Dear Family of Mary!
Next Monday, March 18, 2019 – Our Lady will appear to Mirjana Soldo for her yearly apparition. Starting on June 24, 1981, Our Lady appeared to Mirjana for 18 months, every day. It was heaven for Mirjana. I want to share Mirjana’s own words about the cessation of her daily apparitions, and how it came to be that Our Lady would appear to her every year on the 18th of March. Her account of this transition in her relationship with Our Lady is from “My Heart will Triumph”:
For the First 18 months, Our Lady came every day. When she spoke to me, it was as if the whole universe was speaking to me. I drew strength and love from those moments – strength to persevere in my daily struggle, and love to forgive the people who persecuted me. When you see Our Lady, it is impossible to hate anyone because you become aware that she loves even the person who mistreats you. That person is her child as much as you are, and her love for all of her children is indescribably. I have never seen that kind of love on Earth…
On December 23, 1982, Our Lady appeared to me as usual, and, like always it was a beautiful experience that filled my soul with joy. But towards the end, she looked at me with tenderness and said, “On Christmas Day, I will appear to you for the last time.
The apparition ended, and I was left stunned. I had clearly heard what she said, but I could not believe it. How could I live without apparitions? It seemed impossible and I prayed intensely for it not to be true.
The next day, on Christmas Eve, she again tried to prepare me, but I still could not comprehend it. I spent most of the night begging God to give me more time with her.
While my parents and brother celebrated Christmas day with singing, prayers and food, I was far too consumed with worry to join in. There I was, surrounded by my loving family, about to spend part of Christmas with the same woman who gave birth to Jesus two thousand years before, and I could not even smile.
My anticipation soared as the time of the apparition approached. My mother, father and brother, wearing their finest Christmas attire, kneeled beside me. We prayed the rosary in preparation for her coming. When Our Lady finally appeared, she smiled gently and greeted me in her usual motherly way. I was captivated; her dress radiated the same spectacular golden color it had the previous Christmas, and in that moment – with all of her grace and beauty shining down on me – it was impossible to be sad anymore.
My parents told me later that my final daily apparition lasted for an extraordinary 45 minutes. Our Lady and I talked about many things. We summarized our entire 18 months together – everything we had said to each other and everything she had revealed to me. She entrusted me with the tenth and final secret, and she explained that I will need to choose a priest for a special role. Ten days before the date of the event foretold in the first secret, I am to tell him what will happen and when. He and I are then supposed to pray and fast for seven days, and, three days before the event, the priest will reveal it to the world. All ten secrets will be revealed in this way.
Our Lady also gave me a precious gift. She told me that she would appear to me once a year, on March 18, for the rest of my life. March 18 is my birthday, but Our Lady did not choose that date for that reason. For her, my birthday is not different from anyone else’s. Only when the things contained in the secrets start to happen will the world understand why she chose the 18th of March. The significance of the date will be clear. She also said that I would experience some additional apparitions. [The 2nd of the month apparitions]
She then held out something like a rolled-up scroll, explaining that all the secrets were written on it, and that I should show it to the priest I choose when the time comes to reveal them. I took it from her hand without looking at it.
“Now you will have to turn to God in faith like any other person,” she said. “Mirjana, I have chosen you; I have confided in you everything that is essential. I have also shown you many terrible things. You must now bear it all with courage. Think of me and think of the tears I must shed for that. You must remain brave. You have quickly grasped the messages. You must also understand now that I have to go away. Be courageous.”
She promised to always be near me and to help me in my most difficult situations, but the pain I felt in my soul was nearly unbearable. Our Lady was aware of my torment and she asked me to pray. I recited the prayer that I often prayed when I was alone with her, the Salve Regina…She smiled in the most motherly way and then she was gone. (Mirjana Soldo. “My Heart Will Triumph”. P. 135-37)
Mirjana suffered greatly from the loss of Our Lady’s daily apparitions. But she was brave and has continued to follow Our Lady all these years. Her book is wonderful, and I recommend it to all of you as a way to glimpse the life of a visionary. (You can order the book here: www.MyHeartWillTriumph.com )
On March 18, Mirjana will again see Our Lady for their yearly visit. Let’s pray for Mirjana that she will have courage! And let’s anticipate the message Our Lady will give us through Mirjana. We do so need Our Lady’s guidance in these days.
I will send out the message as quickly as I can, and Mary TV will post the apparition on our webpage as well.
Here is Our Lady’s messages for March 18, 2018.
March 18, 2018
“Dear children! My earthly life was simple. I loved, and I rejoiced in small things. I loved life – the gift from God – even though pain and sufferings pierced my heart. My children, I had the strength of faith and boundless trust in God’s love. All those who have the strength of faith are stronger. Faith makes you live according to what is good and then the light of God’s love always comes at the desired moment. That is the strength which sustains in pain and suffering. My children, pray for the strength of faith, trust in the Heavenly Father, and do not be afraid. Know that not a single creature who belongs to God will be lost but will live forever. Every pain has its end and then life in freedom begins there where all of my children come – where everything is returned. My children, your battle is difficult. It will be even more difficult, but you follow my example. Pray for the strength of faith; trust in the love of the Heavenly Father. I am with you. I am manifesting myself to you. I am encouraging you. With immeasurable motherly love I am caressing your souls. Thank you.”
Thank you, dearest Mother! We love you!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
