02.10.2011. -Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s October 2, 2011 Message Given to Mirjana on the Day for Non-Believers
As night fell upon the Blue Cross Saturday evening October 1,2011 at the base of Podbrdo in Medjugorje where the apparition would take place early Sunday morning October 2nd, the moon appeared on the horizon of Cross Mountain. Those who were spending the night peacefully watched as the moon slipped behind the rocky slope and out of sight. The stars in the sky grew brighter and the Big Dipper was spotted again, cradling the whole valley same as last month. The Church of St. James too was visible, illuminated by electric lighting.
Small groups of pilgrims began to gather at the Blue Cross; some were prepared to spend the night, others to pray for a few minutes and then leave. By 9:00 pm when a group of Caritas pilgrims went to spend the night praying and waiting for Our Lady, there were already several hundred pilgrims around the Cross. They found their spots and waited with no expectations other than being in the presence of Our Lady. They were rewarded the next morning as most of them were able to see Mirjana as Our Lady appeared to her. They were able to look into the eyes that beheld the Mother of God. There were petitions and rosaries placed at the base of the statue through out the night and up to apparition time. During the apparition there were many pilgrims on their knees imploring Our Lady’s intercession and we could hear the sounds of weeping around us. It seemed to be a very intense experience for the pilgrims gathered. The crowds were still descending from the Blue Cross well after 11:00 am Sunday morning. What a gift to be in the presence of Our Lady during the Time of Grace.
Also today my motherly heart calls you to prayer, to your personal relationship with God the Father, to the joy of prayer in Him.
God the Father is not far away from you and He is not unknown to you.
He revealed Himself to you through my Son and gave you Life that is my Son.
Therefore, my children, do not give in to temptations that want to separate you from God the Father.
Do not attempt to have families and societies without Him.
Pray that your hearts may be flooded by the goodness which comes only from my Son, Who is sincere goodness. Only hearts filled with goodness can comprehend and accept God the Father.
I will continue to lead you. In a special way I implore you not to judge your shepherds.
My children, are you forgetting that God the Father called them?
Mirjana said: “I have never said anything before, but are you aware, that the Mother of God was with us? Each of us should ask himself: ‘Are you worthy of this?’ I am saying this because it is difficult for me to see Her (Our Lady) in pain, because each of us is seeking a miracle, but does not want to work a miracle in himself.”
