This book concentrates on the texts of the messages from Our Lady, which the parish has been receiving regularly from the Mother of God through the visionary Marija Pavlovic from March 1, 1984 to the present day.
The investigation consists of four parts. The first contains a short history of the events in Medjugorje, and the position of Church authorities. The second is a general analysis of the language of the messages. The third deals with the most important theological themes and concepts; an attempt is made to evolve a theology of the messages. In the fourth part, the political dimension of the message of peace is discussed.
The author, Marija Stelzer Dugandzic is a graduate from the renowned Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome where she received her licentiate from the Faculty of Theology at the University of Vienna. She is personal friends of the visionaries. She is the same age as the visionaries, grew up with them in Medjugorje, follows the same customs, speaks the same mother tongue, and is familiar with all the idioms and nuances of speech in Croatian - the language in which all the messages have been communicated.
