Message, 25. September 2014

“Dear children! Also today I call you to also be like the stars, which by their light give light and beauty to others so they may rejoice. Little children, also you be the radiance, beauty, joy and peace – and especially prayer – for all those who are far from my love and the love of my Son Jesus. Little children, witness your faith and prayer in joy, in the joy of faith that is in your hearts; and pray for peace, which is a precious gift from God. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

All members of one family decided to gather at a pilgrimage in Medjugorje. Mairead Peoples, pilgrim and a group leader from Ireland was able to gather 35 members of her family for a one week pilgrimage to Medjugorje. Mairead said that she has been coming to Medjugorje for many years and came in 1985 for the first time: „Every year I bring pilgrims and I think that I only missed one year -1991. I was able to see in all of these years how lives of people are changing. Faith in our country is very week. I bring pilgrims and I beleive that Gospa has a plan for each one of them and that she does soemthing special for all pilgrims. I really love my family to come over here" said Mairead.

Ollie Clarke, journalist from Ireland was in Medjugorje in the past few days and he works on Christian radio– Spirit Radio Ireland.

He came to Međugorje in 1995, for the first time and ever since then he was here for 30 more times and said: „Međugorje is my home. It opened my faith and gave me tools that I needed to witness and to enlighten the message of the Gospel in my heart”. The life story of this pilgrim is very interesting and is imbued with God's blessing despite family tragedies and facing with serious illness that he was able to beat thanks to Jesus and Mary.

Sisters of Servants of the little Jesus and their assistants came to Medjugorje on Saturday afternoon on October 11, 2014. They arrived from communities active in educational work with children from Mostar, Vitez and Sarajevo. After greeting and words of welcome, Fr. Dragan Ruzic, director of Mother’s Village presented them the work and history of Mother’s Village. They walked around the village and community “Merciful Father” and visited one of the houses where children live at the end. “Fr. Dragan prepared gifts to us as well as refreshments and filled with beautiful impressions, we went to the church of St. James to thank our Heavenly Mother for such a beautiful day and many graces of this encounter and to give her all of our intentions. We thank all those who participated in organisation of this encounter and we are so grateful for all new experiences we gained. May the love of little Jesus and our wonderful Mother Mary continue to guide and lead us in our serving to the smallest ones”, they said.


The experiences of pilgrims from Medjugorje


Our journalists recently had chance to speak to many pilgrims and one of them is a priest Juan Carlos Zapata, born in Columbia who serves in the parish of St. Joseph in Newark Diocese New Jersey and was ordained ten years ago. “I worked in the various parishes in the United States and up to four years ago, I was director of radio Maria, which is still part of my duties, I conduct shows there and I speak about Marian themes and I am also a marriage counsellor. My love to Gospa is so big, I was always aware that the Lord is doing His work with the heart of a Mother. I prayed that He, through Mary, may show me the needs of people. I desired to come to Medjugorje for many years, after I heard about it from my colleagues - priests. I asked Him to answer my prayer and to send me to Medjugorje when mostly needed and that is exactly what He did.”

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.
