There was an apparition of Our Lady to Ivan tonight during his prayer group meeting on Appariton Mountain. After the apparition of Our Lady on Apparition Mountain at about 10:00 p.m., June 25, 2012, Ivan said:
“Today, as always, after every meeting with Our Lady, I desire to describe to you what is the most important. Also today Our Lady came very joyful and happy and at the beginning, as always She greeted us all with Her Motherly greeting, ‘Praised be Jesus, my dear children.’ Then, for a longer time, with Her arms extended, She prayed over all of us here. Then She blessed us all with Her Motherly blessing and also blessed everything you brought for a blessing. Then I recommended all of you, all your needs, all your intentions, all your families and especially all of you here who are sick. Then Our Lady prayed over the sick present here. She continued to pray over all of us and in that prayer left in an illuminated Sign of the Cross with a greeting, ‘Go in peace, my children.’
“As you know, several hours ago Our Lady gave a message for the whole world. Let us listen to the message which Our Lady directed to all of us.”
Our Lady’s message given earlier on June 25, 2012:
Our Lady continues, after 31 years, to draw incredibly large crowds for Her Anniversary of the apparitions. The entire landscape around St. James Church was covered with people. A great many of them were Croatians, from not only neighboring villages, but neighboring countries as well. The great numbers present at the Mass, filled the top of Apparition Mountain just a few hours later, to be present for the apparition of Our Lady during visionary Ivan’s prayer group meeting.
During the Rosary leading up to the apparition, a great commotion was caused by several different demoniacs who suddenly began, about the same time, making chilling noises even though they were not in the same location. Barking, moaning, crying and screaming sounds startled many on the mountain and a great outcry resulted among the pilgrims to such an extent that a member of Ivan’s prayer group had to interrupt the Rosary two different times to settle down the crowd. Despite the agitation, when the apparition began at around 10:00 p.m., there was silence and peace. Half way through the lengthy apparition, deep sobbing could be heard, and then more sobbing from another area on the mountain. It came from the same areas that the demoniacs had just been heard. One felt great pity for such suffering souls.
The 31st Anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions in Medjugorje ended on the Mountain of Apparitions where it all began 31 years ago. Thousands and thousands of people had climbed the mountain to be with Our Lady tonight, gathered under a starry sky. The mountain itself took on the appearance of a starry sky with all the twinkling flashlights that dotted the pathways once people had come down and looked back at it while walking home through the fields.
The village of Medjugorje can be seen in the backdrop of the pilgrims seated on Apparition Mountain awaiting the grace to be with Our Lady for tonight’s apparition. In the early evening hours there are still spaces for people to squeeze into, but once night falls, it becomes increasingly difficult for latecomers to find an empty spot. It is always an amazing site to see this mountain covered with people, despite the difficulty posed by the heat, the darkness of the night, and the physical handicaps. What propels them to make this climb? They do it simply out of love for Our Lady, as Her Apostles, in this time of grace.
“We must never rest, because he who created evil never does. We must never cool off to Our Lady’s messages, because it is to his evil consolation and design for those who once followed Our Lady to quit living Her messages or at least become lukewarm, or no longer be enthusiastic about Our Lady’s messages and plans of Medjugorje. Spanning through all of history, since the death of the last Apostle, there is no greater time to be living. Our Lady has called us to be “Apostles of Love.”

Her words tell us that this is the time of grace.”
