Seemingly, Mirjana was told by Our Lady at the end of receiving her annual apparition on March 18.

No doubt, as usual, this announcement will only feed speculation as to what may be coming down the line.

Only needs for Ivan to announce his daily apparitions have stopped and he has received the 10th secret to promote further speculation.

Methinks there is a more simpler explanation, pressure exerted from authorities, and the doubt raised by the commission report as to the validity of the ongoing apparitions. It wasn’t long ago that the ‘authorities’ requested people to stop distributing film footage of Mirjana’s apparitions, not that anyone really took any notice, but Sr Emmanuel kept reminding people of the request via her newsletters.

Anyway, who needs to promote doom and gloom “secrets” to encourage people to turn back to God when the coronavirus pandemic may be far more effective in bringing people to their knees and repentance.

Medjugorje: the apparitions of the 2nd of the month to the visionary Mirjana are over
From
Simona Amabene -
03/18/2020 LAST UPDATE 16:00

Our Lady on March 18, 2020 in Medjugorje, announced to the visionary Mirjana that the apparition of the 2nd of each month has ended.

Medjugorje Mirjana

The news began to circulate after 14:30 today, at the end of the extraordinary apparition to Mirjana, which took place exceptionally in her home, given the absence of pilgrims due to the blockade of the borders due to the Coronavirus.

I verified the truthfulness of the information by reaching some lay guides from the parish of St. James in Medjugorje over the phone. They confirmed to me that this is an official news.

Our Lady revealed to the visionary Mirjana that from now on she will appear to her only once a year, on March 18th. An official press release is expected in the next few hours. We knew that sooner or later this had to happen but we hoped as late as possible. Now is the time for prayer!

Another factor to consider is the spread of the coronavirus. Pilgrims were alway reaching out to Mirjana as she made her way to the Blue Cross (or the Green Tent in earlier days) wanting to touch her, in some way or another. Even if she held the apparition in her home there would be pilgrims waiting outside. The small street also houses the homes of Ivan and Jakov, and would they want pilgrims hanging around with the threat of spreading the coronavirus? I don’t think so. They, like Mirjana, have families to consider as well.

So maybe we can say that Our Lady has forseen this problem and has withdrawn from appearing to Mirjana on a monthly basis to protect the visionaries, their families, and any pilgrims that may still want to be present at an apparition.

After Mirjana received her 10th secret, she was reduced to having just one apparition per year. She reacted poorly to the loss of the daily apparitions, and Our Lady told her that she would then also receive a monthly apparition.

Mirjana announced last week that Our Lady will no longer appear to her on the 2nd of every month. Isn't it interesting that these apparitions ceased at the same time the public celebration of Masses were being canceled in many places in the world because of the virus.

Mirjana’s mission is to pray for unbelievers, or, as Our Lady calls them, “those who have not yet come to know God’s love.”

Do you find it significant that we are now denied love by the absence of our Heavenly Mother's visits, and denied love in the loss of the Eucharist - the very kiss of Christ?

Is the message about a loss of messages a message in itself?

No, because that would be a contradiction of Love itself. We may feel an absence or loss as the disciples did when Jesus ascended to Heaven but God’s love, Love itself, is always with us. He can never deny his love.

As you seek the love of God, so others seek his love in you.

I invite you to be apostles of love and goodness. In this world of unrest give witness to God and God's love, and God will bless you and give you what you seek from Him.

I would say:
So far for the time of grace.
or Should I ask:
So far for the time of grace?

I stand corrected. After reading about something else, I discovered that these have been going on for 33 years.

I apologize for causing any confusion.

With quarantines and stay-at-home orders becoming the norm almost everywhere, the meaning of the cessation of Mirjana's monthly message becomes clearer.

In these lock downs, we have become "shut-ins", gathered together in our homes in a dark vigil. Just as Mirjana has been denied that which she needs to feed her faith, we too have been denied our Church, our priests, our sacraments, and our Christ. Are we not unlike another group from two thousand years ago, huddled in an Upper Room whose Christ had also been taken away from them? Do we not share their anxiety and uncertainty? Do we not share their question as to what has befallen us?

It is unbelievable to watch Pope Francis, standing alone in St. Peter’s Square - alone mind you in a world of over a billion Catholics - reading the sad eulogy of our times heralded by this 'Great Storm' that has descended upon us:
"The storm exposes our vulnerability and uncovers those false and superfluous certainties around which we have constructed our daily schedules, our projects, our habits and priorities. It shows us how we have allowed to become dull and feeble the very things that nourish, sustain and strengthen our lives and our communities." [Urbi et Orbi Blessing, St. Peter’s Square, Rome; March 27th. 2020]

Mirjana also has now become a "shut-in" with the rest of us. She will not again receive her spiritual nourishment until March 18, 2021 - a year from now. The inference is clear. Something's up. The time of Mary's Triumph certainly draws nearer. Surely, the purpose of the Great Storm that is now covering the earth is to assist in bringing about the final Triumph of that Immaculate Heart.

Mary's final triumph is the ray of light that shines through into the darkness of the private cenacles we now find ourselves in. Our hope in Her final triumph in the name of Her Son must now provide us with sustenance and strength as the powers of Hell spread across the face of the earth.

It is Mary who is "our life, our sweetness, and our hope" in this vale of tears. And it is through Her plan that we must find peace in the midst of this chaos and darkness.
