About Medugorje - 40th Anniv. of apparitions in Medugorje

Motif: Church of St. Jacob Design: Marin Musa Four decades ago, Međugorje was a small place in Herzegovina, and today it is one of the most famous places of pilgrimage from which the messages of Our Lady of Međugorje are sent to the whole world. On June 25, 1981, six young men and women (Jakov Čolo, Ivan Dragićević, Mirjana Dragićević, Ivanka Ivanković, Vicka Ivanković and Marija Pavlović) testified that on the Crnica hill, in a part called Podbrdo, they met a woman they recognized as Our Lady. For forty years Our Lady of Međugorje has been calling for peace, faith, conversion, prayer and fasting. She especially calls for the rosary praying, which is the strongest weapon that can stop all evil. The parish of Međugorje was founded in 1892 and dedicated to St. James, protector of pilgrims. The parish church is the center of sacramental life. Eucharistic celebration, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar and Holy Confession are at the center of the gathering of believers. To this day, thousands and thousands of pilgrims have visited Međugorje, whose lives, along with the Blessed Virgin Mary - Queen of Peace, are also guarded by St. James. There are many testimonies of pilgrims who found faith and their lost peace right there. Today, in their families and communities, they live the messages of the Gospel under the protection of the caring Queen of Peace, whose motherly love touches the heart of every human being.
