My Heart Will Triumph
“Afraid of what I might see, I slowly turned and looked up at the hill. In that moment, I struggled to process what I saw, and my heart whirled with fear and wonder. No one ever climbed that hill, but what I saw was unmistakable—there, among the rocks and brambles, was a young woman.”
-Mirjana, from MY HEART WILL TRIUMPH
Mirjana Soldo was only 16 years old when she and five other children saw a mysterious young woman on a remote hillside in the village of Medjugorje, then part of Yugoslavia. The woman—who possessed a beauty and grace that seemed to come from beyond—identified herself as the Virgin Mary.
The apparitions that began on the afternoon of June 24, 1981 would dramatically change Mirjana’s life and the lives of countless people around the world. Her claims, however, contradicted the atheistic ideologies of the Communist government and Mirjana was deemed “an enemy of the state.” They persecuted her, but she never denied what she saw.
Amazingly, the apparitions have continued for over 35 years. Millions of people travel to Medjugorje every year in search of answers to life’s biggest questions. The messages given by Mary are a call for mankind to return to God. And, according to Mirjana, the Virgin entrusted her with ten secrets that foretell the future of the world—secrets that she will reveal within her lifetime. Mirjana believes that now is the time to share her story with the world.
Softcover, 369 pages.
At the present time, Mirjana experiences apparitions on the 2nd of every month at the base of the same hill in Medjugorje where Mary first appeared. Mirjana’s mission, she says, is to pray for unbelievers, or, as the Virgin calls them, “those who have not yet come to know God’s love.”
Mirjana claims that Mary also chose her for a special role: to reveal ten secrets about the world’s future several days before the events happen, in effect proving the authenticity of the apparitions. Her book features additional details about this.
Mirjana is a humble woman with a keen sense of humor. Not only will her story resonate with people who know about Medjugorje, but it has the potential to reach countless others - believers and non-believers alike - given the enormity of her claims and the fascinating subject matter.
She felt called to share her story with the world, and her new book reveals many secrets about her life, and about the apparitions, which have never been revealed until now.
