Testimony by Angel Maria Garcia Alvarez, architect designer

Angel Maria Garcia Alvarez (from Madrid, Spain), architect designer of the new crown offered to St. James’ in Medjugorje at the occasion of the 24th anniversary of the apparitions (also designer of the magnificent Magna Monstrance offered to the Shrine in 2001) gave a testimony about how this project came about and how it was realised. The crown was blessed and the statue was officially crowned by Fr. Branko Radoš, pastor of Medjugorje, after the solemn evening Mass on June 25, 2005, the day of the 24th anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions in Medjugorje, in the presence of two bishops: Mons. Geevarghese Mar Divannasios Ottathengil, catholic syro-malankara bishop of the diocese Bathery, Kerala (India), and Mons. Jerome Gapangwa Nteziryayo, retired bishop of Uvira (Congo).

Collaborators of the Queen of Peace

A prayer initiative called “Collaborators of the Queen of Peace” was born in November 2004, in Zadar (Croatia). It was inspired by the repeated calls of Our Lady: “Pray, pray, pray”. The fundamental characteristic of this prayer initiative is to find half an hour a day for prayer.

New members are joining progressively, and today there are 600 of them. All of them are aware of their promise that their day is not over before they have found half an hour for God in prayer. It can be Rosary, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament or other prayers, or just to stay in the church for half an hour – even without words.

By now, this initiative has been accepted in 22 countries (Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Spain, Italy, germany, Austria, Poland, Denmark, Switzerland, France, Malta, Albania, Serbia, Slovenia, Portugal, the USA, Argentina, Montenegro, anada, Lebanon, DR Congo and China). New members are always welcome, because Our Lady is amply underlining the need of prayer.

This prayer initiative has been launched and is led by Mons. Eduard Pericic, professor of Church History in Zadar, and regular member of the Pontifical Marian Academy in Rome. From the very beginning of the apparitions, he is observing the spiritual events of Medjugorje and writing about them.

On August 24, 2002, Jelena Vasilj got married to Massimiliano Valente in St James Church, Medjugorje.   It was indeed a very prayerful and joyful wedding!   Visionary, Marija Pavlovic-Lunetti, was Jelena's Maid of Honor. Rarely do we see such beautiful and striking newly weds!   A week before the wedding, they visited our home and shared at length about their values as a christian couple.  Let's remember that Jelena had been taught by Our Lady herself for many years, through inner locutions, under the wings of Fr. Tomislav Vlasic, and she was chosen by Our Lady to lead a prayer group until she started her studies in the US in 1991. I'll start reporting here some of Jelena's answers to my questions.

Fr. Ljubo, with this interview I’d like to sum up your experience at Medjugorje over these past seven years. Let’s start from the beginning. How did you feel when you were told you’d be coming here?

I was a young priest - ordained four years previously. The parish priest then was Fr. Pervan, and when I was told I’d be coming here as a spiritual assistant it frightened me a little. Being newly ordained it came as a challenge. I’d thus far come to Medjugorje as a pilgrim, and it was here that I decided to become a monk; after that I came here a few times also to help with the confessions. It is totally different to come here every now and again, and to live here. To live here is like an immersion; you live Mary’s presence in your heart.
