Tonight Our Lady Said to Pray for Youth and Families

Ivan's Prayer Group in Medjugorje June 12, 2009

A beautiful view of the village of Medjugorje taken tonight, June 12, 2009 just a few hours before Our Lady’s apparition to Ivan during his prayer group meeting.

Ivan’s prayer group met at the top of Apparition Mountain on the evening of June 12, 2009. The day began in Medjugorje with a strong wind that became a breeze as afternoon arrived. By early evening the breeze vanished and it was quite still.

Groups of pilgrims gathered around the statue of Our Lady as the sun began to drop from the sky. Silence was observed even as darkness approached. The crowd of pilgrims seemed very respectful of the others they sat among as they quietly prayed the Rosary.

The prayer group began to play their instruments and pilgrims began to sing along with them at 8:40 p m. The Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary were prayed starting at 9:25 p m with Ave Maria sung in between the decades. All five decades were prayed and then the 7 Our Father’s, Hail Mary’s, and Glory Be’s were also prayed. Ivan prayed aloud the Hail Holy Queen in Croatian and as he finished Our Lady appeared under a beautiful star lit night. The apparition lasted eleven minutes.

Description of Ivan’s Apparition at Podbrdo on June 12, 2009


Tonight Our Lady came joyful and happy. She greeted us, as always, with Her Motherly greeting “Praised be Jesus my dear children.” Our Lady then prayed with Her hands extended over all of us present. She then blessed us with Her Motherly Blessing. She also blessed all the religious articles brought for blessing and then Our Lady prayed especially for all the sick present here tonight. Ivan recommended all of us, all of our needs, intentions, our families and especially the sick. Our Lady then prayed together with us especially for youth and families. Again, She called us to especially pray together with Her for youth and families! After, She prayed over us and left in an illuminated Sign of the Cross with a greeting, “Go in peace my dear children.”


Tonight, June 12, 2009, Our Lady came five minutes before 10:00 p.m. in the middle of the Hail Holy Queen. She once again asked for prayers for the youth and for families. So many years have passed with this same request from Our Lady on the mountain She first appeared on. Ivan and his prayer group were made up of youth when the prayer group started 27 years ago. Now most of them are married with children and families of their own. Old generations have past, new generations are here, and Our Lady is still coming from Heaven blessing generation after generation of families.

