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.

Our Lady’s May 25, 2020 Message to Marija

“Dear children!  Pray with me for a new life for all of you.  In your hearts, little children, you know what needs to be changed.  Return to God and His Commandments, so that the Holy Spirit may change your lives and the face of this earth, which is in need of renewal in the Spirit.  Little children, be prayer for all those who do not pray; be joy for all those who do not see the way out; be carriers of light in the darkness of this peaceless time. Pray and seek the help and protection of the saints so that you also could yearn for Heaven and heavenly realities.  I am with you and am protecting and blessing all of you with my motherly blessing.  Thank you for having responded to my call.”



Our Lady’s April 25, 2020 Message to Marija

“Dear children!  May this time be an incentive for personal conversion for you.  Pray, little children, in solitude, to the Holy Spirit to strengthen you in faith and trust in God, that you may be worthy witnesses of the love which God bestows upon you through my presence.  Little children, do not permit trials to harden your heart and for prayer to be like a desert.  Be a reflection of God’s love and witness the Risen Jesus by your lives.  I am with  you  and  I love all of you  with  my motherly  love. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

A Message from Medjugorje During The Pandemic

A Message from Medjugorje During The Pandemic

A Message from Ivanka Petrović Our Friend and Local Guide in Medjugorje

At this difficult time in our country, we have faith and find comfort in God and Our Blessed Mother. It is difficult for everyone but is most difficult for the hundreds who are infected. Schools are closed, with no kids in the streets. It’s like life has stopped, but real life is happening indoors. What the virus has done to us. We went through the war in our country. Many say it was easier during the war. The people knew where the enemy was. Now, no one is sure where it is hidden. But there are some good things that are happening. Families are at home. No one is in a hurry. There is time for family meetings, lunch together, family prayer, time to reflect and return to God. Masses are on TV. We appreciate, now more than ever before, our churches, our priests, our sacraments, our friends, our daily food, our homemade bread, our homes where we find shelter. There is no time for fear, doubts, desperation, or negative thoughts. Our Lady brings us hope. As you know, Mirjana won’t have the apparition on the 2nd of the month anymore. It doesn’t mean that Our Lady left us, abandoned us. All these years she has been teaching us to stay with Jesus. If we are with Jesus, there is no fear. Stay well and healthy! Use this time to get to know Jesus better. Use the time for your family prayer! One day, all of this will be behind us and we will go back to St. James, to Apparition Hill and Cross Mountain. We will be waiting for you!
God bless you all.
Your Medjugorje friends,
Ivanka and Zeljko
