Our Lady’s Real Birthday

Our Lady’s Real Birthday

Our Lady began revealing to the visionaries and to Jelena and Marijana that Her real birthday is not September 8th which is when the Church traditionally celebrates it, but is actually August 5th. Our Lady also revealed that Her next birthday, August 5, 1984, would be Her 2,000th birthday. She made a special request of the parish of Medjugorje. Our Lady said:

“Throughout the centuries, I have given myself completely to you. Is it too much to give me three days? Do not work on those days. Take your rosaries and pray. Fasting has been forgotten during the last quarter of the century within the Catholic Church.”

She communicated to them that She would like everyone to fast the three days preceding Her birthday, August 5, 1984.
