Very Important Messages from the Madonna
Medjugorje visionary Vicka's public apparition at the Shrine of Saint Girio near Potenza Picena, Italy, on Saturday remained a well-kept secret. Nevertheless 500 people turned up. Vicka arrived around 4pm, when the worship was already in progress and was greeted with spontaneous applause. She was accompanied by her husband Mario and Sister Kornelija. Shortly before 5pm the priest gave the benediction, then another led the Holy Rosary. Vicka was invited to conduct the third decade, which started in Croatian as usual. At 5:40pm the apparition commenced preceeded by the usual "loud" kneeling, as can be seen from the video. Her ecstasy lasted just over 12 minutes. At the end of the apparition, Vicka prayed the Croatian part of the first 10 Hail Marys. The congregation continued in Italian. She then turned to those present for her testimony, with the help of a translator.
Vicka gave a long introduction to prayer, emphasizing the Madonna's insistence on inviting her children to pray with an open heart, and above all to renew prayer in the family. In particular she showed a "practical way" to those present on how to begin to pray ie always to start FIRST with the Our Father, to free the mind from all of our thoughts (and therefore better orient in a spirit of prayer), then adding the day after a Hail Mary, the next day still the Glory because it is right to give glory to our Father who is in heaven, as she pointed out. Then she continued with the usual example of the plant which grows well if watered with a few drops of water every day. Similarly with prayer. It is essential to nourish the soul.
She said Our Lady invites us to pray every day the Glorious mysteries, the Joyful mysteries and the sorrowful mysteries of the Rosary. Some people pray the Luminous mysteries as well. Vicka named explicitly several times Satan (as Our Lady has in her messages) and stressed clearly that the MOST powerful weapon we have against him is the Holy Rosary. She also talked about her experience of visiting Paradise, Purgatory and Hell with Jakov, but this time it seemed as if the emphasis was in particular on the importance of praying for the souls in purgatory, for which ONLY WE can do something.Marco MDJ Piagentini
