The Last Daily Meetings to Mirjana, Ivanka and Jakov
THE LAST OF MIRJANA DRAGICEVIC'S DAILY MEETINGS WITH OUR LADY, CHRISTMAS 1982
“My last regular meeting with Our Lady was on Christmas day, the 25th of December 1982. At that time, Our Lady stayed with me for forty-five minutes. For a month, Our Lady had been preparing me for that meeting. She had been explaining everything to me in a motherly way.
She told me that she had completed that for which she needed me. She told me that I was aware enough and that I must comprehend that I must turn back to normal daily life, like other girls of my age. I must continue to live without her motherly counsels and without those conversations with her that I needed so much. She promised me that she would always be with me and that she would help me in the most difficult circumstances of life. For as long as I live with God, she will help me.
She told me that this would be the last of our regular conversations, but that she would leave me a gift, i.e. that for as long as I live, I would see her on my birthday.
This last meeting with Our Lady was very difficult for me. It is impossible to describe with words the pain that I felt in my soul knowing that I would no longer have daily apparitions. It is as when you understand that, recently, you received the most beautiful gift of your life, and that now you are losing it. Our Lady knew of my affliction and pain; and to cheer me up, she prayed with me and encouraged me to sing and praise God with her. I prayed the prayer that I always prayed, when I was alone with her, “Hail Holy Queen”.
I will always remember her words,
"Mirjana, I chose you, and I told you everything that is necessary. I entrusted you with the knowledge of many abominations, which you must carry with dignity. Think of me, and how much I too shed tears because of this. You must always be brave. You quickly understood my messages, and so you must understand that now I must leave. Be brave... !"
The rest of what she told me was for me personally.
PS: The first month after this was really difficult for me. Our Lady had warned me about that too. I fell into deep states of sadness (depression). I avoided everything; I closed myself up in my room, where I always waited for Our Lady. I cried and called out to her. I felt her help and longed for my birthday....
From the 2nd of August 1987, I can hear the voice of Our Lady within me on the 2nd of every month, and sometimes I see her as well, and I pray wit her for those who do not believe.”
THE LAST OF IVANKA IVANKOVIC'S DAILY MEETINGS WITH OUR LADY, MAY 7TH, 1985
On the evening of May 6th, 1985, Ivan, Jakov and Ivanka had their apparition. For Ivanka, the apparition lasted about eight minutes - six minutes longer than for others. During this apparition, Our Lady gave Ivanka the tenth secret, and completed the account about the future of the world. Our Lady told her to await her alone the following day, without the other visionaries.
On the May 7th, 1985, Ivanka had the apparition in her home. She gave Fr. Slavko Barbaric a paper on which she wrote:
“Like every day, Our Lady came and greeted me in the usual way saying “Praised be Jesus!” and I answered her “Always Jesus and Mary!” Never before had I seen the Blessed Virgin Mary as beautiful as this evening. She was so gentle and so beautiful! Today she had the most beautiful dress that I had ever seen in my life. The dress was shining in silver and gold. Her veil and her crown were the same. There were two angels with her. They too were dressed like Our Lady. Both Our Lady and the angels were so beautiful that I cannot express it in words. It has to be experienced. Our Lady asked me if I had any particular wish. I asked her if I could see my earthly mother. Our Lady smiled and nodded her head. All of a sudden, my mother was there. She was smiling. Our Lady told me to stand up. I stood up. My mother hugged me, kissed me, and said: “My child, I am so proud of you!” Mum kissed me and then disappeared.
After this, the Blessed Virgin Mary said this to me:
“My dear child, today is our last meeting. Do not be sad because I will come to you on every anniversary except this one. My child, do not think that you have done something wrong, and that that is why I shall no longer come. No, you have not! The plans, which my Son and I had, you accepted with all your heart and accomplished. Be happy, because I am your mother, who loves you with the whole heart. Ivanka, thank you for having responded to the call of my Son and for having been persevering and always close to Him, and staying as long as He asked this of you. My child, tell your friends that my Son and I are always with them when they seek and call us. That which I told you during these years about the SECRETS, you shall not tell anyone until I tell you. Ivanka, the graces which you and your brothers received, nobody on this earth has received up until now!”
After these words, I asked Our Lady if I could kiss her? She simply nodded her head. I kissed her. I asked for her blessing. She blessed me, smiled and said: “Go in the peace of God!”
She left slowly, and with her, the two angels. The Blessed Virgin Mary was very joyful. She remained with me one hour.”
THE LAST OF JAKOV COLO'S DAILY MEETINGS WITH OUR LADY, SEPTEMBER 12TH, 1998
While on his journey in America, Jakov reported the following text to us from Miami:
“On Friday September 11th during the regular apparition Our Lady told me to prepare myself specially by prayer for tomorrow's apparition because she will confide the 10th secret to me. On Saturday, September 12th, Our Lady came at 11:15 (local time). When she came, she greeted me as always with 'Praised be Jesus'. While she was confiding the 10th secret to me, she was sad.
Then with a gentle smile she said to me:
“Dear child! I am your mother and I love you unconditionally. From today, I will not be appearing to you every day, but only on Christmas, the birthday of my Son. Do not be sad, because as a mother, I will always be with you and like every true mother, I will never leave you. You continue to follow the way of my Son, the way of peace and love, and try to persevere in the mission that I have confided to you. Be an example of a man who has known God and God's love. Let people always see in you an example of how God acts on people and how God acts through them. I bless you with my motherly blessing and I thank you for having responded to my call”.
The apparition ended at 11:45.”
PS: In a short telephone conversation with Fr. Slavko Barbaric, Jakov said that he cried for a long time and that he was very sad.
