Our Lady’s coming, is the reason the world has received from God, so much undeserved grace. Are we taking advntage, while we can, of this abundant grace?
A pilgrim praying on Apparition Mountain, September 27, 2018. It was on this mountain in Medjugorje that Our Lady first appeared, beckoning the visionaries to come towards Her. They in turn, out of fear, ran away. How often one mistakes the works of God for something fearful? Yet, God only desires our good.
The Medjugorje apparitions are a great grace from God. Not answering Our Lady’s call, or not following Her beckoning, whether out of fear, mistrust, traditionalism, liberalism, or any other cause, will bring great sorrow when it is realized how much was lost in the time that Our Lady was with us. Medjugorje is a call for everyone, and one in which if answered, will bring “abundance” of gifts. One recent Caritas pilgrim who answered the call of Our Lady wrote to us:

“Caritas made my pilgrimage to Medjugorje truly magnificent. They keep the focus on Our Lady and make the trip one of prayer and peace… Caritas understands Our Lady’s call like no other group and provides materials, written words and steps to help one respond to Her call. I am not the same person I was before my trip. The reason it was so fruitful and life-changing was thanks to Caritas. I would not be as enlightened or on fire as I am now without them. Caritas is the beacon of light that makes Medjugorje known to the world. Caritas is a pivotal part of Our Lady’s plan for the conversion of the world.”
