The earth has never seen anything like it. It will appear suddenly, as if from nowhere, or directly from the sky itself. It will come in such a way that people will have no terms to describe it. It will appear on the ground, it can be seen and photographed, but it cannot be touched. Already today a webcam is constantly capturing where it will appear.
But first of all it will make many more people believe. According to the seers, one day a permanent sign will appear on the site of the first apparition. Beautiful and indestructible, the sign will lead to many conversions. According to Marija, there will also be healings.
“Of course, it will be clear to everyone that it is not a built and assembled thing. No one will be able to say that it was brought and placed in that particular spot by, say, someone from Medjugorje, ”Mirjana told Catholic author-journalist Michael H. Brown in 2002.
Medjugorje: A Huge Grace and Possibility to Believe
The Permanent Sign is the third secret known by the visionaries of Medjugorje. It is the only secret of which it is known that all the seers know it.
At least four of them also know when the sign will appear.
Since the first two secrets have come true and belong to the past at the time of the third secret, the sign will be perceived and experienced by the people in the light of the first two secrets, or at least in the light of the first one of which Mirjana said that “it will shake people “And” will make people look at themselves in a new light “.
The Permanent Sign is destined to change more hearts because it will have been preceded by the first two secrets. And, according to the seers, changing hearts is all the sign will be about.
Most of all, they say, the sign will be given to those who do not believe: “The third secret concerns the sign that Our Lady will leave here, on the mountain of apparitions. This sign will remain forever. It will be given above all for those people who are still far from God. Our Lady wants to give these people who will see the sign another chance to believe in God, ”Vicka told Radio Maria in January 2008.
A previous interview with Mirjana supports Vicka’s statements..
“They will perceive the sign as a place where they can convert. They will go to the mountain to pray and they will be forgiven ”, Mirjana prophesied in 1983.
“When the permanent sign comes, people will come here from all over the world in even greater numbers. Many others will believe, ”Jakov said.
A Test for Hearts
However, according to the seers, there will also be people who will see the sign and still do not believe it, or who will not receive the impulse to convert that many other people will receive by seeing it:
“I want to say to those people who will see and will not believe, that Our Lady leaves everyone free to believe or not, but these are those whose hearts are too closed. It is the same thing that Our Lady told us:
If one wants to go to Heaven, he will go to Heaven. If one wants to go to hell, he will go to hell
Those who are far from God and do not want to believe will not believe in the sign. Those who do not know God, but have good intentions and a desire to love, will benefit from the sign. But I think those who do everything against God will run away from the mark. They won’t believe, ”Vicka said in 2008.
25 years earlier, during her interviews with Fr. Janko Bubalo, a younger and a little less diplomatic Vicka had said a lot about the sign, albeit in a more immediate way:
P. Janko: “Do you know exactly what the sign will be?”
P. Janko: “Do you know, when the Virgin will make it more evident for us others?”
Vicka: “I also know this”.
P. Janko: “And why is the Virgin leaving her mark here?”
Vicka: “To show people that you are here among us… I will limit myself to saying this: whoever does not believe without a sign will not believe even with a sign. And I also tell you this: woe to those who delay their conversion, waiting for the sign. I once told you that many would come, and perhaps even kneel before the sign, but still they will not believe. Be happy not to be among them! “
In saying this, however, at the end of 1983, Vicka had simply paraphrased a message that the Virgin Mary had given the same year in spring:
All the secrets I have confided will come true and the visible sign will also manifest, but don’t wait for this sign to satisfy your curiosity. This, before the visible sign, is a time of grace for believers. Therefore be converted and deepen your faith! When the visible sign comes, for many it will already be too late. (December 23, 1982)

What Does ‘Too Late’ Mean?
In the first months of 2008, Father Livio Fanzaga of Radio Maria asked Vicka to explain what the Virgin meant by saying “too late”:
Vicka: “Our Lady did not explain why it will be too late and I did not ask, she only said that we are living in a time of grace”.
Father Livio: “So, is it important to convert before the sign manifests itself?”
Vicka: “Every day Our Lady invites us to conversion, to the conversion of our hearts, do you understand? And 27 and a half years later Our Lady is still with us and our hearts are still too closed, too far away. I do not know. I don’t know what it could be, but ‘too late’ seems right ”.
While the sign is primarily for non-believers, it also serves another purpose, Vicka explained to Radio Maria that day.
The conversation continued:
Fr Livio: “So, this is a time of grace. This is the time of conversion. Our Lady said: ‘Do not wait for the sign to convert.’ So why leave a mark as a last and last aid: is it in order to move the Church to recognize the apparitions as authentic? “
On March 18, 2020 Mirjana surprised the world announcing her monthly apparitions have ended…Talk among people in Medjugorje has turned to the arrival of the “Permanent Sign”. Vicka says: “The indestructible Sign from God will last forever.”…I have seen it!”
