After the apparition, which began at 11.50 a.m. and lasted 12 minutes, Jakov wrote:
“Our Lady came joyful. She greeted me, as always, with ‘Praised be Jesus!’ She spoke to me about the secrets and afterwards gave me this message:
“Dear children! Today, on the birthday of my Son, my heart is filled with immeasurable joy, love and peace. As your mother, I desire for each of you to feel that same joy, peace and love in the heart. That is why do not be afraid to open your heart and to completely surrender yourself to Jesus, because only in this way can He enter into your heart and fill it with love, peace and joy. I bless you with my motherly blessing.”
Jakov prayed with his family. He prepared himself for the apparition with Confession and Holy Mass. After the apparition, he cried for a while.
