Medjugorje is currently one of the major centres of pilgrimage anywhere in the world. Since 24th, June 1981, when it was first claimed that Our Lady, the Blessed Virgin Mary, was appearing to six young people, over 40 million pilgrims have made their way to this mountain village in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Many claim it a major force in revitalizing the Catholic faith in many areas throughout the world. There has been a steady stream of reports of multitudes of life-changing conversions and returning to the sacraments and the practice of the faith. So powerful and demonstrable is the influence of the Sacrament of Reconciliation there, that Medjugorje is often referred to in the Church as, The Confessional of the World. There are also claims of very spectacular medical healings.MEDJUGORJE: The First Days presents a very detailed chronological account of the Medjugorje phenomenon as it unfolded over the crucial first few days. Meticulous research has resulted in a graphic and absorbing account of the beginning of the claimed apparitions of Our Lady in Medjugorje.MEDJUGORJE: The First Days contains, for the first time in any language, a full, un-redacted transcript of twenty-two tape-recorded interviews/on-the-spot commentaries with the visionaries. These interviews/commentaries were recorded during the first week of the apparitions and the transcripts provide quite compelling evidence which strongly points to the authenticity of the Medjugorje phenomenon. This book is lavishly illustrated with many never before published photos.Fr James Mulligan is a Roman Catholic priest serving in the Archdiocese of Westminster in London and is the author of MEDJUGORJE: What's Happening? published by Paraclete Press.
