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.
At the second apparition, the Madonna was without the child in her arms; he gave off a great light and so much serenity.
The Virgin Mary beckoned to the boys, so that they could approach her. These, after a few steps, fell to their knees and began to pray.
Mary prayed with them and, after having spent some time talking and answering their questions, greeted them saying: “Goodbye, my Angels!”, Promising to come back again.
Ivan Ivankovic and Milka Pavlovic, from the second day on, no longer saw the Madonna.With the other four boys they saw her, instead (Marius Pavlovic and Jakov Colo).

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. By him, impose grace on us so that, on your example, we can not only say: “Let it be of me according to your Word”, but also put it into practice. 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.
The recitation of the Veni Creator Spiritus and the Glorious Mysteries follows.
“Dear children! Today, I am with you in a special way and I bring you my maternal blessing of peace. I pray for you and intercede for you with God, so that you understand that each of you is a bringer of peace. You cannot have peace if your heart is not at peace with God. For this reason, little children, pray, pray, pray, because prayer is the foundation of your peace. Open your heart and give time to the Lord, let him be your friend. When creating a true friendship with God, no storm can destroy it. Thank you for having responded to my call! “(Message of June 25, 1997).
The Litanies to the Virgin Mary follow.
Final prayer: Lord, you are the only source of life, the only one who can quench our thirst for love and friendship. Thank you, because in your humility you have decided to give yourself to your people in the Holy Mass, in the sacraments and in the blessing, through the person of the priest.
Today, we ask for your blessing on all the priests who carry out their ministry in this Shrine of the Queen of Peace , so that they may increasingly discover the power of faith, by which you will grant them everything they ask of you and why they become true carriers of peace, of that peace that will spring from their deeper friendship with you.Amen.
