On November 6, 1986 in a message to the visionaries, Our Lady revealed something unknown to the world until that moment.
She told the visionaries that prayers for poor souls in Purgatory are necessary to help them reach heaven, but then she added that these prayers help you in your life here on earth through the intercession from those in Heaven.
Our Lady said
“Dear children! Today I wish to call you to pray daily for souls in purgatory. For every soul, prayer and grace is necessary to reach God, and the love of God.
By doing this, dear children, you obtain new intercessors who will help you in life to realize that all the earthly things are not important for you, that only Heaven is that for which it is necessary to strive.
Therefore, dear children, pray without ceasing that you may be able to help yourselves and the others to whom your prayers will bring joy. Thank you for having responded to my call. ”
On March 18, 1995 after her Apparition with the Queen of Peace, Mirjana Prayed for the souls in Purgatory after a very difficult and sad moment with Our Lady which shook her greatly.
Mirjana told the story in this way:
The apparition lasted ten minutes. Mirjana was all in tears and withdrew to her room. Here is what she said about her meeting with Our Lady.
“I prayed the Our Father and the Glory be with our Lady three times. The first one was for unbelievers, especially for those who have not experienced God’s love.
The second was for the souls in purgatory and the third for the intentions of those who were present at the apparition. Our Lady was not happy during the apparition as she has been known to be during past apparitions for my birthday.
She talked to me about the secrets but I cannot say anything about that.”
In answer to questions why Mirjana cried and if Our Lady give any message, the visionary answered:
“It is hard for me when Our Lady goes away. The meeting with Our Lady is a fulfilment of everything. I feel completed.
But when she leaves, I realize that I’m here, on earth, that I’m going on without her as if I were forsaken even though I know I am not. It is really hard, so hard.
Let us now read the special message given to Mirjana on her birthday that gave her great difficulty.
“Dear children! Already for many years as a Mother, I have been teaching you faith and God’s love. You have not shown gratitude to the dear Father nor have you given him glory. You have become empty and your heart has become hard and without love toward your neighbours’ sufferings. I am teaching you love and showing you that the dear Father loved you but you have not loved him. He sacrificed his Son for your salvation, my children. As long as you do not love, you will not know your Father’s love. You won’t get to know him because God is love. Love and don’t be afraid, my children, because there is no fear in love. If your hearts are open to the Father and if they are full of love toward him, then why any fear of what is to come? Those who are afraid are the ones who do not love because they are waiting for punishments and because they know how empty and hard they are. Children, I am leading you to love, to the dear Father. I am leading you to eternal life. Eternal life is my Son. Receive him and you have received love. ”
