Medjugorje is a town in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It’s been a place of Catholic pilgrimage since the Virgin Mary’s apparition on the hill Podbrdo in 1981 to a small group of children. There is a Queen of Peace statue marking the site of the first apparition and one in front of the St. James Church. Liquid has been said to drip from the “Risen Christ” statue near the church. A concrete cross tops Cross Mountain, to the south. The village still is a place of serenity. The weather is sunny and calm.
Check in at the hotel.
Rosary prayer at St James Church in the evening. Our Lady has requested the prayer of the Rosary, since the early years of the apparitions. She desires us to pray not just one mystery a day, but the whole complete Rosary, meaning all four mysteries, the Joyful, the Luminous, the Sorrowful and the Glorious.
Following mass there will be an opening meeting and introduction at the shrine of Our Lady Queen of Peace.
Continue to the Statue of the Risen Lord for a prayer service.
