For those of You who have never been to Medjugorje, You will experience one of the most spiritual and peaceful places on earth. One of the best descriptions of Medjugorje we have ever heard is: “Medjugorje is a place where Heaven touches the earth”. After visiting Medjugorje we are sure you will agree.
The messages attributed to Our Lady of Medjugorje have a strong following among Catholics worldwide. Medjugorje has become one of the most popular pilgrimage sites for Catholics in the world and has turned into Europe’s third most important apparition site, where each year more than 1 million people visit.
It has been estimated that 30 million pilgrims have come to Medjugorje since the reputed apparitions began in 1981. Many have reported visual phenomenon including the sun spinning in the sky or changing color and figures such as hearts and crosses around the sun. Some visitors have suffered eye damage while seeking to experience such phenomenon.
Father Joza Saint and healer layed hands on Tony O through prayer the heat radiated through his body.
Jesuit Father Robert Faricy has written about his own experience of such phenomenon, saying: “Yet I have seen rosaries which have changed colour, and I have looked directly at the sun in Medjugorje and have seen it seems to spin and turn different colours. It would be easier to report that it is just hysteria except that I would then have to accuse myself of being hysterical, which I was not and am not.”
