AFTER.................61
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: 144
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.194
Vicka's diary then reports the apparition on August 25th. 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.222
Ivan's 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."354
Did you go to Heaven before or after death? "I went to Heaven before death."416
After many people saw the cross on Mt. Krizevac transform itself into a light, and then into a silhouette of Our Lady, she said:452
Three girls from Citluk are returning home after Mass and suddenly see a great light from which fifteen silhouettes, dressed in Franciscan frock, are seen. They go down on their knees, and begin to pray and cry. The Blessed Virgin was asked about this and said:456
After twenty minutes, the Gospa disappears, and before us, Hell appears. Later she tells us:530
We were in Fr. Jozo's room. The Gospa did not come. She appeared to us in the church after the prayers of 7 Our Father's, Hail Mary's, and Glory Be's. We asked her why she had not appeared. She answered that she had not appeared because someone had installed something there.556
"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."614
The Blessed Virgin did not respond to our questions. She sang, Jesus Christ, in Your Name. After the first verse, she said:640
After the prayer, she began, Queen of the Holy Rosary, and she departed. 644
After having had a vision of Jesus: 656
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.678
After her departure, the children see the Cross, the heart and the sun, signs which they perceive from time to time.684
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:710
After the attempt on the life of John Paul II: 824
"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."870
To Mirjana after she had received the tenth secret: 958
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, nor why she no longer appears to Mirjana after Christmas. The Gospa invites us constantly to prayer, to fasting, to conversion. She confirms her promises.980
"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, 7 Our Father's, 7 Hail Mary's, 7 Glory Be's, 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."1138
After these words, the Blessed Virgin began to cry. 1290
"So many people, after they have begun here to pray, to be converted, to fast, and do penitence, quickly forget when they return home, and return to their bad habits."1310
Our Lady disappeared into Heaven, still crying, after having blessed everyone with a crucifix.1352
"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 how to blossom. Prayer is not a joke. Prayer is a dialogue with God."1384
"Pray, pray, pray! It is only with prayer that you will be able to avoid Ivan's error. He should not have written. And after that had to clearly acknowledge it, so as not to plant any doubts."1430
After having prayed for a long time and listened to Ivan who recommended the persons present, Our Lady concluded with:1478
After having blessed them, Our Lady left in the sign of the radiant Cross while saying:1482
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.1500
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.1572
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 are beloved 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."1830

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:1858
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, that you may be able to understand the beauty of the life of people who go on giving themselves to me in special way. Dear children, God blesses you day after day and desires a change of your life. Therefore, pray that you may have the strength to change your life. Thank you for having responded to my call."1944
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 towards 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."1956
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."1994
June 2, 2006 Our Lady appeared to Mirjana this 2nd of the month and here is what Mirjana shared with us: 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 the 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.2666
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 transience, imperfection and limitation, 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."2732
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 God's 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.2806
