In an interview that Milona von Habsburg gave in November 1994, she said concerning the youth and Medjugorje:
â€œIn Medjugorje the veils fell from my eyes and I saw the poor state of my soul, but God removed my ragged clothes and dressed me in new ones. Christ and Mary were present in my life before, but in an ordinary way. Now my whole life turns around Jesus and His Mother. God’s will is what motivates me in everything. Thanks to Our Lady, I know how to recognize God’s will and it truly is wonderful how He works in me. Here in Medjugorje, the Mother of God is offering to mankind the reply to all those questions that young people ask themselves, about love, peace and reconciliation. Young people have always been on the look-out for these values and it is here that they can be found. Here, they find all the answers about the sense of life.â€
Milona gave up her earthly title of Duchess from Bavaria in Southern Germany and comfortable life to follow the Heavenly Queen, the Queen of Peace in Medjugorje. She was Fr. Slavko Barbaric’s secretary and she has translated throughout the years for the visionaries and others in Medjugorje. She has devoted her life to Our Lady of Medjugorje.
