Message, 25. November 2015

“Dear children! Today I am calling all of you: pray for my intentions. Peace is in danger, therefore, little children, pray and be carriers of peace and hope in this restless world where Satan is attacking and tempting in every way. Little children, be firm in prayer and courageous in faith. I am with you and intercede before my Son Jesus for all of you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

November in Medjugorje

According to the registration data in the Information Office, groups from France, Hungary, Germany, Austria, Portugal, Italy, Canada, the United States and Croatia were in Medjugorje in the recent days. Benedetta del Gobbo, 18 years old girl, came from Rome with her family: „This is my 16th time to be here, I am coming as my family comes here on the regular pilgrimages and I feel here as I am at home. We all feel strongly Our Lady’s presence here. Medjugorje is also a school for me, as each time we come here, we learn how to grow with Her and that is so important for all of us. Young people today are not seeking for God, they seek for happiness in the wrong things, they search for something all the time, night and day, search for parties, entertainment and they are only filling their emptiness with another form of emptiness. This only brings them away from the important things in their lives and they no longer know how to respond to this in the proper way”, shared with us this young pilgrim.

The 25th Anniversary of the parish choir “Queen of Peace”


This Tuesday, November 24, the parish choir “Queen of Peace”, present in the parish of St. James in Medjugorje are going to celebrate their 25th anniversary of their work and activities. The solemn celebration will be at the Holy Mass 6 pm in the parish church and afterwards new CD „Salve Regina” as well as the memorial of 25 years of this choir will be introduced in the Hall of John Paul II.


The beginning of November in Međugorje


The seminar for girls from the 7th and 8th grade was held in Medjugorje from November 6-8, organised by the Franciscan School Sisters from Mostar. There were around 40 girls that gathered, from Medjugorje, Possusje, Kocerin, Tihaljina and Klobuk. As they wanted to return to the initial charisma, our nuns began to organise prayer-educational seminars for girls that are regularly held since 1993.


„I feel something very powerful in Međugorje, I believe God is here”


Our journalists had opportunity to talk to many pilgrims in the last few months. One of them wasLayousse, young man from Israel who came here during the Youth Festival. “Young people are here and they are members of the prayer groups, while the leader of our group is the representative of one Israelite prayer movement in Vatican.


March for Life from Mostar to Medjugorje


The prayer pro-life initiative «40 days for life» was held for the first time in Mostar from September 23 to November 1, 2015. The organisation team of this initiative shared with us their testimony about all of the graces they received while they prayed and spent time together outside the Clinical Hospital in Bijeli Brijeg, Mostar.



26.10.2015 - The Youth Festival 2016 in Medjugorje

It was only few months ago that we had the 26th Youth Festival that gathered large number of the participants from all over the world. We are already preparing for the next on that will begin on August 1, 2016, not on July 31, 2016. The organisers would like to inform all of the youth that due to the World Youth Day with Holy Father Francis in Poland, the next Youth Festival will exceptionally begin one day later. We expect you all, dear young people, to join us at the 27th Youth Festival in Medjugorje, they said. These prayer meetings were initiated by late Fr. Slavko Barbaric in 1990, when he gathered around 100 young people, two guitar players and the event was held in the green tent (located where the Hall of St. John Paul II is today). The number of the participants was increased each year and this is now the biggest event in Medjugorje.


23.02.2015 - Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Many pilgrims said that what impressed them most in Medjugorje is devotion of the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. We have Adoration on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 9-10 p.m., and on Thursdays after the evening Holy Mass. Every 25th in the month we have whole night Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from 9-10 p.m., with music and meditations and from 10 p.m. it is silent Adoration until 7 a.m.


07.04.2014 - Simultaneous translation

As of May 1, 2014 all talks and testimonies held around the church of St. James are going to be simultaneously translated. Thereby, we would kindly like to ask all of you dear pilgrims, to bring radios and headphones with you, so you could listen and participate in the programme that will be organised.


05.04.2014 -

We were informed that some people are selling mass intentions from Medjugorje parish office on their web sites. This is huge misuse of the most sacred offering of Holy Mass and major fraud at the same time. Thereby, we would kindly like to ask you to be aware of this matter and not to support it by any means. If you happen to find out about similar activities of some other people involved in this, we would appreciate if you could notify us promptly about that.

Fr. Marinko Sakota, parish priest of Medjugorje parish

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.
