December 25, 2023  Monthly Message to Marija (Then Prays for the World in Aramaic)

December 25, 2023  Monthly Message to Marija:

“Dear children! I am carrying my Son Jesus to you to fill your hearts with peace, because He is peace. Little children, seek Jesus in the silence of your heart that He be born anew. The world needs Jesus, therefore seek Him through prayer, because He gives Himself daily to each of you.” Today Our Lady came solemnly dressed with little Jesus in her arms. Jesus extended His hand in a sign of blessing as Our Lady prayed over us in Aramaic.

It is a rare occurrence for the official Medjugorje Parish website to include content beyond the “message” from Our Lady to the visionaries.

On Dec 25, 2025 the parish revealed that Our Lady came with baby Jesus and that She prayed in Aramaic “to us” which really means to the whole world because the Monthly message on the 25th is meant to be shared with the entire world.

Summary of the Marian Events at Medjugorje:

Since June 1981, six young people in the village of Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina, have claimed to be experiencing daily apparitions of the Virgin Mary. This ongoing phenomenon has attracted millions of pilgrims from around the world, making Medjugorje a major Catholic pilgrimage site. However, the apparitions and their legitimacy remain a subject of debate and controversy.

Key Points:

  • Six visionaries: Mirjana Dragičević, Vicka Ivanković, Ivan Dragičević, Ivanka Ivanković, Marija Pavlovic, and Jakov Colo claim to see the Virgin Mary
  • Messages of peace and conversion: The Virgin Mary reportedly delivers messages to the world through the visionaries, emphasizing themes of peace, prayer, conversion, and personal transformation.
  • Unofficial status: The Catholic Church has not officially recognized the Medjugorje apparitions as authentic, although pilgrimages to the site are permitted.
  • Spiritual renewal: Despite the lack of official recognition, many pilgrims report experiencing deep spiritual renewal and personal transformation after visiting Medjugorje.

Additional Points:

  • The alleged apparitions began on June 24, 1981, and continue to this day.
  • The Virgin Mary is said to have given ten “secrets” to the visionaries, which are only to be revealed at a future time.
  • Medjugorje has become a center for prayer, confession, and Eucharistic devotion.
  • The presence of a permanent international priest community ensures pastoral care for pilgrims.

Overall, Medjugorje presents a complex and multifaceted phenomenon. While the apparitions remain unconfirmed by the Church, the impact on millions of pilgrims and the site’s role in spiritual growth cannot be ignored. It is ultimately up to each individual to form their own conclusions about the events at Medjugorje.
