Our Lady appeared to Ivan on top of Apparition Mountain tonight, August 23, 2013, at approximately 10:00 p.m. underneath a clear sky full of stars. Ivan’s prayer group led a rosary in preparation for the apparition, and Our Lady appeared to Ivan for approximately 10 minutes. A bright, full moon could be seen beginning to rise over the crest of Apparition Mountain at the end of the apparition, helping to light the way for pilgrims as they descended the mountainside. After the apparition to Ivan on August 23, 2013 on Apparition Mountain which took place just before 10:00 p.m. Ivan said:
“Also today, as every day after the meeting with Our Lady I would like to describe to all of you what is most important from tonight’s meeting with Our Lady. 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 – so I use the words which I have to describe to you what is the most important.
“Also tonight Our Lady came to us very joyful and happy and at the beginning, She greeted all of us with Her customary Motherly greeting, ‘Praised be Jesus, my dear children.’ Then She extended Her arms over all of us and for a longer time prayed here over all of us in Her Aramaic language. Then She prayed especially over the sick present here. Then Our Lady said:
“Dear children, also today I call you: Open your hearts to peace. Dear children, pray, pray of the King of Peace to grant you peace. Open yourselves to Him. He is your King. Dear children, especially during this time, pray for peace in the world. Pray for my plans which I desire to realize – plans of peace. Pray, dear children. Pray that peace may come to rule over the world. Thank you also today for having said ‘yes’ to my call.”
“Then Our Lady blessed all of us with Her Motherly blessing, and She also blessed everything you brought to be blessed.
“As always, so also today, I recommended all of you, all your needs, your intentions, your families and in a special way, all of the sick present and those who in a special way recommended themselves in prayer. After that Our Lady extended Her arms and prayed over all of us here and after that prayer She left 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. I would like to repeat that in two days we are waiting for Our Lady’s message which She will direct to the whole world. And we will see what Our Lady desires and asks of us. Thank you.”
