"Be obedient to Bishop Hoser!" Pope Francis said to me when I told him, "I am the parish priest of Medjugorje and I bring you greetings from Bishop Hoser." It was an unforgettable meeting at the end of the Congress. The Pope emphasized the importance of an open heart and warm welcome for all the pilgrims. Then His Holiness expressed his desire to greet each one of us individually. We were thrilled! When it was my turn to get closer to him, I gave him a rosary made of our Herzegovian thorns and looking at his smiling face I said in one breath: "Parish priest of Medjugorje! Mgr. Hoser sends his greetings!" When Pope Francis heard my words, he kept his hands in mine, he stopped for a moment and said: "Be obedient to Mgr. Hoser!" I guess the Pope felt my immense joy, so he repeated: "Be obedient to Mgr. Hoser". Then looking at the rosary, he asked: "Is this for me?" I said: "Yes, it's for you!"  

When I exited the hall, I almost couldn't believe what had just happened. I was thinking about his message. I had the impression that he wanted to give to me, to all the friars in the parish of Medjugorje, in fact to all the parishioners and pilgrims, a message that came straight from his heart. It is as if he was saying - by obeying Mgr. Hoser, you are being obedient to me and the Church. In the few words he said, I felt that Medjugorje is in his heart, that he cares for Medjugorje and he wants us all to respond seriously to the mission that was trusted to us. In his words I felt encouragement, but also the great responsibility we all have for Medjugorje."

Bishops call to pray the Rosary for Peace

"Last October 13 (2017) the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of the Holy Virgin Mary in Fatima (Portugal) ended. Mary's call to especially pray the rosary for the intention of peace, however certainly did not. On the contrary, her call is certainly also in the world of today of very actual significance"

Thursday November 15th 2018 - Pope Francis saved Medjugorje and permitted pilgrimages to it
(Sr. Emmanuel in her newsletter of November 2018,

Chiara Amirante in conversation with Pope Francis: "I felt the need to speak with him, because I see that some information circulating in the Vatican is not true. For example, ill-informed priests believe that Mary has already given more than 50,000 messages, which led Pope Francis to believe that she was giving several appointments each day to several visionaries to say different things. So I pointed out, "No, that's not it at all! To date, there are only 672 messages. There is the monthly message on the 25th, given to Marija for the world, and one on the 2nd received and conveyed by Mirjana." Pope Francis then told me that he had "saved" Medjugorje. In fact, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith wanted to issue a negative opinion, but he supported the Ruini Commission which expressed a positive opinion on the first apparitions.
The Holy Father said "Medjugorje is very much close to my heart!" During the press conference on the Lisbon plane, he pointed out that there were fruits, that this could not be denied. He sent Mgr. Hoser precisely because he believes that the fruits are important, and that Medjugorje must be protected. He told me that he was the one who authorized the pilgrimages. He is now rallying - for the moment through his envoy, Archbishop Hoser - to keep all that is beautiful in Medjugorje. Let us continue to pray for Pope Francis, for the Church and for all his intentions."

Well, my friends, these conversations between Pope Francis and Chiara are a real turning point for Medjugorje, and they give us so much hope!
