Badija Island ยท Medjugorje

Badija Island:
A small island in Korcula Archipelago that features 14th century Franciscan Monastery, some nice beaches and swimming spots as well as a good walks to the top of the hill with great views. It is the one of the largest island in the Archipelago situated on the east side of Korcula Old Town , about 15 minutes taxi boat ride from Korcula's harbour. The Island covers the area of about one square km and is covered by dense true maquis vegetation, pine and cypress trees. There is a tarmac path around the whole Island great for some walking or mountain biking offering nice views and several handy swimming spots. Historically, the island was first mentioned in14th century in some letters sent by the priest Vlaho Ivanovic from Korcula, who lived here as a monk in the Monastery. Some stone monuments found on the island are proof that Romans were also here long before.

Fr. Jozo Zovko
Fr. Jozo Zovko

In 1981 Father Jozo Zovko OFM, was a parish priest at St. James Church in Medjugorje. He was away for the first 7 days of alleged apparitions, and upon his return, he initially did not believe children. Years later in his homily he shared: " I wondered Why don't they (the children) listen to me? I never thought; why don't I hear them? Then one day it happened; they came to the church and I went to the hill. 'The apparitions are a reality. I heard the voice in my heart. 'Go out. Protect the children.' The children needed my protection. So I went back to the church and took the children to the rectory. It was then, that Our Lady came much closer to my heart." 'The children said: 'Our Lady will come to the church.' - and our Lady came blessing us all.' God needs us. And without us His flame cannot be released.' Because of a sermon he had given, which was seen as an insurrection against the Communist government, Father Jozo was arrested and sentenced to three and a half years of hard labor. This sentence was later commuted to eighteen months, and once released, pilgrims attended his services were packed in Tihaljina and later in Siroki Brijeg. Pilgrims could not imagine going to Medjugorje without attending Fr. Jozo Zovko's tremendous healing prayers. We look forward to seeing Fr. Jozo on a 5 day retreat at a Monastery in Badija Island!

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.
