When does the Novena of the Queen of Peace of Medjugorje begin?
The Novena to the Queen of Peace of Medjugorje, for the next few days, will give us food for thought, on why the Marian apparitions, which began on June 24th 1981, around 6:00 pm, and still in progress, changed the fortunes of ‘humanity.
It was the fourth consecutive day that Our Lady appeared to the visionaries of Medjugorje. That day, in particular, she appeared to them three times.
She spoke of the priests and said that she hoped so much that they believed more and more in the Word of God and that they had faith and strength to pass it on to the people.
The seers, fearful that others, hearing their stories about the Virgin, would consider them liars or even mad, asked the Madonna for help, who said to them: “Do not be afraid of anything!”

Prayer to the Queen of Peace:
Mother of God and our Mother Mary, Queen of Peace! You have come among us to guide us to God.

In your hands, we put our hands, so that, through our miseries and difficulties, he can accompany us to him. For Christ our Lord. Amen.
