Two young brother praying in front of St. James Church

Medjugorje visionary, Ivan, was given special instructions from Our Lady concerning the youth and family. Ivan is married and the father of four children and has much to say about family life from what he has learned from Our Lady and from his own personal experience. On May 24, 2011, he shared the following with thousands of pilgrims in Medjugorje.

“…Mother comes. She wants to show us, She wants to lead us, encourage us. We cannot expect that the world gets better, that mankind does better if we do not place God in the very first place in our lives. We cannot expect to have more priests in our Church, to have more vocations in our Church, if we do not bring the prayer back into our families, because God is calling in the family, within the family. The priest is born through the family prayer, that is where God is calling. That is why Our Lady invites us so often to pray. Mother comes to us. She wants to lift up this sinful world. She is a Mother who is worried about our salvation…”
