Tonight, April 25, 2014, Our Lady appeared to Ivan at the Blue Cross at 10:00 p.m. during his prayer group meeting. Under a cloudy sky, thousands of pilgrims from all over the world came to be in Our Lady’s presence. The singing began around 8:30 p.m. Then at about 9:15 p.m., the Rosary was begun, with two mysteries being said. Our Lady appeared to Ivan around 10:00 p.m. and the apparition lasted several minutes.
After the apparition to Ivan on April 25, 2014 at the Blue Cross at 10:00 p.m. Ivan said:
“Tonight I would like to describe also to you what is the most from tonight’s meeting with Our Lady.
“Also tonight Our Lady came to us joyful and happy and at the beginning, as always, She greeted all of us with Her Motherly greeting, ‘Praised be Jesus my dear children.’ Then Our Lady, with Her arms extended, prayed over all of us here for a longer time. Then She prayed especially over the sick present here, and then She said:
“Then Our Lady blessed all of us with Her Motherly blessing, and She also blessed everything you brought to be blessed.
“Then I recommended all of you, all your needs, your intentions, your families and in a special way, all of you sick and all the priests present. After that Our Lady continued to pray and left in that prayer, in an illuminated Sign of the Cross, with a greeting, ‘Go in peace my dear children.’
“This is what would be the most important from tonight’s meeting.”
Tonight, these pilgrims were preparing in prayer for Our Lady’s apparition to Ivan. It is not often that Our Lady gives a message during Ivan’s prayer group on the same day as the 25th message, and when She does, it is with a heightened significance that we should pay attention. A Friend of Medjugorje tells us, that our preparation for Her presence each day is the defining factor of our future:
“Even for those who, through the years, followed Our Lady, many fail to stop in their tracks and reorder their lives to allow themselves to be completely captivated and led by the most beautiful woman God has ever created. To be chosen by Our Lady and to disregard or not fulfill Her call, will be detrimental to your future with the dark factual reality of future life on earth. The reality will hit hard those hearts, of what was not recognized in the time of special grace. For it will be made known throughout the world, by God Himself, that creation’s best was not recognized by those who never stopped to reflect and listen to the sweetest words the world has ever heard of a mother.”
Our Lady said today through Ivan that there is a lack of peace in man’s heart. Peace begins in the individual heart, and then extends to the family. Families not praying, will not be in peace, and it is these that the most unfortunate things happen, by broken homes, broken marriages, broken children, and a broken world. Our Lady said on February 14, 1985:
“…Every family must pray family prayer and read the Bible!“
It is often that in Medjugorje, the late sunset accompanies Ivan’s apparitions on the mountain. Is it perhaps that Our Lady has chosen this place to also show us that Her presence is light that keeps away the darkness? Her words today tell us that in the world there is much lack of peace. She has come to create that peace that so many long for in the world – but it begins in man’s heart, not by government programs, treaties or presidents. Our Lady tells us how peace begins:
