1st day: We pray for the Visionaries
Jakov Colo was born on March 6, 1971, and was ten years old when the apparitions began, making him the youngest of all the visionaries. Jakov’s father lived and worked far from the family, in Germany, and therefore Jakov was being raised primarily by his mother. His mother died two years after the apparitions began, however, basically leaving Jakov an orphan. On September 12, 1998, Jakov was traveling in the United States when Our Lady entrusted to him the tenth secret and told him his daily apparitions would come to an end. Our Lady also told Jakov she would appear to him every year on Christmas Day, for the rest of his life. Jakov struggled tremendously with this change. After his own mother died, the Blessed Mother became Jakov’s mother in the truest sense of the word, so this loss of the daily apparitions was very painful for him. The prayer mission that was entrusted to him is to pray for the sick. Jakov is married to an Italian woman named Annalisa, and they have 3 children. They live in Medjugorje.
1. Prayer to the Queen of Peace
You came to us to lead us to God.
Obtain for us the grace not only to say:
“Be it done to me according to Your will!”, but to live it, as You did.
Come Holy Spirit, Creator, come
best gift of God above,
the living spring, the living fire,
sweet unction and true love.

We come to you, dearest Mother,
from all quarters, from all nations;
bringing to you all our troubles
ardent wishes, aspirations.
Look upon us and console us,
lay your gentle hands upon us;
intercede with Jesus for us,
Mother of Peace, do pray for us.
All the faithful look up to you,
you the lodestar of salvation;
cleanse, embrace us, we pray to you,
bless all in the congregation.
little hamlets spread the story,
bearing witness to your beauty
to your name and to your glory.
For all your love, dearest Mother
all the wonders that we have seen,
we give to you solemn promise
to be better than we have been.
