Mirjana Receives Tenth Secret

Mirjana Receives Tenth Secret

On Christmas Eve, December 24, 1982, Mirjana was home with her family in Sarajevo. Our Lady appeared to Mirjana with the news that tomorrow would be her last apparition. Our Lady said:

“On Christmas I will appear to you for the last time.”

Mirjana’s apparition on Christmas Day lasted 45 minutes. Our Lady gave these words to Mirjana:

“Now you will have to turn to God in the faith like any other person. I will appear to you on the day of your birthday and when you will experience difficulties in life. Mirjana, I have chosen you; I have confided in you everything that is essential. I have also shown you many terrible things. You must now bear it all with courage. Think of Me and think of the tears I must shed for that. You must remain courageous. You have quickly grasped the messages. You must also understand now that I have to go away. Be courageous.”

Even though Our Lady had been preparing Mirjana for this for a month, it was still devastating to her. Our Lady promised that for the rest of her life, She would come to her in an apparition every March 18th, which is Mirjana’s birthday. However, it is not because it is Mirjana’s birthday that Our Lady chose this day for her annual apparition to her, but there is something significant to that date that will manifest in the future. It is connected to the secrets. In this last daily apparition of Mirjana, she received the tenth and last secret. Mirjana then reached out to receive something Our Lady held in Her hand. Mirjana said it was something like a rolled up scroll. Our Lady explained to Mirjana that all ten secrets were written on it and when the time comes for the secrets to be released, Mirjana should show the scroll to the priest of her choice who will announce each secret. Mirjana said the material of the scroll is something like parchment and is beige in color. She said:
all ten secrets [were] written in a simple and elegant cursive handwriting. There were no decoration or illustrations on the parchment; each secret was described in simple, clear words, similar to how Our Lady originally explained them to me. The secrets were not numbered, but they appeared in order, one after another, with the first secret at the top and the tenth at the bottom and included the dates of the future events.”
