"This will be a place of graces, a place of healing from diseases and wounds of the soul. Whoever takes refuge with faith in my Heart and in the Heart of my Son at this place will be healed and share in the peace that only heaven can give."
Mary’s message on Kurešček, 10 February 1990
Our ancestors had been flocking to Mary on Kurešček for centuries – allegedly the church already existed in the
15th century.. Because it became the goal of an increasing number of pilgrims, it was enlarged at the beginning of the
18th century. It became a popular place of pilgrimage and was visited by thousands of people before the Second World War.
But after the war the church started to fall apart and the only thing that remained of the shrine were ruins. But Mary has never left the place where she has been granting peace for centuries.
In December 1989, in Medžugorje, a father and back then already permanent deacon France Špelič heard Mary’s call: “Renew prayer in a forgotten and abandoned place!” On 10 February 1990, he ascended Kurešček with two priests and some laymen.
During the Holy Mass, which was offered on the ruins in the outer chapel, he received his first vision of the Queen of Peace in this place. Amongst other things, Mary said: “This will be a place of graces, a place of healing from diseases and wounds of the soul. Whoever takes refuge with faith in my Heart and in the Heart of my Son at this place will be healed and share in the peace that only heaven can give.”
A renovation of the church began, and it was completed in August 1992. The forgotten and abandoned place once again became a place of prayer and a shrine where Mary fulfils her promise:
“In this place I will grant peace.”
