Medjugorje visionary Vicka Mijatovic attracted over 2,000 followers to the RDS venue in Dublin yesterday, and many claimed they could feel the presence of Our Lady in the hall.
Mijatovic was the eldest of six children but was just 16 when she said the Virgin Mary appeared to her on June 25, 1981 in Medjugorje in south Bosnia.
Since then she says Mary visits with her at the same time every day.
“When I kneel down you will know that Mary is really among us,” Mijatovic told the crowd.
“We need to pray and thank God for this gift, for this pain, for this sorrow and pray to God for the strength to carry on with this gift,” she said.
“Mary came tonight very happy and every night she comes she says hello to her son Jesus. The first message is prayer and peace and conversion and confession and fast,” she said.
Afterwards she was mobbed by the crowd. Kathleen Dougan told “The Irish Times,” “She touched my rosary beads. I was lucky. I can still feel her.”
“She had the vision there; you could hear a pin drop. I could feel Mary’s presence,” Gráinne Levers from Dublin told the “Times.”
