Dear Family of Mary!

Today was a fruitful day for us. As Denis and I prayed the Rosary on line, we were able to share videos shot just hours before in Medjugorje, at the Blue Cross. We felt like we were in Our Lady's "living room", we were so at home! It is always a blessing to share the intimate prayer time at the Blue Cross.

Then, by surprise, our team in Medjugorje arranged to be on Apparition Hill with Ivan Dragicevic's prayer group, for the apparition at 10:00 pm local time (3:00 pm EDT) and to stream the prayer and apparition, live! It was dark, but we could see the brightly lit statue of Our Lady that stands on the original apparition spot, and the silhouette of Ivan as he led the rosary. We were present for Our Lady's blessing! All who could join were blessed! It was wonderful! (We are sorry that there was not more notice for all of you, but we only found out 2 hours before the event.)

After the apparition, Ivan shared a message from Our Lady:

According to Ivan, "Our Lady came very joyful and greeted us with her motherly greeting, "Praised be Jesus." She prayed over all of us here with her hands extended. In a special way she prayed over those who were sick.
 
She said 'Dear children, also today, in a special way, I invite you in this time of grace to open your souls to the Holy Spirit. Dear children, do not permit the world to lead you. Therefore, may the Holy Spirit lead you. Pray, persevere in prayer, that the Holy Spirit may descend upon your families who are in darkness. The mother prays together with you, intercedes before her son for you. Thank you, dear children, for responding to my call today.'
 
Ivan continued, saying "She blessed us with her motherly blessing, and blessed all the articles we brought with us. I recommended all of you, your needs, intentions, and families and especially the sick. Afterwards Our Lady continued to pray over us and then left in an illuminated sign of the cross, saying 'Go in peace my dear children.'"


In this beautiful message, Our Lady focuses on the necessity of the Holy Spirit! We have just finished our novena to the Holy Spirit. What a beautiful message for us to receive from her!

Finally, tonight, on "Fruit of Medjugorje" we were blessed with a testimony from Fr. Peter Glas, in which his shares about the healing of a young boy from terrible seizures, through prayer to Our Lady on Apparition Hill at one of Ivan's apparitions at night! I encourage all of you to watch "Fruit of Medjugorje, Episode 68" in the archives. It is truly amazing!!

This has been a very full day of blessings, an explosion of graces for us all, straight from Medjugorje. Our hearts are overflowing with gratitude to Our Lady of Medjugorje, and to the Lord who blesses us through her intercession!

We will have the apparition with Ivan up on our website tomorrow. God bless each of you!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Lets ask ourselves, are we open to the Holy Spirit,do we pray to the Holy Spirit to enlighten us, to make us more sensitive to the things of God.

There is a prayer we need to pray every day

Holy Spirit may are hearts be open to the Word of God, may our hearts be open to good, may my heart be open to the beauty of God, every day.

Pope Francis
