A Friend of Medjugorje arrived in Medjugorje on July 4, 1986. While in Medjugorje that evening he was speaking to Fr. Ken Roberts, with whom he was good friends. Fr. Ken and about 20 other priests would be going into the apparition room in Medjugorje. A Friend of Medjugorje was standing in the crowd of about 400 or 500 people packed around the rectory at St. James Church when a woman on the top of the steps of the rectory motioned the priests to come up the steps. After they entered, the woman looked directly at a Friend of Medjugorje and signaled him to come up the steps. He joined the priests in the apparition room. Fr. Slavko was also present with three or four lay people. Shocked, a Friend of Medjugorje realized the gift that had been given to him, being present in an apparition. A Friend of Medjugorje leaned over to Fr. Ken Roberts and asked him, â€œWould you consecrate me to Our Lady?â€ He was again shocked when Fr. Ken Roberts boldly stopped the whole Rosary and asked all of the priests present to lay hands on him. He was so deeply moved that he could no longer hear what was being said. As the consecration prayer finished, it was apparition time and two of the six visionaries, Marija and Jakov, began their apparition prayer and suddenly Our Lady was in their midst. When a Friend of Medjugorje came out of the apparition room, he wept profusely. He did not know what had happened to him, but he knew that something very mystical was taking place in Medjugorje and that he would have to return to discover what it was that Our Lady was doing here.
