Our Lady Tells Us to Decide For Her Son

 

Friday June 17, 2011 A.D.

 

It was a beautiful evening in Medjugorje. Many pilgrims began gathering before 7:00 p.m. and a steady stream continued right up until the apparition. Those who arrived early, experienced the peacefulness of the evening and witnessed a beautiful sunset. As apparition time approached, the sky slowly began to fill up with stars. The singing began around 8:45 p.m. and after the singing a Rosary was prayed in preparation for Our Lady’s apparition. By the time Our Lady appeared to Ivan at around 10:00 p.m., there were thousands of pilgrims on the mountain, quietly praying and waiting for Our Lady. Our Lady appeared around 10:00 p.m. and the apparition lasted several minutes. The following is Ivan’s description of the apparition.

 

Today, as always, after every meeting with Our Lady, I desire to also describe to you what is the most important from tonight’s meeting. 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.” Our Lady then for a while, with Her arms extended, prayed over all of us here. She prayed over the sick present. Our Lady then said:

“Dear children, also today the Mother calls you with love: decide for my Son, set out together with Him, follow my messages. Especially through these upcoming days, renew my messages in your families. Pray, dear children, for my Son to be born in your hearts and in your families. Know, dear children, that the Mother prays for you and loves you with a Motherly love. Therefore, persevere. Thank you, also today, dear children, for having responded to my call.”

 

Then Our Lady blessed us all with Her Motherly blessing and blessed the religious articles brought for blessing. I recommended all of you, your needs, your intentions, your families and especially all the sick present. Then a private conversation followed between us, which remains between us only. Our Lady then especially prayed for peace, for peace in our hearts and for peace in the families. She then left in that prayer, in an illuminated Sign of the Cross with a greeting, “Go in peace, my dear children.”

Sunset in Medjugorje

The sky turns to fire in a beautiful sunset while pilgrims waited for Our Lady to come to Her mountain tonight, June 17, 2011, during Ivan’s prayer group apparition. The flow of pilgrims coming to and going from Medjugorje follow a certain pattern. Many have just left, while it is still a few days early for those who will be attending the 30th anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions. So, at this moment the village is not so crowded with pilgrims. However, every day from here, the buses will be coming in nonstop. There is no open hotel room in the village, nor in the surrounding area. It will be a very beautiful celebration with Our Lady who always is so happy to have such large numbers coming to Medjugorje. Every year many of the villagers, including the visionaries, begin a novena to Our Lady, in which they climb Apparition Hill sometime during the day, early morning, or late evening. It begins on June 15th and ends on June 23rd, the eve of the Feast of St. John the Baptist. Apparition Mountain is almost never empty during these special anniversary days. There seems to be always someone on the mountain at all hours of the day and night in an unbroken chain of prayer. Let us go there ourselves, in spirit, to be with Our Lady on Her mountain as we welcome these days of Her anniversary.

 

Crowds at Ivan's Prayer Group June 17, 2011

Slowly, as night falls, Our Lady’s image grows brighter on Apparition Mountain as pilgrims await Her coming.

 

Crowds at Ivan's Prayer Group June 17, 2011

Just below Our Lady’s statue, Ivan’s prayer group is gathered, with Ivan barely seen in a black t-shirt. When Our Lady comes, She raises Her hands over everyone gathered and prays over them. She has intentions for each person present that She is praying for. When Our Lady appeared to Marija in Birmingham in 1988-1989, She often requested in Her messages that we pray for Her intentions. She said:
 

November 26, 1988

“I ask you once again to pray. Especially pray for my intentions. If you pray for my intentions, I will be glorified through you. All your prayers are going to help you through my hands.”
 

What a beautiful gift that we can prayer for ourselves and our loved ones simply by praying for Our Lady’s intentions to be fulfilled in our lives. Those on the mountain tonight can, for the rest of their lives, place themselves back in this spot under Our Lady’s mantle and say to Our Lady in prayer, “Mother, whatever Your intentions were that You prayed for me the night of June 17, 2011, when I was on Your mountain with You, I pray now that they will be fulfilled in my life.” A week from now, a month from now, ten years from now, at the hour of your death…this can be your prayer. If you’ve been under the hands of Our Lady in an apparition in these past 30 years, we invite you to remember that day, that moment, and say this prayer to Our Lady. But, Our Lady has intentions for all of us, not only those who have had the blessing to be with Her in an apparition. We are all blessed to be living in Our Lady’s time.

  1. Noting those, doomed to go back on the street, I remember, how Our Lady saved me from Death & Sheol, back in 2006, when I lived out of a closet, at a company, I couldn’t make enough money at as a salesman. Now after well over 100 different jobs in my lifetime, It’s difficult looking forward to starting work at any new one. Every interview now becomes an occasion to wonder what; problem, liability, issue or illegality, exists, which will only come up after I’ve been hired. No perfect individual, time’s caught up with me, where even now as a, “New Creation in Christ,” I’ve left halfway decent jobs recently on principles alone. My Dad thought I quit to receive unemployment, not believing at 1st, these companies paid my benefits, instead of my suing them, like most people would, when wronged. Thinking God wanted me to sue instead after being wronged again, Our Lady’s messages Try To Teach Me, I’ve never given the mercy She’s requiring of me. Please Pray, This is a very large Cross to Bear

  4. Incredibly awesome. What a wonderful gift to all of us. This brings back beautiful memories from years ago when I had the opportunity to travel to Medugorje. We are so blessed to have a Mother that loves us so much; She has never given up on us. Thank you Mother Mary for leading us to Your Son Jesus. I lift up my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to you. On this day I hand them over to you. I love you sweet Mother Mary.

  5. I pray for and with you Our Lady, that through you and your Son Jesus Christ, the world and all of us will know the peace I give you, peace I leave you. My spirit has made the trip to you, my body could not, delivered my pray for you. Jenelle in Nebraska, USA

  7. Thank you Blessed Mother Mary,for your caring and love always reminding us about prayer,for each one of us.Every messages you give and work you do to the world now,make me feel very near to you.Help me and my family to pray,grow in love with you and your Son JESUS.

  8. Your description of Ivans apparition reminds me of when I was at his 4th June apparition, only a few weeks ago. It was such a wonderful grace filled evening that I can’t even put it into words. I was at Blue Cross and we all looked up to the top of the hill, knowing that our Mother was with us and that She knew we were there. During the apparition time, I saw a shooting star….the first time I have ever seen one. I like to think it was a little gift from my Heavenly Mother.

  9. Isn’t it wonderful to know that Our Lady loves us so much? I always pray so much to Our Lady.I have never been to Medjugorje but I appreciate your messages.Thanks and let’s always pray for each other.

    Such a strong message for Ivan’s Prayer Group- DECIDE for MY SON! Especially through these UPCOMING DAYS! Our Lady has never used this phrasing (upcomin days) before in any of the Messages I can find. My heart was greatly pierced when I read this- any thoughts on this? And my Spirit is greatly concerned over this warning-any thoughts?

    Thank you for the reminder of the words of prayer that we can ask Our Lady to be accomplished in each of us. Cheryl

  12. In the name of Our Lady and our Lord -you do a good work. I enjoy reading your articles, messages etc. Every day I pray – Vatican to release the good news. When is the good news will be. Will there be a good news on the 25th June 2011 when we all celebrate the 30th anniversary? From Our Lady to Ivan – the last message our Lady is asking us to pray for the next few days. Are you praying for this? I cant wait for that day!!
