Ivanka’s Annual Apparition

Ivanka’s Annual Apparition

On the twelfth anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions, Ivanka’s joyful anticipation of seeing Our Lady turned into a vision of horror, when Our Lady showed her in vivid detail an event that would take place in the future. An eyewitness described being in the home of Ivanka for this apparition:

“Ivanka came into the room in anticipation of Our Lady’s apparition with joy and a thirst to see Our Lady once again. During the apparition, a beautiful scene mirrored in her face and eyes of someone who is literally watching the fullness of love. But something happened as Ivanka’s continence moved to the extreme opposite of witnessing the fullness of satanic hatred. When the apparition ended, Ivanka jumped up, saying, ‘horrible, horrible…horrible scenes,’ all the while moving rapidly through the crowd of people. She ran out the door and disappeared down the trail that led to the Church.”

It was later revealed that the horrible scenes that Ivanka saw were detailed scenes of the future mass slaughter in Rwanda. It was a prophetic vision of a horrific event that would come to pass in April 1994 when more than 800,000 people were massacred. Our Lady gave no message to Ivanka this day, but in Marija’s apparition, Our Lady said in Her 25th message of the month:

“Dear children, these times are particular and therefore I am with you to love and protect you, to protect your hearts from satan…”

This was said in the midst of a brutalizing war still raging in their own country, yet Our Lady was also speaking of future events when saying “these times.”
