Caritas’ founder chose to not have the apparition until the evening so that everyone traveling would have the opportunity to be present for the apparition. It was a beautiful evening. There were people arriving all afternoon and evening. Those who flew or drove in for the apparitions joined in the prayer and singing in the Field which began around 5 PM. This led into the prayer of the Rosary in preparation for Our Lady’s apparition, which again would happen, as Our Lady said the day before, whenever we gathered together in prayer. The mysteries were prayed in English, Spanish, French, Italian and Croatian. Our Lady suddenly appeared to Marija in the Field just after 7 PM and the apparition lasted five and a half minutes. Following is Marija’s description of the apparition:
“During the moment of apparition when Our Lady came, I recommended all of us, all our intentions, all what we have in our heart. I thanked Our Lady for Her presence here for 28 years in the Field and Bedroom. Our Lady extended Her hands and prayed over us. She prayed a long time. Our Lady extended Her hands over us and She blessed us. But before She blessed us, She prayed over us a long time. And this is everything.”
Marija said that tonight Our Lady was happy and that when Our Lady prayed over us, She prayed with Her eyes opened, scanning the crowd. Marija said that tomorrow’s apparition for the 25th message would take place in the morning in the Bedroom of Apparitions.
