Message, 25. July 2014

“Dear children! You are not aware of the graces that you are living at this time in which the Most High is giving you signs for you to open and convert. Return to God and to prayer, and may prayer begin to reign in your hearts, families and communities, so that the Holy Spirit may lead and inspire you to every day be more open to God’s will and to His plan for each of you. I am with you and with the saints and angels intercede for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

The experiences of participants of the 25th Youth Festival in Medjugorje


It happens very often that whole families arrive to Medjugorje for the Youth Festival, young children and their parents and we had chance to meet family Nikolic, Croats from Zurich. Their message was: Come to Medjugorje. Ljiljana is a mother of four children and has been coming to Medjugorje for several years now.

We try to pass on Medjugorje on our families, friends, even at the working place.” Her husband told us that they have been coming here for 20 years now.

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.
