Pilgrim praying at the Blue Cross in
                          Medjugorje October 21, 2016

Message to Ivan´s prayer group at Apparition Hill, Friday 21. October 2016, 9 P.M.

Dear children, also today I desire to call you to perseverance in prayer. Pray dear children for peace—for peace. May peace come to reign in people’s hearts, because from a peaceful heart, a peaceful world is born. Thank you, dear children, for also today having responded to my call. (

Sunday October 2nd 2016 Message, Our Lady prays with Mirjana for the unbelievers

“Dear children, the Holy Spirit, according to the Heavenly Father, made me the mother - the mother of Jesus - and by this alone, also your mother. That is why I am coming to hear you, that I may open my motherly arms to you; to give you my heart and to call you to remain with me, because from the top of the cross my Son entrusted you to me. Unfortunately, many of my children have not come to know the love of my Son; many of them do not want to come to know Him. Oh, my children, how much bad is done by those who must see or interpret in order to come to believe. That is why, you, my children, my apostles, in the silence of your heart, listen to the voice of my Son (imperative, not present tense, in the Serbo-Croatian original), so that your heart may be His home, that it may not be dark and sad, but that it may be illuminated with the light of my Son. Seek hope with faith, because faith is the life of the soul. Anew I am calling you: pray, pray to live faith in humility, in spiritual peace, and illuminated by the light. My children, do not strive to comprehend everything immediately, because I also did not comprehend everything immediately; but I loved, and I believed in the divine words which my Son spoke - He who was the first light and the beginning of redemption. Apostles of my love - you who pray, sacrifice yourselves (present tense), love (undetermined) and do not judge (undetermined) - you go (imperative) and spread the truth, the words of my Son, the Gospel, because you are the living Gospel; you are the rays of the light of my Son. My Son and I will be with you to encourage you and to test you. My children, always implore the blessing of those, and only of those whose hands have been blessed by my Son, of your shepherds. Thank you.” (

Ivan Dragicevic as he encounters Our Lady in the Cathedral in Vienna

Message to Ivan in St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna, 27. September 2016

“Dear children! Today I want to invite you in a special way to pray for all people who are suffering, for all who walk on the way of the cross and carry pain. I invite you – I call you – to pray, so they accept their cross and find love through that cross. Thank you for having responded to my call today!” (

Message to Marija for everyone and for the entire world, 25. September 2016

“Dear children! Today, I am calling you to prayer. May prayer be life to you. Only in this way will your heart be filled with peace and joy. God will be near you and you will feel Him in your heart as a friend. You will speak with Him as with someone whom you know and, little children, you will have a need to witness, because Jesus will be in your heart and you, united in Him. I am with you and love all of you with my motherly love. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (

Since 24th of June 1981, some children in a remote village of the former Yugoslavia claim to have apparitions of the Virgin Mary. These apparitions continue up to the present day. The Virgin calls for prayer, conversion, fasting, penance and peace. These apparitions are comparable with the apparitions of Lourdes, France (1858) and Fatima, Portugal (1917), which are approved by the catholic church. However,


Father Tomislav Vlasic's letter to Pope John Paul II, the official letter of the chaplain of Medjugorje to the Pope about the events in Medjugorje. In his letter of December 16, 1983, to the Pope, Tomislav Vlasic reports some revelations received by Mirjana in 1982, and confided to him November 5, 1983. This letter is essential to anyone who wants to understand the severity and scope of the messages of Medjugorje.


To make people familiar with perhaps the most important apparitions ever are here
The mother of God appears at Medjugorje (some 2 pages on paper), complete contents of a folding card on Medjugorje, with an overview of the messages of the Blessed Virgin and for Holland and Belgium phone numbers for listening to the most recent monthly message to the world, as well as addresses, phone numbers and books for more information. 
Miracle at Medjugorje (some 20 pages on paper), complete contents of the original columns tabloid of Wayne Weible, a Lutheran protestant who received an internal call to spread the message of Our Lady, one of the worlds foremost promoters of the messages, author of several books on Medjugorje; of the tabloid are over 25 million in print. 
All messages from the beginning until today on one page – first message first, last message last (some 200 pages on paper), complete contents of the message part of the book Messages and Teachings of Mary at Medjugorje by René Laurentin and René Lejeune, translated from the French and published by the Riehle Foundation, Milford OH, U.S.A., 1988 and extended with the messages until this day from the web site of Medjugorje itself, Medjugorje - Svetiste "Kraljice Mira" (Shrine of "The Queen of Peace") and other web sites related to Medjugorje. This is the only page in the world where all messages from the beginning in 1981 until present are given chronologically, first message first, last message last, as one long Internet page that can be saved (ctrl-s), printed (ctrl-p) and searched (ctrl-f). If you have a mobile phone that can browse the Internet, this page provides an easy way to show the messages to others. If you have difficulty loading this page, try to switch the loading of images or videos to "ask" or "off" in the settings of your Internet browser. This is especially helpful on older equipment. It is recommended to save this page (ctrl-s) or the entire website (with a program like WinHTTrack or Wget) regularly, so one can read the messages in case the Internet does not work.

