Medjugorje, Heaven on Earth

Contributed By AlenLet me invite you on a journey to HEAVEN ON EARTH...

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!

Visit if you need some more information about traveling to Medjugorje. Medjugorje travel portal allows pilgrims and travellers to book Medjugorje hotels, as well as tours and activities in Medjugorje. Site is new but information there is correct and detailed.

When you visit Medjugorje there is a few places whom you must visit like to the south west of the Apparition Hill lies this haven of serenity, where one is supposed to strictly maintain silence, except in the area where speaking is allowed. Open from 9 in the morning till 4 in the evening, the Oasis of Peace is quite simply an ocean of tranquility in the midst of the hordes of pilgrims.

Enter through the gate and make your way to the Chapel right at the back, where the Lord is worshiped in the Blessed Sacrament. Be sure to stop by at the speaking area and the water closets close by before entering the Chapel. Near the back gate is a small enclosure for pilgrims to stop by for a brief respite from the heat.

Turn right when you step out of the back gate and take the dirt trail that will bring you to St. James Church. The path from the left of the back gate takes you to Our Lady of Sacred Heart - House of Prayer, a retreat for priests run by Pat and Nancy Latta.
The path veering towards the right from the front gate brings you to Cenacolo, which is a drug rehabilitation centre founded by Sister Elvira.

Join millions and see why people choose Medjugorje when they are looking for peace in them soul.
