Here at Litmanová, the Virgin Mary urged the young girls to attend Mass and make reparation for the sins of the area and the world. She arrived under the title of "Untainted Purity." A message for our youth. And message for us all. Once again, like LaSalette, like Fatima, like Guadalupe, like Lourdes, like Medjugorje, it involved a hillside (one could also describe it as a small mountain). The Church officially declared it a place of prayer and pilgrimage. Recalled the girls in a statement about the first apparition, which started with loud, startling sounds: "We went up to the hillside -- Katka, Ivetka, and Mikulas Ceselka. It was morning about seven o'clock. On the hill we played games all day long, we made a fire and we roasted some bacon and sang. The Liturgy was celebrated in the church at 5:00 p.m., but we did not want to go home to attend so we stayed up on the hill a little longer." Afraid of the sounds, they sought refuge in a hut. "We were sorry for our sins and at this moment there was a glow but we did not pay attention to this because we thought that it was from the sun. We did not say anything -- because we thought it was something from our imagination, or out of fear. We made ourselves a pledge that during this week we would go to church every day! At this moment our fear left. We were sitting on the bed and suddenly a glow appeared in the middle of the room and we saw the Blessed Mother. We tried to see whether this was really her! She sat on the bench and she was listening to us. We were staring at the bench and Katka said 'I see the Blessed Mother.' 'I see her too,' said Ivetka. At this moment, we all ran out of the room. We left the place in a hurry, we did not even lock the door, we only ran home. The Blessed Mother followed us on the way, she stayed about two steps behind us. When we turned around, we saw her behind us. She accompanied us to the roadside Cross. There, she knelt down and prayed. Then, she went behind us and then she started to gradually disappear.
