The Medjugorje seers are only a means to communicate a
message, and so they are no more important than the pilgrims who
basically have the same role, says visionary Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo.
The privileged people are the priests, adds the seer who says the key is
in opening the heart.
Ascribing too much importance to visionaries can prevent some people
from seeing that they are just as important themselves, and have many
opportunities in spite of not being seers, Medjugorje visionary Mirjana
Dragicevic-Soldo says in a so far un-translated August 2012 interview
with the Italian online magazine Io Acqua e Sapone.
“You do not need visionaries, all you need is an open heart, because
the Blessed Virgin says: “Open your heart, and I will be with you.” We
seers are only a means, we must only say what God wants to say through
our Mother, but you have the same importance, as apostles for our Mother
and in bringing this with you into your homes and cities” Mirjana says.
The visionary tells she has plenty of examples, and that these
examples highlight the importance of opening the heart by means of
prayer and fasting, and asking the Virgin Mary to help:
“After the apparitions on the second day of every month, I have seen
many people who came to me to say they had been healed, and they had
come to know the love of God. I did not know those people, I did not ask
anything for them, but they had their hearts open and asked for their
Mother’s help, and she interceded for them with her Son. I tell you this
to let you know how much you need our Mother” Mirjana says.
“When Our Lady asks us to fast and to pray the Rosary, it is not
because she needs our rosaries or our fasting, but because we need this.
Because in this way our heart opens more and more, and the more we see,
and so we see the problems of our friend who is carrying a big cross,
and we see who needs bread.”
“But this is only when our heart is open. It is useless to pray and
fast if you close your eyes when you see someone who needs help and do
nothing” says the seer.
“So even if it is just a little, our prayer is good, because we are
on a good road and Our Lady will help us. She opens up her heart, she
teaches us how to pray stronger, and with the heart. You just have to go
and ask the Virgin Mary to help you.”
If the visionaries are not particularly privileged people, another group is actually set apart and special, says Mirjana:
“As I understand it by looking at the messages, if someone are
privileged for our Mother, it is our priests. She says: “They do not
need your judgment or your criticism, but your prayers and your love,
for God will judge them for how they were as priests, but He will judge
you for your behavior with the priests.” Our Lady wants for us that we
are recognized for love, only God can judge” she says.
“I am sorry that I cannot tell you more about everything that Our
Lady is preparing in all these years, but I can tell you one thing:
there are the times we are living in now, and there will be the time of the Triumph of the Heart of our Mother.”
“Between these two times, there is a bridge, and that bridge is our
priests. That is why Our Lady insists so much on prayer for them,
because that bridge must be very strong to ensure that everyone can
pass. Our Lady said: “With them, I will triumph.”
