Dear Friends and Fellow Pilgrims,

So, here we are. Our churches, closed for two months, are beginning to reopen. Schools are still closed, travel is restricted, so many have lost their jobs, some have died. We are fearful of going out into public, to the grocery store, to the park, to meet with friends or family. We wonder, “How long will this continue? When will life go back to normal?”

For now, with all the uncertainty, we have canceled our Annual June 25th Peace Mass and our September pilgrimage to Medjugorje. Next summer will be the 40th anniversary of the first apparitions of Our Lady to the visionaries. As soon as travel restrictions are relaxed, we will begin planning for our 2021 pilgrimage.

In the meantime, we “attend” Mass via live-streaming, we wear our mask in public and maintain our distance from others. We pray for the Holy Spirit to be with us in this uncertain time, that we will be strengthened in our hope and faith and love of God.

We pray for all of you, our Medjugorje friends, that you will be safe and healthy. We pray for our Church and our priests. We pray for the future of Center for Peace West – This is the 30th anniversary year of our organization! We thank you for continuing this journey with us.

Medjugorje Overview


The Blessed Virgin Mary has been appearing to six children (now adults), in a small village in Bosnia-Herzegovina called Medjugorje, from June 24, 1981, until the present. She is only visible (except once) to the six people. She still appears daily to three of the six people and appears once a year to the remaining three people. In addition, she appears once a month to two of the people. She has given a total of ten secrets to three of the people, and nine to the remaining three. After all six people have all of the ten secrets, she will stop appearing to them daily, and the secrets will begin to happen. Some pertain to the local area and visionaries, and the remaining are for the entire world. The third secret is a beautiful indestructible and not from this world sign for all non-believers to see and convert, which will be left on Apparition Hill, the site of her first appearance. The seventh secret has been diminished through prayers and fasting. The ninth and tenth secrets are chastisements for the entire world. In Our Lady's own words,


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.

Experience Medjugorje and Our Lady's Messages

Firsthand Witness of Fr. Leon Pereira, Chaplain to English-Speaking Pilgrims in Medjugorje about his personal Medjugorje testimony and the Five Stones. 


“Dear children!  I am carrying to you little Jesus who brings you peace, Him who is the past, present and future of your existence.

Little children, do not permit for your faith and hope in a better future to be extinguished, because you are chosen to be witnesses of hope in every situation.  That is why I am here with Jesus that He may bless you with His peace.  

Thank you for having responded to my call.”

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.  

Through Jakov, Our Lady gave the following message:

Dear children,

Also today Jesus is here beside you, even when you think that you are alone and that light does not exist in your life.  He is here and has never left you or distanced Himself from you.  

The light of His birth illuminates this world and your life.  His Heart is always open towards you, to receive your every pain, every trial, fear and need.  His arms are extended towards you, that as a father, He may embrace you and tell you how important you are for Him, how much He loves you and cares for His children.  

Children, is your heart open towards Jesus?  Have you completely surrendered your life into His hands?  Have you accepted Jesus as your father, to whom you can always turn and in Him find consolation and everything you need to live true faith?  That is why, my children, surrender your hearts to Jesus and permit Him to begin to rule your lives, because only in this way, will you accept the present and be able to face the world in which you live today.  

With Jesus, every fear, suffering and pain disappear, because your heart accepts His will and everything that comes into your life.  Jesus will give you the faith to accept everything and nothing will distance you from Him — because He firmly holds you by the hand and does not permit for you to distance and lose yourselves in difficult moments — because He has become the Lord of your life.  I bless you with my motherly blessing.”

“Dear children!  This is a time of love, warmth, prayer and joy.  Pray, little children, for little Jesus to be born in your hearts.  Open your hearts to Jesus who gives Himself to each of you.  

God sent me to be joy and hope in this time, and I am saying to you: Without little Jesus you do not have the tenderness or the feeling of Heaven which is hidden in the Newborn.

Therefore, little children, work on yourselves.  By reading the Sacred Scripture you will discover Jesus’ birth and joy, as in the first days which Medjugorje gave to humanity.  History will be truth which, also today, is being repeated in you and around you.

Work on and build peace through the Sacrament of Confession.  Reconcile with God, little children, and you will see miracles around you.  Thank you for having responded to my call.”
