The 25th Anniversary of the Five Days of Prayer for the Reconciling of Ourselves, our Familes and Nation Back to God, came to a close yesterday, December 12, 2017, but the grace of these five days will continue throughout all of Christmas and beyond. This event, is the most well-known Medjugorje event in the U.S., taking place annually December 8-12, at Caritas of Birmingham. We share with you a few scenes from the past two days here at Caritas.
The evening of December 11, 2017, Christmas in the Field at Caritas pictured above. This is an event which many have said is their true experience of Christmas.
Rosary Time on December 12, 2017 – The Cross on the mountain at Caritas overlooks the Field of Apparitions, with the Flag in the foreground. A Friend of Medjugorje reminded everyone that patriotism is a virtue, especially when it helps to bring about conversion for a nation.
The Patriotic Rosary being prayed at the daily Rosary on December 12, 2017 – The Patriotic Rosary continues to be the most-popular prayer offered for our Nation. We continue to pray in these days for our Nation, that the grace of Our Lady’s apparitions here in the Bedroom and Field, will bring a continual blessing of conversion for our Nation. A Friend of Medjugorje has continued to state that though God uses men for His purpose, ultimately the revival of a nation comes from God, but, it requires an acknowlegement of sin, true repentace, and the asking for forgiveness. Then God, “…will hear from Heaven. I will forgive ther sin, and heal their land…” Chronicles 7:14
