In 1981, Our Lady, Queen of Peace appeared to six children – Ivanka, Mirjana, Ivan, Vicka, Marija and Jakov – in the small village of Medjugorje in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Two young girls in that place, Jelena Vasilj and Marijana Vasilj, also received from Our Lady the gift of inner locution deeply mystical experiences whereby Jesus and Our Lady communicate messages and images interiorly. Since these extraordinary events, millions of pilgrims have travelled from across the world to pray in this special place.
Through these visionaries and locutionaries, Our Lady continues to communicate to the world her loving messages of peace, prayer, fasting, the sacraments and urgent conversion.
Meeting with Our Lady of Medjugorje gives a deep insight into these messages and the happenings in Medjugorje through in-depth interviews with the visionaries, as well as rare and intimate interviews with the two locutionaties. Throughout these beautiful interviews we hear Our Lady’s messages concerning our modern world and the simple and loving message to help us get closer to the Divine: Pray!
Through Jelena, Our Lady requested that a prayer group, which would be led by Her, be created in Medjugorje. It is through prayer groups, and deep personal prayer, that Our Lady wishes to draw us closer. In this book, we hear Our Lady’s instructions for the prayer groups throughout the world.
