Spiritual Leader & Guide:

Fr. Zlatko Sudac
Fr. Zlatko Sudac

He is a mystic who bears the stigmata on his wrists, feet, and side, as well as a bleeding cross on his forehead, all of which have been verified by Vatican doctors as not being of human origin. Having grown up in the Croatian town of Vrbnik as an average youth, Fr. Sudac (pronounced Soo-dahts) heard the call to the priesthood in his early 20s when he attended a seminar by Fr. Emile Tardiff. Fr. Sudac was ordained on June 29th, 1998 and was assigned to a parish on the island of Pag. Immersed in the parish life, he found himself very active and busy, but eleven months after his ordination something very unusual happened. On the 7th of May, 1999, Fr. Sudac received the first mark of the stigmata, in the form of a cross "imprinted" on his forehead. Fr. Sudac's Bishop sent him to the Gemelli Clinic in Rome, the hospital that treats the Holy Father, where he remained for about 40 days. He was subjected to intense investigation by a team of experts from a variety of medical disciplines and underwent numerous tests and procedures. The final report from the Gemelli Clinic concluded that Fr. Sudac was of sound mind and that, while the team could not confirm that the cross on Fr. Sudac's forehead was of Divine origin, it could state that there was no known medical explanation for the formation of that cross. Almost a year and a half after Fr. Sudac received the cross on his forehead, on October 4th, 2000, Fr. Sudac received the wounds of Christ on his wrists, feet and side. Interestingly, October 4th is the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, the first known stigmatist. Today, Fr. Sudac is the retreat leader at Bethany Retreat House on the island of Losinj. In addition, he has a natural gift for art and creates prints that adorn churches, chapels and private homes. Still a young man, Fr. Sudac places the future of his ministry in the hands of God. He is a priest in good standing with the Church, and he humbly submits to the authority of the Church in all matters related to his gifts and ministry.

Days3 to 6
Sunday - Wednesday - November 11 - 14: Experiencing Medjugorje

The most beautiful feature of Medjugorje is its simplicity, and its peace. While in Medjugorje, you will have the opportunity to experience your faith grow and share in the faith journey of pilgrims from all over the world. The local guide will accompany your group throughout your stay in the village.

Some activities that will accompany you in your spiritual journey:

Attend Daily Mass: Each morning, at 10:00A.M, your group will assemble at St. James Church for Mass (English-Speaking). At the end of each Mass, regardless of language, there is a blessing of the religious articles that you have with you.

On Feast Days, and Sundays: English Mass is at Noon

Climb Apparition Hill: This mountainous hill is where the visionaries first encountered Our Lady. Also, at the base of this hill is a Blue Cross, where it is said Our Lady appeared to the children while they hid from the communist police in the early days of the alleged apparitions. When climbing, your group is invited to recite the Rosary, pausing five times for each decade of the Rosary. At the top of the hill, you will witness the exact location of the first alleged apparition of Our Lady to the visionaries, and enjoy private time in prayer.

Climb Mt. Krizevac (Cross Mountain): In 1933, the villagers built a 30' high cross atop a mountain to commemorate Jesus' passion and death on the cross. Your group will have the opportunity to climb this mountain, and venerate that very cross. When climbing, your group is invited to pray the Stations of the Cross (to meditate on Jesus' suffering Road to Calvary), pausing fifteen times for each Station.

Apparitions: Each evening at 5PM or 6PM daylight savings time, your group will join the villagers and fellow pilgrims of Medjugorje in saying the Rosary as all anxiously await the alleged arrival of Our Lady to the visionaries. Following the apparition, at 6:40P.M (5:40 P.M. during Daylight Savings Time), feel free to stay at St. James Church and attend the Croatian Mass. Following the Croatian Mass, there is a Blessing of the Sick. Adoration of the Blessed

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament: Our Lady has always called us to be close to her Son. For this, you will have the opportunity to adore the Blessed Sacrament at the outside altar of St. James Church. Adoration is held on Tuesdays and Saturdays; Veneration of the Cross is held on Fridays inside the church. Additionally, there is an Adoration Chapel on the grounds of St. James Church. Adoration is held here in the afternoon hours.

Prayer at the Statue of the Risen Christ: Located on the grounds of St. James Church, is the bronze statue of the Risen Christ. Many pilgrims sit and pray on the benches surrounding this peaceful statue. This statue miraculously seeps droplets of water at all times of the day, out of Christ's right knee.

About Medjugorje

On June 25, 1981, in the mountain village of Medjugorje in Herzegovina, Our Lady allegedly appeared to six children. She identified herself as the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of Peace, and continues to allegedly appear to several of the visionaries. Her mission is to promote peace with God and mankind, through her Son, Jesus. Mary's own words to the children explained, "I have come to tell the world that God exists." 206 Tours has been arranging pilgrimages to Medjugorje since 1985.
