Our Lady invites each person who goes to Medjugorje individually, and for a reason. Going to Medjugorje is a special calling, and a special gift that you also will share with God\’s blessing, and hopefully you will have a chance to do it all over again. The English Mass is said every morning at 10:00am and is really a profound experience. One of the essential activities in Medjugorje is the climb of the Apparition Hill (Podbrdo), with a chance to pray the Joyful, and Sorrowful mysteries of the rosary marked by beautiful bronze plaques. One of the stops on the ascend is a large wooden cross which marks the spot of the first message Our Lady gave to Marija. The message was: “Peace, Peace, and Peace! Be reconciled! Only Peace. Make your peace with God among yourselves. For that, it is necessary to believe, to pray, to fast, and to go to confession.” After the climb to the Apparition Hill, the climb to the top of the Cross Mountain (Mt. Krizevac) is one of the unique experiences. It is a difficult climb for even the healthest, and it is amazing to hear that virtually everyone who started the climb, no matter what their physical condition was, made it to the top. It is a welcome site to see a sky high Cross when you finally reach the top. After a full and bonding day we will make our return to Dubrovnik feeling a noblest and happiest persons for the blessing we received by spending our time and visiting Medjugorje.
