On June 25, 1981, in the tiny village of Medjugorje, located in Bosnia-Hercegovina, six Croatian children reported seeing an apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary. More than 35 million people from all over the world have now visited Medjugorje. Pope John Paul II and the Roman Catholic Church have acknowledged that this has become the greatest religious event of our time.
Thirty two years later, Our Lady is still reportedly appearing, bringing a message of hope and peace to a troubled world.
June 25, 2014 Annual Apparition to Ivanka
At her last daily apparition on May 7, 1985, Our Lady confided to Ivanka the 10th secret and told her that she would have an apparition once a year on the anniversary of the apparitions. It was that way also this year.
The apparition, which lasted 4 minutes, took place at Ivanka's family home. Only Ivanka's family was present at the apparition. After the apparition, Ivanka said: "Our Lady gave us her motherly blessing."
The Virgin Mary's message of October 2, given during
"Dear children, with motherly love I implore you, love one another. May there be in you hearts, as my Son desired from the very begining, love for the Heavenly Father and for your neighbour in the first place - above everything of this world. My dear children, do you not recognize the signs of the times? Do you not recognize that all of this that is around you, all that is happening, is because there is no love? Comprehend that salvation is in true values. Accept the might of the Heavenly Father, love Him and honour Him. Walk in the footsteps of my Son. You, my children, my dear apostles, you are always gathering around me anew, because you are thirsty. You thirst for peace, love and happiness. Drink out of my hands. My hands are offering to you my Son who is the spring of clear water. He will bring your faith back to life and purify your hearts, because my Son loves pure hearts and pure hearts love my Son. Only pure hearts are humble and have firm faith. I ask for such hearts of you, my children. My Son told me that I am the mother of the entire world. I ask of those of you who accept me as such to help me, with your life, prayer and sacrifice, for all of my children to accept me as a mother - so that I may lead them to the spring of the clear water. Thank you. My dear children, as your shepherds offer you the Body of my Son with their blessed hands, always in your hearts give thanks to my Son for the sacrifice and for the shepherds that He always gives you anew."
On September 17, 2014 in Medjugorje, we went to see Vicka Ivankovic-Mijatovic, one of the six visionaries to whom the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared on June 25, 1981. Vicka is one of three who still sees the Blessed Mother every day. The other three visionaries each have one yearly apparition.
Vicka spoke for more than thirty minutes, sharing Our Blessed mothers messages, and then prayed with us for all our intentions.
