Vicka, who had been bedridden with a severe back condition for several weeks, began seeing pilgrims again in January of 1999 even though she was not entirely back to health. She was tired looking and had lost weight. But, as soon as she was feeling better, she went on a pilgrimage to the Holy Lands and then on to Lourdes. She was present in Lourdes on the feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes, February 11, 1999. It is unique to these apparitions, that the visionaries have visited the same sites Our Lady had lived and/or visited in history to other visionaries, while at the same time having an apparition of Our Lady at these sites. Our Lady, physically returned to these specially dear places in Her apparitions to the Medjugorje visionaries.
