In 1981, six children in the region now known as Bosnia and Herzegovina claimed to have had seven days of visits from Our Blessed Mother. They described her a young mother, with Child in her arms, glowing with an ethereal beauty which cannot be described with human words, a beauty which the Lady told them was because she loves. Our Lady of Medjugorje's messages for the children were simple: pray, fast, peace which only Christ can give, faith as the foundation of everything, and conversion of sinners.
The children said that the Blessed Mother continued to visit them daily for years, and the apparition's location has been a popular pilgrimage destination for almost 30 years. The Lady's exhortation to devote much time to prayer, to attend monthly Confession, to attend daily Mass, and to fast on a regular basis are all spiritual goals Catholics can commit to in order to gird ourselves for spiritual battle and to help us on our journey to heaven.
A medal emblazoned with the beautiful image of Our Lady of Medjugorje is an ideal gift for a Catholic friend of family member who would appreciate wearing a daily reminder of these desires of Our Lady.
