Today, June 25, 2013, as the parish of Medjugorje celebrates the 32nd anniversary of the apparitions, Our Lady appeared to the visionary Marija and delivered the following message for the world:
“Dear children! With joy in the heart I love you all and call you to draw closer to my Immaculate Heart so I can draw you still closer to my Son Jesus, and that He can give you His peace and love, which are nourishment for each one of you. Open yourselves, little children, to prayer – open yourselves to my love. I am your mother and cannot leave you alone in wandering and sin. You are called, little children, to be my children, my beloved children, so I can present you all to my Son. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
Today, Our Lady also appeared to the visionary Ivanka, as she has been doing every year on this date since Ivanka received the 10th secret. The apparition today took place at Ivanka’s home, but Our Lady did not give a message.
Last night, June 24, which is the anniversary of the day that the children first saw Our Lady (but did not talk to her), the visionary Ivan experienced an apparition. It took place on Apparition Hill, the same place where Mary first appeared 32 years ago.
Appearing last night at around 10 pm, Our Lady delivered the following message:
“Dear children, I come to you with joy and with a joyful desire I call you today: Accept my messages and live my messages. Dear children, with you I wish to realize my plans with the world, with the Church. In a special way today I call you: renew my messages, live my messages. In the beginning I presented myself as the Queen of Peace. Also today in a special way I call you to pray for peace, for peace in the human heart, peace in your hearts, for peace comes from your heart. Dear children, the Mother prays for all of you, the Mother loves you with all her motherly love and presents you all to her Son. Dear children, today I want to say thank you: thank you for welcoming me, and because you will continue to accept my messages and live them.”
