MICHIGAN CITY — Nestled between the Adriatic Sea and Dinaric Alps, about 5,000 miles from Michigan City, lies the village of Medjugorje, in Bosnia and Herzegovina. If on your drive from Dubrovnik, Croatia, you see a sign welcoming you to Veliki Ogradenik, you’ve gone a bridge too far.

While Medjugorje may sound like a resort town, devout Catholics are mindful of its spiritual significance. It’s the site where six children claim to have witnessed visions of the Virgin Mary back in the early 1980s on land that would eventually be called Apparition Hill.
