On 2 September, during the reading in Italian of the message that Our Lady gave to the visionary of Medjugorje Mirjana, the sun began to throb.
The typical phenomenon of the place of Marian worship was recorded live by one of the faithful who came on pilgrimage precisely to attend the apparition.
The miracle of the pulsating sun
There are countless testimonies of pilgrims who, having arrived in Medjugorje, witnessed unusual movements of the sun. Some have seen it move in a circular manner, some change color, and some have witnessed an unusual pulse . What is the explanation for these phenomena? This question is opposed by two different theories: the first is that of the faithful who consider it a sign of the divine presence in that place , the second is that of the skeptics who consider it an optical illusion.
To contradict the skeptics’ version there are numerous videos of the phenomena that show what witnesses witnessed . Even in the face of these tests the laity tend to remain skeptical. In fact, many believe it is a question of video tampering (effects added in post production). The effect of the pulsating sun could be obtained through the light overexposure of the sensor known as CCD. In this case, therefore, it could be a simple focusing malfunction.
The video of the throbbing sun of 2 September 2019
As you may have understood, believing or not that the solar pulses are a miracle is a question of faith, exactly like believing in the apparitions of Medjugorje. The last video testimony of the sun miracle was recorded by a pilgrim last September 2, while reading the message delivered to Mirjiana . In the video we can clearly see the sunlight changing in intensity and it seems that the Star of the Solar System has luminous contractions. Optical effect or miracle? We leave this at your discretion, one thing is certain, the phenomenon is beautiful to see.
September 2, 2019 special message
“Dear children, pray! Pray the Rosary every day—that wreath of flowers which, as a mother, directly connects me with your pains, sufferings, desires, and hopes. Apostles of my love, I am with you through the grace and the love of my Son, and I am asking for prayers of you. The world is in such need of your prayers for souls to be converted. With complete trust, open your hearts to my Son, and in them He will inscribe the summary of His words—which is love. Live in an unbreakable connection with the Most Sacred Heart of my Son. My children, as a mother, I am telling you that it is high time for you to kneel before my Son to acknowledge Him as your God, the centre of your life. Offer gifts to Him—that which He most loves—which is love towards neighbour, mercy, and pure hearts. Apostles of my love, many of my children still do not acknowledge my Son as their God; they have not yet come to know His love. But you, with your prayer pronounced from a pure and open heart, by the gifts which you offer to my Son, will make even the hardest hearts open. Apostles of my love, the strength of prayer pronounced from the heart—a powerful prayer full of love—changes the world. Therefore, my children: pray, pray, pray. I am with you. Thank you.”
