Message, 25. October 2014

“Dear children! Pray in this time of grace and seek the intercession of all the saints who are already in the light.  From day to day may they be an example and encouragement to you on the way of your conversion.  Little children, be aware that your life is short and passing. Therefore, yearn for eternity and keep preparing your hearts in prayer.  I am with you and intercede before my Son for each of you, especially for those who have consecrated themselves to me and to my Son. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Fr. John Chisholm, long-time Medjugorje pilgrim


Fr. John Chisholm, the Holy Ghost priest from Ireland, long-time Medjugorje pilgrim died on Thursday, October 23, 2014 in his 93rd year of life as a consequence of a heart attack. Fr. John was ordained as a priest in 1946, and he spent six years in Medjugorje from 2000 to 2006, serving to God, Gospa and English –speaking pilgrims. While he was once with his mother, he heard about the events in Medjugorje and felt desire to come to this place. Soon after her death, he received invitation to come to Medjugorje with a group of pilgrims. In that week, he completely fell in love with Gospa, in love that he faithfully served to until the last breath of his earthly life.


The Third International Pilgrimage for Persons with Disability ended with Holy Mass


The Third International Pilgrimage for Persons with Disability ended with Holy Mass at the White Dome of St. James’ church and the pilgrimage was held with the theme “In Mary’s School” and gathered around 1380 participants. The parishioners from Medjugorje – 85 families (pansion houses, hotels and family homes) gave free accommodation to all pilgrims that arrived from Croatia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania, Italy and the United States. This pilgrimage was organised by the Association “Susret/Encounter” from Citluk, parish office Medjugorje and Mother’s Village. Jasminka Vasilj, the President of Association “Susret” said at the end of this pilgrimage: “I am proud of our parish, everything went well, we had 1380 pilgrims with disability, their parents and volunteers who were here for three days and on Saturday there were around 150 people from the area that joined the pilgrimage.”


The experiences of the participants of the Third Pilgrimage for Disabled Persons in Medjugorje


The Third Pilgrimage for Disabled Persons “In Mary’s School” that is being held in Medjugorje, gathered more than 1300 participants. This pilgrimage was created as the fruit of pilgrimages of Sr. Rastislava Ralbovsky with the community of persons with special needs from Djakovo. “I am strongly convinced that this is Our Lady’s plan that I was aware of from the beginning. I moved slowly in the process and I can see it is the work of God”, said Sr. Rastislava and emphasised that Medjugorje was in her heart from the very beginning. Magda Kaliterna, volunteer from the church of St. Phillip Neri from Split said that they came for the pilgrimage last year for the first time. “We came last year not knowing what to expect, but everyone from volunteers to parents were thrilled. Some young volunteers who were 18 – 19 years old returned home and told their parents that they had spent the four most beautiful days in Medjugorje. Our volunteers are young people and we would like to form and raise them in the Christian spirit so they would understand that serving is the most important thing in their lives.”


The Third International Pilgrimage for Persons with Disability began in Medjugorje


The Third International Pilgrimage for Persons with Disability is being held in Medjugorje from October 23-26, with the theme “In Mary’s School”. This pilgrimage gathered more than 1300 participants and most of them were from Croatia, then Slovakia, Ukraine, Lithuania, Italy and the United States. All participants were again hosted by families from Medjugorje which again confirmed their great hearts and desire to help and also why Our Lady had chosen this parish in a very special way. This pilgrimage that was organised by Association “Encounter/Susret” from Citluk, in cooperation with Mother’s Village and the Parish Office, began on Thursday with the evening Holy Mass celebrated at the White Dome of St. James’ church by Fr. Josip Vlasic, the parish priest from Mostar parish of Sts. Peter and Paul. The inspiration for this gathering is a pilgrimage that took place for many years to Medjugorje by Sr. Rastislava Ralbovsky that had been coming here with the community of special needs persons from Djakovo. She gave interview on radio Medjugorje and said that today people with disabilities are meeting in Medjugorje so they could find love and protection with Our Lady: “May all of them be encouragement to us, that by looking at them, we may understand ourselves, our wounded hearts. We all carry within ourselves deep desire to love and to be loved: that is what the core of human being is.” The programme is also this year filled with many activities, lectures and prayer meetings.

20.05.2014 - The invitation

News about floods that have not been remembered so far and have affected parts of Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia, have travelled around the whole world. That is why many pilgrims have asked if Medjugorje was affected and if there was anything that they could do. Medjugorje is not close to those endangered areas but Medjugorje wishes to be close to all those who have felt or still feel consequences of this great natural catastrophe. Thereby we invite all pilgrims, people of good will and friends of Medjugorje to respond and help as much as they can. It is possible to do that through our humanitarian organisation Medjugorje - Mir - Mother's Village (that was founded in the time of the war and directed your help to all those in need) by giving your donations to this account:

Mother of God – the best pastoral theologian 

Max Domej from Gebetsktion Wien spoke to Cardinal Christoph Schonborn, Archbishop of Vienna, during his visit to Međugorje.
Both in Lourdes and Fatima the events first ceased and than Church had its decision about that. Its final decision. Sooner or later that will take place here as well, but in this case we let Mother of God with freedom of choice...I think that Medjugorje can continue well on their journey, with full trust that Church, Mother and Teacher, in this case, is going to continue to monitor their journey.
