June 25: Our Lady's Apparition During Ivan's Prayer Group
June 25, 2012 Apparition to Visionary Ivan
June 25, 2012 A.D.
There was an apparition of Our Lady to Ivan tonight during his prayer group meeting on Appariton Mountain. After the apparition of Our Lady on Apparition Mountain at about 10:00 p.m., June 25, 2012, Ivan said:
“Today, as always, after every meeting with Our Lady, I desire to describe to you what is the most important. Also today 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, for a longer time, with Her arms extended, She prayed over all of us here. Then She blessed us all with Her Motherly blessing and also blessed everything you brought for a blessing. Then I recommended all of you, all your needs, all your intentions, all your families and especially all of you here who are sick. Then Our Lady prayed over the sick present here. She continued to pray over all of us and in that prayer left in an illuminated Sign of the Cross with a greeting, ‘Go in peace, my children.’
“As you know, several hours ago Our Lady gave a message for the whole world. Let us listen to the message which Our Lady directed to all of us.”
Our Lady's message given earlier on June 25, 2012:
“Dear children! With great hope in the heart, also today I call you to prayer. If you pray, little children, you are with me and you are seeking the will of my Son and are living it. Be open and live prayer and, at every moment, may it be for you the savor and joy of your soul. I am with you and I intercede for all of you before my Son Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
Our Lady continues, after 31 years, to draw incredibly large crowds for Her Anniversary of the apparitions. The entire landscape around St. James Church was covered with people. A great many of them were Croatians, from not only neighboring villages, but neighboring countries as well. The great numbers present at the Mass, filled the top of Apparition Mountain just a few hours later, to be present for the apparition of Our Lady during visionary Ivan’s prayer group meeting.
During the Rosary leading up to the apparition, a great commotion was caused by several different demoniacs who suddenly began, about the same time, making chilling noises even though they were not in the same location. Barking, moaning, crying and screaming sounds startled many on the mountain and a great outcry resulted among the pilgrims to such an extent that a member of Ivan’s prayer group had to interrupt the Rosary two different times to settle down the crowd. Despite the agitation, when the apparition began at around 10:00 p.m., there was silence and peace. Half way through the lengthy apparition, deep sobbing could be heard, and then more sobbing from another area on the mountain. It came from the same areas that the demoniacs had just been heard. One felt great pity for such suffering souls.
