On the third day of the apparitions, June 26, 1981, and in answer to the visionary Mirjana’s question “Who are you?”, Our Lady replied, “I am the Blessed Virgin Mary.”
In all of the monthly Medjugorje messages given by Our Lady since January 1987, she has only once mentioned herself by the name Mary.
Dear children! I call you anew to consecrate yourselves to my heart and the heart of my Son Jesus. I desire, little children, to lead you all on the way of conversion and holiness. Only in this way, through you, we can lead all the more souls on the way of salvation. Do not delay, little children, but say with all your heart: “I want to help Jesus and Mary that all the more brothers and sisters may come to know the way of holiness.” In this way, you will feel the contentment of being friends of Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call. October 25, 2003
