“There is no living Church without living families. There is no call to the priesthood, no vocations in the Church if there is no family prayer. In the family, God comes to call and He invites. This is where priests are born.” 1 – Ivan
Ivan, born May 25, 1965, was 16-years-old when the apparitions began, and typical of a boy his age, was not particularly pious. However, four days after the first apparitions his mother found a rosary in his pants pocket.2 The apparitions forged a complete change in him. Ivan is one of the three visionaries who continue to have daily apparitions and has been given nine secrets. When speaking to pilgrims, Ivan shares the valuable information Our Lady has given him to help man find God. Ivan’s answers to the pilgrims are truly insightful and inspired. He speaks with quiet confidence and often appears serious, though he has a wonderful sense of humor that comes through from time to time. He testifies to what he has been taught through the years by Our Lady without any anxiousness for people to believe what he says is true. His attitude seems to be that each has the choice to believe or not to believe, and eventually all will know the truth, one way or another.
Ivan entered the seminary shortly after the apparitions began but experienced great difficulties, not only academically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. “During the time I spent in the ‘Little Seminary’ in Dubrovnik, I suffered very much, truly, very much, because of my relations with my colleagues and professors. (Those in the seminary did not believe Ivan was seeing Our Lady and so he was constantly mocked and scorned.) Regarding all the problems I had then, Our Lady said, “Don’t worry. I will guide you through your life.” 3 Our Lady then asked Ivan if he wished Her to show him his future. “She revealed my future to me—until my death. My personal future is my secret. Only I know it. First, Our Lady asked me whether or not She should tell me. I’m sorry Our Lady revealed my personal future to me. [But] I’m content now and not afraid, because I know who guided me. Now, I look to the Mother who guides me, and I live in complete contentment.” 4
Our Lady has spoken and given instruction to Ivan about today’s family and the youth and those things that hurt and attack them.
In one interview, Ivan stated that Our Lady has asked him to write a book, with Her help, about the disease of materialism, which he says is destroying the beauty of God’s people and the world that He created. The book, he said, will be released “as soon as the Blessed Mother says.” 5 Interestingly enough, Ivan married an American girl from Massachusetts, Laureen Murphy, who is a former Miss Massachusetts. Laureen experienced conversion through Medjugorje, which eventually led to her meeting Ivan. Since their marriage, Ivan lives with his wife and children half of the year in the United States and half the year in Medjugorje. Living within the culture of America has, no doubt, given Ivan a greater understanding of the evils of materialism than if he had remained within the region and culture in which he was born.
Through the direction of Our Lady, Ivan, with Marija, started a prayer group of young people, who began meeting twice a week on Apparition Hill or Cross Mountain. During the prayer group meetings, Our Lady would normally appear to the visionaries giving messages and instructions. She asked them to offer their prayers for the fulfillment of her plans for the world. Although most refer to the prayer group as “Ivan’s prayer group,” Ivan states that it is Our Lady who is the leader of the group. Tens of thousands, if not millions of pilgrims have joined this small prayer group up on the mountains throughout the years. It is a great joy of Our Lady to see so many come. As in the message below, She has often stated how happy She is to see everyone gathered in such large numbers.
June 22, 1996
Those who come to Medjugorje while Ivan is there have the opportunity to be present at a prayer group meeting with Our Lady; an experience one remembers their entire life. The prayer group, which began on July 4, 1982, has been meeting for 27 years. Our Lady has said that every person in the world should belong to a prayer group. “Prayer groups,” Ivan said, “are a protection from the triumph of satan.” 6

Working diligently, showing up on time, & going the extra mile to ensure even, mis-addressed packages got delivered, it was surprising, when returning back to the Depot, my supervisor asked me to sign a form stating I’d acted “Insubordinate”. Wonderfuly, God took a refusal to sign this lie, & turned it into a huge affirmation of the Great Efficacy, Our Lady has achieved over the influence of the author of lies, satan. Getting home, raising this up, asking Our Lady for direction, a response, quietly voiced, in a text, explained the truth of the matter, but God in His Omnipotence, had a surprise for all of us at our Depot the following day. Not only did the plane get held up, causing the packages, we deliver to arrive late, God revealed His wonderful love. Not only was truth taken to heart by my employers, the event caused everyone to work in the same manner for which I’d been held as Insubordinate, just the day before. How amazing life is when we Trust Our Lady, Love Her Son & Pray
Yes covid surely brings a lot of trouble and a big problem for the whole world, but at the same time it is so amusing hearing and seeing things that many sources of evil stuffs collapse!
I can’t thank you enough for being, that roadway sign, to our True North! First thought…problems with social media…might explain why I haven’t been able to share any video you post on twitter. Anything I share, I have to come here and copy link or text. Second thought…Officer Anderson put his life on the line, serving our country in the military…1..he put his life on the line serving us here as PD…2..he put his life on the line…STANDING..for our constitutional rights..3!!! 4…he lost his job!!! It’s time to stand for liberty!! And, absolutely time to stand for God, The Spirit of Truth, and Our Lady and Her intentions! While already homeschooling youngest 3, my older 2 still in high school have been forced homeschoolers through this. I have to say that I am very greatful! Caos sometimes…but…our prayer time has grown and been consistent. Despite the spiritual battle, they are home! Conversations about God and the scripture reading of the day… Priceless gifts!
