Two archbishops visited Medjugorje for the feast of the Queen of the Holy Rosary.
Mons. Luigi Bommarito, Archbishop Emeritus of Catania (Italy), was in Medjugorje from the 5th to the 7th of October 2006, together with a group of pilgrims from Italy. This was his second visit to Medjugorje.
Mons. Harry Joseph Flynn, Archbishop of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota (USA), together with a group of pilgrims from Minnesota, visited Medjugorje for the first time from the 6th to the 8th of October 2006. Mons. Flynn met the Franciscans serving Medjugorje Parish and spoke with them about the pastoral aspects of the work with the pilgrims, and especially with those who come from his own archdiocese, where numerous prayer groups have been established, groups that have reintroduced Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament into their parishes. He said that he has come to Medjugorje to pray.
Having celebrated the morning Holy Masses for the Italian and the English speaking pilgrims, both archbishops visited the places of prayer and also spent many hours hearing confessions.
