Ivanka: “I am the living witness that the life of the beyond exists …Our Lady also told me the future if the world, the future of the Church”

In those years the Madonna told me about her life, the future of the Church and the future of the world. I have written all these things and will be delivered to whom and when Our Lady will tell me. May 7, 1985 was the last daily appearance for me. That day the Madonna entrusted me with the 10th and last secret. During that apparition the Madonna stopped with me for an hour.

It was so difficult for me not to be able to see it every day. On May 7, 1985, Our Lady told me: “You have accomplished all that my Son expected of you”. He also told me that I would see it all my life once a year, on the day of the anniversary (June 25th). He then granted me an enormous gift and I am the living witness that the life of the beyond exists: during that apparition God and the Madonna allowed me to see my mother!

And in that meeting my mother told me: “My daughter, I am proud of you”. I simply say: God has shown us the way, it is up to us to choose this way to reach heaven, to eternity.After all these years I still ask God why he chose me, because I don’t feel different from others.

God has granted me a great, great gift, but also a very great responsibility, both before God and before men. I feel that in my life I can help Our Lady by transmitting and bearing witness to this message. Perhaps this is why Our Lady entrusted me with the task of praying for families.

Praised be Jesus Christ. I am happy to be with you today to be able to transmit and witness to what Our Lady asks of us. 22 years ago I was a simple, ordinary girl, like all the other little girls; but on June 24th 1981 my life changed.

I said to Mirjana: “Behold the Madonna!

That day my friend Mirjana and I went for a walk. When we were back, something caught my eye towards the hill and when I looked up, I saw the Mother of God on the hill. I told Mirjana: “Behold the Madonna!” Mirjana replied: “What a fool you are telling? But what a Madonna !? ”Because we had never heard of apparitions and the fact that Our Lady could appear.

When Mirjana replied that I was telling the stupid things, I remained silent and we continued to walk towards our homes. We met Milka, sister of Marija seer, who went to collect the sheep. As soon as he saw me, he asked me, “But Ivanka, what happened to you? You look strange to me! “

I told her what I saw and all three of us returned to the same place as before. When we got there, the two of them saw the same thing I had seen before. The Madonna was at 400, perhaps 600 meters away from us, on the hill and invited us with her hand to go to her, but we felt so much fear that we did not dare to walk towards her.

Meanwhile, Vicka also came and saw that something strange was happening to us. When we told her that we saw Madonna, Vicka ran away and, as she ran home, she met two boys, both named Ivan, and told them what was happening.

We did not dare to walk towards the Madonna.

The three of them then returned to us and saw what we had seen. Even though we were more numerous, we had the same fear and we did not dare to walk towards the Madonna.I don’t remember how much time we spent there. Then we walked towards our homes.

Moving from the first house in the village, we entered and we told what we saw and what we felt. I remember that the people in this house told us not to talk nonsense, to go home and not tell this to anyone. Instead I just got home, I told everything to my brother, my sister and my grandmother.

The grandmother told me this: “My daughter, make the sign of the cross and go to sleep.Who knows what is there on the hill, because this is not possible ”. That night was the longest night of my life and I asked myself a thousand questions about how such a thing was possible. The next day something prompted us to return to the same place and all the peasants of our hamlet and also of other hamlets came together with us.

My grandmother held my hand and didn’t want to leave me. But when we saw the light three times, something happened in us and we had to go up the hill. There was no path and we ran through the bushes and stones, as if something had brought us. In fact, the adults who ran after us told us they couldn’t keep up with us. When we arrived in front of the Madonna, I thought only of this: I could not imagine that such beauty could exist.

He has black hair, blue eyes

Many ask me to describe Our Lady, as you are. My words are too poor. It is something that must be experienced in order to understand it. Any word I speak, whatever I say, is not worthy of Our Lady. The Madonna always wears a gray dress, a white veil and has a crown of stars on her head. He has black hair, blue eyes and flies with his feet in a cloud.

As age seems to be 19, 20 or 21 years old. But that feeling of being close to her, that peace, that tranquility, it is possible to reach her also to each of you; every man can experience this and can do it in prayer. My mother died two months before the apparitions.

When I approached Our Lady, I was sure that it was really She and then I immediately asked her: “Madonna mia, where is my mother?” Our Lady replied: “She is with me”. The people around us realized something was happening to us and we saw something. When the next day, June 26th, we returned to the hill again, they advised us to bring the holy water with us and to spray it against the vision.

When Our Lady came, Vicka sprayed holy water on her, telling her: “If you are of God, stay with us; if you are not, go to us “. Then Our Lady smiled saying: “I am the Queen of Peace”. His first message was the message of peace: Peace, Conversion, Fasting and Penance. These are still the main messages of Medjugorje. From 1981 to 1985 I had daily appearances, every day.

Our Lady invites us to respect the sacrament of marriage

Our Lady invites us to respect the sacrament of marriage, to live in the Christian family;invites us to renew family prayer, to read the Bible, to go to Mass at least on Sundays;invites us to the Holy Confession once a month … I say: God asks us so little, even five minutes, to gather in the family and pray together.

Because satan wants to destroy our families, but with prayer we can overcome it. This year the Madonna entrusted me with this message:

“Dear children, I am always with you, do not be afraid. Open your heart so that peace and love can enter into it. Pray for peace. Peace. Peace”

Today I ask you: open your heart and bring this peace to your families, your cities and your nations. Only with our life, with our living witness, can we help Our Lady to carry out her projects. I always ask for your prayers: remember us who are here in your prayers and we will pray for you.
