Only the visionary’s family was there when Medjugorje visionary Ivanka Ivankovic-Elez had her annual apparition on June 25. The Virgin Mary told Ivanka about the fifth prophetic secret and gave a short message urging prayer for peace, the visionary said after her yearly encounter with Mary.

While pilgrims from all over the world were busy celebrating the 31st anniversary of the apparitions, only few people were present when the Virgin Mary appeared in a house in Miletina in the outskirts of town this afternoon.
Here, visionary Ivanka Ivankovic-Elez received her annual apparition, as promised to her by the Virgin Mary during Ivanka’s last daily apparition on May 7th 1985.
“The apparition, which lasted 7 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 5th secret and at the end said: “I am giving you my motherly blessing. Pray for peace, peace, peace” the parish website informs.
For five years from 2005, Ivanka was told of the Virgin Mary’s 10 prophetic secrets in progression, one per year, starting with the fifth secret in 2005 and ending with the tenth in 2010. Last year’s apparition had the first secret in focus.
