Marija, who was still attending a school for hairdressers in Mostar, received only an abridged account on the days when she was in Medjugorje. For Vicka, it lasted until April 10, 1985, and is a long account which filled three notebooks. Up to this day, the visionaries have not received authorization to reveal the contents. 982

March 29, 1984 Dear children! In a special way this evening I am calling you to perseverance in trials. Consider how the Almighty is still suffering today on account of your sins. So when sufferings come, offer them up as a sacrifice to God. Thank you for having responded to my call.1520
March 27, 1986 Dear children! I wish to thank you for all the sacrifices, and I invite you to the greatest sacrifice, the sacrifice of love. Without love, you are not able to accept either me or my Son. Without love, you cannot give an account of your experiences to others. Therefore, dear children, I call you to begin to live love within yourselves. Thank you for having responded to my call.1734
February 25, 1987 Dear children! Today I want to wrap you all in my mantle and lead you all along the way of conversion. Dear children, I beseech you, surrender to the Lord your entire past, all the evil that has accumulated in your hearts. I want each one of you to be happy, but in sin nobody can be happy. Therefore, dear children, pray, and in prayer you shall realize a new way of joy. Joy will manifest in your hearts, and thus you shall be joyful witnesses of that which I and My Son want from each one of you. I am blessing you. Thank you for having responded to my call.1828
December 13, 1984 Dear children! You know that the season of joy is getting closer, but without love you will achieve nothing. So first of all, begin to love your own family, everyone in the parish, and then youll be able to love and accept all who are coming over here. Now let these seven days be a week when you need to learn to love. Thank you for having responded to my call.1592
February 28, 1985 Dear children! Today I call you to live the word this week: I love God! Dear children, through love you will achieve everything and even what you think is impossible. God wants this parish to belong completely to Him. And thats what I want, too. Thank you for having responded to my call.1616
September 26, 1985 Dear children! I thank you for all the prayers. Thank you for all the sacrifices. I wish to tell you, dear children, to renew the messages which I am giving you. Especially live the fast, because by fasting you will achieve and permit me the joy of the whole plan, which God is planning here in Medjugorje, to be fulfilled. Thank you for having responded to my call.1682
October 25, 1987 My dear children! Today I want to call all of you to decide for Paradise. The way is difficult for those who have not decided for God. Dear children, decide and believe that God is offering Himself to you in His fullness. You are invited, and you need to answer the call of the Father, who is calling you through me. Pray, because in prayer each one of you will be able to achieve complete love. I am blessing you, and I desire to help you so that each one of you might be under my motherly mantle. Thank you for having responded to my call.1850
November 2, 2007 Dear children, today I call you to open your hearts to the Holy Spirit and permit Him to transform you. My children, God is the immeasurable good, and, therefore, as a mother, I implore you to pray, pray, pray, fast, and hope that it is possible to achieve good, because from that good love is born. The Holy Spirit will strengthen that love in you, and you will be able to call God your Father. Through this exalted love, you will truly come to love all people and, through God, you will regard them as brothers and sisters. Thank you.2840
November 2, 2008 Dear children, today I call you to a complete union with God. Your body is on earth, but I ask that your souls, as often as possible, be near to God. You will achieve this through prayer, prayer with an open heart. In that way you will thank God for the immeasurable goodness which He gives to you through me and, with a sincere heart, you will accept the obligation to treat the souls whom you meet with equal goodness. Thank you, my children.2882
Today I rejoice with all my angels. The first part of my program has been achieved.3830
Pray, pray, pray! It is only with prayer that you will be able to avoid Ivans error. He should not have written. And after that he had to clearly acknowledge it so as not to plant any doubts.1422
