Medjugorje: Our Lady's Apparition August 5, 2013 A.D.
"It is very, very difficult to describe a meeting with Her..."
Ivan in Medjugorje August 5, 2013 A.D.
Our Lady appeared to Ivan tonight on Apparition Mountain a few minutes before 11:00 p.m. It was a warm, clear, star-filled night, and several thousands of pilgrims slowly trickled up the mountain, completely filling the area surrounding Our Lady’s statue and spilling down the mountainside as well. Ivan’s prayer group prayed a rosary leading up to the apparition with songs sung in between. Our Lady appeared to Ivan after the ‘Hail Holy Queen’ was prayed, and the apparition lasted a little longer than 10 minutes. The mountain top was completely silent throughout the entire apparition. When it came time for Ivan to describe the apparition over the microphone, he raised the microphone to his mouth 3 separate times and lowered it back down before he brought it back up the 4th time and began to speak. It looked as though he was trying to compose himself to speak, but was not able to begin until his 4th try. After the apparition to Ivan on August 5, 2013 just before 11:00 p.m. Ivan said:
“Tonight, as every day after my meeting together with Our Lady I would also like to share with you tonight’s meeting to describe it to you – although it is very, very difficult to describe a meeting with Her. It is difficult to find the right words – to describe the beauty of Our Lady – to describe the meeting together with Her – that feeling – that experience. In a special way what is always the most difficult for me is to describe the love of the Mother – how much the Mother loves us – how much She desires to help us – Her perseverance in leading all of us towards The Son. That is why in these words which I have, I desire to share what is the most important from tonight’s meeting.
“Also tonight Our Lady came to us very, very joyful and happy. She greeted all of us with Her motherly greeting: ‘Praised be Jesus my dear children.’ Then She extended Her arms over all of us here and She prayed for a longer time in Her Aramaic language. She especially prayed over those of you who are sick here and over you priests. Then Our Lady said:
‘Dear children, today also in this my great joy watching all of you with an open heart, a joyful heart, I call all of you to responsibly pray for peace. Pray, dear children, that peace may come to rule in the world – that peace may come to rule in the hearts of men, in the hearts of my children. That is why, be my carriers of peace in this restless world. Be my living sign – a sign of peace. Where you meet with people, in your parish, be my sign, be my light, my mirror to others. Know, dear children, that I am always with you and that I pray for all of you – and that I intercede for all of you before Jesus, before my Son. Therefore persevere in prayer. Thank you also today for having said ‘yes’ to my call.’
After that Our Lady blessed all with her Motherly blessing and also She blessed everything you brought for blessing. I also recommended all of you, your needs, your intentions, your families, and in a special way, all the sick, and all those who recommended themselves in a special way to pray for them. Our Mother intercedes for all of us before Her Son. Our Lady then continued to pray, in Her great joy She prayed over all of us here and She left in this prayer in an illuminated sign of the cross with the greeting:
‘Go in peace, my dear children!’
This would be the most important from tonight’s meeting – a meeting filled with joy. Thank you.”
