Medjugorje October 9, 2013 A.D.
Sr. Briege Mckenna, an Irish sister with a special healing ministry to priests, was in Medjugorje recently. She was present at an apparition of Medjugorje visionary Marija and after the apparition Marija, with much joy, introduced Sr. Briege and asked her to pray over the crowded room of pilgrims. Sr. Briege became associated with Medjugorje in the very early days of the apparitions, even before the apparitions began. In May 1981, just one month before the apparitions began in Medjugorje, Sr. Briege was in Rome taking part in a special worldwide gathering of members of the Charismatic Renewal who were invited to come to St. Peter’s by Pope John Paul II for Pentecost. Sr. Briege has relayed the story that during these days of prayer she met a group of priests from the Mostar diocese in Yugoslavia. One of the priests asked Sr. Briege to pray with him for the youth of his region who were succumbing to the propaganda of the communists and losing the faith. Sr. Briege explained what happened during that period of prayer:
