Today is August 31 2016 and the anniversary of Princess Diana's death and the feast day of St Joseph of Arimathea and St Nicodemus in the calendar of the Latin Patriarchy of the Holy Land. Today I also received an email saying that Mirjana of Medjugorje has seen some significance in regards to the secrets with the date 18 March 2017. In fact it would seem that Mirjana did some years ago talk about the significance of March 18 but no year was given-this is just one man's speculation that we should watch March 18 next year as the possible date that Mirjana was referring to in her answer to a pilgrim.
“Great people were born on the 18th of March. But I never have my birthday because that is the day of the apparition. And many people have the wrong opinion about it. They feel that Our Lady comes to me on the 18th of March because it is my birthday. She doesn’t come for sure for that reason because she never said to me Happy Birthday. When everything starts happening, then you will be able to understand why the 18th of March, why every second of the month, why Wednesdays and Fridays are days of fasting, everything will be clear.”The number 18 has a lot of significance with the apparitions of Garabandal. It is interesting that in the Jewish world speculation from Jewish prophecies speak of an event connected with a comet (Star of Jacob) to occur on the 25th Day of the sixth Jewish month by the 16th century Jewish mystical Rabbi Moses Cordovero. There is some disagreement about whether that month is Adar or Elul. The 25th of Adar 5777 (2017) next year is on March 23 which is 5 days after March 18 (Adar 20). Could this March 18 date be connected to the Warning of Garabandal? Time will only tell.
Some have claimed that the warning and miracle of Garanbandal will occur in the same calendar year rather than within a year of each other. If the miracle occurs on April 13 2017 then the warning may also occur in 2017. Some claim that one of the visionaries mentioned it would be either about 3 weeks or 3 months before the Warning. Thus the warning could happen anytime between January 13th and 23rd of March. It is interesting that the three weeks before date of March 23rd matches the Jewish date of the 25th of Adar in 2017. Is the coming of the comet or asteroid and the warning connected? Could March 18 be the day when Mirjana's priest announces the first of the secrets. If he did this on the evening of March 18 then that would be the 21st of Adar in the Jewish calendar, then three days follow until the 24th of Adar and then the prophesied event on the 25th of Adar (sundown of March 22 to sundown of March 23).
Whatever the result, next year is the 100th year Jubilee since the apparitions of Fatima occurred in 1917 and is also a Jubilee year in the prophetic Jewish calendar of the Jewish mystics as referred to by Rabbi Judah ha Chasid ben Samuel of Speyer who died in 1217 (a prophetic Jubilee year). Also 2017 will be the 50th Jubilee anniversary of the return of Jerusalem to Jewish control and the 100th year Jubilee of the signing of the Balfour declaration and the end of exactly 400 years of Turkish rule over Jerusalem. Some have predicted that the events of the warning and miracle would impact on the Jewish people in a deep way. (see Garabandal and the Synagogue). It will also be the 500th anniversary of the period known as the Church of Sardis which began with the Great Catholic Monarch the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V and the Protestant Revolt and will conclude with the rise of the Great Catholic Monarch Henry leading into the era of the Church of Philadelphia.
