Medjugorje · Krk Island · Zagreb

Medjugorje, located in Bosnia & Herzegovina, is the site of the 1981 Marian Apparitions. On June 24th 1981 Six children witnessed the Blessed Virgin Mary on what is now known as Apparition Hill. The apparition had a message of peace for the world, as well as a call to conversion, prayer and fasting. She appeared to them with an infant in their arms and confided ten secrets to the children. The children, now adults, some of them which continue to see her every day.

Medjugorje is a place of peace and prayer where 40 million people have visited the now popular Pilgrimage site. In 2018 Pope Francis appointed Archbishop Henryk Hoser the "Apostolic Visitor" to Medjugorje in steps to officially recognize Medjugorje as a sacred Catholic site.

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.

Also, at the base of this hill is a Blue Cross, where it is said Our Lady allegedly 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.

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.
