“…Our Lady said to seek the intercession of all the saints. We’ve got a great wealth. We are seeking help here on earth, we go to doctors, etc. They’re secondary… in fact, a parent can do more for a child in Heaven, than even on the earth. There’s an interest, [in regards to your loved ones in Heaven], they’re your personal saint…”

Caritas Community October 31, 2016


October 31, 2016 – Three Caritas kids, Little Tony, with two of his sisters Victoria Maria, and Lucy Christina are with their mother as they place their leaf in the fire. The burning of the leaf on Hallows Eve is a tradition that a Friend of Medjugorje felt a deep inspiration to start 20 years ago. The leaf represents our life and through the burning of this leaf, we pray to leave all the imperfections and sinful tendencies behind.  Much more is covered on the burning of the leaf here…


Our Lady said on October 25, 2014:

“…Pray in this time of grace and seek the intercession of all the saints who are already in the light…”

The Caritas Community gathered in our cemetery last night and remembered our loved ones, the saints that have died before us. Names like, John Jacob, the little ones, Aunt Diane, Samuel David, Zio Greg, Andrea, Baby Pipp, Papa Tony were heard again and again as we recalled those of our community who are living our way of life now, to perfection for eternity. St Paul said:

“…I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith. Now a crown of glory awaits me…” 2 Timothy 4:7


A Friend of Medjugorje has said that for the Caritas Community, to lay here in this cemetery, is the final proof that one has made it. It may seem strange to think that the goal of an entire life is to be laid in a specific place of ground. As many who are now beginning communities because of They Fired the First Shot 2012, are finding out, that community life is not easy. This is especially true for the Caritas Community being saddled also with a worldwide mission to operate. But, an entire life of labor and toil, with joys sprinkled throughout everyday, create a connection to the land that one wants to leave their mortal remains in the same land that all who come after them will work and labor and toil.

When we remember those who have died before us, we in reality have “re” membered them. They become a part of who we are again, and we remember that they are Community, only living “the Way” in Heaven, doing more for us now, than when on the earth. They are as a Friend of Medjugorje said above, our personal saints,1 from a life and a heritage that comes at a price of sacrifice, but receives compensation that is beyond expectation.

To all the friends of Caritas, we remembered as well those of you have carried the death of a spouse, a child, a mother or father in the daily burden of your life, as well as those who contributed to the successful Retooling.

“Re”member that tomorrow, November 2, Our Lady will appear to Mirjana and speak a message to us on the day of prayer for nonbelievers. Be in prayer tonight, through the night, and in the early hours of the morning as we await Our Lady and what She is need of telling us during this pivotal time in history. A Friend of Medjugorje has asked that we reiterate the call to be praying especially for peace during this time.
