August 24, 1981 – Message from Our Lady of Medjugorje

In Vicka’s diary,  August 25th, she writes: Yesterday, Monday the 24th at 10:45am, Mirjana and I were at Ivan’s house. We heard a commotion and we went out running. Outside, everybody was looking at the cross on Krizevac. At the spot of the cross, Mirjana, Jakov, Ivan and I saw the Blessed Virgin, and the people saw something like her statue, which then began to disappear, and the cross appeared again. Over the entire sky everyone saw, written in gold letters, the word “MIR” (which means peace in Croatian). Vicka’s diary then reports the apparition on August 25th. A little after Our Lady prayed for peace, a large inscription appeared on top of Krizevac… The word “MIR” was seen by the pastor and many persons from the village. The visionaries affirmed that the Blessed Virgin promised that there would still be many other signs as forerunners before the great sign in Medjugorje, and in other parts of the world.
