Our Lady Prays for the Family

Our Lady Prays for the Family

June 26, 2015 A.D.

Several thousand pilgrims gathered on the top of Apparition Mountain tonight to be in the presence of Our Lady during Her apparition to Ivan. The air was cool and massive clouds passing by slowly partially blocked out the sun as it set beautifully below the horizon. Our Lady appeared to Ivan a little before 10:00 p.m. and the apparition lasted approximately 10 minutes. Following is Ivan’s description of the apparition:

“Also today, as every day after the meeting together with Our Lady, I would also like to transmit to you what is the most important from tonight’s meeting with Our Lady. Also tonight Our Lady came to us joyful and happy and at the beginning, She greeted all of us with Her Motherly greeting, ‘Praised be Jesus, my dear children.’ Then, Our Lady for a long time prayed especially over all of you sick who are present here, and then She prayed over all of us. Afterwards, Our Lady especially tonight prayed for families, for the youth, and in a special way for holiness in the family.

“Then Our Lady blessed all of us with Her Motherly blessing, and She also blessed everything you brought to be blessed. Also I recommended all of you, all of your needs, your intentions, your families and everything you carry in your hearts. After that Our Lady continued to pray over all of us here and then left in that prayer, in an illuminated Sign of the Cross, with a greeting, ‘Go in peace my dear children.’

“I would especially like to emphasize that tonight Our Lady for a longer time especially prayed for families, for holiness of families and the youth. We know that yesterday Our Lady turned to all of us with a message, and the message of yesterday is the most recent message which we need to accept and live. Thank you.”

In light of Our Lady’s message yesterday when She said, “…may God be your tomorrow and not war…” and in light of today’s decision of the U.S. Supreme Court to legalize perverted abominable false civil unions, masking them as marriage, it is significant that tonight Our Lady prayed for the family, and for holiness in the family. War starts in the family. When God is not the tomorrow of the family, when the family is degraded and degradated, prejudiced and persecuted, when it is redefined and rearranged, destroyed and disassembled, then war is on the horizon. War – not by God’s doing, but by man’s rejection of God’s protection.

Meditate, reason, think, that when the president of the United States praises today’s Supreme Court decision against God’s law by saying that it was, “justice that arrives like a thunderbolt,” then make no mistake that it will come to pass. His words are a prophecy. It makes no difference whether he meant those words in this way. Because of the position of authority he sits in, justice will arrive like a thunderbolt. It is even more important in these days to be striving for holiness, to be united with Our Lady in prayer, and to be fighting evil.

Picture from the Apparition Today

Medjugorje, June 26, 2015

A beautiful pastel painted sky displays the majestic Hand of God in His creation tonight, June 26, 2015, as pilgrims awaited Our Lady on top of Apparition Mountain. A Friend of Medjugorje came to Medjugorje in the early 1990’s while the war was still going on. He tells the story of sitting on top of Apparition Mountain, alone. Everything was still. Everything was at peace. From his vantage point, he watched a fighter jet silently streak across the sky. Moments later, after the jet was no longer in view, he heard an explosion and realized that the jet had released a bomb over Mostar, just 30 minutes away. The peace he felt in his heart on top of Apparition Mountain was not disturbed even though he saw the evidence of war all around him. The presence of Our Lady was felt so strongly that as Scripture says, there was “a peace that passes all understanding.”

In our world today, we see a storm rising in the distance. After the decision by the U.S. Supreme Court today, we know a line has been crossed. Though Our Lady gave no words tonight to Ivan, She prayed for families, for holiness in the family and for the youth. It is the family and children who are under attack by this decision. Our Lady’s words, on the eve of the announcement of this decision, warns us of a coming war:

“…Little children, may God be your tomorrow and not war and lack of peace; not sorrow but joy and peace must begin to reign in the heart of every person – but without God you will never find peace. Therefore, little children, return to God and to prayer so that your heart may sing with joy…”

Though the decision made today has rocked the United States, and we see the same going on around the world, looking at the beautiful sky of Medjugorje, peace is stronger than fear. Our Lady is with us. We can feel Her strength, Her courage, Her confidence, Her unbendedness…and Her love for our sad world. It’s enough to make your heart want to sing with joy.

Oh, beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountains majesty
Above the fruited plain…
…America! America! May God thy gold refine,
Till all success be nobleness, And ev’ry gain Divine

America, until every heart’s success be nobleness, God will refine…

  1. My heart is so close to Jesus and Mary yet everything that is happening in this country and world that goes against truth makes me so sick inside. Please pray that I can feel that joy in my heart. It is hard to live each day just wondering what is to come for ourselves, children and grandchildren. I feel tired to fight these battles, tired of trying to change hearts to think more towards God. God help us all. Hello Mr to have that joy and peace within.

    I am saddened and cannot believe and understand how that could have happened? I am afraid of what is to come. In her message to pray for families and the youth is what is desperately needed. They have perverted the word love into something that is not right and the youth believe it. My grandchildren believe it, if. One says that it is wrong, right away one is accused of hating and discriminating against [abominables]? I never thought I’d ever see what is happening to the sacrament of marriage, I’ve been married to the same man for 43 years and now I have to justify myself. I just want to cry. I really need to pray for them for the youth that are believing that.

