Today Our Lady appeared to Ivan at the Blue Cross during his prayer group. Pilgrims started arriving at the Blue Cross before 6:00 p.m. and continued to arrive up until apparition time. Small groups of pilgrims of different languages found quiet spots nearby and prayed and sang in their own language until the prayer group began singing around 8:30 p.m. There was singing for the next hour, until 9:30 p.m. when Ivan announced that we would be praying the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary in preparation for Our Lady coming. Our Lady appeared to Ivan at a little after 10:00 p.m. and the apparition lasted around 8 minutes. The following is Ivan’s description of the apparition:
“Also today Our Lady came to us happy and joyful. At the beginning, She greeted all of us with Her Motherly greeting, ‘Praised be Jesus my dear children.’ After that She extended Her arms and prayed over all of us for a while. She then said:
Then Our Lady blessed all of us with Her Motherly blessing, and She also blessed everything you brought to be blessed. I also recommended all of you, all of your needs, your intentions, and your families, and especially the sick. After that Our Lady continued to pray for peace for a while and then left in that prayer, in an illuminated Sign of the Cross, with a greeting, ‘Go in peace my dear children.’”

Medjugorje is a constant ebb and flow of pilgrims, new pilgrims coming in while others flow out beginning the journey back to their homes around the world. Tonight, in Medjugorje, pilgrims began gathering in the early evening at the Blue Cross to await Our Lady who would appear during Ivan’s prayer group apparition. Our Lady gives peace in the heart to those who seek it in Medjugorje. Every person who receives it understands, in varying degrees, that to keep that peace, one must make a decision for daily conversion, putting Our Lady’s messages into their daily lives. Once peace is established in a heart, it is possible to begin the process of establishing peace in the family. Peace then begins to spread throughout the world, one family at a time. This is the plan of Our Lady.

The village of Medjugorje, with St. James Church seen in the middle, was bathed in soft pastels this evening, August 11, 2014. Our Lady said in 1984-85:
A Friend of Medjugorje wrote 23 years ago:
“Medjugorje is the main event to which all other apparitions have led. The following are three main reasons why it is said that it is a gross error to think that Medjugorje is just another apparition:
1. Our Lady will give messages in Medjugorje like never before in history.
2. They are the longest and most frequent apparitions ever.
3. They are the last on earth.
A young family stands just below the Blue Cross this evening, moved by the beauty of the evening sky. Think of the expense this family sacrificed to come to Medjugorje. For the cost of this pilgrimage, they could have gone anywhere for a nice family vacation filled with entertainment and relaxation. Yet, it was to Medjugorje that they came, seeking eternal wealth for themselves and their children. Our Lady calls them and us all to witness Her love to the world. How are we to do this? A Friend of Medjugorje says:
“We must realize that we exist first to live the message and spread it. We spread it through the authority of having the truth. Giving and spreading authoritative truth comes through the living of the message. We, then, are authentic, real and convicting. You can’t spread something with success if you aren’t living it…You have to live what you say. You have to do what you say. And you have to say what you mean.”
Cross Mountain begins to fade in the shadows as night draws near in Medjugorje, but even at night when the Cross cannot be easily seen, the presence and the power of the Cross is felt and remembered.
