As has been the case for many years and in the past, the whole week from the 5th Sunday of Lent, until Palm Sunday will be offered in prayer to prevent curses and blasphemous language in our people. All parishioners and pilgrims are invited to offer their prayer intentions, especially the Way of the Cross on Friday and to present these to the Lord in atonement for all the pain He receives caused by slandering and blasphemous language. Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday and is the highlight of preparation for the Easter celebration. The liturgy of Palm Sunday will begin in the Medjugorje parish in the grounds of the old parish church at 10.30 a.m. and a procession will move from there to the parish church of St. James where Holy Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Holy Mass in the Croatian language will be at 7 a.m., 8 a.m. and at 6 p.m. The blessing of olive and palm branches will take place at every Holy Mass. The Rosary will be at 2 p.m. on Apparition Hill, as on every Sunday.
