VIEWER OF THE FAMOUS LOOKS GOT DELICIOUS HINTS ABOUT WHAT COULD BE IN HER FIRST 'SECRETS'
Those who believe in apparitions are often fascinated by so-called "mysteries", particularly at well-known sites such as Medjugorje in Bosnia-Herzegovina, which has been authenticated by a Vatican commission. Most recently in a lecture on June 24, 2011 on the occasion of the city's anniversaryand seer Ivan Dragicevic made some interesting comments.
"Many people ask me if Our Lady ever spoke about the return of Jesus." he said. "No. Did Our Lady speak of the end of the world? No. Our Lady did not come for that. Many ask, what does Our Lady say? What do you talk to her about every day? We talk a lot and believe me, if we were 24 hours we would lose a few minutes but one day when the time comes when some things are revealed you will understand why the apparitions are so long and why they are opened every day when we see changes physical events that on the will happen in the world. That's very important to understand. I won't tell the secrets! (laughs) The time ahead is a time of great responsibility."
In 1985 another visionary, Mirjana Dragicevic Soldo,he dropped some rare, revealing, and much more disturbing clues than the secret prophecies he claims Our Lady gave him before the daily apparitions ended in 1982 (after he received his supposed tenth prophecy). The visionary, who was summoned before the Vatican Fact Inquiry Commission, explained in a private interview with her spiritual director, Father Petar Ljubicic, that in the first two mysteries given to her there would be events that come as warnings would . 🇧🇷 , and then a "sign" that would serve "as further confirmation."
In recent years, Mirjana has almost completely stopped speaking about her secrets like the other seers. In fact, he claimed that a supernatural "lock" on them allowed him to live a life without thinking of, or even easily remembering, most of them. She ignores questions about it.
But in 1985, when the alleged revelations were fresh, he said of the first secret: "It will be a gift to the praying people of this world." Other parts of the interview were even more revealing:
Father Ljubicic: How do you assess the current situation worldwide? How would you personally see all of these things?
Mirjana: Never has there been a time like this, never before has God been less honored and respected than now, never before have so few prayed to him; everything seems to be more important than God. That's why he cries so much. The number of unbelievers is increasing. In the pursuit of a better life, even for such people, God is superfluous and expendable. That's why I and the world feel so sorry for them. They have no idea what to expect. If they could only catch a glimpse of these mysteries, they would be converted in time. Of course, God always forgives those who are truly converted.
Father Ljubicic: Perhaps He warned us about other things we need to do besides pray and prepare for this time? Maybe something specific?
Mirjana:Yes, he told me that it takes a lot of prayer before the first secret is revealed. But besides that, it is necessary to make as many sacrifices as possible, to help others as much as possible, to fast, especially now, in the very first secret. she said we areMany Thanksprepare.
Father Ljubicic: Tell me how do you see the situation around you? How do you see the young people around you? I mean your companions that you live and interact with.
Mirjana[then teenager and studying in Sarajevo]: Dad, I wish you knew how I feel some days! There are times when I feel like I'm going insane. If Maria wasn't here, if she hadn't filled me with power, I would certainly have lost my mind... When I see how people believe, especially in Sarajevo, how they use God and his name in their oaths, how ruthless they are how they curse god... These bastards have no idea what awaits them in the near future. Then when I watch them, I feel sorry for them. I feel sorry for them and pray and cry and pray and pray and pray for them. I ask Mary to enlighten your mind because as Jesus said: They really don't know what they are doing... And yet the first two mysteries are not so severe and hard. My point is yes they are serious but not as serious as the others.
Father Ljubicic: Are [the secrets] perhaps of a remarkable and excellent nature, or of a more spiritual nature?
Father Ljubicic: Distinguishable?
Mirjana:yes, different It will be visible. We need to shake up the world a little. It will make the world stop and think.
Father Ljubicic: Something like a disaster?
Mirjana:No, it won't be that big. That comes later. It's going to be something that gives the world something to seriously think about, allows it to see that it really was here, and to see and realize that God is there, that He exists.
Father Ljubicic: After that, will there be someone who says, "This is some kind of natural phenomenon" or something?
Mirjana:Perhaps some convinced unbelievers will say something like that after the first and second secrets.
Father Ljubicic: I'm just curious if anyone can say, "I have a feeling something's going to happen soon" or something like that.
Mirjana:Well, you can see that some pretty strange things are going on in the world. People are unhappy, dissatisfied, greed reigns everywhere, almost no one admits that they are already tired of something. But none of this gives a hint of the secret. This secret is on its own. The mystery will speak volumes for itself and requires no clues or advanced characters.
Father Ljubicic: Again, regarding the first secret, who will experience it, see it, and be persuaded so that later he can say, "Verily what happened or is happening is the manifestation of the mystery"? Who will be able to see all this?
Mirjana:All who will be here or in the place(s) where the mystery unfolds.
Father Ljubicic: Let me assume it's a specific place. All who want to see and experience this sign or whatever the mystery may be, do they have to come to this special place to see and experience it?
Mirjana:Well, dad, surely no one wants to see disasters, sorrows and misfortunes. I don't think that sort of thing appeals to people. Why should people see something like this? It is one thing to go and see a sign and quite another to go and see suffering or disaster. For example, who would go to Italy to see a dam burst? Who is so keen? I don't think anyone will, and neither will this mystery. Whatever the secret, it's clear it's going to be something that everyone, everywhere, will find out in an instant.
Father Ljubicic: Tell me, if the mystery is about a place and not a condition or a situation, wouldn't it be nice to see as many people as possible, have as many eyewitnesses as possible, even if it's nothing nice or beautiful that to see? in? 🇧🇷
Mirjana:Dad, it's going to be obvious... It's going to be something that people from afar will hear.
