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

On September 17, 2014 in Medjugorje, 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 October 25, 2016

Given to Marija Pavlovic-Lunett

"Dear children! Today I am calling you: pray for peace. Leave selfishness and live the messages which I am giving you. Without them, you cannot change your life. By living prayer, you will have peace. By living in peace, you will feel the need to witness, because you will discover God whom you now feel to be far away. Therefore, little children, pray, pray, pray and permit God to enter into your hearts. Return to fasting and confession so as to overcome the evil in you and around you.
Thank you for having responded to my call."

October 02, 2016 message to Mirjana

"Dear children, the Holy Spirit, according to the Heavenly Father, made me the mother - the mother of Jesus - and by this alone, also your mother. That is why I am coming to hear you, that I may open my motherly arms to you; to give you my heart and to call you to remain with me, because from the top of the cross my Son entrusted you to me. Unfortunately, many of my children have not come to know the love of my Son; many of them do not want to come to know Him. Oh, my children, how much bad is done by those who must see or interpret in order to come to believe. That is why, you, my children, my apostles, in the silence of your heart, listen to the voice of my Son, so that your heart may be His home, that it may not be dark and sad, but that it may be illuminated with the light of my Son. Seek hope with faith, because faith is the life of the soul. Anew I am calling you: pray, pray to live faith in humility, in spiritual peace, and illuminated by the light. My children, do not strive to comprehend everything immediately, because I also did not comprehend everything immediately; but I loved, and I believed in the divine words which my Son spoke - He who was the first light and the beginning of redemption. Apostles of my love - you who pray, sacrifice yourselves, love and do not judge - you go and spread the truth, the words of my Son, the Gospel, because you are the living Gospel; you are the rays of the light of my Son. My Son and I will be with you to encourage you and to test you. My children, always implore the blessing of those, and only of those whose hands have been blessed by my Son, of your shepherds. Thank you."

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!
