Ivan: Medjugorje is important to mankind
People from all over the planet watched online when visionary Ivan Dragicevic’s apparition was live streamed from Vienna. “These apparitions are important to mankind” Ivan said before a total audience of several hundred thousand. Three messages to Ivan emphasize prayer and peace.
Medjugorje visionary Ivan Dragicevic struck historical chords when a live stream by MaryTV gave him an audience of people from all over the earth for his talk and public apparition on September 25 in St. Stephan’s Cathedral in Vienna, Austria.
“Our Mother is among us. These apparitions are important to mankind. Our Lady is calling us. She is calling us to decide for God and to put him in the first place in our lives. Open your hearts to God. He is there waiting for you. God loves us and wants us to be with Him” the visionary said.
The Virgin Mary gave this message in Vienna:
“Dear children, I call you also today, that you pray with your full heart and that you love each other. If there is not peace, pray and you will receive peace. You will receive it. Through you and your prayer peace will flow into the world. This is why, my little children, pray, pray, pray, because prayer can do miracles in mankind and in the world. I give thanks for everyone who lives prayer and accepts it. Thank you for responding to my call.”
“Our Lady never talks about herself. She always points us to Jesus” Ivan said in his preceding testimony, before summarizing the message of Medjugorje:
“Forgive. Confess. Pray with the heart. Pray with all your being. Pray with love. Pray with joy. Pray more. Pray pray pray. Not with your lips. Not mechanically. Have a special time for prayer and for God. Start to live prayer. Speak less and work more on yourself. Work on yourselves that you may be a sign of visible faith” Ivan said.
“The time in which we live is a time of great responsibility. For the evangelization of families and young people. Only when families start to pray together and make God first again can they heal. Dear friends, may it be that way” the visionary ended his talk in the Cathedral.
For Ivan, the day of prayer in Vienna marked the end of ten days on the road with seven public appearances in Italy plus the one in Austria. On September 20 in Laigueglia, Italy, the Virgin Mary gave this message:
“Dear children, also today, tonight in a special way, pray! Pray during this time of grace! Especially pray for my intentions, pray for peace. Your mother prays with you and intercedes with her Son for each of you. Dear children, this is the time of prayer! Thank you because also today you have responded to my call.”
Ivan’s ten days in Italy and Austria saw more dramatic messages from the Virgin Mary, compared to the ones he usually reports to have received. The need of prayer for peace was the dominant theme from September 15 in Turin through September 25 in Vienna.
Among the messages that were publically reported, only the one given in Porta Potenza Picena on September 21 deviated from this overall picture. That evening, the family was on Mary’s mind:
“Dear children, tonight in a special way I call you to pray for all my children who are away from their parents, for all my children who have been separated from my Son Jesus. Dear children, you too pray so that they come back to my Son Jesus, that they come back into their families, and they come back into my Church. I pray for all of you, and I intercede before my Son for each of you. Thank you, dear children, because also today you have responded to my call.”