  1. I just came across your broadcast “Take Us to Jail” of November 19, 2020. I agree the lay have a pro-active role in the Church. I wrote to our new pastor about ending registration to participate indoor Mass. I told him I could not be a member of a parish that required reservations to be with God, worship Him, in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist. I asked him if he thought doing this in the first 300 years of the Church would’ve made sense. I said that were they so virulent in combatting the rumors of abuse which most certainly had been traveling around our Diocese as they were about a disease which has a 98.7% survival rate what a strong Church we would have. I told him how my mother reminded us often that the road to hell was paved with good intentions and was concerned as to how many paving stones he had added to that road. And I closed with a request to keep me in his prayers as he would be kept in mine. 3 days went by without even acknowledging receipt of the letter. On the 4th day I received my monthly envelope package. I sent an email telling the Church to remove me from its rolls and cancel my envelopes. To that I got a reply not to reconsider but to advise my request was fulfilled. So, they would rather be rid of someone who calls them on their apostasy than respond to the parishioner’s grave concerns. In a video by Bishop Barron he talked about emails and letters that he received regarding a statement he made. He spoke about how individuals called him a coward and how such action was calumny. It caused me to think that perhaps I speak out too strongly. But the calumny is not that he was called a coward or that any bishop earns the title “coward” by their public actions and words. The real calumny is the actions of some bishops which are in fact cowardly or done with a misguided notion or to avoid accountability or rocking the boat. The same is true of pastors, priests and the lay people.I practiced law for over 20 years and managed peoples investments. I was deeply involved in politics in my area at all levels, state and federal, since my undergraduate days. I know how thin the veneer of civilization is. I pray that these bishops wake up to the threat against their immortal souls for not only are they held accountable for not just their sins of commission but omissions and the souls led a stray on their account. What a frighteningly heavy cross they voluntarily assumed by accepting the position of bishop. Yet so many believe, explicitly or implicitly, only in the worldly, as if there were no Heaven and Hell for eternity.However, we cannot expect God to show mercy. He is not bound by His mercy to award it to you like a participation trophy in youth sports. He chooses to be bound by our acceptance or rejection of Him. We are held accountable individually for what we do or don’t do. In the United States, with all the resources available today respecting Church Doctrine and the ease of access, there will be no one who can say, “I messed up Lord because my bishop or my priest or my RCIA instructor…never told me and, therefore, I was led astray not of my own choice.” Where learning the Faith is easier than ever in my 60 short years, literally at your fingertips 24/7, we will be called to answer for our intentional ignorance, in that I have no doubt. I was a terrible sinner and still play the sinner well unfortunately. I pray that I make it to Purgatory. But just because I acted contrarily to God’s Desire doesn’t mean that what I say is voided. I knew the choices I made and where they fell. We all make choices. The worse choices we make are the ones that keep us in the favor of the “popular crowd” or the latest hashtag this or that. Ignorance is no defense under the law and it certainly, in our information age, will not be a defense for the Baptized. So, play your role. Write your letters to your bishop and pastor respecting your concerns. Be polite yet firm. Be rational yet uncompromising regarding God’s truth. Use strong language when you deem it appropriate but in a manner that is compassionate and not radio talk show mean. Ask them if they think you’re wrong and why they think that way. Appeal to their obligation to teach. How can this be…. when the Catechism of the Catholic Church says this? Be sincere in tone. Try to open a dialogue but don’t be frustrated if you get the kind of treatment I recently described at the opening. You played your role out towards your fate. The other side’s free-will-choice decides their fate. Always end by asking for their prayers and assuring them of yours. You cannot control the emotional response of another but you can establish boundaries against which others in looking at both responses can evaluate who acted most fairly, most like Christ.When I was in seminary, I had the great fortune to live with a wise priest whom I shared meals with and many discussions. He told me many important things but the one thing that sticks in my mind the most is his telling me, “Unless we pray for the sinner, the soil will never become sweet enough to grow saints.” We are all sinners. We are all human. We all make bad choices, some knowingly, some because we get bad input. When we realize the error of our choice, we must act to correct it and not look for people to blame. The opening Psalm in the Divine Office daily is Psalm 95. All priest and deacons are required to say the Office daily but lay people are permitted to pray it. So, the opening pep talk to priests and deacons every day ends with “Forty years I endured that generation. I said, ‘They are a people whose hearts go astray and they do not know My ways.’ So I swore in My anger, ‘They shall not enter into My rest.'” Certainly not a Knut Rockne style pregame pep talk to get you all fired up to face the world. But a very sobering one, especially if you’re like me looking back on over 40 years of being one whose heart went astray often. But one that certainly drives home the obligation of personal responsibility for knowing and understanding the Faith, God’s Ways. Play your role appropriately and you just might get to hear what we all hope to hear, “Well done my good and faithful servant.”Please pray for me and mine. Count on my prayers for you and yours. Peace, Bob

  2. I’m a long time listener and supporter of Caritas. I love the transcripts because I can easily search them and find a previously listened to topic. Why doesn’t this one have a transcript? I’ve been waiting for it since it came out. If you need help, please let me know.

  3. What a crisis of faith in our Church. Biden married one of his worker’s wives and brags about officiating at a [abominable] wedding and brags we will fund planned parenthood. So sad.

  4. Our Lady want us to be strong and full of love to act decisively. Deciding for God today could be scaring without faith but with faith it is a great honor to be chosen and face the darkness of the world with the truth in the heart. You talked today sooooo strongly and clear. Yes it is a very good idea to say – take me to jail. Otherwise they would not take us seriously. Tonight without mask let’s find out what’s on Our Lady’s plan.

  5. Trump victory or no victory, the state of the church and nation was created by design from 1940 to 2020. How do you destroy a nation? Destroy the priests formation which drives the holy Spirit out of the church, destroying the youth. Telling people to fight and go to jail, to what end? You are 50 years too late. They should start finding like minded souls. The multigenerational damage is done and satun’s bill is due. Millions will be murdered, 55 million in this reset and the churches will burn because of their links to the past. After the next Christian holacost, then the Catholic Church will appear to change their heart but in 80 years satun will do it again. What is outrageous to me is the innocent children that will suffer and the adults who knew better they will face the new Nazi leftist already brainwashed for Mass murder. Trump is not here to save the nation, like Hitler, he is here to feed the hate of the left which is destruction for Satun’s promise of Utopia. The New Age, LIE
