I have read that no one outside of the Popes have read all three secrets and the revealing of the third has been watered down. The u-tube says she’s
been around since 88 or so. So none of the 10 prophecies have been revealed? So how is it that she is a prophet?
Thanks for the questions and my apologies for the short reply earlier - I was at work.
To give you a brief run down on Medjugorje, Mary started appearing there in 1981, while what was back then Yugoslavia was very much still a communist
country. One of the early prophecies she made at Medjugorje was the request for everyone in the parish to start praying and fasting to stop the war.
Way back then nobody knew what on earth she was talking about. I visited in 1993 and the local parish priest, father Jozo (? I think that was his
name) recounted this story to us pilgrims. We were there during some of the worst fighting of the war and the people of the village only knew too well
what she had meant when she asked that.
The stunning thing about the village as we discovered is that even though the war had made several attempts to overrun it, including a day when I was
there (yes, I was among the bombing) they could never get the place. They were shelling the village and I can remember being in church as they were
going off, yet feeling completely safe - weird huh. No major damage was caused and we were told that this was the closest the fighting had got yet.
The Serbs even tried to bomb the village by plane but got frustrated because it kept disappearing under low cloud so they could not find it. One day
they dropped several bombs (cannot remember the exact number) and not a single one detonated. In fact, in a somewhat morbidly amsusing twist, the
only fatalities that day were a cow and a chicken that the unexploded bomb landed on. I have heard all of these stores first hand from the villagers
themselves who had complete belief in the fact that God was protecting their village, although there were a couple of times in the war when the
villagers left because of the fear that the war would overrun it.
As far as the word prophecy goes, it can mean either to predict the future, or just speak God's word. See below for a definition from
[prof-uh-sahy] Show IPA verb, proph·e·sied, proph·e·sy·ing.
verb (used with object)
to foretell or predict.
to indicate beforehand.
to declare or foretell by or as if by divine inspiration.
to utter in prophecy or as a prophet.
verb (used without object)
to make predictions.
to make inspired declarations of what is to come.
to speak as a mediator between God and humankind or in God's stead.
Archaic. to teach religious subjects.
As for the ten secrets, the story has always gone that once all of the visionaries had received them, they would start to occur and would be revealed
according to the divine time plan that Mirjana has on the parchment, hence the title and subject of this thread - the parchment itself. To date, not
all of the visionaries have been told all of the secrets, hence why nothing has happened, but it will soon(ish) as Mary has given Mirjana the
responsibility of revealing the secrets, and she is older than me (I am nearly 40 now) so we can assume that everything will come to pass in the next
say 40 (ish) years.
There is another site called Garabandal that also has secrets that one of the visionaries are supposed to tell the world. This visionary is a lot
older, so this date may be a lot closer that we think.
As for the third secret of Fatima, you might be interested on my thread here about it.
While there is no official confirmation on the version of the secret I have presented in the thread, it does make absolute sense to someone who has
been studying the events for a long time now.
