Medjugorje Overview

On June 24, 1981, in the small parish town known as Medjugorje, in Bosnia – Herzegovina, The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to six young children. Since then, Our Lady has been appearing daily with an urgent message for the world,

“I have come to tell the world that God exists. He is the fullness of life, and to enjoy this fullness and peace, you must return to God”

Six young people from Medjugorje, a small village which lies between two mountains, see the Blessed Mother and talk to her daily. God has sent her to speak to the world messages of peace through prayer, reconciliation, fasting, reading God’s word daily, and conversion. She asks us to pray deeply from the heart.

The whole village of Medjugorje is in Mary’s school, a school of love. She continually thanks the village and us for responding to her call.

Our website and our Centers for Peace are a response to her call to spread her messages of Peace to the world. We are dedicated to Mary, the Blessed Mother, who introduced herself in Medjugorje as the Queen of Peace.

On the 25th of each month, the Blessed Mother gives one of the six young people, Marija Pavlovic Lunetti, a message for the world.

Mary, Mother of God my mother, Queen of Peace, ask Your Son Jesus to give me the gift of peace. Pray for me for peace; peace in my heart, peace of mind and of soul, peace in my family, peace with all whom I meet, the peace of Jesus.

Jesus, my Lord and Savior, my Brother, King of Peace, I come to You with Mary, Queen of Peace, to ask You humbly for a new outpouring of the gift of peace. Pour out on me Your Holy Spirit of Peace.

Give me peace, Jesus, peace within myself, peace in my family, peace in my everyday life. Give peace to my nation, and to all nations, peace among all peoples, peace in the world.

Jesus, my mediator with the Father, take me to the Father to pray for peace.

Father, Father of Jesus, our Father, my Father, I come to You with Your Son Jesus. In Him and with Him and through Him I pray for peace.

–Fr. Robert Faricy, S.J.
