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.

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.
