St. Benedict tours, retreats & pilgrimages to Medjugorje and holy shrines
“Medjugorje is a place where Heaven touches the earth.”
On the eve of June 24, 1981, at approximately 6pm, the Blessed Virgin Mother appeared to six Croatian children in a small, beautiful village, Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina (at that time, Yugoslavia). These alleged apparitions of the Blessed Mother, affectionately referred to by the children as Gospa (or “Lady” in Croatian), have continued to this day.
On two occasions Our Lady told the children, “Peace must reign between God and man, and between all people!” Our Lady’s message is that peace is the greatest good, and through faith, conversion, prayer, and fasting, we can all attain it.
Since the first apparition in 1981, millions off people of all faiths have traveled to Medjugorje. Many pilgrims have reported physical and spiritual healings, conversions, and peace. Also, the “Fruits of Medugorje” have brought many vocations to the Holy Priesthood and to religious life.
Once you visit Medjugorje, you will realize why Medjugorje is referred to as “the place where Heaven touches earth.”
