Medjugorje*, Croatia is where Mary, the Blessed Mother of Jesus Christ, allegedly appeared to six children ages 10 -17 (2 boys and 4 girls) on June 24, 1981, and has reportedly continued to appear every day since. Millions upon millions of pilgrims have made the trip to Medjugorje and, having seen miracles and experienced physical and spiritual healings, return home with a renewed faith, strengthened prayer-life, a sense of true peace and much more.
The visionaries say that Mary is coming to invite the whole world to a change of heart - conversion - or a return to God. She asked for an increase in faith through prayer, fasting, reconciliation and penance in order to bring about true peace in every heart. Her call is to all people of all faiths. Catholics, Christians and Muslims among other faiths have all been attracted to Mary's plan for a return to God and a unity among faiths. This June 25, 2004, marked the 23rd anniversary of the apparitions.
Wayne Weible was a Protestant journalist in the early 80's when he heard about the apparition site, and now he devotes all his energies into traveling the world and writing books to promote awareness of these Heavenly visits to Earth. Wayne Weible, listening to an inner call from Mary Herself, agreed to devote all of his energy into spreading the messages of Mary in Medjugorje. He has written 4 books and gives speaking tours all over the world, and he will be here to talk to Washington, DC the weekend of September 10 - 12, 2004! His itinerary is as follows:
