NOTA DE PRENSA
CAMPO DE GOLF “LA MARQUESA” 

La Virgen bosnia de Medjugorge ya tiene un lugar de peregrinación en España o al menos “un lugar perfecto para encontrarse con la Virgen” según las palabras del sacerdote, José Antonio Mérida, pronunciadas hoy en el acto de apertura de la plaza ajardinada dedicada a La Gospa (Madre), como también se conoce a la virgen bosnia.
Desde las 11 horas de hoy y en pleno centro del campo de golf de Rojales, la plaza citada acoge una talla de la virgen, replica exacta de la original, de un metro y 60 centímetros de altura, realizada con el mismo tipo de piedra y tallada en Bosnia-Herzegovina. En un emotivo acto, los sacerdotes José Antonio Mérida y Patrick…….? procedieron a la bendición de la plaza religiosa llena de simbolismos y de signos, “un trozo de Medjugorge en Rojales”.

Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow: „It is very inspiring to come to Medjugorje and to see so many young people praying for hours on their knees before Jesus“

date: 25.01.2016.

Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow from Scotland is the founder of the humanitarian organisation Mary's Meals. It was in 1983, that he discovered Medjugorje and that was what changed his life as well as the lives of his parents. During the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Magnus began to bring the humanitarian aid which eventually grew to the establishment of the humanitarian organisation Mary's Meals. This organisation reached in 2015, the number of 1.035 637 children who have everyday meal in their school in the poorest countries of the world. Magnus received several international acknowledgements for his work. He said that this apostolate of Mary’s Meals was not initiated with the purpose of becoming famous: „I am not interested in the success in the eyes of the world. I believe we should all try to become successful in the terms of our own holiness. That has nothing to do with becoming world famous or with performing some obvious, dramatically good deeds. It is all about faithfulness, with our vicinity with God and our decision for Him to be at the first place in our lives“, said Magnus who gave a testimony at the Youth Festival last year here in Medjugorje: „I really like coming for the Youth Festival each year. There are many beautiful things every year, but also some new ones. The Youth Festival thrills me each time even though I know many people who converted here and whose lives we changed here in Medjugorje. There are so many fruits coming from this place. We all need messages of Medjugorje even though those aren't anything new, those messages are from the Gospel. Our Lady is inviting us to return to that message of Gospel. We need that call, it is return to Her Son, therefore I find it so inspiring to come here and to see so many young people praying on their knees before Jesus, as that is what the world needs now so much“.

Fruits of Medjugorje in the world

date: 24.01.2016.

Sana Nassar from Lebanon is the founder of the non-profitable organisation "Friends of Mary, the Queen of Peace". Sana said that the fruits of Medjugorje are very impressive in Lebanon: „I know it is Gospa's wish for this to be the same all over the world. She would like her plan to be realised in the whole world, and that is for all of the people to get to know her Son Jesus, to start loving Him and to decide for Heaven. She is doing that in the very strong way, in Lebanon but in every other country where she is present“. Sana said that the youth is very responsive to Our Lady's call: „That is such a big proof that Our Lady here in Medjugorje has initiated something really great. Many priests and bishops told me when they see young people praying in this way, or fasting, which is not so easy for them, that it really fills them with hope. Young people are coming here and praying for hours. Youth in Lebanon or at the other places are attending the prayer meetings deriving from Medjugorje and often pray on their knees for hours. For me, that is a 'miracle', a 'grace' coming from Medjugorje, which eventually gives us will to do what Gospa wants us to do and to pray. We need to work the most with our youth and Gospa also gives them so much attention, as they are our future, the youth is the triumph of Gospa's heart“.

Prayer educational seminar for girls held in Medjugorje

Prayer educational seminar for girls held in Medjugorje

date: 20.01.2016.

In the period from January 15-17, 2016 around twenty girls from the various parts of Herzegovina participated at the seminar held in Domus Pacis in Medjugorje, organised by the Franciscan School Sisters from Mostar. The leader of the seminar was Sr. Danijela Brekalo, and girls spent time in prayer, everyday celebration of Holy Mass, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and prayer of the Rosary with meditations on Apparition Hill. One of the participants said: „I became aware of myself and how much God loves me and how He gives me all in the right time for me. Besides talking to my dear sister, what really helped me were lectures on love, prayer of Rosary, Holy Confession and Holy Mass, as well as e time on Apparition Hill. I would like to encourage all those who are reading this to pray to God in the days of joy, but especially in the days of sorrow and pain, as that prayer is really answered in the best way. Also, be patient, God is not going to do something at the time when we want, but exactly at the time best for that and trust me, it is always better than anything expected. I would like to use this occasion to thank Francsican School Sisters from Mostar who are conducting such beautiful and amazing retreats. Also, all those who feel desire or need to experience something like this, I would like to advise to do that as you are certainly not going to lose anything, but in return will gain a lot“.

Married couple Tereza and Miroslav Ljubic: "People find peace and prayer in Medjugorje"

Married couple Tereza and Miroslav Ljubic: "People find peace and prayer in Medjugorje"

date: 17.01.2016.

The spiritual renewal of families was recently held in Medjugorje when whole families came and there were around 200 participants, 90 children among them. Tereza and Miroslav Ljubic from Kastel Luksic came and two of them fostered two children after being in a marriage without their own children. They spoke about their testimony of faith and relying on Jesus and the help of God in the programme of radio Medjugorje. Miroslav said that he came here for the first time ten years ago: " I saw that people were coming here for one day, but I feel one cannot have experience of Medjugorje in one day only, one needs to stay here longer. You can see how people find peace here, they find prayer, when so many people are praying Rosary, miracles need to happen. Medjugorje is a place of prayer, of special relationship towards Our Lady, while the biggest grace is in confessionals." Tereza said that they as family are everyday praying Rosary: "Rosary was hard for children in the beginning as they were not in the centre of attention. Today, each of them says one decade every time we pray. We are directing them to faith, to know that only faith could help them in their lives."

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

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“.
