On June 23, 2011, the Feast of Corpus Christi, thousands of pilgrims who had arrived to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje, processed through the village of Medjugorje, behind the Blessed Sacrament, praying and singing. Many of the villagers set up altars along the route of the procession and the procession would stop at different houses to do a blessing upon the village. It was a beautiful experience for all those who participated with the thousands of other pilgrims from all over the world, prayerfully following behind Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. For many, it prepared their hearts in a much deeper way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Our Lady here in Medjugorje.

Part of the massive crowds that were present to be with Our Lady during the celebration of Her 30th Anniversary of the Apparitions here in Medjugorje. The Mass was held outside, on the altar at the back of the church, but thousands of pilgrims completely surrounded the church in order to find their own spot to pray and participate in the Holy Mass on the June 25th.

Although there were tens of thousands of pilgrims from all over the world present here in the village of Medjugorje for the 30th anniversary of Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje, thousands of Croatians from all over the surrounding areas pilgrimaged here during these special days of grace, many walking for several miles to be present with Our Lady and give their thanksgiving of the past 30 years of grace they have received through Our Lady’s presence among them.

Ivanka, Marija, Ivan, Mirjana, and Jakov were all present during the Mass at St. James Church on June 25, 2011. At the end of Mass, they led the pilgrims in special prayers. Vicka, the only visionary missing, was injured during this time when speaking to pilgrims and not able to be present with the rest of the six visionaries.

Caritas Mission House in Medjugorje

The Community of Caritas Mission House in Medjugorje, preparing for the 30th Anniversary of Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje. The large billboards placed on two sides of the Mission House brought many more pilgrims into the Mission House during these days of celebration. They all left the Mission House with bags full of material about Our Lady’s messages and grateful hearts for all they received to help them in their journey in Our Lady’s school of prayer and love.

Inside and outside the Mission House the night of June 25, 2011. Thousands of pilgrims crowded into the Mission House to receive Our Lady’s June 25th message, given to Marija Lunetti, on the anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions. Thousands of message cards in Croatian, English, Italian, German, Polish, French, Spanish, Slovak, and Portuguese were given out that night. In less than 1 ½ days, we printed and gave out over 16,000 message cards to pilgrims from all over the world.

The crowds were so great the night of June 25 that as soon as the cards were being printed, they were snatched up by eager pilgrims wanting with all their hearts to read and begin to prayerfully put into practice the words Our Lady gave that night.

Outside the Mission House on the night of June 25, 2011. Many of the Caritas pilgrims who were on pilgrimage during the 30th anniversary helped to pass out the message cards, even the youngest ones. It was a highlight for many of the pilgrims as they stood outside the Mission House handing out the message cards or walked through the streets of Medjugorje, going into restaurants and shops and seeing the excitement and surprise of all those they handed the message cards to from all over the world.

  1. Firstly, may I just say ……Way to go Father Corapi!  How wonderful to hear the words of what my heart has been saying throughout this “pandemic” the antichrist is playing us against each other. Friends, families, communities, religions…….all at each other’s throats about what is right and wrong, people being separated and enclosed. We know it is wrong, we pray our hearts out for change but there are many frustrations when we often have to abide by these so called leaders and stay indoors, wear a mask etc.  I will keep on praying but I worry I am offending our Mother’s Immaculate Heart and Our Lord’s Sacred Heart by abiding to these demands.  God bless and keep you all at Caritas, you’ve become my only source of hope in finding the truth and guiding me toward a chance of salvation ?

    It  is really good to know the facts. Thanks to a Friend of Medjugorje for his big concern about the truth and the facts that support it.This so calloed pandemic is a big lie in so many ways that is very difficult for a lot of people to see.

  3. My father was gravely ill this past October. My mother and I went to see about getting a headstone made for the grave site. The gentleman we spoke to has been in the business of “death” for many decades. He told us normally people in his profession are given monthly stats on death rates; He has talked to other business owners also in his line of work and no one is being given the numbers since December 2019. He said he has talked to people all over the country and no one in the business of “death’ have had an increase in funeral arrangements ie. funeral homes,burials,ect. He said it is not adding up. His business has been the same, there has not been a spike in his business which one would think there would be if so many people dying. He is fully aware of lying voices and trying to bring the truth of anyone who will listen.

  4. How wonderful if i was there in this moment with you dear friends at Medjugorje? I am longing to come over there soon. still i was not able to find money. I am sure God will help me one day. Please pray for me.

  5. Thank you for all the Good News of the visions of Our Lady of Medjugorje. I am filled with peace and deep faith. I am convinced through Mother Mary peace will reign in our hearts and the world. Please pray for the healing of my daughter and my husband.

  6. I only pray that someday I will have the money to go there to experience the presence of God and Mama Mary.I belong to a third world country and we dont have much money to be able to travel to other lands.I know Mama Mary is here with us–She loves us just as the Lord Jesus Christ loves us so much.I am contented to see the pictures of the Holy places in Medjugorje and Alabama.May all the people who work hard to make the messages be known by people all over the world be forever be blessed.Thank u

    The incredible growth in Mej since I was there twenty-three years ago is an overwhelming boost to my faith.

    Thank you for the great spiritual help you are giving us through the messages of our Blessed Mother, Queen of Peace. May she give us peace first in the heart than in the country. I was really, spiritually touched by my pilgrimage to Medugorje. Sr. Mary Bertha,f.m.a.

    Gracias por compartir tan bellas fotos a los que no se nos hizo ir. Sin duda es un regalazo que la Sma.Virgen nos da gracias a personas como ustedes. Un carinoso saludo desde Mexico donde se le ama tanto a la Sma. Virgen Maria de Guadalupe.

  16. Manuella Chediac

    Excellent web about Our Lady Gospa,, She is with us always and thank you for sharing all blessings given from Her to spread Her words to all over the world, that what She wanted and asked for it always.. Thank you again and GOD bless you all, Manuella from Lebanon , Beirut

  17. This is simply amazing. I have been following this site since the last 25 years and I have strong devotion to our Blessed Mother. Keep up the good work and God bless the Visionaries who share their message.

  18. My heart was in Medjugorje and at Caritas during the 30th Anniversary, I longed to be in both places. It is so wonderful that we have mej.com to be informed of all of the Graces that Our Lady showered down on us. Hearing the talks of each message is wonderful. Just hearing the voices of A Friend of Mej. and all the other members of Caritas helps me to stay on track. Thank you so much. God Bless…. CL

  19. You can never put enough pictures on here!! I’ll check mej.com tomorrow to see if you have any more you want to ADD!!!

  20. Caritas- thanks so much for sharing these beautiful pictures and for keeping us all informed – you are truly a great blessing! May God Bless You All.:)

  21. Great talk!  I work in a hospital, this is so true. It is more of a spiritual demonic virus/bacteria. We are not protected by a mask, not hand sanitizer but by prayer and clean your spiritual soul through confession.

  22. Your comparison of deaths from year to year is true. In addition I’ve tracked the deaths since the virus started.  There is a drop off of deaths as much as 50%+ over the weekends.  The same comparison as yours is true since those additional deaths never show up on Monday/Tuesday or any day of the week to make up for the drop of deaths over the weekend.  As they say “Figures don’t lie just liars figure”.
