The Međugorje story begun exactly 30 years ago, when the rumor about a small, rugged village of West Herzegovina has shaken not only Herzegovina, but the whole world! From that day on, the small village, known by its modest and hard-working inhabitants, whose daily job was to take care of their families and their cattle, will never ever be the same. The reason for that was the apparition of Blessed Virgin Mary to the six young children.That day, the 25th of June, 1981, was very common for the children, who were doing their usual
activities on the hill above the Bijakovići village up until the moment when they all saw an enormous white light and a cloud came upon them. The children got scared, because they saw a beautiful Lady on a cloud, a vision you cannot see every day. Their fear, however, vanished when She spoke to them in her lovely and peaceful voice. She told them not to be afraid and she asked for their help.She asked them to pray and to encourage others on praying.
Surprised, the children immediately kneeled down as they felt the strong and supernatural power of Lady’s grace. After that, the Lady suddenly faded away. But not for long, she vanished only to the next apparition and from that day on, She has been constantly comming back for the next 30 years. The messages She sends through her seers to the world have spread through four corners of the globe, which made Međugorje one of the well-known
sanctuaries. Despite the fact that it has not been officially confirmed from the Vatican and Holy See yet,
Međugorije is favourite destination for large number of people from the whole world, who
can find their heaven there. Every person who has been once on this holy ground, can vitness about the special grace they had experianced and about the strong impact this place left on them, and this is what makes
them keep comming back to Međugorje.
After all, this is the place where miracles happen, where many ill people have been healed, where many prayers have been heard, a place where many people have founded their faith, where thousands of pilgrims came to ask for help and found confort. Međugorije is a place where every one of us can find its peaceful spot and feel closer to God. It is a place of everyday prayer and connection with the Almighty through the power of holy mass and holy Rosary and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. This is a place where everybody is welcome and where all of us is envited by our Holy Mother, Blessed Virgin Mary. After all, She was the one who has chosen Međugorje to be closer to us, now it is our turn to choose Međugorje to be closer to her. Let the blessing of our Mother be with all of us!
