Life was simple in Medjugorje…
People lived like they had for hundreds of years—growing crops, raising livestock, and spending time with family and friends. Heaven, though, had other plans, and the village changed forever after a group of children saw an extraordinary sight on a nearby hillside one summer afternoon.
Throughout history, people in different parts of the world have been visited by Mary, the mother of Jesus. Still, no one expected her to visit Medjugorje, least of all the six children who would come to be known as “the visionaries.” As they would soon find out, her heavenly visits would transform their sleepy hamlet into a destination of hope and peace for people from every part of the world.
Mary’s messages begin with the words “Dear Children,” and she wishes for every person in the world to see her as a mother. This is the true story of Medjugorje and the Queen of Peace.

Život u Međugorju je bio jednostavan...
Ljudi su živjeli kao i tijekom proteklih stotine godina – uzgajali su usjeve, skrbili o stoci i provodili vrijeme s obitelji i prijateljima. Nebo je, međutim, imalo drugačije planove i selo se zauvijek promijenilo nakon što je skupina djece vidjela izvanredan prizor na obližnjem brdu jednoga ljetnog popodneva.
Tijekom povijesti ljude je u različitim dijelovima svijeta pohodila Marija, Isusova majka. Ipak, nitko nije očekivao da bi ona mogla pohoditi Međugorje, a najmanje od svih to je očekivalo šestero djece koja će postati poznata kao "vidioci". Iako to nisu mogli ni zamisliti, njezin nebeski pohod će preobraziti njihov uspavani zaselak u odredište nade i mira za ljude sa svih strana svijeta.
Marijine poruke počinju riječima "Draga djeco", a ona želi da je svaka osoba na svijetu vidi kao majku. Ovo je istinita priča o Međugorju i Kraljici Mira.
