Medjugorje, Medjugorje also wrote, is a small town in the municipality of Čitluk, now part of the Herzegovina-Neretva Canton of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The village lies at an altitude of about 200 meters above sea level and is located at the base of two hills, Cross Mountain and Apparition Hill (the name Medjugorje means " between the mountains "). The climate is typically Mediterranean .

Its citizens are mainly ethnic Croats and the religion professed by the people is the Catholic Church. The parish of Medjugorje has jurisdiction for the villages of Bijakovići , Vionica , Miletina and Šurmanci . Its patron is St. James .

The Marian apparitions

This town has become famous throughout the world because , on June 24 , 1981, Vicka Ivankovic , Mirjana Dragicevic , Marija Pavlovic , Ivan Dragicevic , Ivanka Ivankovic and Jakov Colo. ( who were then between 10 and 16 years old, are now all adults , fathers and mothers family ) claim to receive visions of the Virgin Mary, which would be presented with the title of " Queen of Peace" ( Queen of Peace ) . For this reason, Medjugorje has become a very popular destination of many pilgrimages.

The current position of the Church on the apparitions is "non constat de supernaturalitate " (there is no evidence of the supernatural ) , as enshrined in the Declaration of Zadar ( 1990) , given that the event itself is not finished yet . But in Normae S.Congregationis pro doctrina fidei de way procedendi in iudicandis praesumptis apparitionibus ac revelationibus , the official document approved in 1978 by Pope Paul VI that contains the information that pastors must follow in issuing the judgment of truth about an alleged apparition are provided two formulas legal sanction status of the phenomenon in question: " constat de supernaturalitate " and " constat de non supernaturalitate" translated respectively as " turns out to be supernatural " and " turns out to be not supernatural ." However, in the case of the Marian apparitions of Medjugorje , in 1991 the Yugoslav Bishops' Conference reached a compromise formulation (the only case in the history of Marian apparitions ) adopting the formula "non constat de supernaturalitate " ( it does not appear to be supernatural ) , thus leaving the door open . They did not want that to exclude a priori that there are really Marian apparitions in Medjugorje ( as it would have been if you had used the official formula ) .

In March 2010 , the Holy See has formed a committee to investigate the facts . This committee is composed of bishops , theologians and other experts , under the leadership of Cardinal Camillo Ruini. In December 2012, after completion of the work, carried out in absolute secrecy , the same have been delivered to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith
