St. James Church
St. James Church, Medjugorje

Medjugorje, located in the rugged mountains of Bosnia-Hercegovina, has become a spiritual haven with more than 40 million pilgrims having traveled there since its beginning on June 24, 1981. The apparitions are elevated in drama and urgency as the Virgin Mary reveals that these will be her last apparitions on earth, because, she states, "It will no longer be necessary."

In the history of the Roman Catholic Church, the Blessed Virgin Mary has appeared in apparition many times, the most recognizable names being Guadalupe (Mexico), LaSallette and Lourdes (France), Knock (Ireland) and Fatima (Portugal). But never in recorded Marian history has she appeared daily for so long a period of time, to so many chosen visionaries, with such profound global results.

I invite you to discover this great gift of grace given to all of God's children, for the apparitions are not just for Catholics or even just Christians. God is calling all true believers in what I term the final harvest of souls.

~ Wayne Weible, author of many books on the Medjugorje apparitions
