Overview

The Message comes his newest book, The Final Harvest. Wayne Weible, who began his career as a skeptical journalist, has introduced an entire generation to Medjugorje. In this new volume, he weighs the historical significance and religious impact of what is perhaps the greatest supernatural event of modern times.

For more than eighteen years, the Virgin Mary has allegedly been appearing daily in the remote mountain village of Medjugorje in Southern Bosnia. Her messages, responsible for the conversion and strengthened faith of untold millions, are focused on one objective: to bring the world back to God through his Son, Jesus Christ.

Wayne Weible details how these messages of reconciliation and forgiveness have borne fruit in this troubled Balkan country and throughout the entire world - and provides an intriguing sense of what is still to come.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In June 1981, in the quiet village of Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Blessed Virgin Mary reportedly appeared to six young people and delivered a plea to be reconciled to God. Over the past 18 years, millions of lives have been changed as a result of witnessing this continuing apparition. When Weible (Medjugorje: The Message) began his journalistic coverage of the phenomenon, he was a skeptical unbeliever; his professed encounter with the Mother of God at Medjugorje led to his eventual conversion to Christianity and his commitment to report on the power of these apparitions. Here, Weible records the conversations that various witnesses allegedly have had with the Blessed Virgin Mother. The author weaves into these messages details about the background of the particular apparition. Weible reports, for example, that in 1985 the Virgin is said to have appeared to a woman named Marija and to have commented on the growing number of books and articles concerning her appearances: "See, now I am there in each family, in each home! I am everywhere because I love. Do the same. The world lives from love." The Virgin's message over the years has not changed; she continues to urge people to be reconciled to God so that they can be reconciled to one another. Weible believes that the consistency of her message and the responses to her words point to this reconciliation as the "final harvest of souls," that when these apparitions are concluded, the world will "undergo a spiritual cleansing that will mark the beginning of an unprecedented era of peace through a full return to God." Weible's book offers an update on reports of the Blessed Virgin's continued appearances in the midst of a war-ravaged country pleading for peace and reconciliation.

Library Journal
From 1981 to the present, apparitions have appeared in the rural village of Medjugorje in Bosnia-Herzegovina. These apparitions have had a great effect on the people of the region and on the estimated 30 million pilgrims who have visited from every part of the world. Journalist Weible's objective is to present the historical significance and the religious impact of the apparitions, using as his main format a majority of the messages just as they were given to the visionaries. Interspersed among them are factual details, stories, and commentary gleaned from Weible's 14 years of personal investigation, during which he moved from questioning skeptic to believer. The book also includes the present status of the visionaries and many of the visiting pilgrims, focusing on the spiritual lives of each. The easy writing style and informative approach make this a book bound to stay with the reader. Recommended for all libraries, especially those current in contemporary prophecy and paranormal experiences.--Leroy Hommerding, Citrus Cty. Lib.

Chapter One


The Message


    The young Franciscan priest from Bosnia-Hercegovina stared blankly out the window as the plane approached the airport. It was the first week of May 1981, and the weather was nearly perfect. Normally, this would be a time of joy and anticipation as he prepared to attend an important international leader's conference of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal in Rome, Italy. At the moment, he only hoped the conference would rekindle the Holy Spirit flame within him that had strongly marked his brief priesthood.

    The apathy of the people in his parish and surrounding parishes had brought Father Tomislav Vlasic to this discouraging point. He had come to his assignment at Saint Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Capljina, filled with a fervor expressed well through a strong gift of preaching and a magnetic personality. As a result, the young priest had been invited to nearby villages to preach the message of the Gospels. But instead of spiritual conversion, he was met with indifference. Many young people did not attend Mass; work on Sundays was the norm. Families praying the rosary together seemed to be a thing of the past.

    Tomislav came to the conference with one thought in mind: to seek help through the wisdom of two well-known members of the Charismatic Movement, Sister Briege McKenna and Father Emiliano Tardif. Both would be speakers at the conference. He wanted them to pray over him in hopes of discerning the answer to restoring his spiritual buoyancy and overcoming the resistance of the people at home.

   Father Tomislav's prayers were answered, but in a way that far exceeded his expectations. Sister Briege McKenna, an Irish nun living in the United States, had a powerful healing ministry and a strong gift of prophecy. As she prayed over Father Tomislav, she began describing a vivid prophetic vision, telling him that she "saw him in a twin-towered church sitting in a chair and surrounded by a great crowd." There were streams of water flowing from beneath the chair out onto the people, she related, "streams of powerful healing water...."

    Tomislav was deeply touched by the vision, but also confused. The only church he knew with twin towers was twelve miles away in the parish of Medjugorje. But he was happy, having received far more than he had anticipated through the encounter with Sister Briege. Surely, this was a sign that the people were finally going to respond to his ministry. What occurred next raised his spirits well above mere happiness, even though the young priest was not quite certain what it meant.

    Also gifted with the charisma of a healing ministry, Father Emiliano Tardif, a French-Canadian presently stationed in Colombia, South America, came to Tomislav the following day. He also had prayed over him. Taking him aside and embracing him, he said, "My dear young friend, I have a wonderful message for you from Jesus. He says, `Don't worry, I am sending you my mother!'"


And a great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun,
with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars....
—REVELATION 12:1.
