In 2011, an unlikely group of non-religious abortionist doctors found themselves visiting the most active Catholic apparition site in the world, Medjugorje. One of the doctors, a gynecologist in her sixties, had personally performed 1000s of abortions. But her life suddenly changed after having a supernatural vision on Apparition Hill!
The group was led by Valentina, a young woman from Ukraine. She had had her own conversion experience while visiting Medjugorje for the first time in 2007, and since then had been leading pilgrimages there. Inspired by Bl. Mother Teresa, Valentina had also dedicated herself to serving the sick poor.
Her work got her connected with her local medical community, which led to her inviting the group of doctors to Medjugorje. (You can learn more about Valentina’s incredible story on Mystic Post.)
An important part of their time in Medjugorje was climbing to the top of Apparition Hill, one of the first places Mary is said to have appeared to the child visionaries in 1981. Today, there is a large cross on the spot, along with a statue of Mary.
That’s when something incredible happened.
“I had scarcely put my foot down on the hill,” the abortionist later explained, according to Mystic Post, “when everything changed before my eyes.
“The rocks disappeared. The hill was suddenly covered with the bones and skulls of all the babies I had aborted over forty years.
“Look at these hands!” she cried out, stretching out her hands before the group. “Here are the hands which killed an entire city!”
With that, the doctor was done with abortions. Many of the other doctors in her group also had conversion experiences. In all, Valentina has taken somewhere around 400 abortion doctors to Medjugorje in the last few years.
Whatever you make of the alleged visionaries, stories of conversion are always something to celebrate!
