Since June 24, 1981 the Blessed Virgin Mary has been appearing for 6 visionaries even today. She said that She has come to earth to tell us "God Exists", and to guide each one of us back to her Son Jesus Christ. Our Lady appeared to six young people called Ivanka, Vicka, Marjia, Mirjana, Ivan, and 10 year old Jacob. Now all of them are married and blessed with children living in and around Medjugorje. Vicka, Marjia and Ivan have daily apparitions even today and the other three visionaries have apparition once in a year. As per the visionaries Our Lady has confined 10 secrets regarding the world's chastisement to each one of them. The Blessed Virgin Mother will show a permanent sign that can be seen throughout the world when She ceases Her apparitions.
Our Lady given monthly message through Marija to the world and lead everyone of us step by step back to Jesus. But the main message of Medjugorje is a call to Conversion, conversion back to God. Our Lady gives us five Stones or Weapons, which we can use to overcome the power and influence of evil and sin in our lives. This is the "Message of Medjugorje". Although, the Church is doing investigations and not yet approved these apparitions, this small village is now has Cardinals, Bishops, Religious and people all around the world as pilgrims and many of them witness conversions. So this depends on the individual's faith to believe it.

Mary once told the visionaries, "I will never appear on earth like this again." Already, the Medjugorje apparitions have proved to be unique: they've lasted longer, with more visionaries involved, than any other recorded apparition of Mary in history. Over twenty five years have passed since that June, 1981 afternoon which not only changed the lives of six young villagers, but the lives of millions of people around the world. What will come of all this? What does the future hold for Medjugorje, and for mankind? All in all, only time will tell . . . but according to Our Lady, the best is yet to come.
