Radio host at Radio Maria, Father Livio is a tireless and well-known supporter of the historical events taking place at Medjugorje. What follows are excerpts from a short interview with visionary Ivan.
Visionary Ivan continues to see the Blessed Mother everyday. Father Livio: “These are the longest public appearances since the Marian apparitions existed. They are part of a plan that goes from Fatima to Medjugorje, as Our Lady herself said: “Medjugorje will complete what began in Fatima.”
The visionaries themselves say we are still at the beginning of this plan, partly realized with the conversion of Russia, already underway, thanks to the regained religious freedom
that country. For the most part, however, it has yet to be realized, because apostasy from faith is also taking place in the West, and at the same time the world, for the first time in human history, is at risk of self-destruction. So I would like to ask you Ivan, how can we save the world?
Ivan: The Queen of Peace would like to bring us back to the faith, so that we may realize the serious danger we are running and how important it is to counteract the evil that is spreading in the world. Our Lady sees that we are building a world without God. For this many people are unhappy and for this reason there is neither future nor eternal life for so many unbelievers. Self-destruction is a concrete possibility: man can destroy the planet on which he lives but Our Lady has come, as the Queen of Peace in order to preserve us. Our conversion and our prayers will serve to fight Satan and remove him from this world. To win this battle, it is necessary to oppose evil, right from the start, the shield of faith and the Word of God. Moreover, Our Lady has repeated to us many times that we are in serious danger!
Fr. Livio: I would like to say that Medjugorje is the biggest event in two thousand years of Christianity and losing this opportunity to have Our Lady as a guide on the spiritual path is unforgivable, but now, as you have said, there are signs that humanity is at the risk of self-destruction. Thank you Ivan for sharing with us what concerns of Our Lady. To emphasize that the danger of humanity’s ability to destroy itself is real, Our Lady warned of this possibility in a message dated January 25, 1991. Let us read together this powerful message. It is important that we be aware that Our Lady is showing us how we can protect ourselves. She says “God has sent me among you so that I may help you.”
Here is the message:
“Dear children! Today, like never before, I invite you to prayer. Let your prayer be a prayer for peace. Satan is strong and desires to destroy not only human life, but also nature and the planet on which you live. Therefore, dear children, pray that through prayer you can protect yourselves with God’s blessing of peace. God has sent me among you so that I may help you. If you so wish, grasp for the rosary. Even the rosary alone can work miracles in the world and in your lives. I bless you and I remain with you for as long as it is God’s will. Thank you for not betraying my presence here and I thank you because your response is serving the good and the peace. ”
Bless. Amen. Amen. Ave Maria.