    I thank with all my humble and poor heart our mother presence to give us love, peace and hope; her presence in Medjugorje is for me faith, a great faith which helps me to believe that the poorest of this world will get justice, will stay out of pervertion and will give their hearts to Jesus before is too late. Lovely Mary thank you for holding my heart and do not let us dismay these days. Sister Elizabeth Paz

  4. Loved the beautiful lavendar clouds/sunset photo you enclosed to Ivan’s message. It for me, is like a miracle sign and gave me peace. I am a photographer and that was a special image. I pray for all those who have been misled by false teachings and the media and sinful entertainers. I pray the Holy SPirit will inflame their minds with his Truth and forgive us who did not teach our own children the basis of our faith and religion. I pray especially for paece in the Middle East, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, & Pakistan & Turkey. I pray that the Supreme Court of America will be dissolved and destroyed for all the sins they have upheld.

  5. Pray to stay strong. Lets look to our Holy pope for guidence, for I am confident the Holy Spirit will work through him to turn our discouragement.

    Praise Be Jesus, like Our Lady said!!! What happened to one nation UNDER GOD? ??????? WE ALL NEED TO PRAY FOR MERCY. WE ALL NEED TO INTERCEDE FOR THIS NATION & IT’S PEOPLE FOR IT HAS STRAYED FROM WHAT OUR FOUNDING FATHERS ACHIEVED FOR all of us so very many years ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. The world has never been so sinful when they make it out that good is evil and evil is good and the world is rebelling against not only the laws of nature but the law of GOD it is time to refresh ourselves with what OUR MOTHER told the world in LA SALETTE/FATIMA/GARABANDAL as all is unfolding in front of our very eyes, OUR LADY has been asking our shepherds to stay close to her for years listen to what OUR LORD REVEALED TO POPE LEO 13 for a better understanding of what is happening now and what is about to happen in the world. GOD BLESS.

    Now, as never before, we must pray, pray, pray! Say the rosary as often as you can every day. It’s easy to say the rosary/rosaries while taking a daily walk. I walk about 3 miles per day (3 to 5 days a week) and found out that it’s rather enjoyable to say 2 rosaries within 45 minutes. We cannot let Mary down. She loves us and will help us in every way possible! Spend many holy hours in adoration with Jesus! The time is at hand!!!!!

  9. This writing has given me a new fortitude to continue to battle evil. Fighting for truth that can only come from God. Thank you for putting into words what I feel so deeply in my heart. Blessed Mother help us. Your devoted daughter Susan

  10. God made the woman from Adams rib. And said be fruitful and multiply. It is a terrible thing that happened. May God have mercy on us and help our children.Amen.

  11. May the Mercy of God be upon as we put our trust in Him. We must keep praying for God’s will to be done and not give up hope.

  12. Honour your father and your mother. This commandment forms the basis of every family. God’s law is not honour your mother and your mother, or your father and your father, this American ruling is so wrong, we need much prayer if a country turns its back on God’s commandments, God open our eyes to see your ways.

    Thank you so much for being the mediators to something so Divine and tender as Our Lady’s mission and effort. I consider this as a life time privelige to be a benefactor of something as Beautiful as this. Jesus and His Mother over us Thank you Dear Father in Heaven for all your works and please accept my prayers for your benefit and my Family’s God Bless You All. Alfonso R. Ballesteros ( A Foot Soldier of Your’s )

  14. What has our nation come to…as goes the family, so goes goes the world. 5 versus 4…..one vote made the difference & how sad; our nation has been given over to it%u2019s depraved nature; to it lack of prayerfulness..we neglected our prayers thinking that someone somewhere else was praying enough for all of us. Belovedd Caritas; forgive me for not acting fast enough to contact Florida supreme court; for not praying my rosary daily; for relaxing my Wednesday and Friday fasting…for not stoping to honor Our Lady%u2019s apparition time on a regular basis…for being a slacker in general…Our Lady%u2019s school of prayer (except for work hours) adoration. For the sake His sorrowful passion, may He have mercy on Us and on the whole world. Caritas and Friend of Medjugorje…thank you for your Guidance and your prayers and keeping us updated with Medjugorje. Your insight into what is happening today is being played out in real lifestate today…thank goodness we know how the story ends! !

  15. God has been mocked today by the president..Barack Obama and the Supreme Court….’justice that arrives like a thunderbolt’…quoted from the president’s speech today…..Barack Obama and his Supreme Court justices will think ‘justice that arrives like a thunderbolt!’ I have prayed for weeks that this decision would not be made…knowing that it probably would in reality happen….with those words from this president he has cursed this nation…the good and the bad into complete and utter destruction…GOD will not be mocked! with a heavy tearful heart and rosary in hand, I beg Our Father’s mercy on us…as we who so love HIM…continue to pray, repent and make acts of reparation.

  16. Oh how terrible the news!!! What bad news. I hope God’s justice come soon. This world needs His justice. To not live in the truth and love of God is to have a degeneration which calls God to bring down His arm of justice. Become prayer warriors for the truth!!! We need to fight all this false love and be standing up for the truth of the sanctity of marriage!!!

    Thank you Our Lady for Your message that fateful night there at the Apparition Hill struck me deeply. And I thank you for that opportunity to be invited during that day as I was fortunate to be there that very day. Thank you for bringing all our humble petitions to your SON and for blessing us all who were there that extended even to our own families even if they were not actually present.

  18. M. Raphael Vantine

    Thank you dear Blessed Mother Mary for staying with us during these frightening times for us, your children. We need your presence, your Love, your words of encouragement and guidance! “Holy Mary, Mother of God, Pray for us sinners, spread the effect of Thy Flame of Love over all of humanity, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
