Statement of intent: This
Medjugorje Web Page was first put on line in the Fall of 1994. The sole
intent of this page is to make the events of this phenomenon known to the
world, and to share the messages that have touched the hearts of millions.
It was my own personal experience at this place that converted me
from a spectator Catholic Christian to a true believer in Christ and the
truth that His blessed mother continues to echo from the gospels. She spreads
this message through 6 human vessels in the heart of what was a Communist
country in 1981. I invite you to read her messages with an open mind and
an open heart, for her messages have such great love, as she sees each
one of us as her children who are in so much need of her care and guidance
to help us to know her son and to return to God. As she repeatedly points
out - we need to pray, pray, pray!

Since June 25, 1981, Mary the Mother of God is reported
to visit daily with several young adults in this Croatian village in Bosnia-Hercegovina,
bringing messages on how to achieve peace in our hearts, homes and world.
Medjugorje has become an international center of prayer,
devotion and conversion of the heart. Our Lady has told the visionaries
that these are her last appearances on earth and it is for this reason
her visits are so long and frequent. She has come to tell us "God exists".
Before her last appearance she has promised to leave a visible sign on
the mountain where the first apparition occurred so that all will believe.
While the Catholic Church has yet to approve any of the
modern day apparitions, in 1986, The Holy Father said, "Let the people
go to Medjugorje if they convert, pray, confess, do penance and fast."
Some 30 million laity and clergy have visited and returned home spiritually
Despite the recent war in Bosnia, Medjugorje remains a
center of peace and of profound spirituality.
The call from the Queen of Peace is:
PEACE! PEACE! PEACE! - is necessary to save humanity.
We have to begin by creating peace first within our own hearts. This can
be done in the following manner:
COMMUNICATION WITH GOD - Open your heart to Him. Allow
yourself to be guided by His will rather than the earthly desires upon
which we base our lives in our world today.
FAITH - Believe and trust in Him.
PRAYER - specifically Our Lady has called for daily
prayer consisting of 7 Our Fathers, 7 Hail Marys, 7 Glory to the Father
and the Apostle's Creed. Then the whole Rosary,
reading of the Scriptures, and personal communication with God.
FASTING - on bread and water twice a week (Wednesdays
and Fridays)if possible. This includes restraining oneself from personal
cravings (smoking, drinking, etc).
FREQUENTLY RECEIVING THE HOLY SACREMENT. She strongly
encourages monthly confessions and receiving communion as often as possible.
