Medjugorje (which means “between the hills”), is a small mountain town located in western Bosnia and Herzegovina, in the Herzegovina region, close to the border of Croatia. Since June 24, 1981, it has become a popular religious pilgrimage due to reports of apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary to six local children.
In the history of the Roman Catholic Church, Mary has appeared in apparition many times throughout the ages, the most recognizable names being Guadalupe (Mexico), La Sallette, and Lourdes (France), Knock (Ireland) and Fatima (Portugal). But never in recorded Marian history has she appeared daily for so long a period of time, to so many chosen visionaries, with such profound global results as in Medjugorje.
These beautiful pewter medals represent the first vision of Gospa (Mary) to the six visionaries. These medals were blessed by the Virgin Mary in her apparition to the visionary, Ivan on August 10th, 2018 in the “blessing of the articles”. These medals have the word Medjugorje on the bottom. They measure 1″ inch wide x 1 1/2″ long. They come with a 24″ inch chain and organza bag for storage along with the story of Medjugorje.
