The church of St. James in Medjugorje, and what we can learn from it…

Saint James Church in Medjugorje, July 15, 2011
What have these two steeples witnessed for the past 30 years, and what do they teach us?
It was here in this church that the villagers began to gather after the Medjugorje apparitions started and soon, through Our Lady’s guidance, an evening service was started with the Rosary at 6:00 PM, Our Lady’s apparition at 6:40 PM, then followed by Croatian Mass. Our Lady guided the visionaries and villagers in this schedule which She has asked to be kept permanent. More importantly, Our Lady gave direction to the visionaries and villagers in the spiritual life so that they could be witnesses of Her messages and of Her presence here. Our Lady of Medjugorje said on December 13, 1984:
Understanding Our Lady’s Messages

This is why Our Lady thanked those who remain firm to Her plan “here” and who do not betray Her presence.

Except for the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the death of the last apostle, the messages and apparitions of Medjugorje are the most important event in history in nearly 2,000 years for the following three reasons:
1. They are the most frequent apparitions ever.
2. Our Lady will give messages from Medjugorje as never in history since the beginning of the world.
3. They are the last apparitions on earth.
The plan of Medjugorje is beyond our total comprehension but through prayer, we can receive glimpses of its magnitude.
