If the Soul is Tired, the Body Will Be Too

If the Soul is Tired, the Body Will Be Too

Our Lady knows what the world puts before us, and gives us direction…

January 16, 2014 A.D.

After over 32 years, Our Lady of Medjugorje continues to speak to the world in a direct way, a way not seen before in the history of the world. Her wisdom understands what today’s world puts before us, and She gives us direction to combat it. Our Lady said on May 30, 1985:

“…Let prayer, dear children, be your everyday food in a special way when your work in the fields is so wearing you out that you cannot pray with the heart. Pray, and then you shall overcome even every weariness. Prayer will be your joy and your rest…”

When many are tired, they think of vacation, of their body rest, but often forget their soul, that noble part which animates the body. If the soul is tired, the body will be tired too. A Friend of Medjugorje founded BVM Caritas Medjugorje pilgrimages as centered and foundationed on this understanding, that the soul comes first. We have often written in our pilgrimage publications, that if one is interested in a vacation, then BVM Caritas is not the group to go to Medjugorje with. Our Medjugorje pilgrims so often tell us that they are pleased that it is a true pilgrimage, in that the focus of our pilgrimages is on Our Lady’s apparitions, Her messages, and the importance of Apparition time.

“I was in Medjugorje in 1998 with another tour group and that experience was nothing like what I experienced with Caritas. This was a true pilgrimage, one that I will treasure for the rest of my life. I thank God and especially Our Blessed Mother for leading my family and me to Caritas. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

“It is with a most grateful heart that I write to you and thank you for all that you do to help prepare our hearts for a close and holy experience with Our Lady during our pilgrimage. Going to Medjugorje with Caritas was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. You have a way of helping us cultivate our souls to be in contact with heaven, the Queen of Peace. All the praying, walking the paths, climbing Apparition Hill, and Cross Mountain, going to Mass and confession, singing, gathering for talks, etc., have helped me experience a wonderful pilgrimage that has changed my life.”

“My pilgrimage to Medjugorje through Caritas was fulfilling and inspiring, it transformed my life into a life of prayer. The holiness of the Village of Medjugorje will make you want to continue to be glued to daily prayer, prayer and more prayer. I already miss Medjugorje and hope by God’s grace through Our Lady, I can bring the rest of my family to experience the miracles, healing and conversion that has taken place every day for 32 plus years in the Village.”

Sunset in Medjugorje

One of the most moving sights in Medjugorje are the sunsets seen from Apparition Mountain. In this picture above, taken from Apparition Mountain, we can see the ways that God has graced this place even physically, with a beauty people search the world over to find. This is what awaits those who pilgrimage to this Holy Site, where the Queen of Peace comes to spread the perfume of Her Love.

Our founder, A Friend of Medjugorje, built BVM Caritas Medjugorje Pilgrimages five years after the apparitions of Medjugorje began. Having a deep understanding of the messages, he has written more on Medjugorje than anyone in the world. He foundationed, according to what our pilgrims tell us, the best spiritual format to go to Medjugorje, and which is the way it continues to this very day. Our founder threaded into these trips a completeness, which has led, by God’s grace, to deep conversions for souls, going on now 28 years!
