Fr. Slavko gives a Friend of Medjugorje the crucifix from his office. This crucifix hung in the apparition room in Medjugorje and had been blessed by Our Lady on hundreds of occasions as the visionaries gathered daily before it to pray. A Friend of Medjugorje brought the crucifix to Marija and asked her to pray over it asking Our Lady to make of it a great tool of conversion for the United States. Mairja went into a deep prayer while holding it and then bent to kiss it with great reverance. This crucifix was later hung in his home at Caritas in Alabama just before Marija’s arrival to visit. It would have great significance in the story Our Lady was writing concerning the question asked of Her on October 6, 1986, by a Friend of Medjugorje.
