From the depth of my heart I wish for this Christmas to be merciful event when you will rush to the church with joy, open your hearts to the newly born Jesus and allow Him to be born in you.

Christmas wishes of Fr. Marinko Sakota, Medjugorje parish priest

Christmas, this exalted mystery, is opportunity for us to remain silent, like shepherds and wisemen from the east were, before the mystery of God’s self-giving to men. While we gaze at the manger in our family home or in the parish community and as we sing Christmas hymns, may there be gratitude born in our hearts along with wonder and astonishment for this great mystery – that great God, out of love towards us people, became a little child. May all of you, parishioners of Medjugorje parish, all pilgrims from all over the world and all people of good will, have blessed and merry Christmas!

Christmas message of Provincial of Herzegovina Franciscan Province and President of Union of Friars Minor of Europe (UFME) 2020

Let us invoke intercession of Mary and aid in prayer, for She is a woman of pain and she waits for the mystery in vigil, the mystery just about to take place. (Gaudete, Apostolic exhortation). One day, when this pandemic is over and when we again become a part of our old routine, let us recall how much we longed for what is the simplest of all – just one encounter. May this encounter now take place with newly born Jesus on this Christmas.
