Last night, Saturday 5th August, Ivan and his prayer group and pilgrims met on Apparition Hill, for the encounter with Our Lady. Thousands gathered on the Hill to receive Our Lady’s graces and blessings, they prepared by praying the Holy Rosary. Our Lady appeared at approximately 10.00pm.  Silence fell as all united in prayer with Our Lady while the apparition was occurring, which lasted about 12 minutes.


After the Apparition Ivan said that he would like to describe what is most important from the encounter with Our Lady. He said. Our Lady came Joyful and happy and she greeted everyone with Her Motherly greeting ‘Praised be Jesus my dear children.’

She prayed over everyone present with her arms extended.


Then Our Lady gave the message to Ivan.

“Dear children, also today I rejoice together with you and also today I desire to call you to decide for Jesus.

 I see so many youth who are returning anew, are deciding, are changing.

 Pray for the youth, dear children, pray for families.

 The Mother prays for all of you.

 Especially through this time of grace: pray more.

 Pray that my Son may be born in your hearts; that He may renew you – and permit the Holy Spirit to lead you.

 Thank you, dear children, also today for having responded to my call.”


 After that She blessed all with Her Motherly Blessing and all our religious articles. Ivan said that he recommended all of us, our needs and intentions, our families and all the youth at the Youth Festival and their families. .

Our Lady continued praying over all present and She left in that prayer, in an illuminated Sign of the Cross and She said, “Go in peace my dear children
