Concerning the formation of prayer groups, Our Lady said:
It is Our Lady’s desire that many prayer groups are formed across the entire world. In Medjugorje, Our Lady began guiding the newly formed prayer groups. The witness of the prayer groups inspired people from all over the world to start prayer groups in their own homes and parish communities. The simple format of the Medjugorje prayer groups helped to form the foundation of these prayer groups. Our Lady said that through the prayer groups Her plan would be fully realized.
