Coming to Medjugorje Stops Terrorist Attack – Revealed 4 Years Later
July 8, 2011 A.D.
Four years ago, June 30, 2007 three men, crashed their Jeep Cherokee SUV in the Glasgow, Scotland airport setting their vehicle and themselves on fire in an attempted terrorist attack. Officials said that the attack was part of larger coordinated terrorist attack that included other areas in London, England. That was the story we knew 4 years ago. Yesterday in Medjugorje we heard the “rest of the story.”
Fr. Dominic Towney from Scotland told the Caritas Community in Medjugorje yesterday, “It was a remarkable thing what happened. It was people from our group going to Medjugorje that was in a taxi in front of the terrorist.”
Fr. Dominic explained to a Caritas Community member, “The taxi provided a distraction to the terrorist,” which he explained made it so that they could not drive their jeep directly in to the airport but instead crashed into a security screen. According to news sources reporting at the time, eyewitnesses said the terrorist’s jeep was “tailgating a taxi” on it’s way into the airport terminal.1
According to Fr. Kevin Devine, an American priest in Medjugorje, “Coming here to Medjugorje has provided protection against a terrorist attack… It’s interesting that Our Lady of Medjugorje is responsible for stopping a terrorist attack,” mentioning the incident of 4 years ago from the altar at St. James Church in Medjugorje yesterday.
Fr. Dominic told the Caritas Community about the event 4 years ago, that, “none of us made it on our pilgrimage here (to Medjugorje) because the airports were closed.”But added with a smile, “We’re here now though.”
According to Fr. Dominic Towney, other members of his Medjugorje pilgrimage group were inside the airport when the attack took place in June 2007.
Though now we hear the “rest of the story” 4 years later, this story gives us remarkable insight into the power of Our Lady, as She comes to us today in Medjugorje as the Queen of Peace.
One should never be afraid of coming to Medjugorje. As illustrated in the story above, Our Lady can protect us, and others when we decide to visit Her Holy Village. Our Lady of Medjugorje said on February 12, 1990:
