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.
Forty one years later, Our Lady is still reportedly appearing, bringing a message of hope and peace to a troubled world.

Medjugorje Message July 25, 2022
Given to Marija Pavlovic-Lunett
"Dear Children, I am with you to lead you on the way of conversion, because, little children, with your lives you can draw many souls closer to My Son. You be joyful witnesses of God's word and love, and with hope in the heart, which conquers every evil. Forgive those who inflict evil on you; and go on the way of holiness. I am leading you to my Son, for Him to be the way, the truth and the life for you. Thank you for having responded 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.

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.
