Ivan Now in Medjugorje - Apparition and Message of Our Lady

At sunset on top of Apparition Mountain, tonight, May 20, 2011. Oh how beautiful to return to Medjugorje, to her sunrises and sunsets, to her rock-strewn mountains and the dirt pathways that lead to them, to the sounds of singing and praying day in and day out, the birds chirping, the bells ringing…and to the deep silence of the apparitions of Our Lady when She appears, even when tens of thousands of people are gathered, all grow silent for Her coming. How beautiful, after 30 years of apparitions, She is still with us.

Ivan Now in Medjugorje - Apparition and Message of Our Lady

May 20, 2011 A.D.

Our Lady appeared to Ivan on top of Apparition Mountain tonight at around 10:00 p.m. Pilgrims began to climb the mountain at around 7:00 p.m., finding a quiet spot to sit and pray, preparing for the time that they will be before our Mother. It was a beautiful evening, as pilgrims gathered, admiring the beauty of God’s creation through the beautiful sunset this evening. Pilgrims continued to climb and find a vacant spot to sit or kneel, up to the moment of the apparition. After over a half an hour of singing, Ivan began the Rosary. We prayed one mystery of the Rosary and began a second one. At the end of the second decade, all grew silent, as Ivan knelt and prepared to receive Our Lady. Our Lady appeared to Ivan 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 every meeting with Our Lady, I desire to also describe to you what is the most important. Our Lady came very joyful and happy and at the beginning, as always, She greeted us all with Her Motherly greeting, “Praised be Jesus, my dear children.” Then Our Lady said:

"Dear children,
 Today more than ever I desire to call you to prayer. Dear children, satan wants to destroy today’s families, therefore I desire to call you to a renewal of family prayer. Pray, dear children, in your families with your children, do not permit access to satan. Thank you, dear children, for also today responding to my call.”

Our Lady then for a while, with Her arms extended, prayed over all of us here. She prayed over the sick present and She blessed us all with Her Motherly blessing. She also blessed the religious articles brought for blessing. Then Our Lady prayed for a while especially for peace, for peace in the world. I recommended also all of you, your needs, your intentions, your families and especially the sick. Our Lady then continued to pray over all of us. She left in that prayer, in an illuminated Sign of the Cross with a greeting, “Go in peace, my dear children.”

Our Lady has asked us so often to renew prayer within our families.This is so important.
Now that our children are grown, my husband and I spend much time praying for them and their families.

Thank you for sharing this.
