Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving Day

Marija returned to Caritas for a very short visit in November 2005. This was something that wasn’t planned and happened at the last minute. Thanksgiving Day is a feast day celebrated in the Community, not only because of what that day is for our Nation, but because it marks the very first time Our Lady appeared and blessed the people in the Field. It was Our Lady who chose November 24, 1988, Thanksgiving Day, to be Her first apparition in the Field. In this year of 2005, Thanksgiving Day fell on the exact date of this apparition, 17 years ago.

The Community had much to reflect upon in this Rosary, and much to be thankful for, especially this day when Our Lady was with them to celebrate. The apparition took place at the normal time of 10:40 a.m. Marija said:

“Our Lady prayed over us, and She blessed us.”

Our Lady was strong in the wind today.
