The story of Medjugorje is well known to most Catholics. In 1981, six teenagers were playing in the hills between the villages Medjugorje and Bijakovići, where the Virgin Mary appeared and talked with them. When children told their parents, the very first reaction was skepticism. Yet, this occurrence ddint stop, and Virgin Mary kept appearing again and again until the skeptics have lost any possibility of criticism. It’s estimated that over 15 million people have visited this little place. Medjugorje has become one of the most important Marian shrines in the world.
