Medugorje literally translated means 'Between the Hills". The story behind these souvenir pendants is as follows:
"On the afternoon of June 24, 1981, two girls, Ivanka Ivankovic (15) and Marjana Dragicevic (16), from the Bijakovici section of Medjugorje were returning home from a walk. Looking towards the hill called Crnica, Ivanka saw a bright silhouette of a woman. She said to Mirjana, "It is the Gospa!" (Our Lady). Marijana would not look and they both ran off in fear."
There is an image of the woman on the front of this pendant and the word Medugorje on the back of a church. In excellent condition, this pendant measures 1" by 3/4".
