Stories of Our Lady of Medjugorje

Dominican priest travels to famous Balkan city
St. James Church in the tiny village of Medjugorje, completed in 1969, was
considered to be far larger than any foreseeable need, but times and need have changed. There are many Masses each day, but the Croatian Mass is still outside. Special to The B.C. Catholic.
Father David Bellusci, OP, shares his experience in the city of Medjugorje where Mary appeared to a group of children in 1981:

I was recently a member of a tour group which landed in Split, Croatia, after flying between mountain peaks and along the Adriatic coast. We then made a three-hour trip by road across the Bosnia-Herzegovina border to Medjugorje, "town between the hills."
In 1981 six children said they were seeing the Virgin Mary daily and she was giving them messages to pass on. Some of them still live in the town and some say they are still receiving messages. 
The words of my tour guide, Ivan, stayed with me: "You are here because the Virgin Mary has invited you."
