In the afternoon, we head to the Blue Cross, this is where Our Lady appeared to the visionaries when they were hiding from the communist police in the first days of the apparitions. A blue cross was erected to mark the location of the apparitions, which led to the name of the place, “Blue Cross” followed by a visit to the new Spring of Divine Mercy Shrine Medjugorje.
