“Mirjana you know all the secrets. Even without revealing anything from the secrets, can you say something today to the world about the Secrets?
“The first thing I have to say is not to be afraid of these secrets because for us believers it could only be better later, because our destiny is paradise.
I would suggest to do what Mary asks us to do and that is to pray more, to fast more, to do more penance, to help the sick, the elderly, to celebrate masses for souls in purgatory and more prayer for the atheists.
Many do not know this but Our Lady suffers greatly for the atheists, she is sad for them because they do not know what awaits them.”
May I ask you, Mirjana, that I have heard that Our Lady showed you a punishment for a region of the world. You were very sad. So are the people right that what they here about the secrets and punishments is frightening and they should be afraid?
Mirjana: It’s not like that, I think that whoever is a believer must know that God is the Father and the Madonna is the Mother and the Church is our home. If you think that way you should not be afraid because our Father and our mother will not abandon you. But yes, I was sad. I can say that I was very sad for only children. Nothing else.
We learned a few years ago that the 7th secret – a punishment – was reduced thanks to the prayer and fasting of many. Can the other secrets, punishments or warnings also be lightened by our prayer, fasting, etc.?
Ok, let me answer it this way. When I received the seventh secret I felt very bad because the secret seemed worse than the others. Because of this I prayed to Our Lady to pray to God to see if the anything could be done to reduce the difficulty of the seventh secret. Then Our Lady told me that we need to pray a lot. Our Lady also promised to pray. I have prayed together with many people about the seventh secret.
Then in a surprise, Our Lady told me that a part of the punishment was able to be diminished. I would like to say this: with prayer, with fasting we can change the world. But now I do not want to talk about the secrets any longer, because secrets are secret. The secrets must be performed, because they belong to the world now. And sadly the the world deserves it.
Medjugorje: the visionary Mirjana, speaks of the 7th secret.
In many messages, Our Lady insists on fasting (also on January 28th). Why do you think fasting is so important?
This is the strongest thing for me, since this is the only thing we give to God as a sacrifice. Why did you also ask us what else we give to God compared to what He offers us? Fasting is very important, it is very strong because it is precisely this sacrifice that we directly offer to God when we say “Today I do not eat, fast and offer this sacrifice to God”. He also said: “When you fast do not tell everyone you fasted: you and God are enough”. Nothing else.
On the 7.6.1987 feast of Pentecost the Marian Year began. Fr Slavko says: the Pope gives us 13 years to prepare for the two thousandth anniversary of the birth of Jesus; Our Lady, who knows us better, gave us almost 20 years (from the beginning of the apparitions): but everything, Medjugorje and Marian Year, has been preparing for the Jubilee since 2000. Do you consider this Marian Year important? Because?
Certainly it is important already for the mere fact that it is the Marian Year. To … I can not say anything. I can not. I must not.
Before leaving us, do you still want to tell us something?
I have already said everything. I invite once again to pray, to fast for the unbelievers, for the atheists, because they will need us more. They are our brothers and our sisters. Nothing else and thanks for this meeting.
