Two Medjugorje Apparitions for Christmas
On Christmas day, December 25, 2010, Our Lady appeared to the visionary Marija and delivered this message to the world:
"Dear children! Today, I and my Son desire to give you an abundance of joy and peace so that each of you may be a joyful carrier and witness of peace and joy in the places where you live. Little children, be a blessing and be peace. Thank you for having responded to my call."
On the same day, Jakov Colo, the youngest of the six visionaries, experienced his annual apparition. At the last daily apparition to Jakov Colo in 1998, Our Lady told him that henceforth he would have one apparition a year, on Christmas Day. This year's apparition began on Christmas day in Medjugorje at 2:25 pm and lasted 7 minutes.
After the apparition, Jakov said, "Our Lady spoke to me about the secrets and at the end said: 'Pray, pray, pray.'"
The brief message Jakov received this year was different from most messages of past years, which have tended to be longer.
