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.

Message of April 25, 2016

"Dear Children! My Immaculate Heart bleeds as I look at you in sin and sinful habits. I am calling you: return to God and to prayer that it may be good for you on earth. God is calling you through me for your hearts to be hope and joy for all those who are far away. May my call be for you a balm for the soul and heart so that you may glorify God, the Creator, who loves you and is calling you to Eternity. Little children, life is short; you, make good use of this time and do what is good. Thank you for having responded to my call."

January 2, 2016 Message to Mirjana

"Dear children, as a mother, I am joyful to be among you because I desire to speak anew about the words of my Son and of His love. I hope that you will accept me with the heart, because the words of my Son and His love are the only light and hope in the darkness of today. This is the only truth and you who will accept and live it will have pure and humble hearts. My Son loves those who are pure and humble. Pure and humble hearts bring to life the words of my Son, they live them, they spread them and they make it possible for everyone to hear them. The words of my Son bring back life to those who listen to them. The words of my Son bring back love and hope. Therefore, my beloved apostles, my children, live the words of my Son. Love each other as He loved you. Love each other in His name, in memory of Him. The Church is advancing and growing because of those who listen to the words of my Son; because of those who love; because of those who suffer and endure in silence and in the hope of final redemption. Therefore, my beloved children, may the words of my Son and His love be the first and the last thought of your day. Thank you."



June 25, 2014 Annual Apparition to Ivanka

At her last daily apparition on May 7, 1985, Our Lady confided to Ivanka the 10th secret and told her that she would have an apparition once a year on the anniversary of the apparitions. It was that way also this year.

The apparition, which lasted 4 minutes, took place at Ivanka's family home. Only Ivanka's family was present at the apparition. After the apparition, Ivanka said: "Our Lady gave us her motherly blessing."

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!
