On July 2, 2017, the honeymooners (their names will remain private because they do not seek attention) found the perfect spot to witness Mirjana’s apparition.
They were delighted with their luck, but it was 3:00 in the morning and Mirjana’s apparition was still hours away. Even with the wait before them, they could not think of a better place to be on earth.
So many little miracles, it seemed, had occurred to get them to Medjugorje for their honeymoon that they were not about to let a long wait on a rocky hill put them in a bad mood.
They took in the early morning splendor and realized the wait was now a blessing. They were surrounded by beautiful people, full of faith, full of love, full of peace.
As they were taking in the unique experience in the comfortable early morning air suddenly a chill took hold of the new bride. At first, she shrugged it off; after all, it was 3:30 in the morning and the brain is wired to think that it is chilly outdoors that time of day – no matter where you are.
But the cold would not leave. She looked around the crowded hill and noticed most of the people were engaged in easy conversation or deep prayer. Nobody seemed uncomfortable. She reached into a backpack and pulled out a sweatshirt. No help. The chill was turning into to an unbearable coldness.
“I’m freezing” she told her husband. “Is it getting cold out here?” With a puzzled look, he shook his head. “Nope, it’s beautiful out here. It’s a perfect 71 degrees”. He then reached into his pack and pulled out his sweatshirt. “Here, maybe this will help.”
She put it on but the cold continued to get worse. She now felt she was being “attacked” by the cold – It was a bitter winter cold – she was now in a state she calls “frozenness”.

Her husband describes the events as follows:
“We were there at 3 am. my wife was literally attacked with frozenness.Cold shivers. She had two sweatshirts on. It was unbearable. This was serious. We had a perfect spot at the ropes facing where Mirjana would kneel.My wife was in a state of shiver. I said OK, let’s leave. WE LEFT THE SPOT.It’s Not about the visionaries. It’s all about Our Lord. Everything Medjugorje points directly towards Christ. What was I going to do? Let her leave herself?We left at 6:30 am. Then we got lucky a guy with security access walked us back up to our spot at 8:15. We didn’t have that planned. It was a true blessing.When the apparition started, my wife saw orbs white glitter by the blue cross and a sense of heat and peace. All coldness was gone. Then suddenly after Mirjana fell into ecstasy, a woman in the crowd started to scream in a terrifying manner. It was unreal, to say the least.”
