On Saturday February 9, 2013 the Church of Saint Mary Major in Trieste, Italy, was packed for the visit of Medjugorje visionary Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo. Hundreds more stood outside and watched on a giant screen. At eight o'clock there was Holy Mass, with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary. Mirjana delighted all those present with her loving testimony. She told the story of Medjugorje, starting from the June 24 thirty-two years ago. "Dear children, do not be afraid of me," With these first words of the Virgin, the apparitions began. With the communist regime of the time, it was risky to climb the hill of the Apparition, but the six visionaries, were able to overcome the difficulties and never miss any appointment with the dear Lady.
Mirjana said the task assigned was to announce to the world with Father Petar the secrets of the Madonna. Fr Petar Ljubicic is a central figure in the Medjugorje events. He is the priest to whom the visionary, Mirjana, will announce the Secrets ten days before they take place. He will announce them to the world three days before.
Mirjana said that we must not be afraid of these secrets. "Only those who have not known the love of God will be afraid". "Who can be sure that tomorrow he will still be alive? That's what the Madonna teaches us: to be ready at any moment to go before God. She said: "My children, what I began in Fatima, I will finish in Medjugorje, my heart will triumph ... this time, it is a time for decisions. .. "
"Everything depends on our will and if someone is privileged. We must not judge or criticize the priests, but help and support them... They need our prayers and our love ... there is the time we live in now and there is time in which the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph. Between these two times is a bridge and the bridge is our priests." Mirjana stated that the Blessed Virgin has asked for prayers for unbelievers and to end the scourge of abortion.
