Media in Bosnia and Herzegovina say that thousands of people have gathered in front of the house visionary Vicka Ivankovic-Mijatovic, who was one of six Herzegovinian Croat children who famously reported seeing an apparition of the Virgin Mary in Medjugorje in 1981, after news spread that a 40-year-old statue of the Virgin Mary in her house started to shine.
Vicka’s reported sighting in the early 1980’s has turned Medjugorje into a religious pilgrim mecca, and now hercegovina.info report that another ‘miracle’ may have occurred.
“The statue of Our Lady, which is 40 years old, began to shine in the old family house of visionary Vicka. The Statue is lit up, it has lit up the whole room. It is impossible to photograph though, because when you take a picture you can not see anything. Several professional photographers using the best cameras could not capture the light. The picture shows only the statue. In just a few minutes thousands of people heard the news and that the 40-year-old statue began to shine,” Mateo Ivankovic told Hercegovina.info.
