At the last daily apparition to Jakov Colo on September 12th, 1998, Our Lady told him that henceforth he would have one apparition a year, every December 25th, on Christmas Day. This is also how it was this year. The apparition began at 2:20 pm and lasted 6 minutes. Our Lady came with little Jesus in her arms. Through Jakov, Our Lady gave the following message:

Dear children, today with my Son in my arms, I desire to call all of you to pray to the little Jesus for the healing of your heart. Children, often in your hearts sin rules which destroys your life and you can not feel God's presence. That is why, on this day of grace, when grace is spreading throughout the whole world, surrender your life and your heart to the Lord, so that the Lord may heal them with His grace. Only with pure hearts will you be able to experience the birth of Jesus anew in you, and the light of His birth will illuminate your life. I bless you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.

If Jesus knew even before His coming among us what He would experience from all of us, and yet He came, shouldn't we also follow the same path whatever we experience and be with the small, the unknown, the weak, the forgotten, the unfit, the closed, the poor, the strangers…

Stipe Ćavar, the first employee of the Mir Međugorje Information Center passed away

Everything he did, he did with so much zeal, dedication, fervor and responsibility according to his own conscience. With his inner attitude towards the work, he developed to the end all the talents that God gave him. In all this, he was an exceptionally a good soul, a good man. When it was necessary to protect this project and desire of Our Lady with work and deeds, you were not afraid to expose yourself and your family. You did not fear anyone, only the Lord.
