May 20: Medjugorje visionary Ivan in Medjugorje, pictures, description and message of Our Lady during Ivan’s Prayer Group tonight…
May 20, 2013 A.D.
Our Lady appeared to Ivan during his prayer group meeting on top of Apparition Mountain at 10:00 p.m. tonight, May 20, 2013. The prayer group began singing at around 8:45 p.m. At 9:30 p.m., Ivan started the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary. Our Lady appeared to Ivan around 10:00 p.m. and the apparition lasted for several minutes. Below is Ivan’s description of the apparition.
“Today, like every day after my meeting with Our Lady, I would like to describe to you my meeting together with Her. Tonight Our Lady came very joyful and happy. As always, at the beginning She greeted all of us with Her Motherly greeting, ‘Praised be Jesus my dear children.’ Then Our Lady with Her hands extended, prayed in a special way over all of us for a longer while. She prayed over the sick present. Then She said:
“Then Our Lady blessed us all with Her Motherly blessing and She blessed everything brought to be blessed. Also I recommended all of you, all of your needs, your intentions, your families and in a special way, the sick. Our Lady then continued to pray over all of us here. And then She left in prayer, in an illuminated Sign of the Cross, saying ‘Go in peace my dear children.’”

Pictures from the Apparition Tonight May 20, 2013
The sun sets on Medjugorje, Monday, May 20, 2013, as pilgrims gather on top of Apparition Mountain to await the arrival of the Queen of Heaven. With Medjugorje visionary, Ivan, returning to Medjugorje last week, the opportunity to be with Our Lady in an apparition during his prayer group meetings is, again, made available to the tens of the thousands of pilgrims who will be visiting the village this summer. In the beginning days, visionary Marija said that at first the visionaries thought the apparitions were for them, then they realized they were for the parish, then they realized they were for the whole world. A Friend of Medjugorje stated, “The world does not deserve such a grace of conversion. Our Lady revealed on October 1, 1981, that those who are not aware of the gift of Her appearance, as well as we who are, are not deserving of such a grace. Yet in God’s mercy we are granted gifts which are so great Our Lady says that if we comprehended them we would pray without ceasing.

Word spreads quickly throughout Medjugorje, and through hundreds of tributaries, when Ivan relays that his prayer group meeting will be open to pilgrims. Throughout the evening, individuals and small groups ascend Apparition Mountain and find a place to rest and pray awaiting Our Lady’s arrival. Here, a lone man is lost in his thoughts and prayers as he fingers his Rosary hours before the apparition tonight on the mountain. Pilgrims from around the world will fill in the spaces around him as the evening closes and night descends. All of mankind was represented before Our Lady in Her apparition tonight, with every longing of the heart. Our Lady came to receive them all.
Another Medjugorje sunset, and another day counting down to the time when Our Lady will no longer be with us. One cannot contemplate this without contemplating the great joy of Our Lady having and holding Jesus, Her knowing fully that with each day that passed, was one day less She would be able to have Him with Her on the earth. Do we savor these moments in gratitude to God for the great gift that Our Lady Herself can be with us? A Friend of Medjugorje said in a talk in 1999:
“It’s a hundred years from now, two hundred years from now, three hundred years from now, when people will be in awe of ‘what was it like to be there?’”
These pilgrims await the Mother who is sure to be here. In what age, in what time ever, have we had such a grace of knowing Our Lady will appear? She comes to bless, but also to give advice that will bring peace to our lives. Tonight, She says that there are some families who are in darkness. In an interview, Ivan was questioned about families. He said, “Our Lady wants everyone in the world to pray, especially for youth. She wants us to talk to youth, to guide them and bring them back to God.” When Ivan was asked what young people should do, he replied, “In my opinion, the question should be: ‘What should parents do?’ They should have more time for their children, to give them love and guidance. They should pray together with their children, communicate with their children to solve problems together as a family. Parents should limit the freedom of children. Children should only be as free as they are responsible. Parents are the best ones to judge how responsible their children are. Parents have the authority from God to set limits on their children’s freedom.” Our Lady’s advice is always practical, but not always easy. Through prayer we find the strength to put into practice the changes we must make to overcome the darkness in our families.
Remember in these days, the intentions of Our Lady for July 1-5, 2013. Be a part of this special event at Caritas, Alabama when we re-consecrate the United States of America back to God, through Our Lady, in Her presence. For more information visit here…
