Priests and Vocations…

Priests and Vocations…

May 30, 2016 A.D.

It was a beautiful, clear night in Medjugorje, as pilgrims from all over the world slowly gathered on top of Apparition Hill to join Ivan’s prayer group in singing and prayer in preparation for Our Lady’s apparition to Ivan. The singing began at about 8:45 p.m. At about 9:30 p.m., Ivan announced that we would be praying the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary. At the end of the Rosary, all grew quiet as Our Lady appeared to Ivan, around 10:00 p.m. The apparition lasted several minutes. The following is Ivan’s description of tonight’s apparition:

Also today, after the meeting together with Our Lady, I would like to bring closer to you and to describe tonight’s meeting to you. Also tonight Our Lady came to us joyful and happy and She greeted all of us, at the beginning, with Her motherly greeting, ‘Praised be Jesus my dear children.’ Then, for a longer while, she prayed over all of us here with Her arms extended, and then She prayed especially over the sick who are present here. Then Our Lady prayed especially for the priests and vocations in the Church. 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 of your needs, your intentions, your families and, in a special way, the sick. After that Our Lady continued to pray for awhile over all of us here and she left in that prayer, in an illuminated Sign of the Cross, with a greeting, Go in peace my dear children. I would like to emphasize especially that Our Lady today especially prayed for priests and vocations in the Church.

Tonight Our Lady prayed especially for priests and vocations. A Friend of Medjugorje tells us that good vocations come from good families. In a very real way tonight, Our Lady, the Mother, by Her praying for priests and vocations, is in reality praying for good families to spring up, to be renewed and to be the Church of the future. Our Lady’s children today, are the Church tomorrow.
