Peace in the Families, Peace in the World
Ivan Prayer Group Medjugorje August 12, 2013 A.D.
A beautiful sunset behind the distant mountains and warm, gentle breezes preceded Our Lady’s arrival tonight, Monday August 12, 2013. A sky full of stars and a crescent moon rising over Cross Mountain appeared as the day gave way to night. Pilgrims spread themselves all around the Blue Cross and readied their hearts for Our Lady with the rosary led by Ivan’s prayer group. The apparition lasted approximately 8 minutes. Our Lady appeared to Ivan around 10:00 p.m. tonight, August 12, 2013, during his prayer group meeting at the Blue Cross. The following is Ivan’s description of the apparition:
“Tonight I would like to describe tonight’s meeting with Our Lady and what is the most important. It is always difficult to describe the meeting with Our Lady in words and to find the right words – to be able to express everything in these words – so I will use the words which I have to briefly describe to you.
“Also tonight Our Lady came to us very 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 arms over all of us and for a longer time prayed. Then She prayed especially over the sick present here, and then She blessed all of us with Her Motherly blessing, and She also blessed everything you brought to be blessed. Then Our Lady continued especially to pray for a longer time for peace in the world and peace in the families.
“Then I recommended all of you, all your needs, your intentions, your families and in a special way, all of you sick present. After that Our Lady prayed especially for peace and left in that prayer, in an illuminated Sign of the Cross, with a greeting, ‘Go in peace my dear children.’
“This is what would be the most important from tonight’s meeting. There was no special message tonight. Our Lady tonight, for a long time, especially prayed for peace in the families and peace in the world. Thank you.”