By plane
Cheap flights to Sarajevo have started! Cheap flights (tens of Euros including taxes) to or from Sarajevo, Split or Dubrovnik can be found with Skyscanner. The cheapest chairs you can find by choosing e.g. English, one-way tickets and then keeping the search as broad as possible, using "everywhere" and "whole year", then narrowing your search. To use "everywhere" as departure (e.g. to find out from which countries you can fly cheap to a certain destination), search for flights from that destination to "everywhere". A budget return ticket consists simply of two budget one-way tickets, so you can also arrive at e.g. Sarajevo, but depart from e.g. Split. Since normal flight companies have started also with cheap tickets, one has to look also at sites like Atp. From Sarajevo Airport you can take a bus and switch on the main road to a tram to the bus and train station in the middle of the city - the real "city centre" is at the eastern part of Sarajevo. From Split Airport run airport buses to the port/bus/train station in the city centre.

By train
Few people know, but the parish of Medjugorje has a train station at Šurmanci, on the train line from Sarajevo to Ploče. This is one of the most beautiful train lines of the Balkan, travelling through mountainous regions alongside the Neretva river through the Neretva valley. By train to Medjugorje (only in Dutch so far) gives an impression. European timetables can be found with the travel planner of Die Bahn, the German Railways, or for the mobile phone with the DB Navigator App, both are in English (the planners know no 'Šurmanci' or 'Mostar', use 'Sarajevo' or 'Ploce'). If you want to travel along the beautiful route along the Rhine, choose via 'Koblenz' in the travel planner. An Interrail ticket for 5 out of 15 days unlimited travel through Europe (€200 for youth, €264 for adults, €238 for seniors) costs half the price of a normal train return ticket to Medjugorje, is cheaper than a two way ticket of a jet liner, is valid in most high speed trains and can still be bought on the day of departure. Usually it is from Europe two days by train so you have one day left. The timetable from Sarajevo to Šurmanci, the most spectacular part, can be found at the travel planner of the Željeznice Federacije Bosne i Hercegovine, the Bosnian and Herzegovinan Rail roads. However, the rail road is made by the Austrian-Hungarian Empire in the 19th century and on this route there are frequent locomotive failures. Then another locomotive needs to come from another city, which takes hours. So if you like adventure, this is for you, but do take some extra time in your schedule. Sunset is early in Bosnia and Herzegovina, even with summer time. The resulting advice is to try to take morning trains between Sarajevo and Šurmanci to enjoy the awesome scenery. In 2015 trains leave from Šurmanci at 6.37 AM to Mostar, Sarajevo and Zagreb, 10.33 AM to Čapljina and Ploče, 6.43 PM to Mostar and Sarajevo and 10.02 PM to Čapljina. The train line ends at the Adriatic coast at Ploče. Few people know Ploče has a combined bus/train station/airport, but the airport is not developed for Medjugorje. In 2016, the railroad between Zagreb and Sarajevo was operating, however, the railroad between Sarajevo and Ploče, including Šurmanci /Medjugorje, was not operating and "under construction".

By bus
Eurolines operates international buses to Croatia and Bosnia. From Sarajevo, Split or Dubrovnik it is three hours by regional bus (from Sarajevo also by train) to Medjugorje for a few Euros. There is at least one bus directly from these cities to Medjugorje a day. E.g. In the summer of 2009 a direct bus leaves Sarajevo for Medjugorje at 4.45 PM, stopping in Mostar at the Muslim train/bus station and then at the Croatian bus station, arriving before sunset in Medjugorje. But often a quicker way to travel is to take a regional bus to a city close to Medjugorje and then take a bus from there to Medjugorje. For example, from Sarajevo to Mostar the buses go every hour on the hour. And from Mostar to Medjugorje there are 10 or so buses daily: 4 or so from the Muslim train+bus station and 6 or so from the newly rebuilt Croat bus station. If you have to travel from the Muslim station in east Mostar to the Croat bus station in west Mostar: it is a 2 km walk over the Neretva river, crossing the former front line (Boulevard). From Split or Dubrovnik the buses run at least every hour to Ploče, from Ploče buses (or train) run several times a day to Medjugorje.

Travel tip
Since cheap flights to Sarajevo have started, I advise to take a cheap flight to Sarajevo, have a beautiful train ride to Medjugorje and then have yourself picked up in Šurmanci, 5 km from the church, by car by your pension keeper of Medjugorje. Remember that sunset is early in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Šurmanci has no waiting room, buses or taxis. Čapljina, one station further, 16 km from Medjugorje, has a large waiting room, café outside and some buses and taxis. The flight departure times from e.g. Cologne to Sarajevo are not so very early, so less people have to spend a night sleeping in e.g. Cologne and more people can travel cheap in one day to Medjugorje. In 2016, since Šurmanci isn't functioning, I would recommend taking a flight or train ride to Split or Sarajevo and go by bus from there to Medjugorje as described above.
