“...In My coming to you... the greatness of God is reflected...”
Mirjana greets pilgrims as she enters the building before the apparition this morning, August 2, 2008. Our Lady said today, “…In my coming to you, here among you, the greatness of God is reflected…”, but for millions they look to the faces of the visionaries to see the physical reality of that reflection, and it is a great joy to have the opportunity to see or touch the hand of one who has encountered Heavcn.
The preparation in prayer for Mirjana’s August 2, 2008, message began at 12:00 midnight in Medjugorje as pilgrims literally camped outside the gate of the building where Our Lady would appear to Mirjana today.
At about 4:45 a.m. this morning in Medjugorje, after a loud shout, thousands of pilgrims rushed full speed ahead into the building where Our Lady would be appearing this morning. Most of the crowd, which numbered at least 30,000 pilgrims, stood for four hours to be in the presence of Our Lady and in anticipation of Her words to us because of the seriousness of Her messages in these days to Mirjana.
Our Lady appeared to Mirjana around 9:00 a.m. and Our Lady stayed with us approximately 4 -5 minutes.
During the apparition, Mirjana’s head nodded and shook several times during her conversation with Our Lady.
The crowd moving to go to the apparition and leave after the apparition was at a literal standstill, as there were so many longing to be close to Our Lady.
The following is Our Lady's message to Mirjana:
“Dear children; In my coming to you, here among you, the greatness of God is reflected and the way with God to eternal joy is opening. Do not feel weak, alone or abandoned. Along with faith, prayer and love climb to the hill of salvation. May the Mass, the most exalted and most powerful act of your prayer, be the center of your spiritual life. Believe and love, my children. Those whom my Son chose and called will help you in this as well. To you and to them especially, I give my motherly blessing. Thank you.”
Our Lady blessed all those present and all the religious articles brought for blessing.
Our Lady gives hope in Her words today even while the world rushes towards devastation. Join A Friend of Medjugorje in tonight’s Radio WAVE broadcast as he looks deeper into the threats facing our world’s future and brings greater clarity as to why God sent Our Lady for our time. You won’t want to miss it.
This picture was taken just moments before Our Lady came and stood in Her physical presence before the vast crowd who gathered today for Her apparition of August 2, 2008. Some of those who couldn’t fit into the building pressed themselves against the outside windows hoping to catch a glimpse of Mirjana in ecstasy.
Mirjana in ecstasy. We can only imagine, after reading Our Lady’s message today, what it would be like to see the Virgin Mary while She was speaking such words of encouragement to us. In the midst of our own trials, we so often allow ourselves to feel that God is not near. But Our Lady challenges us to believe and to have faith. “…Do not feel weak, alone or abandoned…” What better words can we receive from our Mother to show us that She is near?
