Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! I am here, I am among you. I am looking at you, am smiling at you and I love you in the way that only a mother can. Through the Holy Spirit who comes through my purity, I see your hearts and I offer them to my Son. Already for a long time I have been asking of you to be my apostles, to pray for those who have not come to know God's love. I am asking for prayer said out of love, prayer which carries out works and sacrifices. Do not waste time thinking about whether you are worthy to be my apostles. The Heavenly Father will judge everyone; and you, love Him and listen to Him. I know that all of this confuses you, even my very stay among you, but accept it with joy and pray that you may comprehend that you are worthy to work for Heaven. My love is upon you. Pray that my love may win in all hearts, because that is the love which forgives, gives and never stops. Thank you." (February 2, 2015)

"I am here..."

I must admit that when I viewed the live stream of Mirjana's apparition on February 2, I felt Our Lady's presence. Our Lady's presence was reflected in the face of Mirjana. And the prayerfulness of the people in the room also showed to me that Our Lady was there. We may take her presence for granted, but it is a great gift that the Father has given to us.

"I am here..."

On "Tea with Rosie - Episode 113" Franjo Zubac shares an amazing moment in the early days of the apparitions. It is a moment when Our Lady really showed her presence to the people of the village and even to the police who were trying to stop the phenomenon. It was as if she was saying to them, "I am here!"

Franjo Zubac shares his witness about the first year of the Apparitions:

Hello everybody! I would like to share my experience from 33 years ago. It happened actually on February 2, 1982. Before I begin the testimony about my experience 33 years ago, I would like to tell you about the circumstances in the village at that time. As you know the apparitions began here on June 24, 1981, and at that time the apparitions began, and many people started to come. And later on the parish priest started to believe in what was going on, and he became a witness, and then, as you know, the strong Communist regime at that time didn't like what was taking place here. So they decided to knock it down, to extinguish whatever was happening here. That is why Fr. Jozo ended up in jail for 3 ½ years, and many of the people here were punished, whoever supported Medjugorje. At one time two boys were taken from Medjugorje for 3 months in jail, just for saying what they saw here.

Now about what happened on February 2, 1982.... My family had decided to go to Medjugorje every evening to attend the Mass. On that evening my father told me "Let's go." One of my cousins was with me, at our family home, and she decided to come with my father and me in the car. We lived 5 miles from Medjugorje, in Gradnici, which was the mother parish of Medjugorje. Making our way down to the village of Medjugorje, and entering the crossroads about 1 kilometer from Medjugorje I saw something very unusual.

It was dark, and a star started to spark. The star was at the center of the Cross on Cross Mountain. The star actually started to spark, and to light up the Cross. I noticed it, my father noticed it, my cousin noticed it. We slowed down the car, and we realized that there were 4 cars in front of us, and the fourth car was a police car. They had stopped in the middle of the road and were watching it.

The star sparked there, and then it started to move towards Apparition Hill. The size of the star was between the size of the moon and an ordinary star. It was big than a star. And that star started to move toward Apparition Hill. The star was over the fields but in the sky, and the star was moving. That really struck me. At that time I was a university student, technically minded. It was easy for me to realize it was not a rocket or something man made. It was a supernatural thing, moving up and down, like it was dancing as it moved down toward Apparition Hill.

When it reached the Apparition site, it was sparkling up above. Then a fire appeared on the Apparition site just a little bit above the ground. The fire was about the size of a big bush, but there was no bush burning. It was a huge fire, and like a fire it was oscillating a little bit above the ground. Then in one minute that fire turned into three fires of the same size. There were three fires there, and they were oscillating in the same way that the one fire had been. The star was still sparkling above. Then the three fires turned into one fire, and stood there above the ground. It would transform into three, then into one, then into three, then into one. It was amazing.

Then we noticed the cars ahead of us moved. We also went on our way and arrived at the church. AT that time there was not pavement in front of the church, and so we parked right in front of the church. My father was so excited as he got out of the car, and he noticed a priest standing in the bushes on the left side of church (where the confessionals are now). He had a camera and was trying to take a picture of Apparition Hill. My father was so excited and he said, "I am going to go ask the priest if he saw the fire up on Apparition Hill." I tried to tell my father, "Please don't do that, because for one word you could go to jail. There are policemen all around the church and everywhere in the village. People end up in jail. Please don't do that." But no one could stop my father.

Actually it was Fr. Darinko, the fellow priest of Fr. Jozo. Fr. Jozo was in jail. This priest saw something and he wanted to film it. But my father was running and shouting "Father, Father, did you see the star and the fire up on the hill? " Father turned around and shouted, "Go into the church and pray!!" My father was shocked by the reaction of the priest. I said, "You see, you shouldn't say anything." Then later I realized why Father Darinko shouted at him. He really saved him from the spies. If he had said, "Yes, I saw it," both of them could have ended up in jail. By pushing him into the church, both of them were saved. In church we prayed.

During the time I watched the star, I stood by my car and I watched the three fires going into one and back into three and I felt fear. I realized I had to change my life, I had to go to be more friendly with God. Now I read the Bible every day, and I noticed in a footnote at the bottom of a page that in the Bible fire represents the presence of God. Fire signifies the presence of God. And it is becoming clear to me that the three fires were the Trinity, three in one. Now where that fire occurred, that place is consecrated.

At that time no one could climb Apparition Hill, because the police were stationed at the foot of Apparition Hill and Cross Mountain. No one could go up those mountains. Since then everything has changed. Millions of people have climbed Apparition Hill and prayed the Rosary. So many millions of Rosaries have been said. So many people have prayed and changed their lives and had great experiences on Apparition Hill, and that is the place that Our Lady said God was going to put the permanent sign, revealing the third secret. Thank you very much for listening!

Thank you, Franjo, for that eye witness testimony of a beautiful manifestation of Our Lady's presence (in the sparkling star), and of the manifestation of the Holy Trinity (in the fire) as well. May we all decide, like you, to become more friendly with God!! The time is now!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
