Medjugorje is a place in Bosnia and Herzegovina, specifically in southern Herzegovina with Mediterranean climate. The name Medjugorje is of Slavic origin and means the area between two mountains. The whole region is inhabited by Croats who received Christianity before the 13th century. In Medjugorje, in 1892 was built the parish church, dedicated to St. James, pilgrims’ patron saint. At the top of the hill Cross since 1933, stands the cross with the inscription: Jesus Christ, Redeemer of the human race, and it was built as a sign of faith, love and hope, in remembrance of the 1900 years since when Jesus died. In 1981 began alleged apparitions of Our Lady. Six young women, later named visionaries, saw on the hill Crnica, several hundred meters above the place called Podbrdo, a young woman with a child in her arms who showed them with gestures to came closer. Since then 25th June is celebrated as the anniversary of the apparitions. Medjugorje is known as a gathering place for pilgrims and annually attracts more than a million of the faithful. Everyone comes for the sake of their own needs and intentions. Although Medjugorje is not officially recognized as a shrine, Cardinal dr. Franjo Kuharic, archbishop of Zagreb, for newspaper Glas Koncila in year 1993, said: “We bishops, after a three-year-long commission study accept Medjugorje as a holy place, as a shrine. This means that we have nothing against if someone venerates the Mother of God in a manner and in accordance with the Church’s doctrine and faith … Therefore leaving that to further study. Church does not hurry.”
