Peace in the World

Peace in the World

May 23, 2016 A.D.

From a Friend of Medjugorje

Tonight, Our Lady appeared to Ivan during his prayer group on top of Apparition Hill. Singing began around 9:00 p.m. and then Ivan announced that we would be praying the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary for peace in the world and peace in the families. Our Lady appeared to Ivan around 10:00 p.m. and the apparition lasted several minutes. The following is Ivan’s description of the apparition:

“Also today, I would like to describe a little of the meeting together with Our Lady. Also tonight Our Lady came to us very joyful and happy and She greeted all of us with Her motherly greeting, ‘Praised be Jesus my dear children.’ Then, for a while, with Her arms extended, She prayed over all of us here, and then, in a special way, She prayed over those of you who are sick present here. Then Our Lady especially prayed for peace in the world and for peace in the families. Then Our Lady blessed all of us with Her motherly blessing, and She also blessed everything you brought to be blessed. I also recommended all of you, all of your needs, your intentions, your families. In a special way, I recommended all of you sick who are present here and all those who have recommended themselves in a special way to be prayed for. After that Our Lady continued to pray over all of us here with Her arms extended. She then, for awhile, especially prayed for priests and vocations in the Church. She left in that prayer, in an illuminated Sign of the Cross, with a greeting, “Go in peace my dear children.”

Apparition Mountain, Medjugorje, Monday, May 23, 2016

The sun sets over the village of Medjugorje, while pilgrims begin to make their way up the rocky path to Apparition Mountain, where Our Lady appeared tonight to Ivan. It is significant that Ivan initiated the Rosary tonight praying for peace, and that during the apparition tonight, Our Lady prayed for peace in the world and peace in families. Peace in the world begins with peace in the family. Peace in the family begins with peace in the individual heart. Peace is received through prayer. Our Lady said on March 25, 1995:

“…There is no peace, little children, where there is no prayer…”

Begin to pray in your families, and receive peace that can be given to others, peace that will spread to the whole world.

Continue to keep us in your daily prayers. Everything that we are working on in these days is working towards the tsunami of grace that is coming for the whole world. Know that you are in our prayers as well.

With Love,

Friend of Medjugorje

  1. Mother Mary, I thank you for being so kind to us human beings on earth. You still wish to please your Beloved Son by way of meeting a few people on earth. I long to visit Medjugorje, a place that Our Lady has selected to visit six very devout Catholics. I pray that my wish would be granted before I am unable to travel

    I enjoy receiving these messages, they strengthen my hope and make me receive the graces that Our Mother Mary brings to us on apparitions. Her open arms brings warmth and forgiveness to us sinners. Thank you for praying for the sick, my son is sick, he is one of the receivers of your prayers. With the the hope that we have in Jesus name he will be healed.
