On August 2nd 1981, the Virgin Mary let the villagers touch her, and announced why she had come. On August 2nd 1987, she began appearing to visionary Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo again. The date also saw a major sun miracle. Now Mirjana says it all points ahead to more August 2nd events.

Medjugorje and the date August 2 are linked in special ways that will be more fully known in the future, visionary Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo tells in author Wayne Weible’s new book, “Medjugorje, The Last Apparition”.
In the book, Weible asks the visionary if it is coincidental that Mirjana’s encounters with the Virgin Mary began anew on August 2nd 1987, having been interrupted for almost five years – when August 2nd also stands out as the day (in 1981) when the Virgin Mary allowed the parishioners of Medjugorje to touch her, only to stain her dress, an event that had parishioner Marinko Ivankovic call everyone present to go to confession.Wayne Weible
“Many beautiful things happened on this day. You will understand later why this day is the day she chose to (again) appear to me” Mirjana replies.
Also on August 2nd 1981 the Virgin Mary explained why she had started to appear in Medjugorje, with the message “A major struugle is about to unfold. A struggle between my Son and Satan. Human souls are at stake.” And on August 2nd 2009, an estimated 50,000 people witnessed a major sun miracle during Mirjana’s public apparition, with the sun dramatically pulsating in the sky.Mirjana looking straight into the sun while a major solar miracle occurs during her apparition on August 2nd 2009 (video below)
The Catholic Church has long celebrated August 2 as a Marian feast day when the Virgin Mary is venerated as Our Lady of the Angels. Medjugorje being a Franciscan parish,
