02.08.2013. - Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s August 2, 2013 A.D.
Apparition and Message Given to Mirjana on the Day for Nonbelievers
Yesterday on August 1, 2013, anxious to get the best seat in which to see Mirjana and be close to Our Lady during the August 2, 2013 apparition to Mirjana, the first two pilgrims arrived at the Blue Cross at 2:30 p.m. to spend the night in preparation for Our Lady. These two American pilgrims were joined by another 15 American pilgrims by 6:00 p.m., and the slow trickle of “early bird” pilgrims continued for a few more hours. By morning there were thousands and thousands of pilgrims covering the mountain, many of whom were youth who were in Medjugorje to also participate in the Youth Festival. Several flags from different countries waived high in the air as the youth showed their patriotic love for their nations. Mirjana arrived with a smile on her face but very quickly entered into the seriousness of preparing for Our Lady. She shed a few tears while praying the rosary before her face lit up with joy at the arrival of Our Lady. The apparition lasted approximately 5 minutes, and the mountain was completely silent until the end of the apparition when many in the crowd, perhaps involuntarily, cried “Oh!” as they saw Mirjana’s face turn upward signaling the departure of Our Lady.
“Dear children; If only you would open your hearts to me with complete trust, you would comprehend everything. You would comprehend with how much love I am calling you; with how much love I desire to change you, to make you happy; with how much love I desire to make you followers of my Son and give you peace in the fullness of my Son. You would comprehend the immeasurable greatness of my motherly love. That is why, my children, pray because through prayer your faith grows and love is born, the love along which even the cross is not unendurable because you do not carry it alone. In union with my Son you glorify the name of the Heavenly Father. Pray, pray for the gift of love, because love is the only truth: it forgives everything, it serves everyone and it sees a brother in everyone. My children, my apostles, great is the trust that the Heavenly Father has given you through me, His handmaid, to help those who do not know Him, that they may reconcile with Him and follow Him. That is why I am teaching you to love, because only if you have love will you be able to respond to Him. Again I am calling you to love your shepherds and to pray that, at this difficult time, the name of my Son may be glorified under their guidance. Thank you.”