The sign will come; you must not worry about it. The only thing that I would want to tell you is to be converted. Make that known to all my children as quickly as possible. No pain, no suffering is too great for me in order to save you. I will pray to my Son not to punish the world; but I beseech you, be converted. You cannot imagine what is going to happen or what the Eternal Father will send to earth. That is why you must be converted! Renounce everything. Do penance. Express my acknowledgement to all my children who have prayed and fasted. I carry all this to my Divine Son in order to obtain an alleviation of His justice against the sins of mankind. I thank the people who have prayed and fasted. Persevere and help me to convert the world.1034
For next week, I invite you to say these words: I love God in everything. With love, one obtains everything. You can receive many things, even the most impossible. The Lord wishes for all the parishes to surrender to Him, and I, too, in Him. I desire it. Each evening make your examination of conscience, but only to give thanks in acknowledgment for everything that His love offers us at Medjugorje.1410
January 2, 2010 Dear children, today I am calling you with complete trust and love to set out with me because I desire to acquaint you with my Son. Do not be afraid. My children, I am here with you; I am next to you. I am showing you the way to forgive yourselves, to forgive others, and, with sincere repentance of heart, to kneel before the Father. Make everything die in you that hinders you from loving and saving, that you may be with Him and in Him. Decide for a new beginning, a beginning of sincere love of God Himself. Thank you.2910
Ivanka saw her mother in paradise as well as another person who was an acquaintance.494
I questioned the Blessed Virgin on the matter of an Italian, who was very sick, and about another man who acquired cancer. She responded, 780
I wish that you pray throughout your trip, and that you glorify God. There you will be able to meet other young people. Convey the messages which I have given you. Do not hesitate to speak to them about it. Some begin to pray and to fast just as they have been told, but they get tired very quickly, and thus loose the graces which they have acquired.1068
I would like to guide you spiritually, but I would not know how to help you, if you are not open. It suffices for you to think, for example, where you were with your thoughts yesterday during Mass. When you go to Mass, your trip from home to church should be a time of preparation for Mass. You should also receive Holy Communion with an open and pure heart, purity of heart, and openness. Do not leave the church without an appropriate act of thanksgiving. I can help you only if you are accessible to my suggestions; I cannot help you if you are not open. The most important thing in spiritual life is to ask for the gift of the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit comes, then peace will be established. When that occurs, everything changes around you. Things will change.1384
July 31, 1986 Dear children! Hatred gives birth to dissensions and does not regard anyone or anything. I call you always to bring harmony and peace. Especially, dear children, in the place where you live, act with love. Let your only instrument always be love. By love turn everything into good, which Satan desires to destroy and possess. Only in that way shall you be completely mine, and I shall be able to help you. Thank you for having responded to my call.1770
It is up to you to realize that your behavior is not permitted by God, but that you immediately stifle the thought. Do not give in dear children. Wipe away from my face the tears which I shed on seeing you act in this manner. Look around you. Take the time to come to God in the church. Come into your Fathers house. Take the time to meet for family prayer in order to obtain grace from God. Remember your deceased; make them happy by offering the Mass. Do not look with scorn on the poor man who is begging a morsel of bread. Do not send him away from your abundant table. Help him, and God will help you. It could very well happen that the blessing he leaves you as a sign of gratitude will be fulfilled for you. God may listen to him.1822
November 25, 1998 Dear children! Today I call you to prepare yourselves for the coming of Jesus. In a special way, prepare your hearts. May holy confession be the first act of conversion for you, and then, dear children, decide for holiness. May your conversion and decision for holiness begin today and not tomorrow. Little children, I call you all to the way of salvation, and I desire to show you the way to Heaven. That is why, little children, be mine and decide with me for holiness. Little children, accept prayer with seriousness and pray, pray, pray. Thank you for having responded to my call.2116
November 25, 2013 Dear children! Today I call all of you to prayer. Open the doors of your heart profoundly to prayer, little children, to prayer with the heart; and then the Most High will be able to act upon your freedom and conversion will begin. Your faith will become firm so that you will be able to say with all your heart: My God, my all. You will comprehend, little children, that here on earth everything is passing. Thank you for having responded to my call.2476
