This is purpose of Our Lady’s coming, because in the hearts of men, love is disappearing, and the way of salvation is not being found. This is true for many, and now is the time to make a break.
BVM Caritas Medjugorje Pilgrims, November 2017
BVM Caritas pilgrims disconnect from the world and connect to God. It sometimes takes a physical leaving of the daily grind of life, and coming to a place like Medjugorje to make a break from the world.
How much does simply living the modern life disconnect one from God? In the absorbing of everything that surrounds one’s heart, is there a place for God, for peace? A Friend of Medjugorje writes:
“…Do not be too absorbed in the news events of the day; newspapers, television, talk radio, the Internet, news magazines… how connected are you to these things that keep you connected with the material world? Through a loss of peace that comes from being inundated with the darkness of the world, a gulf is being created between you and your Creator. Your heads become filled with facts and you can no longer pray…”1
Has a gulf been created between you and God? Make a break. This year, is the year to go to Medjugorje. Disconnect from your daily life, cell phone, internet, news, etc. and connect to God. Leave the facts that fill your head daily, and be immersed in the truth of God, Who is sending Our Lady to the world. BVM Caritas Medjugorje pilgrimages has been structured for over 30 years just for this. Begin planning your pilgrimage now.
