says:"Praise be Jesus!" / Ivanka asked about her mother who had died two
months earlier. / "She is happy. She is with me. She is your angel in
Heaven". / The visionaries asked if Our Lady would return the next day. /
Our Lady responded with a nod of the head. / Mirjana asked if Our Lady
would give them a sign so that others would believe them. Also, Mirjana
noticed that her watch had changed time during the Apparition. / Our Lady
says: "Good-bye my angels. Go in the peace of God."

A crowd of nearly three thousand people were drawn to Apparition Hill on
this day. / Vicka sprinkles Holy water on Our Lady. She asks Our Lady to
stay and asks is she is indeed the Virgin Mary. Our Lady smiles as she
responses. / Ivanka then asked why Our Lady is here and what does she want
from the people. / Our Lady responded: "I have come because there are many
true believers here. / I wish to be with you to convert and to reconcile
the whole world." / Ivanka asked if her mother has any message for her. /
Our Lady responded: "Obey your grandmother and help her because she is
old." / Mirjana wanted to know about her grandfather who had recently
died. "He is well." / The visionaries requested a sign to prove that the
Apparition was really the Gospa. / "Blessed are those who have not seen
and who believe." / Mirjana asked: "Who are you?" "I am the Blessed Virgin
Mary." / Why are you appearing to us? We are no better than others. / "I
do not necessarily choose the best." / Will you come back? "Yes, to the
same place as yesterday." / While Marija goes down the mountain, she is
mysteriously pushed to the side of the trail by an unseen force. She sees
the Virgin again. Our Lady has a wooden cross behind her and is crying.
"Peace, Peace, Peace! Be reconciled! Only Peace. Make your peace with God
and among yourselves. For that, it is necessary to believe, to pray, to
fast, and to go to confession."

treating them like liars. / They asked Our Lady to leave a sign for the
people. / "My angels, do not be afraid of injustices. They have always
existed." / The visionaries asked: "How must we pray?" "Continue to recite
the Lord's Prayer, the Hail Mary, and the Glory Be seven times, but also
add the Creed. / Good-bye, my angels. Go in the peace of God." / Our Lady
said to Ivan: "Be in peace and take courage."

The visionaries want to know what the Gospa wishes. / "That people believe

"Blessed are they who believe without having seen." / They wanted to know
if She would return. "Yes, to the same place." / The visionaries ask if
She prefers prayer or singing. "Both, prayer and singing." / Vicka asked
what Our Lady wished from the crowd gathered on the hill. / According to
the visionaries, Our Lady responded with a smile and a loving glance. / At
this point, the Gospa disappeared. / The visionaries prayed, hoping she
would return because She had not said good-bye. / It was during the song,
"You Are All Beautiful", that She returned. / Three times Vicka asked,
"Dear Gospa (Croatian word for Our Lady), what do you expect of these
people?" / "That those who do not see believe as those who see." / Once
again the visionaries asked for a sign so that the people would not think
/ of them as liars. They only received a smile from Our Lady as She told
them good-bye and disappeared. / "Go in the peace of God."
Message: Jun 29, 1981
The visionaries wanted to know if the Gospa was happy to see so many
people present. / "More than happy." / They ask, "How long will You stay?"
/ "As long as you will want me to, my angels." / They questioned Our Lady
about Her expectations about those who came despite / the heat and the
brambles. / "There is only one God, one faith. Let the people believe
firmly and do / not fear anything." / "What do you expect of us?" the
visionaries inquired. / "That you have a solid faith and you maintain
confidence." / The visionaries wanted to know if they would be strong
enough to endure persecutions / because of their beliefs. / "You will be
able to, my angels. Do not fear. You will be able to endure everything. /
You must believe and have confidence in me." / At this point, Doctor
Darinka Glamuzina, working for the Government, requests / Vicka to ask a
question for her: "May I touch Our Lady?" / "There have always been
unbelievers who don't have faith, but she can / approach." / Vicka shows
Doctor Glamuzina where to extend her hand and Doctor Glamuzina / touches
the Gospa. / The parents of a handicapped child ask the visionaries to
intercede on behalf of / the child. The ask the Virgin to cure the child
so that people will believe them. / "Have them believe strongly in his
cure. Go in the peace of God." / The child was cured later that same
evening. / Between June 30, 1981 and December 31, 1981, the visionaries
were being / tracked down by the police. / They had to find a discreet
place to wait for the Virgin to appear.
Message: Jun 30, 1981
Two social workers took the visionaries on a ride so they would miss the /
Apparition on the hill. / The Apparition took place at Cerno, on the road
between Ljbuski and Medjugorje. / Mirjana asked Our Lady if She was angry
because they were not on the hill. / Our Lady responded: "This doesn't
matter." / Mirjana then asked if Our Lady would be angry if they did not
return to the hill, / but waited for the Apparitions at the church.
Somehow Our Lady seemed undecided (according to Mirjana), / but then She
agreed to appear in the church and added: / "Always at the same time. Go
in the peace of God." / Mirjana, who had been reading an account of the
Apparitions at Lourdes, / thought she understood that the Virgin would
return for another three days, / until Friday, as She had in Lourdes. /
However, this was only Mirjana's interpretation.

sign and the Gospa said yes. / They asked how long She would continue to
visit them. / "My sweet angels, even if I were to leave the sign, many
people will not believe. / Many people will only come here and bow down,
but people must be converted
and do penance." / The visionaries asked the Virgin about the sick and She
said they would find the
cure in strong faith. The Gospa then departed: "Go in the peace of God."
