08.06.2012. - June 8: Our Lady Calls Us to Pray for the Parishes We Are From
June 8, 2012 Apparition of Our Lady at the Blue Cross
June 8, 2012 A.D.
With Mirjana’s June 2nd of the month apparition behind us, and the 31st Anniversary of the apparitions in Medjugorje before us, the crowds in Medjugorje are a bit thinner. Though very hot during the day, the nights in Medjugorje are presently cool and pleasant. With a starry night sky as backdrop for tonight’s apparition, it was beautiful to gather with thousands of others with Our Lady tonight. Typically, Ivan’s apparitions are longer than Mirjana’s second of the month, and the daily apparitions of the visionaries. Tonight was no exception, with the apparition lasting 8-10 minutes—so much time to share our hearts with our Mother while She was before us.
At the very end of the evening, while pilgrims were slowly making their way down from the Blue Cross, the peaceful night was interrupted by demonic screams that went on for several minutes from one who had attended the apparition. It was startling for those who had never been to Medjugorje before, and it caused the crowd to erupt into spontaneous prayer, with Hail Mary’s being fervently prayed in several languages. Despite this interruption, the peace of the night lingered while pilgrims made their way back to their pansions, through the fields and streets of Medjugorje, happy to have been blessed by Our Lady on Her mountain tonight.
June 8, 2012, Apparition at Blue Cross with Medjugorje Visionary Ivan
After the apparition of Our Lady at the Blue Cross in Medjugorje, on June 8, 2012 at about 10:00 p.m., Ivan said:
“Tonight, as always, after every meeting with Our Lady, I desire to describe to you what is the most important from tonight’s meeting. Tonight, Our Lady came to us 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 Our Lady said:
‘Dear children, also today, in a special way, I call you to renew my messages. Live my messages. I call all of you tonight to pray in a special way for the parishes from which you come from and for your priests. Through this time, in a special way, I call you to pray for vocations in the Church. Pray, dear children, pray, pray. Also today, I thank you for having responded to my call.’
Our Lady then for a longer while, with Her arms extended, prayed over all of us here. She blessed everyone with Her motherly blessing and She also blessed everything you brought to be blessed. Then Our Lady prayed, for a while, over the sick present here. I recommended all of you, your needs, your intentions, your families and especially, as always, I recommended the sick. Our Lady then continued to pray over all of us. She left in that prayer, in an illuminated Sign of the Cross with a greeting, ‘Go in peace, my dear children.’”
