Prayer on back: Prayer to the Mother of Goodness, Love and Mercy Queen of Peace
O Mother mine, Mother of goodness, love, and mercy, I love you infinitely and I offer myself to you. By means of your goodness, your love, and your grace, pray for me. I desire to be yours. I love you infinitely and desire you to protect me. From the depth of my heart, I pray you, Mother of goodness, give me your goodness. Let me gain Heaven by means of it. I pray you, by your infinite love, to give me the grace, so that I may love every man, as you have loved Jesus Christ. I pray you to give me the grace to love your will. I offer myself to you completely and desire that you follow my every step. You are full of grace and I desire that I will never forget this. And if, by change, I should lose grace I pray you to restore it to me once more. Amen

Story & Symbolism:
Our Lady of Medjugorje also called Queen of Peace and Mother of the Redeemer, is the title given to the Blessed Virgin Mary by those who believe that she appeared in 1981 to six Herzegovinian teenagers in Medjugorje, Bosnia, and Herzegovina. Local Diocese as well as the Catholic Church have not recognized the apparitions as either supernatural or authentic.
There have also been continued reports of seeing the apparition and receiving messages from it during the years since. The seers often refer to the apparition as the "Gospa", which is a Croatian archaism for a lady. On May 13, 2017, a papal response came when Pope Francis declared that the original visions reported by the teenagers are worth studying in more depth, while the subsequently continued visions over the years are, in his view, of dubious value. He went on to say that there are people who go there, convert, find God, and their lives change. He said that this is a spiritual and pastoral fact that cannot be denied. As a pastoral initiative after considering the considerable number of people who go to Medjugorje and the abundant fruits of grace that have sprung from it, the ban on officially organized pilgrimages was lifted by the Vatican in May 2019. However, this was not to be interpreted as authentication of known events, which still require examination by the Church. This was made official with the celebration of a youth festival among pilgrims and Catholic clergy in Medjugorie for five days in August 2019.
"Considering - continued Gisotti - this authorization is part of the particular pastoral attention that the Holy Father intended to give to that reality, aimed at encouraging and promoting the fruits of good".
