|Medjugorje, Heaven on Earth|
|Siroki Brijeg, Fr. Jozo||30|
To feel the presence of the DIVINE in your daily life, in order take it with you, your family and all around you. Medjugorje...the sun feels as close as to be touched, the clouds as a fairytale picture, land wide and green as a portret of Monet.
Medjugorje is a fascinating little town in the gorgeous hills of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Literally meaning 'area between two mountains', this sleepy village exploded on the international map in 1981 when six children saw an apparition of the Virgin Mary.
It is indeed a humbling sight to see pilgrims trudge up the hill, all around the year, day and night, sometimes even bare foot and hardly equipped for the long and arduous climb, but praying all the time, lost in silence and meditation.
Lush forests amid beautiful mountains and picturesque waterfalls impart a soothing calm that will invigorate both Catholic pilgrims and travelers alike in Medjugorje!
