Apparition and Message Given through Mirjana on the Day for Nonbelievers
The following is the message Our Lady gave through Mirjana during her apparition:
Observing the culture of today by one who lived a couple of centuries ago, who was able to peer into the future to our time, would he have seen what Our Lady said in today’s message – people ceaselessly wandering and how lost man would become in our time? Observe that man, who graffles to make a living in a false way of profiting off nonexistent production. We are a world society that is top heavy, making money on paper rather than on what we produce. The pushing of paper, financing, investments, insurances, speculation, acquiring credits swapped into cash through supposed global warming, etc., etc., etc. Materialism of paper, a false illusion that seems real and actually does temporarily drive the economy, yet is more of a spirit, an evil spirit of consumerism, consumerism that is not substance but is a mentality of today’s heart which drives man to wanton wants, a system that is under judgment to crumble. The shopping, the malls, more stores than one can count in every locale. The useless wanderer, holding and using cell phones, in ceaseless use of them, even when one is driving; one’s thoughts are lost in the cerebral world, with little or no time given to God in hours devoted to the world’s ways and, by comparison, only a minute with God per day.
Many will not understand the words above in the depth of its meaning because of their ceaseless wandering inside gadgets of electronics that oppresses the thinking, enslaving their thinking, never allowing the light of the way God thinks to enter in their hearts. God is blocked out and, at minimum, mitigated by man who chooses not to talk, or communicate directly with his neighbor, but rather through a third party system, emails, texting, etc. One must pray, observe today’s society from the distance of another time, putting oneself in the shoes of someone who lived 200 years ago to grasp what is written here. Our Lady is close to us, yet from a distance what She sees in today’s man is a ceaseless wandering in darkness, his attention captivated by a false light which tantalizes him by its false glitter.

“…your heart is filled with false glitters and false idols…”
Our Lady wants man to know himself, to “recognize and admit everything that does not permit you to get to know the Heavenly Father.”
Worst yet, man does not know how lost he is in this electronic world and in consumerism and materialism. He doesn’t contemplate it, thinking nothing of it and its errors. He would scoff at what is written here. Yet, it is true. It is one of the major gods of today that far outrivals the Roman gods of the past. Electronic gadgets are worshiped. They are adored. They are prayed to in a spiritual communion, through constant communication throughout the day and because they are used in such a way, they become instruments of the devil. Man is controlled by electronics. Man is suppose to be in control of electronics. In our mission of Caritas, we are very advanced, yet we never let technologies control us, our time, our behavior, rather we control them, their time on us, and do not let them dictate our behavior. If one does not have wisdom, all the above is folly, will not be understood, even be absurd. But with an open heart of prayer, one can begin to recognize all the above and realize the “ceaseless wandering” and begin to see “how lost you are.” These mentioned physical realities are the manifestation of what is in the heart. So we can say our hearts ceaselessly wander and do not know how lost we are.
You cannot escape ceaseless wandering and being lost in the desert of today’s world. Conveniences and modernism bring to us a comfort that civilized nations and even those considered poor in these nations have at hand what kings did not have up to a couple of hundred years ago. Only by an honest check of your heart will you recognize we have built a whole new world without God, as if we are our own creators.
“…the West has made civilization progress, but without God, as if they were their own creators."
Our Lady speaks clearly of the “new world” we have built and what we are inheriting.

“…You are creating a new world without God…”
We are a people of God, yet who have lost God and the true understanding of Who He is and the way He thinks, and therefore, what He thinks Our Lady spoke of today. Our Lady told us in 2011:
August 2, 2011
"… become a new people with my Son; a people who know that if they have lost God, they have lost themselves…"
With the loss of God, things have gone our way for so long that we no longer understand the value of the Cross. We felt secure in man and his accomplishments. Now, however, many are uneasy, unsettled with this path we have been going down. Our character, our spiritual character, is not developed and matured when everything goes our way. Rather the opposite, when we carry the cross, which conversion brings, we then are purified and molded by trials which are necessary to grow in the process of conversion.
1 Peter 4:12-13
“Beloved, do not be surprised that a trial by fire is occurring among you, as if something strange were happening to you. But rejoice to the extent that you share in the sufferings of Christ so that when His glory is revealed you may also rejoice exultantly.”
When we reject our cross, complain about it, we reject what is good for us. When we become intimate with the Cross, through our trials, we gain an intimacy with God the Father.
