On June 25, 1981, in the tiny village of Medjugorje, located in Bosnia-Herzegovina, six Croatian children reported seeing an apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary. More than 35 million people from all over the world have now visited Medjugorje.
Pope John Paul II and the Roman Catholic Church have acknowledged that this has become the greatest religious event of our time.
Thirty eight years later, Our Lady is still reportedly appearing, bringing a message of hope and peace to a troubled world.
Our Blessed Mother's most recent messages:
Medjugorje Message October 25, 2020
Given to Marija Pavlovic-Lunett
"Dear Children! I am calling you to return to God and to prayer. Invoke the help of all the saints, for them to be an example and a help to you. Satan is strong and is fighting to draw all the more hearts to himself. He wants war and hatred. That is why I am with you this long; to lead you to the way of salvation to Him who is the way, the truth, and the life. Little Children return to the love of God and He will be your strength and refuge. Thank you for responding to my call".
Queen of Peace Apostolate board members visited Vicka Ivankovic-Mijatovic, one of the six visionaries to whom the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared on June 25, 1981. Vicka is one of three who still sees the Blessed Mother every day. The other three visionaries each have one yearly apparition.
Vicka spoke for more than thirty minutes, sharing Our Blessed mothers messages, and then prayed with us for all our intentions.

On March 18, 2020, Our Lady appeared to Mirjana for her annual apparition, during which she told Mirjana that she would no longer appear on the 2nd of each month as she has been doing for many years.
Due to government restrictions regarding the coronavirus, Mirjana was in her room in Medjugorje when she experienced today’s apparition. After the apparition, Mirjana was incredibly sad and in shock with the realization that she would no longer see Our Lady on the 2nd of each month.
After the apparition, Mirjana reported that
Our Lady gave the following message:
My Son, as God, always looked above time. I, as His mother, through Him, see in time. I see beautiful and sad things. But I see that there is still love, and that it needs doing for it to be known. My children, you cannot be happy if you do not love each other, if you do not have love in every situation and at every moment of your life. Also, I, as a mother, am coming to you through love—to help you to come to know true love, to come to know my Son. This is why I am calling you, always anew to thirst all the more for love, faith, and hope. The only spring from which you can drink is trust in God, my Son. My children, in moments of peacelessness and renunciation you just seek the face of my Son. You just live His words and do not be afraid. Pray and love with sincere feelings, with good works; and help so that the world may change and that my heart may win. Like my Son, I am also saying to you: love each other because without love there is no salvation. Thank you my children.”

The 39th Anniversary of Our Lady's Apparitions in Medjugorje.
Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, Rosary, Benediction & Mass, followed by Prayers for Healing. St. Mary's Church, Waterloo, NY June 25, 2020
Fr. Paul Bonacci Celebrant
For those who have been to Medjugorje, the beautiful images viewed during this Rosary will help you vividly recall the sights of this holy shrine. Those who have yet to make the pilgrimage may be inspired to make the journey of a lifetime. During the Joyful Mysteries, climb Apparition Hill (Podbrdo), where the visionaries first saw Our Lady. The Luminous Mysteries are prayed while viewing scenes of the prayer areas around St. James Church and the hamlet of Bijakovici. The Sorrowful mysteries are prayed while climbing Mt. Krizevac where bronze images depict the Stations of the Cross. The Glorious Mysteries highlight St. James Church and other prayer areas, and culminates with evening adoration at the exterior altar. As you recite the prayers of this Rosary Our Lady's words appear on the screen allowing you to meditate on her messages of Peace, Faith, Conversion, Prayer and Fasting.