The hour has come when the demon is authorized to act with all his force and power. The present hour is the hour of Satan. 2592
Pray, fast, and let God act. 2670
August 2, 2008 Dear children, in my coming to you, here among you, the greatness of God is reflected, and the way with God to eternal happiness is opened. Do not feel weak, alone, or abandoned. With faith, prayer, and love climb to the hill of salvation. May the Mass, the most exalted and most powerful act of your prayer, be the center of your spiritual life. Trust and love, my children. Those whom my Son chose and called will help you in this as well. To you and to them especially, I give my motherly blessing. Thank you.2872
January 02, 2014 Dear children, for you to be able to be my apostles and to be able to help all those who are in darkness, to come to know the light of the love of my Son, you must have pure and humble hearts. You cannot help for my Son to be born in, and to reign in, the hearts of those who do not know Him, if He does not reign - if He is not the King - in your heart. I am with you. I am walking with you as a mother. I am knocking on your hearts. They cannot open because they are not humble. I am praying, and you my beloved children also pray, that you may be able to open pure and humble hearts to my Son and to receive the gifts which He has promised you. Then you will be led by the love and strength of my Son. Then, you will be my apostles who everywhere around them spread the fruits of Gods love. My Son will act from within you and through you, because you will be one. My motherly heart yearns for this - for unity of all of my children - through my Son. With great love I bless, and pray for those who are chosen by my Son - for your shepherds. Thank you. At first Our Lady was sad and then decisive.3010
May 02, 2014 Dear children, I, your mother, am with you for the sake of your well-being, for the sake of your needs and for the sake of your personal cognition. The Heavenly Father gave you the freedom to decide on your own and to become cognizant on your own. I desire to help you. I desire to be a mother to you, a teacher of the truth - so that in the simplicity of an open heart, you may become cognizant of the immeasurable purity and light which comes from it and shatters darkness, the light which brings hope. I, my children, understand your pain and suffering. Who could understand you better than a mother? And you, my children? Small is the number of those who understand and follow me. Great is the number of those who are lost - of those who have not yet become cognizant of the truth in my Son. Therefore, my apostles, pray and act. Bring the light and do not lose hope. I am with you. In a special way I am with your shepherds. With a motherly heart I love and protect them, because they lead you to Heaven that was promised to you by my Son. Thank you. 3018
Dear children! On this message, which I give you today through my servant, I desire for you to reflect a long time. My children, great is the love of God. Do not close your eyes, do not close your ears, while I repeat to you: Great is his love! Hear my call and my supplication, which I direct to you. Consecrate your heart and make in it the home of the Lord. May He dwell in it forever. My eyes and my heart will be here, even when I will no longer appear. Act in everything as I ask you and lead you to the Lord. Do not reject from yourself the name of God, that you may not be rejected. Accept my messages that you may be accepted. Decide, my children; it is the time of decision. Be of just and innocent heart that I may lead you to your Father, (for this I am here) in his great love. Thank you for being here!3048
Pray, fast, and allow God to act. 3374
Pray. Fast. Let God act! Pray for the gift of love, for the gift of faith, for the gift of prayer, for the gift of fasting.4196
I beg you, destroy your house made of cardboard, which you have built on desires. Thus I will be able to act for you.4200

April 10, 1986 Dear children! I desire to call you to grow in love. A flower is not able to grow normally without water. So also you, dear children, are not able to grow without Gods blessing. From day to day you need to seek His blessing so you will grow normally and perform all your actions in union with God. Thank you for having responded to my call.1738
