Today is the 25th of the month, the day Our Lady of Medjugorje gives a message for the world through Marija. Also, today is the feast of Saint James. The Croatian Mass began with a procession of the statue of Saint James from the church and the Mass took place at the local park outside. The weather was sunny, cool and breezy. A very beautiful day.
The apparition for the 25th message took place at Marija’s Chapel of the Two Hearts. The apparition was preceded by two rosaries, with singing between the decades. Our Lady came about 6:42 pm and the apparition lasted about 5 minutes. Immediately after the apparition, Marija went by herself into the adjoining room to write down the message. A song to Our Lady was sung, and another decade of the rosary prayed while waiting for Marija to come out.
Marija began by reading the message in Croatian. Her voice was peaceful as she spoke slowly the words given by Our Lady just moments before. She then gave a rough translation in Italian. Afterwards Marija left with the translators to begin the process of translating Our Lady’s message for all the languages present.
