that which was taking place in Medjugorje. She said:
There were 30,000 to 50,000 people present for the apparition. Our Lady gave the Special Blessing for the third time. It was on Mt. Tabor that Jesus appeared in His transfigured body, accompanied by Moses and Elijah. Peter, James and John saw them just as the visionaries of Medjugorje were seeing Our Lady, who was also before them in a transfigured body.
