Medjugorje: The Final ProphecyMedjugorje, a town located in the Herzegovina region of Bosnia and Herzegovina, has become a popular pilgrimage site of Roman Catholics because in 1981 six local children reported they had seen visions of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  People from around the world visit the beautiful St. James church and nearby statue of the Blessed Virgin and also visit Apparition Hill and Cross Mountain.
Medjugorje: The Final Prophecy, a work of historical fiction by local author Peter Danish, tells the story of a down-on-his-luck American filmmaker who is visiting this holy shrine, in war-torn Bosnia, where it’s said that little children are seeing visions of the Virgin Mary.  After miraculous cures begin taking place, pilgrims from all over the world come to the little country town seeking miracles of their own.  The American, along with five strangers of different faiths and ethnicity are thrown together by a strange twist of fate.  A war and a thousand years of hatred divide them.  But a fortune lies ahead for them if they can forget the past, put aside their differences and work together for one night.  A mysterious young girl holds the key to unlock a miraculous mystery, and all of their earthly dreams may come true if they can make it happen – and not kill each other in the process.
Join Nyack’s Peter Danish at the Nyack Library on Thursday, June 23 at 7p as he discusses his book.  Registration is required.
