At this moment, according to Our Lady, we are living in a time of grace. After this will come the time of the secrets, and the time of the triumph. God-willing, you will hear from me then. Of course, there's no guarantee that I will be alive when the secrets are revealed.... Then Mirjana went on to tell of a time when she was flying on a trip to the U.S. with her husband and friends. As they were a little nervous about flying, one friend said that there was no need to worry because Mirjana was with them and since she had the secrets, they wouldn't die. She informed them that she has the secrets written, which means she doesn't have to be alive when they are revealed. She said that when the time comes, those who need to read the parchment upon which is written the secrets will be able to.
Another paragraph on the top of page 328
It's possible you're reading this book after the secrets have been revealed, but if not-if the events foretold by Our Lady have yet to take place and the permanent sign has yet to appear - then I urge you not to wait. Abandon yourselves to God today.
Another example of Mirjana moving the goalposts…
Initially Mirjana claimed she would reveal the “secrets”, one by one, to a priest of her choice, Fr Petar, and that the “secrets” had been presented to her on a piece of parchment, not of this world, and could not be read by anyone except by the priest she had chosen, and only one secret at a time when they were due to be disclosed. Fr Petar would then announce this to the world some days before the event occurred.
No we learn that Mirjana may be dead and gone, (presumably also Fr Petar), and “those who read the parchment upon which is written the secrets will be able to do so.” Will another visionary be assigned to announce the secrets, and if not, then who?
Not forgetting that Mirjana has also said she would be prepared to reveal the secrets to the Pope if he asked her.
The goalposts were first moved when Mirjana later amplified the message about “the last apparitions” she gave to Fr Tomislav Vlasic (who also passed it on to the Pope at the time).
But the classic move was when she announced that Our Lady had told her she would no longer appear to her on a regular basis, except for once a year for the rest of her life. As Mirjana explains, a woman is allowed to change her mind, and sometime after that she starts seeing Our Lady on a regular basis again, every month with a “message for the world” (as Sr Emmanuel likes to put it), just a week after Our Lady has given Marija her monthly “message for the world”.
Over the years, observers and even the Church, were prepared to wait and see if Mirjana delivered on her word about being chosen to announce the “secrets”. Now, it seems she has come up with a get-out scenario saying that she may not be alive to announce the “secrets”, meaning no one can point the finger and doubt her claim. It’s a variation on the claim that “a woman is allowed to change her mind”.
Or, as I prefer to see it, just another example of moving the goalsposts.
