On Monday, March 3, with registration of participants, the 21st International Meeting for organisers of pilgrimages, leaders of peace centres and Medjugorje prayer and charity groups, has began in Medjugorje and there are 250 participants from 17 countries: Italy, the United States, England, Ireland, Russia, Latvia, Ukraine, France, France, Spain, Korea, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The theme of this meeting is "Behold, your Mother", and the lecturer is Fr. Marinko Sakota, the parish priest of Medjugorje parish. The participants, besides lectures and discussions with the lecturer, they are also participating in the evening prayer programme in the church of St. James, and they will also climb Apparition Hill and Cross Mountain. Fr. Marinko, as he spoke about the theme of this seminar, said that Mother was given to us and She is with us: " She guides us and we would like to become aware of that because so very often we forget that She is here. She is our mother who guides us and loves us and that is why we need to hear and follow her. As Jesus said to Ivan "Behold, your mother" in the same way we need to hear what is that She is saying to us. That will be theme of these lectures."
