June 24: Our Lady to Appear During Ivan's Prayer Group Tonight
June 24, 2013 A.D.
Ivan had his prayer group apparition tonight on top of Apparition Mountain. Pilgrims began to gather up on the mountain before 6:00 p.m. By the time the apparition began, there were tens of thousands of pilgrims gathered to pray and be before Our Lady on this first day of the 32nd anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions here in Medjugorje. Ivan led everyone present in the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary. Our Lady appeared around 10:00 p.m. and the apparition lasted for several minutes. The following is Ivan’s description of the apparition.
“Today, as always after the meeting with Our Lady, I would like to describe also to you what is most important from tonight’s meeting. At the beginning, I would like to say that it is very difficult to describe the meeting with Our Lady in words and to find the right words, especially today when Our Lady, on today’s date, touched this place and when we saw Her for the first time. In a special way today, She came to us very, very joyful and happy. At the beginning, She greeted all of us with Her Motherly greeting, ‘Praised be Jesus my dear children.’ Then She extended Her arms and for a longer time prayed over all of us. In a special way, She prayed for the sick present here. Then Our Lady said:
“Dear children, I am coming to you joyful and with joy. I desire to call you also today: accept my messages and live my messages. Dear children, with you I desire to realize my plans with the world and with the Church. In a special way, I call you today: renew my messages, live my messages. I introduced myself as the Queen of Peace and today I call you, in a special way, to pray for peace, for peace in men’s hearts, for peace in your hearts. Because peace comes from your heart. Dear children, the Mother prays for all of you. The Mother loves you all with Her Motherly love and intercedes for you before Her Son. Dear children, also today I say thank you. Thank you for having accepted me and for continuing to accept my messages.”
Then I recommended all of you, all your needs, your intentions, your families and in a special way, all the sick. A pleasant conversation followed between us that remains only between us. After that conversation, Our Lady left in prayer, in an illuminated Sign of the Cross, with a greeting, ‘Go in peace my dear children.’
“Also I must say that Our Lady blessed us all with Her Motherly blessing and She blessed everything you brought to be blessed. This would be what is the most important from tonight’s meeting with Our Lady. We all know that tomorrow is the 25th and that on every 25th Our Lady turns to us with Her message which She gives for the whole world. We will wait until tomorrow to see what Our Lady desires to say to all of us.
