On orders from the Bishop (letter of March 25th), the apparitions are forbidden in every room contiguous to the Church itself, which are then transferred to the rectory.

Ivanka has a vision at home, which lasts about an hour: The Blessed Virgin was more beautiful than ever and was accompanied by two angels. She asks me what I wished. I prayed to her to let me see my mother. The Blessed Virgin smiled and approved with a nod. My mother appeared to me very soon. She was smiling. Our Lady told me to stand up. My mother embraced me, and said: My child, I am so proud of you. She embraced me again and disappeared. Our Lady then said to me:
“My dear child, today is our last meeting, do not be sad. I will return to see you at each anniversary of the first apparition (June 25), beginning next year. Dear child, do not think that you have done anything bad, and that this would be the reason why I’m not returning near to you. No, it is not that. With all your heart you have accepted the plans which my Son and I formulated, and you have accomplished everything. No one in the world has had the grace which you, your brothers and sisters have received. Be happy because I am your Mother and I love you from the bottom of my heart. Ivanka, thank you for the response to the call of my Son, thank you for persevering and remaining always with Him as long as He will ask you. Dear child, tell all your friends that my Son and I are always with them when they call on us. What I have told you during these years on the secrets, do not speak to anyone about them.”
Ivanka: Dear Gospa, may I embrace you? The blessed Virgin gives an affirmative sign with her head. I then embraced her. I asked her to bless me. She did it with a smile and added:
“Go in the peace of God.”
Then she left slowly with the two angels.

“Dear children, this evening I would like to tell you to pray more during the novena for an out pouring of the Holy Spirit, on your families and your parish. Pray, and you will not be sorry for it. God will present you with gifts for which you are going to glorify Him all your earthly life.”

“Today I invite you to humility. These days all of you have felt a great joy because of all the people who came here, and to whom you spoke with love about your experience. With humility and an opening of the heart, continue to speak with all those who come.”

Message to Ivan, during an apparition in the evening, on the mountain of Krizevac, where Our Lady came dressed in gold vestments.
“Praise be Jesus Christ. My children, I’m happy to be with you this evening, and to see you so numerous. I bless you with a special blessing.”
After having prayed for a long time and listened to Ivan who recommended the persons present, Our Lady concluded with:
“Make progress in holiness through the messages. I will help you. Give your utmost and we will go together, sensitive to the sweetness of life, light, and joy.”
After having blessed them, Our Lady left in the sign of the radiant Cross while saying:
“Go in the peace of God, my children, my little children.”

“My angel, pray for unbelievers. People will tear their hair, brother will plead with brother, he will curse his past life lived without God. They will repent, but it will be too late. Now is the time for conversion. I have been exhorting you for the past four years. Pray for them. Invite everyone to pray the Rosary.”
“I have given you my love, so that you may give it to others.”

Mirjana: When she appeared, the Blessed Virgin greeted me, “Praised be Jesus.” Then she spoke of unbelievers:
“They are my children. I suffer because of them. They do not know what awaits them. You must pray more for them.”
We prayed with her for the weak, the unfortunate, and the forsaken. After the prayer, she blessed us. Then she showed me, as in a film, the realization of the first secret. The earth was desolate. It is the upheaval of a region of the world. She was precise. I cried. Why so soon?, I asked.
“In the world, there are so many sins. What can I do, if you do not help me. Remember, that I love you.”
How can God have such a hard heart?
“God does not have a hard heart. Look around you and see what men do, then you will no longer say that God has a hard heart. How many people come to church, to the house of God, with respect, a strong faith, and love of God? Very few! Here you have a time of grace and conversion. It is necessary to use it well.”
“Pray very much for Father Petar, to whom I send a special blessing. I am a mother, that is why I come. You must not fear for I am there.”
Fr. Petar Ljubicic had been chosen by Mirjana to unveil to the world the first three warnings, three days before each event.

“I invite you to help Jesus through your prayer, for the realization of all His plans, which He has already begun here. Offer your sacrifices to Jesus, so that He will realize everything that He has planned, and that satan will not be able to do anything.”

“Dear children, receive all that the Lord offers you. Do not have your hands paralyzed and do not repeat: ‘Jesus, give me’. But open your hands, and take everything that the Lord offers you.”

Marija and Ivan met with the prayer group on Mt. Krizevac: “You are on a Thabor. You receive blessings, strength and love. Carry them into your families, and into your homes. To each one of you, I grant a special blessing. Continue in joy, prayer, and reconciliation.”
