There were present a U.S. television crew that was filming the events in Medjugorje. Fr. John Bertolucci was the narrator. The name of the television program was "The Glory of God". Concerned about the police and the oppression still going on at that time, they were worried about getting the film out of the country. They were delighted and at the same time assured because Our Lady cleverly used their title in Her answer.
"There will be some difficulties, but it will be for the glory of God."

Mirjana shared with Father Tomislav Vlasic that during the year and a half that she had been receiving apparitions, she had experienced the maternal love and intimacy of Our Lady and questioned Her why God could so "Mercilessly" send sinners to Hell forever.
"Men who go to Hell no longer want to receive any benefit from God. They do not repent nor do they cease to revolt and to blaspheme. they make up their mind to live in Hell and do not contemplate leaving it."
"In Purgatory there are different levels; the lowest is close to Hell and the highest gradually draws near to Heaven. It is not on All Souls Day, but at Christmas, that the greatest number of souls leave Purgatory. There are in Purgatory, souls who pray ardently to God, but for whom no relative or friend prays on earth. God makes them benefit from the prayers of other people. It happens that God permits them to manifest themselves in different ways, close to their relatives on earth, in order to remind men of the existence of Purgatory and to solicit their prayers to come close to God who is just, but good. The majority of people go to Purgatory. Many go to Hell. A small number go directly to Heaven."

The visionaries are invited to record Our Lady's testimony as She begins to tell them her life; but, until they receive Her authorization, they will not be able to make this information public. Jakov will receive information until April; Ivanka until May 22; Marija until July 17; and for Vicka, this transmission lasted until April 10, 1985 and filled three notebooks.

Ivan, Jakov, Marija, and Vicka relate the following information to Father Tomislav:
Marija has received seven secrets;
Vicka has received eight;
Jakov, Ivanka, and Ivan have received nine; and
Mirjana has received all ten.
As to how long the apparitions will last or why Our Lady no longer appears to Mirjana after Christmas, we do not know. Our Lady constantly invites us to prayer, fasting, and conversion and she confirms her promises.
Regarding the time of the sign, it's month and year, Ivan says: "It is forecasted."

Concerning the new year:
"Pray as much as possible and fast!
You must persevere in prayer and fasting.
I wish that the new year will be spent in prayer and penance.
Persevere in prayer and in sacrifice and I will protect you and will hear your prayers."
