It is amazing that the ongoing events around the Marian apparitions in Medjugorje , a place of pilgrimage in Bosnia-Herzegovina, last until now. Medjugorje became well known all over the world.
On Midsummer Day of 1981 six children saw a floating woman on a hill in the small, at that time Yugoslavian village. The woman was pointing to a newborn baby, she wore in her arm. Out of fear the children ran away.
Bob Gardner: CONVERSION STORY
I was raised Episcopalian in a family with seven children. I married into the Roman Catholic faith in 1969 at the age of 20. My wife, Jacci, was 18. At 12, Jacci had made a promise to the Blessed Virgin that she would not kiss until she was 16 if Mother Mary would find her a good husband. Around the same time, when I was about 14, I found a medal of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in the woods behind my house. I think now that my finding that medal, and keeping it to this day, has played a role in the relationship Mother Mary has nurtured with me. I think Our Lady found Jacci a good cross and that Mother Mary has been trying patiently for decades to turn me into a good husband.
