The six visionaries had been established from June 25, 1981. Beginning from the left – Mirjana, Vicka, Ivanka, Ivan, Marija, and Jakov in the front.

The Vatican remains cautious over the apparitions. Some of the visionaries continually see the Blessed Virgin on a daily basis. In 2010 the Pope initiated a commission to investigate. Investigations are ongoing. These include investigations of physical and mental health of the visionaries. Also the messages cannot contradict the Faith.


The main message of Our Lady is a cal to:
  • Daily Prayer (Of the Rosary)
  • Fasting on Wednesdays and Fridays
  • Daily Reading of the Bible
  • Monthly Confession
  • Holy Communion
