On this March 18th apparition of Our Lady to Mirjana, Our Lady gave severe words that were difficult to hear. Despite the severity of the words, Mirjana insisted that the message was a message of love and consolation because, Mirjana explained:
â€œWe have nothing to fear if we have love. I invite all of you to live love.â€
The message Our Lady gave on Mirjana’s annual apparition follows:
Mirjana was distressed after the apparition. Mirjana said that Our Lady was not completely happy as She has been on many of her birthdays. Our Lady spoke to Mirjana about the secrets, though she could not comment on what they spoke about. But Mirjana expressed the real reason for her sorrow and distress.
â€œI cried because it is very difficult for me when She leaves. When I am with Her, everything is in its fullness. When She leaves, in that same moment, I am here on earth, and I continue without Her as if I were abandoned. But I know I am no abandoned. But She went, and She left me! This is really difficultâ€¦really difficult! When She leaves, it is so difficult that if this happened often, I don’t know how I would â€˜cope.’ This is the hidden martyrdom of the Medjugorje visionaries that they daily endure.â€
