AFTER................80
On returning to the village after the apparition, Marija sees the Virgin again, in tears, near a cross with rainbow colors: 34
After the usual questions on the subject of the ill, the Gospa responded, 142
After many people had touched her, a black stain appeared on her dress. Marija cried. Marinko invited the people who were present to go to confession. 192
Vickas diary then reports the apparition on August 25. A little after Our Lady prayed for peace, a large inscription appeared on top of Krizevac. The word MIR was seen by the pastor and many persons from the village. The visionaries affirmed that the Blessed Virgin promised that there would still be many other signs as forerunners before the great sign in Medjugorje and in other parts of the world. 220
Ivans diary: The students in the seminary prayed the rosary after they had gone to confession. The Virgin came near the image of Jesus and said: There is your Father, my angel. Go in the peace of God, my angels.350
Did you go to Heaven before or after death? 412
After many people saw the cross on Mt. Krizevac transform itself into a light, and then into a silhouette of Our Lady, She said, 448
Three girls from Citluk are returning home after Mass and suddenly see a great light from which fifteen silhouettes, dressed in Franciscan frocks, are seen. They go down on their knees, and begin to pray and cry. The Blessed Virgin was asked about this and said:452
After twenty minutes, the Gospa disappears, and before us, Hell appears. Later she tells us: 528
We were in Fr. Jozos room. The Gospa did not come. She appeared to us in the church after the prayers of seven Our Fathers, Hail Marys, and Glory Bes. We asked her why she had not appeared. She answered that She had not appeared because someone had installed something there. 552
I would like for all of you to become priests and religious, but only if you desire it. You are free. It is up to you to choose. If you are experiencing difficulties, or if you need something, come to me. If you do not have the strength to fast on bread and water, you can give up a number of things. It would be a good thing to give up television, because after seeing some programs, you are distracted and unable to pray. You can give up alcohol, cigarettes, and other pleasures. You yourselves know what you have to do.610
The Blessed Virgin did not respond to our questions. She sang, Jesus Christ, in Your Name. After the first verse, she said, 636
After the prayer, She began Queen of the Holy Rosary, and She departed. 638
After having had a vision of Jesus, 650
After the prayers, the songs, and the questions, Our Lady reprimanded two visionaries because of their behavior, and recommended to them not to behave in this manner again. In case of observation, the other visionaries did not understand what Our Lady told those she reprimanded, and observed only her expression and guessed what it was all about. Those whom She reprimanded say that at that moment, She was gentle and attentive in respect for them.674
After her departure, the children see the Cross, the heart, and the sun, signs which they perceive from time to time.680
Vicka: Jakov and I were in the sacristy. When we began to pray the Our Father, the Gospa arrived. It was five minutes after six. We questioned her on the matter of a person who was sick emotionally. 708
After the attempt on the life of John Paul II: 822
We go to Heaven in full conscience: that which we have now. At the moment of death, we are conscious of the separation of the body and the soul. It is false to teach people that we are re-born many times and that we pass to different bodies. One is born only once. The body, drawn from the earth, decomposes after death. It never comes back to life again. Man receives a transfigured body. Whoever has done very much evil during his life can go straight to Heaven if he confesses, is sorry for what he has done, and received Communion at the end of his life.866
To Mirjana after she had received the tenth secret, 952
After Christmas, I am no longer appearing to her for the present. 970
Fr. Tomislav receives from the four visionaries present (Ivan, Jakov, Marija and Vicka), the following information: Marija has received 7 secrets, Vicka 8, Jakov, Ivanka and Ivan 9, and Mirjana 10. We do not know how long the apparitions will last, or why she no longer appears to Mirjana after Christmas. The Gospa invites us constantly to prayer, to fasting, to conversion. She confirms her promises. 972
There are many Christians who are no longer faithful, because they do not pray anymore. Have them begin again to recite each day, at least seven Our Fathers, seven Hail Marys, seven Glory Bes, and the Creed. Above all, abstain from certain television programs. They represent a great peril for your families. After you have seen them, you cannot pray any more. Give up likewise alcohol, cigarettes, and pleasure of this kind.1130
After these words, the Blessed Virgin began to cry. 1284
So many people, after they have begun here to pray, to be converted, to fast, and do penance, quickly forget when they return home, and return to their bad habits.1302
Our Lady disappeared into Heaven, still crying, after having blessed everyone with a crucifix.1344
