M E D J U G O R J E (pronounced Med-you-gory-a.) This is in the village of Medjugorje only 30 kms. from Mostar, a place where it is reported that on the 24th of June 1981, the Virgin Mary first appeared to six children; Jakov Colo, Mirjana Dragicevic, Ivanka Ivankovic, Vicka Ivankovic, Marijia Pavlovic and Ivan Dragicevic. The Blessed Virgin still appears daily to four of the young people, Jajov, Vicka, Marija and Ivan and on special occasions to Mirjana and Ivanka. Each of the seers is to receive ten secrets. Two of the seers, Ivanka and Mirjana, have each received the tenth and final secret; the other young people have received nine. Pilgrims still flock to Medjugorje for the anniversary.

June 26, 2010: Optional Tour Available - DUBROVNIK. After a restful night and a hearty breakfast, we drive to Dubrovnik for a walking tour of “The Jewel of the Adriatic’ so called by Lord Byron. Although over 70% of the buildings were damaged in some way during the 1991 war, most of the damage has now been repaired and the city is back to its stunning best. Originally a Venetian port and one of the world’s major ports and trading centers up until the 17th century, Dubrovnik is classified in its entirety by UNESCO as a world heritage site and it’s easy to see why: Our guide will take us to see the 15th century Onofrios fountain, built to celebrate the completion of the city’s water system; the magnificent Rector’s Palace which dates from the 17th century and has been destroyed and rebuilt several times; the tiny Sigurata church that dates from the 11th century; St. Blaise’s church with the small silver statue of St. Blaise that survived the fire which destroyed the original church in 1706; and the stunningly pretty Sponza Palace whose delicate ‘lace’ stonework has survived multiple earthquakes. The afternoon is free to spend as we wish before our dinner and overnight.
