Assumption of Our Lady
The Community of Caritas archives continues:
A transcript from the Caritas archives continues with a conversation between the founder and Marija in the presence of the Community and Marija's family:
Founder: “So were they baby angels or grown-up angels?”
Marija: “Baby. All baby angels…all different.”
Marija’s little boy Francesco wants to know if St. Francis had come too because St. Francis is his namesake. We all laughed with Marija when she translated this to us.
Founder: “This is beautiful, you have to give us more details. Were they all beside Her and in front of Her?”
Marija: “All back.”

Founder: “What were they looking at? Every angel always looks at Our Lady.” He said this because Marija had told him on several other occasions when they discussed the angels in Our Lady’s apparitions that they only look at Our Lady.
Marija: “No. At us.” Marija then said, “Yes, the angels look at Our Lady but this time they look at us.”
Founder: He was shocked at this and repeated, “They were looking at us?”
Founder: Still stunned at this because Marija always told him they never take their eyes off Our Lady, he asked again: “They weren’t looking around the room or just looking around in general, they were looking directly at us?”
Everyone was in such a happy and excited mood that different community members were throwing out questions in joy, but filled with the wonder of knowing Our Lady had appeared with hundreds of angels this day and wondering what they looked like and what they were doing.
The founder's wife Annette then joined in the questions:
Marija: “Yes, long.”
Annette: “You could not see their feet?”
Marija: “No, it’s like…roman tunics.”
Annette: “The colors were like many colors like us or…what?”
Marija starts to describe, “Blue, white…”
Founder: “There were four or five colors?” He and his wife began asking more specifics of the colors, suggesting pink and yellow?
Annette: “Did you see Red?” Everyone laughed because Annette’s favorite color is red. “That’s what I’m asking, were they like baby colors or bright colors like what we are wearing?”
Marija tried to think of the word that best describes the color.
Annette: “Were they like baby colors, pastel?”
Marija: “Yes, like pastel.”
Our founder asked were the angels all tranquil, were any smiling?
Marija begins to explain about the angels. She said they come like Our Lady. “When Our Lady sad, they are sad. When Our Lady tranquil, angels are tranquil. When Our Lady is happy, the angels are so happy, more happy for Our Lady.”

In a later conversation with the founder a few days later walking in the Field of Apparition at Caritas, Marija explained in more detail the actual number of the angels. When the founder asked Marija, "How many angels?", Marija gestured with her hand to the flowers in the Field, and said, "As many as there are flowers in this field..." - literally tens of thousands, if not more. This apparition should be a consolation for all, as it is a beautiful revelation that Heaven has no short supply of angels to assist us in our daily walk towards holiness.
