A beautiful sunset behind the distant mountains and warm, gentle breezes preceded Our Lady’s arrival tonight, Monday August 12, 2013. A sky full of stars and a crescent moon rising over Cross Mountain appeared as the day gave way to night. Pilgrims spread themselves all around the Blue Cross and readied their hearts for Our Lady with the rosary led by Ivan’s prayer group. The apparition lasted approximately 8 minutes. Our Lady appeared to Ivan around 10:00 p.m. tonight, August 12, 2013, during his prayer group meeting at the Blue Cross. The following is Ivan’s description of the apparition:
“Tonight I would like to describe tonight’s meeting with Our Lady and what is the most important. It is always difficult to describe the meeting with Our Lady in words and to find the right words – to be able to express everything in these words – so I will use the words which I have to briefly describe to you.
“Also tonight Our Lady came to us very joyful and happy and at the beginning, She greeted all of us with Her Motherly greeting, ‘Praised be Jesus my dear children.’ Then She extended Her arms over all of us and for a longer time prayed. Then She prayed especially over the sick present here, and then She blessed all of us with Her Motherly blessing, and She also blessed everything you brought to be blessed. Then Our Lady continued especially to pray for a longer time for peace in the world and peace in the families.
“Then I recommended all of you, all your needs, your intentions, your families and in a special way, all of you sick present. After that Our Lady prayed especially for peace and left in that prayer, in an illuminated Sign of the Cross, with a greeting, ‘Go in peace my dear children.’
“This is what would be the most important from tonight’s meeting. There was no special message tonight. Our Lady tonight, for a long time, especially prayed for peace in the families and peace in the world. Thank you.”

Each sunset is one less day with Our Lady. In his writing, “Entering a New Time,” A Friend of Medjugorje stated:
“We have not comprehended the magnitude of the gift God is giving us through the invitation Our Lady now offers us. It is a great gift which we do not deserve. Our Lady said:

Our Lady has been saying “pray for peace” throughout the past few months. To live in our world today, we are in need of this peace from Our Lady, the Queen of Peace. A Friend of Medjugorje has written:
“We have learned, here in the Community of Caritas, that a tremendous bargain is being offered to the world and that is cashing in our worthless opinions for God’s offer of His thoughts, conveyed through Our Lady’s messages. Once we change our opinions and thoughts to that of the messages, we suddenly have real strength to change, not just situations, but the whole world. All the world offers us is the option to write to our editors or call the radio talk shows or go vote. We feel a real strength here not because we are ‘somebody,’ but because God ‘is.’ Anyone loyal to His precepts and plans will have a ‘might’ which the world cannot give through status, position, political office, etc.
