The Woman at Meðugorje

Honorable Mention

This laying of rocks is found at the top of a small mountain in southern Bosnia where thousands of Catholics pilgrims come each year. At the top of the mountain countless crosses have been created by the individual laying of stones, but this one is not only a cross, but a sign of women, celebrating the achievement of Meðugorje as a place for women, created by women. As sheep graze in the grass, pilgrims silently reflect on the miraculous events and incredible women of Meðugorje.
