By Darko Pavicic
Medjugorje: The First Seven Days by journalist Darko Pavičić is a detailed and impartial journalistic-investigative reconstruction through previously unpublished materials and witnesses interviews sheds light on the occurrences of the first days of Medjugorje apparitions from June 24th to July 3rd, 1981, whose authenticity the Vatican considers positive.
Medjugorje, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, is the only place in the world where the Virgin Mary appears every day. These apparitions have continued for over four decades and today Medjugorje is governed by the Vatican through a special papal envoy.
Medjugorje: The First Seven Days was inspired by the unofficial findings of the International Commission of Inquiry of the Holy See for Medjugorje, which Pope Benedict XVI entrusted to Cardinal Camillo Ruini and which gave a positive opinion on the authenticity of these “first seven days”, i.e. the ten days of apparitions from June 24th to July 3rd, 1981.
The book is an ideal introduction to the phenomenon for skeptics and those who encounter the Medjugorje phenomenon for the first time, while it also contains a handful of previously unpublished details which are unknown even to devotees of Medjugorje.
