Leonard Orec (born in Posuski Gradac, 1928 – died in Zagreb, 2002). Fr. Leonard served in Medjugorje from 1988 to 1991, in that period he served as a parish priest for more than one year. During those three years, he indeed left a permanent mark as a wise and experienced priest, and fervour promoter of Our Lady’s messages of peace and reconciliation. In 1992, he established humanitarian association “Medjugorje – Mir”, that is still active. Since 1997, Fr. Leonard was active in the General Curia of the Franciscan Order in Split, until 2001, when he got seriously ill. It was in those last days that he had celebrated his 50th Jubilee of Priesthood and then he died in Zagreb on January 21, 2002. He was buried on January 23, in Posusje.

The Anniversary of the solemn blessing of Medjugorje parish church

The Anniversary of the solemn blessing of Medjugorje parish church

date: 14.01.2016.

This year we are remembering 47 years since the church of St. James was built and solemnly blessed. After the parish was founded in 1892, the first parish church, very spacious and beautiful for the circumstances back then, was soon completed in 1897. Due to the unstable ground on which it was built, the walls began to crack and the building began to sink, so immediately after the World War I, parishioners began to think about the construction of the new church. The works initiated in 1934, and were completed on January 19, 1969, when this church was blessed. The church of St. James today is the centre of sacramental and prayer life not just of the parishioners, but of pilgrims from all over the world.

The experiences of Medjugorje pilgrims

The experiences of Medjugorje pilgrims

date: 13.01.2016.

These first days of January are a period that is a bit more quiet, with few smaller groups from Korea, the United States, Italy and Germany. It was not so long ago that a young girl from Bavaria, Maria, arrived to Medjugorje. This is her fifth visit and this is what she told us: „When one arrives here, feels as this is indeed one Church, regardless of where did someone come from, that this is one community, one Body of Christ, gathered in the atmosphere of peace that comes only from Heaven. I feel that these messages we hear are surely very important to us youth and I also regularly read the messages that the Queen of Peace gives us. Those messages can sometimes seem difficult, but when it comes to me, I feel my progress is happening as I was brought up in the religious family and raised in the faith ever since my birth. Nevertheless, monthly confession, reading of the Holy Bible always requires certain victory over ourselves, a kind of renunciation, but once we get over that, it becomes the beauty“.
