Today Marija underwent surgery after test results showed that she could donate her kidney to her brother, Andrija. During the operation, with Rosary in her hand and while under anesthesia, Our Lady appeared over Marija while she lay on the operating table. Marija later said Our Lady stayed with her and smiled for what seemed to her about two hours. For the next month, except for Christmas Eve, Our Lady did not speak to Marija. She appeared to her each day at Mass during Communion. Suddenly, on January 15, 1989, Our Lady told Marija that the next day She would again give messages. There was great joy in everyone’s hearts.
