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.
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.

Medjugorje Message June 25, 2020
Given to Marija Pavlovic-Lunett
I am listening to your cries and prayers, and am interceding for you before my Son Jesus, who is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Return, little children, to prayer and open your hearts in this time of grace and set out on the way of conversion. Your life is passing and, without God, does not have meaning. This is why I am with you to lead you towards holiness of life, so that each of you may discover the joy of living.
I love you all, little children, and am blessing you with my motherly blessing.
Thank you for having responded to my call."
December 25, 2019 Message to Jakov
At the last daily apparition to Jakov Colo on September 12th, 1998, Our Lady told him that henceforth he would have one apparition a year, every December 25th, on Christmas Day. This is also how it was this year. The apparition began at 2:25 pm and lasted 9 minutes. Our Lady came with little Jesus in her arms. Through Jakov, Our Lady gave the following message: "Dear children, today, on this day of grace, in a special way I am calling you to open your hearts and to implore Jesus to strengthen your faith. Children, through prayer with the heart, faith and works you will come to know what it means to live a sincere Christian life. Often times, children, darkness, pain and crosses overwhelm your hearts. Do not waver in faith and ask 'why' because you think that you are alone and abandoned. Instead, open your hearts, pray and believe firmly and then your heart will feel God's nearness and that God never abandons you - that He is beside you at every moment. Through prayer and faith, God will answer your every 'why' and transform your every pain, darkness and cross into light. Thank you."
Today, 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.”

Thank you for your continued support of the
Queen of of Peace Apostolate
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.
Thank you for helping The Queen of Peace Apostolate to continue it's work. We appreciate your support!