February 02, 2014 Dear children, with motherly love I desire to teach you sincerity, because I desire that, in your actions as my apostles, you be exact, resolute, and above all sincere. I desire that, by the grace of God, you be open for a blessing. I desire that by fasting and prayer you obtain from the Heavenly Father the cognition of what is natural and holy - Divine. Filled with cognition, under the shelter of my Son and myself, you will be my apostles who will know how to spread the Word of God to all those who do not know of it; and you will know how to overcome obstacles that will stand in your way. My children, by means of a blessing, Gods grace will descend upon you and you will be able to retain it through fasting, prayer, purification and reconciliation. You will have the efficiency which I seek of you. Pray for your shepherds that the ray of Gods grace may illuminate their ways. Thank you.3012
July 26, 1984 Dear children! Today also I wish to call you to persistent prayer and penance. Especially, let the young people of this parish be more active in their prayers. Thank you for having responded to my call.1548
May 16, 1985 Dear children! I am calling you to a more active prayer and attendance at Holy Mass. I wish your Mass to be an experience of God. I wish especially to say to the young people: Be open to the Holy Spirit because God wishes to draw you to Himself in these days when Satan is at work. Thank you for having responded to my call.1642
May 1, 1986 Dear children! I beseech you to start changing your life in the family. Let the family be a harmonious flower that I wish to give to Jesus. Dear children, let every family be active in prayer for I wish that the fruits in the family be seen one day. Only in that way shall I give you all, like petals, as a gift to Jesus in fulfillment of Gods plans. Thank you for having responded to my call.1744
June 5, 1986 Dear children! Today I am calling on you to decide whether or not you wish to live the messages which I am giving you. I wish you to be active in living and spreading the messages. Especially, dear children, I wish that you all be the reflection of Jesus, which will enlighten this unfaithful world walking in darkness. I wish all of you to be the light for everyone and that you give witness in the light. Dear children, you are not called to darkness, but you are called to light. Therefore, live the light with your own life. Thank you for having responded to my call.1754
May 25, 1996 Dear children! Today I wish to thank you for all your prayers and sacrifices that you, during this month which is consecrated to me, have offered to me. Little children, I also wish that you all become active during this time that through me is connected to Heaven in a special way. Pray in order to understand that you all, through your life and your example, ought to collaborate in the work of salvation. Little children, I wish that all people convert and see me and my Son Jesus in you. I will intercede for you and help you to become the light. In helping others, your soul will also find salvation. Thank you for having responded to my call.2056
February 25, 1997 Dear children! Today I invite you in a special way to open yourselves to God the Creator and to become active. I invite you, little children, to see at this time who needs your spiritual or material help. By your example, little children, you will be the extended hands of God, which humanity is seeking. Only in this way will you understand that you are called to witness and to become joyful carriers of Gods Word and of His love. Thank you for having responded to my call.2074
In December 1982, Jelena Vasilj was just ten years old. She came from a local family in Medjugorje that was very devout. The family had always prayed together and lived an active faith life. Jelena began to receive inner locutions from Our Lady at the end of December 1982. While the six visionaries could see Our Lady in three dimensions, and spoke with her as in a normal conversation, Jelena could only hear Our Ladys voice and saw her in a two dimensional interior way. Several months later, in March of 1983, Jelenas friend Marijana Vasilj (they were friends but not related) began also to receive inner locutions. 3342
At Our Ladys request, a prayer group was founded by Jelena in June 1983. According to her testimony, Our Lady speaks to her and teaches her. The prayer group used to meet in the parish hall after the evening Mass under the guidance of Fr. Tomislav Vlasic, and from time to time, other priests were also with the group. During the meetings, which consisted of simple prayer and singing, Our Lady gave messages to the group primarily through Jelena, teaching them how to pray. This prayer group was active until 1987. Those who had joined the group had to make the commitment that during the following four years they would not make any life decisions.3344
If you want to be stronger against evil, have an active conscience. For that, pray very much in the morning and read a passage from the Gospel. Plant the Divine Word in your heart and live it during the day, in this special way, in trials and in the evening; you will be very strong.3902
If you want to be stronger than evil and grow in goodness, then develop an active conscience.4174