When you pray, you must feel more. Prayer is a conversation with God. To pray means to listen to God. Prayer is useful for you because after prayer everything is clear. Prayer makes one know happiness. Prayer can teach you how to cry. Prayer can teach you how to blossom. Prayer is not a joke. Prayer is a dialogue with God.1376
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
After having prayed for a long time and having listened to Ivan who recommended the persons present, Our Lady concluded with, 1466
After having blessed them, Our Lady left in the sign of the radiant Cross while saying: 1470
We prayed with her for the weak, the unfortunate, and the forsaken. After the prayer, She blessed us. Then She showed me, as in a film, the realization of the first secret. The earth was desolate. It is the upheaval of a region of the world. She was precise. I cried. Why so soon?, I asked. 1488
August 14, 1984 (Tuesday) This apparition was unexpected. Ivan was praying at home. After that he started to get ready to go to church for the evening services. By surprise Our Lady appeared to him and told him to relate to the people, I would like the people to pray along with me these days. And to pray as much as possible! And to fast strictly on Wednesdays and Fridays, and every day to pray at least one Rosary: the joyful, sorrowful and glorious mysteries. Our Lady asked that we accept this message with a firm will. She especially requested this of the parishioners and the faithful of the surrounding places.1554
December 18, 1986 Dear children! Once again I desire to call you to prayer. When you pray, you are much more beautiful, like flowers, which after the snow, show all their beauty, and all their colors become indescribable. So also you, dear children, after prayer show before God all so much more what is beautiful and loved by Him. Therefore, dear children, pray and open your inner self to the Lord so that He makes of you a harmonious and beautiful flower for Paradise. Thank you for having responded to my call.1810

June 24, 1987 - The prelude to the sixth anniversary of the apparitions: Marija invited the pilgrims to climb Krizevac at 11:30pm at night. A crowd of thousands of people climbed the rocky foot path without accident. After reciting the Rosary, toward midnight Marija confided to those who surrounded her: The Blessed Virgin was joyful. First of all, she prayed over all of us. We asked her to bless us. She did. Then She gave us, in substance, this message: 1836
May 25, 1990 Dear children! I invite you to decide with seriousness to live this novena. Consecrate the time to prayer and to sacrifice. I am with you, and I desire to help you to grow in renunciation and mortification, so that you may be able to understand the beauty of the life of people who go on giving themselves to me in a special way. Dear children, God blesses you day after day and desires a change in your life. Therefore, pray that you may have the strength to change your life. Thank you for having responded to my call.1912
November 25, 1990 Dear children! Today I invite you to do works of mercy with love and out of love for me and for your and my brothers and sisters. Dear children, all that you do for others, do it with great joy and humility for God. I am with you, and day after day I offer your sacrifices and prayers to God for the salvation of the world. Thank you for having responded to my call.1924
June 25, 1992 Dear children! Today I am happy, even if in my heart there is still a little sadness for all those who have started on this path and then have left it. My presence here is to take you on a new path, the path to salvation. This is why I call you, day after day, to conversion. But if you do not pray, you cannot say that you are on the way to being converted. I pray for you, and I intercede to God for peace, first peace in your hearts and also peace around you, so that God may be your peace. Thank you for having responded to my call.1962
Is it, after all, that I bore you? Everything passes exactly according to Gods plan. Have patience; persevere in prayer and in penance. Everything happens in its own time.2598
I do not have the right to impose on anyone what they should do. You have reason and a will. You should, after having prayed, reflect and decide.2618
After having repeated a song three times: 2728
Many Christians do not ever enter into prayer. They arrive at the beginning, but they remain there. (If you enter into prayer after you have been relieved of all your concerns, remorse, analysis), Then you will be able to ask God to inspire your plans from within. You will feel what God wants, (inside of you, yourself and your group), and then ask for the blessing.2740
A month later the group, frustrated in its prayer, asks, But how is it that this girl (in crisis) does not change? Answer, after a long moment of prayer, 2764
June 2, 2006 Mirjana, Our Lady blessed all present and all religious articles that we brought for blessing. With a serious expression on her face, she emphasized once again the priestly blessing. With pain and love she said: Remember my children; that is my Son blessing you. Do not accept this so lightly. After that Our Lady talked about some things that are supposed to happen, and She said, There is no path without my Son. Do not think that you will have peace and joy if He is not in first place. Our Lady was not sad or joyful; I would say that she was more concerned with a look of care on her face.2810
