From the First Phone Call…

From the First Phone Call…

A pilgrim shares their experience of Medjugorje…


June 18, 2015 A.D.


“…My pilgrimage was absolutely OUTSTANDING! Everything was very organized and flowed smoothly – from my first phone call to Caritas to my return home. I cannot say enough to describe my experience in Medjugorje. There are simply not enough adjectives in our language to do that!” M.S., Carthage, Missouri, USA


It is a beautiful thing to see a soul be brought closer to God in Medjugorje. But, Medjugorje is not just for those who are in great need of conversion, rather, each of us is in need of conversion. Our pilgrim continues:  

“…[The BVM Caritas] guide was fantastic – responsible for leading me to experience such a time of peace, prayer, and closeness to the Blessed Virgin Mary and Her Son. Again, I am at a loss for words…”

Recently some people have called us concerned about purported rumors regarding remarks from Pope Francis, wondering if they can still go to Medjugorje. A Friend of Medjugorje has answered these questions extensively in the recent writing, We Must Go to A Higher Truth, available below. We answer emphatically that not only can one go to Medjugorje, but that one must go to Medjugorje. Our pilgrim said:

“…Now, I feel I have a ‘mission’ to share this with others – family, friends, church members, etc…”

Medjugorje is the place to understand your mission, strengthen your commision and align your vision to that of God’s plan for the world today.
