MEDJUGORJE Black silver beaded BRACELET

Tresor Bleu Exclusive

Item No. 815BMC9

Pilgrimage Bracelet handmade Medjugorje, Bosnia

This handwoven bracelet is black macrame featuring a petite cross with several silver beads. Bracelet fits up to 9.5" wrist, fully adjustable. This style of bracelet is a well-known memento of those who have personally visited the Apparition site. The small town of Medjugorje is the site of the 1981-1982 Marian Apparitions with six teens as the witnesses over a year-long period.  While these Apparitions are still being validated by the Vatican, Pope Francis encourages visiting this holy site and the nearby Saint James Church.  As with Lourdes, Liseux and Fatima, many miracles and conversions have been attributed to the pilgrims who have visited the holy apparition site at Medjugorje, which now attracts over 1 million visitors a year. It sits near the border of Bosnia and Croatia.  The site was condemned during the Bosnian War, but pilgrims still came to the site of the "Blue Cross" where they, for the most part, could not be found.
