Medjugorje is a Sanctuary

Medjugorje is a Sanctuary

On February 25, 1994, Pope John Paul II wrote to his friends, Marek and Sophia Skwarnicki:

“Dear Marek and Sophia, I thank you very much for both letters. Sophia is writing me about the Balkans. I guess Medjugorje is better understood these days. This kind of ‘insisting’ of our Mother is better understood today when we see with our very eyes the enormousness of the danger. At the same time, the response in the way of a special prayer—and that coming from people all around the world – fills us with hope that here, too, the good will prevail. Peace is possible…I thank you because I myself am very much attached to that place. It can be that there is only one such sanctuary in the world. Pope John Paul II”

Marek, commenting on the Pope’s letter, writes:

“This kind of ‘insisting’ of our Mother refers to years of consistent messages, repeated through Medjugorje apparitions, which some adversaries deemed impossible.”
