From La Luce di Maria:
Who was Matè Sego?
A very humble man who had prophesied about the apparitions that would take place in Medjugorje.
Matè Sego was a peasant, born in 1901, in the village of Bijakovici, in Bosnia-Herzegovina, near Medjugorje. He had never had the opportunity to go to school and lived by cultivating his land. He did not own a house with water and electricity; he slept in the street, near his camp. The life of this gentle and respected man, known by everyone in the village, is, today, forever linked to the apparitions of the Madonna, in that place. Long before the visionaries began to talk to the Queen of Peace, Matè Sego had in fact begun to describe unexpected events, unthinkable for the inhabitants of those villages. He, who lived just where, now, the Marian apparitions take place, said, in fact: “One day, there will be a large staircase behind my house, with as many steps as there are days of the year. Medjugorje will be very important, people will come here from all corners of the world.”
[So it is, that millions each year visit this once-remote village — and climb on steps leading behind his home to paths for Mount Krizevac or Apparition Hill. The Vatican recently okayed official parish pilgrimages here.
As Sister Emmanuel, a religious at Medjugorje, quoted Matè as saying (in The Hidden Child of Medjugorje): “There will be many roads, many buildings, much bigger than our little houses we have now. Some buildings will be immense.”
At that point in the story Matè Sego was saddened and said “Our people will sell their land to foreigners who will build on it. On my mountain there will be so many people that you will not be able to sleep at night [see the Mystic Post].”+
At that point, the friends of Matè laughed and asked if he had drunk too much grappa.+
But Matè continued: “Do not lose your traditions pray to God for all and for yourselves. There will be a spring here, a spring that will give a lot of water, so much water that there will be a lake here and ours will have boats and will moor them to a large rock.” A mysterious prophecy — this one yet unfulfilled — indeed!]
