The statue of the Risen Jesus Christ
The statue of the Risen Jesus Christ, is 2 minutes’ walk from Gloria Apartments.
Just behind the church of St. Jacob, a bronze statue of Risen Jesus Christ was set up, and it is the work of Slovenian artist Andrej Ajdić.
The special thing about this statue is that the tears flow from the knees of the statue, that is, the liquid that in its composition is identical to human tears.
And this is one of the important places for Medjugorje and numerous believers in peace and prayer are waiting in order to touch the tears. Some make the sign of the cross on their foreheads using damp fingers, while the other collect tears on a tissue and carry them home.
A prayer room is also arranged around the statue for all those who can not go to Križevac.
