Excerpt from a marvelous article by Craig Turner titled “The Status of Medjugorje”. Mystic Post will publish the article in its entirety soon.
Sr. Briege McKenna, the world-famous healing nun of the Sisters of St. Clare, was a witness to prophecies about Medjugorje two months prior to the reported apparitions.
She saw a vision of the twin spires of St. James Church, though she had never seen the church itself, and told Fr. Tomislav, one of the Medjugorje priests, that “great streams of living water” will soon usher forth from his church.
Sr. Briege’s bestseller, Miracles Do Happen, would be issued containing a special section about Medjugorje. In the book she unabashedly states that while praying the Rosary one morning in Ireland she heard the voice of the Blessed Mother: “You must go to Medjugorje and there I will give you a message for my priests.”
She obtained permission from her mother superior and went to Medjugorje on the Feast of Corpus Christi. She testified in her book that while in Medjugorje “I witnessed a tremendous sense of Mary’s presence and her purity in the young people, particularly in those who belong to the prayer group Our Lady told the visionaries to organize.”
