PETER BATTY has sent me a copy of his newly-published 15 page pamphlet, Our Lady Queen of Peace; Truth and Life at Medjugorje. It contains seven photographs, including a special panoramic view of the plain of Medjugorje.
The text is the Message of Medjugorje as told by Fr Tomislav Vlasic, OFM on 15 August 1983, the spiritual director of the six children to whom it is claimed Our Lady Queen of Peace has appeared consistently over the past 33 months.
Last August readers of the Catholic Herald, Dr and Mrs Julian Smyth, and Mr and Mrs John Eldon, went to Medjugorje on pilgrimage, and John Eldon recorded an interview with Fr Tomislav, which was translated
In February of this year a group of pilgrims from Scotland, led by Calum MacFarlane-Barrow, had this translation checked for accuracy by one of the Franciscan nuns who speaks excellent English, and Fr Tomislav gave permission to publish the narrative.
The pamphlet, 20p, is obtainable from Peter Batty; 5, Magdalen Road, St LeonSrdson-Sea, East Sussex TN37 6EG. Send stamped addressed envelope (9" x 41")
Readers will recall that articles on Our Lady of Medjugorje have appeared in the Herald, by Julian Smyth, and by Calum MacFarlane-Barrow, with the basic message of Our Lady, of Prayer, Penance and Fasting.
