Medjugorje – “between two mountains”

In this passage from Zechariah, I am reminded of the pilgrims who come from the four corners of the world to Medjugorje, returning home with the Spirit of Yaweh in their hearts.

Medjugorje – translated as “place between two mountains”.

And the mountains of bronze? What else but a reminder of the bronze stations erected on the Hill of Apparitions and Mt Krizevac, where pilgrims stand with an open heart before the Lord of the whole world! (see photo above)

The chariots and their horses of different colours: simply the many nationalties riding out with the message of Medjugorje, proclaming the Gospel with their lives.

• I raised my eyes and this is what I saw: four chariots coming out between the two mountains, and the mountains were mountains of bronze, the first chariot had red horses, the second chariot had black horses, the third chariot had white horses and the fourth chariot had (vigorous) piebald horses.

I asked the angel who was talking to me, I said, “What is the meaning of these my lord?” The angel answered, “These are going out to the four winds of heaven after standing before the Lord of the whole world. The red horses are going out to the country of the East; the black horses are going out to the country of the North; the white are going out to the country of the West and the piebald are going to the country of the South.”

They came out vigorously, eager to patrol the world. He said to them, “Go and patrol the world.” And they patrolled the world.

He called me and said to me, “See, those going northward will make the spirit of Yaweh descend on the country of the North. And those who are far away will come and rebuild the sanctuary of Yaweh. (And you will learn that Yaweh Saboath has sent me to you.) (This will happen of you listen carefully to the voice of Yaweh your God.)”
• Zechariah (prophet of messianic salvation) 6 : 1-13
