For those who believe in God no explanation is necessary.
For those who do not believe in God, no explanation will suffice!
A Lady from heaven gives a piece of paper to a girl in Medjugorje, (Mirjana). The paper contains secrets of future events. When the scientific community heard about the paper they asked to study it. Having studied it, linguistic experts from around the world say there is no known language. The paper is also carbon tested to determine age and substance. Scientists are unable to determine the age of the paper. They concluded that the parchment is made of an unknown substance.
Some of the most frequently witnessed signs in the beginning involved those seen on Cross Mountain. Some of the signs witnessed by both the villagers and pilgrims have been the Cross spinning, changing into a column of light, or disappearing and a silhouette of Our Lady appearing. These signs lasted anywhere from a few minutes to half-an-hour. It was more intense and lasted for half-an-hour on October 21 and 22, 1981, during the trial of Father Jozo Zovko, the pastor of St. James Church in Medjugorje.(1)
The following major scientific researches investigated Medjugorje apparitions:
Felicia, Countess of Abensperg and Traun, has been repeatedly coming to Medjugorje for about 20 years now. As a Christian and a mother of a large family, as well as a citizen of the world, she is involved in many religious and humanitarian activities.
Our Lady appears to six visionaries, which can see her and talk with her during regular apparitions. During some of these apparitions, Our Lady gives messages. One of most frequented topics of these messages are appeals for prayers and love.
On June 24, 1981 at around 6pm six little children went outside of Medjugorje on a little hill named Podbrdo, or locally known as Crnica.
Those children were Ivanka Ivanković, Mirjana Dragičević, Vicka Ivanković, Ivan
Dragičević, Ivan Ivanković and Milka Pavlović. While there, they saw a beautiful, young woman holding a baby in her arms. She never said anything that day, but tried to show them with her hands to come closer to her. The children got very scared and ran away, although they all thought they saw Virgin Mary.
Supernatural signs are a method God has used throughout history to know Him and to bring His children to conversion. It is a way God speaks to us or to incite our hearts to believe and come to Him. Yet, Jesus once said:
“An evil and unfaithful generation seeks a sign, but no sign will be given it except the sign of Jonah the prophet.”
Yet still, Our Lady says:

“…God wants to save you and sends you messages through men, nature, and so many things which can only help you to understand that you must change the direction of your life…”
