I'm embarissed to say, that until 6mo ago, I'd never heard of it. This has come to me by way of our Deacon and his wife as well as though our parish pilgramige director.
They are always talking about it. And the stories are just amazing! Our Deacon's wife loaned me a book "Medjugorje" by Wayne Weible. He is a "protestant journalist investigating what could be the most significan't miracle since the Day of the Pentecost."
What are your feelings? "On June 24th, 1981, six children in the mountain village of Medjugorje in central Yugoslavia reproted that the Virgin Mary has appeared to them on a hillside. Allegedly she has been returning every day since."
I'm going to read the book on my vacation. Have you read it?
Would you consider a pilgramige of this sort? Our Deacon and his family have been there 4 times and the parishoner who leads pilgramiges has been there 17 times. All of them go on and on about how wonderful Medjugorje is! Their visions sound so beautiful!!
I am a little skeptical---not my doubt that our Blessed Virgin appeared to six children, she has a history of apprearing to the weakest and down troden and the youngest. But are the lights like the Northern Lights? Is there some kind of scientific magnetic pull in our earth creating illusians? KWIM?? She appears everyday for the last 20 years and next to nobody in America has talked about this?? I've lived and traveled all over this country, I just find that odd. Our pilgramage leader said that people talk about it all over the globe but he seldom hears a word mumbled in America----I am glad he said that actually b/c I was beginning to think I wasn't listening to God's call!
