Ivan: The secrets will test the Church
When the Virgin Mary’s 10 prophetic secrets unfold, there will be a great trial for The Catholic Church, for the world and for people’s faith alike – and a little bit of it is already here, says Medjugorje seer Ivan Dragicevic who urges people to pray for Mary’s plans, even without knowing them.
Trials and tests will increase for The Catholic Church by the time when the Virgin Mary’s 10 prophetic secrets entrusted to the Medjugorje visionaries are being fulfilled. And a foretaste is already present, visionary Ivan Dragicevic told Radio Maria on August 14.
“Ivan, is it right to say that the time of the secrets will be a time of great trial for the Church and for the world?” Radio Maria director Fr. Livio Fanzaga asked.
“Absolutely so. I completely agree. With regard to the secrets we cannot say anything. I can only say that it is a very important time. In a particular way it is an important time for the Church. We should all pray for this” Ivan answered.
- Will it be a time of test of people’s faith?
“A little bit is already present now” the seer replied.
- And perhaps it is for this reason Pope Benedict XVI, inspired by Madonna, has announced “The Year of Faith”?
“I think the Pope is being guided directly by the Virgin Mary’s hand, and in this he certainly is in agreement with you. He guides his Church, and what happens here is being transmitted to the whole world.”
To have everything unfold in the best way possible, Ivan recommends and urges people to pray for the Virgin Mary’s intentions. He says he does not know the totality of the Virgin’s plan, but that this does not relieve neither him nor others from being co-responsible for its fulfillment:
“The Madonna has a plan for the world. Our Lady has a plan with the Church. Our Lady has a plan for this parish. But she invites us all to participate because each of us is a part of this plan. And Our Lady says, “I am with you, and with you I want to realize this plan. Therefore, decide for good, fight against sin and evil” Ivan told Radio Maria.
“You see, when we talk about this plan of the Madonna, I can say I do not know what this plan is exactly about, but that does not mean that I do not have to pray for the realization of this plan. We do not need to know everything, but we have to pray and seek to fulfill Our Lady’s requests. If the Madonna wants this, we must accept this request of Our Lady.”
