June 17, 2013 A.D.
Our Lady appeared to Ivan during his prayer group meeting on top of Apparition Mountain at 10:00 p.m. tonight, June 17, 2013. The prayer group began singing a little before 9:00 p.m. At around 9:15 p.m., Ivan started the Joyful and Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary. Our Lady appeared to Ivan around 10:00 p.m. and the apparition lasted for several minutes. Several thousand pilgrims were present for the apparition. Below is Ivan’s description of the apparition.
“I would like to use this opportunity after this meeting together with Our Lady to also describe to you tonight’s meeting. Also tonight, Our Lady came to us very joyful and happy. She came with three angels. At the beginning, She greeted all of us with Her Motherly greeting, ‘Praised be Jesus my dear children.’ Then She extended Her arms and for a longer time prayed over all of us. In a special way, She prayed for the sick present here and over all the priests present. Then Our Lady said:
“Dear children, I have come here and introduced myself as the Queen of Peace, and today, in a special way, I call you to pray for peace. Pray for peace, especially in your families. Peace, peace dear children. Open yourselves to the gift of peace. The Mother prays together with you and intercedes for all of you before Her Son. The Mother loves you with the Motherly love. Thank you, dear children, for also today, having responded to my call.”
“Then I recommended all of you, all of your needs, your intentions, your families and in a special way, the sick. Our Lady continued to pray for all of us for a while with Her arms extended and left in that prayer, in an illuminated Sign of the Cross, with a greeting, ‘Go in peace my dear children.’”
