Our Lady told Ivanka on May 7, 1985:
“…No one in the world has had the grace which you, your brothers, and sisters have received…” (referring to the six visionaries)
It is not our words, but Our Lady’s words, which place the visionaries in this position. Her stating that “no one in the world” (6.5 billion people) shows that the place they hold is graced to such a degree that it is unparallel since the death of the last apostles. It is they who have walked with the Mother of Jesus, the Queen of Heaven, for twenty-five years.
Rain and cold wind greeted those who were among the earliest to arrive for visionary Mirjana Soldo’s second of the month apparition. Though the rain stopped shortly before 7:00 a.m., the wind increased and the temperature began dropping to the low 40’s. For the first time this season, snow could be seen on top of the distant mountains.
Despite the cold weather, pilgrims gathered and continued to gather all throughout the morning, reaching to numbers well above 8,000. The cold didn’t dampen the desire for these thousands to be with Our Lady. Standing and sitting for 2-3 hours, they considered the few minutes they would share with Mirjana, in being in the presence of Our Lady, worth the sacrifice.
Mirjana arrived around 8:45 a.m. and joined in praying the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary with the pilgrims. At 9:07, Mirjana went into ecstasy and remained with Our Lady for approx. 3 ½ minutes. Despite standing in the cold for hours, the crowds were resolute in staying until they heard the message of Our Lady translated into their own language.
The following is Our Lady’s message to Mirjana on November 2, 2006:
On March 18, 1996, Mirjana received a title directly from Our Lady which should give her greater respect and attention. She was referred to by Our Lady as “my servant.” In the past, Our Lady has never used a title such as this in any public message given to any one of the visionaries, nor has it been Her custom to patronize them with useless words or exaggerations. What Our Lady said, She meant. Our Lady is known as a servant, so much so that She obtained and now holds Her position in Heaven and upon the earth through Her earthly life of obedience and service… Our Lady said something profound regarding Mirjana’s heart by calling her “servant.” Only a pharisaical mind would deny Our Lady’s words which made a clear statement, a point that the “Mother Servant” while on earth, and now the Queen of Heaven, purposely gave with intent to Mirjana. Our Lady wants us to listen to the visionaries. She wants their voices increased. Their mission carries more importance than the kings of the earth. The words they deliver, Our Lady has said, come directly from God.
Afterwards, in conclusion, Our Lady said for us not to forget our shepherds in our prayers.
