Reports of other apparitions taking place in Hercegovina were being circulated. Some young people in the parish of Izbicno reported seeing Our Lady. The pastor of this parish came to Medjugorje and asked the Medjugorje visionaries to question Our Lady concerning all the signs in Hercegovina and Our Lady appearing in so many places. Our Lady responded:
Curious of these other visionaries, the Medjugorje visionaries asked Our Lady if they should go meet these visionaries of Izbicno. Our Lady told them no, it wasn’t Her wish. But their curiosity prevailed and they ignored Our Lady’s request. Our Lady then said to them, after they saw the seers from Izbicno:
Our Lady did not wish for the two sets of visionaries to come together because they had two separate missions that were meant to stay separate. The seers of Izbicno were there to help awaken the faith of believers of their region. But the Medjugorje visionaries were entrusted with a plan for the whole of mankind.
