Our Lady appeared to Ivan on top of Apparition Mountain at a little after 10:00 p.m. on January 1, 2011. The apparition lasted about 10 minutes. There were thousands of pilgrims present for this apparition. The following is Ivan’s description of the apparition:
Tonight, as after every day after every encounter with Our Lady, I want to describe also to you what was the most important from this meeting tonight.
Tonight Our Lady came to us very joyful and happy and greeted all of us at the beginning with Her usual Motherly greeting: “Praised be Jesus, my dear children”.
Afterwards Our Lady said:
“Dear children also today the Mother calls you with joy – pray, pray, pray. Pray, dear children, and help me realize my plans which I desire to realize with the world and with this parish. Dear children, in a special way today I call you to pray for vocations in the Church, for a firm faith of my priests. Know, dear children, that I always pray with you when it is the most difficult for you, therefore, persevere in prayer. Pray together with me. Also today I want to say thank you to you for having responded, for having accepted my messages and for living my messages.”
Afterwards Our Lady prayed for a longer time over all of us here with Her arms extended. She blessed us all with Her Motherly blessing and blessed everything you brought to be blessed. After that, She prayed especially over you the sick who are present here. I recommended all of you, all your needs, your intentions, your families and in a special way, as always, I recommended the sick. Afterwards a conversation followed, I spoke to Our Lady and She spoke to me. After that conversation, Our Lady continued to pray over all of us and in that prayer She left in an illuminated Sign of the Cross with the greeting: “Go in peace, my dear children”.
