March 18, 2016 annual message from Our Lady of Medjugorje to Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo:
The visionary Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo had daily apparitions from June 24, 1981 to December 25, 1982. During the last daily apparition, Our Lady gave her the 10th secret, and told her that she would appear to her once a year, on the 18th of March. It has been this way through the years.
“Dear children, with a motherly heart filled with love for you, my children, I desire to teach you complete trust in God the Father.
I desire for you to learn by an internal gaze and internal listening to follow God’s will.
I desire for you to learn to boundlessly trust in His mercy and His love, as I always trusted.
Therefore, my children, cleanse your hearts.
Free yourselves from everything that binds you to only what is earthly and permit what is of God to form your life by your prayer and sacrifice so that God’s Kingdom may be in your heart; that you may begin to live proceeding from God the Father; that you may always strive to walk with my Son.
But for all of this, my children, you must be poor in spirit and filled with love and mercy.
You must have pure and simple hearts and always be ready to serve.
My children, listen to me, I speak for your salvation.
