Announcing A Friend of Medjugorje… in France
Having just completed the Latin American pilgrimage with Medjugorje visionary Marija, A Friend of Medjugorje continues to bring the messages of Our Lady to nations around the world and will be in France Thursday, November 17, through Saturday November 19.
France is a country dear to the heart of Caritas’ founder, A Friend of Medjugorje. So much significant history has taken place within its borders, so many saints buried in her soil, the eldest daughter of the Catholic Church—and without a doubt, France is close to the Heart of Our Lady with Her multiple visitations over the centuries including Paris, where the Miraculous Medal was given to St. Catherine Laboure, and Lourdes to St. Bernadette.
A Friend of Medjugorje was once asked amongst a crowd of pilgrims what his favorite book was, the book that had the greatest impact on his life outside of the Bible, Our Lady’s messages, on the works of Maria Valtorta, the Poem of the Man-God, of which Our Lady strongly recommended its reading in Her apparitions in Medjugorje. Without hesitation he said Joan of Arc by Mark Twain. He said this book opened his eyes to what Our Lady was doing in Medjugorje. Joan of Arc was prefigurement of Our Lady. Joan of Arc was a young girl who was raised up by God to save France at a point when France was down to just a few square blocks of land and was on the very verge of extinction. In this, our time, when the world has so degraded that it too is on the verge of extinction, God has sent the Virgin Mary to rescue the world from destruction. So much was A Friend of Medjugorje impacted by Joan of Arc’s resemblance to Our Lady that he made her one of his patron saints.
Over the years, Caritas’ founder has had several opportunities to visit France and speak on behalf of Our Lady of Medjugorje and Her messages. Those who have attended his talks have been touched by his love for France, his insights into France’s present condition and how he combines Our Lady’s words from Medjugorje with the spiritual richness of France’s history to shine forth hope into her future.
There will be three pubic talks and additional private meetings. We know of people traveling from other countries to attend these talks. All are welcome. Below is the schedule and contact information for his up and coming visit:
