It is a well-known, documented medical fact that Vicka Ivankovic has been plagued by suffering for several years. She is said to have had a brain tumor that caused severe headaches, coma state periods, nausea, etc. for years. However, on September 25, 1988, the pain stopped. Vicka wrote about her healing six months before it happened. Her following letter explains.
Bijakovici – February 4, 1988
That which I promised to you – a ceasing of pains; September 25, 1988. Only under the seal of confession. My greeting to you! Your little sister.
Fr. Janko Bubalo wrote the following on the bottom of Vicka’s letter:
Received – Fr. Janko Bubalo, February 4, 1988
This statement was sealed in an envelope and delivered on February 4, 1988 with the instructions to be opened on September 25, 1988.
1. Fr. Janko Bubalo
2. Fr. Vinko Orgicevic
3. Fr. Luca Susac.
Father Janko Bubalo, along with the other 2 witnesses, received a letter from Vicka dated February 4, 1988 and were told to open the letter on September 25, 1988. When the letter was opened, Vicka stopped having pains – just as it was stated in the letter. The president of the new commission assigned to study Medjugorje was present when the priests opened their letter. It was no coincidence that Bishop Komarica was there.
Vicka’s healing has to be of significance in helping prove the commission that the apparitions are indeed real and true. The letter was sealed for six months in three different places. (1)
