Mirjana has often said: “Only when the things contained in the secrets start to happen will the world understand why Our Lady chose March 18. The significance of the date will be clear.”
On March 18, 2020 Mirjana announced to the world that the Virgin Mary will no longer appear to her on the second of every month, as she has doing since 1987.
With a very significent announcement occuring on March 18th, at the height of the global covid – 19 pandemic, many people now in Medjugorje are talking openly that perhaps all this is leading to the arrival of the “permanent sign”.
It it is worth noting that the permanent sign is part of the Third secret and it is the only Medugorje secret that the visionaries have been allowed to speak about.
The following is part of Padre Livio’s interview with Vicka on on Radio Maria about the permanent sign:
Question: “I was really struck by what the Madonna said about the third secret, which concerns the sign on the mountain. You seers said that it will be a visible sign, an indestructible sign that comes from God. However, She also added, ‘Hurry and convert yourselves. When the promised sign on the hill will be given, it will be too late.’ Another time, She also said, ‘And even after I’ve left this sign on the hill which I have promised to you, many will not believe. They will come to the hill, they will kneel, but they won’t believe.’ Why is it, in your opinion, that people will see the sign, but they won’t convert?
Vicka: “The third secret is about a sign that She will leave here [Medjugorje] on the Mountain of the Apparitions. This sign will remain forever. It is given above all for those people who are still far away from God. The Madonna wishes to give these people who will see the sign a chance to believe in God. I was able to see this sign.
Question: “You have already seen the sign?
Vicka: “Yes, I saw it in a vision.
This sign will be indestructible and will remain in that place forever. She leaves this sign, a sign that no man can make; it is something only God can make and so nobody will be able say that it is a small thing or something else. This arrives in such a way that they won’t have words to say what it is.
