Saint Peter and Saint Paul Dear Family of Mary!"Dear children! Give thanks with me to the Most High for my presence with you. My heart is joyful watching the love and joy in the living of my messages. Many of you have responded, but I wait for, and seek, all the hearts that have fallen asleep to awaken from the sleep of unbelief. Little children, draw even closer to my Immaculate Heart so that I can lead all of you toward eternity. Thank you for having responded to my call." (June 25, 2011)Last night, I sat down to do this reflection at around 7:00 pm. I was so tired, with jet lag, and a long journey home from Medjugorje, that I thought I would lay down for a quick nap before I wrote the reflection. I woke up this morning...good grief! So sorry about that. But the sleep was great!Let me share something brief.
"The visionary Ivanka Ivankovic-Elez had her regular annual apparition on June 25th 2011.
At Her last daily apparition on May 7, 1985, Our Lady confided to Ivanka the 10th secret and told her that she would have an apparition once a year on the anniversary of the apparitions. It was that way also this year."The apparition which lasted 8 minutes took place at Ivanka's family home. Only Ivanka's family was present at the apparition. After the apparition, Ivanka said: "Our Lady spoke to me about the first secret and, at the end, said: 'Dear children, receive my motherly blessing.'" (http://www.medjugorje.net/ ) Ivanka has told us she waits for June 25th each year with great anticipation and emotion. She says for weeks before her apparition, she can think of nothing else. Ivanka has carried all ten secrets since 1985. Surely it is only prayer that sustains her during her long wait. When she came to Notre Dame in 2010, she shared how hard it was for her to only see Our Lady once a year. She is a model for us all of constancy and faith. We wait with you, Ivanka, for the day when we can all see Our Lady, face to face!More tonight!In Jesus and Mary!
