What Happened on August 20, 2003: Caritas Silver Jubilee

Wednesday, August 20, 2003
Apparition in the Bedroom


A special gathering had been planned for the following day in which friends and benefactors of Caritas’ mission were invited for Marija’s last apparition at Caritas, which took place on Thursday, August 21, 2003. Marija and Paolo would be going out of town for a few days while their children would be staying at Caritas. On Monday, we would all meet and they would all return back to Italy. We would drive the boys to meet Marija and Paolo before taking them all to the airport to wish them a final goodbye.

On Wednesday, August 20, there were people already arriving for the event of tomorrow night. The apparition was in the Bedroom the evening of August 20. This was the last private apparition with the community at Caritas, though our founder and his family would be with Marija on Monday, August 25th, before Marija and her family would leave to go home. After the apparition ended, Marija said:

Our Lady prayed over us and She blessed us all. And I recommend all of our intentions.

The petals from the apparitions at Dune Haven in Florida still lie on the Bed as a remembrance of those special moments with Our Lady that were still so fresh in all our hearts. This was the last apparition in the Bedroom for this visit of Marija’s. The apparition tomorrow would be in the Field, and Marija would be leaving the day after that. Marija is just a moment away from seeing Our Lady and many eyes are upon her in the room to catch the first movement of Marija’s head tilting upward, seeing her eyes focus and her lips begin to move, indicating that Our Lady has arrived.

Though this was the last apparition with all the community in the Bedroom for this visit of 2003, Our Lady still had a few surprises before ending Her time at Caritas with the community in the following days.