April 2, 2010 Dear children, today I bless you in a special way, and I pray for you to return to the right way to my Son, your Savior, your Redeemer, to Him who gave you eternal life. Reflect on everything human, on everything that does not permit you to set out after my Son, on what is temporary, imperfect and limited, and then think of my Son, of His Divine infiniteness. By your surrender and prayer ennoble your body and perfect your soul. Be ready, my children. Thank you.2914
June 02, 2013 Dear children, In this restless time, anew I am calling you to set out after my Son - to follow Him. I know of the pain, suffering and difficulties, but in my Son you will find rest; in Him you will find peace and salvation. My children, do not forget that my Son redeemed you by His Cross and enabled you, anew, to be children of God; to be able to, anew, call the Heavenly Father: Father. To be worthy of the Father, love and forgive, because your Father is love and forgiveness. Pray and fast, because that is the way to your purification, it is the way of coming to know and becoming cognizant of the Heavenly Father. When you become cognizant of the Father, you will comprehend that He is all you need. I, as a mother, desire my children to be in a community of one single people where the Word of God is listened to and carried out.* Therefore, my children, set out after my Son. Be one with Him. Be Gods children. Love your shepherds as my Son loved them when He called them to serve you. Thank you. *Our Lady said this resolutely and with emphasis.2994

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
Fr. Tomislav notes in the Parish Chronicle the internal locutions which have been received by Jelena after December 15, 1982. Our Ladys message: 3378
To Jelena, concerning Anita, to whom the Blessed Virgin appeared after Good Friday and who only seldom gets together with Jelena and Marijana, because of her many obligations, 3444
Why do you not put your trust in me? I know that you have been praying for a long time, but really, surrender yourself. Abandon your concerns to Jesus. Listen to what He says in the Gospel: And who among you, through his anxiety, is able to add a single cubit, to the length of his life? (Mt. 6:27). Pray also, in the evening when you have finished your day. Sit down in your room, and say to Jesus, Thank you. If in the evening you fall asleep in peace, and in prayer, in the morning you will wake up thinking of Jesus. You will then be able to pray for peace, but if you fall asleep in distraction, the day after will be misty, and you will forget even to pray that day.3514
Do not go to confession through habit, to remain the same after it. No, it is not good. Confession should give an impulse to your faith. It should stimulate you and bring you closer to Jesus. If confession does not mean anything for you, really, you will be converted with great difficulty.3534
You must redouble your efforts. Day after day, increase your fervor. 3556
Jelena, We followed this message during the Novena, praying before Mass and asking the faithful to respond, O come Holy Spirit. After Communion, we sang the hymn to the Holy Spirit, and then we stopped doing it. In January, 1983, Jelena said that the Blessed Virgin requested that these prayers be resumed. We should not have stopped them. The prayers to the Holy Spirit should always accompany the Mass.3680
When you pray, seek the advantage of prayer. Prayer is a conversation with God. To pray means to listen to the Lord. Prayer is for me a service, because after it all things become clear. Prayer leads to knowing happiness.3906
To Jelena, after inquiring about August 5, 1984, if they would be celebrating her two thousandth birthday, 3950
After Easter, Our Lady does not speak to Jelena or Marijana every day, but on Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. 3992
You all know the flowers. A flower must blossom, and each part of the flower is very important. But there is a moment when the flower must wilt so that the seed can ripen, and after, when the seed is ripe, other flowers will come.4046
Message to the prayer group which had received many messages during Lent and was surprised not to receive any more after Easter,4136
During these days I wish that you consider this idea: After so long and so much time, I have not met Jesus, my friend. After so long and so much time, I have not encountered my Mother Mary. In these days, I want to encounter them.4156
During these days I wish that you consider this idea: After so long and so much time, I have not met Jesus, my friend. After so long and so much time, I have not encountered my Mother Mary. In these days, I want to encounter them.4156
To a prayer group, after an hour of prayer, in which their prayer of petition had prevailed, 4176
To Jelena, for her prayer group, after prayer and fasting, 4180
After this, contemplate how Jesus sent us the Holy Spirit. 4450