Father Ljubicic: Do you know about the ten secrets each of you will be given that you and Ivanka [Ivankovic] already have [now also a third one named Jakov Colo] that will be exactly the same? I mean, what secrets will be exactly the same for you, Ivanka, and the others?
Mirjana:No, I do not know.
Father Ljubicic: Someone said that only three of the secrets each of you received are identical while all the others are different.
Mirjana:That for the sign is identical I'm sure because there won't be six different signs.
Father Ljubicic: Not in the same place.
Mirjana:The sign is the same sign. Personally, I never discussed the secrets with [the others]. As the secrets were entrusted to me, they were eventually entrusted to others.
Father Ljubicic: Until now I have never spoken to you about the permanence of the mark. Each of you insists that it will be indestructible, permanent and very large. Consequently, you will be able to grasp it as something tangible.
Mirjana:Yes, the shield will be indestructible and permanent. Of course, it will be clear to everyone that this is not something built and erected. No one will be able to say that someone brought it from Medjugorje and brought it to that specific place.
Father Ljubicic: The manifestation of the sign, will it be day or night? If I ask that, am I violating the secret?
Mirjana:Ah, that's a secret. I can't answer because it touches on... the secret already has a date and time.
Father Ljubicic: Did the secret state a minute and a second?
Mirjana:I know the exact day and time.
Father Ljubicic: Do you think there could be some people, some souls who might "feel" something without anyone knowing or expecting that something is going to happen and therefore will come in large numbers?
Mirjana:I do not know. But I had the opportunity to ask Our Lady something about this. I know there will be spiritual conversions during the manifestation of the Mystery.
Father Ljubicic: There will be conversions.
Mirjana:Yes, there will be conversions.
Father Ljubicic: Do you think that [of those who shall be converted] the majority shall be those who distrusted, those who doubted, those who did not believe?...
Mirjana:There will be all kinds: those who only suspected, those who didn't believe in anything, and others.
Father Ljubicic: Do you think there will still be those who remain hardened despite explicit, tangible and visible signs and warnings?
Father Ljubicic: There will be?
Mirjana:Yes, there will be.
Father Ljubicic: Yes, of course, as always. Even today, many see the obvious works of God but reject them simply because they are too stubborn, just like the Pharisees.
Mirjana:These are the ones who have closed their souls to God.
Father Ljubicic: Let me refer you to Our Lady's last message. It seems Our Lady is drawing attention to our greatest enemy, Satan. It seems that he is increasing his attacks, that he is trying to create confusion and confuse the whole situation.
Mirjana:He is responsible for the unbelievers. Satan. So he said that the house should be blessed with holy water on Saturdays. He is the one who turns people into unbelievers. Who else?
Father Ljubicic: Do you think ungodliness is increasing or decreasing today?
Mirjana:Dad it's increasing. It takes a miracle for wickedness to subside.
In a later interview with the same priest, Mirjana elaborated on the other mysteries, urging especially young people to convert. Maria cried especially for her, he explained. "Now I know things that are not particularly pleasant," said the seer, whose daily apparitions ceased in 1982 when she received the tenth secret, the first of six she received. "I think if everyone knew the same things, each of these people would be deeply 'shocked' and would see our world in a completely different light. Of course, my greatest advice to everyone is to pray for all unbelievers. You see, Mary spends most of her time talking about this very thing. We must not forget the elderly and sick either. They are ours too. You have sacrificed your whole life. Many of them lived their whole lives for God and in prayer. Your final years should not be sad and miserable. I can't do much more, I have a hard time [doing that]. You see, a lot is connected with secrets. If people saw the first secret like I was shown, surely everyone would be shocked enough to look at themselves and everything around them in a new and different way."
Father Ljubicic: Will the manifestation of this mystery be temporary or will it be something long lasting?
Mirjana:It will take a while.
Father Ljubicic: Maus?
Father Ljubicic: Will its effect be permanent and permanent, or will it be temporary and fleeting?
Mirjana:How to explain that without violating secrecy? Let me just say, it's not going to be good, it's not going to be pretty.
Father Ljubicic: After that, if someone came here and knew that this or that happened, would that person be able to see anything, any evidence that something really happened here?
Mirjana:And and and.
Father Ljubicic: Will it be visible?
Father Ljubicic: This whole situation: it seems that she wants to prepare us and "clothe" us with the holiness, love and perfection of God so that we can greet the Lord when he comes. Is there anything that points to something like this?
Mirjana:Like every mother, she worries about her children. She wants us to go well prepared to meet God the Father. She doesn't want us to cry and regret when it's too late. God said he forgives anytime as long as the soul sincerely repents. All she asks, all she hopes, is that we will all repent so that we can be forgiven. What follows are the mysteries that areFor realdisgusting. I would be happy if everyone would finally understand that. I can't tell [the secrets], but when they start to come true it will be too late.
Father Ljubicic: Will the gap between the first and second secrets be long?
Mirjana:This varies by secret. What I mean is that, for example, the time between the first and second secret is of a certain duration, between the second and third of different duration. For example, and I emphasize: the first secret can happen today, for example, the second already tomorrow.
Father Ljubicic: Tell me, what do you think of people who are particularly inspired by God, I mean people who have real mystical experiences, mysterious experiences? I mean the ones that God is showing and telling in various ways, things that are going to happen in the future. Can you make a connection between them and the current world situation?
Mirjana:I think they were chosen by Maria as well, just like us. All of us weren't chosen because we're somehow better than others, not at all. I just want to say that they have all been chosen to help people, to bring people's attention [to God], to tell people [about Him and everything that is going to happen], to touch the people around them in some way teach you to talk to them. and tell them what Mary said. Do and say the same things she tells us. Maybe people will listen to her. The main task for all of us [seers] is to spread faith in God.
