The Blessed Virgin Mary has been appearing to six children (now adults), in a small village in Bosnia-Herzegovina called Medjugorje, from June 24, 1981 until the present.
She is only visible (except once) to the six people. She still appears daily to three of the six people, and appears once a year to the remaining three people. In addition she appears once a month to two of the people.
She has given a total of ten secrets to three of the people, and nine to the remaining three. After all six people have all of the ten secrets, she will stop appearing to them daily, and the secrets will begin to happen. Some pertain to the local area and visionaries, and the remaining are for the entire world. The third secret is a beautiful indestructible and not from this world sign for all non believers to see and convert, which will be left on Apparition Hill, the site of her first appearance. The seventh secret has been diminished through the prayers and fasting. The ninth and tenth secrets are chastisements for the entire world.
In Our Lady’s own words,
“I have come to tell the world that God Exists. He is the fullness of life, and to enjoy this fullness and peace, you must return to God.”
