A s summer begins to yield to fall, tonight the air was chilly yet refreshing at the Blue Cross on Apparition Mountain where Our Lady appeared to Ivan just before 10:00 p.m. By 7:00 p.m., many pilgrims had already staked out the spots that would be closest to the Blue Cross where Our Lady would appear, and a few thousand pilgrims began to sprinkle in to the area surround the Blue Cross over the next 3 hours. Ivan’s prayer group led the crowd in a rosary in preparation for the apparition. The apparition began with silence but was quickly interrupted by the screaming of a demonic, which however lasted for only a minute. The apparition lasted approximately 9 minutes. After the apparition to Ivan on August 30, 2013 on Apparition Mountain, which took place just before 10:00 p.m., Ivan said:
“I would like to especially set out what is the most important from tonight’s meeting together with Our Lady. Also tonight Our Lady came to us joyful and happy and at the beginning, She greeted all of us with Her Motherly greeting, ‘Praised be Jesus, my dear children.’ Then She extended Her hands over all of us and for a longer time prayed over all of us here. She especially prayed over you sick present here and over the priests.
“Then Our Lady blessed all of us with Her Motherly blessing, and She also blessed everything you brought to be blessed. After that, Our Lady for a longer time especially prayed for holiness in families and for the youth.
“I then recommended all of you, all your needs, your intentions, your families and in a special way, all of the sick present. After that, Our Lady continued to especially pray for the families and then left in an illuminated Sign of the Cross with a greeting, ‘Go in peace my dear children.’
