As pilgrims gather at Caritas, Alabama, for the Medjugorje Re-Consecration of the United States, we personally reflect today on repentance.
For those wishing to join us from their homes:
July 1 – Day of Repentance
A day of reflection to lead us towards repentance, humiliation and forgiveness. We will ask Our Lady for a profound spirit of repentance, humility, forgiveness and revival to enter our hearts.
On this first day of our Five Days of Prayer, it is important to come to an understanding of our own sinfulness before God. This day is to be spent in reflection, to have a meeting of hearts, your heart, with the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, so to acknowledge any unconfessed sins that would hamper Our Lady in bestowing upon you the spiritual gifts that She has been given by God to bestow upon us during these days of prayer. A Friend of Medjugorje will speak on what Our Lady of Medjugorje has revealed in Her messages concerning the need for this personal repentance. How you live this day will affect the rest of your pilgrimage. Use this day to seriously reflect on where you stand with God—not in comparison to the life your neighbor is living, but in comparison to God’s holiness.
